My Recent Food Diet

Hello friends! 🙂
Are you back on track after the 4 long days of endless back kwa, pineapple tarts and steamboats eating?

Have you thought of eating clean to cleanse your body for those weights (grams) you’ve put on after the celebration?

You can start by having more vegetables in your food diet. (Yeah, everybody knows that. It’s common sense.) Let’s keep it simple & easy by starting it with breakfast.

So recently, I was watching some variety programme and my favorite magazine model Sasaki Nozomi was on the show. Then she shared on how she maintain her proportion, e.g. skipping carbohydrates during dinner. Another food diet that she shared was having cucumber for breakfast.

I decided to try out the latter since I’ve tried skipping carbs diet 7~8 years back (and it works on me). 😉

Just cut Japanese cucumber in half and then slice them into stick form. Having plain cucumber can be very boring, so it’s BEST to pair it with miso mayo dip.

The miso mayo dip is so easy to make. Take ½ teaspoon of miso and 1 tablespoon of Japanese mayo and mix well, and done. Enjoy your breakfast! 😀

I just started this diet for 2 days and hopefully this diet works! *fingers crossed*

P/s: Miso paste is not only for making miso soup, you can also use it to make dip and even for marinating meat. 🙂

Hello everybardy, Gong Xi Fa Cai, Hong Bao Na Lai (恭喜发财,红包拿来)! 😀

I’m sure everyone back home in Singapore is celebrating & enjoying the Chinese New Year. (:

Why?

My Facebook & Instagram feeds are bombarded with food and wefies. And I just received a call from my family, my dad mentioned he made fish maw soup.. which is my favorite dish. FML

Knowing I can’t have the food, I’m thinking of how to counter attack this battle. Lol

By the way, my exciting February has been good. We went to DisneySea 2 weeks back and Hakone over the weekend. Will update more on the 2 trips together to save time for you (reading) and me (typing). 😀

Alrights, I’m going to prepare kimchi hotpot for dinner along with sashimi salad. CNY must eat fish to ensure there’s abundance for the year.

Meanwhile, enjoy all the bak kwa, prawn rolls, pineapple tarts and steamboats BUT don’t complain that you’ve gained XX weight and should start dieting.
NO USE OK.

Lol *just kidding*

HUAT AH!

Exciting February!

I welcomed February with a change of hairstyle. 😀

eri-new-hair

Snipped off half of my hair and also darken my hair colors. 🙂

I have been thinking of cutting my hair months ago, but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it because I’ve never had short/medium length hair for more than 10 years (friends around me can guarantee this).

WHY???

When I was in primary school (junior grade?), my brother laughed at my black bob hair and mentioned that I looked like a domestic helper. (;__;) This comment somehow traumatized me and I told myself that when I grow up, I must not cut bob and to color my hair.

What triggered me to execute it?

Winter. Yes, because keeping long hair in winter is a bitch.

I had to deal with static electricity when I wrapped muffler around my neck. It gets tangled so easily because the air is so dry. And the time needed to dry my hair after shower is a pain.

Of course, there’s other reasons like I need a new hairstyle, fashion icons’ influence and Y-chan’s request. 😉

Am I happy with the new hairstyle?

YES! My head feels so light now and those problems I mentioned are GONE! 😀 Thankful to my stylist because she did a great job (by not making my face look round) in cutting and choosing of hair colors.

Oh. Ohhh. Ohhh!

February is an exciting month for us because we’re going somewhere this Thursday (follow my instagram for updates!) and also next weekend. 😀

But… I have super bad luck with the weather because it’s going to snow in Kanto region on Thursday and most probably rain at the place we’re going. *sighs*

Hope the weather next week will be clear. (._.)
