my world inside my house together along with my comrades..

why i said comrades??
because we always toward the same path..
same entertainment..
same food..
same will..
everything just the same..

i have 2 younger brother n 5 younger sister..
which means..
i'm the first in my siblings..

i doesn't have the intention to create a new post..
the internet doesn't functioning well..
and the signal is very low...
i'm wondering..
when will i get good broadband connection..hee..~..
n then..
i might online all the time..
will it become true??
what a ridiculous thing i ever wondering..

continue with description of my family..
im the first.
just like what i'd mentioned just now..
currently study in
sultan mizan teacher's training institute
in kota putra, besut, terengganu..
taking science as my major course..
n malay language 1 with english 1 as my minor...
but i would prefer english as my major course..
but it just day-dreaming...
i cant step into it although just for a little moment...
just stick with what im doing now rite??
supposed it to be..

my 1st sister...
her name is nur ainun athirah binti rodin jaya...
currently study in
kuala terengganu mara junior science college..
the most person that i'd never can compete with..
my upsr result..
my pmr result..
is just the same with her..
but still i got a d's in my pmr..
creating a little barrier between us..
next year..
she will be taking spm..
im totally sure..
that she'll excel in the exam..
hope so..
n if so..
more barrier will be created between us..

the third in my siblings..
nor ahmad fitri..
currently study in my previous school..
jeram secondary school
pasir puteh, kelantan..
seems like he will excel too in his study..
why i'd say that...
he repeat the upsr result just like his sisters done..
that's why i'd said it..
he got a placed in faris petra science school..
but he doesn't want to go there..
may be there is something's hiding behing us..
hope he will get another chance after pmr result announce next year..
hope he will be a good n brave person in the future..
he scared of leech very much..
and also darkness..hahhaha
he never go to the toilet alone without anyone accompanied him.....

move to my second sister..
nur syafiqah izzati binti rodin jaya...
she just got 5a's in her upsr result..
the same result again..
thanks to god...
now applying to mara junior science college n also
boarding school...
just like what we, her sis n bro done before..

i think i just stop here..
thinking that i'd wrote lots today..
as a conclusion...
im really proud to have a really wonderful siblings in my life..
although we sometimes does not come with same words..
but it always tighten our bond..
just like the chemical bond between
hydrogen n oxygen that form water...
can't be cut..
always flow forever
no matter what or how..

will be continued...soon........

me myself.. nothing to say...

Assalamualaikum n very pleasure day to all readers...
my new habit..
what a damn funny..
as a girl that will become a woman in the future,
i'm changing from a people dat does not like cartoon and now!!
i'm requesting every people dat have kamen rider movie..
it's cartoon rite??hihi
i've had finished 31 series of kamen rider decade for two days..
its very interesting movie i think..
its all a bout a rider named decade or tsukasa-kun that has been travelled
to 9 worlds of riders...
actually he was also known as the destroyers of 9 worlds riders..
but he changed that fact by helped them in difficulties against enemies...
at the end, he still dont found his world and he travelled more to other worlds..
amazon world, world without rider, daiki world and so on..
but, at last, he had been killed by the 9 worlds riders because if decade exist, then 9 worlds riders will wiped out..

now going through today..
i got and already burned 26 series of kamen rider kabuto..hhihihi

im wondering y i became like this..
no one knows..
no one cares..
its truly absolutely good....

off now for a class..tattaa...

oh ketua pengawas....

"Ina ko tugas mane minggu ni?" tanya Alia.Mereka berdua merupakan pengawas tingkatan 4 di salah sebuah sekolah di Slim River,Perak.
"Hmm..tah la.Rasanya jaga belakang blok.Aku tak tengok lagi jadual.Ko da tengok ke?"tanya Ina kembali.
"Aku baru je tengok tadi.Aku kena jaga kantin la.Gila tak best tol.Da la situ budak-budak perangai cam kambing suka lepak.Memang kambing tol.Da habis rehat susah tol nak blah masuk kelas walaupun da kena halau"rungut Alia.

