Buzzfeed Unsolved

I am so into this and I quite watched everything except all the post mortem series.

And here is an IG post I made!

I really *WISH* that post get heard!! @buzzfeedunsolved @shanemadej @ryanbergara I am psychic I get what is going on! So, ever wonder if those "demons" inside @loeybug's apartment are just some hardcore, badass Angels instead? Bcoz please heard me out, my Angels are "scary" like that. They used to appear as dark shadows the whole time until I get it that I *CAN* see stuff. First, the growl that got Loey very uncomfortable in the bathroom, and the bathroom flooded soon after. I heard that something, someone was warning you to get out. Not some building expert here, but ever consider that your apartment (looks very new, new-ish) is still emitting toxins from building materials? The drinking glass that the "demon" pushed off probably has toxin in it, eg, remaining detergent or something. Burning smell? Maybe those entities are telling you to air your apartment more. Not all the time a literal white heavenly figure desend to warn us of stuff. In some culture people just air their houses (opened windows, let in sun light as an old fashion way to kill germs) the whole time. So much that they consider the modern dryer not a good source to dry clothes. Why I brought this up? I get that it is probably cold at where you are and the apartment is enclosed and the radiator runs. However, just a slight dip in oxygen and higher built up of bacteria in the air can cause a person to feel uncomfortable. I live in the tropics all my life and without aircon, (heard that you lived in a farm/barn house in your youth) being in enclosed indoors still makes me sickish although my friends were all fine and I am in better health then most. There is definitely some others with Loey, just not exactly demonic in a bad way, if not Shane's teeth would have been pulled out or something. To Loey, just nicely and firmly send away those who are not serving you and adding to your life. Say you took a nice bath, drank something that would help you sleep, you don't need them being around (which actually caused you to not sleep). Eventually they will leave you alone. โค #buzzfeedunsolved

Mid-ish October

My last post here is on the 20th of September. But I felt like I haven’t blogged since forever.

The first cool thing is, I haven’t been lighter since 2015!

And last week I was bitten by a dog. I had not idea it was such a strong bite. I thought it was a mere playful nip and went off. After this photo the bruise got bigger than my palm.

It is doing good now. A good 70% of the bruise had cleared up.

Old Yoga mat died and got this. I used to swear by PVC mats until this TPE. The support is perfect and best of all, NO SMELL!!!

Went to the old Ford Factory which is pretty cool. A guide was there telling me stuff which adds to the whole experience.

Decided to do something a little different today!

I also caught Tenki no Ko and #OhMyKokoro~~~ โค โค โค

Sent out some postcards.

Meanwhile I am in the highest level of my Japanese learning. It has only been a month-ish and I am already thinking about how things will be like when I complete the whole series. I will think back fondly about it.

Another post perhaps! โค

How to Start: Intermittent Fasting

First up, Intermittent Fasting basically means to not eat for 12 – 18 hours from the last meal to the next. It is easier than regular fasting coz in those 12 – 18 hours, one would have already spent 8 hours of it sleeping. For more info, check it online! โค

For me the benefit is mad! I am losing 1kg per week as planned and generally I just feel cleaner. I started at 71kg on the 1st of September and I am now at 67.8kg on the 20th of September! And this also help me tendency to snack and over eat.

But I know it is difficult to just change one’s eating habit overnight.

I happened to find a easier way.

I can't believe that I stick to practising Yoga for about 2 weeks! I actually started waking up early, dressed up and work on it!! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’— I used to be such a give-up-er I can sleep till 2pm, get depressed and just melt days into days. Not to mention also overeating. I am only drinking tea and having an apple for breakfast but I can go an hour in the gym!! I got reborned O-M-G. I think the great thing with hitting rock bottom is, you get to see you just have to drop certain things and people in your life. Bcoz those truly matter and love (and honour) you will always remind you of your true self by just being present. And you just really go remember who you are again. When I was a kid, everyone call me a genius with great potential when I said I want to be an astronaut when I grow up. Suddenly I was a science expert. Now, I cannot even tell others my dream coz I already told myself to shut up and not be an idiot. And really, it is totally more logical and possible to be an International Comedian than an Astronaut at this age, space and time. Drinking tea from my favourite Okinawa Red Roof mug and listening to Akata Sun Dunchi. โคโคโค Soon I be the person sitting at a Ryukyuan house relaxing with my slippers off. ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒบ I wonder what is another happy thing I can do for myself today. ๐ŸŒน๐Ÿฐ๐ŸŒน #selflove

