Electricity Bill (Sesco)

Untuk kali kedua selepas program ini diumumkan oleh Kerajaan Malaysia,
kami berjaya menerima bill seperti ini...


Hehe...gembira nya tak perlu bayar bil lektrik bulan ni.

Kali pertama kami dapat bil seperti ini ialah dalam tahun lepas, kebetulan bulan March juga, kat Kuching ni sepanjang Jan and Feb cuaca memang best, aircon pun jarang-jarang jer on.

Ni pun kira sumbangan sempena Earth Hour gak ni, walaupun kami tak tutup lampu pun masa Earth Hour.
Tapi saya heran la, jiran kami masa Earth Hour memang lampu semua tutup, tingkap pun tutup semua gak, tapi aircon on. (masa tu tengah hujan renyai-renyai kat kawasan kami)
Bukan ke aircon lagi banyak menggunakan tenaga banding dengan lampu, kenapa tak off kan aircon, off kan computer, off kan tv masa Earth Hour daripada off lampu yang tak seberapa watt tu? (guna la energy saver light ye kawan-kawan)
Apapun saya memang tak suka gelap (penakut kan), but I try to save the energy in my own ways and on my own sweet time :)

7 classes of plastics

#1 (PET or PETE) plastic is the kind used for bottled water bottles, which are generally regarded as safe. They have been shown to leach antimony into the water in a couple of studies, but at levels considered safe by the EPA. The scare about their leaching DEHA if reused, which you may have come across, turns out to be an urban legend. If there is any risk from reuse, it probably comes from bacterial contamination. (The bottles' narrow necks make them hard to clean.)

#2 (HDPE), 4 (LDPE) and 5 (polypropylene) plastics are generally regarded as safe.

#3 (PVC) and 6 (styrene) plastics pose health risks and should be avoided. (They are not ordinarily used for water bottles, but are used for other food and beverage containers.)

#7 plastic is usually polycarbonate and contains BPA. If you are in love with a particular #7 bottle, you could call the manufacturer to identify the plastic, but that might not make matters clearer. The "better safe than sorry" approach would be to avoid #7 altogether in my opinion.

Boy electrocuted at playground

SHAH ALAM: An 11-year-old boy was electrocuted to death when he touched a lamppost at a playground in Taman Batu Tiga here on Saturday.

SK Seksyen 20 student Muhammad Naqiuddin Mohd Marzuki was running home after playing football on a wet field with several friends when he slipped and fell at 6.50pm.

As he was falling, one of his legs touched the lamppost and he was believed to have been electrocuted.

Naqiuddin's father, Mohd Marzuki Muda, 44, said he was resting at home when five of his son's friends came and informed him about the incident.

"I rushed there to see what had happened and saw my son lying face down. One of his legs looked like it was glued to the lamppost. He was not moving.

"I took a dry stick and moved his body away from the lamppost before sending him to a private hospital nearby. He was still alive then."


Marzuki said upon arrival at the hospital, doctors found no vital signs and tried to revive Naqiuddin using cardiopulmonary resuscitation for about an hour, but failed.

"The doctors told me that my eldest son's heart could have been affected by the electric shock."

The father of three said he was upset and confused over how the lamppost could conduct electricity when it supposed to be a safe facility for the public.

Marzuki said he would lodge a complaint with the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) over the incident.

Naqiuddin's friend, Mohd Salman Shahmi, 11, said the victim left the game in a hurry.

"He was running towards his home. One of us told him not to as the field was slippery. All of a sudden, he slipped and fell.

"We heard him screaming in pain for a while before he fell silent."

Subang Jaya police chief Assistant Commissioner Zainal Rashid Abu Bakar said police were investigating to determine the cause of the electrocution.

"At the moment, investigations are (also) being carried out by relevant authorities like Tenaga Nasional Bhd to find out the source of electricity.

"The victim's body was sent to University Malaya Medical Centre and a post-mortem confirmed that he had died of electrocution."

MPSJ council member Keshminder Singh said initial investigations revealed that the lamppost's electrical wires were intact.

"Our engineers found that there was nothing wrong with the lamppost.

"One of the possible causes may be a leakage in the underground cable.

"However, we are still investigating. MPSJ is getting to the bottom of this matter. We have cordoned off the area pending thorough checks."

BPA free bottle

BPA baby bottles banned


PUTRAJAYA: The government has decided to ban the polycarbonate feeding bottle containing the organic compound Bisphenol A or BPA from March 1 next year, Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said today.

He said the cabinet decided at its meeting on March 2 to adopt the precautionary measure because there was no sound scientific proof that the feeding bottle was safe for use by infants and children.

"The ministry will not compromise on the safety of consumers, more so infants and children," he told reporters after chairing a post-cabinet meeting, here.

Liow said it had been learnt that BPA could cause disruption to the hormonal system and consequently interrupt bodily functions, but added that so far no evaluation had been done on the hormonal system in infants.

He also said that the government was giving the industry a one-year period to wind down the manufacture of the BPA-containing polycarbonate feeding bottles. - BERNAMA

How to identify and use feeding bottles

The Health Ministry is distributing pamphlets on how to identify polycarbonate baby-feeding bottles containing Bisphenol A (BPA) and guides on how to use BPA-free polycarbonate bottles. Listed below are some of the ways to identify polycarbonate baby feeding bottles

- A polycarbonate feeding bottle is hard and transparent.

- It can be identified through the plastic classification codes found on the bottom of the bottle as follows:

a. Number 7
b. Number 7 and PC

c. Number 7 and others

- BPA-free bottles are usually labelled as "BPA-free".

Listed below is the guide on BPA bottle usage:
  1. Sterilise the bottle following the instructions on the label or those provided by the manufacturer. If none, the bottle should be submerged in boiling water for five to 10 minutes.
  2. Avoid pouring hot water directly into the bottle when preparing milk.
  3. Use appropriate cleaning utensils, such as a soft sponge and brush, to avoid scratching the surface of the bottle.
  4. Check the inner surface of the bottle regularly. Replace if scratches are found or the feeding bottle is spoilt. Feeding bottles, even those without scratches, should be changed every six months.
  5. There are several alternative baby feeding bottles in the market made from polypropylene, polyethersulfone, polyyamides as well as glass.
  6. For more information, please contact the Health Ministry at 03 8883 3652/ 3653/ 3655 or visit http://fsq.moh.gov.my or http://moh.gov.my

Honda Insight

All-new Honda Insight Hybrid 1.3

Size nya ada kecil sikit banding dengan Prius,
tapi lebih aerodynamic and lebih sporty look.

Keseluruhannya sangat memuaskan, cuma seat belakang ada rendah sikit, kena berhati-hati ketika masuk kereta, nanti terhantuk kepala pulak.

Kalau booking within 2 days after the launching boleh dapat discount RM500,
tak best la nak booking tanpa test drive dulu kan..

Yang Japan version ada touch screen, tak tau la kenapa kat sini takda, maybe kena tunggu special edition kot.
