Cervical Cancer Prevention

Trust - reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, surety, etc., of a person or thing; confidence.

Few years ago, my elder brother briefed me on the importance of cervical cancer prevention. Since then, the thought of getting HPV vaccine has always been lingering in my mind. Do you know that early detection, screening and vaccination can reduce the risk of getting cervical cancer by 70%

The HPV vaccines are more effectively for those who have yet to perform any sexual intercourse. There are two types of HPV vaccines: cervarix and gardasil. Both protect us against two main HPV types: HPV-16 & HPV-18 (which cause 70% of cervical cancers, 80% of anal cancers, 60% of vaginal cancers, and 40% of vulvar cancers)

Gardasil is slighly more expensive because it also immune us against HPV-6 & HPV-11, which causes 90% of genital warts. Both cervarix and gardasil consist of three doses, which are to be completed within 6 months. 1st dose -> (after 1 or 2 months) 2nd dose -> (after 6 months from the 1st dose) 3rd dose. 

I chose cervarix by GSK because it is a lot cheaper. My first dose was in Sibu, which costs RM190/dose. I surveyed around my neighbourhood but they only offer gardasil at RM300/dose. Then I found Crown Clinic on the website. I called and glad to find that they have many ready stock and only charge RM195/dose.

So, what are you waiting for? Go and get yourself vaccinated!

A Dose Of My Life

  1. I am overdose with Cooking Fever again. Should really s.t.o.p. playing!
  2. I am promoted! To be an aunt. My little niece is super cute :D
  3. My little niece is hospitalized right now. Her body is a tad yellowish. Appreciate your prayer for her to be healthy soon.
  4. I still have a presentation slides to prepare but I am feeling very sluggish right now.
  5. I realize I use a lot of "I". The "I" syndrome. It's the "I" generation. I think "I" blend in quite well.
  6. I kinda miss hanging out with my friends.
  7. I felt like I couldn't cope with my life anymore. I hope I can spend more time in talking to my family, calling my sister, facetime with my niece, hang out with my friends, catch up with my bible study, be more efficient in my secretariat work in church, etc etc. 
  8. It's the second month I sign up for my gym membership. I feel a lot healthier now.
  9. I drag going for my 3rd personal training trial session because my trainer kept asking me to purchase a programme with her. 
  10. I should go back to preparing my slides. Good night!

It's Been A While...


I survived the 40 days fasting from Candy Crush and Cooking Fever. It was supposed to be NECF 40 days fast and pray; but the pray and devotion part didn't work out that well. :(  

It's been a while. I wonder I should come back more often. Writing helps me ponder on my life, also to record my memories.

We shall see...

Gallbladder Cleansing

It's 'in' right now. Most of my family members had done it, so I thought I should try it out as well.

Bought the gallbladder cleansing pack from 'Eu Yan Sang'. It costs around RM200.
They will give you two yellow packs, which contains:-

  • Eight bottles of apple juice 
  • One bottle of lemon juice
  • One bottle of olive oil
  • One pack of salt
I am on my second day thus far and it's torturous not being able to eat whenever, whatever food that I love. Supposedly I should fast from fried, spicy, and cold food. But.... the journey hasn't been smooth so far. Hopefully, I will sustain ><
