How to Lock Your Car and Why?????

I locked my car. As I walked away I heard my car door unlock. I went back and locked my car again three times. Each time, as soon as I started to walk away, I would hear it unlock again!! Naturally alarmed, I looked around and there were two guys sitting in a car in the fire lane, next to the store.

They were obviously watching me intently, and there was no doubt they were somehow involved in this very weird situation... I quickly chucked the errand I was on, jumped in my car and sped away. I went straight to the police station, told them what had happened, and found out I was part of a new, and very successful, scheme being used to gain entry into cars.

Two weeks later, my friend's son had a similar happening....
While travelling, my friend's son stopped at a roadside rest to use the bathroom. When he came out to his car less than 4-5 minutes later, someone had gotten into his car and stolen his cell phone, laptop computer, GPS navigator, briefcase.....you name it. He called the police and since there were no signs of his car being broken into, the police told him he had been a victim of the latest robbery tactic -- there is a device that robbers are using now to clone your security code when you lock your doors on your car using your key-chain locking device...

They sit a distance away and watch for their next victim. They know you are going inside of the store, restaurant, or bathroom and that they now have a few minutes to steal and run.

The police officer said to manually lock your car door-by hitting the lock button inside the car -- that way if there is someone sitting in a parking lot watching for their next victim, it will not be you...

When you hit the lock button on your car upon exiting, it does not send the security code, but if you walk away and use the door lock on your key chain, it sends the code through the airwaves where it can be instantly stolen.

This is very real.

Be wisely aware of what you just read and please pass this note on.
Look how many times we all lock our doors with our remote just to be sure we remembered to lock them -- and bingo, someone has our code and whatever was in our car.

Please share with everyone you know!!!!!

Earlier symptom on H1N1

Subject: FW: Earlier symptom on H1N1




Hi all,

I was just informed by my GM whose her daughter has been down for fever think around 1 week. He took his daughter to Gleneagles Dr. Patrick for check-up. Dr. Patrick has gave him a very useful advice and i just wanted to share it with you guys.

When children has fever, the dr will prescribe the fever medicine to consume either in 4 or 6 hours period. I think all of you guys know very well on this. Normally the fever will go down after taken the medicine, and it will come back after 3 or 6 hours. But if it for H1N1 infectious, the fever will not be going down after taking the medicine and it will consistantly stay at high temperature for hours. And if this condition continous for 48 hrs, then the possibility of H1N1 infectious will be very high. For this case, i mean consistant high fever for 48 hrs, dr will straight away give the patient the H1N1 antiviral treatment, ie Tamiflu treatment for period of 7 days.

Subject: FW: Cure for H1N1 patient (Real Experience)

TO ALL FREINDS



JUST A SMALL BUT MEANINGFUL INFO FM ME TO YOU AND YR FRIENDS...MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE OF H1N1 SINCE IT PRACTICALLY HIT US LIKE A TIME BOMB.....

My staff was crying herself sick on Tuesday morning...was told that her son was confirmed of H1N1 in his Uni at Kangar, Perlis...worse was that when he was bedridden 2 days the warden didnt even bother to sent to hospital till his dad came fm KL and with his friends assistance brought him to GH Kangar....

No one bothered in the hospital and he was put in the normal ward for another 2 days!!! (imagine the amount of people he has infected!!) .....after 2 days and his eyes were turning yellow and saliva greenish...he was put in quarantined room...

His mom practically fainted just telling me the story.. cant do much cos she does not have enough money to go to the north with the father...

First thing we did was made her call the hospital and insist that they sent him to Sg.Buloh Hospital or any other hospital in KL since they seemed to be more alert and more equipt...they refused of course...so I sent her off to Kangar the same day to solve the problem.

Whilst this was happening, I had a call from one Ustaz who was in town to "help cure" another H1N1 child in Shah Alam....and was told this simple prescription by him.....

EAT MINIMUM 6 GREEN APPLES A DAY AND FRESH ORANGE JUICE
for those with sore throat please blend the apples and keep on taking till your fever disappear and yr symtoms are gone....I cannot explain it but the child in Shah Alam was ok too after taking this tip....

my staff's son was given the apple juice for the whole day on Monday/Tuesday and he was out of the fever yesterday Wednesday... .she called me and was crying on the phone to say that her son was out of ICU and was able to eat normally...all these happened within just 4 days today (thursday 6 august)...

This is just to share with my fellow sisters and brothers and hope this small info could assist others as well, No harm in trying and anything can happen!!!!

Robert Kuok Hock Nien's notes on the past sixty years

A very good write-up by Robert Kuok which every businessman and politician must read and put into practice.

(On the occasion of Kuok Group’s 60th Anniversary 10 April 2009)

(1) My brothers and I owe our upbringing completely to Mother. She was steeped in Ru-Jiao (儒教) – the teachings of Confucius (孔), Mencius (孟), Laozi (老子) and other Chinese sages.
Ru-Jiao teaches the correct behaviour for a human being on his life on earth. Mother gently, and sometimes strongly, drummed into the minds of her three boys the values of honesty, of never cheating, lying, stealing or envying other people their material wealth or physical attributes.

(2) Father died on 25 December 1948 night without leaving a will. Following the Japanese surrender, he had re-registered the firm as a sole proprietorship. We went to court to get an appointment as managers, permitting us to continue to manage Tong Seng & Co. The judge said that, as there were two widows, the firm and the estate should be wound up.

(3) We decide to establish Kuok Brothers Limited. In mid-January 1949, five of us met at a small roundtable in our home in Johore Bahru. Present were my MOTHER, cousin number five HOCK CHIN, cousin number twelve HOCK SENG, my brother HOCK KHEE nicknamed Philip (a.k.a. cousin number seventeen), and myself (a.k.a. cousin number twenty). We sat down and Mother said, “Nien,would you like to start?” I said, “Fine, yes I will start.” To cut the long story short, we got started, and commenced business from a little shop house in Johore Bharu on 1 April 1949.

(4) As a young man, I thought there was no substitute for hard work and thinking up good, honest business plans and, without respite, pushing them along. There will always be business on earth.
Be humble; be straight; don't be crooked; don't take advantage of people. To be a successful businessman, I think you really need to brush all your senses every morning, just as you brush your teeth. I coined the phrase “honing your senses” in business: your vision, hearing,sense of smell, touch and taste. All these senses come in very useful.

(5) Mother was the captain of our ship. She saw and sensed everything, but being a wise person she didn't interfere. Yet she was the background influence, the glue that bound the Group together. She taught my cousins and my brothers and me
never to be greedy, and that in making money one could practise high morality. She stressed that whenever the firm does well it should make donations to the charities operating in our societies. She always kept us focused on the big picture in business. For example: avoid businesses that bring harm, destruction or grief to people. This includes trades like gambling, drugs, arms sales, loan-sharking and prostitution.

(6) We started as little fish swimming in a bathtub. From there we went to a lake and now we are in the open seas. Today our businesses cover many industries and our operations are worldwide but this would not have been possible without the vision of the founding members, the dedicated contributions and loyalty of our colleagues and employees, and very importantly the
strong moral principles espoused by my mother.

