Diet

I had a crazy but fun week. The hubby took some days off from Friday. On that day, we went to pray at the Mosque and had sushi at Kura zushi. Saturday was usual. Sunday we had lunch at a friend's place and this is what I wore:

White scarf - gift from my Dad
Hanes Tee - Home's
Pink maxi dress - Chatujak week end market, Bangkok
Tan clutch - random shop in Harajuku
White mules - thrifted
Bangle - 100 Yen store in Saty's department store
Gold chain - Tsutsumi
Key pendant - can't remember




I love the dress because it is very airy. The material is very. It is the perfect summer dress. I also love the clutch bag I wore. It does not match the outfit but I do not care. I wanted to wear it seeing that I have not been able to use it for a while. Having a toddler requires me to carry a bag with all kinds of stuff from diapers to changing clothes. I miss carrying a small bag to go out. The shoes are easy to wear as well. But they are becoming a bit tight. I did gain some weight. And I realized it but it is like a slap in the face when I try to wear my favorite clothes (like my boyfriend jeans) and they are too tight. The last time I was that heavy, I was pregnant with my second son. This is bad. I need to do something. I am thinking on cutting back on certain foods (but not entirely because if I do I may crave them even more) such as sugar, butter, cheese, and bread. I also want to move more. I know that the heat is not helping but I need to exercise. Nothing crazy, just a walk by the park after eating, and moving my core on some upbeat music (like Beyonce's Move your body). I really hope to loose 5 to 10 kilos. Knowing me, it is almost impossible. But am I try! Do you have some advice on great diet.
And to finish our week in style, we had some friends over for lunch on Monday. And on Tuesday we went at Shakey's for some greasy and cheesy pizza. The pizza was great but it did not help my diet. I did not have dinner to compensate. How was your week?

A la Camerounaise

Remember when I said that I was never going to change my style, because I like what I like (which is to be comfortable)?

Well I lied! My style is slowly changing. As my love life is in shambles at the moment ( I will get to that in a future post, I promise), I feel the need to go for a drastic change. I have contemplated the idea of cutting my hair (been there, done that!), dying it blond/ red or just forget this Hijabi thing all together. But as always, it is in the clothing department that I get to transform myself.

Truth be told, I am sure that even when things were perfectly normal at home, I would still go with a style change. The reason being that I am influenced at work. Women at my job are very simple and casual but they can turn the heat up from time to time. My favorite day is Friday when almost every one get to dress up in Traditional Attire. As someone who does not have many traditional attires, I am amazed at all the designs and styles out there. My eyes are feasting and …

When after work turns into a Fashion shoot

I went to my first "After work" the other day. For those who do not know what that is, "After work" is when colleagues get together for drinks or diner after work. Oups! I forgot to tell you! I started working for an international aid agency recently. I finally found myself a job that I also happen to like. Praise the Lord! I have been working for the last few months. It is challenging but I get to learn so many new things. And the best part are the people I get to work with particulalry the ladies. I enjoy them, every single one of them for they all have interesting personalities. They are also hilarious. I spend my days laughing. And I could not be more grateful to God for that!
Since two of my co workers were leaving (sad part of my job: people do not tend to work there for a long time), we decided to surprise them with an "After work"/ farewell party. We went to Marina Bay, which is a seaside hotel with a fabulous pool located in a hip area called …

Ramadan Lethargy

Hello dears.

How are you?

And for those fasting, how is your Ramadan so far?

We are in the last week of Ramadan and I am feeling great. I cannot complain.
However I could not help but notice a certain lethargy that has engulfed the town and the people living in it. since the beginning of Ramadan. For starters people go to work later than usual because they are still trying to catch some sleep between the time they eat and pray in the morning and the time they go to work. It is harder particularly for women who wake up early to cook something for their families. Even when you get organized and cook something the night before going to bed, you still have to get up earlier to heat it up. And most women I know are not content on cooking something simple, like ordinary breakfast. They want to make elaborate meals that would please their families. They feel the pressure more than anybody else, and they sleep also less.
This lack of sleep can have some serious consequences on the body and the m…
