Six Months!

Six Months!

This blog has turned six months now. It is weird that every time I reached a milestones like this, I would either think: “What?! Six Months already?” or “What?! Only six months? That feels like forever!” Or both at the same time. I think the fact that we are living in the weirdest time of our lifetime, we cannot help having this time-confusion feeling. I tried to think about last year, and remembered so little as if it has happened…

What is Hypoglycaemia?

What is Hypoglycaemia?

Hypoglycaemia (phew that was a difficult word to type…) is also known as low blood sugar. Not just low as in slightly lower than average, but when your blood sugar level suddenly dropped, and you will… I mean you will know when that happens. To me and my mother, the drop of blood sugar level would start a weird sickness almost like motion sickness and dizziness… or even when it dropped more drastically we can feel a bit faint. Not…

What is Comfort Food?

How Your Food Culture Affects Your Relationship With Food

How Your Food Culture Affects Your Relationship With Food

“Itadakimasu” Of all food culture in the world, I love the Japanese the most. Before they eat, they would put their hands together in front of their food, bow a little, and say “Itadakimasu”. Which now casually translated as something like “Bon apetit” but actually has a deeper meaning like being thankful for the food they are about to eat. But unlike saying grace, this has no religious undertone. Not just consider eating as a part of life — fuelling…

The Importance of Support System

The Importance of Support System

I think this is why weight management companies are popular. Having a support system is definitely a plus point when you are trying to lose weight. Having someone who is going to recognise your achievement, or push you harder for that extra mile, to shift that extra kilo… Some of us know the pain of trying to eat healthy while the other family members are not on board with the idea of swapping the butter with sunflower spread. Oh yes,…
