  1. You are so funny today! Your post is hilarious to tickle my ribs esp the billions of money for me to decide!!! I could write 1001 ways.

    Whatever you just mentioned about power naps, green tea overdose and Okra-phobia are all opposites from me! Anay doesn't snooze 30 minutes after face wash, loves thick concentrated green tea and super love OKRA!!! Give me OKRA any time. I eat them raw, boiled or even fried with sambal. Yums!

    1. hehehe, there is however one exception.. i think the green tea desserts only applies to those in Malaysia.. i have tried those green tea desserts in Japan and they are so nice to eat, just nice amount of green tea used.. of course, that includes the very nice Kit Kat green tea wafers~~ :p

    2. Are green tea desserts supposed to be sweet or bitter? Because green tea itself is bitter

      Delete
    3. Yeap, green tea itself is bitter. Even in making sweets or dessert only use a small portion. Do not overdose it. Or else...jeng jeng...I don't have to explain further.

    4. Aha! This Super Thambee is super weird! Doesn't drink Green Tea but eats Kit Kat Green Tea pula. You have funny tongue and intestines. I got your hint la...

  2. The power of power nap, I believe. That's what Einstein used to take and how his famous theory was born.

    I have a friend who uses three alarm clocks to wake her up in the morning.

    2. You've got it! Memory can be improved or rather trying to get something stuck in the mind is the power of association, i.e., associate the fact/info with something familiar that every time you think of the latter, you will remember the former.

      Another way is to repeat the action for at least 21 times and it will be entrenched into memory - according to a memory guru. Like they say 'practice makes perfect'. I could go on with examples, but don't want to bore you. :D

    3. Okra, no doubt every food has its benefits, okra included but a study has warned against eating excessive okra. It has something that affects MEN because too much of okra can make men become effeminate. But then again the word is 'excessive' to give that effect.

  3. I saw this publish at midnight before I went to bed, hahaha!! But didn't comment because I was too tired, and so now here I am.

    A Actually I did the same thing too but for me I won't still wake up on exact same time. As the 30minutes for me is a warning for me, so I can take the last 30 minutes to sleep, after that I serious got to wake up already.

    For me I guess I can't do something like this because once I'm done I will put the makeup on so with the makeup on, I can't go back to bed, not good to sleep with makeup on, right? (difference between male and female, yah!)

  4. B I like to have green tea too, as according to many youtuber they always like to say green tea is one of the drink good for health. I used to drink a lot while I was in US, but here I can't find back the taste that I really like. I've tried a few in the market but don't know after I had them for few days I would start coughing, don't know is that too cold for my body or what? So in the end I had nothing, just drink back plain water is fine, sigh!

  5. C I can't tell exactly correct and fast in English la, but in Mandarin, it's already like printed in my mind already.

  6. D Gimme five, I also don't like to eat this. Even though many tell me that this's a very healthy food but I still don't like it...I only would eat it, if I don't have a choice when somebody grab and put in my bowl or plate so I got to force myself to eat it. Guess it's better if it has cut into pieces, but with the whole batang, I also don't like the hairy thing...I always said the skin is 毛城城 one very "deli"

    1. That' s call weird meh. I set my alarm one hour earlier lor. See who is more weird? Everyone has their own habit. For myself, why set my alarm an hour earlier. So I can slowly wake up my lil Hebe. So this alarm is set every Monday to Saturday. Besides this another reason I set an hour earlier also is my habit. I don't like rushing to work. I don't like to do last minute thing. I use this one hour to adjust myself to slowly wake up. Slowly cuddling on my bed just a for a while before my real time to get up. I don't think everyone can get up will straight away wake up once their alarm ring. Not many can do that. Moreover... set alarm earlier also discipline ourself to get ready all the time and not be late. Hahaha...

    2. High 5 Mr. Sherman. Green tea is my favourite drink. Same again like you no matter it is hot or cold. I like it so much. I have a packet of green tea with brown rice. Some sort like Sakae Sushi one. Hubby and I like green tea. Previous visit to Cameron. We bought each of us a pack of green tea from Boh Tea Plantation shop. Green tea really helps to detox and cleansed only if drink hot green tea rather than cold one. Pokka green tea I likes to drink too. If go Japan surely must drink green tea. Indeed their Japanese green tea always taste mush better and fragrant.

