Addiction or Satisfaction

Whilst I was responding to Ms.Kuai question and advice, I thought I should share this.... sometimes I wonder if this would eventually affect my body or would it be any benefit..what say you..

Kuai wah.. kalo telampau 100plus pun inda ngam 2.. mau ada plain water juga.. utk buah pinggang.. normal advice ja bha wel..

I've been drinking drinks that have at least some flavour or taste in it..be the flavour of.. sweet and sour..ha.ha...bitter sweet..(macam tapai pula tau yg ni)..sour and spicy....what so ever...I'd go for it.. it all started since 3 years ago..back in 2005..It doesn't mean that I can't drink "air boning"(ni istilah urang ranau ni kan)..or sky-juice..its just that I can't enjoy these tasteless drink anymore.... How it all started... in 2005, there was a time Penang was badly hit by the drought season..drought mean really kering la..the main water damn in Penang..located in Balik Pulau..was almost dry..hot sunny day almost all day long and limited rain drops to refill the damn...since the water level was going lower and lower...the cleanliness and purity of water supplied to my house became deteriorated..it smells so bad and brownish......you know when you tap a water from a dried well kan..all you can get is muddy water..not to mention its smell..I've lived hard enough when I was a child...I knew all the pain in the ars etc..I've never complaint though..I did probably but that's inevitable sometimes..that was how my beloved mother taught me about life..."what can you get if you complaint..cry or...sad..." she taught us to be brave..fear no evil..and I've lived with the same philosophy since then..

Due to the water problem we had..I opted to buy drinks from shop..Ice-milo..ice-tea..etc..because of the hardship I had to endure to go buy a drink at nearby coffee shop....I started buying..cordial drink..syrups..or more accurately any savoury drink....yang dalam butul mau campur air ba...since then I've tasted and drank many kind of flavour as well as brand ..if you ask, I perhaps able to recommend some good cordial drink..Ribenna tastes good..(publisity pula..) To cut the story short...we're now in 2008...I can count how much water I've drank in a month..not the exact amount but of course roughly less than 2 liters of plain water..how many glasses can you get from that amount..I don't know..I do know that I can drink mineral water without hesitation and without bad face expression..in our office we have a purified water..9 liters a gallon..and sometimes I do actually buy mineral water if I need to but very little..10 bottle a year? Sounds overrated to you but that's a fact..

With the facility I have around me..the Tesco hyper market..I'd usually go there and buy a big bottle of cordial drink (1 liter) I keep on sampling and testing other brand or flavour whenever I go buy for another supply..(am not going to buy the same as I had previously)...this is just another way of me changing the mood..If I don't like it..it will be made as public properties.....anybody can enjoy and have it freely...recently I've just bought a liter of orange cordial..

Back to my main issue earlier...am I an addict? would I be healthy after 10 years of doing so? Frankly speaking, I do worry if this habit would affects my kidney (kencing manis) but I've been maintaining the sweetness of drink I'd drink day and day as I began to realise this has no end..and I can't seem to find a solution to this habit... so far I've had no health issue..no major illnesses or operation made in history..I might have one but I can't find any that so obvious..I watch the TV series of House..everytime Dr. Gregory House debates his theory of patient and sickness, it helps me to evaluate my own health ...So..what say you? Is this an addiction or just a satisfaction issue?

I ll explain more in my blog..:P thanks wel for the idea..hahaha (susah bah mau cari idea memblog ni.. ^^)

so, for advice.. belajar la minum plain water palan2.. Spritzer is the best or any kind of Air Semulajadi la.. sa inda berapa advice RO (suling).. bukan inda bagus, tapi RO talampau TAPIS sampai zat2 dia pun tertapis.. jadi hilang la fungsi air.. My boss said, even not good for kusai.. :D

badan perlu plain water utk cuci tu dlm badan.. kalo tu kancing talampau KUNING.. hehehe..

sweetie~ said...

sy dengar ada urang p mandi sana damn masa drought tu.....patut la sedap ja rasa tu air....keke...

i will call that addiction....i was once addicted to coke....that was during my campus life......but ever since knowing of its contents and ever since i become a health conscious.....i'm now sticking to plain water as much as i can....

or else i'll go for the original juices (minus the sugar)at the shops instead of bi carbonated drinks or the processed one.....

tp slalu jgk ni teh tarik satu kedai mamak....hehe...mau kana kasi kurang tu sda....

klu mau kasi sadap itu plain water....add few pieces of lemon....sadap tu klu sejuk2....aiks...minum ais pun no good....aiyaa

sweetie~ said...

RO is good for detoxification but not for long term consumption nnt cair tu darah and 'cecair2' lain dlm badan....haha...macam one week in every three months boleh minum....depends on your body jgk.....clean blood will result in beautiful and shining skin kenen....macam sy bah cth terdekat...muahahaha....men2 ja ba....

Wel^Beiolman said...

aiseh..my sweetie sempat lg publicity diri..hehe..shet..I think am going to get sick again..

anyway..my first and always fav drink is fruit juice..especially apple..I have my own juice maker back in sabah...

betul ba sweetie...ada org mandi.ngam jg la sia inda minum suda tu air..haha..anyway..my plain water issue is not hypocritical..where ever I go..I would not drink plain water..exception mineral water bought from shop or at somebody's house..if friends house i'd willingly buy a drink prior my visit.

I think its not really that dangerous as long as the sugar amount is controlled...but i've read some news about drink carbonate drink in a local newspaper..can't remember when..the guy drank carbonate drink instead of having his lunch...note: I do this sometimes by asking my colleague to buy a coke for me...thought he can save time to finish his work or waste money on fuel for his car..after been doing that less than a year..he was diagnosed with temporary blindness..thankfully he seek doc advise when it was still in its early stage..or else..it becomes permanent blindness..due to carbonate drink..

sweetie..ko bilang sia addict..I may but its how my body function nowadays...
