after 2 nights in the disneyland hotel, we were finally out of there and make our way to kowloon area.

ImageImage

we stayed at sheraton hotel, the rooms were huge and with the harbor view. it was great. ( of course the rooms aren’t cheap!)

Image

Image

we had this half day city tour provided by the tour agency, which i was quite surprised that they were able to cover a few places(victoria peak, aberdeen, boat ride, visit some temple and had lunch!!) within the span of 4hrs.amazing.

well! for dinner, i decided to bring them to lamma island for seafood. we found out that rainbow restaurant provides free ferry shuttle to and fro lamma island and the hotel staff was kind enough to help us with the booking and stuff, we just have to walk to the ferry terminal and enjoy the ride. it took almost 40mins ferry ride to reach the island, i must say the food was really good. it is up to u to decide if it is worth 40mins travel time to have a good seafood meal.( the price is not v cheap. we paid almost 400 sgd for 9 of us but of course if it is to compare to the seafood prices in singapore, it is consider much cheaper there based on the kind of food we ordered) personally, i don’t mind traveling there to have a good meal. 🙂

Recently, i been doing a lot of readings on food and nutrition. i find some of the topics in these books are very interesting, and i would like to share them with u all. 

From the book : The  beauty detox solution.

in the first chapter of the book, it talks about how our body is designed and how it affects our diet. According to the author, our human body (generic make up) is very similar to that of primates: monkeys, chimps and gorillas. We shared 99.4% of our DNA in common with Chimpanzees.

Look at our hands,fingers, nails and teeth are just like the chimps. in particular to the teeth, are flattened like the chimps(except the front canines) , which can be used to open up the harder shells of some fruits and our back molars are appropriate for grinding plants for easy digestion.

Carnivorous animals (e.g tiger) on the other hand have short inflexible “fingers”, sharp fangs for hunting and eating raw meat and claws for ripping into the fresh of their prey.But our hands, teeth and bodies are simply not designed for hunting and consuming meat ,we have to use tools, weapons and utensils instead.

okay.. so basically we look different from carnivorous animals,and it turns out that our digestive tract is built differently too. For example, our human liver has a low tolerance for uric acid, a by-product when digesting animals protein.in contrast, the liver of the carnivorous tiger contains uricase which is an enzyme used to break down uric acid. This enzyme gives the tiger’s liver 15 times the capacity to break down uric acid than a human liver.

And not only that, our human intestine is extremely complex and at around 13 feet (just like gorillas). it is designed to be long so that there is adequate time to absorb the minerals and nutrients of fruits and plant matter whereas the tiger has a short intestines so that it can quickly get rid of the acidic waster matter that is the by-product of animal proteins.

so what does all this mean to our diet?? The gorilla is a natural vegetarian with 86% of its diet consists of green leaves, shoots and stems. the gorilla gets all its protein, vitamins and minerals from its plant based diet and is in fact the strongest animal on earth, pound for pound.so what happens when we have the biological make up of a gorilla but we eat like a tiger??—> i find this really makes sense when i was reading this chapter. 

THE KEY TO BEING HEALTHIEST, MORE BEAUTIFUL IS EATING THE WAY YOUR BODY WAS DESIGNED TO EAT!!

and like other strong mammals on earth- the elephant, wild horse, buffalo are all plant eaters.THE STRONGEST ANIMALS ON EARTH ARE ALL VEGETARIANS.These gigantic animals all gets their proteins from amino acids- the building blocks of proteins in plants. i find this really a solid and convincing proof.

what do you think? it is not about cutting meat out of your diet totally, maybe reducing the quantity is good enough. 🙂 maybe what our body needs is just fruits and vegetables to stay young and healthy, and not mask, moisturizers, cleansers.

hopefully one day i can still look great without putting on make up!!! lol

This year i was lucky enough to be around for 6days during the cny period. finally, i was able to take a break from work and spent some time with my loved ones in Singapore. But time seems to pass so quickly that cny is over in a blink of an eye. 😦

i was kind of relieved that i did not overly indulged with the cny goodies (ermmm…because baby boy keep reminding me how fattening these goodies are!! make me feel so guilty when i ate some.haha)

but nevertheless, i enjoyed the break. hope you guys’ celebrations were fantastic as well!

it is always kind of difficult for me to find some clothes that is suitable for me to wear during cny, because traditionally we are not suppose to wear black.it always seems to be the case where the brighter color u put on the better it is….. but i always feel that i only look good in black or dark colors, so i always find it a hassle to go hunt for my cry clothes.

but thank god, i managed to get this dress from urban outfitters that fits me and is not in BLACK. 🙂

Real Food is yet another great Vegetarian restaurant i visited recently. ( the only Vegan place that baby boy said he don’t mind going back there for dinner again!!!) They have two outlets currently but the one i visited is located at killiney Road.

Image

i love how they have different sections for different things. there is a book corner, a grocery section and of course the dining area.

Image

the grocery section has got some pretty interesting healthy living stuff, i bought some vegetable stock from there and will definitely go back there for more vegan ingredients.

Image

Image

the mushroom pasta is a bit dry though.

the pizza is superb! the boy claimed that it is one of the best pizza he ever had. And the best thing is you get to choose whatever topping you want to add on your pizza, which is good for me because i don’t really eat allllllll kind of veg.hehe