"Ha ha ha.Diorang kan kambing.mana nak faham.Eh2 suka hati je kita ni mengutuk orang kan.haish2"kata Ina sambil menepuk-nepuk mulutnya.Kambing yang dimaksudkan mereka adalah pelajar-pelajar yang susah hendak mendengar kata walaupun sudah berulang kali ditegur.

"Sekali sekala takpe kannn.Eh2 tu ketua pengawas kesayangan ko kan?fuyoo hensemnya.tergoda I.Ko minat dia kan Ina? Takpe-takpe aku takkan rampasnya.Aku suke tengok muka dier.Cam chinese skit-skit.Mata dier sepet and ade lesung pipit bile senyum.Comelnya.Ehem2 Ina.hahah"usik Alia.Ina sudah kemerah-merahan mukanya.Memang sejak tingkatan 1 lagi Ina sudah meminati ketua pengawasnya itu.

"Wei da-da la 2.Tengok tu.Blue hippo datang.Kang tak pasal-pasal kena marah.Ko la ni ajak aku sembang lagi.Tengok da kul 7.25.Eh2 sebelum tu teman aku tengok jadual tugas dulu"kata Ina sambil menarik tangan kawan baiknya,Alia.


Sesi persekolahan berjalan seperti biasa.Seperti dijangka Ina bertugas di belakang blok D bersama-sama dengan seorang pengawas f5.Kadang kala apabila ketua pengawas meronda kawasan itu jantung Ina pastu berdegup kencang.Alia pula tidak habis-habis memerlinya.Pada suatu hari ketika berada di dalam kelas Ina dikejutkan dengan kehadiran sepucuk surat di celah buku Matematik Tambahannya.Dia memandang sekeling dan kembali menatap suratnya itu.Selesai membacanya dia melipat surat itu dan menyimpannya di dalam beg sekolahnya.Sungguh nak muntah membacanya.Uwekk!.Ayat jiwang karat seh!.Entah siapa la yang memberinya surat itu.Ayat cam hampeh je.Jiwang betul.Ina memandang Alia disebelahnya yang sedang tidur nyenyak.

'Ewah! sedapnya ko tidur.Mentang-mentang takde cikgu.Nanti ko!'hati Ina berbisik nakal.Perlahan-lahan Ina menepuk bahu Alia dan berbisik

"Oii cikgu masuk la.Selamat pagi cikgu" Alia yang terkejut terus bangun dan menjerit dengan kuatnya "Selamat Pagi Cikgu".Kelas yang hingar-bingar itu terus terdiam.Kalau ada orang kentut pun pasti semua akan mati di situ juga.Semuanya memandang ke arah Alia.Alia memandang sekeliling dan tersengih-sengih.Dia duduk kembali di tempatnya.Mata Alia tajam memandang ke arah Ina yang tergelak-gelak tak hengat dunia."Amboii anak dara.Nak gelak tu tak yah la over sangat.Tu ketua pengawas ko depan pintu.abis la dier tengok ko gelak.jatuh saham."terus terdiam Ina mendengar ayat Alia itu.Matanya terus memandang ke pintu dan mencari-cari ketua pengawasnya itu.Dia memandang semula ke arah Alia yang sudah tergelak.Cis! 1-1.


Peperiksaan pertengahan tahun sudah sebulan berlalu.Result yang diterima juga amatlah membanggakan.Kini pelajar-pelajar tingkatan 3 dan 5 sudah mula sibuk untuk pergi 'berperang' dengan En PMR dan En SPM.Pelbagai strategi mula dirancang oleh mereka.Namun bagi Ina dia sudah berjaya mengalahkan En PMR tahun lepas dan hanya menunggu untuk berlawan dengan En SPM pada tahun hadapan.Sedang Ina sibuk mengulangkaji pelajaran di belakang blok D ketika sedang bertugas,ketua pengawas sekola mereka lalu.Ketika itu hanya Ina sahaja di belakang blok itu.Blok D tidaklah tersorak.Blok itu terletak berdekatan dengan kantin dan dewan jadi tidaklah Ina terlalu takut menjaga di kawasan itu kerana jika terjadi apa-apa sudah tentu ramai yang melihat.Eh apa merepek tiba-tiba ni? masuk balik cite tadi.Ketua pengawas itu mengatur langkah ke arah Ina dan terus dengan selamba beruknya duduk di sebelah Ina.Ina yang perasa ada orang duduk di sebelahnya hanya membuat muka selamba beruk sahaja.Ah! buat pe sibuk nak tengok.tempat awam.sape-sape pun dipersilakan duduk.

