wide awake!

haluuu... i am awoke now when everybody's sleeping. guess this happens everytime i wanna travel; yesh! am travelling again peeps, but haven't pack yet! bad.

well the feelings are always like this whenever i have to travel:
  • should i pack early or not: end-up its always a last minute packing like now
  • .
  • some of the reasons of not packing early: dunno of what to bring, end-up bring more clothes/things than needed. well its good too what... in case there's an emergency or something and maybe had to put some extra stays etc(?).

  • butterflies flying in the stomach: although i experienced travelling alone many times already but still... duh!

i know i know... to sum it up, i have to improve this someway or somehow for my own good ツ

anyhow i was damn happy yesterday when i took the chance to join my seniors at a mini-meetup here in kualé. it was good to be there. and to tell you the truth, it was my first time too to meet them, after i left school. well except with kak suzie who eventually became my manager at the merdeka line dance idol in august.

oh, gosh! sorry peeps... i haven't got the chance to blog about the first ever line dance competition that i entered. well its already in the draft folder ya... at the meantime you could view the video by clicking the floating image of me receiving the certificate... hah!

here's a pic of me with some of my seniors that i met yesterday. the pic is courtesy of kak suzana. i chose this because... i looked good in it hehee... i can't recall much those on far left and right. but kak awanis, the one on my right, yes, she was our school's athlete. her high jump records still there!

but i am so proud of my school that i wanna show you people this:

and this pic too:

isn't those lovely...

after the quick meetup with them at a local café, we adjourned: i had to fetch megat while they went and gate-crashed our school!

from the pics obviously you could guess that our school has her own history. the first pic showed the main building where it used to be the residence of j.w.w. birch, the first british resident of perak.

the second one was a pic taken from the main building's tower warghhh!!!... to tell you all the truth, i haven't been up there myself yet! you could have a very nice view of kualé. take note that our school is located on the hill of bukit kerajaan.

to all my kakak-kakak, i missed you all already!

alright peeps, that's enough for now... i am afraid that i still have lots of packing to do. till then...

updates at 7:48 am:
and look at this too that kak awanis just uploaded. so can you all imagine that a british resident lived there...

capture your wedding day through the lens of family and friends

width="320"

wedding videos are one of the first things to go when young couples begin making hard decisions to balance their nuptial budget. wedit is helping couples celebrate "their big day" for a lifetime by providing an affordable, fun and easy way to capture, edit and share all of their wedding memories through digital video. i mean, the man behind the idea is so brilliant i tell you. read on to find out more...

through the service, wedit loans five high-definition video cameras to wedding couples to allow their guests to film the wedding and reception, giving newlyweds a glimpse of their special day through the eyes of their friends and family. guests can capture candid and fun moments that a professional videographer would not be able to obtain at a fraction of the cost.

according to brett demarrais, CEO of wedit- most people don't get a video because of the price. it's true.

having a videographer film the event and edit the tape afterward often starts at $1,500; leaving many young couples happy to stick with just a photographer. wedit whittles that base price down to $500 by mailing five HD flip cameras so people attending the wedding can capture it. the cameras come with a pre-packaged box the newly married couple can send back to wedit, which will edit cameras and provide the final cut that can be mailed on a cd or posted on the internet.

wedit is already started doing a handful of test weddings this summer!

let's take a good care of our teeth...

when you get your picture taken, everyone says, "say cheese! smile!" so you do — you open your mouth and show your teeth. when you see the picture, you see a happy person looking back at you. the healthier those teeth are, the happier you look. why is that?

no matter how old you are, you need to take care of your teeth and mouth. when your mouth is healthy, you can eat the foods you need for good nutrition. you will also feel better about smiling, talking, and laughing. teeth are meant to last a lifetime. by taking good care of your teeth and gums, you can protect them for many years.

i was lucky to get the chance to visit dr au recently. he did a thorough cleaning on my teeth~


PB122988



and now it has been cleaned, i promised myself to take a good care of it. i admit the last time i met the dentist was like a few years ago. meeting a dentist is just like a nightmare for me ler... hah!

i was told by dr au, that my gum was not in good order. in other word, it was BAD! "yes, i know doctor huhuu..." i should have make it a practice to see the dentist at least twice a year. and now that my gum was in a bad condition, dr au advised me to go through 4 sessions for further actions: he needs to further check my teeth via some x-rays. the process will takes about 45 minutes per session. the most important thingy is i need to be injected and to get numb as the process will be kinda painful ahh... that makes me more worried. but i am sure the dentist knows best. its my fault for not taking care of my teeth. even pregnant woman has an important role to do this as well. thanks to dr au, he said that its still not too late for me to keep my teeth good and healthy...


why healthy teeth are important

how does taking care of your teeth help with all those things? taking care of your teeth helps prevent plaque (say: plak), which is a clear film of bacteria (say: bak-teer-ee-uh) that sticks to your teeth.

