Life is like a doughnut..it tastes sweet

Everyone has a doughnut story and this is mine.



Mmmmm...yummy in my tummy!That doughnut is drooling delicious and I want it! A single doughnut packs at 230-420 calories. You have to drink coffee or cola with it to make your day and a coffee cup with milk & sugar clocks in at 30 calories while a 12 ounce cola clocks in at 140 calories. So there goes that sweet looking doughnut, au revoir, hasta la vista,good bye. I love doughnuts and my fave partner to go with it is coffee. But since my stint with the dreaded S (stroke), I have to forsake it!

Now comes my boy, handing me a box, the drooling delish doughnuts! This is for me? And he goes, "yes Mommy" why give me a box of doughnuts? he says it's mother's day, happy mother's day, Mommy! Aaaahh! I'm blown away, I feel emotional, very mommy like. All I can say was "thank you 'jay". But then the sister chimes in, it's not yet Mother's day, it's next Sunday! My son, sheepishly fired back, it's advance.

Every day is Mother's day for us mommies, mamas, nanays, whenever we feel the love of our children. Life is sweet, it tastes like doughnut!

As for the doughnuts, well I have an excuse to munch a whole piece!

Middle life is beautiful.

Till next time, God bless!

Product Review: Maxi Peel Zero

Nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty. - Coco Chanel There are so many ads shown in media about skin care products for pimple & acne removal and at the same time for smoothening and lightening of facial skin. Usually these are skin care products that exfoliates the skin to remove the skin impurities brought by exposure to nature, pollution and even the cosmetics you apply on your face. Exfoliating the skin would mean darkening of the skin first, then peeling, last is the reddening of the skin.

I have tried facial exfoliant before but after a few days of using it  I have to stop using it completely because, it was so painful. My face felt raw, even the touch of the wind or water on my face was so painful. I have to cover my face with my hanky because even a whiff of wind hurts my face. My face became reddish, it looks I've been extremely sun burned.

I received sample products from SampleRoom and one of the items  I ord…

Singapore:Day 2 Kampong Glam, Sentosa, Universal Studios Singapore

I was supposed to start the 2nd part of my Singapore trip last night but because of a lot of work at the office (making up for the days I was away from work), I was so tired when I arrived home. I'm missing Singapore already so I'd better start my blog right now!


Anyway, day 2 started earlier today. While Charmi was still sleeping, I sneaked out of bed and took a bath. The bathrooms at Meadows Hostel where we stayed were very clean but you have to bring along your own toiletries because they are not provided. No need to bring towels, they will provide it, and before I forget when we checked in, the receptionist gave us 2 free adapters. By the way, I booked our hostel via Booking.com. No credit card  or prepayment was required, I paid in cash at the hostel.
Before taking a bath, I took my breakfast and I have the pantry by myself. The pantry has an overview of the sky rise buildings in Singapore and I was enjoying the sprinkling of rain. It was a beautiful morning, no hurries,…

My Muse

A few days from now, I'll be 52. For a while, I stopped on my track and the thought occurred to me "what next?". It is a loaded question because, in retrospect, it doesn't only imply, what's next to write after the line "I'll be 52" but therein lies broader sentiments which are: what to do next at 52, what is stored for me at 52, have I lived my life the best that I can at 52, am I contented at 52, am I okay at 52, am I happy at 52, am I the ME I want to be at 52.

A couple of weeks ago I blogged about reinventing oneself at midlife. That article shot straight to my heart because I am in the stage of wanting to reinvent myself now I'm in my midlife. Quietly, small thoughts about wanting to do something other than my work creep into my mind. There is this nagging feeling to do something different that would set a different tone in my monotonous life.

I felt incomplete.
I asked myself, "is that bad?", "am I ungrateful for wanting mor…
