• #HFMD Teaches Me About Patience

    Last year when iPhone 5S was announced, I hunted it high & low, booking it at all places and finally loss some bucks in cancelling all of them, as I bought it from Apple Malaysia online store during the Red Friday sale, with 20% discount. Does having the thing first make any difference?  Maybe, but actually no.  Other than the right to brag, which most hates. Change the perspective a bit, getting #HFMD fast?  No, thanks. 

  • The Lack of Awareness Still – HFMD

    Many adults may still think Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease (HFMD) only affects kids below 5 years of age.  However, with my recent diagnosis, it is proven that HFMD could attack adults too, in fact, harder than kids. Thank God to the medical advances and probably well read groups of people, no death (of which I could find online, while searching) that shown HFMD was the cause for the adults.  I know now most are afraid of the Ebola outbreak, which some suspected cases may have been reported here in Malaysia, but I think similar effort from the Ministry of Health should be placed on HFMD, H1N1, any kind of…

  • I have #HFMD (hand foot mouth disease) which adult is not spared

    Our daughter first had HFMD on Wednesday, September 10, after school, and the paediatrician confirmed on Thursday morning, the next day, that she had HFMD.  We informed her school immediately, and also got to know about other 3 kids also down with this. Our Ministry of Health has a detailed information about the HFMD (you can read about it, not much information and mostly outdated). However in the neighbouring country, down south, Singapore, I found a father whom contracted HFMD from his daughter blogged about his experience in 2008.

  • ABCs Against HFMD

    The first seven weeks of 2012 saw the drastic increase in the number of Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease (HFMD) in Sarawak – 806[1] cases were reported compared to 213 cases for the same period last year, amounting to a four-fold increase. Reported cases rose significantly in the first week of March 2012 with 1,771[2] cases resulting in 27 schools, pre-schools and child-care centres in Sarawak being temporarily closed to contain the outbreak. Antabax, an antibacterial personal care range in collaboration with the Ministry of Health Malaysia have introduced the ‘Antabax Backs Communities Against HFMD’ (ABCs Against HFMD) education andawareness campaign as a direct response to the HFMD outbreak.
