Oyster Language..

Scientists in Japan have begun studying the "language" of oysters in an effort to find out what they are saying about their environment.

Researchers are monitoring the opening and closing of the molluscs in response to changes in seawater, such as reduced oxygen or red tide, a suffocating algal bloom, that can lead to mass die-offs.
Using a device they have nicknamed the "kai-lingual", a play on the Japanese word "kai" or shellfish, scientists from Kagawa University want to see if they can decode oyster movements that might warn of possible problems.

The "kai-lingual" uses a series of sensors and magnets to send information on the opening and closing of shells in response to environmental changes.
The technique has never before been used on oysters farmed for food, but has been employed by pearl oyster farmers.

"With kai-lingual, we can hear the 'screams', like 'we are in pain because of insufficient oxygen'," said Tsuneo Honjo, director of the Seto Inland Sea Regional Research Center at the university.
Pearl oysters have been placed among their food-farmed cousins where they have acted as "interpreters", alerting growers to ocean changes, he said.

"We have firmly established conversations with pearl oysters through years of research. They should translate into the reactions of the farmed oysters for us in this project," he said.
The research started in October and will last until the harvest in March, Honjo said.
"So far, oysters are talking in a healthy fashion," he said.

 SCARED that one day they’ll looked at me and say, mommy I’m getting married …. Ohhh… no no no… I don’t want to see myself in such scenario but I know in time I’ll be prepared as well as THEM coz it’s gonna be a big drama!!  bwahahaha…..eeehhh?! why not?! It’s ok to be selfish isn’t?  hahaha this is how pathetic I am!!...  to think my kids is just 5 years old,  2yrs old and 7 months old,
Going back, I still have few more days left and I’m thinking of traveling to Dubai with hubby and maybe if budget permits, will have a family night stay in one of chalet in Hilton hotel…can’t wait!!!  The weather is cold and lovely, the time is perfect and I’m ready to be the best mom ever!!

Ok... Let's face it, we all have this so called : "Guilty Pleasure" and my hubby's game pleasure is making me insane to the highest level! it's expensive and it bothers me all the time coz I just can't find anymore space to keep the stuff toys!!!...

At the very beginning,that was 6 months ago I was really the one forcing him to play and beg not to stop till he catches the biggest teddy, it's wonderful, cute and people rejoice when he caught something on the hook!! and NOW,  it's never ending, he become an expert, a daredevil, HE always have one or two  sometimes 3 stuff toys on every weekend visit giving us more and more stuff toys at home!!

It is located in City Center-Salmiya, the STORE is  full of Japanese stuff  from household items , cosmetics and more.... !

ok, let go back to the topic.....

Here's my pick of the day :

I used it last night, I should say:  It's not an easy sleep but not terrible either ,  maybe Im not comfy having something glued on my sole , the feeling is bit tight,sticky and spicy cold! but it's all worth it!
the next morning I was really surprised with the ewwwww! revelation ,  a feeling of nausea when I saw the dirt & grease after I removed the patch, I'll definitely  do the "PATCH" every other day,  GOODNESS!!

Wisemummy: Creativity!

Me and My fellow business partner loves joining bazaar we've been active participant in local bazaar since 2009 but recently had stopped due to work commitment,  most of our products are personal choice or rather handmade, that's why we called our homebiz " HANDMADE TREASURE", I'm not gonna take you long, but I just want to share one of my creation that sold 100pcs in one time exhibit...(pretty creative hah!) 

Overcoming my Dental Fear!

I guess, I'm not alone by saying I hate going to the dentist and I don't feel safe leaving my ugly-precious teeth with some pretending dentist in kuwait, there are so many horrifying dental experience I've heard and it gives me the feeling of extreme fear stepping into the dentist office

Last week, I finally decided to face my fear of going to the dentist, though, I already have 2 extractions done way back in highschool with a good dentist in Philippines, Kuwait is one of the country that rates high in poor dental practise so, I have to be more cautious and do an extenssive research before booking myself for an appointment, I already have my files in AL Rashid hospital that's one reason of keeping myself in same establishment regardless of  so many advises from my fellow,

Anyhow, I visited Alrashid hospital last week,  had all the procedures done after 2 days upon receipt of approval from the insurance company, Everything turn out to be a GREAT! , the doctors are good , friendly, professional and well mannered!!  it's a good experience by the way...! Thank you Dr. Jacob & Dr. Ferras!!

Soooo, If you happen to be in the middle of the decision of choosing the right person to handle your precious teeth, you can go to Al Rashid Hospital  and look for the same doctors I've mentioned above...!

