Hit The Gym


After a year of hitting the gym, I would like to have a say or two, perhaps more.

*Profanity alert* Chances of being offended is high.*VERY HIGH*

Attire

  • Wear suitable clothes which are COMFORTABLE and APPROPRIATE. It does not have to be branded. All it has to be is breathable and comfortable for workouts, especially mobility. Some people tend to wear clothes that covers head to toe with the perception of it aids them to perspire more, hence burning more calories. Wherever the hell they got that myth, its utter bullshit. The amount of sweat does not indicate the amount of calorie burn.
Washroom 
  • Some gyms have separate cubicles for gents and ladies. Some doesn’t. So, if you are sharing the cubicles, please be considerate to others. 
  • Gents, please CLOSE the fucking door. It is there for a reason. And oh, it is totally unnecessary to spray your pee everywhere. Or if you accidentally did, at least fucking clean after that. 
  •  Ladies, throw the toilet paper/sanitary pads in the bins provided. That’s practically common sense. 
  • And to both genders, if you missed the bin while throwing your rubbish, JUST PICK IT UP and THROW INTO THE BIN!!!! Do not just leave it lying on the damned floor. I can’t brain on why some of you people are being fucking retarded and uncivilized.  
Attending Classes
  • If you walk into a class late, SHUT THE FUCK UP and proceed with joining the class. Unnecessary to create havoc with your dumb friends and distract the already ongoing class. 
  •  If you are early for your scheduled class but there is an ongoing class, the least you could do if not join in the class is to SHUT THE FUCK UP. Unnecessary to be a nuisance. It’s called being respectful to others. Stop being a fucking uncivilized barbarian.
  • Be on time for your fitness classes. Otherwise, refer to the two points above.
  • Respect the fitness instructors. Listen to what they have to say and teach instead of being a hooligan in the class. 
Dumbells/barbells and gym equipments 
  • If you are done using the dumbells/plates, rerack after use. By rerack, it means, RETURN & ARRANGE them in place accordingly. Don’t prove yourself an asshole by leaving them on the floor or even placing them as you like. Be considerate. Be civilized.
  • DO NOT SLAM the plates/dumbells/barbells after use. It will wreck the weights and will definitely wreck the gym floor in time.
  •  If you are done with the treadmill/ellipticals/whatever the hell the rest of the equipments are called, fucking wipe your sweat off. Most gyms provide cloth/towel and sanitizers to clean up after use. Use them. If it is not provided, bring your own towel and wipe your goddamned sweat. It’s called simple hygiene practice. 
  • If you are at the gym just to hog the equipments with your selfies and videos, just stay home. Don’t be a fucking waste of space. 
Sound effects
  • I totally respect the amount of effort and shit you put into your workout. That doesn’t mean you can moan and groan as you like, for the whole world to hear. Those moans and groans are pretty disturbing and distracting, especially if you sound like a fucking wild boar.
Newbies
  •  If you are new to the gym just proceed with what’s right and go on with your workouts.
  • If you are clueless about using any of the equipment, ask the staffs. They should at least have a basic idea of how all the equipment works.
  • Don’t get intimidated at the gym. If at all you caught anyone staring at you, smile or say Hi like a normal human being. 
The wannabes 
  • There could be many wannabe instructors at the gym. They are there just to lure the newbies into their fitness scheme. Choose wisely. The gym usually hires certified instructors. All you have to do is ask the reception.
Some people are fucking serious with their fitness journey and can’t afford to waste their precious time. Be considerate. Don't be a selfish prick.

Dcupcakes Is In Penang!!




Her Favourite Colour

Being the Si Tanggang that I am, I realized my mom's birthday was just 2 days away. Fucking 2 days!! I placed an order with Dina from DCupcakes and was suggested a bouquet. NO EXCUSES of last minute notice and all that crap. She did a hell of a job with my order. My mum was overjoyed to receive the cake and the bouquet. Especially the bouquet. Job well done. 

I'm putting up this post because this order is very special. Things have not been going well recently. I'm just another Si Tanggang. No surprise there. So, yeah. Seeing mum so excited and smiling ear to ear, being all happy warms my heart. The least I could do on her big day. Credit goes to Dina from Dcupcakes, for always doing the best!

Dina, a home maker, has a passion for baking. And she doesn't only bake cakes but customise cupcakes, brownies and cookies(on occasion). She started from the significant Red Velvet and now offers variety of flavours from chocolate, carrot walnuts, strawberry rainbow, vanilla chocolate chips and many more. The best part of all, Dina also caters special request of bouquet and have them delivered to your doorstep on a minimal charge. 

People in Penang, embrace this news: DCupcakes is now based in Minden Heights, Penang. Whatsapp her for details/enquiry. Customise cakes/cupcakes/ brownies. Discuss your ideas with her and she will give the best designs. I've come up with so many ridiculous ideas for cupcakes and she pulled through it all in perfection. The cakes/cupcakes/brownies are to die for. No joke. Delicious and satisfying. I'll let the pictures speak of her amazing work.

I Laughed


~Let Go & Let Live~

You know Facebook has got this Shit Memories To Look Back thingy based on the statuses and photos that you have posted? Right.

So, few weeks back, my status was 'Hari Ini Dalam Sejarah' (Today In History), refering to a major heartbreaking event in the year 2003. When this memory popped up, I smirked and burst out laughing, only to realise that exactly 14 years ago, I updated this status being full swing emotional : heartbroken, depressed and fucking angry with myself. Something so emotional once upon a time had now become what I would consider a laughable matter....

