手工皂症候群

手工皂症候群就像病态一样几乎每几天都想做皂…fys我会学手工皂也是因为我皮肤 敏感和对冷制皂非常好奇所以就这样报名了….接着皂材, 模型,书本就越买越多(想到都觉得可怕) …可是现在觉得有基本皂材就好了, 不需要那么浪费钱……. 太多的地方要take note… 所有 Highlight 文字都我亲身体验过–出错过的地方所以会特别叮咛大家要注意  (给你一个概念冷制皂做法+配方) — 只需要油脂、NaOH、水3种材料

油脂 + 水+ 碱 = 皂

*氫氧化鈉 ( 其它名称: NaOH / Lye /SODIUM HYDROXIDE/ 碱 ) 真的非常危险 -建议大家最好先上个基础班才来在家自己量碱

14193664_10154650289853128_166113994_n.jpg

 

< 经典马赛皂 l Classic Marseille Soap > 这配方是最基本的也就是大家所说的橄榄皂

  • Olive oil 150g
  • Palm oil  24g
  • Coconut oil 24g  
  • Water – 73g
  • Lye -29g
  • (皂量大约 : 190g )

Step 1:  带上goggle, 手套和预备好所有的皂模 ,杯子, 电子秤,温度计, 刮刀, 搅拌器, 不锈锅..

把水和碱量好然后进行溶解 ( 使用冰块, 温度不会上升到100°…冷制皂吗~ 当然保持低温咯 )

做皂的前几天我都会事先结好冰块 (记得:  Lye to water, Lye一定要完全溶解 )

Step 2:  量好配方的油脂 – (coconut,palm,olive ) 

然后把所有的油脂搅拌在一起

DSCN4570

Step3把油脂搅拌一起后, 待油温和碱的温度下降到45°以下,  开始进行油脂+碱混合了

将碱液倒入油脂内然后开始搅拌   (记得:  Lye water to Oil / 油温和碱温度只可以相差 10°)

DSCN4570

10369571_713706078670953_8158409480864163128_n Step 4: 耐心的搅拌- 搅拌至油脂和碱混合在一起,  皂液上会出现  

( light trace -在皂液上画个8 字的痕迹 ) – 在light trace 的时候可以加入粉类/精油

继续搅拌到皂液浓稠也就是trace — 就可以把皂液倒入皂模了

Step 5: 把皂型放入盒子保温 (24小时-皂化) , 1-2天就可以切皂+凉皂了

凉皂 – 40天后就可以使用了 (ph paper – 绿色就 ok了)

建议 / 注意事项 / 疑问:

  1. 如果不小心被碱喷到眼睛或皮肤, 赶快用水冲洗然后看医生
  2. 为何会松糕?   碱太多
  3. 为何出现白粉?  保温做的不够好 or 潮湿 or 很多原因
  4. 如果皂太软怎么办? 没得怎么办…放多几天咯 (我有试过放一个星期皂才开始硬)
  5. 保温的时候, 皂突然很烧 ?  正常,皂在进行皂化  (Saponification)
  6. 做皂最好在屋外/ 空气流通的地方因为溶碱的时候碱会释放一种很难受的气味 **远离小孩
  7. 不想自己计算配方的话可以使用这个: soap calculator 
  8. 用玻璃棒, 不锈钢或汤匙之类的不被碱腐蚀的工具搅拌
  9. 记得:  Lye to water (如果不遵守这个规则的话–化学作用会产生爆炸,因为碱和水会产生高温)
  10. 做皂可以用自来水吗?  不能 ,需要用 Drinking water / Distilled water /osmosis water   ( 任何超市都有卖 )  我自己是用 Distilled water
  11. 碱的纯度-我本身使用 98% ( NaOH chips ) -chips 溶化数度比较快
  12. 最好使用纯度高的碱    ∴纯度高就越干净
  13. 如果想买书本让自己肯深入的了解不同的配方..可以看看这本书:  女巫阿娥的超萬能手工皂             (买了好几本我本人觉得这本最好了-配方简单, 很details, 配方种类多)
  14. 添加物比例= [ 油重量 x 2 % ]     , 比例是 1-2%

The bumpy car road trip to Castell d’ Alaro, Spain l 西班牙之驾车冒险记

我们在Aeropalma Airport, Spain 租了一辆出租车准备要去Castell d’ Alaro。我们前一天就上网预定了 record go  ( 上网顶可以拿到跟便宜的价格 ) 在那里可以租 mercedes, lamborgini , 重点是快又方便!!  我们租3天…哈哈..我们租的是小小smart car。在拿到车的时候我和阿pam 把整辆车上下左右拍照。听朋友说一些出租公司会故意”找事情”然后要我们赔钱而且是天文数字那一种勒(可是没发生)。

*记得哦如果你有租车的打算一定要把车每一部分拍起来

22 hours overnight train journey from Malaysia to Bangkok

Thai overnight train, 22 hours journey We bought ticket one month before we go to BKK from Ktm train station at Tampin. Train to Bangkok cant online purchase because it was BKK train, so we need to go to the nearest station to purchase. You can purchase 60 days before depart. If you want to know more details, this is the website Click here We travel at Penang around 5-6 days then we move to Bangkok from Penang ktm train station. Our train from Penang to Bangkok is 2.30pm so reach the train station about 1.20pm. As i know this is an express train to Bangkok.. but.. after a ride..this is the slowest train ever-.-“”    —36-Ekspres Antarabangsa a Thai aircon second class berth —  okie dokey! here we go 22 hours journey.. This train service is a budget type of travelling, lower is slightly expensive then upper bunk MYR 111.90 but still cheaper than the air ticket.. haha but is worth for experience once in a life time.