Ohhh, I forgot to mention, for the whole month of November they're having a PROMO for 65KD  that includes zoom whitening, scaling, cleaning, consultation & open files -- TOO bad!! I was not able to post earlier but hoping they'll extend their promo coz I needed one as well...

Woman gets 100 silicone injections to have the world’s biggest lips

This gives me a goose bumps!! as in super ewwwwww....!! I pity how this teen think and how she was molded with superficial fantasy, oh my gosssshh...I can't even look at her! but i'll post her story here, a better way to read when I felt like i'm going to be crazy at times!!! but seriously, she really needs professional mental help....

Meet Kristina Rei, the woman who now has the world’s biggest lips.

She’s only 22 and has spent £4,000 on lip injections in the hopes of resembling her favourite film heroine, Jessica Rabbit.
The nail technician from St. Petersburg, Russia was convinced her thin lips were ugly, so she opted to get a lip job – 100 of them - and aims to make her enormous pout even bigger

Speaking about her plump pout, Rei said: “I think I look fantastic and it makes me happy. Sometimes strangers shout names at me in the street “like big lips” but I don't care. I want to go more extreme. I want to look like a cartoon character.”

She added: “I am addicted to it - I love it.”

Rei has wanted her lips enhanced since she was four years old, and says she was always insecure about her appearance - and childhood teasing didn’t help her confidence. Russian TV adverts that promote cosmetic surgery are common, she said, giving her the idea at a very young age.

She got her first injection at 17, and hasn't looked back. Rei can eat, speak and kiss the same way she did before and says she hasn’t suffered any painful after-effects.
She said: “Other than the way I look, my lips haven't had a big impact on my life, so I'm definitely not going to stop now.”

Consultant plastic surgeon Dr Yannis Alexandrides of
111 Harley St. told Yahoo! Lifestyle: “Kristina's obsession with the lip injections means she may suffer from body dysmorphia and this would not make her a good candidate for more cosmetic enhancement.”
He believes she maybe concerned with society’s perception of beauty he said: “People associate very thin lips with ageing and full lips with youth and trustworthy qualities.”

Dr Alexandrides added: “In the long run her injections are not good and go against good aesthetics.”

The beauty addict plans to have more injections as she feels her lips are “definitely too small at the moment.”

She said: “My big lips have helped boost my confidence. Even my parents are happy for me. They really don’t care about my appearance. Some of my friends have told me I shouldn’t go any bigger but I’m not satisfied yet.”

Beyond her lips Rei hopes to have even more cosmetic work done in the future, including a boob and nose job and pointed ears “like an elf.”

New Internet Tycoon Is Only 8-Years-Old

At first impression, Harli Jordean is just another cute, pint-sized kid who loves playing games. Totally adorable right? But little did his parents know he would make it big as an internet businessman. Did we mention that he's only 8-years-old?
Harli's budding entrepreneurship skills began when he lost his marbles to an older kid. He and his mom then went online to order more. It seems that the marble business isn't so big in the UK, so Harli decided he would start his own website selling marbles.

It soon grew into a successful company, raking in thousands of pounds a year. A simple tub of marbles at Marble King goes for 7.99 pounds (S$16.40), while a limited edition Duke of York solitaire tables can set you back 599 pounds. Demand for products is so high that Harli has had to recruit help from his mum and two older brothers.

Harli loves being the boss and wants to turn his marble biz into a chain of toy stores. He told the Daily Mail: “My dream is to have a chain of stores like Hamleys – it will be one of the biggest toy stores in the world but selling all sorts of marbles.”


I wish I can work with his cute fellow!!... Unfair!

Today is a lousy day!...
While everybody is in their absolute holiday mood,  I’m kinda freakin out coz our company did not give us a holiday, In short, they don’t want to pay extra overtime to the people in the field and all who requires to work over the weekend or so….
I was really disappointed seeing the management going into the system of ‘ MONEY,MONEY,MONEY”  I was under the impression that the company is now a graveyard governed by someone who  is  puppet of a MAD & UNHAPPY person  and wants everyone to do the way  he wants to live his LIFE!!!..
 A statement released  that OUR company has gone into a tremendous profit this year!  Yet  upper positions are too scared to lessen their bonus for the year SO THEY HAVE TO CHOoSE BETWEEN SHARING IT OR GETTING IT ALL TO THEIR POCKETS! …
Ohhh….! That’s not it,   our salary was delay you know why??!!  Because authorize signatory is ON LEAVE!!!  He’s too lazy to just sign and click on the button to transfer the funds!!...  EXTREMELY unbelievable……!
 it's funny!! how the picture demonstrate the real score....!
