Happy World Breastfeeding Week and 5Cs of Breastfeeding!

Hi folks!

It's World Breastfeeding Week! 

Big kudos to all mommies (and daddies) and singles out there who are practicing, supporting or even celebrating the benefits of breastfeeding to our next generation!

Breastfeeding my three children has brought me a lot of good memories, wonderful lessons as well as building and deepening my relationship with my children, my husband as well as other breastfeeding mommies friends alike. 

We speak the same language: EBM, BF, letdown reflex etc.

We rejoice at seeing the "half-drunk", satisfying grin of our baby after their feed.

We cheer each other up when we faced criticism, challenges or moment when milk supply went down.

We shared jokes, stories, tales and worries at the nursing room during our private milk-expressing session.

The synergy and constant sharing, encouragement as well as motivation is something we shared and continue to build on after our breastfeeding journey ended. 

The perseverance, discipline, effort paid off and becomes part of our life-lessons and motivation in our future adventures!

How has your breastfeeding journey go? Hope you will enjoy your precious journey and experience of this lifetime!





Picture taken in 2009 and I was wearing a CNY-themed breastfeeding blouse from Fabulousmom and i am still wearing this blouse while breastfeeding my 3rd child back in 2015 and even now as it's simply a very comfy and versatile attire for me! 

Breastfeeding can be chic, comfy, challenging, cool and cost-saving too!

Cheers and Happy Breastfeeding Week to all!

Rainy day and cough


Hi folks!

My youngest is down with phlegmy cough last week which I suspect is too much of dairy, i.e. chocolates..he often start coughing when he had too much of vegetarian cheese slices, chocolates and even milo!!! Those are his older siblings favourite but it's not something he could tolerate since young!

I applied Frankinsence(good for phlegmy cough) on his back and chest, Eucalyptus Radiata on his sole, Idaho Balsam Fir on his spine...his phlegm is under control but still having dry cough.



Then my friend happened to ask me the benefit of Dorado Azul as this is the free oil(retail price MYR217.10) of the month from Young Living when you purchased up to 250PV and his son is having cough as well...I suddenly recalled this bottle which I have used last round. Many times I found even though I have all the relevant oils at the back of my mind and hand for all sorts of ailments(the gift of having 3 lovely kids ❤️), I am always thankful when the universe would just send someone to remind or inspires me on what oils to try! Pretty miracle and awesome!


And my son slept thru' the night yesterday..not much coughing 🙏👍 I will continue to apply for him and hopefully he will all well again. Thanks to my friend once again to bring up question about this oil! May his son gets better soon too!

Folks, so take extra care during this hot and wet days..especially on the respiratory system. Oh yeah, I applied diluted Digize (always) whenever my kids are down with cough or flu(yes!! Even when it's not tummyache per say)..cos gut is the source of their immune blocks...and a TCM physician once share with me to nourish a child's gut is so important especially after he has taken any antibiotics which makes his gut health go all haywire!

So another tips for us to know! Don't just apply oils for respiratory, remember to apply some tummy oils like Digize too!


Now are you interested to get this bottle of free oil too? Or, you need someone to explain how to use essential oils for your family. I love to share lotsa real-life stories and ways you can easily incorporate essential oils and chemical-free stuff into your home.

Alternatively, you can also easily sign up as member and enjoy the oils at wholesale price here. It's very simple with technology these days. Another good news, they are giving 50% shipping charges tis month for those who are in Malaysia and are ordering online from Aug 1- 15 this month!

A ritual with all 3 kids

Hi folks!

Last Sat, I was away attending the Young Living Beauty School event with my gf...and a comb of bananas was left untouched at home.

So, on Sun, as a ritual with the two older ones, i decided to bake banana muffin infused Young Living lemon essential oil.

The verdict: it may not look very pro or good, but it taste really yummy..the muffin were snapped up fast before I could take a decent photo 😄

How has your weekend been? Hope it has been fun-filled and fruitful too 👍

Discovery and mini culinary adventures

Hi folks!

I am not sure which stall started it, after I seen one of the vegetables stalls started selling bundles of vegetables at 3 bundles for MYR5, there are a lot of other stalls have started having that offer too. And usually it's the usual varieties. One day I stumbled upon this unusual vegetables(to me at least!) called Bentong Seaweed. Sounds very yummy and healthy to me. So off I went buying a bundle along with two other vegetables that my family loved like French beans and lettuce.

I asked the seller how should I prepare this vegetables, and she said just stir-fry it. I am feeling adventurous and in need of some comfort hot soup so I though to try it out with some noodles soup. Amazingly yummy when added with slices of ginger and vegetarian anchovies/mushroom stalk slices. Awesomely yummy I must say!

Love to explore more of these many types of vegetables that I have yet to try ..and looks very nutritious too!

Rushy Day and Uncooperative toddler...what to do?




Hi folks!

Being a full-time working mom of 3 school-going children, it can gets rather challenging especially when you have a rather defiant toddler fighting with his equally defiant brother. My morning can be a warzone or a deaf-mode depending which mode I chose.

Often, i would get a melt-down toddler who refused to walk on his own when his wants are not met. What's more challenging is we are often running late...multiply the stress by many times...

Sometimes i get impatient and mad, at times i just try to mellow down and negotiate or speak to my beloved toddler nicely. Previously, when i find myself raging or getting mad, i can feel the pain in my heart. I don't get that of late. Not sure if using ylang ylang essential oil daily on my wrist and back of my neck daily has anything to do with it.

After getting a short haircut, my hair gets bit messy in the morning, so i checked and found out that cedarwood and ylang ylang essential oil helps to manage this dry and untidy mane. So i have been diligently applying these two oils every morning. It seems to calm my morning rush beside calming my "hair".

So, mommies out there, who often have power struggle with your children, i strongly recommend that you apply some ylang ylang essential oils as a layer of protection for your heart health. Also, it really acts well as our natural perfume too!

Am loving this new routine of mine while trying to have a more peaceful morning routine with my two bubbly boys.

Cheers to a calmer morning folks! Love to get any tips and tricks from y'all!

Note: If you like to know where to get the ylang ylang and cedarwood essential oils i am using, feel free to give me a message. Alternatively, you can also easily check out here how you could get those handy oils at wholesale price. It's just so simple to use!