How to buy KTM train ticket from Penang to Bangkok, Thailand ? rm1

Penang, Malaysia > Hualampong train station,Bangkok

So is a long day for us. fayevoyage5 Thank goodness i bought 2 bottle of water, bread and some rice dumpling, there is no train canteen but there is a guy he sell food and beers at the train with a higher price. A plate of noodle cost you  ( 200 Bath ) but i order porridge and sandwich for the next day breakfast, all i can say is the porridge and orange juice is ” TOO SALTY + SWEET” !! ohmaigat!

Our dinner

fayevoyage10 Around 7pm, the attendant will come to transform your seat into bed with blanket, pillow and curtain. This is the most excited part when its come to transform our seat within a minutes!  Although the train is bit noisy and shaky but its okay..me and pam we had a deeeeep sleep. yeahh we survive! Lower bunk is better because the bed is larger than the upper bunk bed and more convenience.

fayevoyage9Tadaaa!!!

fayevoyage12Good morning! I love the sightseeing.. you had to experience yourself..

DSCN7922

fayevoyage14 We had a great sleep plus the scenery that i cant find in my country 🙂 fayevoyage13 Do bring some tissue paper with you.. ermm..i had to hold my breath while taking this picture fayevoyage15 We reach Hualampong station at afternoon. The first things we reach there is to figure out how to get to our hostel at Surasak road. Click here for further post

What I’d recommend: Bring some junk food, bread, books, power bank to charge your electronic device..you will get bored after some time. and do bring tissue paper or wet tissue and hand sanitizer  with you. fy

How to buy KTM train ticket from Penang to Bangkok, Thailand ?

fayevoyage88 Me and Pam will travel to Penang & Bangkok, so we plan to experience something new which is take a  train from Penang to Bangkok  ( around 22 hours journey , but truly unforgettable experience 😀 for us ) so we plan to buy train ticket one month before we travel. Gonna share some experience how we buy our train ticket from KTM train company. We travel from malacca to Tampin ( which is a small town ) they had a KTM train station. Last month i just make a phone call, ktm staff said they don’t sell it via online  because that is a Thailand service, so we travel to Tampin ktm station to purchase ticket. We can buy 60 days before the actual date. As i know, not every place had KTM office so i need to travel to some places to purchase train ticket  — available at penang, Kuala Lumpur , Tampin and some places. KTM website , OR  easybook.com  RM111.90 – Lower Bunk, RM106 – Upper bunk Better choose lower bunk because upper the size is smaller. If you need to go Tampin for purchasing ticket here is the map of Tampin Bus Terminal to Pulau Sebang Railway Station

***Update February 2020 

i google search again, i believe there is no longer direct train from Butterworth to Bangkok. which mean we have to take 2 train example as below:

Review: Saphaipae Hostel,Bangkok : We Had A Deep Sleep

i love my stay at Sapahaipae Hostel . i read some blogger they said this is the most huge hostel in BKK 🙂 I booked thru hostelbookers.com one month before i go to Bangkok, is better to book hostel with hostelbooker because they do not have booking fees and is cheaper than hostelworld and agoda. Saphaipae worker is nice and when i email them to reserve a lower bunk they reply me in 5 minutes…( that pretty fast huhh..)  We stay at 8 ladies dorm for 5 nights. Yeahh i prefer dorm because i can save more money for food and i will get know dozen of people from different country.

saphaipae

shI felt very secure, they provided us a card to access our dorm at second floor and no man are allow in our floor. This place is really suitable for girls traveler. Our room is full and everyday we meet lotsa new friends from other countries, if you did not stay dorm before. you must try stay at least once in your lifetime XD.oh yahh!  i had a nightmare, one of our roommates is a china girl. She always naked or just wearing  a super tiny underwear and walking around the hostel. omg..that’s the weirdest person i meet in our hostel. Our dorm is kinda dark at night, thank god i brought a small torch light with me, especially at night when everybody is sleeping and all the light are dim. ( The picture has been edited to back lighting, so actually the room is dark  ) you can have a better view.

One thing i love is the HUGE locker, it can fit at least a big backpack inside.

sh3

sh5 DSCN8119 DSCN8127 Saphaipae is really near to surasak skytrain with a walking distance and is nearby to 7eleven store. We always buy mineral water and junk food at there. If you prefer quiet and far from crowded place, ill recommended this hostel to you because this place is near to skytrain and you can walk around with taxi and skytrain.. kinda convenience here. Saphaipae staff is not really good in advice and they give us false travel information, thank goodness me and pam found a police and she gave a travel map and teach us how to find the place. Bangkok had a terrible air pollution and their weather a super duper warm, we saw most of the local pupil they wearing face mask. Advice: Bring your pad lock, and you can buy washing powder from counter
