Arrival in Chengdu China – Read this!

Hello Everyone,

Arrived today in Chengdu. We are right now staying in a place right in the center of chengdu called FlipFlop Poshpacker. Right in the center town and it is walking distance to malls and eating places.

Upon check in, the hotel were celebrating Hallowen and we some fun and we’ve got to taste the famous hotpot Sichuan style.

This hotpot is super biting spicy and burning to my lips.

You see the image above, we met new friends again.

The trip from Singapore to Chengdu was smooth 4 hours.

Things to note when you arrive at the airport.

Aside from having your China Visa,

Your Finger print is also needed. All of your fingers.

The airport was organise and clean.

There are people who speaks English too.

However, most People specially the Taxi Drivers do not know English, so be aware of your hotel direction and try to write the address in chinese if you can.

The Map to show the driver is important.

DO NOT TAKE PRIVATE CAR/ TAXIS OFFER FROM THE EXIT/ARIVAL AT CHENGDU AIRPORT.

Walk to the taxi stands ahead of the exit because it is run with meter reading.

We paid 70.00 Yuan from Chengdu Airport to town. The real public taxi is safer and are most honest too.

Hope that helps.

Let me know if you guys need help.

I AM NOT AS LOOKING GOOD AS BEFORE Darn it!😭

If you guys can see the side below the arms, it is actually bulging.

I start to become workaholic again.

Setting infront of computer.

Eating late at night

Drinking wine.

Less exercise for just 2 weeks.

That’s what happen.

Here are more photos of me

I have gain about 3 kilos. That is too fat.

Basically, it is easy to loose weight.

What we need is a Decipline

1 Cut down on salt

2. Remove sugary food.

3. No sauces on your food

4. Avoid bad carbo such as white bread, heavy fake glutenated rice.

5. Try to avoid stress

6. Sleep 7 to 8 hours

7. Keep moving such as exercising every single day.

8. Have a goal and target when you want to achieve it.

 

I will be doing that again.

I was overwhelmed with being an english teach really.

It is fun to be working again.

But I cannot go on being a workaholic.

We all need balance.

Iphone Xs Max (Testing Shots) Iphone Photography

Hello guys,

Let’s talk about the new Iphone XS Max.

This is a selfie shots of me. It has been edited.

However, let me show you some features about this phone:

What I have is the Iphone XS max 256GB..

“There is no home button. To take a screen shots – you need to press both off/on and high volume at the same time in order for you to screen shots the display of this phone.”

Feels heavy of course(for small hand lady) because it is like the Iphone plus size of the older version.

THE REAL PURPOSE OF THIS BLOG IS TO SHARE WITH YOU ABOUT THE PORTRAIT MODE:

In portait settings, you can see

NATURAL LIGHT

STUDIO LIGHT

CONTOUR LIGHT

STAGE LIGHT

STAGE LIGHT MONO.

I will show you some example of each features:

NATURAL LIGHT

This image is set to DF4.5 in natural light on a selfie- meaning the camera face me. You see the background. It is blurry. It is just how I like when taking shots with a phone. Compare with natural light, I have a better skin tone in this natural light mode.

STUDIO LIGHT

The same depth of field but in studio light mode. Fantastic detail of my skin. Background blurred.

CONTOUR LIGHT

In this shots, I do not seems to identify between studio and contour light.

They look similar.

STAGE LIGHT

Without changing my position and background, you can see that in this shots, my background is black.

Very precise , skin and tone of is clear without grains. Even the shots were all handheld.

STAGE LIGHT MONO

In stage light mono shots, the image is black and white. Fantastic details of hair lights and skin. I cannot remember exactly if my Iphone 7 took such detailed shots before.

I did not change my position. I was still setting in the same position as I took all other images.

Is it worth to buy a $2050 Singapore Dollar phone?

I have this phone for simple reason:

– I like something that is handy when travelling.

– I need something that when I take a shots, I am able to use it to post to social media.

– Most of All I like something that takes quality image.

So far, I only have this phone for 3 adays now.

Never know I can find fault with it.

(The beauty of the Iphone XS, in my guess, one of the best feature is the Camera).

DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE.

– If you think you only need a phone, do not buy this phone. Keep what you have.

– I assume there are good apps too to capture great images.

I just cannot find that app yet and it’s why I bought this phone.

If you know, please leave a comment below to share it to us.

 

This is a video review I created:

 

Having Sex In the Gym

Hello you guys,

I wanted to entertain you today.
I hope the title of this video does not intimidate you.

Here I just wanted to give you some ideas what to do in the gym.
I am not a pro. But I learn from others too like in youtube videos.

I can only hope that you too get motivated.

Sometimes, we do exercise because it feels good.

Sometimes, we do exercise because it releases our stress.

Whatever your goals, I am happy to know that you are doing the same.

Leave a comment so I can subscribe you.

Travel the world with me.
Please subscribe and HIT that bell to notify you the next time I upload more travel videos.

If We Think It’s Tough, It will be Tough. We need a MOTIVATION

Hey Everyone,

Just a Quick MOTIVATION from me to You today.

