Get active!

Hope you guys have a good long weekend and well, it's back to work on Tuesday. I am on leave today in order to rest from all the travelling over the weekend but will go back to Singapore tonight. I miss exercise and sweating it out, thus, I am planning to go to the gym later for a short workout and a run.

Well, last Wednesday after a badminton session, I was having dinner with my colleague and we talked about folks who work too hard and never exercise. The stress build up over the years with late nights and munching on unhealthy food were deem too bad for the body. My colleague was also very active in physical exercise and we thought folks who suddenly struck with a disease due to stress and inactiveness, are really not worth it. The company can always replaced the person but the family cannot replace the family member. We make it a point to always make time for exercise though of course, it does not guaranteed we will be disease-free but at least, it's better than no exercise. After all, a doctor once told me physical exercise can help prevent certain old-age diseases. Anyway, this is just our opinion.

Had a company gathering in Swensen and I decided to go for their Sirloin Steak and an ice-cream. 
The steak was delicious, done to my requirements which was medium-well, not so raw and not too cooked. It was just nice and dipping into the black pepper sauce was really good!! I am yearning for another steak now...hahaha... afterall, the piece of meat was not so fat, mostly lean meat.
My Medium-Well Sirloin Steak

Dark Chocolate 'sticky' ice-cream 
The ice-cream was nice too but it's a little bit sweet and after finishing it, I really felt the 'fullness' in my stomach. I guess I should order simple ice-cream next time like three scoops or banana splits. Have a good week and workout, folks!

    1. "...folks who work too hard and never exercise..." Me lah!!! I guess exercise is good but must know how to relax and enjoy too. Spending quality time with the family is a good way of doing that. I listen to soothing music as well.

  11. yes you are right, there are just too many things in our lives that are important besides our job.. that just give you a living but not a life.. it's important, though may not be easy, for us to have a balance between work and life.. :)
