Lavender – (Lavandula angustifolia) is the most versatile of all essential oils. Therapeutic-grade lavender has been highly regarded for the skin. Lavender has been clinically evaluated for its relaxing effects. It may be used to cleanse cuts, bruises and skin irritations. The fragrance is calming, relaxing and balancing — physically and emotionally.

Memory lane walk – Petaling Street Part One


Petaling Street the China Town is a bustling part of Kuala Lumpur day and night. Affectionately known as PS boutique among locals. It is infamous for pirated clothes and accessories along with bootleg DVDs and CDs. Recently Petaling Street went through a facelift and I’m quite  happy it has not lost it’s old world charm.

Historical Background via http://www.virtualmalaysia.com/destination/chinatown%20(petaling%20street).html

The original Chinese Town centred on Market Square. As the population grew, expansion was constrained by swamps, hills and the river. High Street, now known as Jalan Tun HS Lee, became increasingly popular, as it was higher than the rest of the town and therefore less prone to floods.

KL was a typical “pioneer” town at the turn of the century, filled with a rough and tough population that was largely male. For entertainment, there was Chinese wayang (opera) or bangsawan (Malay theatre).

The Chinese leaders provided for the community through associations, benevolent societies, temples and foundations. The wealthier and more ornate shophouses were built north of Jalan Cheng Lock, closer to the business centre.

The best time to visit is at night. It’s a street that does not sleep quite well. But that’s part of the fun, the bustling noise and crowd. Pushing your way into the crowd to a nice bargain gives you a unique experience.

Eyeing for the latest from CK or Spiderman movie T-shirt, PS is the place to start looking. Did I mention, imitation is the greatest flattery.

You’ll be spoilt for choice, handbags, luggages, sunglasses, cloths and food..

Reminders :

Day or Night, be vigilant and take extra care with your belongings.

As a rule of thumb, do not pay the first offer price. Haggle a bit until you get a bottom price. If you are not into haggling, my suggestion is just watch and don’t buy. You can still savour all the local food offerings.

 

To be continued… What’s your earliest memory of PS boutique?

Keeping Cool… and Green

Air conditioning accounts for 14 percent of America’s home electricity use, and most of that electricity comes from coal. So when the weather warms up we should do everything we can to conserve energy as we keep cool. That means treating our air conditioners the same way we treat other energy-demanding appliances: by using them wisely and keeping them running efficiently. Here are some tips to help:
