A Long Weekend

It’s a public holiday today (Independence/ Merdeka Day) and knowing that tomorrow (mon) is a public day off, is just so comforting! To me that is…

I love long weekends/ public holidays… A good reason to stay indoors, staring at the idiot box snacking away, doing absoutely NOTHING is just heaven!
Yeah, i so treasure doing-nothing moments nowadays, absorbed with DIY manicure/ pedicure, reflecting my week, planning my monthly finances slooowly, doing the housechores laaaziiily… All the free and easy to-dos, and especially away from office paperwork, is just bliss!!
An excuse to behave slooow and lazy.. Heh!

Ratatouille

Or vegetable stew (they call it) was the one pot dish i wanted to try cooking couple of times ago, due to work and busy schedules, i only get to try this on Sat.
There are a few ways to cooking this… And still at beginner’s level, i of course chose the easiest method and was surprised how easy it was to prepare, and it turned out edibly okay too! Though more practice needed to perfect the taste and to not over-soggy it.

                   
I delibrately cooked 3-4 servings to keep for Monday’s lunch and maybe Wed’s dinner. This stew can be eaten on its own, served with meat/ fish or rice or tossed with pasta. Yum!

New Working Hours

My employers has just set new working hours for all of us starting next week, so what are the new hours?
It’s 9am to 5pm! They cut back an hour earlier… Wahoo!

Why? Well, I’m not so sure why this change, but i somewhat have a bad feeling about it, or maybe i’m just overthinking too much… So don’t know.

Anywho… I’m happy with this new hours as i get to avoid the daily 6pm rush hour human traffic! And a good reason to cook and experiment new dinner recipes. *wide smile*

Junk Food Crave

I noticed a change of appetite for past 1 1/2 weeks, me always hardly into junk or super sweet foods, hardly ate ALOT suddenly became a food junkie!

My usual daily food intake -Since teenage days- consists of just breakfast, lunch and dinner. Rarely indulging in-between snacks or tea-time cookies, unless i’m super hungry… But still, rarely.

So here’s my recent daily menu:
Breakfast-Work-Lunch-Work-Chocolates/Snacks/Junk-Work-Snacks-Dinner-Chocolates/Snacks/Junk-Sleep.
What a piggy i’m turning into… Heh!

Actually, am not that bothered… So as long my weighing scale blinks 43-44kg, i’m happy.

Note: And no… I’m not pregnant.

Waiting Edgily

I’m waiting.. Waiting for an answer…
Forcing myself to sit still to wait for a breakthrough… When? I don’t know. What? I know. How? I somewhat know.

Being an edgy and impatient person, waiting for a desperate answer can be frustrating! Till today i’m still learning to wait on HIS timing… HIS faithful timing.

I always yearn for immediate answers, immediate reactions, immediate surprises, immediate news, immediate responses… Yeah that’s me, most times.

More waiting days to come… Sigh.

Times of Worry

Recently i was acting like a worry-wart for few reasons and no apparent reason at the same time.. Whenever i’m down and blue i will hum and sing one of my fave christian song (below) in my head over and over…

My Jesus… I’m found in you,
you’re my Saviour…
You chose me… Before the world.. And you called my name,
I will go with you… Through the valley… I will soar above every mountain,
I will trust your word, deep within my heart… I will live for you…

Chorus:
I know my future in your hands… All of my hopes and dreams and plans,
You gave me strength to live… And faith to succeed,
I believe in you… Because you believe in me.


Somehow the song above constantly moves my heart to remind me of HIS assurance… so enough to soothe my uncertainties..
