Christmas in the City !

Its Shung's first Christmas in the city , and he is full of curiosity and excitement........
He has been to his first New Year countdown when he was 1+ but never been to the city with stories of Santa before.
''Santa comes to earth on Christmas eve to give toys to boys and girls who has been 'good' throughout the year!''
So remember to be good, and when you see Santa, remember to tell him what you want...and remember to tell him where you live!!!''
That's the story.....

Ya! I have been good!

Gee-Ma , can I touch the Christmas tree??

All these toys are for pick and choose what you want and you tell Santa, and he will bring you the toy on Christmas eve.

Nothing to his likes.....
........after hours he couldn't find anything he really wanted.

'I know ady...I want a PSP for Christmas!
"Jiu Jiu can you take me to Santa ? I got a message for him."

There was Christmas in the air...but no Santa!
After walking for hours....still no sign of Santa....(apa punya shopping mall??.... tarak Santa!)

Hello! Have you seen Santa???!!!

The search continue after dinner .......

Still no sign of Santa!

Our little fellow was SO desperate for Santa....and when this charming young 'stranger' appear at our door greeting us all with ....
"Ho ho ho ! Merry Christmas everyone!''
...... he was SO sure that he was Santa! Hahahahaha!!!
Nothing I told him was gonna change his mind!
So he went to whisper in this stranger's ear his christmas wish! (so cute) wakakakaka!!
Should have taken the picture of his joyous excited look! Sorry no pictures of that!
Sure his wish was repeated loudly for all to hear!
'' Ah shung wants a PSP for Christmas!!!'' (which we already know)
(Yes this stranger is Johnson Wee)
Grandpa ask why he did not ask his Dad to buy him a PSP instead.
His reply " Daddy's money is for taking us for trips to places like Genting! Dad will not buy toys for me."
So his hope is that Santa will.
" Dear Santa, My name is Lo Jay Shung, I want a PSP for Christmas!''
''My house is in Changlun.''
Santa John was here to collect something.......
as he packed ( shung was thinking...Santa is packing gifts for little boys and girls)......
shung watch him closely and when he was about to leave,
shung escorted Santa John down to the guard house with Jiu Jiu.
He came back and told me ....
"GeeMa, Santa did not disappear or neither did he come with his reindeer! "
But still , he believed this stranger was Santa!!!

Merry Christmas!!!!! Ho Ho Ho!!!!!

Goodbye Nokia , Hello Sony Ericsson !

Lost my reading glasses .....and now my handphone. All in the same week!

Everyone up north Kedah/Perlis be alert! If you see anyone using a Nokia 6300 with Danell's Angin Malam or Everytime as ringtone, you can bet its my lost handphone!!!!Hiaz!!

Ya, my handphone got stolen.
I was shopping in a boutique in Kangar. After trying some dresses in the changing room, I returned the bunch back to the counter. I had my handphone in one hand. I guess I must have put the phone down together with the clothes as I took my purse out to pay for a dress I picked. That's the last time I had my phone!
I discovered I lost my phone when I got to my office, fifteen minutes later. I call my phone from my office line. It was switch off already!
I rushed back to the shop and ask the shop assistant if she saw my handphone. The answer was obvious. I search the whole shop , I guess she must have kept it away! Bless her! That will be the last time I go to that shop no matter how much I love her clothes. So so sad!

The most frustrated part is ...... I lost all my contacts........Aagrh!!!

Nokia 6300

The best part is , I get to inherit Idolhunter's almost new sony Ericsson P1i!
Better images , bigger memory, better sound....Yeah! Like they say...old one dun ones won't come!!

pic of Sony Ericsson P1i

So my dear friends if you don't mind send me Xmas Greetings so that I can re-record your contact numbers.Remember to put your names ok!

Merry Christmas!....cheers, joy and peace to you! Ho Ho Ho!!!

(Oh ya...someone ask me . Anything 'secret' you lost with the handphone? ahemm(whisper) inside my lost phone there were lots of XXX video clip! hee hee!)

Got a cheap one from my optician Thursday,........ guess my age , I wear a 175 reading lenses!

