Degree° Life

Degree life really much burdens than my foundation life...

Last time in foundation, I can happily enjoy my weekend in house doing nothing or just to pass my free time by surfing nets or doing something useless to kill my time =)

Now, I will have to finish up my lab reports, assignments or many other things during my weekends =(

Each subjects roughly will have 5 assignments each. I got 5 subjects this semester. 5x5= 25! I got 14 weeks. Average 1 week 2 assignments? I'm not a hardworking student. This will make me suffocate =(

These are some of reasons I abandoned my blog for quite a long time. Another reason is... I don't have idea what to write LOL

Anyway, Street Party held last Wednesday was awesome. I didn't take any pictures because I dint bring camera =X If anyone interested to view some of the pictures, u can view it at Raymond or Ken Pun's blog =)

*I wish I have more courage *

H1N1 swine flu in msia

1st case of H1N1 flu reported in msia yesterday =( the seriousness of this disease can be seen thru the newspaper and TV reports everyday... H1N1 news takes the majority from other political, economic and social news...

Some are the info i search online...

What is H1N1 (swine flu)?
H1N1 (referred to as “swine flu” early on) is a new influenza virus causing illness in people. This new virus was first detected in people in the United States in April 2009. Other countries, including Mexico and Canada, have reported people sick with this new virus. This virus is spreading from person-to-person, probably in much the same way that regular seasonal influenza viruses spread.

What are the signs and symptoms of this virus in people?
The symptoms of this new H1N1 flu virus in people are similar to the symptoms of seasonal flu and include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. A significant number of people who have been infected with this virus also have reported diarrhea and vomiting. Also, like seasonal flu, severe illnesses and death has occurred as a result of illness associated with this virus.

Prevention and Treatment

What can I do to protect myself from getting sick?
There is no vaccine available right now to protect against this new H1N1 virus. There are everyday actions that can help prevent the spread of germs that cause respiratory illnesses like influenza.

Take these everyday steps to protect your health:

  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand cleaners are also effective.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
  • Stay home if you are sick for 7 days after your symptoms begin or until you have been symptom-free for 24 hours, whichever is longer. This is to keep from infecting others and spreading the virus further.

Other important actions that you can take are:

  • Follow public health advice regarding school closures, avoiding crowds and other social distancing measures.
  • Be prepared in case you get sick and need to stay home for a week or so; a supply of over-the-counter medicines, alcohol-based hand rubs, tissues and other related items might could be useful and help avoid the need to make trips out in public while you are sick and contagious.

If you are sick, limit your contact with other people as much as possible. If you are sick, stay home for 7 days after your symptoms begin or until you have been symptom-free for 24 hours, whichever is longer. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. Put your used tissue in the waste basket. Then, clean your hands, and do so every time you cough or sneeze.

What is the best technique for washing my hands to avoid getting the flu?
Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs. Wash with soap and water or clean with alcohol-based hand cleaner. CDC recommends that when you wash your hands -- with soap and warm water -- that you wash for 15 to 20 seconds. When soap and water are not available, alcohol-based disposable hand wipes or gel sanitizers may be used. You can find them in most supermarkets and drugstores. If using gel, rub your hands until the gel is dry. The gel doesn't need water to work; the alcohol in it kills the germs on your hands.

What should I do if I get sick?
If you live in areas where people have been identified with new H1N1 flu and become ill with influenza-like symptoms, including fever, body aches, runny or stuffy nose, sore throat, nausea, or vomiting or diarrhea, you should stay home and avoid contact with other people, except to seek medical care.

If you have severe illness or you are at high risk for flu complications, contact your health care provider or seek medical care. Your health care provider will determine whether flu testing or treatment is needed

If you become ill and experience any of the following warning signs, seek emergency medical care.

In children, emergency warning signs that need urgent medical attention include:

  • Fast breathing or trouble breathing
  • Bluish or gray skin color
  • Not drinking enough fluids
  • Severe or persistent vomiting
  • Not waking up or not interacting
  • Being so irritable that the child does not want to be held
  • Flu-like symptoms improve but then return with fever and worse cough

In adults, emergency warning signs that need urgent medical attention include:

  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen
  • Sudden dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Severe or persistent vomiting
  • Flu-like symptoms improve but then return with fever and worse cough

Happy Mother's Day

Today is a universal festival celebrate by everyone in the world =)

Happy Mother's Day, mommy!

On mother's side, as a tradition or what we practice since long long time ago, we will celebrate Mother's day for my grandma in a restaurant. While on father's side, they normally do not emphasize on Mother's day celebration.

This year, the restaurant is less packed than previous years. Maybe because of the economic crisis. But what I think is, no matter what happened, this is a great opportunity for whole family to reunion and eat together, just like the Reunion Dinner on Chinese New Year eve. The important issue is reunion. =)

While in my house, we will celebrate Mother's day also. 4 of us will treat mommy for taking care us since we are young. Although we know that, the dinner is nothing compared to what she have done for past many years. Thank you.

Now let the pictures speak. Random pics took by my sis during yesterday night. =)

sorry, shark!

My mommy and her mommy =)

Me, my siblings and cousins.
