We, the consumers, are being squeezed!

Squeezed

Hi there, dear friends 😀 

When my children were still young, I often hear the other women shoppers at the “pasar” (wet markets) complaining that RM50 didn’t buy as many meats and vegetables compared to many years ago. We would lament together how little RM50 could buy us. I was fine with the gradual price increases then, as I understood it was because of inflation.

But I really hate it these days, when companies sneakily reduced the size of their products and sugar-coating that as a price reduction, or as promotional sales items. Heck, some even dared to retail sell the smaller products at the same prices as before!

My favourite dish detergent, which costs more than the usual ones in the supermarkets, but is less harsh on my hands, has a nett weight of 930ml, compared to 1 litre before. 

My favourite canned tuna is getting smaller and smaller, but is costing more and more.  I found my tube of favourite toothpaste is feeling lighter and thinner in my hand.

In those day, when they call a product “jumbo sized,” it was really jumbo sized. 

Many brands of eggs for sale now are touting their medium sized eggs as large sized, but selling them at large-size-eggs prices. So, when I need large eggs for my baking needs, I have to buy Jumbo Eggs or Extra Large Eggs. 

Even my favourite loaf of wholemeal bread sold now feels somewhat smaller and lighter, although the price remains the same. 

So, effectively, we are actually paying more for our consumables….sigh…

Sneaky! Sneaky! Sneaky! 

We, the consumers, are being taken advantage of and being squeezed by the companies who are trying to increase or maintain their profit margins, at our expense. 

But it is all a chain reaction. Increasing the nett prices of our consumables and foodstuff will result in us, the consumers, cutting back on the other non-essential spending, e.g. less caramel macchiatos at my favourite cafe, less going to the movies, less shopping for clothes, handbags, etc….because most people’s take home pay have not increased much over the years. 

The shopping malls may appear to be crowded, but most of them are merely window shoppers.

A friend who is a regional manager for some brands of mobile phones told me that sales have dropped a lot in the past year.

The contractor, who did some minor renovations for my house recently, said that the general business sentiment is quiet. 

To me, food and consumables make up a big chunk of my family’s monthly spending. If I have to spend more for the same amount that I buy for them, or get a lesser amount for the same price I pay for them, then I will just make do by buying less of those items, and/or by cutting back on the spending of the other non-essentials stuff. 

By doing that, I believe I have started the first domino dropping in the chain reaction that will affect the rest in the economy – i.e. companies in general will experience lower demand, lower sales, lower profits – just because we, as the consumers, were squeezed in the first place for our consumables! Lol!

Take care and be well! 

With best wishes,

Happy Father’s Day – 18 June 2017!

Happy Father's Day

Hi there, dear friends 😀 

May you have a wonderful and happy time today – celebrating Father’s Day as a dad, with your dad, and with your family! 

As I was adopted, I never knew my biological father, but my foster dad loved a lot as if I were his own flesh and blood. He doted on me as I was his only child, having adopted me  as an infant when he was 62 years old, when my foster mom was unable to have children after trying for 15 years. Sadly, my dad passed away 22 years years ago and I missed him a lot today, on Father’s Day. 

My husband’s dad passed away when he was only 17 years old, and I was sad today that he never really got to do stuff with his dad when he grew into an adult. 

But my husband got cherished today as a dad on Father’s Day by our four children, who have so quickly grown up into wonderful adults – the youngest is already 22 years old! Lol! They brought us out for brunch this morning at a French restaurant and we had a great time trying out French food together! My husband was beaming with joy  the whole day – he had a great time and good food.  

Take care and may all of you have a great Father’s Day, too! 

With best wishes,

choesf 😀

My DIY Orgonite – For EMF Protection, For Converting Negative Energies To Positive Energies, For Healing & Good Health

IMG_6605

My third batch of orgonite – in blue colour this time. The smaller ones are personal orgonite for each of my family members

Hi there, dear friends 😀 

I first stumbled onto the amazing world of orgonite a few months ago, and I was amazed at what it can do to help convert negative energies (Electromagnetic Fields or EMFs in particular) into positive energies. There is a lot of information on the Internet on the various ways to make orgonite and how it works for us. 

Articles on EMFs —>

Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) – Are The Dangers For Real?

