Hyo Sun Korean Restaurant at The Curve

안녕하세요

Went out to The Curve to have dinner and I wanted to get some stationary for my 2018 planner. While walking we notice there are some new restaurants around and we decided to give a try at Hyo Sun Korean Restaurant. This Korean Restaurant located at The Curve, 1st floor, food concept is similar to KyoChon. Their speciality is also the Korean Fried Chicken.

Currently, they are having promotions, Honey Chicken Set with unlimited rice refill is RM10.90. Asian Chicken Set also unlimited rice refill is RM10.00.

I chose Honey Chicken Set because I feel the Asian Chicken Set is a bit like our Malay chicken rice. Of course for the price of RM10.90 is quite worth it to me because I have rice, chicken, soup, Kimchi (which is my favourite) and a dessert. The Honey chicken is actually very nice and is very crispy. I think they freshly cook because we were informed that we need to wait about 10 minutes for the chicken to be ready.

My husband chose the Honey Drumstick and also Crispy Drumstick. Each flavour cost RM11.50. My husband says both flavours are very good and the Crispy drumstick is really very crispy. He is very satisfied with the chicken taste.

Whoever visits Korean Restaurant, cannot be not ordering the Kimchi Soup. However, if I re-visit this restaurant again, I might not order the Kimchi Soup. The Kimchi soup portion is big and can share with 3 or more people. Is not very expensive too, such a big bowl soup cost RM13.90 with Toufu, chicken breast meat and vegetables inside. I will not order again because the soup taste is quite disappointed. Is not what I expected. I not sure why but it tastes weird. We did not finish the soup at the end.

Overall actually the chicken is nice. We will definitely come back for the chicken. However, if I was given a choice to choose between KyoChon and Hyo Sun, of course, I will still choose KyoChon because to me, the chicken is nicer, and the rice tastes nicer too. In terms of pricing, of course currently, Hyo Sun is cheaper because the price has included GST and they do not charge service charge currently.

My Fuchiko x Hello Kitty is also enjoying the food too. Hope they can improve their Kimchi Soup one day.

Wonderful Christmas Celebration in Year 2017

안녕하세요

Merry Christmas everyone! Today is boxing day so everyone has an additional day of Christmas Celebration. Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas celebration with your loved one.

This year Christmas, I have lots of fun and is definitely a memorable one. It is also our 1st-month anniversary as a husband & wife. We celebrate our Christmas earlier. I bought a Gold Class ticket for Star Wars movie for his Christmas present. This little old boy enjoys his Christmas present so much because is his favourite movie.

The next day, I bring my mom to One Utama to just have casual shopping as I was on leave. After married, I am so not used to staying away from my parents. I miss them so much. Thank god we are not staying very far, is just like 15 minutes away. I really appreciate my father in law and mother in law because they live in a modern thinking lifestyle, they allow me to go back anytime if I want to. They both respect our privacy. My mother in law always tells me, if we have our own plan just inform her earlier then she will arrange her own plan with my father in law. Of course, currently I still not use to it with my new family even though me and my husband have been together for 11 years. I believe I will settle down in a few more months because I have a great in-law that makes me feel warm.

So, while window shopping with my mom, Take the opportunity to snap One Utama Christmas decorations. This year One Utama decorations are full of white cloud and snow. Is simple yet sweet. Life can be simple as long as is full of sweet memory.

Thereafter few days, my office has Christmas celebrations. I have a wonderful gathering with my office colleague as I am based at the site, so I hardly go into office headquarter. So we manage to have a great time and great food and great dessert.

On the actual of Christmas, we have a family one day trip to Genting Highland. Mommy is complaining that she hasn’t been Genting for 10 over years. So we decided to bring her up for a day trip. Although there aren’t many activities up there because the theme park is closed for renovation but we manage to experience the Christmas feel in First World Hotel. Snoopy is in Genting Highland! Genting has this theme which is “Tour The World With Snoopy”. This “tour” started on 1st November 2017 until 1st January 2018. I feel so lucky we manage to visit the “tour” before it ends.

They have this 3D SkySymphony show at the certain timing. I and my husband managed to enjoy the show while waiting for my parents to finish their Casino experience. Is so nice and cute and also very beautiful. I feel so lucky.

After the lovely Snoopy world tour end, we visited Premium outlet because I wanted to buy a Kipling backpack as my Cath Kidston backpack has torn off. I will be travelling to Singapore next year end of January to attend Anthony Robbins talk. So in order to have a durable and light backpack, Kipling is the best choice. Kipling at Premium outlet having sales, they have 25% off and on top of the 25%, you will enjoy additional 20% discount. So original price for my backpack is RM769.00. So after discount is RM464.40. I love my pink monkey =P. The pencil box is cheaper, They have 40% discount and on top of the 40%, you will enjoy additional 20% discount. So original price is RM169.00 so after discount is RM81.12. Christmas present for myself.

So we went back home with sweet memory, feeling happy and loved. Of course, everybody is very tired especially my brother because not only he is having bad cold flu, he has to drive all of us and when we are on the way back, we were stuck in bad traffic. Holiday tour is also a bad traffic day because when the holiday ends, everybody is travelling back too.

