Earth Hour Daily Green Tips March 31st 2013

DAILY GREEN TIPS

Day 31: March 31st 2013 – END

A bottle of sand in toilet’s tank. The old folk wisdom that says place a brick in your toilet’s water tank is partially correct: It’s an effortless way to save water, but a brick isn’t the best choice of object. Use a plastic bottle filled with water or sand instead. Most toilets will flush perfectly well with a little less H2O. The average model uses three to seven gallons per flush. A bottle in the tank will displace enough water to save half a gallon to a gallon each use, or up to about 10 gallons a day in a typical home. All you have to do is drop a little sand or some pebbles into a bottle, fill it with water, and put it in the tank, making sure not to disturb the toilet’s working parts. Many toilets flush well with a submerged 2-liter soda bottle, but experiment to find out what size bottles fit best and produce the best flush.

Sebotol Pasir dalam Tangki Toilet. Kebiasaan orang jaman dulu untuk menceburkan batu bata di tangki air toilet rupanya ada benarnya. Hal ini adalah cara mudah menghemat air, tetapi batu bata bukanlah pilihan terbaik. Sebagai gantinya, gunakan botol plastik yang diisi dengan air atau pasir. Kebanyakan toilet tetdap dapat menyiram dengan baik meski sedikit air (H2O). Rata-rata se semua tipe toilet menggunakan 3-7 galon air per sekali siram. Sebuah botol air/pasir yang ditaruh dalam tangki dapat menghemat setengah galon setiap kali tombol siram ditekan, atau sampai sekitar 10 galon per hari di pada umumnya. Yang perlu Anda lakukan adalah mengisi pasir atau kerikil ke dalam botol, mengisinya dengan air, dan memasukkannya ke dalam tangki, dan pastikan tidak mengganggu bagian onderdil mekanik dalam toilet. Banyak toilet dapat menyiram dengan baik meski ditimbun sebotol air ber-volume 2 liter, tetapi lakukanlah percobaan untuk mencari tahu ukuran botol yang sesuai agar menghasilkan siraman yang terbaik.

Give Up “Take Away” – Take the Time for a Sit-Down Lunch!

In most urban living, people are always in a rush and rarely take the time to sit down and relax even for a lunch. As a result: unnecessary amounts of waste caused by disposable cutlery and plastic products that come with “take-away” and “to-go” meals. The biggest problem with take-away food is the excessive packaging and it’s bad enough that more than 12% of our nation’s waste is made up of plastic. So, stop forking around with disposable plastic packaging and utensils and sit down for a real meal with real forks and knives! It reduces waste and decreases level of stress.

Berhenti Beli Makanan “Take-Away” – Luangkan Waktu untuk Duduk Makan Siang!

Di perkotaan, umumnya orang selalu terburu-buru dan jarang meluangkan waktu untuk duduk dan bersantai, bahkan untuk makan siang sekalipun. Akibatnya, jumlah yang limbah terlalu banyak disebabkan oleh sendok garpu sekali pakai dan produk plastik hasil dari makanan “take-away”. Masalah terbesar dengan makanan yang dibawa pulang adalah kemasan yang berlebihan, dan sayangnya lebih dari 12% dari limbah bangsa ini terdiri dari plastik. Jadi, berhentilah pakai garpu plastik serta peralatan makan plastik sekali pakai. Luangkan waktu untuk makan siang yang benar dengan garpu dan sendok yang sesungguhnya!

Lightbulbs to Energy-Saving Lamp. Start replacing all your lightbulbs to CFLs (compact fluorescent lamp), or Energy-Saving Lights/Lamp. CFLs use one-fifth to one-third the electric power, and last eight to fifteen times longer. A CFL has a higher purchase price than an incandescent lamp, but can save over five times its purchase price in electricity costs over the lamp’s lifetime.

Lampu Bohlam menjadi Lampu Hemat Energi. Mulailah mengganti lampu bohlam Anda dengan lampu neon atau lampu hemat energi yang biasa disebut juga dengan CFL (compact fluorescent lamp). Lampu neon jenis CFL menggunakan seperlima atau sepertiga energi listrik dibanding lampu bohlam biasa dan delapan hingga lima belas kali lebih awet. Lampu neon CFL relatif sedikit lebih mahal, tetapi lebih hemat lima kali biaya listrik ketimbang lampu biasa.

