The after shock – fever and diarrhoea

It has since been 40 hours since Ethan’s terrible fall. He was playing with the powder container when it fell and powder spilled on the floor. Before Darling or myself managed to clean that up, Ethan ran to it. Walking on the powder caused him to fall and landed right smack on the back of his head. We’ve rushed him to the ER as in my previous post. Last night, he vomited again. This time […]

Early morning rush to the hospital’s ER

It was 4am and Ethan woke up, vomiting. Darling and I immediately rush him to the ER. Why? Because the previous evening, Ethan had a bad fall. He was walking when he slipped, fell and landed right on the back of his head. Though nothing much happened then, now that he is vomiting, it is time for me to panic. The doctor checked Ethan’s reflexes, eyes and ears. No sign of bleeding in his ears, […]

Good and Bad luck during Chinese New Year

Here is a fun excerpt on what’s good and what’s bad during CNY I got from wikipedia. (And my own 2 cents worth in the brackets) GOOD LUCK* Opening windows and doors are considered to bring in the good luck of the New Year.(it is also an entrance for thieves if not monitored closely!) * Switching on the lights for the night is considered good luck to “scare away” ghosts and spirits of misfortune that […]

The waiting is killing me…

I must be one of the last few people on Earth who are still using dial-up to access the Internet. Previously when I was still working, I do most of what I needed to do online at work, I’d like to say during break-time but err, let’s be honest and say I’d go online to do personal stuffs when I had the free-time kay? (Hope my former employer is not reading this post! :P) And […]

CNY @ The Curve

This post is back dated about a week. The reason? I got bored after visiting the Curve. I mean, after their spectacular job for Christmas, their CNY decor seems to be a little bit disappointing. I let you be the judge by looking at the picture here and tell me if you feel the same… Nothing much to shop or do at the Curve until the little rascal spotted ECHOpark. He was so amused by […]

Lazy Sunday

Last Sunday I decided to do some last minute house cleaning for the coming CNY. So Darling had to look after the little rascal. While I was busy cleaning upstairs, I can hear them noisily playing football and laughing downstairs. After some time, I noticed that it was extremely quiet with only the TV on. I took a peep and this is what I saw… Darling deep in slumber land while the little rascal not […]

Better than men

German women better at assembling IKEA furniture? That was what I read in the papers yesterday. According to the head of the German division of the home products retailer, IKEA, says the company’s male customers have a bad track record compared to its female clients when it comes to putting furniture together. “Men never look at the instruction leaflet and have the most problems when assembling our furniture because they think they can do it […]

My Golden ‘PIG’

When I was pregnant, my mum went for a holiday trip to Beijing with several of my aunts. There she bought a nice Chinese toddler suit. Even though at that time we did not know yet if I was carrying a baby boy or girl, she took a wild guess and bought it for luck. I loved it the instant I saw it. And then, sure enough, Ethan the baby boy was born, in the […]

CNY in 1 Utama

No… I’m not going mall-decor hunting again for this coming CNY.. Only do that during Christmas every year. But so happen I was in 1 Utama shopping last Saturday, so what the heck. Couldn’t resist taking the decor pic to post it here. Nothing much to shout about except their plentiful ‘flame of prosperity’ or was it “flame of life”? I really do not know what the ‘flame’ meant. Was never good in the hidden […]

Scrambled Egg with Salmon and Cod Fish Combo

I like to create something new from the old. Be it my dressing, furnishing, art work, anything… Today, I’ve decided to create a combo out of the boring ol‘ scramble egg. The ingredients I used are the same ol‘ same ol‘ – eggs, onion, salt n pepper and some sesame oil. The only difference is, I added in some cut salmon and cod fish. I marinated the fish with some sesame oil and oyster sauce […]

Another topless pictures of a celebrity on the net

The pictures, taken by a Los Angeles-based paparazzi agency, showed the blockbuster star taking off her red bikini and lying face down with her butts exposed. Obviously the star expressed her resentment over the incident. She was enraged. The couple were unaware of the paparazzi and were shown in the photos caressing each other. Sources say […]

Rechargeable battery

A rechargeable battery, also known as a storage battery, is a group of two or more secondary cells. These batteries can be restored to full charge by the application of electrical energy. In other words, they are electrochemical cells in which the electrochemical reaction that releases energy is readily reversible. Rechargeable batteries can offer economic and environmental benefits compared to disposable batteries. Some rechargeable battery types are available in the same sizes as disposable types. […]

Salmon gone to waste

Every week, when we do our grocery shopping, I’ll head for the vege section and Darling and Ethan will do the fish and chicken section. Last Saturday, I thought I heard Darling said that the chicken is not too fresh so he did not buy any. And stupidly I assume that he did not buy the salmon fillets as well. Do not know what makes me assume that. So when we got home, being tired […]

Home Grown Project

I love nature, plants and gardening. I wish for Ethan to love them as much as I do. To make him understand the circle of life of a plant, I started a home grown project with Ethan about two weeks ago. Our first project consists of growing spring onions and tomatoes. For the spring onions I get Ethan to place a red onion into the pot and help him cover it with soil. Two weeks […]

38. Fever.. what is it?

After experiencing so many ‘feverish’ episodes with Ethan, I decided to go to google for some help to understand more about fever. Here is what I think worth sharing.. In healthy kids, fevers usually don’t indicate anything serious. Although it can be frightening when your child’s temperature rises, fever itself causes no harm and can actually be a good thing — it’s often the body’s way of fighting off infections. And not all fevers need […]

37. Daddy + Mummy + Ethan = 1 Happy ‘Monkey’ Family

Ethan is still feverish. At times, his temperature went up to 39.1! Not only does Darling has to force him to take his oral medication, he also needs to insert the Voltaren Supp into Ethan’s rectum to bring down the temp ASAP. Luckily it is the weekend, so Darling is around to help out. That also means that we had to cancel all our plans and stay in the whole weekend. It was tough because […]

36. Boys will be boys

My little Ethan is not so little anymore. Well, he is still little in size, but not so little on attitude. He is going to be 17 months old this 21st. He is like a bolt of lightning at home, dashing here and there in the speed of light. With just a blink of an eye, he can be from Point A to Point B. Blink twice and he will be high on the staircase […]
