Getting slimmer (and a thigh-gap) made easier with XIERRA Thermal Pants!

I have not been working out for the past 10 years… well… for the same old excuses - got married, gave birth (twice!), busy schedule, no time, too lazy, and the list goes on. But recently when my whole body felt like it’s getting stiffer (I couldn’t stretch as much as I could) and my stamina started to deteriorate, it hit me that I needed to work out again. Keeping up with my 2 little soldiers at home had become a challenge at some point. So, I started working out again. The first move after 10 years was no other than a torture, but definitely a satisfying one. Hehe…

Determined to lose a few inches off my thighs, hips and tummy, I opt for thermal pants, which are also known as rubber pants or sauna pants. For my mission (chewahhh....) I chose XIERRA Thermal Pants by @xierra.official.This thermal pants is made up of neothermal fabric technology & nylon, specially designed to enhance sweat production and burn more calories while working out.

I’ve been wearing #xierrathermalpants for the past 2 weeks, during almost every workout (at least three times a week), and I am very happy with the result. I may not have the thigh-gap I’ve been dreaming of yet, but yes, I do notice some improvements on the shape of my thighs and hip. Yess!!! Oh…guess what, with this thermal pants, I started to sweat even before I started to workout. How exciting!

XIERRA Thermal Pants is light, dry and very comfortable, perfect for any kind of workouts that needs stretching or to be used underneath your clothing. It fits perfectly like a glove regardless your body shape. It helped my body to sweat more than usual (hence burned more calories), increased my metabolism (generally speaking), as well as increased my mental and physical endurance (psychologically made me feel tougher…haha…). With its dynamic flexibility, it moves with my body through any type of exercises I do, be it cardio workouts, yoga, boxing, aerobics or even Zumba dancing. I even wear it to the office, underneath my office attire. The best part is no one at my office noticed it. I also wore it to sleep, replacing my thick heavy blanket, just because I can hardly stand the cold at night, especially when my thick-skinned husband turn on the aircond...haha.

I have mentioned how flexible XIERRA Thermal Pants is, haven't I? Who would have thought I could fit into S size considering how big my thigh is...haha... After a few more sessions, I have no doubt that I can 'upgrade' to XS in no time! Yezza! Never in my life I could have thought I can wear anything XS.

Minyak Herba Asmak by MHAMSB – an effective alternative for asthma and much more

After 8 years of not working out, I went for a 3-hour extensive workout last week, followed by a netball tournament for the alumni gathering of my secondary school the following day. (Haha yeah… what was I thinking?) Of course, the following day was a torture, my body was aching everywhere and I’ve been walking around like a robot… haha…

We all know that body massage would be a wrong move to ease muscle pains. Luckily I have Minyak Herba Asmak with me. So, I just rub it on and alhamdulillah, it helps!

I have personally experienced the benefits of Minyak Herba Asmak, so I think it’s best for me to share what I know about this herbal oil with my readers. Here goes.

Minyak herba asmak, mham, penawar batuk, penawar asma, lelah, asma, ubat lelah, minyak herba asma mujarab original

What is Minyak Herba Asmak?

Minyak Herba Asmak is a herbal oil, not only effective for asthma, cough, wheezing, colds, insect bites, cuts, fire burns and to reduce phlegm, but also effective for stomach pain, swelling, haemorrhoids, constipation, menstrual cramps, helps smooth the blood, headache , migraine, sinusitis, toothache, stroke and ulcers…. and in my case, for muscle pain.

Minyak Herba Asmak is a result from years of R&D, produced using nanotechnology in a GMP factory, in accordance to MOH standards. Minyak Herba Asmak is made of olive oil, coconut oil, Nigella Sativa, cucumber starch and various herbs. It is safe to be used by everyone including babies, quickly absorbed by the skin, hence its effectiveness. It comes in a 30ml packaging, small enough to carry on the move. Minyak Herbal Asmak can help you save as it only cost RM39 for a bottle of 30ml, so much less than my usual spending at every visitation to the clinic.

What is ENACTUS?

I have a lot of people, especially those I used to work with, asking where I work now, and when I told them that I work for Enactus Malaysia, this question follows almost like a default : “What is Enactus?”. I can simply say:

"Enactus is an international organization that brings together a network of student, academic and business leaders who are committed to enabling progress through entrepreneurial action.

We operate by establishing programs on university campuses around the world, which provide a platform for teams of students to develop innovative, entrepreneurial-based projects that (make a positive social impact and) empower people to improve their lives in a sustainable way."

