Cass went for her third electromagnetic acupuncture session yesterday. Again, I have to say that she has been a very brave girl with high tolerance to pain. Well, I think she definitely has a higher pain threshold than me. This makes me love her even […]

After learning the Ukulele for three months, Alycia can finally ‘graduate’ to the guitar, YAY!! For the past few lessons, the guitar teacher has been teaching her how to strum melody of pop songs. Next week, the guitar teacher will be bringing a guitar for […]
I think it does work! It has been a week since I started taking Gingko Biloba, in the hope of getting better blood flow in my body.
The outcome? Less severe hand numbness and tingling in the morning. Though I can still feel the tingling sensation in my hand, it is however not completely numb with pins and needles like it used to be. I also do not get that partial blackout when I get up from a squatting position.
I shall continue to pop the Gingko supplement everyday and I hope to get a totally numb-free hands soon.
One week of the school holidays has past us by. One down, another 5 weeks to go! The kids are starting to get bored at home and our real holiday only begins in 3 weeks, with our trip to Singapore. This morning, I brought Sherilyn and Cass to the park. It has been yonks since I last brought them to the park. Lately, I have been slacking in my exercise regimen. There are the good side and bad side to the school holidays. The good side is I get to catch up on my beauty sleep by sleeping in for another 1.5 hours every morning. The bad side is that when I wake up slightly late, I tend to skip my morning jog. Last night, I told myself that I had to bring the kids to the park to move their butt and joints and to get a healthy dose of Vitamin D from the sunlight. Lazy bum Alycia preferred the bed over exercise this morning, so I left her home alone and had a great time with the other 2 rascals. After running 3 big rounds in the park, we went to a nearby coffee shop to have breakfast. When I came home, Alycia was spring cleaning the house. Yesterday I told the girls that they have to get rid of the pile of rubbish at one corner of the living room. The lazy bum wasn’t a lazy bum after all. She helped to kick-start the spring cleaning act and then Sherilyn picked up from there. While they cleared the living room, I got some work done on the computer and managed to check out some ecommerce workflow websites that the hubs asked me to check for him.
My kitchen is often closed on Saturdays and Sundays. Today is no exception. As it was still raining in the evening, rendering it very troublesome to drive out to a nearby restaurant or coffee shop for dinner, we went to the Japanese restaurant at our […]
This is my grilled chicken dish with fresh pineapple.
Rating from my 3 fastidious foodies was A++
It was pretty simple to dish out. I used whatever available sauces that I could find in my fridge to marinate the chicken in the morning and 8 hours later, grilled it for about 25 minutes (uncovered) in the oven. The fresh pineapple chunks effused such natural sweetness and aroma into the meat that the dish tasted very much like a restaurant dish. We all loved this dish and it is all natural without any MSG or added sugar (except for sugar from the Lea & Perrin sauce). You can use whatever spices that you can find in your kitchen. I used mixed herbs and oregano. You can use rosemary, parsley, turmeric, basil or whatever herbs and spices that you can get from the supermarket or your garden. I also used some oil to marinate and tenderize the meat. Remember to grease the aluminum foil on the baking tray with some oil so that the chicken skin and meat will not stick to the foil.
Do give this dish a try if you want to dish out something tasty in a jiffy. While the dish is cooking in the oven, you can blanch a veggie and wash the dishes. And you can cook it without any oil splatter 🙂
