"In life you will meet many people. All are significant. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say hello!" ... Unknown

Please take note......

Prevention is better than to get into any unnecessary mess!

CHECK YOUR PASSPORT especially in Kuala L_mp_r Int. Airport.

You have no chance. These groups of M_l_y Civil Servants can do
anything to you however vigilant you choose to be. This is the time of

Please be Careful at the Airports. This is a well organized conspiracy
by Immigration, Police, Customs and Airline staff with networking at
all International Airports. Be careful when ever you hand over your
passport to the Immigration/Customs/Airline staff. The passport can be
easily tampered with and that can create trouble to you. They have
found an easy way of making easy money. This is the way it works:

At the time of the passenger's departure, if the passenger is not
looking at the officer while he is stamping the exit chop on the
passport, the officer very cleverly tears off one of the page from the
passport. The bastard usually tears off the page with the visa stamped
on it from your passport. When the passenger leaves the immigration
counter, the case is reported on his computer terminal with full
details. Now all over the country they have got full details of the
passenger with Red Flag flashing on the Passport number entered by the
departure immigration officer. YOU ARE NOW A MARKED MAN!!! They have
made their money by doing above.

On arrival next time, he is detained and interrogated. They will then
accused him of tampering with the passport. Subject to the passenger's
period of stay abroad, his income and standing etc., the price to get
rid of (settle) the problem is “fixed” by the Police and Immigration
people. If someone argues, they will give you hell and bring MORE
charges against you. You will NEVER get any justice, especially in
Malaysia where the civil servants who are mainly Malays. They have a
sick reputation of such unethical corrupt practices.

Please advise every passenger to be careful at the airports. Whenever
they hand over the passport to the counters of Airlines or immigration
or the customs, they must be vigilant, always keep their eyes on their
passports even if the officer in front of them tries to divert their

Also, please pass this information to all friends, media men and
important politicians. Every month dozens of cases are happening in
KLIA and all over the world to rob the unsuspecting passenger the
minute he lands.

A similar case happened with Aramco's Arifuddin in Pakistan . He was
travelling with his family. They had six passports. They got the visa
of America and decided to go via Jeddah. When they reached the States,
the page of the American visa on his wife's passport was missing. At
the time of departure from Pakistan it was there, the whole family had
to return helplessly. On arrival at Pakistan , they were arrested by
the police at the airport. It is over 2 months now and they are
running after the Police, Immigration officers and the Courts. One
simply cannot imagine neither believe, that the Immigration dept can
play such a nasty game to harass the innocent passengers.

All the airlines passengers must be aware of this conspiracy. Every
month dozens of cases are taking place, at each mentioned airport, of
detaining the passengers for the crime of tearing away the passport
pages and tampering with an official travel document. On interviewing
some of them, none of them was aware of what had happened. They don't
know why, when and who tore away the page from the middle of the
passport. One can imagine the sufferings of such people at the hands
of the immigration, police and the court procedures after that. The
number of cases has increased in the last 2-3 years. People who are
arriving at the immigration, are detained and questioned. Their
passports are being held and they have to go in for detailed
interrogation. Obviously, the conspiracy started about 2 to 3 years
ago, now the consequences are coming. Some of the Airline counter
staff too are also involved in this conspiracy.




I think at least have a full photo copy of Passport and keep scan of
your passport in your hard drive or flash memory and I will advise
same for ticket also.

How to kill mosquitoes with Listerine - NO JOKE

My friend's evidence: Listerine is effective in driving away mosquitoes.
  How to kill mosquitoes with Listerine - NO JOKE

I have a mozzie problem at home.  They come out at dusk to feed and also in the night when I'm asleep.  This  method works.  I spray on cotton pads and put them around my sofa in the evening and the mozzies don't come.  I also spray on towels and put them on my bed and the mozzies dont bite at night.

