Eat Clean [Mange proprement, Comer limpio]

 
  
Good Day, Beautiful People!

I’m NOT here to condemn anyone lifestyle or eating habit. Is all about what you want to embrace in your life? What is your priority? I’m not 100% there. Sometimes, I’ve indulgence as I’m a real foodie after all. I’m always a work in progress towards my goals and aims in getting the fullest out of life.

Often I ask myself, most people don’t care of what they eat until their health are compromised. Guilty charged, writer included. I had a major health scare 2013 that make me review my life. Ask myself truthfully, what changes must I make as God graciously give me second chance of life that I’m not going to waste it!  I want to live my life purposefully, consciously and intentionally not leaving to fate or my stupid choices or whatever life take over. 

These are some of my little self reminder:

  
  
  

Sharing one of my own favourite fruits and vegetables juicing recipe in the morning. I prepare the chopped vegetables and fruits the night before and put them in the blender, keep it in the fridge. Ready to juice the next morning.

  
Choose no GMO, chemical free and organic if you can. If budget constraint, or the preferred options not available soak your vegetables and fruits in 1 part vinegar and 2 parts water and sea salt for 15mins to wash off surface dirt and chemical. Better still grow some green if you can like some of my mates that have green thumbs.

Ingredients:

Garlic 1 clove

Ginger zest or grate 1tsp

Flaxseed  1 tsp

Omega 3  1-2 capsules

Beet 1 small or 1/2 big

Celery 1 stick

Blueberries or mix berries 1 small handful

Carrot 1

Chia seeds 1 tsp

Mint  a few leaves

Basil a few leaves

Parsley a few leaves

Lemon juice 1 tsp

Apple Cider Vinegar  1 tsp

Manuka or raw organic Honey 1 tsp

Coconut or organic yoghurt  1-2 tbs

Almond or Coconut or any milk 150ml

Water 150ml

Blend and drink up! 

Hope you give it a go!  Enjoy, Bon appétit! 

I leave the best for last… Can’t do life without humour.

Stay Strong Paris [rester forts Paris]

   
   

Good Day, Beautiful People!

I’m saddened by the morning news that once again one of my favourite city, City of Lights, Paris, is under attack!  So many innocents died because of terrorism.  Such senseless and gutless act to create havoc, pain and fear in people.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Be strong, stay strong. May the real God, Prince of Peace, shine His lights brighter than ever in this darkness. 

Sharing this song with you. May it brings some comfort and peace in your heart.

PRINCE OF PEACE

My heart a storm, clouds raging deep within

The Prince of peace came bursting through the wind

The violent sky held its breath

And in Your light I found rest

Tearing through the night
Riding on the storm

Staring down the fight

My eyes found Yours

Shining like the sun

Striding through my fear

The Prince of peace

Met me there

You heard my prayer
Hope like the sun, light piercing through the dark
The Prince of peace came and broke into my heart

The violent cross, the empty grave

And in Your light I found grace

Tearing through the night
Riding on the storm

Staring down the fight

My eyes found Yours

Shining like the sun

Striding through my fear

The Prince of peace

Met me there

You’re always there
And You hear my prayer

Your love surrounds me 
When my thoughts wage war

When night screams terror

There Your voice will roar

Come death or shadow

God I know Your light will meet me there

When fear comes knocking
There You’ll be my guard

When day breeds trouble

There You’ll hold my heart

Come storm or battle

God I know Your peace will meet me there

(Again and again)
Oh, be still my heart

I know that You are God

Oh fear no evil

For I know You are here

And my soul will know Your love surrounds me 
When my thoughts wage war

When night screams terror

There Your voice will roar

Come death or shadow

God I know Your light will meet me there

And my soul will know
When fear comes knocking

There You’ll be my guard

When day breeds trouble

There You’ll hold my heart

Come storm or battle

God I know Your peace will meet me there

Oh, be still my heart
And my soul will ever know that You are God

And You heard my prayer

   

    
 

  

   
 
This is to demonstrate the solidarity  with the French in the wake of the siege in Paris. 

Pray for world, pray that countries leaders to have wisdom and courage in fighting ISIS and radical Islam. Pray for justice. Pray for the people who are affected by this tragedy.  Muslim leaders need to make a stand and fight radical Islam. Stop pussyfooting. 

Critical Thinking: @AngelaSChua: Treat your country like your home. You don’t invite evil people to your home why you allow evil people in your country! Common sense, Screen!

  
  
In one day, so many tragedies happened. We can feel helpless and dampen our spirits. The best thing you can do is pray for peace for the countries and people affected.

There are wisdom to be learnt: Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses. – Proverbs10:12

Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that. – Martin Luther King Jr.

We Remember [nous nous souvenons, recordamos, noi ricordiamo, 我们记得]

   
 

Good Day, Beautiful People! 
Wow! Last year this time, I wrote about Rememberance Day!  Seems not long ago, yet a year has come to pass.

Today, is Rememberance Day, Memorial Day, we take time to honour and remember the daily Heroes who sacrificed to protect our country and the people who are currently serving in the arm forces. I am thankful for the ongoing service men and women for keeping  our borders safe. Light a candle and buy a poppy fundraising souvenir to contribute to support the Appeals.

    The living owe it to those who no longer can speak or tell their story for them. – Czeslow Milosz from “The Issa Valley”

    Seven Bridges Walk

      
    Good Day, Beautiful People! 

    October is flying too fast for me. Work front is demanding and not forgetting all the commitments and social engagements. Too many things to do and have enough time for everything as usual.

    Here October we try to create all cancer awareness, especially pink ribbon. Some call me crazy to sign up for 27km, seven bridges walk for Cancer Council. I never walked that kind of distance before. It was my very first try.  Last year I did city to surf which 14km run for those who already following me  last year knew this. There are a few reasons why I do this walk. It is my personal healing journey, to raise awareness, fundraising, in rememberance of loved ones who fought cancer and migrated to heaven and friends that went through cancer hell and back. Some still awaiting for God’s miracle for their lives.

    Every time, I sign up for something tremendous or enormous, something will play up or the enemy will try to create a havoc in order to get you. A bit anxious since I signed up, my body was not 100% again. I had bad hayfever, sinusitis and allergy itchy cough. Normally, I’m a person who love to embrace change, a challenge and try new things. Life is too short to do the same old things.

    Well, I’m determined to finish the daunting 27km long walk. I prepared my heart and body for the big day, 25th October 2015.  This fundraiser event is hosted by Cancer Council NSW yearly to raise money for research and create awareness for different cancers. They’re celebrating 10th anniversary for seven bridges walk this year which is pretty special. 

    Some of the word I meditate:

    I can do all this through Him who gives me strength. – Phil4:13

    Be strong and courageous. – Deut31:6

    I will never leave you nor forsake you. – Heb13:5

    For nothing is impossible with God. – Lk1:37 

    The fact about long walk is not only great to train your mind, body and spirit to the next level of good positive thinking, endurance, perseverance, determination, attitude of “DONT GIVE UP!”and toughen your body. It also helps you to clear your mind of all the garbage, detox your mind and focus on the things that really matter.

    The map of the 27km 7 bridges walk:

    So pleased to let you know I did it and complete it with my walking buddy and a few other friends. There is a will, there is a way!  By the way, age is not the limit. As I have witnessed kids as young as seven and silver hair seniors in their seventies or eighties doing it and complete the walk.  Not forgetting,  moms and bubs with prams and people who are physically challenged who managed to do this walk! 

    I proud to show you some photos I’ve taken on the walk.
