Parent Challenge #-Am I progressing or regressing?

Hi folks,

I blew my top again yesterday & this morning. Why? I was totally depleted of energy when the kids are still singing away loudly at 11.15pm. And this morning my son woke me up at 4am to construct his train set, watch his Ben 10, play on iPad... Yep I stopped myself from blog-hopping and switch with reading the newsletter from BMS organic..which is reminds me whether I am progressing or regressing in terms of healthy diet for me and the much am I doing for the environment? I am turning in my recycleables and stocking up my organic later...positive "punishment" for once which I am benefitting..but still lotsa work to do on NOT SHOUTING or fuming at the kids antics..wish me all the Best!

Parenting Challenge #1

Hi folks!

I am challenging myself on the Parenting spectrum. Interested to join me?

Human cells renew every 3 months so the folk says...guess that is why most supplements would encourage you to take it for at least 3 mths to see the results?

I am now challenging myself to use other alternatives and positive measure to replace:
SHOUTING and RAISING my VOICE at the kids

So, in order to make it work i am taking a deep breath each time my "temperature" rising. And made sure I control my tongue.

What if I failed...I have to apologize to the kids, excused myself and do something positive (like spending full time with them, no blog-hopping, no internet, no TV)...those are the only luxury daily...which I think can be cut off...

What if I passed the challenge? I would have pick up more than one ways to communicate positively with the children and hopefully reduce the "damage" done to the kids; and I do notice kids opened up to you more when you treat them as your friend. When your friend made mistake, you do not raise your friend at them, do you?

So, yes...wish me luck on my first self-imposed Parenting challenge.

Start from now...and with weekly reports on how i fare!

Send me all your best wishes and love everyone!

Special Father's Day meal

Hi folks!

Yesterday night, hubby brought back special "lemang" and a special "teh tarik" said to be famous at a particular small town.

Lemang is a traditional Malay food made of glutinous rice and coconut milk and cooked in a hollowed bamboo stick lined with banana leaves in order to prevent the rice from sticking to the bamboo

Teh tarik (literally "pulled tea" or 拉茶 in Chinese) is a hot Malaysian tea beverage which can be commonly found in restaurants, outdoor stalls and kopi tiams in Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei. Its name is derived from the pouring process of "pulling" the drink during preparation. It is made from black tea and condensed milk.
(Picture source: Google)

As it is also Father's Day, we had lemang with vegetarian curry as the sauce (just the way DH likes it). To cool it down, we prepared our favourite cocktail and nata de coco desserts.

DH said some people dip lemang in kaya. I was thinking what is the kids going to eat lemang with? As Shone is asleep(yep, each family celebration, so coincidently!), KY is happily eating the curry potatoes instead of the lemang.

 And, we have some leftovers for tomorrow's (today) lunch. Note the baguette is one I had bought after my gym session. KY ate half loaf dipping into mixed sauce I had leftover from the salad dressings= lemon+mixed herbs + braggs liquid aminos+ extra virgin olive TASTE YUMMY!!!

Now, how do you usually have your lemang? Please do share. And how does your kids eat it?

Overall, it is a quiet, simple yet fulfilling Father's Day meal for us, in a very Malaysian style ;)

How has your celebration been? Hope it was heartwarming too.
