free online auctions

Lately I am addicted to buying from online store. Tell you, I can shop crazily if no one was there to stop me or nagging at me. The items that sell online, especially kids stuff like hair pin or clips, simple lovely. Each time I will end up buying more than I expected. Hahaha...

There are few free online auctions available now. Due to high competition in internet now, therefore many offer such service, so we the consumer indirectly can benefit from it. Good idea ya. Of course, buying online is buy at our own risk too. You will have to pray hard after buying, so that the parcel will reach you safely.

Lepak-ing at home

It's school holiday now. The girls are lepak-ing at home. Since we just back from Cameron a week before the school holiday, hence no more travel trip for the kids during the one week break. They did ask for outing but papa said no more outing now, better rotting at home. LOL

Well, we did assign them to do some simple homework. But they did not take our instruction seriously. I need to call them to remind them, else after back from work, I am sure the homework still is a empty page.

Well, coming long weekend will bring them hang around in town.... of course not forget to bring the mask!

Baby gift for her

I am real busy lately. Until I don’t know how to schedule my work and time table now. part of the reason is due to my girl was having term exam now, so I have to allocate some time for her; to do revision and go through some mock papers. I believe through doing more mock papers will help her in her studies. I confess now. I am using some of my office hour to do personal thing now. However I only do it during lunch break. Not too much, right? :)

One of hubby's colleagues going to give birth soon. I know her too. We are thinking to buy something for her. Some suggested baby sling or pouch; some suggested Baby Bedding. Well, we are not sure does she own either one of this or not. Perhaps we should ask her what she want instead of just buy something for her. This is to minimize the waste. No point buys for her something that she already own. It is better to buy something that she really needs it.

She is getting a baby girl soon, so she might be my potential buyer in near future! Hehehe...

Go green

I am a strong supporter for environmental friendly products or concept. I start bringing own Tupperware or container whenever I go to buy food or things, same as go green shopping bag. I plan to sew more fabric bag for myself to go for shopping’s grocery shopping. I should keep some in my car as well as OZ house, so that there is no reason for me not to bring them whenever I go out. :P

I sincerely hope every one of us should go for Green shopping. Try their best to help the earth if possible. There is no reason for us to burden the earth at this moment.

I for ice-cream or iguana?

Back to your olden day now. How you learn "I" last time? Is it "I" for ice-cream? Right? Ya I believe majority of us learning this way.

Surprising, kiddos nowadays aren't. They learn : "I" for Iguana instead of ice-cream!! Frankly, I don't know what is the meaning of iguana at first. I need the silent teacher to tell me....hahahaha.....

Why they want to change from ice-cream to iguana? Don't you think ice-cream is so much easier to remember? Poor kids have to learn difficult wordings at early stage!

Metal tiles

Someone send me email pertaining to metal tiles for kitchen and bathrooms. Wow, there are really nice. Wonder how much will it cost me if I will to do it for my house in future? If it is too costly, I don’t think my hubby will approve the fund. Sob sob….

Take a look at Metal Stainless Tiles website; I am sure you will fall in love with their creation too. I had forward the email to hubby, hopefully he will change his mind after seeing all these pretty tiles. LOL

Online shoes shopper

Previously I am very crazy over shoes. At one time I can own more than 4 pairs of working shoes I tell you. Until one day my hubby commented on me; he say I should not spend money like that. I told him which women do not have more than 1 pair of shoe. If yes, then she must be very conservation or stingy type…hahaha….

Even now I am still a shoe lover, just which I had minimized my purchase to only 2 pairs each time. In fact, I only buy shoes during sale period, so that I can save more. Lately one of my colleagues to buy shoe online. She told me that has wide range of women hoes. The prices quoted are affordable too. Well, I am too skeptic to buy online coz I cannot try before purchase. What if the shoe not comfortable after wearing? Will they accept return and refund? Just wonder……

Tesco & Bintang Melaka - close

Due to many H1N1 cases reported in Tesco & Bintang shopping malls, now these 2 malls had temporary closed down. *sigh*

When can all these stop???

More more rain away the crazy haze............

Also, I should stock up some face mask and hand sanitizer too! I heard that face mask price getting crazy now. These heartless seller take opportunity to earn more from us!

shop online for weight loss products

I have one friend but not so close with her. Only ever talk with her whenever we ever meet up somewhere in town. Another friend of mine told me that she is adventurous type coz she dare to try all sort of products, just to keep her body slim. Most of the time she will check best weight loss pills in internet. If she able to order online, then for sure she will get herself one or two box. Mind you, those weight loss products not cheap at all since she has to buy from countries like US or UK. The shipping cost may kill me, that’s why I seldom buy online unless I can find a very good deal!

Preventing H1N1‏

Received this piece of information from one of the forwarded email, hope to share with you guys!

With the constant fear of H1N1 symptoms, the following measures can be practiced by one and all. This is an information which I just received from a Consultant General Surgeon & Gastoenterologist, based in India and I do hope it could be beneficial to the students and their families alike.

Tamiflu does not kill but prevents H1N1 from further proliferation till the virus limits itself in about 1-2 weeks (its natural cycle). H1N1, like other Influenza A viruses, only infects the upper respiratory tract and proliferates (only) there. The only portals of entry are the nostrils and mouth/ throat. In a global epidemic of this nature, it's almost impossible not coming into contact with H1N1 in spite of all precautions. Contact with H1N1 is not so much of a problem as proliferation is.

While you are still healthy and not showing any symptoms of H1N1 infection, in order to prevent proliferation, aggravation of symptoms and development of secondary infections, some very simple steps - not fully highlighted in most official communications - can be practiced (instead of focusing on how to stock N95 or Tamiflu):

1. Frequent hand-washing (well highlighted in all official communications).

2. "Hands-off-the-face" approach. Resist all temptations to touch any part of face (unless you want to eat, bathe or slap).

3. Gargle twice a day with warm salt water (use Listerine if you don't trust salt). H1N1 takes 2-3 days after initial infection in the throat/ nasal cavity to proliferate and show characteristic symptoms. Simple gargling prevents proliferation. In a way, gargling with salt water has the same effect on a healthy individual that Tamiflu has on an infected one. Don't underestimate this simple, inexpensive and powerful preventative method.

4. Similar to 3 above, clean your nostrils at least once every day with warm salt water. Not everybody may be good at Jala Neti or Sutra Neti (very good Yoga asanas to clean nasal cavities), but blowing the nose hard once a day and swabbing both nostrils with cotton buds dipped in warm salt water is very effective in bringing down viral population.

5. Boost your natural immunity with foods that are rich in Vitamin C (Amla and other citrus fruits). If you have to supplement with Vitamin C tablets, make sure that it also has Zinc/bioflavonoids to boost absorption.

6. Drink as much of warm liquids as you can. Drinking warm liquids has the same effect as gargling, but in the reverse direction. They wash off proliferating viruses from the throat into the stomach where they cannot survive, proliferate or do any harm.

All these are simple ways to prevent, within means of most households, and certainly muchless painful than to wait in long queues outside public hospitals.

I do hope, this information could be passed on to one and all, for a healthy and H1N1 free environment.

Mid Term Exam

Next week (10/08) is the mid term exam for my elder girl. Time is approaching, but I yet to do revision with her. Blame on me coz I only concentrate in my backlog order. So far I only ask hubby's help to look after her homework as well as other exercise books.

Last term she is getting placement of 10/42, with average point at this term I just hope she can improve her placement in class and also get good mark in her BM subject.
