Fingers Almost Severed!

Fingers Almost Severed!

Not mine lar, I hope the title didn’t scare you 😀  It’s the butcher / veggie seller whom I normally patronize in the morning.  This morning at the market-on-van, I overhead the butcher’s wife telling all the ‘see lais’ (housewives) that her hubby was at […]

Restless Because Of Constipation

Restless Because Of Constipation

Despite taking psyllium husk and Duphalac (laxative) everyday, Baby still has constipation, though not as bad as without these laxatives. Yesterday, she did not move her bowels. Each time she does not move her bowels for a day, she will be restless the entire night. […]

Bad Morning

Bad Morning

Last night, I had planned to wake up at 5am to complete my never-ending pile of home. I got up at 5:30am today feeling fresh and raring to quickly complete some of the work, including a write-up on rv for sale BUT as usual, my plan is always thwarted. Baby also woke up at 5:30am and I could not do anything with her pestering me for my boops!! Check out my other blog to find out what happened to Baby later in the morning. It’s a nightmare every mother fears and it came alive for me!

Don’t Overeat Bananas

Don’t Overeat Bananas

Baby is no fruit lover. It is quite a torture – for her and for me when fruits are served to her. Thankfully she likes bananas. She loves them so much that she can chomp down 2 pieces of large bananas in one sitting. She […]

My Chronic Back Pain Is Gone!

My Chronic Back Pain Is Gone!

And my hubs saved me using his battery operated OTO Hans acu-points and nerve stimulator! He has been using this equipment to rid all the aches and pains from his body suffered during his basketball matches. I was quite apprehensive of using it at first.  […]

Green Shopping

Green Shopping

Did you ever realize that when you do your shopping online, you actually consume less energy and this reduces carbon dioxide emissions by as much as 35 percent compared to shopping at traditional retail stores? Ever since Baby #3 came along, I have not had much time to do things that I used to love, much less go shopping at shopping malls. I have been doing a lot of green shopping via the internet and am now hooked on it!

The Worst Backache Ever For Me!

The Worst Backache Ever For Me!

I had a terribly painful and uncomfortable time sleeping throughout the night yesterday. I woke up at about 4am with severe pain on my back. I could hardly lie flat on my back and had a painful time trying to move my body. Each time […]

Terribly Bad Back Pain

Terribly Bad Back Pain

I returned from my short break in Ipoh and Penang yesterday. And end up with a badly twisted upper back. I must have sprained it while bathing Baby. Baby fussed and refused to have her hair washed while standing or sitting. She wanted me to […]

Hot Compress To Prevent Eye Chalazion

Hot Compress To Prevent Eye Chalazion

After applying hot compress on Baby’s swollen left eye for more than a week, the swelling had subsided.  The ophthalmologist had advised us that I should apply hot compress on both Baby’s eyes to prevent occurrence of eye chalazion as she has a high tendency of getting this eye condition.  All I did was to soak a clean hanky with hot water during bath time and apply it on Baby’s eyes twice a day, 2 minutes each time.  I guess I have to incorporate this tedious regimen into Baby’s bath time for the next few years, sigh!

Food Binging Trip

Food Binging Trip

Of all the Penang hawkers fare, my favorite is Guan’s Apong at Burmah Road! I ate them for 2 days straight. My 3 girls loved it too. I gobbled 4 pieces on day 1 and another 5 pieces on day 2. Even Baby chomped down […]
