Nice setting and environment
After 12 hours, getting into Day 2: Screening Practices
The participants were exposed to various screening counters using marketplace method. All of us were taught the correct technique to use peak flow meter, CO tester, conduct Fagestrom Test, and learn the principle of SidePak.
Hopefully...We could help more people to lead a healthy life with our equipped knowledge...
Peak flow meter. Blow, Forrest, blow.
CO tester to see CO concentration in your
bloodstream. Higher CO level indicates that you inhale
more smoke
SidePak. Help inspect the indoor
air quality
En. Salehin explained us how to use SidePak.
Highlight of the day: Adventure begins.
Each group would go around USM campus to approach smokers...
Action 1: Provide them advice and info and encourage them to quit smoking.
Action 2: Distribute out our leaflets to them. Let them know the help available including quit smoking clinics and smoking cessation hotline.
Action 3: Collect cigarettes from them to show that they are READY to quit smoking.
Greenlungers talking to a senior at medan selera
Some interesting dialogues quoted from the public:

  • "I know smoking harms. But now I'm okay. I'll stop only when my body is not okay."
  • "Secondhand smoke is harmful, I know. That's why I choose to harm others rather than my own children."
  • "Uncle, can you donate a cigarette to us to show your determination to quit smoking?" "You ask my tauke first."

Here's a poll to find out the place you prefer to have Freeze!

If the responses are good, we'll be loving to have another more exciting Freeze! in larger scale perhaps outside USM! (Yeah!!!!)


Here's some photos of USM Freeze! to quench your thirst...while I'm still looking for some experts to edit the videos (anyone can offer help? they're in .MTS format...What kinda format is that O.O)

Let the pictures tell you the story


Briefing to the agents
The agents were anticipating the moment
More agents queued up waiting for the moment
It's time. Let's move!
Walking to the spot
Agents were dispersed around the spot
View of the spot
More agent swam into the pool
Get yourself in position
Media was waiting for the moment to happen
USM Freeze!
What a huge impact seeing 150 people froze at the same time


Some close-ups
Some posers. They looked unprepared. Hehe
4 minutes holding that was not easy. Haha


The girl was smart leaning against the pile


These girls were even smart. Sitting. =.=
Awesome pic showing the moving background
More agents on the other side. Here seemed more prepared.
This looked unnatural, didn't he? Haha
Walking lady gave the contrast
