Boost Your Eyesight

Image
1. Eat for bright eyesight
Protect your peepers with a vision-ary diet! Our eyes require multiple nutrients to function optimally. 
Start with these:
• Vitamins A, C, E, and minerals like copper and zinc are essential to eyesight. 
Antioxidants, including beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin, protect the macula from sun damage. Get these antioxidants from dark leafy greens, egg yolks, yellow peppers, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, and carrots--notice any color pattern here? Current research shows that consuming yellow and green vegetables can help prevent age-related macular generation, a leading cause of blindness. Find out more about beta-carotene in the Natural Health Dictionary.
• Foods rich in sulfur, cysteine, and lecithin help protect the lens of your eye from cataract formation. Excellent choices include garlic, onions, shallots, and capers. 
• Anthocyanin-rich blueberries, grapes, and goji berries have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can help improve your vision. Fin…

You Don't Look Fat

Image
The following situation is familiar to most guys in relationships: You and your girlfriend (or wife) are preparing for a night out and, after she gets dressed, she asks, "Do I look fat in this?" The best answer? "No, of course you don't look fat." (That can be followed by "You're beautiful" or other flattering comments.) Other than ignoring her question entirely, this is the only way to come out of the situation unscathed; any other answers could be twisted into something they didn't mean and door slamming will likely ensue. The bottom line for guys is: She feels chunky and their mission is to put her fears to rest.

I wear whatever I like.  I don't ask for my partner's point of view.  What about you?

Be persistent

Image
Persistence does mean:
You must try something else until you do find a strategy that does work well and then you can keep on doing it because it is bringing you the results that you are looking for.
So how do you develop a persistent attitude? 
You must:
1. Have a burning desire to succeed. It is not a need. It is a MUST.
2. Picture yourself reaching your desired goals in your home business or online business.
3. Have faith that you will reach your goals.
4. Have something that can push you on a daily basis to do something. Maybe it is your job that you don’t like and this can be a great motivator to never give up. Maybe you want to improve your income, and knowing this will give you the ability to keep on going despite many failures along the way.
5. Tell yourself that you will succeed and you will do what ever it takes to make your business a success. You have to feed your subconscious mind with positive self talk.
6. Make your own decision that this will work and don’t listen to…

Powder vs Pill

Image
Although several vitamin and nutritional supplements are available in both pill and powder form, powder has several advantages over pill supplements.

Like liquid supplements, powder is more rapidly absorbed by the body than a supplement contained in pill form. This is one of the reasons that protein powders are superior to protein pills. Although the topic is hotly debated, many body building experts believe that the ideal time for protein absorption is immediately after exercise. If you take your protein in pill form, your body isn’t able to utilize the protein in the pill for hours.

In addition, many supplements that are available in powder form are soluble, or dissolvable, in water. This allows individuals to take their supplements in liquid form, which is bothpreferable and easier for many people.

Like pill supplements, the active ingredients and enzymes in powder supplements are stable and can last for a relatively long time. This contrasts with liquid supplements, …

What's Your Personality Type?

Try this quiz, What's Your Personality Type? It's fun and I found that it has some truth about me in it.

You have a strong need to belong, and you very loyal.
A good listener, you excel at helping others in practical ways.
In your spare time, you enjoy engaging your senses through art, cooking, and music.
You find it easy to be devoted to one person... a partner who you do special things for.

In love, you express your emotions through actions.
Taking care of someone is how you love them. And you do it well!

At work, you do well in a structured environment. You complete tasks well and on time.
You would make a good interior designer, chef, or child psychologist.

How you see yourself: Competent, dependable, and detail oriented

When other people don't get you, they see you as: Boring, dominant, and stuck in a rut.

When Your Spouse Is Also Your Boss!

