A Horrible Fact about KFC

received this email... not sure if it's true...

KFC has been a part of our American traditions for many years.
Many people, day in and day out, eat at KFC religiously.
Do they really know what they are eating?
During a recent study of KFC done at the University of New Hampshire ,
they found some very upsetting facts.
First of all, has anybody noticed that just recently,
the company has changed their name?

Kentucky Fried Chicken has become KFC.
Does anybody know why?
We thought the real reason was because of the 'FRIED' food issue.


The reason why they call it KFC is because they can not use the word chicken anymore
Why? KFC does not use real chickens.
They actually use genetically manipulated organisms.
These so called 'chickens' are kept alive by tubes inserted into their bodies
to pump blood and nutrients throughout their structure.
They have no proper beaks, no feathers, and no proper claws.
Their bone structure is dramatically shrunk to get more meat out of them.
This is great for KFC.

Because they do not have to pay so much for their production costs.
There is no more plucking of the feathers or the removal of the beaks and feet.
The government has told them to change all of their menus
so they do not say chicken anywhere. If you look closely you will notice this.
Listen to their commercials, I guarantee you will not see or hear the word chicken.
I find this matter to be very disturbing.

I hope people will start to realize this and let other people know.
Please forward this message to as many people as you can.
Together we make KFC start using real chicken again.

Be Alert & Careful / ** MUST READ **

Ladies especially be aware .... And also be alert!
We've read about too many nasty stuff happening nowadays to young girls ...

Share with your sisters, daughters,nieces, mothers, and female friends. This Incident has been confirmed.

A man came over and offered his services as a painter to a female putting gas in her car and left his card. She said no ,but accepted his card out of kindness and got in the car.

The man then got into a car driven by another gentleman. As the lady left the service station, she saw the men following her out of the station at the same time. Almost immediately,
she started to feel dizzy and could not catch her breath. She tried to open the window and realized that the odor was on her hand; the same hand which accepted the card from the
gentleman at the gas station.

She then noticed the men were immediately behind her and she felt she needed to do something
at that moment. She drove into the first driveway and began to honk her horn repeatedly to ask for help. The men drove away but the lady still felt pretty bad for several minutes after she could finally catch her breath. Apparently, there was a substance on the card that could have seriously injured her.

This drug is called 'BURUNDANGA' and it is used by people who wish to incapacitate a victim in order to steal from or take advantage of them.

This drug is four times more dangerous than the date rape drug and is transferable on simple cards.

So take heed and make sure you don't accept cards at any given time alone or from someone on the streets. This applies to those making house calls and slipping you a card when they offer their services .

Weather forecast

It was April and the Aboriginals in a remote part of Northern Australia asked their new elder if the coming winter was going to be cold or mild.
Since he was an elder in a modern community he had never been taught the old secrets. When he looked at the sky he couldn't tell what the winter was going to be like.

Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he told his tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the tribe should collect firewood to be prepared.

But being a practical leader, after several days he had an idea.
He walked out to the telephone booth on the highway, called the Bureau of Meteorology and asked, 'Is the coming winter in this area going to be cold?'
The meteorologist responded, 'It looks like this winter is going to be quite
So the elder went back to his people and told them to collect even more wood
in order to be prepared.

A week later he called the Bureau of Meteorology again. 'Does it still look
like it is going to be a very cold winter?'
The meteorologist again replied, 'Yes, it's going to be a very, very cold winter.'
The elder again went back to his community and ordered them to collect every
scrap of firewood they could find.

Two weeks later the elder called the Bureau again. 'Are you absolutely sure
that the winter is going to be very cold?' he asked.
'Absolutely,' the man replied. 'It's looking more and more like it is going
to be one of the coldest winters ever.'
'How can you be so sure?' the elder asked.
The weatherman replied, 'Our satellites have reported that the Aboriginals
in the north are collecting firewood like crazy, and that's always a sure sign.'

Shy, a bit of an introvert. You are more stubborn and like to stay alone quietly at home. To you, talking to strangers is a hard thing so you have not much friends. But you will still have some soulmates. You need to treasure people who care and love you. You are more interested in your own matters, you will try your very best to achieve your target. But you can't do everything alone, and just depend on yourself, learn to open up and accept other opinions. Try to get along with different people.

You are a more active person, drawing a clear line between happiness and unhappiness. You are more quick-tempered. If you encounter things you like, you will do it without second thought. But once you encounter things that you hate, you will wish to get out of it as soon as possible. As you are a person of your own views, the friends you tend to have will be of the same pattern. But once good friends, you will understand them a lot and go all the way to help then. Friends are very dependent on you. As you are too emotional, you may make a storm out of a teacup wit! h your friends. You must learn to do things in order and not give up easily. You can try making friends with those you don't think you can get along with, don't stick with the same category. This will make you more popular and charming.

Gentle like a lamb. You have a high level of adaptance power, easy to get along with people. Very popular in social life but seems that no one will talk bad about you. You hate to have conflicts with people so you
always try to adapt to everyone. You treat every person differently. To look at the bright side, you adapt easily. But to look at the dark side, you lack of character, although you are one big nice guy but you lack of charm. On the surface, you have a lot of friends but once you have troubles, you lack of soulmates to help you around. You must try to express yourself more and be more decisive. In this way, you can understand yourself more.

You are stubborn, like to go in circles and don't get to the point. Once you decide on something, no one can change your mind. You are a good leader in a group so you win a lot of trust from your friends. But as you
are too persistant on your own thinking, you neglect other people's suggestions therefore you can easily make enemies. Although it is good to maintain your own character but it doesn't mean you totally ignore other people's thoughts and feelings. You will let people think you are hard to handle and you will lose friends gradually and may end up alone. You need to learn to accept other people's opinion. This will make your social circle bigger and you will understand yourself better.

