For many people, they would try to flee if their mil were to live under the same roof with them. For me, I think it is a blessing for the mil to live with us as there are more pros than cons. Yep it is never easy to live with someone harmoniously but if both parties give and take, friction will sizzle eventually. When the mil is around, I need not have to worry anymore about sweating it out in the hot kitchen to dish out tasty food for the fussy eaters in the house. All meals will be taken care of by her. Thankfully cooking and baking are her passion and she takes great pride in them to whip up only wholesome and healthy makes and bakes for us.
This is just one of the mil’s homecooked dinner, 2 nights ago…
Oven roasted chicken drumnets, steamed cod fish, blanched coconut flower veggie, an assortment of vegetables with prawns stir-fried, steamed waxed meat, steamed chicken and Basmathi rice. There was also a pot of lotus roots soup. Such tummy and heart warming dishes for dinner! The girls will veto a restaurant dinner and vote for her homecooked dinner, anytime!
I bought Sherilyn an expensive pair of Barbie ballerina flats for Christmas last year. The shoes is a tad big for her feet. To make the shoes tighter, I inserted some scrunched up papers from some new shoes into her shoes, lol! But this rascal is now complaining that the shoes are making her feet very uncomfortable and she does not like wearing them. I think I should get her a pair of superfeet insoles for a tighter fitting as well as for a more comfy wear. Else, I’m afraid that the expensive pair of shoes will be left sitting in the shoes rack until we forget all about it.

Cord blood stem cells have been a vital component of advanced biomedicine because […]
The other day, hubs bought a box of pasteurized eggs from the supermarket just to find out how they taste like. Pasteurized eggs are kept in a special refrigerator just for the pasteurized eggs. And pasteurized eggs are almost double the cost of regular eggs.
The only difference that I notice about pasteurized eggs is that the coating of egg shell has a layer of oil, which is mineral oil to protect the egg inside the shell from bacteria. If you give me 2 bowls — 1 bowl with unpasteurized eggs and another bowl with pasteurized eggs, I won’t be able to tell the difference in the taste, honestly.
In my opinion, unless you have a weak immune system or are willing to spend on pasteurized eggs, then stick to regular DHA eggs or antibiotics-free eggs or free-range chicken eggs. I still prefer the white-shell free-range chicken eggs.
The main benefit of pasteurization is that it kills salmonella bacteria, a disease that sickens a reported 42,000 Americans, although the actual number could be as much as 29 times higher, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This is the reason the U.S. Department of Agriculture requires manufacturers to pasteurize all eggs used in processed foods. Refrigerate pasteurized eggs after purchasing, just as you would unpasteurized eggs. Refrigeration slows any bacterial growth that might still be present.