      I adore hot Starbucks green tea latte. Kinda sweet and I always request for less sweet one. I miss Japan's green tea ice cream leh.. totemo oyishii desyou! Smooth, milky and fragrant. Don't compare those local ones. If you found green tea swiss roll with azuka-redbeans. Sedap also. Green tea cheesecake is also another great combination of flavor and texture. Yumz yumz.

    3. Wait ya. Green tea layered cake with Azuka fresh cream is my next cake target. Will see how successful it is ya.

    4. Rainbow colors eh. Ya good that you reminded us how to say it out in sequence. Schooling time teacher got taught before. The seven colors are Red,orange,yellow,green,blue,indigo and violet. Hmm let me think of it ya...
      Red for and pao, orange for orange lor, yellow for lemon, green for green tea, blue for sky, indigo for lavender and violet for dragon fruit leh. Heard of rainbow layered cake before? I think many of you have seen in FB and other places. Tall cake with 7 layers of them. Very easy to bake. The tricky part is when you're trying to get the vibrant colors of the rainbow. I would like to make one but when I consider the amount of artificial food coloring, i make a pause to this cake. I also got plan to blend fresh fruits and vege juice to make this cake. Yes is better but the amount of time to prepare all this is not easy. Let's see how near is the colour to the fruits n vege I thought of
      Red - rasberries
      Orange - carrot will be more alike
      Yellow - sweet corn
      Green - screwpine leaf/daun pandan
      Blue - How we called the blue flower?
      Indigo - bluberries
      Violet - it can use Ribena, dragon fruit and also beetroots can ar.

    5. Okra I like to eat too. It's hairy and slimy that makes okra so nutritious. Lol. Heard of okra that dip overnight in a full glass of water? That can control a diabetic. I live to eat steam okra with soy sauce or even it taste better with dried shrimp chilie paste. Okra is cook as adfitional vege that goes very well with fish curry. Even okra in tom yam fish soup. Maybe it can be fried like tempura. I also know that Indian likes to cook okra as their dishes.

    7. Eh from all the topics then suddenly seen this 2.6billion looks so familiar but how am I gonna use it if I have this kind of money? 2.6 billion is far too much lor. But for those who realy needs that kind of money I'm sure they will be very appreciate and feel joyful if that 2.6billion pass to them. On the other hand, oneself can be very greedy with this 2.6billion. Then can I used to buy an no man Island or even buy a small country? Can ar? I wish to stay in Japan or New Zealand. Move there and my kids will have better education and living style. It's true, if hubby and I have this huge sum money. Many things we can do leh.

    8. Continue from Picture A, good to practice to set the alarm early. Like this few days, I have been wake up early and help my MIL in the kitchen. So far I still feel refreshing as it has been my usual way to stay awake early.

  14. Picture A: This is indeed a very weird habit and it never would be liked by Yannie. Yannie is a lazy bum, she will sleep till the very last minute only wake up to wash and change.

  25. Picture A

    Before I read the contents, I was actually looking at the clocks image which is so artistic! And, I thought you are posting something that dealt with arts...muhahahaha... That was really s nice pix and tells some stories, probably about time.

    Alamak... how can you wake up and wash up and dozed off again? Can sleep meh like that? Whenever you have washed up and pee, I am sure you will be wide-awake. hahaha.... That's a bit strange to me. And how about the bad breath that came back after the 30 mins nap?

    As for me, even if I am very sleepy, I don't think I can sleep again after washing up. I will be very fresh and probably proceed to take a bath and go for my cup of kopi. I may take a nap hours later, maybe after lunch especially if I am not working.

    Having heard what you said, I knew there are a lot of folks who set their alarm clock 1 hour or 30 mins earlier and snooze till its wake up time.

    Well, different people have different habits la and most importantly, it keep you awake. :)

    I also love green tea and usually make a big cup filled with two tea bags in hot water. And, I waited for it to cool down while working. I find drinking green tea or any other chinese teas actually help awakens my senses and calm me down. Compared with coffee, it awakes me but also stimulates me. In green tea and any other chinese tea, It actually calm my senses and I feel more at ease and relax, just like one who just finished meditating like that.

    However, I don't like those fruit teas or angmoh teas, other than the typical english breakfast tea and earl grey tea. I find those flavour teas taste kinda different without sweetness, for example, strawberry or rose tea. Anyway, I beginning to like some of them like Lavender tea. hahaha.. I think you needed to drink more to enjoy it.

