Hi there, dear friends :D

Last night, my husband and I suddenly had some strong cravings for “Tong Sui” after dinner  and so, we quickly drove to KTZ  in SS2, Petaling Jaya to get some satisfaction! LOL!

Tong Sui is literally called  “Sugar Water” in the Chinese/Cantonese dialect , but it actually means desserts in sweet soups, and there are many types of Tong Sui.

Hi there, dear friends :D

I usually cook my rice plain to go with one soup, two meat and one veggie dishes for a meal. The only time when my rice got all jazzed up was when I cooked Nasi Lemak, i.e. rice that is cooked in coconut milk and with aromatics like pandan leaves, lemon grass, shallots and ginger thrown in and some salt added.

I was first introduced to the method of adding herbs for cooking together with rice when Master atan said the healthy benefits of herbs can be infused into the rice and the whole family will be eating healthier rice, compared to just plain, white rice.

Hi there, dear ladies! 

Although I had intended this post to be for ladies –  gentlemen, you can also follow these two techniques to lose weight and firm up your body easily! 

Doing Lajin and taking DE are the two easiest and most effortless combination techniques that I have tested and found to be really effective in getting a better-shaped body and in losing those stubborn love handles and fat.

All achievable  without having to go on a reduced-calories or starvation diets, without going for  intensive cardio workouts….plus, you get fast results, too! All you need to do for the exercise part is just to LIE DOWN for a few minutes!

Sounds easy??

Right!! 

After having had 4 children and just passed middle age when most parts of the body go “South,” I can attest to the weight loss efficacy of Lajin and DE, because my clothes have gone down  from a UK size 12 to a size 10 (USA size 10 to  size 8.) I did Lajin for about 2 months starting in August 2014 and then I stopped Lajin when I tested out DE for a month beginning 29 September.

The Morning After……

Hi there, dear friends :D

I am so glad to report that the morning after I had a field day of ecstatically happy emotions, I woke up early this morning  still filled with happy feelings and the song “Happy” by Pharrell Williams was playing continuously in my head! LOL! 

Yesterday, I wrote about Wow, I am deliriously happy now and feel like a superwoman – serotonin boost after taking DE?” and because “happiness” is such an elusive emotion for some of us, I had wondered if my “happiness” tank was going to fizzle out by today. 

Phew, it didn’t! As I am typing this, I am bobbing my head and tapping my feet to the song above – very contented that I didn’t suffer a crash of emotions  and I am still happy today, albeit at a more mellow level, but nonetheless, still preciously good for me.

Although they say that happiness is a state of the mind, I would like to believe that my body is able to now efficiently synthesize serotonin and I have a more stable source of serotonin to “happify” my moods. 

Now, it is past noon already and I am soooo glad that Pharrell is still singing “Happy” in my head! Right, I am off to carry out more decluttering in my kitchen! LOL! 

With best wishes,

choesf :D 

P.S. Hey, I feel like one of those “Jaegers” in the “Pacific Rim” movie and I had beaten the “Kaiju” monster of Crankiness & Irritability…hence, another of my favourite music is also playing in my head!

Wow, I Am Deliriously Happy Now & Feel Like A Superwoman – Serotonin Boost After Taking DE ?

(If music is not playing, click on mute button) 

Hi there, dear friends :D

I can’t believe what I am feeling right now – I am so deliriously happy that I am literally singing in my heart!! This is coming from a 52-yearl old woman who feels like 32-year old now! Perhaps, this is how it feels like being a “spring chicken” and what they say about regaining the “fountain of youth” again? LOL!

I am trying to catch this moment and backtrack my way to see if I can capture the right “formula” to get a rush of happiness by writing about it here before I lose the happy moment, so just that I can get this mood again in future.

Some background first of all ===> almost 4 weeks ago, I started taking Diatomaceous Earth (DE in short and I wrote about it HERE a few days ago) , which have many health benefits, among which are feelings of good mood and increased energy. Today, I experienced a boundless supply of both! Yippee!

Hi there, dear friends :D

This is going to be my longest and most exciting article to date! 

Three weeks ago, I stumbled onto the amazing diverse health benefits of Diatomaceous Earth (DE) while reading up on Oil Pulling. I was so impressed by the wonders of what DE could do for humans that I spent everyday reading up as much as I could find on its testimonials.  

I had to look for testimonials from people through blogs and forums because Food Grade DE is more commonly used for livestock and bugs control, and there was hardly any scientific research to back up DE benefits on humans – mainly because it is  Nature’s natural occurring element and it is not a potential drug that pharmaceutical companies can fund the studies to patent DE and make money out of it.

Because DE is of food grade and safe to give to animals for removing internal parasites and worms, people had also considered it safe to ingest DE for parasitic and worm elimination but in the process, they inadvertently discovered  many beneficial side effects on their health and bodies!! 

* Please note that I am not selling DE and that I am not being paid to write about it here, but I am just sharing with you what I found out about this latest health remedy.  Those of you that follow my blog would know by now that I am always very keen to pick up, research and test out natural health remedies. 

Last year, I wrote about “On A Quest To Reduce My Husband’s Dependency for  High Blood Pressure/Cholesterol/Blood Sugar/ Uric Acid Medication” but unfortunately, my quest didn’t really work out for my husband because I was giving him too many herbal teas to drink and it was tedious to keep doing that daily. Most importantly, my husband didn’t give up his junk and fatty foods and drinks! 

But good news!! After having just ingested Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth for 2 weeks, my family doctor had reduced my husband’s high blood pressure medication! Instead of taking both Norvasc and Micardis daily, he now needs only to take Micardis – thanks to DE, his blood pressure readings of around 115/75 to 122/80 recently were really healthy and stable!!  Our doctor is monitoring the progress of my husband’s medication reduction and next month, my husband’s blood tests due then will reveal the status of his cholesterol, blood sugar and uric acid levels. We hope the DE will reduce them naturally, too! 

Not only did my husband’s blood pressure improved drastically, I also experienced the same effect! My blood pressure which usually hovered around 140/90 (except for that time when I was doing Lajin stretching, my blood pressure was lower around 125/82) even dropped as low as 106/72 after just one week of taking DE! Now, my daily readings range between 125/75 and 116/72 – I am so glad I need not go on any medication that my doctor was trying to put me on! Phew! :D 

But what I was most  happy  among the wonderful effects I got from the DE was my receding hairline corners at my forehead temples have now filled up with baby hairs! My usual baby fine, limp hair is now so much thicker and for the first time last week to attend a wedding dinner, I didn’t even need to use any hair styling products to give my hair good shape….my hair looks good on its own now! Wow! 

Okay….this is going to be a lengthy post because I have so many praises to sing about DE, and so, I will lay them out in point form below. If you or you know anyone who are on medication or statin drugs or are suffering from joint/arthritic pains or have bald spots/receding hairline, go through the notes below for more information. I will post the links to where I got my information from as well as relate my family’s personal experiences there.

Then, do all the research that you need before deciding whether you are going to try ingesting DE or not…

 

Do read also ===> Human DE Use Testimonials - I had enjoyed reading them many times over! LOL! 

 

There is an interesting forum ===> “Health Results Of 4 Months Taking Diatomaceous Earth”  – it has 51 pages of comments, scientific research and studies from April 2013 until September 2014 

 

** Caution! Please ingest only FRESH WATER FOOD GRADE AMORPHOUS DIATOMACEOUS EARTH (DE)  !!