If you don’t like your boss, or the way he or she is treating you, you can resign and find another job with a more reasonable supervisor. But what if you are also married to your boss? A woman Azriela Jaffe interviewed for Honey, I Want to Start my Own Business, A Planning Guide for Couples, told her that after months of verbal abuse by her husband and supervisor, she quit with no notice, and within a week she was working at a nice salary for someone else. Remarkably, their marriage survived that ordeal. Six months later, after intensive marriage counseling, her husband swallowed his pride and begged her to return, acknowledging her true worth to his business after all. She now keeps a typed letter of resignation by her computer, as a reminder to her husband not to take her value for granted.
Working for your spouse can be the best thing that ever happened to your business and your marriage, if five key ingredients are all, and consistently, present in the mix. 
First, the …

My Camry drive

Image
I had driven my Camry on Sundays 15 May and 22 May.  Thus, Sundays would be my Camry days. Other days, I would drive my Unser or Corolla to work.

Smooth drive and I love it.


Here's how I drive it..
First of all, I need to put this small control in my pocket.

Then, I simply hold the car handle.  Two beeps could be heard and the car could be opened.  No key needed.

 Press the brake hard so that the small light on the engine button turns green.  Press the engine button.  It starts automatically.


Press the buttons on the right to switch on the AC. Press the left buttons to choose the radio channel.

P, R, N and D. Even S if I wish to drive it manually. 
Very easy and simple!



Caring for the heart

Image
Just now we visited an uncle at Pantai Hospital Ipoh. I haven't been to this hospital for quite some time already. The last time I went with my sister as she had to meet a doctor to close a sale.
Pantai Hospital Ipoh

Motto: Caring from the heart

Slogan: We are family. Yes, I can!

Love your baby. Love your family.

Anmum. Materna.


This uncle is suffering from depression. He claims that his sons are not bothered about him. But now he is lying in the hospital. His five sons have to take turns to care for him.

Secret Garden

Image
Since I haven't been to the Secret Garden, I took my kids there after their dinner at home yesterday. I knew it's a very expensive place so I just wanted to have a look. We actually just ordered a dessert.











We just had this ..the Secret Angels

Travel or Stay Home

Image
If you were to get a large sum of money..of course legal ones, what would you do with the money?
Would you just keep it for rainy days or would you use it for traveling?
As for me, I prefer traveling. You can see me traveling here and there. Of course, I used my own money..not my husband's. 
I had acquired quite a sum of money in 2009. So that was the reason why I was able to travel to quite a number of places already..
1. In Nov 2009, I went to Hong Kong, Macau and Shenzhen with my girl.
2. In March 2010, I went to Taiwan with my two girls.
3. In June 2010, I went to Melbourne, Sydney and Gold Coast with my boy.
4. In March 2011, I went to Kota Kinabalu with my mum and my girl.
5. In June 2011, I will be going to Europe..  Can you guess this city?


I suppose, after this trip, I would have to be quiet for some time and start saving. Why? Because my windfall has almost finished!

Fast n Furious

Image
We hardly go for a movie as a whole family. My husband dislikes movies. Practically, he will sleep through the movie.
The last time we went together was a year ago. He slept soundly in the theatre.
This time, my staff persuaded him to watch as he promised that it would be a very exciting movie.
So two days ago when I asked my husband if he wanted to join us for "Fast n Furious". He said ok. I got my girl to get those tickets yesterday to ensure our seats.
Off we went for the movie this evening. He seemed to be enjoying the movie very much. For the first time ever, he didn't sleep through..

Real Translator Job

Image
Actually, I was looking for a writing job online so I visited a website. They kept on sending me emails about it but I didn't seem to be keen as I was needed to pay in order to get started.
Recently  I received an email, Real Translator Job. It caught my attention as I could be good in translating Bahasa Malaysia into English.




When I clicked the link, here's where I was..
50% off.. that would mean $34 instead of $68.

I was not really keen as I was still needed to pay so I closed the link but  I was STOPPED! Instead of $34, I was just needed to pay $24
I was still not into it so I closed the link.  Yet another STOP sign. This time, it's only $14
Guess it could be a hoax so I closed the link. This page came out instead.
I could pay by credit card or debit card..


Do you think I go for it??
