Horray~ I am here at Art Science Museum again, hmm so what's my plan today?

Please watch this short animated film before you start reading this post:

You know I love to visit museum to see the exhibits, at that moment I was so excited to go and take a look at the exhibits and today I finally got the time to go there together with Maoqi.

Turquoise

Wednesday, December 19, 2012
I am so obsessed with horoscope lately, most of the time I will read about other people horoscope just to understand their personality better. When I went to read up on myself "Sagittarius" I found out that my birthstone is Turquoise. Just nice I need a new body jewellery and have no idea what to buy so I thought why not get something related to me. I order a belly ring from US 2 week ago and receive it today, kind of love it as this is my first time wearing a gemstone.

This is a real turquoise belly button ring. Turquoise is a known as the purification stone. It protects against outside influences or pollutants in the atmosphere; Turquoise gemstones are worn to dispel negative energy.

There are many other healing properties of Turquoise, I hope after wearing it I will have good luck and good health ^^
