Chickens that are injected with steroids are usually given the shot at the neck or the wings.
Therefore, it is in these places that the highest concentration of steroids exists.
These steroids have terrifying effects on the body as it accelerates growth..
It has an even more dangerous effect in the presence of female hormones, this leads to women being more prone to the growth of a cyst in the womb.
Therefore, I advise the people out there to watch their diets and to lower their frequency of consuming chicken wings!
by: Sharon How (SingaporeMedical Association)
So, next time.....think twice before you consume too much of that favourite chicken wings.
For the people who works for someone, well, its a time to Look forward to,
as end of month = pay day !
For the people who employs people to work, well,
worry time, and employers just dread this time of the month as
paying your workers without being able to collect is not an easy thing to do.
reading the news everyday, where, people are out of jobs, and not getting work,
where is everything heading to...........
what i can't understand is that, still, there are soooo many people who are living it up,
buying big cars, big house, spending thousands of dolloars a night, mistresses, and yet on the other hand, when you talk to the normal people on the streets, everyone will say....
'economy very bad', 'don't know how lah this year', 'no job', 'don't know when will get paid lah'
so how come ??
Is this the classic example of the rich getting richer ?

Well..... think again..... you might not own it legally (in some cases).
Recently, i have a case.
A company started developing an area in (Selangor).
Everything was going ok. all in oder.
most of the properties were sold.
But........ half way through, the company went into trouble.
and end up closing.
As usual, final title comes way long after the houses were hand over to individual owners.
At the moment, since the company is insolvent, no individual title has been issued, because..........
the process of getting individual title issued was not completed before the company went bankrup!
Some of the owners have since passed away, and guess what.......
all the so call owners are NOT the Legal owners of the propoerty.
And so. again, a Surveyor is there to recue.
only when it is too late and too old, and only then, people start to wonder........
am i the legal owner. ???
So, next time before you buy a property,........
ask a surveyor first for advice.
well atleast for this week anyway........
Its for a good cause, and i was reading the article on it, and it seems like there are plenty of people all over the world who are going to switch off their lights on saturday night...
Makes me wonder, is this just a big publisity thing that corporate giants get to lie to the public and say....... hey, i turn my lights off too.
But what happens after this weekend ??
Back to normal i guess, if not.....how can they answer to the shareholders ??
After all, making money is the ultimate aim.
But hey, atleast its a start.
I will be turning off my lights as well..........

A little boy was attending his first wedding. After the service, his cousin asked him, "How many women can a man marry?"
"Sixteen," the boy responded.
His cousin was amazed that he had an answer so quickly. "How do you know that?"
"Easy," the little boy said.
"All you have to do is add it up, like the Bishop said: 4 better, 4 worse, 4 richer, 4 poorer"

This is my experience.....
ok....this is regarding land matters.
Imagine, your client is one of government departments.
commision you to do a survey, and they have the slightest idea about what survey is and involve.
so, you go to survey department.......you get a plan.
you go to land office......you get another plan.
you go to majlis.......you get yet another plan.
and all of the above are legal documents, and are DIFFERENT !!
so, it comes down to the surveyor's advice.........
which one do you decide to adopt ?? and all are "so called" confirmed to be the same by the different authorities. !!
BUT NOT THE SAME !
and worst of all........ the client will say .... surveyor did not do a good job. sigh

hey ..... after all its school holidays.
but, once i passed the Sg Besi toll....... the same thing. JAM...
Everyone is heading to the City for shopping ? so early ? and still those people can afford to spend ?? ....... 'anyway...'
In the papers agian and again....... i have read.
Normal citizens like us are still complaining about the amount of tax payers' money the government is spending on COMPENSATION to the consessionaires .......
It still puzzles me as to, why do we have to pay for all this ?
and why did the government sign contracts that guarantee income for the highway operators.
price increases, number of cars increases,.....so that should mean their income has increased.
then why should we still compensate them, especially when they announce profits every year !!

I can not beleive myself. been sitting in the office for the past few hours, writing letters.
and all i wanted to do is to just send some survey drawings out.
but i have to write a 3 page letter, telling stories, making sure i don't directly or indirectly say the wrong thing........ sigh
what ever happened to simple work, just do it..... and not having to worry about someone, somewhere, someday, to just turn around and point the finger at you !! and saying.....
YOU ARE WRONG !
and whatever you say will not matter, as the answer will be......"ei, how come you did not inform us earlier ?? why you tak ada put in black and white ??"
then again, if we put it all in writing.......the answer will be.....
"ei, bro, apalah ini,...... no need to write and complain mah, just come and discuss and we solve the problem here, no need to write all these lah......nanti big boss tau, susah lah..."
so. is this so call our local way of being professional ??

