As I’v mentioned an in earlier blog post,  I am attending an interview at Malaysia IMM for my permanent residence application on 3rd September 2013. So people wish me luck that I’m gonna ace it so I can move on the next level of the application.

The first few things that the officer told me I got to know are the Malaysia National Anthem and “Rukun Negara” so here’s the information in case anyone is looking..

1.Lyrics for Malaysia’s  National Anthem ” Negaraku”

Negaraku….
Tanah tumpahnya darahku,
Rakyat hidup, bersatu dan maju,
Rahmat bahagia, Tuhan kurniakan,
Raja kita, Selamat bertakhta!
Rahmat bahagia, Tuhan kurniakan,
Raja kita, Selamat bertakhta!

 

2. Rukun Negara

  • Kepercayaan kepada Tuhan
  • Kesetiaan kepada Raja dan Negara
  • Keluhuran Perlembagaan
  • Kedaulatan Undang-Undang
  • Kesopanan dan Kesusilaan

 

I’ve no idea what other questions they may ask but I guess basic things like the name of the prime minister, Dato Sri Mohd Najib Tun Razak, National Flower (Bunga Raya or Hibiscus) or maybe info about about the flag, Jalur Gemilang as I found out below: (sorry its’s in Malay)

Bendera Malaysia mengandungi 14 jalur merah dan putih (melintang) yang sama lebar bermula dengan jalur merah di sebelah atas dan berakhir dengan jalur putih di sebelah bawah, tanda keanggotaan yang sama dalam persekutuan 13 buah negeri – Johor, Kedah, Kelantan, Melaka, Negeri Sembilan, Pahang, Pulau Pinang, Perak, Perlis, Sabah, Sarawak, Selangor dan Terengganu dan Kerajaan Persekutuan.

Bahagian yang berwarna biru tua di atas sebelah kiri membawa ke bawah hingga atas jalur merah yang kelima itu maknanya perpaduan rakyat Malaysia. Bahagian biru tua itu mengandungi anak bulan tanda Agama Islam – agama rasmi Malaysia. Bintang pecah 14 itu tanda perpaduan 13 buah negeri dan Kerajaan Persekutuan. Warna kuning pada anak bulan dan bintang itu ialah warna Diraja bagi Duli-duli Yang Maha Mulia Raja-raja.

Semasa sambutan kemerdekaan ke 40, pada 31 Ogos 1997 Perdana Menteri Malaysia, Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad telah memilih nama Jalur Gemilang bagi bendera Malaysia.

 

Anyway.. am off to do more research…

Oh by the way.. Happy Merdeka Day Malaysia!  Did you guys catch the Google Doodle yesterday. Awesome right?

Unfortunately, stubborn fat is a problem that many Americans deal with. If this is something you can relate to, you know how difficult it can be to not only lose weight, but also to slim certain areas of your body. Weight gain can creep up on a person before they even realize it has occurred. Although the extra pounds seem to come easily, it’s far more difficult to make them go. Eating a healthy diet and getting plenty of exercise are, of course, important for everyone, but even by following these healthy habits, some individual’s bodies have a hard time getting back to what they once were. If you are in this situation, there are innovative options out there like non-surgical liposuction that can help you get more from your lifestyle and get you the body you want.

How It Works

Traditional liposuction, which requires surgery, is still a popular choice for weight loss. It is effective, but some individuals would prefer to avoid surgery if possible. Fortunately, other liposuction options are now available. One of these techniques literally freezes fat away. It targets fat cells in a non-invasive way and eliminates them. No cutting is needed. Fat cells are targeted exclusively so surrounding tissues won’t be harmed. There are several important reasons this approach has taken off. One is that because it’s a non-invasive technique, there isn’t a risk of scarring. There is also no downtime. Short periodic appointments are scheduled, and after a few months, you’ll notice your fat begin to disappear. The dermatologist working with you will tell you how often your sessions should occur.

Less Risk

Every surgery, no matter how small, carries some level of risk with it. Why not avoid that risk altogether and choose a non-surgical liposuction technique? You can easily eliminate your fat in a safe, effective manner. Without having to worry about things like surgical complications and scarring, you can feel confident that your body will become what you want it to be. Dermatology center specialists will work with you to develop a treatment plan and help you feel great about your body.

You’ve probably tried all sorts of methods to try and remove that unwanted hair. Most women worry most about any hair they have growing on their upper lip and chin, their bikini zone, legs, armpits, and even their stomach and back. Some women are hairier than others; women that suffer from a hormonal imbalance called Poly-cystic Ovarian Syndrome often end up growing extra hair thanks to their condition. And thanks to extra pressure that women in American society face, any extra hair growth is considered unfeminine.

One great option that’s become available in recent years is Assara’s laser hair removal. Laser hair removal is a treatment that actually has the potential to give you permanent results. No other hair removal product can come close to giving that result. But it’s not for everyone; the costs for treatment are pretty steep, so if you’re considering laser hair removal, definitely do your research before you try it. Here is a little information about the most common means for hair removal along with how they measure up to laser hair removal.

Depilatory
Depilatory is just a fancy word for those hair-removing creams like Nair. These creams are not suited for everybody because the chemicals in it are highly irritating. The cream works by dissolving the hair and only is effective until new hair growth starts coming in. If you don’t have a skin reaction to the cream, then using this stuff is going to be your least painful option. Unlike laser hair removal, using Nair will only give you results for a day or two at most. It’s also scary to think about putting those harsh chemicals on your skin every couple of days,

Shaving
Shaving is the most common method women use to get rid of unwanted hair. Shaving is potentially dangerous since you’re using sharp blades to cut the hair. Its results only last a day or two, and then you’ve got stubble that makes your legs feel like a porcupine. Shaving is the least expensive, but the time spent shaving every day can really add up over a few decades.