Mom replied: "It's on your tail."
So the young lion keeps on chasing after his tail. But after a whole day of trying, he failed to get the happiness that was on his tail.

be with you."

You can't foresee tomorrow, but you can utilize today wisely.
You can't win everything, but you can try your very best to achieve that.

Anger really can kill you

CHICAGO - ANGER and other strong emotions can trigger potentially deadly heart rhythms in certain vulnerable people, US researchers said on Monday.

Previous studies have shown that earthquakes, war or even the loss of a World Cup Soccer match can increase rates of death from sudden cardiac arrest, in which the heart stops circulating blood.

'It's definitely been shown in all different ways that when you put a whole population under a stressor that sudden death will increase,' said Dr Rachel Lampert of Yale University in New Haven , Connecticut , whose study appears in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. 'Our study starts to look at how does this really affect the electrical system of the heart,' Dr Lampert said.

She and colleagues studied 62 patients with heart disease and implantable heart defibrillators or ICDs that can detect dangerous heart rhythms or arrhythmias and deliver an electrical shock to restore a normal heart beat.

Patients in the study took part in an exercise in which they recounted a recent angry episode while Lampert's team did a test called T-Wave Alternans that measures electrical instability in the heart.

Dr Lampert said the team specifically asked questions to get people to relive the angry episode. 'We found in the lab setting that yes, anger did increase this electrical instability in these patients,' she said.

Next, they followed patients for three years to see which patients later had a cardiac arrest and needed a shock from their implantable defibrillator. 'The people who had the highest anger-induced electrical instability were 10 times more likely than everyone else to have an arrhythmia in follow-up,' she said.

Dr Lampert said the study suggests that anger can be deadly, at least for people who are already vulnerable to this type of electrical disturbance in the heart. 'It says yes, anger really does impact the heart's electrical system in very specific ways that can lead to sudden death,' she said.

But she cautioned against extrapolating the results to people with normal hearts. 'How anger and stress may impact people whose hearts are normal is likely very different from how it may impact the heart which has structural abnormalities,' she said. Dr Lampert is now conducting a study to see if anger management classes can help decrease the risk of arrhythmia in this group of at-risk patients.

Sudden cardiac death accounts for more than 400,000 deaths each year in the United States , according to the American College of Cardiology. -- REUTERS

Calcium may cut cancer risk

WASHINGTON - CALCIUM is vital for bone health and may also be important for reducing colorectal cancer risk, according to a US study published on Monday.

Researchers at the US National Cancer Institute tracked 293,907 men and 198,903 women and found that those with the highest calcium intake from dairy and other foods as well as calcium supplements had the lowest colorectal cancer rates.

Yikyung Park of the NCI, part of the National Institutes of Health, said women in the highest fifth of calcium consumption had a 28 per cent lower risk for colorectal cancer compared to those with the lowest fifth of calcium intake.

For men, those in the highest fifth had a 21 per cent lower risk for colorectal cancer than those with lower intake.

The researchers followed the subjects, who were between 50 and 71 years old, for seven years. Those in the study reported extensively on what they ate and what dietary supplements they took.

'For colorectal cancer, both calcium from diet and from supplements reduced the risk of colorectal cancer,' Park, whose findings appear in the journal Archives of Internal Medicine, said in a telephone interview.

Foods with lots of calcium include diary products such as milk and yogurt and leafy green vegetables. Calcium is important in preventing osteoporosis.

The researchers said calcium may reduce abnormal growth in cells in the gastrointestinal tract and may help reduce damage to the mucous membrane in the large intestine.

Two other studies published in the same journal on Monday illustrated possible benefits from B vitamins and vitamin D. In one study, women who took a combination of vitamins B6 and B12 and folic acid were found to have a 34 percent lower risk of age-related macular degeneration after seven years than women who took a placebo.

William Christen of Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston and colleagues said the findings offered strong evidence that folic acid and B vitamin supplements may prevent age-related macular degeneration, a leading cause of vision decline in the elderly. -- REUTERS

Q: I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life; is this true?

A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it... Don't waste them on exercise . Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up your heart will not make you live longer; that's like saying you can extend the life of your car by driving it faster. Want to live longer? Take a nap.

Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?

A: You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a cow eat? Hay and corn. And what are these? Vegetables . So a steak is nothing more than an efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system. Need grain? Eat chicken. Beef is also a good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable). And a pork chop can give you 100% of your recommended daily allowance of vegetable products


Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?

A: No, not at all. Wine is made from fruit. Brandy is distilled wine, that means they take the water out of the fruity bit so you get even more of the goodness that way. Beer is also made out of grain. Bottoms up!


Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?

A: Well, if you have a body and you have fat, your ratio is one to one. If you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc.


Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?

A: Can't think of a single one, sorry. My philosophy is: No Pain...Good!


Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?

A: You're not listening.... Foods are fried these days in vegetable oil. In fact, they're permeated in it. How could getting more vegetables be bad for you?


Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?

A: Definitely not! When you exercise a muscle, it gets bigger. You should only be doing sit-ups if you want a bigger stomach.


Q: Is chocolate bad for me?

A: Are you crazy? HELLO Cocoa beans! Another vegetable. It's the best feel-good food around! !


Q: Is swimming good for your figure?

A: If swimming is good for your figure, explain whales to me.


Q: Is getting in-shape important for my lifestyle?

A: Hey! 'Round' is a shape! !


Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets.

And remember:
"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming!



