Tomb Sweeping

It's the Qing Ming (清明节) festival now but this year both hubby and I are not joining the families to pray our ancestors. Reason being is simple, I'm pregnant and hubby is here to accompany me.

But the other day I read an article in a local newspaper about the do's and don'ts during this festival, I found it very interesting and I wanna share it here (May be some of you had read about it too). It doesn't matter if you are not a superstitious person, no harm reading them to enhance knowledge, right? ;)

- Do pray the Tu Di Gong (土地公) first at the cemetery.
- Avoid stepping on other 'homes' (But sometimes it's unavoidable right? Especially when that area is crowded)
- Do not walk bare footed because it'd bring unwanted spirit home.
- If you hear chinese scripture (经文), try to leave the cemetery asap because some scripture are not meant for us.
- Eat a red egg on the spot to represent new life (新生).

- Tap away the sands underneath your shoes before leaving.
- All praying must be done before 3pm.

Thank you for reading and have a nice day ahead!!


  1. Thx for the share! It's interesting and I will take note when I go for qing ming on Wed. =)
    And I hope could meet you on this round back. ^^

  2. oh, thanks for sharing the info, but we didn't follow all maybe just a few, and a few we are not aware of.. but i think different group of people also practice different things right?? :)

  3. I am going qing ming tomorrow (sunday). By the way, I have a blog giveaway (contest) at my blog, do visit my blog if you are interested, cheers!

  4. i went to chig ming this morning @ semenyih....
    but it was full of ppl n the traffic was so bad..
    n we are intend to go there around 3pm.. oopssss...

  5. not done chengbeng for many years...i think since my school days as my mum prefers me to stay home. but good tips nevertheless.

  6. Since have kids around, I never go already. But a year before I did went to Qing Ming.

  7. Evelyn, ok!

    SK, yes yes, different people different practice..

  8. 今年我也是没有去清明,老公也是在家陪我,没有去 =p

  9. Oh yeah.. visited granddad's tomb once after marriage. Not very convenient to bring kids for praying there. Just ask hubby to go by himself with the in-laws.

  10. oh my, i think i never followed any of those things listed. when i was a kid, we used to walk around to the 'neighbour's' tombs and played. *yikes*

  11. Interesting. I never know this until I read this today. This year, I didn't go also. PIL and Hubby went on my working day.

  12. Barb, yes we did too, so just pray to the 'neighbours' using our hands if we step on their 'homes'.

  13. oo must leave before 3pm :/ else will be bad . . .

    I seldom read newspaper haha

    and maybe this is one of the great tips and I also should write about it XD

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
