Blocked Hole

When you have block nose or flu, basically the food tat you eat will be tasteless, not a complete one since for us to perceive taste, we need both our taste bud and olfactory to work together to bring the real taste to life.

When you have airway filled with mucous, the feeling of something is in the throat and could not get it out even when cough very hard and loud really is annoying. Even when taking mucolytic and it is not working that fast, we only can do is hope for the best.

When you have constipation, it is as if like your anus is blocked by a hard stool, even when you try to defecate, the feeling of something still remaining in your butt hole really annoying. haha.

Today, basically I suffered from 2 of the 3 blocked hole. Really make my uneasy and moody.

Anyway, will be going to Taman Negara soon in a couple of hours and hopefully, the trip can relax my mind and hopefully reset my mindset and prepare myself for the clinical and rigorous 4th year of my pharmacy course.

Why Smartphones can be Dumbphones

I have been using smartphones for 6 years or 7 years already, starting with my Nokia 6630 to my present Nokia N73.

Nokia 6630

Nokia N73

Nokia 6630 was said to be the 1st phone to have 3G capability while my current one also possessed 3G capability. Yet, up till now, I seldom used my phone to surf the internet. The main reason is the expensive GPRS fee which will go sky rocket within 10 minutes of surfing only. With facebook, twitter and messenger, the GPRS fee can easily reach RM 10 or more per day. Really a lot for a student. Even with the present Digi Campus plan, max GPRS fee per day is RM 5 and for a student, consider expensive. If you surf everyday, it will end up being RM 150 per month. Doesnt it worth it to subscribe the latest DG Smart Plan with only RM 68 per month for unlimited internet usage.

(Frustrated whether to use or not to use GPRS)

Besides that, checking for email become a problem since it involve GPRS usage as well. Refreshing the webpage every time to check for update will also use GPRS and which ultimately involve $$. Being not able to check important mail is really frustrated when you know that there is one particular mail waiting to reply, especially the Nuffnang confirmation reply to participate in event. Being out whole day without internet access really add the pressure on you. Plus do not wanna check the email on your smartphone because it involve $$. Having to be not able to reply to Nuffnang within the nick of time will eventually meaning not able to participate in the event or movie screening really will make a person sad, myself included. Having to prepare the necessary blog post or think of a creative slogan and finally have the opportunity to participate in the event and win prizes, yet because of not able to reply the email really will disappoint me and I believe everyone as well.

(Sad being not able to reply on time)

GPS or global positioning system is one of the hottest demand in the market nowadays for a smartphone.

After I update my N73, i notice that there is a new application onboard, which is 'Map'. Within minutes, i try it out and found out that it is like a GPS. However, normal telco charges apply, meaning it will have GPRS charges. Again, being afraid of using so much money, I just leave the application aside, not wanting to use it anymore. Haha.

Being a person that will spend wisely and have strict budget guideline, I try to limit myself of a monthly usage of RM 30, with a daily usage of RM 1. Because of this, GPRS usage has not been taken into account and will not be using it. The RM 1 usage is for sms and call only. Haha.

Not able to fully utilise the 3G capability of my smartphone really make me sad and frust. 

Last but not least, if you used smartphone once, you will never ever change back to the normal phone. Once a smartphone user will always be a smartphone user. Believe me.

Huai Bin for the Adidas Ole KO Challenge!

The Season 1 & Season 2 bloggers will be playing futsal one-one-one at the Adidas Ole KO road show at Centre COurt, Mid Valey Megamall, Friday May 21, 7.30pm! Which blogger will win?

I think every single of the season 1 and season 2 bloggers will have their change of winning. For me, I think Huai Bin has a chance of winning over the rest of the bloggers. This is because, one has to be able to kick a ball and energetic as well. Accuracy is important as well to be able to shoot the ball into the goal.

Since Adidas Ole KO Challenge is one of a kind challenge whereby the match will be one on one in a spherical steel cage. The objective of the challenge is to score as many points as possible within a set time frame by kicking the ball through their opponent's legs. Due to this endurance and skill is needed and not for the fainted heart. 

This challenge required the person to be brave and strong and swift enough to score as many point as possible. Huai Bin is a suitable candidate for this challenge since he is brave in doing all those extraordinary stuffs. Coordination of body and legs are important in controlling the ball and shooting the ball through their opponent's legs since the opponents will avoid the ball as well. So, swift attack by the attacker is needed to score a point for themselves. In my point of view, Huai Bin definitely has these quality in scoring many many points and thus win the challenge. I believe that you ca do it and win the challenge. All the best.

Here is a dose of project alpha season 2.

My Message to AIDSAware

Picture say a million words.

Some of the people in the society do not know what is AIDS or even HIV. HIV is Human immunodeficiency virus which cause acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). HIV can be within our body if we are exposed to them will remain hidden until our body immune system has become weak, then the HIV will become dormant and start to cause various sickness.

Awareness is important as the spread of HIV or AIDS can be stopped once we know how does this disease spread. HIV does not take account who they attack as whoever you are, you are prone to become the carrier of HIV if unaware of it. Once the HIV resurface, the 'shelf-life' will be much shorter. AIDS does not cause death but secondary infection caused it. This is due to the fact that the HIV attack our body immune system and cause the destruction of our immune system. AIDS can be prevented by some simple prevention measurements.

Prevention of AIDS is really is as easy as ABC. WHY? AIDS can be spread by the body fluid of the carrier such as blood, semen and others. One of the most important vector is the blood. If the person is a HIV carrier, the virus will be definitely in the blood. Thus, in any way possible, do avoid contact with blood of unknown origin. Who knows what there are inside a droplet of blood. A since droplet of blood can contain millions of virus, readily to invade the other person once in contact with it.

Besides that, since sex is among one of the means of spreading HIV, playing safe sex is important, which by using a condom, in either male or female. Nowadays, not only males can wear condom, even the females can also wear condom since there are available in the market.

Next, annual health screening is important to check whether you are a HIV carrier or not or even a AIDS patient if you have multiple sex partners. Family planning is also important as health screening before marriage to ensure the other partner do not have AIDS. Even if he or she have it, avoidance is not recommended since prevention can be done. 

Last but not least, our children are innocent. Do not involve them in AIDS. Children are the future of the world, the pillar of the society. Beware of AIDS in the society. Prevention is always better than cure. In AIDS perspective, there is no cure currently available in the market. Beware.