Green Cleaning for Windows and Mirrors. Instead of those harsh-smelling sprays, try this highly effective, simple solution for windows and mirrors. White Vinegar, Water and Newspaper: Mix 2 tablespoons of white vinegar with a gallon of water, and dispense into a used spray bottle. Squirt on, then scrub with newspaper, not paper towels, which cause streaking. If you’re out of vinegar or don’t like its smell, you can substitute undiluted lemon juice or club soda.

Cara Ramah Lingkungan Membersihkan Kaca Jendela dan Cermin. Ketimbang bau kimia menyengat dari produk pembersih kaca yang tidak ramah lingkungan, cobalah solusi efektif berikut ini. Air dan koran bekas. Campur 2 sendok makan cuka putih dengan satu galon air, kemudian masukkan ke dalam botol spray. Semprotkan pada permukaan kaca lalu gosok dengan koran bekas, bukan handuk kertas yang justru menyebabkan goresan. Jika Anda tidak punya cuka atau tidak suka baunya, Anda dapat menggantinya dengan jus lemon murni atau soda.

Whose idea was Earth Hour?
Earth Hour came from a think tank initiated by Earth Hour Executive Director and Co-Founder, Andy Ridley, resulting in the formation of a partnership between WWF Australia, Leo Burnett and Fairfax Media to address the climate change issue. In 2007, there was still a degree of scepticism and denial about the issue of climate change. Earth Hour came as the inspiration to rally people to the reality of climate change and start a dialogue about what we as individuals can do to help address the greatest problem facing our planet today. Leo Burnett partnered with WWF to promote the idea and help make the campaign a reality in Sydney, a campaign which has now gone beyond climate change to symbolise the growing global pursuit of a better, healthier world.

Ide Siapakah Earth Hour?
Earth Hour berasal dari pemikiran yang diprakarsai oleh Direktur Earth Hour dan Co-Founder, Andy Ridley, yang berlanjut dengan dibentuknya kemitraan antara WWF Australia, Leo Burnett dan Media Fairfax dalam mengatasi isu perubahan iklim. Pada tahun 2007, dunia masih skeptis dan menolak isu perubahan iklim. Earth Hour hadir sebagai inspirasi untuk mengumpulkan orang dengan realitas perubahan iklim dan mulai mempertanyakan tentang apa yang bisa kita lakukan sebagai individu untuk membantu mengatasi masalah terbesar yang dihadapi planet kita hari ini. Leo Burnett bermitra dengan WWF untuk mempromosikan ide dan membantu membuat kampanye menjadi kenyataan di Sydney, kampanye yang kini telah melampaui isu perubahan iklim, melambangkan gerakan global dalam menggapai kehidupan yang lebih baik, dunia yang lebih sehat.

Aren’t you using a lot of electricity and resources to promote this event?

Earth Hour takes every effort to minimise our footprint, not just for the hour but all year round. The campaign relies heavily on digital platforms to minimise the usage of natural resources, and we endeavour to keep our footprint to a minimum where possible. However, we do not claim nor do we think it is achievable at this time to create awareness and engagement of so many people on environmental issues with zero footprint.

Tidakkah Anda menggunakan banyak listrik dan energi untuk kampanye ini?

Earth Hour berupaya memperkecil biaya dan energi, bukan hanya untuk acara mematikan lampu satu jam itu sendiri, melainkan juga gaya hidup selama setahun penuh. Kampanye ini mengandalkan program digital untuk memperkecil penggunaan sumber daya alam. Earth Hour berusaha se-ekonomis mungkin. Tentunya upaya ini tidak serta merta mampu menciptakan kesadaran dan keterlibatan banyak orang akan isu lingkungan secara instant.

For Fifth Year, The Media Hotel & Towers Joins Global Communities to Mark Environmental Awareness Event: EARTH HOUR

Jakarta, March 18th 2013 – The Media Hotel & Towers announced its participation in the celebration of Earth Hour 2013. A series of environmental activities have been scheduled during the month of March 2013 to commemorate the global campaign on saving energy, reducing emission and climate change.