I fully utilise my 2017 Christmas. Filled up the Christmas with full of love. Not only that, I also have additional Christmas present from my mommy and daddy. Souvenir from Thailand. Starbucks Christmas tumbler and Thailand version tumbler. This year Thailand has this promotion where the customer who purchase 2 tumblers and will get a free Christmas bag. So mommy knows I am a Starbucks collector, so she bought 2 tumblers for me. Love you, mommy.

Life is beautiful and I am lucky that I have a life full of love and peace.

Symptoms of Depression!

안녕하세요

Recently the biggest news on the television is about the K-Pop singer Kim Jong Hyun suicidal case. He left a note saying that he felt “broken from inside” and his depression has taken over his body where he couldn’t defeat it anymore.

I am not a big fan of Kim Jong Hyun but I feel sad because he is not very lucky like me. I was once a victim of depression but I might be at the very early stage because with the encouragement and advice from my colleague, I manage to go thru my bad time and I manage to escape out from the dark box.

Why do I say I was once a victim of depression because I was going through the list of the 10 Common symptoms of depression

  1. Feelings of helplessness and hopelessness. A bleak outlook—nothing will ever get better and there’s nothing you can do to improve your situation.
  2. Loss of interest in daily activities. You don’t care anymore about former hobbies, pastimes, social activities, or sex. You’ve lost your ability to feel joy and pleasure.
  3. Appetite or weight changes. Significant weight loss or weight gain—a change of more than 5% of body weight in a month.
  4. Sleep changes. Either insomnia, especially waking in the early hours of the morning or oversleeping.
  5. Anger or irritability.  Feeling agitated, restless, or even violent. Your tolerance level is low, your temper short, and everything and everyone get on your nerves.
  6. Loss of energy.  Feeling fatigued, sluggish, and physically drained. Your whole body may feel heavy, and even small tasks are exhausting or take longer to complete.
  7. Self-loathing. Strong feelings of worthlessness or guilt. You harshly criticize yourself for perceived faults and mistakes.
  8. Reckless behaviour. You engage in escapist behaviours such as substance abuse, compulsive gambling, reckless driving, or dangerous sports.
  9. Concentration problems. Trouble focusing, making decisions or remembering things.
  10. Unexplained aches and pains. An increase in physical complaints such as headaches, back pain, aching muscles, and stomach pain.

When I was going thru the symptoms, I realise out of 10 symptoms, 8 symptoms are happening to me. I do enjoy being alone, I hate communicate with people, I don’t want to meet people. My mind is full of negativity, I hate my life so much. Whatever happening I will always think is bad. I always feel that if tomorrow god ends my life, I will just accept it because I am useless.

Found some of the images of quotation how depression victim feels..

Thank god, I am lucky because an angel who is very patient has guided me throughout this bad and negative moment. She introduces me to a book. A book that once a while I will still open up and read it to remind myself to always be gratitude and be grateful for everything that I have now. The book is Super Life Secret codes by Master Sun. So now, every day I am reminding myself to be gratitute because life is very simple. Each time when I wanted to get angry, I will try to change my mindset to positive mindset. I still practising the Super Life Secret Codes because is seriously not very easy. It sounds easy when you are reading but when you are asked to apply it to your life, you often overlook and your bad habit will re-appear. Thank you my angel, thank you Master Sun.

I sincerely pray for Kim Jong Hyun, and hope you rest in peace now in another world. I hope those with similar symptoms please seek help and advic the from expert or talk to your close friends and family before is too late as it will be very difficult to escape from the dark box if you are too deep inside.

 

Healthy Lifestyle with Garmin Forerunner 30

안녕하세요

Few more weeks to go and 2017 will be on our “throwback” list. In the year 2017, I have been through a lot of challenges. Good and bad memories. Good memories, of course, is after 11 years of dating, I’m married to my boyfriend which is also my husband now. That will be the best in the year 2017. I will avoid listing the bad one because I want to avoid negative energy on this blog.

One day, my husband told me that he wanted to start his own business. Asking what is my opinion and I told him, as a wife, I will fully support you because life is too short to be wasted without trying on things that you feel like doing it. To me, I always live a very simple life. Simplicity and minimalist is always my style. That is why, even our wedding dinner, I ensure is the simple dinner with only families and very close friend is invited. Small and simple wedding dinner with only 28 tables.

Now after the wedding dinner, with less commitment, I told him to plan out his business plan and I will support him when he needed. To me, having own business is never in my mind because I never like the business world.

So, while still planning, we feel that we still need to ensure our lifestyle is healthy if not we will not be able to sustain long because doing business you need a lot of positive energy and positive mindset.

There is where we decided to get sports watch to monitor our fitness. Garmin Forerunner 30 for myself and Garmin VivoActive 3 for my husband. Both watches are new on the market. Forerunner 30 cost RM699.00 and VivoActive 3 cost RM1,399.00. Forerunner 30 is more for monitoring your fitness level. As for VivoActive 3, it has more functions.

