Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal

Since being on the 25 Weeks to A New You challenge, I have changed the way I eat.

Previously, I have tried so many diets - no carbs, the fruits only fast, juice fast. All worked but none are sustainable. You know it didnt last since I'm still trying to loose weight now. -___-

This time around, I want to do it right. I want to make it my lifestyle. Therefore, I have learned to eat clean most of the time but also allowing me to eat "sinfully" whenever I feel like it. The key is moderation.

So far, I have been able to eat good. I prepare my meals now; breakfast and lunch are packed from home and I try to eat out less. Ironically, I suddenly do not crave for desserts, sweets and salty food much these days. I guess my sore muscles are a great reminder of the hard work that I had to put in just to burn 300 calories!

To make this a lifestyle, I want to make it simple and easy for myself. I want the quickest and simplest meal to make but also packed in taste and nutrients.

One example of this is the Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal for breakfast.

4 ingredients make the yummiest meal! 
So, all you need is 4 ingredients. 

And here's what you need to do; 

Mash the banana in a separate bowl, add 1/2 to 3/4 cup of fresh milk and stir in 1/2 tablespoon peanut butter. 

In your container/tupperware, add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of oats. Combine the peanut butter banana mixture and stir well. 

Chuck in the fridge, to be served for breakfast the next day! Easy peasy yummy. 

This meal is about 200 calories, with 4g fats. 

This lasts me a while, but I snack on almonds and wheat grains biscuits in between breakfast and lunch. 

You may notice that I do not use skimmed milk. You can go ahead and change up the ingredients to skimmed, semi skimmed, rolled oats, organic oats, almond butter and what nots. I personally prefer the taste of the fresh milk and peanut butter. :p 

Just remember, moderation and sustainability are what we're aiming for here.

Fashion Styles: Blouse

If you have been following me on this blog, you’d probably know that I’m such a girly girl. I just love being a girl. Seriously, what’s not to love? We have the best in fashion. Fashion is dedicated to us, women! From hair bands and clips to shoes and stockings, and everything in between.
I had many fashion phases growing up. The “Clueless” inspired fashion; checkered pants, preppy blouses and small furry backpacks, short dresses with platforms ala Baby Spice and so much more. But, as I grow older, I stuck to a classic and simple style. My husband loves it when I’m dressed in a simple skinny jeans/pants and blouse. And that has been my staple since I got married. I admit – I would love to be more adventurous in my styles (like in my younger days) but I don’t think my husband can tolerate that. Lol.
Over the years of experimenting, I have learned what’s good on me and what’s not, what I like and what I dislike. I prefer blouses; smart casual mostly to cotton tshirts. After turning 3…

Hello Rizman Ruzaini, Bye Bye Syaiful Baharim!

Shocking kan? After my last post on Syaiful Baharim.

So what happened?

Ok, yesterday evening me and mom went to Jakel to get the lace. Sampai je Jakel, pegi la kat tingat kain exclusive tu, focus hanya untuk mencari lace. I wanted a simple, CHEAP, non-beaded lace. Any kind, asalkan cantik. The SA who helped us, who happens to be the owner and Mom's friend, mestilah tunjuk yang beaded Solstiss je. Without a doubt, Solstiss lace IS exquisite. Memang tengok muka automatically berseri-seri, bibir tersenyum-senyum. But, boy, the price! MasyaAllah..!

I was actually quite good; I actually said NO because the laces that she showed me are all very expensive, jenis ribu2 PER METRE! And I was looking to buy 4 metres of lace! So I said to Kak S (the owner), I prefer the simpler one, no beads, tak payah la Solstiss2 ni. So, she showed me some, plain, simple and sweet, I didnt have a problem getting just that.


Kak S: Who's your designer nanti?

Me: Syaiful Baharim..

Kak S: Oh, Syaiful. Di…

Be Prepared on Your Wedding Day!

So useful, this!

Print this and give a copy to your maid of honour/best friend/sister or whoever that will be close to you on your big day.

Often, brides forget the food and drink bit, but trust me, have some snack handy. Because you WILL be hungry. And don't forget straws! You don't want to ruin your lipstick :p

Okay, everything else is self explanatory.

You're welcome!
