Pap Smear and Medical Check Up

Pap Smear and Medical Check Up

I have not had a pap smear and full medical check up for almost 4 years! I know you are probably raising both your eye brows now and shaking your head in disbelief.  How could this health freak mommy do this to herself!?  How could […]

Good Quality Branded Swimsuit

Good Quality Branded Swimsuit

It is so true when they say that if you buy a piece of good quality swimsuit, it can last you for many years. The hubs bought a very costly piece of swimsuit for Sherilyn when she was 4 years old but she only wore […]

Breakfast With The Kids

Breakfast With The Kids

I love holidays as I get to enjoy my breakfast with the girls.  If I am in the mood to cook, I will whip up some scrambled eggs and omelettes filled with cheeses and mushrooms.   If the MIL is around, she will whip up pancakes, fried eggs or some simple but delish sandwiches, like this one…

Homemade wholewheat flax seed bread with avocado spread, fried egg and pan fried Hormel’s spam meat.

I never buy spam meat or deli meat for the kids.  The mil would buy them once in a rare occasion and we will get to eat them like 5-6 times in a year.  Yes these meats are well known for all the bad reasons but if you eat them once in a purple moon and limit the portion  each time, I guess it is A-OK. Moderation is the key!

We also had some really soft and tasty black sesame buns that the MIL bought from an organic food expo at Mid Valley.

Mold-Infested Washing Machine

Mold-Infested Washing Machine

When our live-in helper left last year, I flipped when I opened the door of our washing machine. Having had a live-in helper for over 10 years, I hardly ever touched the washing machine. The first thing that greeted me when I opened the washing […]

Nature’s Habit Granola Trail Mix

Nature’s Habit Granola Trail Mix

Granola Trail Mix by Nature’s Habit – this is by far the yummiest and crunchiest granola I have tried and it’s gonna be for keeps for sure.  It also has generous amounts of almonds and pecans. I’ll definitely grab a few more packs the next time I shop at Cold Storage.

Albeit pretty costly at over RM12 for a small pack of 113gm (for about 3-4 servings) , I do not really mind spending a little more on healthy snacks.  This is still way healthier than a pack of carb and calorie laden nasi lemak, a bowl of noodles or some kuih muih, agree?

Attracter of Bugs

Attracter of Bugs

The other day, Cass woke up with insect bite marks all over her body and limbs. She was scratching like crazy when she woke up in the morning. Poor girl, I think she must have been bitten by some bugs. I applied some Melaleuca oil on her body and sprayed some demand cs insecticide on the mattress. I hope that this managed to get rid of those pesky bugs. Poor Cass, she seems to be attracting a lot of mozzies and bugs to give her love bites all over her body and she has been asking me why these insects just love to bite her!
