Cleansing Your Crystals

If you are a fan of crystals (I am SUUUUUUUCCCHHHH a big fan!!) then you should know that as much as crystal energy can effect your energy in a positive way, over time, the crystal also absorbs your energy or the energy of the people around you.

So, over time, the energy of the crystal can become 'dirty' or 'clouded'.

Hence, you need to give the poor lil thing a shower after a period of time. How many times a month should you clean your crystal depends on how many times do you wear it, how you feel and what kind of state the crystal is in. For mine, since i wear it on a daily basis, I cleanse them about once a week. OK, fine. Sometimes I forget.

I forgot to clean mine last week so, here I am, giving them a bath in sea salt solution under the sun.

Always use natural salts as opposed to the usual ones. I know sea salt and lake salt are more expensive but haiyo, these things cannot be frugal about. That is, if you believe in it lah. If you don't, then just use normal salt to rid it of bacteria and stuff.

Bacteria and dirt is also considered dirty, right?

Anyway, the green crystal is malachite which is getting quite rare these days. I love it because it looks a bit like Saturn with those white rings around it! Absolutely heart this crystal. Close-up of the Malachite crystal is like this>>

The blue one is Lapis Lazuli which is also very pretty! It's dark blue with little golden patches in it. The more you wear it, the more patches there are. Close up, it looks like this.

The purple one is, by far, the most common one...Amethyst. It's also one of my favorite. Can't upload the amethyst close-up picture but if you are interested, hit Google and find some really nice images.

So, yes. I am a Crazy Crystal Collector!! :-)

Note (9th Aug 2010): TURNS OUT, you will ruin Malachite when it comes in contact with water. FML. Now, the Malachite is so dull in color. So, warning to crystal lovers, do NOT soak Malachite!!

Maid Side-Kick

I was kind of a little sad when I read the news about this - there will be no live-in Indonesian maids in Malaysia anymore.

There are pros and cons to having a live-in maid, as with everything else, but for us, we enjoyed more pros than cons. Back then, when my kids were little, we brought in a family of maids to help with...well, just about everything, and we were like two families merged into one. They ate what we ate, we sleep, they sleep, we shop, they shop, they joke, we laugh, we joke, they laugh...for me, the maid I hired was more like a sister and side-kick to me.

For that few years, I was dependent on her to mind-read my schedule and when I need or don't need help. She picked things up quickly and we ended up having lots of moments whereby we were in sync. Today, two of them are on my Facebook and we were gleefully chatting over Facebook Messenger since they've just discovered the wonders of the Internet and Social Media.

Since we were more like partners in crime, I f…

Grilled Salmon With Unagi Sauce

I always disagree with people who say that they are lazy to cook, it's too hard, no time, too difficult, easier to eat out....etc. I can't agree because I have found multiple ways to cook simple, cheap meals without causing too much of a ruckus to my schedule. All it takes is a little bit of planning ahead and research. And a sense of humor when it turns put it

Anyway, here's one simple one that ANYONE (kids included) can cook up. Seriously simple and easy.

I love salmon but my kids don't like the smell and texture. But that doesn't mean that I can't go out to the market and spend RM11 on ONE single piece of salmon fish and make MYSELF one, right? Kids can have the overnight pizza. :-)
This is fresh from the oh man! I LOVE IT!!
Wash it properly, de-bone the thing if you want to but I just left everything the way it is and just covered the fish with some of the following:-

Yup, salt, pepper and McCormick's season-all powder…

Stargazer - Stretch Those Sides

I have been doing this pose, part of Cosmic Dance (a type of yoga, I am assuming), called Stargazer pose without knowing it is called Stargazer's pose a lot in the past. You see, sometimes, I don't follow the rules and come up with my own stretches and poses. It is fun.

I have on some music, nice, soothing music or just anything I can click on. Then I go with the flow, letting my hair down. Just moving to the music...and that is when I come up with the above Stargazer's pose.

This pose really stretches your sides. Keep your eyes on the outstretched hand if you are keeping it pointed to the top, as if you are waving or connecting to a higher energy from the Universe. Your arms will ache a little but hey, toned arms, here you come! :-)

For those who want a bigger stretch, it is safe to slowly and gently move the lifted hand towards your back...don't overdo it, listen to your body's complaints and respect it. You don't have to prove anything to anyone, remember th…
