I want to appreciate my life by spreading more positive energy to the world. That is the right way to give back to the world.

 

Lavender & Tea Tree Moisturizer

안녕하세요

17 days in the year 2018 has gone and I have been continuing reviewing myself by note down at my Kittypiggy Colourful Life blog. As I am not an adventurous person, it will end up my life is too simple that people will always tell me that my life is very boring.

So I am trying to make a change. In the year of 2018, I want to be more adventurous and try new things. I never had any interest with anything except watching YouTube, reading a novel, listening to music and most important sleep. In the year of 2018, I have found a new interest which is DIY own healthy products. Firstly, I save a lot of money because healthy products are expensive. With some good brands, it will cost me a boom. Secondly, by doing my own products, I able to control the scent that I prefer. Third, life is short, I am enjoying myself with the DIY products.

A few days ago, my husband has tried up again to DIY own moisturizer. This time around, we put few 5 drops of Lavender Essential Oil and 5 drops of Tea Tree Moisturizer.

Why we use Lavender and Tea Tree?

First of all, Lavender scent able to make you more relaxing and calm. Not only that, it can be used for healing purpose too.  There are few benefits of Lavender essential oil as explain in Alternative Day website.

  1. For acne
    • Lavender oil able to penetrate pores to kill bacteria.
  2. For skin lightening 
    • Lavender oil is anti-inflammatory. It helps to reduce redness of the skin and help to restore bright and natural skin tone. When is been used regularly, it may help to reduce dark age spot and other skin discolouration.
  3. For anti-wrinkle
    • Due to Lavender oil is rich in antioxidants, it will be able to protect your skin from damaging free radicals which contributed to your fine lines and wrinkles.
  4. For eczema and psoriasis
    • Lavender oil may help to reduce the itch and irritation caused by psoriasis and it may help with eczema outbreaks.
  5. For sunburn
    • Lavender oil may help to relieve the burning and swelling.
  6. For skin fungus
    • Lavender oil able to kill fungus infection and irritation on the skin.

As for Tea Tree essential oil, we added it in because it has similar benefit as Lavender. So by adding in into our DIY moisturizer, we have a wonderful scent with double benefits from these 2 oils. The moisturizer can be used as a balm ointment as well. I bring the moisturizer around now. Safe me a lot of money on buying expensive hand cream with limited benefit.

I am learning to love myself now. Life is full of colourful scene, be more positive and be happy.

DIY Your Own Natural Moisturizer

안녕하세요

I start practising my Love Rules resolutions. Yesterday night myself and my husband try out something interesting. Remember I was telling you we are planning to have our small business? It will be related to Essential Oil.

Yup, I just started using doTERRA essential oil a few months back and I start to fall in love with essential oil. The best part of it is I can use it without worrying that it will be harmful to my family as this oil is natural where you can be used aromatically, topically and the best part is you can even drink or add into our cooking.

Screen Shot 2018-01-09 at 3.36.03 PM

Yesterday we tried to make our own moisturizer using lavender essential oil. We got the ingredients from doTERRA blog. Very easy and very convenient. The ingredients that you need are:

⅓ cup aloe vera gel (do not use juice or aloe from a plant as the cream won’t whip properly)
2 tablespoons sweet almond oil
2 tablespoons jojoba oil
½ tablespoon beeswax
10 drops Lavender oil

Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan, gently heat the almond and jojoba oils with the beeswax. 
  2. Once melted, transfer your mixture to a deep mixing bowl. Leave to cool for an hour or until the mixture reaches room temperature.
  3. Slowly add the aloe vera gel and Lavender oil as you blend the mixture with a hand blender.
  4. Continue adding aloe until you have reached your desired consistency.
  5. Store in an airtight container and apply to skin liberally.

The below is the final outcome before we mix the essential oil and aloe vera. Forgive us for the colour of the image because we did it at night and the lighting is warm white at our home =)

Somebody is enjoying mixing the Lavender oil and Aloe Vero into the moisturizer.

I normally use doTERRA Fractionated Coconut oil and 2 drops of Lavender oil on my dry skin. Sometimes I find it quite troublesome when travelling because bringing the Fractionated Coconut oil around. Moreover, I am worried that the coconut oil will spill and leave a stain on my bags which it already happens on my Longchamp =(

With this, DIY moisturizer, Is so easy and handy now because I fill them in a 15ml size bottle which is my previous eye cream bottle and I do not have to worried about coconut oil spilt in my bag now. Yea…..

