Butterfly Health and Wellness Workshop 2019

Thanks to The Butterfly Project Malaysia. I was glad to receive the invitation to pamper myself, a mini short getaway for body, mind and soul in this Butterfly Health and Wellness Workshop!

The event was started of with the welcoming speech and the organiser and Jessica , the PR manager from Hilton KL.

Not sure when is my lass time to take photo with Tammy. She looks absolutely captivating ever since she work hard to shake off some weight. 

First session: DIY Vegan Beauty Mask

For our first kick start, we were arranged to make our mask. A Clay Mask. with naturally plant based ingredients. Wha'ts the best part? YOu get to customise the ingredients you would like to add to your DIY clay mask!

SO the idea of making the clay mask is very easy only.  Our guru of the day, Ms Bavani from Naturally Handmade had prepared us a base clay (Kaolin Clay) in the little glass bottle. All we need to do is just to add in another type of our chosen clay.

I had chosen the Red Clay because Red clay purifies, cleanses and removes toxins and dirt. In short, it is ideal for weekly detoxifying face and body masks.

Then we were to choose another superfood powder from the many options given. So I had chosen Pomegranate Powder and Aloe Vera Powder. Both providing moisture in the skin and Aloe Vera other than soothing and cooling properties, it also rich in antioxidants.

If you would like to further know about Ms Bavani, she is actually a vegan beauty care maker! Under her magic hand, she has created several vegan beauty care products which are quite useful in our daily life!

Check out her instagram here. She would organise some vegan beauty workshop occasionally too!

Me and the founder of this vegan beauty care maker! Ms Bavani! She does sell her vegan products too!

Think about essential oils, tea tree oil, lavender, etc. Shea butter. She is passionate and therefore knwoledgable on the functions and uses of the various vegan ingredients you can name of!

Second session: Aromatheraphy Oil Blending Workshop

LIfe is full bittersweet. and at one point, the city hustler will resort to aromatherapy as a mean to calm down our exhausted body , mind and soul. and we resort to Essential Oil for this! 

Do you know about Signature Market? 
Signature Market is an online platform selling superfoods, vegan food! Sounds familiar but not sure? 

DOes this logo look familiar to you? It is the super food that you will see in Watson. 

Aside from selling superfood. Signature Market also has this series known as Plant Origins , selling Essential Oil, but have since expand their range to include personal care products such as hand soaps and body washes. 

The session started with Dashindra from Signature Market introduce us the plants origin and the various uses of essential oils. 

Prior to that, I already know the existence of essential oils. I know essential oils can be quite expensive. 

Upon browsing through Signature Market site, I found out that their essential oils are actually quite economic. Click here to see. 

Guideline on the selection to blend your favourite essential oils. 

Aromatherapist Maple at work. Creating a rollover that I can put it in my handbag and bring it anywhere! Can apply on my face and work as antiseptic too! 

My choice of blending oil

and the outcome. Look like perfume har~~

Was thinking how to use essential oil, so I bought the essential oils together with a free diffuser during their 10.10 sales! 

On the side note, I bought their body washer, cause it smells like it can calm your soul. So after showering with it, you can rest in peace. (JK). I mean I bought it cause it smells so soothing and calming. The body wash was infused with variant types of essential oils yet manage to clean our body.

Third Session: Self Care session

I also the little kit bag! 

Minnie Chang had prepared a little journalising kit for us. Due to insufficient time, we cant finish the whole session, but she manages to make the ambience so calm, and everybody got to take time to listen to our inner voice.....

Be a master Chef with a great condiment!

Ever since moving into new house, my husband and I would always cook! It feels so good to be able to cook by ourselves, managing the ingredient from raw to delicious meal. It's like after you put on a magical twist , like cutting, slicing, seasoning, frying above the fire. and suddenly everything else turns out so nicely! 

Thanks to Circuit Communication. I recently got introduced to a failure- proof condiment called "Rasa Sifu"!  

Rasa Sifu contains just the right proportion of basic seasoning, oyster flavoured sauce, well-sautéd garlic and onion, and other special ingredients to enhance your cooking with that special wok-taste and oyster sweetness. 

Tried and tested! Put no salt and osyter sauce, yet it taste pleasantly flavourful  and it tastes "crisp" to me! 

There is a say "Lure your husband's heart through his stomach" , and I did this with slight effort (as I still need to chop vegetables, dice the garlic, capsicum and etc). however, in terms of flavour, I could effortlessly making it very appealing, you cant stop savouring it once you try it!

