We got our daily news paper magazine today and one page featuring PUMA shoes and it has a cheap deal. My mind is acting like going out and go to store and check for PUMA. But the weather is acting too bad… raining since last night. So, I decided to check online for womens PUMA 2010 edition. I found out so lovely styles and looks.

I told myself, I must buy a pair of this PUMA before the school starts.  PUMA almost looks like Nike. This will be in between PUMA and NIKE… buying mode.

Do you know what should be the normal pulse rate? I remember before during my last Physical Exam. My pulse rate runs too fast. The doctor suspected that I might have heart problem , so I was instructed to have some other test. But then the result was all fine. Yet yes my pulse rate is still abnormal… It is faster than normal. The next thing : the doctor told me to try counting my pulse rate when I am home. I also told her that I am afraid of doctors hahaha… my heart beats too fast when seeing nurse or doctor… whoaaaaaa! So, she told me to try it at home.

Then, yes my pulse rate when super relax is in normal range. Checking your pulse rate may differs in different situation. Check out the normal counting here.

. Between 60 to 80 per minute – is the normal pulse rate for humans, while restling.
.60 per minute = for well-comditioned athletes.
.40 beats per minute = while we are sleeping
.150 to 200 beats per minute = for those who are exercising

My rate folks goes to almost 100 hahaha… but I am really tensed.

How to Take Pulse Rate?

Measuring your own pulse is not at all a difficult task. As we mentioned earlier, it’s easy to feel the pulse at a few places, such as the wrist and the neck of the body. You just have to place the tip of your index, middle or ring finger on one of these spots, and press lightly until you feel the blood pulsating beneath the finger. If you have trouble finding the pulse, you may have to move the fingertip around the area till you locate it. Once you find it, count the beats for 15 seconds, and multiply the count by 4. This will determine your pulse rate for a minute. For instance, if you get 18 beats in 15 seconds, multiply 18 by 4 (18 x 4 = 72). This means your heart rate is 72 beats per minute.

A pulse rate exceeding 95 beats per minute, when the individual is at rest, is considered as abnormal. A high pulse rate is an indication of some abnormality in our body. Faster heart rate can occur due to several reasons, including fever and anxiety.

How about you guys have you tried to check yours?

Since I so pissed with some scratches on my skin, I really tried another way of strategy that I feel more a bit comfortable. In 3 consecutive days now, I tried putting it a band aid. Hope this will really works. I also searched on how this bandage can help. Reading online is my help doctor.

You know at first day I tried putting some cream or ointment inside but then I found out I am wrong. You must not put any ointment into it if you prefer putting up band aid on the affected area.

Here what I found that buzz my attention!
Leaving a wound uncovered helps it stay dry and helps it heal. If the wound isn’t in an area that will get dirty or be rubbed by clothing, you don’t have to cover it.

If it’s in an area that will get dirty (such as your hand) or be irritated by clothing (such as your knee), cover it with an adhesive strip (one brand: Band-Aid) or with sterile gauze and adhesive tape. Change the bandage each day to keep the wound clean and dry.

Certain wounds, such as scrapes that cover a large area of the body, should be kept moist and clean to help reduce scarring and speed healing. Bandages used for this purpose are called occlusive or semiocclusive bandages. You can buy them in drug stores without a prescription. Your family doctor will tell you if he or she thinks this type of bandage is best for you.

Hope this helps for you folks too!

Here we go! Today, I got a mail from my Norsk School about my schedule after summer. Guess what! I will be going to go to school everyday…lol! Whatta schedule. But this is really good because going to school everday is much worth than only 2 days a week and only 3 hours per session.

August 19, will be class opening again. Sad that my former teacher will not be my teacher this August. I love the way she teach and she is also a bit jolly not boring! By August I will be having two teachers, my class will start too early also… 8.30 in the monring til 11.45 Monday to Friday , still 3 hours per session. Good that it is not whole day class.

I am looking forward for more and more learning after summer. Anyway, blogging must go on hahaha…

Have you tried going up to the mountain and have camping? Last month me and hubby walked up in the forest to have our daily exercise and we encountered this camping house up there. For me it is so cool and nice to relax and stayed over night! Hope me and family can do it too! I took a picture of the tent looks they made there! Very unique!

Here are also your camping guide tips for those who wanted to try!
1. Try and set up camp in daylight — you’ll avoid unpleasant surprises like ants’ nests.
2. Pick a spot protected from the wind by using a line of trees, scrub or the lee of a hill as a windbreak.
3. Level, firm ground is important but don’t select the lowest ground because water will pool there when it rains. Avoid dried mud — these are the first places to get boggy when it rains.
4. Position your tent so you sleep with your head higher than your feet. (Don’t scoff — you’d be surprised how many people make this mistake!)
5. Don’t camp under trees with large boughs, especially gums. Often called ‘widow makers’, they tend to snap in strong winds and lightning strikes.
6. Set up a sun shelter by rigging a tarp off the side of your tent. This is also a good rain shelter, provides extra cooking space and a place to leave gear.
7. In rain, use a tarp as a second fly. You can also use a tarp underneath your tent as an extra moisture barrier. In heavy rain, dig a small trench on the high side of your tent to divert run-off.
8. If camping on a beach, avoid unprotected headlands or sand dunes. Find a sheltered spot out of the wind behind shrubs and trees or in a dune.
9. Pay attention to warning signs about wildlife such as crocodiles or poisonous marine life.
10. In mountains, don’t camp on ridges or saddles between peaks — they can be exposed and dangerous. Use protected sites such as rocky platforms, ledges and river terraces.
11. In deserts, the best campsites are on the edge of dry clay pans or in dunes. Don’t camp in dry creeks or river beds. A distant storm may send a flood of water when you least expect it.
