Effort to stop People smoke at Toilet 停止人们在厕所抽烟的方法

Really hate those people smoke at toilet. Making me can't breath normally with the 'fresh air' inside there.
真的很讨厌看到,闻到,感觉到有人在厕所抽烟! 恨不得敲门进去'修理'他们~

Have been thinking ways to stop this.

Eventually... Found an idea.

Notice something different?

Can see now?

Ya, is this signage! Printed without colour. ^^
哈哈~ 就是这小小的禁止牌!

Hope it may help to prevant people from smoking there.

Any comments? or better suggestion?

With Love 因为爱,

Malaysian Marrow Donor Registry (MMDR) 大马骨髓捐献注册

昨天在面子书被友人宗良通知有关一位女士急需要人捐献骨髓. 讯息如下:

[关丹一位三个孩子的母亲-黄慧敏 32岁 ,不幸患上血癌,急需移植适合的骨髓。请联络:0169409871 (慧娜,慧敏妹妹) ,0169331226(文林)。有意捐献者可到Institute Medical Rearch (IMR), Jalan Pahang. 请大家帮忙把这信息传达出去 ]

在联络了慧娜后,证实这是真人真事. 但由于不太了解捐献骨髓的方式,平常都听说别人很可怕的,不知如何能帮到她.


原来除了所谓可怕的手术以取出适当的骨髓之外 (Bone Marrow Aspiration),现今也发明了另一种较为让人放心的方式,称之为Aferesis. 这在2006推行的先进科技(过程像抽血般)其实是抽出健康捐献者的stem cell以培植成为骨髓再置入病人体内.

了解过后,我也加入骨髓捐献注册名单,注册过程非常简单,只需约15分钟(官员解释+填表格+抽10 ml血).





Each year 100++ of Malaysian suffer from diseases treatable with bone marrow transplantation. Various types of leukaemia, aplastic anaemia, Thalassemia, Lymphoma can be treated with bone marrow transplantation. Unfortunately many patients die before they can find a compatible donor.

What is bone marrow?
Bone marrow is the tissue found in the cavaties of the bones. Bone marrow produces all of our blood cells.

What is bone marrow transplantation?
A bone marrow transplant is the replacement of the patient's diseased bone marrow with the marrow of healthy, matched donor. Within few weeks, the transplanted marrow will begin to produce normal blood ells in the patient.

How is a marrow matched?
A special test in used to identify proteins called HLA (Human Laukocyte Antigen) found on the surface of the patient's white blood cells. A bone marrow match occur when the 6 HLA antigens found on the patient's white blood cells match the 6 HLA antigens found on the potential donor's white blood cells.