(7) When I hire staff I
look for honest, hardworking, intelligent people.
When I look candidates in the eye, they must appear very honest to me. I do not look for MBAs or exceptional students. You may hire a brilliant man, summa cum laude, first-class honours, but if his mind is not a fair one or if he has a warped attitude in life, does brilliance really matter?

(8) Among the first employees were Lau Teo Chin (Ee Wor), Kwok Chin Luang (Ee Luang), Othman Samad (Kadir) and an Indian accountant called Joachim who was a devout Roman Catholic and who travelled in every day from Singapore where he lived.

(9) I would like on this special occasion to pay tribute to them and in particular to those who were with us in the early days; many of whom are no longer here. I have already mentioned Lau Teo Chin (Ee Wor) and Kwok Chin Luang (Ee Luang) and Othman Samad (Kadir), there are others like Lean Chye Huat, who is not here today due to failing eyesight, and Yusuf Sharif who passed away in his home country India about one and a half years ago and the late Lee Siew Wah, and others who all gave solid and unstinting support and devotion to the Company. It saddens me that in those early difficult years these pioneers did not enjoy significant and substantial rewards but such is the order of things and a most unfortunate aspect of capitalism.

However through our Group and employee Foundations, today we are able to help their descendants whenever there is a need to.

(10) I have learnt that
the success of a company must depend on the unity of all its employees. We are all in the same boat rowing against the current and tide and every able person must pull the oars to move the boat forward. Also, we must relentlessly endeavour to maintain and practice the values of integrity and honesty, and eschew and reject greed and arrogance.

(11) A few words of caution to all businessmen and women. I recall the Chinese saying: shibai nai chenggong zhi mu 失败乃成功之母(failure is the mother of success). But in the last thirty years of my business life, I have to the conclusion that the reverse phrase is even truer of today's world: chenggong nai shibai zhi mu 成功乃失败之母. Success often breeds failure, because it makes you arrogant, complacent and, therefore,
lowers your guard.

(12) The way forward for this world is through capitalism. Even China has come to realise it. But it's equally true that capitalism, if allowed to snowball along unchecked, can in many ways become destructive. Capitalism needs to be inspected under a magnifying glass once a day, a super-magnifying glass once a week, and put through the cleaning machine once a month.

In capitalism, man needs elements of ambition and greed to drive him. But where does ambition end and greed take over? That's why I say that capitalism, if left to its own devices, will snowball along, roll down the hill and cause a lot of damage. So a sound capitalist system requires very strongly led, enlightened, wise governments. That means politician-statement willing to sacrifice their lives for the sake of their people. I don't mean politicians who are there for fame, glory and to line their pockets.

(13) To my mind the two great challenges facing China are
the restoration of education in morals and the establishment of a rule of law. You must begin from the root up, imbuing and infusing moral lessons and morality into youth, both at home and from kindergarten and primary school upward through university. Every Chinese needs to accept the principle of rule of law, then you have to train upright judges and lawyers to uphold the legal system.

(14) Wealth should be used for two main purposes. One: for the generation of greater wealth; in other words, you continue to invest, creating prosperity and jobs in the country. Two: part of your wealth should be applied to the betterment of mankind, either by acts of pure philanthropy or by investment in research and development along the frontiers of science, space, health care and so forth.

Tan Sri Robert Kuok Hock Nien (born 6 October 1923, in Johor Baru, Johor), is an influential Malaysian Chinese businessman. According to Forbes his net worth is estimated to be around $10 billion on May 2008, making him the richest person in Southeast Asia. He is media shy and discreet, most of his businesses are privately held by him or his family. Apart from a multitude of enterprises in Malaysia , his companies have investments in many countries throughout Asia .

His business interests range from sugarcane plantations (Perlis Plantations Bhd), sugar refinery, flour milling, animal feed, oil and mining to finance, hotels, properties, trading and freight and publishing.

Beware: Cheque can be tampered by special ink

Just received an email from friend as below.

Subject: Cheques can be tampered by special ink so don't send by post.
--------------------------
Dear All,

There is an amazing way to steal money now!!

In early Feb 2009, I posted 2 cheques in 2 envelopes supplied by the credit card companies. I deposited the 2 envelopes into a postbox near my condo..

A few days later I was surprised that my account was overdrawn by more than the amount I have issued.

When I checked with the bank, I was told that the two cheques have been cleared but the amount debited was much higher than I had written!!!

I checked with the credit card companies and was told that they have not received the cheques for payment!!!

I suspect that the postman who collected the mails or those handling the mails therafter must have intercepted the two envelopes and must have got links to the bank.

I made a police report and was told that I am not the only one with this problem!! Then I went to the bank to ask for images of the checks and was told it will take a few days to get the information the police require.

I was also told by the bank customer relations officer that the technology is so advance now that there is a liquid which can be applied to the cheques and wipe out what you have written and the crooks will write over my cheques!!!

So please do not post your cheques. Looks like nothing is safe now and do not know who can be trusted these days.

I am waiting to see how my cheques have been altered or ???!!!
It is simply amazing what brains are used for nowadays.

Please tell all your friends and relatives to warn them of the danger.

Joint Tenancy vs Joint account issue in Malaysia

Date: Thu, Jul 30, 2009 at 10:05 PM
Subject: Fw: Joint account issue in Malaysia...Make sure it is Joint Tenancy
To:


Dear Friends,

Just to share with you one recent article i read and shocked me a lot. It happens in west Malaysia, husband and wife and 1 son. Husband pass away due to accident, husband has a RM50k joint saving account with wife, what happen is the wife / like most people think, when husband pass away, she will get the money automatically since it is joint account. But to her surprise, She could not withdraw even a single cent!! Joint saving account is meant for convenience when spouse need it the most, but most people always assume once the other holder dies, another half will get the money automatically which is very wrong.

I would like to share my opinion with all of you, you may take it as educational thoughts or for you to be aware. When one person dies, the other joint holder of the saving account will get the money automatically only if that particular bank practise 'JOINT TENANCY' - this terms means one party die, the other joint party gets money automatically.But unfortunately,not all banks practise JOINT TENANCY, some foreign banks practise and most local banks don't practise, If you want to be sure, just ask your bank is their joint saving account based on JOINT TENANCY, if it is yes, get the black and white.

Can u all imagine, when husband pass away, the wife already has to suffer emotional loss, now suffering the problem of having 'NO MONEY' although it is in a joint account. Because of husband ignorance, now the wife and son pay for it.

Hope the above serves as a help to you.

Stay well.

Liability for stolen credit card capped at RM200

A good reminder ... don't get cheated by the banks!

Liability for stolen credit card capped at RM200, court rules
By Edward Cheah

KUALA LUMPUR, June 9 – The High Court ruled today that the maximum that can be charged to a credit cardholder who has lost his/her credit card is RM200.
Lawyer Datuk Vijaya Kumar told The Malaysian Insider that Diana Chee Vun Hsia discovered her credit cards missing a day after they were stolen. She then reported it to the issuing banks.
Citibank informed her that RM1,851 had been charged the day it was stolen and that, according to company policy, she was deemed liable for the full amount because she did not report the card stolen within one hour.

