Outdoor Pre-Wedding Session

Sunday, August 17, 2008

We had our second photo session for my pre-wedding with William from Fotomalaysia. Me and Hubby had lots of fun during the outing. William brought along Paul and Peggy for the shooting. Five of us had a marvellous time together. We started at 8.30am for make-up in William's place and proceed to our first destination - Heritage Station Hotel and KTM. We reached around 11 a.m plus and spend about 3 hours there. The Heritage Station Hotel is a very classic and full of heritage hotel. I will recommend for those who had never been there to go and have a visit to feel the atmosphere themselves. Thanks to Lloyd for opening the doors for us to capture the beautiful Heritage Station Hotel. We loved every shots that we had taken there. After the hotel and KTM photo shooting, we proceeded to Bagan Lalang and Putrajaya to take some seaside and sunset sceneries. Just simply love my pictures! Thanks everybody who had been there to make this happen. :)

Sunday, August 3, 2008

Today, I broke my diet plan for lunch. I had 2 piece of my favourite Taman Eng Ann's fried chicken, of course without the skin (all given to my Hubby). I was so tempted to have a bite of them. Guess that I can't asked too much since I broke the rule at the first place. I guess the diet plan suggested meat, fried chicken are in that category too. Haha, telling lies to comfort myself. So for today's dinner, I had prepared hard boiled eggs and lemon garlic broccoli. Yum yum, especially the taste of the lemon which bring more flavour to the broccoli. A very appetising recipe indeed.


3 tbsp butter
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 1/2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste, optional


  1. Steam broccoli until tender but firm, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Heat the butter in a heavy nonstick skillet over medium heat; add the garlic and saute for 1 minute.
  3. Add the cooked broccoli, lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste, cooking briefly to combine.


Stir-Fry Ginger Chicken with Siew Pak Choy and Grapefruit

Saturday, August 2, 2008

This is the 3rd day I am trying out the Grapefruit Diet. I had simple breakfast and lunch for three consecutive days. I had hard boiled eggs with grapefruit for breakfast and hard boiled eggs with carrots and grapefruit for lunch due to time constraint and of course due to the reason I am working during weekdays. Therefore, I can't really cooked for this two meals. For dinner, I'll try to pamper myself with something special rather than having the same stuffs over and over again. If not, sooner or later I'll turn myself into a bunny, munching carrots everyday. Oh my god, I am starting to hallucinate due to all this constraint from eating all my favourite food. Hehe. Just kidding. :p Today, I had dished up stir-fry siew pak choy and chicken marinated with ginger marinade. Yum yum.. It might be a simple meal but for a person who is on diet (me), the dishes was really superb and a saviour to my hungry tummy. It was so fulfilling. What shall I prepared for tomorrow?? I am running out of idea for my dinner tomorrow. Headache, headache..

P/s: Do have a look at the last picture, guess that I am too hungry until I can finished up everything within minutes. Kakaka...
