Ooh la la...

Yeah, i feel good..bla bla bla
sounds familiar, rite? i know u know...heheh
i'm feeling great at diz moment, xtau lah ptg2 jap lagi cane.
but Alhamdulillah, i managed not to sleep after subuh diz morning, which is something difficult for me...maybe pekena tea pg td, ni xleh tdoq ni...huhuhu

tp my stomach pedih sket la due to lauk yg sgt hot and spicy i ate for lunch yesterday. (rojak betol ayat die nih) nvm.

Yesterday was the first time i tried petai!!!! And it was like "boleh tahan la" xde la xley telan..hahaha...satu lagi kejayaan bagi saya.ngee
Petai or its scientific name Parkia Speciosa, is found usually in sambal ikan bilis and any other sambal la... before this, petai was like a no-no to me...i didn't like it and never tried it before...maybe bcoz of its strong smell it developed after it was digested..enough of this...actually, i wud like to share some interesting facts about petai that many may not know bout it...

Jeng jeng jeng...

Petai for some reason has been shown to overcome some illnesses such as:

According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND among people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating petai. This is because petai contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.

Girls, forget the pills - eat petai. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood
glucose levels, which can affect your mood.

High in iron, petai can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood
and so helps in cases of anemia.

Blood Pressure:
This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it the perfect to beat blood pressure. So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration have just allowed the petai industry to make official claims for the fruit's ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.

Brain Power:
Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by
making pupils more alert. (Jom, ajar adik2 o future babies =P makan petai)

High in fiber, including petai in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.

One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a petai milkshake, sweetened with honey. The petai calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.

Morning Sickness:
Snacking on petai between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness. (OMG! could anyone snack on diz fruit on its own?!?!)

Mosquito bites:
Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of the petai skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.

Petai is high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system.

Researchers found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs.
The report concluded that, to avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours to keep levels steady.

Petai is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of
its soft texture and smoothness. It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in
over-chronicler cases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.

Temperature control:
Many other cultures see petai as a "cooling" fruit that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers.

Petai can also help people trying to give up smoking. The B6, B12 they contain, as well as the potassium and magnesium found in them, help the body recover from the effects of nicotine withdrawal. Yea!!! (Sape nak stop smoking, silakan makan petai sbg terapi. Ahaks)

Potassium is a vital mineral, which helps normalize the heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain and regulates your body's water balance. When we are stressed, our metabolic rate rises, thereby reducing our potassium levels. These can be rebalanced with the help of a high-potassium petai snack.

According to research in "The New England Journal of Medicine, " eating
petai as part of a regular dietcan cut the risk of death by strokes by as much as 40%"

Sooo, what do u think now? it really does change how u look at petai rite??

If you compare it to an Apple, it has four times the protein, twice the carbohydrates, three times the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals. It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods around. So, why not change the famous phrase to,

A petai a day keeps the doctor away =)

BEWARE of microwaved water!!!

Hello.morning sunshine =) okay, today i've an interesting topic to talk about. this is bout a dangerous that a microwave oven can do to u. This is serious kay. xmen2 ni...huhu

I bet every household has a microwave oven, aite? we use it to reheat or defrost our meals. And for those who are health concious, they usually use mic-ovens for cooking. But do u know that this household appliance can do harm to u, if do not use properly?

Here is one case about a guy met wit an accident when he heated a cup of water. i got this from the forwarded email from my BF. Thanx dear =)

"A 26-year old guy decided to have a cup of coffee. He took a cup of water and put it in the microwave to heat it up (something that he had done numerous times before).

I am not sure how long he set the timer for, but he told me he wanted to bring the water to a boil. When the timer shut the oven off, he removed the cup from the oven. As he looked into the cup, he noted that the water was not boiling, but instantly the water in the cup 'blew-up' into his face.

The cup remained intact until he threw it out of his hand but all the water had flown out into his face due to the build up of energy. His whole face is blistered and he has 1st and 2nd degree burns to his face, which may leave scarring. He also may have lost partial sight in his left eye.. While at the hospital, the doctor who was attending to him stated that this is fairly common occurrence and water (alone) should never be heated in a microwave oven. If water is heated in this manner, something should be placed in the cup to diffuse the energy such as: a wooden stir stick, tea bag, etc. It is however a much safer choice to boil the water in a teakettle."

General Electric 's (GE) response:
Thanks for contacting us. I will be happy to assist you. The e-mail that you received is correct. Micro waved water and other liquids do not always bubble when they reach the boiling point. They can actually get superheated and not bubble at all. The superheated liquid will bubble up out of the cup when it is moved or when something like a spoon or teabag is put into it. To prevent this from happening and causing injury, do not heat any liquid for more than two minutes per cup. After heating, let the cup stand in the microwave for thirty seconds before moving it or adding anything into it.

So readers, make sure u guys do not reheat your drink for a long time. If you need to boil the water, better use the kettle. it's much safer. And remember, prevention is better than cure! =)
