5 Cool things by Heng Guechly


BOOM!  That’s the sound of a popping balloon.  Like many people, I was initially afraid of balloons.  Some people love them though, using them to decorate for parties, weddings, birthdays, and conferences.  Floating balloons can also be used as a sign of peace and accord in some cases.  Balloons are popular among kids too, who love their vibrant colours and distinctive shapes.  A single, humble balloon can bring peace to a country and humor to our lives.  Make every day special with a balloon!

Recyclable bag

Are you ready? It’s time to think about our environment. Due to the threat of global warming, people are talking about the environment more than almost any other issue and recycling has become a common practice. We all know that plastic bags are terrible for the environment, so why don’t we do our part and start using recyclable bags? Plastic bags pollute the environment, kill animals and consume finite resources, but recyclable bags are completely environmentally friendly.    Use them for as many years as possible, because each recyclable bag has the potential to save as many as 20,000 plastic bags over the course of a lifetime! Let’s help the environment to help ourselves.

Tell Me More English learning software

You are among the billions of people around the world who are trying to learn English in the hope of bridging language barriers in their personal and professional lives.  It is said that if you want to learn English quickly, you have to practise as much as you can.  Well, let me introduce you to “Tell ME More”.  TMM is a computer software program that helps you practise all your language skills, from listening to speaking and writing.  The software is available in various languages, so if, for example, you want to learn French, be sure to buy the French version.

Jump rope

Do you want to lose weight and stay healthy?  You may be tempted to go to the gym or buy some expensive workout equipment, but if you’re a person who doesn’t like to waste money, there may be another way.  Just buy a jump rope and you can work out by yourself.  Using a jump rope is quite simple.  Just hold one end in each hand and twirl the rope slowly over your head and under your feet, keeping your upper arms close to your body.  Remember, it’s all in the wrist!  There are many moves you can try, from the basic jump (both feet at once) to the alternate jump (switch from one foot to the other), the criss-cross (cross your hands in front of your body) and, if you’re ambitious, the double-under (swing the rope two times before hitting the ground and jumping a bit higher).  If you implement this kind of exercise every day, you’ll soon get the hang of it.  Just give it a whirl!

Inflatable travel neck pillow

Do you often feel tired after travelling long distances?  If so, an inflatable travel neck pillow might be able to help! It keeps your neck from flopping around, letting you find a comfortable position without all the tossing and turning.  After a good nap with one of these you‘ll feel positively rejuvenated, with more energy to spend on your travels.  Last but not least, inflatable neck pillows can help spare you the embarrassment of snoring.  So if you’re the one always snoring in the back seat, consider buying an inflatable neck pillow, if only for your friends’ sake. A travel pillow will help youfeel comfortable and free of neck pain. For relaxing times, purchase one now!