She took Citibank to court to challenge this policy late last year.

Today, the High Court found in her favour when it said that, according to Bank Negara guidelines, the maximum that can be charged to the cardholder by credit card companies after a card is stolen is RM200, regardless of any company policies regarding elapsed time or amount.

Justice Datuk Mohamed Apandi Ali said that the Bank Negara guidelines “have the force of law.” – Bernama

養不起的未來

日本的諷刺明星兼導演北原武不久前又獲得一個電影的國際獎。

幾年前他的母親去世,他回故鄉去奔喪,他一直不喜歡母親,因為她一直不斷向這一個兒子要錢,只要他一個月沒有寄錢回家,母親就打電話給他破口大罵,真是所謂的死要錢, 而且北原武越出名,她索取的錢越多。

回到家之後,他還是忍不住大哭一場,想到他一直在外,沒有好好供養媽媽,雖然是死要錢的媽媽,他還是覺得虧待母親。

等辦完喪事,北原武正要離開家的時候,他的大哥把一個小包袱給了他說:

這是媽媽叫我一定要交給你的。

北原武小心翼翼地打開小包袱看到一本存摺與一封信,存款是用他的名義開戶,存款金額高達數千萬日幣,信中母親寫道:

武兒,在這幾個兒女當中,我最擔憂的就是你,你從小就不喜歡唸書,又亂花錢,對朋友太慷慨,當你說要去東京打拼時,我就很擔心你會變成一個落魄的窮光蛋,因此我每月從不間斷地要你寄錢回家,一方面可以刺激你去賺更多的錢,另一方面也為了替你儲蓄;你給我的錢,我一毛都沒有花,你大哥一家把我養得好好的,你的錢就是你的錢,現在就拿去好好利用吧!


看完了信,北原武哭倒在地上,久久站不起來...

王永慶曾經說過一句話:你賺的一塊錢不是你的一塊錢,你存的一塊錢才是你的一塊錢。


現在的經濟景氣越來越差,全世界都進入了二低一高的時代:低成長、低利率、高通膨;不要小看你隨手花掉的小錢:一杯咖啡、一包香煙、一件衣服...,

省下它,就有可能改變你的一生,如果你身邊也有存不了錢的朋友,告訴他北原武的故事,你就有可能成為他這輩子的貴人!

養不起的未來 --不是收入太少,而是開銷太大!

locked your car doors when pumping petrol

Important - Happened in Penang

This is pretty scary, as is (its modus operandi is similar) with the case of Ms Canny Ong.

A friend stopped at a pay-at-the-pump gas station to get gas. When she had filled her gas tank after paying at the pump and about to leave, the attendant inside came over the speaker.

He told her that something happened with her card and that she needed to come inside to pay.

The lady was confused because the transaction was completed and approved.

She told him that and was getting ready to leave but the attendant once again urged her to come in to pay or else.....

She proceeded to go inside and started arguing with the attendant about his threat.

He told her to calm down and to listen carefully:

He told her that while she was pumping gas, he saw a guy had slipped into the back seat of her car and hid on the other side.

He had called the police.

She immediately became scared and looked out there in time to see her car door open and the guy slip out.

The story
The test for the new gang initiation thing which requires one to bring back a woman's body part.

One way they are doing this is crawling into girls/women's cars while the target is pumping gas or at the grocery store at night time. Then, they will cut off the victim's legs/ankles to disable them in order to kidnap them, and later kill and dismember them.

The other method is slipping into unattended cars and kidnapping the women for the same purpose.


Reminder

Please pass this on to other women, young and old alike.

Ladies, be extra careful when going into your parked car at night.

Do not park at lonely or secluded places at any time of the day for the sake of free parking!

If at all possible, don't drive alone at night!

This is real! Kidnapping! Murder! Dismemberment! These are all happening here in Malaysia!!!

The message

1. ALWAYS lock your car doors, even if you're gone for just a second.

2. Check underneath your car when approaching it for re-entry, and check in the back before getting in.

3. Always be aware of your surroundings and other individuals in your general vicinity, particularly at night!

Send this to many girls so your friend will not be the next one!

Kidney Cleanser - Barley

Good for Diabetics as well as colon cleansing.....


High in fibre, barley is also a kidney cleanser . Better yet, regular intake of it helps prevent heart disease .

BARLEY water was always a regular drink when we were still living at home. Whenever we had to go for a medical exam that included a urine test, my mum would make us drink barley water a day before it to make sure we got a positive result!

My mother was a wise woman. I later found out from an Australian naturopath that barley is known to be a kidney cleanser, and he happily downed glasses of it at a meal we had in a coffeeshop here.

Barley is good for your intestinal health too. Try to eat the barley grains you find in your drink or sweet broth with fu chook (beancurd skin) and ginkgo nuts.

It's high in fibre which feeds the friendly bacteria in the colon and helps speed up the transit of fecal matter in it. In this way it helps prevent haemorrhoids and colon cancer. The propionic acid and beta glucan from barley's insoluble fibre also help lower cholesterol and prevent the formation of gallstones.

Eating barley regularly is a preventive step against heart disease as, besides the fibre content, it is also high in niacin, a B vitamin good for lowering cholesterol.

Diabetics should eat more barley as the fibre will prevent blood sugar levels from rising too high. It also provides relief from constipation or diarrhoea for those suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Barley is rich in selenium which prevents cancer and relieves symptoms of asthma and arthritis. It is a good source of manganese, copper and phosphorous. Malt sugar comes from sprouted barley which, when fermented, is an ingredient in beer and other alcoholic beverages.

Barley, whose Latin name is Hordeum vulgare, has been cultivated for more than 10,000 years. Since ancient times, barley has been used for healing purposes and has been known to the Chinese, Egyptians, Greeks and Romans. Athletes in Greece and Rome in those days were known to eat barley bread to give them strength.

Besides the usual things we do with barley, I enjoy having it in a western soup. The larger pearl barley is used and I love the sticky bite of it.

Here's a recipe for barley soup:-

Barley soup with roasted garlic
--------------------------------------
1 cup pearl barley
5 cloves whole garlic, roasted
2 litres chicken stock, steeped from 1 chicken breasts simmered in 3 litres water
2 tbsps vegetable oil
2 large onions, diced
2 carrots, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
150g turkey ham, cut up
1 tsp ground white pepper
1 tsps sea salt or to taste
1 tbsp chopped parsley

Method
-----------
1. Wash barley and soak it in a bowl of water for three hours. Drain.

2. Heat oil in pan & fry onions. Add carrots & celery, then the barley & fry for 3 minutes.

3.. Add chicken stock, pepper & roasted garlic, simmer over low heat for at least 1 hour, or until barley is soft.

4. Add salt to taste and serve the soup garnished with chopped parsley.

Low Cholesterol Levels Increase Cancer Risk

Low Cholesterol Levels Increase Cancer Risk- American College of Cardiology

For years, I've been telling my patients that the medical establishment' s obsession with lowering cholesterol to prevent heart disease is causing more harm than good.

If your doctor continues to get you worried about your high cholesterol levels, here's a bit of news for you...

