Stir-fried Mung Bean Noodles

So last night, mom and dad went out for dinner with two friends and as much as I wanted to go, I had a lot of work to do, so instead stayed home! I made a quick stir-fried mung bean noodles. You know the cellophane noodles I talked about once, sometime ago. They just need a little prior soaking in warm water and you're good to go. This time, I flash steamed all my veggies to keep them crisp and crunchy and then sauteed some of the other veggies as a base.

On another note, check out the kitchen counter (or tea counter) in our kitchen, there's enough types of herbal teas to make a Teavana. There's Cardamom green tea (I lurveee this now!), Lavender green tea (thank you Julie!), Jasmine green tea, Green tea with mint, Green tea with lemon, Morocco tea, etc. I have one particular Strawberry Chocolate tea (Its black tea infused with strawberry dipped chocolate flavor). I am not a big fan just because its weird...I mean you want strawberry dipped chocolate instead, right when you get a whiff of it.

In other news, not much has been happening. Work, food, sleep, tv...etc. I have become this crazy sleep lover. I just want to doze off all the time. I dont know it is because I started drinking a bottle of water mixed with one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in it, which I learnt about here. It's supposed to be a body cleanser/detoxifier/metabolism rever-upper/ph balancing wonder food. So far...nothing much has happened other than me feeling reallyyyy sleep right after drinking a lot of it.

Hello Hello

When life throws papers and research work at you, you make papereserachade?

Okay, not funny. I am losing 'funny' for some reason. Anyways, work has been good. I have been getting sunburnt though going to and coming back from work. Its so hot here, I can't say it enough. All the world's aloe juice, rose water and milk and yada can't beat the burn. I am currently using Neutrogena's dry touch sunblock in 55. If I put a full squirt on, I look purple. Like a duochrome purple lol. So I apply it sparingly to my face and then slather it on my hands and neck. I don't care for getting tan but of course I don't want to get any wrinkles! I see so many people at work not caring enough to apply sunscreen lotion! They say whats the point, would you believe it? what else has been happening? I have to start my 'toning' event soon. I have completely stopped doing all kinds of weight exercises, possibly thats why I gained some weight that I had lost 3 months ago! I am stripped off all energy once I come home. The sun tires you out if not anything else! I am thinking of buying a cross-trainer. Our home treadmill has reached its limit, its been 11 years now since we've had it! I need to get on this soon!!! If anyone has some really effective exercises they know (especially for lower body) do share! Ummm the pic is of me in the car with my mom, we just came back from a lunch at an aunt's place. It was nice :) I have a MAC haul post coming up soon, watch this space xoxoxoxox

I bought a baby TV

So...I have been totally totally MIA. Oh I watched the entire memorial service for Michael Jackson. It was really well put together and most of the people who spoke said some touching things. My favorite performance of the night was 'Smile' by Jermain Jackson. That song and 'childhood' are like two of my favorite slow songs of MJ. Ah, what a loss. Anyways, I bought a TV last week. We already have two TVs in the house and I know its crazy that there is a 3rd one now but everyone is watching different channels all the time! So.Its a Sanyo 21 inches, 'Amazing Slim' TV. Its good for my room since my room is kinda small and I didn't want a huge obnoxious thing overlooking me as I sleep. Yes I have 'big-tv-in-room-so-can't-sleep' phobia. Go figure. Anyways, its a cute tv and doesnt occupy much space at all. I saw a movie on this channel two days ago, called Lonesome Jim, it was nice. yeah, I have to work now :-/ Ttyl peeps.
