How I Celebrated Christmas & New Year’s Eve In 2011…

I’m so happy that I got to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s with that special someone for the first time this year. He’s usually back in Hong Kong to visit his family but he’s postponed the trip until mid-Jan instead. We also planned a huge Bali trip with a bunch of friends after New Year so that’s already a lot of traveling for the busy man at work.

So so proud of what he’s doing, in fact, 2011 has been a great year for both us. If you asked me last year where I think I’d be in 2012, Kuala Lumpur will probably not be my first answer. But I’ve met some truly amazing friends here and opportunities seem to keep opening doors to endless possibilities that it has made my time here incredibly memorable. Looks like I’ll be sticking around…

I’m grateful and feel blessed to have met so many genuine people here –  Sarah, the hitz.fm crew (JJ, Ean, Ray, Moots…), Josiah, Natacha, Cay, Julie, Patricia, Jeanette, Helen, Henry, Hansen, Kym and Dawn, just to name a few. The list goes on… You know who you are! 🙂

Been looking everywhere for this! My baby finally got it for me for Christmas. Someone on Facebook commented on this photo and said "That's an ugly purse." Hahaha! Well, he DID also get me a nice Coach handbag.
My home workout station is complete!
He also got me a subscription to Muscle & Fitness HERS. Blessed! Remember, knowledge is key! The more you know about nutrition and fitness, the more motivated you are to be healthy.
A Christmas present I got for myself (amongst other not-so important things)... A GYMBOSS TIMER! Perfect for High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) which I should definitely do more of.
Stocking up on supplements from Maxitone and Maximuscle. These are some of the products I've tried and really liked. 2012 is off to a FIT START! Will review them for you soon.
Hosted one of biggest NYE countdown events in KL with Joey G at The Curve. More than 15,000 people came to celebrate to watch the live performances and of course, the AMAZING fireworks!

The event also got HUGE press coverage! Read about it here.

Our first time celebrating New Year's together... 🙂

What NOT To Say To A Personal Trainer

I’ve been seeing a lot of these “Shit ___ Say” videos on YouTube and some are pretty damn hilarious. The first one I saw was “Shit Girls Say“. And then there’s “Shit Asian Girls Say“… Check out the rest on YouTube yourself but THIS ONE you definitely gotta watch… Some of the quotes are pretty dead on.

Shit Women Say To Personal Trainers

“I think I need somemore cardio.”
“So, what do I have to eat to lose weight?”
“I feel like this is making me bulkier!”
“How many calories should I eat?”
“Squats, AGAIN?”
“I’ll just do somemore cardio and I’ll BURN IT OFF.”
“Push ups? NOO aahhh.”
“I’m like getting fatter. And then getting bulkier? And like, I exercise and eating healthier but like, nothing is happening.”
