Life Is Beautiful

Don't compare yourself with anyone in this world.
If you compare, you are insulting yourself.

No one will manufacture a lock without a key.
Similarly God won't give problems without solutions.

Life laughs at you when you are unhappy...
Life smiles at you when you are happy...
Life salutes you when you makes other happy...

Every successful person has a painful story.
Every painful story has a successful ending.
Accept the pain and get ready for SUCCESS.

Easy is to judge the mistakes of others.
Difficult is to recognize our own mistakes.

No one can go back and change a bad beginning;
But anyone can start now and create a successful ending.

If a problem can be solved, no need to worry about it.
If a problem cannot be solved what is the use of worrying?

If you miss an opportunity, don't fill the eyes with tears.
It will hide another better opportunity in front of you.

"Changing the Face" can change nothing.
But, "Facing the Change" can change everything.
Don't complain about others; Change yourself if you want peace.

Mistakes are painful when they happen.
But years later collection of mistakes is called experience,
which leads to success.

Be bold when you loose and be calm when you win.
It is easier to protect your feet with slippers than to cover the
earth with carpet.

Multi-Purpose Basket

Why I call this "Multi-Purpose Basket" ???

This cute basket are imported from Vietnam at first, but I don't know if now they are made locally. I use this when I went to buy vegetables at market. I use it to bring my son and daughter lunch at school. This basket are made from plastic stripes and is very durable. When dirty we can just wash it with water and detergent.
I got myself few different design, size and colour. They of course have more design than what I showed here.

medium size - light blue and pink

Side view - i use this when going to market every morning ^.^

Smaller size - light blue and yellow

I use this to fill in the lunchbox, drinks, fruits and snacks for my children at school.

I simply like the design of this one...the size can fix in an A4 size file - sometime I use it as handbag because it doesn't really look like a basket ...

This basket is the first I owned of all the above. Its colour and design really catches my eyes..a great one for outing or picnic. Can use this fill in all baby's stuff when going out like pampers, milk bottles, milk powder, water.. etc. and some clothing as well. I found it really useful and cute !

What you all think??? ^.^

☆● Watermelon ●☆

Once a while I would love to have a glass of iced watermelon juice to ease my thirst and cool me down on this hot sunny day. How you all like watermelon?? or watermelon juice?? ..

Watermelon smoothies + yellow watermelon flesh in it . . .

I love watermelon, sweet and juicy !!

Fruit boost: The citrulline in watermelons reacts with the body's enzymes when consumed in large quantities and is changed in arginine. Arginine has the same basic effect like Viagra (as stated in The Star newspaper)

Guess what I've read in the STAR newspaper today (page - W54) ???


That is the big title stated there... Eat Watermelon For Better Sex???

Quote : The Star - Friday 4 July 2008
LUBBOCK (Texas): A slice of cool, fresh watermelon has effects similar to Viagra, researchers say.
Watermelons contain an ingredient called citrulline that can trigger production of a compound that helps relax the body's blood vessels, similar to what happens when a man takes Viagra, said scientists in Texas, one of the United States' top producers of the seedless variety.
Found in the flesh and rind of watermelons, citrulline reacts with the body's enzymes when consumed in large quantities and is changed into arginine, an amino acid that benefits the heart and the circulatory and immune systems.
"Arginine boosts nitric oxide, which relaxes blood vessels, the same basic effect that Viagra has, to treat erectile dysfunction and maybe even prevent it," said Bhimu Patil, a researcher and director of Texas A&M's Fruit and Vegetable Improvement Centre.
"Watermelon maybe not be as organ-specific as Viagra, but it's a great way to relax blood vessels without any drug side effects."
Todd Wehner, who studies watermelon breeding at North Carolina State University, said anyone taking Viagra should not expect the same result from watermelon.
"It sounds like it would be an effect that would be interesting but not a substitute for any medical treatment," Wehner said.
The nitric oxide can also help with angina, high blood pressure and other cardiovascular problems, according to the study, which was paid for by the US Department of Argiculture.
More citrulline - about 60% - is found in watermelon rind than in the flesh, Patil said, but that can vary.
Citrulline is found in all colours of watermelon and is highest in the yellow-fleshed types, said Penelope Perkins-Veazie, a USDA researcher in Lane, Okla.
She said Patil's research is valid, but with a caveat: One would need to eat about six cups of watermelon to get enough citrulline to boost the body's arginine level.
"The problem you have when you eat a lot of watermelon is you tend to run to the bathroom more," Perkins-Veazie said.
Watermelon is a diuretic and was a homeopathic treatment for kidney patients before dialysis become widespread.
Citrulline is present in other cucurbits, like cucumbers and cantaloupe, at very low level, and in the milk protein casein. The highest concentrations of citrulline were found in walnut seedings, Perkins-Veazie said.
"But they're bitter and most people don't want to eat them," she said. -AP

After reading this in the newspaper today only I realise that watermelon has so much good benefit to our body...(not just for the better sex, of course ...hahaha~) So take more watermelon ya !!

My Maid of 3 yrs & 8 mths - Baniyah . . .

A very big SORRY !!! for keep all of you waiting for my new updates . . .
Baniyah finally finished her 4th year contract with me and decided to went back to her hometown to get married. Her mom had find her a husband and I hope she will be happily married and start her own family soon.

The reason I didn't update my BLOG for so so long is, . . . I hv to do the housework by myself now . . . the first few days I handle the task is really terrible. Imagine that I've stopped doing all this for more than 7 yrs. I get a maid after I give birth to my 2nd daughter so, it really take sometime for me to get back to do all this, hehe !!
Baniyah started to work with us when my youngest daughter was just 3 yrs old. She is the one who took care of my youngest daughter Xin Nin the most. So, when my maid decided to go home . . . Xin Nin is the one who's feels so sad. Baniyah is like her mom other than me. They share secrets out of my knowledge and always argue to each other. I can see Xin Nin really sad when I sent my maid to the agent.
Baniyah left on 25th June 08. And now she's already safe at her home as she had gave me a phone call to keep me informed. After a few days of the time manage and practice, now I manage to handle all the work and get back to blogging. . . yeah!!!
Here some pics of Baniyah and Xin Nin I took for them just before I sent her to the agent house on 24th June 08... all this pictures will sure be the sweet memories for Xin Nin in future..

Both smiling ... so sweet !

I'm sure they will miss each other very much ...

Xin Nin showing her sad sad face ... haha !!!

I want to thank Baniyah for being so helpful while she is working with me. Although sometimes she is not delivering the job I want, but she is still my good maid. I wish her all the best in her life. Thank you, Baniyah!
