My Bones Density And Cholesterol Test

One pharmacy in old town called me up stating that there would be a free Bone Density Test and Cholesterol Test held in their shop on Tuesday, just a couple of days ago.  Since it is free of charge, I went to get the tests done.  No long queues surprisingly cos I went in the afternoon after taking lunch and all.  Not so accurate no doubt but with lunch and all, I was expecting my cholesterol level to be on the "high" side.
Firstly, I was instructed to put my right leg on a machine... 
The result came out like this....  at the -0.9 level but still on the green side.... 
Borderline no doubt... but at my age, it is not surprising at all....
Two of my colleagues were at the yellow and red respectively...
One of them bought calcium magnesium after that...
Then came my cholesterol level...
During the past two years, I was at the 6.1 and 6.2 level respectively.
But this year my level showed 5.68 (at another clinic few months back)
and now 5.52 at this pharmacy.....
Good eh??? 
It has reduced....
Maybe my daily drinking of BG22 Oats help to reduce my cholesterol level...
Or perhaps my light lunch also helps... ??
Whatever it is, I also must need to maintain...

  3. Well done! MY cholesterol was always high but lately it was under control and even went until 4.5 , thanks to Amway products - Cholesterol Balance and Salmon Oil. My wifey also went down. Thought of sharing with you since they are good. Of course, my 5 times a week exercise and diet also helps.

  7. Oohh I've done a bone density test before.. I remembered that few months I was having a lot of yogurt and Anlene milk, coz I was trying to conceive so I took a lot of hi calcium food.. And that bone density reading is very accurate, I got the highest reading among my colleagues.. So yeah, I guess those yogurt and Anlene milk really have a lot of calcium in them, hehe..

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
