Tip bergaya agar penampilan kelihatan lansing

  1. pilih warna senada. busana dengan warna atau corak senada akan memperlihatkan kesan yang terbaik pada kelansingan badan anda.
  2. 'loose yourself', biarkan 'blazer' atau 'cargiden' anda tidak terkancing, agar kesan vertikel nampak lebih kuat pilih corak berjalur lurus dan tegak.
  3. pakai skaf panjang yang tidak terlalu lebar pada leher dan biar ia jatuh panjang.
    pilih sarung kaki yang warnanya senada dengan sepatu.
  4. elakkan memakai 'big belt' lebar dan besar yang hanya akan memberi kesan tubuh terbelah dua dan membuatkan anda kelihatan semakin pendek.
    hindari memakai aksesori 'choker' , lebih baik memilih rantai panjang yang berbentuk lonjong.
  5. tumit tinggi adalah satu kemestian. semakin tinggi sepatu, semakin membuatkan anda kelihatan lebih lampai. cuma anda perlu hindarinya memakai secara berterusan dan berganti dengan sepatu yang lebih selesa.
  6. pilih baju atasan dengan potongan leher berbentuk V. bentuk potongan leher ini akan membuat anda nampak lebih jinjang dan tinggi.
  7. jika anda bertubuh kecil dan berisi, hindari baju dengan motif besar, lebih baik motif kecil termasuk juga saku dan detailnya.

Terapi Pernafasan Untuk Sakit Kepala & Keletihan (Breathing Therapy For Headache & Tiredness)

Kita memiliki hidung berlubang disebelah kiri dan disebelah kanan. Apakah fungsinya sama untuk menarik dan membuang nafas ?
(Our noses have left and right nostrils. Are these nostrils having the same function for inhaling/"breathe- in" and exhaling/"breathe- out"?).

Sebenarnya fungsinya tidak sama dan dapat kita rasakan bedanya, sebelah kanan mewakili matahari (mengeluarkan panas ) dan sebelah kiri mewakili bulan (mengeluarkan dingin ). (Actually it's not the same and we can feel the difference. Accordingly, the right side represents the sun/"heat" and the left side represents the moon/"cold").

Jika sakit kepala , cubalah menutup lubang hidung sebelah kanan dan bernafaslah melalui hidung sebelah kiri dan lakukan kira-kira 5 minit , sakit kepala akan sembuh.
(When having headache, try to close your right nostril and use your left nostril to do breathing for about 5 min. The headache will be gone).

Jika anda merasa lelah , tutuplah lubang hidung sebelah kiri dan bernafaslah melalui hidung sebelah kanan .. Lakukan ulang-alik . Tak lama kemudian, anda akan merasakan segar kembali. Sebab lubang hidung sebelah kanan mengeluarkan panas, sehingga banyak sekali panas , lubang hidung sebelah kiri mengeluarkan dingin.
(If you feel too tired, do it the opposite way. Close your left nostril and breathe through your right nostril. After a while, you will feel refresh again. Because the right side belongs to heat, so it gets hot easily. The left side gets cold easily).

Perempuan bernafas lebih dengan hidung sebelah kiri , sehingga hatinya cepat menjadi dingin .. Laki-laki bernafas lebih dengan hidung sebelah kanan , sehingga cepat sekali marah.
(Women breathe mainly with their left nostril, so they get calm down easily. Men breathe mostly with their right nostril, so they get angry easily).

Apakah anda pernah memperhatikan pada saat bangun tidur, lubang hidung sebelah mana yang bernafas lebih cepat ? Sebelah kiri atau kanan ? Jika lubang hidung sebelah kiri bernafas lebih cepat , anda akan merasa sangat lelah . Tutuplah lubang hidung sebelah kiri dan gunakan lubang hidung sebelah kanan untuk bernafas , anda akan merasa segar kembali dengan cepat.
(When we wake up, do we notice which nostril breathes faster? Is it the left side or the right side ? If the left nostril breathes faster, you will feel very tired. Close your left nostril and use your right nostril for breathing and you will get refresh quickly).

Cara tersebut boleh diajarkan kepada anak-anak , tetapi kesannya akan lebih baik jika diterapkan kepada orang dewasa.
(You can teach your kids about it. The effect of breathing therapy is much better for adults).

Saya biasanya merasakan sakit kepala , dan rasanya perit. Kemudian saya berjumpa doktor dan beliau bergurau: "Anda akan sembuh jika berumah tangga !" Doktor itu tidak bicara kosong. Apa yang dia sampaikan adlah berdasarkan teori dan testimoni. Selama itu, setiap malam saya merasakan sakit kepala dan tidak dapat belajar. Saya mengambil obat , tetapi tidak sembuh.
(I used to have painful headache. When consulted a doctor, he told me jokingly," You will be all right if you get married!" The doctor did not bullshit me as he had his theory and supported with testimony. During that time, I used to have headache every night and I was not able to study. I took medicine but I was not cured).

