I've got this article in I,Malaysian! blog. This is something that i've never expected and makes my mouth open. Suprising!!!
According to a survey, Malaysian smokers smoke 20 millions of cigarettes a day. This also indicates that Malaysian smokers burnt away 8 million of Ringgit Malaysia in a day! What a surprising figure shown!
The estimation shows that Malaysian smokers could reach at least 3.5 millions, and more than a half smokers smoke at least 10 cigarettes a day. If a cigarette costs 40 cents, RM8 millions have burnt away!
Smokers in Malaysia country make up 13% of the total Malaysian. According to the health department, 85% of the smokers started to smoke before 25 years old. Man starts to smoke at 18.7 years old in average and woman starts to smoke at 23 years old.
The ratio can be interpreted as among 10 smokers, there has a female smoker. Furthermore, Chinese female smokers in Malaysia are increasing.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is the fifth fantasy adventure film in the popular Harry Potter film series, based on the novel by J. K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. The director is David Yates. The screenwriter is Michael Goldenberg, who replaced Steve Kloves, writer of the first four films. Warner Bros., the distributor of the film, has scheduled a UK release date of July 12, 2007, and a US release date of July 11, 2007, both in conventional theatres and IMAX theatres. Live action filming finished around the end of November or beginning of December 2006, and post-production on the film is now complete as well.
Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger enter their fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The wizarding community has shunned Harry and Albus Dumbledore, head of Hogwarts, who claim that Lord Voldemort has, after 14 years, regained a body and been restored to full power, and are instead influenced by the propaganda of The Daily Prophet and the intentional ignorance of the Minister of Magic Cornelius Fudge. Fudge appoints a new Hogwarts Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, Dolores Umbridge, who begins to steadily take over Hogwarts through the support of the Ministry. Harry, Ron and Hermione immediately dislike Umbridge, because she refuses to allow them to discuss the return of Voldemort, and because she teaches them inadequate practical lessons. Thus, "Dumbledore's Army" is founded, as an underground organization with Harry as teacher to prepare twenty-seven of his schoolmates in case of a battle with Voldemort, which helps when Voldemort attacks Harry and his friends at the Ministry of Magic.
So, Don't Miss It!!!
