How to peel tomatoes

Counting my blessings

Today is my birthday and also the first day of Ramadan. I am in the last 30 series now and will be turning 40 next year...
Life has been a roller coaster of many ups and just as many downs.
I am blessed to be surrounded by my husband, mother and awesome children. I also have many great friends and people who look out and care for me as well as supportive relatives. My dear cousin who never fail to back me up and advice me.

Kisah benar Puan Lola dan adik OKU Firdaus

Kisah benar Puan Lola & Adik OKU : Muhammad Firdaus Dullah

~~~~~~~

Bismillah... petang tadi penulis ini (en Kamal Zawari)  dan isteri, Siti Salwa diberi keizinan Allah untuk melawat adik Muhammad Firdaus Dullah di Hospital Tuaku Jaafar, Seremban..

Pertamanya, saya mohon maaf jika post ini panjang, harap anda dapat bersabar dan baca kerana intipatinya adalah penting dan harap dapat di"share" kepada sesiapapun yang anda jumpa diluar mahupun Facebook friends list anda..

Of uncaring medical staff at the Selayang Hospital

Hospitals.. are supposedly a place where you get attended to, and get the chance to recover soon with the attention of caring medical personnels.
But sadly, this is not quite the case if you are dependent on government subsidized hospital care.
You are forced to wait for hours before getting any treatment.. And if you are lucky enough to get treatment, they cannot wait to kick you out as soon as you are slightly better.
My husband had a mild stroke back in March and he was admitted to the Selayang Hospital.
This stroke affected his left side alignment and also made his speech slurry.

Amazing photos from the past -must see

President Barack Obama, Marylin Monroe, Bill Gates, Osama Bin Laden and the list goes on and on.; It is really remarkable to see these famous people in a different light. These amazing images below,are really remarkable and I can't help wondering why they did not attract that much attention previously.
Enjoy....

Of birthdays and wishes

                 the good times

My sweet step daughter celebrated her 20th birthday today, 6 days earlier from her original birth date. In 8 days my niece will be 19 and I will be 39.

My sweet step daughter had a lovely birthday at the Concorde Shah Alam coffee house.. With close friends and many family members attending.

Benefits of eating dates

A product of the date palm and cultivated since approximately 6000 B.C, the date fruit is one of the sweetest fruits around and also happens to come in many different varieties. Although dates can be eaten fresh, the fruit is very often dried, resembling raisins or plums. But whether fresh or dry, the health benefits of dates are still just as plentiful.
dates 265x165 Health Benefits of Dates Promoting Heart, Brain, and Digestive HealthA product of the date palm and cultivated since approximately 6000 B.C, the date fruit is one of the sweetest fruits around and also happens to come in many different varieties. Although dates can be eaten fresh, the fruit is very often dried, resembling raisins or plums. But whether fresh or dry, the health benefits of dates are still just as plentiful.

Nutritional Content of Dates

If you’re looking for fiber, potassium, or copper, look no further than dates. While dates are rich in many vital nutrients and therefore offer many health benefits, the fruit is so small that you’ll need to consume a larger quantity to intake the necessary amount.

The amazing Lady's finger /Okra

The moment you cut Lady’s Finger, a sticky sap will ooze out. This sticky sap cannot be washed off by water and seems to increase with water contact. Believe me or not, this sticky sap is very beneficial to us. My husband is a diabetic and a family friend was the one who advised us to try this since she herself was doing this diligently and it helped with her blood sugar a lot.

An exciting morning pretending to be a masterchef...


Yours truly here had an exciting morning playing at being a chef. This happened at the Dumex Mamil event my colleague/ boss Mr Jocko signed me up for at the At 19 Culinary Studio along Jalan Dungun.
I turned up expecting a mundane event but was pleasantly surprised instead with the hands on activities we had to participate in..

In an effort to raise public awareness on gut health in children, Mamil, a brand of growing -up milk by Danone Dumex (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, recently launched Mamil "Let It Out", an educational campaign that aims to help mothers better understand the importance of gut health in children.

The campaign was hatched to address common digestive discomforts in children, which often lead to straining and passing of hard stools. From June to 10th August 2014, Mamil is conducting activities on gut health that will help educate and engage mothers, including road shows and learning sessions on the gut health in children's development.

Sunburnt....and the savior...

After spending a whole day in the water park, the other day with my little girl minus a sunblock which I being such a block head forgot to pack my sunblock and so I ended up with the mother of all sun burns.
My shoulders suffered the worse. Fortunately, some friends/colleagues of one gave me some aloe vera mask from Korea and using this on my face was exceptionally lovely... And it was not painful as it would have been.
Check it out.. Try to find in any of the Korean shops around, if not, if a friend goes to Korea.. Make sure you ask them to buy some for you to use....

Thanks to kak Ena and Inn (FFG, PMB) for my masks...
