1. Wait! Wait, don't forget to say "Hi!" Smileys

2. Thus sexual love is but a momentary relief, followed at once by shame and revulsion for what has happened.

3. The trouble is, if you don't risk anything, you risk even more.

4. My hometown is many miles away. Smileys

5. With a faint pop I am turning back into me.

6. The sky above appeared shadowy and ominous.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to finishing up my online task, tomorrow my plans include having a BBQ dinner with Ralph Smileys and Sunday, I want to meet up with some friends for coffee!

As you can see from the picture, the permanent straightening (rebonding) gives me softer, silky, super straight hair. The thing is, I have really thin hair and it made my hair look flat and limp. Fine, straight hair is absolutely beautiful — if you have a lot of it! When it comes to hairstyles for thin hair, there is not a great abundance of styles to choose from. Besides that, rebonding can also leave me bald because it uses more toxic chemicals. Yes, I read an article about hair rebonding and it says it can lead to hair loss! Smileys Hair loss can be extremely difficult to accept and deal with especially for women.

I did experience excessive hair loss once due to medication side effects. I was on several medications to try to control an acute viral illness, dengue fever and I started losing my hair. Smileys I felt horrible! It was indeed very depressing and scary. After recovering from dengue fever, I came back to KL and immediately started looking for any treatments that could help me. I contacted my hairdresser and he suggested me to do a strand-by-strand non-surgical treatment. If you're experiencing hair loss, then this could be perfect for you! To make a long story short, I was so pleased with the results and the treatment that I received! Smileys

However, should hair loss be experienced after perms etc. then you should avoid them. That is why you have to scrutinize whatever you use in your hair since improper use of products may cause potential hair loss. So, maintaining the rebonded look means continual touch-ups, at least, every 6 months. This puts you at further risk of hair loss, eventually, and prematurely, leaving your full head of hair nothing but a memory.

Now, I am bored of my hairstyle and I want something new! I am planning on hitting up the salon next week. Hmmm... What hairstyles would suit me best? Smileys

Everyone's palate is different, but almost everyone's palate craves salt. Well, a little salt sea water certainly isn't going to hurt. But, too much salt can worsen symptoms like swelling and shortness of breath and cause weight gain. Ingesting more sodium than needed can lead to high blood pressure, a serious risk factor in heart disease and stroke. Therefore, over the years, Ocean's Flavor has experienced tremendous growth due to the public's demand for lower sodium products. In case you didn't know, Ocean's Flavor provides a natural lower-sodium, healthier and tasty alternative to traditional salt. Smileys Sea salt is a must for your gourmet table, either at home or out and about!

One fine day, Ralph made this mouthwatering and wonderful meal for lunch! Smileys

I really love salmon. With so many ways to cook salmon, and even more to enjoy it, he tried to grill the salmon steaks. It's so delicious that heavy sauces and marinades just get in the way of the natural goodness. Smileys The Ocean's Flavor lower sodium salt sea salt is fabulous on the salmon, too!

At first he combines ingredients which include fine sea salt and pepper and marinates the salmon steaks for 1 hour. Then, grill the salmon over medium flame for 6-8 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork and continue to baste salmon while grilling with leftover marinade every 1 to 2 minutes. Cut extra lemon in half and squeezes the juice over the cooked salmon steaks. Lemon and salmon are delicious flavors to combine, and along with just a touch of something else, you can create a healthy, great tasting meal. Serve immediately with stir-fried vegetables. Perfect! Smileys

Maybe it's time for miracles.

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word "Pasta"? Obviously, you'd think about Italian food, right? After all, pasta comes from Italy.

However, the Japanese have also adopted pasta by creating Japanese pasta. I'm not sure about you, but I've never heard of Japanese pasta. Okay, I'm a self confessed Japanese or Italian food lover but I'm not a pasta lover. It was Edward's birthday last Sunday and the pasta lover was seeking for an adventure of sorts!

#1 Pasta Zanmai, a Japanese Casual Pasta Restaurant which serves Japanese-Italian fusion food at its casual best.

Being a frequent visitor and shopper of the shopping mall, I can walk past this row many times and miss this restaurant completely, somehow. Smileys


#3 Pasta with chopstick?



At Pasta Zanmai, only one type of pasta is used – Japanese spaghetti, and it's presented in 50 different styles. Their version is rather contemporary as the pasta (spaghetti like noodles) is said to be lighter than Italian spaghetti.

Teri Hotate Piza comes with...

#6 Teriyaki Chicken Pasta


#7 Hotate (Scallop) Piza.

#8 Milky Green Tea.

#9 Ice Fruit Tea.

#10 Surume Ika (Squid).

Ebiten Unagi RC set Meal...



#13 Sunshine.

#14 Teriyaki Chicken.

#15 Unagi (Eel).

Overall, the food and service are both EXCELLENT and the prices are REASONABLE! Smileys After we had finished eating, the server brought out his my favorite

#16 Blueberry Cheesecake!

I am not sure what his favorite cake is, so I just chose my favorite one. Smileys