(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

(3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.
(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

(5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)

(6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless she says 'Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome' .. that will bring on a 'whatever').

(8) Whatever: Is a woman's way of saying F-- YOU!

(9) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to # 3.

* Send this to the men you know, to warn them about arguments they can avoid if they remember the terminology.

* Send this to all the women you know to give them a good laugh, cause they know it's true!!!

Humour -Three Kick Rule

A big city lawyer went duck hunting in rural North Cowra . He shot and dropped a bird, but it fell into a farmer's field on the other side of a fence.

As the lawyer climbed over the fence, an elderly farmer drove up on his tractor and asked him what he was doing. The litigator responded, "I shot a duck and it fell in this field, and now I'm going to retrieve it."

The old farmer Peter replied, "This is my property, and you are not coming over here."

The indignant lawyer said, "I am one of the best trial lawyers in Australia and, if you don't let me get that duck, I'll sue you and take everything you own."

The old farmer smiled and said, "Apparently, you don't know how we settle disputes in North Cowra . We settle small disagreements like this with the 'Three Kick Rule.'

The lawyer asked, "What is the 'Three Kick Rule'?"

The Farmer replied, "Well, because the dispute occurs on my land, I get to go first. I kick you three times and then you kick me three times and so on back and forth until someone gives up."

The lawyer quickly thought about the proposed contest and decided that he could easily take the old codger. He agreed to abide by the local custom.

The old farmer slowly climbed down from the tractor and walked up to the attorney. His first kick planted the toe of his heavy steel-toed work boot into the lawyer's groin and dropped him to his knees!
His second kick to the midriff sent the lawyer's last meal gushing from his mouth. The lawyer was on all fours when the farmer's third kick to his rear end, sent him face-first into a fresh cow pie.

Summoning every bit of his will and remaining strength the lawyer very slowly managed to get to his feet. Wiping his face with the arm of his jacket, he said, "Okay, you old fart. Now it's my turn."

(I love this part)
The old farmer smiled and said, "Nah, I give up. You can have the duck."
When you are educated, you'll believe only half of what you hear.
When you're intelligent, you know which half.


Do you love your parents?

An 80 year old man was sitting on the sofa in his house along with his 45 years old highly educated son.
Suddenly a crow perched on their window.

The Father asked his Son, "What is this?"

The Son replied "It is a crow".

After a few minutes, the Father asked his Son the 2nd time, "What is this?"

The Son said "Father, I have just now told you "It's a crow".

After a little while, the old Father again asked his Son the 3rd time, What is this?

At this time some expression of irritation was felt in the Son's tone when he said to his Father with a rebuff... "It's a crow, a crow".

A little after, the Father again asked his Son the 4th time, "What is this?"

This time the Son shouted at his Father,
"Why do you keep asking me the same question again and again, although I have told you so many times 'IT IS A CROW'.
Are you not able to understand this?"

A little later the Father went to his room and came back with an old tattered diary,
which he had maintained since his Son was born. On opening a page, he asked his
Son to read that page. When the son read it, the following words were written in the diary :-

"Today my little son aged three was sitting with me on the sofa, when a crow was sitting on the window. My Son asked me 23 times what it was, and I replied to him all 23 times that it was a Crow. I hugged him lovingly each time he asked me the same question again and again for 23 times. I did not at all feel irritated I rather felt affection for my innocent child".

While the little child asked him 23 times "What is this", the Father had felt no irritation in
replying to the same question all 23 times and When today the Father asked his Son the
same question just 4 times, the Son felt irritated and annoyed.


If your parents attain old age, do not repulse them or look at them as a burden, but speak to
them a gracious word, be cool, obedient, humble And kind to them. Be considerate to your parents.

From today say this aloud, "I want to see my parents happy forever. They have cared for me ever since I was a little child.
They have always showered their selfless love on me.
They crossed all mountains and valleys without seeing the storm and heat to make me a

Singaporean on holiday in Malaysia (quite funny)

A Singaporean was on holiday in Malaysia...
He was having his coffee, croissants, bread, butter & jam at the hotel's coffee house.

A Malaysian man who was chewing gum, sat down next to him & started a casual conversation.

Malaysian : "You Singaporeans eat the whole bread?"
Singaporean : "Of course."
Malaysian : "We don't. ?In Malaysia, we only eat what's inside. The crusts we collect in a ontainer, recycle it, transform them into croissants & sell them across to Singapore."

The Malaysian then had a smirk on his face while the Singaporean listened in silence.

Malaysian : "Do you eat the jam with the bread?"
Singaporean : "Of course."
Malaysian (chuckling): "We don't. ?In Malaysia, we eat fresh fruit for breakfast, then we put all the peels, seeds & other left-overs in a container, recycle them, transform them into jam,..... before we sell it across to Singapore."

This time, the Singaporean retorted : "Do you have sex in Malaysia?"
Malaysian : "Why, of course we do"
Singaporean : "Do you wear protection"
Malaysian : "Of course! We wear condoms."
Singaporean : "And what do you do with the condoms once you've used them?"
Malaysian : "Stupid question ! Of course we throw them away."
Singaporean : "We don't. In Singapore, the government secretly puts them in a container, recycle them, melt them down into chewing gum & sell them across to Malaysia,... & that's the real reason why we banned chewing gum in Singapore."

Single, married, engaged

To My Friends Who Are...........SINGLE
Love is like a butterfly. The more you chase it, the more it exludes you.


But if you just let it fly, it will come to you when you least expect it.


Love can make you happy but often it hurts, but love's only special when you give it to someone who is really worth it.


So take your time and choose the best.

To My Friends Who Are............NOT SO SINGLE
Love isn't about becoming somebody else's 'perfect person'.


It's about finding someone who helps you become the best person you can be.


To My Friends Who Are............PLAYBOY/GIRL TYPE

Never say 'I love you' if you don't care. Never talk about feelings if they aren't there.


Never touch a life if you mean to break a heart.


Never look in the eye when all you do is lie.


The cruelest thing a guy can do to a girl is to let her fall in love when he doesn't intend to catch her fall and it works both ways...


To My Friends Who Are............MARRIED

Love is not about 'it's your fault', but 'I'm sorry'.


Not 'where are you', but 'I'm right here'.


Not 'how could you', but 'I understand'.


Not 'I wish you were', but 'I'm thankful you are'.


To My Friends Who Are............ENGAGED
The true measure of compatibility is not the years spent together but how good you are for each other.


To My Friends Who Are............HEARTBROKEN
Heartbreaks last as long as you want and cut as deep as you allow them to go.


The challenge is not how to survive heartbreaks but to learn from them.


To My Friends Who Are............NAIVE

How to be in love: Fall but don't stumble, be consistent but not too persistent,


share and never be unfair, understand and try not to demand,


and get hurt but never keep the pain.

To My Friends Who Are............POSSESSIVE
It breaks your heart to see the one you love happy with someone else.


But it's more painful to know that the one you love is unhappy with you.


To My Friends Who Are............AFRAID TO CONFESS
Love hurts when you break up with someone.


It hurts even more when someone breaks up with you.


But love hurts the most when the person you love has no idea how you feel.


To My Friends Who Are............STILL HOLDING ON
A sad thing about life is when you meet someone and fall in love,

only to find out in the end that it was never meant to be and that you have wasted years on someone who wasn't worth it.


If he isn't worth it now he's not going to be worth it a year or 10 years from now. Let go.....



My wish for you is a man/women whose love is honest, strong, mature,

never-changing, uplifting, protective, encouraging, rewarding and unselfish.

Ladies!! Beware When Taking Taxi or hitching a ride from ANYONE!!!

The following story teaches us to be more careful when taking taxi, especially ladies. Pls take note and be safe than sorry.

========= An account with a ill-intentioned taxi driver ================
It is not a simply forwaded message. It happens for REAL!!!!
When I read this forwaded email, i thought it was just a made-up story or junk mail.

But I really thank God that I have read this email before.

Today is 30.12.2005, Friday in Singapore.
It happened to me just now when I was on my way back from work.
I will never forget this dangerous incident that I have experienced.
It is a valuable lesson.

Please bear in mind, DON' T GET INTO THE TAXI ALONE!!
If you were to sit in the taxi alone, please be 100% alert with the surrounding. No matter the taxi driver is chinese, malay or indian, PLEASE BE AWARE!

If you notice that there is a sound of spray of perfume or air purifier inside the taxi, PLEASE GET DOWN from the TAXI IMMEDIATELY!!

It just happened to me just now. It was about 12.45am. I got into a taxi driven by a malay man. I was in the taxi for a few minutes, I suddenly heard of a sound of spray and there was a smell like air purifier. I felt wierd as to why the driver put two types of air purifiers in his taxi. The smell
immediately reminded me about this forwarded email that I read.

I started to be aware of my surroundings. But the puff of the purifier kept appearing every few minutes. I was very worried and scared. Gradually, I sensed that my body started to feel weak and weaker. The purifier kept puffing from the back seat, just right behind me. As I really felt my whole body is weaken, I asked the driver to let me get down at the side road. But he kept trying to talk to me and ask me why not dropping me off at my destination. I think he was trying to drag the time. To my horror, I felt both of my hands and legs got numbed and no energy, almost could not move.
When I talked to the driver, I could not even speak properly, not to say to shout for help, 'cos I was really too weak.

Immediately, I opened the door and ran to a passer-by for help when the taxi was moving slowly or when it came for a short stop.

I really thank God for saving me. If not, I really can't imagine what would have happened to me. I am traumised by this incident.

This is TRUE case. Please do keep in mind! IT IS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY!

I feel the need to share with you guys, no matter you are men or women 'cos It is NOT a LIE , not a made-up story. It really happened.

Do let your friends, family members and relatives know about this case. I believe you are just like me, don't wish anybody to be the victim of this case.
"Pls be aware when aboard to a taxi, especially the ladies."
I received a email some months ago about a lady getting into a cab and felt uneasy and become
faint when she smelt something like incense being burnt.
She was smart enough to order the taxi to stop immediately and after throwing some money at the taxi man quickly get out of the taxi.

She later got to know that if she had not stopped the taxi and gotten out, she would have fainted and raped by the taxi ! man (or a gang of rapists)!

After reading this, I thought maybe this was one of those emails that you would read and just
forget about it, but I was wrong!

Few weeks ago, a visitor to our Chinese church who stayed in Puchong got into a taxi driven by an Indian man. When she sat into the taxi, there was a little burner and she could smell incense burning in the taxi.

After awhile, she felt weak and unable to speak or shout. The Indian taxi man drove to a
lonely road where there was hardly anyone and raped her.
Before she was completely knocked out, she was told by the taxi guy that she was his number six victim. She was not only raped but also robbed!

When she was conscious again, she quickly went to see a doctor.
The sad thing is, the doctor knew she was raped but did not advise her what to do.

The doctor just let her make the decision to make or not to make a police report. Since she does
not know the rapist name and also the taxi number and in great fear after this trauma, she told the doctor that she would not dare to report to the polis. The doctor said since she dare not make the report, he would just have to destroy the medical report!

Because the rapist took her whole bag with her IC in it, he got her address and even has the guts
to come straight to her house and try to be funny with her.

Please remember not to get in to a taxi that smells funny and if possible don't get into a taxi
alone, and if you have to do so, give a call or sms to your friends or relatives and let them know the taxi registration number and if possible, the name of the taxi driver.


Ladies Period Caution

It has been a traditional theory that ladies are not suppose to wash their hair during their period.
But there are no solutions to the question why?

The victim will only realise at their later stage of their life, facing the symptoms of breast and ovary cancer.
Today ladies still wash their hair during their period with the thinking that they will be safe if they blow dry their hair. But this will not prevent them from getting the cancer.

Please read the article below:

A well known Taiwanese medical professor specialise in cancer research based in a Japanese university did a survey on 30,000 pre cancer patients.
She found these patients are very choosy in their food, wash their hair during their period and carry heavy object and drink cold drinks. This will course the incomplete of ovulation and the remaining menses will turn into toxic and the imbalance of hormone will lead to ovary and breast cancer.

During the research she found the method of prevention to these cancer.
The secrets are;
One must change their lifestyle and eating habits.
Do not wash our hair while having period, do not wash your hair just for the cooling effect and contraction of ovary.

Excessive bleeding must be investigated by a gynae.

No cold drinks .

If you feel drowsy, breast expansion and constipation, these are the early symptom of ovary or breast cancer.

To prevent use:
Black sugar
Chinese lotus (leng ngau)
Carrot and Barley
Boil to soup and drink.

This is the best prevention.

How smart is your right foot?

Just try this. It is from an orthopaedic surgeon............ This will boggle your mind and you will keep trying over and over again to see if you can outsmart your foot, but, you can't. It's pre-programmed in your brain!

make clockwise circles.

2. Now, while doing this, draw the number '6' in the air with your right Hand. Your foot will change

It is involuntary and there's nothing you can do about it! You and I both know how stupid it is, but before the day is done you are going to try it again, if you've not already done so. Send it to your buddies to frustrate them too.

Now add up the total number of points..

OVER 60 POINT:& amp; nbsp; Others see you as someone they should 'handle with care'. You're seen as vain, self-centered, and who is extremely dominant.. Others may admire you, wishing they could be more like you, but don't always trust you, hesitating to become too deeply involved with you..

51 TO 60 POINTS: Others see you as an exciting, highly volatile, rather impulsive personality, a natural leader, who's quick to make decisions, though not always the right ones. They see you as bold and adventuresome, someone who will try anything once, someone who takes chances and enjoys an adventure. They enjoy being in your company because of the excitement you radiate.

41 TO 50 POINTS: Others see you as fresh, lively, charming, amusing, practical, and always interesting, someone who's constantly in the center of attention, but sufficiently well balanced not to let it go to their head. They also see you as kind, considerate, and understanding, someone who'll always cheer them up and help them out.

31 TO 40 POINTS: Others see you as sensible, cautious, careful & practical. They see you as clever, gifted, or talented, but modest. Not a person who makes friends too quickly or easily, but someone who's extremely loyal to friends you do make and who expects the same loyalty in return. Those who really get to know you, realize it takes a lot to shake your trust in your friends, but equally that it takes you a long time to get over if that trust is ever broken.

2 1 TO 30 POINTS: Your friends see you as painstaking and fussy. They see you as very cautious, extremely careful, a slow and steady plodder. It would really surprise them if you ever did something impulsively
or on the spur of the moment, expecting you to examine everything carefully from every angle and then, usually decide against it. They think this reaction is caused partly by your careful nature.

UNDER 21 POINTS: People think you are shy, nervous, and indecisive, someone who needs looking after, who always wants someone else to make the decisions and who doesn't want to get involved with anyone or anything! They see you as a worrier who always sees problems that don't exist. Some people think you're boring. Only those who know you well, know that you aren't.

Now forward this to others, and put your score in the subject box of your e-mail, like this: Dr. Phil's Test/ My score is

永远吃不肥 Buffet Buffet
The first episode aired last night, introducing lunch buffets in 3 establishments.

For lunch buffet below $20, Geek Terminal at Market Street ( @ $13.90 per pax - think it's best for those working in Raffles Place & who want a light lunch.

For lunch buffet between $20 to $30, Carnivore at Vivocity ( @ $28++ per pax - good for meat-eaters & those working in Vivocity vicinity.

For lunch buffet above $30, Carousel at Royal Plaza on Scotts ( @ $39++ per pax - for those who can afford a leisurely lunch with international spread on a weekday at Orchard Road .
2nd episode on dinner buffets ... here are the details:

Below $20, Bombay Cafe Express at Suntec City Mall ( @ $14.90++ per pax - not sure if the buffet's only available on Friday nights since that was what the programme showed. There's also another Bombay Cafe around Tanjong Katong area. I have not tried their food, so any feedback from those who had?

Between $20 to $30, Harbour City Restaurant at PSA Building ( @ $27.80++ per pax, only on weeknights - ala carte buffet menu of 48 dishes but subject to minimum of 4 pax to enjoy the buffet. This buffet does really look like a great-value for money, but provided you don't mind travelling to the rather remote location. I had only tried the dim sum lunch once & a long time ago, but it seemed very popular with working crowd around there

Above $30, MELT - The World Cafe at Mandarin Oriental ( @ $70++ per pax, only on weeknights - add $25++ to enjoy free flow of alcohol. As expected, the programme showed this famous buffet in Singapore .
3rd episode on tim sum buffets ... here are the details:

Below $20, Lao Beijing , at Plaza Singapura ( @ $10.20++ per pax – only for high tea on weekdays, 3 to 5pm. For weekends & PHs, the price increases to $15.80++, but the spread has slightly more choices as well.
Check out their website for the full high tea menus. It’s worth a try if you like lots of Chinese carbs.

Between $20 to $30, Peach Blossom at Marina Mandarin (
) @ $28.80++ per pax, served between 11.30am to 2.30pm, only on weekends & PHs - ala carte buffet menu of over 26 dishes. I haven’t tried it but am really tempted by the display of fried cornflake beancurds, deep fried enoki mushroom parcels and black glutinous rice with pumpkin paste dessert last night.

Above $30, Hai Tien Lo at Pan Pacific ( @ $58++ per pax, between 11.30am to 2.30pm, only on weekends & PHs – the spread looked good, but 4 out of 5 tasters on the programme commented that the price was a little too high for dim sum, which I tend to agree, what’s more with the recession looming over our heads now.
4th episode on breakfast buffets ... here are the details:

Below $20, Bistro Delifrance at various locations ( @ $9.90++ per pax – only on Fridays to Sundays & PHs, 8 to 10.30am. Check their website for the various bistro locations & under ‘Promotions & Hot Deals’ for the breakfast buffet details. Not sure why the flyer on the website indicated that we can have the bakery buffet breakfast at $7.95 and will need to add $3 for an additional hot meal, which was different from what was telecasted last evening, showing unlimited helpings to both their hot & bakery items.
Perhaps different bistro have different menus or the flyer is outdated? Did anybody know which outlet they showcased last night?

Between $20 to $30, Cafe Brio’s at Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel ( @ $29.00++ per pax, served between 6.30 to 10.30am, on all days – the spread seemed very international, probably good for those staying nearby. I found the mention of dining al fresco alongside the Singapore River rather funny since the view is more like of a big canal, nothing spectacular.

Above $30, Olive Tree Restaurant at Intercontinental Singapore ( @ $36.00++ per pax, between 6 to 10.30am, on weekends & PHs – the spread actually didn’t seem as international as Café Brio’s, but is definitely more high end. They have an egg station that will freshly cook your eggs in whatever style you want, which is the norm for 4 stars hotel establishments and above. And boy, am I impressed with their selection of fresh tea leaves that are served in actual tea pots rather than cups to individual customers. The pan fried beef and cheese selection looks really yummy too.
So if I’m to choose between Café Brio’s & Olive Tree, I’ll rather pay a bit more & go for the latter. After a most satisfying breakfast, we can then walk off our food by shopping to our fill at Bugis Junction.
5th episode on high tea buffets ... here are the details:

Below $20, Chilli Padi Nonya Café at North Bridge Commercial Complex ( @ $8.80+ per pax – there’s this other website -, but I’m not sure if this is the main restaurant’s website or even related to Chilli Padi Nonya café, thus I link up the hungry-go-where website which I feel has the best details & reviews. The high tea buffet is served on all days of the weeks, 2.30pm to 5.30pm, and I think it’s $7.80+ on weekdays, add a dollar for weekends. I was salivating over the spread on tv last night, especially the nonya kuehs, kueh pie ti, chwee kueh & chilled sago with gula melaka. Seems like they rotate their daily menus, thus you may get your favorites on certain days. The spread may not be huge but it’s definitely worth a try for that price. For your information, North Bridge Commercial Complex is just opposite Bugis Junction.

Between $20 to $30, Ellenborough Market Café at Swissotel Merchant Court ( @
per pax, served between 3.30pm to 5.30pm, only on weekends and PHs – needless be much said about this popular buffet with Singaporeans. It’s got a reasonably good spread, just don’t expect very nice ambience as I tend to think the café is always overcrowded. The cold chempedak dessert did look very tempting though.

Above $30, Tea Lounge at The Regent Singapore ( @ $36.00++ per pax, served between 1.30pm to 5.30pm on weekends – this is a classic English tea buffet, probably more suitable for ladies of leisure or bunch of girls meeting up for a get-together or couples wanting a quiet afternoon to cosy up to each other. Can you imagine a bunch of guys or big families gathering at this place? I think that explained why Terence Cao kept going over to join the other 2 female tasters last night since it would be a bit awkward for him to sit alone and sample English tea. Anyway, interesting items to try include the Yuzu tarlet, cherry trifle and macarons.
6th episode on dessert buffets ...

Steamboat Buffet

Zheng Fa Steamboat - Less Than 20 @ $18.90++, on weekdays. Website:
(Chin Huat don't have their own website, so this is the best). I was surprised by the indoor decor as it really didn't look very nice outside. I found the uniforms of the staff rather corny, but overall, I wouldn't mind patronising this place with my family or a big bunch of friends so that we can share food & try everything. The desserts really looked interesting, and I am impressed by the fact that they don't only offer steamboat, but also grill/bbq & teppanyaki, & at such low price. I bet this place is going to get swamped from now onwards, & I regret not trying it before the telecast.

Chongqing Steamboat @ Tanglin Mall - Less than 30 @ $29.90++ on weekdays & $30.90++ on weekends. Website: The restaurant is more correctly known as The Magic of Chongqing Hot Pot, & you can find the extensive menu on the website above. I like their sauces a lot, and all the 1-serving Jing Chuan Dian Xin items are worth a try. The 8-treasure tea served is a bonus as it really aided digestion of food.

The Buffet @ M Hotel - Above 30 @ $38++ on weekdays. Website:
. The hotpot buffet showcased last night is really impressive, but I think more suited for seafood lovers since they focus their themes around seafood. I salivated over the drunken prawns cooked on the spot & mushroom varieties & chinese herbs that you can add all you want to your soup, and of course, the durian pengat.
7th episode on dessert buffets ...

