If you remember my previous post on the carpark bully in Singapore, check this out. I found it from Rainer Yong's blog. So what if you drive a TOYOTA? To me this is one


How I ask can you messed something like this up. I hope you are blind so I'd excuse you. But if you are not. You must be the stupidest, inconsiderate, ass hole of the century to take up two handicap parking space!!! Ladies and gentleman car number is WPK6393

This is my comment in his post:-
Itu memang kurang ajar! Bapa Mama tidak ajar dia untuk menjadi prihatin terhadap orang-orang kurang upaya. Bikin malu saja!

Which also means MLM (no manner)! His/her parents never teach him/her to be more considerate on handicap. Shame on him/her!

Don't you think this is

Good Information-on Signs of a Stroke

This is Good  Information!
STROKE: Remember The 1st Three  Letters...

My friend sent  this to me and encouraged me to post it and spread the word. I  agree. If everyone can remember something this simple, we could  save some folks. Seriously.. Please read:

During a BB Q, a friend stumbled and took a  little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they  offered to call paramedics) and just tripped over a brick  because of her new shoes. They got her cleaned up and got her a  new plate of food - while she appeared a bit shaken up, Ingrid  went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening. Ingrid's  husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been  taken to the hospital - (at 6:00pm, Ingrid passed away.) She had  suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the  signs of a stroke, perhaps Ingrid would be with us today. Some  don't die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition  instead.
It only takes a minute to read  this...
A  neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3  hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally.  He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed,  and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours,  which is tough.

Thank God for the sense to remember  the "3" steps, STR . Read and Learn!
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult  to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells  disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when  people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.
Now  doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three  simple questions:

  *Ask the individual to SMILE.
*Ask the person to  TALK . to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE
(Coherently) (i.e. . . It is sunny out  today)
  *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

{NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask  the person to 'stick' out their tongue... if the tongue is  'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an  indication of a stroke}
If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these  tasks, call 9-1-1 immediately and describe the symptoms to the  dispatcher.
A  cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to  10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.

Employed VS Job Loss

Read the newspaper everyday & u can see the word 'Job Cut! Retrenchment! Salary Cut!' Well salary cut is better then job cut... at least u got some monies to pay off ur loan & maybe some left over to buy some food & entertainment!

Ever wander why some of ur friend get lay off first or have the first cut in salary while some still remain the same or worse still got some salary increment? Well read the following stories...

Story #1

Fox: "Do you know the time, because my watch is broken"

Lion: "Oh, I can easily fix the watch for you"

Fox: "Hmm... But it's a very complicated mechanism, and your big claws will only destroy it even more."

Lion: "Oh no, give it to me, and it will be fixed"

Fox: "That's ridiculous! Any fool knows that lazy lions with great claws cannot fix complicated watches"

Lion: "Sure they do, give it to me and it will be fixed"

The lion disappears into his cave, and after a while he comes back with the watch which is running perfectly. The fox is impressed, and the lion continues to lie lazily in the sun, looking very pleased with himself.

Soon a wolf comes along and stops to watch the lazy lion in the sun.

Wolf: "Can I come and watch TV tonight with you, because mine is broken"

Lion: "Oh, I can easily fix your TV for you"

Wolf: "You don't expect me to believe such rubbish, do you? There is no way that a lazy lion with big claws can fix a complicated TV.

Lion: "No problem. Do you want to try it?"

The lion goes into his cave, and after a while comes back with a perfectly fixed TV. The wolf goes away happily and amazed.

Scene : Inside the lion's cave. In one corner are half a dozen small and intelligent looking rabbits who are busily doing very complicated work with very detailed instruments. In the other corner lies a huge lion looking very pleased with himself.


Management Lesson in the context of the working world :


Now if u r the 'subordinates' of such a Boss then u r safe from job cut b'cos ur Boss need u & what u can do. In bad economy period it pay to 'protect' ur Boss as indirectly u r 'protecting' urself!

Story # 2

It's a fine sunny day in the forest and a rabbit is sitting outside his burrow, tippy-tapping on his typewriter. Along comes a fox, out for a walk.

Fox: "What are you working on?"

Rabbit: "My thesis."

Fox: "Hmm... What is it about?"

Rabbit: "Oh, I'm writing about how rabbits eat foxes."

Fox: "That's ridiculous ! Any fool knows that rabbits don't eat foxes!

Rabbit: "Come with me and I'll show you!"

They both disappear into the rabbit's burrow. After few minutes, gnawing on a fox bone, the rabbit returns to his typewriter and resumes typing.

Soon a wolf comes along and stops to watch the hardworking rabbit.

Wolf: "What's that you are writing?"

Rabbit: "I'm doing a thesis on how rabbits eat wolves."

Wolf: "you don't expect to get such rubbish published, do you?"

Rabbit: "No problem. Do you want to see why?"

The rabbit and the wolf go into the burrow and again the rabbit returns by himself, after a few minutes, and goes back to typing.

Finally a bear comes along and asks, "What are you doing?

Rabbit: "I'm doing a thesis on how rabbits eat bears."

Bear: "Well that's absurd !"

Rabbit: "Come into my home and I'll show you"

Scene : As they enter the burrow, the rabbit introduces the bear to the lion.


Management Lesson in the context of the working world:


This is a very simple logic! Unpopular, unproductive stuff are the first to get the boot! So it pay to be 'productive', it might be a good ideal to learn new skill & most importantly show to ur Boss that u r a company 'asset' & not a 'liabilities' & of cause be in your Boss good book!

