Nu Skin

In year 2003, I went to USA for business and pleasure. I spent almost 7 weeks in USA. When I came back, I noticed that the side of my face, just below the ears, started to develop acne. It became bad. My friends asked what happened. AR claimed that it is the dryness of the country that contributed to this outbreak. He recommended a famous skin doctor near where I work. This skin doctor has treated AR, bahija, rotitelur and a lot of our friends. I went to see her. The doctor said that I have oily skin and that I should stop using whatever cleanser I was using (at that time, I was using Dove and Kao Biore).

She gave me a cleanser and an acne lotion. And her cleanser was not those expensive ones that most of the girls used. My cleanser cost me RM20 and it lasts for 3 months! How’s that for economy? It’s even cheaper than Kao Biore.

Within a year, I was healed!

I remember thinking to myself that I don’t have to use the acme lotion anymore. I remember putting the spare lotion aside.

Then something happened. My friends noticed that I had dry skins on the cheek and the jaw. They claimed that it is the cleanser I was using. It’s too dry they said. Bahija and Miss Peace tried it before and they were horrified that it was so dry.

Then Alpinesis also commented that my skin was peeling. He sells Nu Skin part time and recommended me the moisturizer and a scrub. He has been trying to ask me to try the products but I always say no. I mean, in my mind, the skin specialist, a doctor, should be a better judge than these multi-level pyramid scheme salesman. Right? I mean, people studied to be a doctor… what’s more a skin specialist (which meant a few more years of study and practice). I told him that the doctor said I have oily skin. Why should I need moisturizer. He said trust him. He quoted many of his customers’ testimonials. Bla… bla...

But, after hearing all these negative things, I succumbed to the multi-level-pyramid scheme product.

I tried Nu Skin moisturizer for a month. Instead of moisturizing me, the damn thing causes outbreak! I was healed except for some dry skin. Now, I am back to 2003 era. Pimples are popping out at the side of my face!

Quickly I stopped using the product and consulted the skin doctor. She reprimanded me for using the moisturizer. I said but I have dry skin. Obviously it could be your cleanser too. She said the dry-ness is due to being in hot sun or being in an a/c room, not the cleanser. I believe her.

I curse the day I succumbed to a multi-level product. Say NO to Nu Skin! Celaka product.

One million daimoku

In April 2008, Anne and I started our resolution to chant 1 million daimoku in one year. It's already Jan - and I am only one-third of the way. I really need to WORK HARDER - coz I made another 1 million resolution from Jan - Dec 2009. The chart you see on the right of this post is a chart that we put beside our butsudan. It tracked our chanting progress. Every 20 minute, we coloured one box. Mine is the one on top, Anne's at the bottom - you can see that she made much better progress than me! Hmmm.. come to think of it, I am not even at one third!! --- Edit 22 March 2009: Thanks to Google, a couple of friends in faith found this post and they want to know how many hours of chanting is required to achieve one million diamoku. Here it is. Based on our publication in Malaysia, 20 minutes of chanting is equivalent to 1,000 daimoku. So, one hour is 3,000 daimoku. 1 million would take about 333 hours. --- Edit 8 April 2018: Checking my blogger stats, this post is pretty hi

Why did we choose Sekolah Kebangsaan Taman Megah?

Which school did we transfer Jane to, that's probably what is in your mind? The graphics and the title above would have informed you the name of this school. But why this school? We first heard of Sekolah Kebangsaan Taman Megah from a friend. Her 8 and 11 year old daughters are now studying there. Typically, she doesn't really talk much about the school but when probed further, she told us all about the school. There are few things she said which struck me really hard. The first being that the kids and the staff in the school are a happy lot. Yes, even the staff. She said when you go to the school and talked to the teachers, the Headmistress Puan Khoo or even the office staff, you will feel an ambiance of  warmth and politeness from everyone. It's a very pleasant feeling, unlike many schools where the atmosphere is cold. And she also said that the children there, her own two daughters, are always looking forward to school. The second thing she said which also left

Who is the official service center for Seiko watches?

The Great Blue; Kinetic Auto Relay 100M I have a 15 year old Seiko watch which I love very much. It's a Great Blue series and kinda one-of-its-kind, because Seiko discontinued it as soon as it was launch. So, there are very limited number of units. The watch I own is a Kinetic Auto Relay which means it is powered by my arm movement. And the nice thing about it is that if I don't use my watch, it hands will not move but the Kinetic capacitor which stores energy (up to 4 years of inactivity) will continue to keep track of the time. When I picked up the watch and shake it a bit, it will wake up and auto adjust to the correct time whether it is AM or PM. But my watch is 15 year old. At that age, the capacitor cannot hold a lot of charges. These days if I left my watch unused for 2 days, the watch stopped keeping time. I need to get the capacitor replaced. But who is the official service center for Seiko? The thing about luxury watches is that if you don't send it to
