rippling or bumpNails a sign

After visiting the NailSpa I googled and would like to share this ~~

It is said that nails can reveal clues to your overall health and though nail changes accompany many conditions, these changes are rarely the first sign. And many nail abnormalities are harmless ~~ such as not everyone with white nails has hepatitis. Very pale nails are sometimes linked to aging. But they can also be a sign of serious illness, such as:
· Anemia
· Congestive heart failure
· Diabetes
· Liver disease
· Malnutrition
One of the most common causes of yellow nails is a fungal infection. As the infection worsens, the nail bed may retract, and nails may thicken and crumble. In rare cases, yellow nails can indicate a more serious condition such as severe thyroid disease or psoriasis.. ~~ but dont panic if your nail is yellow after mengunyit ikan pulak, huhu
Nails with a bluish tint can mean the body isn’t getting enough oxygen. This could indicate an infection in the lungs, such as pneumonia
And if the nail surface is rippled or pitted, this may be an early sign of psoriasis or inflammatory arthritis. Psoriasis is a skin condition that starts in the nails 10%of the time.
If you’re concerned about the appearance of your nails, see a dermatologist and if you wannna a beautiful visit the nailSpa..

halwa the much forgotten

Caffeine !!! ...

study shows that students who drink some caffeine before an exam typically have higher scores than those who dont. This is because caffeine stimulates activity in the brain, which produces better focus and thinking ability. Dont overdo it though!


Heard of a sleeping disorder? which just came across and would like to share ~~ sleep apnea?, a common sleep disorder, a sleep disorder characterized by pauses in breathing during sleep . People with sleep apnea may breathe shallowly or have long pauses in their breathing throughout the night. Usually, people with sleep apnea do not wake up fully enough to realize this is happening — though others in the household may complain of their loud snoring, which is one sign of this condition.

During the day, people with sleep apnea often feel fatigued because of their chronically disrupted sleep and may fall asleep easily while watching television, while at work, or most dangerously, while driving.

While some people are affected by central sleep apnea, which is caused by a problem with the central nervous system, most people with sleep apnea have obstructive sleep apnea, which occurs when the airway is blocked by the tongue, tonsils, uvula, or excess fatty tissue in the throat. Most people with obstructive sleep apnea are overweight or obese.

If you suspect you might be suffering from sleep apnea, talk to your doctor about being tested for the condition. Sleep apnea not only puts you at greater risk of excessive fatigue and accidents, but it also has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease and other serious illnesses. There are very effective treatments available.

Luckily, one of the best ways to improve the symptoms of sleep apnea is losing excess weight. By eating a balanced diet, getting regular exercise, and making other healthy lifestyle changes, you are already taking important steps in the right direction!

IndulgingRelax and be pampered

Heard about NailSpa??? meself usually went to a nail salon and todayyyy I had my indulgence at a Nail Spa!!!!... A spa manicure and pedicure are more expensive than what you get at the local nail salon. The cost will vary depending on where you're getting the spa manicure and pedicure.It will be a longer service, with more steps -- an aromatic salt rub, hydrating mask, hot towel wrap, hot stone massage or paraffin dip -- that make the spa manicure last longer and feel more luxurious. You should try if you have not.


Studies have proven that listening to music strengthens the right hemisphere of the brain and actually changes the structure of it. Also, people who listen to music are shown to be more emotionally intelligent than those who dont.

Switzerland, a Land of Water

Switzerland is, quite simply, the water tower of Europe. The biggest rivers in Europe have their sources in Switzerland. Lakes, rivers, streams, waterfalls: there's plenty to enjoy both in and on the water. Discover Switzerland in all its beauty with whichever means of locomotion you prefer:

Spring is a beautiful time of year to explore the blooming countryside. In Ticino, flowers are in bloom as early as March. Hikers wanting to walk at high altitudes;

Summer lasts roughly from June to September and offers the most pleasant climate for outdoor pursuits (apart from exclusively winter sports). In fact, many adventure sports, such as canyoning, are only offered during this time. The peak period is July and August, when prices are high, accommodation often fully booked and the sights packed. You'll find better deals, and fewer people, in the shoulder seasons either side of summer:

Marhaban Ya Ramadhan

Selamat menunaikan Ibadah Puasa
bersama kita leburkan kekhilafan,

Semoga dengan puasa mempertemukan kita
dengan Keagungan Lailatul Qadar
dan kita semua menjadi pilihanNya
untuk dikabulkan do'a - do'a
dan kembali menjadi fitrah

"Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. It is the Islamic month of fasting. Fasting is meant to teach the Muslim patience, modesty and spirituality. Ramadan is a time for Muslims to fast kerana الله, During Ramadan, Muslims ask forgiveness for past sins, pray for guidance and help in refraining from everyday evils, and try to purify themselves through self-restraint and good deeds. As compared to the solar calendar, the dates of Ramadan vary, moving backwards about ten days each year as it is a moving holiday depending on the moon. Ramadan was the month in which the first verses of the Qur'an were said to be revealed to the Islamic Prophet Muhammad."

