Celebrating Milk.

Assalamualaikum WBT,

When I was studying in university, my lecturer asked each and everyone of us *students to come out with a campaign and present it in front of the class. I chose to do more on drinking milk campaign sadly, unfortunately, my campaign did not proceed. I do not know why, well, never mind then right.

Now, as the time goes by, milk ads, articles and commercials would always be on television. Yes, most of on the television were those infant mild formula which actually not very good, why? because its somesort not the real milk. Well, something like that.

Therefore, I chose to write more on milk. Since the first World Milk Day was held in 2001, many countries throughout the world have participated in the celebration and the number is growing day by day. Did you know that milk is considered "nature's wellness drink"? The creamy white beverage contains calcium, vitamin D, phosphorous and a balance of other nutrients that have been proven to build your bones and teeth as well as promote the healthy function of your muscles and blood vessels. And in the midst of all the new vitamin waters, energy drinks and other artificially contrived beverages, milk is a healthy choices from mother earth. 

People who are drinking milk considered fat but it is actually very wrong. There was a research done by Dr Wendy Brazilian, the author of The SuperFoodsRx Diet and co-owner of San Diego based Bazilian's Health Clinic proved that "mothers who drink milk are more likely to have daughters who drink milk and milk drinkers tend to have healthier overall diets and tend to be leaner than non-milk drinkers".

But then I do aware of those who have this lactose intolerant which they cannot drink milk or eat any milk-based products. To those who have this problem, please go to your doctors and ask them about what to eat and what not to eat. Meaning, you have to consult your nutritionist because you need to know the portions that your body needs and without activating the intolerance. 

Plus, drinking milk is actually very good, but please, do not confused yourself with condensed milk, where, it surely do not have any of those vitamins mentioned in pure milk. When I was little, my mum bought me milk in that box but I did not drink it, why? At that time, to me it tasted funny, I did not like that taste. Seriously, but as I growing up, I do like the taste of milk,I love it very much, With the nutrients mentioned in various articles, it is likely to be very well balanced drink. 

By drinking milk, it also can be the agent to build your body. Right?

That is all from, me, Drink Milk For Your Health.

Assalamualaikum WBT

Raya Cards over Social Messages.

Assalamualaikum WBT,

Sometimes I wonder, would my English skill put me down? Honestly, I do not have the answer for that, but one thing I know now, I need to lower down my expectation towards things. Anything. Yes.

Well, Eid Fitr is around the corner now. I need to send out my raya cards to everyone. Yes, I am a little bit traditional when it comes to raya. Raya cards are like, a must. I prefer cards over SMS. I don't know. I really love the feel of it. I like it. Love it. 

Nowadays, people tend to use social media to send raya wishes. Well, I do that too, but I too send cards to those I love. As for me, sending raya cards is like something that needs to be refreshed. People need to know that spending on raya cards and also stamps is not that much compared to the feeling, emotions when they received the cards. Love right?

Compared to personal message, facebook wishes, tweets, whatsapp message, those raya wishes just there and will be gone as second the new one comes in. But, not raya cards when you received that raya card, you will put that somewhere where people could see and you could see it too. Well, at least, that what I usually do when I received raya cards.

But nowadays, people preferred easy things right? Where they could just send tonnes of raya wishes to their friends without fail, unless the bill is on hold. Hihu... but, hey, people surely have different views on things. Why make this complicated, right? As for me, sending raya cards it not troublesome as people see it. I really don't mind. I love to write raya cards. Love it.

Well, as for a start, I got a raya card from this one blogger, Suria Amanda. Thanks kak, surely will return the favour. Thanks again.

What about you? Favour raya card? Or not?

Assalamualaikum WBT

Learning Styles : Children Edition.

Assalamualaikum WBT,

Well, it has been awhile since I wrote about Learning Strategies, but now, I am going to write about its sister, Learning Styles. Hehe.. Both learning Strategies and learning Styles have their similarities and differences, but they actually quite different.

Today, I read about learning styles written by Priscilla Dunstan who is a behavioural researcher and creator of the Dunstan Baby Language and author of Child Sense and Calm The Crying. Dunstan pointed out four (4) types of children in learning styles. 

