Removing Stains From New Dress

Previously I wrote in  my blog that my new dress is ruined here. So I mentioned that I will try to remove the stains and I did give it a try.

 

I used vinegar mixed with a little bit of lemon juice and water.

It didn’t work though. I rubbed it on the stains on my new dress, then let it dry. The stain was still there.

I tried putting on the stain removal mixture onto the stained part of the dress, rubbed it with a cotton bud and then used paper towels to soak up the liquid. It didn’t work as well.

 

In the end I just threw the dress to wash and after washing, the stain was still there but it wasn’t as visible as before. It’s dark coloured, so it wasn’t as bad and I can still wear it out. I didn’t approach any sponsors for clothing or anything of that sort after my last post about this stained new dres. Malaslah.

 

Sometimes all these unnecessary correspondences, wasting time only, might as well just buy. Only if I have some time to spare or I feel it is necessary, then will seek for sponsorship in kind (meaning non-monetary terms). Better to use the time to go ask for something that can bring in money like business. Then I can use the money to choose what I want to get. That is actually a much wiser option. I don’t deny that I do fair trading (not stock market trading ya) with others like services or items in return for services or items but only if I see it necessary and beneficial. Otherwise, we still need money to survive in this world. We don’t stay in a country where there’s barter trading as our system.

 

Anyway, this natural remedy of removing stain on clothings using vinegar, lemon juice and water doesn’t work. You can try it if you want.  It’s vinegar and water in equal parts, then 1/4 of the lemon juice.

Happy Chinese New Year and Happy Chap Goh Meh

So today is the last day of Chinese New Year 2018. I haven’t been posting for quite a while. I have been busy with business, Chinese New Year visits and also personal life. Many has happened during these few weeks.

 

Anyway, before the 15th day of CNY is over, I wish you a Happy Chinese New Year and hope you had fun celebrating Chap Goh Meh.

 

Here’s sharing a picture from a blog post at Myle Enterprise, which is about Chinese New Year table decoration. The decorated table in the ‘After’ part of this picture is pretty, I must say. For more details, visit https://myleenterprise.com/chinese-new-year-table-decoration/.

Spring Cleaning

I woke up before 9am this morning. It’s a big difference from my usual waking up in the afternoon because I work and I don’t go to sleep until early in the morning at 5am. Sometimes I’m still awake at 7am.

 

Some people are more productive at night. Apparently those who are night owls are smarter (according to research and online articles, not my own self-praise). My body have gotten used to the night owl time. The only thing is I need to ensure I can still wake up and contact those working office hours before they get off work. I was doing fine for the past 2 months with this timing, so it wasn’t too bad.

 

I’m sitting here now stoning because of the lack of sleep and it’s just too early for my sleeping time. It’s counter-productive to be awake early but not being able to think or move. Better to have enough of sleep and then brains can work properly. I usually get at least 8-10 hours of sleeping time.

 

So, this morning I was hungry and cooked breakfast. I made spaghetti cooked in garlic, egg, turmeric and cheese, then sprinkled with rosemary and mint. Here’s the picture of my spaghetti which is also found in my Instagram.

 

 

Update : Decided not to stone, I’ll be up and moving. My stoning is sitting down and barely moving while not able to think much, not that I take some form of drugs to stone. The only drugs I do now is anti-histamine and Vitamin C. Going out of the house for the first time after a month or so of staying in. Soaked up some Vitamin D and testing my skin’s resistance to the outside pollution, air and sun.

 

I had vegetarian lunch with my parents. It has been more than 2 years since I last went out with the two of them during weekday lunch. As for weekend lunch, we usually go out as a family and it has been more than 6 months since I last went out with them. My skin allergies make it extremely painful to go out and especially if I’m not in my own car where I can control the air conditioning as I like, it’s harder. In my car, I need to set the aircon to the coldest setting then when my skin and body temperature is cooler, I can set the aircon to less cold.

 

My vegetarian lunch of soya barley fuchuk dessert and vegetarian laksa (masuk my stomach already).

 

When I went out today, my skin allergies were not as bad as previously, with a bit of hives and slight inflammation when exposed to the sun. Previously my skin would flare up badly with big patches of hives all over my body especially on the arms and legs. It’s a pretty hot day in Penang with sunny, blue sky and fluffy clouds. My skin survived and reacted not too bad today. I’m satisfied with how much it has healed and will continue healing it.

 

 

Today is the first day of the last month in the Chinese calendar month. It’s one more month before it’s Chinese New Year. That’s why there was spring cleaning today. It will be Chinese New Year before you know it.
