Me: Hi, I'd like a seat in the non-smoking area, please.
Waitress: Sorry, we have no non-smoking area. But don't worry, it's all air-conditioned.
Me: You don't have the non-smoking area? Why?
Waitress: Well, the BBQ cooking generates quite a smoke already. So it won't look worse with additional smoke from the cigarettes.
You've gotta be kidding me! What kind of logic is that?

As such, she fell and hit her head. A part of her forehead was swollen.
And when we called our family, the single advice that everyone gave us was:
Rub oil on it, and then rub a knife on it.
This was totally the way we were brought up. I remember seeing an adult rubbing the swollen part of a child's head with knife. It works too!
But it makes me wonder... Why does it work? Do we still have to do that nowadays?

Now I am in Indonesia, where gas stove is the norm. Electric stove is expensive. And of course, the sales people are saying "Using electric stove is safer. No risk of fire."
There is always another side to a point of view. ^_^
