I'm saying NO to sugar

It's  been 3 days ..........been 3 days since I started this sugar free diet. It's really tough since I have a sweet tooth but sometimes I just gotta do what I gotta do for health sake. I did gave it a try a few weeks ago for a few days but failed miserably......because I just couldn't help myself from taking chocolate drinks every day. It's a bad habit I know and it had to stop.

But it's not just about the chocolate drinks....it's the coffee...the tea....the hot sweet drinks that I crave for each morning for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I rarely eat chocolates....or take desserts....or eat sweets....it's not something I take everyday...or every week for that matter. It's the hot sweet drinks that I love the most and seem difficult to avoid taking everyday. 

But now it has all changed. Not only have I not taken any hot sweet drinks of any kind.....I have not taken anything that has sugar in it. Seriously!

I'm not sure how long will I last this time......but I hope to be able to do it for a month and see how it goes.....I'm sure that after a month my body will be accustomed to the new diet and I'll be able to go on with it for the next few months. In fact I hope to continue doing this forever because I know that my body is not able to take sugar that much and is having problems dealing with it. Will stay positive!!! :)

Buah Asam Gelugor


Yesterday, for the first time, I get to see buah asam gelugur up close.......because all this time I only get to see the cut up version that's all dried up and ready to be used for cooking like the photo below...


The smell of the dried fruit is very nice.....makes me hungry aahahaha.......

This is how it looks like close up....


The fruit itself look so pretty.....it kinda reminds me of buah cermai....but a much bigger version of buah cermai..... hehehe. Below are photos of my Aunt Norma and Kak Mus who actually brought those asam gelugor all the way from her fruit orchard in Negeri Sembilan.....as you can see below, they were processing the fruits for the drying process....
