Going for Healthier Lifestyle

It is definitely not easy to change a habit. It took a while for one to opt for a healthier lifestyle and change the old ways.

THE RIGHT FOOD

I think it took a lot for one to be able to say No for the fast food like McD, KFC, or the Malaysian mamak, and cook at home. 

Cooking at home is really just part of it. Choosing what to eat is as important. 

YenLeng learned and taught me how to make the Chicken Caesar Salad.

My very own chicken salad

Of course, one thing I learned about changing habits is that it has to be progressive and I'm keeping up the good taste of the salad with the thousand island sauce. 

FRUITS ARE GREAT

I also add fruits after my dinner meal most of the time.

There's orange, apple and tomato in here

EXERCISE

Getting the right diet is a great start....I have also been working out and hitting the gym quite often. I think it's good to get the stamina back, do the stretching, get the dumbbells....it's all just coming back. Been doing it for a while now. 




SLEEP

I think this is going to be the most difficult of them all but I think it's important. Having quality sleep is important to build muscles and energy for the day. It's something that I'm still trying to get more....anyway so far the year has been pretty good. I'm going for a healthier lifestyle....slowly but surely....

Did Furious 7' ending make you cry?

Honestly, it felt weird to be watching Furious 7, seeing Brian O'Conner in action...there is a bit of sadness in it, because somehow I know that this will be the last movie where Paul Walker will really star in. 


Casts of Furious 7...here's where it all started...


I'm not sure bout the others...but for all the stunts that we see Brian O'Conner perform, somehow there is a wish that the man behind all these action scenes would be able to make it too....but reality hits as the ending of Furious 7 pays a tribute, worthy of Paul for his involvement in the Fast & Furious franchise. 

There were many critics who were also moved to tears by the film's ending and I agreed....I honestly think that the movie was not as good as the earlier episodes but if I were to go for the movie just for the ending, I would.

There's a lot of emotion involve and the director was very clever with the ending...it was very respectful towards Paul Walker and it shows why we miss this man so much, because he was a real charmer and entertainer throughout this entire franchise. 

Here are some of the tweets that you will see on those who have watched Furious 7.





Here is one of the video that I found on Youtube that plays the song of the ending on Furious 7.... #RIPPaulWalker. 




It's been a long day without you my friend
And I'll tell you all about it when I see you again
We've come a long way from where we began
Oh I'll tell you all about it when I see you again
When I see you again

Damn who knew all the planes we flew
Good things we've been through
That I'll be standing right here
Talking to you about another path I
Know we loved to hit the road and laugh
But something told me that it wouldn't last
Had to switch up look at things different see the bigger picture
Those were the days hard work forever pays now I see you in a better place

How could we not talk about family when family's all that we got?
Everything I went through you were standing there by my side
And now you gonna be with me for the last ride

It's been a long day without you my friend
And I'll tell you all about it when I see you again
We've come a long way from where we began
Oh I'll tell you all about it when I see you again
when I see you again

First you both go out your way
And the vibe is feeling strong and what's
Small turn to a friendship a friendship
Turn into a bond and that bond will never
Be broke and the love will never get lost
And when brotherhood come first then the line 
Will never be crossed established it on our own
When that line had to be drawn and that line is what
We reach so remember me when I'm gone

How could we not talk about family when family's all that we got?
Everything I went through you were standing there by my side
And now you gonna be with me for the last ride

So let the light guide your way hold every memory
As you go and every road you take will always lead you home

It's been a long day without you my friend
And I'll tell you all about it when I see you again
We've come a long way from where we began
Oh I'll tell you all about it when I see you again
When I see you again

Benefits of Earl Grey Tea

I have always had that special thing for beverage since I was young....

Cola and all the soft drinks, then coffee, then alcohol and wine, and now, tea.

Check out my latest collection:

My collection of coffee and tea

Anyway, I've been drinking the Earl Grey Tea that I bought. It's the Gryphon Earl Grey Lavender tea and it taste great and help me to relax and chill.

Earl Grey Lavender tea
If you are not a tea lover, perhaps it's time to try some.

This one will be a great one to try. 

Here are some of the benefits of drinking earl grey tea:

1) Increase immune function

I don't really believe this until I read an article on the benefits of drinking tea. Earl Grey tea can be effective in boosting immune system function because of the high content of bergamot. Bergamot is a small citrus fruit that contains substantial amounts of antioxidants, which target and destroy the free radicals that cause harmful effects to the body. These antioxidants can reduce fevers, fight infection and aid in the treatment and management of other acute and chronic health conditions, such as cardiovascular disease.

2) Makes you feel good

The feel good factor is an important part of our lives and earl grey tea helps you to feel good as bergamot is effective in reducing stress, easing anxiety and alleviating mild to moderate cases of depression. If you're feeling stress and tense up because of work and exam, taking a cup of hot earl grey tea could be helpful. For those of you who have mood swings, the earl grey tea can serve as a mood stabilizer.

3) Improved DIGESTION

A lot of people know bout this, that different teas help to improve digestion but most people don't realize that one of the most effective ones, is indeed the earl grey tea. Earl Grey tea can alleviate constipation and nausea and may reduce symptoms of acid reflux disease. Its mild flavor and natural origins mean that caretakers can give it to babies who suffer from colic and other digestive disorders.

4) Clean your teeth

Most of the drinks that I love are bad for my teeth but earl grey tea is definitely not one of them. In fact, it provides a natural source of fluoride, which prevents tooth decay and can reduce the risk of painful cavities. Earl Grey tea also contains high amounts of catechin -- a natural antibiotic that can fight oral infections and ward off the early stages of gingivitis.
