• Welcome to Puchong, 2.0

    I started Welcome To Puchong Facebook page a few years ago, when I was doing it with a few others.  It did not last.  Mainly, I was generating and developing the content, as well as promoting the page, alone. Just kind of like another tech enthusiast group I started with others, after a while, it was me running it alone, with the help of Retna, as well as our twins. As you are probably figuring things out now, I prefer a family run kind of startup.  Maybe it is about commitment from others, which I think could have taken a toll on some. So I went quiet for a while,…

  • 365 days 360 degree, sensitive skin

    Good news. It seems common that many Malaysian with sensitive skin. Due to environmental factors such as air pollution, temperature change from dry air-conditioned interiors to hot and humid exteriors and lack of hydration, skin can become sensitive, and people can suffer from uncomfortably ‘tight’, dry or cracking skin.

  • Blending Health, Convenience, Possible?

    I once went on a trip of fasting, after I learn from a Finnish expert of health, he came in Malaysia many years back.  I attended his session (FOC), which he shared on the idea of fasting, without food for days, just plain water.  I tried, it seems to work.  I forgot his name by now, I was 14 that time. However, the fast I did recently (some years back) was the pray for the nation, I did the half and full day fast, and praying for the nation. As the Ramadan is drawing closer, which is about sometime next month, we will be seeing many Muslim around the world…

  • Dandruff, Read This.

    Do you have dandruff? Several studies have shown a prevalence of dandruff of up to 50% in the general population[1]. While dandruff is not contagious or physically harmful, it can cause sufferers to present as messy or unhygienic; and cause embarrassment and a loss of self-confidence[2]. Dandruff can have several causes, with dry skin being the most common cause of flaking dandruff[3]. Other causes include, irregular or incorrect scalp and hair care, over-shampooing and sensitivity to hair care products. There are many anti-dandruff treatments. While the majority of anti-dandruff treatment are effective in reducing the formation of dandruff flakes, there is a concern that hair and scalp can be stripped off…

  • It’s good to be still alive

    Last Friday, I accidentally dropped a metal furniture on my right toe. The pain was severe, I sought medical help, treated with some pain killer.  I went home and then to work without able to control the pain, was really bad. Fast forward to 6 days later, I could feel slight pain, but I think the toe is slowly recovering.  I missed my routine exercise, but what the heck, I could still do exercise that does not require my toe to be involved. On the toe accident, I just want to reflect a moment in my life how I could possibly loose my life, just like how a metal furniture…

  • Night, Puchong

    After dinner, while waiting for Inez from her ballet class, I walked about, with my Leica.  Just to put what I have learn from sifus such as Mathias Heng, Fulvio Bugani and Izwan Ismail into practice. I have taken pictures of the same place before, but that time I was experimenting the Leica. This time, I came with some ideas of what I wanted to capture.  Love the results. I edited the pictures a bit using the Lightroom on my iPad Pro. I think it is great to view Puchong at night, from different perspective. When it comes to Puchong, often many would think of it as messy, jam, food…

  • When you shop online, beware of these things

    I was buying an outdoor water filter. I looked around physically and online, shortlisted to Coway Bamboo and 3M AP902. While I like 3M products (disclaimer, not all of them), as I have 3M Crystalline tint for our beloved Peugeot (I find it not as great, in fact I dislike it compares what we got on our DS5, which is also another American brand, no free advertisement, as we paid in full for that), scotch tape (always on my desk, I do not use any other brand), sticky note (again, always on my desk), scotch brite (yep, handy in the kitchen) as well as Scotch hangers (I used it to…