In fact, your high cholesterol may be protecting you from cancer.

Today, I'll explain the truth behind the myth of cholesterol, and show you how to achieve heart health naturally.

A new study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology revealed that driving down cholesterol levels actually increases the risk of cancer.

Researchers at the Tufts University School of Medicine found that among people taking "statin" drugs - like Lipitor and Zocor - there was a higher rate of cancer. Although the link between the drugs and cancer wasn't clear, there was no doubt that drastically low cholesterol levels correlated to cancer risk.

The big drug makers continue to sell the notion that the best way to fight heart disease is to lower LDL levels, the so-called "bad" cholesterol.

Yet 75 percent of people who suffer heart attacks have normal cholesterol levels.

It makes sense that low cholesterol levels are linked to cancer because cholesterol is one of your body's basic building blocks.. You need it to produce testosterone, to build and repair cell membranes, and to preserve your nerve cells through the formation of the protective "sheaths" that cover them.

Starving your body of this critical substance will lead to other health problems. We already know that extremely low cholesterol levels result in muscle weakness, fatigue, depression, decreased sex drive, and "brain fog."

This new research shows that there may be even more deadly consequences.

What really matters is not low "bad" cholesterol, but high levels of HDL, the so-called "good" cholesterol. As long as you have a high HDL count - 75 to 80, for example - it doesn't matter whether your total cholesterol is 150 or 350. A high HDL will always keep your risk of heart disease extremely low.

So why haven't you heard this already? It may be because there's no drug that effectively raises good cholesterol levels. You can only effectively do it naturally.

Consume natural fats. Avoid processed or fast foods containing "trans" fats - these man-made substances were never meant for consumption, and your body doesn't know what to do with them. They wind up clogging your arteries and putting you on the fast track to heart disease.

Instead, get your fat from free-range or grass-fed animals, eggs, nuts, and unprocessed vegetable oils. These are some of the healthiest foods you can eat.. (As with all foods, look for organic or minimally processed options whenever possible.)

The health benefit of these natural fats comes from their balance of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. Your body needs both but, as with cholesterol, they have to be in balance. Omega-3s are great for your heart. They've been shown to prevent irregular heartbeat, reduce clogging of the arteries, lower blood pressure, and decrease inflammation in body tissues.

If you stick to eating natural fats, you'll automatically get the right ratio of Omega-6 and Omega-3, which is about 2:1. As an added bonus, you'll automatically raise your "good" cholesterol levels and you'll reduce your risk of cancer.

險峰急流與你何干

險峰急流與你何干 wisdom 智慧
險峰急流與你何干

這是一處地勢險惡的峽谷。

湍急的水流奔騰而下,幾根光禿禿的鐵索橫亙在懸崖峭壁間,這就是過河的橋。

有三個人來到橋頭。

一個盲人,一個聾子,一個耳聰目明的健全人。

三個人一個接一個地抓住鐵索,凌空行進。

結果是:盲人、聾子過了橋,那個耳聰目明的人跌了下去,喪了命。

難道耳聰目明的人不如盲人、聾人嗎?
他的弱點恰恰源於耳聰目明。

盲人說:
我眼睛看不見,不知山高橋險,心平氣和地攀索;
聾人說:
我的耳朵聽不見,不聞腳下咆哮怒吼,恐懼相對減少了很多。

【智慧】

對於健全的人來說,心智的修煉恐怕要比本領的修煉更重要。

你過你的橋,險峰和急流又與你何干?只管注意你的腳,讓自己踏得穩固就夠了。

Dry Ice is made of CO2

dry ice
Good information. Please take note and it can happen to you.

Remember this especially when you buy lots of ice cream during Baskin Robbins 31st day offer!!!

They normally put dry ice in your ice cream pack if you buy a lot.

A friend bought four packs of ice cream and to prevent it from melting, the seller put the dry ice amongst the ice cream. My friend put it at the back seat (not the back of the car boot) and he started to drive with the windows closed and the aircon on (as what we all do).

Soon after that, he had difficulty breathing and it was getting worse by minutes. Luckily, he was in a traffic jam and when he almost fainted, beside him was an ambulance. He dragged himself to the ambulance and got the oxygen treatment. He was getting better on the way to the hospital.

The ambulance officer drove his car to the hospital and he had the same experience. However, before his condition worsen, he opened up the window and he could breathe easily. Only later, when my friend returned to office and told his colleagues about his story, they pointed out to him that the dry ice was the problem. WHY?

Dry ice is made of CO2 and when it "melts", it becomes CO2 gas straight away without leaving any wet mark (that is why it is called dry ice). CO2 is easier to be tied up in our blood and thus, when the dry ice sublimes into CO2 gas, it fills the car room with it along with the air con circulation and caused CO2 poisoning. So, don't put the dry ice inside your car if you are using aircon with fully closed windows. You must leave the windows open for such situation.

Hope this will help to prevent any fatality just from a small negligence like this. Imagine if you have your children inside, they might be the first victim.

Liver damage don't always sleep late

Liver damage

Take note...don't always sleep late!!!

Good rest and sound sleep is very important...

If u don't sleep well, the toxic in your body will accumulate..

Affecting your health and your mood...

The main causes of liver damage are:

1. Sleeping too late and waking up too late are the main cause.

2. Not urinating in the morning.

3. Too much eating.

4. Skipping breakfast.

5. Consuming too much medication.

6. Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food coloring, and artificial sweetener.

7. Consuming unhealthy cooking oil. As much as possible reduce cooking oil use when frying, which includes even the best cooking oils like olive oil. Do not consume fried foods when you are tired, except if the body is very fit.

8. Consuming overly done foods also add to the burden of liver. Veggies should be eaten raw or cooked 3-5 parts. Fried veggies should be finished in one sitting, do not store.


We just have to adopt a good daily lifestyle and eating habits. Maintaining good eating habits and time condition are very important for our body to absorb and get rid of unnecessary chemicals according to 'schedule.'


Because: Evening at 9 - 11pm : is the time for eliminating unnecessary/ toxic chemicals (de-toxification) from the antibody system (lymph nodes). This time duration should be spent by relaxing or listening to music. If during this time a housewife is still in an unrelaxed state such as washing the dishes or monitoring children doing their homework, this will have a negative impact on her health.

Evening at 11pm - 1am : The de-toxification process in the liver, and ideally should be done in a deep sleep state. Early morning 1 - 3am : de-toxification process in the gall, also ideally done in a deep sleep state.

Early morning 3 - 5am : de-toxification in the lungs. Therefore there will sometimes be a severe cough for cough sufferers during this time. Since the de-toxification process had reached the respiratory tract, there is no need to take cough medicine so as not to interfere with toxin removal process.

Morning 5 - 7am : de-toxification in the colon, you should empty your bowel.

Morning 7 - 9am : Absorption of nutrients in the small intestine, you should be having breakfast at this time. Breakfast should be earlier, before 6:30am, for those who are sick. Breakfast before 7:30am is very beneficial to those wanting to stay fit. Those who always skip breakfast, they should change their habits, and it is still better to eat breakfast late until 9 -10am rather than no meal at all. Sleeping so late and waking up too late will disrupt the process of removing unnecessary chemicals. Aside from that, midnight to 4am is the time when the bone marrow produces blood.

