Just now I've received an email from a friend.... as usual, it has been forwarded from a person to another....
It concern to me a lot... coz one of our ex-colleague passed away because of cancer.... Anyway... the email sounds as below :


Something to consider...
Next time you go shopping for * LIPSTICK *
This comes from someone
Who works in the breast cancer unit at
Mt. Sinai Hospital, in Toronto.

From :
Dr. Nahid Neman

If there is a female you care anything about,
Share this with her. I did!!!!!
I am also sharing this with the males on my email list,
Because they need to tell the females
THEY care about as well!
Recently a lipstick brand called 'Red Earth'
Decreased their prices from
$67 to $9.90.
It contained lead.
Lead is a chemical which causes cancer.
The lipstick brands that contain lead are:
RED EARTH (Lip Gloss)
CHANEL (Lip Conditioner)
The higher the lead content,
The greater the chance of causing cancer.
After doing a test on lipsticks,
It was found that the Y.S.L. Lipstick
Contained the most amount of lead.
Watch out for those lipsticks
Which are supposed to stay longer.
If your lipstick stays longer, it is
Because of the higher content of lead.
Here ! is the test you can do yourself:
1. Put some lipstick on your hand.
2. Use a Gold ring to scratch on the lipstick.
3. If the lipstick colour changes to black,
Then you know the lipstick contains lead.

Please send this information to all your girlfriends,
Wives and female family members.
This information is being circulated at
Walter Reed Army Medical Centre.

**Dioxin Carcinogens cause cancer,
Especially breast cancer

After reading the email... I look for further info via the internet and I came across to this link :

Well ... do surf the link if you want to know the info that I've found.

It leaves me in total BLANK!

To all females out there ... what are your concern.... of course cosmetic helps us to look better heh?

Feng Shui : Is It?

I never implement the Feng Shui in decorating our home because we do not have the Chinese blood (We believed that Feng Shui only works for the Chinese!).But recently, something triggers my mind to decorate our home with some ‘good’ paintings. Then it crosses my mind to add some Feng Shui tips in order to get the ‘luck’ that it may bring.

Feng Shui is an ancient art of decorating your home so that you promote happiness, health, and luck. It was first started in the Far East, but Feng Shui is now very popular among the Western civilization. Not everyone believes in Feng Shui decorating, but the tricks really do work. There are different reasons behind the benefits than what may have been originally believed, but the results are the same.

Here are some tips given to us when redecorating our home to fit a Feng Shui lifestyle:

1. Boost your mood with a mirror- By placing one mirror in a room, you'll find that positive energy is produced instantly because a mirror can brighten a dark room and make small, cramped spaced appear more spacious.

* Put a mirror near the stove is said to double your opportunities to make more money.

2. Achieve personal success with flowers- Fresh flowers boost your chances to create wealth, but you can even add a picture or painting of flowers, as well, to help begin to create a world of opportunities. It's actually been studied that women who had flowers in their homes just for a week reported happier moods with less depression and more compassion for others. Flowers can also boost creativity so you can find more creative means to solve problems.

3. Earn money with a fountain- Because water represents luck, energy, and wealth, you want to add a small indoor fountain by the front door, which can open up your opportunities. The water droplets can produce mood-boosting negative ions which trigger the release of feel-good serotonin in the brain, making you more likely to go after opportunities.

* Since water represents money, you want to fix leak sinks and pipes as soon as they happen because a leak means that your money is slowly draining out of your bank account.

4. Feel happy with a single picture- Place a picture of your loved one(s) by your bed because Feng Shui believes that the first thing you see in the morning and the last thing you see before you fall asleep will have a profound impact on your life. By looking at loved ones, it triggers your brain to release oxytocin, which is the "love" hormone, which makes your feel happy and secured. When you see a positive image, you will have a better mood all day long.

5. Create harmony with fruit- The kitchen represents togetherness, health, and prosperity, so you want to place a bowl of fresh fruit on the kitchen table to create harmony and success. You especially want to include oranges because they are seen to bring good luck. Because the fruit is available, it makes people more likely to eat healthy and skip junk food, which can be the strongest predictor of academic achievement, self-esteem, and future success. Plus the nutrients in the fruit improve energy, mood, mental functioning, and response to stress.

6. Reap your rewards with plants- Plants can counteract the lose of money and energy, especially when in the bathroom. Plants will not only brighten up the bathroom, but they will trap all positive energy so that it doesn't flow away. Because plants filter out pollutants and boost pure oxygen content in the air, they really can improve your energy, which is why having live plants in the bathroom is important because you typically use the most chemicals, the plants easily rid the space of the toxins, which can leave you more alert and health.

7. Feel loved with pillows- Arrange your pillows nicely next to each other in the corners of the bed or couch because the arrangement can intensify emotion and affection because you feel more secure and relaxed. By using overstuffed pillows, you are subconsciously projecting comfort and security, as well as calmness when just looking at them. Pillows create the feeling of coziness and warmth.
