愛一個人不是給她你要的，因為你要的她不一定要啊 ! 而是要給她「她要的」，這樣才是真正愛她。
我就說「炒蛋事件」好了 ! 我跟我老婆結婚才三個月的時候 ...就發現我不會溝通了!
有一天，我心血來潮突然就跟她 說：「我今晚作一道世界名菜給你吃! 」 平常晚上，我家都是吃三菜一湯。 她一做完兩菜一湯就離開廚房， 說要拭目看我作出什麼世界名菜來給她吃，为了讓她有個驚喜我就拿起三個蛋，打散，唰 ~ 下鍋，加蔥花... ，再加醬油 ~這是最重要的 !!
小時候不是都吃媽媽的醬油炒蛋嗎 ? 這可是含有濃濃的母愛的香味呢!
好啦!? 起鍋~世界名菜--- 「醬油炒蛋」上桌 !
她走出來，一看，「這是什麼 ? 」「蛋啊 ! 炒蛋啊 ~ 」
這女人怎麼這麼硬啊?! 醬油炒蛋就不是蛋嗎？分別是少見多怪嘛! 黑蛋當然也是蛋啊~
「不吃就不吃!」 她筷子一摔，還真的就不吃了。 碰 !還甩房門。
自此而後，只要我每次炒蛋，內心、腦袋就開始掙扎...「要加鹽巴 ?還是加醬油 ?我應該要讓她才對... 不對? 」
每次上 桌的醬油炒蛋，她就當作沒看到那道菜。 我們就這樣過了五年。 很不可思議吧！
我們跟小朋友玩不是都會讓他嗎 ! 因為他年紀小，不懂事嘛，所以我讓她! 而有時老婆不懂事、幼稚的時候，我又何必認真呢！
就沒聽過黑人會變白人的，我們家的黑蛋竟然也會變白蛋呀!」 我這時啥也沒說，只嘿嘿乾笑了兩聲。 可是，你知道嗎？過兩天，換我在桌上看見黑蛋了。她炒的。
而是要給她「她要的」 ! 切記。 要把對方的需要當作你的責任，這樣才是真正愛她。
我告訴朋友 --- 尊重，是最重要的 !
如果他 (她 )會尊重你，意即什麼都好，都是能商量的。
假設你還能活60 年好了 !
爸媽兄弟姊妹都可以，是真正愛過的喔 ! 那種只愛三個禮拜的不算是真愛。 能寫到超過是最好，不到10 個也沒關係。
我現在想，我就好像寫不來10 個呢！ 我是不是真正愛我方爸媽都不太確定。因為你真正愛一個人會一年只見他三次面嗎? 不會吧！一定是巴不得 每天都能看到他 ( 她 )的是吧！
如果你真能寫到 10 個那你可真的很幸運很幸福了 !!
還有一個小故事! 大意是 說一個即將升職的男人，
因為她老婆突然罹患老年癡呆症，朋友們都建議他把老婆送到醫院治療兼療養。 他考慮了一星期後遞出了辭呈。 朋友們都很驚訝、錯愕，紛紛詢問他為什麼要放棄升遷的機會呢? 他的人生就將要達到最高峰了啊！
自由自在的散播開來 ....(.^_^.) 」

Health News - About Sugar Cane Drinks
A friend whose father works for the government health inspection passed on his info. Their job is to inspect all hawkers, their cooked food, their store hygiene, etc. They found sugar cane juice has the highest content of bacteria among all food. In fact, it has exceeded the set limit.
Hence, these guys had to find out why. They went round all sugar cane stores and watched the way the hawkers handled their sugar cane, wash their glasses, their entire procedure. But they couldn't find the problem.
One day, they stayed till closing time and discovered some shocking facts! Whenever, the hawkers closed their stores, they would wash the floor with detergent.. As we know, the remaining sugar canes will be placed at the back of the store, vertically standing and as sugar canes are very porous, they tend to absorb whatever liquid around them. Besides the soapy water, the dirt on hawkers' boots, cats' urine, etc, will all be absorbed. Now, whenever I eat at a hawker centre, I would warn all my friends about this and of course I stopped drinking my favorite sugar cane juice.