    I also don't quite like green tea products though I started to appreciate green tea ice-cream. But the green tea cakes and moon cakes really taste kinda weird to me. Probably, it takes time to appreciate it like the Japanese.

    For now, it will be a nice cup of hot green tea for me , with my ramen or sushi. Oh, I also dislikes cold green tea unless I am very thirsty.

    Hmmm... this is really a random pictures post it seems! And, I have been waiting for your post since Mon and that how I lost the FC today...*sob* ...

    Rainbow colours...that's interesting. Frankly I cannot remember all the seven colours, not to mention the sequence but this renaming of colours seems a psychology test.

    Red - It's more of something vibrant to me, associate with liveliness. Anything red is lively and power to me and makes one looks alive. Oh well, I always associate red with Manchester United, of course! And, oh..cherries!

    Orange - I will always associate Orange with the Holland football team , called the Oranje Army...lol. And, Vitamin C.

    Yellow - It's lemon to me as well as bananas.

    Green - I like green since I was a kid, thus I associate it with my childhood. Now, I like all types of colours and seldom see me wear green. But green is also nature to me. It's peaceful and calm. Green tea?

    Blue - Blue is jeans to me and full stop!

    Lavender - Instead of that aromatherapy plant, it's more of a grape bubble gum to me...muahahhhaha

    eh..what's this last colour , light purple? More to remind me of my stabilo colour pencils .... they have this colour back then in a small 12 pencils box.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Picture D

    That was my favourite veggie. I love it boiled and then dipped it in belacan and voila... it's so delicious! Or, get those yong tau foo with some fish meat inside and dip in the red chilli sauce. It's heaven! I love okra and can have many pieces of it.

    Errr.. I heard a rumour that eating okra can help improve semen production in males..hahahha... probably its due to its slimy liquid. Well, I don't buy this but I still love eating it.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Picture E

    Muahahahahaha... in the first place, who would want to give anyone such a big amount of sum? The giver must be one big Id*ot if there's one... muahaahaha ..I don't think this will happened to me unless I strike it through lotteries but that's still requires a small investment.

    Errr.. too many zeroes will read as billions? Probably that's a new 'word' here now. hahaha...

    Happy Chinese New year, SK!

  30. A misc post indeed with so many different topics together. If I do like you, prepare and then go back to sleep, I don't think I will wake up after that to go to work, most likely sleep until noon and get fired. Do you like to eat sambal and sweet, sweet desserts? If yes, then you do like strong taste but just not strong green tea taste. No, I can't list the rainbow colour in order quickly. Slowly yes. You must be related to princess and the pea. She can feel the pea underneath so many layers of mattresses and you can feel the very tiny hairs on the okra. Lastly no need to say because no one is going to donate that amount to me even in my dreams.

    2. B : This is something we have in common. I like drinking green tea but if you ask me to eat green tea ice cream, I will say no thank you. Can I have chocolate? hee..hee... So I stay far far away from green tea cakes etc even though I love the green color.

  44. I can understand okra, but... washing up and then go back to sleep is really something I cannot wrap my head around with! If I do that, it would only render my washing up useless @.@ ..

    If I get 2.6 billion, I already migrate to US or Australia I think, I already give up with the monkey politicians from both sides... :/

  45. Hello SK!
    Gong Hei Fatt Choy! What a cute Doraemon there, hehe!

    Huh? You can go back to sleep after wash up?? For 30 minutes only? Geng wo! No matter how tired I am I will not fall asleep within 30 minutes one lo! Erm ok la may be when I am very very tired and worn out.
    Anyway, I heard that this practice is good (setting alarm earlier), at least we don't have to rush and can take sweet time to settle.

    I also love green tea, but don't have the habits to drink it daily, got also is when I dine outside. Green tea is good but for the ladies, have to watch out a bit also cause it's very cooling, not so good for our inner organs.

    The colors thing... Ok, red I think about ang pao, orange is orange, yellow is banana, green is green apple, blue is my favorite MK handbag, purple is eggplant, violet is my son's t-shirt.... Hehehe!

    Okra, seldom hear people mention this name, usually we say ladies fingers, hehe. I love this wo, very healthy one ler! Just steam it then drizzle some soy sauce on top is good enough!

