How to: Fresh Orange Juice & Eggless Strawberry Pie :)

Written by Jiny on .

This weekend have been so good, with yummy food and full of relaxation and mindful spirituality. My brother has just completed his B.Sc., and is now an engineer in Architectural Design – so proud of him :)

He picked me up at the station last Friday, and we went to Herning Centret for shopping. Unfortunately, we didn’t find anything interesting, but I decided to buy some strawberries to make a strawberry pie the following day.

I started the Saturday off  with fresh made orange-lemon juice for my brother and I:

OOTD: Going traditional

Written by Jiny on .

 

I recently wrote about a Accharya Abishekam in which my family and I participated. As you know, I think sarees a so beautiful, but I’m never that much comfy in wearing them. Or yes, I AM comfy but I feel so old – I’m very young in mind, you know :P

Anyways, the day before I was very confused about what to wear, and my mum was definitely not happy that I was going to wear a very simple salwar khameez. So I immediately changed my mind and picked up this beautiful tri-green colours saree. As this one’s blouse has the same colours I did not stitch the blouse for it, and have decided to wear a pink blouse for get some contrasting that will pep the whole suit up. I should’ve worn this saree for the Thaer festival last year in Herning, and I had pleated it and stitched it as a “lehenga”, but still never managed to wear it properly, so I wore another one instead. So I was actually wearing this green saree for the first time. The material is cotton, and if you’ve not pleated this material weel you’ll definitely mess it up! The pink blouse was in a poly silk-cotton combo material.

This is what I wore:

Here’re some close ups of the saree blouse – stitched by my mum and I. I made the crocheting part in golden yarn and adding some pearls, and the piping on the blouse. The blouse was made last year for the Temple festival.

Event: Deekshai, becoming a Saivite and Shivaachaarya

Written by Jiny on .

 

junefunction10Last Saturday my family and I were invited to a Shivaachaarya Abishekam for the main temple iyer in Sri Nagapoosani Amman Aalayam in Aabenraa. I’ve been to several other Shivaachaarya Abishekam, as my family have a close friendship to many “iyer-families” – probably because we’re so much in to temple stuff and is a highly religious family. Manye people think what this “Shivaachaarya Abishekam” is, so let me explain ;)

Basically everyone’s born as a “ordinary hindu”, and those people are actually not allowed to wear the thiruneeru (viboothi) as the thiripundaram (the wellknown 3 lines on the forehead). So what should you do become a “real” saivite?

In Hinduism, or rather said Saivism, you can get Deekshai. The word Deekshai (or Deeksha) means “to destroy the ego and give wisdom”, and this is actually a kind of ritual where a guru performs some specific religious rituals after which the guru teaches the disciple the specific mantras and other chores that should be perform every day.

Go herbal, eat clean

Summertime means fruit time! I love eating fruits, especially berries – they’re so incredibly yummy! Can eat them all day, and of course strawberries and blueberries are my faves :) This weekend was full of loads of activity, and while coming home I felt like eating berries. My friend and I went to the nearest coop where I found a package of berries mix, containing strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. Yum!

I’m almost 100% against medications and other kinds of drugs. Even in my case they failed, but then Ayurveda (YES!!) herbs helped me to control body and to get a normal, PCOS-free life. Unbelievable, right? However, it’s true. This doesn’t mean I hate doctors, I respect them. But still I'm definitely not in to the use of medications, that cause more side effects than benefits.

Time to party, it's summer

Living alone is not that simple, if you’re the type that loves to be surrounded by many. I’ve been living alone the past 7 years (OMG!), and I still remember how difficult it was in the beginning. Moving to a new place, where you don’t have any friends, and start to create a new network of friends was not that easy. I actually had difficulties in making friends, and I still have. However, by time I learned to make it, and now have friends in many places ;)

I really enjoy spending time with people and have fun. I know many describe me as crazy, but that’s how I am :P What’s life without fun ;)

Okay – yesterday we had the “summer party” at my work, and I was in this “party committee”/planning group. Unfortunately, I couldn’t be there to all the meetings, as I had patients, but I think I still did a very good job. I suggested kickball if the weather was good – and it did – and as we planned to play bingo, I bought the gifts for this game too, and helped as much as I could.

Here are some pictures from yesterday’s event. It was so much fun, and I guess everyone enjoyed the party. First we started eating cake (I didn’t, as it was Friday), and we then went to the University Park in Aarhus to play kickball. This was funny, and we enjoyed playing and watching each other running after the ball :P Look at my lovely “gold tattoo” btw!

It’s finally summer!! :D

Later we got back “home” and had dinner. I was not that much surprised with the food, as I, being a veggie, could not eat anything but pasta. Hm.. Anyways, I still enjoyed the time with my colleagues ;)

I and 3 other girls later went to the town on another restaurant, and I was back home very late. Was so tired that I immediately fell asleep :P

L and I had planned to catch up with 2 other former study mates today, but unfortunately, it didn’t happen, as one of the girls had to cancel it. So L and I decided to go for a walk, guess we walked about 5 km’s first, and then went to JNTJ to get some lunch and juice. This was so yummy :) We hereafter went for shopping, and I bought some new shoes from TOMS. I like their concept of giving away a pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair purchased. Amazing, isn’t it?

After the shopping we went down the streets and watched people getting ready for the Aarhus Pride and many politicians using this opportunity to get votes :P We walked home, and relaxed for an hour, and then went out for dinner, and walked the way home. I guess we’ve walked about 10-11 km’s today ;)

Now relaxing with a bowl of berries. It’s summer and I’m healthy! :D

Have a great evening! :)
