Since young I learnt that letting children go recite scripture and classical poems and stories inculcate the inner appreciation, ability to sit still and focus better in children.
I love reading poems since young I felt they were so beautifully done even though I do not entirely understand the message behind it.
We also let our children to attend scripture reciting classes from the Four Classics (from Confucius) and other classics passed down by the wise ones in the past. They learn to recite passages from The Great Learning, Analects, Di Zi Gui, and many more.
During their annual assessment, they are encouraged to bring a handmade gift to exchange with other students from class reciting classes all over the places in Malaysia.
We even have our Malay and Indian friends sending their children for such classes and there is a mini Tang Yuan competition whereby we even have Curry Tang Yuan invented by our dear Indian friends..

It's coming to year end..it's time to reflect and contemplate:
1. What are the awesome things we have managed to accomplished(give ourselves a pat and celebrate the victories 🍷 )
2. What are the challenges we managed to triumphed (yey 🙌 a confidence booster and reinforcement when we have doubts on ourselves in the future that yes, we have done it and we can definitely do it again this time! 💪)?
3. What are the areas of improvement we wish to do for the coming year 🙏❤ ?
It has been my annual ritual to do this reflection and aspirations settings, how many of you do the same too? 🙋
I find that getting to know ourselves better is one great way to learn what are the areas of improvement we could to make in our life...no matter in what career or role we are playing in life ... whether is building your business or climbing corporate ladder or being a full-time mom/dad.
And when I learnt about the book on Full Spectrum Success and how learning about our Color Personality type and also on the people around us makes communicating with others so much more effective...besides getting to know our pitfalls and strength being a Red, Yellow, Blue and Green.
So give Color Personality test 2.0(yes this is a newer version that the one I shared earlier!) a try. You will be surprised to find out some unknown traits about yourself which is awesome for self-improvement and goal setting for the coming year 👍
Cheers to a good ending for 2017 and welcome the awesome 2018!

Shopping 🛒 for books is one of my most preferred retail therapy much to the dismay of DH as we often ran out of place to store them thus he suggested ebooks..but there's nothing like holding and flipping through a book and doing a bedtime routine with "real books"..
Look at the packaging or cover of the books these days..I saw one pizza-making book with pizza 🍕 box wrapping and a 🍕-like cover..how creative!
And check out this 👜 handbag..nope...wait it's a book! 😂

I have been trying to include healthy drinks for my family..making juice with slow juicer, making 🍋 lemonade etc..and I discovered a yummy and full of probiotic goodness drink called water kefir when I was attending an intensive course organised by Center of Aromatherapy Research and Education. My health-conscious classmates offered me this water kefir drink that she made herself and wow 😮 it really taste great 👍 fizzy like soda water + enzyme ..
And she's so kind to offer me the recipe and her kefir grains so that got me started to make my healthy water kefir for my family..
I have tried making blueberries water kefir, passion fruit, ginger and lemongrass..and so far the family favourites is passion fruit ..and guess what I heard during one of the beauty talk? Passion fruit is great for whitening 😃
Double goodness of probiotic and skincare 😉
I am praying, talking and cheering my kefir grains so that it could multiply faster and I get to share my extra kefir grains with others who like to improve their gut health with this yummy probiotics drink 🍷
If your family members loved drinking soft drinks and soda water..this is a yummy and healthier alternatives for them in replace with their sugary drink. Try it and you won't regret it.
There are many water or milk kefir support group in FB where you can find many generous donors of kefir grains.
Do you know how much does a glass of water drink cost when you order at some health food cafe? The price starts at MYR9.90 per cup 🙂 mine cost lesser ..I just bought a week worth of passion fruit at MYR10 that will last me a week for my family members 😉...a drink they now called it "Yummy/Fizzy drink"

I heard about this organic cafe opening at Bangsar South and finally ordered a dinner set during a late-night work.
Yummy passion fruit drinks and tofu burger with salad with vinegar. Very nice and appetising combo set 👍
Glad to find healthier choices around instead of opting for fast/instant food etc ..

