Vegan diet: Day 8

Water fast: Day 5

Day 1 & 2      Day 3 & 4


Day 5

I’ve came to understand the importance of blocking out time for ‘abnormal’ activities such as a fast, because you stand out like a sore thumb, especially during mealtimes. Eating big meals and drinking a beer or two seems like the social standards expected out of a gathering (I loved that lifestyle). Okay, maybe beers are not really necessary.

The surprise I get from people when I tell them ‘I am not eating because I am on a fast’ could be due to that the idea of fasting on a regular basis for non-religious or weight loss reasons is not that popular in Singapore. So my advice is: during the process of fasting try your best to stay out of meetings/ gatherings so you can focus on what’s most important at hand, without having to put yourself through difficult situations to prove or justify yourself. Sometime all it matters is the result, which would eventually influence and change the mindset of others around you. It’s all about standing your ground, and being consistent. One must lead by example. 

Back to my progress, I have been adapting well to the hunger pangs and yet I know my body is ready to take in more solid food.  So towards the end of the day, I added some biscuit to my honey water and tonic soup routine. The biscuits were from Ikea and were a tad too sweet and creamy for my liking. The taste of fat and sugar puts me off quite a bit. I guess my taste buds probably needs more time to adjust.

Hence, my second piece of advice is: ONLY eat digestive biscuits as the transitional solid food if you prefer biscuits, of course you can eat other things such as fruits and vegetables, as long as they are not too hard or difficult to digest.

Day 6

I must confess, I broke my vegan diet today (day 9) in total oblivion. I have forgotten completely about my concurrently running fasting  and vegan diet. I was too caught up with the sense of achievement from completing the first part of the fast that I got carried away. However I must say I didn’t break it because I gave in to temptations, and I ate only a few pieces of chicken to ease into a more varied diet ( or at least that’s what I thought I was doing).

Lastly, I decided that day 6 shall be the official ending of this honey water fast, just one day ahead of time. I felt much better and didn’t notice a major dip in energy level. I shall post another overview later on in my blog to conclude this exercise and maybe compare it with my previous detox experience called Dr. Oz’s 36 hours detox programme.

Shall update again,

With Love,



The heart is rather restless lately..with thoughts running endless through my mind..uncertain of its direction. Uncertain of myself. 

Some clarity needed desperately.

After flipping through all my posts on this random day, I am fascinated by all the memories they bring back after so long.

And it makes me wanna do it more often again. To record, keep sake and, most importantly, tell a story about myself.



We stumble and fumble over many things before finally reaching our true goals. No matter how difficult it is, there are things we need to let go and people we need to forget. There are happy things and there are sad things, nothing is perfect and it’s never a smooth path ahead for life without challenges is life not worth living. Most importantly, we have to let go of the bad things to welcome the good, even if it hurts much.

I know I am so lost right now, but I know I am not alone in this. I just need to be a little stronger and a bit of patience.

Shall ride this through.

For the first time in a long while, I am feeling pretty proud of what I have achieved for making the extra effort. Maybe I am a bit of a perfectionist. But what happened on Friday made me happy. I hope this feeling will last. And I wanna keep pace and achieve more!

Btw Friday was the night that I broke my going-home-late-from-work record. Stepping out of office at 320am is hopefully not gonna happen again in a long long long long long time. However, I was happy. Not ‘workaholic-ishly’ happy but just feeling pretty warm inside from before. And having to evade traffic police at their temporary checkpoint by ducking ourselves under was quite exciting, since we have a bit of overloading problem. (I didn’t just write this out > <”) It’s all about the experience isn’t it.

Moving on to some more serious stuff…Half a year left for 2011, plus or minus.

I have 3 license to get hopefully…

1. Driving (At least I bought a 3 years ago. Oh well..)

2. Advanced Diving (I can go into the water now Mom! Don’t listen to those monks who cheated your $$$!)

3. FA (50% done)

and there are some near goals to achieve with help. But just a small reminder to self.

One thing at a time.

..& Smile more  🙂

Have you found what you are looking for? Or are you looking hard enough at it?

Are you treating life well instead of life treating you well?

One thing I am absolutely sure is that life doesn’t give a damn about you. You are the only one you can count on to fight for what’s yours and what you deserve.

And always remember, time is slowly ticking away, like it or not.


We are all wannabes, but in a good way.
