    Hi choesf

    How’s your first day ‘back to school’? Hope not still running around like headless chicken… I woke up at 6.15am, prepared breakfast, went searching for son’s phone, wallet, water bottle as well as ensured he has his bag packed with all the books. A mother’s work is never done.. can’t help fussy regardless of their age and despite their protest and agitation at our muddling..

    Since then has been having my much awaited quiet time, computer, stock market and coffee!! Off to the gym later, the dreaded part.

    take care, cina

      Hello there, dear cina πŸ˜€

      Having lost touch with my “school schedule” for a while, I had to have extra effort to “get me back into the groove” yesterday! πŸ˜† Luckily for me, my son was more worried that I was and on Sunday evening at 7pm, he got his things ready for school, packed his bag, ironed his uniforms, got his shoes and socks ready…and I made him set his alarm clock to wake me up at 6am. As I have 4 children, I had to delegate some of my duties to them…otherwise, I think I will go crazy being a “headless chicken” again and again! πŸ˜†

      Hahaha, next time I wake up at 6 am, I will think of you waking up early also to get your son to school. πŸ˜‰

      As the CNY approaches, I will be getting busier – decluttering and cleaning my home, buying CNY stuff and preparing to Feng Shui my house for the coming CNY 2011. The rhythm builds and builds and maximises at the CNY Eve Reunion Dinner with family – then only, I can let go and breathe a sigh of relief. πŸ˜†

      With best wishes,

    I am searching for past posts regarding the following:-
    1. remedy for constant headache/migraine. Do you know if double boiled ‘chit kua with ping tong or rock sugar’ good for this ailment? My mum used to boiled that for me as a child when I suffer from weekly migraine. As I grew up I started taking Evening Primrose Oil capsules and that helped alot too.
    2. remedy for poor blood circulation symptoms incl feeling cold on tip of nose, fingers and toes, all other parts warm πŸ˜›

    Regards, cina

      Good evening, dear cina πŸ˜€

      Wow, using “chit kua” with ping tong – that is a really easy and good tip for migraines – thank you very much for sharing that here. πŸ’‘ πŸ˜€

      That’s the first time I heard of it. I must try that out some day. Nowadays, I don’t get regular migraines anymore, thank goodness! However, I do get headaches on the first day of drinking the pegaga. πŸ˜†

      I found out my migraines happening regularly was due to some gallstones I had and after doing the apple juice cleanse a few times to purge my gallstones…my stomach doesn’t develop wind that much as the wind was what caused my migraines. These days, whenever I have some headaches and burping starting, I would quickly take something to remedy the wind in my stomach first.

      Not sure if you have read my post on my gallstones :-


      Going to call it a day now…good night! Have to wake up at 6am tomorrow. πŸ™„

    Thanks for your time Choesf. When I have the time I must read every post on your blog, very informative and useful and entertaining too.
    Have I told you one of my nephews was and still is, though on a much smaller scale, involved in the Feng Shui business for many years. He partnered with a couple of well known Feng Shui sifu. Personally, I do not know much about Feng Shui and don’t really practise it, maybe I should πŸ™‚

      Good evening, dear cina πŸ˜€

      Thank you for your kind comments. We will have a cup of virtual coffee or teh tarik here whenever you drop by. πŸ˜†

      I got interested in Feng Shui when my family was facing financial difficulties many years ago. It got so bad that whenever we had some money saved, some unfortunate incident will cause that same amount to be spent. Plus, hubby’s career wasn’t going anywhere and there was no pay increment. I was looking for answers and found out the hubby was in downluck cycles. So, decided to learn what we can do to counter that and improve our luck. At that time, I was already a homemaker and had to stay home to take care of my 4 young children. and couldn’t really contribute to the family’s income. πŸ˜₯

      I started with Vasthu Sastera (ancient Indian Feng Shui) and followed the famous VS writer, Mr Rajen, in The Star newspaper. Heheh, my hubby even drove me all the way to Port Klang one evening to listen to his talk and get his advice. From there, we identified what was wrong with our home that has caused money to drain away. I got really interested in Feng Shui thereafter. Ventured into Chinese Feng Shui when I followed Lillian Too’s techniques for a while….found out too many figurines and statues to be purchased every year and things didn’t really improve ….. stumbled onto Master atan’s New Age Feng Shui, which I quite like in its straighforward manner and found it suitable for my family…that was in 2006. Guess it’s fate or karma that led me into Feng Shui. πŸ˜†

