I just finished a romance, adventure book called Tithe by Holly Black. It was a short-listed award candidate and by finishing it I know why it was not a winner. I would explain my theory when I do a review on this book. Yes I am going to do a review. But that would be after me finish reading another adventure but forbidden romance book called Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr. I forgotten to get a soft cover instead of hard one since it would be cheaper but I have discovered the joy of holding a hard cover book again. I thought it was lost.
I'm now reading 2 books: Be Mine by Laura Something and Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr. Both of them are equally good. And I'm clearly paying the price for reading 2 interesting books at a time. I feel like I want to read both of them at the same time. I could if I knew Kage Bunshin Jutsu (Dopplehanger).
Gee. Speaking of which to read first, I'm now watching Engineering Empire: Egypt. Very damn interesting to see how the Egypt people build the pyramid without any machines other than 2 hands. I think it's a genius work because I simply don't have a brain that works like that.
But I'm also torn between tonight's programme because I also want to watch Scary Movie 4 which starts the second hour of the programme I'm watching now.

Renee washes her face like she does every morning but this time she was looking into the mirror solemnly. She studied her heart-shaped face with scrutiny especially the eyes when she could hear her sister's wailing of eye bags, fine lines and crow feet playing and rewinding in her mind amid the grogginess.
Her dreamy doe-eyes were still gazing at the other her in the mirror. She reminded herself today is her birthday; older and wiser. She sighed at the word "older" and doubted her wising part. She looked closer into the mirror and wondered if she had looked "older and wiser". But which part of her should be older and wiser? She wondered aloud. Any parameters?
Renee didn't let go of the intent look in the mirror. But what can she do on this day? Freeze the day so that she could never be "older and wiser"? She heaved heavily and released the gaze of the girl that just looks like her and wished Happy Birthday.
*Thank you for the birthday wishes!

I spent my early birthday dinner last night with Wormx2 at Chillies. And hey, I got a free chocolate brownie as a birthday treat. Surprisingly, I could go to Chillies or TGIF restaurant every night to get a birthday treat by just saying "It's my birthday today" with an innocent smile. Gee. I could live on like that and I'm living in the slogan "everyday is my birthday."
But the highlight of the night was Wormx2 and I found a very funny comic book reflecting on Malaysian lifestyle something like that. The scenario is as below:
When Malaysians from the north and south meet ...
A: Wah ... it's already so late and there are still so many people?
B: Your first time in Kuala Lumpur is it? We don't sleep so early.
A: I'm hungry already. Help me to order Hokkien mee.
B: HOKKIEN MEE!!!
The noodle came ...
A: Eh? How come this is Fried noodle not Hokkien Mee??
B: Aiya our version of Hokkien mee is fried noodle.
A: I'm hungry. Help me to order Laksa.
B: Lady boss! LAKSA!!!
The Laksa came ...
A: Eh? How come this is Curry mee not Laksa?
B: Aiya ... if you want Laksa ... it is Assam Laksa...
A: Ok I understand how the food calling system works now. I want to eat Wan Tan Mee.
B: WAN TAN MEE!!!
A: I actually want to eating Chee Cheong Fun ...
B: WALAU. Then why you ordered Wan Tan Mee???!!
*Chee cheong fun is really Chee cheong fun and Wan Tan Mee is really Wan Tan Mee. A should have just say Chee Cheong Fun instead of Wan Tan Mee.
My mum and sister don't really get the joke. Might be me being the third party not passing accurate information from the comic book.
Laughter is always the best medicine.