Dr.Mercola’s “EMF Health Risks Controversy Exposed”

After completing my research, I decided to make my own orgonite because it was just too expensive for me to buy them online – I needed many pieces to grid the parameter of my property  for EMF protection, to place them at my wifi routers/modems, at my electricity smart meter, wifi extenders, laptops,  even in my cars as we use Bluetooth while driving, too. 

IMG_3271

My personal orgonite stuck to my iPhone7+ cover – I use my phone more than my laptop. Plus it gives me added protection from the EMFs when I go out. 

Because there are so many helpful videos and instructions out there on how to make orgonite, I will just post my orgonite method here and tell you to avoid the mistakes that I made! Lol!

The top one is my very first orgonite that I made. The second one, the orgonite turned out a little softer that it should be. The bottom is the latest batch that yielded the best looking ones. Lol!

Something to keep you guessing…

Hi there, dear friends 😀

Just a short post here, blogging from my iPhone, to show you a picture of something that I had made yesterday (it is the gold speckled thingy) that has a lot of health benefits, can turn negative energies to positive, and most importantly, can counter the EMFs that bombard us daily. 

I will keep you guessing as to what that thing is for now, and I will try to write a full article on it as soon as possible. 

Take care and Good Night from Malaysia!

With best wishes for good health,

Synchronicity & Messages In Numbers

Numbers

Hi there, dear friends 😀 

For as long as I can remember, I see repeated numbers occasionally, but I never thought they meant anything before. 

But lately, the synchronicity in numbers are occurring more often and I begun to wonder if they are actually messages from the divine?

Some examples of the numbers I see often are like these (and I can see as many as 3 sets in a day. Lol! ) :-

  1. waking up in the middle of the night to see 3:33, 2:22 or 4:44 on my bedside clock
  2. 11:11 on the clock of my TV decoder when I passed by my living room
  3. finding the total price of RM 77:99 on the cash register when I was paying for something
  4. 888’s on car licence plates
  5. seeing numbers in my dreams…etc..

Amazing World Of Sound Healing Part 1 – Solfeggios Frequencies

solfeggio

Hi there, dear friends 😀 

Recently, I stumbled onto Solfeggio frequencies, which can be used as a unique sound therapy for healing purposes – physically, mentally or emotionally.  

The original Solfeggio scale was composed of six tones with the names of these original six sounds —> Ut, Re Mi, Fa, Sol, La –  they were the abbreviations of the first stanza (in Latin) of the famous Medieval Hymn “Ut queant laxis”, written by Paul the Deacon in the 8th Century A.D. for the feast of the birth of St. John the Baptist. 

But it was only in the past few decades that Solfeggio was “rediscovered” and found to have frequencies that can heal. Dr Joseph Puleo used the Pythagorean method of numeral reduction to find the mysterious 6 mathematical patterns encoded there, i.e. 396, 417, 528, 639, 741 and 852 as in the scale “Ut, Re, Mi, Fa, Sol, La” respectively. 

The healing attribute properties of each scale and frequency are :-

Ut 396 Hz – for negative field energy release, e.g. fear and guild

Re 417 Hz – to allow and and create positive change

Mi 528 Hz – for transformation and miracles, to heal DNA (aka The Love Frequency)

Fa 639 Hz – for love and unity

Sol 741 Hz – for intuition and enlightenment

La 852 Hz – spiritual sight and awareness

How the frequencies work on us and our body is through vibrations. Many spiritual healers have resonated these 6 frequencies to our 6 body chakras as well.

There is even an article on how someone used Solfeggio Frequencies to clean polluted waters in the Gulf of Mexico during the BP oil spill  :-

528HZ SOUND “MIRACULOUSLY” CLEANED OIL POLLUTED WATER IN THE GULF OF MEXICO, ACCORDING TO A NEW STUDY BY A CANADIAN RESEARCHER

For the past 5 days, I have been listening to music containing Solfeggio frequencies. There is a wide range of such music on Youtube, iTunes, and Spotify. Basically, I chose a  range of music with the frequency that I prefer, e.g.  the 528 Hz. Make sure that it says Solfeggio in the music. 

Here is my feedback …  Read the rest of this entry »
