Artery Clog Can Attack Just Anyone - young or old

Yesterday I received a very bad news - one of my hubby's subordinate has just passed away. He was in his 30s - a healthy and health conscious young guy. No one knows what happened to him. He woke up with no heart beat.

None of us can accept this cruel reality. He was such a healthy man in his early 30s, not alcoholic nor smoker - he had stop smoking for quite sometimes. Why could this happened to him.

Post-mortem showed that he is died of clogged artery. But what exactly clogged artery is? Is it some kind of heart attack? I have done some research this morning regarding the clogged artery. It seems that the main culprit for clogged artery is LDL, not just ordinary LDL, but oxidized LDL, that stops up arteries and setting the stage for heart attacks.

After knowing the fact, I guess I shall start taking a serious look into our diet especially hubby's. Hubby has been overweight with excess fat. A bit worry about his cholesterol level, will get him to do a thorough medical checkup soon.

My dear dear hubby, can you please listen to me, eat less saturated fat and cholesterol. Cut down on fatty foods. I know you love seafood especially prawns and crabs - but please take them moderately. Think of us before you consume the bext piece of high-cholesterol and fattening stuff. Please don't compromise your health for that temporary satisfaction, it doesn't worth it. Imagine what would the world mean to us without you by the side. I am very scare after getting to know your subordinate's case. We human really do not know what will happen tomorrow, one being healthy can wake up the next day without breathing or heart beat. We can't predict what happen tomorrow, but at least we can try our best to prevent the unfortunate -- take care of our health. This is the very least we can do for our beloved family. Take care of our health and love your body.

My Bolognese Spaghetti with Tuna

I was thinking about cooking bolognese spaghetti yesterday but forgot to buy the minced beef. So, I searched around my kitchen to get some meaty for my spaghetti and there I got a can of tuna in water.

So, I use my creativity to create my own style of bolognese spaghetti with tuna.

Here's the ingredients that I used:

8 cloves of garlic (chopped)
1 medium onion (chopped)
1 can of 6 oz. tomato paste
3 tbs of Prego Original Pasta sauce
Half can of sliced button mushroom
1 can of tuna in water / brine
Angel hair pasta (or any other long pasta of your choice)
Extra virgin olive oil
Black pepper

1. Drain the tuna and keep the water for later use. Smash the tuna and mix it with 4 cloves of finely chopped garlic. Set aside.
2. Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions - approximately 3.5 minutes for Angel Hair pasta to cook 'al dente'. Thick pasta might take slightly longer dependent on the type of pasta used.
3. When pasta is cooked, drain it and rinse with cold water. Set aside.
4. Heat the frying pan with 3 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil on medium-low heat. Throw in the remaining 4 cloves of choppped garlic. When the garlic turns golden, put in the chopped onion and fry until it soften.
5. Now, add in the sliced button mushrooms and followd by the smashed tuna. Fry for 1 minute before adding the tomato paste and Prego pasta sauce.
6. Turn up the heat to medium and pour in the water from the canned tuna that we keep in the first step. Add in 6 oz. of plain water and stir well.
7. Heat through and mix for approximately 2 minutes. Add in salt to taste.
8. Now serve your pasta with this rich tuna tomato sauce, top with some black pepper (freshly ground black pepper is recommended though).
9. You can also add some Parmesan cheese and dried mixed herb for an extra kick!

Too bad that I forgot to take the picture of this Angel Hair Pasta with Tuna Bolognese sauce that I cooked last night. But trust me, it was damn good. My hubby gave it a thumb-up!

I still have some remaining of the cooked tuna tomato sauce which I refrigerated. I guess it must be consumed within the next 7 days. So, I will post the photo of this pasta the next time I cook it for my hubby, not going to be long though. :)

Stay tuned okay ?

Amazing God's Pharmacy

It's been said that God first separated the salt water from the fresh, made dry land, planted a garden, made animals and fish... all before making a human. He made and provided what we'd need before we were born. These are best & more powerful when eaten raw. We're such slow learners...

God left us a great clue as to what foods help which part of our body. Amazing!

A sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye... and YES, science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.

A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart has four chambers and is red. All of the research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopine and are indeed pure heart and blood food.

Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.

A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop more than three (3) dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.

Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.

Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and many more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don't have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.

