The Air That We Breathe

The haze readings in certain areas have improved up north but according to my son who is residing down south, the API reading has rise up to 300 few days ago.  Schools for both primary and secondary were compelled to close for the day.  Due to the haze, my son has been coughing for the past few days and I have cautioned him to wear a mask and drink more water, besides that, if necessary, try to stay indoors as much as possible.  Hope the haze will be blown away soon... it is really hazardous to our health.

Just a moment ago, I read a website article on Vapor Intrusion, something linking to the air that we breathe.  As written here, accidental releases of volatile chemicals, such as solvents or other petroleum products, that leaks into the subsurface could result not only in the soil but the groundwater would be contaminated as well.  Once the soil is contaminated, the soil gas moves toward and into houses and buildings, thus it is known as Vapor Intrusion.  Lately it is said to have given much assessment and mitigation of the VI exposure pathway, it has become the most highly researched and regulated field in the environmental industry.  It is also written that the potential that building occupants may have unknowingly be breathing potentially harmful levels of impacted air due to the nearby environmental releases, it prompted much action from the state and federal agencies to impose conservative regulations and guidelines to the affected area.  This action needs some expertise advice from the Vapor Intrusion Consultants, they are the best people to be sought out specifically to evaluate the VI exposure pathway.  They resolves challenging environmental problems involving political, technical, regulatory, legal and financial issues with both business-oriented strategies for property owners, businesses and municipalities.

After reading all that, I now have a bigger image of how important the environmental air is to us.  We need healthy air to keep our body system free from more toxic embedded in our body.  If each of us play an important part to our surrounding area by keeping it clean, we can be "wealthy" in one way already, after all, as the saying goes, "Health is Wealth."

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
