For the Soul

Sorry guys!! I know I haven't been blogging as much now, but i'm really busy these days... All I want to do when I reached home is to zombify (if there's such a word haha) on my bed :O

Anyway, so this is what I've been up to these days!

FOOD FOR THE SOUL:
Au Jardin

It was a super impromptu decision to dine there so i was REALLY REALLY UNDERDRESSED given this is such a classy restaurant :(
It is a secluded bungalow in the middle of the Botanic Gardens. I really like the decor inside!! And I love how the tables are so spaced out so there's alot of privacy :) The servers were really professional as well. Even the free-flow of bread was sooooooo good :)

MOVIE FOR THE SOUL:
Caught "This Means War" and I really love it as well!! DAMN FUNNY!!!
And I thought I learnt a thing or two from the show, about falling out of r/s. lol.

FIT FOR THE SOUL:
Went for 3 gym classes on Saturday - Hot Yoga, Bodypump and Sh'Bam!!
Hot Yoga is really cool, and I'm really beginning to like yoga alot. Love the after feeling, sweating everything out, the calmness, the  "ME" time. Totally refreshed everytime after a yoga session :)
But i must admit IT IS NOT EASY. Some poses are just... MISSION IMPOSSIBLE for me.

Bodypump:

As you can see, involves alot of weights. WHICH I REALLY, DON'T LIKE :(

AND THE BEST GOT TO BE SH'BAM!!! Kind of like a blend between dance and aerobics.
SUPER DUPER FUN. And the instructor, he is mega FUNNY!! like.. SUPERRR. Not to mention he's cute too ^^

And to those concerned readers who are worried that I'll have bad complexion cuz I put on makeup while I exercise, FRET NOT. NO FOUNDATION NO POWDER. Purely only eyeliner (to make my eyes bigger) and some eye concealer for my super panda eyes :D NOTHING on cheeks/forehead/nose okayyyy!

Needless to say, it is VERY tiring to have 3 classes back to back haha. All I have now are ACHES ALL OVER. Neck, back, shoulders, arms, abs, butt, thighs..... I feel like a grandma when I walk now :(