    The last picture, haih I have been waiting and waiting but too bad, nobody donate money to me also!! :((

  47. Photo #A - This Chinese New Year, I developed some new habits for the first time. I dozed off so often since i started testing the sleeping tablets and anti depressant pills which my wife took earlier. It made me groggy for days and that's when I had to get the power naps! Now I know exactly what power naps meant. Later on in Yogyakarta, I walked over 20,000 steps per day as timed by the watch and I craved for power naps the next 2 days. It was heavenly bliss to laze around the hotel.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Photo #B - I seldom come across people who disliked Green Tea. maybe it's because Thambee was born in the slums of Chennai and so used to drink the holy water from the Ganges River! I hope someday you will love this green tea as it is nice to sip while it is hot. You need to eat some sweet cakes like the way the Japanese folks would do while sipping and eating finger food. Just like we take teh tarek and munch Roti Tisu la....

    It is wonderful to note that the Green Tea has the richest anti oxidant qualities inside. I believe there is no other tea that contains so much cancer prevention supplements.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Photo #C - I think you have a very young heart with colourful minds. This is something new for me to ponder and I realised I have my own inner choice of colour references too. Mine would be different and in English of course. Here it goes:

    Chlly RED / YELLOW Lemon / GREEN Grass / BLUE Berry / INDIGO Indians / VIOLET Flowers!

    Among all the colours, my lucky one is RED and my favourite is BLUE!

    I have been thinking hard how to write a blog about the importance of colours in Feng Shui Science. It is so tough to bring good and logic examples.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Photo # D - I never knew how to eat much of OKRA when the Thais actually eat them almost raw with spicy hot sambal all the time. I tried them when I was younger in Thailand and my mum loved them. To cut my story short, I was being charmed once and the medium told me that my liver was weak. He told me to boil the OKRA everyday and just drink the water. Nowadays I read in websites that OKRA can be miracles and cure many diseases!! How wonderful. So Thambee must boil them to drink with honey for better taste lah!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Photo # E - If I get a whopping big sum of RM2.6 billion, Anay will call Thambee first and have a meeting. Anay will ask Thambee whether to return the money to the Saudi Prince or use the money to splurge! We go shopping at Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles, California where all the richest shoppers hang out. Then we cruise all the way to Norway and ski in the alps of Switzerland! We go buy HERMES bags and shoes to golek-golek everywhere in our Ferrari cars.

    Enough, enough, slaps my own face to wake up! I know it won;t ever happen lah to me. Back to work now!

  54. Good afternoon SK.

    So many clock in the photo geh. Cakap pasal apa? Wasted so much time with the dentist thingy. so damn sien. waste my time. is it talking about time management?

    what? purposely set the time early 30 minutes...then wake up then go back to sleep for another 30 minutes>? Gosh ...you are one of the kind la. Am not saying that you are weird but one of the kind here means that not many can do that .

    me for instance. If wake up already, it is very hard for me to fall back to sleep. In the end, might as well that I set the alarm clock or alarm handphone to the time that I want to wake up...or to around the time that I want to wake up.

    I would usually set it same as you...about half an hour early. But instead of your way, i would golek golek in bed before can really wake up. By then ...just nice timing to wake up lo.

    I can't take "power nap". J can la. He falls asleep easily/ Not like me. If I were to go back to sleep and woke up 30 minutes later, I would feel more tired and grumpy instead of feeling refreshed. I guess each one of us is different la

    1. Green tea.

      Most of the tea i also like. Not limited to green tea.

      It is good that you take to drinking green tea. How many cups you drink daily? Green tea have many health benefits. Not only that it can help to fight cancer but also heard from people in the gardening groups that it have some anti aging properties. Not sure whether true or not lah. Hmmm but see Japanese and old folks from China likes to drink green tea and the old folks seems to many are wrinkle free...maybe have some points the lo.

      when you mention green tea...first thing comes to mind is Japan. But actually it is originated from china leh. I have heard plenty about the famous Longjing . Have you tasted LongJing before? My ex-colleague love tea very much. He tasted before and said very smooth. LOL..our boss goes China for holiday we asked him bring us back Longjing...kena he scold...scold in a joking way la.

      I feel that green tea is also milder than the normal chinese tea especial the "Boh Lei". Too much chinese tea can cause gastric and not good for the liver although chinese tea also helps in cancer prevention.