Waxing
Waxing is a preferred option for women who want longer results with their hair removal. Some women wax themselves, but most go to a salon for a professional to do it. Waxing pulls the whole hair out, from the root, and so the result is smoother skin for longer. It is painful, however, and unlike Assara’s laser hair removal, the results are not at all permanent.

Wow.. I just found about this site called Kabbage. Apparently they offer easy business cash advance loan for small businesses in the States and UK. Kabbage claims that they can deliver funding to small businesses within 7 minutes and the process is so easy. Sign up, submit application and get your funds once approved.  Just looking at the testimonial by those they helped makes me wish that such services exist here in my part of the world.  Oh well.. try them out if they available to you ok!

Pictures hanging on the wall of a home bring it to life. They make it feel personal and cozy. Many homeowners are unsure of how to incorporate pictures into their home d├ęcor, however. The best aspect of using pictures in your collection of wall hangings is that they can match any style of interior design. The picture itself can contain any subject matter. One modern way to capture the right image for a space is by placing digital prints on canvas. Homeowners and designers have discovered the limitless possibilities of this technique. Canvas adds a unique texture and depth to wall hangings that can’t be achieved with typical framed images.

Benefits

The advantages of using canvas over traditional framed pictures are not limited to these features. For individuals looking for a large picture to fill an area, canvas is an ideal option for a few reasons. The first is that canvas weighs significantly less than framed pictures. Additionally, it can display more of the image in the space, because there is no need for a mat or frame. Another benefit deals with cost. Having an image framed can be very pricey. The frame, glass, mat, and labor drive up the price. Canvas, on the other hand, is an economical way to capture an image of any size. And, without glass covering the picture, it eliminates glare and makes the picture feel closer and more realistic.

Versatility

Once an individual decides to use digital prints on canvas, the image and location need to be selected. These wall hangings can be created in a variety of sizes. A large landscape would look great in places like over a fireplace, in a waiting room, or in a long hallway. Or, a small or large collection of canvas prints can be used in any size of space. Pictures of loved ones may be spaced evenly in a straight line in an appropriate space, or one image may be split onto a few canvas prints. Whatever picture is being portrayed, canvas provides an affordable and stylish alternative to framed images. It can add character to any home or business.

Newport Beach boat rentals is the place to go when you want to check out of the world for a while or just to have some fun. There are paddleboards, kayaks, deckboats, cruisers, electric boats, and small sailboats if you are not planning on going too far from shore. If the ocean is where you want to be, then there are runabouts and fishing boats.

Paddleboarding

A paddleboard is kind of like a canoe without the sides, and you stand up on it to paddle instead of sitting in the canoe to paddle. Paddleboards are becoming quite popular as a cross-training tool for athletes of all kinds. Beginners should look for the heavier, wider paddleboards. Experienced paddleboard riders will have a lighter-weight, thinner board. To begin learning how to use a paddleboard, it is recommended that you start out in shallower water in a kneeling position on the board. Once you get stabilized and balanced, you can rise to a standing position. You only use one paddle and can change the sides you are paddling on depending on which direction you want to go. Your knees should be bent a bit and your hips should be what is balancing you, not your head movement. Once you get the hang of I,t you can begin learning different strokes. Renting a paddleboard is the best way to find out if you like it before you spend the money on the equipment.

Which Boat for Your Group

The amount of people in your group and what you want to do will dictate the watercraft you rent. If you are looking for a leisure day on the water, then a cruiser might be the best choice. They have a cover to give you a place to get out of the sun and they are meant to go slow and steady. If you want to fish, then renting a fishing boat is what you are looking for. You will have to have a working knowledge of that type of boat and be able to maneuver it safely in and out of port and through the open water. Newport Beach boat rentals can also give you an opportunity to check out different watercraft while you are deciding which type of boat you want to buy.

Many people visit a massage therapist on a regular basis to help their bodies relax. Both mental and physical stress factors can cause the muscles in your body to tense. Receiving a massage is a great way to combat these effects. Although all types of massage help to relax the body and mind, different techniques, or modalities, offer various benefits. Clients that are primarily looking for relaxation would likely enjoy a Swedish massage, which is a lighter technique that works the upper tissues. However, deep tissue massage is appropriate for clients that have aches and pains or simply want to achieve a deeper state of muscle relaxation. This technique can be useful for individuals with chronic pain or temporary pain that may have been caused by an injury. Click here to learn more about pain relief with deep tissue massage.

Deep Tissue

Unlike other techniques, the focus of deep tissue massage is to reach the deepest layers of your muscles and their connective tissues. A trained massage therapist will talk to you about any problem areas where you might be experiencing discomfort and tailor the session to your needs. Deep tissue is perfect for targeting any knots and muscle adhesions. By loosening up these tissues and breaking up adhesions, pain should lessen or disappear. Additionally, after your muscles have been worked, your flexibility and range of motion will increase. Individuals that experience pain from conditions like osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia can receive much relief from deep tissue massage.

Choose the Right Therapist

Working with the right massage therapist for you will help you achieve better results. A great therapist will be in tune with your needs from start to finish. They will learn about the pain you are experiencing and where that pain might be coming from. During the massage, they will ask for feedback so they know how much pressure your body can tolerate. This will help them to give the right amount of time to specific areas of your body. Your therapist should always be concerned with your level of comfort. Click here to find a licensed massage therapist, and help your body become free from pain.
