THE MESIAN-MESSAGE NO. 128 - JULY, 2012.
THE HJ. MUHD. ALAM SHAH HA'AMIN EDITION


A FEW CALLS PROVED THEY ARE AROUND AFTER ALL.
I am so glad to hear a few of us Mesians called. They are still kicking around after all. Else, no news might mean no more news from you until someone brought me the bad news. From far away Trengganu, Wong Thing Chin gave me a tinkle. He happened to be in his office when the newsletter Mesian-message 127 arrived. Immediately he thought he had to tell me that he still reads the Mesian-message. We had a brief chit-chat wherein I also heard a few things about his siblings whom I am acquainted.

Then, Abdul Malek Engku Omar, called from Pekan telling me that he just received the Mesian-message. I told him that i was pleased to hear his voice. So, "you are still kicking around, eh!"I said. "Glad to hear from you after so long. Just lost contact by not gone."

From Temerloh, Muhd Alam Shah gave me a tinkle. What's up. He said he wanted to pay up. He has promised to sponsor the one newsletter every year. From his talk he sounded fine. When Loh Kok Keong from Sabah called I was at the wheel in Bentong. He told me that his call to our mentor was cut off. He could not talk. He wanted me to visit Dato' to see if something was wrong. So in the afternoon, I drove up to our mentorfs bungalow. I was glad to see that the patriarch was cheerful and healthy. So no worry!

However, sad to tell you Shek Phin, the two papaya saplings that we so laboriously planted have given up their struggle with the invading weeds. Our mentor commented that papaya trees are more likely to grow into maturity and bear fruit if they grow in the wild. They hate care and tenderness from humans. Even Shek Phin himself has a papaya tree in his house compound which he tended very well. But, it is not growing well, what more to expect it to bear papayas. Maybe it is over-fed with fertilizers and over-wet with water!

In Kuala Lumpur, William Joo is always in contact with me. So is Lem Foong Tee. Yes, Foong Tee has just left for the States to visit her two progenies. Her sister Foong Yong is around and the three of us had met for some old-time-sake chit-chat and filled our tummies. Foong Yong had a double tumble recently. First she hurt her knee and then twisted her heel. There is good news as both injuries have now been healed.

Yip Fook Khim from Johor Bharu has contacted Foong Tee and had a chit-chat with her about all and sundries during the 1950s. Foong Tee could not remember him until he told her of his nickname something like: "Try to remember me, I'm Blackie."

Pathmarajah contacts me every day by forwarding me very informative health tips, cyber news and even jokes plus all and sundries. Thank you Pathmarajah, for all you have done. I look forward to your forwards everyday!!

E-mail forwards occasionally also come from Kumarasamy. Thanks buddy.

I called the maid to inquire about Lee Sai Kan at his 'home'. He is alright and living it up in that geriatrics community.

As for me, Suy Sang, I have a bout of gout that knocked me out recently. I took to self-medication for a few days. It was at home that I stayed. But alas! The medication side-effected my condition to some other complications. All the contents in my digestive system were flushed out until I felt all run down. Did I mention 'complications'? No, on second thought the purging was necessary to clear my body of the cursed gout causing enemy! Is my guess right any of you members of the medical fraternity? Yet later another self-medication has restored my health. So I am now feeling well!

I travelled quite a bit nowadays between Kuala Lumpur and Bentong to make sure that the renovations in the house there are in order to make it more habitable.

From behind the grapevines, came three stories of Lorena Bobbittism that had happened here in Bentong. One jealous woman just sheared off her man's manhood with a pair of scissors. She was jailed six months for that unkind cut.

What happened to the detachment, any reattachment, like John Bobbit underwent? John got back his john. But here in Bentong was the detachment just gone? Did Dick (not his real name) get back his dick? No news! In this instance no news might be bad news!

The story of the court case was reported in the local vernacular newspapers. The other two cases were almost similar. It looked like those ladies have learnt from far away Lorena. Men from near and far, when in Bentong beware of the Lorenas!

Yeah! There is a lot of hoohaas of Bentong being invaded by those little dragon maidens – China girls to be exact. They are around town. A few wealthy oldies have been hooked. Some have even gone broke! These old folks are having a gala time with the sweet young things and it is rumoured that those little dragon girls are very good in pleasuring men.
Amen.

THE GOODNESS OF LEMON

This is the latest in medicine, effective for cancer! Read carefully & you be the judge.
 Lemon 3 Pieces
Lemon (Citrus) is a miraculous product to kill cancer cells. It is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy. Why do we not know about that? Because there are laboratories interested in making a synthetic version that will bring them huge profits. You can now help a friend in need by letting him/her know that lemon juice is beneficial in preventing the disease. 

Its taste is pleasant and it does not produce the horrific effects of chemotherapy. How many people will die while this closely guarded secret is kept, so as not to jeopardize the beneficial multimillionaires large corporations? As you know, the lemon tree is known for its varieties of lemons and limes. You can eat the fruit in different ways: you can eat the pulp, juice press, prepare drinks, sorbets, pastries, etc... It is credited with many virtues, but the most interesting is the effect it produces on cysts and tumors. 

This plant is a proven remedy against cancers of all types. Some say it is very useful in all variants of cancer. It is considered also as an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi, effective against internal parasites and worms, it regulates blood pressure which is too high and an anti depressant, combats stress and nervous disorders. 
 Lemon In Glass Water
The source of this information is fascinating: it comes from one of the largest drug manufacturers in the world, says that after more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970, the extracts revealed that. It destroys the malignant cells in 12 cancers including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas The compounds of this tree showed 10,000 times better than the product Adriamycin, a drug normally used chemotherapeutic in the world, slowing the growth of cancer cells. And what is even more astonishing: this type of therapy with lemon extract only destroys malignant cancer cells and it does not affect healthy cells.

Institute of Health Sciences, 819 N. L.L.C. Cause Street , Baltimore , MD1201

Just cut 2-3 thin slices of lemon and put it in a cup containing drinking water. The water will become "alkaline water". Drink for the whole day, just by adding more water. Take it as drinking water everyday. It is good for health.



THESE THINGS HAPPENED THIS MONTH 50 YEARS AGO
THE FOLLOWING ARE EXCERPTS FROM PAST NOTES
The Ted Miles Diaries Volume II

Excerpt 1: When we finished dinner this evening, I asked the boys to stay at the dinner tables for the "last course". Then everyone got a pile of ikan bilis in front of him, and before the whole thing was over, we had de-headed thirteen katis (an old weighing. (Editor's notes: ikan bilis - anchovies, katis - an old local weighing measure now no more in use.)

Excerpt 2: The Library is now the Coral Island, and the Typing Room is the Haunted House. This school will never be the same again after this year's Carnival.

Excerpt 3: I was at school from eight o'clcok this morning until after midnight. When I got back, I found Mohktar sick with chills and fever, so I put him in my bed and I am sitting up with him. I'm too tired (and still too excited) to sleep anyway. (Editor's notes: too excited because of the great success of the Carnival)

Excerpt 4: When they drove up, I went out onto the porch holding the python. "Get away from me!" said Dick. (Editor's notes: Ted Miles is a snake catcher).

Excerpt 5: I wasted no time in caning him in front of Form Three, his class. I had no cane, so I used my stop-watch lanyard, which must have been very painful. I sent him home then and told him not to come back unless his father was with him. I phone Mr. Seng Toong as soon as Tuck Yee left, to tell him what had happened. "Wait till he gets home.." He said. "he'll get another caning from me." (Editor's notes: Parents supported the teachers those days; not sue them like nowadays!)