Pada suatu malam, saya duduk bermeditasi dan menutup lubang hidung sebelah kanan dan bernafas dengan lubang hidung sebelah kiri .. Dalam kurang dari satu minggu , sakit kepala saya sembuh .. Saya teruskan melakukannya selama 1 bulan, sejak malam itu sampai sekarang , sakit kepala saya tidak berulang lagi.
(One night as I sat down to medidate, I closed my right nostril and breathed with my left nostril.. In less than a week it seemed that my headache problem had left me! I continued doing it for about a month and since then there was no recurrence of headache in me).

Ini adalah pengalaman saya sendiri . Saya beritahukan hal ini kepada orang lain, jika sakit kepala, cubalah cara tersebut kerana sangat efektif buat saya. Banyak orang lain telah mencubanya dan berhasil . Ini adalah terapi alam, tidak seperti makan ubat dalam jangka panjang yang memungkinkan ada kesan sampingannya. Jadi kenapa anda tidak mencubanya ? (This is my own experience. I used to tell others who also suffer headache to try this method as it was effective for me. It also works for those who have tried as well. This is a natural therapy, unlike taking medicines for a long time may have side effect. So, why don't you try it out?).

Dengan mempraktikkan terapi pernafasan ini secara betul (menarik dan mengeluarkan nafas), keadaan tubuh anda akan sangat tenang.
(Practice the correct ways of breathing/ "breathe in and breathe out" and your body will be in a very relaxing condition.
Semoga sangat bermanfaat buat kawan² semua.

The Love Calculator

Interesting...hehehe...give a try...;-) Lets check how many % you will get...haha...

Your Sensitive Skin with the Right Beauty Products

For those with sensitive skin, it can prove to be difficult to find skin care products which do not irritate the skin. Sensitive skin tends to be thin and delicate. It has fine pores and may flush easily.

Capillaries in the skin are susceptible to being broken and the skin is frequently plagued by allergens and can break out with a rash easily. The skin often burns easier in the sun, tends to feel tight when certain cosmetics are applied and can easily become itchy, or sting. Treating Sensitive Skin Effectively It may surprise you to know the number of people with sensitive skin is increasing in number.

This is a result of pollutants, stress and UV exposure (due to lack of using sunscreen). Those with sensitive skin can care for their skin with the use of products designed to be gentle and caring. There are keywords to look for when choosing sensitive skin care products. Look for words including hypoallergenic, fragrance free and non-cosmogenic on the labels of any products you want to try.


1. Hypoallergenic means the product was created and tested to have little or no allergic reaction with the skin.

2. Fragrance free means no additional ingredients have been added to create or cover up fragrance. Studies show fragrance is the leading cause of skin allergy, allergic reactions, dermatitis, eczema and peeling from makeup.

3. Non-cosmogenic means the product does not clog the pores of the skin


Hypoallergenic Products for Sensitive Skin


In addition to staying away from harmful ingredients, it’s important to add the right components of healthy skin care into a daily beauty regimen. Begin with a gentle and non-drying cleanser, such as those made by Cetaphil or Neutrogen brands. Cleansing facial soap will wash away and remove dirt, oil and chemicals from the environment and help you with treating and preventing blemish outbreaks and acne.

The second product needed is an exfoliant. When you exfoliate your skin, you will remove the dead skin cells and leave the skin glowing. It is recommended to use an exfoliant with salicylic acid, which is easier on the skin than those products with an alpha hydroxyl. Beware of those with a toner included, as they may be too harsh for sensitive skin areas.Next, be sure to use a great moisturizer lotion or cream.

Every skin type (from oily to dry) needs a moisturizer. You should have a daytime moisturizer with an SPF and a richer nighttime moisturizer, which better hydrates the skin in the evening.


Always Use Sunscreen!


Lastly, all beauty regimes should include a sunscreen that protects against UVA and UVB rays. UVB rays cause the skin to burn and cause skin cancer. UVA rays cause premature aging or wrinkling of the skin. You need to look for three key ingredients in your sunscreen which will ensure healthy protection.

These include titanium dioxide, zinc oxide and avobenzone. These three ingredients absorb UVA and UVB rays protecting the sun from burning or other types of skin damage. When you take care of your sensitive skin and use the tips above, you will have healthy and smooth skin that feels as good as it looks!

The Pros and Cons of Coffee Drinking

Mmm... coffee, the aroma, the flavor. It makes mornings so much better! But is our daily cup of coffee doing more harm than good?


There is a lot of research concerning both the negative and the positive effects of coffee drinking.


