I have been having this obsession over Dragon Fruit for a week now and I just am so enjoying every bit of it.

It is not too sweet, rather bland, I like the crunch of the little black seeds . It is so tasty when it is chilled.

There are two types of dragon fruit; one is white fleshed while the other is red.

Health Benefits of Dragon Fruit:

* Contains high fibre and Vitamin C

* Helps to control the glucose level in Type 2 Diabetes.

You guys should go give it a try!

Much Love<3

I always have the intention of bringing my own reusable grocery bag each time I visit the supermart. However, I always seem to leave it all behind until I reach the groceries did I recall all about it.

So here is such a clever innovation of a grocery bag which is small enough occupy a space in our handbags, ensuring we will never leave it behind again.

Introducing the Flip & tumble grocery bag!

Size:
The bag measures 12”x14”x5” and has a 26.5“ length strap. Big enough for 3 large soda bottles. The ball is 3” in diameter, about the size of a peach.

Strength:
25 lb. capacity, so load it up with a bowling ball or two. A shoulder pad keeps heavy loads feeling light.

Material:
The bag is constructed of lightweight nylon ripstop.

You may visit http://www.flipandtumble.com to find out how it works and I am sure you will be itching to get one for yourself!

 

Get Some Alone Time April 23, 2008

I have friends around me who have been single for awhile now. They always go into self depreciation saying how unattractive they are which they perceive is the reason for their single-hood.

I have been consecutively in two long term relationships for the past 6 years. People always think that it is a big part of their life accomplished by being attached. For me, while being attached, sometimes I also date myself. Yes, you heard that right!

So much of our life outside work was filled with things that most of us do not enjoy doing. Surely, that needs to be changed. We are so often occupied pleasing everyone else without knowing what really made ourself happy.

There are more than one way to enjoy single-hood:

1. Put on a dress, apply some makeup and escort yourself to a movie which you have always longed to watch but cannot find anyone to go with all this while.

2. Take yourself to the beach with a good read and some good light snacks, do not forget the music.

3. Book yourself an appointment at the spa to keep your body in a relaxed state.

4. Retail therapy is a girl’s most effective mood-uplifter. If you are on a tight purse string, window shopping is just as therapeutic!

5. Do you realize that sometimes you do not even know yourself well enough?  Now, take sometime off after a long day’s work. Sit down with some soothing music in the background and evaluate on your life.

“Who do you want to be?”

“What do you really want to do?”

“What are your future plans?”

6. In order to find a more suitable partner in future, you should also sit back and evaluate on your past relationships so that you do not keep hitting your head in the same brick wall each time when you are in a relationship.

Ask yourself questions:

“What were the problems you faced in the previous relationship?”
“Why made me commit to the previous relationship?”

You do not want to change yourself too much to suit someone who very different from you in a relationship. Many women in their late 30s and 40s have decided that although they long for someone to come home to, but they will not settling for just anyone. Many single women these days also have a mindset that “life is great in this modern world with equal rights, great jobs and vast opportunities. We no longer need man to protect us or make an impact on our life. Staying with someone for the sake of it is just a waste of time!”

Dating yourself could teach you many things – What you really enjoy doing, who your true good friends are, what is most important to me. This period of single-hood allows you to travel well and deep as well as focus on building your career.

Bear in mind, you are not going to find the best person for yourself if you are not being who you really are.

After getting to know yourself better, you will definitely find that person whom you just know you will spend the rest of your life with. Then, you will save some time on relationships which will not bear fruits and stick to the right path all your life!

“A real relationship, whether it is with a friend or a lover, is about finding someone who brings out the best in you, enjoys the best in you and loves the things you love.”

Personal Goal Setting

Filed under: Uncategorized — windowshoppers @ 10:39 pm

The new week is ahead of us, it will be good if all of us could put down personal goals which we wish to achieve within the week in order to keep us on the right track to achieving our long term goals in life.

All, or most of us have personal goals. We have some short term goals such as those we want to achieve within a month or even a week. Controversially, we also have long term ones which leads us to achievements of a lifetime such as a successful career.

Setting goals helps us to generate plans for our future. Allows us to choose our directions in life and identify distractions and get them out of our way.  They also gives us motivation and builds our self confidence as we realize how we can reach our goals faster.

Here is a general guideline in Setting your Personal Goals:

Step 1: Take an overview of your life which allows you to look at the bigger picture of what you want to do with your life. Decide on the larger scale goals which you want to achieve to make your life more fulfilling.

Step 2: Break these jargons into smaller pieces like jigsaw puzzle separated into its smaller pieces. Making sure these smaller goals will progressively lead you to your ultimate goals of life.

Step 3: In order to allow your life to be a more all-rounded one, perhaps you can categorize your goals into some of these:

* Artistic

*Attitude

*Career

*Education

*Financial

*Family

*Physical

*Pleasure

*Public Service

Step 4: Set a realistic time frame of even up to 25 years whichever is comfortable for you. Do note that by cramping your many long term goals within too short a time frame might cause you to lose motivation when you fall short of your expectations.

Attempt to create daily To-Do List which sees you through completion of your daily task and by doing a daily reflection according to your To-Do List will allow you to learn from mistakes and gain satisfaction in what you have completed in the day.

C’mon and take on these baby steps which will go a long way with you.
