May Fitfam

The month of May was almost filled with activities, from part time work in the Safra gym in Yishun, to finally getting my lazy ass to gym for the first time myself, getting back to pole dancing at Pole Dance Academy and to even heading to a try-out at Tigerair and Singapore Airlines walk-in recruitment (I shall dedicate a post for it when I’m free to write the details.)

And I’m really thrilled at the results for my hard work and dedication to gymming, my back is finally getting back in shape and I’m loving how much my back muscles are starting to pop! Ok, my arms are still pretty flabby at this moment but chill ya, I’m slowly working it too. I’m still working hard on my abs though, they are probably the hardest to achieve because since the 3 months of camping at home my fats have been accumulating and forming a chunky ring of spare tire at my tummy and I’ve been working hard running on the treadmill to burn them off despite how much I hate running. Of course, I have to gain back my core strength because they are super duper weak and I can’t even go up to an elbow stand. I need to get the strength all back so I can do an invert and straddle again.

I’m really glad and satisfied with this really active (maybe not so much) lifestyle and I am really enjoying every moments of it although I should probably be worrying about my poly debt… well, I just hope that things will eventually turn out well for me. And of course, I used to be really worried about how I will end up looking muscular and that no guys will probably like me but nah, SCREW IT! Let them judge and I will keep on training to be stronger and fitter, to a better me and a stronger poler! CHEERS~ 😀

French Soufflé from Miam Miam

Behold your senses and keep your mouth closed before they start to drool, presenting you Soufflé!!!

It was a catching up session with Siru the other day and we had our usual lunch at Keisuke Ramen in Orchid Hotel, Tanjong Pagar and after which we decided to have Brother Bird for the delicious mochi donut with soft serve in Bugis, and so we took a train down… and walked some distance in the hot and humid weather. And to our disappointment they were closeddd! DAMN…

So we ended up having to choose between Miam Miam and Llao Llao, and since both of us hadn’t tried Miam Miam, we decided to step into the place. The interior was open concept and beautiful decorated to dark wood furnishing, black metal frames, cosy cushioned seats and lights, feels alittle french-inspired.

We took quite awhile to decide what to have between the deliciously looking french toast and the gorgeous elegant soufflé and yes, we both ended up ordering 2 soufflés, one in vanilla the orginal flavor ($9.80++) and the other in matcha ($11.80++).

The wait was about 30mins and so we ordered each ourselves a iced matcha (top up $1.50++) and a good hearty chat about usual, work, studies and future.

My Verdict: The soufflés were indeed rich and creamy but at the same time light and fluffy, I love the crispy top layer of the shell. It’s my first time trying such a dessert but honestly, I probably wouldn’t return for the second time. I don’t really find myself paying for such an exquisite yet petite dessert unless they are well, cakes. Well, you could always give it a try but keep your expectations low, and I’m probably someone fails to appreciate it.

Rejections

I don’t know how guys are able to handle rejecting someone like a piece of cake because personally, I find myself struggling to find the courage to tell someone that I’m not into them. It’s like standing in between hurting them and not bearing to. I’m really helpless at this. Urgh.

I always find rejecting someone to be a really cruel act, it’s like dashing his/her dreams and hopes, but deep down I know that as much as the truth may hurts, it will not waste their time and hurt someone even more.

But finding the right words, the right time seems like a hard work. I even had to googled on articles and websites on how to reject a guy nicely. I don’t want to be mean disappearing and blocking someone without a trace, it’s just way to immature in handling things. I’m not that of a matured girl either but I just want to be nice, minimize the hurt to the minimum is probably the best I can do right?

Sometimes it may not be that he/she is not good enough for you, it’s just whether the person entered your life at the right timing, or probably if they are able to catch your attention. Being nice isn’t everything. Everyone, anyone can be nice, even a stranger whom you just brushed shoulders with, but it’s about putting in the effort to know more about someone, the enthusiasm;  trying ways to make someone day better, the effort.

Anyway, I kinda side track a little, what I really want to voice out is that I really wish people would be a little more brave, a little more courageous, a little more responsible. If they led someone on, be it intentionally or unintentionally, they have the responsibility to tell the other party that “i’m not into you.” (in probably the nicest way possible).
