If this has convinced the reader in you, then you can be quite sure that it’ll convince other readers as well. Which so happen to be the people you’re looking for.

Pictures speak a thousand words, and so does this statistic:
- Average unique readership of 523 a day, 1849 a week and total readership of 4819 a week and growing rapidly even having just started 23rd April 2009. *readership statistics as at 11th February 10 and will be updated as and when there's a change.

Fitness First, Looks Later

Professionals and experts are constantly challenging the theory of being fit against being thin. For long term prospects fitness is by far the more useful of the two.

It is common knowledge that obesity is becoming a worldwide problem, but constant media hype only continues to heighten the problem.

Professor Paul Campos has a keen interest in the way people relate to the way their body looks, weight watching and how they themselves relate to their food intake. He has spoken in depth to four hundred people to glean important information in order to help him write his new book ‘The Obesity Myth: Why America’s Obsession with Weight is Hazardous to Your Health‘. Campos studied Law at Colorado University but is well versed with the medical world.

Americans have become consumed with educated panic, the more focus put upon weight loss the more frenzied they become. Rather than accept themselves and their bodies for what they are, anxieties are overtaking and becoming a focal point, thus causing mental anguish and instability.

Labour Day Countdown

People actually countdown to Labour's Day? Wow, any reason as long as its a party huh?
..
Well, if you really want to countdown for Labour's Day, do it in Genting. Not only its cooling and its cool to be up there (lol!!), you are way high up, higher than the rest of Kuala Lumpur. Spectacular view if there's fireworks in Klang Valley.

Plan well if you really wanna head up because we predict, there will be loads of vehicle going up, so go earlier to avoid sandwiching between crawling cars.

Art of Healing By Dr Amir Farid Isahak

We believe that this topic can be related to young adults. Quite an article by Dr Amir Farid Isahak. Take your time to read it if you've not.

This article was taken from http://www.thestar.com.my/

Losing that excess weight is not nearly as impossible as you think ... you just need the right tools and knowledge.

OBESITY is becoming the plague of modern society, as affluence, unhealthy diets and sedentary lifestyles become the norm. With it come the chronic lifestyle diseases – hypertension, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancers and other degenerative health problems.

Taking the US as the leading example of such a society, we find that the proportion of overweight adults had increased from 45% (1960) to 70% (2005). One third of these were classified as obese (moderate to severe overweight with increased health risks; with the real problem being excess body fat).

Malaysians are only slightly better off, but are also heading the same way, because we also indulge in fast foods and poor diets, and most hardly exercise. Nearly 40% of adult Malaysians are overweight, including about 10% or more who are obese.

A study done among schoolchildren (six to 17 years) in Kuala Lumpur in 1997 reported that about 10% were overweight, while about 4% were obese. I believe that more than 10 years later, with a higher standard of living, the situation is worse.

Aneroxia of Ageing by Mary Easaw-John

We were browsing through The Star today and we came across a topic which made one of us remember what it was like, to have someone close to us, suffering from Aneroxia.

This article was taken from http://www.thestar.com.my/

There are many nutritional issues that we need to be aware of when we take care of our elderly.

IT is important to eat a well-balanced diet not only when we are younger, but also when we age. However, as we age the phenomenon known as “anorexia of ageing” takes place. With advancing years, a person’s body starts to ignore normal food cues and altered feeding fads become apparent. Examples of these are eating infrequently, consuming more sweets or not eating enough vegetables, and not drinking enough fluids.

All these changes are often not well understood by the elderly, their caregivers or even their physicians and dietitians.

Karen Cheng's Snippets of Life



This is one blog we've been following every single time she updates. As we've mentioned on our previous post, keeping it plain and simple, is the real deal! Karen's blog is so neat, so fresh and happy looking. Her pictures are uploaded as if she took them and trimmed them herself, which is really interesting.

She blogs mainly on her life with her husband, 2 kids and her newborn baby (congrats girl!). Nothing really out of the ordinary but the way she writes, really captures her readers. Id say, this is a recommended blog that females should follow, even males! We learn something new every time we read her blog.

About Karen Cheng's Snippets of Life
taken from her site http://www.karencheng.com.au/

Snippets of Life is a website about women’s lifestyle, fashion and living a balanced and fulfilling life. It also covers topics on family, parenting, children, food, art, design, photography, and online shopping.

The Best Photo

We truly believe that everyone in life should make things plain and simple. When things are plain and simple, there will be no war, no fights, no complications, just plain nothing-out-of-the-ordinary life.

Ok, not that plain! what we are trying to say is that for a picture to stand out, its really not necessary to focus much on the background or add ons that you include to make your photo look complete. All you need is a white background, and the object or person that you want to take a photo of.

Why plain white background? Because anything in front of something white, no matter grey, silver or something light, will stand out from the white and it does not only makes your picture outstanding, the whole picture carries a clean and fresh look that people would love to lay their eyes on. On top of that, it seriously draws the attention to the object that you are taking of. Isnt that what everybody wants to achieve? Straight to the point, nothing else.

We came across No Plain Days, an online boutique. It hit us that their pictures are so fresh looking, so fun and gentle, yet it spells out what they are trying to sell. We really love the way they took them, real candid. Way to go girls!!

Fashion Picks

Yay, our first post on fashion picks. So adore some of their artsy looks.


Honestly speaking, we really admire some of the attire pulled together by bunch of college students. Its really interesting that fashion is a BIG word. No matter what we look like, its all down to our personality to pull of a fashion. If you are a very confident person, we'd say your style is LOUD. Bright bold colours, totally yummy! Now here, we found a couple of interesting and unusual (not an everyday thing) from some of our listed online boutiques.

Soak Republic - they carry some of the most unique designs for our daily accessories.