A friend, who loved sugar cane juice, was pregnant. She was always drinking sugar cane juice. Anyway, one day she miscarried and the fetus was already like 6 or 7 months old, I think. When the doctors did an autopsy to find out why all of a sudden the fetus had died inside her, they found traces of some chemical substance, which was found in cat urine. Large traces of it.
While it would not be able to harm adults, it was extremely toxic to babies, what more a fetus?
So they tried to determine how this cat urine thing could have ended up in the fetus. This meant that it had to be digested by the mother, right? And the only logical conclusion they could come up with was that since these sugar cane juice stall holders just leave the canes lying around on the wet and dirty floor, it would not be impossible to think that stray cats could have peed on those sugar canes or near those sugar canes. So think carefully the next time you order that favorite sugar cane juice!
Please pass this on to everyone you know in S'pore & M'sia. Let's take action to make this world a better & safer place for all of us & the generations to come.
Supercharge Your Brain
Almond is believed to improve memory. If a combination of almond oil and milk is taken together before going to bed or after getting up at morning, it strengthens our memory power. Almond milk is prepared by crushing the almonds without the outer cover and adding water and sugar to it.
Drink Apple Juice
Research from the University of Massachusetts Lowell (UML) indicates that apple juice increases the production of the essential neurotransmitter acetylcholine in the brain, resulting in an increased memory power.
Research indicates that the long-term memory is consolidated during sleep by replaying the images of the experiences of the day. These repeated playbacks program the to store these images and other related information.
Enjoy simple Pleasures
Stress drains our brainpower. A stress-ridden mind consumes much of our memory resources to leave us with a feeble mind. Make a habit to engage yourself in few simple pleasures everyday to dissolve stress from your mind. Some of these simple pleasures are good for your mind, body and soul.
-Enjoy music you love
-Play with your children
-Run few miles a day, bike or swim
-Start a blog
-Take a yoga class or Total Wellness routine
Exercise your mind
Just as physical exercise is essential for a strong body, is equally essential for a sharp and agile mind. Have you noticed that children have far superior brainpower than an adult does? Children have playful minds. A playful mind exhibits superior memory power. Engage in some of the activities that require your mind to remain active and playful.
-Play scrabble or crossword puzzle
-Interact with others
-Start a new hobby such as blogging, reading, pai nting, bird watching
-Learn new skill or a foreign language
Practice Yoga or Meditation
or Meditation relives stress. Stress is a known memory buster. With less stress, lower blood pressure, slower respiration, slower metabolism, and released muscle tension follows. All of these factors contribute significantly towards increases in our brainpower.
Reduce Sugar intake
Sugar is a non-food. It’s a form of carbohydrate that offers illusionary energy, only to cause a downhill slump once the initial burst has been worn off. Excess intake of sugar results in neurotic symptoms. Excess sugar is known to cause claustrophobia, and other neurotic disorders. Eat food without adding sugar. Stay away from sweet drinks or excess consumption of caffeine with sugar.
The whole wheat germs contain lecithin. Lecithin helps ease the problem of the hardening of the arteries, which often impairs brain functioning.
Eat a light meal at night
A heavy meal at night causes tossing and turning and a prolonged emotional stress while at sleep. It’s wise to eat heavy meal during the day when our body is in motion to consume the heavy in-take. Eating a light meal with some fruits allows us to sleep well. A good night sleep strengthens our brainpower.
Greeks mastered the principle of imagination and association to memorize everything. This technique requires one to develop a vivid and colorful imagination that can be linked to a known object. If you involve all your senses - touching, feeling, smelling, hearing and seeing in the imagination process, you can remember greater details of the event.
Control your temper
Bleached food, excess of starch or excess of can lead to nerve grating effect. This results in a violent and some time depressive behavior. Eat fresh vegetables. Drink lots of water and meditate or practice yoga to relieve these toxic emotions of temper and stressful mood swings.
