Eating Healthy

Happy Sunday everyone! What’s the weather like at your place right now? It’s raining here in Perth today and it’s a little chilly as well. I guess winter has officially started for us Perthians. Autumn leaves can be seen everywhere all over the ground and soon enough, my trees will be naked 😛

Despite the rain and the gloomy weather, I am in good spirits today! Thank you Lord 🙂 I haven’t shopped in a long while and last night I finally bought a dress for my cousin’s wedding in September. I’m gonna be one of the bridesmaids and the color code for our dresses is coral/orange pink. I must admit it was a little difficult to pick something of that color and looked decent enough for a wedding but I finally stumbled upon one last night and it was surprisingly affordable too! I was so happy! Hehehehe… Too bad they didn’t have the dress in my size anymore though so I bought one in a larger size and am planning to get it altered to fit me.

Anyway, I have decided that I need to change my eating diet. Well, not for all my meals throughout the day but only for breakfast. ‘Cos I know it will be hard for me to cook and eat super healthy food at night since I’m not eating alone. And trust me, Mr S is pretty picky when it comes to food. So, the only meal that I can change to fit my needs would be breakfast.

Healthy Breakfast

This is what I had this morning for breakfast. I haven’t got much in my pantry so I could only make do with what I had. I’m gonna try to stock on some granola, seeds and avocado. These food can be pretty expensive but I’m hoping this would change my overall health so it’s a good investment I guess.

When I’m running out of time to prepare a proper breakfast in the morning, a small bowl of porridge (cooked oats) in the office never fails to keep me going until lunchtime 🙂

Vain Shot

Here’s a vain shot I took of myself this morning after Mass 😛 Hello~ *Waves* I love my iPhone front camera because its low resolution blurs out all the imperfections and blemishes on my face, hahahaha!!!

Signing off now, tata!

We Are Engaged!!!

Sorry this is one day late, but I have something very important to announce, lol. It’s a lil’ dumb to have to write this still because you would’ve known from the title of this post already hahahaha but yes, Mr S and I are engaged!!! The mister popped the question yesterday morning and I said YES! I mentioned that it still seems surreal that this had just happened and I still feel the same right now… 😳

THE breakfast

So, it all started with this breakfast he made me yesterday morning. It’s the first time he’s made me breakfast in bed and I thought it was really sweet of him. He secretly went to Ikea to get the trays by the way, lol! Luck was on his side because I was sleeping like a dead log while he was cooking. Heck, I didn’t even notice that he got out of bed, LOL!

I won’t *ahem* discuss what we talked about next because it was something very personal to us. =) He then surprised me with a box under the blanket, went to my side of the bed, got unto one knee, presented me the ring andddd…… asked if I would marry him!! And I of course, said yes!! 😆 I was so shy to look at the ring and didn’t really know how to react initially. He had to assure me that this was all happening for realzzz, LOL LOL!!! I’m such a dumb dumb 😛

Mr S had this all planned and he never once raised my suspicion, lol. I think he did a fantastic job 😛 Apparently, he already let our immediate families and closest friends of his know beforehand. It was super sweet of him to ask for my mum’s blessing a day before he actually proposed =)) In the olden days, it would’ve been like asking my mum for my hand in marriage HAHAHAHA!! 😆

A big THANK YOU to our parents for giving us your blessings!!! =) We love you… Also a big thanks to everyone else for being genuinely happy for us ^_^ Thank you so much for all your well wishes!

Lastly, a HUGE thank you to Mr S, for still loving me after all these years together (five years and six months + to be exact, hahahaha!!). Thank you for putting up with my stubbornness and weird temper. Thank you for accepting me for who I am – in both good and bad times. I love you.

Okay, enough of the lovey dovey talk, lol. Some pics to share with you guys! I apologize for grinning like a mad person in all the photos. I was too happy, hehehehe…

A very happy me!
