Power Balance FAQ’s
How was POWER BALANCE developed?
POWER BALANCE was developed as the marriage of two ideas: First, years of extensive research into holographic and lenticular media showed the complexity of the hologram and the fact that it can be programmed to hold certain frequencies.  Second, further research was necessary to understand what frequency it was that best promoted energy flow throughout the body.  Once discovered, this led to the unconventional programming of bio-resonating frequencies onto holograms.  The result was POWER BALANCE.  Similar forms of this technology have been used in Eastern medicine for centuries and are quickly being introduced and embraced in the west.

 Why was POWER BALANCE developed?
 POWER BALANCE was developed to help improve performance and productivity for athletes and to spread wellness worldwide.  We believe these resonate frequencies are highly beneficial in all areas of life and should be affordable to everyone, not just those who can pay hundreds or sometimes thousands of dollars for other, less functional technologies. 

 Where did the idea for POWER BALANCE come from?
 A primitive form of this technology was discovered when someone, somewhere along the line, picked up a rock and felt something that reacted positively with his body.  While it may sound strange, the truth is that all naturally organic substances have different frequencies that resonate in them that are inherently found within the earth.  At POWER BALANCE, we have found a few of those positive vibrations and put them together to create POWER BALANCE performance technology.  So, instead of having a bunch of rocks in your pocket, we have taken our understanding of holographic media to a new level.  By embedding these beneficial frequencies onto a hologram, it is now possible to apply this technology to almost anything.

 What can POWER BALANCE be used for?
 Currently PB is being placed on surfboards, snowboards, skateboards, bike seats and handles, shoes, sandals, wetsuits, trunks, glasses, gloves, hats, pendants, watches, belts, protective gear, or anything else that comes in range of the body’s energy field.

Testimonials/ reviews of people who tried this:)
I just tested this today... was very skeptical when my cousin came to me and told me it works. So he told me to see how far I could reach my toes without bending my knees, then he gave me the bracelet and told me to do it again, and to my amazement I could reach further! Still skeptical I took the band off and tried it again, and again amazed found my reach to be less then with the band on. Dont tell me its "Positive thinking" when a complete skeptic is baffled by this.

Tues-- Woke up early and meet xinyi for lunch and movie:) We caught


Directed by Lo Chi Leung.
Starred by Shawn Yue and Kitty Zhang.

Plot:  Young writer Guo (Shawn Yue) wrote about a titular curse in his book, "The Deserted Village".
 It began 500 years ago in the Ming Dynasty, when one of the villagers died of terminal illness. 
The widow Yanzi vowed to stay with her husband forever but when the man suddenly returned to life. 
The horrified neighbours believed that he was a monster. They burned him to death and torched his mansion. 
The devastated Yanzi upheld her vow and threw herself into the fire. 
Since then, the village was cursed and the mansion subsequent inhabitant dies mysteriously. 
Some say only couples who share true love can survive in that village. 
Those who are unfaithful will come to their demise. 
To the world, the book was pure fiction. 
Only Guo and his ex-girlfriend Zhi (Kitty Zhang) had lived through the horror to know its existence. 
When four college students decided to explore the village themselves, the trip led them to an ancient well in Yanzi's mansion, where the curse was unleashed once again.

Story line goes as a writer wrote a book about a deserted village. Then a few students found out the location after stealing his photo. The students went there and faced a horrifying fate which means they started to die one by one meanwhile the writer himself was frightened by his old girlfriend who is a lose a writer when she disguised as Rogue, the ghost of the deserted village. Then the writer feel responsible for what happen to the students, so he decided to go and visit the place one more time. Then he began to have memory loss which he only remembered what happened last three years. He started to bleed from his ears and his girlfriend wanted to help him by visiting the deserted village to return the pearl jade which was taken by the students that went there. Then at last the writer die in the hug of his girlfriend. Finally, it turned out that all that was just a story derived from the novel written by that girlfriend. Everything was fiction and the students weren't even injured.

Reviews on the movie: Not recommended... Its full of craps.

What can I see from this movie is poor genre involvement. They put it under the genre of horror and thriller which I only can experience not even more than 10 minutes. Poster wasn't related to the movie at all. It looks scary and appealing for the horror movie fans but believe me, there wasn't even a freaking scene that can make you frightened and shouted. Angles are not bad but it is just so-so compared to other thriller and horror films. Some scenes are unnecessary and seem confusing. Lightning seriously is quite good. Story line isn't attractive enough. One word to describe the acting skills from the actors and actresses besides Shawn Yue is S-U-C-K. I wonder can't they find better actors and actresses than those in this movie. I don't have much to say about this movie. I bet it wasn't even worth your money to go watch. So sorry but this movie totally disappoints me and WASTES my money for it.

AFter movie, i proceeded down to look for dionna babe and acc her for the hair treatment:) she seemed to be happy with the result too. This prove that my hairstylist was really good and my recommendation wasnt wrong too:D

happy chinese valentine day, Qi Xi Jie (Qi Qiao Jie)

I'm sure most of us weren't aware that today is our Chinese Valentine's Day. Also known also Qi Xi or Qi Qiao Jie.

