Where to Buy Pepper Spray

Taking steps to ensure personal safety must be a top priority in this time and age. Why be or why feel vulnerable when everyone can protect oneself? Whether you are going to the park for exercise, or you're commuting to and from work, you can equip yourself.

Non-lethal options such as personal safety sprays and stun guns are an essential component in staying safe. Friends have been wondering as to where one can buy such products especially the handy pepper spray. I hear pepper sprays are not legal for use here in Malaysia but I've reason to believe they can be found in women's purses nevertheless. Hey, a woman's got to protect herself! So, here's a source. Sabre Red offers a variety of products for self-defense, including OC spray, bear spray (for hikers, campers, hunters and outdoorsmen), and mace spray.

Sabre Red offers the most potent pepper spray on the market. When you buy pepper spray through Sabre Red, you're guaranteed more sprays per container and a more potent solution than any of the competitors' sprays. Also, most Sabre Red’s pepper sprays contain a marking dye that shows up under UV light, making it easy for police to identify attackers after they have been incapacitated.

Sabre Red has won multiple awards and gained multiple certifications for its fine array of mace spray, OC sprays, and stun guns. If you're asking Why Pepper Spray?, here's a video to watch..

A Source for Education Priograms

Parental care goes beyond basic necessities of food and shelter. Nowadays, with population increase resulting in the job market being very competitive, getting a good academic education could ensure a person getting a better job, subsequently better living standards.

Academic education begins from whence the child has the ability to learn, and that can be from infant stage. The need for child development from an early age has resulted from child development centers being set up to cater to this need.

With both parents going out to work, children at home need to be taken care of. In most countries, there is no one at home to take care of the children. Day care centers are there for this purpose. As the child grows, more mental stimulation and education will have to be introduced into the child's life and by then, nursery schools and preschools are the places for children to spend time in while their parents go to work.

Being busy with making a living, parents sometimes are in a bind finding the right day care centers and such establishments for their children. Thanks to the Internet, the search becomes easier. Whether you are looking for Connecticut day care or Pittsburgh day care, you can find options on the Internet. is one such online search site to help you in your search for the best early education options for your child. If you are looking for CT preschool, for instance, there is enough information onsite to help you make informed decisions for your child's needs.

If it's information on Online Education or Home School curriculum or even Distance Learning you are looking for, will be able to help you find the source you need. Check out the site, you would be amazed at the wide scope of links for different types of education programs and curricula they have.

Direct hire of domestic workers (maids) from Indonesia

Update: June 3 2012 - Indonesian Maids are back to Malaysia

On recruitment of maids from Indonesia, there is good news for employers as they can now hire Indonesian maids directly without having to go through agents. This has been stipulated under the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) recently signed by both Malaysia and Indonesia on May 30. The signing of the MoU ends the maid-freeze to Malaysia in 2009 imposed by Indonesia.

For instance, "if an employer has a maid who wants to return home after her contract ends, and if she has a family member who wants to replace her as a maid, the employer can hire her directly without going through an agency.”

However, employers will have to adhere to set procedures of which they are in the process of finalising by both governments. A work permit will only be issued after a contract of agreement between the employer and the maid has been signed and approval granted by the relevant agencies concerned in Indonesia and Malaysia.

The MoU also stipulates that "the employer would have to give a day off to the maid once a week or one and a half day's pay if the maid opts to give up the rest day and work instead.

If you are new to Malaysia and is experiencing some smarting in the eyes, chances are you are suffering some effects from the haze in the atmosphere. Here in Kuala Lumpur, the air right now is not as clear as it usually is. During this time of the year, the region experiences smog in the air. This is in part due to the smoke from open burning from across the Straits of Malacca when land-clearing activities for farming are carried out. Open burning can also occur from peat fires due to the hot temperatures and little or insufficient rainfall to prevent the ground from getting too hot.

On the other hand, hot weather isn't all bad. At least, people suffering from join pain are not afflicted as when they are during wet seasons. Many people here suffer from arthritis and any arthritis pain relief from supplements is a big help to offer some comfort and put some normalcy back into their daily routine.

Last train out of Tanjung Pagar, Singapore

From The Star:

SINGAPORE: Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd's (KTMB) historic train service which has been operating from the Tanjung Pagar station here for the last 79 years has ended with a royal send-off.

The train was driven for the last time out of the station by Johor Ruler Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar at 11pm last night, carrying more than 500 passengers on its coaches.

The handing over of the Tanjong Pagar station, built in 1932, follows an agreement made between Singapore and Malaysia last year which includes Singapore taking possession of KTM land here.

In return, Malaysia was offered 60% control of projects developed at prime land parcels around Marina Bay and Ophir Rochor.
