Old Skool Fever

Always been a hip hop fan but this new hip hop instructor gives new groove to my hip hop class. He brings back the Old Skool...and boooyyyy...I love the old skool!!!And I'm totally in love with his classes. I feel my life is back! I can't wait Tuesday, eventhough it's far from my work but it's all worth it.
I'm wondering if I'm too old for the hip hop thing?

I Condemn The Terorists and The Bombings

Yes, I condemn the terrorists and the bombings which happened Friday ( 17/7/09) last week. Not just the casualties but the daily life. With these bombings, the malls increase their security level and they don't use metal detector anymore but the old fashioned way checking the inside of the bag one by one. Which is ( for me ) a privacy assault. Why? because I often carry gym bag, and inside it are my private belongings. Can you imagine a male digging out my bag? Where's my privacy.
Another thing is there was rumor of bomb threat and caused the classes are cancelled.

I hate you terrorists, you make other's people life more difficult and don't make religion as justification to your evil actions!

My Guilty Pleasures

Hey even top athletes or world record holders have their own guilty pleasures, right ? Since I'm a food lover, live in country filled with spices and great eating buddies. No surprise I have my own guilty pleasures, here they are in random order :

Nasi Padang ( Padang Rice )
Hmmm..a perfect lunch, this bento type with Padang style. Padang is another name for West Sumatera where its food rich with coconut milk and the green chilli.

Chilli Crab
I'm a cancer with crab symbol, means I love crabs and including chilli crab. Very delicious. BTW, when it comes to crab, I'm very selfish..so no sharing please!

Keripik Paru
These chips made from cow's lungs ( yikes sounds gross ) very delicious snacks and rich with saturated fat hehehehehe...

Rujak Buah
Indonesian style fruit salad with peanut and brown sugar dressing. I often crave for this during my PMS. Perhaps because of the sour , hot and sweet taste.

Sate Kambing ( Lamb Satay )
My family love this dish. This dish is very dangerous for those who have high cholesterol. Sweet taste of soy sauce combined with peanut sauce and completed with sticky rice and pickles.
Es Podeng ( Ice Podeng )
Indonesian dessert, great to wrap up the meal. Near my school there's this es podeng seller who sells his ice at 8am!!!! Best for hot weather like Jakarta.

There are more on the list such as french fries with melted cheese on top and others that I can't list here. Because it would be very llloooonnnnggg.....

Hot Yoga Anyone?

Last Wednesday, I was on top of my plateau and dead bored playing with those weights. Then went to yoga studio to check the timetable. Hmm..hot yoga is on at 6 o'clock, I just gave it a go. I never been a yoga person, although I've tried some yoga classes but seems there's no fire flickering between me and yoga. But hey when hitting a plateau it's time to spice up the exercise.

Hot yoga is which the temperature set to 42 degrees celcius and it's just another name for Bikram Yoga. The challenge I felt : my patience!! Why? Since the movements are slow and the room temperature is heat up you might feel fed up with it and just want to give up. It was like in sauna and doing yoga for 1 hour! The sensation was great though.

The tips and caution :
1. Drink a lot of water to keep you away from dehydration.
2. It's wise not to consume any meal two hours before
3. If you're expecting, this is not a yoga for you because it raises the core body temperature
4. Make sure you smell good :P