Avocados, Eggplant and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female - they look just like these organs. Today's research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this? It takes exactly nine (9) months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).

Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of Sperm as well to overcome male sterility.

Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.

Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries

Oranges, Grapefruits, and other Citrus fruits look just like the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.

Onions look like the body's cells. Today's research shows onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells. The y even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes. A working companion, Garlic, also helps eliminate waste materials and dangerous free radicals from the body.

Best Divorce Reply

Dear Husband,

I'm writing you this letter to tell you that I'm leaving you forever.

I've been a good woman to you for seven years and I have nothing to show for it. These last two weeks have been hell. Your boss called to tell me that you quit your job today and that was the last straw..

Last week, you came home and didn't even notice that I had a new haircut, had cooked your favorite meal and even wore a brand new pair of silk panties. You ate in two minutes, and went straight to sleep after watching all of your shows.

You don't tell me you love me anymore; you don't want sex or anything that connects us as husband and wife. Either you're cheating on me or you don't love me anymore; whatever the case, I'm gone.

Your EX-wife

P.S. Don't try to find me. Your BROTHER and I are moving away to Spain together! Have a great life!

************ ********* ********* ********* ********* ********* ********* *********
Dear EX-wife,

Nothing has made my day more than receiving your letter.

It's true that you and I have been married for seven years, although a good woman is a far cry from what you've been. I watch my shows so much because they drown out your constant whining and griping. Too bad that doesn't work.

I DID notice when you got a hair cut last week, but the first thing that came to mind was 'You look just like a boy'! Since my mother raised me not to say anything if you can't say something nice, I didn't comment.

And when you cooked my favorite meal, you must have gotten me confused with my brother, because I stopped eating meat seven years ago.

About those new silk panties: I turned away from you because the £49.99 price tag was still on them, and I prayed that it was a coincidence that my brother had just borrowed fifty quid from me that morning.

After all of this, I still loved you and felt that we could work it out. So when I hit the lottery for ten million pounds, I quit my job and bought us two tickets to Jamaica .

But when I got home you were gone.

Everything happens for a reason, I guess.

I hope you have the fulfilling life you always wanted. My lawyer said that the letter you wrote ensures you won't get a penny from me. So take care.

Your EX-husband, Rich As Hell and Free!

P.S. I don't know if I ever told you this, but my brother Carl was born Caroline. I hope that's not a problem

Ma-Ling Luncheon Meat Banned in Singapore

Cancer-Causing Antibiotic found in popular Luncheon Pork

SINGAPORE - The agent of a popular mainland canned pork product has initiated a recall and suspended sales after tests showed a sample contained a cancer-causing antibiotic..
The Centre for Food Safety yesterday revealed this after laboratory tests showed a sample of Shanghai Ma Ling B2 340g pork luncheon meat (less sodium) was found to have traces of nitrofurans.

The batch number is B2 5 for the product, which carries a best-before date of December 26, 2009 . According to the sole agent, the canned pork was imported on only two occasions - last December and January this year. The scare spread when Singapore 's Agri -Food and Veterinary Authority detected carcinogenic traces in a consignment of canned pork from Ma Ling and Gulong food processing factories.

These brands have been banned from entering Singapore since August 2007 for containing nitrofurans( an antibiotic for pigs)

Yes, finally my best friend has arrived....

I did a second pregnancy test at a clinic last Friday. If you read my previous post, you should know that my period has delayed for about TWO weeks. I did a home pregnancy test on last Tuesday - it was negative.

My second pregnancy test was done in a clinic - it gave the same results too - NEGATIVE. In puzzled, I asked doctor how accurate is the urine test. "If POSITIVE - it is 100%, but if NEGATIVE - it is not always accurate". Pregnancy urine test is very dependent on the pregnancy hormone (hCG) and it varies from individual. The doctor has advised me to wait for few more days before conducting further pregnancy test, as sometimes it takes at least 14 days for pregnancy hormone to rise to a level that is detectable in urine. So, the third pregnancy test would be today.

I was thinking of getting a pregnancy test kit from pharmacy after work - but know what - IT has come. Yes, finally my period has come. So, I can now save that few bucks for the third pregnancy test.

Arrggh... I am so relieved now.

This is the first time that I am so welcoming my menses... HA HA...

