Cervical Cancer Basics

Taken from Makna Neoplasia (Newsletter) Issue 3/2009.

Cervical cancer begins with cancerous cells that grow on the surface of the cervix, the passageway that connects a woman's uterus to the vagina. We now know that infection with human papillomavirus, or HPV, is the primary risk factor for cervical cancer, but not all women with HPV infection will develop cancer.

 Common risk factors

It has been published that women who don't get screened are the ones who are at highest risk. The high risk category also includes women who have weak immune systems (due to HIV infection, for example) and those who smoke.

Cervical Cancer Symptoms: What to look for ?

Women should tell their doctors or gynecologists if they see the following symptoms of cervical cancer:

- Unusual bleeding (such as spotting between periods, bleeding after menopause, bleeding after sexual intercourse, or bleeding after a vaginal exam or douching. You should also look for unusual vaginal discharge and signs of pain in the pelvic region.

KIA Forte - Looks Good

The reason I think this car is cool is because it supports the idea of spend less for more.

Check out reviews by

The cheapest model is 1.6 L costing RM 75,800.00 while the 2.0 L model costs only RM 93,800.00. Check out details here.

But honestly, I don't really fancy the name Forte. While I think the brand of NAZA sound cooler than KIA.

It is categorized as small-car and rivals with Honda Civic, Toyota Altis, Mazda 3 and etc.

And it doesn't seem to offer fully manual transmission,except that it offers semi manual transmission.

Check out more information here.

Nevertheless, even if I want to buy it, it will still be like at least 9 months away. By that time, perhaps there will be another cooler automobile out in the market.

So, this is definitely not my priority.

KL To Puchong - Rapid KL Bus Number 69

I sent my car for service today and decided to take bus to office (Bandar Puteri Puchong). This is for two reasons:
  1. Take a break, do some photography
  2. If I take a taxi from Kelana Jaya LRT station to Bandar Puteri Puchong, it will cost me RM 20.00 per trip.
I have to take a bus from Klang bus stand near Pasar seni.

The bus to take is Rapid KL No.69

Dayabumi complex and the post office HQ. The best part of the post office is the car park, which if you dare, you can actually enter the car park and drive all the way and exit to somewhere in Jalan Parlimen. It is fun. But honestly, I haven't tried it as driver. Will do that one day if it is still available.

This is Klang Bus Stand.

This is how Rapid KL Buses look like.

The bus fare per trip is RM 3.00

It will travel to Brickfields, then into federal highway (briefly), then into Old Klang Road, jalan puchong and that is it.

Actually if you are traveling with LRT, you can take the bus from Brickfields (KL Sentral stop).

Open Response to 'It's Terribly Lonely To Be Single'

Refer to 'It's Terrible Lonely To Be Single'.

I don't believe in the idea of 'first-rated woman'.

This world and especially our society, needs to creatively find ways to live quality lifestyles, by all means of solving the problems with low incomes, traffic jams and etc.

Technology can help.

Believing... Is Probably The Only Thing that Matters

Believe, is not something which you can describe easily.

If you believe in ideals, it doesn't mean that you are striving for perfection, which most people understand that it doesn't exist in this world.

But yet, if you don't believe, you are probably just breathing the air, without living the moment.

You got to believe.

Believing is probably the only thing that matters, without, you can't make a dent.

Mammograms May Actually Boost the Risk of Breast Cancer in Some High-risk Women

Taken from Makna Neoplasia (newsletter) issue 3/2009.

Dutch researchers analysed six previously published studies, four examining the effect of low-dose radition exposure from mammography among women with the genetic mutation boosting breast cancer risk and tow looking at the effect of radition from screening in women with a family history of breast cancer.

"Women who were exposed before the age of 20 had a 2.5 times increased risk of breast cancer," said Martine Jansen-van der Weide, an epidemiologist and researcher at the University Medical Center Groningen, in the Netherlands. So did women with five or more exposures.

We cannot say for sure for or against mammograms but while many medical experts still recommend regular mammograms, which take an x-ray like photograph of the breast, to detect small tumours, opposition to the practice is growing.

You have options Tumours that grow in the breast are fed by blood vessels generated by the cancer, this means that those blood vessels are not controlled by the automatic nervous system like the rest of the blood vessels in the breast. A non-invasive and no-squishing method for detecting masses in the breast is available. Ask your doctor about a new method called thermography, that uses thermal imaging to detect "hot spots" in the breast.

Check out the details.

A Will To Survive: Ovarian Cancer

This is taken from Makna Neoplasia (newsletter) issue 3/2009.

Puan Hamidah Binti Abu Bakar, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at the age of 51. The early symptoms she felt were dismissed as normal signs of aging woman. Her distended stomach, lack of breath and appetite eventually made her uncomfortable that she sought a doctor's opinion. In Feb 2006, a blood test and a CT scan proved positive that Puan Hamidah is affected with ovarian cancer and shockingly, it had progressed to Stage 4. Nevertheless, Puan Hamidah had no choice but to face facts and began her treatment as a cancer patient.

Check out the full featured story.

Kopitiam at around 7:30am (Bandar Puteri Puchong)

This is the kopitiam at around 7:30am. There was virtually no one there. But I was there.

It has a economical vegetarian stall. As for non-vegetarian, the dried pan-mee is good, and I also think the fish head meehoon is good as well. It used to have a Thai style stall which I think the fried rice was good, but has shifted to elsewhere.

It is just opposite PappaRich Bandar Puteri Puchong. If you don't know where is Bandar Puteri Puchong, it is where Citibank is.

You can find me here (around this area) most of the time whenever I am around the office.

I went there with my friend, checking out the temples.
