Food

I will write about food today.  My favourite food.

I like to eat almost all food, food that is edible of course.  Here's a list of my favourite food (not according to any rank):

1. Indian - I like paneer (Indian cheese), raita (Indian salad), mutton curry at Vashi hospital, the spaghetti at Vashi hospital.  I like Indian cooking because they use a lot of spices, compare to Chinese cooking, which I find is healthier and more natural.  Oh, I also like Malayali food, and I missed Pulisheri so much.  It's a cooked mango dish, so it's sweet and sour and oh-so-yum.

2. Nyonya - My family love nyonya food.  Nyonya culture is a culture where Malay and Chinese meet.  So the food is spicy and sour.  My favourite has got to be petai (I don't know what is it call in English, but it's a smelly bean).  Sambal petai is one of the best dish.  Yummy.

3. Thai - Not a favourite of Tomyam myself, but I like Thai style of sweet and sour everything.

4. Vietnamese - I first discovered vietnamese food when I was in Australia, where we were introduced to authentic Vietnamese cuisine.  Then back in Malaysia, we visited a Vietnamese restaurant and I love the food.  I love the food that is roll into the rice paper.  Oh, the taste is heavenly.  Simple and original.  You wet the rice paper.  Put some mee hoon, veges, meat and wrapped it up, dipped in some special sauce and there go you.  One of my favourites.

5. Japanese - Teriyaki, is my favourite orders in a Japanese restaurant.  I am so-so with sushi and all, not so crazy about them, but when it comes to teriyaki, in any form, that's my order!

6. Malaysian - Asam Laksa, no need to say anymore.

Well, since I am a Chinese and I eat Chinese almost everyday at home, I can't seem to find a favourite food.  Any food that is cook with taste is good for me.  Even something as simple as pumpkin porridge makes my day. 

I am not so much an Italian food person as I don't really like pasta or pizza so much, but surprisingly that is the only major cooking that I will do at home, spaghetti.  But when I was in Cabella, we have the spaghetti pesto, oh my, it was heavenly.  I am not sure whether it's because we were starving and was really craving for good food that makes us faint in delight to this spaghetti pesto. 

I am not a big fan of Korean food either because I cannot agree with the taste.  Somehow, I like how the cooking is done, how interesting the food is, but not the taste.  That's the only food I that I cannot enjoy, no matter how delicious they said it is.  Japanese yes, but not Korean.  Maybe tonight I will change my mind after my visit to some Korean restaurant with some Korean people.

Some other random food I like, Swiss Rosti.  Not a fan of American food, too greasy and too big portion.  Mexican...hmm..maybe just the tacos.

That's all for food today.  A post unrelated to Sahaj.  Hopefully once I am much more alert, not so tired, meditate better and mood brighten up...I will write more.

How to make yogurt with EasiYo Yogurt Maker with and without the sachets

Disclaimer:  This is not an advertisement.

First Attempt After months of not looking paying attention to what I have been putting into my stomach, GERD came back few weeks ago.  Thank God it wasn't that bad.  Just 1 puking session and that's it.
Since then, I have been very careful at the food I am putting into my mouth, looking out for trigger food and what's good for GERD.
Found that actually yogurt is very good for GERD.  So, long story short, I invested in EasiYo Yogurt Maker.
Actually, before that, I was thinking of ways to make my own yogurt.  I did it before and it was successful.  But after reading reviews on EasiYo Yogurt Maker and so many said it's good and easy and the yogurt was super delicious, in the end, I was in.  RM139 with starter pack.

You can find this in selected Carings and Vitacare pharmacy.  I bought mine at Damansara Uptown.
1. First put room temperature water or cold water into the EasiYo yogurt container.  Fill it half way through only.

2. The…

Matka pot treatment - Night 1

I started the matka pot treatment last night.  Been feeling a lot of left agnya catch lately, so thought that it is high time to do a matka pot treatment.  Here is what we need:
7 limes (I heard in Belgium, they used 7 lemons, so the pot that they used is so big and they have a hard time trying to dispose the pot after the 7 nights).  Cut the top of the limes to expose a bit of the flesh.
7 chillies.  Remove the top of the chillies (I don't know what you call, stem or stalk).  I used small chillies so that they can fit into the matka pot.
1 matka pot (here in Malaysia we used claypot that they cooked claypot rice, glazed inside so that it will not leak)
Vibrated water
So, you put everything into the pot and vibrate in front of Shri Mataji's photo.  Pray that the matka pot will absorb all the catches and negativities.  Then place it on the left side of the bed.  I put it under the bed but you can also put it on a side table on your left side.  Just be careful not to spill the …

Information for pregnant Sahaja Yoginis

I have decided to gather all information for pregnant Sahaja Yoginis here.  This is probably not conclusive, so please feel free to add on if you have anymore inputs.  To read more about it, please go to amruta.org.  
I guess the experience varies from individual to individual.  But I was very sensitive to vibrations and negativity when I was in my first trimester.  So much so that sometimes I have to do 2-3 times footsoak in a row in order to feel better.  But it gets better in the second trimester.

As for havan, I was told that pregnant ladies can attend havan but have to sit far from the fire and don't sit too long.  This was advice by the Vashi doctors.  But my own experience, in which I attended one havan, I didn't feel good after that.  It's just my personal feelings about it as I was ultra-sensitive.  But I read some yoginis wrote that pregnant ladies should not attend havan altogether.  So, it really depends.  I guess you could always check vibrations to find out…
