Clothes Pegging My Fingers For Health!

Suzanne's Reflex-ClampingAfter reading Mildred Carter’s book on “Hand Reflexology: Key to Perfect Health”, in which she uses reflex clamps to clamp one’s finger tips and in between the fingers, as a form of self-reflexology, I started to do the same.  However,  in place of the ‘reflex clamps’, I use the humble plastic clothes pegs.

I carry the clothes pegs everywhere with me and whenever I have idle hands for a few minutes, I clip them on my finger tips, ensuring that the cushiony pads of the fingers are included.

For my knuckles, I use clothes pegs too, but the ones with the bulging curved ends, that fit easily around the fingers or knuckles.

When I started working on my fingers with these clothes pegs, I could only take them 1-2 minutes at a time, but after repeated use, I am able to leave them on for up to 10-15 minutes per session.

Soon after using the pegs a few times, I began to notice small improvements to my overall health.  I believe the results of constant use will turn out differently for each individual.

When the finger tips are pegged for a few minutes at a time,  the circulation in one’s system is activated and if one reads about reflexology,  it explains the details more clearly.

On a closing note, please remember that this is what I do regularly and it is working well in my favour. However, if anyone is uncertain, it is best to first consult with your doctor before trying anything new.

Until the next time, Amen.

Fuss-Free Fish Floss

Fish Floss with breadWe grew up enjoying pork, chicken or fish floss sprinkled on a slice of buttered bread, either for breakfast or as a yummy snack. Not only is it the ideal sandwich filler, it adds a different flavor to rice porridge or some rice dishes too. Be warned, it can get quite addictive….

In Malaysia, Singapore or Hong Kong, it is easily available, and there are some well-known Singaporean brands that have captured the mainland Chinese market over the last few years.

However, if like many a Malaysian living abroad, perhaps the easiest way to get hold of some delectable meat or fish floss, is to prepare it in your own kitchen. That way, at least you know what went into its making!

Once again, cousin Pauline in the UK, who has mastered the art of whipping up local Malaysian specialities, shares this recipe which she simplified and fine-tuned from one obtained online.

FISH FLOSS (This amount yields a Chinese bowl-full)

Ingredients
I small tin tuna ( approx. 185 gm) in oil is best
1 dessert spoon light soya sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
Sprinkling of white pepper
Sprinkling of 5 spice powder
A few drops of chilli oil
A sprinkling of chicken powder (optional)
Salt as needed

Method
Drain some of the oil from the tin.
Put the fish in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat and mash and fry. Add the rest of the ingredients and continue to mix and fry over low heat now, until mixture becomes floss-like and golden brown in colour.  It takes approx 20 mins. Adjust seasoning. Remove from heat and allow floss to dry further as it cools. Enjoy!

We are always thankful for such simple pleasures in life. Amen.

Mother's day card for blogEvery second Sunday in May, Mother’s Day is celebrated (in most parts of the world) in honour of ladies who dedicate their lives to their children and families.

As we can never thank mothers enough for their love, let us pray for their well-being and may the good Lord be their guiding light always.

Wishing everyone who plays a motherly role, a very Happy Mother’s Day. Amen.