Tried them over the weekend and was quite satisfied with the appearance but I think they were quite a strain to my night driving.

English Is A Stupid Language !


Let's face it
English is a stupid language.
There is no egg in the eggplant
No ham in the hamburger
And neither pine nor apple in the pineapple.
English muffins were not invented in England
French fries were not invented in France.
We sometimes take English for granted
But if we examine its paradoxes we find that
Quicksand takes you down slowly
Boxing rings are square
And a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.
If writers write, how come fingers don't fing.
If the plural of tooth is teeth
Shouldn't the plural of phone booth be phone beeth
If the teacher taught,
Why didn't the preacher praught.
If a vegetarian eats vegetables
What the heck does a humanitarian eat?
Why do people recite at a play
Yet play at a recital?
Park on driveways and
Drive on parkways
You have to marvel at the unique lunacy
Of a language where a house can burn up as
It burns down
And in which you fill in a form
By filling it out
And a bell is only heard once it goes!
English was invented by people, not computers
And it reflects the creativity of the human race
(Which of course isn't a race at all)
That is why
When the stars are out they are visible
But when the lights are out they are invisible
And why it is that when I wind up my watch
It starts
But when I wind up this observation,
It ends.

Yoga Sun Salutation.

Five years ago, I attended my first YOGA Class in Alor Setar.
I liked the class very much. Its was very relaxing and I come out of each lesson walking straight and full of energy!
Two years later, I attended another class in Changlun , I learnt the same 1st Stage Yoga, hoping the class will continue with the 2nd stage...but it never did.
I read somewhere that it is good enough if you can do 4 Sun Salutations each time for daily exercise and increasing to 12 sun salutations as your strength and stamina increases.
The serenity of Yoga Sun Salutation is a series of 12 continuous movements which will tone and strengthen your whole body while increasing your flexibility.
Yoga done with proper breathing sequence will help you develop peace of mind ,dropping stress, improvement your balance, gain energy and lose weight etc etc...
Look at the youtube below......

are you ready for it???
Go register yourself into a good Yoga class!

Removing Gallstones Naturally

Many things happened this week .....
Two persons I know , was diagnose with gallstones.
I recall hearing my brother telling me about his Gallstones Removal Remedy, so I decided to contact him for the remedy.

1. Liver 2. Common Bile Duct3. Gallstones4. Gallbladder

Sharing here the easy-to-do-at-home gall bladder cleansing:
It has worked for many. If it works for you please pass on the good news. Chiu Nan is not charging for it, so we should make it free for everyone. Your reward is when someone, through your word of mouth, benefits from the regime. Gallstones may not be everyone's concern. But they should be because we all have them.Moreover, gallstones may lead to cancer. "Cancer is never the first illness," Chiu Nan points out. "Usually, there are a lot of other problems leading to cancer. In my research in China, I came across some materials which say that people with cancer usually have stones. We all have gallstones. It's a matter of big or small, many or few. One of the symptoms of gallstones is a feeling of bloatedness after a heavy meal. You feel like you can't digest the food. If it gets more serious, you feel pain in the liver area." So if you think you have gallstones, Chiu Nan offers the following method to remove them naturally.
The treatment is also good for those with a weak liver, because the liver and gallbladder are closely linked.
1. For the first five days, take four glasses of apple juice every day. Or eat four or five apples, whichever you prefer. Apple juice softens the gallstones. During the five days, eat normally.
2. On the sixth day, take no dinner.
3. At 6 PM, take a teaspoon of Epsom salt (magnesium sulphate) with a glass of warm water.
4. At 8 PM, repeat the same. Magnesium sulphate opens the gallbladder ducts.
5. At 10 PM, take half cup olive oil (or sesame oil) with half cup fresh lemon juice. Mix it well and drink it. The oil lubricates the stones to ease their passage.
The next morning, you will find green stones in your stools. "Usually they float," Chiu Nan notes. "You might want to count them. I have had people who passes 40, 50 or up to 100 stones. Very many." "Even if you don't have any symptoms of gallstones, you still might have some. It's always good to give your gall bladder a clean-up now and then.
