Free Gift Offer....do you get what you should?

I felt cheated!!! Oh Yes, I do. I was given this plastic microwave container when I went to collect what I was supposed to be given.
Read what is printed on this milk carton? Free! 1 milk mug..... YES, a milk mug free. That was what got me attracted. It wasn't the milk. I already have two cartons of Dutch Lady Milk in my trolley. Then I caught this cute mug stuck to a milk carton (Marigold). The sales girl was there and she attended to me. I asked about the free gift - the mug. She said, "Oh, you can collect it from the customer service." That's about all she said and did.
I paid for all the groceries and stuff I bought. Happily trod over to the customer service counter and there.....Stock of mugs finished! Finished quite some hours ago. Goodness gracious and the sales girl knew that I bought these two cartons all because of a mug. The least she could have done was let me and the other consumer (there was another man with his little girl) know about the 'finished' gift. Right? NO....she didn't say a word. I now have a plastic container. Something I really can do without. This is just a word of caution. Check first before any purchases are made. This doesn't cost me a lot of money. It is the principle that I'm getting at. Dishonesty......yeah, don't I feel cheated? Aaarghhhh.....Come on Marigold. Have enough stock!:o(

If you've had a bad day with your......whatever you call the man in your life, hope you smile like I did when I read this. Cheers :o) [Many credits to the person who composed/wrote this.]

Fake Wasabi....what next?

GMO fruits, non-organic fruits and food. Now we have fake wasabi. Ever wondered what next eh? I like Japanese food and I always need to have wasabi with my food. Goodness gracious, why can't restaurants use natural stuff? Should we put the blame on the people who invented this fake stuff or the people who wants to buy them? Geez......!
Fake Wasabi-90% composed of chemicals which may endanger your health. Reporting from Research Center/Taipei, Taiwan The wasabi we find these days are found to contain many unknown ingredients. Due to the low supply and high cost of the real wasabi, even wasabi found in 5-star hotels are found to be questionable. The fake wasabi contains high levels of metals. Though they are within safe levels of consumption, doctors have advised against consuming too much of them. As we were passing through a fish market, we came upon a very strong scent. We found a lady preparing the wasabi mixture for the raw fish. She told us that she uses "special wasabi powder" which costs only $50/bag and they can make up to several hundred bags of wasabi paste. We even found many restaurants using this special wasabi powder to make the wasabi paste. Why is the scent so strong and what does it really contain? We continued our investigations. The conclusion we came to was the fact that there were special ingredients placed in these "special wasabi powder" even though the label simply indicates "wasabi and permitted flavoring and coloring." Experts indicate that the type of wasabi found in Taiwancannot be freeze-dried and made into powder, so it's very likely that these "special wasabi powder" have been made artificially. A chinese chemist Wu Jia Cheng says "the label only says what its basic ingredients are but will not say what it artificially contains." Our investigative reporters took the "special wasabi powder" to the lab for testings. Lab results show the powder contains copper, lead and chromium. So how are we going to differentiate the real from the fake wasabi? A little iodine tincture will do the trick. We found a biochemist who says that "After mixing the wasabi powder to make the paste, simply place a drop of iodine tincture onto the paste and wait 1-2 mins. If you see the brown iodine tincture changing its color into a dark blue color, it indicates the presence of starch within the paste. And within this mixture is the addition of the ingredient "propenyl mustard oil" to make the fake wasabi." Fake wasabi gives a bright green appearance and a very strong pungent smell that will dissipate within 1/2 hr. Real wasabi is of a much lighter green. A toxicologist warned that long term consumption of this fake wasabi can lead to liver and kidney damages. We should avoid at all cost to protect our health. :o(

Sai Baba's cheap tricks exposed....!

Do you know or have you read anything about Sai Baba? I have read a lot about him but I am not one of his worshippers. I do not have anything against him either. I have watched this video and it is totally shocking and unbelievable that such acts are done.
I am unable to put the video here but just the link (it could be the terms and conditions). Maybe, I messed up a little here and there, who knows? Retro as I am. Click the link to watch and learn the truth if you have not heard of it all.

Do you know this drink.....Red Bull?

