Getting Some Sunshine and Workout

Since the Movement Control Order (MCO) in March, we haven’t been able to visit our favourite parks or go for a short hike at Tugu Forest.  I really miss going out for some workout and soak in the sun.  Do you know that sunshine has many health benefits?  Healthy sun exposure as a result of being outdoors can prevent some serious chronic diseases by exposing you to Vitamin D.  Sunshine helps to protects against depression, insomnia, and an overactive immune system.  A high level of vitamin D in the bloodstream can also boost memory and protect against dementia.

Being outdoors is a great way to stay healthy and feel refreshed throughout the day.  It has been raining almost every day last week.  We planned on checking out this lil park near our home first thing on Sunday morning but alas, it started to rain until about 11am.  So when the sun started to peek out, we quickly changed into our exercise gear right after hubs and Ashley were done with their online Sunday mass at 11.30.

This lil park has been around for years but this is the first time we visited it.  The park is located beside the Sri Petaling LRT station.  It can be accessed via the car park area or the entrance which is about 500 m away from the LRT station.  There is a pond here and to reach the top of the little hill, we have to take the stairs or run up using the wheelchair-friendly path.  Though it seems a little quiet here, it is a good place to do some running to pump the heart.

The pond at the park.  Hubs told me that about 17 years ago, he came here to let go of a turtle that we have been keeping as a pet.  It grew pretty big and there wasn’t a space for it.  I wonder if the turtle is still here.

The top of the hill overlooks the Bukit Jalil stadium.

Monkey bar near the pond.  She never misses the chance to go on a monkey bar and could swing from one end to the other effortlessly.

We will definitely visit this park again.  Sunshine is always good for the soul.

Let’s say you feel hungry on a lazy Sunday and with just a few taps on your phone, someone will show up on your doorstep with the food you want.

Do you know that you can have fresh, delicious, succulent crabs cooked and delivered to your home? 8 Crabs, an award-winning crab delivery that sends piping hot Sri Lankan crab dishes delivered to your doorstep within 1 hour.  They are the only seafood import wholesale and largest crab delivery service in Singapore using grade AAA premium Sri Lankan crabs.

Chilli crab stir-fried with an award-winning recipe to achieve a thick, savoury sauce. It has the perfect blend of sweet, salty and spicy and best eaten with steamed or fried mantou.

Black Pepper Crab, a staple of Singapore’s street food stalls and is one of the country’s most iconic dishes.  The crabs are deep-fried first and then smothered in a thick, rich oyster sauce spiced with peppercorns, chillies and ginger.

Salted Egg Crab served in a generous amount of rich salted egg yolk sauce that is infused with chili padi for a slightly spicy kick.

Why Order from 8 Crabs?

Crabs naturally travel about 500m every night and prefer to live alone. However, crab farmers breed many crabs in a confined space in order to be profitable. This causes the crabs to get stressed very easily in captivity as many farms cannot replicate their natural
habitat.  When stressed, crabs produce ammonia, which is a sign of decomposition
of seafood.  Most restaurants purchase farmed crabs because they are cheaper. As a
result, they use highly fragrant gravies to cover up the ammonia smell.

8 Crabs sources their wild catch crabs from Sri Lanka and has a team of experienced crab graders to grade the crabs to ensure that they offer the best quality crabs that are free from ammonia taste to their customers. Sri Lankan wild catch crabs are meatier, bigger and taste better.  Their crabs are air-flown daily, cooked by 5-star chefs daily to guarantee the best flavour and taste, and delivered within 1 hour. They also have a one driver to an order policy across our 12 kitchens island-wide to uphold their promise of One Hour Crab Delivery.

How To Go Low Carb When Eating Hawker Food

Whenever I have my cravings for some hawker food such as curry noodles or fish head noodles, I would order the soup with everything else except the noodles.  Then I would cook my own shirataki noodles and add them to the soup.

Just some time back, I miss eating the fish head noodles so I went to the coffeeshop and bought a packet of fish head noodles soup which consists of a few pieces of fish head / meat, vegetables and tomatoes. The soup sourish is very flavourful.  When I got home, I boiled a packet of the shirataki noodles which I bought from Aeon Jusco and added them into my bowl of fish head soup.

Rinse the shirataki noodles under tap water for a minute, boil a pot of water and add the noodles in.  Stir the noodles for about 3 minutes and it is ready.

Just add the shirataki noodles to my bowl of fish head soup.  Yummy comfort food that is keto-friendly.

Online Exams During Movement Control Order

Missy’s school has been giving online lessons daily, from 8.30am to 4.30pm.  Besides the usual classes, she also has online singing class, PE, Aikido and Netball.  Yes, even sport activities are carried out online.  She attend the online classes in her bedroom.  I can hear the ball being dribbled from her room on the day that she has netball practice.  I must commend the school for carrying out all these online.  It is good to keep the children busy and active.

So the school has scheduled a mid-term exam last week, starting from Tuesday until today.  This is a first for her and definitely for me too.  She brought the laptop downstairs and it has a better internet connection.  All the students have to turn on the camera, use a headphone and log in to exam.net to do the exam.

She told me that she prefers to do the exam in her school.  Can’t blame her actually.  The government has announced that the Form One to Four students, Year Five and Six pupils, Remove class students and Form Six Semester 1 students will return to school on 15 July 2020.  Missy is happy to hear this and can’t wait.  Although we have not received any letters from the school yet, I am sure missy’s school will be following the schedule.

Apple-shaped people can use a waist trainer to create a more defined waistline and emphasize their bust, while those with a rectangle shape can benefit from more curve definition and more of an hourglass shape.
  • Helps to lose weight by managing the food portions while you are wearing them. It can prevent the stomach from expanding too much when eating.
