Air Cond Servicing and Gas Refilling

Today, my brother and I spent RM460 for air cond servicing and gas refilling. It's the amount of money that we used for 3 aircond service.

Initially I saw a good deal from LivingSocial that cost RM200 but I could not make any appointment with the merchant. It was a horrible experience and I intend to ask for a refund for it. Lousy service and no commitment to communicate with the customers. Even Living Social was not quick to respond to problems like this. I'm so disappointed. 

Anyway, YenLeng's uncle knew this guy who helped with aircond service and gas refilling that could come today itself. I need to get it done today because my family and I will be going to Taiwan and the aircond inside my tenant's room no longer has any gas.

One of it is in my tenant's room, another in the master room and another one in the living room.





Anyway, after the service, the aircond definitely feels cooler and nicer.

Hopefully the RM460 is worth the money.

RELAX & Drink Tea

Have you ever felt tired of work, socializing, meeting people, doing things...and you just wanted that peace of mind, to relax and get away from internet, from things...to RELAX.

If you are in the modern world, it is likely that you don't get away from emails, whatsapp, twitters, news updates etc...and sometimes, all of that just need to stop. At least for a brief moment.

And this is how I think one should do it. RELAX & Drink Tea. 

RELAX & Drink Tea

I am normally a coffee person, but I always find I take coffee in order to focus and concentrate on work, but when I drink tea, I tend to loosen up, rest and let my mind hibernate. 

Anyway, I purposely bought the Early Grey Lavender from BIG in Publika. I even bought the Mug & Tea Infuser as well.

the tea sachets

The tea was very nice and the aroma of it was simply amazing. The scent of lavender was something that I appreciate. It's authentic and has the sweet floral fragrance of the lavender. With the beautiful scent of lavender, it helps to bring out the taste of tea. I felt that tea base could be a little strong for people like my girlfriend but I totally enjoyed it.

The quality of the muslin sachet is also top notch. There isn't any tea leaf that managed to pass through it. Something that I appreciate it a lot as it gives a smooth sensation when one drink the tea. 

Overall, a great tea for relaxation.

When you suffer from "The Flush"

It is always great to meet up with a bunch of friends for some drinking session. And sometimes, once in a blue moon, it's just awesome to drink until you remember nothing the next day...but if you or you happened to have a friend who suffered from "The Flush", it's better for you to know some of these things before you decide another round of bottoms up.

Some people could have a red face because of allergic, or it might point to a more serious issue: it could be a warning sign of impending heart trouble, finds new research from South Korea.



Are you suffering from "The Flush"?


ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE:

For men who became flushed from alcohol by taking four or more drinks per week, there is a higher chance and likelihood to develop high blood pressure later in life than guys who didn’t turn red from booze. That means guys who suffer from skin flushing are at greater risk for heart disease, stroke, and other hypertension-related health issues, the research suggests. So, if you have friends with "The Flush" syndrome, please do take note.

HERE'S THE SCIENCE EXPLANATION: 

Now, I'm not a doctor or a scientist but from my reading, there is a science explanation to it. When you drink alcohol, the alcohol metabolite called acetaldehyde builds up in your system....the more you drink, the more your blood vessels will constrict, and eventually weakens the blood flow and makes you look "RED". Under normal circumstances, our body will have the ability to break down the metabolite.

It is difficult to differentiate between an alcohol allergy and an inability to break down acetaldehyde because both causes flushing. A simple way to do an own diagnosis is by checking if the red face is accompanied by nausea and heart palpitations, especially if your flushing experience happens irregardless of the type of hooch you're swallowing....which points to acetaldehyde issue. If this is the case, it's best that you talk to your doctor about it.

Of course, no matter who you are and how good a drinker you are, drinking too heavily can lead to a build-up of the metabolite and, eventually, to high blood pressure.
But for most American men it takes a whole lot of booze—roughly 14 or more drinks per week—to be in danger, studies have shown. Stay out of trouble by sticking to 1 to 3 drinks a week, the research indicates.
