A Third of Ramadhan Gone…

Well what do you know??? A third of Ramadhan has gone just like that. Kinda fast if we were to think back. A minor sign that Yaumul Qiyamah (Day of Judgement) is looming perhaps??? Could be, as time seems to fly too fast for one’s reckoning each year. I hope now that the month is into its second gear, our body system would have been accustomed to waking up early and having to function without food and drinks in the day.

Speaking of body system, I read with interest some of your comments about my weight in the last entry. I reckon that some of you thought I lost 5kg during the first week of Ramadhan, judging by the way you typed. Let me go on record once again to say that the 5kg lost was within a 5-weeks time frame, about a month before Ramadhan when I first started my fitness regime. What sped up the process of losing the weight was Ramadhan, which I am extremely thankful for. So if you were to look at it, I only lost about 2.5-3kg during that first week of Ramadhan. I think I speak based on the last entry but as of now, I am happy to add I’ve lost another kilo so that makes it a grand total of 6kg in 5 and a half weeks time frame. So hope my explaination dispels the notion that I lost 5kg in one week. That is extremely unhealthy in fitness standards and could be detrimental to the body system.

Since we’re at the subject of losing weight, I think I did not add the fact that I am actually being aided by the Herbal Diet pill that is being promoted extensively on radio. Though the promotion says we can eat as per normal with it, in reality, we have to back it up with our own methods to lose weight like eating in lesser proportions and exercising. There is no short cut to losing weight. I am fortunate I have a goal to meet, which is driving me on. Thanks to the progress I’ve made, I will be interviewed on radio sometime next week I think, to speak about how the pill had helped me in losing weight. Basically what I will say is what I’ve said in this paragraph, that there is no easy way out unless one is prepared to spend thousands and go for liposuction.

On one of my previous entries, I noted how sad I was to see different sets of friends at odds with one another. I’m pleased to say that one set has reconciled through a chance meeting. Though it might take some time to regain trust on the other party after what had happened, taking steps to building the bridge again is an extremely noble thing to do, in the spirit of brotherhood and friendship. For that, I thank God for instilling compassion and forgiveness in us, to accept mistakes made and to work on the relationship and return to what we used to be…

10 days have passed, onto the 11th day and I still have not set foot at Geylang Serai. This is a record of sorts, one which I’ve never set before in past years. At the rate I’m going I think I will only set foot much, much later. If earlier, then perhaps it would be to run errands for my mum. Going there is an eyesore really seeing teenagers and those in the 20-35 age group in tight clothings, tattoos etc. I feel sad for the community really cos it does not seem to be progressing for the better. *sigh*

However, I feel like going over to Woodlands later today to savour the things in store at the Northern Bazaar. That’s just a plan though, cos I might have last minute things that might crop up later. Last week on my way to Jurong via the North-South MRT line, I saw the big tentage next to Causeway Point and I thought it looked bigger than previous years’ in terms of space. My ultimate vice would be the kebabs of course…

Right, not much to say really as nothing eventful has happened over the past week. Have a great weekend!!!

  1. i have not set foot to bazaar yet and seems lyke i don think i would tau. argh, the crowd, the crowd makes me insane. tak rela.

    that, and, that part when i cried so badly when nuar sang, u were there too! in 98, konsert salam mesra. aah you were there. you were. but thank god u didnt see me with buruk face with tears.

  2. eleh…ni tak aci ah! berapa banyak pasukan yang mu sokong? sumernya pemain man utd. kiter pun sokong man utd tapi takkan lah sumer negara nak sokong :p

    takpe, menang ke kalah ke, ballack ke, dahan ke…suka kiter ah. nak sokong Germany jugak! *stomps feet in mock display*

    selamat posa, awak! muahahahaha…

  3. Salamz, Sir PM.

    Your discipline is amazing but the pound-shed tally is astonishing.Truly.

    Granted, its supplement-aided.Granted, it’s over a 5-week time frame. Yet if you must know, I was told by a physical trainer that it’s more difficult for a man to lose weight as they’re made of more muscle and their flesh is tougher.

    So, yes, I think it’s almost phenomenal. I almost thought of suggesting PowerYoga as it helped me lose 11kilos in 3mths with toned limbs and all.But yoga’s too girly for you macho types.My husband is still staying away from the yoga mat although I’ve been trying to convince him for yonks now. Yes..yes…boys prefer sweat. 🙂

    Anyway,besides the weight-loss regime, I hope the rest of your wedding plans are well on track.

    And above all, I hope this Ramadhan brings you blessings aplenty and bondings of many with your loved ones :-


    Ramadhan Kareem,InsyaAllah!
