Whenever I checked for the traits of a certain anime character, they always include their blood type.
Japanese and Koreans, kind of like to believe that your blood gives an idea of your personality. This really amused me. Check out if your blood type fits to your personality.

The Perfectionist

Positive qualities:
Reserved, Patient, Sensitive, Responsible and Punctual.

Negative qualities:
Obsessive, Stubborn, Conservative and Tense.

A is most compatible with blood types A and AB.

While outwardly calm, they have such high standards (perfectionists) that they tend to be balls of nerves on the inside. Type A’s are the most artistic of the blood groups. They can be shy, are conscientious, trustworthy, and sensitive.

People with blood type A have a deep-rooted strength that helps them stay calm in a crisis when everyone else is panicking. However, they tend to avoid confrontation, and feel very uncomfortable around people. A types are shy and sometimes withdrawn. They seek harmony and are very polite, but all the same feel that they never really fit in with others. A types are very responsible. If there is a job to be done, they prefer to take care of it themselves. These people crave success and are perfectionists. They are also very creative, and the most artistic of all the blood types, most likely because of their sensitivity.

People with blood type A are also likely to be considered classic “type A’s”: stressed and conscientious. In anime, people like Hotohori are type A’s.

Famous people with the same blood type:
George H. W. Bush, O.J. Simpson, Britney Spears, Alan Alda, Adolf Hitler, Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard Nixon.

The Individualist

Positive qualities:
Creative, Passionate, Strong, Animal loving, Optimistic and Flexible.

Negative qualities:
Wild, Unsociable, Critical, Indecisive, Unpredictable and Unforgiving.

B is most compatible with blood types B and AB.

Goal oriented and strong minded, type B’s will start a task and continue it until completed, and completed well. Type B’s are the individualists of the blood group categories and find their own way in life.

People with blood type B are the most practical of the blood groups. They are specialists in what they do. When they start a project, they spend extra time understanding and trying to follow directions than others might. When they are doing something, all of their attention is focused on it. They tend to stick to a goal and follow it through to the end, even if it seems impossible. They tend to be less than cooperative, as they like to follow their own rules and their own ideas. They are individualists. B type people pay attention to their thoughts a little more than their feelings, and therefore can sometimes seem cold and serious.

People with blood type B are often considered more relaxed, freewheeling, and unconventional than other types, although not necessarily to an unacceptable degree. In anime, the genki, off-the-wall types are type B, along with any kind of well-intended character who’s ruled by their impulses.

Famous people with the same blood type:
Jack Nicholson, Luciano Pavarotti, Tom Selleck, Mia Farrow, Paul McCartney, Leonardo DiCaprio.

The Rationalist

Positive qualities:
Popular, Sociable, Cool and Controlled.

Negative qualities:
Forgetful, Critical, Indecisive, Irresponsible and Self-centered.

AB is compatible with all other blood types. (A, B, AB, and O)

Type AB’s are the split personalities of the blood groups. They can be both outgoing and shy, confident and timid. While responsible, too much responsibility will cause a problem. They are trustworthy and like to help others.

People with blood type AB are hard to categorize. They can have characteristics on both ends of the spectrum at the same time. For instance, they are both shy and outgoing. They easily switch from one opposite to another. AB people are trustworthy and responsible, but can’t handle it when too much is asked of them. They don’t mind doing favors or helping out, as long as its on their own conditions. People with this blood type are interested in art and metaphysics.

AB is considered the worst blood type. In predictability-loving Japan, they’re loose cannons. They also like to set their own conditions and reserve the right to drop out when things don’t meet their expectations. They’re known to be sensitive and considerateâ??at timesâ??but it just isn’t enough to balance out the flaws in this blood type. For a while, some companies tried dividing their employees into work groups based on blood type, and no one wanted to work with the AB group. Anime villains are likely to be type AB

Famous people with the same blood type:
John F. Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe, Mick Jagger, Thomas Edison, Jackie Chan.

The Natural Leader

Positive qualities:
Ambitious, Trendsetter, Independent, Loyal, Athletic, Robust, Passionate and Self-confident.

