We are family

In the spirit of school holiday we went to JB to visit my brother. I invited my dad to join us and he agreed. Total people in our party was fifteen, quite a large number to manage. The travel is not complete without going to Singapore for lunch and a little sight seeing.

Arab street in front of a mosque before Friday prayer.

Next we went to Merlion Park which was a challenge to get to. Luckily I am subscribed to MaxisOne which allow me to enjoy the same package abroad with on RM38 a day. That means I got to use waze as our personal tourist guide.

Finally I got to take photo in front of the Singapore Lion statue.

Vision board about FOCUS

For One Little word assign in March is to make a vision board. It took me a while to make them because I just didn't have time to sit in front of my computer and make one with Adobe Photoshop like I did in 2014.

[My 2014 Vision Board:WRITE]

day 068

Then yesterday it hit me, I can scrapbook right on my phone, so why not make a vision board right on my phone too. I have the perfect app for that, I used Pic Collage app. I set the saiz horizontal and add all the photos that I want. Arrange them nicely and in less than ten minutes I have a vision board.

I can print them out if I like.
At the moment this became my lock screen background on all of my devices.
Perfect solution.

Celebrate the little things

Part of cultivating a good life is celebrate the little things. One of the things that I am focusing on this year is to cultivate a good life and record it. For me this year is all about focus and the journey will not be complete without my quest for a normal and balance body.

I've read and researched about nutrition and fitness aspect about loosing weight for awhile now. A few days ago I stumbled upon a youtube channel talking about losing weight and one of the thing that he talked  about was the psychological aspect of the journey. He said one of the things that we need to do to loose weight fast is to celebrate small success/wins.

It really makes me think about what I have been doing so far. I have a target goal I want to achieve by the end of the month but when I didn't reach that goal I feel disappointed and discourage. What I really need to do is to adjust my focus and look at the positive side of things. Break down everything into small achievable goals and celebrate that wins daily.

I really like what the instructor of 21 day Fix said that the key to loosing 20 pounds or 30 pounds begin with one workout a day and one pound at time. When she put it that way it seems more manageable. I can do one workout a day, I can do plank for one minute a day, I can drink 3L of water a day and I can do push up for one minute a day. Just by writing this blog post already help me feel more motivated and inspired to do more. Celebrate the small success is part of cultivate a good life.

I need to keep a journal which focus on why I do things and how I am feeling. Try as hard as possible not to write about negative things in my happy journal. I think for now I am going to enjoy my 21 day fix workout and be more alert on what food I consume daily. It's all about creating a good relationship between your food and your body. Hopefully in a month I can really see and fee the results that I need. 

I probably should write about this in my one little world journal and I put it in my vision board.

This is everyday life // PL App

March is almost over and now school holiday is in full force. I really enjoy my commute to work during the school holiday just because the traffic flow is amazing. I am not happy that this year I have not make an effort to take more photos. I have literally taking it for granted. From now on I am going to make it my personal mission to take more photos this month and make different kind of project life layouts.

Note: Good news to Android users, the Project Life App is finally available on Google Play. Now everybody can enjoy this amazing app and make beautiful layouts.

Old books I am planning to reread this year

Ever since I've finished reading Getting Things Done and Better than Before books this year, I have the sudden urged to read more motivational and fitness books. I realised that I have a lot of those books in my collection which are currently collecting dust on my bookshelf. I have not touched those books in a really really  long time. Those were great books back then.

I have pickup five books from my shelf that I wanted to reread this year.

Here are five books on my lists

1. Time Management from Inside Out by Julie Morgenstern

I am currently rereading this book and I left the book at the office today. It's one my favourite time management book. I know that she has a system in place something like Kindergarten style which back then I think works great. Can't wait to rediscover the system.

2. Organising from the Inside Out by Julie Morgenstern

I read this book first before Time Management from Inside Out and I fell in love with Julie Morgenstern approached which I think makes more sense to me in terms of organising. Can't wait to reread this book again.

3. Kathy Smith's Getting Better All the time

My all time favourite fitness instructor in the early 90's. Love her enthusiasm and her philosophy on fitness and over all healthy lifestyle. I owned almost all her books and her workout VHS / DVD. She was the reason I was obsessed with fitness in the first place.

4. Get With the Program by Bob Green

He was Oprah's fitness instructor back in early 2000. I do remember reading the book, make notes and probably try a few suggestion but I don't remember if I stuck to it. I think I last read this book back in 2002 when I was super busy with two small children. Amazing how I have the time to read books when there was no smartphone.

5. Body for Life by Bill Phillips

I literally can't remember why I bought this book and if I've finished reading the book. Maybe in the early 2000 I was going through a phase where I have to buy every fitness book out there. Maybe I've seen Bill Philips on TV somewhere or maybe he was a fitness coach for celebrity and was inspired by his teaching method. Can't wait to reread and discover the reason why I picked up this book in the first place.

There you have it, five books I have choose to reread this year. I hope I can get to all of them this year. I know that some of the method and the philosophy in these book are still relevant. I wish all of this books made into ebook, I would have love to add them to my digital library.

Lazy Sunday

I decided to enjoy my lazy Sunday by watching DC Legends' of Tomorrow on hulu while my son playing in the room.

The first thing that he grab when he wakes up in the morning is his ipad.

Then when he got tired of playing with his ipad, he grabbed his magic color and start coloring.

Such a beautiful thing to watch.

I can't believe that he is a big boy now. He can control a pen and can color inside lines.
