Brown rice is whole grain rice with mild nuty flavor. In the past it is rarely eaten except by the sick and elderly as a cure for constipation. However, it is now well accepted as it is far more nutritious then white rice and becoming more expensive due to shortage.

The reason for me to introduce brown rice is that it is so nutritious for consumption, even the water you use to soak the rice is equally useful.

For cooking brown rice, we need to soak the washed brown rice for at least two hours in warm water (abt 35 - 38 degree C) prior to cooking. It will encourage gemination and activate various enzymes in the rice. You may transfer the rice to the rice cooker with fresh water but do not discard the soaking water. The nutritious water is for your face.

You will notice some residual at the bottom of your soaking bowl. This part (part A) will be for use as face mask. The clearer top liquid (part B) will be use as face wash.

If you face is oily, you can mixed some facial foam to part B and cleans your face. If your skin is normal, just wash with part B liquid. After washing, pad dry your face with a towel. Scoop up part A and spread it evenly on your face as a face mask. Leave it for about 10 - 15 minutes and rinse off . You can immediately feel the smoothness of your skin.

Try it my dear friends. You don't have to span too much money or time doing it as the brown rice facial wash and mask is totally free.

Food for your tummy and nutriants for your face :P

Many thanks to my friend Sharon for sharing with me a program in making little money via reading.

I have joint EmailCashPro and starts earning some money by reading online ads with no cost at all at my end. I will not go into something that I need to pay unless the return is really that good and justifiable. Thus, I go for this which I do not need to fork out any money. Haha…

ECP is a local (Singapore) advertising service company who pays members to view online ads. All you need to do is to sign up as a member. They will send links to ads to you via e-mail according to your interest and profile. (They are earning from advertiser and share some profit to you for viewing.)

You will earn money by clicking on the links and view an ad for a minute. Each view will earn you a point which worth around half a cent. Spend a little bit of your time per day viewing the ads will get you some money.

To earn more, you may enroll your friends or promote your member link (no spamming please). When your friends who enroll as member under your link start viewing their ads, you too will earn referring points which in turns converted to money.
If you think it’s worth trying at no cost, you may sign up via my link -
and I will earn some referring points. Haha….thanks and really appreciate that.

At this moment, they are also giving away bonus to member. You can view some free e-books and articles on topics like golf, babies, finance etc. You may find them interesting and helpful to read on.

Oh Yes…….You might think that half a cent is not much. You will not be rich for this money. But…..hey, it is till money isn’t it. My lovely grandmother keeps reminding me since I was young, “don’t look down on half a cent even though it is that insignificant.”
