Greasy food for fuel, hemp coupons, background history and many more!

12 Jul

Helloooooooo anyone there??? I didn’t have time to post anything yesterday though I wasn’t that super duper busy, just lots of stuff to take care around the house. Anyway how’s Monday going for you? Mine started off in a sleepy way. I think I was half dozed thru half of the morning and maybe even now….so sorry if this post doesn’t quite make sense in some ways.


Anywayyyyyyy, as I mentioned at my last post, Ken and I had a birthday dinner with my friends at a Chinese restaurant. Too lazy to type detail, I’ll just post up the pics.

The restaurant

super crowded. Trust me this scene was taken after we were almost around 8:45-9pm!!

some Chinese writing display right in front of our table

Seafood veggie soup

Actually my friends ordered some fried calamari but I didn’t take a pic.

black pepper beef

stir fry shrimps

Seafood Crispy noodles with veggies - I only had some of the veggies and the seafood meat

fried crabs - apparently this is the restaurant's most popular dish - most tables had this dish

Another plate of crabs - this one had some sauce

steamed whole fish

clams - didn't have any of these- so oily...

some chicken...also super greasy

veggies - Ong Choy I believed (watercress)

fried tofu

fish fillets - very very salty....ugh...I only had a bite of it.

complimentary orange as the dessert

The birthday cake - Green Tea Mousse Cake I believe

my portion

after - I only ate the cake part & the fruit piece..left the creamy/mousse part behind. Not a big fan of those

We had about 11-13 people sharing these foods. Basically I only had a bite of everything and I skipped the white rice. The food was quite greasy so I figured I went easy with those. We came back home around 10pm, showered and went to bed.


We kept hitting the snooze button when the alarm went off around 4:15am. We almost almost wanted to skip the beach run but I forced myself to get up and we went…and I’m glad we did. According to my Garmin, I had a better pace today than yesterday!

Saturday run - warm up, run, cool down (power walk) combined together

Sunday - warm up & run

Sunday - cool down power walk

Pretty much same distance, but I think I had a better pace on my Sunday run. Guess those greasy food from the day before fueled my run, huh? Haha..

On our way back, we had to put in some gas at our usual gas station. However, I saw this one on our way and it seemed cheaper if we paid by cash. (Read: CASH).

Cash means atm/debit card...D'OH!

We figured our ATM/Debit would be counted as cash as well since that was how on the other place that we went last time. BUT, it wasn’t like that. So we ended up have to pay $3.13/gal for regular gas…..blah! And we used our debit card, which had NO REWARD/POINTS, while if we went to the other one per our original plan, we would at least get $3.02 even using credit card AND got 3% cash back from our Amex! Lesson: read the sign carefully!

Got home after picked up some groceries on the way back and had breakfast!

oats are back!!! How I missed it soo much!!! And Kashi cereal!

btw my friend M (the b'day girl yesterday) gave me these mini chillies from her backyard. Apparently despite their size, they're SUPERRRR SPICY! I need to figure out what to make with these.

after last night greasy dinner, I was craving for plain veggies


rice congee for my sick brother

And we went to my in-law’s place for dinner. Similar food as usual so I didn’t bother to take pic.

I cranked up half ass P90X Chest & Back and Ab Ripper X this morning. Not sure why, I felt suuuuuuuuper tired and sleeeeeeepy…very hard for me to get up this morning, though I went to bed extra early like 9:30pm!! But I woke up at least 2 times before my alarm went off at 4:15 am.

Speaking of which, I found out from another blogger something about the girl in P90X Chest & Back. I always admired her fitness level in this Chest and Back video. She’s not buff nor super ripped, just nicely toned and fit. After I read something about her other profession, which being a porn star in a super X rated hard core porn video, my imagination just went wild. I’m being totally honest here! The blogger also posted a link to one of her video…BUT….I SERIOUSLY DIDN’T WANT TO WATCH IT! Enough said. It’s bad enough that my mind already imagining all these porn scenes of her. I don’t want to ruin her image in my mind totally! Don’t get me wrong, I am not looking down on her or anything like that, but more like I feel sorry and sad for her but at the same time I can’t help feeling dirty about her either. This is my very honest opinion. Making a living can be very tough for certain people and they can just do whatever it takes as long they get paid decent money.

Ok moving on….I have to wrap this up soon.
Today I received 2 coupons from Living Harvest Tempt from winning Lynn at The Actor’s Diet Giveaway last Friday (Thanks Lynn and Living Harvest!)

one coupon of free pint of Hemp ice cream and one coupon of free hempmilk!

This product is made from hemp seeds (Ken always jokes them as marijuana seeds..LOL), so it’s dairy free, soy free, vegan, gluten free, kosher and non GMO. I can’t wait to look for stores that carry these products and give them a try! More info here.

1. How do you feel when your admired person turned out to have some background history that’s totally different from what you expect?

2. Have you tried any hemp seeds products yet?

3. What spicy food/recipe do you like?

    2. nope.

    3. hmm. maybe like spicy indian food. tabasco on eggs is nice.

    in regards to your comment:
    i’m 5’4′

    i train using crossfit. it’s fun and intense. i like it a lot. it depends- i don’t think you’ll die, just try the class out if you want to- you can scale the intensity to how you want to do it. and this way you can see if you like it or not. some people think it’s too random and there is no progression in strength like a regular muscle building program.
