Photo shooting at KL Railway Station

This is something that I wanted to do but have not been doing for quite some time now.......family photo shooting.
Last Sunday we stop by KL Railway Station for a short session. It was somewhat a re-visit as Pei and I used to take commuter at the station many years ago.
We managed to enjoy ourselves there as the surrounding was pretty peaceful even with the passing by commuters and trains. The kids did well modelling for their daddy to capture some good photos for memories. An amateur model in the making.

I am still using my old faithfull Canon S3-IS Powershot but hungry for a DLSR! A luxury which I gotta wait. Enjoy the photos.

Alarming rise in number of diabetics in Malaysia

The number of diabetics in the country has increased by almost 80 percent in the last 10 years from 1996-2006 to 1.4 million adults above the age of 30.

Director-General of Health Tan Sri Dr Mohd Ismail Merican said what was alarming was that almost 36 percent of them were undiagnosed, resulting in complications later that required more intensive medical care, putting great strain on the existing overstretched health services. He said lifestyle-related changes were the main factors influencing the increase of diabetes in the country. He said lifestyle modifications like weight loss, changes in diet and increased physical activity would greatly help in controlling the disease.

Change of lifestyle is definitely the main factor to minimise the risk of one selves from developing/having such disease. Thats remind me to cut down my ongoing 'teh tarik' and 'kopi'. Well one more item included in my 2010 to do list. Besides health reason, the recent increase of sugar prices is also a deterrent. 'Tak Nak' sugar!

Ivan goes to kindergarten

This new year 2010 begins with a new adventure and journey for Ivan.

It is Ivan first time ever going the school attending kindergarten. Going to be 4 years old soon, he attended the kindy just few blocks away from our house. So it was a great convenient to mommy to fetch Ivan to and fro minus the town traffic jam and longer distance.

First day was a great struggle for Ivan. He cried not wanting to go to school when we prepare him in the morning. Then he cried after we left him at the school. Parents were asked to leave the school compound for the school session to start to avoid prolong longing by the children for the parents.

Well after 5 days, things have improve quite a lot. Most of all he begins to like going to school especially the foods and friends of course. Ivan would shared to me each time I came home from work what he ate that day during snack time. And he would said, "I didn't cry
".

A great start of the new year for Ivan.
