Obesity is a sign of deficiency in Vitamin D

What do you do when you are growing older & your metabolism rate is starting to slow down. My sides are starting to fill up, I hated that word "love handlers" !!! But I'm developing my very own! I've been slim all my life & then age catches up & wala.... love handles!

Even my upper arms are filling up & my tummy is growing & I'm pass my child bearing days ! Went to my doctor, he suggested I take a blood test. I have heard of the Vitamin D jab for boosting the metabolism system from many sources, so I guess it's time.

Took the blood test last week. Will be reviewing the results soon, maybe tomorrow. Below is a chart showing the signs of Vitamin D deficiency. Obesity is one of them. I might not be obese, in fact I'm far from that, but prevention is better than cure. That's the reason why I'm thinking of doing this Vitamin D jab. Also my girl friend has done this Vitamin D jab from Dr Keith 2 months back, & the results is good.

See... obesity is a sign of Vitamin D Deficiency

A great simple way to help you relax !

Open palm ritual for relaxation:

I was looking for something really easy to do to relax & came across this. Very easy to do & extremely effective.

1: Open your hands in front of you, palms facing up. Relax them. Notice the effect this has on the rest of your body. Other parts of you start un-clenching as you release your grip on life. Your jaw un-clenches, shoulders drop, stomach relaxes and buttocks un-clench.

2: Welcome the unknown. Invite new inspiration, new beginnings, new understanding and new adventures into the palms of your open, spacious, relaxed hands.

3: Intimately feel the pulsating energy that now swirls in ever increasing circles in the palms of your hands.

4: Sense you are connecting to something greater than yourself. A feeling of being supported.

5: The more open and spacious your hands the more open and spacious your thoughts, body and life becomes. Your hands have created the space for support and inspiration to flow your way. You are now connected to the pulse, rythum and heart beat of the universe.

Trusting it brings a little pocket of peace into your day as it often does for me

Ever dream of owing a castle?

My friend Nancy had recently bought a cluster house around Bukit Timah. It cost $3.15 million. Not a bad price for something that's freehold & in that area. That's until lunch yesterday

A group of us meet up once in a while to catch up & lunch is the perfect time. All of us either had stopped working, retired or have never worked haha... Anyway Nancy was telling us about this new purchase & the renovation etc.... We were having a good time, giving her some ideas of where to buy stuff then Mary brought up what 3million can buy else where.

Sigh .... the Iphone is seriously changing how we communicate. She punch a few keys & voila this appear! It's a castle in France going for only $2.92 million SGD !!! We were all impressed! Have this strange feeling of, "....hey .... I could easily afford that !" Truth is, these friends of mine all have overseas properties, but a castle ???? Now that's on a whole different level!

After a little dreaming,  as usual we get back down to earth. How to maintain something like this? The maintenance will bleed one dry, unless money falls from the sky ...haha. Well no harm dreaming right?

Famous local celebrity chef Sam Leong @ Forest Restaurant : Equarius Hotel

Recently a friend visited me & she wanted to go Sentosa so, I brought her there. Ok I'm not a fan of Sentosa. I always find it too far, hot & humid. But there's many fine dining there so .... Anyway, I decided to bring her to a restaurant I've not been to before: Forest Restaurant @ Equarius Hotel. 

Another friend drove us there. The entrance into Sentosa is $7- ....hmmm.... maybe to stop everyone from making Sentosa too crowded, & it's working  Anyway we found Equarius Hotel, parked & went to the restaurant. We didn't book before hand, lucky for us, it just opened so it's not crowded yet. We chose this place, because it's Famous local celebrity chef Sam Leong first venture into business after he left Tung Lok Group. So I thought must go support a bit lah. I like to support local talents.

I really like the ambience of the place. High ceiling ,very relaxing. The food comes in small interesting portions. Love the appetizers - very good. You can tell he put much thought into each one. Only complain is, it takes too long in between each course. I guess it's fine if the group is there to chit chat & hang out. But if you are in a hurry, you need to remind them to speed it up. We did & sure enough, it's better. However the service staff is not attentive enough, they don't seem to be very experienced. It's certainly hard to find good help these days.

Anyway we get to see Sam Leong cooking through the glass kitchen, which is nice. I think that's him ...haha... Took a few pictures of him :) 
Will I come back again? Sure ,but this time I'll make sure to tell them not to space out each course from the start.
This is the menu.

I like this, foie gras & king crab meat in cone

Tiger prawn is delicious & mushrooms