Yaa Allah! Jadikanlah puasaku sebagai puasa orang-orang yang benar-benar berpuasa. Dan ibadah malamku sebagai ibadah orang-orang yang benar-benar melakukan ibadah malam. Dan hapuskanlah dosaku … Wahai Tuhan ku sekalian alam!!
Dan ampunilah hambamu ini, Wahai Pengampun para pembuat dosa.


Smiling is the curve, which sets all things straight
Smile today ~~don't hesitate
If you keep smiling
It will not only hearten your frenz
But your enemies will wonder
What the h*** you've been up to
To make you so cheerful

~~ go on, don't you hesitate

Plannin a Vacation to places I have not been

europe!!!! probably nd this is indulging ...

Going on a vacation to a destination you have always wanted to visit is one of the best ways to pamper oneself.

Pickin a date in the future to give oneself enough time to save up for the vacation and enjoy all the planning can al also rejuvenate oneself. The anticipation of your upcoming trip will be almost as much fun as the trip itself.

Break the fast

The way we start the morning can have a big impact on the rest of our day. Eating a good breakfast is an essential part of a morning routine. “It’s important to break the fast,” nd when skipping breakfast our metabolism slows down and you have less energy throughout the day. Most important thing to remember is that everyone should eat something especially children who continuously growing and changing every day, and a nutritious breakfast provides the sugar, starch, protein, and fat - elements necessary for children to ensure a sustained release of energy and a delayed onset of hunger. Eating breakfast also improves the intake of fiber, vitamins, and minerals, especially iron and vitamin C.
Studies have shown that eating breakfast gives children the nutritional boost they need to get the learning process going - to stimulate learning - and there are other benefits as well. Children who ate breakfast (when compared to those who rarely ate breakfast):
•Learn better (and have improved memory)
•Achieve more (better math and reading scores - almost a whole letter grade higher;

The clock is running.

Treasure every moment that you have! And treasure it more because you share it with someone special, special enough to spend your time.

And remember that time waits for no one.

Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery.

Today is a gift that’s why it’s called the Present.

Enjoy you time

Al-Fatihah ~~ To a special couple who have travelled through life hand in hand and whose luv and commitment to each other is an inspiration to us all. Miss you Dad nd Mum

Indulgence - familyndMovie

The movie starts at 700 AD, with someone narrating to the viewers the past of Balthazar Blank. Balthazar Blake (Nicolas Cage) is a master sorcerer in modern-day Manhattan trying to defend the city from his arch-nemesis, Maxim Horvath (Alfred Molina). Balthazar can't do it alone, so he recruits Dave Stutler (Jay Baruchel), a seemingly average guy who demonstrates hidden potential, as his reluctant protégé. The sorcerer gives his unwilling accomplice a crash course in the art and science of magic, and together, these unlikely partners work to stop the forces of darkness. It'll take all the courage Dave can muster to survive his training, save the city and get the girl as he becomes The Sorcerer's Apprentice.

Skin is our body's biggest organ??? Which sure is, which I never thought of as an organ. Skin is very important as it covers and protects everything inside our body. Without skin, people's muscles, bones, and organs would be hanging out all over the place. Skin holds everything together. It also:

* protects our bodies
* helps keep our bodies at just the right temperature
* allows us to have the sense of touch

Normally, your skin is the first thing that has been noticed by others, when they meet you first time. In fact, your skin can also show the reality that you may not be receiving the proper nutrition. On the other hand, it also serves as the natural indicator of your health and weak skin conditions clearly show that you are not exactly at the peak of your health or suffering from some kind of ailment right now.

