Refired Not Retired Day To Live Life To The Fullest

Updated 6 March 2022, 12pm

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has recently read about how to celebrating Refired, Not Retired Day, 1st March annually, it’s as simple as reevaluating any of your ideas (If yet to have, can start exploring now 😃) of what it means to you to be retired. What have you got planned for the years after you retire or even retire early❓⁉️

Refired Not Retired Day is dedicated to all those people who have retired already OR about to get retired. During retirement period of life, live your life to the fullest, yes, just enjoy your life & make the most of these retirement years by doing things that you always wanted to do, as you finally got time to do all the things that you love to do.

Hmm…SiennyLovesDrawing actually wishes to retire early, yes ✅, since she has graduated & starting to work 👩🏻‍💻, this is a life goal 🎯 that she is working on. It means good financial habits count, be discipline in your budget set, not wasting money unnecessarily etc. Some of her tips are reduce eating out, no unnecessarily phone upgrades, unnecessarily clothing & apparel shopping, not to opt for extended warranties & not to fall into emotional impulse shopping etc.

“Planning to retire? Before you do find your hidden passion, do the thing that you have always wanted to do.” ~ By Catherine Pulsifer

Apart from the major concern ie. Enough financial to support early retirement, the rule of thumb widely recognised is only withdraw 4% from retirement savings each year

Personally to her, enough meant differently by each retirees, if you can be living on a lower budget that you’re comfortably adapting to, without any luxury elements, then your “enough” for early retirement surely more achievable, as compared to those that wish to enjoy a more luxury comfortable retirement life. So, a honest & reality self reflect is required to consider your retirement lifestyle, current or long term healthcare needs, living downsizing etc. ya 💪🏻🙌🏻👍🏻

The important factor that drives her to achieving early retirement is what she is gonna do to fill her time after retire. Once retired, it means literally you have extra hours of 9 to 5 on your own, no need answering to many bosses, hurray‼️ She knows herself well that she needs to keep her time occupied, she just can’t be doing nothing for a long time, she just can’t, lol 😆

Frankly, initially when she wishes to retire early, so she can backpacking around the world 🎒🌎, however with the global health pandemic now, she needs to pen down what she is gonna do instead before her long backpacking journey then

Let’s start to craft out an actual plan for your post-retirement years OR plan a fun bucket list that you can happily tick off after each exciting completion during your retirement

It’s just a new 🆕 beginning after your retirement, enjoy new 🆕 life for your own self. It’s a 2nd chance for all retirees to live life to its fullest to stay happy vital

In this sharing, SiennyLivesDrawing 👩🏻 is gonna sharing some pointers/ ideas of what to do to fill your time during retirement. It’s important to plan well to enjoy the max benefits of an early retirement 😃

What’s your answers to these questions❓⁉️

  • When you were a child, what did you love most? Isn’t it now the time that each of us remembered the simple joy of being a child?
  • Anything you wished you would have done? Not done?
  • Who matters to you?
  • If money were not a problem, what would you be doing now?

Ladies night at The KL Journal Hotel

Yeah‼️SiennyLovesDrawing👩🏻just had an enjoyable gathering dinner🥘🥗🍛🍽& ladies👭👭👭🍸🥃🍷🍻night🌃at The Terrace Bar & Grill, KL Journal Hotel🏢recently

Guess what❓⁉️

It was like a mini gathering with her another 2️⃣ lady friends👭whom met each other & became friends from a media event last year. Not a plan frankly, it was just so coincidently though😃

1️⃣ of her lady friend actually purposely travelling🚌🚍from Penang to KL for this gathering👩🏻👭 night. Yeah‼️Love you babe, Jas😘

Hmm…Curious of the dishes🥘🍛🥗ordered for the gathering night🌃❓

Killer Fish🐟Head Curry Set🍛🌶

Among all the dishes served that night🌃, this is her favourite❤️

Why❓⁉️

SiennyLovesDrawing👩🏻 is not a spicy food lover❌❤️🌶, but she loves curry. The spicy level of this curry really suits her taste bud with the usage of Western herbs👍🏻Ha…Ha…Even though with its dish name as “Killer”❗️Not too spicy ya😂🤣