and what surprise me was that, is it "like father like son" ?? or is it just a case of well educated, high profile, "respected" politicians do not have time to guide his son ??
well.......its a shame to see this, while these politicians are preaching to us something else, and in their own house, a different sets of rules.
How did the pictures find its way to the net ?
it is understood that, high profile politicians have a lot of so call "political enemies"...........
But, if you know there is, then why do it, and show it ??
And since the pictures were shown, the site was blocked.
why? what happened to freedom of speach ? The truth is always the Truth....
What puzzles me is that we read from the same newpaper, what i mean is that we/us (the normal citizens) and them/they (the politicians). Do they see what we see ? or they just pretend not to see ??
It has been reported that the country, especially in the city, is flooded with foreign workers that are without jobs. and to please us, since so much of us are without jobs and suffering from the economic situation, they say, NO MORE VISAS.....
BUT...... too late, instead of 70,000 issued, there were ONLY 55,000 issued,,,(No worries !) cause it was approved before.
SO....clearly we know what is the situation........ but blame it on who ? when the situation gets out of hand ?
why not just stop the people from coming, and tell the employers to take the ones stranded here and employ them instead ?
Easy,....... bring a lorry......look for the nearest bridge in town, go underneath, .......... and shout...
" mau kerja ? naik lori.......... !!"
I am quite sure you will fill up the lorry full with workers in seconds !!
A woman is lucky if she is the last love of a man.
It's better to lose your Ego to the one you Love,
than to lose the one you LOVE because of EGO.
so......... are you the lucky one ??

Baught some wine a few weeks back at Denise.........
Been a while since i was there for some wine, but drop by there cause LC was eager to start her wine drinking training..... :-)
With Denise, i find that the selection is limited and sometimes the pricing is a bit on the high side.
But with the membership card you get extra discount. and sometimes you can get nice wine that are hard to find elsewhere.
The Lucas........Californian...... Not really a californian wine person, I find the wine a bit young.
with the Lone Tree Merlot........ Its ok for the price.....
and the Maxwell Shiraz..... I have had it before, i like the full taste of it, but the price is a bit on the high side.....

ONE In A Million host Awal Ashaari takes a coffee break and confides that with money, love will find you.
Q: Which is better, having someone to love and no money or having money but no one to love?
A: I always believe that when you have money people will love you more.
There's no such thing as having money but no one to love because when you have money, you will definitely find love!
Maybe it is true.......that everyone thinks money will buy happiness (aka LOVE) ?
Friday, March 6, 2009
might be true to a certain degree, but hey, how much is enough ? sufficient ?
what is the gauge for this limit ?
Lets say, when you have $1000, then you might be happy for a day, and 2 days after that, you might think, hey!....... that $1000 won't buy me the new car i want.
so...... after a while, you have $100,000 (say....)
then you might say......hey!.....that $100,000 can only buy me a sedan, and not one of those sports models.........
and ofcourse.....this goes on...... $ 1 mil....... $ 2 mil........ ?? where will it end ??
it won't. Until we realise, what are the basics, and what truely makes us happy.
would you still say MONEY >>??
No doubt. life is tough. eveyrone has problems. and not everyone around you understands or care about your problems. other then the people closest to you that care.
Theres no problem in this world that can not be solved.
solving problems takes time and patience.
SURE....wish for all the money you can get in an instant...
but then again, don't forget...... theres never a free lunch in this world either !

THE Public Accounts Committee has given itself a new task: to be a mediator for contractors who have yet to be paid by government-linked companies
PAC chairman Datuk Seri Azmi Khalid said there were many contractors who had not been paid for jobs done for GLCs, some for as long as three years.
I know of people not being paid for longer then that !!!
"We have the ability to summon these companies to speak to us. At the very least, we can get these companies to tell the contractors why they were not paid."
Talk, talk and more talking,......and then "minum dulu (have a drink first).........", and then "makan dulu (lets eat first)........" the normal procedures....
what normal people and small contractors are interested is to get paid, and no more talking and excuses anymore.
Too many had suffered, gone out of business, bankrupt..........
Still, who can touch the Big Boys ? they will always win.......... sigh

work, work and more work.
I should be very happy that theres so much work, but then again, theres somthing not right thats making me feel bad.
Another promise broken ?? maybe ??
as promised,....... the most commonly used phrase.... (Inshallah....kita akan bayar minggu ini) !
is it really in god's hand when it come down to a matter of paying or not ??
In a way, yes and very much no !.
We all beleive in GOD !, but the problems we face nowadays, its got nothing to do with god,
but instead...... the greed of MEN !
If theres an earthquake, i understand, a flood, maybe...... tsunami..... God's will maybe....
but work done and not getting paid.....!! i think not so
why order someone to do the job when you can't pay ?
and if you can pay.....why not pay instead of delaying.......??
normal working people suffers because of the greed of a few !!!

but then again, if it is meant for private use, why not ?
between two consenting adult, there should not be any so call moral isuues right ?
An expert comment:
Maybe secretly many people want to be a porn star. It is happening worldwide and even in Australia, you see it happening more and more,” renowned Australian sex therapist
Dr Rosie King
Another expert comment :
“Many studies show that people can get sexually stimulated from pictures, videos or even watching themselves get naked in the mirror. There are those who get sexually aroused by their imagination and others from a memory of their sexual intercourse. In this case, what is the difference between a memory and videotape?” he asks.
According to a report in a local Chinese language daily, local sex video clips, whether taken without the knowledge of the couple or for their personal collection, are highly in demand among Malaysians.
Are we malaysian really into dirt, scandal, sex ? or are we just
very ke-poh-chi ??
But then again, my guess is that, scandal news & and naked pics are better then news about the economy, retrenchment, losing jobs and gloomy outlook.
a change of wind i suppose, even for that few minutes...........
海角 7 号....... but got pissed off because almost the end of the movie,
