Rice Can Read Experiment: Part I

It’s puzzling….it really is! I came across this little experiment which just about ANYONE can do at home. It says there that plants have feelings. Sure, we all know that. But the theory is that everything including your chair or and rice have feelings. We, me included, take it with a pinch of salt and think that those psycho who actually talk to plants are a little ‘unscrewed’ up there.

Here’s what some of the theories go too…that plants…everything, in fact, can READ!

Wah…where can believe such a thing wan lah? Have feelings is one thing, but can read is quite another. So, guess lah what this kepoh went and did.

Yes, she went and test-drive this theory lor.

OK, here’s how it works. You need to cook some rice. And then you put them in different containers. In pieces of paper, you write a happy and joyful word like ‘love’, ‘joy’ or ‘celebrate’ or ‘hello, nice to meet you’…something like that. On another piece of paper, you write a very negative word(s) like ‘fuck off’, or ‘screw you’ or just ‘hate’.

Paste those words onto each of the container containing the rice and then place them in a place, separate from each other so that you can ‘speak’ to them or ‘relate’ to them differently…but they should be in the same room, I think. I don’t think the container needs to be airtight lah because mine is not. If the cover is too loose, just use cellophane tape; but there’s no need for it to be airtight, I think. If it’s important to you, maybe you should research it a little bit, ok?

So, this was what I did. I will introduce you to my two new pets….LOVE RICE and HATE RICE. I’ve placed them under my computer table and check on them once in a while. Today is day 5 of my lil experiment.

This is my LOVE RICE This is my HATE RICE

Day 2 itself, I saw a slight deterioration in my LOVE RICE. I thought ‘Walamak, don’t lah. Don’t die first lah’ so I spoke to the rice, ‘Don’t die, ok?’ The HATE RICE was still OK wor.

From day 3 onwards, ‘hate rice’ starts to deteriorate….SERIOUSLY LAH! Don’t fooking laugh! I am effing serious here leh… :-)

Day 5 (today), I have to say that I am utterly SURPRISED that there is already a remarkable difference between the condition of the LOVE RICE and the HATE RIVE. HATE RICE have deteriorated and started changing color so bad liao while LOVE RICE remains pretty much the same as day 2…with a small patch of rot inside. Apart from that, the love rice looks pretty much…edible. Eugh….

Love rice pretty much still EDIBLE....wanna try. There's a little bit of rot there but, otherwise, it looks pretty much alright....

HATE RICE isn't doing too good with lots of patches of rot....and

HATE RICE also turning different colors too.

Meanwhile LOVE RICE is pretty much cool-looking on the side.

I’ll let you know and take more pictures as I go along this amazing discovery that ‘rice can read experiment’! I have twenty more days to go, for your information, because this experiment is supposed to last thirty days for you to see that LOVE RICE will be able to withstand time and temperature and remain pretty much the same while HATE RICE will rot to green-black mush.

I am not looking forward to seeing HATE RICE in that condition under my desk but hey….it’s all in the true spirit of discovery, isn’t it?

Marsha, I talk to my plants and my cat all the time! Actually that's the strange power of words. Also, the reason why people who are making niangao don't want youngsters hanging about and asking if the niangao will jadi or not. The power of words. My personal experience - talking to plants helps me and the plants. Seriously, my bamboo plant was almost dead but I spoke to it all the time and after a year, it started growing! Believe it or not.....

maya, FINALLY someone who is in the same wavelength as me!!! it's true because hate rice now is almost all black liao and love rice is still ok wor. amazing or not????

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, reme

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 crim

The Short Hair Scandal

Except for a short period of my life where I donned long hair (which was mightily unkempt), I've mostly sported the short or bob hair cut. I just didn't have the time to deal with the straightening, curling, or whatever it is that women are required to do before they get out of the house to buy a bag of salt from the grocery store.  I've wanted to write something about how An San, a rising archer from South Korea,  got flack for sporting a short crop . Despite her performing with near stellar perfection.  How is having short hair a sign or declaration of anti-men?  Are men who wear their hair long anti-women, then? I don't even know where this is going because it doesn't even make sense. LOL. Short hair is simply easier to manage. The flip side is that if you have to attend a gala or a big event, short hair is even harder to style! PLUS, some women just look fantabulous with a short crop!