Hmm…If you are a spicy food lovers❤️🌶, then you may need to request to the friendly waiter💁🏻‍♂️/ waitress💁🏻 for an additional spicy🌶🌶dosage ya😀

The set serving is for 4️⃣ pax & served with a bowl of white rice🍚, vegetables pickle🥗 (aka Acar) & papadum😊

Highly recommended👍🏻this delicious tasty curry ya

Hmm…However, just need to enjoy this tasty curry slowly because of its fish bones (Red Snapper🐟 ~ the choice of fish cooked in this curry🍛) as well as the scales on some part of the fish head in this curry served. She has provided her feedback to the hotel F&B management team👨🏻‍💼for its continuous enhancement consideration🙂

Grilled Chicken🐔🐓& Beef🐮🐂Satay (Or you can just opt for just chicken/ just beef)

Skewers of grilled marinated chicken🐔🐓(in orange marinated) & beef 🐮🐂ith lemongrass served with shallots, cucumber🥒& rice cubes🍙with spicy🌶🥜peanut sauce (Yippee‼️Not very spicy❌🌶for SiennyLovesDrawing👩🏻😁)

Very meaty of each stick & the best thing is without skin in between the meat, yeah❗️

Hmm…If you prefer to enjoy the satay meat with some skin, you maybe dissappointed🙃then

Seafood🦐Spaghetti Aglio-Olio🍝🌶

A plate of spaghetti🍝tossed in light olive oil & served with fresh water prawns🦐, garlic, chili 🌶powder & topped with parsley🌿

Hmm…Just her personal preference, would be good if without the chili powder for her to enjoy it (Again, just because she is not a spicy food lover ya)

Authentic Caesar Salad🥗

The KL Journal Hotel, https://siennylovesdrawing.wordpress.com/
The KL Journal Hotel, https://siennylovesdrawing.wordpress.com/

A mixture of baby romaine lettuces🌱🌿with sliced hard boiled eggs🥚, roasted chicken🐔🐓breast & topped generously with the Parmesan cheese🧀 (Wow❗️Love❤️it‼️)

If you are on your healthy diet plan, this would definitely be your choice of dining in here ya😋

Barbeque (BBQ) Glazed Gaucho Beef🐮🐂Ribs

Amazed with the way it served on a so called “wooden plate”, the hickory smoked BBQ slow cooked angus short ribs🐮🐂& served with basil pesto

She loves❤️the softness well done of this dish, juicy delicious😋 

According to the hotel F&B management team👨🏻‍💼, this dish aims to best pairing with your alcoholic drinks (beer🍻🍺, cocktail🍸, 🍷🥃🥂etc.) while dining in🍽

Sumac Roasted Spring Chicken🐔🐓

The KL Journal Hotel, https://siennylovesdrawing.wordpress.com/

Similary, it served on a “wooden plate” & also aims to best pairing with your alcoholic drinks🍺🍻🍷🥂🍸🥃

Hmm…Personally she doesn’t really enjoy this dish because it tasted a bit hard & dry, moreover she just fixed her tooth filing 2️⃣ days ago

Yeah❗️Always the best to end a delicious meal with a fruits🍓🍉🍈platter as dessert, loving this especially because of the healthy yogurt pairing😉

Almost forgetting this, she loves❤️the live music🎵🎶🎼🎤performance here

Ha…Ha…Perhaps because that night🌃was a handsome good looking Mat Salleh👱🏻singer👨🏻‍🎤 Do enjoy the short clip📹🎥of the live music🎵🎶🎼🎤

Oppss…can’t really see the handsome👱🏻face ohh…As she snapped it from far as worry blocking viewing of other diners there, do dine in there to enjoy the live show ya😝

It was a great night with 4Gs ~ Great friends accompany👭 + Good food🍽🍛 + Great ambience + Great live music performance🎵🎶🎼🎤

Guess what❓⁉️
