After The RAIN*

...It was such an intense day for both,
Teenee(my darling Pug) and I !!!
Rushed to the Vet first thing in the morning...
after running a few tests, it was diagnosed as
a bad case of Pyometra or uterine/womb infections.
[click here to learn more, Glad it was detected early!]
The Vet urged for an emergency operation...
Oooh... not only Teenee needed the hug,
I really needed one too!! (sob-sob*)
sorry for the blurry photo of her belly
I was still so nervous & trembling...errr-errr
BUT most importantly, everything went well!

" ~Good Morning Monday* "
....Ooohhh...these photographs by Francesca Bondy are delectable and so drool-worthy! As we all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but sometimes I have to force myself to have my breakfast… I don’t really have any appetite in the morning somehow... Normally I prefer simple warm breakfast~ a quick omelet; 2 egg whites + 1 yolk & a piece of wheat toast or a simple traditional oat meal with fresh blue berries… How about you? Do you guys love your breakfast meals? ~Tell me what you LUV*{I'm very nosy like that!)

"...grrr or errr ??? "
...Found this recent study quite fascinating... It suggests that people from different cultures read facial expressions differently. The East Asian participants focused mostly on the eyes, but those from the West scanned the whole face. Based on the research the team from Glasgow University, East Asian observers found it more difficult to distinguish some facial expressions. In the study, East Asians were more likely than Westerners to read the expression for "fear" as "surprise", and "disgust" as "anger". The researchers say the confusion arises because people from different cultural groups observe different parts of the face when interpreting expression.

East Asian participants tended to focus on the eyes of the other person, while Western subjects took in the whole face, including the eyes and the mouth. The team showed 13 Western Caucasians and 13 East Asians a set of standardized images depicting the seven main facial expressions: happy, sad, neutral, angry, disgusted, fearful and surprised. They used eye movement trackers to monitor where the participants were looking when interpreting the expressions. A computer program given the same information from the eyes as the East Asian observers was similarly unable to distinguish between the emotions of disgust and anger, and fear and surprise..

East West differences in Emoticons









(;_;) or (T_T)




The report also states that the Eastern participants used a culturally specific decoding strategy that was inadequate to reliably distinguish the universal facial expressions of fear and disgust. It concluded that information from the eyes is often ambiguous and confusing in these expressions, with consequences for cross-cultural communication and globalization... The researchers also point out that this difference in perception is reflected in the differences between Eastern and Western emoticons - the typographical characters used to convey emotions in e-mails. The Eastern emoticons are not only the right way up but focus on the eyes, whilst in the West the mouth is important. ~Fascinating! No wonder Miss Tyra Banks always asks her models to 'smile' with their eyes! Global expression...errr?! My-my-my...we certainly learn NEW* things everyday! ~XOXO*

Feel Good* Chair

I was instantly charmed by this STYLISH* design...
but after learning more about the story
behind it, I was more than charmed...
~I was truly INSPIRED*!

.... The chair certainly became more exciting and meaningful when some of the young patients helped to design it... loving the mix of children's artwork with the formal chair. Such a wonderful way to raise money for the children's charity~ an important Palliative Care Program. The Palliative Care team helps the children with symptom and pain relief, and also provides much needed psychological and spiritual support for the children, their siblings, and parents during these difficult times. The team consists of physicians, nurses, social workers, child life specialists, psychologists, and spiritual leaders...which unfortunately is not adequately funded by insurance companies. The chair is one of the items that will be auctioned off. Click HERE to read more about this inspiring story. ~BIG Cheers to all the wonderful creative people involved in this charity project! ~XOXO*