Let’s Switch Off Lights and Go Dark for an Hour
By spending an hour in the dark on the evening of March 23rd 2013, The Media Hotel & Towers will join millions around the world to send a powerful message about a brighter future for the planet. The hotel will turn off non-essential lights and unused electronic gadgets in observance of Earth Hour, the global environmental awareness event created by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).

For the last five years, the hotel participated in the cause together with people across the world to switch off lights and came together in celebration and contemplation of the one thing we all have in common; earth planet. Previous year’s campaign successfully reduced 84,203 kilowatt of electricity by switching lights only in one hour. This year, The Media Hotel & Towers will continue the International campaign by switching off lights, applying daily green tips and hosting Earth Hour Cocktail on the evening of March 23rd 2013.

Daily Green Tips
Throughout the month, the hotel also encourages its associates to practice what they call Daily Green Tips. The tips are being read on daily basis and each associate enlivens daily tips on how to create environmentally-friendly working atmosphere as well as applying at their homes.

According to Director of Human Resource Agus Rojali, it includes simple actions in everyday routine of human life, for example, it says: Treat Tap Water Wisely. Turn the water faucet off while brushing teeth or washing hands. Never let it flow unnecessarily. It is suggested to install low pressure faucet. “These tips are very useful to practice on a daily basis, and not only reading it, our associates also love to practice a new tip every day,” said Agus

General Manager The Media Hotel & Towers Algamar Idris said his team continues to encourage guests and associates to participate in the campaign. “This will be our fifth annual participation and we are very excited to enrich our support by hosting various activities. We would like to show our commitment to make the world a better place for us and our future generations, raise awareness on environmental issues as well as involve our guests and associates in green initiatives,” explained Algamar.

About Earth Hour
Earth Hour is a global grassroots movement encouraging individuals, business and governments around the world to take positive actions for the environment, and celebrating commitment to the planet by switching off their lights for one designated hour.

It is the single, largest, symbolic mass participation event in the world. Born out of a hope to mobilize people to taking action on climate change, Earth Hour now inspires a global community of millions of people in 7,001 cities and towns across 152 countries and territories to switch lights off for an hour as a massive show of concern for the environment.

The highlight of Earth Hour 2013 will see the world’s most iconic landmarks go dark for one designated hour, as hundreds of millions of people transcend race, religion, culture, society, generation and geography, switching off their lights in a global celebration of their commitment to protect the one thing that unites us all – the planet.

Frugal Printing. Use both sides of each piece of paper for note taking or printing documents from your computer (at home or work). Create note pads by stapling together once-used paper. The U.S. alone uses 4 million tons of copy paper annually, about 27 pounds per person. That means killing our forest softly.

Cetak secara ekonomis. Ketika mencetak dokumen dari komputer (kantor ataupun rumah), fotokopi atau catatan, gunakan kedua sisi kertas. Buatlah notepads dari kumpulan kertas bekas. Di Amerika saja, empat juta ton kertas terpakai setiap tahun atau sekitar 27 pound per orang. Itu berbarti membunuh hutan kita secara pelan-pelan.

Wash Laundry in Cold Water. An easy way to clean green is to turn the dial on your washing machine to cold. Most loads don’t need hot water, and 90% of the energy used by washing machines goes into heating. The higher the water temperature, the higher the cost to you and the planet.

Cuci Pakaian dengan Air Dingin. Cara mudah mencuci secara ramah lingkungan ialah dengan menekan tombol “air dingin” pada mesin cuci Anda. Biasanya cucian tidak perlu air panas dan ternyata 90 persen energi mesin cuci digunakan untuk memanaskan air. Semakin panas air, makin banyak energi diperlukan.

Reduce Idling. Every moment you spend idling your car’s engine means needlessly wasting gas. Idling for more than 10 seconds wastes more gas than is needed for startup. Overall, Americans idle away 2.9 billion gallons of gas a year, worth around $78.2 billion. What about Jakarta?

