Mommy went to Spotlight and I thought I’d tag along to get some new fabric. Then we had Sukiyaki for dinner. Mom and dad always said that dinner was for family to sit together to eat and talk about our day. Looking around and seeing people with phones and tablets over their dinner table, I’m glad they instilled this habit into me. More importantly, I’m glad I have my family with me, and they are such a family to have.
The night view here is as peaceful looking as it is during the day. I noticed the 2 clouds that looked like 2 pieces of a puzzle that fit and couldn’t help but take a picture.
Nili still has not ventured into the balcony. Since he was a little bunny, he was taught not to go to the balcony for fear of him falling off. I guess that stuck with him.
Dad has been giving him these leaves that he plants on his own (he likes gardening although it is hard to do so in Singapore houses). It is suppose to be a natural cure for cancer. It is a little to late, since Nili’s lump has grown back to its fullest, but Nilis loves them! He’d gobble up 2 leaves at a go.
Speaking of natural cure, I tried a green tea wash last night.
I have always suffered from pimple problems. And only in the past year have I actually gone looking for a good wash. Pimples didn’t really bothered me in the past even when friends and family commented on it. But it has started to affect me.
I didn’t want to go overboard and spend a fortune on facial products. Although, I admit I have spent more than I’d prefer. So I decided to look for some homemade remedies. I mean, why not? You feel accomplished only when you do things with your own two hands. 🙂
I went surfing and found this green tea wash and decided to try it myself. It is fuss free, cheap and easy.
I chill a nice bowl of green tea. The one in the picture is too much. So if you’re trying it maybe half to 3/4 of that would suffice. I use powdered green tea, but I read that those bags one do just fine.
Then I damp my face towel in warm water – warm enough to be comfortable and relaxing, but not too hot that it burns.
I cover my face with the towel until the towel loses its heat. Then I first wash my face with the green tea and next use my face towel to do a gentle scrub.
The next morning, the red pimples on my face were slightly less swollen and my skin felt softer and cleaner.
Or it may just be my imagination. 😉 These things take time.
I shall continue my quest for cleaner and healthier skin using my green tea face wash and keep you updated. In the mean time, I am having dreams of Japanese gourmet from sleeping to the smell of Green tea, and I’m loving it.
