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 after sprinkling with sesame seeds.... 
One of those days when I am in the cooking mode!

My Food Variety During The Week

FOOD IN AND OUT... I did not go out for many days, I think two weeks since my jab, oh no, I am talking about my jab again.... advised not to go out when the immunity is weak... 

When others do not have much or no symptoms at all, I am the rare one who has body aches until this second week.  Not only that, my throat is also very irritating that I have to succumb to taking cough and phlegm medicine.  Either my body is too weak or my antibodies are fighting all the way with the Sinovac jab.  LOL.... Whatever it is, I pray that the second time round will not be as bad as this first.... 

Not much appetite but I had these during some days last week....  
Breakfast is normally noodles bought by neighbour....
On some days, I take only bread or buns...
Homecooked food delivery.... RM10 per packet delivered to the house....
But only for Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays....
On the other days, I ordered from another delivery....
I normally cook dinner myself....
Something odd especially I am too lazy....
Just steam the fish with unchopped garlic, ginger and homegrown okra...
No impressive but I just ate it all the same... LOL... 
But this is impressive....
Just received it for dinner yesterday.... 
My niece ordered dinner for me.... 
E-sushi... I wonder how she got this information....
Anyway, very nice presentation and they taste good too!

My Booster Gifts

NOT BOOSTER DOSE YET... but booster gifts to boost up my health after discharge from hospital.... 

Since the discharge and my first dose of the vaccination, I am still not back to my normal self as yet, still abnormal, so it seems... LOL.... 

I feel my body is still in a recuperating state, the feeling is like recovering from a bout of antibiotics and the body is still not as strong and lively as before.  Oh dear, I really look like an old lady now, white hair, do things slow-slow, walk also slow.... eat slowly.... yes, everything seems to be on the second gear now.  Picking up slowly.... and my second dose is not even here yet! 

Should I take these?  So far I have taken one of each .... still skeptical whether I should be taking these ginseng to boost up my energy or not.  How come my side effects of the jab last so long one?  This is going to be my third week.... 

Chicken essence and Ginseng... 
From Eu Yang Sang....
So far I have taken one packet...
Double boiled it for over an hour and drank 2 mugs.... 
Thank you, AA for your thoughfulness....

Just 10ml and consume it early in the morning 
To boost up the body battery....

Things to Consider When Blogging About Cars

Do you love cars? Do you want to share your knowledge with the world and start a blog about them? If so, there are many things that you should consider before taking the plunge. This article will cover some of those critical points.

Be Up to Date with the Trends

It is essential to be informed about the current trends in the automotive industry. You don't want to post about electric cars if no one is buying them anymore.

Improve Your Skills in the Niche

You can't blog about a subject you don't know much about. Find out what your niche is and if there are any gaps in the market that need to get filled.

Don't Forget SEO

Include keywords in the title and throughout your blog post. You can also insert links to other articles or pages related to yours so that Google's search engine algorithms will attract more readers.

Keep up with Social Media Networks

Blog posts have a shorter lifespan than ever before because they're getting shared at such high speed through different mediums. So, keep an eye on popular sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and others. 

Don't forget about niche-specific ones like Reddit for blogging about cars, so you don't miss any relevant news stories or industry developments that could spark some inspiration for future content.

Be Authentic and Honest

It is essential to see your blog as a platform for honesty and authenticity. Don't try to post about things you know nothing about or stretch the truth in any way because it will backfire on you sooner rather than later.

Don't be Afraid of Criticism

Blogging can come with a lot of different responses, some good and others bad. Being able to handle negative feedback will make you stronger in your blogging endeavors.

Encourage comments from readers by sharing information on social media networks like Facebook or Twitter about new blog posts that you publish. Hence, they know when it's their turn to comment!

Be Knowledgeable with Your Writing

You're not going to be taken seriously as a writer or authority on cars if you copy information from other blogs without verifying it first. Be sure that all of the content you share has been researched and feels true to your voice and beliefs to feel more credible when read by others. 

Don't plagiarize! Be careful, though, because this goes both ways. Try not to take credit for someone else's work either!

Don't be Afraid to Ask for Help

Many people have started blogs about cars, so there are plenty of resources available that can provide advice and guidance along the way. Use these sources as a resource whenever possible because it will make things easier in the long run when self-learning becomes too difficult or tiring! 

Plus, if someone has done something before, then chances are they've learned from their mistakes already, which means less time lost figuring everything out yourself.

It is essential to learn about the niche you want to log in to and be knowledgeable. It's also good not to get too personal with posts that are supposed to be about cars by focusing on yourself instead. Ask for help when needed so you can learn from others without having to spend as much time researching everything!

My Symptoms After Vaccination

MY SINOVAC JAB gave me these side effects after a couple of hours....

Hot flushes was felt, not the kind of fever I used to have.... my body just turned warmer than usual and it went off as soon as it came, nothing to be alarmed... 

The next day, I felt aches on my neck, collar bone and shoulders.... my chest was kind of congested, air flow was a bit difficult.  I was quite alarmed over the breathing which was not as normal as usual, I tried to take deep slow breaths as I thought it was due to anxiety attack again.  

