A busy week..

It was a busy week.

A new director came into the work place, and it was meeting, after meeting.
Last night it ended 9pm.
My bird brain was overloaded with information. (LOL)

Anyway, have you registered for the Standard Chartered Marathon Run 2011?
I signed up the 10km one this year. Still not that confident to do a 21km, yet. HAHA!

Marathon fans, the website to register is: HERE

I have one in September and this standchart run in December.

Keep fit, Hong Wei.

May this picture keep you motivated.

Life, Leaving, Friends always.

Although i left the company during November last year,i am still missing the wonderful colleagues and friends.

They were always supporting and great people to work with, if not for the sudden "buy over" by another company, i guess i will still be there, working.

Anyway recently, i been hearing many of them leaving (like me too) and heading to a new place. Even my ex Boss sms me, telling me she's leaving too!

I had my bumpy journey after i left too, things were never the same after i left..therefore i am wishing them all the best too!

Whatever it is, i sure hope we will always keep in touch with each other, everyone being happy and great health always. =]

Let's treat it as: we "graduated" from that work place.

The Only Constant In Life Is Change.

It's been two years, how are you ?

Hi Michael, it's been 2 years on Earth.
Many of us are missing you here.
How are you doing over the other dimension of the world?

Two years ago, during this day, i was in the hospital accompanying my grandma for her checkup, and saw the news of your death over the TV.

I also posted about your leaving on my blog too, did you happened to read that?

Anyway, just to update you, Earth has been rather sick lately, with earthquakes and tsunami in Japan, which caused the melting and damages of the nuclear plants..
Earthquakes were present in New Zealand also..
Even the volcano in Iceland started erupting too...
And as usual, the weather is still as hot, with temperature rising..

If you see someone at your side who can help, can you please discuss it with him or her??

I hope there will be lesser disasters and everyone is happy with everyone.

I also hope the real reason of you leaving us can be found out soon, and who ever is the culprit must be punished for taking you away from us.

Miss you, MJ.

The Habitat-Barclays Bare Your Sole 2011, 18 June 2011

As we are eating that plate of chicken rice, is someone over the other end of the world eating a same plate of chicken rice as you do?

Of course, not!
There are people who are starving, or without food to eat!

Few weeks ago, my friend invited me to join in The Habitat-Barclays Bare Your Sole 2011 event.

It is an barefoot walk event, which is an initiative that lets us all support these children and adults who live in dire conditions, raising much needed funds for projects to improve these people's living conditions by building homes and fighting poverty.

This is my first time taking part in this event, a short 2.5km barefoot walk. Hope for good weather, and of course, raise lots of funds! =)

Before you throw away that plate of food in which you can't finish, THINK.

Doctor say i got "brain tumor"...!

The headache, that bothered me 2 weeks ago came back!
Took another day MC on Friday. =(

Since i just visit the doctor 2 weeks ago, she said that i might have "brain tumor", therefore the frequent headache.. Is she trying to scare me or what? -___-"

Anyway shall share some personal (natural) methods of mine for headaches :-
I drink lots of water.. (tons of it actually) As most of us works in the air con office, we get dehydrated easily too.

I also try hard not to eat panadols (or pain killers), as i know when you need 2 tablets of them today, you might need 4 tablets in the next day, and soon, they will lose its effects.
However i took 2 of them on Thursday night..

The other method would be having enough sleep(and i mean tons of it!).
Therefore, straight after work, i try hard to get home by 7:30pm, and sleep before 10pm.
However this din work too..

After some surfing of the net, i realized there are also other natural methods!
Quoted from HERE:
  • Cayenne pepper can help clear your sinuses. If you suffer from sinus headaches, this type of home remedy can be a natural headache cure.
  • Drink decaf. If you're a coffee, tea or soda drinker then you might be bringing on your headaches because of caffeine. If you fail to get that caffeine, you might get a withdrawal headache. You can either get a caffeinated drink when that happens or start curbing the caffeine out of your diet altogether.
  • Drink water. Oftentimes, people get a headache because they are dehydrated. Getting some water in to your system can get rid of that headache. Drinking room temperature water is your best bet since water that is too cold can give temporarily give you even more of a headache.
  • Eat right. If you get headaches on a regular basis, it could be due to a food allergy or a vitamin that is missing from your diet. Eat healthy and pay attention to what you eat and how you feel afterwards so that you can prevent the headache from happening in the first place. Also, if you get a headache, ask yourself if it's because you haven't eaten. Sometimes skipping meals can cause headaches so all you need to do is get some food in your system.
  • Fresh air. Breathing deeply can do wonders for a headache in general; it'll be even more effective as a natural headache cure if you do it out in the fresh air.
  • Lemons. Lemon juice added to water or tea can be a natural cure for a headache. You can also take the peel of a lemon and grind it up to make a paste. Applied to the face and forehead, this may be a headache cure as well because of the aromatherapy properties it has.
  • Mint. Mint is soothing, especially in teas. And it can be a great natural way to get rid of your headache. Peppermint water will work as well.
  • Take a nap. You might have a headache because you need some rest. This is especially true if your lack of sleep is causing you to strain your eyes during the day, resulting in a headache. If you can get away and take a nap when the headache comes on, you might wake up to find that it's gone.

Another way that i found out, would be listening to music or sounds with Binaural beats!
They are auditory processing artifacts, or apparent sounds, the perception of which arises in the brain for specific physical stimuli.
This effect was discovered in 1839 by Heinrich Wilhelm Dove, and earned greater public awareness in the late 20th century based on claims that binaural beats could help induce relaxation, meditation, creativity and other desirable mental states.

The brain produces a phenomenon resulting in low-frequency pulsations in the amplitude and sound localization of a perceived sound when two tones at slightly different frequencies are presented separately, one to each of a subject's ears, using stereo headphones. A beating tone will be perceived, as if the two tones mixed naturally, out of the brain. The frequencies of the tones must be below 1,000 hertz for the beating to be noticeable. The difference between the two frequencies must be small (less than or equal to 30 Hz) for the effect to occur; otherwise, the two tones will be heard separately and no beat will be perceived.

Some videos i found :

There are of course more of such music or sounds if you go find them. =)

Come to think of it, was i stressing myself too much recently?
Or its my work being too stressful??

Take care, all my dear friends!

Dumpling Festival (端午節)

Hi all, today is Dumpling Festival or 端午節.
This festival occurs on the 5th day of the 5th month of the lunar calendar.

(Quoted from Wiki)
The best-known traditional story holds that the festival commemorates the death of poet Qu Yuan (Chinese: 屈原) (c. 340 BCE – 278 BCE) of the ancient state of Chu, in the Warring States Period of the Zhou Dynasty. 

A descendant of the Chu royal house, Qu served in high offices. However, when the king decided to ally with the increasingly powerful state of Qin, Qu was banished for opposing the alliance. 
Qu Yuan was accused of treason. During his exile, Qu Yuan wrote a great deal of poetry, for which he is now remembered. 

Twenty-eight years later, Qin conquered the capital of Chu. In despair, Qu Yuan committed suicide by drowning himself in the Miluo River on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month.

It is said that the local people, who admired him, threw lumps of rice into the river to feed the fish so that they would not eat Qu Yuan's body. This is said to be the origin of zongzi. The local people were also said to have paddled out on boats, either to scare the fish away or to retrieve his body. This is said to be the origin of dragon boat racing.

* * * * * * * * 

And that is how the zong zi, or dumplings came about. =)

My friend, Tian Fa's nice mum actually made some for me, and he drove specially to my house just to deliver them!

Thank you so much, brother!!

Have you taken your dumplings? =)
