Epsom Salt

Have your heard Epsom Salt? I never until last year. You can buy Epsom Salt at any Guardian Outlet at RM 5.70/box. I used it to soak with my feet but some people using it for fertilizer, fabric softener, etc.

What is Epsom Salt?
Magnesium sulfate is a chemical compound containing magnesium and sulfate, with the formula MgSO4.

What is known for?
Its mineral rich and soothing properties. When absorbed through the skin, such as in a bath salt soak, Epsom Salt is believed to draw toxins from the body, reduce swelling, and relax muscles.

I read an article about it and it has 13 wonderful ways to use or perhaps more. Here is the summary from the article.

1. Relaxing and sedative bath
2. Foot soak
3. Soak sprains and bruises
4. Splinter remover
5. Face cleaner
6. Homemade skin mask
7. Skin exfoliator
8. Remove excess oil from hair
9. Remove hairspray
10. Hair volumenizer
11. Detox bath
12. Body scrub
13. Healing powers

I'll stick to my item [2] :) And I'm happy about it.

2 weeks on Bali

Bali is never on my travel list. Making itinerary was less than 3 months, the fastest I guess. :)

I had a culture shocked while I was there. Most probably due to the timing. Upon landing, our driver has waited for us and I was still blur as I saw a lot of people waiting at the arrival hall. I was like... "We're not celebrity". Really really a lot of people.

On the way to Canggu, to our Airbnb villa, we stopped by at a cafe to grab some food to eat. I was so hungry. So we decided to grab donuts. Along the way to Canggu, a lot of beautiful shops, colorful, full of souvenirs. What amazed me was the road system. The road was so narrow however the amount of vehicles on the road, A LOT than my place. My culture shocked has not ended, it's just about to begin. Looking at the houses, roads, people, no tall buildings, I didn't see any fast food restaurant and there I was thinking, "Ohhh, this is it. This is BALI !" When we reached the villa, I was like "Yea…
