Our society nowadays is increasingly concern about health issues. Gym rooms and fitness centers are growing like mushrooms everywhere. But does exercise alone help us to be fit and healthy? How much do we know about our food? Being a ‘food lover’ myself, I used to pay less attention to what goes into my mouth until my late father was in comma for 2 weeks in 2003 due to heart attack, renal failure, stroke and diabetic. He once said….. “biar mati makan, jangan mati tak makan.” Yup, he was a food lover just like me but I guess, he lost control over his eating habit.
Besides these diseases, cancer is also becoming a common health problem. Not only can it be fatal sometimes, but modern medication has never been able to find a cure for it. Again, how much do we know about cancer and what do we do to prevent from getting it?
Since ‘eating’ is part of our lives, nothing much can be done about this… I mean, we HAVE to eat in order to live anyway (but not LIVE to EAT eh!). However, we can always take preventive measures by ensuring that we only eat good food (so guys, say bye bye to junks!).
Have you heard about antioxidants? Antioxidants interact with and stabilize free radicals – free radicals are found in our environment like pollutants, smoke, chemicals which have been linked to the causes of cancer, arthritis, heart diseases. Therefore, stabilizing free radicals will prevent damages (not totally, though) to our body cells. In short, antioxidants are important and there are hundreds of antioxidants available from various plants and vegetables (of course I wouldn’t know every single one of them).
According to doctors, based on considerable laboratory evidence, antioxidants may slow or possibly prevent the development of cancer. Antioxidants can be found in fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains and some other sources. Below are some of the common sources of antioxidants:
Now that you know what's good for you... no more excuses eh!!!! Have fun eating! I know I always do!
You don't need a lot of pieces to dress rich, only five or six that are interchangeable and of superior quality. A structured jacket like this solid black velvet blazer with contrasting trim and a four-button closure, a pair of beautifully tailored trousers, a little cap-sleeved pleated top or a creamy top cardigan will do.
People who know fashion wear pieces that drape gracefully, creating that telltale elegant silhouette. Seams should lie smoothly, collars should be pristine, and pleats should be crisp, even and smooth. Skirts will have a pretty swing to them. Everything should fit the contours of your body just right.
Designer Lauren Moffatt believes dressing well means surrounding yourself in only the finest fabric. "Aside from the fact that better-quality fabric feels amazing against your skin" she said, "it retains its shape and symmetry and won't bunch up or cling to your body in odd ways." So embrace those cashmeres, merino wools, silks and fine cottons.
If you own a high-quality piece from seasons past that just needs a bit of tweaking, don't toss it, recycle it. For example, you can remove bows or other "too-last-year" flourishes such as extravagant ruffles, take up a hem or remove those exaggerated shoulder pads; just be creative!
Consignment shops are another goldmine for discovering valuable, modern items at a fraction of the cost, and unlike with eBay, you can try them on. Look for well-constructed pieces made from wool, silk, cotton and linen.
The benchmark of dressing rich has to be the shoes and handbag, so pay special attention with your choices: no ragged heels or dirty scruffs on shoes, and no busted zippers or ripped seams on bags. And FYI, you might want to think twice about carrying Louis Vuitton; imitations are so ubiquitous these days, everybody may assume it's a fake anyway.