But of course, the above often lead to more questions, so I think it’s best to explain a little bit more. So here goes:

ENACTUS stands for ENTrepreneurial, ACTion, US.

Enactus is an international non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring students to improve the world through entrepreneurial action. We provide a platform for teams of outstanding university students to create community development projects that put people's own ingenuity and talents at the center of improving their livelihoods. Guided by educators and supported by business leaders, our students take the kind of entrepreneurial approach that empowers people to be a part of their own success. Our work transforms both the lives of people we serve, and in turn, the lives of our students as they develop into more effective, values-driven leaders.

We currently have operations in 36 countries, with programs on more than 1,600 campuses and 66,000 student participants. Each of our campus programs functions like independent “innovation labs” and rather than mandating a uniform approach, students are challenged to get out of the classroom and work hands-on with the people and communities for which they are helping to develop uniquely tailored solutions. Every team works with a dedicated faculty mentor and business advisory board that help the students achieve the highest level of creativity and excellence in their work.

In Malaysia, we have chapters in 32 university campuses, with almost 2,900 student participations. Below is the distinguished members of our primary governing body, which includes senior leaders from a diverse range of industries and companies that support Enactus Malaysia.

YBhg Dato’ Sri Amrin Awaluddin, Group Managing Director, Media Prima Berhad
YBhg. Datuk Johan Idris, Managing Partner, KPMG in Malaysia
Mr. Ruben Emir Gnanalingam Abdullah, CEO, Westports Malaysia

Last year, Enactus teams worldwide implemented more than 6,000 individual projects that helped about two and a half-million people. For example in Enactus Malaysia, Enactus Universiti Tenaga Nasional, Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah Campus (UNITEN KSHAS) helped created 70 beekeepers in 6 villages in Pulau Tioman, and 110 beekeepers in Kiulu, Tamparuli, Sabah. Through this effort that aimed at elevating the socio-economic level of communities, we have seen the average household income of each beekeeper has increased from RM480 to RM1,600, and production increased from 50 bee boxes to 1,816 bee boxes in the span of 4 years.

The quality and impact of the students’ projects are then assessed through a series of regional and national competitions, which are judged by leading executives. The top team from every country gets invited to showcase their projects on a global stage at the Enactus World Cup.

What makes the whole process so compelling is the way in which Enactus students are able to make a tangible difference today, while at the same time enhancing their own entrepreneurial talents and developing into socially-responsible leaders.

The companies that support Enactus find it to be a tremendous win/win proposition. They view their contribution as an investment that is generating a long-term, sustainable benefit for millions of people and shaping a future generation of leaders, while at the same time providing very practical opportunities associated with being a part of the Enactus community… such as the chance to network with potential customers and business partners, to creating meaningful engagement experiences for their employees, to getting access to an amazing talent pool.

So, when asked am I happy with what I do? My answer (often comes out of my mouth in lightning speed) is YES! Working for a cause, with a sense of purpose, who ain’t?

For more info on what Enactus is all about, here is where you can find us *wink!* or better still, just call me! Hehe… |

DADIH ICE-CREAM! ‘Sinless’ dessert!

dadih, dadih ice-cream, dessert, pencuci mulut, zarfadias
I’m pretty sure most of us know what is dadih. I’ve known dadih since my toddler days because my uncle worked in Pejabat Haiwan, or better known now as Department of Veterinary Services in Penang. They made the best dadih ever! From fresh milk, of course!

Now after 30 years, I still love dadih, and in 2009, my beloved nephew started producing his own dadih ice-cream. Yes! Dadih + Ice-Cream = Dadih Ice-Cream! From a humble kitchen in Batu Pahat, to another humble production house in Alor Setar, now it has grown into a production plant and supply chain hub back in our kampung backyard.

And he does have a stockist in Klang Valley – Zarfadias Dadih Ice-Cream operating from a lovely kitchen in Cheras!

This Dadih Ice-Cream comes in ready-to-eat form and premix powder for those who love to DIY. How to DIY? It is super easy, quick and practically fool proof. The taste? Nyum… nyum… nyum… I literally close my eyes with every bite… so what do you think? Hehe… *wink!*

Now that I've made my case for the merits of this lovely dessert, let's move on and talk about how luscious it is, how perfectly creamy, in a way that belies its utter simplicity. And let me walk you through making Zarfadias dadih ice-cream DIY, step by step.

