  • Though ideology professes that 'looks don't matter', culture has always revered physical beauty. Marilyn Monroe is most remembered for her incredible, voluptuous appearance. New Jersey's governor, who entertains presidential aspirations, while enduring relentless jokes about his size, recently underwent gastric-band surgery to lose weight that diet alone did not impact. Fashion magazines elevate the current 'IT' girl to superstar stature on the basis of her look. A lean, toned body is associated with self-control and discipline. A Blush bikini celebrates a healthy body and the determination that made it so.

    The Blush enterprise began in 2000 in a Singapore retail space of 2,700 square feet, where it quickly grew to become the leading boutique for fine lingerie. As popularity exploded, supply and demand necessitated a move, where 6,000 square feet of retail space housed their business in Malaysia. The exquisite designer lines with a proven reputation for quality and innovation, continues to move the company forward in the marketplace.

    Young, energetic and ambitious, Blush is on a mission to become the ultimate shopping destination for the most desired upscale lingerie in their region at an affordable cost. Ingenious inspiration has resulted in their own brand lines that carry products designated for the specific fitting needs of Asian clientele.

    From design concept to the beach, the brand's swimwear collections range in brevity, colors, patterns and style, yet reveal a univ...

  • Payer For Healing For Believers

    Community, Environmental Design

    You may have heard about people living by faith. Well, faith is such a powerful thing that is highly regarded among Christians. With each passing day presenting new twist to life, believers have identified the best way to stay well. They are saying a prayer for healing.

    Faith curing is not a new feature in Christianity. Christ himself healed many people through faith and even said that with faith, his followers could do more. So basically, faith healing is quickly taking center stage in cutting down on medical bills. And indeed, prayer has proven to be very effective in giving people a new lease of life.

    Whatever the case, a Christian knows that through benediction everything is possible. The possibility of everything through prayers is demonstrated by Christ Jesus himself through his life here on earth. He prayed and healed the sick. He prayed and raised the dead and he prayed to feed the hungry. There are a lot more examples to draw from the bible.

    It is generally believed that strong believers will get what they want while those with weak faith can stumble and fall several times. So, someone who does not see results with a dose of prayer could well be thought of as weak believer. But just before making such conclusion, it is important to remember that matters of good health or death are the prerogative of God. No man can compel Him.

    This is to say that while God would hear prayers, He does things according to His will and of course with good lessons for those who remai...