You may not be familar with this festival, but the term 牛郎织女 will be familar to most of us right?

I didn't know that we celebrated this day on the 7th day of the 7th lunar month. 
Now i'm starting to wonder why that 7th lunar month? ain't it supposed to be hungry ghost month? 
why allowing them to meet only in such a scary month of the so many 12 months to choose from??

They weren't even ghost to begin with, apparently both were fairies or rather in a different version, 
Zhi Nu is a fairy.
Did a search on this festival, apparently there were 2 versions of the stories.

Below story taken from

History, version 1

According to the first version, the seven daughters of the Goddess of Heaven caught the eye of a Cowherd during one of their visits to earth. 
The daughters were bathing in a river and the Cowherd, Niu Lang, decided to have a bit of fun by running off with their clothing. 
It fell upon the prettiest daughter (who happened to be the seventh born), to ask him to return their clothes.

Since Niu Lang had seen the daughter, Zhi Nu, naked, they had to be married. 
The couple lived happily for several years. 
Eventually however, the Goddess of Heaven became fed up with her daughter's absence, and ordered her to return to heaven.
 However, the mother took pity on the couple and allowed them to be reunited once a year. 
Legend has it that on the seventh night of the seventh moon, magpies form a bridge with their wings for Zhi Nu to cross to meet her husband.

History, version 2

In the second version, Niu Lang and Zhi Nu were fairies living on opposite sides of the Milky Way. 
Feeling sorry for the two lonely sprites, the Jade Emperor of Heaven actively tried to bring them together. Unfortunately, he succeeded too well - Niu Lang and Zhi Nu became so enraptured with each other that they neglected their work. 
Annoyed, the Jade Emperor decreed that from that point on, the couple could only meet once a year - on the seventh night of the seventh moon. 
And so today, star gazers celebrate Qi Qiao Jie by gazing up at the star Vega, east of the Milky Way which represents Zhi Nu,
 and at the constellation Aquila, on the west side of the Milky Way, where Niu Lang waits for his lover to join him.

Pictures of Qixi: Chinese Valentine's Day



The Valentines Day comes on China on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month on the Chinese calendar. Chinese Valentines Day known as Qi Qiao Jie (QiXi) Festival in China. The other most popular names of Chinese Valentines Day is Festival of the Double Sevens’, ‘Seven Sister’s Festival’ and ‘The Daughter’s Festival’.
Chinese Valentines Day is based on the love story of the 7th daughter of Emperor of Heaven and an orphaned cowherd. The 7th daughter was forced to move to the star Vega and the cowherd moved to the star Altair. They are allowed to meet only once a year on the day of 7th day of 7th lunar month. Since this day celebrated on 7th day of 7th lunar month.

The celebrations of Chinese Valentine’s Day or Qi Qiao Jie – the seventh eve is quite different from usual Valentine’s Day celebration we see in rest of the world. In this day Chinese people visit the Temple of Matchmaker on the Chinese Valentine’s Day and pray for their love and happiness and their possible marriage. In this day the lovers are exchange of flowers, cards and chocolates as tokens of love between lovers.

SO.... Here i wish everyone...

happy Chinese Valentine's Day.

Tues-- was clearing some of my picture folder when i came across a few of those past photoshoot which i did.. share with u all..:)

I always wish for a home of my own where i can design it in my own ways.. Such eg...

Modern home design with swimming pool

Each home begins with the entrance hall. Opening the door, man makes the first step in their house, entering the hall. 

Our house is a place to relax after a whole day to do activities, which is very tiring, so the living room must definitely make ppl feel at home. I love spacious living room as its the first place which u will come across when u first step in:D

This is how my kitchen going to look like.. 

On the second level, i would use a diff wall color to bring out the vibrant of the whole house.

Natural Luxury and Modern Colors in Decoration

The bathroom is probably the smallest room at home. After a day of long activity, its best to soak yourself in the bathtub with lcd tv installed on the wall just to relAX AND enjoy:)

 this movie has a great showcase of dance moves all the way from the beginning till the end.This movie begins with an interview with a few dancers. These short interviews were actually put up by Luke who not only has interest in dance but film making as well. He usually goes around with a camera in a dance club, filming people's dance moves and recruiting those that impress him from the public. Natalie, not only caught his attention with her dance moves, but caught his heart. Unfortunately, she was the sister of one of an ex dance member from Luke's dance group, the pirates. However she does not know about it and ran away from the group and Luke when she found out. 
 In the case of Moose, it is his engineering degree and best (girl) friend, Camille, versus his pursuit of dance. 
The 3D effect in this movie is much better than Street Dance. The dancers do pop out right into your eyes. Do make it your first choice to watch it this weekend.
After movie, we stayed on at cine to play L4D2. Its really rather addictive to say. I played till i felt the dizziness in my head that i decided  to stop and just go for our late dinner and home after that.
SUnday-- Last day of the invest fair 2010:) Was half an hrs earlier today that i went to look for iris and also leslie they all too. SO co-incidence that i actually bumped into friends that ive not seen for mths.
After work, dad came n pick me up and off we went home. I slept throughout the entire evening till dinner time.