I was at a deck party awhile back, and the bugs were having a ball biting everyone. A man at the party sprayed the lawn and deck floor with Listerine, and the little demons disappeared. The next day  I filled a 4-ounce spray bottle and used it around my seat whenever I saw mosquitoes. And voila! That worked as well.. It worked at a picnic where we sprayed the area around the food table, the children's swing area, and the standing water nearby. During the summer, I don't leave home without it....Pass it on.
OUR FRIEND'S COMMENTS: I tried this on my deck and around all of my doors.
It works - in fact, it killed them instantly. I bought my bottle from Target and it
cost me $1.89. It really doesn't take much, and it is a big bottle, too; so it is not
as expensive to use as the can of Bug-spray you buy that doesn't last 30 minutes.
So, try this, please. It will last a couple of days. Don't spray directly on a wood
door (like your front door), but spray around the frame. Spray around the window
frames, and even inside the dog house.

Beware Employees Who Boast About Multitasking

Those who claim to be best at multitasking are actually the worst at it, a new study says.

If you've ever worked in a large organization, you're probably already familiar with the Dunning-Kruger effect even if you don't know the psychological term for the phenomenon. The immortal words of philosopher Bertrand Russell sum it up nicely: "the trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt."

Or, to put it in the modern parlance, idiots don't know they're idiots, and the most skilled are generally also the most self-critical. You've probably observed this effect in many domains (driving and management maybe), but science recently added another entry to the roster of areas where people are often dangerously deluded.

Know that guy who claims to be a multitasking ninja? Yeah, in reality he's probably abysmal at it.

explosion due to sprayed of insect killer

received this useful tip from a friend...

Let this not happen to Anyone

This could be a common mistake in any household. This shocking accident happened on 13th May 2012 in Pune , India .
A housewife died due to burns sustained in the kitchen. Her husband too was hospitalised for injuries due to burns while trying to rescue his wife. How it happened:

The gas stove was on and cooking in progress. The lady observed some cockroaches near the sink and grabbed a can of insect killer and sprayed it near the gas stove, which was on. There was an explosion and in no time the poor woman was covered in flames, sustaining 65% burns. Her husband rushed in, tried to put out the flames and his clothes too caught fire. The husband is still in hospital, in the burns ward, still unaware that his wife was declared dead on arrival.
Let us understand: - All insect killer sprays such as "Hit", "Mortein" etc. have highly volatile and inflammable solvents. The atomized nano spray particles spread very rapidly and one spark is enough to ignite this explosive mixture with oxygen present in air.

Please educate your family & Friends about this and spread the word around
Don’t Keep this mail in your inbox. Please share... who knows you may save more than a life... I just did my part.

Pineapple Facts

Quite a bit of “interesting news to me”—maybe to you also!

A Simple Pineapple - MUST Read

The pineapple is a member of the bromeliad family.
It is extremely rare that bromeliads produce edible fruit. The pineapple is
the only available edible bromeliad today.

It is a multiple fruit. One pineapple is actually made up of dozens of
individual floweret's that grow together to form the entire fruit. Each
scale on a pineapple is evidence of a separate flower.

Pineapples stop ripening the minute they are picked.
No special way of storing them will help ripen them further.
Colour is relatively unimportant in determining ripeness.
Choose your pineapple by smell.If it smells fresh, tropical and
sweet, it will be a good fruit.

The more scales on the pineapple, the sweeter and juicier the taste.

After you cut off the top, you can plant it.
It should grow much like a sweet potato will.

This delicious fruit is not only sweet and tropical; it also offers many
benefits to our health. Pineapple is a remarkable fruit.

We find it enjoyable because of its lush, sweet and exotic flavor, but it
may also be one of the most healthful foods available today.
If we take a more detailed look at it, we will find that pineapple is
valuable for easing indigestion, arthritis or sinusitis.

The juice has an anthelmintic effect; it helps get rid of intestinal worms.

Let's look at how pineapple affects other conditions.

Pineapple is high in manganese, a mineral that is critical to development of
strong bones and connective tissue. A cup of fresh pineapple will give you nearly 75% of the recommended daily amount.