Negative qualities:
Arrogant, Vain, Jealous, Insensitive and Ruthless.

O is most compatible with blood types AB and O.

Type O’s are outgoing, and very social. They are initiators, although they don’t always finish what they start. Creative and popular, they love to be the center of attention and appear very self confident.

People with blood type O people are outgoing, energetic and social. They are the most flexible of the blood types. They easily start up projects but often have trouble following through because they give up easily. They are flighty and not too dependable. O types always say what’s on their mind. They value the opinion of others and like to be the center of attention. Also, people with O blood are extremely self-confident.

Type O, the most “average” blood type, is considered the best type in Japan.

Famous people with the same blood type:
Ronald Reagan, Queen Elizabeth II, John Lennon, Paul Newman, Elvis Presley, Gerald Ford, Mikhail Gorbachev, Al Capone.

By the way, I’m Type A.

Mens’ pulses are relatively stronger that women’s in general. There are two other differences

– The left side is slightly stronger in men, the right in women.
– The Front positions are slightly stronger in men, the Rear in women

Men’s pulses are relatively stronger than women’s in general. There are two other differences between men’s and women’s pulses. First, the left-side pulse is rather stronger than the right-side pulse in men and vice versa in women.

2nd, in men, the front position is relatively stronger than the rear one and vice versa in women. The “Classic of Difficulties” (Chapter 19) says: “In men the pulse [is found] above the Middle position, in women below the Middle position. Thus, men’s pulse is usually weak on the Rear position, this is normal.



120504 What Did Eunhyuk Do After Drinking for the First Time in His Life?

Super Junior’s Eunhyunk talked about his episode of drinking for the first time in 27 years.

MBC TV’s “Joo Byung Jin’s Talk Concert,” which aired on May 3, had the SM special. On the day,DBSK’s Yunho and Changmin, Super Junior’s Leeteuk and Eunhyuk and Girls’ Generation’s Tiffany and Seohyun made an appearance and talked about their episodes.

Eunhyuk said, “I haven’t drank or smoked for 27 years, but on my birthday I drank for the first time with the members.”

Leeteuk said, “We were at France at the time and we expected to drink wines, but he wanted to drink soju. After, on our way back, we passed by Arc de Triomphe (triumphal arch) and he said he wanted to dance. So he danced and we went back to our hotel.”

Then Eunhyuk said, “I ate ramyun the day after and it was the best ramyun I’ve ever had,” and gave a huge laugh.


If I remember it right, Hyuk tweeted a pic of him together with Kyuhyun and Shindong in Arc de Triomphe… and in his tweet he is like:


“We came down from car and took a photo in front of the Arc de Triomphe while we were on the way back to hotel after the birthday party and also the dinner gathering after (finishing) SS4 in Paris! The reason why we suddenly went down and took a photo, only the people who know (the reason) knew it.”

so the reason why they went there is because he wants to dance at the arch? What, celebrating your first taste of soju? LMAO.

Hmmm personally I was shocked when I learned that he drank alcohol that time… I made a vow that I will finally end my drinking sessions because of Hyukjae. He was like, an inspiration to me, because he doesn’t drink at all. And I never tasted any alcoholic drinks for a year! That’s a record hehehe… But when the rumor came out that he drank with the boys, I was kinda </3 hahahaha. Of course he has every right to do things that he wants, but I hope he will do it moderately… And I hope he won’t consider smoking. Please Hyuk. Don’t smoke. I don’t want you to suffer smoking-related diseases just like my dad. 😦

I’m not a fan of lipstick (I prefer lip balm for every day use) but after reading this news about lipsticks containing a high lead content I can’t help but worry to all women out there who are using lipsticks (now I’m having  second thoughts of using one T___T ) and allegedly it also may effect to men as well :/


Sikat na lipstick kargado ng nakalalasong lead; nakababaog sa kalalakihan
Posted by Online Balita on Feb 17th, 2012

MAG-INGAT sa mga labing may lipstick bago humalik. Maaaring kargado ito ng lead o tingga.

