Back running

It had been (and still) a hard weeks for me for the first trimester.. 8 weeks and having bad morning and evening sickness.. I tried to keep my daily as normal as possible, but it’s quite challenging.

I feel tired all the time , vomiting and headache. I miss running. I miss being outside and sweating.

And…today i decide that all this morning evening sickness must end. I must push myself and start workout again. Of course it gonna be very very slow and i think i will just do my power walk today, see how it goes. Hope i can slowly gain back my energy and stamina. While baby still very fragile, i know my priority..

The more active and fit you are during pregnancy, the easier it will be for you to adapt to your changing shape and weight gain. It will also help you to cope with labour and get back into shape after the birth.

Ah.. can’t wait for the clock to hit 5.30 🙂

Everything in short – and i am with my new life :)

February 2014 it is.

What happening during my absence in this blog? I get married on August 2013, went to Bali for honeymoon, having my second reception on December 2013 and…. now 7 weeks pregnant  🙂

Well everything happen sooo fast and im not sure if i register it well in my brain yet haha. But I am so blessed and thanking God with the gift and the life He choose for me.

Now life is full with planning for our little family. Life will be different and more and more fun!

Have a blessed Wednesday everyone 🙂

How to save money on…food..in Kota Kinabalu.

Food in KK is really expensive. You won’t get any complete food if you only have RM3, at least you need to have RM10 on hand if you want to eat outside.

Saving on food is one of the easiest way to do. Some people says when you stay alone, it’s cheaper to eat outside than cook your own meal. But nah, that’s just an excuse actually haha.
I only spend around RM40 weekly to buy groceries and it can lasts more than a week actually. Let me give you some example :
Veggies 1 : RM2 ( for 3 meals)
Vegge 2 : RM 3 ( for 3 meals)
Chicken : RM 4 ( 3 or 4 meals)
10 eggs : RM4.50 (5/6 meals)
frozen food : RM8 ( 8 – 10 meals)
Fish : RM12 (4 -5 meals)
Others : RM10
If you eat outside:
Breakfast ( Mee + telur mata ) + drinks : RM5.50
Lunch  : RM8
Dinner : RM8
If you have RM40, eating outside can lasts u only 2 or 3 days. But if you cook, it can lasts for more than a week.  You only spend RM50 the most per week if you cook. So it’s only maximum around  RM200 per month. And you can eat healthy and delicious food!
Having your meal outside you will spend around RM350 or RM400 monthly. See the difference? You can save up to RM200 per month, which is RM2,400 per year!
And again what you can buy for RM2,400 ? You can settle your life insurance :).
Well it’s an individual choice and i just happen to choose to spend wiser and save a lot so that maybe someday i can live my dream 🙂
Happy Monday people!

Being 30

Being 30 in 2 months plus now and i’m already feel the stress ha ha. I’m no longer so called women-in-their-20s but move a level up :).

When i was in my 20s weekend means go outing having fun with my friends. Thinking which movies haven’t watch, do my hair do my nails.  And after work will waste with hanging out with friends at some cafe.
Now weekend is about planning and executing. Trying to squeeze all the time i have to get more info, knowledge and money :D. Movie day turned to seminars, classes or reading some investment book. Haha. Well looking at the amount of saving in my account , it won’t survived me long enough, and im already 30! 
But of course i will always have time for myself, well i have to reward myself for all the hard work i did hehe. Like going for a cruise this weekend, oh i so can’t wait! 🙂 

How to increase Dropbox storage for free

I am new to Dropbox since i am very loyal to Google Drive 😛

But since i am looking to new storage of my too many stuffs, i finally accepting dropbox in my life :),but it only give 2G free storage when you first join. Unlike Google Drive which gives me 15MB now – as i said i am very loyal to Google drive he he.

But wait, i can actually increase my Dropbox storage, and i just did!
What i do is just login to my Dropbox, go to Bonus Space, and i simply invite my friend. Note a friend, not friends hehe. And walla! My storage increased to 50GB!

If you need more space , why don’t you try this trick 🙂

What is actually in my mind..

I am a programmer or some people call it system developer. My work is to do the thinking other people don’t want to do- that’s what i do for a living. I think.

I like to think and do calculation and making logic. My judgement is only based on math and logic and structure. If the math is correct, does it logic? If its logic will it provide a good structure for the foundation?
When all lead to YES, then i will start typing my codes, hundreds and thousands of lines, to build one perfect system for the client.

When i work, i love quite uninterrupted place. Where i can do all the math inside my brain before my fingers start moving typing the codes. When the logic become hard, my brain work really hard and i will be easily annoyed even with simple not-so-funny conversation.

Programmers is not weird person, they just being themselves, thinking and structuring. Well at least they are more realistic than some people who converse a lot or very loud but well an empty can. Not all, some people can be very loud but they have the brain or at least vision in life.

I might be very quiet ( sometimes ), that is when i analyzing new people or people i don’t really know. I prefer to absorb all the talking rather than do the talking. Sometimes i just laugh at some stupid boasting talk some people will do to impress other people. Gosh, maybe the saying “It’s better to keep silent and be thought as a fool , than to speak and remove all doubt” is indeed true 🙂

So when some people very quiet, don’t simply judge them by saying they have the cruelest mind or cold or stupid or do not mingle or whatever negative judgment you have in mind. before you put any judgment on other person, make sure you are perfect. If not, you just another dog who bark the loudest but doesn’t bite. After all action is better than just mere talking rite? 🙂

September ends..

..and it’s almost Christmas 🙂

Well this year had marked lots of interesting phase in my life some good some sad but most of it happy 🙂
And yes, i finally turned 30 this August, and i can put my ‘oh-im-30-okey’ face on me when i go for a meeting with clients.he he 😛
They say 30s is the new 20s- depends how we see it. Am i still living like in my 20s? Hmm maybe some..yea? Well in my 20s i love posting about how i feel cool partying or live like New York’s girl but now, i don’t like to tell people about my life anymore. I mean, i wanted it to be private and have a real life, instead of boasting here and there in my blog or Facebook on something i didn’t really have.
But maybe i can say i am wiser? ha ha ha..am i allowed to say that? 😀
Life is different in my 20s where i’m kind of still searching for something that i wanted to do or to be in my life. And somehow i have to put and end of it, i have to decide(or gamble) on whatever decision i need to do – to move on with my life. Career, family and relationship – all checked 🙂
And finally i married my best friend :). A very simple yet sweet wedding like i wanted it to be. Looking forward for lovely 2014 to give more blessing in my life journey because i love every bit of it!