Tiba-tiba pembacaan Ina terganggu apabila orang disebelahnya berdehem.'Aphal lak ni?Sakit tekak ke ape? Jangan la H1N1.kang jangkit kat aku lak.habis la.Oii! kalo sakit tekak pegi la makan strepsils jangan la kaco aku study ni'hati Ina merungut.

"Nur Qistina Alesya?"aik? cam kenal je name bukan name aku ke tu?jap2 tengok IC jap.Ina mengeluarkan ICnya dan melihat namanya di IC itu.Nur Qistina Alesya binti Azam Luqman.Eh betul la tu nama aku.Ina menyimpan kembali ICnya dan memandang ke sebelah kanannya.What the..? Ketua Pengawas? Muhammad Zakri Fikri? Oh la la.Dan Ina tiba-tiba melihat semuanya gelap dan dia sudah tidak ingat apa-apa.

Ina perlahan-lahan membuka matanya.Dia memandang ke sekeliling.Mana aku ni? Kat syurga da ke? Alhamdulillah.Eh sape kat sebelah aku ni? cam kenal je.Ina membesarkan lagi matanya.Dia memfokuskan ke arah lelaki yang berada disebelahnya itu.Oh la la.Zakri la.Ape dier buat kat sini? Dia pun masuk syurga gak ke?Ina berdehem perlahan-lahan.Zakri mengangkat muka dan memandang ke arah Ina.Dia tersenyum

"Awak da sedar?Syukur la.Risau saya awak tiba-tiba pengsan kat sekolah tadi.Kelam kabut gak saya panggil cikgu and bawak awak kat hospital ni.Doktor cakap awak ok cuma tekanan darah awak je rendah.Tu la lain kali jaga kesihatan.Study2 juga tapi kesihatan tu penting."bebel Zakri.Haish mamat ni..tau la anak doktor tak yah la nak membebel-bebel mengalahkan mak cik tiri sebelah rumah arwah atuk aku je.

"Hospital?Bukan saya kat syurga ke sekarang?"tanya Ina spontan.Zakri mengerutkan dahinya.Syurga? minah ni betul ke tak?

"Apssal tiba-tiba syurga lak ni.Awak kat hospital la"kata Zakri

"Ouh yeke? saya mane? Alia?"tanya Ina.Haish musykil aku.Aphal mamat ni je ade kat sini.Papa ngan Mama pegi mana lak? Abang long.Angah semua mana?

"Diorang otw.Saya baru je call.Tadi tak sempat call"


"Awak..saya sebenarnya ade mende nak cakap dengan awak ni"kata Zakri teragak-agak.Aphal la mamat ni? nak cakap pun teragak-agak ke?

"Hmm..ape dia? cakap je la"

"Err2...suki desu" uitt..pehal bahasa jepun la mamat ni merepek? da la aq ni failed bahasa jepun.setakat tau artis dier je la.


"I like and love you" ulang Zakri dengan muka yang kemerah-merahan.Ceh! straight forwardnya mamat ni.Takde kias-kiasan lagi da.nak je aku balas.I like and love u too.ha ha ha

"Zakri,I'm sorry.Kita masih muda.Mungkin perasaan awak tu hanya cinta monyet semata-mata.Kalau awak betul-betul cintakan saya,awak hantar la rombongan meminang 10 tahun akan datang"muka Zakri kelihatan hampa tetapi dia masih tersenyum.Tidak lama kemudian dia meminta diri setelah family terchentaku datang.'Oh mama..saya mau kawin..kawin dengan siapa...dengan muhammad zakri fikri'.gatai!