The "Pros"


1. Antioxidants. Coffee is loaded with antioxidants like chlorogenic acid and melanoidins. Antioxidants help prevent oxidation, a process that causes damage to cells and contributes to aging. Melanoidins from roasted coffee have antioxidative effects depending on the way the coffee is treated.


2. Parkinson's disease. Regular coffee consumption reduces the risk of Parkinson's disease. A number of studies [1],[2] have demonstrated that people who drink coffee on a regular basis are significantly less likely to develop Parkinson's disease.


3. Diabetes. Coffee consumption is potentially protective against the development of type 2 diabetes. A prospective cohort study as part of the US Nurses Health Study found that moderate consumption of both caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee may lower the risk of type 2 diabetes in younger and middle aged women.


4. Liver cirrhosis. Coffee drinking may protect against liver cirrhosis, especially alcoholic cirrhosis.


5. Gallstones. There is some evidence that coffee drinking may be protective against gallstone formation in both men and women.


6. Kidney stones. Coffee consumption lowers the risk of kidney stones formation. Coffee increases the urine volume, preventing the crystallization of calcium oxalate, the most common component of kidney stones.


7. Improved mental performance. Caffeine in coffee is a well-known stimulant. Coffee promotes alertness, attention and wakefulness. The cup of coffee can also increase information processing.


8. Alzheimer's disease. Regular coffee consumption seems to protect against Alzheimer's disease. Recent mouse study showed that caffeine equivalent to 5 cups of coffee per day reduced the build up of destructive plaques in the brain.


9. Asthma. Caffeine in coffee is related to theophylline, an old asthma medication. Caffeine can open airways and improve asthma symptoms.


10. Caffeine safety. In 1958, caffeine was placed on the Food and Drug Administration's list as generally recognized as safe (GRAS).


The "Cons"


1. Heart disease. The relation between coffee consumption and risk of cardiovascular disease has been examined in many studies, but the results remain controversial. Most prospective cohort studies have not found coffee consumption to be associated with significantly increased cardiovascular disease risk. On one hand, diterpenes cafestol and kahweol present in unfiltered coffee and caffeine each appear to increase risk of coronary heart disease. High quality studies have confirmed the cholesterol-raising effect of diterpenes. Coffee consumption is also associated with an increase of plasma homocysteine, a risk factor for coronary heart disease. On the other hand, a lower risk of heart disease among moderate coffee drinkers might be due to antioxidants found in coffee.Besides that, caffeine can increase the risk of heart attack, especially among those people who carry the "slow" gene variant for the enzyme that metabolizes caffeine.


2. Cholesterol. Heavy consumption of boiled coffee elevates blood total and LDL cholesterol ("bad cholesterol") levels. Unfiltered coffee contains two cholesterol-raising compounds cafestol and kahweol.


3. Blood vessels. Coffee negatively affects the blood vessel tone and function (increases arterial stiffness and wave reflections).


4. Heart rhythm disturbances. Coffee can cause rapid or irregular heartbeats (cardiac arrhythmias).


5. Blood pressure. Although coffee consumption is not a significant risk factor for hypertension, it produces unfavorable effects on blood pressure and people prone to hypertension may be more susceptible. Recent Italian study found that coffee drinking can slightly increase the risk for development of sustained hypertension in persons with elevated blood pressure.


6. Osteoporosis. Coffee intake may induce an extra urinary excretion of calcium. Heavy coffee consumption (4 cups=600 ml or more) can modestly increase the risk of osteoporosis, especially in women with a low calcium intake.


7. Heartburn. A cup of coffee can trigger heartburn. Sleep


8. Sleep. Most of us are aware of the stimulatory effects of caffeine. High amounts of caffeine taken before going to sleep, can cause restlessness and difficulty falling asleep, tendency to be awakened more readily by sudden noises, and a decreased quality of sleep. However, some people can drink coffee and fall right asleep.


9. Dehydration. The caffeine in coffee is a mild diuretic and can increase urine excretion. This effect may be easily neutralized by drinking an extra glass of water.


10. Dependence. Caffeine is a drug, a mild central nervous system stimulant, and it produces dependence. Caffeine withdrawal is a real syndrome. You may get a few days of headache and irritability if you choose to quit drinking coffee, however, it is relatively easy to break this habit, and most people are not addicted to caffeine.So, what is the key? The old principle - "everything in moderation" - holds true for coffee. It is not bad unless you abuse it. Coffee has its downsides, but offers enough good points to make it a worthwhile drink. For moderate coffee drinkers (3-4 cups/day providing 300-400 mg/day of caffeine), there is little evidence of health risks and some evidence of health benefits. And for sure you can enjoy your coffee as part of a healthy diet.
