Detox Your Yourself Today

Everyone needs a detox treatment regularly to rid the toxins from our body. We are what we eat and many of us eat too much meat, processed food, fast food and junk food. If you feel sluggish all the time, feel bloated, have constipation, have […]

Cycle To The Office?

Cycle To The Office?

Last week, the hubs bought a bicycle. He told me that he will leave the car behind so that I can use it while he will cycle to work as his office is just 2 minutes away from where we stay, LOL! I’ll see if […]

Very Heavy Menstruation

Very Heavy Menstruation

My first menstruation after 27 months has been tremendously heavy, though no pain at all. I have always had heavy periods. But this time, it is exceptionally heavy. It’s so heavy that I have to change my pad every hourly. Last night I stained the bed badly. Fortunately there’s a plastic sheet underneath the bedsheet and the blood was prevented from seeping into the mattress. I had expected this first menses after 27 months of ‘drought’ to be really heavy. It’s like a heavy downpour after going through a period of drought! I weighed myself this morning and was surprised to see that I am now 1.5kg lighter! WOW, I can’t believe the blood that I had lost is 1.5kg heavy!!

Magnolia Yoghurt Petite Low Fat Ice Cream With Yoghurt

Magnolia Yoghurt Petite Low Fat Ice Cream With Yoghurt

I got a pack of Magnolia Yoghurt Petite Low Fat Ice Cream With Yoghurt to try from a nearby super mart and I must say that they are really tasty — not too sweet and I think it is a healthier alternative to regular ice-creams.  They are made from real strawberry juice, strawberry puree and mango puree. I think they taste very natural. My kids love them!  Baby who is an ice-cream fanatic can chomp down the  entire stick of ice cream herself!

Charcoal Bamboo Swiss Roll Cake

Charcoal Bamboo Swiss Roll Cake

My hubs bought a loaf of charcoal bamboo swiss roll cake from our favorite bakery the other day.  It didn’t really look appealing because of the blackish/grayish color of the cake but it tasted good!  Some ingredients used made the texture of the cake a […]

Garment With Built-In Physiotherapy!

Garment With Built-In Physiotherapy!

My youngest daughter could not recognize her daddy when we showed her a picture I took with him 20 years ago. I guess that’s because in the picture, his huge belly was missing and his face shape was very much sharper.  When I was dating […]

Red Bean Ice Cubes

Red Bean Ice Cubes

I bought some red bean tong sui for breakfast the other day and could not finish it. When Alycia saw the bowl of red bean tong sui sitting in the kitchen, she quietly took out the empty ice moulds from the freezer and then poured the red bean tong sui into the moulds.    After dinner that night, she was very excited and quickly checked the freezer to see how her red bean ice cubes had turned out.   She then proudly served everyone with her homemade red bean ice cubes for dessert after dinner!  And it’s way healthier than eating fattening ice creams right?