It is particularly helpful to older adults, whose bones tend to become
brittle with age.

Bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme, is the key to pineapple's value.
Proteolytic means "breaks down protein", which is why pineapple is known to
be a digestive aid. It helps the body digest proteins more efficiently.
Bromelain is also considered an effective anti-inflammatory.

Regular ingestion of at least one half cup of fresh pineapple daily is
purported to relieve painful joints common to osteoarthritis. It also produces mild pain relief.

In Germany, bromelain is approved as a post-injury medication because it is
thought to reduce inflammation and swelling.

Orange juice is a popular liquid for those suffering from a cold because it
is high in Vitamin C. Fresh pineapple is not only high in this vitamin, but because of the Bromelain, it has the ability to reduce mucous in the throat.
If you have a cold with a productive cough, add pineapple to your diet.
It is commonly used in Europe as a post-operative measure to cut mucous
after certain sinus and throat operations.

Those individuals who eat fresh pineapple daily report fewer sinus problems
related to allergies. In and of itself, pineapple has a very low risk for allergies.

Pineapple is also known to discourage blood clot development. This makes
it a valuable dietary addition for frequent fliers and others who may be at risk for blood clots.

An old folk remedy for morning sickness is fresh pineapple juice.
it really works! Fresh juice and some nuts first thing in the morning often
make a difference.

It's also good for a healthier mouth. The fresh juice discourages plaque growth.

Cook porridge in 10 minutes

We usually have to cook porridge for at least 45 minutes before you can enjoy it. However, this method will get the job done in 10 minutes!

The secret is: First put a cup of rice, properly washed in the freezer and refrigerate them to rice icing in the freezer. To cook porridge, just put the frozen rice in boiling water and cook for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, you will have a pot of nicely cooked soft porridge.

Its principle is: After freezing, the structure of a grain of rice produces tiny spherical holes with enhanced water absorption. When put in hot water, the rice grains become loose, and the starch in the grain of rice begin to turn into a paste like which will turn into porridge in a very short time.

Try it yourself. Once you have done once, you will store a small box of frozen rice in the freezer to make quick porridge for breakfast, or for supper before going to sleep at night.

Very convenient indeed! - Sin Ming Roti Prata is least oily

received this from a friend...

Sin Ming Roti Prata is least oily
We don't add ghee or milk, owner says.
Tay Suan Chiangby Tay Suan Chiang

Singapore, February 27, 2013
Sin Ming Roti Prata
Blk 24 Sin Ming Road
#01-51 Jin Fa Kopitiam
Hours: 6.30am to 6.30pm daily
There are several prata joints in the Upper Thomson area, each with its own following.
Sin Ming Roti prata is no exception.

Tucked away in a coffee shop, the stall is run by the father-and-son duo of Haji Mohammed and Al Malik Faisal, better known as Aziz and Faisal. They have had the business for more than 15 years.
Mr Faisal says: "Some of my customers go to other prata places, but in the end, they still return here."
The prata (90 cents for the plain version) is crispy on the outside and slightly chewy on the inside. Mr Faisal says they use the traditional method of making the prata dough.
This means just involving the basics - sugar, eggs, salt and the flour.
"We don't add ghee or milk," he says.
The dough is mixed and kneaded by hand, and let to rest for an hour. It is next moulded into dough balls. Flipping the prata takes skill, which comes from years of practise.
The prata is fluffy and not oily; there is barely a glisten of grease on the plate when we were done. If there is a healthy version of prata , this could be it.
Those who like their prata more crispy should go for the coin prata ($3.50 for six), which are shaped like small, thick pancakes. The dough used is the same, but it is made differently from regular prata , says Mr Faisal.
The prata goes well with the curry gravy, that is not too watery and is slightly sweet; its spiciness really packs a punch.
Mr Faisal says most people order two prata s, but one customer had 10 in one sitting some years ago.
"I still get regulars who order three to four egg prata s."
For those with more room in their tummies, the stall also offers other foods, such as nasi briyani and mee goreng.