Below $20, Mingles at Velocity ( Novena Square ) – ice cream buffet @ $14.90+
+ per pax, available for high tea everyday – no official website so
+ please
refer to this: The buffet offers
24 flavours of New Zealand Natural ice cream, with unlimited waffles (not served whole but in small slices) & 1 drink per customer. It may be too much to eat just ice cream unless you are a true-blue ice cream fan, so a suggestion is to go for their set lunches or dinners, which will give you main course, drink & dessert/soup. I tried this place a couple of times, & rather enjoyed their sausages & rosti. However, this place is definitely not meant for hanging out or big crowds.

Between $20 to $30, The Rose Veranda at Shangri-La Hotel - dessert buffet @ $28++ per pax, available between 3 to 6pm on weekdays.
. I actually think this is the most worthy of the lot showcased last night, & would love to give it a try when I can find time to take the afternoon off from work & have a leisurely high tea with my friends or other half.
Being a female & tea drinker, I love the rose patterned crockery & am amazed by the 102 varieties of tea available. Apparently, they also serve tea cocktails, which are chargeable. Temptations include the crème brulee, mango & mint minestrone, lemongrass & chocolate mousse topped with crunchy chocolate balls, durian cake & chocolate fondue. They also have a selection of hot items for this buffet, which is great for those who are not die hard dessert fans.

Above $30, The Courtyard at Fullerton Hotel – chocolate buffet @ $38++ per pax, available Thur through Sat nights. Well, another well known buffet, so I’m not going to say too much. I have never tried it since I don’t fancy gorging myself on chocolate, not that I don’t love chocolate, but I just don’t wish to run at the sight of chocolate for a long time after that. The only items that caught my attention last night are the lychee tiramisu and white chocolate soup.
8th episode on brunch buffets ...

Below $20,
Penang Place Restaurant at International Business Park – not exactly brunch buffet but more like lunch buffet @ $19.80++ per pax, available daily from 11.30am to 2pm except on Sundays when they close – I tried this before, & have to say that I really enjoyed the spread. It is always very crowded though, so you definitely need to make reservations, even on weekdays. You can refer to the website for the buffet items.

Between $20 to $30, The Pearl River Palace Restaurant at Suntec City Convention Centre Level 3 – ala carte Cantonese lunch buffet @ $28++ per pax, available between 11.30am to 2.30pm on weekends. Being such a traditional Chinese establishment, they do not have their own website, but you can get good reviews at It seems like a good central venue for family get-together makan sessions on weekends with the usual Chinese restaurant fare, tim sum selection & desserts, & as usual, being able to shop after a heavy makan session is a plus point.

Above $30, Checkers Brasserie at Hilton Singapore – Sunday champagne buffet @ $160++ per pax, available from 12pm to 3pm. Without free flow champagne, it’s $70++ per adult & $25++ per child.;jsessionid=17BE3DCE5A2E6071BC2B21DAF1E7FCAB.etc73#2
. It sounds crazy to pay that kind of $$ for champagne plus lunch, especially when the atmosphere isn’t exactly leisurely or relaxed with a kids’ corner on the same premises. It also seemed so crowded and noisy in the show but if you have the cash to spare, can try for the seafood, western hot entrees like roast beef, foie gras (WOW!) & Yorkshire pudding, Indian cuisine like lamb kebabs & naans, Chinese selection like crepes with Peking duck and of course desserts.

Male or Female?

Male or Female? You might not have known this, but a lot of non-living objects are actually either male or female. Here are some examples:

FREEZER BAGS: They are male, because they hold everything in, but you can see right through them.

PHOTOCOPIERS: These are female, because once turned off; it takes a while to warm them up again.

They are an effective reproductive device if the right buttons are pushed, but can also wreak havoc if you push the wrong Buttons.

TIRES: Tires are male, because they go bald easily and are often over inflated

HOT AIR BALLOONS: Also a male object, because to get them to go anywhere, you have to light a fire under their butt.

SPONGES: These are female, because they are soft, squeezable and retain water.

Female, because they're constantly being looked at and frequently getting hit on.

TRAINS: Definitely male, because they always use the same old lines for picking up people.

EGG TIMERS: Egg timers are female because, over time, all the weight shifts to the bottom.

HAMMERS: Male, because in the last 5000 years, they've hardly changed at all, and are occasionally handy to have around.

THE REMOTE CONTROL: Female. Ha! You probably thought it would be male, but consider this: It easily gives a man pleasure, he'd be lost without it, and while he doesn't always know which buttons to push, he just keeps trying

New Law:
With the high rate of attacks on women in secluded parking lots, especially during evening hours, the Minneapolis City Council has established a 'Women Only' parking lot at the Mall of America. Even the parking lot attendants are exclusively female so that a comfortable and safe environment is created for patrons.

Below is the first picture available of this world-first women-only parking lot in Minnesota .

Ajinomoto - used in rape cases

received this from email...

DO YOU KNOW ? Coke+Ajinomoto Can be Used To Rape Ladies

Dear friends,

I received a news about the recent tactic used to spike girls' drink.
It is a cheap and widely used method.
This method was used in Canny Ong murder.
Rapist uses this method.

Coca-cola+ajinomoto/mono sodium glutamate = a medicine which will cause drowsiness and excitement in the victim.

This mixture is poisonous if used too often on the victim.

Please send this to all your female friends, sisters, & your loved ones and ask them to beware.