Sunshine vitamin aka VitD

Getting enough vitamin D? Probably not even if you spend a lot of time in the sun. Vitamin D is a group of fat-soluble secosteroids, the two major physiologically relevant forms of which are vitamin D2 and vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 or sunshine vitamin is produced in the skin of vertebrates after exposure to ultraviolet B light from the sun or artificial sources, and occurs naturally in a small range of foods. Foods that are natural sources of vitamin D are sardines, mackerel, herring, and salmon. Vitamin D – fortified foods, such as low-fat or fat-free milk, reduced-fat cheese, and some whole-grain cereals and studies show that spending 10 to 15 minutes in the sun while unprotected (that is, without sunscreen) two to three times a week can boost your vitamin D levels.

Studies have also found that a deficiency in vitamin D can hamper a person’s ability to lose weight effectively

To-do list

… recharge with gentle pore cleansing and exfoliation followed by a complete relaxing massage for your face and shoulders. Walk out with a healthy looking and revitalized skin.

.... As you continue your lifelong journey toward health and fitness, remember to keep putting yourself and your needs on your to-do list!
It's so easy to let the demands of family, housework, friends, and other commitments take precedence in your life. For example, time for working out may get replaced by the need to chauffeur the children to and from school, co-co, tuitions, mengaji quran . Or time for preparing healthy meals may get supplanted by malassss, huhu — leading to more last-minute trips to the drive-through.
While shortchanging ourself and our goals to meet the needs of others often seems like the right thing to do, it isn't a good long-term strategy. Eventually, without our own needs being met, you get depleted — and when you're empty, you can't fill up anyone else. Making yourself a priority isn't selfish — it's necessary to keep you from burning out and becoming ineffective.
One of the best ways to safeguard time for yourself is to learn to set limits. That might mean turning down other people's requests for your time. Saying no can be difficult at first — we all want to please the people we love- but it's a necessary skill. Rather than immediately saying yes, you could consider "let me think about or tengok la nanti."
Even in situations in which you don't feel you can say no, there may be room for compromise. You may not want to keep your kids from doing the activities they love, but that doesn't mean you have to be the one to drive them back and forth each day. CarPooling maybe???
AND SO …. Treat yourself to a SPA …

Walking allows you to clear your mind and thoughts. Not only is it good exercise for your body, walking gives your brain a chance to wander freely, clearing it of any troublesome thoughts and also the best exercise for weight loss. It is easy on the body, easily done by any age group, and burns a good amount of calories for the easy to moderate amount of effort put into it. The best part about walking is that you can walk with one or many friends, and enjoy beautiful scenery or benefit a cause.

Our skin is assaulted by everything from the sun to irritating laundry detergent and cigarette smoke and as such there’s noway we can avoid the sun unless with lots and lots of sunblock that for the sun, detergents .. the technoliges - washing machine and dishwashing can handle it and cigarette smoke?? our good ownself. As experts and demologist says, overall, the skin of a smoker isn’t as healthy and doesn’t heal as well as a nonsmoker’s skin. It also has a tendency to wrinkle easily. That’s because smoking cigarettes causes all of your blood vessels to constrict, or get more narrow, including the vessels that feed the outer layers of your skin. When you smoke, your skin gets less of the oxygen and nutrients it needs to stay healthy, and that leads to wrinkles. In addition, smoking causes elastic fibers in the skin to thicken, which means your skin won’t snap back into shape as well and you can experience sagging, The more you smoke, the more likely it is to happen and the more skin damage you’ll see. My2fil, ladies to look young and flawless less smokinnnn…

Eventhough of different beliefs it is ridiiiiculous... my2fil, bereaved petlovers !!... *confuse2*

IcedTea any1??

Iced tea may be the quintessential hotday drink, but a glass is more than just a delicious refreshment on a hot day.

Research has it that all black and green teas, iced or hot, contain antioxidants called polyphenols and suggests that polyphenols work to track down free radicals, which are unstable molecules that can damage cell structure. By combating free radicals, antioxidants may be able to prevent widespread cell damage and, therefore, decrease the risk of heart disease and cancer. Green tea gets more hype because it contains the highest concentration of polyphenols, but all teas, with the exception of herbal teas, contain some polyphenols. (Polyphenols are also found in dark chocolate and red wine.)

How to Prepare Iced Tea
To get the most from a glass of iced tea, brew it from loose leaves or a tea bag using boiling water. You can add sliced lemon to perk up the flavor or, even better, fiber-rich crushed raspberries for a fruity variety. If you like your iced tea sweet, add a sugar substitute. Decaffeinated tea is another option, as is unsweetened herbal iced tea (though, again, herbal teas don't provide the same health benefits from polyphenols as green or black tea).
