HSE alert for car riders

Now this is very interesting! My car's manual says to roll down the windows to let out all the hot air before turning on the A/C. WHY?

No wonder more folks are dying from cancer than ever before. We wonder where this stuff comes from but here is an example that explains a lot of the cancer causing incidents.

Many people are in their cars the first thing in the morning; and the last thing at night, 7 days a week.

As I read this, it makes me feel guilty and ill. Please pass this on to as many people as possible. Guess it’s not too late to make some changes.

Car A/C (Air Conditioning) MUST READ!

Please do NOT turn on A/C as soon as you enter the car.

Open the windows after you enter your car, and then turn ON the AC after a couple of minutes.

Here's why: According to research, the car's dashboard, seats, a/c ducts in fact ALL of the plastic objects in your vehicle, emit Benzene, a Cancer causing toxin; A BIG CARCINOGEN. Take the time to observe the smell of heated plastic in your car, when you open it, and BEFORE you start it up.

In addition to causing cancer, Benzene poisons your bones, causes anemia and reduces white blood cells. Prolonged exposure will cause Leukemia and increases the risk of some cancers. It can also cause miscarriages in pregnant females.

Acceptable Benzene level indoors is: 50mg per sq.ft.

A car parked indoors, with windows closed, will contain 400‐800 mg of Benzene.

If parked outdoors, under the sun, at a temperature above 60 degrees F, the Benzene level goes up to 2000‐4000 mg, 40 times the acceptable level.

People, who get into the car, keeping the windows closed, will inevitably inhale, in quick succession, excessive amounts of the BENZENE toxin.

Benzene is a toxin that affects your kidneys and liver. What's worse, it is extremely difficult for your body to expel this toxic stuff from your body.

So friends, please open the windows and door of your car ‐ give it some time for the interior to air out (dispel the deadly stuff) ‐ before you enter the vehicle.

Thought: 'When someone shares something of value with you and you benefit from it, you have a moral obligation to share it with others.'

Donation to the unfortunate newborns

On 22nd April 2012, The Nanyang Press (Chinese newspaper) published a charity drive at the back page of the Selangor news section.

Two unfortunate newborns are found to have complicated heart diseases and urgently need fund for immediate surgery operations. As a father of two, I can understand the emotional feelings of the victims family. What I can do is making a donation and spread this news via my blogs.

Latest Phone Scam

There are more and more scams happening everyday in Malaysia. They are getting smarter in plotting the scam story line that sounds so real where anyone of us may fall into these traps. Below is one of the example from anonymous for sharing. Read on and beware!

  1. I received a call from a Malay lady, number shown on my mobile phone: +25013169.
  2. This lady spoke in Malay, informed that she is from POS Malaysia.
  3. She read out my name and IC number, then informed that there were 2 high court letters addressed to me but could not be delivered.
  4. She will fax the letters to a police station, and will request personnel from the police station to contact me later.
  5. She gave a reference no. for the letter: 49951, and asked me to check with the police personnel who will call later, to ensure that they are the correct person acting on the correct letters.
  6. 10 minutes later I received a call from one lady, identified herself as Madam Cheah, spoke in Malay, saying from Bukit Aman Police HQ.
  7. Number shown on my mobile phone: +60322662222.
  8. I know this is a scam, so I purposely spoke rudely to her (asked her to speak louder etc.) She got angry, said that if I don't believe her, to call back the number to verify, then hung up.
  9. I did a search through internet, confirmed that the number +60322662222 is indeed from Bukit Aman HQ.
  10. Instead of using my mobile phone to call back, I used Skype to call the number. A Malay lady picked up the call and I checked with her whether this is Bukit Aman, she replied yes, then I hung up. 
  11. Quickly I ran through a few postings in the internet on such scams.
  12. In between, they called again and left "missed" calls.
  13. From postings in the internet, apparently if you called them back using the mobile phone, it will be connected directly to them (the syndicate).
  14. But if you call using land line (Telekom), you will be connected to the REAL Bukit Aman.
  15. So I used the landline and called the number, a male police officer answered the phone.
  16. I told him my story, he confirmed that this is a scam, and said that many victims have already called them today and they are working with the multimedia commission investigating this.
  17. The police officer confirmed that the syndicate is using a phone phishing technique, to make the number appearing as from Bukit Aman when they called.
  18. If you called back using your mobile phone, probably there are someone from the mobile phone company working behind with them, will direct your call to the syndicate.
Sharing the above encounter with you so that you will not fall victim to this latest scam.
