Taken from MSN Careers:
20 Highest-Paying Careers
If you want to make several million dollars for a few months' work, then, yes, you probably should star in a Hollywood blockbuster. But if you're looking for careers to lead you to financial success, remember to put everything into perspective.
You will rarely find a physician making as much money as George Clooney, but remember that he's one of only a few celebrity actors. The majority of actors aren't recognizable faces and they surely are not earning seven figures. The odds of being a famous athlete or CEO are just as slim.
If money's what you're after, then set your sights on more realistic goals by looking at the everyday occupations around you. The 20 highest-paying jobs in the U.S. are within your grasp. That's not to say they're easily attained -- they all require hard work and years of experience, and most of them require extensive education. Still, your odds of becoming a physicist are probably better than becoming quarterback for the New England Patriots.
Hopefully your name's at the top of the draft picks next season. Until then, look over this list of the 20 highest-paying jobs, according to CBSalary.com, and their projected employment in 2016. The education and experience for each of these jobs vary.

One of them was a teenage at his early 20.
He noticed that he started losing more of his hairs as days passed, and after a week of observing the symptoms, he came to me, and that goes for a lot of people out there, whether men or women both have the same problem.
The most common hair loss problem is the alopecia androgenetica, which is the Male Pattern Baldness.
Be it from heredecy or not, you'll start losing your hair for an unknown reason.
As for the pattern of the hair loss, it'll usually go like this:
The event happened due to Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) (Full name: 5α-Dihydrotestosterone, abbreviating to 5α-DHT. This DHT is the main cause for the Male Pattern Baldness.
Recovering from the Male Pattern Baldness is not entirely impossible, but requires a long-term treatment, and a very careful advise from your physician.
For a modern-based treatment, there are 2 common prescribed drugs with a difference treatment method:
Regaine (Minoxidil) - In short, Minoxidil stimulates the cells and promotes hair regrowth. If taken orally, it might promotes hair growth on every part of the body. Thus topical solution is often recommended.
Propecia (Finasteride) - Finasteride directly reduces DHT, which is the main cause of Male Pattern Baldness.
It's generally up to the patient and the physician to decide which method of treatment is best, please contact your nearest doctor for further information. :)

Cheers and wish you the best. :)

This one's a specially from Phloy for me.
On the day of the Valentine, Youya told me of the meaning of the different rose colors.
It's a bit different from the one I rad on another website, such as Blue Rose, which means of mysteriously in love, Yellow Rose, representing a Smart Love, White Rose resembling an innocent love and Red which represents Passion.
My favorite Rose color would go for Black, in which is said to resembles "Love till death" or "Eternal Love."
Somehow, the meaning of black rose sent a chill to my spine, how nice.
Most be beautiful when they blooms,
But inevitably wither in time,
Which thrust deeper than knife.

14th Feb is also called as the Virgin's Day, since most girls give their virginity up on this day. For those who knows what they're doing, it's totally alright, but for the other half, who ends up getting pregnant at the age of 13 or 14, should think thrice before committing and giving into boy's lust, it does nothing good to give in at such an early age.
I'm posting this in a hurry because I'm going out :)
Happy Valentine's Day all guys and girls, I hope you enjoys your day!!

Since I'm in a working age already, it's almost impossible not to reminisce back.
My Memories are 110 Million Music Video - Female Vocalist
My Memories are 110 Million Music Video - Pure fan version
It's a faded memory,
And living each day as if being chased by something.
Even if I look back to the past,
Where are those guys now,
What are they doing?
The answer is still unclear.
Memories that we've forgotten as we grew up,
But now I've forgotten it,
And living each day as if being chased by something.
Now I look back to those times,
Unaware of unpure things,
The seasons that have passed were dramatic.

I'm not in the US, but can our readers from the United States tells me whether this is true?
Orion Telescopes tells us that the US Flag on the moon are made in China..
(I hate to rip off my private life here, so enjoy while I do.)
To celebrate the clearance of the ทพ. 1 (Tor Phor 1) in use for the commercial registration of the Oriental Pharma.
For a few times, it's either Kiss Channel or Ice Bar together with the old group.
Though most of the time for those who knows better, I'd be at สุธีร์คอร์ท (Suthi Court, Hat Yai) for some drinks. (minus liquors)
I dont drink and that doesnt upset me at all!!
If my face isnt red, proves that you can enjoy even without drinking any alcohols.
It's not a normal party when all of the participants are freshmen Bachelor Geeks from the medical areas.
It wouldnt be a very special night if Emmy and Nat doesnt perform a 'special event.'
Some of us were able to take the special shot.
Drunk or not, they do remember what happened.
Care to switch place? Better dont start hoping, they're taken.
It'll take quite a while again before I'll go clubbing again, getting back home early at 11.30pm wasnt all that fun, but just witnessing the kissing is enough to make my day.
Back to work at 7am tomorrow as usual, cant wait till everything is set!!

MSN writer wrote this up, and I agrees with some of it, such as how much time Facebook takes on your everyday life.
Why I'm quitting Facebook!
--- On Facebook's fifth anniversary, a not-so-fond farewell.
Tradition calls, for a dinner every year at the day of the Chinese New Year with all of the pharmacy's boss and colleagues.
It's the same Lee Garden that we visited every year, this is my 3rd year.
Was a peaceful dinner, might be the last year, but this dinner wont be the last of it :) Enjoy Lunar New Year guys.
Sunday, February 1, 2009
Yes, every year, the main celebration area would be in the Lee Garden.
It's quite the same every year, except with a little new things every now and then.
Even with the economy meltdown, Hat Yai was still flooded with tourists from various part of the world.
Talk about foods.. The area is crowded and full of foods. As usual, Lynn will head straight to the stall and orders a few stuff before we continue the journey.
Haha, one thing is nice, is to have your friend's picture being taken by random people.
I sense the nervous smile though. Haha.
There are a lot other pictures of which I cant post due to privacy, but I do hope you all enjoy the sight of Hat Yai during the Chinese New Year.