10 Health Benefits Of Breakfast

1. Breakfast keeps you lean

A study from the American Journal of Epidemiology found that people who skipped breakfast were 4.5 times more likely to be obese. Those who miss their morning meal are more likely to overeat later in the day and more likely to reach for high-calorie, low-nutrient snacks, say experts.

2. Breakfast revs your metabolism

Your metabolism slows down as you sleep, so there's nothing like a healthy breakfast to jump-start it for the day. Regular breakfast eaters burn an average of 150 more calories than breakfast skippers, according to a Mayo Clinic research.

3. Breakfast lowers your cholesterol levels

Eating the morning meal may help promote cardiovascular health. Studies have shown that breakfast-skipping adults and children had higher blood cholesterol levels than breakfast eaters.

4. Breakfast enhances immune system

Researchers at Cardiff University showed that people who regularly ate breakfast were less likely to suffer colds, flu and other respiratory tract illnesses than breakfast-skippers.

5. Breakfast reduces risk of diabetes

Breakfast eaters are half as likely to have a blood-sugar problem, which increases your risk of suffering from diabetes, according to a study by the Harvard Medical School.

6. Breakfast boosts brain power

A study in the Journal of Adolescent Health found that eating high-energy foods for breakfast could help boost short-term memory. After a night of fasting, eating first thing in the morning provides a fresh supply of glucose to fuel the brain.

7. Breakfast helps you meet your nutritional needs

Many breakfast foods (such as eggs, dairy, fortified cereals and whole grains) are very good sources of essential nutrients like folate, calcium, iron, B vitamins and fiber. Eating these helps you meet nutritional recommendations, which many people can find difficult to get elsewhere if they are just having two meals a day.

8. Breakfast energizes

Eating a breakfast that's high in fiber and carbohydrates could help you feel less tired throughout the day, according to a 1999 study in the International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition.

9. Breakfast improves your mood

Regular breakfast eaters are less likely to be emotionally distressed or depressed, according to a study by the University of Bristol. You're also less likely to be grouchy when you aren't distracted by hunger pangs.

10. Breakfast may increase your lifespan

Studies showed that people who lived to be 100 years old consume breakfast more regularly than those who don't. Since we know that breakfast is associated with a whole host of health benefits, this shouldn't come as a surprise.


The Truth About White Bread!

We know that there are many people round the world who enjoy eating white bread. But today, we'd like to give you some facts that may shock and surprise you. It's not only that white bread isn't good for your health, it can actually be a real danger to your health!
The Swiss government has been aware of the dangers of eating white bread for decades and in order to get its populace to stop eating it, Switzerland has placed a tax on the purchase of white bread. The tax money is given to bakers to reduce the price of whole wheat bread to encourage people to switch.  The Canadian government passed a law prohibiting the “enrichment” of white bread with synthetic vitamins. Bread must contain the original vitamins found in the grain, not imitations .  Essentially, white bread is dead bread. Frequently, consumers are not told the truth about this and so called “enriched” flour. Why is the color of white bread so white when the flour taken from wheat is not?  It’s because the flour used to make white bread is chemically bleached, just like you bleach your clothes. When you are eating white bread, you are also eating residual chemical bleach . Flour mills use different chemical bleaches, all of which are pretty bad.  Here are a few of them: Oxide of nitrogen, chlorine, chloride, nitrosyl and benzoyl peroxide mixed with various chemical salts.  One bleaching agent, chloride oxide, combined with whatever proteins are still 
left in the flour, produces alloxan. Alloxon is a poison and has been used to produce diabetes in laboratory animals.  Chlorine oxide destroys the vital wheat germ oil. It will also shorten the flour’s shelf life. Good Nutrition: You won’t find it In white bread In the process of making flour white, half of the good unsaturated fatty acids, that are high in food value, are lost in the milling process alone, and virtually all the vitamin E is lost with the removal of wheat germ and bran.   As a result, the remaining flour in the white bread you buy, contains only poor quality proteins and fattening starch. But that is not the whole story as to the loss of nutrients.  Here are some other statistics about the huge loss of nutrients when white bread is made: · About 50% of all calcium is lost  · 70% of phosphorus · 80% of iron · 98% of  magnesium · 75% of manganese  · 50% of potassium and · 65% of of copper is destroyed when white bread is made. · 80% of thiamin, 60% of riboflavin, 75% of niacin, 50% of pantothenic acid.  · About 50% of Pyridoxine is also lost. Scientific study has confirmed what the swiss have known for years these horrific numbers are the results of a study run by the university of california, college of agriculture. It is obvious, from what we have learned, that white bread should be avoided.    Whole wheat, rye and grain breads made with whole wheat flour are a 
better way.  
It is a good idea to always read the labels and never buy foods that contain 
artificial flavors, colors, bleached flour, preservatives, hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils.