Kurangi Langsam Mesin Motor. Setiap kali Anda menyalakan mesin motor tanpa melaju, berarti buang bensin sia-sia. Membiarkan mesin berputar tanpa laju selama lebih dari 10 detik, berarti membuang energi lebih banyak dari pada yang sebenarnya dibutuhkan saat startup. Di Amerika saja, kebiasaan ini berakibat pada pemborosan 2,9 miliar galon bensin per tahun, atau sepadan dengan 78,2 milyar dolar AS. Bagaimana dengan Jakarta?

If everyone turns their lights back on at the same time will there be a power surge?

People celebrate Earth Hour in a variety of ways for different lengths of time, with many continuing to keep their lights off well beyond the designated hour. Therefore, it is highly improbable that everyone will switch their lights back on simultaneously. However, we do work with energy companies and authorities around the world, who assure us that the unlikely scenario of all lights turning back on at the same time will not cause any issues. The load reduction should not be significant enough to disrupt supply post Earth Hour.

Bila semua orang menyalakan kembali lampu secara bersamaan, akankah terjadi lonjakan listrik?

Masyarakat merayakan Earth Hour dalam berbagai cara dan jangka waktu yang berbeda, dan banya kjuga yang mematikan lampu di luar jam yang ditentukan. Oleh karena itu, sangat tidak mungkin setiap orang mematikan lampu kembali secara bersamaan. Namun, Earth Hour bekerjasama dengan perusahaan energi dan pemerintah di seluruh dunia, dan memastikan bahwa menyalakan kembali pada saat yang sama tidak akan menimbulkan masalah. Hal ini sejatinya tidak mengganggu pasokan listrik pasca Earth hour.

Shower Wisely. Replace existing shower heads with the lowest flow product you can find. Shower heads with a mist setting let you reduce water flow even further. Shower instead of taking a bath. Time your showers – try to keep them to maximum 10 minutes. If taking a bath, limit how high you fill the tub. If using dipper, scoop half and shower slowly.

Mandi yang Bijak. Gantilah shower head dengan produk bertekanan paling rendah yang bisa Anda temukan di pasaran. Shower head dengan pengaturan kabut mampu mengurangi konsumsi air lebih banyak lagi. Batasi waktu mandi –misalnya maximum 10 menit. Jika menggunakan bath-tup, batasi ketinggian air serendah mungkin. Dengan gayung, ciduklah separuh dan siram perlahan.

What is Earth Hour’s position on safety?

Earth Hour wants everyone to be absolutely safe and never to turn off any lights or power that would in any way compromise the safety of any individual in a private or public space. So please put safety first when deciding what lights to turn off during your participation. For Earth Hour’s broader I Will If You Will campaign, we will not support challenges that are not safe, not responsible or not respectful. So if it is dangerous, damaging or defamatory please think of others and think of something else for your challenge. We don’t encourage or endorse irresponsible behavior. Remember! Positive for the planet, not negative for life or limb.

Bagaimana prinsip Earth Hour terhadap keselamatan dan ketertiban umum?

Earth Hour memastikan semua orang benar-benar aman dan untuk tidak mematikan lampu apapun atau sumber tenaga yang mungkin akan mengganggu keamanan pribadi maupun ketertiban umum. Jadi utamakan dahulu faktor keselamatan, saat memutuskan lampu apa yang akan dimatikan selama acara. Untuk kampanye Earth hour I Will If You Will, tidak akan ada dukungan terhadap program yang tidak mengutamakan keselamatan, tidak bertanggungjawab ataupun tidak menghormati sesama. Bila ide cenderung berbahaya, merusak, atau mencemarkan, coba cari ide lain. Earth Hour tidak mendukung perilaku yang tidak bertanggungjawab.Ingat! Tindakan positif untuk bumi, bukannya tindakan negatif bagi raga dan nyawa.

What candles should I use for my Earth Hour event?

If you plan on burning candles during Earth Hour, make sure you use 100% beeswax candles or soy candles, which are gentler on our planet – smoke free, non-toxic and non-allergenic. They are also made of natural products, not petroleum-based materials, so they are effectively carbon neutral (the CO2 they emit has already been taken from the atmosphere to produce the wax). If you’re using candles, though, make sure you take care. We suggest you carefully follow these tips: • Candles should only be used under adult supervision • Candles should never be left unattended • Candles should be kept away from children and pets • Extinguish candles before going to sleep • Keep candles away from flammable liquids and gas-combustible materials • Candles should be kept clear of any combustible materials such as paper, curtains and clothing • Candles should not be placed in windows as they can be blown over. Blinds and curtains can also catch alight • Candles should be placed on a stable, dry, heat-resistant surface away from drafts.

