Lately, had been crazy about avocado. For a month, almost
everyday consume avocado. I love the creamy texture, like the light aroma, enjoy letting the avocado melt in my mouth.

Some surprise, my skin texture and hair improved after consistently consume Avocado.

 I love blending Avocado with milk.  I love eating it raw.  I low to add the avocado into my salads.

Too bad it is rather costly fruit.  Our Local Avocado (difficult to find) ain't taste as good as Australia Avocado. South Africa Avocado is big in size, but the taste is just "so-so" only.

p/s: just dig out this draft which had been kept for some time.  Now isn't avocado season, it is very expensive to eat now. :P better change back to our local fruit.

Stress ? Do Yoga

Stress, is a common word that we face everyday.  We always hear about "Aiyoo... Stress la".  "Too much work, stress", don't know what to eat? stress.  Inflation?? Stress..

What to do whenever we feel stress?

Try some yoga. let me share some tips.

1.  Roll around.
How long have you not rolling on the floor like a little kids? keeps a child like heart, try to roll from back to front, and from front to back. Or roll from left to right, right to left?  Even can roll cross diagonal. try rolling.  I feel good.

2.  Open heart.
Some simple yoga posture like cat-cow pose, or cobra, do it with full awareness of the breathing.Can sooth the nerves system.

3.  Prolong exhalation.
Exhalation is proven can sooth the emotion, our body system.  Try 1:2 breathing.  4 counts inhalation and 8 count exhalation.  Keep the breathing slow, deep and smooth, just focus your attention on the breathing.

4. Ommmm...
Om mantra chanting.  Om is the universal sounds, the vibration resonance with our body and calming us down.  focusing on the word Om can also help us to control our mind from wandering around.

5. "Big Three"
Last but not least, the three "big" poses.  Supported Balasana (child pose), Supta Baddha Konasana (reclining Bound Angle pose) and Viparita Karani (leg up to wall pose).  All these three poses are very restorative.

Just try.

When I was first introduced to yoga, the first impression of yoga to me was just another type of physical exercise that emphasized on stretching and flexibility.  Only people who are flexible can do yoga better.  However, when the time passed by, my perception changed.

I used to mimic instructor’s poses without further understanding. I also used to injure myself due to my lacking of understanding.  However when I practice more and more, I started to enjoy and appreciate the beauty of yoga.  Yoga had improved my health condition, also had corrected my bad posture.

When the journey goes on, I realised that yoga is not only exercise that giving impact to my physical self.  Throughout the practice, I started to have more awareness toward my body.  I learnt the word “be present”. With the breathing in-corporate into the asana, I started to feel calm and peace. Yoga increases my concentration, not only in the asana practice, but also can be applied in my daily life events. Yoga also helps me to handle stress better. There are still a lot more to be explored, including meditation and the philosophy of yoga. Seeking life “enlightenment”?

Yoga changed me, physically, mentally and emotionally.  The change taken place progressively without me realised it.  Yoga to me now is an art of living.  I am still on the journey to explore more on this art of living.

Eeverything that irritates you about others, is your key to understanding yourself.
What angers you in another person is an unhealed aspect of yourself. If you had already resolved that particular issue, you would not be irritated by its reflection back to you.

Visit to Singapore

Had a visit to Singapore this Christmas. Just to visit my ex-roommate. Had been lost touch with her for more then six years.

She has a master degree, but became a house wife after gave birth her first baby boy. And just gave birth the second child - a baby girl this June.

Financially, the family just doing fine. Of course no luxury stuff like she used to buy anymore.

Priority for life : Kids
Center of life: Kids
Talk the most: Kids

Seeing her, I just wonder, can I be a housewife? I guess I know the answer.

Anyhow, I was amazed with her way of carry up the kids.

She always talk to the boy, "ok, 30 more minutes, I am going to switch of the TV"
"Ok, 10 more minutes, we are going out, please get ready"
She always tell the kids what's next before the action, and this will not giving the kids a shock.

Even for the six months baby girl, she will say: "oh oh, gal gal hungry, wait for 5 munites, mummy is preparing dinner" or " Mummy is going to bath you.

Compared to the "Chinese style" of "PARENT HIGH AUTHORITY" style, I really amazed by her way of parenting skill...

Bless you, my friend.

Rock Climbing - belaying II

Kena scold... Need to hold the rope firm, no matter/whatever circumstances, cannot let go the rope... the climber may fall anytime. Even the climber jump, also have to hold the rope firm.

Second note, communication with the climber, communication is importand, never asume that climber know what you think and what you do. Always confirm the next move, like the climber must make sure belayer is ready. Belayer also need to tell the next action like you are going to tighten the rope etc... communicate, communicate and communicate. Never asume.
