In my opinion obesity started being worldwide problem and it is weird paradox that meanwhile in one part of our planet people are dying of starving, somewhere else they voluntarily decided to shorten their life by being…

HAND PULLER RICKSHAW

Most of us know about hand puller rickshaw. It is a mode of human powered transport by which a runner draws a two - wheeled cart which seats one or two people.

Around 1880, hand puller rickshaw appeared in India, first time in Shimla. And then later introduced in Kolkata (Calcutta, India).

Though, in recent times the use of human powered rickshaw has been discouraged or outlawed in many countries due to concern for the welfare of rickshaw workers and have been replaced by cycle…

You Know You've Met A Malaysian When ....

This coming 31st August 2014, we Malaysians are 57 years old. Well, actually the country is much older than that, if taking into consideration that one of the oldest rainforests (130 millions years old) is in Malaysia, but it is 57 years of independence from the British rules. In the spirit of being independent, I want to share with all of you something unique, weird and quirky about Malaysians. In fact I've written a similar subject in my previous blog; …

With the rapid economic growth, China is now the second largest economy in the world, and at the same time pollution, a byproduct of the development, has accompanied the growth to come. People are now so familiar with the environmental pollution, such as air or water pollution - the sky is no longer blue; the rivers aren't clear any…

How many friends are enough in life

Yesterday my best friend said that he was so proud of himself that he had way more friends than me; it is true that I just have a few friends, five or six or so. I am not good at maintaining a relationship with men, I acknowledge that even my best friends which I own less connect with me than other people, I guess. However, I am so glad that they are still remember me and it seems that our relationship are strong enough to pass the time, maybe you will ask why I am so confident with myself.…