Therefore, have a good sleep and don't sleep late.

成功并不是要得到什么,而是要放弃什么

创新始于放弃,它不在于实施新措施,而在于放弃的是什么。
——管理大师彼得.德鲁克(Peter F .Drucker)

Title: 成功并不是要得到什么,而是要放弃什么

十四世纪法国经院哲学家布利丹曾经讲过一个哲学故事:

一头毛驴站在两堆数量、质量和与它的距离完全相等的干草之间。它虽然享有充分的选择自由,但由于两堆干草价值绝对相等,客观上无法分辨优劣,也就无法分清究竟选择哪一堆好。于是它始终站在原地不能举步,结果只好活活饿死。

人的痛苦往往不是因为没有选择,而是因为选择太多。能力越强的人选择的余地也就越大,可是没有放弃的能力,也就很难得到自己想要得到的。

卢卡诺·帕瓦罗蒂在师范院校毕业之际,痴迷音乐并有相当音乐素养的帕瓦罗蒂问父亲:“我是当教师呢,还是做歌唱家?”其父回答说:“如果你想同时坐在两把椅子上,你可能会从椅子中间掉下去。生活要求你只能选一把椅子坐上
去。”

帕瓦罗蒂选了一把椅子——做个歌唱家。经过 7年的努力与失败,帕瓦罗蒂才首次登台亮相。又过了 7年,他终于登上了大都会歌剧院的舞台,走上了世界歌坛巨星的宝座。

像这样的例子有很多,比如马克思年轻时曾想做一个诗人;英国著名诗人济慈,作家毛姆、中国的孙中山和鲁迅本来都是学医的,李嘉诚也曾立志学医;史怀特 30岁以前是个神学家、音乐家,他毅然辞去神学院教授的职务去研究医学,
而后将一生贡献给非洲的丛林,行医救人;圣徒彼得,也是从捕鱼人的行列中走出来,从而走向成功的……

但是他们根据自己的需要和社会的需要及时调整自己的人生方向,最终取得了举世瞩目的成就。他们的放弃是正确的,明智的。

人们难得有自知之明,即使是一些伟人,往往也会因为舍不得放弃而犯错。

巴尔扎克在初期创作失败后投笔从商,去当出版家。这个外行的出版家受尽欺骗,很快失败。紧接着,他又当一家印刷厂的老板,无论拼命挣扎终是失败。从此欠下了不少债,债务越滚越大。警察局下通缉令拘禁他,债权人也搅得他没有一刻安宁,他只好隐姓埋名躲了起来。

此时他终于醒悟,多年来自己游移不定,根本没有集中精力从事文学创作。

于是他夜以继日地认真写作,成为惊人的高产作家。然而直到他逝世前,他尚欠 21万法郎的巨额债务,这不能不说是一位天才的悲哀。

职业选择需要舍弃,舍弃所有的椅子,而只能选择其中的一把。

人在面临选择的时候是脆弱的,但目标只能确定一个,这样才会凝聚起人生的全部合力,将其攻下。

确定了目标选定了路,不管路有多崎岖,同行者怎样寥寥,你都要忍受孤独和寂寞将它走完。

尤其在诱人的岔路口,你必须不改初衷,有心无旁骛的坚定信念和超然气度。

人的自我定位如此,企业的自我定位也是如此。

诺基亚放弃了包括当时市场很好的电视在内的所有产品,独选择了当时市场不怎么看好的无线通讯产品。诺基亚成功了。我们有很多企业却像万能手一样什么行业都想涉足,只要哪行赚钱就干哪行,一个品牌承受着太多产品的拖累。像这样的企业太多了,一荣不能全荣,但一伤肯定是俱伤的。

舍得舍得,有舍才有得。

中国有句老话:有所不为才能有所为。

去除那些对你是负担的东西,停止做那些你已觉得无味的事情。只有放弃才能专注,才能全力以赴。

那天下班我回到住处,发现我的房东正在挖屋前的草地。我不相信自己的眼睛:“这些草你要挖掉吗?它们是那么漂亮,而你又花了这么多心血!”

“是的,问题就在这里。”他说,“每年春天我要为它施肥、透气,夏天又要浇水、剪割,秋天要再播种。这草地一年要花去我几百个小时,谁会用得着呢?”

现在,他原先的草地种上了一棵棵柿子树,秋天里挂满了一只只红彤彤的小灯笼,可爱极了。这柿子树不需要花什么精力来管理,使他可以空出身子干些他真正乐意干的事情。至此,我也放弃了集邮和标本制作的爱好,重拾起写作的“旧
爱”来。

有目的地放弃已拥有的,并且平静的等待失去,是成功必备的心态之一。

如果你清楚地知道,自己身上的恶习会阻碍自己拥有成功,你会不会放弃?

如果你知道,与别人斗嘴而生气,是你在帮对方一同气你,你会不会放弃生气的心情?

如果你知道,你爱的人移情别恋,你是放弃她还是放弃自己去拥有重新的选择?

如果你丢了钱,是否会失去一份开心的心情?

停止损失吧!在你做错事的时候,在有些东西影响你的时候,在你心情不好的时候,在你失败的时候,记得放弃法则。

当你决定要健康的时候,可能要放弃懒床,可能要放弃巧克力糖,可能要放弃美食……,成功,就是你必须决定你要放弃什么。

你必须问自己:“为了要达成目标,我必须要放弃哪些事情?为了使我更成功,必须停止哪些事情?”当你能够以这样的思考模式来转换你的思想,来改善你的行动方案时,你就会变成一个非常积极、非常有行动力的人。

当你每天做成功者每天做的事情,舍弃失败者常做的事情,你一定会成功。

鱼和熊掌不可兼得,而选择始于放弃。

选择改变未来

Title: 选择改变未来

有三个人要被关进监狱三年,监狱长允许他们每人提一个要求。

美国人爱抽雪茄,要了三箱雪茄。

法国人最浪漫,要一个美丽的女子相伴。

而犹太人说,他要一部与外界沟通的电话。

三年过后,第一个冲出来的是美国人,嘴里鼻孔里塞满了雪茄,大喊道: “给我火,给我火!”原来他忘了要火了。

接着出来的是法国人。只见他手里抱着一个小孩子,美丽女子手里牵着一个小孩子,肚子里还怀着第三个。

最后出来的是犹太人,他紧紧握住监狱长的手说:“这三年来我每天与外界联系,我的生意不但没有停顿,反而增长了
200%。为了表示感谢,请您接受我送的劳施莱斯!”

