The Yin Yoga

The Yin Yoga

Yesterday, my yoga class was conducted another Yogi and she ais practicing the Yin yoga. She explained that the nimala yoga Is a yang yoga which build strength in our muscles where as the Yin yoga is the practice of relaxin our muscles into a form. The purpose is to have a totally relaxed body before easing into a form.

This understanding draw parallel to the Chinese martial art which have the hard and soft type. The hard form have hard punches and firm stand while the soft type like Tai Chi is the soft type. The body must be as soft as the water but still keeping a strong internal chi.

The Yin yoga draw the strength from the relax muscles which settles the body into a form. It has the leverage to stretch the muscles and the spine.. It is a force on force and both force finally form a relaxed form with the muscles pulling each other.

The practice  yesterday  was on the rotation of the spine. A six point rotation . The left and right stretching , the up and down  and the twisting of the left and the right side of the spine.

It was a totally different way and it was so slow and relax and we came to understand that we have to alternate this hard and soft form to realize the full potential of yoga.


Making something out of nothing

Making something out of nothing at all.

Only magicians can do it making something ku of thin air. These are highly intelligent people. But   Don't be mistaken there some lowly people who can create a story out of nothing. These lowly people are cowards , making this world a difficult place for all.

The existence of such lowly people is because the world is imperfect and the world need these lowly figures to make life interesting and challenging.

Without the bad , there is no good and vice versa. Only the bad brings out the good just like light showing the existence of darkness. I there is no happiness then there is no sadness. This is Buddha's middle path.

When we say making things out of nowhere, it means that we are creating a story to conspire or framing up a good man or fictitious story make real.

Remember we sow what we reap. The Law of Karma.

Imperfect world - LOL

We are always right and we are perfect.  This is our big ego and we always only know how to criticize and complaint. But, do we really look beyond the surface and get to see the truth. If we attempt to seek the truth , then we understand why this is an imperfect world.

Look at the mirror and be aware of yourself. Be honest and look through ourself and list out a list of our weakness.  Break the big ego and really assess yourself frankly and truly.  If you have a perfect score, you are still bluffing yourself and your ego is still controlling you. Be truthful and see it with a clear eye. If you see imperfection in you then the truth is revealing.

It is no point making us look good to ourself rather knowing your weakness and take measures to ratify it.  Actually, nobody is perfect in this world except GOD or our creator. In some wisebooks, man is created in the image of GOD. So, even GOD is not perfect.

Why bluff yourself and live in  a dream world ? If you do it , you are causing alot of harm and inconvenience to the people besides you because you will be asking for perfection from them. You measure them against a different standard . A standard created by you which it is not even attainable by you. You pull the bar so high that nobody can jump across it while you imagine that you can achieve it. After you try and fell, you will start to adjust the bar lower and you will see you weakenss and your real standard.

If you still don't see the imperfection in you , you are just blind by your ego and your false standard.  Such imaginary perfection , not only add stress to you and others. You will be very unhappy to note that every thing is not achievable and negative. Only if you are aware and know that people are imperfect then you realize their existence and accept their existence. 

So , you will understand why that people come to work late, people make mistakes and why there are so many bad people or wicked people on this earth ,etc.  These are the imperfect people living in this imperfect world which is created by these imperfect people.

The earlier you realized such imperfection , the real worl will reveal infront of you and you will be happy and will not feel uncomfortable with the imperfections.

Crab rice at Simpang Ampat, Penang.

Crap rice at simpang Ampat, Penang

Last Sunday , I toolk my family including my sister and brother in law for lunch at the crap rice at simpang Ampat.  I have been there with my boss many years ago and  I wanted to compare to the crap rice which I had last week at Tanjung Bungah.

Comparing the quantity , the crap rice at simpang Ampat was bigger and the crap was more fresh and tastier.  However, the chicken and other dishes were not so good including the vegetables.

Further down simpang Ampat is tambun which is famous for the sea food ie crabs and prawns. Further a bit more is Batu Kawan whch is well known for their seafood congee and porridge.

There are so many sea food outlets around these areas and some serves excellent sea food. Much further down is Bandar Bahru , my favorite sea food hideout. They offer excellent river fish and prawns and at reasonable price。

Back to the crab rice at simpang Ampat. It was not the best but the price is reasonable. For a six person lunch , it cost about Rm274 only with six sea food dishes and chicken.

Am I laughing? Yes,I am.

An I laughing?

Today is not a special day and the topic we  are talking was about underwear and jelly. It was all on the news.

It was a game of it looks like me .talk like me but it us not me. It was same with the joke about superman tag line. It is a bird, no a plane . Yes , it is superman. A funny world.

It is G-string underwear and pole dance. This will be a good advertisement for the underwear business.

Do we need to wash G-strings ? It is only a few robes mapped together and is it washable ?  There is no stain and it will dry pretty fast. Maybe , it can be used as evidence for whatever.

What color is it? Red. hey! Be careful of the bull. It ramp everything in the way.  All the dirts will fly out and it will stink the whole country. Who cares as long as it can bulldozed through and meet the bull's eye.

Finally , we don't care whether it is used for the front or the back, jelly is necessary. Ass holes.

An Inspiring love - extract

"I was a very rich man. Not with money, but with love"

"I never had a single argument with my wife, but we had lots of debates"

"People are like candles. At any moment a breeze can blow it out, so enjoy the light while you have it."

"Tell your wife that you love her everyday. And be sure to ask her, have I told you that I love you lately?"

Be sure to talk to the elderly. Especially strangers. You may think that you will brighten their day, but you may be surprised that they can actually brighten yours.”

Namaste.  Forever love.

Wasabe Dhaka- The Japanese Restaurant

Dinner at Wasabe .Dhaka

Yes. I am in Bangladesh again and I had dinner at Wasabe  Restaurant in Dhaka.  I think the teppanyaki food is one of the best despite a bit pricey.

The ambiance was nicely done with a waterfall coming down from the roof and transparent glass walk lining the floor. The setting is completely different from the outside which is dusty and lined with massive jams.

As I mentioned in my earlier articles about this restaurant, the chefs are Thai expatriates who works on the teppanyaki tables.

The assortments are comprised of fish, prawns , abalone , chicken , beef ,different type of vegetables and finally end with a fried rice. All the foods are fresh and taste very good.

If you come this way, it is a pity for you to missed it and it is right in the middle of the city .

Namaste to the Food God.