      Master atan’s techniques are different from the regular Classical Feng Shui in that his recommended Feng Shui items for placement can be “activated.” I am also a Reiki Master (I retired from giving free healings when Master atan invited me to be a Moderator at his forum) and that helped me to understand how energies can be used for positivity and balancing. πŸ’‘

      So, that’s how I got into Feng Shui…I actually didn’t believe in it at all 10 years ago! πŸ˜†

      From my experience, most people who had turned to Feng Shui for help were those that were encountering problems in their life – from wealth, health, career or relationship aspects. There is a saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” So, if one’s life is smooth, then it is okay…don’t rock the boat. But if you intend to try Feng Shui, do some research in the various types of Feng Shui available and “feel” from your heart which one is right for you, and you will be alright. πŸ˜‰

    As always, thanks for the time to reply in such lengthy detailed manner, much appreciated. No wonder we can connect as I am also into Vasthru Sastra and follow Mr Rajen’s article in the Star, he is so good. I am also a believer in Reiki when I had my sessions with an India lady who came from America at the invitation of a yoga center. It was unbelievable when the warm energy enters my toes and spread thru my entire body. That was a few years ago and I am still awed my that experience. Since than I have not had opportunity to meet up with the lady, she came back only once last year I think.

    Yes, Feng Shui can be very overwhelming esp. those that advise one to renovate house, move the door the kitchen etc…

    Like anyone, some aspects of my life need to be fixed and I kept saying that for years now and getting older and nothing is being done, we procrastinate, become complacent and get our priorities wrong sometimes. Sometimes the mental state needs to take charge first right?

      Good morning, dear cina πŸ˜€

      Ah, no wonder we can chat well here…common “frequencies”.. πŸ˜† My family got introduced to Reiki about 10 years ago through our piano teacher. We saw how my eldest daughter’s arm sprain healed and got comforted from just 1 Reiki session. So, I went for the Reiki courses up to Master level. Then I attuned or initiated my children and hubby to Reiki, so they can Reiki themselves for healing..or they can Reiki me when I am unwell. πŸ˜‰

      The mental state is the hardest to control – it has a mind of its own… πŸ˜† heheh, this can be experienced during meditation where we observe mindfulness. The body is still but the mind is thinking here and there about all sort of things. Hey, even my I think to myself in the morning that I want to do certain chores….in an hour, my mind will say “never mind lah, those things can wait..do tomorrow lah”…hahaha…I even have a post called :-

    Its a pity that the simplest pleasure of life are beyond our reach not because its unattainable but because we dwell on too many ‘stuffs’ in our head. I admire people who has achieved a inner peace and contentment, able to live life to the fullest and smell the roses so to speak. sometimes we carry too much excess baggage and unable to let go of the past and worry abt the future that may or may not be.

    How long did it take you to achieve reiki up to master level choesf? Was it very difficult to achieve and require a lot of mental strength and concentration? During my session, when the practitioner got to my elbows and ankles if I remember correctly, I broke down in tears and was crying uncontrollably and other areas I was gigging and smiling from ear to ear. It was rather fascinating cuz I knew and could hear my cries and giggles, I was so loud and yet I couldn’t control it… really fascinating… I also felt as if I had levitated when basked in the warm energy.

      Hello there, dear Cina πŸ˜€

      There was probably some emotional healing of some sort for you when you had your Reiki session – it is a healing process. πŸ˜‰

      I’m not sure about others, but for me, it was quite a smooth process being attuned to Reiki Level 1 and then 2 and then Master level. Altogether it, took me 2 years – with a few months to reach Level 2, and then a period of 1 1/2 years before I the Master level. Reiki is very soothing – there is no concentration or effort required…just relax and send gentle intentions and the energy or chi or ki will flow automatically. I can remember though at one time, I cried because I felt the strong love of the energy.

      Maybe I was also attending weekly Buddhist and meditation classes at the same time I was practising Reiki and hence, it was an easy process for me. During meditation, some emotions or past traumatic memories would surface but we just acknowledge them and let them go. Meditation helps a lot in keeping the mind still and being in the moment. An easy one to do would be “walking meditation” πŸ’‘ –
