We boys don’t get butterflies, we get fireworks. We don’t have you on our mind 24/7, but we do have you on our hearts. Often, yes we wait for you to go online, sometimes simply even just being online makes our heart skip a beat, even if we don’t talk. Whenever you talk to us, our face forms that half-smile; it means we are happy but are trying our hardest to not show it, and fail at hiding it. We do miss you all the time; granted, we’d spend all our time with you if possible. We don’t think of the smallest things you say, we think of every word you say, panicking at every single word, trying to define what it really means, to read between the lines. But wait there’s more.
We would love you in a million ways. And once we start loving you there is no going back for us. No matter how hard we try we will always love a girl that has touched us. Us boys when in love will think of that girl first thing in the morning, and think of that girl last before we sleep at night. Whenever we see a couple, our thoughts immediately jump to that girl, and imagine that the couple was us. Every single detail about her is loved; the way she walks, talks, speaks. The sound of her voice. Her laughter. The sparkle in her eyes. Her shy smile. The way she dresses. That cute face she makes when she’s asleep. And the way she says our name that our hearts just explode with mirth, a simple act that no-one else can replicate.
A boy in love with a girl is no simple thing, though ladies stereotype us guys as simple. A man in love is not simple. No. He will be unpredictable. He will be persistent, stubborn, and given the circumstances, if it means carrying you from one side of the world to the other to win your heart, a man in love would. He will be a martyr, giving his all and asking for almost none. He will show you how to appreciate the beauty of the world in a thousand ways, and then he will tell you how much he appreciates your beauty in a million ways.
A man in love is no simple thing.

Dry skin can be uncomfortable and unattractive. It often shows up as rough, red, and itchy patches in places of the body that show arms, hands, lower legs, ankles. But it’s also common on the soles of the feet, thighs, and the abdomen.
Since most dry skin is due to external causes, it responds well to external skin care treatment. Just making a few adjustments to your daily skin care routine can help. No matter what the cause, there are many things you can do to make dry skin smooth and supple.
How to Take Care of Dry Skin:
Beauty Mask for Dry Skin (mix the ingredients thoroughly and use as a mask):
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon of honey,
- 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil
- few drops of rose water
After you clean and tone your skin, apply a splash of water or a water-misting. Pat almost dry with a soft towel, then smooth moisturizer from bosom to hairline. Allow five minutes for immediate absorption (cover your face and throat with warm washcloths to hasten penetration), then blot off any excess moisturizer with a tissue.
Men can skip the toner but should moisturize the delicate skin around the eye area.
Apply a touch of your natural moisturizer over the freshly cleansed, toned, and dampened skin on your throat, cheeks, and around your eyes. Men should follow a two-step process. Apply moisturizer immediately after shaving. Wait ten minutes. Then moisturize again.
Once a week, take a milk bath. It will nourish and smoothen your skin. Warm your bath water and put in 250 gram of powdered milk, half tablespoon of almond oil and a few drops of your favorite perfume. Then just lie in it and let your mind wander while the wholesome foam works wonders on your dry skin.
5 Lifestyle Tips for Relieving Dry Skin:
These strategies can also help make your skin supple and smooth:
- Plug in a humidifier at home to help keep skin hydrated when indoor air is dry during winter months.
- Wear cotton and other natural fibers. Wool, synthetics, or other fabrics can be scratchy and irritating.
- Drink plenty of water.
- Eat omega-3 foods. Essential fatty acids can help fortify the skin’s natural oil-retaining barriers. Foods rich in omega-3 include cold-water fish (salmon, halibut, sardines), flax, walnuts, and safflower oil.
- For itching or inflammation, apply a cool compress or a hydro cortisone cream on the area for a week. If these don’t provide relief, talk to your doctor.
How do you prevent dry skin?
- Dry skin is still something that is bothersome and can even be painful during the autumn and fall seasons. If you are prone to dry skin, you may not be able to get away from it, but you can combat it and make things easier for you.
- When the weather is bad, make sure that you wear protective clothing to keep the snap of the cold wind out. If you don’t do this, exposed skin is the first place that you will find dry skin located. That includes your face and your hands, to common areas for dry skin to appear.
- Avoid taking showers. If you have dry skin continuously, this is a great way to stop it. Showers, especially those that are of hot water, are detrimental to skin care. You are sure to find yourself relaxing better in a bath anyway. Showers actually strip the natural oils from your skin that can prevent dry skin.
- Use milder soaps on your skin. Look for bar soap and hand soap that is mild. There are several brands that are available to you that don’t contain such harsh chemicals and abrasives that can rip away the natural oils in your skin.
- Use lotions and moisturizers. If you know that your skin is going to be dry, use moisturizers to fight it before it happens. You can also tackle your problems more effectively if you treat dry skin sooner rather than later when it is painful.
- Use bath oils. Another way to get a treatment for your dry skin is to add bath oils to your bath water. These add in the oils that may be depleted because of the weather or other condition that is causing your dry skin.
- Use these methods to fight off your dry skin. You don’t have to worry about how bad it will be this year when you have a few tricks to fighting and preventing dry skin available to you now.
- Never use hot water when cleansing dry skin.
- Don’t use a washcloth because a rough texture can irritate.

Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world's leading athletes.
But energy isn't the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.
According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana. This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.
Forget the pills - eat a banana. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.
High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood and so helps in cases of anemia.
This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it perfect to beat blood pressure So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the banana industry to make official claims for the fruit's ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and stroke.
200 students at a Twickenham (Middlesex) school ( England ) were helped through their exams this year by eating bananas at breakfast, break, and lunch in a bid to boost their brain power. Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert.
High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help restore normal bowel action, helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.
One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a banana milkshake, sweetened with honey. The banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.
Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.
Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.
Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the inside of a banana skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.
Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system..
Overweight and at work? Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria found pressure at work leads to gorging on comfort food like chocolate and chips. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients, researchers found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs. The report concluded that, to avoid panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate foods every two hours to keep levels steady.
The banana is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chronicler cases. It also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.
Many other cultures see bananas as a 'cooling' fruit that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers. In Thailand , for example, pregnant women eat bananas to ensure their baby is born with a cool temperature.
So, a banana really is a natural remedy for many ills. When you compare it to an apple, it has FOUR TIMES the protein, TWICE the carbohydrate, THREE TIMES the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals.. It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods around So maybe its time to change that well-known phrase so that we say, 'A BANANA a day keeps the doctor away!'

Any of u with eczema?
Hiding ur flaws under a long sleeve, turtle neck, socks or covered shoes?
Looking for a wedding dress that wont show those scars?
Let me tell u..i'm a patient. i hv chronic eczema back then (still hv em now but not as bad) last time my skin was thick and scaly nmpk mcm org masuk bendang. tried numerous specialists since i was 21-22, yerp. 5-6years back it started. I had none during school days infact i was an active student;-- i won 3rd place in national cooking competition, best debater in selangor debate comp, captain for d netball team, played handball and hockey. Pantun, menari, menyanyi semualah i active-- pages if i were to list em all down.
Ya, i never thought i'll hv such skin disorder-- sensitive towards weather, heat/cold, sweat, seafood n a lot more.in the earlier years, my palms were very dry and scaly. Sometimes my skin got injured badly;-- eczema sliced my skin like papercuts (without paper). I do not know; it happened naturally or i scratched during bedtime. Yerp eczema is beyond itchy. 88times itchier than mosquitoes bites. Seriously, anyway it first attacked my mid palm and then my fingers.. Yeah its ugly. I was so shy to shake hands with people i meet. And embarassed everytime the cashier passed me the balance (coins) that i had no choice but to tadah and cashier will definitely gv me a weird expression looking at my ugly hands.
Some insensitive friends even made stupid jokes of the skin disorder i hv without even thinking how it affects me as an eczema patient emotionally. Some said "ewwwww! Gross!" and some might quietly think the skin major cause sbb pengotor. How stupid. but well i wish i can say right on their faces "hey not-so-knowledgable friend, eczema is NOT contagious. Eczema has got nothing to do with hygiene. Its in our blood and we never ask for it, idiot!"
Ya, how i wish... u know what people, as a woman-- harsh remarks seriously break my heart. I've been to soooo many specialists and spent thousands of RM for the treatment. Name it--- sjmc, dsara specialist, tropicana, hosp selayang, hkl, klinik kulit ttdi, klinik kulit in bb and some other. but no one manage to cure.
In 2009, i gave up and started steroid jabs. I went to the doc every month for d jab tho d doctor kept reminding me of the side effects. Since then i gained loads of weight. from 54kg in 2009, now im 66kg. Seriously. Appetite bertambah and the effect of steroid jabs--moonface, bloated. But thats the shortcut to non-ugly skin on my palms and feet.
For 2 years with steroid jabs, this year i realized i encounter difficulties in breathing. So i stop taking d jabs and mula looking for treatments again; here n there. What more im getting married, sure i want a beautiful henna drawings not eczema-maps on hands and feet, aite?
And alhamdulillah someone introduced me to dr noraziah, demc. After more than 20skin specialists since 2005, i'm definite dt dr noraziah is my life and wedding savior. My first treatment was in july.and latest-- today at 10.15am... i can see major progress. Eczema on my two hands TOTALLY vanished! and on my feet, say from 20bintang (spot-scars) i now only have some and they are no longer thick and scaly.
My big day is approaching, i pray eczema will hilang so i can apply beautiful red-henna on my hands and feet :))
To those who hv eczema, dont be embarassed-- u are not alone. n remember, never ever give up!
talk to me. I dont mind. and with open arms,i'll share details n my experiences w d skin specialist. Kita kena ikhtiar.... :)
Jangan hanya mengenal “telekung” & “kopiah” saat sesak.
Jangan hanya memandang “qiblat” saat payah.
Jangan hanya teringat “wudhu” saat lemas.
Jangan hanya mengenal “tasbih” saat hanyut.
Jangan hanya memandang “alam” saat alpa.
Sayang yang tak kelihatan ada pada hati, letaknya iman.
Carilah sayang Agung itu.
Agar sayang tak lagi palsu.