Unang iniulat ng Reuters na nasuri at natuklasan sa isang bagong pag-aaral na isinagawa ng Food and Drug Administration (FDA) na 400 lipstick sa merkado ang positibo sa lead, ayon sa Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, isang koalisyon na nagsusulong ng ligtas na cosmetics and hygiene products.

Ang Maybelline Color Sensation ng L’Oreal USA ang worst-offending lipstick sa grupong sinuri, ayon sa Campaign. Nagtataglay ito ng mahigit 275 beses na dami ng lead kumpara sa natagpuan sa hindi gaanong kontaminadong produkto.

Ang children’s products sa U.S. ay hindi dapat magtaglay ng mahigit 100 parts per million ng lead. Ang highest offending lipstick naman ay nagtataglay ng 7.19 parts per million, ayon sa grupo.

Kapansin-pansin na ang least contaminated ay ang mga mas murang brand: ang Wet & Wild Mega Mixers Lip Balm. Ipinakikita lamang nito na ang presyo ay hindi konsiderasyon sa antas ng lead, ani Stacy Malkan, co-founder ng Campaign for Safe Cosmetics.

“There is no safe level of lead exposure,“ ani Malkan sa ABCNews.com. “It builds up in the body over time. A little bit every day is adding up and staying with you.“

Sinabi ni Malkan na ang kababaihan ay gumagamit ng average na 12 cosmetic and hygiene products kada araw.

Ang lead o tingga ay nakalalasong metal, at ipinagbawal sa paint products sa U.S. noon pang 1978. Ang elemento ay partikular na mapanganib sa mga bata dahil maaari itong magdulot ng blood and brain disorders sa developing bodies.

Walang safe level ng lead para sa mga bata, ayon sa CDC.

Ngunit kumontra ang FDA. Sinabi ng government agency sa Reuters sa isang pahayag na, “The FDA did not find high levels of lead in lipstick. We developed and tested a method for measuring lead in lipstick and did not find levels that would raise health concerns.“

Ang lipstick ang huling cosmetic na nagtaas ng red flags. Sinabi ni Kim Anderson, executive director ng Ava Anderson Non-Toxic, isang cosmetic line ng chemical-free products, na dapat umiwas ang customers sa anumang produktong may nakasaad na “fragrance“ bilang sangkap.

“If they’re using the word fragrance, that company could be hiding up to 600 chemicals under that word,“ ani Anderson, na nagkakampanya ng safer cosmetic regulations. “Seventyfive percent of the time, fragrances contain phthalates, a known-carcinogen that causes reproductive issues in the body.“

Sa isang kaugnay na pagaaral, natuklasang ang mataas na antas ng cadmium sa dugo ng kababaihan at mataas na antas ng lead sa kalalakihan ang nagpapahirap sa mag-asawa para magkaanak.

Ang cadmium ay isang metal na ginagamit sa mga baterya, metal coatings at plastic, ngunit ang pinakakaraniwang pinanggagalingan ng cadmium exposure ay ang usok ng sig arily o. A ng k arani wan g sources ng pagkalantad sa lead sa Amerika ay kinabibilangan ng lead-based paints sa mga lumang bahay, lead-glazed pottery, at kontaminadong lupa at tubig.

Ang pagkakalantad sa mga nakalalasong metals na ito ay maraming masamang epekto sa kalusugan ng tao, ngunit ngayon lamang napatunayan ang epekto sa tao, ayon sa mananaliksik sa U.S. National Institutes of Health.

Ang pag-aaral ay inilathala online noong Pebrero 4 bago ang publikasyon nito sa upcoming print issue ng journal na Chemosphere.

“Our results indicate that men and women planning to have children should minimize their exposure to lead and cadmium,“ sabi ng principal investigator na si Dr. Germaine Buck Louis, director ng division of epidemiology, statistics and prevention research sa U.S. National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, sa isang NIH news release.

“They can reduce cadmium exposure by avoiding cigarettes or by quitting if they are current smokers, especially if they intend to become pregnant in the future. Similarly, they can take steps to reduce their exposure to leadbased paints, which may occur in older housing, including during periods of home renovation,” payo ni Louis.
