You are what you eat.

" Hunger is the best sauce in the world "
~ Cervantes ~

FOOD is any substance consumed to provide nutritional support for the body. It is usually of plant or animal origin, and contains essential nutrients, such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, or minerals. The substance is ingested by an organism and assimilated by the organism's cells in an effort to produce energy, maintain life, or stimulate growth.

Between the extremes of optimal health and death from starvation or malnutrition, there is an array of disease states that can caused or alleviated by changes in diet. Deficiencies, excesses, and imbalances in diet can produce negative impacts on health, which may lead to various health problems such as scurvy, obesity or osteoporosis, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases as well as psychological and behavioral problems.

Malaysia Dietary Guidelines has been recently revised ( in 2010 ), to combat the mounting problem of obesity in Malaysia. It has two aims - get people to eat healthier and get them to practice an active lifestyle. Basically, we need to make better food choices in our daily meals.

Learning Is Fun!

School Should Be Fun . . .

Emotion can have a powerful impact on memory. If you have fun in class when your teacher tried to explain, you'll remember the lesson. In the other hand, it is also very likely that you will not remember anything if you learn with a teacher you really don't like. In the long run, your emotional memory will prefer to skip all information related to this teacher and the bad memories you had in class. If you take care of your emotional memory, your emotional memory will be happy. That will make your learning fast, easy, efficient and fun.

" Emotional Intelligence " is the ability to identify, assess, and control the emotions of oneself, of others, and of groups. For years now, " Intelligence " has been wrongly defined as the ability to solve problems logically. But more and more research indicates that
" Emotional Intelligence " is of much greater importance in learning.

In fact, Daniel Goleman, in his top-selling book called Emotional Intelligence, says that " at best, IQ contributed about 20% to the factors that determine life success, which leaves 80% to other forces ; forces grouped as Emotional Intelligence "

Researchers Gordon Dryden and Dr. Jeannette Vos, in the world's biggest-selling non- fiction book for 1999, The Learning Revolution, expand on this total concept. Vos, who achieved her doctorate in education after a seven-year research program into the world's best learning methods, describes emotion as " the key to unlock the door to learning "

The emotional center of the human brain is located in the limbic system - sometimes called " the mammalian brain " because it is similar to the major part of the brain in other mammals. Dryden and Vos say the emotional center of the brain is closely linked with our long-term memory storage systems. That's why we all remember easiest any information with a high emotional content.

" Stay away from depression, stress and worry. . . SMILE & HAVE FUN "

Give Your All . . . . .

" Never give up on what you really want to do. The person with big dreams is more powerful than one with all the facts "
~ Albert Einstein ~

Confidence is generally described as a state of being certain either that a hypothesis or prediction is correct or that a chosen course of action is the best or most effective. Self-confidence is having confidence in oneself.
~ Full trust ; belief in the powers, trustworthiness, or reliability of a person or thing.
~ Belief in oneself and one's powers or abilities ; self-confidence ; self-reliance ; assurance.

" Confidence "

You don't always have to be in the lead . . .
If you have the heart to come from behind.
Don't give up hope, don't doubt yourself,
And a new strength is what you'll find.

The spirit of competition, the desire to succeed
will always be important for life.
So give your all, everything you've got,
no matter the occasion, through pain and strife.

So step up to the plate, enter the race,
never be afraid to take your turn.
Because the winners are people who just never quit,
and this is a life lesson we all will learn.