A week before starting: Start eating lighter and cleaner. Get your tummy ready. By the time I start, my breakfast was just plain tea and an apple. I agree that this ain’t something sustainable, but I was kinda cleansing myself and I probably had so many extra calories all over my blood stream. When you feel light and ready, start with 16 hours.

First week – Second week: Interestingly, I was just getting so well into this. No discomfort no nothing. I was even to do a 24 hour fast on one of the days.

More to do and some “cheat” meals: I started making my own healthier meals. Carbs or Protein Salads for the veggies and my needed carbs and protein. On some days I do feel under nourished so I will have some Milo/Hot Choco and cookies during my 8 hour eating slot. And I just do cheat meals of fruits after the eating hour if I am still very hungry.

Stuff to take note of: One thing was, there had been a couple of days where I feel like eating A LOT since I fasted. Good thing is, I just don’t find it possible to overeat anymore and I don’t go drinking thick and sugary lattes daily. It was not difficult, things just came together.

I love that I am loving weight uniformally. I used to get to a point of stick arms but still hippo thighs and hips. I am so super happy to be fitting into smaller pants.

And I made delicious vinaigrette today. It is so good.

Cold Days & Yoga

3 more days and it marks living in my new home for a month.

I am liking it so much that I felt like I am on a holiday.

I was living in what they call a matured estate and in my memory, after I turned mid-primary-ish, my brother and me was like the only kids around.

And now, it is young couples everywhere with babies and toddlers. Even teens are a rare sight. My parents are probably also the only very senior folks around.

But it is not like we are very alienated, coz just a little away from us is another original matured estate.

20190830_192806

I took the evening shot last night and compared to about 2 months back, a tall white fence had been put up. I am guessing that more residentials are being built, but there are also people saying that that is a new mall/train station coming up.

Now, into the cold, cold season and Yoga.

20190823_231405

A few weeks back I decided to stop procrastinating and took out some of my exercise stuff. It is true that once something is in sight, one is more likely to work on them. So only keep what #sparkjoy around.

One night I just asked how can I start Yoga and next thing I know, one friend suggested a perfect Youtube Channel and another also living in Singapore told me about this Yoga group doing free lessons all bcoz the people behind it and really passionate about letting as many people as possible get the wonders of Yoga. โค

I had a lot of resistance on Yoga in the past. I always thought that I cannot follow something so slow. And I thought I needed something high impact to be really working my body.

Now, Yoga is like the BEST exercise that I ever started!!!

And after every session I just watch everything Okinawa on TV. Makes my Kokoro so happy.

Random food pic. I was around a new Yoshinoya house and this totally got me back to Nihon. โค Surely someday! โค

20190827_111255

It hadn’t been raining for nearly a month and when it did, temperature dropped A LOT. At one point I was having 33 degrees in my room.

20190827_180547

And so one night I pulled out my old Parka for my night walk. Btw this Parka was actually designed for DAY use. It has UV protection.

It was also so cold, I had hot tea when I came home. It was all only 27 degrees though.

20190827_200534
20190829_163933

Because why yes… I think I just generally freeze outdoors at night, even when it is 30, 31 degrees. And I got a new mesh hoodie. I always wanted a mesh hoodie. Another best thing is really that I got pockets now. โค

20190829_163810

After while I notice that the sleeves are really long. Are these slots for the thumbs? Or just for more airing? This again is designed for day use, has UV protection too.

