Slow down

August 31st, 2009

Today lifestlye is so complex.  It seems to be easy to live with lots of facilities, gadgets and service.  However, people are less happier than they were.  Sometimes, the question comes across whether those kinds of thing make life more complicated.  People’s mind becomes the slave of materials.  This era should be called “Materialisation”.

Have we ever thought that our mind is fresh and clearer in the past that we do not need to be contacted 24 hours by mobile phone and when we got the mail from the envelope we can have time to think about how to write back and allow time to the others to think about us.  I think e-mail is good that we can contact instantaneously but it kills the feeling of when you miss someone and looking forward to hear or feel it.  Also, digital camera is also another thing that I feel it takes us away on the time that we sit and open album and when we take some photo with our care and feeling.  It has gone.  You can take thousand photos as you like and it is on the memory card.  You may not get chance to open and see it and enjoy it as the photocard in the albums.

However, nowadays lifestyle has a good side but it is so quick and sometimes, it is better to slow thing down.  Do not live like putting food in microwave.  Spend time on it and be patient.  As when you use saltpipe, be patient and the result will come.  It is not a modern drug working in 5-10 mins but it is ancient remedy.  It takes time.
 

4th Allergy show and our world

June 8th, 2008

The 13rd-15th of June will be our 4th times in
Allergy show.  We do not know what will happen this year.  We just
hope there will be quite a few people interested in our saltpipe.  During
the previous month, I have to thank you to Michael Van Stattren who is one of
the best health specialists recommending our Cisca Saltpipe through the Program
Talksport by Mike Mendoza.  It is a great help for us and lots of people
suffering from breathing problem.  I wish I can see him and say big THANK
to him.  Many customers obtaining the pipes and the feedback is they are
getting better.  Also, there were tragic news about natural disasters
happened in Asia.  The first country is Burma with the Nagis Cyclone


 

and the second one is in China, 
earthquake in Sechuan. 


With an increase of sale from the saltpipe
during that period, we manage to donate some money to help people over there. 
Even though, it may not be big money but at least with our donation, it is a
share among us, the seller and the buyers helping people who need help.  We
are all human and we should help if we can more or less.  It will be very
hard for both countries to reconstruct their own nation again.

From the disasters happened, we should learn
that now our world is getting to be more dangerous.  Because of people
destroy the world quite lot either direct or indirect.  There are several
things happened without warning so we must be careful and try to think how we
can contribute to our world.   Both tragedies were sad and both have
the same ending that lots of people died, some got injuries and some lost the
love one. 

So, the most important thing for us, we are
survive and we live and we have time to live more.  What can we do to help
the other that we will never sorry about being human.

What is Success?

April 1st, 2008

Life is full with success and failure.  One question comes across is what success is which on the other hand we must answer along with this question is what failure is.  In general, success is the judgement that we build up the goal and trying to achieve it and failure is when we cannot make it.

However, if we look in the the concept of success, we achieve the goal set whether it is real success.  Acutally, there is no success but rather the satisfaction of what we set up the target in the mind and unsatisfaction on what we cannot achieve.  Success of one person can be the failure of another.  For example, the gold medal of Olympic winner is the failure of person who get silver, bronze or achieve nothing.  In business, success may means lots of profits.  Is it true success?  Does success actually mean happiness?

Can we live without success?  Yes we can but the first thing we have to see clear is that success does not mean best achievement or being millionare.   Success does not mean winning against the losers.  However, if we change the word success to satisfaction to our own capability, it makes much more sense.  If we do not win but we are happy for the whole performance on what we did and feel happy for people who do better than us.  In my view, the real success is no feeling of success or unsuccess.  It is neutral but feel good about the thing what we have done. 

Love live the King Bhumipol

The 5th December 2007 is the 80th birthday of our king, King Bhumipol-The King of Thailand.  Every Thais in Thailand will put the flags with his symblo at their houses.  Some will go to the place where he will visit today and wait along the side of the road in order to greet him even though sometimes they may not able to see him.  Some will go to the temple to do some buddhist acitivity and giving the merit to him to bless him the best wishes.  I am far away in UK but I am very proud to be his people.  I am going to the temple tomorrow to offer the food the monk and ask the monk to bless him to have long life.  We love him.  He gives Thai people so much that we cannot describe by number.  He also teach us how to live and carry on our lives under this present economy.  Because of his teaching in the way of living using the self sufficient economy, I can carry on doing the business of Saltpipe in the different way than the others in the market.  He taught us to be satisfied in what we have and being kind and able to scarify to the people who want our help.  He is the example for everything of Thai people including me.  He is the The Father of Thais no matter how where we live.   I am sure several people have heard about him and would understand why we love him so much.  He has worked hard all his life for Thai people.  He travelled around the countries especially where poor people live and try to help them to have better living.  He is now 80 years old but he has not stopped working for Thai people. We love him and highly respect him.

Long live the King  ทรงพระเจริญ

Cisca Saltpipe rescues me from catching cold.

