Remember I posted earlier that Baby’s other eye was swollen and the ophthalmologist said that one of the oil glands is blocked? He prescribed her with some eye drops but after more than 2 weeks, it still looks a tad swollen. I am worried that […]

How Often?

How Often?

Our bathroom and kitchen floor mats are washed everyday while our rugs are washed once every 2-3 days. Some of my friends commented that I wash them too frequently and I should only wash them once in a week. I think a week would be too long and the mats and rugs would be heavily coated with dirt and dust. With 3 young kids running in and out of the house bare footed, our mats and rugs are often stained black everyday. It would be too unhygienic to wash them once a week. How often do you wash your floor mats and rugs?

Looking Like A Walking Zombie

Looking Like A Walking Zombie

I have been looking like a walking zombie for the past few weeks. Not getting sufficient shut eye is paying a toll on my health and physical appearance. I feel sleepy all the time and just 2 days ago, my eyes felt really tired, heavy and droopy. Not to mention I also have dark circles under eyes and I have been applying face mask on my face to nourish it, less it gets wrinkled fast.

Too Much Work And Too Little Time

Too Much Work And Too Little Time

Though I only slept at 12:30am last night, I was already wide awake at 5am this morning. There are just too many things on my mind, too much work for me to settle with too little time on hand. I have orders from several customers […]
