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.

Blue Day~~ (Photoblog)

안녕하새요

Another weekend ended. As usual, Monday is always being classified as “blue”.

Today is my Blue day too. Injured my leg after 10KM marathon run on last Saturday. Moving around is not convenient today. So today I will be doing more office task.

While going thru my photography, I was thinking why people always say “Monday Blue”. According to ColorMatters, Blue is embraced as a colour of heaven and authority. Most blues conveys a sense of trust, loyalty, cleanliness and understanding.

While reading further, then only I notice blue is symbolised as depression in American culture.  Now I know where Monday Blue come from.

But, in my opinion, I don’t feel the blue colour is that negative. Is nice and calm. Just like the blue flower. Feel so beautiful and sweet with the mixture of green. So Monday is not so blue anymore =) So, start searching my #ColourfulLife now…

IMPA & Tick Fever

안녕하세요

Gosh, after one week of craziness, finally I am back to myself for now. Seriously, past week is my disaster week. My Monnie baby boy was affected by a virus called IMPA & Tick Fever. Guess what, I never know that this virus exists in this world.

The situation is after he is back from full grooming normally he will be very weak because he is feeling cold (his hair is very short after full grooming). So we did not notice anything wrong with him after few days and he is getting weaker, not eating his food and worst not able to walk as well. There is where we realise something is really not right.

We thought he is just feeling cold and tired.

We decided to bring him to Vet for a check-up. True enough, he is affected by serious illness which is call IMPA and also tick fever. Is so bad that his blood PCV left back 8% whereby normal dog PCV is 29% and above. Worst, doctor was telling me he is in a very critical situation and asking me to get ready myself.

I nearly collapsed in the clinic. I was crying non-stop because I just couldn’t accept with what I have just heard. Can’t do much, I can only pray very hard and be strong for him and at that moment, I seriously still do not know what is the illness, what doctor say is the virus is eating his red blood cell and he needs a blood transfusion immediately. I can only ask the doctor to proceed whatever needed because I just want him to be alive. So at that day, my boy have to be admitted to hospital while waiting for the blood donor.

I drop by around evening to visit him and my heart breaks into pieces when I see him in the cubicle, wanted to go home but I can’t bring him home. Oh my baby, I feel very hopeless at that moment because I just wish I can stay with him.

Stuck inside a small cubicle. 

I went back home with heartbreak feeling. On my laptop and do some research on IMPA.What is IMPA? What are the Signs & Symptoms?

Immune-mediated polyarthritis (IMPA) is a disease in which the immune system mounts an inflammatory response within the joints, causing pain, swelling and difficulty walking. In IMPA, the immune system is inappropriately activated to send white blood cells to the joints. The white blood cells release chemicals and enzymes into the fluid that bathes the joints, disrupting the protective function of this fluid. A diagnosis of IMPA is made after the veterinarian is certain that there is not an underlying infection or cancer that may have triggered swelling in the joints. Because the white blood cells are attacking the joints inappropriately, IMPA is sometimes called an autoimmune disease. IMPA can occur independently or in combination with more severe immune-mediated disease in which other body systems are affected. IMPA is seen more commonly in dogs than cats but can occur in both species.IMPA causes sore, swollen joints; patients are often lethargic and reluctant to move. 

IMPA causes sore, swollen joints; patients are often lethargic and reluctant to move. Frequently the patient will walk only when forced. In the early phase of the disease, the patient may only have a low-grade fever or poor appetite. (http://vetspecialists.com)

Is exactly what happen to my boy. My god! Is an eye opener for all of us about this virus. It nearly kills my boy. With this IMPA virus add on with the tick fever (which is caused by tick bite), they nearly killed me as well.

Poor boy, I thought he can go home as during morning the PCV is 18%, but the PCV drop to 16% at the evening. 

On the 6th day of the admission, I decided to bring him home. I told the doctor I understand the risk that I will be facing, but I just couldn’t leave him there alone with other big dogs. To add on, he is not eating. Doctor have to force feed him. I just couldn’t stand anymore. IMG_9204.JPG

Finally, he is home. Still very weak, but at least he is home with us. 

So he still has to go back to the clinic for PVC checkup every day. So for this week, it will be bit rush as I have to excuse myself from office for about an hour (I skip my lunch) to go clinic. As for todate, his PCV went up to 20%. Just need a few more days to confirm he is really stable.

So, for the dog lovers, please do a lot of tick prevention to avoid the virus. No joke in this as it will take your soul away too. I am lucky because god heard my prayer. Finally, I can get back to my life again.

또 만나요

 

 

Toyota All New Innova Preview

안넝하세요,

It was a wonderful night yesterday as my family and I have the privilege to join the Toyota All New Innova Preview.

We are very close to one of the salesmen as my family is always a Toyota supporter. It terms of car value and quality and services, Toyota is still the best.

My mum has been making a lot of noise that we need a bigger MPV because current MPV which is an Avanza is too small for 7 of us. Guess we are too fat =.=”

So, we got to know that Toyota is launching the new Innova and the salesmen registered us to attend the preview launching, The event was held at KLCC.  This is the first time we experience the preview dinner. It was so grand and the setting up for the event is so wonderful that all of us really enjoy the night.

During that night, there are few activities which are the lucky draw and also international performance. My family was very lucky as out of hundred participants, 2 of our numbers was chosen as a lucky number. We received RM100 touch & go cash and RM200 touch & go cash.

The food was delicious too. Is a refreshment, however, in my opinion, is a very heavy refreshment as towards the end I don’t even need to eat dinner. My mum has decided to go for the Innova. So we shall wait for the launching at Toyota Sales Center.

Some of the picture I manage to capture during the event and is a wonderful experience for me too before ending 2016.