A western couple went in to the gym where I was at 30 minutes ago.

Both couple took a 10 Kg Hand weights and a 20kg in pairs.

Place the hand weights on the floor next to their towels and bags.

But?… Both went to the trade mills.

After just 5 minutes or so, the man came down from the trade mills. Was busy with his phone as he looked at it (I assume).

Back to trade mills again and 5 minutes later both hold the hand weights and start to pose like squats and hands in the air.

Maybe about 3 minutes, the man did the push ups on the floor.

2 or 3 push ups From the man- the couple decided to leave. Though they do not look like they were in a hurry.

To me, I think spending 20 minutes in the Gym plus more time on the phone means nothing.

However, the couple looks like they just started or perhaps it was their first day going to the Gym.

Besides, this couple looks like they both really need to exercise… really!

The QUESTION IS

WHAT MOTIVATES US TO EXERCISE REALLY?

1. If you would asks me, simply because I love eating.

Eating makes me happy.

However, I like to keep fit too as I like to look great when I am wearing a dress.

2. Second thing that motivates me is I am afraid of getting CANCER.

3. I feel much happier after exercise.

Many casual friends and customers from my business died of cancer.

A close Friend died of Breast cancer a few days ago.

That gives me motivation in Going To The Gym.

NOW, LET US GO BACK TO THE WESTERN COUPLE AT THE GYM.

I still cannot understand some people why taking time to even drive to the gym and yet just spending so short time.

To me, at least an hour focus to exercise at least.

Forget about your phone. (Bloody gadgets these days)

Why do you think the western couple left the gym without a drop of a sweat?

Life can be very tough if we think it is.

If I am in the Gym, I listen to a pumping Gym Music that keeps me kicking and doing set ups, push ups, carry weights and all sort of what’s available.

CONCENTRATE AND FOCUS ARE 2 keys to keep me going.

Thinks of a reward, think of how you would sleep better, look great and feel great if you do exercise.

🤗 I hope that motivates you my friends.

Connect me with me.

Here is my lemon story.

As always,

Elvie

Some Food to Try Out When In Malaysia and Singapore

Hey everyone,

Today, I visited to Desaru – East Coast part of Johor Bahru here in Malaysia.

It was a 1.5 hour drive from Johor Bahru Liesure Farm resort.

Stop by for lunch at one of the seafood restaurant in Desaru.

As I thought maybe many of my readers are living in USA, Europe and other parts of the world who may not familiar with some Asian Food.

So here, I like to Introduce you to some food you may and should try when you are in Singapore or Malaysia.

We started with Water melon Juice. It was 1 pm and I was super hungry to be exact.

Then we had a bowl of Japanese Squids Salad. But this taste terrible. I did not like the sauce. Perhaps, should rather call it Malaysia style squid salad.

Then the Kway Teow. (Flat white or glass noodles) cooked and fried with shrimp.

If you like noodles, try this one, because this is better than the yellow noodle. It is nice when it has some shrimps in it and a little bit of chilli.

This is garlic tiger prawns.

Fried Garlic were sprinkled on top and taste perfect with lemon juice squeezed on it.

Next dish is called kangkong blachan. – this dish is with cooked seasoned chilli.

Then we had this Pepper Crab as our final dish.

But this crab is not fresh. It has been dried out inside its shell. You can tell it is been frozen for Long period of time.

Eating in Malaysia and eating seafood in Singapore at seafood restaurant, I can tell that Singapore still serve the best cooking for crabs- chilli or pepper and other kinds of seafood.

Best place I can recommend is at Singapore East Coast Park. Jumbo, and many other seafood restaurant along East Coast Park in Singapore.

However, please do try many seafood and other kinds of Asian food when you happen to be in Singapore and Malaysia.

Thank you for connecting with me.

Love,

Elvie

Saturday and Sunday were mostly I take time off from my work.

I will enjoy cooking at home and indulge a glass of white wine such as Tahuna.

Tahuna brand were been one of the favourite in my home. Not just white!

It’s Tahuna Sauvignon Blanc

I can add this to seafood pasta sauce.

But having it with steam fish such as in image is wonderful and it is a perfect combination.

DO YOU WANT TO KNOW THE QUICK WAY OF COOKING FISH AT HOME?

Well, it is actually very simple.

Steaming fish can be a good deal.

Here’s HOW.

Get a decent size fish from your nearby market.

In where I live, I go to a groceries store as this is where I can assure it is safe and I can ask them to clean for me.

1.I come home with a clean fish- scale and inner part fish if you can.

  1. Add some Chopped

fish if you can.

  1. Add some

garlic,

squeeze fresh tomatoes

lemon grass,

dash of lemon juice,

oil,

salt and pepper to taste.

A little water or white wine is better if you have no children eating the fish though.

Place it on slow fire to steam and gently cooking.

About 15 to 20 minutes, the water will subside and fish is cooked.

Yummmy! Let’s eat!

Happy Sunday everyone.
