25th Anniversary of Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster – Part 2

26 04 2011

Belarus, Ukraine and Russia mark the 25th anniversary of the nuclear reactor explosion in Chernobyl on April 26.

This is the world’s worst nuclear accident and classified as a level 7.

It happened on April 26, 1986 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the Ukrainian SSR (now Ukraine).

Large quantities of radioactive contamination was released into the atmosphere that spread over much of the Western Russia and Europe.

Now we are facing another level 7 nuclear disaster – the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant disaster.

(Please >>>click here<<< to read my post on Fukushima Daiichi disaster.)

I think that nuclear power is efficient but very, very, very dangerous.

These photos show before and after view of Pripyat, a beautiful city that had to be abandoned after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.

Delicious Strawberry Yoghurt Drink Recipe-With Pictures

7 04 2011

Last week my mother bought lots of sweet and juicy ripe strawberries.

She made our favourite strawberry yoghurt drink.

The drink was so tasty.

It is a very healthy drink because the strawberries  are rich in vitamin C, fiber, antioxidant and lots of minerals.

Yoghurt has lots of good bacteria called probiotic, minerals and vitamins.

Honey is also a very healthy food.

So when we mix all of them together, they’ll become a very healthy and tasty drink 🙂

Below is the strawberry yoghurt drink recipe.

We need:

  • Ripe strawberries.

Yummy and sweet red strawberries.
  • Natural yoghurt.

Delicious, white  natural yoghurt.
  • Some honey.

How to make the tasty drink:

  • Cut the strawberries and put the strawberries and yoghurt in a blender.

Put the yummy, red, strawberries and delicious, white natural yoghurt in a blender.
  • Add the sweet, golden honey.

Add some sweet, golden honey.
  • Add some water or some milk or both.

  • Blend them until you’ll get a beautiful pink  juice.

Blend them and this is the result.
  • Serve the drink and enjoy it 🙂

By the way, mom says that you may add some sugar or a pinch of salt to the drink but too much sugar is bad for us.

Pour the yummy drink into a mug or glass and enjoy it...

I think that strawberry yoghurt drink  looks as good as its taste.

It will be a nice drink during a hot day as it is in Kuala Lumpur now :mrgreen:

A magnitude 6.8 earthquake hit Myanmar on Thursday night.

I read in Yahoo News that Myanmar state radio announced Friday that 74 people had been killed and 111 injured in the quake, but was updating the total frequently.

This is the latest disaster that hit Myanmar.

Myanmar is also known as Burma.

————————————————-

The CAL managed to defend Calovinia from Arguay. The king of Calovinia was very happy. The king asked his servant named Urban to give The CAL a few bags of gold and golden coins and also three holiday tickets to the White Chestnut Beach.

White Chestnut Beach

At the White Chestnut Beach, they met Kolilama the purple monkey. When it’s time to go back home, The CAL invited Kolilama for a sleep over at their office in Vateli Street, Calovinia.

The next day Meranda went on a secret mission to the moon. During her mission she discovered  a new planet. Meranda named the new planet Zackron.

Planet Samanine (left) and Planet Zackron (bottom right). Zackron's moons named Honti (middle), Peddol (above left Zackron). Sackremin (above right) was the biggest star around Planet Zackron.

After her mission was over, she called the others and brought them up to Planet Zackron. Bek took a picture of the new planet and gave it to a newspaper reporter. The reporter worked for a popular newspaper named ‘Smeilys’. The reporter came to their office to interview Meranda about Planet Zackron.

The next day, Lia went out to buy ‘Smeilys’. On the front page of ‘Smeilys’, The CAL saw the picture and the news of Planet Zackron. They were very happy.

The news about Planet Zackron was on the front page of 'Smeilys'. 'Smeiys' was a very popular newspaper in Calovinia.

On Friday 11th March 2011, a 8.9 magnitude earthquake and a huge tsunami hit northeast coast Japan.

At least 1,300 people were killed in the disaster.

A lot of people were hurt.

This s the strongest earthquake ever recorded in Japan and the 5th in the world.

Houses, buildings, vehicles, roads, farms and others were swept by the tsunami.

The disasters also caused fire and floods.

I am sad and sorry for the victims and their families.

Photos Of ‘Mega-Mudslides’ In Bolivia

1 03 2011

On Sunday night, a ‘mega mudslides’ hit La Paz, Bolivia after heavy rains brought by La Nina phenomenon.

The mudslides destroyed the houses of at least 4000 people.

The Bolivian president promised that the government will build new houses for the victims.

The poor neighbourhood of Carlapa was badly damaged.

Most of the houses were built on the hills and fell on top of another.

Mudslide is a natural disaster.

I am very sad and sorry for the victims.
