Quick update: If you don’t already know, I’m currently in Central Coast of New South Wales, North of Sydney, Woy woy – this little town/ suburb of Aussie.
I am teaching yoga here for 2ish months at Happy hot yoga! As I mentioned previously that I’ve left my job in Citi and decided to go back to chasing my passion.
Anyways, few weeks ago when I was still in Sg, I went trekking with a few of my Citi friends… Gosh, I realised I was really quite unfit because it was so tiring -_- (Yoga classes were not as tough for me since it was already considered a routine)
Think we took around 3ish hours to complete the whole thing… It was my SECOND time there and it’s still tiring. Hahaha, I was saying that I’d only do this like once every 2 years?? But maybe I should change my mind and do it more frequently?
And OMG, there were MONKEYS. I am not at all surprised but I was really scared. They started to enter the bridge and after some photos I zoomed forward all the way LOL. Really damn scared of them because they are so aggressive 🙁
^ Just me doing my yoga again, hehe
It was really a great workout to do with friends!! But I was really tired out probably BECAUSE…
Firstly, I only had 3 hours of sleep- because I partied the night before and secondly, I went to work for 3 hours before this.
Note to self and word of advice for all:
- MUST have enough rest!! (If confident enough/ have stamina, can take longer route)
- CARRY a huge bottle of water- with ICE if you are carrying a hydroflask!
- BRING some snacks along, you’ll need it some times.. but keep it well and don’t feed the monkeys (Because they may get aggressive too)
- WEAR SHOES and comfy clothes!
- APPLY sunscreen to protect your skin and have a portable fan if you can’t stand being too hot
Sidenote… I am freezing cold here it’s currently 10 dc T_T
Thank you and blog soon! x
Special thanks to my fellow yogi friend / awesome photographer Nicholas (@nknds on instagram) for the amazing photos 🙂
Hello there! Sorry to be away for quite sometime.. Anyway!
Gonna share something with you guys, whereby you CAN receive incentives from keeping yourself fit.
What?! YES, and this could happen if you own a Fitbit/ Jawbone tracker (Soon-to-be Striiv as well) on Rewalkz.me!!
I am humbled to be chosen to be one of Rewalkz.me’s Brand ambassador, to share my experience with my fitbit tracker including how integrating a fitness tracker (a Fitbit for my case) changes my lifestyle and daily activities as well as how it keeps me fit!
Rewalkz.me is a wellness platform, and serves a purpose to reward users of Fitbit/ jawbone trackers where they participate in challenges through clocking in the highest number of steps based on various challenges! These challenges are consistently being rolled out each week and it is really exciting because what’s better than getting in shape and being rewarded for doing so? 😉
So it looks roughly like this ^
This tracker calculates the daily steps that I take and devises the amount of calories I burn!
I was curious to find out if this device could actually calculate any movement/ steps I take while doing yoga and surprisingly, yes. But personally, I’m pretty much an active person, I enjoy walking and indeed, I walk a lot.. so it was not a big problem for me to clock-in a minimum of 10,000 steps a day even if my yoga practice does not calculate my steps (as poses may not require moving around the mat but just staying put at a spot). I also try to go for runs at least once every week, thus, it helped me see how the fitbit tracker works better. I was able to see that the calories I burnt was at its peak when I was out running.
This tracker got me more aware of the activities that I do, because it somehow served as a motivation to me as I would want to hit the daily goal of 10,000 steps daily. Am glad I reach that goal on most days!

Thank you for all your kind words guys. And all the support you guys showed (e.g. sharing it on FB etc.) It’s the little things that makes me fuzzy wuzzy inside, I’m deeply humbled 🙂 even though it isn’t a very big deal but I’m thankful, it’s a mini milestone!

One quick note/ the journey was never easy but the key is to never give up. Even til today I will not deny and say that that I’m not struggling with other voices in my head from time to time. But also am glad to say most of the time I successfully drown those voices and always always try my best to be comfortable in my own skin. As the saying goes Beauty is subjective. We can’t control what others think or see but we can control our own thoughts and views. It’s very important because it lays the foundation for us to FEEL about ourselves.
Confidence often carries beauty along. (But of course excessive/ over-confidence can kill it all.)
And actually, all we can do best is to be ourselves. In life, there should be no room for pretence because we can never find true happiness right there- even if we felt so, it could most probably be delusional.
I’m still working on way too many things and is often impatient and wants to get many things done at one time which is technically impossible -_-
So I really wish I can take a step back and relax a little, take one step at a time. Life is after all, a special element that we got to enjoy.
Ending of with a less saturated photo 😀
Gtg study now.
