#thursday3 [29.09.2016]

I can't believe that the last time I did this challenge was in August. September seems to pass me by so fast. Oh boy! Tomorrow is the last day of September and by Saturday, October is here.

HERE ARE MY PHOTO AND FACTS FOR THE WEEK 


1. September is a crazy month for me. School holidays, Eid Adha, Apple September event, Bangkok Trip and many more. I am drooling over iPhone7plus and Apple watch series 2. I might not get the iPhone 7 plus but I am definitely buying the new apple watch

2. I am currently reading In the Clearing by Robert Dugoni, the third book in Tracy Crosswhite series. I just finished reading the One Thing by Gary Keller, Jay Papasan.

3. Loosing the last 3 kg and keep it off is the hardest thing ever! I have tried a lot of things but nothing seems to work.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Think about it this way…If you take one picture and write down three facts each week — at the end of the year you’ll have more than 50 photos of yourself and 150 facts about what life has been like. It would make such an epic All About Me book — and most of the work is already done." - rukristin.com

Geng Panjat Tangga 2016 Photo book Part 6

Shredding off the last few kilos is the toughest thing ever! I can't seem to get the weight off for good. I have to up my this week and try to move as much as possible and try to hit 10,000 steps as soon as possible in the day. 

Climbing the stairs at work is one of the activity I enjoy doing daily. I am lucky that I work at the beautiful place and the stairs are open air. The view is amazing from the top.

HERE ARE MY SCRAPBOOK LAYOUTS FOR THIS PROJECT AT THE MOMENT

5 things that stuck with me // The One Thing book review

I finally finished reading The One Thing book by Gray Keller and Jay Papasan yesterday. I was curious to know more and this book was everywhere on the internet.

                       (not my photo. taken from the goodsuccess)

It took me awhile to finish the book due to long holidays and vacation time. I have no problem picking up where I left off. The One thing book is all about FOCUS and my one little word for this year is all about FOCUS. This is the right book for me to sharpen my word for this year. 

After reading this book these five things really stuck with me

#1. “What’s the ONE Thing you can do such that by doing it everything else will be easier or unnecessary?”  The question seem simple and yet not an easy one to answer.
The more I think about this the more it make sense. I have been struggling with loosing weight for as long as I can remember. It seems so out of reach. And then this year I bought myself a fitness tracker to track my 10,000 steps in a day. By choosing just one thing to focus on (in this case is 10,000 steps a day) everything else will be easier like burning 500 active calories and eating right.

#2. This book is all about Begin with the end in mind.
When you know you want to achieve at the end of your life, you will set your path and your goal in the direction of your goal.

#3. The Four thieves of your productivity really stuck with me
The four thieves are not able to say no, fear of chaos, poor health habits and unsupportive environment. You should be aware of these four thieves and try to stay away from them as much as you can.

#4. The six lies that cause us to loose focus. 
The six lies discuss in this book are:
 - everything matters equally
   I agree with this because things that matter most must never be at the mercy of things that matter least. 
 - multitasking
 - a disciplined life
 - willpower is always on will-call
 - a balanced life ( this lie really open my eye about a balance life because it doesn't exist. The solution is counter balance)
 - big is bad
He discussed a great length about these six lies in the book which I think is worth the time to read and understand what he meant.

#5. Live with Purpose
"Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself" - George Bernard Shaw
The one thing concept is all about creating the life that you want- live by design. By defining your purpose in life, you will set the priority and plan of action to fulfil your purpose. 

I highly recommend this book! 

Currently reading In the Clearing by Robert Dugoni (the third book of Tracy Crosswhite series).

Super Heroes overload

I have been a fan of DC Comic movies and TV series ever since Smallville. I have been waiting for these TV series to complete their seasons before watching them back to back on Netflix. I am happy that Netflix Malaysia has the whole series of The Flash and Arrow. It's nice to have a place where you can watch your favorite TV series anytime, any where.

Three DC Comic Series I am watching back to back right now

1. Supergirl Season 1
"When I was a child, my planet Krypton was dying. I was sent to Earth to protect my cousin. But my pod got knocked off-course and by time I got here, my cousin had already grown up and become Superman. And so I hid my powers until recently when an accident forced me to reveal myself to the world. To most people I'm assistant at Catco Worldwide Media. But in secret, I work with my adoptive sister for the DEO to protect my city from alien life and anyone else that means to cause it harm. I am Supergirl." Kara Danvers excerpt from imdb.com

It took awhile for me to fall in love with Supergirl. I stopped watching after two episodes because it feels like Supergirl doesn't have anything new since there's already Superman in the picture. I started to enjoy the show after Episode Eight. She's becoming her own person and stronger than ever. I am super excited when there's a cross over from The Flash. I like watching Flash and Supergirl working together. It would be nice to see Supergirl on The Flash for a change. 

I am looking forward to Season 2 but I am not sure if I like the idea of Superman on the show. I hate to see Superman over shadow Supergirl. I'm all about girl power.

2. The Flash Season 2

I got to be honest here. I stopped watching season 2 after episode 6 or 7 because I don't really like the storyline of alternate universe, earth 2 and doppelganger. After the crossover of The Flash on Supergirl, I pick up where I left of hoping that I will see Supergirl there. Too bad that didn't happened but I still enjoy watching the rest of Season 2 - it's all about love, family, friendship and the things we do to protect it. I am looking forward to Season 3.

3. Arrow Season 4

After finished with The Flash Season 2, I have to watch Arrow. I wanted to know what happened to Oliver Queen even though it hurts to watch him with Felicity. I think it's too much to ask to see Felicity and Barry Allen together. I still have a long way to go before I've finished this season but I am keeping an open mind. 

Legends of Tomorrow
The new TV series from DC that started to grow on me. I've always like story about time machine. I learned a lot about Arrow from this season. I started to like all of the characters from the show including Snart and Mick , the two villain from The Flash.
I can't wait for season 2.

Do you have any TV series that you are watching right now? Please leave a recommendation of other TV series you think I might like. I really appreciate it.

Flash back 1996

The moment Apple announced iPhone 7 and the death of earphone jack, I realised something. I have been dancing with hard disk and DVD technology for the longest time. I didn't make the time to transfer all of my data to the new devices thinking that DVD will be around forever. 

I don't want to be the kind of person that regretted not transfer all of my data from a floppy disc to the new devices before you can't find any where for a slot to read your floppy disk.  

I know that all new computer comes without DVD drive and I still have data living inside DVD Disc. I know I have to transfer all of data from my discs to other devices like external hard disk or the cloud. In the spirit of not repeating the same mistake twice, I am going to make it my mission to transfer all of my data from my disc to my hard disk.

What better way to begin other than your wedding photos. Wow! This was a long time ago- nineteen years ago to be exact. These were the time when there was no digital camera. I scanned all of these photos and kept them inside a CD room. 

Oh boy! Was I that young?!

I missed this. I missed my mom so much. She was the one who insist on the "pelamin" and me dressing up for the event. I am not the kind of girl is comfortable being on stage and have people looking at me.
My next project will be to make a project life layouts of my wedding photos. I am not sure if I remember what happened nineteen years ago but I'm sure going to try.

My advice to all my readers to transfer all of you data and documents from you CDs to the new devices like hard disk or cloud services as soon as possible. You might not have that luxury to do so in the future.
