Autumn in Malaysia?

It’s autumn in Malaysia! I was sitting on the swing with my son just now and saw fallen leaves from the “pokok mangga” covered the area entirely. It was somehow very soothing to my eyes and decided to take few pictures of it. It is also reminded me to the autumn season in 4 seasons country [definitely not malaysia] maple leaves and autumn in my heart [the korean movie].

My son as usual, tido masa duduk atas swing ok. Haha. The pictures are rather dark because sky was little bit cloudy this morning.

Yeah, am at my hometown again. I slept at 4 am last night as I was too preoccupied with my sewing project. Overjoyed a bit, sbb yayy! my skill on sewing is getting betterrrrr and yesterday I discovered few more tips and I’m now totally a happy mother who ehem…sew.

Muahssss!

p/s: hope you guys won’t feel so stress out today to start work. it’s a short working week this week  peeps so be happy!

Swing...swing.....high

Remember in my previous entry I wrote that Ichiro went out with grandpa to the park, so that I could have my own “me” time. About half an hour visiting the park, my dad brought home my son in his arm. Dad said that Ichiro had fallen asleep while playing the swing. Later dad showed me video of Ichiro. Poor boy, he was so tired until tertido masa main swing. Hihi. Here goes short video. Sorry the quality of the video was not that good because ayah guna henfon biasa-biasa jer. Not a smartphone.

Lose the cravings. Lose the pounds

I seldom write entry for my blog during daytime. Usually, I will burn the candle and stay up till late night to update my blog. My priority goes to my son and Usana during daytime.

But, today is different. Ichiro went out with grandpa to the park and I got some “me” time now. While replying customers email, I think maybe I can update my blog now and sleep early tonight.

Wow, suddenly I am running out of idea what to blog despite last week I was hell suffocated when thinking about entries that are pending to be wrote and publish. But now, I can’t seem to think of any topic to write. Next time, I should jot it down. Must!

Since dah tkder idea, I think I wanna write about my diet progress. I weighed 50.5kg as 2 days ago. And I can now fit into all my old clothes [except jeans sbb tk cuba lagi]. My dream weight is 45kg or 46kg. Apparently, still got few miles to go.

Ada lebihan about 2-3 inches [rasanya]


Ni nampak jelas sket [abaikan bilik yg bersepah]

The white lace kebaya that I worn during aqiqah was already too baggy for me. Since, I don’t like to alter my baju-baju, I think I will just keep the baju instead for my next pregnancy. Seriously, I tk suka alter baju especially size. Kalau setakat panjang seluar nk potong sikit ok la, tapi kalau nk kecik or besarkan baju…hmm no thanks. I would prefer to keep the baju for future use or kasik jer kat saper-saper yg muat.

Side view [i pegang baju dekat belakang]

Front view [i still pegang baju dekat belakang, kasi betul2 fit]

Btw, speaking of diet and Usana, maybe I can include some frequent questions yg org dok tanya I about diet with Usana;

1) Kene pantang makan tak kalau amik Usana?
Tidak perlu. As long as consume Usana 2 kali sehari [utk ganti hidangan biasa] dan makan nasi seperti biasa dalam kuantiti yg tidak menyerupai sebuah bukit atau gunung, you are good to go already :)

2) RESET tu apa? Mesti kene buat ker RESET ni?
RESET ni program diet Usana, 5 hari on shake tanpa nasi utk reset badan dan cara pemakanan. Lepas 5 hari, badan akan rasa lebih ringan dan lebih berdedikasi kepada hari-hari yg mendatang utk diet. Selain tu, bagus utk detox dalam masa 5 hari ini. Buat tk buat terpulang kepada diri sendiri. Macam I, I tk buat. Hehe. Malas. I mesti nk reward myself dgn food sehari sekali. Hence I neglected the RESET program.

3) Mana lagi bagus Usana ker? HL ker? Jus Diet Mate 5 ker? SDII ker?

