Guys Out

Last night i when out with the guys (Faizal,Amir & Fadli) to play some pools. We start our reunion by having dinner first at Uptown,Damansara. We all had western cuisine at The Pirates (i think thats the name of the stall 😛 ) Mine was chicken chop with mushroom sauce.The chicken itself was great but i had problem with the sauce.It seems that the sauce have a corn flavour in it and somehow it doesnt mix (on my taste butt that is). In the end i just eat the chicken without the gravy (i manage to swipe off most of it from the chicken).

After satisfied our appetite,Fadli took us to Kota Damansara to play some pools (Sorry,cant remember whats the name of the place). Its been ages since i played pools (if i’m not mistaken,more than 2 years!!!). Since there are four of us,we decide to play tag team,i’m partnered with faizal and amir with fadli. We had sooo much fun talking,laughing,abusing other team and show off our skill to each other. We played from 11.30pm till 2.30am and manage ourself to a tie result (9-9). We cant decide the tie breaker as the place was closing down. So we just call it a day. Even though we played for 3 hours, our hands and body doesnt feel tired at all,but our mouth,face n voices is. We had so much laughing that we left the place holding our jaws and go back home with sweet memories.

I realise that i should have post some pictures in my every entry to make it look good. Hopefully I will remember to take pictures for my next entry :-p

P/S: Just for the record, Faizal manage to pocket 3 balls in 1 shot. Thats the first time I’ve seen it live in my whole life. Be it just a lucky shot,but it counts and we all ending up congratulating him.

Gastritis

I found this article in my comment,send by my GF and i decide to share this info in my blog. She send it to me cause i do have quite a serious gastric problem. I’m not sure where this article originally from, and i’m just post it here so that we all can learn a little bit about gastric. Thank you sayang for the article 🙂

Gastritis is an inflammation of the stomach lining. It is caused by drinking too much alcohol, prolonged use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin or ibuprofen, or infection of bacteria such as Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori). It can also develop after major surgery, traumatic injury, burns, or severe infections. Diseases such as pernicious anemia, autoimmune disorders, and chronic bile reflux, can also cause gastritis.

A person suffering from gastritis experiences stomach upset or pain, belching, abdominal bloating, nausea and vomiting as well as a burning sensation in the upper abdomen. Blood in the vomit or black stools may be a sign of bleeding in the stomach and requires immediate medical attention.

Diet helps in easing out the discomfort experienced in gastritis. One should eat foods that are easily digestible. The food should be easy on the stomach. What foods to eat for gastritis?

Diet tips for Gastritis:
– One must have regular meals. Eating too often can cause acidity.
– Milk and dairy products should be limited to 3 servings per day or less. Have low fat or
fat-free dairy foods whenever possible. It will control the stomach’s acid production.
