How I Handicapped Both My Arms for 72 Hours

So I went bouldering (wall climbing) for the first time over the weekend and learned a great deal about my body: my muscles are really weak.

I mean…it’s nothing new, right? But I think nobody expected me to be handicapped for three days and having to stay away from work for three days after some not impressive attempt at bouldering. I didn’t even try that hard to begin with!

Acknowledging The Two Sides of Young Cancer Survivors Group and Life

Slightly more than a year ago, I wrote about HITT boxing with LiquidCage as part our National Cancer Society Malaysia (NCSM) activity for the young cancer survivors. We don’t usually repeat our activities but we did HITT boxing again last month with the same instructor but at his new place: HIITREBEL.

Thanks to the previous experience, I knew what to expect this round. I knew I’m in to sweat a bucket, especially because I haven’t been working out for quite a while.

RK + Staci Couple Bucket List (By Our Wedding Guests)

When I was scouting for our wedding guest activities, I knew I wanted to do jenga guestbook and kissing menu when I saw the ideas. But I struggled with the third activity and only half-heartedly settled for “couple bucket list” — just because I already bought a jar that I had to fill up.

Pre-wedding Shoot at Tamarind Square, Cyberjaya with Gim from H Plus Studio

Based on the stress-o-meter on RK’s face, I’d say that the pre-wedding shoot (PWS) was one of his most stressful moments in life. Simply because the two biggest pimples of his life popped right before the photo session. 😂

3D2N Snorkeling Trip at Gilligan’s Pulau Aur, Johor – Apr 2019

I just left Pulau Aur, Mersing, Johor after a 3D2N snorkeling trip. Before I reach home and see how burned I am, let me just say that it was a very nice trip 😍. The coral was beautiful. The snorkeling activity was comfortable. The view was amazing. The resort and beach was private. The host was very nice. The package was worth it as well.

Actually I can’t recall if I’ve been to any snorkeling trip since high school, which is at least a decade ago, so I don’t have much to benchmark against. I don’t usually go for beach or island holiday where I actually get into water as well so read this review with a pinch of salt. Hahaha.

Thoughts on The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman

I finished reading The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman! I have to say that when I finished the free sample on Google Play Books, I was a little indifferent about reading the entire book. When I reached the midway, I felt quite convinced that while I believed in his theory, I thought it’s quite self explanatory.

Last Chinese New Year Before Marriage

Marriage. What a wonderful thing.

Chinese New Year. What a wonderful thing also.

But during the recent Chinese New Year, I realized that when both are put together, it may be quite an emo thing for a wife or wife-to-be. It was my last Chinese New Year celebrating it like I know it since I was born!

Thoughts on The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson

This book has been on my wishlist for a while because I like to read bestsellers. I’m aware of a couple of friends who read and recommended the book. I’m also intrigued by the 4.5 star rating on Google Play Books.

However, when I finished the 15 pages of free sample in one seating, I felt very repulsed to continue reading.

First Time Bathing Naked in a Japanese Onsen at Oedo-Onsen Monogatari (Odaiba, Tokyo)

If there’s one thing that I want to remember in detail from my trip to Tokyo last month, it’d be the Oedo-Onsen Monogatari experience. Translation: naked hot spring amusement park 😂.

Actually when I first came across the hot spring, I didn’t know we’d have to be naked. I got attracted by the word “amusement park”. The video showed girls wearing yukata, walking around in a Japanese village — eating, playing, taking photos.
