So I Took A Short Break

29th Apr 2008

Not that many of you would notice, but I took a short break from blogging and blog hop for a few days last week.

Reason being: Wrist pain.

Yep, I suffered wrist pain (a.k.a. ergonomics injury) Gawd it was painful, I couldn’t get to sleep. Did you know that people who spend a lot of time keyboarding (or in my case, mousing experience wrist pain?)

From my personal experience, this would be the second time I suffer from such pain and boy, I can tell you.. you wouldn’t like the feel! (well of course, who likes pain, huh?) But anyway, I managed to tweak my blog a bit, changing the header and such. I got pretty bored with the previous layout which lacked of a girl illo *hee* – it feels weird not having one on my blog. Hope you’ll like the new look! :-)

Also, I ditched the diet today and fed myself with OldTown Kopitiam’s food.


Nasi lemak – the sambal was DELISH! (not too spicy)




The French toast wasn’t that bad too!



Geez, now that I’m posting pictures of food.. I’m hungry once again. ¬¬

Managed to complete a custom blog header last weekend too.


View the larger size at Annie‘s blog. :-)



Gotta stop now before my wrist starts to hurt again. Time for supper! :B

    Wow, cool new header, the illo of the girl looks like one of those old time chegu … LOL! Nice though …

    You know Cindy, Since Sunday wifey and me have gone on a diet and have eaten nothing and I mean nothing but salads for two days now and I come here and tengok gambar nasi lemak lagi. ARRGGHHHHH!!!!! LOL!

    I’m a rice person and not having rice for 2 whole days is playing havoc with my system … rice, I need rice … LOL! Aiyooo, that french toast lagi … sigghhhh …

    Ya bah, the girl illo looks like those days punya teacher kan? Hahaha!

    Oh I’m a rice person too, Nick. In fact, my partner called me “fan thong” (rice pot) for not being able to live a day without rice. No rice = moody cindy. LOL!

    Hope you’ll managed to go through your diet. I know I need it too!

    since everyone talked about the nasi lemak, i will talk about your ergonomics problem. hubby is on safety so he teaches on this. u gotta really be careful on that cos it can be permanent. try to move your whole hand not only your wrist while using ur mouse. that’s where the pain develops.
    anyways great layout once again.

    Thanks for the tips, Edna. I will try to move my whole hand from now onwards.. although sometimes I tend to forget. :-P But it’s so sweet of you to actually notice my wrist pain talk. :-)
