day 1671 – dimsuming

i don’t recall the last time i ate dimsum, but it’s  safe to say i can now eat them guilt free. my love for malaysian cake, ha gao and rice rolls never changed. switching up the diet has its perks for reasons i can enjoy food with variety. since the switch, my appetite has improved significantly, or maybe it’s just a result of improvement in my overall state of mind. either way, the trend is heading in the right place in multiple aspects of my life 


day 1659 – noodle soup

fourth day going strong on my intermittent fasting and pushing through even at the toughest hours. tracking the calories will always be something i do, but i find i’m enjoying my food much more knowing i can eat in my window. i was craving noodles yesterday but boss got us booster juice by default. still got the feeling for noodles today so went and got my tomato papaya with coworkers. it’s an odd group made of four different departments, but the connection between us has really bolstered lately

day 1605 – hd potluck

this is my second christmas potluck with hd and i’d say i enjoyed this one a lot more than the last. this year, acquaintances became friends and friends became good friends. i set out to accomplish a lot at work this calendar year and certainly i did it. i received year end thank you cards with from the words of my manager and big boss – amazing what you’ve accomplished this year! i made majority of my deadlines in the overworked months, and my break is definitely earned. there’s a lot more in store for me when i return, but for now my job is to recuperate and get ready to rock it in the new year. everyone’s waiting and watching on my comeback year

day 1470 – forkless 

in my packed lunch today is one of my favorites korean bean sprouts that my mom knows i love. eating late lunches means people get dibs on everything, everyday. cutlery especially forks miraculously go missing at the office, but i got to eat my lunch somehow. if all spoons go missing i’ll soon be eating with whatever utensil is left which could be knives or tongs

day 1179 – dumpling master


it’s all about aesthetics this afternoon as i’m perfecting cooking dumplings and making sure it’s cooked to the perfect shade of golden brown. i may be a picky eater, but require nothing fancy nor expensive, just need basic food that’s done the right way. chicken dumplings paired with banana got me through another saturday shift; keeping it simple just like any ordinary saturday

day 1126 – gobble


woke up feeling a tad lightheaded, perhaps the lack of sleep is the cause. after finishing my complexes, i got myself a vanilla latte and fed myself chicken and potatoes for lunch. thinking that spiking my sugar level, eating and upping my blood pressure would help.  also dealt with some bank issue. they finally for it correct after the fourth try; if i have to go into the bank one more time for this purpose, i’d be really angry

day 906 – poached


golfing down on my poached eggs and tofu as fast as i can before heading out to taekwondo. refuelling myself with a protein riched lunch after yet another gym session complete. i am feeling the effects from yesterday but nothing is going to stop me from doing it all over again. i always get asked why i eat like this, but what does “eat like this” really mean? the better question is why do you not “eat like this”? if you haven’t gone through what i have, don’t judge because no one understands what staying healthy really means to me
