My Strong by Zumba Routine & The Fight Against Diabetes

Image
I've talked about Strong by Zumba workouts before. Nowadays I can do a Strong by Zumba workout without feeling like dying midway, lols. Those jumping jacks, burpees, push ups..*groans* but now they're awesome (ok, not so much the push ups) because after that, you feel so good, provided you follow through the movements and push the tiredness away. In between, there will be mini breaks so you recharge a bit before going into full swing again. Yesterday, for the first time..my friend joined in because her yoga class was not organised due to not able to secure the venue. So yay, company for two weeks!

So now I have also been working out at home last couple of weeks by watching a few Strong by Zumba related videos. They can't post the whole thing but there are definitely videos that can make you work out bucket loads of sweat. So if you're shy but still want to work out, home workouts are actually good for you too in the privacy of your home.

Of course you can still consider …

Indie Music that Brought Out the Feels in You

I am still not over the power couple on Shadowhunters separating but well, they will eventually get back together. I just know it. Anyway, I shall not be too obsessed over it. I just loved how they tied the memories back to the present times in through flashbacks. We were given the summary how Alec, the always uptight one, began to slowly open up his heart to Magnus even though he was still wary and unsure, and eventually giving in to his feelings on his wedding day no less, despite their different backgrounds. Also, the flashbacks would also make you realise how they were just meant to be with each other like soul mates :) That's why we were not happy with the break up, though it was necessary at that point of time.

I mean come on, who wouldn't be attracted to the charming and powerful warlock. And then pair him with a pretty face....argh, come on! Alec had also received backlash from his mum but he had always stood firm against her. She eventually realised came to accept that…

When You Have to Make Difficult Decisions

Disclaimer: This is a written piece about the relationship of Magnus and Alec aka Malec in Shadowhunters Season 2B Episode 18. If you wish to read, please continue :)

So my heart just broke a million pieces today. I had been looking forward to the last few episodes of the Shadowhunters, and more so for today, because of the Malec heavy scenes. Unfortunately, my heart became heavy as well when I tuned in to Youtube for updates and the second update was about...their breakup..NOOOooOO!!

Technically, we are not too sure if they have broken up because the words were not uttered. Thanks to the manipulative nature of the Seelie Queen 😒, Magnus had to make the difficult decision over his love for a Shadowhunter because now it concerns his people, the group of Downworlders, who over centuries, could not get along with the Shadowhunters and especially the Clave, which is the like the government of the Shadowhunters. Because of a certain mortal instrument, they are now more at loggerheads espe…

Break ups

I love this couple from a tv show and I ship them hard. It's no secret on my blog at least that I love the Shadowhunters book series (The Mortal Instruments one) and now the TV show. But next two episodes won't be the easiest and probably the most challenging for them and the rest of the gang. Okay actually them getting together was already a challenge enough until the penultimate episode. It's just to show it's like any relationships, they go through ups and downs especially when trust is a major issue and they both come from different worlds and are highly respected in their own rights.

Actually I like their storyline in the show despite the rough start and multiple 'I'm pining for you but I can't coz it will mean losing everything' scenes. In the end the heart wants what it desires. In the book though, it gets pretty annoying. I guess it's just her childish writings at time although she's just trying to show his insecurities and this being his…

Dreadful Two Days at Work

The last two days haven't been so great at work finding a piece of damn document that some people have no inkling as to what it was about. But still was willing enough to rummage  go through their files for it. Some couldn't even bothered and just resigned to not having it at all without searching. Look, while only one was important, the rest was just for filing purpose and I've been tasked to ask one by one all the 'big shots' in my department. Only one was giving me some ramblings which basically went one ear in and one out as though this was my fault or my carelessness of not having this document. 

I've explained and also this document was in existence before my time was there so it wasn't so nice to give me 'crap'. And that this wasn't the first time I had a run in with this certain someone. Already her cluster is so 'extra' with documents that I don't even need but for their own filing and insistent that I keep the originals afte…

Being Broke AF, Phone Stopped Working & All Other Misery

Image
So it hasn't been a great week last week. I was broke af and I was barely surviving although I managed to have some money I received from my online shop which helped me to stay afloat at least a day or two. And then the cycle starts again until Saturday where thankfully my brother got his salary earlier so he gave me my portion.

Honestly, I was so poor I couldn't buy the bread, which was already discounted by the way, because it would exceed the budget that I had. Did I feel good about it? Of course not. But I didn't let it go to my head because it would just amplify my misery. I just tell myself that I will get over it. 

Also, I don't want to be in this situation again because it's just not pleasant. But it does make me more  aware of what I should be doing to not be that broke again. I know that I could possibly be in that situation again which makes me more determined to not move backwards but look forward instead. 

Oh and to add on to my misery, my phone suddenly …

Half the Year Gone..& Not Feeling so Great

Hang tight, this is going to be a long post.

I didn't start off July 2017 well because I felt down and out because half the year is gone and what have I achieved so far. But it's starting to pick up slowly and while finance wise, it's still a disappointment no matter how much effort I have put in, I still didn't want to give up. Yes sh*t happens in life and then things go south again but it doesn't mean I should stop and then forever be in this state. I am determined to move forward and continue to do my best. I must have a sense of direction in life and the journey itself can't be all smooth sailing.

So what I did was to write a blog post, uploaded some new pictures in my online shops' galleries and then I got an order query next day, hehe. And some more too. Sometimes you just need to give yourself the push to get over the rut. It's not going to be a quick fix and may take awhile but the point is to keep moving and moving on from the past and create a b…