Self Appraisal

A Little boy went to a telephone booth which was at the cash counter of a store and dialed a number.
The store-owner observed and listened to the conversation:

Boy: “Lady, can you give me the job of cutting your lawn?”

Woman: (at the other end of the phone line) “I already have someone to cut my lawn.”

Boy: “Lady, I will cut your lawn for half the price than the person who cuts your lawn now.”

Woman: “I’m very satisfied with the person who is presently cutting the lawn.”

Boy: (with more perseverance) “Lady, I’ll even sweep the floor and the stairs of your house for free.”

Woman: “No, thank you.”

With a smile on his face, the little boy replaced the receiver.
The store-owner, who was listening to all this, walked over to the boy.

Store-owner: “Son….I like your attitude; I like that positive spirit and would like to offer you a job.”

Boy: “No thanks.”

Store-owner: “But you were really pleading for one.”

Boy: “No Sir, I was just checking my performance at the job I already have.
I am the one who is working for that lady I was talking to!”

Hi friends,

What you want to know about papaya.....
The gorgeous Fruit Papaya....
Papaya was the only studied food found to halt breast cancer.
Scientists studied 14 plant foods commonly consumed in Mexico to determine their ability to halt breast cancer cell growth. These included avocado, black sapodilla, guava, mango, prickly pear cactus (nopal), pineapple, grapes, tomato, and papaya.
They also evaluated beta-carotene, total plant phenolics, and gallic acid contents and antioxidant capacity. They found that only papaya had a significant effect on stopping breast cancer cell growth.
 Papaya is a store-house of cancer-fighting lycopene.
The intense orangey-pink colour of papaya means it is chock full of cancer fighting carotenoids. Not only beta carotene, but lycopene is found in abundance. The construction of lycopene makes it highly reactive towards oxygen and free radicals.
Scientists at the University of Illinois think this anti-oxidant activity contributes to its effectiveness as a cancer fighting agent. Epidemiological studies have indicated an inverse relationship between lycopene intake and prostate cancer risk. They showed that oral lycopene is highly bio available, accumulates in prostate tissue, and is localised in the nucleus of prostate epithelial cells.
In addition to antioxidant activity, other experiments have indicated that lycopene induces cancer cell death, anti-metastatic activity, and the up-regulation of protective enzymes. (The experiment report on cancer cells, Phase I and II studies have established the safety of lycopene supplementation in done on October 8, 2008).
Prostate cancer was the subject of a study in Australia that looked at 130 prostate cancer patients and 274 hospitalized controls. The scientists found that men who consumed the most lycopene-rich fruits and vegetables such as papaya were 82% less likely to have prostate cancer. In this study, green tea also exerted a powerful anti-cancer effect. When lycopene-rich foods were consumed with green tea, the combination was even more effective, an outcome the researchers credited to their synergy. ( Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 2007).
Isothiocyanates found in papaya restore the cell cycle to eliminate cancer.
Organo-sulphur compounds called isothiocyanates are found in papaya. In animal experiments, isothiocyanates protected against cancers of the breast, lung, colon, pancreas, prostate, as well as leukaemia, and they have the potential to prevent cancer in humans. Isothiocyanates have shown themselves capable of inhibiting both the formation and development of cancer cells through multiple pathways and mechanisms. (International Journal of Oncology, October, 2008).
Types of isothiocyate fruit and vegetable.