什么样的选择决定什么样的生活。今天的生活是由三年前我们的选择决定的,而今天我们的选取择将决定我们三年后的生活。

在这样的一个时代,我们越来越有条件实现自己的梦想,取得自己的成功。

成功已经不是一种机会,而是一种选择。

我们可以选择重复过去的行为,也可以选择每天给为自己改进一点。

我们可以选择学习什么、怎样学和何时学,也可以选择凭借自己的摸索和经验来创造未来。

我们可以选择怎样时间管理,可以选择怎样与人相处,可以选择怎样规划职业生涯。

我们可以选择痛苦地活还是快乐地活,我们选择坚持还是放弃,我们可以选择积极还是消极,可以选择进取还是停步不前。

我们可以选择努力改变别人,也可以选择不断改变自己;可以选择自信和自卑,可以选择勇敢和怯懦,可以选择热忱和冷漠。

我们可以选择负责还是推卸责任,可以选择在问题中寻找机会,还是在机会中寻找问题。可以选择主动和被动,可以选择奋进和安逸。

我们可以选择培养什么样的习惯,可以选择和什么样的人做朋友。

我们可以选择职业,可以选择行业,可以选择城市,更可以选择公司。

我们可以选择自己的兴趣爱好,可以选择保留兴趣爱好的时间。

我们更可以选择对生活的态度,对工作的态度,对社会的态度。

我们可以选择喜欢自己还是讨厌自己,可以选择为自己负责还是听天由命,可以选择尊重自己还是轻视自己。

当然,我们也可以选择结婚,也可以选择单身,可以选择结婚的时间和择偶条件,也可以选择怎样经营自己的家庭。

我们可以选择有目标有计划地过日子,也可以选择得过且过。

我们可以选择一味追求外在的事物,也可以同时享受生命的每一个过程。

我们可以选择充分发挥自身的资源,也可以选择为自己的不足自怨自艾;我们可以把注意力放在自己想要的,也可以放在自己不要的。

你可以选择找方法,也可以选择找借口。

我们可以选择欣赏、赞美、友爱、宽容、理解、鼓励,也可以选择嫉妒、嘲讽、憎恨、刻薄、自私、挖苦。

我们可以选择光明,也可以选择黑暗。我们可以选择欢乐,也可以选择悲伤。

我们可以选择用什么样的方式爱别人,用什么样的方式爱自己。

我们可以选择活在过去,活在将来还是活在当下。

成功是一种选择,失败也是一种选择。幸福是一种选择,痛苦也是一种选择。

不是我们别无选择,而是我们不知道自己的选择空间到底有多大。

不是我们不会选择,而是我们不会放弃。

我们一定要记住:我是我选择的我。

medicine cause drowsiness excitement

Coca-cola, Coke, Ajinomoto, Rape, murder

DO YOU KNOW ? Coke+Ajinomoto Can be Used To Rape Ladies

I received a news about the recent tactic used to spike girls' drink.


It is a cheap and widely used method.

This method was used in Canny Ong murder.

Rapist uses this method.

Coca-cola+ajinomoto/monosodium glutamate = a medicine which will cause drowsiness and excitement in the victim.

This mixture is poisonous if used too often on the victim.


Please send this to all your female friends, sisters, & your loved ones and ask them to beware.


DO NOT accept coca-cola or any other drinks from stranger / even if it is your friend that you are not very close with.

detained in Bangkok International Airport

A forwarded email that I received. It is hard to believe.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Beware when in the airport duty free shops in Thailand !!

Take precaution.
Dear All,

My Dept secretary informed on this. Her cousin was detained in Bangkok for stealing a box of cigarettes in a duty-free shop in Bangkok International Airport.

He had paid for chocolates and a carton of cigarettes. The cashier put a packet of smokes into his bag and he thought it was a free pack.

He was arrested for shop-lifting and the Thai Police extortion price was RM30,000 for his release.

He spent two nights in jail and paid RM50 for an air-cond cell, 200-300 baht for each visitor, and RM11,000 for his final release. The Police shared the money in front of his eyes. On top of that, he was charged in court and fined RM2,000 by the magistrate and handcuffed and escorted to his plane. His passport was stamped "Thief".

While there, his relatives requested help from the Malaysian Embassy and was told that they are helpless, as Malaysians are victimized similarly daily and letters and phone-calls to the Thai Authorities are ignored.

He shared a cell with a Singaporean the 1st night who paid RM60,000 for his release. The 2nd night was an Indian national who paid USD70,000.

Mind you this is not in a shag downtown Bangkok but in a duty free shop in Bangkok's Int'l Airport .

女人最想要什么?

Title: 女人最想要什么?

年轻的亚瑟王在一次与邻国的战争中战败被俘。

王妃看他英俊潇洒,不忍杀害他,于是提出一个条件,要求他在一年内找到让她满意的答案,就可以暂时把他释放。如果一年后没有找到让她满意的答案,亚瑟王要自愿回来领死。如果不答应这个条件,就要被终身囚禁。

她的问题是:“女人最想要什么?”

这个问题恐怕连最有知识的人也难以回答,何况年轻而又涉世未深的亚瑟王。

信誉是男人的第二生命,既然已经答应了别人的条件,说什么也要找出答案。

他回到自己的国家,做了几次调查,一而再地请教智者、法师、僧侣、母亲、姐妹甚至妓女,但还是没有找到一个令自己满意的答案。

其中有一个相士告诉他,可以去请教一个神秘的女巫,她一定有答案,但是她喜怒无常而且价格昂贵。

一直到最后一天,亚瑟王只好硬着头皮跟着随从找到女巫。

女巫似乎预知道他会来,很快地就开出了价钱:“我保证给你一个可以过关的答案,但条件是我要葛温娶我为妻。”

葛温是圆桌武士中最英俊潇洒的一个骑士,也是亚瑟王的最好朋友。

亚瑟王打量着眼前的女巫:面目狰狞、驼背如钟、牙齿稀落、口气恶臭,还不时发出淫荡的笑声。他心里想着绝不能卖友求生,所以当下就拒绝女巫准备明天动身去领死。

可是随从把当天的状况告诉了葛温。葛温有感于亚瑟王对朋友的义气,决定牺牲自己,就偷偷去见女巫并答应娶她。

女巫也言而有信,把答案告诉了亚瑟王:“女人最想要的是能主宰自己的一生。”

亚瑟王带着这个答案去见王妃,王妃欣然接受,释回了亚瑟王。

回国后葛温与女巫正式举行盛大的婚礼。亚瑟王看到朋友为了自己做了这么大的牺牲,简直痛不欲生。其他参加婚礼的圆桌武士和宾客,看到女巫令人作呕的仪态和举止,也愤慨不已。

葛温却保持着骑士的风范,把自己的新娘介绍给大家。到了洞房花烛夜,葛温还是依照习俗温柔地把女巫新娘抱进新房,女巫羞怯地把脸转过去。等到葛温把她放到床上,他赫然发现刚才的女巫突然变成了一个容光焕发、美丽温柔的少女。

葛温忙问怎么回事。“为了回报你的善良和君子风度,我愿意在这良辰美景回复我的本来面目。但是我只能半天以美女姿态出现,另外半天还是要变回令人作呕的女巫面貌。不过亲爱的夫君,你可以选择我到底白天和晚上以什么面貌出现,我一定照你的指示去做。”

可以想象到,葛温面临着两难的抉择。

如果太太晚上回复天仙美貌,当然他可以抱着美人享受人生最美妙的经验,但是白天却要面对周围朋友对恶妻的厌憎,但反过来就要终生忍受孤枕难眠的痛苦。

假如你是葛温,你的选择是什么?猜猜看葛温的选择究竟是什么?

