It Is Well With My Soul

I attended a wake service recently. The lady didn't have any critical illness and it was a rather sudden death. But she kept the house rather neat and clean. She even informed on which portrait she wants to use in her funeral when she was still alive. 

So, I have decided that this will be the song that has to be played during my wake service next time. Do remember.

Indulgence

I've been treating myself well lately.

Got two pairs of FitFlop. 

To my defence, there's promotion and I had been wanting to get them for years. Or maybe months. 

Went for my long wanted Thai oil massage too. Simply awesome!

Heh.

Today is a very special day. I attended a course with my partner and I felt that we have learnt so much about each other in a couple of hours.

The art of communication.

Hope for more good to come! 

Time to go! *yawn* Good night kawan :)

Sprinting On... 2016!

Ageing - It's starting to scare me.


2015 was rather eventful. 
  1. I've went to Krabi, Bangkok, and Taiwan with the same person. After every trip that we went, I felt that we have gotten one step closer to understand more about each other. Communication and accommodating are the keys.
  2. New chubby little niece - Melanie. She is such a blessing to my family :)

  3. Signed up for gym! Finally, there's one check for my 2015 resolution - to exercise once every month :D
  4. Being the committee for MYAF. It really opens my eyes and strengthen my bible knowledge.
  5. Getting a place of my own.
  6. Another achievement - climbed Broga Hill.

  7. Attended three awesome kawans' weddings. Practically spent hours/days to help out with preparation for one and flew to Kuching & Sibu to attend another two.

  8. Managed to stick to the same Company throughout the year! *pats*
  9. Gained 1 kg (T_T ")  I am supposed to lose 5 kgs :(
  10. Drove my family to Bukit Tinggi and countdown with mom and bro! Too bad dad was sleeping.

So, how did I do so far? OK, I guess. But, if I follow what I wrote for my 2015 resolution, I would be failing miserably. 

Time to think of practical resolution for 2016...... 

Coming soon! :D

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!
