Tidal Bore in Sri Aman

Btg. Lupar river in Sri Aman is famous for its tidal bore. Tidal bore is a form of tidal waves occur twice daily usually one in the morning and another in the afternoon. The size of the tidal waves varies throughout the month depending on the water level and also the position of the moon.

At certain time of the month, the tidal bore can get very large and the sight is so amazing. However, the recent tidal bore in Sri Aman is not that big as shown in the photos below. All boats must stay away from the river bank when the tidal bore arrives in order to prevent their boat from any damage.

Since the operation of the upstream hydroelectric dam, the size of the tidal bore is becoming smaller. Prior to that, the size of the tidal bore is so significant that the river bank of Btg Lupar river can easily eroded and cause significant loss to the community.




Another Milestone for PosLaju

Now PosLaju, a unit of Pos Malaysia Berhad, has teamed up with UPS in its effort to reduce delivery time. The service is called PosLaju International Premium which is a collaboration between PosLaju and UPS Asia Pacific Region.

Unfortunately, the service is only for international packages only. I am still not clear what is the advantage of using PosLaju versus using the UPS service directly. Based on my previous experience, I would rather use the UPS service directly since they can guarantee the delivery to be on time as compared to what PosLaju said they can do.

If the PosLaju International Premium can match the delivery reliability and quality as that of UPS then I think the service will be much anticipated since people in remote areas can use the service easily. I also hope that the service should be extended for local or national delivery in order to ensure the packages that we send arrive within the time frame being promised by PosLaju.

Benefits of Exercise


This study concluded that vigorous physical activity for about 15 minutes a day can help one stay young. According to the study, the vigorous physical activity thrice per week not only can make one feel better and relaxed, but can also improve the body's ability to fight off diseases and stress-induced cellular ageing.

This is another reason to motivate me to keep on pounding the treadmill at least thrice a week because after each session, I feel much better and more relaxed. The only problem is that it is quite difficult to find the time to carry out the activity unless you are so determined to continue such activities.
