Wohooo!!! a diet method that’s for me!!

Thursday, August 16th, 2007

surfing the net you really do find the weirdest things…  this time i stumbled upon a Sloth’s dream dieting method - The Sleep diet. In the Washingtonpost website,  the article say messing up you’re sleeping pattern or not getting enough sleep could cause more damaged  than being caught by ur boss at work.. or being playfully attacked by the girlfriend cuase she want attention..

…The analysis of a nationally representative sample of nearly 10,000 adults found that those between the ages of 32 and 49 who sleep less than seven hours a night are significantly more likely to be obese.

  this other website - meltdown.com says a few very interesting stuff which could help explain  why sleeping is great, and help lose weight

…sleep ranks with great food and terrific sex as one of life’s greatest pleasures. Your body slows down to rebuild and replenish. Brain waves fall to just 5 cycles per second, down from over 14 cycles per second in the waking state. Your metabolism falls to its lowest rate, your basal body metabolic rate…  

… Because your body burns 65% of its daily calories keeping your basic body functions going. While you’re dreaming, your body is converting that hated fat into adenosine triphoshate (ATP), the chemical energy your body uses as fuel.

 there are other site that thinks sleeping does other stuff related to mermory control…  it goes to to show that the sloths is for the right stuff!! hehehe


My Piggy Bank - the sofa

Monday, August 13th, 2007

I recently got in touch with a very dear friend of mine from my jr high/high school dayz.  He’s a blogger as well which was cool cuase its been over a decade since i last spoken to him (still haven’t).  I explored his blog much more focused on a subject then mine would ever be but man he knows his sh!t how to save every penny!  i ‘m particularly found his post about the richest member of his family to works very well for me.  Basically, he slept on his couch, woke up to lose loadzx of chump change.  ends up finding $12.38 USD..  After i read it, i dove right into my sofa and dug out $25.30HKD myself.. altho my girlfriend saw and immediately decides to claim it for herself. of course i laugh at her as i pocket the change since she never naps on the sofa and ever carry money in her pockets.. thinking about it i dont think any of her trousers/skirts have pockets.. but the funnier thing is.. we only had this sofa for 4 months..  how much it have accumulated over a year?  haha  See why this guys is a dear friend? - first thing i do cuase of him is save/recover lost money!!  thanks man!!

Community Website the new form of communication?

Thursday, July 26th, 2007

I recently read an article called Teen Entrepreneurs Say Email is for Work Only it has referenced in several different sources that kids nowadays is moving out of email messaging to messaging via community website such as Facebook, Myspace or other social networks.   Now I can see how some people could think that email could soon be a way for work/business types only but places like facebook and myspace still need to use a valid email to comfirm the legitmate signups. 

Another part also says the IM will be replaced by text messaging now that is the probably only true to a certain extent.  what i mean by this is the fact that it’ll depend on the cost of texting.  Some countries such as UK (that I know of)  has contractual plans which provides free texting but other places such as Hong Kong where making a call is cheaper than texting than IM won’t be replaced. 

This article did get me thinking even more..  what if its not the emails or the IM’s being replaced but the medium instead?  Mobile phones, PDAs, smartphones are soo technologically advanced it has replace laptops and desktops.  could extremly portable devices end up replace the bigger machines like laptops and desktops in regards of ways to communcate?  Atleast community website like facebook and myspace has there counterpart facebook mobile/ myspace mobile. MSN/SKYPE also has there own mobility in smartphones/PDAs. i think i’m drifting a bit but..  can it be..  the old phrase could be wrong…?  maybe bigger isn’t always better!!


Does Dancing and Martial Arts come hand in hand?

Tuesday, July 10th, 2007


My previous post about Martials art does state that i am a fan of bruce lee and have interest in Jeet kune do and other various forms of martials such as Capoeira, but i also have a great interest in dancing.   I’ve always felt the two had simularities.   After reading this article in MI: Martial Arts and Culture, its pretty much strengthed my belief.  Not only it mentions that the late great Bruce Lee was a Cha Cha Champion in Hong Kong, it also mentions a martial art that was done in a way that mask the training in a form of dancing, Capoeira! There are theories that Break Dancing orignated from Capoeira

Many of the same skills in dance are just applicable to the martial arts, and especially in that of Kung Fu where you are not just employing power but all the subtle talents of dancing as well.


World of Martials Arts

Wednesday, June 20th, 2007

Martial arts vary widely, and may focus on strikes, grappling, or weapons training. Below is a list of examples that make?use of these areas that I know of:


  • Punching - Boxing, Shao-Lin Long Fist
  • Kicking - Capoeira, Taekwondo
  • Other strikes (e.g. Elbows, knees, open-hand) - Karate, Muay Thai, Wing Chun,


  • Throwing - Judo, Jiu Jitsu
  • Joint lock - Aikido, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Hapkido
  • Pinning Techniques - Wrestling, Judo


  • Traditional Weaponry - Fencing,Kendo

My all time favourite art is the Jeet Kun do because its taken the best and most efficient strikes &?moves from various arts.? Also,?Bruce lee is my hero so i could be a little bias.

Fantasy arts

There are a few other arts if was real I love to study (I’m also a fan of Stephen Chow)

  • From the King of Beggers - 睡夢羅漢拳 - Sleeping Monk Fist

there are others… I just can’t think of them at the moment.

The list above that are underlined are the arts that?I would love to take up.? Althoough I’m getting old so?I will?probably just appreciate them from afar and?end up only doing Tai Chi,? shame that my parents back in the day were too afraid that I’d use it aganist my elder sister.? which is a bit silly considering Martial Arts is meant to develop self control disciple and alll that jazz. I simplily cannot understnad my folks opinion on this..