Lilin macam apa yang dapat digunakan untuk acara Earth Hour? 

Jika Anda menyalakan lilin selama acara Earth Hour, pastikan Anda menggunakan lilin tipe 100% beeswax (lilin lebah) atau lilin yang terbuat dari kedelai, yang tidak berbahaya untuk bumi- bebas dari asap, bebas racun, dan alergi. Ada juga yang terbuat dari bahan alami, tidak mengandung petroleum (migas), sehingga menjadi karbon netral/alami (Gas CO2 telah diambil dari atmosphere untuk menghasilkan lilin). Jika Anda menyalakan lilin, pastikan bahwa Anda menjaganya. Kami sarankan mengikuti tips berikut –nyala lilin selalu dalam pengawasan orang dewasa –jangan tinggalkan lilin menyala tanpa pengawasan sama sekali –jauhkan dari jangkauan anak-anak dan binatang –padamkan lilin sebelum tidur –jauhkan lilin dari cairan, gas atau bahan yang mudah terbakar –jauhkan dari bahan-bahan seperti kertas, gorden dan pakaian –jangan letakkan di jendela yang dapat tertiup angin -harus diletakkan pada posisi yang datar, tempat kering, permukaan yang tahan api.

What lights can be safely switched off?

That is a decision that has to be made individually but usually the overhead lights in rooms (whether it is your house or a business), outdoor lighting that does not impact safety, computers, decorative lights, neon signs for advertising, televisions, desk lamps, the list goes on and on. There are a few lights we can say with certainty that should NOT be turned off, including safety lights in public spaces, lights for aviation guidance, traffic lights, security lights, just to name a few. We ask people to use common sense. Before you turn off any lights for public spaces Earth Hour recommends you check with local officials or community centres. In your own home, use common sense with respect to safety. Keep small night lights on for basic safety especially in halls and on stairs. Make sure you have alternative light sources handy before Earth Hour starts, like torches or flashlights. That way if you need to see, you have a light source close at hand, and you can still respect the spirit of Earth Hour and keep yourself and your family safe.

Lampu seperti apa yang dapat dimatikan?

Pilihan ini tergantung individu masing-masing. Namun biasanya yang dimatikan adalah lampu langit-langit ruangan (baik di rumah ataupun perkantoran), lampu di luar ruangan yang tidak berdampak pada keselamatan/ketertiban, komputer, lampu hias, lampu neon papan iklan, tv, lampu meja, dan sebagainya. Beberapa lampu justru jangan dimatikan, diantaranya lampu penerangan umum, lampu bandara, lampu traffic lights, lampu penerangan jalan, dsb. Sebelum mematikan lampu di ruang publik, Earth Hour menganjurkan Anda untuk mengecek kepada petugas setempat. Di rumah Anda sendiri, gunakan kesadaran rasional demi keamanan. Tetap nyalakan lampu dengan penerangan kecil untuk standar keamanan terutama di aula dan tangga. Sebeum memulai Earth Hour, pastikan lampu alternartif (seperti senter) ada di tangan Anda. Dengan begitu Anda masih dapat melihat sambil tetap mendukung semangat Earth Hour, menjaga diri Anda dan keluarga tetap aman.

Isn’t switching the lights off dangerous? What about public safety?
Earth Hour only asks people to turn off the non-essential lights for one hour – not lights that affect public safety. Earth Hour is also a celebration of the planet so it’s important to enjoy the moment in a safe environment.

Apakah mematikan lampu berbahaya? Bagaimana dengan ketertiban umum?
Earth Hour mengajak masyarakat untuk hanya mematikan lampu yang kurang penting saja, selama satu jam – bukan lampu-lampu vital yang dapat berpengaruh terhadap keselamatan dan ketertiban umum. Earth Hour merupakan perayaan bagi bumi, hal ini menjadi penting untuk dapat menikmati momentum tersebut dengan rasa nyaman dan tertib.

