rice_machine Sorry for this flexing post but, I've been regularly working out for the past few months now that I feel a bit of progress post can be forgiven
I'm still far from my goal but, I'm happy that I've finally taken the first step to making myself better by regularly working out. It is a MUST for #mother like me to excercise as it is not only good for your body but, it's also necessary to focus on yourself and have your "me" time.

rice_machine My first pizza!
I blame @monetquindara for this. Stevie has been bugging me to make this since you posted your pizza.

I can't think of a exciting and fun way to burn calories (except I may have just put 'em back in with all the free food after the party). Count me in in your future Zumba parties from now on. Lots of fun and lots of goodies pa. Fantastic event with generous sponsors. Thanks to the most energetic teachers Gino, Celine, Phil & Michelle

rice_machine Supergirl & SuperDaddy earlier today at the William Hill family day. It was nice to see old faces from work. Now, office activities & events are more fun and interesting because of our little one

rice_machine #weddingdress detail. Bead works are coming together and as we are nearing the big day, I get overwhelmingly excited, anxious and scared all at the same time. I'm sorting out every single details of the event which is not exactly a good thing. Everything is starting to come together now.

rice_machine My go to outfit these days. #sporty look for a not-so-sporty mummy. I have to start #running again since the partner signed me up for a 10K #funrun in November. I'm happy to be a Plana Forma gal, at least 3x a week but I know I need to do more #cardio most importantly though, I need to add variety to my workout so it doesn't get boring. #zumba is one of the things I enjoy doing since I really love dancing. However, today's plan of attack is to run 5K, hopefully in less than 40mins. Well, at least that's the aim.

rice_machine The colorful (and playful) colors of cooking vegetable. How's broccoli for a bouquet? #mother#wife and #cook are just a few of the titles I hold these days (permanent too). From someone who can't even fry an egg, I'm now task to cook delicious meals for my lovely vegetarian Stevie. It's very challenging because I try to give him variety of food everyday. I'm no expert but I'm so much more comfortable cooking now. Any recommendation of healthy, delicious and easy vegetarian recipe is more than welcome.

rice_machine Done the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge without the ice bucket.

Since this Ice Bucket Challenge became viral, I've been skeptic because I know a lot of people are doing it for the wrong reasons. However, it made its purpose (at least for myself) for people to know about ALS and most importantly for the organization, ALSA raising over $100,000,000 (I wish I have all that zeros in my bank too) in 32 days. But, because I do not agree with the show-off-let's-get-wet-and-waste-water-part, I have made the donation, minus the Ice Bucket part fun of things.

Thanks for the nomination,Stevie and no, I'm not nominating anyone to do the challenge. Instead, I hope we all have an organization or two we support (whatever advocacy you may have) with or without videos going viral or famous people to imitate.

rice_machine Celebrated a very meaningful birthday over the weekend. Grateful for the morning surprise by my lovely friends/ex-VIP team, Forma workout with @ayshaamarie and then date night with my forever toyboy, Stevie. Special thanks to my ever helpful Aunt, Ate Sally for the sweet cake with a lovely message and most specially for looking after Adele while Stevie and I are out for the night. Sunday funday with one of my closest friends Wilna. Thanks to all of you, it'll probably take a week for us to finish all the sweets in our fridge. I am overwhelmed with all the lovely messages and greetings I've received on Facebook, private and public, SMS, emails and all. No greater feeling than knowing you are loved.

rice_machine This is a #latepost from last weekend. #baby Adele all set to attend her 1st party.

I don't get to take her downstairs because I'm usually busy cooking (vegitarian food for hubby) or off to do my workout. I'm #lucky to have my Aunt helping me out otherwise, I'm either dead or crazy by now. My aunt takes Adele downstairs and she's been dubbed as cutest baby in the building ️ so, she's quite popular. So, we couldn't say no when she was invited to attend the 1st #birthday party of one of her mates. She definitely had fun.

Normal Ria Catacutan
rice_machine Done with my first fitting today. I was scared and excited at the same time, this after all is the most important #dress I will ever wear in my life and just like any other #bridetobe I want it to be #perfect realistically, no dress is perfect on the #firstfitting and so much more work needs to be done with the dress. This however was a reality check for me that it's crunch time. I need to get to my absolute fittest. Next fitting will be in October #hopingforthebest#weddjnggown#stevieandriaeverafter#decemberweddjng#allicansharefornow 2mon
  •   thebeautybrokerage absolutely awesome 2mon
  •   alecxbartender Looks perfect .... :-) 2mon
  •   rice_machine Thanks @alecxbartender it's hard to share a proper pic because we of course want the dress to be a surprise to everyone, including the groom. But, can't help posting as I get way too excited. This however will probably be the last post 2mon

rice_machine Plana Forma + Shopping = happy mum
Because Teacher Celine killed me in our beginner class today, I had to resurrect my katawang lupa by .... well, thought of a million and 1 dessert but then..... I saw the magic word #sale and so, there I was, leaving the mall with 2 #lovely pairs of #shoes

I'm now a #fulltimemum so I don't even really need these shoes but, I'm STILL just like any normal girl, can always do with another pair...or in this case 2
The colors were simply irresistable and best of all, they were on sale.

rice_machine Finally signed up with a designer today for my #wedding gown. I'm so excited to work on this 2nd biggest (Adele's birth being the 1st) event in my #life this year. I'm confident my designer will execute completing my dress really well. I still have 7lbs to lose until the big day and I need to seriously do #forma to get myself in best shape to rock the most important #dress of my life I purposely put sticker on to hide the details of the dress as I'd like for it to be revealed only when the big day comes

rice_machine Such a #cheesy (no cheese) dessert presentation. I blame the weather and Stevie (mentioned he wants crepe). So, here you go #homemade #crepe with banana and homemade #caramel. #yummy it's so worrying in starting to make desserts when we should be getting in shape #ohnoididitagain#hellofatty 3mon

rice_machine Because throwback Thursday is the perfect time to dig in old travel photos, Here's #tbt showing more of my #ootd then more than anything. The beautiful scenery, architecture and perfect summer weather that is #Barcelona made me feel so sexy wearing this high slit #dress. Even just a good old "regular" buildings like the one in the background makes a perfect backdrop for any outfit. I fell in love with #spain and can only wish to be back in the future.

rice_machine Eye on the price , croissant for brunch
Since I'll be skipping #forma today, thought I'd give my dose of #wackyformawednesday working my bum using Adele's walker as my handy bar. Look at that blank look on my baby's face, I know what she's thinking "my mum is a weirdo"
See you tomorrow fellow #thighwarriors and have a wet & wild Wednesday to you all #planaforma

rice_machine Jumped into the lava cake making band wagon last night (took @ayshaamarie word that it's easy). Why I was inspired to bake this cake at 11pm in the evening after exhausting myself to 2 workout sessions in the afternoon, I don't know.

I knew my attempt was going to be an epic fail. For 1, I was not able to completely melt butter & chocolate (used milk chocolate instead of dark just because we have Cadbury milk chocolate in the fridge the size of a chopping board), left the cake in the oven much longer because baby Adele kept waking up and had to put her back to sleep.

In the end, the cake was almost close to a brownie than a cake but, surprisingly, I managed to get it out of the dish effortlessly and voila! It's got lava.

I defo will make this again and mark my word, my next one will be .... say it with me..... P E R F E C T