“亲爱的太太,我觉得选择的结果对你的影响比对我的影响要大得多,你才有资格决定这件事。”葛温想了一想以坚定的语气回答。

“亲爱的先生,只有你真正了解女人最想要的是主宰自己的一生,所以我要一天二十四小时都回复我原来的美貌来报答你。”

女人要的是凡事能得到尊重。女人如此,所有的人都是如此。

尊重别人就要尊重别人的选择。

同样,自己的选择呢?

Car Insurance Claim Void

CAR INSURANCE CLAIM VOID... BEWARE!!!

Be careful, if you have the habit of sending your car for car wash or similar matter (car jockey etc) while in shopping complex...

A man handed the car keys to the car wash people and left the car park for his appointment.

After the appointment he went to collect his car, & the car wash people told him that his car had been collected. After a prolonged argument without any results, he had no choice, but to make a police report... and follow up by insurance claim..

Insurance company rejected his claim due to the reason that the car was not stolen, the point of contention was why did he hand over the car keys to someone unknown, and why did he not wait there till the car washing was finished...?

So, be careful next time. If you really need to send your car for car wash, stay there till it is done.

ALWAYS GET AN OFFICIAL RECEIPT LIKE YOU DO WHEN YOU SENT YOUR CAR FOR SERVICING AT HONDA, PROTON, TOYOTA ... DON'T PLAY A FOOL.

Please forward this message to all your friends to warn all of them...

Natural Cancer Killer

Natural Cancer Killer Graviola
This time let me pass some very useful and informative Health related subject...read it carefully and if you believe it is good ,pass to your friends.

Natural Cancer KILLER - 10,000 times stronger than Chemo and more.....

How many people died in vain while this billion-dollar drug maker concealed the secret of the miraculous Graviola tree?

If there ever was a single example that makes it dramatically clear why the existence of Health Sciences Institute is so vital to Americans like you, it's the incredible story behind the Graviola tree.

The truth is stunningly simple: Deep within the Amazon Rainforest grows a tree that could literally revolutionize what you, your doctor, and the rest of the world thinks about cancer treatment and chances of survival. The future has never looked more promising.

Research shows that with extracts from this miraculous tree it now may be possible to...
  • Attack cancer safely and effectively with an all-natural therapy that does not cause extreme nausea, weight loss and hair loss.
  • Protect your immune system and avoid deadly infections.
  • Feel stronger and healthier throughout the course of the treatment.
  • Boost your energy and improve your outlook on life.

The source of this information is just as stunning: It comes from one of America's largest drug manufacturers, the fruit of over 20 laboratory tests conducted since the 1970's! What those tests revealed was nothing short of mind numbing...


Extracts from the tree were shown to:
  • Effectively target and kill malignant cells in 12 types of cancer, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreatic cancer.
  • The tree compounds proved to be up to 10,000 times stronger in slowing the growth of cancer cells than Adriamycin, a commonly used chemotherapeutic drug!
  • What's more, unlike chemotherapy, the compound extracted from the Graviola tree selectively hunts down and kills only cancer cells. It does not harm healthy cells!

The amazing anti-cancer properties of the Graviola tree have been extensively researched--so why haven't you heard anything about it?

If Graviola extract is as half as promising as it appears to be--why doesn't every single oncologist at every major hospital insist on using it on all his or her patients?

The spine-chilling answer illustrates just how easily our health--and for many, our very lives(!)--are controlled by money and power.

Graviola--the plant that worked too well

One of America's biggest billion-dollar drug makers began a search for a cancer cure and their research centered on Graviola, a legendary healing tree from the Amazon Rainforest.

Various parts of the Graviola tree--including the bark, leaves, roots, fruit and fruit-seeds--have been used for centuries by medicine men and native Indians in South America to treat heart disease, asthma, liver problems and arthritis. Going on very little documented scientific evidence, the company poured money and resources into testing the tree's anti-cancerous properties--and were shocked by the results. Graviola proved itself to be a cancer-killing dynamo.

But that's where the Graviola story nearly ended.

Natural Cancer Killer Graviola
The company had one huge problem with the Graviola tree--it's completely natural, and so, under federal law, not patentable. There's no way to make serious profits from it.

It turns out the drug company invested nearly seven years trying to synthesize two of the Graviola tree's most powerful anti-cancer ingredients. If they could isolate and produce man-made clones of what makes the Graviola so potent, they'd be able to patent it and make their money back. Alas, they hit a brick wall. The original simply could not be replicated. There was no way the company could protect its profits--or even make back the millions it poured into research.

As the dream of huge profits evaporated, their testing on Graviola came to a screeching halt. Even worse, the company shelved the entire project and chose not to publish the findings of its research!

Luckily, however, there was one scientist from the Graviola research team whose conscience wouldn't let him see such atrocity committed. Risking his career, he contacted a company that's dedicated to harvesting medical plants from the Amazon Rainforest and blew the whistle.

Miracle unleashed

When researchers at the Health Sciences Institute were alerted to the news of Graviola, they began tracking the research done on the cancer-killing tree. Evidence of the astounding effectiveness of Graviola--and its shocking cover-up--came in fast and furious...

...The National Cancer Institute performed the first scientific research in 1976. The results showed that Graviola's "leaves and stems were found effective in attacking and destroying malignant cells.." Inexplicably, the results were published in an internal report and never released to the public...

...Since 1976, Graviola has proven to be an immensely potent cancer killer in 20 independent laboratory tests, yet no double-blind clinical trials--the typical benchmark mainstream doctors and journals use to judge a treatment's value--were ever initiated...

...A study published in the Journal of Natural Products, following a recent study conducted at Catholic University of South Korea stated that one chemical in Graviola was found to selectively kill colon cancer cells at "10,000 times the potency of (the commonly used chemotherapy drug) Adriamycin..."

...The most significant part of the Catholic University of South Korea report is that Graviola was shown to selectively target the cancer cells, leaving healthy cells untouched. Unlike chemotherapy, which indiscriminately targets all actively reproducing cells (such as stomach and hair cells), causing the often devastating side effects of nausea and hair loss in cancer patients.

...A study at Purdue University recently found that leaves from the Graviola tree killed cancer cells among six human cell lines and were especially effective against prostate, pancreatic and lung cancers...

Seven years of silence broken--it's finally here!

A limited supply of Graviola extract, grown and harvested by indigenous people in Brazil , is finally available in America .

Know Your Customers:

A disappointed salesman of Coca Cola returns from his Middle East assignment.

A friend asked, "Why weren't you successful with the Arabs?"

The salesman explained "When I got posted in the Middle East , I was very confident that I would make a good sales pitch as Cola is virtually unknown there. But, I had a problem I didn't know to speak Arabic. So, I planned to convey the message through three posters....

treatment for high blood cholesterol

The beauty of herbal treatment for High Blood cholesterol

I want to share a secret for treating high cholesterol.

Three weeks ago I went for a cholesterol check. To my surprise, it was above the normal range which should be less than 5.2 mmol/L. My reading obtained was 6.6.

