The Wor(l)d Helo Smartband

Helo stands for Health and Lifestyle Oracle, it is a very advance and new wearable wristband by Wor(l)d which can be worn 24 hours a day to monitor our and our loved ones health well being and physical condition on the go and when we sleep.  It can measure : Blood Pressure, ECG, Heart Rate, Breath Rate, Mood/Energy, Steps and calories burned on a 30 to 120 mins basis.  I set mine on 60 minutes basis, a report will be produced every hourly.


This is the smart and sexy looking wristband of Helo.  The wristband is designed to fit small to big (musculine) wrist. This is my Helo, fitted nicely on my slim wrist without having to trim the band.

Both Android (has to be Android 4.3 and above) and iOS can download the Helo Apps, the Helo device will link to your handphone via bluetooth.  Amazingly the Helo wristband has the capacity to store all the data, the data can be viewed in your phone as soon as a link is established.

unlike the rest of the wristband in the market, Wor(l)d added extra features to include semi germ stones of Germanium and Himalayan Salt and Hematite for extra health benefits.  These stones are mounted on platinum plate, and can be fitted on the wristband which are in direct contact with our skin when we put on the wristband.
The health benefits of the Germanium, Himalayan Salt and Hematite can be found in many articles in the internet.   

It uses an innovative and advance sensor to obtain data from our body to give an ambulatory measurements as accurate as possible for our self evaluation. 

Another important function of Helo is the Panic Button.  Yes, there is a panic button for emergency purpose, just by pressing the side button 2 times,  the person(s) that you registered in the Guardian-SOS will be alerted via sms with the time, location and google map on the last location where the button was pressed.  
this feature is specially beneficial for the elderly who suddenly feel unwell and children whom find themselves in unsafe situation.

I personally am amazed with Helo.  It can only be bought online at one single price from Wor(l)d website and deliver direct to your doorstep.  You could use my username : agnescfl (l as in small letter L) or to make the purchase, you are automatically become a member upon purchase and get hold of the opportunity if you wish to.

Our Guard Dog - Lucky (2012-11.10.2016)

Our backyard resident and guard dog named Lucky, has passed away peacefully last night.  We only found out when my better half went to feed him last night.  He was a very active dog, he would scratch the back door whenever he heard our voice to get our attention, and a very good guard dog.  He was still very active and ate a big portion of his meal the night before with no sign of him being sick.  It is sad to find him fallen into deep sleep forever.

Rest in peace, Lucky Boy, hope you find a better place in heaven.

Planting from cuttings and seeds - Fig & Avocado

We have been busy doing some fig planting project at our home for the past one month.  I ordered some hybrid fig tree cuttings from the local planter, put them in the soil and after 2 weeks or so of tender nurturing care, the cuttings have produced new shoots coming out like these..

fast forward yesterday, they have grown a bit more like the photo below.  Since their roots are still not stable yet, it is not advisable to place them outdoor.  Oh yes, the little one at the bottom right is a cutting from Spain, Don Juan, we are so glad to see its new shoots.
I ordered yet another batch of cuttings from the same planter last week.  They are now in the "incubator" waiting for the new roots and shoots to come out.  Hopefully all our cuttings will live.
 Being ambitious, I am also trying to grow avocado tree from seeds after we ate the fruits.  So far no sign of root or shoot after 1 week...

Fresh and dried fig fruits

We tasted a few more varieties of fresh fig fruits lately from a local farm.  I was trying to get the names of these figs but she has forgotten which trees she plucked them from.  Vividly she could remember one of them is TGF (Taiwan Golden Fig).  The smallest one is cute and sweet.
 anyone can identify what varieties these figs are ?

During puasa month and with Ramadan approaching, there are aplenty of dried figs for sale in the supermarket.  Being first time buying dried figs, I chose the brand that I heard regularly on the radio, Yusuf Taiyoob. 
We have counted, there are 38 pieces of dried figs compactly packed in this round plastic container.  I really love the texture of these dried figs, not overly sweet.  I can have 4-5 pieces in a day as snack.  Although my girls much prefer the fresh ones but they do not mind having one or two the dried ones while waiting for our home grown fig trees to bear fruits in 3-4 months time..hopefully earlier.

Flowers, plants and vegetable at home

Awaken by a phone call from my brother.'s already worries, it's a Saturday & still school holiday.

