Lunar New Year Kolam

Only in Malaysia will you find a Lunar New Year kolam!
 
This particular kolam is at Guan Gong Temple in Pantai Remis in Manjung, Perak. This artwork to usher in the Year of the Monkey was created by Rukumani.  

I came across this interesting Maxim article from October 13, 2015. According to the American Society of Human Genetics, drinking one to two alcoholic beverages a day isn't a bad thing, in fact it's a good thing.
 
University of Iowa researchers delved into some old data and found that DNA was better at finding out how much people drank than asking. 
 
From that conclusion, they used DNA to assess how old the person's biological age was (how many years their body reflected) as opposed to their chronological age. It was here that they found those who drank one or two drinks per day were in much better shape. Plain and simple, you'll just age better than if you didn't drink at all.
 
As long as you imbibe moderately, your body is going to reap the health benefits. So don’t feel guilty about quaffing down that Tiger/Calsberg/Heineken/Asahi/Hoegaarden/Guinness because your body deserves it. And if you aren't satiated, don't feel bad about having seconds.
