My hubs is a movie fanatic. He has tons of VCDs and DVDs at home. Each time he sees a man peddling VCDs and DVDs by the road, he will surely take a peep and end up buying a few. He has so many VCDs […]

DHA Enriched Organic Soya Milk For Cassandra

DHA Enriched Organic Soya Milk For Cassandra

When Baby had a slight cough with phlegm recently, I tried to stay her away from cow’s milk. I substituted cow’s milk with soy bean milk. When I was at Mid Valley Megamall, there was a booth just outside Wellness Pharmacy and Jusco supermarket promoting the range of Biogreen organic products. The salesgirl gave us most of the beverages to sample. Baby seemed to like all the beverages that she sampled and I couldn’t be happier. I thought that if she liked to drink such healthy beverages, I don’t have to spoon feed her milk anymore. I was wrong. Back home, when I gave her the soy bean milk mixed with Oatmilk, she did not show much interest and tried to feign puking!

I am really disappointed that Baby didn’t really like the soy bean milk and the oatmilk. I am trying to keep her free from cow’s milk and substitute it with soy bean milk and oatmilk. I think the soy bean milk and oatmilk from Biogreen taste pretty good but this Baby of mine does not really fancy soy bean milk or cow’s milk since birth. That’s one of the cons of a fully breastfed baby.

This organic soya milk powder has 7x DHA Gold.  The DHA is derived from seaweed.  Seaweed extract is the best plant source of DHA.  DHA is a type of fatty acid which is absorbed by brain cells and benefits our brain, nerves and visual cells.

This sugar-free Oatmilk Energy from Biogreen is made of Non GMO oats, buckwheat, soy lecithin, brown rice, black rice, red rice, pearl barley, amaranth, wheat, black bean and flax seeds.  This tastes really good too but too bad Baby doesn’t like it.

Ventolin For Cassandra

Ventolin For Cassandra

Ever since Baby was an infant, she never once took any oral meds to treat her cough or runny nose. That’s because since she was 7 weeks old, she had to take oral antibiotics everyday until she was 14 months old (that’s after the Ureteral […]

Do you still keep your old trophies?

Do you still keep your old trophies?

Do you keep the trophies that you won and collected during your days in school? I still have all my trophies in my parents’ house in my hometown. They have been sitting in the same old cupboard for over 20 years and hardly ever moved, except for the occasional cleaning. My mum is a good keeper of things. She keeps my brothers’ football trophies, taekwando trophies, athletic trophies and they are all over 3 decades old! Do you still keep your old trophies?

Career In Health Care

Career In Health Care

After experiencing so many hospital stays with Baby throughout the first 14 months of her life, my point of view on a career in nursing has changed dramatically. I think a career in the health care as well as a career in nursing are very noble and can bring about a lot of satisfaction. A good nurse and doctor can bring about so much difference to the patients and their loved ones during their period of difficulty. If you are considering a job in health care, do check out this health care job site.