September 29th, 2007

I have had a cold this week since Monday.  My throat was horribly pain and I know it is the sign of catching cold.  I have not used the pipe so regularly as I used to for few weeks because I was so busy and forgot!.  I started using the pipe like mad when I know the condition would getting worse tomorrow.  Also, I decided to experiment myself how soon the saltpipe can help me to recover.  I used the pipe so often everyday and especially in the bed when I lied down and the throat was stung by pain.  I inhaled the pipe through the mouth and trying to adjust the air to hit the part where the pain was.  I could help me to find relief more or less. Of course the pain would not disappear but it is less pain.  I felt I cough up little phelgm up as well even though I lied down.  The second day was the day when the phelgm and infection started develop.  My phelgm became color but it was not difficult to get rid off because I used the pipe over the night time when I woke up at night by pain and cough and I immediately graped my pipe and use it on the laying down position till I felt asleep.  My nose start running, I could see I got an infection now and my chest is tight and full with phelgm.  I kept using the pipe as often as I could and I could blow my nose and cough up the phlegm out easily.  The throat was no pain but the infection was developed.  During Wednesday and Thursday, I kept busy about using the pipe, blow my nose and cough up the infectious stuff from my chest.  During the night, it was the worst that the nose was blocked up.  I managed to inhale the air from the pipe from the nose even though at first it was hard because nose was full with liquid stuff.  Fortunately, I had 2 saltpipes with me, I placed 2 pipes close to my nose and inhale the air from both pipes while I lied down on the bed.  I repeated it which I did not know how long till I felt that both nose were clear and I could get to sleep without taking breath through my mouth.  I woke up some time during the night because of cough and I graped the pipe and use it over the nose till I slept.  Amazingly, on Friday, my nose was still running but the color of liquid and phelgm changed.  It became clear and did not have sign of infection how ever my nose was running all day.  I kept using the pipe and did the same way when I went to bed.  Today is Saturday, I am getting better.  My nose is clearer and not so bad.  A few cough but the condition is much better.

As the user of the pipe, I would say this pipe is so amazing even though I have used it form more than 2 years but some time I was a bit lazy.  I felt it is very natural and very very effective.  I do not need to go to see teh doctor to get the antibiotic even though I knew I got a chest infection.  I belive that my body can work out and I let it go and using the salt air to help to disinfect those bacteria.  If it was in the past, I would start to take the dose of antibiotic immediately when I saw the color phelgm.

I just would like to share my experience and would like to convince people who having this pipe to use it regularly.  Even though it could not solve the exact problem what you expect from the pipe straight away, I would say it still can help but the the greal deal of help is start slowly and sometimes we cannot feel.  Like me, I am not asthmatic, I should say I do not need this pipe at all but since I used it, it helps me to survive the terrible colds and I have not seen my doctors since 2005.  My breathing is more efficient because breathing through the pipe slow my breathing down and allow my body to absorb the oxygen as well.

I hope my surviving from cold experience will be helpful for several people and who already got our pipes. 

Be healthy for all of us.

In the memory of my grandmom

August 27th, 2007

On 24 th  August 4 years ago, I lost my grandmom whose age was 94.  My grandmom is the great woman for me.  She is Chinese who was born in China in Zan Tao province which is the poor area.  She was sold by her mother to my grandfather’s family at the age of 5 years old.  She had been worked as servant in my grandad’s family which is a decent family which my great grand parents are people working with local authority.  My grandmom had to work hard.  Her job was cooking, going to forest to find food and wood.  She eventually married with my granddad and had a son.  Later on my granddad decided to come over to Thailand during Zun Yad Zen Presidency.  In Zan Toa, life was full with poverty and some of my granddad’s friend who immigrate to Thailand told him to come over to Thailand which full with jobs and prosperity.  After my granddad left, my grand mom had not heard from him and did not know how he was and then decided to take my uncle to come over to looking for my granddad in Thailand.

My grandmom told me that she was on the boat and sat beside the chimney of th boat.  No food and hygenic but full with hope that Thailand would be the new life that my granddad was there.  When she arrived to Thailand, she had no clue where granddad was.  She just tried to find him by asking his friends and accidentally one day they met each other at the majestic field outside the grand palace in Bangkok.

Life in Thailand was not on the dream what she thought.  It was even harder especially communication that Thai people speak Thai but she could not speak even a word.  She is a fighter and trying to learn everything.  She had never given up thing because she must look after her family.  My grandmom has 5 sons and 3 daughters but 2 of them died.  Life was tough and she fought for it. 

She passed away on 24th August 2003 with lung cancer.  I went back home during the time she was in CCU.  She also had heart problems but the lung cancer was more severe.  It was at the final stage when we knew it in 2003.  I always suspect that during the time when she did her job about making the piggy bank and paint it, she must inhaled lots of chemical to her lung and as we know safety and regulation in the past was nothing that people will care about.  To live is more important.  She did not know that she had cancer and I was there to share some time to look after her and she still taught me several thing about life.  She told that  “To do good thing must get the good thing back and never give up to do good thing even though we cannot see the result.”  I left her back to England one week before she passed away.  She did not fear on the death because she told me that everyone must die.  I gave her a hug and said I love her and if she was not scare of the death I was not worry about her.  I am glad to be her granddaughter and will see and remember her as example for my life.

