Never drive when you are "drugged"

Hi folks,
I am getting better today, my gum is not so painful now (keep finger crossed...hope it remains painless throughout the day and nite). Somehow the pain is more intense during the nite which I am not sure why...
Last night, I was trying to bear the pain until Shone take his last milk session(breastfeeding) at 10pm before I finally take the painkillers (3 very much "drugged" by it) as the medication will flow into the bloodstream and thus the doc advice me to feed him before taking the medication and have a gap of 6 hours after taking the medicine before feeding him again. Finally DH can't bear to see me in pain, then he took over to make Shone sleep (without mommy around) so that I can take the medicine earlier to stop the pain.
Now, I took the medication around 10.30pm last nite, up till now, the next morning, I am still feeling a bit in "daze" and I felt that my response aren't as fast as normal days...phew, don't even dare to overtake a slow-moving truck in front of me...going barely 50km/j...
Now, I kept reminding myself to take it slow and easy, especially when I recalled the mishap faced by my friend who had a car accident with her son in her car simply because she took the flu medication and was feeling drowsy. Damn scary!! Even though she and her son survived the accident, but his 5 years old son had over 20 stiches on his head while she hurt her leg so badly that she cannot drive or walk properly for months. I think she broke her bones...if I am not wrong, she is in clutches when I see her again.
So folks, better take precaution! Always ask the doctor whether the medication will make you feeling drugged/drowsy. If yes, make sure someone else drive you to whichever destination you need to go. Never drive when you are "drugged".
Have a safe trip and healthy lifestyle always...

Hosting a Vegetarian Guest

Hi folks,

Now, I believe every one of us would like to be a good host. It doesn't matter if we like to play host in the first place. Haha…like it or not…(some people love playing host!!), we do play host from time to time in some part of our life, whether is during our wedding, our kids' birthday, etc, etc.

Now, being a vegetarian, I have experienced some very considerate and thoughtful host which makes my visit memorable and of course makes a very good impression on the host as well.

Important points to take note of:

1.       Ask before hand or provide an option.

Some organizers are so considerate and global thinker that they include "vegetarian" option in their meal/special diet checklist in their registration form.

2.       Aware there are different types of vegetarian. Here are some main ones:

Lacto vegetarian - Individuals in this group abstain from all animal products except for dairy products in their diet. Means they do take cheese ( without "animal rennet", i.e. stomach of a young goat/cow)

Lacto-ovo vegetarians - This type of vegetarian diet excludes all meat except for dairy and eggs. Not too different from the previous type except this group do take eggs and the earlier don't.

Vegans - These are the 'hard-core" vegetarians who avoid all animal products in their diet, such as meats, dairy products, and eggs. The vegan diet relies on lentils, beans, soy products etc.

3.       Important points to take note:

a.       Fish and white meat is NOT considered vegetarian for most Asians.

b.      Some vegetarian abstained from garlic, leek, and onion for both religious and health beliefs.

c.       Serve your guest using clean utensils and cooking utensils if possible

The cooking utensils can be nicely-scrubbed and cleaned before using. And for some of my friends, out of respect and logical sense, they would cook the vegetarian dishes before cooking the meat dishes). And some even have special cutleries put away for serving only vegetarian meal as it is common for some Chinese to observe vegetarian during the 1st and 15th of every month in the lunar calendar ;)

Now, I hope it does not sounded too difficult to host a vegetarian guest, in fact, if you master this special skillset (ahem), you would have no problem hosting Muslims friends as well.

In my coming blog entries, I shall share some of the easy- to-make vegetarian party-worthy recipes. Stay tuned…or if you got yours to share, please do! Deeply appreciate it!

Btw, I like to start a simple tag here if there are bloggers who are interested to share…how about sharing Tips to host a Muslim/Vegan/Diabetic/Disabled guest….it'll be such a great learning and sharing articles with everyone! If you do post up, pls. do link amongst us so that readers get to learn to be a good host from all different perspective!

And please, do drop a comment here if you do posted the related articles as I would be your first reader who are interested to read and add on your comment box ;) hehe..

Cheers and thanks folks!

Who forms your eating habits?

Hi folks,

Before I start blah-ing, have you taken your meals/snack? What did you have? Do you enjoy it? Is this what you normally eat daily?

I would think most of us, our eating habits generally influenced a lot by our parents, and then later on as we grew older, we learnt how to make our own food choices.

For me, I think the 3 guys in my life forms different parts of my eating habits in my 30 years of life.

First is my dad who used to preach that no matter how thrifty we are, never save and pinch on food. We must always eat well. True and behold, my dad made sure we have hearty would take the trouble to pack hot and yummy lunch and bring it over to school for us during our break. And every morning, before sending us to school, he would bring us to take hearty breakfast. These were the yummy eating memories I had with my dad.

Then after started dating and then married to my DH, who is a food hunter and food lover, my eating habits also started to grow from there onwards. Being a vegetarian, both of us loves hunting down/visiting new vegetarian outlets or newly discovered ones. He won't mind driving one hour just to taste the food. More often than not, friends (me included) often calls him to check out what vegetarian eating places available at certain location. So he is like a vegetarian outlet directories to many of his friends. I learnt to get pampered once in awhile not cooking at home but to hunt down vegetarian eateries. I also learnt to put more effort to make the food taste and look great when I cook as presentation and taste is so important to my DH.

Then come along my food-loving son. He is like his dad, loves eating to bits. Bring him to a wedding dinner function, you won't have much trouble with him if you can just find the right food for him to munch. He is also one who makes me eat healthier as since I am still breastfeeding him, I have to avoid some taboo food like coconut milk(or in Malay, we call it "santan") and thus curry, chilli, etc to avoid getting windy tummy. So yes, I have not feast on curry rich in coconut milk for sometime now, though I do occasionally have some which is cook with milk or simply no santan at all…

Now, how about you? Who forms your eating habits? No matter what, I think everyone of us do have a choice to choose over our eating habits. So have you started adopting a healthier eating habit as part of your New Year resolution? It's never too late to start!

Let's do it now! For me, I hope to reduce processed food and take more fruits and salad daily!
