CONCERNED ABOUT TOO MANY CARBS IN YOUR DIET?

For those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health. It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies.
1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
5. The Germans drink a lot of beers and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

CONCLUSION
Eat and drink what you like.
Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

A Very Touching TV Advertisement

A TV advertisement I saw on Internet. The camera was focus on the a little pretty girl with long blond hair, she walked to her parent’s room and found they were not there and she went to the mirror looking at herself, then she holding a pair of scissors and began to cut her own hair. The door bell rang and the girl went to open the door, and she saw her parent with a little boy were so surprised looking at her ugly hair cut. The girl then put her hands opened with full of her own hair to the little boy. The boy put off his cap and with his thin face shown clearly and looked as a cancer boy with all his hair lost. He put the cap onto the girl’s head, the girl was smiling and put her hair on the little boy’s head, both kids were smiling to each other.

Movie

Watched few movies recently, 'In Good Company', 'Meet the Fockers', 'Get Shorty' and 'New York Minute', all of them are comedies but not of the same kind. I espeicially like 'Meet the Fockers' and 'Get Shorty', tho' 'Get Shorty' seems not a new film, the story is funny, kind of black comedy.
I didn't realize I had d/l so many films and I really have to free some more space of my h/d,... so as to d/l some new films...haha... still have some good films queuing to c, such as 'Aviator', 'Million dollars baby',... and Ah Lou reminded me, also have the Japanese Animation 'Full Metal Alchemist', sounds so interested after reading his blog...ohh..also the Korea drama '大長今'...
Sitting cosily, drinking a cup of tea and watching my favour movies. How nice!!

New Year

Yes, New Year is coming, it's not the New Year of 'Merry Christmas & Happy New Year', it's also not the Chinese New Year, it's the new financial year. We've to make a line between March and April and have a final cut. Have to write the staff appraisal reports, have to make review of the past year, have to make plans for the new year, set objectives, set targets for the coming year... doing all sorts of estimation..ai...what a troublesome & annoying New Year! (>.<)

Back Pay

Seems have signs to get back pay, hehe...am I too optimistic? Besides the $, I'm quite happy about that because the Gov will be more thoughtful before doing anything else that's against civil servants. Actually, it's really rude of them to deduct my salary..hehe...I expect we get better chance to win... Anyway, that's good to still have hope!... Wait and c the result on June....

Energy Save

Don't know since when, part of the lighting in the corridor of my office will auto turn off after 19:00 everyday for energy saving. I don't know the idea is come from mainland or not, u could c some of their shops turned on the light only when customer came in. um... will we have afternoon sleeping someday......

Professional

I've just got the cert of CISSP, that is CISS Professional. Now, I'm really a professional... I look at myself in the mirror to c if I look professional... um, seems look a bit more proffesional now.... is that superficial or navie!?.... whatsoever..
Althought, it's terrible to take the exam early in the morning and last for 6 hours, exhausted, esp to a owl like me, always want to sleep in the morning. It's over now and worth my 2 mths effort..as long as I can get it, it's worth.. (^_^)
However, I still haven't got any feedback from my office for reimbrusement of the exam fee. Will they really give me back the $$? ...um.. it's subject to the availability of the fund....(>.<)