I wanted a watch just to monitor my fitness level that is why I choose Forerunner 30. Forerunner 30 is a cheaper version of Forerunner 35. Of course, in terms of spec, Forerunner 30 will have fewer functions but is good enough for me.

  • Screen size: 0.93-inch diameter
  • Touchscreen: No
  • Battery life using GPS: 8 hours
  • Battery life in watch mode: 5 days
  • Onboard storage: 7 activities
  • Bluetooth connection: Yes
  • Smartwatch capabilities: Yes
  • Multisport: Running / Cycling
  • Inbuilt heart-rate monitor: Yes

I will just show you how the Garmin Connect data looks like for Forerunner 30. You have all the basic information you needed to monitor your fitness.  So is good enough for me to start my healthy lifestyle. =)

For VivoActive 3, they are using the same Garmin Connect apps, same data, but maybe with more activities like swimming, cycling, running and many more. So I will stick with the simple version sports watch to avoid a headache because I am using is just to monitor my fitness level of running.

As usual, simplicity and minimalist is always my style.

Lunch @ Kiku – Zakura

안녕하세요

Busy with work after my wedding. That is why have not been updating my Kittypiggy blog. My life has been busy because I was busy with work and also busy getting used to my new life. In addition, busy building my husband business.

That day after he met up with his client, he drops by my office to have lunch with me. We decided to go to Great Eastern mall to have lunch. Wanted to eat at the food court but most of the counter is closed. I guess they are close at weekend. So we change our lunch location to Kiku-Zakura which is a Japanese restaurant.

Did not try before because when I visit Great Eastern Mall I always eat food court. So we decided to give a try. The concept is like Rakuzen, they have set lunch as well. The pricing is a bit higher compare to Rakuzen.

The Appetizer already cost RM26.00. Is nice but I feel is not so worth it. The Green tea standard is RM2.00 per cup and is refillable.

This Saba and Sushi set taste good. Soup is nice, is just that I feel weird the salad they gave is Thousand Island salad dressing. Normally Japanese Restaurant salad will come with Sesame salad dressing. So the salad is out. This whole set is RM28.00. Still reasonable to me.

This Beef Bento, my husband says is nice as well. Same, the salad spoils everything. This bento cost RM48.00. Not so bad because is beef.

The price stated is not nett. They charge 6% gst and also 10% of service charge. Service is good, before order, they will provide you with a warm towel to wipe your hand. After you finished, they provide you warm towel again to wipe your hand as well. Service wise is good.

Time flies, tomorrow is Monday again. So instead of complaining Monday Bluez, I decided to start doing planning for tomorrow.

Happy Sunday~~

Yes, We Are Married!

안녕하세요

Have been missing for few months because of busy preparing for my big day. Wedding preparation is seriously crazy. Is so tiring but of course is a fun day too. Celebrating our big day with our beloved family and very close friend.

25th November 2017, there is where I begin my new journey, have my own new family. To be a good wife. 02nd October 2006, is where we started our love story. We have gone through a lot of things. Happiness and sadness. Of course, nothing is perfect, we both have our own weaknesses but the most important is we learn to compromise, learn to communicate with each other and we learn to be open to each other. There is still a lot of things to learn, so we both are constantly learning.

We did not have a very huge and grand wedding ceremony and dinner, but we have a very warm and full of love ceremony and dinner. 27 tables that consist of both side family and very very close friends. We really appreciate all of them taking their precious time off to celebrate our big day.

Of course, the day will not be smooth and success without our videographer, Gary & Alvin from Armadale Weddings. Our photographer Hanz from Omelette and our driver of the day Khoo from Rent a VW Kombi or Bettle in Malaysia. I can’t wait to see our video and also our photos capture on the day. As for our driver Khoo, we both seriously appreciate your patient and time. Never rush us while we took photo with the lovely car.

Hanz has posted some photos on his Facebook page. Hope to see more soon.

Glass Bottle For Essential Oil Drinks

안녕하세요

I am new in essential oil and I am also learning how to use essential oil. Not only for myself but also to help people who needed. So, I have been attending courses and also doing a lot of research about essential usage.

I have been consuming Lemon essential oil in my drinks. Earlier days, I was using Tupperware plastic bottle. Then I saw this article from Glasstic Water Bottle that undiluted essential oils can eat through plastic and even diluted oils will degrade plastics over time.

So recently BROS has launched their new products which are BROS VASO. This bottle is glass bottle with varieties design and sizes. You can find it at One Utama Parkson and they are having a promotion with 10% discount. The 400ml cost RM43.90 and the 550ml cost RM45.90. The 630ml, I did not see the price because I was rushing off. If purchase 2 bottles, you will get a free pouch for the bottle. If not, you also can purchase the pouch with the cost of RM15.90 for the small pouch and RM17.90 for the big pouch. There isn’t any discount for the pouch.

I bought the 400ml with fairy tale design because the 550ml is a bit bulky for me and if I am travelling around, it will be good if I can bring along with my essential oil drinks. So I start my Wednesday morning with healthy orange juice with my doTERRA lemon in my juice.
