    Power of Perception writers with Cindy C. Murray

    in Spirituality


    I’ve lived in San Diego most my life and love it here!  I have a Business Degree from Cal Poly, Pomona and started to work in marketing at Hewlett-Packard Co. after graduation.  I was able to use my creativity and writing skills in my job as a trade show specialist at H.P.    I’m married and have two daughters that are in college who have inspired me to write Young Fiction/Middle Grade chapter books.  As I would volunteer in their classes, I would notice that many students would struggle as they read chapter books.  I also noticed that the books they liked to read the most were books that had action, adventure, and many were mysteries.  I observed from raising my kids that the better they could read, the easier it was to keep up in their classes in middle school, high school and college.  Therefore, I began to create my characters and eventually write a series of chapter books called The Adventures of Sophie and Scottie. The feedback I’ve been getting from students in grades 3 and up has been amazing!  The readers can relate to the main characters, Sophie and Scottie, as well as the support characters that can be almost anything!  I’m inspired from the feedback and the awards I’ve received to continue with this series.  I have two books published: Sophie and Scottie’s Adventures of the Monarch Mystery, and Sophie and Scottie’s Adventures of Something’s Fishy.  My third book, Sophie and Scottie’s Adventures of Sweet Tooth Rock is now in editing.

    Taipei, Taiwan's Bustling Lunar(Chinese)New Year Shopping Center-Dihua Street

    in Travel

     


    Dihua Street or Grocery Street is where many residents of Taipei, Taiwan head to for stocking up on food, snacks and treats for the Lunar New Year, or Chinese New Year. I recently visited the famous shopping market just two days before New Year’s Eve. I was there to shop, sample food, indeed why many people pay a visit and talk to some Taiwanese about why they enjoy Lunar New Year.


    Dihua market, for most of the year is Dihua Street-a center in Taipei for traditional Chinese medicinal herbs, fabrics, incense, and Taiwanese tea processing. First constructed in 1850, it’s original name was Center Street.


    This is the busiest time of year for Dihua street, with extra food stalls and vendors using all kinds of tactics to get your attention. Most of which are pretty friendly.


    Sampling is big here and many people come just to load up on the freebies. If you’re new to the food of Taiwan it’s a great place to learn about some of the traditional snacks and newer items with ingredients that can range from peanuts to dried fish.


    It’s Taiwan, so of course there’s always someone cooking food around the corner.


    The southern portion of Dihua is the oldest street in Taipei, dating back to Dutch rule from 1624-1661.


    In Taiwan many markets were built around temples and Dihua is no exception with worshippers getting in their last wishes for the year, or perhaps a good start to the new year.

    HEAVENLY ENCOUNTERS: Are You My Soulmate? (Part 1)

    in Spirituality

    Just in time for Valentine’s Day, we are delving into the topic of LOVE and how it plays into our Divine Connection to the Other Side. People deeply in love often claim that they have found their Soulmate, but is it really true? Fewer have heard about Twin Flames, which actually are the other half of your OWN soul.


    Our guests Cynthia Becker and Bill Weber are Twin Flames who have chosen to incarnate together on Earth. We'll hear about their amazing journey together and how we all can deepen the love within our own relationships.


    No show is complete without discussing the “pre-life” planning stage before we incarnate and how all those random encounters, may not have been left up to chance.


    Cynthia is a renowned intuitive and both her and Bill are Master Practitioners and certified trainers of NLP. Bill is also the author of “Make Love Beautiful” and “Choose Me", a collection of poems written for his love, Cynthia. Together, they travel and teach together in cities across North America.

    Cycling The Megalopolis of Seoul, South Korea

    in Travel

    Can’t think of a better thing to do when hanging out in a super modern city like Seoul, South Korea then to go for a bike ride. It’s a great way to see another side of life here besides the typical tourist things  like visiting temples, museums and going shopping plus it’s so up close to everyday life here.


    I actually got my idea for this ride from the latest Lonely Planet Korea guide with a few modifications to the route. Let’s call them accidental modifications.  I started out from Yeouido Park where you can rent bikes starting at 3000 won an hour, about $2.50 USD. Yeouido is considered the mecca for cycling in Seoul.


    First stop was the Mapo Bridge where there is a designated cycle path making it safe and convenient to check out the views.


    The Han River is the fourth longest river on the Korean Peninsula with a total length of almost 500km. This river was once a very large trade route with China through the Yellow Sea however due to estuary location at the borders of North and South Korea the river is no longer actively used for navigation. 


    An exit ramp from the other side of the bridge takes you to the north side of the river with great cycling paths. Keeping to the left on this path will continue your journey along the Han River. The destination for this cycle is the Seoul World Cup Stadium, built for the FIFA World Cup in 2002.


    A great view of the beautiful domed National Assembly Building across the river. the legislative branch of the South Korean national government.


    Keep riding along the path past this cliff and under the Yanghwa and Seongsan Bridges.


    Excerpts from "Cycling The Megalopolis Of Seoul".

    Bats, Beauty, Arts And Culture-Battambang, Cambodia

    in Travel

    It’s often overlooked or just a mere stopover to or from Siem Reap, home of the famous ruins of Angkor Wat but Battambang Cambodia should be on your radar of places to visit in this country. Full of Khmer culture, early 20th century French architecture and a unique charm unlike anywhere else in Cambodia. Join me John Saboe for an exploration in and around Battambang, Cambodia in this episode of Far East Adventure Travel Podcast.


     


    Probably the number one site to visit in Battambang, Cambodia is the world-famous bamboo train. Made from left-over tank wheels, small-powered engines and a bamboo platform it’s a metaphor for the people of this country who’ve adapted and overcome incredible devastation and hardship to their culture and way of life. But this town, the second-largest in the country has so much more to offer. On my last trip through Cambodia I stayed in Battambang for several days exploring the town and discovering it’s charm.


     


    To find out a little bit more about Battambang from a native’s perspective and why it’s so appealing I spoke with artist Kchao Touch, who also owns the wonderfully eclectic Jewel In The Lotus Antique and Arts Shop in the arts quarter.


     


    The sounds of a memorial can quickly fade out to a wedding celebration, sometimes lasting for three days. Most Cambodian weddings are now only celebrated on a single day. This memorial in Battambang lasted for several days.


     


    Another uniquely Southeast Asian tradition respected every day in Battambang is the morning alms. For good luck lay people bring a food offering to the local Buddhist monks that wander the town in return for a blessing.