Take Vitamin B-complex
Vitamin B-complex strengthens memory power. Eat food and vegetables high in Vitamin B-complex. Stay away from the starch food or white bread, which depletes the Vitamin B-complex necessary for a healthy mind.

您可能會發現不久的將來 ........ 香蕉會缺貨 !!香蕉愈成熟即表皮上黑斑愈多，它的免疫活性也就愈高。
日本人愛吃香蕉不是沒原因的， 大、小朋友們都喜歡吃香蕉 ~ 真方便，每日五蔬果，疾病遠離我喔........
根據日本科學家的研究發現，香蕉中具有抗癌作用的物質 TNF 。
而且，香蕉愈成熟其抗癌效果愈高。日本東京大學教授山崎正利利用動物試驗，比較了香蕉、葡萄、蘋果、西瓜、菠蘿、梨子、柿子等多種水果的免疫活性，結果證實其中以香蕉的效果最好，能夠增加白血球，改善免疫系統的功能，還會產生攻擊異常細胞的物質 TNF 。
山崎教授的試驗也發現，香蕉愈成熟即表皮上黑斑愈多，它的免疫活性也就愈高。所以從現在開始要吃熟一點的香蕉唷！ 香蕉不會使白血球盲目增長只有在數量少的時候才會大幅度增加。 因此，專家們研究認為，香蕉具有的免疫激活作用比較溫和 , 在人體狀態健康時並不會使免疫力異常升高 . 但對病人、老人和抵抗力差的體弱者則很有效果。
山崎教授指出，在黃色表皮上出現黑色斑點的香蕉，其增加白血球的能力 .......... 要比表皮發青綠的香蕉強８倍。
~~ 為了自己的健康，請詳細閱讀以下的說明 ~~
以下的內容摘錄自 '疾病的形成與防範'一書，作者為洪山本 博士
在醫院中輸血， 需將從冰箱拿出的血加以溫熱才可輸入人體 ，曾有護士為了急救病人節省時間，使用微波爐加溫血液，一輸入體後病人立即死亡，以後醫院中嚴格規定，絕不可用微波爐去溫熱血液。
專門調給嬰兒服用的奶粉， 盒上說明文字，明白寫出絕不可用微波爐去煮熱 ，因為它會破壞所有的營養。
(a) 肉類微波後 會產生一種致癌物d-NitroSodienthanolanines。
(c) 蔬菜微波後，會將植物生物鹼(Plant Alkaloids)轉化成致癌物。
(01) 它破壞腦組織。 腦的傳播是靠磁波，微波爐處理過的食物，如長期食用，會中和腦磁波，使腦退化，磁波短路，此為長期副作用。& nbsp;
I THOUGHT IT WAS A GOOD IDEA TO SAVE SOME UNWANTED RESOURCE WHICH MOST PEOPLE WOULD THROW AWAY WITHOUT ANY 2ND THOUGHT AND HERE I AM SHARING WITH YOU THE USEFULNESS OF THIS UNWANTED RESOURCE.
HERE IS THE TYPE OF ALUMINIUM COATED PLASTIC BAG FROM QUAKER. YOU CAN USE ANY OTHER TYPE AS WELL AS LONG AS IT HAS THE SAME TYPE OF MATERIAL.
YOU CAN PUT PLENTY OF FRUITS AND/OR VEGETABLES IN IT..
LOOK.....AFTER 1 WEEK.....THE VEGETABLES ARE STILL FRESH! AMAZING, ISN'T IT??? NO DEHYDRATION AT ALL.
LOOK AT THE OCRAS. THEY ARE STILL VERY, VERY FRESH WITHOUT ANY DEHYDRATION AT ALL.
BUT DON'T FOLD OR SEAL THE OPENING OF THE BAG. JUST LEAVE THE BAG OPEN AND IT WILL DO THE MAGIC WORK FOR YOU ALREADY. .....TRY IT OUT.....
