[Volume 8 Issue 8, #1779]
最近某日嘅一個朝早, 就有三個不同嘅遊客行過嚟向我問路.. 我諗大概係我個樣生得非常之親善, 又或者非常之精靈啦.. 大家覺得呢?? 呵呵!! :D
one fine morning recently, there were three different tourists who approached and asked me for directions.. i guess most probably i look very friendly or very wise to them.. what do you think?? haha!! :D
週末食錯嘢搞到星期一那日肚屙, 本來已經係好痛苦㗎啦, 但係偏偏嗰日要無端端制水!! 好彩肚屙唔嚴重, 水箱仲有足夠儲水咋, 如果唔係@#$%^?!你想象下~~
had diarrhea on monday, supposed already suffering but worse was there was suddenly no water supply!! luckily my diarrhea wasn't serious and we had enough water saved in the tank to use, else @#$%^?! you could imagine~~
最近容易背痛, 我覺得可能係長時間以不良姿勢坐住, 同埋經常背著我好重嘅袋所造成.. 某日見到一個孕婦, 佢啟發咗我去諗, 我個大肚腩會唔會都係其中原因?? :p
my back gets pain often lately, i think it could be due to a long term incorrect sitting posture and also carrying my heavy bag.. one day i saw a pregnant lady and she inspired me to think, could my big tummy be one of the causes too?? :p

    1. The heavy bag could be a cause. I read that when one is carrying a backpack, the strap shouldn't be too long otherwise the heavy load will strain the backbone. Ideally, the upper strap length should be just 4inches so that the pouch stays closer to the body without the back having to unnecessarily strain to adjust to the weight.

      I see a lot of people not doing it right (probably out of ignorance) and it's noticeable that their posture is affected. Take a look the next time you're out and about.

    2. A quick-fix to a tired back is to hug your knees close to your body like in a foetal position when lying down or bend forward when seated. Do it a few times. This will stretch the back and offer some relief from the stress. Medical advice passed on, this one. Try it.

    3. Great juz follow HS and do the yoga back roll ie rock your back on the floor while hugging your knees. Surface of the floor must be hard and not on your bed. If the floor is too hard may cause you more pain then lay a towel or bed sheet.

    4. Good morning HS n pisang :)

      Thanks for the tips HS. Yea I have backache too. Will try out the exercise.

      Ah boy could not be back ache due to big tummy la since ah boy's tummy oretty flat. Usually pregnant women back ache when 6mths onworss la. That means pretty big tummy that time lo

    5. i am using a sling back to carry my laptop, and i already have my strap adjusted to shortest possible, but still sometimes if carrying it for long and possibly added to my incorrect sitting posture in front of the PC.. hmmm, yeah, i tried curling my back and it actually feels a lot better, the stretching kind of help.. thanks for the tips Happy and Bananaz

      hehehe, meow, my tummy pretty flat?? hahaha, maybe you typo again?? fat you mistyped as flat~~ :D

  4. I have a bad back too, due to fall I had a few years ago.

    I can't sit for long otherwise it'll become a bit of pain in the butt (heh) but maintaining a straight posture while seating & walking help for me.

    2. oh you too are really one of a kind huh?? one get butt pain because of sitting too long, and one get back pain because of good friend's monthly visit.. sitting upright with the right posture helps the former lah, but the latter one, i am not a woman so cannot help lah~~ :D

      Delete
    4. haha, then i better hope i will not bump into you one day when there's nobody around to ask for direction!! oh, public toilet no water?? hmmm, if before then rather don't go, if after then faster leave the place before anyone found me!! :D

      oh, that's an interesting observation from meow.. but i think telling the landmark would be clearer right?? i would also do like the ladies, cos not all people know how far they walked..

  12. For the heavy bag case, how heavy is your bag wor? why take so heavy? I have another suggestion, but it seems silly lor... Why don't you take your bag and hang in front like the pregnant lady? = balance back your position.

    1. People ask me nicely, I also nice and help them.

      But there are times when the askers are so rude in asking direction. Said "you know what I am talking about or not?" and scowl.

      Well, rude people (local or tourists, asians or mat salleh or arabs)... sorry. I don;t like rude people.

  16. (1) Probably you look lioke a nice man...but looks can be deceiving! Muahahahahaha!!!

    1. (1)SK got a friendly face.

    2. Ah boy nice la..not deceivibg . He very helpful some more. If git time I think ah boy will show thectourist all the way to the plc they wanna go.

      Delete
    3. 1) hahaha, deceiving or not, at least people approached and i helped.. unlike someone, looking at his face from afar, already find another way to escape, haha!! and meow was right also, if i am also on my way to the same place, i really don't mind walking the tourist there too..

      2) oh yeah, we have also got a huge tube stored with water for emergency that's kept inside the bathroom.. really need to do this, since we are all in this bolehland..

      3) yeah, i think that's actually a wise move :)

    2. You have back pain definitely not because of you have belly, it is because your posture isn't right when you sit, stand, squat and walk. I have back pain too.

  25. SK Thambee - you look kind and innocent like a hramless nerd so the tourists felt very safe to ask you for directions.
    I would run away when tourists come near me. Usually they were China doll bimbos who operate in pairs and would ask me for a free car ride to their destinations! That's how they approach uncles like anay hoping to make easy bucks. Maybe I looked like old hamsap uncle to them.

    1. Speak of the devil. Now we are really having water shortage!!! So many toilets are having serious flushing problems now whether you lau sai or wanna pee. This is terrible as water is so important to stay alive.

      Delete
    2. I always blamed my bad sitting postures and sleeping positions that caused my back and neck aches! I have problem when I slept like a sotong side ways and that could even caused my nasal blockage. Even the gym exercises could cause backaches if I did not stretch and warm up enough. Anyway I love to take showers inside the gym which is always jet strong sprays of boiling hot water. This hot water could soothe away all my body aches very instantly.

      Delete
    3. why would you want to run away from tourists?? i would be very happy to help them, because i try to put myself in their shoes.. imagine when i am in a place i know nothing at all, and there are also nice and kind people to lend a hand, that would be so nice.. but your experience tells us that we should always avoid China doll tourists~~ :D

      absolutely true!! whenever there is water disruption, i always think twice before i go to the toilet.. is it really required?? if not i'd rather save the water..

      oh yeah, i think probably it's due to my sitting posture, i must remind myself to sit upright and do not bend myself too much especially when i am using the PC.. oh, i have not been doing the stretching (lazy and skipped) since a long time ago, could be that also huh??

    4. haha, definitely not the same group lah.. because they are of different ethnic and also we met at different locations mah.. yalor, i also think it's because i am both friendly and wise, haha!!

      actually i was lucky, the diarrhea wasn't serious so i didn't actually LS a lot lah, haha!! and that we still have enough water stored in the tangki, so no nightmare 有驚無險, hehe﹗﹗

      i think it's long term incorrect posture lah.. your backpain sure was caused by your pregnancy right?? salonpas patch just temporarily and won't help, i think massage will be better lah.. and i also tried to bend and hug my knees, feel a lot better.. you can try that lah~~ :)
