When you start receiving spam in this blog, it is time to start updating it before more spammers come in and think this blog is abandon.
It's the time of the year again to tie rakhi for our brothers.  I have always enjoyed this special occasion thanks to Sahaja Yoga.  Being born a Chinese, I have never known such auspicious and beautiful occasion about Raksha Bandhan.  And being the first born in the family and having no brothers, I have always wanted to feel a brother's love.  So thankful for Sahaja Yoga to introduce me to this wonderful event of tying rakhi for your brother and getting your brother's love and affection.
Having being confined in the house due to virus infections in the family, I missed collective for few weeks.  In fact, I wanted to teach to some yoginis how to make these rakhis and was informed to teach them too.  Unfortunately, the virus has isolated me and my family.  So last Saturday, while going deep into meditation (after having lost my voice compl…

How to apply for a Malaysian passport for toddler of a foreign parent

You read the title right.  The reason why I want to blog about this is because I can't find it anywhere else.  All the other blogs talk about the process of getting a passport for your kid.  But no one mentioned about a kid with a Malaysian mom and a foreigner dad.  Well, I thought it was the same process, but unfortunately no.  Guess next time I have to bear in mind and bring ALL the documents with me.  My guess is it has something to do with the father.  When I made my first passport, I was not 18 years old then and I have to get my dad to sign a consent saying he allows me to apply for a passport.  And it specifically mentioned father, not mother.  So, my guess is, this doesn't apply if the father is a Malaysian and the mother is a foreigner.
Today, we went to apply for her first passport since we will be travelling overseas soon.  At 7.45am, there was already a queue at the Jabatan Imigresen Malaysia, Kelana Jaya Branch.  Was given a form like this to fill up:

Good Sahaja Yoga resources

I think I have posted some very good Sahaja Yoga websites but I can't find that post.  Here you go:

1. Amruta
This web has a collection of Shri Mataji's speeches in audio and video and some with transcript.  There are also some speeches translated to different languages which is beneficial to those who doesn't know English.  The search function is also very good.  If you need to find any info, just type in the keyword and click Search and voila, all the speeches with the keywords will appear.  
2. Sahaja Yoga Online Library This was created by the Indian Sahaja Yogis and it has a wide collection of books, CDs (can listen in MP3 and downloadable), magazines and photos.  The registration part is a little tricky though.  
3. Sahaja Yoga Books for Children This web has a list of books for Sahaja Yogis' children.  Once you click Order, it will bring you to Amazon and you can purchase from there.  I just did.
4. Sahaja Yoga e-Books for download This web has quite a few Sahaj…

Sahaja Yoga and Children

Books
"Raising Children in Sahaja Yoga" is very good.  It contains excerpts from Shri Mataji's various speeches and also a summary of how to bring up children according to their ages from 0-6 onwards.  Very informative for new parents.  You can download this book for free from Sahaja Yoga Online Library.  "My First Book of Chakras" is a beautiful book with colourful illustrations.  It is suitable for both children and adult.  It has lots of information about chakras and deities.  One look at it you can tell that the authors put a lot of effort and attention into this book.  You can buy this book from the Sahaja Books for Children.  Somehow I got a copy of the e-Book forwarded by some yogis few years back.  In the same webpage, you can find many Sahaja Yoga books written for Sahaja Yogis children by Sahaja Yogis.  I just bought Nirmala's Story on Amazon.  Cost a lot but the vibes were fantastic.
Music "Little Ganesha" is a CD created by the Sweden Col…

Why I don't write as much as before

I asked myself, why have I abandon this blog?  In fact, I have written some posts, but they are still in draft.  I asked again, why?

Perhaps is this.  Even though this is a personal blog, but it's out in the web, means anyone can access it publicly.  And nowadays, anyone can share this blog.  Previously, in order to get updates of this blog, one can subscribe.  And now so many people has subscribed and I get even more paranoid about my personal space being invaded.

In fact, I don't write personal stuff.

First, I saw my photos being used in another Sahaj website without permission.  But then again, all the photos posted here are available on Google, so where is there to hide?

Second, I saw my blog posts being shared on Facebook and people are commenting on them, whether good or bad.  This is something I am not so keen.  I prefer if my post remains as it is in this blog and not anywhere else on Facebook or any other social media.  I know some shared it as they feel it's …

Just a quick update

OMG!  I haven't updated at all in 2017.  And this is going to be the first post and it's already May!!!
I am still around although this blog is not active.  But some posts are still very actively read by many readers especially those relating to the Marriage Registration and Long Term Social Visit Pass.  Thank you for reading and I am happy that these posts had helped you.
I have been crazy busy.   At work, at home, OMG!  I don't have time to do anything at all.  I wanted to make a busy book for my girl and post it, but still initial stages.  I wanted to colour some deities and put it in a file for her, but only did few pages.  
I hardly have any time to breath, let alone to update this blog.  I wanted to do so much, to write, to do some handcrafts but there's just so much time in a day.  
I am sleep deprived, still trying to get my girl to sleep earlier (she is following my time, which is not good at all), trying to teach her so many things, Sahaj wise, motor skills,…