Had our relaxing breakfast at home, kids will be back to school next week.  My girl helped to spread avocado with milk on a slice of bread for me with her leftover avocado (her breakfast for today, obviously not used to taking fruits as breakfast :D).  It's just feel so nice to have my little girl preparing something for me.  She prepared sandwich lunch for me too on my request because I am down to cough & flu.

After breakfast, I went checking on my flowers, the progress of my tomatoes seedlings, french beans seedling, if any (still no way to be found) and my kale plant.
Finally, this single petals desert rose is blooming.

I took a picture of the three types of blooming desert roses at the front porch..I bought 3 more varieties of desert roses from the tamu last week, as you can see one of them is at the right side. 

Here is the tomatoes seedlings, growing very slowly but at least germinated about a week after planting the seeds.
one more, looking weak hopefully it will become stronger in the coming days.
my kale plant that I bought from the tamu for RM8.00.  It was in a poly bag, we re-potted it here.  I just learnt that Kale is very good for health.  I intend to add more herbs plants into my collections and start to learn how to "eat" them since they posses great nutritional values.

We are working on a planting project at our home, will update it here soon.

Meals at Sugar Bun

It's been ages since we last dined at Sugar Bun.  The whole fish set meal is the one attracted my better half to try its meals again.  I could hardly find serving of the whole fish like this in other restaurants. 
I opted for something spicy this time, I think is the asam fish set meal.  My kids chose the soupy rice and fried chicken set meals. The soupy rice came pretty late because the kitchen has forgotten our order, my kid went straight to her meal before I even have the chance to take a photo.
Overall we are happy with our meals there..the absence minded kitchen staff is a set back.

I have missed collecting the seeds from the last blooms, I must collect the seeds this time round to plant more desert roses.

I have recorded down the flowering process of its full blooms over the period of 7 days in this video.

Pumpkin Soup Fish meehoon

Recommended by a friend, we went to try the fish meehoon soup near our daughter's school.  We ordered one with fish head and the other with fresh fish meat.

When the bowl of fish head meehoon soup came, my hubby was not very pleased, because he dislikes pumpkin soup.  The soup base is not strong enough to cover the fishy taste of the fish.

First time we tried fish soup with pumpkin as main ingredient.  Overall is less than what we expected. These 2 bowls of fish head and fresh fish meehoon soup cost us RM35.00 for our breakfast.

Our first Fig Tree - Taiwan Golden Fig (TGF)

We bought our first Fig tree from the tamu place last weekend.  I first heard about fig trees from my colleague last year whom is a facebook fan of one of the local fig farm.  She told me that both the fig seedlings and fruits are expensive but the demand is good despite of the price.

Fig is a nutritious fruit contains minerals, vitamins and fiber, vitamin A, B1, B2, Calcium, iron, phosphorus, manganese, sodium, potassium & chlorine.  It is good to control and lower blood sugar level.  With that reason, we try to plant fig tree at home.  We bought a small plant in a poly bag and transplanted it to a pot with the soil mixture recommended by the nursery.  

The transplanting process of a Taiwan Golden Fig plant :

We also bought a packet of 6 pieces figs fruit (RM16.90 for 160gm) from the local mini market.  Marking our first time trying fresh fig fruits.

Hair Dye - Bigen Speedy

It's time again to dye my graying hair at home.  Though I am lazy to do it but I always remind myself that it is a great blessing that I have hair to dye..because of the hereditary gray hair, it gives me the opportunities to add colour to my hair as frequent as I required to, that's the word of comfort to myself (each time the gray hair start to appear). 

My favourite hair colour brand is Bigen though there are not many color choices, currently I am using its No.875 Copper Brown
At times I would go for total black hair dye like this one from Follow Me Natural Black selection.  Both brands can be bought from the supermarket, prices are cheaper than buying products from the saloons.

 There are 2 tube paste inside the Bigen box, Tube 1 is the color paste, Tube 2 is the Hair color conditioner 
an instruction leaflet, disposable glove and a comb
my graying hair
no difference from an 80 years old lady...haaaahaaa..
squeeze the No, 1 and No.2 paste onto the comb
start applying the paste by combing onto the hair, I did this in front of the mirror so that I can see where I miss..cover the hair up with a shower cap for 30-40 minutes more or less.  During such time I  could walk around the house to get things done. 

Rinse, wash and dry my hair.  Taadaaa...gray hair have been covered

top and side view..this could last for 3-4 weeks till another round of colouring.
