It’s Shark Week folks, so disclaimer to all the guys who get squeamish about hearing about periods, this has some mentions of it. Meal prepped lunches this week, so I wasn’t anticipating much trouble… but then I ran into some unexpected consequences… Monday, March 5 Woke up after having a period dream (sorry to any male readers) where you dream that your period has arrived. … Continue reading No sugar week 2
I never thought this day would come. All my life I have hated the gym, been too intimidated by the machines to use them, never lifted super heavy weights. Heck, up to 2008 I barely even exercised. Background I’ve always been the kid who curls up into a sofa and reads continually. I read anything and everything I could, including my older brother’s textbooks (and … Continue reading I am a gym rat.
I said this to my sister in law and she reacted, naturally, in disbelief. What happened is that I moved out from my family home to a bedroom with my in-laws, so we put some things in storage at my other sister in law’s place (the first is my brother’s wife E; the second is my husband’s sister K) When Black Friday rolled around, I … Continue reading I have stuff in four houses.

Three doctor visits later, I’ve accumulated a lot of waste from all the medicines etc. So here are a few ways … Continue reading Reducing Waste When Sick

It’s also entirely zero waste since I’m basically drinking water from the sink and from the filtered water system in the office. I also want to see if I can feel energised and … Continue reading I drank a gallon of water for 30 days.

My first two days are … Continue reading How to Have a Zero-Waste Period
As I shifted my mindset more towards zero-waste living, I often had (and still have) the urge to purchase things, and often stalk the grocery-restaurant at Mahota in Singapore to try to purchase some. More often than not I don’t buy anything, mainly because I don’t have the budget for it (saving up for renovations etc). So I scrounged around my house and here’s what … Continue reading Zero Waste essentials–free
