Excerpted from Wikipedia.com

A leap year (also known as an intercalary year or a bissextile year) is a year containing one additional day (or, in the case of lunisolar calendars, a month) added to keep the calendar year synchronized with the astronomical or seasonal year. Because seasons and astronomical events do not repeat in a whole number of days, calendars that have the same number of days in each year drift over time with respect to the event that the year is supposed to track. By inserting (also called intercalating) an additional day or month into the year, the drift can be corrected. A year that is not a leap year is called a common year.

February 29 is a date that usually occurs every four years, and is called leap day. This day is added to the calendar in leap years as a corrective measure, because the Earth does not orbit around the sun in precisely 365 days.

How Eating Habits Link to Cardiovascular Diseases

“You are what you eat.”

As the above saying goes, this is almost always true.

In fact, in making use of a certain unhealthy eating habits, would surely make one suffer from any diseases such as those cardiovascular disease. This simply means that when a person is getting into highly fat-contained foods, there is likely to elevate cholesterol levels in the blood where in severe cases, it can even accumulate and form cholesterol plaques in the blood vessels causing blockage of blood supply, specifically to the heart since the caliber of the blood vessels supplying blood in the heart is getting smaller as it approaches the heart. These blood vessels are the most prone to blockage that is caused by cholesterol plaque formation.

Another thing is when you consume a large amount of sweet or sugary treats, that are undeniably mouth-watering, there is likelihood of suffering from diabetes, a decade or so after. Once diagnosed of being diabetic but no eating habit and lifestyle changes done, tendency is that the heart is one of the many internal organs that will be affected leading to a certain Cardiovascular Disease secondary to diabetes or high sugar level.

With all these, as I have mentioned above, “you are what you eat”, so eat healthy as to be healthy as well.

Chinese New Year 2016

I’m no Chinese but I do celebrate Chinese New Year as I also believe in some but not all Chinese beliefs.

Chinese New Year 2016

I cannot mention one by one and which is which Chinese beliefs from the Filipino, Spanish and so on. But what I used to do every Chinese New Year is to have in our table a round serving of the sticky rice cake. This, I do believe that with this one, serves as a sample how the family be closely tied with each other.

Happy Chinese New Year everyone!
