Let the colors fly! #colormerad #5k #toronto

shit just got real.

These past few months I have been getting more and more into Zumba again.  My friend, Mandy, suggested why not get Zumba certified so we can teach Zumba lessons! What a great idea!  I have officially registered for the Zumba Basic 1 course happening in mid-June!

It’s going to be one active summer!  In addition, I will be running in Sporting Life 10K on Sunday, May 11 and Colour Me Rad on Saturday, May 31!  This will be my first time participating in Colour Me Rad.  I’m pretty stoked.

Now, I just need to start training harder … 

Love,

Soon-to-be Zumba Instructor

30 Day Challenge.

I went to visit the dentist earlier this week.  My dentist wasn’t happy after hearing that I don’t floss regularly.  Flossing should be a habit I start so that I have good oral hygiene and less cavities!  Hence, starting today, I will floss once a day before bed until July 17, 2013 (& hopefully, it will become a habit by then).  Now that I announced this to the entire world, I will do it.

Cheers.

Ombre I go ….

I look tired.  Also, you may think my hair looks same but I see a difference!

Central Park on a nice sunny day.

- I can take cool pictures as well.

Obviously, my mom doesn’t know how to take a proper picture.

Shake Shack

What’s the fascination with Shake Shack?  It’s like a glammed up burger joint.  People stand in line for an hour to get a burger and fries, plus a shake of course.  It isn’t anything special other that their burgers are less artificial compared to McD and their fries are nicely cut.  There’s one near my workplace, located at Madison Square Park.  There’s a “Shake Shack Cam" where you can check out if the line is long and you can guarantee a long line on a nice day.      

     

Trust me, the line ended beyond where I’m standing in this picture.  I like the fact that I can have beer in the park (given that it was purchased from Shake Shack).  They have this “modern” way of letting you know that your order is ready.  Unlike Chinese restaurants, where they hand you a piece of paper with a number and call the number when it’s ready, Shake Shack gives you a buzzer!  I know eh?!  I was mind-blown.  

Here’s a photo of my order:

See, their fries look delish!  I ordered a regular burger because I don’t think the ShackSauce was worth $1 more.  Yes, I am cheap to the weirdest things.  I also got an Arnold Palmer, which is just a fancy name for 1/2 ice tea and 1/2 lemonade.  If you’re a tourist and you have all the time in the world, go ahead and try Shake Shack.  You should go on a day that’s raining.  I can guarantee you that the lineup wait will be < 10 minutes!