But our aspiration from the beginning was to go far beyond the hour itself. In 2012, Earth Hour launched I Will If You Will, a platform to incentivize and inspire individuals to share their commitment to the planet with their friends, colleagues, leaders and networks. Earth Hour also encourages and promotes many other initiatives around the world, including the Earth Hour City Challenge, the Earth Hour People’s Projects and many national and local actions that take the campaign beyond the hour.

Apakah kampanye ini sekadar mematikan lampu?

Earth Hour menyakini bahwa tindakan simbolis selama satu jam sangatlah penting dalam mengajak masyarakat dunia. Tetapi sejak awal, aspirasinya sebenarnya lebih jauh dari sekadar mematikan lampu itu sendiri. Pada tahun 2012, Earth Hour meluncurkan kampanye I Will If You Will, sebuah program untuk memacu dan menginspirasi tiap individu untuk berbagi komitmen terhadap bumi dengan sahabat mereka, rekan kerja, atasan dan kerabat. Earth Hour juga mendorong dan mempromosikan banyak inspirasi di penjuru dunia, termasuk Earth Hour City Challenge, merupakan program nasional dan aksi lokal yang menjadikan kampanye itu lebih dari sekadar “satu jam mati lampu”.

Blood Drive: Little Blood for Many Lives

From total of 4.5 million bags of blood needed in Indonesia, Palang Merah Indonesia (PMI) or Indonesian Red Cross collected only 70 percent and it is only 3.5 million bags of blood. Triggered by this fact, The Media Hotel & Towers Jakarta organized blood donation at the hotel’s premises.

TIPS MENGATASI BIBIR PECAH-PECAH

Bibir pecah-pecah, kedengarannya merupakan masalah sederhana. Tapi, jika sudah pernah merasakannya, Anda pastinya sudah tahu kalau masalah ini bisa menyebabkan iritasi dan menimbulkan rasa sakit, terutama saat makan. Bibir pecah- pecah ini juga bisa mengalami peradangan dan menimbulkan luka goresan. Jika tidak ditangani dengan benar malah bisa memicu retakan dan pendarahan pada bibir.

Hal ini tentunya akan sangat mengganggu aktifitas anda. Tetapi masalah ini bisa dicegah dan jika sudah mengalaminya, anda juga bisa melakukan berbagai cara untuk menghentikannya. Berikut beberapa tips yang bisa menjadi panduan anda dalam mencegah dan mengatasi masalah bibir pecah-pecah.

Pencegahan

Saat bibir mulai mengering, biasanya hal  yang pertama yang mungkin anda lakukan adalah usaha melembabkannya dengan cara menjilatnya. Hal ini akan meredakan masalah bibir kering untuk sementara waktu. Tapi, begitu ludah mengering,  bibir anda bahkan akan lebih kering dari sebelumnya. Penyebabnya, menjilat bibir akan menghilangkan minyak pelindung alami bibir anda. Selain itu,  zat kimia diludah yang berfungsi mencerna makanan malah akan berusaha mencerna bibir. Karena itu, salah satu cara mencegah bibir kering jadi pecah-pecah adalah dengan berusaha tidak menjilatnya.

Ada baiknya menjaga kelembaban tubuh sepanjang hari dengan memperbanyak minum air. Selain itu, saat berada di luar ruangan, jangan lupa melindungi kulit bibir anda dengan lip balm yang mengandung sunscreen bagi bibir sensitif anda. Jika anda perokok, maka  berhentilah. Merokok akan mengeringkan minyak bibir dan meninggalkan bibir dalam keadaan kering sehingga mudah pecah-pecah.