Now the coolest thing. My persistence on working out and keeping my diet reasonable is helping me lose all the weight. Look how loose my pants became!

20190829_205200
20190829_205335

They were quite fitting at first!! I am just so happy!

And I found out recently that Decathlon has their own Yoga group. This beautiful shape is from their logo. The above is one of their Yoga pants. BEST PANTS IN THE UNIVERSE.

20190830_131038

For more knee cushioning. Check this out Chu!! โค

20190830_145001

And I got a Yoga Block! (Skipping rope for days at the garden outdoor gym.) Wooo, me so serious into this. I thought a solid one for support will be good until, I am pretty good with no block support and instead I use the block for legs lifting. And this solid block can get heavy.

20190830_202201

But it is quite fascinating, I only see cork material in bottles and this is the first time I see and feel such a HUGE block of it.

I have been eating fruits for supper. So healthy. โค

The cute thing about this is, I learn that there are just so many little new things to learn and explore and get curious about every time I get into something new.

Yoga hair??

I did this but after a while it get uncomfortable to lie on them.

New gym hair and so many moles.

I thought the side pony tail will do the job but it gets in the way sometimes. this is also my skinny top. Each time I wear it, people all commented that I look thinner.

Finally today I tied a higher side bun. Works better.

Managed to do 10 sit ups last night. A young couple with babies and prams walked by. They saw their new weird neighbour. โค

20190820_100907

Saw this pretty thing on my morning walk.

20190818_222916

I always have zip lock bags with me during my trips. I think this was left over from 2017??? Somehow it sparks sO much joy, I am just letting it lie around in my room.

Since April I have journaling out my thoughts. And a few nights back, I wonder how things will turn if I focus instead on my abundance instead of wanting more. And I shred up my old stories.

I Released 1kg This Week and New Jogging Routes, And Comedians

I lost a kilogram this week.

Although it is only ONE kilogram, this is the kind of result that I haven’t got for the past year. On 10th August 2018, I started at 75kg. It took me a month-ish to lose just a kg, but the lightest I ever went was 68kg. And then a week or so before 10th August 2019, I was again at 74kg.

Today I am at 71kg, a kilogram lesser from last week.

I am sure this new toe braces are helping. And I am also jogging at least 3, 4 times a week on top of daily gym.

20190810_153931

Basically the theory is that many people walk with their toes not touching the ground and hence they don’t do the full heel, ball of feet and finally toe push off kind of walk. And this went on to affect the position of the hip and back. And while it is OK somewhat, the hip and thighs get thick.

I was totally amazed by the result shown and so I got it.

It is really comfortable to wear too. I had thought it will be terribly annoying.

And I already got 2 more pairs coming. :3

Now, my 3.6km jogging route.

It is actually just beside the road and new to blocks and blocks of high rise residential, but I so appreciate this little bit of grassy hill.

20190807_181836

Another 5km route is to Little Guilin.

I spot Mimosa seed pods for the first time!!

20190809_175524

Little Guilin.

It used to be a quarry but digging stopped when they have to dig under sea level. The place was initially planned to be filled up but after rain water formed this pond, folks thought this is really pretty and they keep it as a park.

It is so cool to think that the whole thing was unintentionally man-made.

Reminds me of Okinawa somehow, same same but different.

Another view.

20190812_203412

Me at Little Guilin at 4 years. I think I looked really matured as a pre-schooler. And then now I am just kiddish. Everything about me grew and only recent years I am growing my Kokoro.

20190809_230806

I just notice that my new pan is sparkly purple. I can’t wait to make pancakes again.

20190814_150021

And!!!! Phil Wang is my new love!!!

20190815_171519

I needed something to hold my fringe up and guess what? This hairband doesn’t work!

But look at plan B. Woohooo!!!

20190815_180449

Scholl compression stocking is really THE bomb. The only pair left is this meshy ones and they are so good. My legs were achy to a point of painful, after an hour plus, I was jogging 3.6km.

20190815_173539

Good night people.