If u ask me, for sure la I jawab Usana. Hahaha. Ok la, honestly I rasa HL and Usana equally good. Sbb I dh try both. Taste wise I prefer Usana and kesenangan nk order online pon I prefer Usana. Sbb I can just log into Usana website and order. Dari segi berapa cepat turun berat, I rasa sama. Tapi, sometimes cepat or lambat ni lebih bergantung kepada seseorang individu dan disiplin yg tinggi. Utk brand lain I tk sure, I just get some input from my current customers yg dh pernah cuba the other brand but prefer to buy Usana then. Tapi kalau secara logik, semua pon elok. It’s all about preference. Kalau nak good result, kene lah usaha utk displin. Kalau tak disiplin amik la bapak meal replacement pon, kalau makan kuat, gemuk tetap gemuk ok.

4) Kalau tk amik Essentials, amik Nutrimeal and Fibergy jer boleh ker kurus?
Boleh. Tapi honestly I think Essentials will help you to lose weight at maximum speed. Bukankah itu yg anda mahu? Kurus dengan cepat? Essentials is indeed good to maintain health and strengthen immune system. The truth is kalau nk lagiiii bagus, advisable to consume Proflavanol 90 sekali. I consume all. Including Biomega and Coquinone.

5) Kalau stop amik Usana, gemuk balik tak?
Mesti la gemuk balik KALAU tk control your food intake. You are free to stop anytime. But, be sure to pick your food wisely. Kalau u pandai control what goes into your body, with Usana or not, slim you will be forever [intonasi mcm green jedi, master yoda]. To cut it short, Usana tkkan gemuk kan badan u kalau u stop consume it. Yg akan gemukkan badan kiter , adalah diri kita sendiri [tapi kalau amik pil diet yg tk sihat, mmg ada chance jugak naik berat mendadak lepas stop, sbb cara kurus yg tidak natural]

6) Boleh ker turun 60kg dalam masa seminggu/sebulan?
Mengarut. Tk boleh. Kalau boleh pon, I tanak. Bayangkan anda adalah belon. Bila belon tu kuncup secara berdesup, belon itu akan kendur dan mengeleber, betulkan? Bayangkan…… Paling normal about 2-3kg la in a month.

7) Mrs Imran kenapa I consume Usana, I mcm pening2 and muntah?
“Most probably” because too many toxin berkarat dalam badan. Usana is cell nutrition, so it’s kinda normal utk beginner akan rasa cam funny sket. Tummy mungkin akan upset sket, kepala pening and muntah. Adalah 2-3 org my customer yg experience such reaction, tapi temporary sahaja. After 2-3 days back to normal.

8) Kalau breastfeeding boleh consume shake Usana?
Boleh mmg boleh, tapi utk tujuan diet and nk kuruskan badan I tk galakkan kalau u fully breastfeed your child. Sbb normally kalau diet or puasa, secara automatik susu badan juga akan kurang, so that’s why I tk galakkan. Tapi kalau u jenis yg puasa or diet mcm mana pon, susu tetap melimpah ruah, then why not kan amik Usana.

9) Boleh ker campur Nutrimeal and Fibergy? I baca dekat forum ada distributor tu kata tk boleh. Dia kata ada pakar pemakanan nasihatkan jgn campur.
Hmmm…I tk sure la pakar pemakanan mana yg nasihat tu, tapi I dh check dgn Usana punye nutritinonist dia kata mmg boleh [rujuk email di bawah] By the way, nobody told me to mix the Nutrimeal and Fibergy. I came out with the idea myself. Sbb dari pemikiran I, Nutrimeal and Fibergy adalah food component. Kenapa pula tk boleh campur eh?

Cuba bayangkan u makan nasi goreng paprik, letak kuah tomyam, letak papadom, tambah telur mata kerbau…tidak kah itu mix namanya? Nutrimeal dan Fibergy tu adalah makanan. As simple as that.

Thank you very much for your Email.
Indeed, Nutrimeal and Fibergy are “healthy food”.
Yes, it is perfectly okay to mix Nutrimeal with Fibergy if you wish.
It is true, you can feel more filling with more fiber in your meal.
Well done !! Mrs. Imran,

Have a wonderful USANA day!

