Feeding mums  

Posted by the Writer

Scientists have proven that breast milk is the healthiest, most nutritious meal a baby can take right? If you think a little sci-fi, maybe breast milk has healing powers. Like you'd grow a limb back again if you lost it. Can you imagine how much it hurts when your baby is feeding? Guys need to understand that child-rearing and being a stay at home mum is terrible.

Natural fat burner  

Posted by the Writer

You know what's good fat burners look like? They move a lot, have chambers, worth a lot to a person and are... wet. They're God's given gift to us, our hearts. Sure, cardio workouts burn fat and all but do you look like a person who would get up and exercise? No, I didn't think so. **At this point, a man in a trench coat approaches you with several bottles of fat burning pills. And then you crumble and buy a dozen bottles. The end.

Galaxy Tablet

You know, I was actually thinking of getting an iPad but I just hate that it's so expensive and that I might have almost joined the yuppie bandwagon. Then I hear that there's the Galaxy Tablet PC which funny enough is categorized as a smartphone in some stores. Maybe because of it tiny size (not too tiny though)... I don't know how much it costs but it's definitely going to be cheaper than an iPad.

Dog training  

Posted by the Writer

What are the secrets to dog training? I was always curious as to how people train dogs. How do you even teach the puppy to do something it's never done before?
Now, due to this video circulating on Facebook, we all know what we shouldn't do when training dogs. It's not right and you should be stoned to death for it. There's always the right, civil but super effective way.

Green shopping  

Posted by the Writer

To put it simply, buying your groceries online is good for the environment in that you don't contribute to that much more pollutants in the air by driving back and forth to the store. That's called green shopping. With green shopping, the store sends the groceries straight to your home, eliminating the need for you to drive your car out. But if someone wanted to mess this utopian idea up, they'd say that the heat generated from the servers required to provide you the online ordering and delivery system and the air-conditioning or ventilation required to keep the server room temperature low contributes to the pollution of earth. So really, you can't win. But let's not complicate things. If green shopping's something you can do to make a difference, then just do it.

Getaways

I'm in need of a vacation. Thank goodness it's CNY!
Wouldn't I like to surf me some www.bransongetaways.com? Yep, I sure do.
Now don't judge me because it's only been about 3 weeks since I started working but boy oh boy, am I stressed out about work. The thing with newbies is that you want so bad to perform and prove yourself that you stress yourself out and you start thinking about vacations. Vicious.

Appropriation of the randomest things  

Posted by the Writer

Ah, receipt printers. Wouldn't that be a random but fleetingly great gift? If you're a romantic, you could use it in your little games with your other half. I mean, even if it's called a receipt printer, you don't have to print a receipt on it right? Ooh, you could print coupons! Now you have so many things you can do to liven up your love life...

Car insurance  

Posted by the Writer

I'm not sure how car insurance purchases are done here but I assume you get to choose your own provider aside from the ones offered by your car salesmen. I suppose most people who couldn't care less may go for a ready option but others may take the extra effort and scour the net for car insurance reviews. And of course, some days the net is your best friend and some days it decides to be a bitch. But really, these things, you want to pick an insurer that specializes in car insurance. They're usually your best bet.

Catch some Zzs with hormones  

Posted by the Writer

At first I thought this melatonin-majig was a skin pigmentation name but lo and behold, melatonin is a hormone that helps you sleep! It supposedly increases sleep efficiency and makes you sleep longer. It's not regulated by the US Federal Drug Administration though. I could've used this during my first few days of work. I was just laying in bed, closing my eyes and my mind racing. What the heck was I thinking about any way?!

Hey, I think fat burners work  

Posted by the Writer

Most skeptical people like myself often wonder, "do fat burners work"?
I see these vibrating machines on tv and think, "oh man, here we go again. I hope mom doesn't get tempted into buying this crap again".
Well, mom did buy one of those things. Specifically, she bought that WWF championship belt-like device that vibrates all night long.
Now, I'm a little more open minded because mom DID lose weight. However, like most dieters and rich people, they see results and somehow end up ditching the device, never to use it again. So all I want to say is, "if it works, don't stop! What's wrong with you?". I love you, mom.

Think ahead  

Posted by the Writer

At some point, you've got to ask yourself, "what am I going to do, if one day, I'm disabled and unable to provide for my family"?
Hopefully, your answer is to think, "thank goodness I applied for SSDI benefits (social security disability insurance) before this imaginary disability happened".
Unfortunately, most young adults don't think about this issue because they think they're as healthy as a horse. And I don't have to tell you why it's especially important if you have a young family that you consider total and permanent disability covers and SSDI.

Neck acne woes  

Posted by the Writer

This video made the rounds on Facebook a while back. Remember the acne on the neck video? GROSSSS! Check it:
Makes me want to check my neck for pimples and acne and apply products generously to "prevent" them. Shudder.
Poor people. How do you even get acne anyway? Must be tough not being able to wear tanks on a hot summer's day without feeling self-conscious. Similarly, imagine scientists having to be exposed to neck acne all day long trying to find a cure to cure the feelings of pubescent children.

Comfy comfy bedding  

Posted by the Writer

Did you know bedding in Malaysia costs a nuclear bomb? (To "cost a bomb" just doesn't really describe how incredibly overpriced things are nowadays).

It's almost twice or thrice the cost of bedding in the States. That's why, when my bro returned, mom got him to bring some threads home. Besides, customers are spoilt for choice with peacock alley bedding, alashan cashmere, anichini, etc. We have Jean Paul something here. If it isn't related to the French fashion designed, I'm leaning towards "convinced it was a local brand with a French name to give it the elevation it needs to become premium".

Good bedding is so important nowadays. It really does help you sleep because it's so comfortable. Don't be afraid to spend on good bedding. We'll buy wholesale and share the shipping cost. It'll be cheaper!

Exercising the safe way  

Posted by the Writer

I'm sure I've mentioned countless times before that when I was younger I've always wanted some form of fitness equipment at home because I thought the streets aren't safe for people to jog any more. And then suddenly it makes sense to buy thousands worth of metal, aluminium, whatever and store it at home and run into it every now and then giving you bruises. But of course, there are products that fold up nicely into a cupboard but funny enough, year after year, the equipment just doesn't get smaller. But I digress. I do believe that getting fitness equipment just to exercise indoors because the streets aren't safe is good enough a reason. Just as long as the thing folds into a smaller piece!

Think of the lavatory applications  

Posted by the Writer

Despite what the Mythbusters say, you can still conduct experiments at home. It's just better not to. The only thing stopping you is your common sense. But also because you can buy engine driven pumps online. And there are so many types of pumps. E.g. dewatering pumps, trash pumps, solids handling pumps, etc. Definitely not for inexperienced users and tight wallets. The cheapest one could set you back almost 330 dollars. Still... can't help but want one for play.

daydreaming bummer  

Posted by the Writer

At some point in my life, when I was bored, bumming and not picking my arse up, I considered getting a psp. *SNORTS*, yeah right! How am I going to get one without income?

Then like all other things, my interested waned and I thought about other media devices I could potentially buy to entertain myself in moments of boredom or social awkwardness. Now, it's the Blackberry. The good news is, I'm employed! :D