YOU WOULD SURE LIKE IT VERY MUCH TOO.
INSTEAD OF THROWING THESE USEFUL THINGS AWAY, RE-USE IT AGAIN AND YOU WILL BE INHERENTLY JOINING THE GROUP OF "SAVING THE MOTHER-EARTH" CAMPAIGN TOO.
NEVER.. NEVER.. NEVER use a medical card!
1. In the emergency room, you will be asked to register and make a 'Deposit' BEFORE the patient is TREATED!
2. When you show the medical card....the doctor MUST complete the claim form and fax to the insurance company BEFORE they can treat the patient. The hospital MUST wait until the insurance company Confirms coverage & limit of policy.
3. ALL these procedures may take 1-2 HOURS!! By this time the patient may have lapsed into a coma!!
4. Use your credit card or Cash FIRST.
AFTER the patient has been treated & attended by the doctor, then show the admission counter nurse the medical card. She will then liaise with the insurance company directly for the approvals. She will tear the earlier credit card deposit once the insurance company has approved.
5. By now the patient would have been wheeled into the room to rest or to the surgery room for immediate surgery.
Sincerely we pray no one has to go through such an ordeal.

A story of our body anatomy! Interesting article and it is worth reading!
There's no denying the ticking of a woman's biological clock - but men are not immune, either. Here, with the help of leading clinicians, Angela Epstein identifies the ages when different parts of the body start to lose their battle with time.
As we get older, the number of nerve cells - or neurons - in the brain decrease. We start with around 100 billion, but in our 20s this number starts to decline.
By 40, we could be losing up to 10,000 per day, affecting memory, co-ordination and brain function. In fact, while the neurons are important, it's actually the deterioration of the gaps between the brain cells that has the biggest impact, says Dr Wojtek Rakowicz, a consultant neurologist at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust in London .
We all assume grey hair and wrinkles are the first signs of ageing, but some parts of your body are worn out long before you look old.
These tiny gaps between the end of one brain nerve cell and another are called synapses. Their job is to ensure the flow of information from one cell to another, and as we age we make fewer.
• LUNGS Start ageing at 20
Lung capacity slowly starts to decrease from the age of 20.
By the age of 40, some people are already experiencing breathlessness. This is partly because the muscles and the rib cage which control breathing stiffen up. It's then harder to work the lungs and also means some air remains in the lungs after breathing out - causing breathlessness.
Aged 30, the average man can inhale two pints of air in one breath. By 70, it's down to one.
• MUSCLES Start ageing at 30
Muscle is constantly being built up and broken down, a process which is well balanced in young adults.
However, by the time we're 30, breakdown is greater than buildup, explains Professor Robert Moots.
Once adults reach 40, they start to lose between 0.5 and 2 per cent of their muscle each year. Regular exercise can help prevent this..
• HEARING Starts ageing mid-50s
More than half of people over 60 lose hearing because of their age, according to the Royal National Institute for the Deaf.
The condition, known as presbycusis, happens due to a loss of 'hair cells' - tiny sensory cells in the inner ear which pick up sound vibrations and send them to the brain.
• SKIN Starts ageing mid-20s
The skin starts to age naturally in your mid-20s. According to Dr Andrew Wright, a consultant dermatologist with
Bradford NHS Trust, as we get older production of collagen - the protein which acts as scaffolding to the skin - slows, and elastin, the substance that enables skin to snap back into place, has less spring and can even break.
Dead skin cells don't shed as quickly and turnover of new skin cells may decrease slightly. This causes fine wrinkles and thin, transparent skin - even if the first signs may not appear until our mid-30s (unless accelerated by smoking or sun damage).
• BREASTS start ageing at 35
BY their mid-30s, women's breasts start losing tissue and fat, reducing size and fullness. Sagging starts properly at 40 and the areola (the area surrounding the nipple) can shrink considerably. Although breast cancer risk increases with age, it's not related to physical changes in the breast.
