Rediscovering Fruits

Hi folks!

Lately, loss of appetite makes me walk down the aisle in search of food which can perks me up. From the fruit front, this stood up- plum.....used to be my staple during my pregnancy with Kay Yee.....daily I will gulp at least 3pcs. And every weekend, DH will bring me to restock at Carrefour. Slight sourish sweet, I got two of these to try got accepted! Yey!
Cheers for a sweet weekends folks! Any food that does "perks/pick-u-up"? :)

When zzz mode was abruptly OFF

Hi folks!

Here I am wide awake by my own bad cough....

Just seen doc last night to get medicine. No antibiotic. Just some flu tablets and cough mixture.

Middle of the night still coughing...

These days there have been many such zzz-less moment due to Nose stucked, shirt all wet from cold sweat and now from cough...

So what do I do when zzz-less? I either practice breathing technique hoping it'll bring me to slumberland or I start browsing my Google Reader to blog-hope, those that interest me the most is recipes and pictures of food...wonder when I could start cooking, eating like normal. Now most food are tasteless to me....and I generally do not have much appetite. Browsing through the Recipes bloggers posted for VEGAN MOFO is truly a great appetite booster even for that few minutes...

Ok I better not bored you with my endless ramblings...time to blog-hop till my eyes feel tired and mind wish to shut down and rest...

Have a good day folks!

What role do you play in your family?

Hi folks!

Everyone in a family plays a role. This is how a unit works.
No matter how big or small. We should try and ask ourselves daily what have we contributed towards our family?

Children can learn to play their role since young too. They can learn to keep their toys and playroom neat and tidy, for older children they can even chip in to do some simple household task. I strongly believe these habits will make them a much better person- whether a better husband or wife to others in the future.

I see husband who simply leave aside plates and cups on the sink without having the thought of washing it. That is when the household is without maid even! So, who is he expecting to wash the dishes? It drums down to habits nurtured since young. So happened that this husband has a mom who is a housewife and since young, that is what they did. Just place the dirty dish on the sink and someone will wash them or someone will even instruct them to just leave it there.

Growing up in a family where we have our duty roster to rotate household chores, from sweeping the floor, washing toilet, preparing meals....I must say I am thankful for the training since young. At least I don't feel helpless without a maid at hand.

Imagine children who has grown up with maid since young, if the parents have not instill some sense of responsibility or role to them, what will they be without the help of maid in the future? I have roommate who cried on the first morning after staying away from home for the first time during college times; reason being....not cos of homesickness but it was the first time she has to fold her own blankets!

Sad but is a possible "handicap" if we are not careful.

So let's try and let all members play their role in the family. Start them young no matter whether we have the luxury of a domestic helper or not.

Cheers to an insightful day!