We have opened a Facebook page name “doTERRA Wellness Natural Essential Oil” just to share the products we are selling and also information that we collected. Do like our page for more information.

감사합니다

Love Rules !

안녕하세요

The 1st week of January 2018 has ended and today start the second week of the January. On Saturday the whole day, I was having company conference event to kick-start the year 2018. This year, our company will be focusing more on innovation and customer relationship. Is a full day conference from 8.00am to 8.00pm. Too many information flowing and I am trying to absorb all. After the 4th speaker, I started to lost concentration and there is where my old habit, taking photos. Took a picture of my Benjamin and Microsoft Cloud plushie. This is to avoid I fall asleep. Just wanted to share the image because is cute =)

 img_3312

In the year 2018, I will want to focus more on healthy living and healthy relationship. Today, I was reading an article from Health & Nutrition magazine, January 2018. They are discussing Love Rules Resolutions as listed below. I take this chance to review the Love Rules Resolutions for myself.

1. Spend More Time Actually Being Together

-Put all your digital accessories aside and really spend time together, talk to each other and have some little love chat. I think we have not been doing this well as we both are always in our digital life.

2. Be In The Moment

– When we are together, we always got this little problem where we are worried about future. He is planning for his own small business plan and normally there will be a concern about our future planning where it will result in a little de-motivation mood. I will always encourage him not to have negative thought because it will stop him from moving to a bigger plan. I will prefer we enjoy whatever we have at this moment because time flies, we will never go back the same day as today.

3. Kick Off An Aventure, TOGETHER

– This is the resolution that I really wanted to start this year because we both hardly go out together and we hardly sign up for any adventurous activity. The problem with both of us is that we do not like noisy and crowded places. That is why we will always end up staying at home. We really need to start doing something new every month.

4. Turn Arguments Into Conversation Rather Than Competitions

– That is why many couples will end with break-up /divorced if is long term because of Ego, both wanted to be the winner. For this, I think we both are doing well, normally I will try to walk away first when the “pot” is still hot, once the “pot” has cool down, we will discuss the matters that arise that also lead to arguments.

5. Quit The Blame Game

– Yes. I am taking this resolution very seriously now. I have been with my husband for 11 years before I decided to marry him. Of course, along with the journey, I did try to change him and sometimes, I do blame him for not being caring and detail. Now, after I get myself involve with Master Sun, The Superlife Secret Codes, I learn to say the word “I” instead of “You”. I still learning and trying to change my mindset and my approach. Still trying hard and I hope things will change later future.

6. Think Positive

– Every time when things do not go the way I wanted, I will sometimes get frustrated and end up I will be absorbing negative energy. Most of the time it will also be ended up with arguments and we both will asleep in an angry mood. So for this resolution, we are trying very hard now.

7. Make A Compromise

– Compromising! The most challenging resolution for partners because we all wanted things to be in our own way. Again, I still trying very hard. Like what Master Sun always say, before you want your partner to change, we have to look back on ourself first. Change our bad habit first and subsequently your partner will follow to suit you as well.

8. Keep The Third Party Out

 – This resolution I think I am doing quite well. Both our parents respect our privacy and they will not interfere in our personal lives. Thanks to our lovely parents, that is why we can be together for 11 years and more years to come.

9. Make Time For Sex

– Alright, this resolution. I can only say, Yes, we will improve it and make time for this. As usual, busy life, with tired work task and end up not in the mood. Sometimes, we do have this problem.

So, out of 9, I think I am only good at resolution 4. The other 8 resolutions, I guess I will still need to improve and adapt the habit into my daily life in order to have a happy relationship with my husband because we still have a long way to go. Maybe I should set a dateline to review myself again =)

Souvenirs From Taiwan

안녕하세요

There is a saying that “when we focus on our gratitude, the tide of disappointment goes out and the tide of love rushes in”  Nothing is more important than being Love.

Image result for love and gratitude quotes

My brother just comes back from his Taiwan trip and he brought back a lot of souvenirs. Yesterday I was on leave because I bring my dad for an interview for US Visa application. Thereafter, we went back home to have breakfast together. I feel very grateful to have a happy and lovely family.

He bought back a lot of snacks from Taiwan. All of us enjoy the moment of family bonding. Is just a simple souvenirs but we all loved it. I notice one thing, The packaging of the Taiwan products is very colourful, cheerful and sweet. When you see the packaging you will feel happy. I like the Taro Cake packaging. Is full of the cartoon at the box. So cute.