after you eat, bacteria go crazy over the sugar on your teeth, like ants at a picnic. the bacteria break it down into acids that eat away tooth enamel, causing holes called cavities. plaque also causes gingivitis (say: jin-juh-vi-tis), which is gum disease that can make your gums red, swollen, and sore. your gums are those soft pink tissues in your mouth that hold your teeth in place.

if you don't take care of your teeth, cavities and unhealthy gums will make your mouth very, very sore. eating meals will be difficult. and you won't feel like smiling so much. read more on gum care here.


before toothpaste was invented

we are lucky that we know so much now about taking care of our teeth. long ago, as people got older, their teeth would rot away and be very painful. to get rid of a toothache, they had their teeth pulled out. finally people learned that cleaning their teeth was important, but they didn't have toothpaste right away. while you are swishing that minty-fresh paste around your mouth, think about what people used long ago to clean teeth:

  • ground-up chalk or charcoal

  • lemon juice

  • ashes (you know, the stuff that's left over after a fire)

  • tobacco and honey mixed together

yuck!

it was only about 100 years ago that someone finally created a minty cream to clean teeth. not long after that, the toothpaste tube was invented, so people could squeeze the paste right onto the toothbrush! tooth brushing became popular during world war II. the u.s. army gave brushes and toothpaste to all soldiers, and they learned to brush twice a day. back then, toothpaste tubes were made of metal; today they're made of soft plastic and are much easier to squeeze!

today there are plenty of toothpaste choices: lots of colors and flavors to choose from, and some are made just for kids. people with great-looking teeth advertise toothpaste on tv commercials and in magazines. when you are choosing a toothpaste, make sure it contains fluoride. fluoride makes your teeth strong and protects them from cavities.

when you brush, you don't need a lot of toothpaste: just squeeze out a bit the size of a pea. it's not a good idea to swallow the toothpaste, either, so be sure to rinse and spit after brushing.


how you can keep your teeth healthy

kids can take charge of their teeth by taking these steps:

  1. brush at least twice a day — after breakfast and before bedtime. if you can, brush after lunch or after sweet snacks. brushing properly breaks down plaque.

  2. brush all of your teeth, not just the front ones. spend some time on the teeth along the sides and in the back. have your dentist show you the best way to brush to get your teeth clean without damaging your gums.

  3. take your time while brushing. spend at least 2 or 3 minutes each time you brush. if you have trouble keeping track of the time, use a timer or play a recording of a song you like to help pass the time.

  4. be sure your toothbrush has soft bristles (the package will tell you if they're soft). get a new toothbrush every 3 months. some toothbrushes come with bristles that change color when it's time to change them.

  5. ask your dentist if an antibacterial mouth rinse is right for you.

  6. learn how to floss your teeth, which is a very important way to keep them healthy. it feels weird the first few times you do it, but pretty soon you will be a pro. slip the dental floss between each tooth and along the gum line gently once a day. the floss gets rid of food that's hidden where your toothbrush can't get it, no matter how well you brush.

  7. you can also brush your tongue to help keep your breath fresh!


it's also important to visit the dentist twice a year. besides checking for signs of cavities or gum disease, the dentist will help keep your teeth extra clean and can help you learn the best way to brush and floss.

it's not just brushing and flossing that keep your teeth healthy — you also need to be careful about what you eat and drink. remember, the plaque on your teeth is just waiting for that sugar to arrive. eat lots of fruits and vegetables and drink water instead of soda. and don't forget to smile!

love the earth no matter what

i will normally keep some recycle shopping bags in the car. so i brought tesco's bags when we wanna shop at jusco yesterday. for mom, jusco's one are meant for wet market only now since it doesn't look good no more. ok, fine.


PA313021



at first mom was worried as if the staff don't want to accept different bags other than theirs... walaweiii!!! so i told mom that when we wanna save the environment, it doesn't matter whether we have to use the shop's bags only~ the most important thingy is that we didn't use ANY plastic bags! :)

and in our case, it shouldn't be a problem for jusco even though we use different recycle bags. we bought things from them anyway, right?

so how about you people: do you have problems using different recycle bags at different shops?


PA313022



anyhow i haven't try this locally though, as i find people here are quite weird. and i didn't see shops here encouraged their customers not to use plastic bags. i saw the local the store supermarket has started to sell their own recycle shopping bags. but i still see plastics being used widely. like i said earlier, people find it weird seeing me using my own bags.

i truly hope that the local authority will start to do something. this is serious. we could see people in other states have already used to 'save the plastic' campaign. i know in penang, consumers will be charged if they didn't bring their own bags and still use the shop's plastics on every monday, while in selangor is every saturday. i merely don't understand why they never wanna practice this campaign here... duh!