      Hahaha....you are same like me la...but at least for you it is green tea dessert and for me it is durian dessert. Some green tea dessert is okay la for me. Can still eat la. Yes, sometimes they have an over powering "powder" taste. I dont like that. This happens usually in cakes or pastries. Ice cream okay la. That day Kaldip Birthday we ate in sukiya. The green tea ice cream was very bitter he said. I didnt taste coz was not feeling well. Maybe they put too much green tea powder into it la.

      well, at least in green tea dessert it does not have those chemical taste la like sometimes can taste from the durian dessert. Those were really fake leh. Cannot stomach. Mau kasi me ..the kasi me real durian please. LOL

      Subtle taste ah? Hmm....so what brand of green tea are you drinking now. From the leaves or sachets form? I sayang to buy the leaves form. Buy the sachets only. yeah...not good quality but hentam la. You know me la

      Wei.... i just discovered am color blind lo....The yellow color punya word i cannot read leh....scroll big big till the whole yellow filled my screen baru can read as Minions.

      One more unrelated thing hor....why change the template ah? Not a new month yet wor or are you following Lunar calendar , change every Chor Yat or 15th?

      Red ah...when comes to mind not chinese new year leh. More like when i see the color red i think of blood. Gory , right? Can not help it dont know why think of blood when i see the color red.

      Orange . yes i think of orange too but not mandarin orange. Hahaha ...at the time of writing this post still chinese new year..no wonder you are in the mood la of thinking chinese new year things.

      Yellow makes me think of banana and flowers. Yellow is such a happy color. Nah...not thinking of minions.

      green...GARDEN. My garden is full of green green weeds and my plants are turning brown. sobs sobs sobs...crazy weather . cant do much of gardening . shit gardening can be a full time job

      Blue. Boy. yes am typical aunty la. pink for girls , blue for boy. hahaha.... got knock into my head that blue is for boy since i was very young. no medicine to cure liao.

      Indigo....hahaha..this word will be extinct in another generation or so. Will be replaced by Lavender liao. Then student will ask cikgu what does the word Indigo means. Same goes for the Bahasa malaysia word for "Perang"(war/brown) Now nobody uses the word "perang" to describe brown color anymore.

      For me, Indigo reminds me of deepavali. Deepavali punya money wrapper are usually that color

      Violet. your friend TXH same like my god-sister wor. she also crazy about this color. when she was teens..most of her clothing have some sort of purple color. When i see this color , i think of my god-sister. Her daughter also loves purple . But now dont know still loves purple color or not la. Kids grow up and their taste changes ma.

    3. Okra/ ladies finger. yes i do eat them and planning to plant them too but no more space in my garden. if can get fresh okra is very good. Yeah there ate 1001 health benefit of eating okra. Recent one is cut ladies fingers to pieces like in the photo, then soak in the water overnight. Drink the "slime" in the morning. it is to control the blood sugar level.

      no joke leh. really works punya. I have a friend whose sugar level very high. We all advice him what food to take la. one lady teach him drink okra slime. 1 week later his sugar level gone down to an acceptable level.

      I guess you are still very young la. When you are older, you might be willing to drink this too leh. LOL

      ahem.... when you said when you first try eating ladies finger... how was it cooked? Was it raw and you makan like ulam? or was it rebus? or was it yong tau fu or fried sambal belacan?

      If fried sambal belacan shouldnt have slime and the "hair all layu liao mah. It feels like makan any ordinary kacang ..kacang panjang a french bean.

      oh well...guess will just have to accept there are somethings that can't be forced la. LOL... like me i do not like to eat rebung. very stinky to me but i can eat petai. weird me

    4. so many zero ah....gua mata empat sudah jadi mata lapan dei... what are you trying to do leh...LOL....

      if am given rm2.6Billion donation amount ah? What would I do? Well....i could buy all the things that I want. Built one great big library and a great big garden. Fly all over the world a few hundred times. Give some of the money out to the charities. Pay for education for orphans. Give money to medical research facilities. Invest in stocks and unit trust. Set up a Fund for son.

      But on second thought...it is sure nice to have that big amount of money. But can I handle the pressure that goes with the money? People would be hounding me for loans this and that even if i keep quiet. I would have sleepless night thinking about the safety of my family and myself .

      Haiz got money also susah...no money also susah... guess cukup makan and minum then i would be thankful la. hence if i received donation of that large amount, i would not keep it la. I just take whatever amount that i feel i need that return the balance to the donor so that the donor can gives others. Sharing is caring mah...correct or not?