As usual, when we are travelling, we will not forget our lovely Money boy boy. Money boy got his new year cloth. He is enjoying his new year apparel where come all the way from Taiwan.

I just love my brother so much, he knows I am a Starbucks collector. He bought me the Starbucks Taiwan mugs as my souvenir. He also bought a lucky charm for my husband. We decided to hang it in our room.

Sometimes nothing is more important than family love. We are too busy complaining about our life until we overlook how lucky we are actually. Be grateful and appreciate everything that we have.

사랑과 감사

Wonderful Christmas Celebration in Year 2017

안녕하세요

Merry Christmas everyone! Today is boxing day so everyone has an additional day of Christmas Celebration. Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas celebration with your loved one.

This year Christmas, I have lots of fun and is definitely a memorable one. It is also our 1st-month anniversary as a husband & wife. We celebrate our Christmas earlier. I bought a Gold Class ticket for Star Wars movie for his Christmas present. This little old boy enjoys his Christmas present so much because is his favourite movie.

The next day, I bring my mom to One Utama to just have casual shopping as I was on leave. After married, I am so not used to staying away from my parents. I miss them so much. Thank god we are not staying very far, is just like 15 minutes away. I really appreciate my father in law and mother in law because they live in a modern thinking lifestyle, they allow me to go back anytime if I want to. They both respect our privacy. My mother in law always tells me, if we have our own plan just inform her earlier then she will arrange her own plan with my father in law. Of course, currently I still not use to it with my new family even though me and my husband have been together for 11 years. I believe I will settle down in a few more months because I have a great in-law that makes me feel warm.

So, while window shopping with my mom, Take the opportunity to snap One Utama Christmas decorations. This year One Utama decorations are full of white cloud and snow. Is simple yet sweet. Life can be simple as long as is full of sweet memory.

Thereafter few days, my office has Christmas celebrations. I have a wonderful gathering with my office colleague as I am based at the site, so I hardly go into office headquarter. So we manage to have a great time and great food and great dessert.

On the actual of Christmas, we have a family one day trip to Genting Highland. Mommy is complaining that she hasn’t been Genting for 10 over years. So we decided to bring her up for a day trip. Although there aren’t many activities up there because the theme park is closed for renovation but we manage to experience the Christmas feel in First World Hotel. Snoopy is in Genting Highland! Genting has this theme which is “Tour The World With Snoopy”. This “tour” started on 1st November 2017 until 1st January 2018. I feel so lucky we manage to visit the “tour” before it ends.

They have this 3D SkySymphony show at the certain timing. I and my husband managed to enjoy the show while waiting for my parents to finish their Casino experience. Is so nice and cute and also very beautiful. I feel so lucky.

After the lovely Snoopy world tour end, we visited Premium outlet because I wanted to buy a Kipling backpack as my Cath Kidston backpack has torn off. I will be travelling to Singapore next year end of January to attend Anthony Robbins talk. So in order to have a durable and light backpack, Kipling is the best choice. Kipling at Premium outlet having sales, they have 25% off and on top of the 25%, you will enjoy additional 20% discount. So original price for my backpack is RM769.00. So after discount is RM464.40. I love my pink monkey =P. The pencil box is cheaper, They have 40% discount and on top of the 40%, you will enjoy additional 20% discount. So original price is RM169.00 so after discount is RM81.12. Christmas present for myself.

img_3131

So we went back home with sweet memory, feeling happy and loved. Of course, everybody is very tired especially my brother because not only he is having bad cold flu, he has to drive all of us and when we are on the way back, we were stuck in bad traffic. Holiday tour is also a bad traffic day because when the holiday ends, everybody is travelling back too.

I fully utilise my 2017 Christmas. Filled up the Christmas with full of love. Not only that, I also have additional Christmas present from my mommy and daddy. Souvenir from Thailand. Starbucks Christmas tumbler and Thailand version tumbler. This year Thailand has this promotion where the customer who purchase 2 tumblers and will get a free Christmas bag. So mommy knows I am a Starbucks collector, so she bought 2 tumblers for me. Love you, mommy.

img_3073

They will always complain that I have too many Hello Kitty around. However, parents love. Whenever they go, they will still buy Hello Kitty merchandise for me. Hello Kitty Zipper storage bags and also Mister Donut drinks container.

img_3074

I love the zipper storage bags and each size has 2 designs.

img_3078

5 more days to go and 2018 will arrive. I tell myself that my 2018 resolutions will be never complained about how bad my life is because my life is great, be grateful for everything I have, live with objectives and continue finding my passion. Life is beautiful and I am lucky that I have a life full of love and peace.

