Energy and Nutritious Drink

Hey folks

I recently got a list of energy powder list from a friend who has been feeding her vegetarian kids with it...and they are growing strong and healthy.

I have got all the ingredients(in powder form) and been drinking them diligently for the past two days...seems very effective at keeping my energy level up despite two very late nights doing some additional work.

The items are(if i can recall all..else i got to get the list n post it up again later)
  • white sesame powder
  • black sesame powder
  • raw oats(powder form)
  • seaweed/kelp powder
  • soya lecithin
  • wheat germ
  • brewer yeast
  • brown sugar/fruit sugar
  • flaxseed (powder form)

Make it in lukewarm water. lDrink once a day.

I am letting my kids taking it now ;) Let's see how's their progress ;)

Note: The total amount I spent getting all the ingredients above is roughly bMYR60-70 (depends which organic shop I go to get the stuff. I estimate the items can last me(family of four) for one-two months depends how diligent we are taking it ;)

ATTENTION: Please although these are all organic and natural ingredients, but if you have any special health condition like allergy, please consult your physician before trying. I am sharing out of my own experience, it might not be the same for everyone. :)

For me I take more than once a day since I am still BF. See the picture is the stock I have in office :)

Things I brought along to visit a Just-Delivered Mommy

After giving birth twice via c-section, I learnt the things that mommies would treasured or needed most during hospital stay and during confinement.

Here are the items I quickly grab from my existing stock plus along my way(from Tesco as they opened at 8am at my place) to the O&G Pantai Medical Centre to visit my buddy,Charl.

Good for making noodles soup during confinement.
High in calcium, iron
Very good for wound recovery. It can be used to replace the old folks chinese remedies of using fish soup for wound recovery.
Easy to cook just drop into the hot boiling soup and voila
Japanese and Koreans eats this a lot..especially adding into their miso soup(yummy)

Organic Soya Powder(added with DHA from seaweed)
Perfect for mommies during confinement who BF as they needs lotsa fluid replacement plus nutrients

Soya Noodles
This is just something I brought along to pass to my UK buddy,Charl who is fond of Asian food but not sure if she knows where to get one

Rich chocolate cookies
Something convenient to snack on during hospital stay and confinement. In individual pack.
Confinement is the only time(for me) I can snack on biscuits and cookies without worrying about getting heaty(LOL)

What are the things you would bring along for your friend who has just delivered? Or what are the things you hoped to receive during your hospital stay after labor and during confinement? Although flowers are lovely...but it can be eaten :P(so unromantic LOL)?

Care to share? Me love learning the PERFECT GIFT...(have you checked out my maiden giveaway at my site here? It ends on 15 Nov, so do join and give your thoughts ok!)

Budget 2010

Hi folks,

Have you run through the new Budget 2010(for Malaysians)?

So after the announcement(refer TheStar) by government, what would your "drastic" action be?

Will you:
1. Terminate the other credit cards...hmm...RM50 charge to be imposed(per card) annually starting from Jan 1, 2010.
2. Increase or buy more insurance? Since they raise it to RM7K
3. Buy another computer?

Honestly I haven't study it clearly just hear it from the radio, news, newspaper and of course from the words of mouth.

But I think I will terminate my the other unused credit card. Previously used it for installment for new house furniture.

And I think DH is looking into the pc budget.

The only hurray I see it now is the broadband allowance of RM500..a good one so far..the rest..not sure how useful/helpful it is to reach 1Malaysia Goal!

Honestly, my only hope is a better and cleaner government who really cares and think for the welfare of the rakyat (Malaysians)'s future.

One who is prudent yet with foresight. Not one who mindlessly spent our hard-earned money unnecessarily.

See this news about how the money allocated for education is used in such pathetic way:

RM42,320 for a laptop

And more on how public funds(from rakyat's pocket are used):

Buck up on public funds management, Penang urged

Meetings planned with ministries and agencies to check excess spending

If our hard-earned money is used effectively in improving childcare, affordable medical facilities, world-class education at least taxpayers are happy to pay their tax yearly.

I sure hope the government would really LOOK INTO these matter seriously...harmony amongst different races is still not as huge issue as the common misused of public funds as public here unites all races! I think all races would look forward to having a clean and effective government.

Without that, everyone suffers.

Maybe they should let more women sit on their purchase and budgeting committee since women are known to be good at this! At least we certainly will not spent RM42,320 for a laptop and RM810 to RM1,050 per swivel chair!!!

Sigh..allrite for such down posting...let's pray and hope for the BEST to come for 1Malaysia's goal!