Penanganan

Jika segala upaya pencegahan gagal dan bibir anda tetap pecah-pecah dan berdarah, segeralah melakukan pengobatan.  Cara pertama, pilihlah lip balm yang didisain khusus untuk bibir pecah-pecah. Hal ini berfungsi  mencegah penambahan bibir pecah-pecah. Dan untuk mengangkat sel-sel kulit kering dari bibir, oleskan vaselin dalam jumlah kecil ke sikat gigi ( yang masih baru dan hanya sekali pakai) kemudian gosokkan secara perlahan ke area yang mengering di bibir. Hal ini akan mengangkat semua sel-sel kulit mati dan kering dari bibir anda. Akan tetapi, hindari hal ini jika bibir dalam keadaan berdarah. Jika bibir meradang, oleskan krim hydrocortisone untuk mengurangi peradangan. Selain itu pastikan menjaga kelembaban tubuh dengan memperbanyak minum air dan menghindari minuman yang berkafein setiap harinya. Dan jika ruangan anda terasa kering dan panas, hidupkan pelembab ruangan untuk menjaga kelembaban udara. Udara kering juga bisa memperburuk kondisi bibir anda.

Anda  bisa juga mengatasi bibir pecah-pecah dengan mengoleskan sedikit mentega ke bibir. Cara ini bisa menjaga kelembutan bibir dan membantu menyembuhkan retakan. Ambillah beberapa kelopak bunga mawar, selanjutnya dioleskan ke bibir. Cara ini tidak hanya akan mengatasi kekeringan tetapi juga mencegah hilangnya warna pink di bibir.

Oleskan susu krim pada bibir. Ini bisa membantu mengangkat kulit kering yang mati dan melembutkan bibir.  Atau gosokkan potongan mentimun ke bibir. Cara ini bisa membantu mengatasi bibir kering dan pecah-pecah. Atau anda juga bisa menggunakan gel lidah buaya untuk menghentikan bibir pecah-pecah.

4 Hal Wajib diketahui Soal Kesehatan Lidah

Selama ini, masalah kesehatan mulut hanya berfokus pada gigi dan gusi saja. Padahal, kebersihan lidah juga mempunyai andil besar untuk menjaga agar mulut anda tetap sehat.

Lidah adalah bagian penting dari mulut, sehingga anda tidak boleh melupakan untuk selalu  membersihkannya setiap kali menggosok gigi. Berikut adalah empat hal yang harus anda ketahui tentang kesehatan lidah:

1. Lidah perlu dibersihkan

Jika diperhatikan, permukaan lidah sesungguhnya memiliki benjolan kecil, yang disebut papile. “Permukaan lidah merupakan tempat pelabuhan bakteri, “kata  Dr. Euan Swan, program manager dari Dental Association, Ottawa. Bahkan, sebuah riset dari  university of Michigan School of Medicine menemukan sekitar sepertiga spesies bakteri  yang ditemukan di lidah tidak akan berkembang pada bagianm mulut lainnya (yang akan menetap dilidah). Kuman yang terjebak di lidah dapat menyebabkan bau mulut dan mempengaruhi  indera perasa. Pertumbuhan bakteri yang berlebih pada lidah dapat mengubah lidah anda kuning, putih atau bahkan hitam  dan tampak berbulu.

Biasakan untuk membersihkan lidah setiap kali anda menyikat gigi. Anda dapat menggunakan pembersih  lidah setiap kali anda menyikat gigi. Anda dapat menggunakan pembersih lidah, sebuah alat kecil yang dirancang untuk mengikis lidah. Jika tidak mempunyai  alat pembersih khusus, anda juga bisa menggunakan sikat gigi.

2. Beberapa layak mendapat perawatan ekstra

Lidah yang jarang dibersihkan lama-kelamaan akan mulai menebal dan mengeras. Anda harus berhati-hati ketika akan mengikisnya, karena bukan tidak mungkin dapat merusak jaringan pada lidah. Anda dapat melindungi lidah dengan memberikan semprotan pelembab mulut atau gel dan menunggu 10 sampai 15  menit,  kemudian baru menyikatnya.

3. Lidah bisa terkena kanker

Berdasarkan data riset kanker WHO  (Globocan 2008), kanker mulut merupakan jenis kanker yang paling banyak diderita pria di asia Tenggara setelah kanker paru-paru. Masih menurut  riset Globocan, diperkirakan ada sekitar 5.000 kasus kanker mulut di Indonesia pada tahun 2008 dengan jumlah kasus kematian mencapai 2. 143 orang.  Angka kasusnya relatif cukup tinggi karena memang sulit untuk mendeteksi perkembangan kanker mulut. Oleh karena itu, para ahli merekomendasikan untuk melakukan  skinning atau pemeriksaan kesehatan mulut seminggu sekali (bila usia diatas 40 tahun). “ Periksa lidah anda di cermin dan lihat kondisi disekitarnya. Periksa bagian bawah, atas dan samping. Carilah jika ada perubahan pada kulit lidah, luka, bercak putih atau merah yang tidak kunjung sembuh setelah satu atau dua minggu, “ucap swan.