More likely, says Gareth Evans, breast cancer specialist at St Mary's Hospital, Manchester , our cells become damaged with age - as a result, the genes which control cell growth can mutate, causing cancer.
• FERTILITY starts ageing at 35
Female fertility begins to decline after 35, as the number and quality of eggs in the ovaries start to fall.
The lining of the womb may become thinner, making it less likely for a fertilised egg to take, and also creating an environment hostile to sperm.
Male fertility also starts to drop around this age. Men who wait until their 40s before starting a family have a greater chance of their partner having a miscarriage, because of the poorer quality of their sperm.
French doctors have found that the quality of sperm starts to deteriorate by 35, so that by the time a man is 45, a third of pregnancies end in miscarriage.
• HAIR Starts ageing at 30
Male hair loss usually begins in the 30s. Hair is made in tiny pouches just under the skin's surface, known as follices.
A hair normally grows from each follicle for about three years, is then shed, and a new hair grows.
However, with male-pattern baldness, changes in levels of testosterone from their early-30s affect this cycle, causing the hair follicles to shrink.
Each new hair is thinner than the previous one.. Eventually, all that remains is a much smaller hair follicle and a thin stump of hair that does not grow out to the skin surface.
Most people will have some grey hair by the age of 35. When we are young, our hair is coloured by the pigments produced by cells in the hair follicle known as melanocytes.
As we grow older, melanocytes become less active, so less pigment is produced, the colour fades, and grey hairs grow instead.
• BONES Start ageing at 35
'Throughout our life, old bone is broken down by cells called osteoclasts and replaced by bone-building cells called osteoblasts - a process called bone turnover,' explains Robert Moots, professor of rheumatology at Aintree University Hospital in Liverpool .
Children's bone growth is rapid - the skeleton takes just two years to renew itself completely. In adults, this can take ten years.
Until our mid-20s, bone density is still increasing. But at 35 bone loss begins as part of the natural ageing process.
This becomes more rapid in post-menopausal women and can cause the bone-thinning condition osteoporosis.
The shrinking in size and density of bones can lead to loss of height.
Bones in the back shrivel up or crumble between the vertebrae. We lose two inches in height by the time we're 80.
• TEETH Start ageing at 40
As we age, we produce less saliva, which washes away bacteria, so teeth and gums are more vulnerable to decay.
Receding gums - when tissue is lost from gums around the teeth - is common in adults over 40.
Glasses are the norm for many over - 40s as failing eyesight kicks in - usually long-sightedness, affecting our ability to see objects up close.
As we age, the eye's ability to focus deteriorates because the eyes' muscles become weaker, says Andrew Lotery, professor of ophthalmology at the University of Southampton .
• HEART Starts ageing at 40
The heart pumps blood less effectively around the body as we get older. This is because blood vessels become less elastic, while arteries can harden or become blocked because of fatty deposits forming on the coronary arteries - caused by eating too much saturated fat.
The blood supply to the heart is then reduced, resulting in painful angina. Men over 45 and women over 55 are at greater risk of a heart attack.
A recent study by Lloyds Pharmacy found the average person in the UK has a 'heart age' five years older than their chronological age, probably due to obesity and lack of exercise.
• KIDNEYS Starts ageing at 50
With kidneys, the number of filtering units (nephrons) that remove waste from the bloodstream starts to reduce in middle age. One effect of this is their inability to turn off urine production at night, causing frequent trips to the bathroom.
The kidneys of a 75-year-old person will filter only half the amount of blood that a 30-year-old's will.
• PROSTATE Starts ageing at 50
The prostate often becomes enlarged with age, leading to problems such as increased need to urinate, says Professor Roger Kirby, director of the Prostate Centre in London . This is known as benign prostatic hyperplasia and affects half of men over 50, but rarely those under 40.
It occurs when the prostate absorbs large amounts of the male sex hormone testosterone, which increases the growth of cells in the prostate.
A normal prostate is the size of a walnut, but the condition can increase this to the size of a tangerine.
