Hello new friends!! LAVA STONEs are here.

New friends have come to join me in my quest for relaxation.
They are the  LAVA STONEs from Texas, a special stone suitable for hot stone massage 
The stone can maintain the heat inside for a long time.

I always feel connected with natural material and I always use them for my treatments. Essential  oils , herbs , crystals  are like my close friends.
I surely feel their energy .

Last week I attended a hot stone therapy class and the teacher from Australia taught us what hot stone is and  how to use it.
Interestingly, her hot stone massage style was from Hawaii and it really suits well with my lomilomi Hawaiian massage.
The class was much grater than I expected.
I got a lot inspiration from her hot stone treatment demonstration.

I am sure that hot stone therapy is one of the most important on my list of treatments.
When I tried the hot stone massage in the class, I surely felt that stone energy healed me not onlymy body but my soul as well.
After the massage, I felt so energetic and refreshed.
I'm certain the stone is alive.

Now I'm excited to explore how to combine hot stone with other natural materials.
I would say  that hot stone massage is one of the crystal healing therapy wherein you could get the healing energy from  Mother Earth.
I specially feel that  LAVA STONES are full of powerful energy from the earth.

Let me explain how energy from the earth will work on you.
It is basically like that feeling you have after going to a botanical garden, you feel recovered  and  refreshed .
Or after spending a day near a beautiful sea, you are released from stress and restored .
This is how natural energy can heal you.

I'm sure that the stone will help me and my client a lot.
I can't wait to use these stones for my treatments.
I think the Hot stone massage  which has the ability to keep you warm is the most necessary  treatment for Singaporians and all those living in Singapore because we are used to staying  inside extremely cold buildings that can sometimes feel like being inside a fridge  and this extremely cold makes our body feel very cold too.
I've never met therapist who has warm hand, their hands are always so cold like ice and that means their  organs are already colder.

Keeping your body , inside and out,  warm is essential for your health and beauty .


Eating a Better Bitter Gourd !!

Bitter gourd is well known to be good for health and beauty.
It is rich in Vitamin C which is an anti-oxidant agent that prevents black spot.
Vitamin C usually diminishes in food in the process of cooking but  in bitter gourd ,  it does not easily disappear even when exposed to heat while cooking.

Also bitter gourd can help us refresh our body , so it is very good during summer and is surely a necessity for those who live in tropical countries all year round. 

I usually like my bitter gourd stir-fried  but recently my friend told me her recipe which she invented together with her husband !
By using plenty of tomatoes and onions , the bitterness will become milder and it will be more delicious .
She uses oyster sauce and soy sauce, but I prefer to use black beans and red chili bean sauces.

Enjoy your bitter gourd dishes and get a beautiful skin !!

here is recipe

cut onions
cut tomatoes 
cut bitter gourd
cut mushrooms

fry with sesame oils

black beans source  
red chili beans source( tou ban jan)
soy source

mirin to taste 

that's all 

tomatoes and onions make bitter gourd 
mild and sweet!!

My friend shared me some tips for a beautiful life.
I'd like to share with you, too.

I totally agree with it! these tips make our life  simple ,easier , and beautiful.......
I hope you like it .


1 Take a 10-30 minute walk everyday .and while you walk,SMILE.It is the ultimate antidepressant.

2 Sit silence for at least 10 minutes each day.

3 When you wake up in the morning, Pray to ask God’s guidance for your purpose, today.

4 Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.

Drink green tea and plenty of water. Eat blueberries, broccoli, and almonds.

Try to make at least three people smile each day.

Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires, issues of the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.

Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a college kid with a maxed out charge card.

 Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.

10 Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Forgive them for everything !

11 Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

12 You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

13 Make peace with your past so it won’t spoil the present.

14 Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

15 No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

16 Frame every so-called disaster with these words: ‘In five years, will this matter?

17  Help the needy, Be generous ! Be a ‘Giver’ not a ‘Taker’

18 What other people think of you is none of your business.

19 Time heals everything.

20 However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

21 Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.

23 Each night before you go to bed ,Pray to God and Be thankful for what you’ll accomplish, today !

24 Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.

25 Share this to everyone on your list to help them lead a happier life…!!!!

Japanese vegetarian pasta

I  sometimes make  this pasta  for lunch .

I use  plenty of grated japanese white radish.

Grated radish is really good for detoxifying our body.

 It's cleanses the body ,so this is usually part of our meal and I usually serve this to my husband especially when he drank a lot or ate so much meat.
 As for me, I usually eat  grated radish after having dairy products.

here is recipe

organic wholewheat pasta 

japanese UME plum (homemade is the best! 
it should be not sweet one)

japanese ooba (aojiso) shred into small pieces 

baked japanese mashrooms (simeji)

japanese sesami to taste (to sprinkle)

japanese sesami oil to taste

seaweed (cut into small pieces and sprinkle)

soy source to taste

place boiled  pasta on plate and
put everything  on it.
that's all . bon appétit !!

Vegetarian Hot Pot @ Ling zhi vegetarian

This was my  first visit to  Ling Zhi vegetarian restaurant and It was much better than I expected.

They offer buffet style hot pot and there's plenty of veggies  and you can eat all you can  .
My friend and I enjoyed a variety of vegetables and veggie dumplings which were really tasty !

Actually I visited fine dining  hot pot restaurant before in Singapore, but they used a lot of MSG . So usually, after eating, I felt sick and dizzy.
So, I avoided hot pot restaurant since then because I'm scared about hot pot. But now that I have tried Ling Zhi restaurant, I had a different impression about hotpot. They don't seem to use MSG  or if they use,it must be in a  small amount, because  I didn't get any  reaction after eating.

Healthy and comfortable  veggie hot pot made us feel full and satisfied .

I was excited when I saw a lot of veggies
all you can eat 

The veggies variety is similar to yong tau fu.

                                     we chose harbal soup and clear veggie soup at that night

veggie dumplings are also available .
I love this!!

Amy made hot pot for us .
she is a expert of hot pot! 
she knows how to cook well.
I just followed her.

Ling Zhi restaurant is located at Velocity @Novena Square

Hello !! I'm back to my blog!

Hi there!
I'm back to my blog!!

It seems that I've been away for 1 month!!
TIme flies so fast .

Lately I was  quite busy about starting up my new business.
Yes!!!  Finally I could find a place and I'll open my beauty salon  next month.

It seemed to be difficult to have own space here  because of the high cost of renting .

I couldn't imagine that I have my salon when I started this blog which was  almost two month ago.
I'm really really pleased that I have my own space  singapore which is my favorite city in the world. .

And,today is my 40th!! birthday.
I've sent email my mom to say thank you just now.
I think that birthday is a day for appreciating  for my mom who gave me birth.
And also I just want say thank for everything .

I really appreciate everyone I've ever met and everything I've experienced and It doesn't matter  It was happy  experience or not.
I just thank for everything.

So anyway

I start over my blog again from today.
I'll share about my beauty salon on my next blogs.

For today
Let me introduce my new space.
It's a small space but cosy and  very near Clarke Quay MRT station.
It is located on the second floor of RiverSide Point.

Now my website is still under construction, I'm preparing now.
I'll share information about my website on this blog ASAP.
Looking forward to sharing my new salon with you!!

I made my space nice and cosy for my client.
the greens over the window is pleasant to eyes.
