在Sepang International Circuit 举行的F1 Petronas Grand Prix KL 2008 终于落幕了。为期三天的赛事在 21 – 23/3/2008 举行,最后一天的决赛日最多人观赏。也许是星期天吧,连油棕园也被利用成为临时的停车场!

虽然我的票是连续三天都可以进场,但是我选择了观赏最后一天的赛事。最让我惊讶的,要数那RM50一张的停车贴纸!一辆车RM50,上千辆车涌入会场的话,真的是很好赚也!话虽如此,买一张RM50的停车贴纸,其实可以连续使用三天,如果你三天都来报到的话,也算值回票钱啦。

进场时,所有的饮料一律不准带进去。我们只得在里面购买饮料,一罐RM5 的100 Plus,很贵吧!此外,在这么炽热的地方,另外一种饮料 – Tiger 也很受落,不然大家快中暑了!看到很多赤裸上身的老外,有些很大方的露肚腩;有些则看起来像女人的神态;当然也不乏一些苦练肌肉者;这样的场合怎么少得了美女的陪伴,有些穿的很清凉,短裤和背心,或tube和到膝裤。

下午3pm正,比赛正式开始!Vroom, vroom, vroom…..一流的车速,快而稳健,转弯也很干净利落。一轮拉轮之战,Kimi Raikkonen (Ferrari) 不负众望赢了这次的比赛,不愧为车神的化身!

Here are some information I would like to share with my dearest friends.

It is worth to undergo for a comprehensive screening if you haven’t do so. The benefit is you can be assured with your health status and take precaution if anything goes wrong at the early stage of detection.

Early detection and prevention will reduce the forming of uncureable diseases. So my friends, I have found some useful information here for the sake of your health. Please be patient to read until the end. This is some piece of information found in one of the clinic I do my body check for the past 5 years.

Aims Of Screening Programs:

  • To identify well persons with potential health risk factors.
  • To identify asymptomatic persons with early signs of the disease.
  • To evaluate your health status & early prevention of disease

Why Screen In The First Place?

Early detection and prevention will reduce the incidence of diseases and ensure better chances of a full recovery.

Examples…

Resting ECG can detect heart strain and stress test can detect early signs of heart disease. Heart related problems can be controlled or prevented by:-

  • Reduction in cholesterol.
  • Reduction in high blood pressure.
  • Reduction in weight.
  • Well controlled diabetes mellitus.
  • Reduction in smoking.

Breast cancer is by far the most common cancer in women and the incidence is increasing. Early detection increases the chances of a more effective treatment.

Effective treatment of cervical cancer (women) and prostate cancer (men) are more likely, if detected early.

High blood pressure, anaemia and weight problem can also be detected, and subsequently be treated and monitored.

One-on-One Attention

Tailored specifically to each participants age, sex and lifestyle behaviour, these thorough examinations are especially valuable in uncovering medical problems that may otherwise have gone undetected. Our program offers one-on-one attention, plenty of time for questions and discussion, personal follow-up and testing, all conducted at a nationally recognised medical centre, complete with modern technology and highly trained staff.

When To Screen?

Generally, individuals are encouraged to undergo a full medical screening every 3-5 years up to the age of 50 years.This should then be followed by a similar screening every 1-2 years.

SOME INFO ON TESTS IN THE PACKAGES:

What is Liquid-based Pap Test (ThinPrep Pap Test)?

This is a test for woman who has sexual life and the test is to detect any cervical cancer (At our laboratory, this test is done using the ThinPrep Pap Test method which is FDA-approved and differs from the conventional Pap Smear, in that, after the cells are obtained in the usual manner, the cells are placed directly in a collection vial containing a fluid preservative. A processor in the laboratory separates the cells from other materials such as blood and mucus and the cells are then transferred to a slide to form a uniform, thin layer that is much easier to read and interpret compared to the conventional method)

Mammogram?

Is a test for ladies above 40 years old.

是的,今天是大选日!1400万合格选民履行公民的责任,就在今天!

根据气象报告,中午会有阴霾阵雨,所以促请选民尽量选择上午去投票。

另一边厢,我接获朋友的sms, 敦促大家尽量选择下午2时过后才去投票,为什么呢?因为据一名曾经是选举委员会的成员透露的消息,这是为了避免“鬼票”事件在下午上演。

如果真的发生这样的事件,那么老百姓远途跋涉所投下的一票就变得不神圣、也不具意义了。反正到后来也会被势大的一方使诈来获胜。 公道自在人心!!

话说回来,手指甲墨汁无法实践的原因何在?

据悉,本届全国大选选委会特从印度购买一批价值200万元的不脱色印度墨汁,说要涂在每个前往投票的选民的手指甲上,以防该选民再去另一个投票站再投票。这是为了预防有人使诈的措施,听起来还可行。怎知在投票日的前三天,选委会突然临时取消此措施,理由是基于“公众安全”为大前提,听闻有人也引进这种墨汁,企图制造混乱,譬如诱骗或强逼性地涂在选民手指甲。这些价值不菲的印度墨汁不但无法派上用场,还显示了选委会的处事不当,欠缺深谋远虑,造成国家损失,不被人民骂个狗血淋头才怪!

在本届大选的课题中,人民满怀希望的寻求改变,这个紧系着国家未来动向的大选,你又是如何看待呢?
