Onions

A friend of mine told me a story about when he was a kid he was in the hospital & nearly dying. His grandmother came to the hospital & told a family member to go buy her a large onion & a new pair of white cotton socks. She sliced the onion open then put a slice on the bottom of each of his feet & put the white cotton socks on him. In the morning when he awoke they removed the socks. The slices of onion were black & his fever was gone. The following story that someone sent to me might have some truth in it & we are going to try it this winter.
In 1919 when the flu killed 40 million people there was this Doctor that visited the many farmers to see if he could help them combat the flu. Many of the farmers and their family had contracted it and many died.
The doctor came upon this one farmer and to his surprise, everyone was very healthy. When the doctor asked what the farmer was doing that was different the wife replied that she had placed an unpeeled onion in a dish in the rooms of the home, (probably only two rooms back then). The doctor couldn't believe it and asked if he could have one of the onions and place it under the microscope. She gave him one and when he did this, he did find the flu virus in the onion. It obviously absorbed the bacteria, therefore, keeping the family healthy.
Now, I heard this story from my hairdresser in AZ. She said that several years ago many of her employees were coming down with the flu and so were many of her customers. The next year she placed several bowls with onions around in her shop. To her surprise, none of her staff got sick. It must work.. (And no, she is not in the onion business.)
The moral of the story is, buy some onions and place them in bowls around your home. If you work at a desk, place one or two in your office or under your desk or even on top somewhere. Try it and see what happens. We did it last year and we never got the flu.
For flu cure: cut both ends off an onion put one end on a fork and then place the forked end into an empty jar...placing the jar next to the sick patient at night. It said the onion would be black in the morning from the germs...sure enough it happened just like that...the onion was a mess and I began to feel better.
Onions and garlic placed around the room saved many from the black plague years ago. They have powerful antibacterial, antiseptic properties.
One more thing, never store cut onions and consume the next day.

Another reason why Chinese are successful...

YES! another reason why chinese are successful, they never miss any opportunity.
Why waste?

Chinese courier service.....! Forget about DHL, UPS or FEDX!!this beats them all!!

A family in the Southern Province of China, were puzzled when the coffin of thier dead grandmother arrived from the States.
It was sent by one of the daughters. The dead body was so tightyly squeezed inside the coffin.

When they opened the lid, they found a letter on top of the corpse which read as follows:"Dear Cousins, I am sending Ah-ma (grandma) body to you since it was her wish that she should be cremated in the compound of our ancestral home in Tung Shan. Sorry, I could not come along as all of my paid leaves are consumed.

You will find inside the coffin, under Ah-ma's body, 12 bottles of Yomeitsu tonic, 10 boxes of American Ginseng and 10 packets of Chinatown Chinese sausage Lap Cheong. Please divide these among all of you.

On Ah-ma's feet you will find a new pair of Nike Air shoes (size 10) for Ah boy. Also there are 2 pairs of shoes for Ah Mei's and Ah Lien's sons.. Hope the sizes are correct.. Ah-ma is wearing 6 Calvin Klein T-Shirts. The large size is for Ah Bak and the others are for my nephews. Just distribute them among yourselves. The 2 new Armani Jeans that Ah-ma is wearing are for 2nd uncle boys. The Rolex watch that Har Cheong wanted is on Ah ma's left wrist.

Aunty Pei Pei, Ah ma is wearing the Tiffany necklace, earrings and ring that you asked for. The 6 white Polo cotton socks that Ah ma is wearing are to be divided among my teenage cousins.



Let me know what else you need as Ah Kong (Grandpa) also not feeling well nowadays. I can send all required things when our Ah Kong goes back too...."

10 Health Benefits of Eggs

10 Health Benefits of Eggs

1. Eggs are great for the eyes. According to one study, an egg a day may prevent macular degeneraton due to the carotenoid content, specifically lutein and zeaxanthin. Both nutrients are more readily available to our bodies from eggs than from other sources.

2. In another study, researchers found that people who eat eggs every day lower their risk of developing cataracts, also because of the lutein and zeaxanthin in eggs.

3. One egg contains 6 grams of high-quality protein and all 9 essential amino acids

4. According to a study by the Harvard School of Public Health, there is no significant link between egg consumption and heart disease. In fact, according to one study, regular consumption of eggs may help prevent blood clots,stroke, and heart attacks..

5. They are a good source of choline. One egg yolk has about 300 micrograms of choline. Choline is an important nutrient that helps regulate the brain, nervous system, and cardiovascular system.

6. They contain the right kind of fat. One egg contains just 5 grams of fat and only 1.5 grams of that is saturated fat.

7. New research shows that, contrary to previous belief, moderate consumption of eggs does not have a negative impact on cholesterol. In fact, recent studies have shown that regular consumption of two eggs per day does not affect a person's lipid profile and may, in fact, improve it. Research suggests that it is saturated fat that raises cholesterol rather than dietary cholesterol.

8. Eggs are one of the only foods that contain naturally occurring vitamin D.

9. Eggs may prevent breast cancer. In one study, women who consumed at least 6 eggs per week lowered their risk of breast cancer by 44%.

10. Eggs promote healthy hair and nails because of their high sulphur content and wide array of vitamins and minerals. Many people find their hair growing faster after adding eggs to their diet, especially if they were previously deficient in foods containing sulphur or B12.

Always Check your PayBills

Do you compare the Meter reading on section 'DAHULU' (Red circle) with previous month?
In this case, the April bill on DAHULU section is 29128, SEMASA is 29380. After paid the bill, the problem come.... The May bill come, the DAHULU section by right should show 29380. BUT NOW, it still show 29128 same per last month.

If we don't compare with last month, frankly, I had HAPPILY paid for the bill and TNB had HAPPILY got the extra RM72 from me. At last, all the TNB shareholder got smart dividend from our hard earn money.

Due to this bad service....I plan to change service provider.
Opps...there is no alternate service provider. The alternate is buy your own generator, use candle...I guess no one will go for the alternative service provider....

So... please check your bill and compare it month by month.......I really compare the price always.....and notice the brilliant idea from TNB. I am not sure it is mistake? But I don't think is human error...

Now, better part is, this is computer error. If you don't discover this, then you pay for the EXTRA (this case, we got to pay extra RM72.80). If you notice the problem....easy, just refund to you, BUT do you know how time consuming and trouble to get the refund? Why their mistake is our cost? why there is no compensation on their mistake?

The BEST part, how many people know they are actually, happily OVER PAID?
When TNB officially want to increase the unit price....everybody jumping and compliant. How they going to get extra and no people complaint? This is an art....

This is the evolution of TNB billing system.....let the computer system do the mistake....and the mistake MUST FAVOURABLE to the company.