• GUT Starts ageing at 55
A healthy gut has a good balance between harmful and 'friendly' bacteria. But levels of friendly bacteria in the gut drop significantly after 55, particularly in the large intestine, says Tom MacDonald, professor of immunology at Barts And The London medical school. As a result, we suffer from poor digestion and an increased risk of gut disease.
Constipation is more likely as we age, as the flow of digestive juices from the stomach, liver, pancreas and small intestine slows down.
• TASTE AND SMELL Start ageing at 60
We start out in life with about 10,000 taste buds scattered on the tongue. This number can halve later in life.
After we turn 60, taste and smell gradually decline, partly as a result of the normal ageing process.
This can be accelerated by problems such as polyps in the nasal or sinus cavities. It can also be the cumulative effect of years of smoking.
• BLADDER Starts ageing at 65
Loss of bladder control is more likely when you hit 65. The bladder starts to contract suddenly, even when it's not full. Women are more vulnerable to bladder problems as, after the menopause, declining oestrogen levels make tissues in the urethra - the tube through which urine passes - thinner and weaker, reducing bladder support.
Bladder capacity in an older adult generally is about half that of a younger person - about two cups in a 30-year-old and one cup in a 70-year-old.
This causes more frequent trips to the loo, particularly as poor muscle tone means the bladder may not fully empty. This in turn can lead to urinary tract infections.
• VOICE Starts ageing at 65
Our voices become quieter and hoarser with age. The soft tissues in the voice box (larynx) weaken, affecting the pitch, loudness and quality of the voice.
A woman's voice may become huskier and lower in pitch, whereas a man's might become thinner and higher.
• LIVER Starts ageing at 70
This is the only organ in the body which seems to defy the aging process. 'Its cells have an extraordinary capacity to regenerate,' explain David Lloyd, a consultant liver surgeon at Leicester Royal Infirmary.
He says he can remove half a liver during surgery and it will grow to the size of a complete liver within three months.
If a donor doesn't drink, use drug or suffer from infection, then it is possible to transplant a 70-year-old liver into a 20-year-old.
At 8 -- You take her to bed and tell her a story.
At 18 -- You tell her a story and take her to bed.
At 28 -- You don't need to tell her a story to take her to bed.
At 38 -- She tells you a story and takes you to bed.
At 48 -- She tells you a story to avoid going to bed.
At 58 -- You stay in bed to avoid her story.
At 68 -- If you take her to bed, that'll be a story!
At 78 -- What story??? What bed??? Who the hell are you???
70岁的时候，我们坐在摇椅上，戴着老花镜，欣赏着50年前我给你的情书，我们已经布满皱纹的手又握在了一起，那时侯我说我爱你，你深情地望着我，你那已经皱纹满面的脸仍是那么美丽…… 炉子上的开水咕嘟咕嘟地冒烟, 温馨的暖意充满了整个屋子......

As my friend was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from the ropes they were tied to but for some reason, they did not. My friend saw a trainer nearby and asked why these beautiful, magnificent animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away.
"Well," he said, "when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it's enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free." My friend was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn't, they were stuck right where they were.
Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before? So make an attempt to grow further.... Why shouldn't we try it again?
Try this special method of cooking the eggs whereby you don't have to worry whether they are over-cooked or under-cooked. Wahlau, it's so easy la!
1) Place two pieces of tissue paper inside the rice cooker and sprinkle them with water.
2) Put in the eggs.
3) Close the lid and press "Cook" button.
4) Wait till the button jumps up. When it does, TURN OFF THE ELECTRICITY POWER. Do not leave them too long inside the rice cooker after cooked ...only do so if you prefer a harder egg yolk.
5) The eggs are ready.
The speed is faster than using ordinary boiling method. This is because the water sprinkled on the tissue will turn into steam and compressed inside the rice cooker to cook the eggs.
You can peel the egg shells off very easily. The egg yolks will turn out just nice, not too dry. And the best part is you don't have to do any washing nor cleaning at all.
TRY IT OUT AND YOU'LL LOVE IT !!!