For the past few days, my daughter who was having exam; has been complaining that her eyes are pain each time she woke up. Although applying Frankincense mist helps her, the pain just reoccur the next morning.
Then, I tried to find the root cause of her eye pain and voila! Besides having eye pain, she also said that her nose was blocked and she was having sniffles..
And I found out that sinuses congestion 🤧can also cause puffy, swollen eyes as well as eye pain. I found a quick recipe for her to try before sending her to school:
☝️What you need
* 2 drops eucalyptus or peppermint
* 2 drops lavender
* Soft microfiber cloth
* Bowl filled with ½ cup of ice cold water
1. Fill a bowl with ½ cup of ice cold water. You can even add ice cubes.
2. Now add the essential oils and stir well with the washcloth.
3. After the cloth is saturated, wring it out and fold it into a rectangle.
4. Hold it to your head for some time.
5. Keep repeating the steps until relief is felt.
Indeed, after following the above steps, swollen eyes no more and eye pain is gone too!
Awesome! Learnt another good use of essential oil and can't wait to share with all of you.
If you or your family and friends experience eye pain as well, try check out the root cause and see which safe and natural recipes using essential oils can help to ease the condition.
Credit the recipe to this website https://www.themiracleofessentialoils.com/essential-oils-for-eye-pain/?m
Grateful for all the kind soul who shared generously on these recipes 🙏

X’Mas comes early for me this year when I set my eyes on this X’Mas promo set from Young Living Malaysia! It comes with a free Rose Gold 8-oils eo pouch!
I have been using geranium almost daily for my sagging/ reducing in size and much overworked precious assets (ask any mommy who breastfeed their babies; many would have this “after effects” after they weaned their child) as well as for hormone balancing (apply at my underarm) as I hope to age gracefully...never too early to start my self-care PMS routine as I have seen how badly some women felt as they hit their mid-forties to fifties...
I have also been using Endoflex for my adrenal fatigue symptoms, this is one of the oil that came up to me when I had my emotional release class.
And..I have also heard a lot about Lady Sclareol, very very nice smell which I wanna put it in my diffuser necklace ️ ..come near me if you like to check out the scent of course it’s not just nice-smelling oils..these therapeutic grade essential oils have wholesome of benefits:
Some info on the oils in the X’Mas promo set:
GIFTS FOR THE LADIES
Lady Sclareol EO Blend
This EO blend is typically known for its phytoestrogen content, but it also contains EOs that are calming, grounding and balancing. It helps to set good emotions and mood, very suited as daily perfume for women. This blend contains Coriander, Geranium, Vetiver, Orange, Clary Sage, Bergamot, Ylang Ylang, Sandalwood, Spanish Sage, Jasmine and Idaho Tansy.
This single oil helps to release negative emotions and sets positivity, which explains why it is well suited as daily feminine perfume.
This blend helps to balance the hormones and thyroid and flush the kidneys
Each of us have different hormone levels..
Therapeutic-grade essential oils work to bring the body to balance. If our body needs what is in a particular oil or blend, then it will take what it needs and eliminate the remainder through the urine, feces, saliva, and sweat. This means that we can layer a number of essential oils and/or blends without concern about any “negative impact”. In fact, by using several oils and/or blends, we are giving the body more opportunities to find the exact combination of molecules that it needs.
Here's an easy way to use them
Endoflex: Use 2 drops on thyroid area and another 2 drops on lower abdomen (helps to balance the thyroid and flush the kidneys and liver)- daytime

I am often being asked what I give my children for snacks?
Below is one of the favourite snack choices of my youngest son, ZS who is four now.
Blueberries...when it is in season, it would be on sale at the hyper market like Tesco. However, some parents are concern about the layers of coating on it. So do I, and I love using my Thieves Fruit and Veggie Spray to soak it before serving it for ZS. You would see the whitish color later will be gone after that. This spray is very handy to carry around during travels too so that we can opt for healthier snacks wherever we go.
Interested to know where to get the Thieves Fruit and Veggie Spray? You can get it easily here at http://tinyurl.com/YLMolly, or you can leave me a comment and I am happy to get it for you.