After a week, I went back to my cardiologist, just a follow up visit since my hospital discharge.  He assured me that there is nothing wrong with my heart though my palpitations was a bit higher than normal in his clinic.  Who doesn't feel a bit anxious visiting the doctor?  Anyway.... he prescribed some medication for me.... 

It has been 13 days since my jab, I am still feeling not-so-normal as before yet though I can breathe normally now and my bone aches have subsided.... And to monitor myself at home, I bought a cheap-plug oximeter.... LOL...
My new toy I hold every now and then.... 
The first reading is oxygen level.... 
It should be around 90-100....
The second reading is the pulse rate.... 
Mine is always above 80 during the daytime...
And 70 plus when I really sit down and relax.... 
Before this vaccination, I never heard of this gadget...
Nowadays it is so commonly used....

My First Dose Of Sinovac At KPJ, Ipoh

VACCINATED.... on the same day I was discharged from the hospital.  My doctor gave an OK approval for me to be vaccinated, he even arranged for the hospital staff to give a pre-discharge the night before so that the bill would be ready before noon.  My appointment for the jab was at 3.30pm at KPJ Hospital but I was there even before 2pm.....

There was an auntie before my turn and that was it, no long queue and crowd.  Everything was done within half an hour, the hospital personnel were so helpful and friendly.  It was like VIP treatment... LOL.... 
Checking my Sejahtera... 
Another section... 
Till it was time..... 
To JAB...... 
Then it was a 15 minutes rest in the waiting room.... 
I was the only one by then....
And my first dose is done!
Another two weeks from today.... 
I will be here again!

Hairstyles To Don

Due to my many years of experiences in my appearance, the hair is one of the most important part that affects our physical impression.  I remember very well that one of my beautiful colleagues used to tell me this when I was very young.  She was in her forties then and each day when she reported to work, she looked very trim and elegant.  I used to envy her then because I really do not find real pleasure in styling my hair each morning.  Now as years go by, my hair is getting less and I guess I have to think of another option to beautify my hair... wigs!

Talking about wigs, I would like to share one of these hair vendors I came across in the internet.  I heard that they are very popular now in the market and these virgin Brazilian hair extensions are made of 100% original human Brazilian hairs!  Hey... Wait a minute.... are they really real?  That makes me recall an incident... many years ago, I think I was around eight years old then, I had long hair that reached up to my waist.  I remember my auntie taking me to the hair saloon and having my hair cut to a very short length.  And after that, I was told that my hair was "given" to the hair stylist to make wigs.   hmmm...  Well, I guess it is a good gesture, they can be used instead of being swept away.

As we all know, nowadays getting hair extensions and wigs are getting trendy and more popular, in terms of convenience, adding fullness to the hair and the length.  Besides that, of course, the different types of hairstyles are aplenty, one can only choose the style that suits the face, oval, long, round or squarish type of face.  Moreover, we can use different kind of hair extensions to change our lifestyles according to the time of the day and to get any kind of look such as cool one, groovy, sophisticated and the list goes on.

Meir hair is one of the most famous hair manufacturers in today's market.  Their virgin hair comes directly from human donor only, without any combination from other animal hair or other fibers, not chemically processed so there would be no strange smells.  Their double weft, no tangles hair made it so easy to manage, no shedding, easier to dye and the color is always bright.

Products And Ways To Oral Hygiene

One of the most important part of our body to look and take care is none other than our teeth.  From the time when we are babies till we grow old, oral hygiene is one way of keeping our teeth healthy and strong, free from decay and infection.  By taking care of our oral health, that includes brushing our teeth regularly plus proper flossing after the cleaning.  This is a good habit to start from a young age, and as we grow, by proper cleaning, it helps to prevent oral diseases such as cavities, gum infections like gingivitis, periodontal disease, receding gums and even more serious, oral cancer.  

To keep us well protected and having strong teeth, it is recommended that we use a cordless water flosser from Meyarn.  This cordless and effective water flosser helps to keep our teeth clean and fresh especially after a heavy meal of carbohydrates and sweeties.  There are 3 nozzles designed in Meyarn water flosser, standard, orthodontic and dental plaque, with their own individual needs.  This intelligent design prevents leakage and can even be used when we are having a shower.  Besides that, it also features 6 different modes for different oral care needs.

To prevent or reduce risk of developing minor or serious oral condition, it is pertinent that we practice regular oral care daily, especially when we wake up in the morning, after meals and before we go to sleep.  Brushing and flossing are the main practices we need to do each day.  It does not take much of our time to brush our teeth at one time, besides preventing teeth decay, our teeth will not produce bad odour.  A good flouride based toothpaste is also important, it helps to stimulates and gums that prevent gum disease and cavities.  For brushing, it is recommended to use Angle Interdental brushes that are specially designed to reach hard spots around braces, brackets and dental implants.

On flossing, this has to be done regularly to reduce the chance of having cavities forming in between our teeth.  This also helps to remove food debris and plaque in places where toothbrushes cannot reach.  For best results, use dental pics or threader to floss effectively.  Another recommended tool is to use the Water Flosser by Meyarn.

With all these information and dental products, this is one of the best ways to making it part of our daily life routine and to achieving effectiveness of our dental and oral care.