I had been consuming a lot of red meat and lamb recently.

After consuming Mok Yee(木耳) for two weeks, l had my cholesterol checked again and found that my cholesterol level fell to 4.70 mmol/L.

My pharmacist said that even cholesterol medication will need 1- 3months to take effect. She was very surprised and said it is a miracle.

Review:

I immediately followed an advice of a friend who told me about Black fungus (木耳). He had four block heart arteries, over 90 percent blocked. His cardiologist advised him to go for bypass surgery, failing which he would suffer an imminent heart attack. His sinseh (chinese physician) friend advised him against surgery as the procedure would be messy, painful and expensive.

He followed the advise of his sinseh friend by consuming Mok Yee daily.

After consuming boiled Mok Yee juice for 40 days, he went for an angiogram.
His heart specialist was surprised and shocked that his arteries were all cleared of any blockage and it would not be necessary to see him for another 10 years!

My observation is that Mok Yee juice is not only effective in treating high blood
cholesterol but also helps to bring relief to joint paints, arthritis and poor
blood circulation.

The internet info. claims : that Mok yee reduces blood clot, preventing thrombosis, atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease, and cancer.Black Fungus contains abundant protein, ferric, calcium, vitamin, rough fiber, the content of protein is equal to meat.

Preparation :

1) Pick a hand full of Mok Yee and soak in water for 1-2 hours.
2) Wash Mok Yee and cut to pieces with scissors.
3) Pour five bowls of plain water into slow cooker (crock pot)
4) Put 2-3 slices of ginger, 8-10 red dates, 20 枸己(wolf berry) into crock pot.
5) Bring to boil for 8 hours. One and a half bowls of Mok Yee juice will remain after boiling overnight.

Consumption : You may consume for 10 to 14 days according to the severity of the problem. For those with low blood pressure consume less or only for alternate days.

Drink Mok Yee first thing in the morning with an 'empty stomach'. Consume at least one large bowl. Take breakfast 2 hours later.

Side effects - you may feel a little tired after 3-4 days.

Consume multivitamins and fresh fruits and vegetables daily.

Do not eat oily or fried foods during this period.

Observation : Dark and oily stool during the first two days.

Remarks : Cholesterol medication is chemical in nature and may harm the liver. Mok Yee is a plant and does not contain chemicals.

Take blood test for blood cholesterol before and after treatment.

live a long and happy life

At the age of 97 years and 4 months, Shigeaki Hinohara is one of the world's longest-serving physicians and educators.

Hinohara's magic touch is legendary: Since 1941 he has been healing patients at St. Luke's International Hospital in Tokyo and teaching at St. Luke's College of Nursing.

After World War II, he envisioned a world-class hospital and college springing from the ruins of Tokyo; thanks to his pioneering spirit and business savvy, the doctor turned these institutions into the nation's top medical facility and nursing school.

Today he serves as chairman of the board of trustees at both organizations. Always willing to try new things, he has published around 150 books since his 75th birthday, including one "Living Long, Living Good" that has sold more than 1.2 million copies.

As the founder of the New Elderly Movement, Hinohara encourages others to live a long and happy life, a quest in which no role model is better than the doctor himself.

Energy comes from feeling good, not from eating well or sleeping a lot. We all remember how as children, when we were having fun, we often forgot to eat or sleep. I believe that we can keep that attitude as adults, too. It's best not to tire the body with too many rules such as lunchtime and bedtime.

All people who live long regardless of nationality, race or gender share one thing in common: None are overweight...

For breakfast I drink coffee, a glass of milk and some orange juice with a tablespoon of olive oil in it. Olive oil is great for the arteries and keeps my skin healthy.

Lunch is milk and a few cookies, or nothing when I am too busy to eat. I never get hungry because I focus on my work..

Dinner is veggies, a bit of fish and rice, and, twice a week, 100 grams of lean meat..

Always plan ahead. My schedule book is already full until 2014, with lectures and my usual hospital work. In 2016 I'll have some fun, though: I plan to attend the Tokyo Olympics!

There is no need to ever retire, but if one must, it should be a lot later than 65. The current retirement age was set at 65 half a century ago, when the average life-expectancy in Japan was 68 years and only 125 Japanese were over 100 years old.

Today, Japanese women live to be around 86 and men 80, and we have 36,000 centenarians in our country. In 20 years we will have about 50,000 people over the age of 100...

Share what you know. I give 150 lectures a year, some for 100 elementary-school children, others for 4,500 business people. I usually speak for 60 to 90 minutes, standing, to stay strong.

When a doctor recommends you take a test or have some surgery, ask whether the doctor would suggest that his or her spouse or children go through such a procedure. Contrary to popular belief, doctors can't cure everyone. So why cause unnecessary pain with surgery I think music and animal therapy can help more than most doctors imagine.

To stay healthy, always take the stairs and carry your own stuff. I take two stairs at a time, to get my muscles moving.

My inspiration is Robert Browning's poem "Abt Vogler." My father used to read it to me. It encourages us to make big art, not small scribbles. It says to try to draw a circle so huge that there is no way we can finish it while we are alive. All we see is an arch; the rest is beyond our vision but it is there in the distance.

Pain is mysterious, and having fun is the best way to forget it. If a child has a toothache, and you start playing a game together, he or she immediately forgets the pain. Hospitals must cater to the basic need of patients: We all want to have fun. At St. Luke's we have music and animal therapies, and art classes.

Don't be crazy about amassing material things. Remember: You don't know when your number is up, and you can't take it with you to the next place.

Hospitals must be designed and prepared for major disasters, and they must accept every patient who appears at their doors. We designed St.... Luke's so we can operate anywhere: in the basement, in the corridors, in the chapel. Most people thought I was crazy to prepare for a catastrophe, but on March 20, 1995, I was unfortunately proven right when members of the Aum Shinrikyu religious cult launched a terrorist attack in the Tokyo subway. We accepted 740 victims and in two hours figured out that it was sarin gas that had hit them. Sadly we lost one person, but we saved 739 lives.

Science alone can't cure or help people. Science lumps us all together, but illness is individual. Each person is unique, and diseases are connected to their hearts. To know the illness and help people, we need liberal and visual arts, not just medical ones.

Life is filled with incidents. On March 31, 1970, when I was 59 years old, I boarded the Yodogo, a flight from Tokyo to Fukuoka. It was a beautiful sunny morning, and as Mount Fuji came into sight, the plane was hijacked by the Japanese Communist League-Red Army Faction. I spent the next four days handcuffed to my seat in 40-degree heat. As a doctor, I looked at it all as an experiment and was amazed at how the body slowed down in a crisis.

Find a role model and aim to achieve even more than they could ever do. My father went to the United States in 1900 to study at DukeUniversity in North Carolina. He was a pioneer and one of my heroes. Later I found a few more life guides, and when I am stuck, I ask myself how they would deal with the problem.

It's wonderful to live long. Until one is 60 years old, it is easy to work for one's family and to achieve one's goals. But in our later years, we should strive to contribute to society. Since the age of 65, I have worked as a volunteer. I still put in 18 hours seven days a week and love every minute of it.
