First Dinner Gathering in 2009

There was a new opening of BBQ steamboat buffet restaurant in town. My colleagues had planned to go there long ago. Due to certain reason, we only could get it done yesterday. Everyone felt good, happy and satisfied with the food. Thank god that our mood wasn't affected much by the economy downtime, and also our bonus was actually divided into 2 pay outs. Here are some photos that we took yesterday.



Khoo and wife (as he is cousin of Yvonne, we call him 阿表&表嫂)

Angeline (we also call her fut dai)

Lorita (but in facebook her name is Cherry)


Yew (we call him 二少爷, as he is the second son in his family)


Who else? Ah Yan la!

I went for a hair trim after the dinner. After that, I took my own sweet time to do some window shopping alone, as hubb already promised to look after my 2 girls at home.
I saw a nice 3/4 length jeans there, but too bad, because of the bonus that we are going to get before CNY is only 50%, I didn't buy it Instead, I took a pair of my old jeans to my tailor and had my jeans cut short to 3/4 length. I managed to save cost, yeah!

My Top New Year Goal - Thin

It is always my top and forever goal to get thinner. However, no matter how hard I try, I'll never able to consider as thin people. Finally I found and saw these 10 secrets of effortlessly thin here. I must really keep these secrets in mind, in order to join the ranks of the thin in year 2009.

10 Secrets of the Effortlessly Thin
1. They don't skip meals
(The best way to do that is to eat frequent mini-meals every three to four hours )

2. They don't diet
(They eat more fruits and vegetables and more fiber, and drink more water - all healthy things that provide more food volume for the number of calories.)

3. They keep track of their weight

4. They exercise reqularly

5. They don't solve problems with food
(Eat only if the reason is hungry and not for emotional reasons)

6. They stop eating when they're full
(They often report that they don't like that feeling of being uncomfortably full, so they've learned how to stop before they reach it.)

7. They don't surround themselves with temptation
(Rather than stocking the cupboards with junk food, thin people's kitchens tend to be filled with healthly foods)

8. They allow themselves treats

9. They eat breakfast
(Breakfast is literally breaking the fast of the night, and starting the metabolism system)

10. They move, stand and fidget more
