Booknotes: Munky Luv!

So I guess the circus theme is officially out because I learned that Mark is frightened by clowns and feels bad for freak performers, despite my assuring him that I would never exploit people that way.

So, we settled on something sillier and which I believe is actually much more personal! Th wedding concept is now Munky Bizniz, and it’s coming from the idea that marriage is essentially a launching of a new life. Why not have a party that looks like a brand / product launch!

We recently started our Munky Bizniz site, which is where all basic details about the wedding will be. Check it out here:!

Booknotes: A Quantum Solution?

Nowadays, I’ve been really happy and sad at the same time. The added responsibility of running a business, the responsibility of doing volunteer work, the responsibility of studying for class and the unproductive (non-existent) wedding planning because reserving a venue is a the bottom of my to-do list, have all resulted to a 5 pound weight loss. I’m down to 96 from 101.

I supposed I’m close to burning out and I won’t even approve a leave of absence for my own self.

So, I guess it was timely that my mom gave me a Quantum Pendant yesterday.

It’s the first time I’ve ever heard of one.

In a nutshell, this pendant, which is made up of molecularly-bonded natural minerals, produces scalar energy which regulates the positive flow and balance of energy in one’s body. In other words, it helps you perform well even under stress.

The box says “Japanese Technology” which confused me because personally, I find that the pendant is somewhat more of an amulet. I guess by placing the word technology there, skeptics would be less taken aback by any quakery that this piece may represent.

Here are a list of benefits according to the manufacturer:

– Reduces inflammation
– Promotes unclamping of cells
– Enhances circulation
– Enhances immune and endocrine systems
– Has the ability to destroy viruses and bacteria
– Enhances cellular nutrition and detoxification
– Enhances cellular permeability
– Increases energy
– Helps to protect DNA from damage
– Helps to retard the ageing process
– Helps to fight cancer cells
– Strengthens the body’s bio-field preventing
electro-magnetic waves from affecting one’s health
– Increases focus and concentration

I started wearing it today but I don’t necessarily feel the rush of scalar energy, or maybe my body has gotten so used to stress that I’ve become numb. I’m not well-versed in the science behind scalar energy nor do I believe in simply putting a piece of healing jewelry around your neck so that life becomes a breeze. I’d rather take a more holistic approach to balancing my life out, even though I must admit it’s something that I still have to train myself to do.

Nevertheless, this curious pendant doesn’t actually look bad and I don’t mind wearing it for the aesthetic benefits. Whether it proves to be helpful in the anti-stress department is yet to be seen–or felt.

Booknotes: Have time, Will blog!

Since, I can’t always find time to write an entire entry, I decided to come up with these micro-posts called “Booknotes.”

It’s been quite some time since I last posted something here. With a year and three months to go, I haven’t been busy with any wedding planning at all. Instead, all my time has gone to starting a business. Yay….and nay!

I guess that’s the positive effect of an engagement on me: it kicks your ass into finally realizing your plans.

On the upside, I have found and reserved a wedding dress–off the rack! I’m not going to post a picture here but all I can say is that it’s a very, very simple strapless cream sheath with a corset and some really lovely draping. The best part of going the classic route: the dress won’t look dated decades after the big day. However, if I could really be adventurous about it, I would choose this black dress:

Well, that’s it for now. Back to work at half past midnight.
