No TV After Midnight

The story started a few months before the end of 2021.

One day, my mom told my retired dad to watch TV if he can’t sleep at night. By night, she meant after midnight, when everyone’s asleep. My dad has this habit of sleeping during the day and being a night owl at night. Doing what? Definitely not work-related. From what I know, he surfs the net at night since he can’t sleep. We shut down the WiFi router after 12am but he has his means = mobile data.

Of course, I was very against this idea. No, you don’t! You’re not going to disrupt our sleep with the sound and blasting those non-native radiations at us. I made the no TV after midnight rule a few nights later as the TV activity after midnight continue on. For the few weeks that follow, there was tension in the air and quarrelling among us. I even had to resort to pulling out the Astro card and hiding it. Haha

Yes, I Cut My Own Hair!

Sorry for the long silence. I didn’t fall out of love with blogging. But because I run out of ideas on what to write. ๐Ÿ˜› Anyway, I’m back!

I was tweeting about cutting my own hair today and suddenly got the lightbulb ๐Ÿ’ก moment. Why not talk more about it on the blog?

So, what got me into cutting my own hair? I used to have very rough and frizzy hair. No matter what style the hairdressers styled on me, my hair always turns out ugly. I’d even one hairdresser condemning my hair because of the rough and frizzy hair (of course, I never went back). Since it’s always the same case of ugliness, I suddenly got tempted to cut my own hair. Not because I think I can cut better (far from it) but because it’ll still turn out the same ugly and the bonuses are I’ll gain experience and save $$.

Limiting Our House’s WiFi

Update 31st Dec 2020: My WiFi router is now set to switch off at 12am until 5.30am. Woot! We now sleep before 12am or just a little over 12am.

Update 4th Mar 2022: Our WiFi router is now off between 12am and 6.30am. It’s been going on for some time.

In my previous post, I talked about how I ditched my handphone’s alarm for a real alarm clock as a step to reduce my contact with EMF radiation. As the title of this post says it all, I will be sharing with you how I limit my house’s WiFi with only a small verbal protest from the family.

Our old routine involved operating the WiFi from morning until the wee hours. It bothered me that we expose ourself to the waves for over 18 hours a day. Thankfully, our WiFi router is usually switched off before going to sleep. Many of my neighbors have their routers churning for 24 hours non-stop.

Embracing Alarm Clock Again

Long long ago, I ditched my bed alarm clock for the handphone’s alarm clock. I’m sure you all know how convenient it is using the handphone to surf the internet, play games, listen to music, chatting, messaging, read e-books, etc all from the comfort of your bed. I spent so much time on the handphone that I began sleeping later and later in the night. When I sleep, my handphone would be beside my head or on the floor below my head while the network blast on. For years this was how I spent my bedtime.

After learning more and more about electromagnetic radiation although I’ve heard about it many times before and how we human is an electric being, I seriously start putting the handphone on aeroplane mode when I sleep. I couldn’t power off the handphone because the alarm on my current Nokia 6 wouldn’t work if I switch off the handphone.

When Food Becomes My Addiction

“Please hide the cookies. Don’t let me see or hear where you hide it.” says me.

“Please put the bread out of my sight. Better yet, don’t buy la. It’s processed bread. No good one.” I say. And yet, I still sneakily eat it especially when nobody’s around.

“Ok, eat just a bit.” I say. A little while later, “Ok, I’m eating just a bit nia.” I say.

“Ok, last one!” I say. A little while later, the hand grab for more.

“Why do you finish it, and don’t leave some for us?” says sister *points to junk food Haha