Women's Right

I did not know about this and am sure lots of us will not know this and please pass on this info to whom you know ....

Just thought I'd share this with you.

There was this incident - a young girl was raped by a man posing as a plain clothes officer; he asked her to come to the police station when she and her male friend didn't have a driving license to show. He sent the boy off to get his license and asked the girl to accompany him to the police station. Took her instead to an isolated area where the horrendous crime was committed.

In fact, the law clearly states that between 6 pm and 6am , a woman has the right to REFUSE to go to the Police Station, even if an arrest warrant has been issued against her. It is a procedural issue that a woman can be arrested between 6pm and 6 am , ONLY if she is arrested by a woman officer and taken to an ALL WOMEN police station. And if she is arrested by a male officer, it has to be proven that a woman officer was on duty at the time of arrest.

It is good for us to know our rights. To what extent it comes of use remains to be seen in any situation. But as they say, knowledge is power.

Are You In For Spaghetti?

For several years, a man was having an affair with an Italian woman. One night, she confided in him that she was pregnant. Not wanting to ruin his reputation or his marriage, he paid her a large sum of money if she would go to Italy to secretly have the child. If she stayed in Italy to raise the child, he would also provide child support until the child turned 18..

She agreed, but asked how he would know when the baby was born. To keep it discrete, he told her to simply mail him a post card, and write 'Spaghetti' on the back. He would then arrange for the child support payments to begin.

One day, about 9 months later, he came home to his confused wife. 'Honey,' she said, 'You received a very strange post card today.' 'Oh, just give it to me and I'll explain it later,' he said. The wife obeyed and watched as her husband read the card, turned white, and fainted.

On the card was written: 'Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti. Three with meatballs, two without.'

Send extra sauce ...

Marriage: From Blah to Ooh-Lala!

When one is younger, he or she might have thought how wonderful it would be to get married. Of course, it is wonderful...but not all of the time. There will be times when marriage will seem like hard work and there will even be a time when leaving will look like a nice option.

To married couples out there, you must remember to look for ways to improve your relationship. Here are some tips that could make the marriage go from boring to infinitely fascinating.

1. Forgive.

Okay, there will always be disagreements in a relationship. But there is also something known as forgiveness that could immediately smooth the situation in an instant. Married couples must never harbor grudges.

2. Respect and honesty in the key.

If there is no respect and honesty in a marriage in the first place, why are you still together?

3. Remember the power of humor.

A married couple must take time to share jokes and other crazy antics to decrease tension. Remember, laughter is healing.

4. Communicate effectively.

If the wife is feeling upset by something the husband said she must be able to tell him that right away. Communication is very important in any relationship.

5. Decide together.

For things concerning finances, children's education and upbringing, delegation of household chores, the couple must decide together. One must not be superior over the other.

6. Don't forget the simple, small things.

For the husband, he must remember to compliment her and praise her for a job well done. For the wife, she must be attentive to her husband's needs. They must enjoy each other's company. Showing affection one for another is essential.

7. Stay in love.

It is easier said than done, but each has to remember that marriage is one hundred percent love. The two of you must enjoy every new discovery and every new day.

8. Stay intimate.

Yes, intimacy and sex must not waver as the time goes on. As long as the couple feels that they still have a strong attraction and affection for each other, the marriage would be fulfilled.

Marriage is wonderful and a bit complicated. But as long as the partners know that they have each other to hold on to, it should be a rewarding relationship. They would be there for each other, “for richer or poorer, in sickness and health, and til death do them part”.

My Period Has Not Come Yet...

Today is the third day after my first home pregnancy test. Still no sign of having my good friend any soon. Hubby suggested to do another pregnancy test today.

Strangely enough I don't experience any PMS nor pregnancy symptoms. What is happening to my body? Could it be the health supplements that I take - Milk Thistle & Dandelion from Bio-Life and Evening Primrose Oil from Efamol? But this was since August 2008, my period was on time in September.

Or could it be the QiQong? The 15-step QiQong that I started practising with my hubby in September? Still wondering what causes the irregular to my menstrual cycle.

Anyway, I will take my hubby's advice to do a second test. Will buy another brand of home pregnancy test kit this evening. Don't mistakenly think that we are too keen for the pregnancy, we just wanted to make sure that my body is functioning well. After all, it has been long since my last full medical checkup. I guess, it is high time for me to do a full medical checkup if again the second test shows negative.

