posted on January 11th, 2008 ·


Today, let’s look at few of the important yet simple tips for women to help in diet control.

  1. Though you may enjoy cooking and want to share your food with others, you are not obliged to help others to finish whatever others have not finished, particularly your kids’ leftover.
  2. In some restaurants, instead of order regular portions, you can opt for smaller portions so that you do not have to force yourself to finish whatever being served. (more…)

THIN – If It Takes Dying to Get There, So Be It

posted on January 9th, 2008 ·


Eating disorders affect millions of people worldwide, especially in developed countries. As many as five million people in the United States and more than 10% of those diagnosed with anorexia nervosa.

Last weekend, I had the chance to watch a HBO documentary, THIN, at friend’s place. She got the DVD from her cousin sister studying in the US. The film is good. But, don’t expect it to be another Hollywood production. It is not a movie.

I did some reading about the documentary. Photographer Lauren Greenfield went inside a Florida treatment center to tell the stories of patients who are literally dying to be thin. This HBO documentary highlighted the stories of four women between ages 15 and 30 who are undergoing treatment for the illness. Lauren Greenfield reveals what she discovered there and share with the audience the issues underlying the patients’ illness. (more…)

posted on January 7th, 2008 ·


After McDonald’s started serving supper with its 24-hour operating hours in Malaysia, Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) Malaysia has followed suit.

Not only that, KFC Malaysia has gone into breakfast market too starting December 2007.

As expected, KFC’s breakfast menu is not only Western oriented with sausage and chicken muffin, but also with porridge and even Nasi Lemak (a local popular breakfast). While McDonald’s focuses in marketing its primary beef menu, KFC is centered around chicken. (more…)

Chest Workout (3) – Incline Dumbbell Press

posted on January 5th, 2008 ·


When I first started weight training, my upper part of chest (upper pectorals) did not develop well. I just did not bother until I realized that gym goers have better shape of chests. One of the workouts meant for this part of muscle is incline dumbbell press. This exercise is good in developing and refining the upper chest, front and side of the shoulders, sides of the chest and the triceps too. These muscles are crucial in all upward and forward-reaching pushing and throwing actions. If you are a boxer or basketball players, you will appreciate the importance of having these muscles being built strong.

What You Should Know Before Joining Adventure Race (4) – The Race

posted on January 3rd, 2008 ·

This post on is the fourth post and the last one on the What You Should Know Before Joining Adventure Race Series. In this post, the guest blogger, Ee-Van, shared his experience in different adventure races with us.


Most of the time, the race would involve Running, Cycling, Technical Rope work and sometimes kayaking or river boarding. The race organizers have usually planned the route months before the race itself. There is a lot of safety and margin of error which they allows when they plan for the race. So, I would say, single-handedly, it is better to enter a race which the organizers has experience with! My worse experience is at this race in Gopeng where the organizers were so unsure themselves we all know the race would be a disaster. And true enough, they did not even have enough finisher to actually claim the prize as the race started an hour later but the cut off time remains. (more…)

How To Build A Body Like Will Smith

posted on December 31st, 2007 ·


Just watched I am Legend. It is a movie about the last man alive in a city overrun with mutants. Let’s not talk about the movie for now. Will Smith’s workout is the one I want to write about this time. Ever since the movie of Independence Day, I realized that Will Smith has changed much on his body shape. From the show of Ali to iRobot and the recent I Am Legend, I have to admire his effort in getting in shape.

Below are some of the information I summarized from different sources in the Net about his workout approaches.