Sudah 10 tahun berlalu.Kini aku telah menjawat jawatan sebagai setiausaha di salah sebuah syarikat swasta.Pada suatu hari,aku dikejutkan dengan panggilan telefon daripada..? Boyfriend? Tunang ? Suami ? Ex-boyfriend ? semuanya bukan.Sudah tentulah daripada mama terchentaku.Mesti dia rindu akan anaknya yang comel lote ni.opss terlebih sudaa..eh2 bukan tengah cakap telefon dengan mama ke? sebentar ya.

"Assalamualaikum.mama ke ni? ada apa call? hah shh2..Qis tau..mama rindukan Qis kan? ye la hujung minggu ni Qis balik jangan risau ye mama." sebelum mama sempat berkata apa-apa aku sudah melancarkan peluru mulutku ini.suka hati je.

"Waalaikumussalam.mama la ni.saje call.tak rindu pun.sapa nak rindu kat budak tak comel tu" usik mama

"Waa!! mama tak rindu kat Qis la..huhu sedihnya.tak mo kawan.Qis nak mengadu kat Papa la camni"

"Mengadu la mama tak kesah pun"ciss! mama sudah semakin kejam.

"Ni hah mama call ni nak bagitau.Aritu kawan papa kamu datang meminang untuk anaknya name Ari.Handsome budaknya.Nasib baik la mama ni ade papa kamu kalo tak memang mama amik la budak 2.Da la hensem.pandai lak 2.doktor katanya.Budi bahasanya,pandai tol menghormati orang tua.Kalo berborak dengan dia memang tak kering gusi la.Agama pun ok.Kira semuanya menepati citarasa la.and FYI mama ngan papa da terima pinangan mereka tu.hehe.jangan marahh sayang.bye.assalamualaikum."kata mama cepat-cepat mematikan talian sebelum jeritan anaknya memecahkan gegendang telingaya.Seperti yang dijangka.."MAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" bergema satu pejabat sehingga kertas-kertas di atas meja pun berterbangan jatuh.Seisi pejabat memandang ke arah Ina.Ina hanya mampu tersengih dan mengangkat dua jarinya tanda 'Peace'.


Akad nikah dijalankan seperti yang dirancang iaitu pada tarikh 17.7.2017.Tarikh kawin pula pada 22.7.2017.Sememangnya 7 merupakan nombor faveret Ina.Tah la.Tiba-tiba je suka.tak tau napa.Ina tidak dapat membantah perkahwinan tersebut kerana awal-awal lagi papa dan mamanya buat tidak tahu apabila dia membantah.Di rumahnya juga,apabila dia sampai di muka pintu untuk membantah sudah tertera sebesar-besar gajah papan tanda berbunyi 'Sebarang bantahan tidak akan dilayan'.Uwaa!! sedihnya.Abang long ngan Angah juga buat tidak tahu sahaja.Alia juga seperti turut berkomplot.Terpaksa la Ina mengikut.Segala jenis mogok yang dilakukannya tidak dilayan oleh ahli keluarganya.

"Qis dok elok-elok.Suami kamu nak masuk kejap lagi tu"mama menegur.Aku sudah selamat menjadi isteri kepada lelaki yang tidak ku kenali.Yang ku tahu namanya ialah Ari.Itu saja.Seorang lelaki masuk ke bilikku dan duduk di hadapan ku.Dia menyarungkan cincin di jariku dan aku menyalaminya.Apabila dia hendak mencium dahiku,aku memusingkan muka dan dia hanya dapat mencium pipiku sahaja.Kamera cepat saja menangkap adegan itu.Aku memandang ke arah mama dan membuat tanda 'peace' dalam diam.Selepas acara membatalkan air sembahyang,aku memandang ke arah suamiku itu.Yela tadi tak pandang lagi coz malu.