1. Visual children
2. Auditory children
4. Taste/smell children

1. Visual Children

Visual children will love the order of the alphabet. They love learning using visuals such as pictures, words, writing on chalkboards and whatnot. Visual children actually need help from the auditory aspect, why? because no matter how good their styles in learning using visual, but without great auditory support, I mean, those who assist them to pronounce the words correctly, well, it is the defect of learning style.

2. Auditory Children

Auditory children love sounds. They will love musics, why? Music is sound. In terms of creativity, they would recognised the words easily because they listened to it. But, it too has its own defect, one for sure is, these auditory children would have tough time recognising the words, for example, if they were showed with flashcards, they would not straight away know the words, why? Because, flashcards does not have sounds, Unless, they created one now. One good way to escape from this problem, the parents MUST incorporate visual with the sound. That would added up the value to the learning style.

3. Tactile Children

Tactile children is quite special. In learning language, we have a lot of unique identities with children. Some learned very fast, some would have a hard time just to remember the letters. Hard right? But, tactile children sometimes are very clever but they have this feeling of hypersensitive, whereas, they happened to hate or dislikes a lot of things. Sometimes, they need to be treated as much care as possible. Having said that, they need something that really could keep them occupied. Usually, tactile children love games,  arcade, physical games, moulding words using Play-Doh and whatnot. As long as it keep them occupied, they its good. So, tactile children involved almost all of the learning styles. What ever that you could think of. Yes. 

4. Taste/Smell Children

Taste/smell children really need something else. They need to feel safe and nurtured in order to learn. Interest is the key point here. Everything must have the interest, they are special. Let say, books that have example of any skin of animals, let say, a crocodile, and it has the rough skin. By reading together with taste/smell children, it will create this bond and this bond is the key point too. It shows that the parents are also interested in learning and it makes the children feel that they on the right track with learning. Lovely. By making the experience of learning to read sensory, your child will not only gain valuable skill but also build on the pleasure of learning. Hows that for a start? 

These styles were researched by Dunstan, and lovely, she really captured the essence of learning styles in children. In learning language, the best ever to learning language is from birth to two years old. Linguists also came out with this hypotheses, Critical Period. So, that is why, you will determine your children's mother tongue. Why? Everything you speak will be the first language for you child, if you determined to speak English language and wished that English language would be your child's first language, then, you have to expose your child with English language by speaking English language all the time with correct Grammar, otherwise, without proper grammar, your child with 'inherit' the grammatical errors made by the parents. It would hard to correct the mistake then, when the child acquire the language already. 

So, if you reader have children, then it is better to actually look thoroughly what are the preferences of your children. Visual? Auditory? Taste/smell? or Tactile? It is important that you walk with your children through the learning period. Vital. Crucial.

That is all for now.

Assalamualaikum WBT

p/s: reading is too crucial. Mark that Parents!

Motivational Talk : Feeling.

Assalamualaikum WBT,

Today, I want to talk about "feeling". Yes, feeling.

Sometimes, what we saw in other peoples' appearances is not the real deal. Sometimes, people are using their outter layers to actually make believe that they are who they are, but in real life, they are not.

Why are they doing this?

Well, I sometimes, too, have this insecurity about myself. I often want to get out from my own life and do something that people would care less about me. I wished people do not know me, I wished they never knew me, at all. I wished but I can't. I really can't. Why? because we built in this world to live the life given to us, not to just live it but we actually need to do something with it.


Well, out existence might be not really important to others, but trust me, there are people who willing to accept us as we are. Who are they? Our parents, our friends, our closest friends, our partner. These people really love us as who we really are. They accepted us because they know us, they love us, most important, they trust us.

Yes, sometimes, insecurity does put something our own shoulders right? But, that is life. God knows best. God knows what is best for us. Sometimes, He put extremely hard test on us just because He knows that we would able to survive that test. God gives other people different test.

We do not know what other people are facing in their lives. What we know is sometimes not what we really know. Simple as that. So? From now on my friends, keep your head held high and start walking. Walk your path like a boss. No one could say NO to you but yourself.

Assalamualaikum WBT

p/s: love it.
