How to Reduce Your Waistline

Did You Know...

... that you can rub your stomach away effortlessly using nothing but your hand -- for only 2 minutes a day?Dr. Stephen Chang     This may sound hard to believe, but Dr. Stephen Chang, an M.D. and Ph.D. who's trained in both Western and Chinese medicine, states that this simple 2-minute internal exercise, which does not come from Western medicine, but rather from the wisdom of ancient Chinese sages -- has been used successfully as a self-healing mechanism for over 6,000 years.

     Whatever you do, don't confuse this internal exercise with the external exercises of the Western world, such as sit-ups, crunches and other movements that only firm up the underlying stomach muscles ... but do nothing to melt the fat surrounding those muscles.

     According to Dr. Chang, losing weight is a simple matter of increasing the efficiency of the digestive system.  If you've ever wondered why you fail to shed pounds even when you reduce your food and/or caloric intake -- the reason is because your digestive and eliminatory systems are not functioning efficiently.

     The following 2-minute exercise works like a gentle colonic irrigation that helps speed up a sluggish digestive system (which usually carries at least 5 pounds of fecal matter within it), and this elimination of useless sludge has the effect of burning off excess fat.  The exercise effectively metabolizes the fatty tissues around the stomach and intestines, and flushes them out of your body through blood, sweat, urine, and feces.

     Here's how to do the stomach-rubbing exercise:
1)  Lie flat on your back on your bed or on the floor.  Take your top off or pull it up so that your abdominal area is bare.

2)  Rub your hands together vigorously for about 15 seconds, or until they feel hot. 
Rub Stomach Away3)  Place one of  your hands directly on your belly button and begin to rub in small circles around your belly button, and gradually make the circles larger (as shown in the diagram).  Use fairly firm but comfortable pressure and rub at a slow, even pace, approximately 1 circle per second.

4)  Concentrate on the heat building up in, around and throughout your stomach.

5)  Do about 40 to 50 circles, or for an approximate duration of 2 minutes or more.

Note:  It is important to keep the abdominal area warm while doing the exercise, especially during winter months when even heated indoor air tends to be cool.

For best results, do this routine twice a day for 2 minutes -- first thing in the morning (before breakfast) and just before you go to bed.  Most people see noticeable results within 1 week of consistent practice.

     According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the stomach is the center of energy.  Massaging the stomach in the manner described above therefore accomplishes more than just melting away adipose tissue (fat).  It also ...

     * stimulates the abdominal organs
     * helps speed up slow digestion and remedies constipation
     * increases blood circulation in the abdominal area
     * helps heal indigestion, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting and the adverse
        effects of overeating

A Day At The Zoo Negara (National Zoo) Malaysia

Zoo Negara in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Had an awesome day yesterday at the Zoo Negara, Kuala Lumpur. My last visit to the Zoo Negara was about 7 years ago, I think. So, I was caugt by surprise when I see the changes they have made over the 7 years. All the trees that they have planted have matured, the facilities have somewhat improved, and the tourist - well what about the tourist, you wonder? - To tell you the truth, I feel as if I'm the tourist and I'm in another country. I would estimate that Malaysian were outnumbered by tourist 2:1. Don't believe me? Then go and see for yourself!

Here are few photos that was taken from my visit to the National Zoo

I walked for 4 hours in the Zoo and I also had to carry a bag full of food and drinks. Thankfully, the bag gets lighter and lighter as the trip comes to an end! haha. Maybe I'll come to this place again in 7 years time...

On the 10th,12th and 14th oh July, all Foundation Studies in Science students had their 1st Test! While you probably know that cramming is one of the worst ways to study for an exam, the fact is that virtually everyone finds themselves in this situation once in a while.

'Lepak'ing when doing an Experiment

Corporate logo of Universiti Teknologi MARA
Yeah, you read it correctly. 'Lepak'ing is a combination of Malay and English. It means chill-out or relax. You might think that it is very silly of us to 'lepak' when we are in a middle of an experiment. But we have valid reason to do so!

These photos was taken this afternoon. Whilst everyone was on their lunch break, my group had to do a Biology experiment, entitled "Photosynthesis"
Photosynthesis is the process of converting light energy to chemical energy and storing it in the bonds of sugar. This process occurs in plants and some algae. Plants need only light energy, carbon dioxide and water to make sugar. The process of photosynthesis takes place in the choloplasts, specifically using cholophyll.

Whilst waiting for the plants to photosynthesize (40minutes), me and my friends chill out and take photos of ourselves! haha

Physics Lab Experiment

Corporate logo of Universiti Teknologi MARA
These are some photos taken when I'm doing physics experiment yesterday. The title of the experiment is Spring Elasticity.

  Elasticity is one one of the physical characteristics of a solid. It shows whether a material will return to its original state when an external force applied to it is removed.

 The quantitative discussion of the elasticity of a spring can be summarized according to Hooke's Law which defined as follows.
The force applied on an elastic object is proportional to the displacement of the material from its original position.