Dan pabila aku mengangkat muka memandang wajah suamiku..aku terus pengsan.sebab? Suami ku alien? Suami ku tak hensem? suami ku gemuk? suami ku muka macam kambing belakang rumah opah aku? Tidak! Tidak ! Tidak! Semua salah.Sebab...


Aku memandang ke arah anakku yang mengayuh basikal beroda tiganya itu.Sungguh comel sekali anakku itu.Ehem! tengok la sape mak dia kan? opss terlebih sudaa.Anakku yang berusia 4 tahun itu sungguh nakal dan lincah sekali bermain.Penat betul melayan kerenahnya.Macam manalah agaknya kalau adik dia ni lahir ek?.Aku mengusap perlahan perutku yang semakin memboyot ini.Bukan buncit sebab makan banyak tetapi sebab aku akan melahirkan cahaya mata lagi 4 bulan.Tiba-tiba seseorang mencium pipiku.Aku mendongak dan tersenyum.

"Hai sayang.Baby sihat?"tanya suamiku a.k.a Muhammad Zakri Fikri.Diulangi MUHAMMAD ZAKRI FIKRI.Ulang lagi? cukup la tu.kang glamer la dier.

"Hai dear.Baby sihat la kot.dari tadi menendang-nendang je."

"Aktifnya anak papa.Qairi Fitri meh kat papa.Da maghrib ni jom masuk."kata suamiku mengarahkan anakku masuk.Aku bangun perlahan-lahan apabila azan maghrib berkumandang.Suamiku memimpin anakku masuk ke dalam rumah.Sampai dimuka pintu,aku berbisik ke telinga suamiku..

"I love u dear.Thanks sebab sudi tunggu sampai 10 tahun.I love u so much" Sejak berkahwin aku sudah semakin jiwang.

"I love u too sayang.1000 tahun pun I sanggup tunggu.You know why? Because you are my princess and I love you so much since we in high school dear." ucap suamiku.Aku tersenyum dan terharu lalu mengucup pipi suamiku itu.Suamiku hanya tersenyum dan kami saling berpandangan.

"Mama!! Papa!! Tak elok la berasmarada depan pintu tu.Kan da maghrib ni" kata anakku nakal.Walaupun baru berusia 4 tahun,dia sudah pandai berkata-kata tanpa ada pelat langusung.Aku tak sangka..akhirnya dapat aku dan dia bersama.Oh ya lupa..Alia juga sudah selamat mendirikan rumah tangga dengan jejaka pilihannya.Mereka bahagia bersama 3 orang anak.Happy ending.