10) Boleh campur soy milk or juice ?
Boleh. Utk lagi sedap boleh tambah bubble jelly :D Sila baca di SINI. Just that jgn campur byk-byk bahan sangat la to the Nutrimeal. Sbb takut you add on more calories to the shake.

11) Boleh tak minum shake Usana tapi saya makan mcm biasa jugak? I love food so much.
No. Definitely cannot. You will gain weight instead! I don’t believe on products yg kata boleh makan banyak mcm biasa but still boleh turun berat and tk gemuk. For me nk kurus ni mcm nk kaya. No easy way to jadi kaya and same goes to lose weight jugak. Kalau ada product yg boleh buat org suka makan banyak jadi kurus wpun tk kurangkan food intake, I rasa dunia ni dah tkder org gemuk dan istilah obesiti pupus dari kamus.

Sekian terima kasih

Aqiqah - Part 1

Alhamdulillah aqiqah kenduri went so well. Ichiro was kinda on adrenalin rush on that day, he didn’t really want to sleep, mcm excited nk main. He managed to take few minutes nap through out the day tho. The longest he slept about 2 hours before the Marhaban group perform.

While waiting for the “cukur jambul” session, Ichiro and the newborn berak ok, both at the same time. Arghhh Haha. So kiterorg pon sibuk berkungfu nk cuci our babies, with our white attire it made things more challenging for us. Karang tk pasal2 terpalit2. Dah la Ichiro siap nk makan paip sekarang ni. Glad that we managed to clean up Ichiro’s bottom without jeopardizing our attire.

Grandma to Ichiro loves red so much, that’s explain why both babies were in RED [not because of CNY] Me and Imran would love to thank Hani and Mama for the shirt that they bought for Ichiro [at first I thot it was a GUESS, huhu lawa! turned out it is PONEY] and lovely gown for Alisya. I like it so much until I think I wanna be a baby also so that I could wear that little red riding hood gown :) The gown is tailored made for Alisya because grandma said she can’t find any beautiful gown for newborn with the right material [girl gown usually using organza material]. Baby won’t feel comfortable wearing organza. Yeah, I do agree with that and Alisya gown is so flowing. Love it! Opps no picture for the babies with red outfit, none taken by my camera. Need to wait for the picture from photographer.

Cukur jambul session went pretty fast. Tkder ramai pon yg kasi Ichiro free hair cut since Ichiro is a big boy already, so he doesn’t like people man handle him. I was rather thankful too, sbb tkder la rambut my son botak tk sekata. Ehe. Alisya pon cranky, tk suka and rimas kot.

Straight after that, jamuan makan2 bermula. Our son dah start berpeluh-peluh pakai corduroy and shirt. Hehe. Wpun berat hati nk tukar baju dia yg hensem tu, we hafto jugak sbb kesian tgk dia rasa tk bebas sbb terlalu kacak. Lepas tukar ligat balik la main.

I was also super excited to see my bloggers friends. Wanna thank you guys sbb sudi datang. Khai yg mula-mula sampai with his partner followed by the rest of  other bloggers Lina, Farah, Isma, Munirah, Ary and Am. Poor Puteri she didn’t manage to locate our house, perhaps next time I need to ask Imran to draw a better map.

Am and Farah. Am’s husband taking the photo, Farah’s husband eating satay at the back. Farah’s daughter nadrah and aqilah both in the picture too. Tanpa sedar ada 2 complete family dalam ini gambar :D

Am and Isma


Imran and Amir. Kawan dah lama since both of them were still schooling in Bukit Bintang Boys School. Amir got a twin brother. The world is indeed small, happen to be Amir’s twin brother Amin was actually my Science Muar schoolmate and ehem he is my old crush. Huhuh. But, I think he never noticed me anyway. Huhu.I dulu mcm invisible.


Lina [purple ] , Ary & Nas [middle] and Farah + baby [tangan farah cam laju giler suap mulut..hihi] Ary baru jer gave birth to Rafael. Does she looks like she just giving birth? Baru 2 bulan. Damnn. Tk aci. She and her husband is actually my direct upline in Usana.