This post was taken from Hor ny Ang Moh's blog. Hopefully he don't mind one of this readers to share the good things from his blog :)

Asparagus - Remedy for Kidney Stones and Cancer

For whatever this might be worth to you…….  Asparagus

I am a biochemist,and have specialized in the relation of diet to health for over 50 years. Several years ago, I had a man seeking asparagus for a friend who had cancer. He gave me a photocopied copy of a article, entitled `Asparagus for cancer' printed in Cancer News Journal, December 1979.

I will share it here, just as it was shared with me:  Several years ago, I learned of the discovery of Richard R. Vensal, D.D.S. that asparagus might cure cancer. Since then, I have worked with him on his project. We have accumulated a number of favorable case histories.

Here are a few examples:

Case No. 1, A man with an almost hopeless case of Hodgkin's disease (cancer of the lymph glands) who was completely incapacitated. Within 1 year of starting the asparagus therapy, his doctors were unable to detect any signs of cancer, and he was back on a schedule of strenuous exercise.

Case No. 2, a successful businessman 68 years old who suffered from cancer of the bladder for 16 years. After years of medical treatments, including radiation without improvement, he went on asparagus. Within 3 months, examinations revealed that his bladder tumor had disappeared and that his kidneys were normal.

Case No. 3, a man who had lung cancer. On March 5th 1971 he was put on the operating table where they found lung cancer so widely spread that it was inoperable. The surgeon sewed him up and declared his case hopeless. On April 5th he heard about the asparagus therapy and immediately started taking it. By August, x-ray pictures revealed that all signs of the cancer had disappeared. He is back at his regular business routine.

Case No. 4, a woman who was troubled for a number of years with skin cancer. She finally developed different skin cancers which were diagnosed by a skin specialist as advanced. Within 3 months after starting on asparagus, her skin specialist said that her skin looked fine and no more skin lesions. This woman reported that the asparagus therapy also cured her kidney disease, which started in 1949. She had over 10 operations for kidney stones, and was receiving government disability payments for an inoperable, terminal, kidney condition. She attributes the cure of this kidney trouble entirely to the asparagus.

I was not surprised at this result,as `The elements of materia medica', edited in 1854 by a Professor at the University of Pennsylvania , stated that asparagus was used as a popular remedy for kidney stones. He even referred to experiments, in 1739, on the power of asparagus in dissolving stones.

We would have other case histories but the medical establishment has interfered with our obtaining some of the records. I amtherefore appealing to readers to spread this good news and help usto gather a large number of case histories that will overwhelm the medical skeptics about this unbelievably simple and natural  remedy.
 For the treatment, asparagus should be cooked before using, and therefore canned asparagus is just as good as fresh.

I have corresponded with the two leading canners of asparagus, Giant Giant and Stokely, and I am satisfied that these brands contain no pesticides or preservatives.
Place the cooked asparagus in a blender and liquefy to make a puree, and store in the refrigerator. Give the patient 4 full tablespoons twice daily, morning and evening.

Patients usually show some improvement in from 2-4 weeks. It can be dilutedwith water and used as a cold or hot drink. This suggested dosage is based on present experience, but certainly larger amounts can do no harm and may be needed in some cases.

As a biochemist I am convinced of the oldsaying that `what cures can prevent'. Based on this theory, my wife and I have been using asparagus puree as a beverage with our meals.
We take 2 tablespoons diluted in water to suit our taste with breakfast and with dinner. I take mine hot and my wife prefers hers cold. For years we have made it a practice to have blood surveys taken as part of our regular checkups.

The last blood survey, taken by a medical doctor who specialises in the nutritional approach to health, showed substantial improvements in all categories over the last one,  and we can attribute these improvements to nothing but the  asparagus drink.

As a biochemist, I have made an extensive study of all aspects of cancer, and all of the proposed cures. As a result, I am convinced that asparagus fits in better with the latest theories about cancer. Asparagus contains a good supply of protein called histones, which are believed to be active in controlling cell growth.  For that reason, I believe asparagus can be said to contain a substance that I call cell growth normalizer.. That accounts for its action on cancer and in acting as a general body tonic.

In any event, regardless of theory, asparagus used as we suggest, is a harmless substance.

The FDA cannot prevent you from using it and it may do you much good. It has been reported by the US National Cancer Institute, that asparagus is the highest tested food containing
glutathione, which is considered one of the body's most potent  anti-carcinogens and antioxidants.

NEW tires for the rear or the front?

The best is to change all four tyres together but if two only, then

(Contrary to what our local tyre shop guys are telling us!)


Wow! This is against everything my tyre shop has been telling me all this while.
Have to remember this useful safety tip now.

Watch this important safety video from Michelin The video will show u why u must always put the new tyes on the rear wheels.

On wet roads, the new tyres at the rear of the car will prevent its tail from spinning because of better grip in the rear n hence ensure higher driving safety.

Heed this advice seriouslyWhere to put the new tires? watch this video from Michelin.

It advises to put the new tires always in the rear

New Tires!

Yes, those are 'spoke' like connection fins to the inner part of the tyre from the outside tread 'wrap!' The next picture shows how odd it looks in motion....
These tires are made in South Carolina , USA .
a radical new tyre design by Michelin. The next generation of tires. They had a pair at the Philadelphia car show. Thought I would share with you.

Yes, those are 'spoke' like connection fins to the inner part of the tyre from the outside tread 'wrap!' The next picture shows how odd it looks in motion....

Makes you wonder how the ride feels doesn't it? Well it is fantastic in the extreme! 

These tyres are airless and are scheduled to be out on the market very soon.

The bad news for Police and other law enforcement is that stinger spikes will not work on these.

Just think of the impact on existing technology: 
A. no more air valves...
B. no more air compressors at Petrol stations...
C. no more repair kits... 
D. no more flat tires... 
E. Less expensive and more money in the drivers pocket…

These are actual pictures taken in the South Carolina plant of Michelin.