ni adalah benar... sila baca sehingga habis...dan tlg sebarkan kepada seberapa byk org Islam yg boleh... Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh ini adalah surat wasiat dari penjaga makam Nabi Muhammad SAW iaitu Sheikh Ahmad Maeine (Saudi Arabia). pada suatu malam ketika membaca Al-Quran di makam Rasulullah SAW selepas membaca lalu hamba tertidur, dalam tidur hamba bermimpi didatangi Rasulullah SAW lalu bersabda kepada hamba, dalam 60 000 orang yang meninggal dunia di zaman ini tiada seorang pun yang matinya dalam keadaan beriman. (a)isteri tidak mendengar kata suami. (b)orang kaya tidak lagi bertimbang rasa. (c)orang tidak lagi berzakat dan tidak membuat kebajikan. Oleh itu wahai Sheikh Ahmad, hendaklah kamu menyedarkan kepada orang Islam ini supaya membuat kebajikan,kerana hari penghabisan(Qiamat) akan tiba di mana bintang akan terbit dari langit, sesudah itu matahari akan turun di atas kepala. PESANAN HAMBA INI (a) berselawat - untuk junjungan Nabi kita Muhammad SAW. (b) bertaubatlah - dengan segera sementara Pintu Taubat masih terbuka. (c) Bersembahyanglah (d) berzakat - jangan ditinggalkan. (e) Menunaikan Fardhu haji - bila berkemampuan. (f) Jangan menderhaka kepada kedua ibu bapa. UNTUK MAKLUMAN 1. seorang saudagar dari bombay telah menerima surat ini dan beliau telah mencatak sebanyak 20 salinan dan mengirimkan kepada orang lain, dia kemudiannya dianugerahi Allah dengan mendapat keuntungan yang besar dalam perniagaannya. 2. seorang hamba Allah telah menerima surat ini tetapi tidak mengendahkannya dan menganggap wasiat ini palsu, maka selang beberapa hari kemudian anaknya meninggal dunia. 3. Pada tahun 1977 Tun Dato Mustapha bekas Ketua Menteri Sabah menerima wasiat ini kemudian mengarahkan setiausahanya mencetak sebanyak 20 salinan dan menghantarnya kepada orang lain, maka selang beberapa hari kemudian dia telah mendapat hadiah dari kebajikan masyarakat di malaysia timur. 4. tan sri ghazali jawi, bekas menteri besar perak secara tidak langsung dipecat dari jawatannya kerana apabila beliau menerima wasiat ini beliau terlupa mencetak 20 salinan untuk disebarkan kepada orang lain tetapi beliau telah menyedari kesilapannya lalu beliau mencetak semula wasiat ini dan mengirimkannya kepada orang lain, beberapa hari kemudian beliau telah dilantik menteri Kabinet Perdana Menteri. 5. Zulfikar Ali Bhuno telah menerima surat wasiat ini dan tidak percaya akan kebenarannya juga menganggap palsu lalu membuangnya ke dalam tong sampah seminggu kemudian beliau telah dijatuhkan hukuman pancung sampai mati. 6. di Terengganu, seorang pekerja bengkel kenderaan telah menerima wasiat ini dari pengirim yang tidak dikenali yang datangnya dari Perak lalu beliau membuat sebanyak 20 salinan seperti yang dituntut. Alhamdulillah dia dianugerahkan oleh Allah seorang gadis berakhlak mulia seperti yang dituntut oleh Islam. baginya anugerah ini paling agung dan tidak ada tandingannya. 7. Di Terengganu juga, seorang hamba Allah telah menerima surat ini dari orang yang tidak dikenali tetapi beliau tidak mengendahkannya dengan mengatakan ianya bohong belaka dan sengaja mengada-adakan untuk menakutkan orang yang membacanya. Beberapa hari kemudian dia telah mendapat penyakit ganjil dan penderitaanya amat menyedihkan. setelah tiga minggu mendapat rawatan rapi di hospital, penyatkitnya sukar juga diubati oleh doktor. Akhirnya beliau teringat akan wasiat ini dan mengedarkannya kepada orang lain. Semingu kemudian barulah beliau beransur sembuh sehingga sekarang. Banyak lagi contoh-contoh orang yang menerima wasiat ini tetapi tidak mempercayainya dan tidak mengedarkannya atau menyampaikan kepada orang lain. dimana mereka mendapat malapetaka. setelah kejadian yang menggembirakan dan menyakinkan ini anda jangan lupa menyampaikan 20 salinan wasiat dalam masa 96 jam dari masa anda menerimanya....

9 GrEaT QUeStIoNs AnSwErEd!!!!!...

1- in public toilet, is it better to use a paper towel or an electric hand dryer??
go for the hot air..
the energy needed to heat n blow air at your hands is far less than the energy needed to make transport paper towels n haul waste away..
one US study found dat nine fully grown trees are cut down to supply an average fast-food restaurant with paper towels over the year;
the tossed towel then create over 450 kilograms of landfill waste..
the hand dryer also more hygienic..
doctors at university of ottawa claim the hot air gets into more crevices in the skin,
killing off germs quicker...

