Benefits of Lemon Honey and Cinnamon Honey

As my wedding date gets nearer, I think it's time for me to pick up some healthy diets and lifestyle to maintain good skin and shape. I read online that there are multiple benefits of drinking warm lemon honey water and warm cinnamon honey water. So I started drinking warm lemon honey water in the morning and warm cinnamon honey water before bed.

Benefits of lemon, honey and cinnamon: 1. Cleanse the system Lemon is effective in flushing out the body waste and helps in detoxification of the body. Honey helps prevent constipation. I've tried it and it's true. Since I started this routine, there's no more constipation for me. 2. Improve immune system Honey and lemon help to improve the immune system, while cinnamon has anti-bacteria properties and can help to fight flu bugs.  3. Balance PH levels Diseases such as cancer thrive well in acidic bodies. Lemon has high content of citric acid, but once in the body, lemon becomes alkaline in nature. Honey and cinnamon has anti-o…

Updates: Concept of our house

An update to the concept of our house.

Living Room
After reading up more on Feng Shui, I realised there are other remedies for direct alignment of main door and windows. So I decided not to build a 屏风 at my entrance. I will instead use the round dining table and a round ceiling lamp above the dining table to slow down the flow of 'chi' in my house.

We will still put a shoe cabinet and a bench near the entrancee. I found these pretty benches sold in Qoo10.


And the fake ceiling of our living room, I want it to be curvy shape at the corners instead of 90 degrees angle corners, because Feng Shui don't like sharp corners. Lol..

Kitchen
For our kitchen, after studying our floor plan, we cannot use the picture I posted in my previous post already la. Our kitchen is rectangular in shape and at the other end, there's a door to the service yard and 2 very ugly panels of windows (one set on each side of the door). The power point and water pipes are already fixed by HDB. So we can …

Toothache!??

Last Friday, I suddenly woke up in the middle of the night because my tooth hurts badly. I started researching what causes toothache and found many reasons such as tooth decay, abscess tooth, gum infection, gingivitis etc. No matter what reason was it, I am afraid of going to the dentist, or worse, my tooth has to be pluck out.

So I immediately went to brush my teeth in the middle of the night hoping that it will become better. Luckily, it was better when I woke up and the pain gradually disappear on Saturday.

But hell! It came back on Sunday! I start to panic liao, and research for home remedies online and saw many people tried putting minced garlic on the affected tooth. They said garlic can kill bacteria and hence, putting minced garlic on the affected tooth will kill the bacteria that cause the infection.

So, I took a clove of garlic and popped into my mouth and chew it with the teeth at the side of my affected tooth. OMG! It was damnnnn painful and burning! After a few minutes, t…

A rough concept of our house..

Recently there're a lot of updates about our Seng Kang BTO on the Facebook page. Some have news from reliable sources that we might be able to receive the letter in Dec or Jan. Many of them have already started sourcing for IDs and shopping for furniture. But we, being in Italy, couldn't do any of these. The most that we can do is to surf Courts and Ikea websites to look for furniture ideas and using the Homestyler program to roughly draw out the plan for our house.

So here's the 2D image of the rough idea we have for our house. We're keeping the renovation simple and splurge on buying beautiful furniture. Living Room
We want a sky blue and white theme for the living room. So we intend to paint one side of the wall sky blue while the other walls remain white color, and to hang a huge painting on the wall as decoration. We should be getting white Sofa and TV console. For the curtains and carpet, I hope I can find sky blue ones. I want to put one or two floor cushion or b…

Roadhouse Grill (Italy Gallarate): Great Deals Thursday and Sunday!

Went to a restaurant called Roadhouse Grill near our house. It has great deals on Thursday and Sunday of the week.

For Sunday Super Deal, they have the All-You-Can-Eat Ribs at 10 Euros (usual price at 14.90 Euros and without the All-You-Can-Eat deal)! Yes! You did not see wrongly, ribs at 10 Euros and you can keep adding because it's All-You-Can-Eat! The ribs come with a side, either steamed potato or fries. With this promo, you could add ribs (not the fries and potato) as and when you want, it will come in half rack for each additional order.

One thing I love about this deal, it is not compulsory for me to order the All-You-Can-Eat Ribs when my hubby ordered it. I can never find such generous deals in Singapore as the restaurants usually will make it compulsory if one of the diners ordered the All-You-Can-Eat deal, his companions will have to order that as well. But here, I ordered salad while my hubby ordered the All-You-Can-Eat Ribs, and we openly shared the ribs. No issues, no…

Our experience at Osservatorio Astronomico, Varese

Hubby booked an appointment with Osservatorio Astronomico (Astronomical Observatory) for a visit on Saturday.

But stupid us got the time wrong and we under-estimated the time required to get to the Observatory. It was already closing when we were there. It took us about half an hour to drive up the winding roads to get to the entrance and walk further in, climbing steep slopes. The Observatory has to be at a place where there's minimal lights, so have to walk deep deep inside. Seriously, all the places with beautiful scenery or nature require me to walk until I wanna die.

Since the Observatory was already closed, we walked out to the entrance and watched the sunset.

Beautiful sunset, the moon, lakes, city lights and a very bright star (we guessed it's Venus) all in one pic. The very bright star looks very faint in this pic. It's the small tiny bright dot in the middle of the sky.

While admiring the sunset, we saw lightning bolts shining from a huge piece of dark cloud from …

Nature beauty of Switzerland

Weekend road trip to the beautiful Switzerland, it's really one of our favourite country. Hubby says driving in Switzerland is not tiring at all because everywhere is so beautiful. This time, we drove through the Furka Pass and Grimsel Pass to the Jungfrau region.

Furka Pass It's a winding road up the mountains, and I really meant up, up and up. 
1/4 way up.. It says this road appeared in James Bond film - Goldfinger in a car-chasing scene. Wah, car chasing on such winding road, so dangerous.
Half way up 

3/4 way up?! The winding lane along the mountains was the road that we drove. I must give credit to hubby. I can never ever drive on such winding roads even though Switzerland really did a good job in maintaining the roads.

And we reached a landmark along the Furka Pass, Hotel Restaurant Belvedere.


The highlight is not the Hotel la. From this hotel, you can walk to the Rhone Glacier and the Ice Grotto (an ice tunnel)! It's really near. But we chose the wrong time to go. The p…