Now I understand 
why the name "Rasa Sifu" 

I can easily smell the wok hei (read in cantonese way) or the "wok taste" that is happened in tradisional chinese cooking .

Fried Mixed Vegetables simple recipe! 
Ingredients needed:
(Put whatever vegetables you have. )

For me, I used
Lettuce (because I can't find broccoli)
Sweet Corn
Osyter Mushroom (Any mushroom will do)

Pour oil, Saute the garlic first. Then pour the hardest vege first. In this case, I pour the sweet corn first, after that capsicum.

Stir fry until the vege inside with slightly tender. then pour in osyster mushroom, and tomato. pour a little of boiling water mix with starch powder.

Lastly, pour in the condiment. Normally without Rasa Sifu, I will need to seasoning with salt and osyter sauce, soy sauce separately. But now with Rasa Sifu, I no need to worry if it is bland or not. In additional, it is a failure proof move! with a tinge of wok taste, making you feel like a Sifu.

You would eat it non-stop, can't stop praising yourself for being able to cook such as delicious meal, and then you realised that you already finish the whole meal. 

Now, it is ready to serve! 

A plate of colourful, wonderfully crafted stir fried vegetable is done! 

On the side note: Out of curiosity, I put a spoon of Rasa Sifu into the ABC soup that I cooked the other day, it is flavourful, but the wok taste makes it feel the entire soup has the wok taste. So, Rasa Sifu is the condiment to be put when you want to have a taste of "wok taste" , or when you put salt and oyster sauce separately. 

Rasa Sifu is being sold in  supermarkets, hypermarkets, grocery stores and convenience stores around you.  It is  available in 20g, 100g and 300g packs.

Go try it! You will hardly fail in making delicious meal and never stop praising yourself for cooking such a "sophisticated" dish that is almost similar to experienced chef!

#23082019 To me

你说, 对吗? 

今天去了一间Gym 泡了Jacuzzi, 很舒服。 无意间看到告示牌上写了

Do not use the facilities if you have any wound on your skin.

看了这句话顿时觉得很感恩 因为我本身有皮肤敏感, 所以曾经试过一年365天,12月里面, 有六个月身体皮肤表面都有大大小小的伤口, 尤其是手掌心。

顿时觉得原来健康就是那么好 可以做很多即使不是生病很严重的人, 但是还是有身体敏感, 皮肤敏感的人能做的事情。

告示牌上还写着, 孕妇,高血压,心脏病的人也不能用Jaccuzi and steam room. 突然间觉得原来健康是多么的难能可贵, 一点都不理所当然

原来在生活的时候, 很多benchmark很低的东西(如照顾健康)还是有许多人是没有选择的达不到。

原来健康真的是本钱。(就是原来健康可以创造很多价值) 原来健康的时候可以做的东西有很多很多, 多到稍微有一点点不健康的人都做不到。

原来我们真的应该好好照顾健康, 因为只有健康时,才能做到很多不健康时可以作得东西(如跑步, 安稳的睡觉, 大吃大喝, 熬夜,专心的思考等等)

所以我们人生如果要发挥认识最大的价值,就是在年轻的时候, 就是在我们有思考能力, 有行动力的时候。

每个人生阶段其实都有其不同阶段时候的价值 任何一个阶段都盖不了其他阶段的风头。

原来只要我们好好的享受每一个人生阶段, 活在当下, 爱自己, 不要每次玩手机,玩到自己要做什么都不知道。 其实是一个很难得的Moment

原来日常生活中的学习还包括多观察,然后思考。 为什么以前没有人告诉我这些道理?

原来我们的人生不能坐着等答案, Just like waiting for durian runtuh.

原来我们觉得很理所当然的东西, 其实没有很理所当然。

原来用心付出可以有成正比的回报。 (还有一句讲做 你用力, 别人不一定看到;但是只要你用心,别人一定感觉得到)

原来只要有努力+ dedication 就会有result

原来要有时间就要高度自律, 不要每次browse social media. 看一些有的没的。




以后随着时间过去, 身体的某些功能不能像年轻时那般操作, 也请珍惜你当下拥有的东西。
因为我们的人生会在某一个时间点, 某一个空间发挥到一些功能, 然后也发挥不到一些功能。

在有能力的时候, 努力的创造自己当下拥有的最大价值。

原来他们说“ 该努力的时候, 千万不要放逸”是这个意思。

原来很多时候别人没有告诉我们的东西, 其实是要自己去体验, 自己去找答案。