“You are away. One day you come back, you will not see me anymore” She said everytime when I went to visit her.  “You always with me.  You can see me from the sky and I always see you from my heart and remember the love from you.” I always replied her.

Now, she is right.  I cannot see her anymore but she is still with me, in my memory.  Doing the saltpipe is an encouragement from her who suffered from breathing problems and develop to be cancer.  When customers talked to me about their symptoms, I fully understand how they feel because I can see what my grandmom suffering with especially using the phlegm suction, using inhaler, geing given oxygen.  If I would know saltpipe earlier, at least I can possibly help her to suffer less.  So, I am glad now I am in part of helping lots of people to find relief from breathing problems and I know I do not do it just for money.  I do it because I love it and feel that I can help more or less.

On this occasion, I would like to pay my respect to her even she was not here with me and she still in my mind and being with me until I will not be here. 

From loving granddaughter

AIDS and Saltpipe

August 7th, 2007

In a chilly summer this year 2007, I am thinking several things about the life.  Life is a creation of human being and the next question is what we can do during the time when we still exist.  I am 35 and going to be 36 and one important question is whether I give something back to the society or the world where we live.  Life is uncertain and we do not know whether we will live for tomorrow or even in the next minute. 

Doing Saltpipe is one good thing that I can help people to find relief and also some part of profits what we got, we donate back to the society.  My plan this year is donating to the temple in Thailand called Prabhatnampu Temple http://www.aidstemple.th.org/ .  This temple helps people who have HIV which their families deny them to stay with them.  Some people was taken there and drop as a parcel in front of the gate of the temple.  Some were the last stage of AIDS with their baby or children.  The help from this temple is free and Venerable Alonggot who is an abbot of this place kindly and wholeheartedly help people who suffering with AIDS.  It is not a small project but it is very big and huge responsibility and this place have not got any financial support from the government. Funding for running this place is just from people donations. So, our customers who bought our saltpipes could be proud and happy that you are helping the desperate people with no hope and no life and nobody wants them, to be looked after by money what we are going to donate to this temple.

We are luckier than those people and I am sure we will be happy that we can be useful part to help people and may all good things to my customers.

Salt pipe is so proud with Bronze medal for wheelchair fencing

July 20th, 2007

This week 11-21 July is the week that my husband took a team of wheelchair fencers to Warsaw.  I waited to hear the good news for him everyday however the results are only decent but honestly with the people who just work only 15 months or less in fencing, this is good result.  On Wednesday, I got a good news from him that Phil went to semi and eventually he got bronze medal.  It is the first medal in European Championship ever that Great Britain can make.  No one else have done it before.  Being honest, wheelchair fencing in GB is really bad comparison to the other nations.  No support even in the people in the organisation.  Lots of politics around which I really hate it when my husband has to get involve. 

By the way, this result means so much to Phil.  Lee, his team mate, told my husband that Phil went to sleep last night with the medal still hanging on his neck.  I am sure it is the best event in his life which with his disability if he was not fence, he could not get achievement and being proud about it.

Cisca saltpipe has helped us a lot especially giving my husband to work with them Lee, Phil, Rob and Chirs. This is also down to our customers who buy these pipes.  Your money have given these wheelchair fencers a chance to get into sport and being happy.

I hope this Bronze medal will also make you proud of him.

Alex likes Elipipe!

July 10th, 2007

Alex is one of my fencers.   She is lovely girl and working hard person. From last travelling with her in  fencing compeition, I recognise she coughed and complained about sore throat.  I gave her an Elipipe on the day when we went down to the competition for England Championship.  She really liked the Elipipe and keep using it even during the competition.  She won on the day and she said I really like Elipipe and it keep me calm and relax in the competition.

 

3 English Champions thanks to Salt pipe customers

July 8th, 2007

This weekend was a success weekend for me and my husband.  Our fencers got gold medals in each category U13 boy, U13 girl and U15 boy.  The opportunity to be good fencing coach in this country is hard because lots of coaches have to make their own living which at the end of the day they may not be able to give the best to everyone because they have to live.

I had never realised that I was going to be a coach.  I love fencing and at that time my goal is finish my Phd and being somebody in academic.  Of course, working like that does not give anytime to do anything else just work work and work!. 

Salt pipe gives me new life by running this business as well as teaching fencing. I can help lots of young children to fence as well as can let me support some fencers who are really talented but not strong financial background.  To be good fencers costs lots of money as well as other sports like tennis.  Lots of training, fencing tournament and equipment costs fortune to parents.  We lived in Northeast “The Far Corner” which makes more difficulties to get sponsors and money from government to develop this sport.  Now, I can help them by giving sufficient training without extra cost from the parents. 

I thanks to Saltpipe and the most important thing BIG THANK YOU! to all my customers who use this Cisca Saltpipe.  Every pipe the customer bought, it has been giving fencing support. You all are the major part of supporting these young fencers and you are the real sponsors to the children in this society to do sport and not hanging around on the street.  You are helping children to learn discipline and feel responsibility toward the sport that it will help them to be good adult people in the future.

Now, you could be proud you are the part of these 3 Trophies.  Thank you for you all.
