Shaklee National Conference 2012/2013

I know this post is a bit late because the Shaklee National Conference was over almost 2 weeks ago, but hey, better late than never ! Hehe.

So Mr. Sunshine and I attended the Shaklee National Conference 2012/2013 on June 8 at Sunway Resort & Spa. It is an annual event to celebrate all the achievers (Star Achievers, as Shaklee puts it) of the previous 2012/2013 cycle. :)

Apart from the awards ceremony, there was also good entertainment and inspiring sharing sessions from Presidential Master Shareeza (my great grandma in Shaklee, hehe) and Master Law Chu Hian (ex-NTV7 broadcaster who beat cancer -  I can't believe he's 50 years old !).

Mr. Sunshine and I were recipients of an award too that day, Alhamdulillah. No words can express my feelings when we walked up the stage with our trophy ! Congratulations to all my sisters in Shaklee who received the same award. Funny how all of us were so excited queuing up to receive our awards. Hehe.

My rock ! Thank you for continuous support, sayang ! :)

My Ummi in Shaklee is so awesome she received 9 awards ! Yes, 9 ! She is now based in Miri so that goes to show that distance doesn't matter, you can grow with Shaklee no matter where you are.

My Ummi, Senior Key Coordinator Nadiah Suhaidi, who's currently preggers. :)

My 'anak', Hajar, who managed to come that day. :)

It was such a memorable event, overflowing with positive energy. So exhilarating !

I vow to make next year's National Conference even more memorable and I want to see my 'anak-anak' walk up the stage too, InshaAllah ! :)

soda pop.

Hi all. :)

I just had to document this.
This is going to be hard to believe but I HAVE NOT HAD A CARBONATED DRINK SINCE APRIL !
Woohoo !
I consider this a huge achievement because prior to that I was downing Coke Light (and going to McDonald's) AT LEAST once a week. :(
Even Mr Sunshine is amazed that I can live without Coke Light. Haha.

This is a decision I made based on the increased frequency of my cold sores, I did some research and I found out that an acidic diet contributes to cold sore flare ups. Although Shaklee products helped in decreasing my cold sores severity and duration, they were still popping up more frequent than usual.

Plus, I don't want my daughter to gain the habit of drinking soft drinks too !

I used to stay away from sodas until I was in UiTM, and that was also when my insane love affair with McDonald's started. I used to study every day at McDonald's during examination week, imagine that !

So basically I have been avoiding fast food and most importantly carbonated drinks. If  I do go to a fast food joint (which is pretty rare these days), I'll skip the soft drinks. :)

I am so frickin' proud of myself.

Ok bye. :)
