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.
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.
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.
“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
Nearly 5 years later, my mom still pronounce McNonald sometime. Know what? There’s more. Keep on reading.
In a car, we saw a long queue at a sushi restaurant. Then BAM, mom said “Sushi Mental nice meh?” Wuahahaha
We were talking about our holiday memory at Lantau Island, Hong Kong when BAM, mom said Lanc!au Island! (have to sensor it abit) Hahahaha
Mom said she was going to Parkson, so I reminded her about getting a new lid for her Pyrex, when BAM, mom said she’s not getting Pirate yet. 🤣
In a car again, I reminded mom of her mispronunciation and we all laugh together. Then I asked mom “How do you pronounce that fast food name beginning with M?”. She said in a wary tone “Mc.D.O.N.A.L.D”. My mom is so cute, right? 💗
Can’t believe I didn’t blog for a month! Not that I don’t want to. My laptop nowadays a bit gilar-gilar (crazy) and I’ve been looking for a replacement. I don’t know to go for Dell (so underspec & wifi on/off problem for the model that suit my budget) or Acer (people complain chassis no good? izzit? good spec though). Any recommendation?
Okay, let’s come back to the real reason I write this post.
There’s this house in my neighborhood with several dogs. When I used to bring Chester for walks, we almost never went pass the house because it was [email protected] scary. They don’t only bark, they slam at the fence (ya know how gangster slam at walls? that kinda feeling) and sometimes they can magically break free from the compound and come chase us. One of my last memories of taking Chester for walk were being chased by them. But because I decided to be brave that one fine day, I decided to chase them back. I ran towards them with Chester in tow and shouting in high-pitched voice. And just like that they fled. I knew it was dangerous but I gotta do it.