Herbs.... Ok drone on.
Tuesday, September 11, 2007
I was actually depressed since my last entry because my irritated hand downloaded the latest chapter of Naruto which was not released by my favourite scanlator. And so I was depressed after reading some details about the killing. But I won't expand on it because this entry has got nothing to do with Naruto spoiler. I think it's high time to make one. So you guys have been warned, ya. Oh Bleach latest chapter is quite interesting because at last [AT LAST!!] we have a former bad gal. Bwhaha. Read it if you want to know what I mean.
Another thing I was depressed because I feel like gayut-ing (swinging in Malay) on trees like a monkey. Could be I read too much article on monkeys trade in the Star newspaper today and also too much of Naruto manga which made me feel like "Yay, I want to be a Ninja" because I simply want to hang myself upside down on a tree. And there is a school in Japan that gives me Ninja lessons? Holycow. Don't worry about that sentence. I'm just simply in a phase of researching too many articles on death, so it might influence my head for some time. And I have not been using the word 'cincang' (slicing in Malay) for quite some time. Grew out of it? Maybe. Time to get another cooler vocabulary? YES!
Because I'm not a fighter that could not even slice a jambu (a kind of fruit) properly last night. It's easy to recognize that specialization in roles exist. People even create robots for specific purpose so why not humans. As I said I'm not a fighter or a cry baby, I decided to pump up my knowledge in other areas like invention and other interesting areas.
As I was doing so, I searched on herbal remedies. It's an interesting topic but it's pretty weird because the webmistress or the authors or I read somewhere before said that herbs are cheap. Oh yea right. How can they be cheap if some parts of the world like Malaysia has no access to fresh lavender or echinacea to make our own herbal solution? Oh I forgot. We could get them in dried or capsule form but doesn't that defeat the purpose of 'make your own remedy'?
So now I'm thinking to myself what's the point of knowing if I can't even play with these herbs from my backyard? Oh well the same goes to Chinese herbs. Chinese herbs are even worse. Mix the wrong herbs, you end up having food poisoning like my sister and my cousin's maids a few years ago. What did they do? My sister, smartalek, mixed don't know what herbs together as soup. It tasted good but later food poisoning until the chinese doctor warned her not to simply mix herbs again. The maids? Haha. My sister made some Chinese drink which they find it too sweet which is natural sweetness so they mixed with water. And haha they got food poisoning. Cool huh? Did I give you some idea to murder someone without revealing your murder motive? If I did, don't forget to CREDIT me, not POINTING me as the master mind. Hello... I don't even know the dead victim... why should I poison it (yea it because he's/she's dead?)
Again. I'm not suppose to be bla bla about them. I'm supposed to share some interesting facts and provide general knowledge about herbs:
1. Ginkgo for Erection and Libido Problems
Ginkgo improves blood flow into the genitals. In a study published in the Journal of Urology, 60 men with erection problems caused by narrowed arteries and impaired blood flow to the penis were given ginkgo (60 mg a day); after six months, half had regained erection ability. When researchers at the University of Hawaii and Stanford University tested ArginMax, a sexual-enhancement supplement that contains ginkgo, ginseng and L-arginine, 80 percent of the male subjects had improved erection function, while 74 percent of the female subjects reported more libido, less dryness and greater frequency of orgasm.
2. Ginkgo for Anti-Depressant-Induced Sex Problems
An enormous number of Americans take antidepressants, The relief comes at a price: a substantial risk of libido loss erection impairment, vaginal dryness and inability to reach orgasm. Investigators at the University of California at San Francisco gave ginkgo (209 mg a day) to 63 people suffering from antidepressant-induced sex problems. The herb helped 91 percent of the women and 76 percent of the men to return to normal sexual function
3. Ginseng for Erectile Dysfunction
According to a review of studies at Yale University, ginseng boosts the body's synthesis of nitric oxide. As NO increases, so does the likelihood of erection. In a report in the Journal of Urology, Korean researchers gave 45 men with erection impairment a placebo or ginseng (900 mg three times a day). Those taking the herb experienced significant erection improvement.
4. Ginseng for Low Sperm Count
At the University of Rome, Italy, researchers gave ginseng (4 grams a day) to 30 men suffering from low sperm counts. Three months later, the subjects' counts almost doubled, from an average of 15 million/ml to 29 million/ml.
5. Ginger for Motion Sickness
In ancient China, sailors chewed ginger root to prevent motion sickness and modern studies have confirmed that ginger prevents nausea and vomiting. Danish scientists at Svendborg Hospital observed 80 naval cadets in heavy seas and found that those who took ginger experienced 72 percent less seasickness than a placebo group. Take a 1-gram capsule of powdered ginger root about an hour before you embark, and another every two hours or as needed (without exceeding 10 grams a day) during a journey, Ginger's only side effect is occasional minor heartburn. "t use ginger myself." Duke says, "It works for me."
So I'm sure people would be clear now of why some coffee has Ginseng and how does it help. I'm now very clear because I just thought companies include Ginseng just for the taste and it's revitalising energy ...
Hopefully this entry is interesting and beneficial to you all.
