Almost everyone owns a mobile phone these days. A friend proudly proclaimed a few years back that he did not own a mobile phone.. I'm pretty sure that he has now succumbed! For some people, even forgetting to bring their mobile phone when they go out is a traumatizing event! Happened to me a few times. I kept thinking, 'Oh no! There must be a few missed calls and dozens of text messages on the phone' I got back, checked my phone and guess what.. No missed calls, nada text messages! Hah... we've just gotten so used to having the thing with us that we can't even function without it.
And why not? The mobile phone today is not just used to Call a friend. The technology now is great. It's brilliant. It's awesome. Smart phones have internet capability, voice and video recording, camera, music and video player, Bluetooth, you name it! All this also means that most of us are spending a profound amount on our mobile phone bills each month. Telco companies come up with so many different plans that it's sometimes too complicated and complex to consider and compare which is the best.

Bestnya kamu!!! (Jeles..jeless!!) Take the good of what you can from my meandering above. And above all, enjoy and embrace your 3 or 4 year experience in uni whilst you can.

How green are you? Not envy green, not alien green.. care for the environment green. It's all the rage these days. It's not easy though - green living. When I think about living green, I think about renewable energy resources like solar power and wind turbines. Energy efficient appliances, that sort of thing. All of which may sound very complicated and costly. Well, there are easier things that we all can do - recycling, car pooling, turning off electrical switches when appliances are not in use, reusable bags, that sort of thing.
Here are 7 small steps that we can also do/think of in our strive to living green. Most of them are more applicable to women though.
2. Cloth Diapering
4. Using cloth sanitary pads
5. Using cloth wipes instead of tissues
6. Using reusable shopping bags (make sure you have one or two or more stashed in your handbag or car all the time)
7. Choosing organic or safer products
8. Making your own enzymes or compost
9. Reusing old stuffs, making them into something new (like sewing your old clothes into bags, etc..)
Do you have any others you care to share?
