Random notes#1/2015

1. It was a busy weekend as I have several tasks to settle over the two days. I worked from home on Friday and though it's from home, a little distractions here and there ended up I am still working on a Friday night. hahaha...  Well, I got some time to run groceries and have a long lunch as well as met up with a friend but the consequences are I needed to 'pay' back those hours when I am free at night. :)

2. Anyway, my insurance agent sent me a letter via Poslaju without informing my wife and I and we gotta travelled all the way to Pasir Gudang to retrieve the letter. I was thinking ...not again ... and I can only go there on Sunday since they are not working on Friday and Saturday, the so called 'new weekend'. Somehow, I thought the Poslaju folks, being a courier service,  should at least called the recipients to check if they are at home or not or come back later rather just dump a note to collect at their warehouse. And, I was not surprise to see a long queue of folks waiting to collect their stuffs on a Sunday, the 'first' working day.

3. On the other hand, my son was slightly down with a throat infections and seeing that it was just the start of school, we decided to let him take a MC on Sunday.   His condition is not serious and the doc didn't even subscribed him any antibiotics but we let him 'ponteng' a bit la.... for family time. hahha ..and a longer weekend for the family.

4. I did a medical check-up last weekend and went to retrieve my report today. When the medical personnel saw me, he told me I passed with flying colours with 100% marks on my medical report. hhahha.. Well, all the readings are below the borderline which include my cholesterol level, and that's a good thing, even though I remember I had two half-boiled eggs the morning before. However, my wifey's cholesterol readings seems on the borderline and I got her some red yeast supplement to control it, which is recommended by the pharmacist.  Anyway, cholesterol level is something that fluctuate up and down depending on the food intake. 

5. Meanwhile, I always look forward to a nice and simple dinner before I returned back to work in Singapore. Have had a nice dinner in Pekin Retaurant, Taman Sentosa.


Vegetables platter with lotus root

Beansprouts

Fried tofu with vegetables and mushrooms
Fried fish

Herbal Chicken

Ostrich meat
 Have a good week, folks!

  4. If cholesterol level is on the borderline, have your fish steamed...not fried. Ostrich is good, they say, no cholesterol. Beansprouts, tofu...all high-class protein, uric acid, gout!
