Breathing Therapy

Someone email me the following:

The nose has a left and a right side.

We use both to inhale and exhale.

But they are different.

And you can feel the difference.

When you have a headache, try to close your right nose and use your left nose to breathe.

After sometime, your headache will go.

When you feel tired, do the reverse; close your left nose and breathe through your right nose.

After a while, you will feel your mind more refreshed.

The right side belongs to 'hot', so it gets heated up easily.

The left side belongs to 'cold'.

This natural therapy without medication may be effective for you.

So, why not give it a try?


In 1919 when the flu killed 40 million people, there was this doctor who visited the many farmers to see if he could help them combat the flu. Many of the farmers and their family had contracted it, and many died.

The doctor came upon this one farmer and to his surprise, everyone was very healthy. When the doctor asked what the farmer was doing that was different, the wife replied that she had placed an unpeeled onion in a dish in the rooms of the home. The doctor couldn't believe it and asked if he could have one of the onions and place it under the microscope. She gave him one and when he did this, he did find the flu virus in the onion. It obviously absorbed the bacteria, therefore, keeping the family healthy.

A hairdresser in NZ said that several years ago many of her employees were coming down with the flu and so were many of her customers. The next year she placed several bowls with onions around in her shop. To her surprise, none of her staff got sick.

The moral of the story is to buy some onions and place them in bowls around our home. If we work at a desk, place one or two in our office or under our desk or even on top somewhere. Try it and see what happens.

A man who had contacted pneumonia was very ill. Someone cut both ends off an onion, put one end on a fork and then placed the forked end into an empty jar. He placed the jar next to the sick patient at night. The onion was black in the morning from the germs and the patient began to feel better.

But... Please be reminded that LEFTOVER ONIONS are poisonous!

Some of us don’t use a whole onion at one time. We save the other half for later use.

Onions are a huge magnet for bacteria, especially uncooked onions.

We should never plan to keep a portion of a sliced onion; it's already contaminated enough just by being cut open.

If we take the leftover onion and cook it like crazy, we will probably be okay.

But if we slice that leftover onion and put on our sandwich, we're asking for trouble.

Let us be very careful about onions from now on.

It is dangerous to cut onion and use it to cook the next day.

It becomes highly poisonous for even a single night and creates toxic bacteria which may cause adverse stomach infections because of excess bile secretions, and even food poisoning.

Please pass it on to all you love and care.

FIFA 2010 Soccer Games

The FIFA World Cup 2010 is underway!

It has many upsets and twists so far.

Many people have followed the games, and have stayed through the night for many days.

You can find tired and sleepy faces everyday everywhere; in the streets, in the offices, shopping centers, markets, eatery outlets or public buildings.

You can see clusters of people talking, smiling and laughing together, all about FIFA World Cup 2010.

These are wonderful, entertaining, enlightening and heartfelt stories of the various matches.

Suddenly people from all work of life have become football experts overnight, commenting on the outcome and prediction of the matches.

I have watched many matches but I’m not excited yet. May be I will become committed and stay up all night beginning from the quarter-final or semi-final matches. I don’t know.

Nevertheless, I enjoy watching the skills, tricks, and drills displayed by the players; I enjoy watching the audience’s passion, enthusiasm, dedication, and supporting cheers.

But I am sick of the dirty tricks and foul play, the abusing and filthy language, and the outrageous and improper actions in public places.

I enjoy watching the genuine country spirit and pride, the dedication and respect for the game, and the supportive and appreciative roles of the audience.

FIFA World Cup 2010 is great.

Enjoy the games.

May the best team win.

How Many Letters “F” Are There?

This is really cool.

Test Your Brain.

Count every letter "F" you can find in the following text:


How many letters “F” can you find?

The answer is 6.

Read it again!

Try to find the 6 letters “F” in the sentence.

Can you find them all?

Why is it you can’t?

The reason is because the brain cannot really process the word "OF".

Isn’t it incredible?

Go back and look again!

Anyone who can count all 6 letters "F" on the first go is a genius.

Three is normal.

Four is quite rare.

Try your friends.

It will drive them crazy!

And keep them occupied for several minutes!

So the next time before you brag about how careful and precise you are, please give it a second thought.

Internet Connection Problem

It was 4 in the morning when I sprang up from my bed.

Waking up early in the morning has become my daily routine these days.

Some said as we grow older, we sleep shorter; and I know it’s true for me.

After washing my face with soap, I powered up my laptop and planned about what to do today. I decided to surf the internet.

The connection icon in the taskbar was showing excellent signal strength, but it was blinking once in a while. I started browsing with Google Chrome, and discovered every page was showing “This webpage is not available”.

I tried various means to reconnect, but failed.

Getting rather frustrated, I tried to do other things. But once in a while, I came back and tried my luck on the internet.

It was 7 a.m. when my son woke up with sleepy red eyes. He informed me about the connection problem since 2 a.m.

We decided to lodge a complaint to our Internet Service Provider.

To our surprise, we were informed that 80% of the subscribers in my State were facing the same connection problem and 18,000 registered users were still affected. We were told to wait until 10 a.m. when the service might be restored.

My eldest daughter woke up at 7.30 a.m. and grumbling. She also complained about her online problem at midnight.

My wife brought me a mug of hot tea without sugar.

Talking through about the internet problem, we had a good laugh.

Going online has become part and parcel of our lives every day. I smiled ruefully.

Life would be tough without internet for everyone.

It is 11.30 a.m. I lodged another complaint, only to be informed that 31,000 registered users were affected.

So we spent most of our time watching Astro TV, shopping, jogging, talking and relaxing, since all of us were having our holidays.

Nevertheless, the internet connection was still bugging us.

It was near midnight or early the next morning that we had our internet connection back.

Oh, just how we have become addicted to the internet these days. Sigh!