Happy holiday~~ #Love&Peace

Yes, We Are Married!

안녕하세요

Have been missing for few months because of busy preparing for my big day. Wedding preparation is seriously crazy. Is so tiring but of course is a fun day too. Celebrating our big day with our beloved family and very close friend.

25th November 2017, there is where I begin my new journey, have my own new family. To be a good wife. 02nd October 2006, is where we started our love story. We have gone through a lot of things. Happiness and sadness. Of course, nothing is perfect, we both have our own weaknesses but the most important is we learn to compromise, learn to communicate with each other and we learn to be open to each other. There is still a lot of things to learn, so we both are constantly learning.

We did not have a very huge and grand wedding ceremony and dinner, but we have a very warm and full of love ceremony and dinner. 27 tables that consist of both side family and very very close friends. We really appreciate all of them taking their precious time off to celebrate our big day.

Of course, the day will not be smooth and success without our videographer, Gary & Alvin from Armadale Weddings. Our photographer Hanz from Omelette and our driver of the day Khoo from Rent a VW Kombi or Bettle in Malaysia. I can’t wait to see our video and also our photos capture on the day. As for our driver Khoo, we both seriously appreciate your patient and time. Never rush us while we took photo with the lovely car.

Hanz has posted some photos on his Facebook page. Hope to see more soon.

Glass Bottle For Essential Oil Drinks

안녕하세요

I am new in essential oil and I am also learning how to use essential oil. Not only for myself but also to help people who needed. So, I have been attending courses and also doing a lot of research about essential usage.

I have been consuming Lemon essential oil in my drinks. Earlier days, I was using Tupperware plastic bottle. Then I saw this article from Glasstic Water Bottle that undiluted essential oils can eat through plastic and even diluted oils will degrade plastics over time.

So recently BROS has launched their new products which are BROS VASO. This bottle is glass bottle with varieties design and sizes. You can find it at One Utama Parkson and they are having a promotion with 10% discount. The 400ml cost RM43.90 and the 550ml cost RM45.90. The 630ml, I did not see the price because I was rushing off. If purchase 2 bottles, you will get a free pouch for the bottle. If not, you also can purchase the pouch with the cost of RM15.90 for the small pouch and RM17.90 for the big pouch. There isn’t any discount for the pouch.

I bought the 400ml with fairy tale design because the 550ml is a bit bulky for me and if I am travelling around, it will be good if I can bring along with my essential oil drinks. So I start my Wednesday morning with healthy orange juice with my doTERRA lemon in my juice.

Have a great day..

Sincerity

안녕하세요

Didn’t realise I have been missing for a month from blogging. I was lost again. Lost in direction and feeling very down with everything. So it took me a while to stand up again to ignore all the negative energy. I try to do meditation by doing self-reflection. I am also training my E.Q to be stronger so that I will not be influenced by negative energy.

Today while I am driving to work, I was thinking about this word which is “Sincerity”. How do I identify who is sincere to me or who is using me for their own benefit? Those people who are always smiling at me, are they sincere or they are just waiting for a good time to push me down. Then I was going thru some research, I found this interesting cartoons with a tittle of Sincerity Cartoons from Cartoon Stock.

When I was going thru, I was laughing because Cartoon Stock illustrates the current world situation. Humans are a selfish creature. Only a minimal of the population will treat people sincerely. What you see and hear sometimes might not be sincerely from the speaker.  The below cartoon stated clearly that the girl is “sincerely” trying to shut the audience and ask them to go away. If you lazy to comfort negative people, you will just prepare the thing needed to pacify them. This is just to avoid unnecessary thing to happen.

Sincerity Cartoon

Another cartoon that really attracts my attention is the below cartoon. This is so true. Everyone is giving you feigned sincerity greetings. That is why this kind of greeting cards sold out faster than genuine emotions greetings.

Sincerity Cartoon (2)

I will never understand why some people have that kind of bad intentions. I think they are not afraid of Karma. They are not, but I am. That is why I always ensure whatever I do is always from my heart. People who appreciate me, they will get my sincere treatment, people who are not, I will eliminate them by avoiding them.

Thanks to Cartoon Stock. You make my Monday smile.