I laughed...
At the emotional turmoils I had faced
For the the nights I have cried myself to sleep, 
Putting every possible blame solely on myself...

I laughed...
At my ability to love another whole heartedly 
But self-loathe to the very core of my cells 
Armoring anger as self defense...

I laughed...
For I once believed in always and forever
But now - it's just 'Let's See How It Goes'
I've learned the hard way
Carrying all that grudge for more than a decade
But all it took was a genuine smile and a hug
To let go and let live...

Life and things we deal with are actually very simple. What complicates it is our emotions, how we react and deal with it. I wouldn't claim that I am great in dealing with my emotions but at least I don't self-loathe anymore. Letting go of that grudge has made me live just a little better.

Let's learn to love ourselves just a little bit more. ♡♡♡

~Journey Of A Thousand Miles~

If You Got It, Just Flaunt It 

Yoga Class

HIIT Gang 

When Rose Indah first suggested to attend Zumba at Angelus Fitness (prior to recommendation from a mutual friend), I didn't think much of it. We both decided to just give it a try. Little did I know, it was a life changing decision.

My very first class was fun. The aura of the class was enough to make you feel the bliss of working out. Of course, being a stiff person, it was abit awkward but man, did I sweat to glory! I enrolled as member, which allows me to use the gym facilities and attend all of the fitness classes.

And today marks the 1st year anniversary. Lame as it sounds, it has been a very personal journey to me. Struggling with my physique for years, I came to a point where I told myself that I will never ever be satisfied even if I was a size zero. Now, I would proudly say, THIS IS WHAT I LIVE FOR. I have learnt that it is never about being slim or thin. It is about being FIT. You can be slim and petite but if your fitness level is zero, that's just shit.

This post is to thank the family of Zumba, HIIT & Yoga of Angelus Fitness for being the guide for my ever improving fitness. You guys are my inspiration. My days are better with you guys. Always. Thank you, for with you guys, I have found my passion, strength and family. ♡♡♡

Because Of You

High In Defense

Because of You 
A seasoned phrase
To place blame
To immortalize the memories
With barricades high in defense
So high it's impenetrable
Claimed destructive

Decades and distances on
Amidst my crazy world 
The phrase brings 
A whole new perspective 
Because of You
I breathe, I live 
Just a little better 
And that made all the differences.. 

~For the things you do and the way you do it, thank you. Wishing you abundance of happiness. ♡♡♡~

Me Being Me

It's the end of the year. It is that time of the year where I usually go 'I don't know what the hell I've been doing all year long.' But this year is different. The whole year through has been about ME. Just exactly how it should be.

1) The Fitter Me - Enrolled into Angelus Fitness Gym. I've been attending the fitness classes : zumba, HIIT, Yoga and also using the gym facilities prior to the classes. My fitness and physique has improved tremendously. Though there's still a long way to get into shape, I'll get there. I fucking will.

That's What Squats Do To You
Saw What I Did There? ;)



2) Top Female Finisher Me -  Finished first in a 5km run. Nothing great but from not being able to run much to finishing first, I'd say 'Hell Yeah, I fucking did it'

I Ran & I Conquered

3) The Climber Me - I can finally be at peace for completing the Mount Kinabalu climb. The climb is nothing compared to Mulu Pinnacles but it was a great experience. Highly recommended.



4) Explorer Me - I went on a roadtrip to visit the main towns of Sarawak: Sibu, Sarikei, Bintulu, Miri. Explored Gua Niah, Tusan Cliff Beach and much more. A wonderful and eye opening trip.

That Horse though...

5) Cliff Jump - Did cliff jumping (twice) in Krabi. I should have jumped from a higher part of the cliff though. I was too tired to climb. But jumping off Pla Luang (the ship), also twice, felt great. Trip to Krabi was the most anticipated. After a thorough planning and dealing with crap, Shyam and I finally managed to get to Krabi and chill. Yeap, chill was what we did most.

The Most Anticipated Vacation : My Favourite Shot

6) The Girl In Me - Decided to wear a dress for annual dinner. Yeap, a fucking dress. After 16 long years. Just for the fuck of it, I took the trouble to get a dress and obviously a black one that is. And now, it's just lying there in the wardrobe.

All Set For Funeral Dinner

7) The Nape Undercut aka hair tattoo - Had my hair tattoo done just for the fuck of it and also as a little self reminder. My dad is against tattooing, so, yeah, my hair is the closest I could get to do it.

Precious

The simplest way I lived my life in the year of 2016 and would do so for many more years to come: Being ME. For all the dramas and crap, I held on to my beliefs, being Me. I believe I know myself better than anyone else. I do what I know is right. I'm schematic in many ways but that's what makes me, ME.

Being Alive


I Live For This

You 
Walked in when I least needed
A significant presence 
Made the beats dance to the rhythm
Sadistic and masochistic 

I
Flinch through my painful sleepless nights
Even when you left me sore
I smile at the thought of you 
I light up at the mention of your name 
I love the pain I am inflicted with...
Torture and torment

They 
Don't see you the way I do
Don't even like the mention of you 
Don't get the hype of you in me
All they see is 
Addiction and obsession...

I finally managed to execute my thoughts of you. I said finally because many times I have failed miserably. It feels good to think of you all the time. You make me feel alive.