4. Menindik lidah akan melukai mulut Anda

Para ahli kesehatan gigi dan mulut menyatakan, risiko infeksi akibat tindikan di lidah lebih tinggi ketimbang tattoo.  Peneliti beralasan karena pada dasarnya mulut seseorang sudah penuh dengan bakteri, dan bila ditambah dengan perhiasan logam di lidah, akan menambah kerusakan gigi dan gusi. Bahkan prosedur menusuk lidah sendiri (tindik) diketahui dapat merusak saraf dan mengganggu indera perasa.

Two culinary promotions at the Sukhothai Restaurant: Unlimited Royal Treat and Thai Mango Delight

Feast Like The Royalties at Sukhothai Thai Restaurant

Sukhothai Thai Restaurant is one of the several F&B establishments at The Media Hotel & Towers (formerly known as the Sheraton Media), which I have noticed but never got the chance to try dining at. From the outside, it looks like a fine dining restaurant, so I wanted to wait for the appropriate occasion.

Just before New Year’s Eve last year, the occasion presented itself and there was Thai Mango Promotion ongoing, I’ve always loved mangoes, so it could not have been a better timing. Besides, we went to experience the Unlimited Royal Treat package, which entitles diners to order as much as they want off the provided menu for a very reasonable price of IDR 149,999/pax nett, drinks are charged separately.

Dragon Court Re…

“Kolak Ungu” Introduced at The Media Hotel & Towers

The freshly re-branded Media Hotel & Towers has recently added a new culinary creation to its gastronomic collection. The 5-star hotel which is located at Jl. Gunung  Sahari Raya No. 3 Jakarta introduces Kolak Ungu, a uniquely exotic traditional dessert menu specially concocted by the hotel’s talented chefs.

Kolak is famous in Indonesia as local home-made dessert served as opener of Ifthar tradition or Buka Puasa during the month of Ramadhan. Originally, the menu contains sweet potato, banana, cassava, and mung bean boiled all together with coconut milk, water, sugar and some local spices.

At the Media Hotel & Towers, Kolak is treated to be unique, healthy, fresh, tasty and exotic. Kitchen team of the hotel adds special ingredients and applies a different technique to create a distinctive menu. The menu itself is well-known as Indonesian traditional dessert menu cooked at homes but the hotel would like to bring this menu to the attention of distinguished clienteles of a luxurious hotel.

At the 5-star hotel, Kolak Ungu turns to be an exclusive dessert. What makes Kolak Ungu special is its compote. The fruit compote of regular kolak has cream color while Kolak Ungu gives violet color. “This is because we use Violet Sweet Potato and cook together with other tropical fruits resulting an exotic violet color that invites everyone’s eyes to have a try. We never apply any synthetic food color on the menu. Instead, it’s natural, derived from the sweet potato,” said Executive Chef Dendi Haryadi.

Healthy Sweet

Aside from the violet sweet potato, Executive Chef Dendi also adds regular sweet potato and some organic fruits such as cassava, nata de coco, banana, and dates.  “We only use the finest products from local market and we ensure the source, the distribution, the quality and the hygiene of each material,” explained Executive Chef Dendi Haryadi.

The taste of Kolak Ungu is sweet and recommended to be the first starter menu to break the fasting. It is healthy and friendly to human stomach and its digestion system.  “As experts always recommend breaking the fasting with sweet menu, we suggest guests to try our exotic Kolak Ungu,” said Herinova, Director of Food and Beverage The Media Hotel & Towers.

Throughout the month of Ramadhan, Kolak Ungu is available as one of Ta’jil menus at The Breeze Café, located on 6th floor of The Media Hotel & Towers. With only IDR 65.000,- net per person, diners can enjoy the menu  along with other Ta’jil selections at the all-day-dining restaurant.
