10 Ways on How to Stay Fit at the Office

Humans weren’t made to sit down, we were made to be active! At least that is how I feel. Hands are for doing, legs are for walking, just as the eyes are for seeing and the ears for hearing. Each one has a natural function and when we think of  an image of the human…

Straits Times Run in the Park 2013

Turns out that there were two runs that took place in the morning, Straits Times Run in the Park  and the CSC Run by the Bay. I chose to run the former because I wanted a change of scenery. The route for CSC was at the Marina Barrage where I had been running for the past…

Cold Storage International Triathlon Singapore 2013 Registration is Open

I think my title says it all right? Lol. If you are into tris or thinking of going for one, this is it. I was pleasantly surprised to be invited to take part in this event because I am considered a noob at this, having done only the Meta Sprint Series earlier this year and the…

Stuck in a Rut – 16jul

One week. Well, almost. I haven’t been really doing anything much the past week. Every since I got sick with a bad cough, I kinda just rested. But that’s the thing, I feel soooo lazy to get up and go again. Just over the weekend, I was supposed to go to the gym but I…

Giant Pasta Shells Stuffed with Minced Chicken and Mushroom over Homemade Tomato Sauce – Low Carb Recipes

Another passion of mine has something to do with the kitchen. Whenever I have time, I like to bake and cook (in that order). Initially, I liked baking your typical sinful desserts, but  I found myself indulging a bit too much after every batch of cookies! Thus, gaining a couple of pounds then. 🙁 So,…

Writing this on a Sunday night, I realised that I have washed my hair 3 times and showered at least 6 times over the weekend! Why? That was cos of the intense workout session I had on Saturday, where I did a swim in the morning, weights session in the afternoon, followed by cycling in…

What You Should Know About Your First Spinning Class

I love running. Let me say that and get it out of the way. People who know me know that I like to run. The reason I decided to try out spinning was because I needed something that could give me a good cardio workout but was low impact at the same time as I…

Shape Run 2013 Singapore Race Pack Collection

I don’t think I went for last year’s run as it clashed with the inaugural Pocari Sweat Run 2012.