Have you read about this? I was sent this piece of information and didn't give it much thought until hubby mentioned about a friend who consumed a can. His friend mentioned that he bought a can as he was feeling knackered. A while after drinking he felt his heart beating very fast and he experienced some giddiness. Now, is this coincidental or...... Is there anyone who has more information to this drink besides what is in this piece of information?
France & Denmark have banned it from the country...
This drink is SOLD in all the supermarkets IN OUR country and our children ARE CONSUMING IT ON A TRIAL BASIS, IT can be mortal.RED BULL was created to stimulate the brains in people who are subjected to great physical force and in stress coma and never to be consumed like an innocent drink or soda pop.
RED BULL IS the energizer DRINK that is commercialized world-wide with its slogan:'It increases endurance; awakens the concentration capacity and the speed of reaction, offers more energy and improves the mood. All this can be found in a can of RED BULL , the power drink of the millennium.'RED BULL has managed to arrive at almost 100 countries worldwide. The RED BULL logo is targeted at young people and sportsmen, two attractive segments that have been captivated by the stimulus that the drink provides.It was created by Dietrich Mateschitz, an industrialist of Austrian origin who discovered the drink by chance. It happened during a business trip to Hong Kong , when he was working at a factory that manufactured toothbrushes.The liquid, based on a formula that contained caffeine and taurine, caused a rage in that country. Imagine the grand success of this drink in Europe where the product still did not exist, besides it was a superb opportunity to become an entrepreneur.BUT THE TRUTH ABOUT THIS DRINK IS ANOTHER THING: FRANCE and DENMARK have just prohibited it as a cocktail of death, due to its vitamin components mixed with GLUCURONOLACTONE', a highly dangerous chemical, which was developed by the United States Department of Defense during the sixties to stimulate the moral of the troops based in VIETNAM, which acted like a hallucinogenic drug that calmed the stress of the war.But their effects in the organism were so devastating, that it was discontinued, because of the high index of cases of migraines, cerebral tumors and diseases of the liver that was evident in the soldiers who consumed it.And in spite of it, in the can of RED BULL you can still find as one of its components: GLUCURONOLACTONE, categorized medically as a stimulant. But what it does not say on the can of ,RED BULL are the consequences of its consumption, and that has forced us to place a series of WARNINGS:1. It is dangerous to take it if you do not engage in physical exercise afterwards, since its energizing function accelerates the heart rate and can cause a sudden attack.2. You run the risk of undergoing a cerebral hemorrhage, because RED BULL contains components that dilute the blood so that the heart utilizes less energy to pump the blood, and thus be able to deliver physical force with less effort being exerted.3. It is prohibited to mix RED BULL with alcohol, because the mixture turns the drink into a " Deadly Bomb " that attacks the liver directly, causing the affected area never to regenerate anymore. 4. One of the main components of RED BULL is the B12 vitamin, used in medicine to recover patients who are in a coma; from here the hypertension and the state of excitement which is experienced after taking it, as if you were in a drunken state.5. The regular consumption of RED BULL triggers off symptoms in the form of a series of irreversible nervous and neuronal diseases.CONCLUSION: It is a drink that should be prohibited in the entire world as when it is mixed with alcohol it creates a TIME BOMB for the human body, mainly between innocent adolescents and adults with little experience.[**I have nothing against this company/manufacturer. Post is here to find out more about the drink and IF what is mentioned is true.]:o)

Air Conditioning in the car....you should know

Do you drive a car? I do and besides washing, filling up the car with petrol, check the air pressure of the car and some other minor stuff..... I know nothing more. Here is a piece of information and do read. Heed if you think you should. If you don't, just read but you needn't have to click 'save in the brain'.
**Please open the windows after you enter your car and do not turn ON the air-conditioning immediately. According to a research done, the car dashboard, sofa, air freshener emits Benzene, a Cancer causing toxin (carcinogen- take note of the heated plastic smell in your car). In addition to causing cancer, it poisons your bones, causes anemia, and reduces white blood cells. Prolonged exposure will cause Leukemia, increasing the risk of cancer may also cause miscarriage. Acceptable Benzene level indoors is 50 mg per sq. ft. A car parked indoors with the 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... & the people inside the car will inevitably inhale an excess amount of the toxins.

It is recommended that you open the windows and door to give time for the interior to air out before you enter. Benzene is a toxin that affects your kidney and liver, and is very difficult for your body to expel this toxic stuff.
"When someone shares something of value with you and you benefit from it, you have a moral obligation to share it with others"** I feel very guilty not sharing this piece of information and this is the reason I'm posting it here. :o)

Read the numbers on your fruits....

I received this piece of information so I decided to go to the super mart and check it out. I found this apple with a sticker. According to the information I received, this isn't genetically modified but it isn't safe to consume either. I couldn't find any with stickers that starts with the digit 9.
Conventional Fruit Labels Four digits starting with 4
Organic Fruit Labels Five digits and starts with number 9
Genetically Modified Fruits Start with the digit 8

So next time you go shopping, remember these critical numbers and know how to avoid purchasing inorganic and GMO fruits. Shop Safe :) This is good to know because stores aren't obligated to tell you if a fruit has been genetically modified­.) So if you come across an apple in the store and its label is 4922, it's a conventional apple grown with herbicides and harmful fertilizers. If it has a sticker 99222, it's organic and safe to eat. If it says 89222, then do not buy!!!! It has been genetically modified (GMO).
Now, this is what puzzles me, I found this too. A bag of apples with stickers but....no numbers. There are even fruits without any stickers on. Have you noticed? What do we do then? Eat and be poisoned or do not eat any fruits!? :o(
