New style of Weight Exercise

I learnt a lot from this http://www.exrx.net/.
Find it really, extremely useful.

Yesterday, i did a new method for obliques (side waist) which is One Arm Straight Leg deadlift.
I took the 5kg and started working on it and today, i really felt the pain on my oblique (near my pelvic bone part) and my hamstring.

Good workout!

And not forgetting incline cruches.

Unit SI for Cholestrol

A colleague was asking what was the measurements for Cholestrol.

Got the information from the website:
http://myhealthyheart.com.my/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=4&Itemid=5

Cholestrol is some waxy stuff, i think perhaps, it could look like oil in our blood stream.
Cholesterol and triglyceride levels are measured in millimols/litre (mmol/L) or milligrams/decilitre (mg/dL).

Gym Freak Goes CG Visiting

I've been visiting several fitness clubs in Penang.
And last night, i went on CG visiting.

It gave me the same feeling of gym visiting.
I was trying to see the similarities and the differences, and trying to make the comparison of which is better.
What's more important is, choose the one that suits my needs the best.

Mother's Day Lunch at Kampachi, Equatorial Hotel Penang

It was supposed to be a mother's day lunch last week, but it was postphoned to this week.
Sadly, we all have to fork out extra Rm4 each since it's a price increase. It's RM62++ now.
Kampachi really know how to make business.
The place was still packed mainly with Japanese.
Moreover, it's a Mother's Day weekend.

Bad Afternoon

I think I have not bee napping during the afternoons, and i think I can't nap anymore in the afternoons.
I still have weird, bad dreams.

I remembered my workstation was elevated up on a hill-like area and there were empty spaces on the ground. There were plentiful of bananas and i decided to stuck plucking and plucking.
and somewhat, there were rubbers/extracts that got stuck to my hair and my teeth and my chin and also my NECK!! WHAT'S happening?

Then, i managed to pull through all the sticky stuff and turned into chewing gum.
How gross.
And, I had to do some 'last minute' work for my boss; Sort of like, providing the original data vs the changed data.

And to my horror, a friend started to ignore me and I ignored back.
And the day continued with canceled pingpong tournament (supposed to be on next Monday).

And.. i was at the beach, and there were some kind of kuanyin statue stacking competition..
and it all happened in the day..

And i dont' know how to PHRASE my dreams any b…

10-day Trial at Clark Hatch, Dato Kramat

The club is pretty much small, yet, it's still equipped with shower, toilet, steam bath and lockers.
There are not much machines for weights.
Perhaps, they focus more on cardio machines.

However, i really hate rude people in the gym.
I hate ppl who invade my space and block my mirror space.
Just because i don't know how to dance, they just shouldn't invade ppl's space!

The classes aren't that effective or solid like http://www.lesmills.com/ .
Anyway, i shall give it a try and see how it works for me.
The advantage is .. it's cheap and parking is free!

Sunshine Food Court's Claypot

I was at sunshine Food court for lunch.
There is not much choice to eat, and the western food is no longer open.

Since claypot rice is quite 'ho chiak' and it's only RM4, i decided to order and share with my colleague.
(since rice is high GI, i got to share laaa)

I didn't know that the spoon looks so OLD laio...
