Sneeze !!

If you just sneezed, something was probably irritating or tickling the inside of your nose. Sneezing, also called sternutation, is your body's way of removing an irritation from your nose.

When the inside of your nose gets a tickle, a message is sent to a special part of your brain called the sneeze center. The sneeze center then sends a message to all the muscles that have to work together to create the amazingly complicated process that we call the sneeze.

Some of the muscles involved are the abdominal (belly) muscles, the chest muscles, the diaphragm (the large muscle beneath your lungs that makes you breathe), the muscles that control your vocal cords, and muscles in the back of your throat. Don't forget the eyelid muscles! Did you know that you always close your eyes when you sneeze?

It is the job of the sneeze center to make all these muscles work together, in just the right order, to send that irritation flying out of your nose. And fly it does — sneezing can send tiny particles speeding out of your nose at up to 100 miles per hour!

Most anything that can irritate the inside of your nose can start a sneeze. Some common things include dust, cold air, or pepper. When you catch a cold in your nose, a virus has made a temporary home there and is causing lots of swelling and irritation. Some people have allergies, and they sneeze when they are exposed to certain things, such as animal dander (which comes from the skin of many common pets) or pollen (which comes from some plants).

Do you know anyone who sneezes when they step outside into the sunshine? About 1 out of every 3 people sneezes when exposed to bright light. They are called photic sneezers (photic means light). If you are a photic sneezer, you got it from one of your parents because it is an inherited trait. You could say that it runs in your family. Most people have some sensitivity to light that can trigger a sneeze.

Have you ever had the feeling that you are about to sneeze, but it just gets stuck? Next time that happens, try looking toward a bright light briefly (but don't look right into the sun) — see if that doesn't unstick a stuck sneeze!

I am currently working for my first job as an Audit Associate in KPMG Melaka. It has been almost one month working there. After passing all the 9 E-tests, they only put us on job. It is like a new routine for me now, got to wake up bout 7.15am in the morning and prepare for work. Sometimes I really feel hestitate to wake up early in the morning. It is the time for me to start grow up. I got to learn how to cope with stress, learn as much things as possible. I know audit is not an easy task. I am able to commute with some of my colleagues nw. haha.

Shibuya Station

Shibuya Station(渋谷駅, Shibuya-eki) is one of the key focal points of Shibuya. Shibuya Station is the third busiest train station in Tokyo.

Shibuya Station is a train station located in Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan. With 2.4 million passengers on an average weekday in 2004, it is the third-busiest commuter rail station in Tokyo (after Shinjuku and Ikebukuro), handling a large amount of commuter traffic between the center city and suburbs to the south and west.

One touching story behind the Shibuya Station is the statue of Dog-Hachiko

Hachiko is a famous statue of a dog who possessed legendary loyalty to his owner. It is also the name of one of the many exits from Shibuya Station and the prime meeting place before a night out. Just hanging out near Hachiko for a while will give you some great people-watching opportunities.

Hachiko belonged to Professor Ueno Saburo’s, who loved Hachi a lot. Hachi always went to see the master off and wait for his return at the Shibuya station everyday even in terrible weather. After the Professor's death, Hachi continued to wait at the station for his master's return.