Group picture with all the bloggers, lawa tak kasut I? Hehe. Cuba cari mana Ichiro? Baju I pakai tu dah terlalu longgar for me, am still appear chubby wearing it. Maybe because of the size, will show later how big the baju for me. Baju tu sebenarnya kebaya, but now dh jadi kebarung. Huhu.


Ichiro yg curious. Suruh kiss, gi tarik telinga pulak. Nasib baik Syirah cool jer.


Isma and partner :) Isma next time u boleh bawak ur dad sekali ok :) Isma ni downline Usana I. Masa nk beli Usana, email i tk berhenti2 sampai nk pecah inbox haku. Ada 50 email kot ? [hahah exaggerate sudah tentu] Sebaik beli ok, kalau tak confirm I hangennn. Haha. But not bad, dia pon antara distributor yg sangat rajin jugak :D Tahukah anda adik Isma adalah pemain badminton Malaysia? Hehe sbb tu beli Usana dulu, utk adik dia.


Khai and Tini. Yer khai adalah lelaki and he reads my blog. But I think my blog ni unisex la. We know each other via blog for several years dah. Dah 5 years ke eh Khai? Neway, I like Tini, mcm dh 10 tahun kenal. She’s very very friendly and bubbly. Ok Khai, meh bawak masuk Usana. Bagus org2 peramah mcm Tini ni, apa pon boleh jual :D Me and Khai actually has one thing in common :) We love politic so much, I still remember masa PRU, Khai dok sms kt I lapor bilangan undi. Haha. Ada rupa YB tak Khai ni?


This is Lina. Lina ni mcm kejap ada kejap takder. But normally bila I invite keluar dinner or meet up, dia selalu ada. Itu la bagusnya Lina ni :) Get to know her via blog also. Pon dah about 5 years. Sejak I baru kahwin. Sejak dia duduk Dublin, Ireland, kahwin and dah balik mesia balik. Hehe, how’s time flies eh. Hobby dia dari tulis advert dekat blog, sampai la buat scrap book, beli kamera lomo dekat Ebay and sekarang dh expert amik gambar wedding guna lomo. Haa dashat tk dashat?

Ini Am. First time jumpa dia and baru jer kenal kt blog masa I buat entry invitation aqiqah tu. Hehe. Tapi cool! Dia dpt datang and I adalah jakun ok. Hihih. Tapi tk dpt borak banyak2 sbb, she was among yg sampai and balik awal :D Hehe. Kesian hubby dia dh penat, but Am, next time I jemput datang lagi yer :) Syirah budak paling cool I pernah jumpa.

Ini Munirah dgn Uzair. Malas cerita pasal Munirah, sbb cam semua org kenal dia. Huhu.

It always facinate me to see kid yg pandai makan. Hope Ichiro nnt pon senang nk makan. Uzair makan mee kari and mushroom soup. Tiba2 lapar tgk gambar uzair ni. Dush!

Ni western corner ada chicken chop

The food was not that good. It wasn’t our first time with the caterer neway, it has been many many many times. Tapi utk kali ni dgn mee kari yg so-so and kambing roasted yg liat, hmm I think she [the caterer] could do better. But, I love the ais kacang and western corner tho. Normally lauk kambing, she will cook rendang kambing berkuah or entah apa la nama dia, mmg sedap sampai u akan sedut sum-sum tulang kambing tu. Mmg leleh la. Tapi since kali ni Hani mcm nk rasa kambing pangang, so she ordered that la. Last-last menyesal. Hahah. But, it wasn’t that bad, it just that liat. Saper yg gigi kuat sure menikmati dgn aman.

Pantang lalu dekat Ais Kacang corner ni, sure mintak satu, 5 kali lalu, 5 kali order

But, it was fun. Kiteorg melepak makan sampai kol 9 malam. Rasa macam melepak dekat mamak or warung-warung. And caterer tu pon willing to wait until we betul-betul dah surrender makan. Hehe. I asik dok order ais kacang tk berhenti-henti. Ahhh gumuksssss! I think I ate 5 bowl altogether. Goshhh.

More piccies of the kenduri soon!

Update: despite kambing and 5 mangkuk ais kacang, I weigh 50.5kg today. Yup getting closer to my target! I’m only shy about 4.5kg to my dream weight.