2- should i do dirty dishes by hand or use a dishwasher??
this one's not crystal clear,since it all depends on
how u hand wash and on the model of dishwasher...
according to Tanya Ha, the author of Greeniology,
old-style washing,
using one sink for washing and another for rinsing,
consumes 16-20 litres of water..
"however, the amount increases considerably if you rinse dishes
under running tap water instead of using a filled sink or bucket."
Research by the British government's Market Transformation Programme last year
found that dishwahers get items cleaner and use about 75 per cent less water..
the key is having a modern model..
dishwashers built today use around 95 per cent less energy
than those built 30 years ago, says Ha.
Older models can use up to 90 litres of water a load;
modern two-drawer dishwashers use as little as nine litres..
to be even greener, stick to full loads and use the no-heat or air-dry option..

3- should i do my laundry in a front-leader or top-loading washing mashine??
front-loaders win,hands down..
top-loaders have faster cycles but they use much more water, energy, n detergent..
when u are buying a new machine,
look for the labels listing its energy and water ratings..
also choose a machine size that suits your household..
even if u're not planning on buying a new machine,
u can still make your current washer more friendly..
clean the filter, use the minimum amount of detergent,
stick to cold water and stick with full loads..

4- what should i eat for dinner tonight??
out of everything u do,
what u choose to eat has the biggest impact on the environment,
says Rebecca Blackburn, author of
Green Is Good: Smart Ways to Live Well and Help the Planet..
"Farming uses more resources than any other industry..
it also produces one fifth of our greenhouse gas emissions.."
in fact, one third of the average person's carbon footprint
is due to their intake of animal-based food,
which is far more than the impact of driving a car
of the energy used in our homes..
so should we turn vegetarian???
Blackburn says u'll surprised at how much u can help the environment
simply by reducing your red-meat intake even slightly..
in fact, eating three kilograms less red-meat each year is
equivalent to reducing household water use by half!!
Blackburn's handy tip: go for Meatless Monday...

5- is it correct that flicking fluoro lights on and off uses more energy??
actually no.. new data suggests frequent switching
doesn't shorten the life span of bulbs or waste energy..
compact fluorescent bulbs are basically energy-efficient versions of
the strip lighting we used to put in bathrooms..
manufacturer Osram is now selling a bulb that
it claims can be switched 500,000 times
- equivalent to 91 times per day over its 15-year life..

6- when it comes to grocery shopping, should i do a big shop
each month or fortnight, or should i shop every few days??
around the world, billions of dollars worth of food gets thrown out each year..
the United Nations Food Programme reports that
just five per cent of leftovers in the US alone
can feed four million people in Africa..
"it's not just money that's being wasted,
it's the resources that went into making the food," says Blackburn..
"Do an audit of the fridge before u go shopping and
figure out what's left behind,
what went off and why u didn't eat the food."
so by all means do a big monthly shop of durables and non-perishables,
but buy your fresh fruit and vegetables every couple of days
so they don't sit in the crisper unused..

7- are the new hybrid cars that much better than small, fuel-efficient, conventional cars??
hybrid cars are not the be-all and end-all..
"choose the smallest car that u can manage and
choose the most fuel-efficient car in the range," says Blackburn..
"u can make a big difference without buying a hybrid," she adds..
"if money's an issue, you'd be far better off spending the extra money on
a rain-water tank, solar hot water, insulation and
energy-efficient appliances."

8- what's best: curtains or venetian blinds??
when it comes to keeping your house insulated,
curtains win hands down..
Venetian blinds don't reduce heat transfer at all:
a close-fitting, lined, floor-length curtain with a pelmet
will reduce heat loss in winter by one third..
to keep the radiant heat out in summer,
install outdoor shutters, awnings or miniature louvres..
window films provide some protection from the sun
but are less effective than external blinds,
and they also don't protect against heat loss when it's cold..

9- when it comes to baby, what's best: disposable nappies or cloth nappies??
lets call this a draw..
several independent studies
- taking into account all the environmental factors
such as raw materials and energy usage,
emissions of air and water pollution,
and even waste management
- conclude that both have roughly the same environmental effect...
but the dollar cost is another equation..