DO NOT accept coca-cola or any other drinks from stranger / even if it is your friend that you are not very close with.

Invest fund & transfer deposit

Not sure if it is a spam?

From Ms Sahra Savimbi,
Ouagadougou,Burkina Faso.

Dearest one,

Good day, I am Miss Sahra K. Savimbi the only daughter of the late Mr.and Mrs K. Savimbi. My father was a highly reputable cocoa and gold machant business magnet who operated in the capital cities of Burkina Faso ,Cote D'voire and the republic of Liberia during his days.

It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in Liberia civil war during one of his business trips abroad on the 12th September 2004. Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle of his who travelled with him at that time. But God knows the truth..

After his death, his lawyer who happens to be our family lawyer called me to inform me that my father has the sum of Seven Million Three Hundred thousand United State Dollars.(USD$7,300,000.00) and 350 kilo of Gold dust in a finance & security company here in Burkina Faso. He further told me that he deposited the money with my name as the next of kin since i am his only child and also gave me all the necessary legal documents that back up the fund with the Company.

I am just 23 years old and a university undergraduate and really don't know what to do, with due respect ,i am contacting you to present an account overseas in any part of the word where this funds can be transfered and after the transfer, I will also want you To make arrangement for me to come over to your country in order to further my university education and to secure a residential permit for me in your country.

The death of my father actually brought sorrow to my life. Moreover,I will also like to invest the fund under your care because I am ignorant of businessworld. Meanwhile, I am willing to offer you 25% of the total sum as compensation for your assistance in the transfer of this deposit to your country.

Immedaitely I confirm your willingness, I will inform you more details involved in this matter. please mail me on my private email ID

Thanks and hoping to hear from you soonest.

Sahra Savimbi.

Credit Card Scam says this is true.
To verify see this site:

This one is pretty slick since they provide YOU with all the information, except the one piece they want...

Note: the callers do not ask for your card number; they already have it.. This information is worth reading. By understanding how the VISA & Master Card Telephone Credit Card Scam works, you'll be better prepared to protect yourself.
One of our employees was called on Wednesday from 'VISA', and I was called on Thursday from 'Master Card'. The scam works like this: Caller: 'This is (name), and I'm calling from the Security and Fraud Department at VISA. My Badge number is 12460. Your card has been flagged for an unusual purchase pattern, and I'm calling to verify. This would be on your VISA card which was issued by (name of bank). Did you purchase an Anti-Telemarketing Device for $497.99 from a Marketing company based in Arizona ?'

When you say 'No', the caller continues with, 'Then we will be issuing a credit to your account. This is a company we have been watching and the charges range from $297 to $497, just under the $500 purchase pattern that flags most cards. Before your next statement, the credit will be sent to (gives you your address), is that correct?'

You say 'yes'. The caller continues - 'I will be starting a Fraud investigation.. If you have any questions, you should call the 1- 800 number listed on the back of your card (1-800 -VISA) and ask for Security.'

You will need to refer to this Control Number. The caller then gives you a 6 digit number. 'Do you need me to read it again?'

Here's the IMPORTANT part on how the scam works:- The caller then says, 'I need to verify you are in possession of your card'. He'll ask you to 'turn your card over and look for some numbers'. There are 7 numbers; the first 4 are part of your card number, the next 3 are the security numbers that verify you are the possessor of the card. These are the numbers you sometimes use to make Internet purchases to prove you have the card. The caller will ask you to read the 3 numbers to him. After you tell the caller the 3 numbers, he'll say, 'That is correct, I just needed to verify that the card has not been lost or stolen, and that you still have your card. Do you have any other questions?' After you say no, the caller then thank you and states, 'Don't hesitate to call back if you do, and hangs up'.

You actually say very little, and they never ask for or tell you the Card number. But after we were called on Wednesday, we called back within 20 minutes to ask a question. Are we glad we did! The REAL VISA Security Department told us it was a scam and in the last 15 minutes a new purchase of $497.99 was charged to our card.

Long story - short - we made a real fraud report and closed the VISA account. VISA is reissuing us a new number. What the scammers want is the 3-digit PIN number on the back of the card Don't give it to them. Instead, tell them you'll call VISA or Master card directly for verification of their conversation. The real VISA told us that they will never ask for anything on the card as they already know the information since they issued the card! If you give the scammers your 3 Digit PIN Number, you think you're receiving a credit. However, by the time you get your statement you'll see charges for purchases you didn't make, and by then it's almost too late and/or more difficult to actually file a fraud report.

What makes this more remarkable is that on Thursday, I got a call from a 'Jason Richardson of Master Card' with a word-for-word repeat of the VISA scam. This time I didn't let him finish. I hung up! We filed a police report, as instructed by VISA The police said they are taking several of these reports daily! They also urged us to tell everybody we know that this scam is happening.

Please pass this on to all your family, friends and neighbors. By informing each other, we protect each other.

Credit/Debit Card at Petrol Pump

Just a button away … just in case this is true …

Credit/Debit Card at Petrol Pump...........please read...

Beware of using credit card to refill the petrol. Just got to know about this case through a friend that this thing Actually happened to one of his co-workers. She used her credit/debit card to purchase gas at the pump (like most of us do).

She received her receipt like normal. However, when she checked her statement, there were 2 $50 charges added in addition to her purchase. Upon investigation, she found out that because she did not press the 'CLEAR' Button on the pump, the employee inside the store was able to use her card To purchase his/her own gas! To keep this from happening, after you get your receipt, you must press the 'CLEAR' button or your information will be stored until the next customer inserts their card.

Be sure to tell all your friends/family so that this doesn't happen to them!