*keep my fingers crossed*

Bahaya pinggan-mangkuk daripada MELAMINE

Kebanyakan pinggan plastic di Malaysia dibuat daripada MELAMINE yang mengandungi 'urea formaldehyde' dan sangat berbahaya kepada kesihatan. Urea Formaldehyde adalah sejenis bahan yang biasanya digunakan untuk membuat bekas barangan electric dan 'insulation' wayar electrik. Bahan ini amat berbahaya jika memasuki badan manusia. Ia boleh menyebabkan masalah sistem penghadaman, masalah pernafasan, batu karang, kegagalan buah pinggang, cancer pundi kencing dan kerosakan sistem pembiakan.

Kebanyakan restoran-restoran di Malaysia juga menggunakan pinggan jenis ini kerana ia tidak mudah pecah dan kelihatan cantik seperti pinggan ceramic. Mudah sahaja untuk mengenali pinggan mangkuk yang diperbuat daripada melamine. Pada kebiasaanya di bawah pinggan ini tertulis MELAMINE. Tetapi pinggan-pinggan melamine yang di buat di Thailand atau China selalunya tidak menulis perkataan ini di pinggan tersebut. Mangkuk pinggan melamine dari Thailand adalah jenis paling berbahaya disebabkan bahan kimia yang terdapat dalam pinggan mangkuk tersebut sangat mudah 'leech out' ke dalam makanan kita, terutamanya jika makanan itu panas. Oleh itu elakkan semua pinggan mangkuk plastik yg kelihatan berkilat seperti seramik, kerana ia kemungkinan besar adalah melamine.

Selain itu, bahan MELAMINE ini juga boleh bertindak-balas dengan bahan makanan dan membentuk racun yang lebih berbahaya, iaitu melamine cyanurate. Bahan ini akan membentuk crystal seperti kaca yang boleh merosakkan salur darah dan buah pinggang.

Baru-baru ini kecoh berita tentang pencemaran melamine di dalam susu kanak-kanak. Kira-kira 15 bayi telah mati dan beratus-ratus sakit buah pinggang di China disebabkan oleh bahan ini. Pada tahun 2007 juga, telah kecoh di Amerika Syarikat kerana bahan melamine yang mencemarkan makanan haiwan peliharaan telah membunuh beratus-ratus binatang peliharaan. Ini adalah bahan yang SAMA digunakan di dalam pembuatan pinggan melamine.

Pinggan-mangkuk melamine ini banyak dijual di pasaraya di Malaysia termasuk di TESCO, GIANT, MYDIN, CARREFOUR dan byk lagi. Untuk keselamatan, gunalah pinggan yg dibuat dari kaca atau seramik kerana bahan ini adalah sangat 'stable' dan tidak beracun.

Banyak kerajaan di Eropah, New Zealand, kerajaan Amerika Syarikat, dan juga kerajaan UAE telah mengharamkan semua mangkuk pinggan yang diperbuat daripada melamine.

This will Really Mess With Your Mind

3 men go to a motel. The man behind the desk said the room is $30, so each man paid $10 and went to the room.

A while later the man behind the desk realized the room was on special at only $25, so he sent the bell boy to return the $5.

On the way, the bell boy couldn't figure out how to split $5 evenly between 3 men, so he gave each man a $1 and kept the other $2 for himself.

This meant that the 3 men each paid $9 for the room, which is a total of $27, add the $2 that the bell boy kept = $29.


Can you figure out the answer? Mind to share with me..

Sex In The Dark

There was this couple that had been married for 20 years.

Every time they made love the husband always insisted on putting out the light.

Well, after 20 years the wife felt this was ridiculous.

She figured she would break him out of this crazy habit.

So one night, while they were in the middle of a wild screaming, romantic session, she turned on the lights.

She looked down...and saw her husband was holding a battery-operated pleasure device...a vibrator

Soft, wonderful and larger than a real one.

She went completely ballistic. ' You impotent bastard,' She screamed at him, 'How could you be lying to me all of these years? You better explain yourself !'

The husband looks her straight in the eyes and says calmly: 'I'll explain the toy... you explain the kids.'

Live, Laugh and Love.
