I found this article on 'kissing' in "The Malaysian Women's Weekly" which i find particularly interesting as its published in a Malaysian magazine. This is simply because I find Malaysia a country who cannot accept the general view of its people.
As a student of law, I have studied a little on the Malaysian Constitution, and can clearly see that this is not a very open-minded country. Yes, we are allowed to follow are own religious law, but if you look closely you see that we still are grounded by lots of the Islamic laws.
As for today, i want to highlight this article that was published in the august issue of the women's weekly simple because i feel that the more they publish, the more they encourage! You and I, both have heard lots of stories of people getting caught by the cops for making out in a public area. Well its Malaysia, and although its constitution has no such rule for non-muslims, we would still be considered breaking the law as it is said to be breaking an obligatory law of behaving immorally in a public place. I have not heard of such cases in any other countries, but if you have please tell us your story.
As for the article, here is the few kissing facts i adapted to woo your taste buds:
A Kiss a day keeps the dentist away!
Kissing encourages saliva to wash away food from the teeth and lowers the level of the acid that causes decay, prevents plaque build up.
Burn Baby, Burn
Good, rich passionate kissing can help you burn up to 600 calories per hour. From the kissing cure by Dr. Ruth McConnell, graphic management press.
The Science of Kissing
The scientific term of kissing is philematology and our brains have special neurons that help us locate each other’s lips in the dark.
Kissing can relieve headaches. With relaxation, the tension restricts blood vessels in the brain are released. Quality is the key
First Movie kiss
John C Rice kissed May Irwin in a film called ‘the kiss’ 1896
With your face less than a breath away, open and close your eyelids against your partners. If done correctly, the fluttering sensation will match the one in your heart.
The longest Kiss
An American couple kissed non stop for a record 30 hours, 50 minutes and 27 seconds on December 5, 2001, at the TV studios of Riki Lake, New York City, USA
This is a very controversial issue and I am pretty sure, you have got lots to say. So start the comment ball rolling. Would love to here your comments on this one!

This sequence of numbers were given to me a month go in a question asking, " What do these numbers mean?" This question was part of a "KoKo Crunch" crossword puzzle i simply took part in. Now if you would like to attempt this question do not read the following paragraphs of this post till you give up or break the code. Some clues: there are 9 letters to the answer, moving the numbers around might make it easier to solve.
Did you attempt the question? If yes, scroll down. If No, then how about giving it a go? You never know you could be a great code breaker. But if you still insist that you do not want to, then scroll down anyways...
Here is the funny bit, i won this competition not by knowing the answer, but by simply guessing the answer. Now that i won, i was asked how i had answered all the questions. Now i have an answer for every other question except this one because like i said before i simply made a guess.
So here i am today, a 'simply guess code breaker', blogging about this sequence of numbers. I was pretty shocked when i saw the results as i never expected to make such an intelligent guess.
Well, to answer this question, it would be wise to re-arrange the numbers in increasing order. By doing so the sequence of numbers you can now see is the world's most famous mathematical progression, the FIBONACCI progression. Yes that is indeed the answer, FIBONACCI. A Fibonacci progression is a progression in which each term is equal to the sum of two preceding terms. Apparently flower petals follow the fibonacci numbers as well.
Now how many of you figured this one out? Well to those who did, congratulations! and those who did not, don't worry it is not the end of the world. Just think of it as a bit of trivia. After all i myself did not figure it out. I simply guessed the remaining letters.

According to the little oxford dictionary, the word "respect" means:
- 1 a feeling of admiration for someone because of their qualities or achievements
- 2 consideration for feelings or rights of others
- 3 (respects) polite greetings and right behaviour.
- 4 a particular aspect, point, or detail
- 1 have respect for
- 2 avoid harming or interfering with
- 3 agree to observe a law, principle
Some people tend to misuse this word, and a whole misunderstanding would then take place. When this particular word is used at people like these in telling them that they are so disrespectful, the defence always heard would be," what makes you think you are not disrespectful?" Only a handful of people would except this critical comment and move into silence accepting it.
Now I am not trying to insult those who misuse this word, but I blog today on this topic to show you my opinion that respect is a strong word with a very strong meaning. In the situation above, the defence was not relevant as no evidence was shown that he/she (who commented) had shown disrespect. A Greek Mythologist once said that in order to the use a word, you must first have respect for that word, only then use the word without violating its true meaning.
I choose a clear and disturbing example of disrespect, where a guy goes around touching a girl all over jokingly without her consent, this in law is defined as assault. Here the guy has clearly no respect for the girl. Yes he may be assaulting her, but the only reason for doing so here was simply due to disrespect.
No offence to men, but looking at the actual meaning of this word (the bold ones), it looks like very few men know how to respect a woman. Yes, it takes alot, but the effort you put in is what we girls notice. Every woman would love to be treated with some respect.
This blog is just my opinion to the word "respect" and how it should be used. Therefore i hope I have not offended anyone in anyway. So the next time you use the word "respect", think about my opinion or open the dictionary.

Today we hear loads of weird and unique wedding stories how couples choose different wedding stlyes than the usual church event. Beaches have now become a popular spot for weddings. Some people prefer to go for an exotic style and choose the mountain tops as their spot. But what about doing something unique and different? What about getting married online? Its 2004, and everybody seems to be so hooked up with the internet, so why not go IT crazy, and get married online?
I surfed around, and found no such thing as a marriage taking place online. I then identified the problem to this. There was no such thing as an online priest. Now for two people to get married (christians), all they would need is a priest to marry them and each other. So since this it is 2004, why aint there any priest based online? I think that would be a fantastic wedding idea especially for those in a long distance relationship.
Well thats just a new idea. So wat exotic unique plans do you'll have for a great wedding experience?