Researchers in Japan - clarified the mechanisms of action in a type of isothiocyanate found in papaya known as BITC, which underlies the relationship between cell cycle regulation and appropriate cell death. When cancerous cells die on schedule, they are no longer a problem.
The researchers established that BITC exerted cancer cell killing effects that were greater in the proliferating cells than in the quiescent cells. Cancer cells that are proliferating are much more dangerous than cancer cells that are in a state of dormancy. (Forum of Nutrition, 2009).

Enzymes (Vinegar) from papaya digest proteins including those that protect tumours.
The fruit and other parts of the papaya tree, also known as the paw paw tree, contain papain and chymopapain, powerful proteolytic enzymes that facilitate chemical reactions in the body.
They promote digestion by helping to break down proteins from food into amino acids that can be recombined to produce protein useable by humans.
Proteolytic enzymes protect the body from inflammation and help heal burns. They do a good job of digesting unwanted scar tissue both on the skin and under its surface.
Being a proteolytic enzyme, papain is able to destroy intestinal parasites, which are composed mostly of protein. To rid the body of intestinal parasites, half a cup of papaya juice can be alternated each hour for twelve consecutive hours with the same amount of cucumber or green bean juice.
Research has shown that the physical and mental health of people is highly dependent on their ability to produce proteins they can use effectively.
However, as people age, they produce less of the enzymes needed to effectively digest proteins from food and free needed amino acids. They are left with excessive amounts of undigested protein which can lead to overgrowth of unwanted bacteria in the intestinal tract, and a lack of available amino acids.

Eating papaya after a meal promotes digestion, and helps prevent bloating, gas production, and indigestion. It is quite helpful after antibiotic use to replenish friendly intestinal bacteria that were the casualties in the war against the unwanted bacteria. When the intestinal tract is well populated with friendly bacteria, the immune system is strengthened, and can protect better against flu and cancer.

Papaya contains fibrin, another useful compound not readily found in the plant kingdom.
Fibrin reduces the risk of blood clots and improves the quality of blood cells, optimising the ability of blood to flow through the circulatory system. Fibrin is also important in prevention strokes.
Proteolytic enzymes containing fibrin are a good idea for long plane rides to minimize the potential of blood clots in the legs. People who sit at a desk all day might want to use proteolytic enzymes too. Proteolytic enzymes are able to digest and destroy the defence shields of viruses, tumours, allergens, yeasts, and various forms of fungus.

Once the shield is destroyed, tumours and invading organisms are extremely vulnerable and easily taken care of by the immune system. Undigested proteins can penetrate the gut and wind up in the bloodstream where they are treated by the immune system as invaders. If too many undigested proteins are floating around, the immune system becomes overburdened and unable to attend to the other tasks it was meant to do. 
Proteolytic enzymes can digest these rogue proteins, freeing up the immune system.

Let's ensure a slice of papaya every day in our diet. Papaya juice will be great.
Have a great day.....along with a slice of papaya.

avian flu in china

received this from a friend... not sure how true... in any case, just be careful...

Urgent notice: TV news just broadcasted. temporarily pls do not eat beef or beef products due to the transport to Suzhou of  570 head of cattle had infected with Bacillus anthracis. Suzhou just finished an emergency meeting. Pls notify as many friends and family members. a friend just called and shared that the avian flu is very serious! Beijing Union Medical College Hospital leadership dinner had announce that news and this news had blocked from the outside media! This was almost similar like a decade ago the spread of SARS. It is advisable to wash our hands frequently, avoid drinking tap water and dont eat unsolicited poultry pork and raw eggs.There is no available treatment yet.