To Cook
Step 1 : Boil water (how much water depends on how much premix powder you use)
Step 2 : Pour in the premix powder
Step 3 : Boil the mixture again

To Eat
Step 4 : Pour the mixture into any bowl you like
Step 5 : Let it cool down / chilled
Step 6 : Dig in!

Super easy, kan?

I made dadih ice-cream numerous times at home, and insisted to my friends that it was a piece of cake to make. No, actually — easier than cake. Hahaha… My friends went home, tried DIY and reported back, wide-eyed, that they couldn't believe how easy and quick it was. I find that's usually the case with Zarfadias Dadih Ice-Cream DIY premix, it's actually easier than making Jell-O out of a box.

There I go again about how easy this is. Let's get back to how it tastes, shall we?

Dadih is a very basic pudding that is made of creamy dairy thickened with edible gelatine. You can eat it straight out of a cup, but it can also be unmolded onto a plate and drizzled with sweet sauce and garnished with fruit, just like panna cotta. A bite of dadih, especially dadih ice-cream is remarkably creamy, melting in the mouth without a trace of grittiness or lumps.

1. Vanilla (Original)
2. Chocolate
3. Mango
4. Strawberry
5. Blueberry

Other flavors are available upon request, subject to R&D result from the production kitchen *wink!*

I shouldn’t go on and on about how good it tastes and how easy it is to make. Try it for yourself.

THE HUMBLE CHEF: Proudly serves delicious meals at 'student price'

I have always wanted to write about this particular restaurant, THE HUMBLE CHEF, since the first time I went there last Ramadhan but never managed to find time until today. I know.... a lot of people have been writing about this restaurant... oh well... The Humble Chef is a no stranger to students and expatriates surrounding Pusat Bandar Damansara as a popular food truck serving cheap pastas which has now expanded into a cafe, but somehow it didn't hit me that this restaurant is originated from that food truck.

So, here goes.

My colleagues and I were working till late one fine evening last Ramadhan that we didn't realize it was almost time for buka puasa already. Half an hour to buka puasa and we didn't want to berbuka at the mamak nearby, so a genius colleague of mine suggested The Humble Chef. He said this restaurant serves RM5 spaghetti, and I was like "Yeah right!" coz it sounded so surreal. Where can we get a decent spaghetti at that price, kan? My brain was saying there must be hidden charges or I might later find super fine print somewhere. He quickly called his friend to reserve a table (little I knew then that his friend was actually the owner himself... hihi...). Lucky us, even when the restaurant is typically full house on a weeknight whatsmore buka puasa time, we got ourselves a table reserved!
My first impression upon entering the place - it is pretty cool, hipster, interesting deco with surrounded by art pieces - simple yet tasteful. We marched to the counter coz we passed buka puasa time already. (Customers to order at the counter and make payment upon ordering, just like a typical fast food restaurants, only they are not one). The queue was fast moving, and when it's my turn, I understood why. The menu choices are pretty limited but very suitable for indecisive people like me who usually take hours to decide on what to eat *wink*!
My colleague was right. The price was jaw dropping! RM5 for a decent plate of yummy pasta! I was imagining bringing my kids here and getting them to splurge on their all-time favorite spaghetti carbonara without having to worry if the bill will burn big holes in my wallet. I'm a happy mother! *wink again!* And oh! They have different style of cooking so just choose any that suits your taste bud.

Okay... a little bit more about The Humble Chef (apart from what I've shared above). It is owned by a friendly chap, Chef Rossman, a Western and pastry chef who worked for a few restaurants in Germany before starting up a food truck serving cheap pastas in Pusat Bandar Damansara. I think his main target audience was students surrounding the area, but it grew up to people outside of Pusat Bandar Damansara, especially late night dwellers who like to dine outdoor.

The restaurant was opened in 2012 as a response to escalating demand from his food truck regulars. Well... a wise man once said "If your food is good, customers will follow you wherever you go" and his restaurant is usually filled with regulars, only now they're enjoying the same good tasting pasta in the comfort of air-conditioned room surrounded by interesting art pieces. And the best part is... you still get it at the same food-truck-price! Yeay!
I was told that The Humble Chef will soon spread its wings to Serdang. I could already visualize the success of good marketing strategy among students will be repeated. Chaiyok!

Enough said... I will definitely go there again. Not just for the food, but also for the friendship. Who wants to join the wagon? Let's!
