Back to my self-care routine

Hi folks!

What do you enjoyed most during your weekend? For me is my one hour me time doing just the thing I don't get to do often.

It feels good to be back to my self-care regime..though I have not pick up my usual speed but it's been a nice slow and easy start πŸ‘πŸ€— walk-run-yoga pose-stretching-jumping-adjusting my audio πŸ˜… to listen to my podcast and audio recording 😊- running and timing myself again πŸ˜‚

Also trying to check my usual 10 rounds the pool within 20mins is actually equivalent to about 1.5km..good benchmark for me..

What a great way to start my day πŸ™❤️πŸ™Œ

Hope your day been great too!

Cheers!

Using essential oils on elderly or more mature user

Hi folks!

From many of my blog posts, many of you would notice, i often posted a lot about using essential oils as it has becomes part of my lifestyle; and i have becoming officially an "oiler", the common term used for people who use essential oils (eo) in their daily life to support their wellness.

Ever since the first time, i applied the oils for my son after he was discharged from the hospital at five months old due to respiratory conditions, i have been very eager to learn more about how these natural therapeutic oils from plants created by the Creator from above could help in the wellness of my entire family. And i chose Young Living for their Seed to Seal process; as I only want the best and purest brand to be used for my family. I have bought other brands previously but truly gasp at the ingredients listed which has very little percentage of essential oils and majority contains of alcohol and even sugar cane!!

I bought books on eo, attended eo talks, learning from many hard-core oilers and even registered for intensive course organised by Center of Aromatherapy Research and Education. Yep, i love learning and sharing what i have learnt and implemented! 

During the last 2017 YL Summit, where there are 14 days and more than 6 free topics each day shared by very well-respected speakers in the world of essential oils.

I love learning and gaining new insights from all these experienced and awesome speakers and i try to make time for it despite my busy schedule. Albeit, i only managed to catch a few while i was driving, eating my meal, doing my housework. Learning enriches my life...and all these will come in handy when times need it.

Being a mom of 3 and a daughter as well...besides being very passionate on all things children, one topic which really stood out to me is topic on elderly as i see how my own mom has been aging a lot, so is my mother-in-law and in general many of the people who used to care for me. They are all progressing into the "senior" citizen" group and experiencing changes, both physically and mentally.


KY and her grandpa, picture taken in year 2008 by a very talented Photographer, Milin Kassim

Last weekend, i was performing raindrop massage for my close friend's father who is half-paralyzed on his left side from stroke. As i apply the oils for him (a shy yet independent uncle), it reminded me of my own grandfather who has passed away. I am glad to hear that his pain is gone after the raindrop session and he asked if i could massage his left hand too, and i gladly do it for him. I felt really glad and grateful to be able to provide some relief for this uncle.

So, here's a post both for my own reminder as well as to share with all of you out there who are keen to learn about the Dos and Don'ts when using essential oils on elderly folks (in general above age of 50). Bear in mind, everyone is different, some folks might be veteran oilers (like the uncle i mentioned above who is blessed with a very filial daughter who provided him with all the oils to support his health) which are pretty fine using it as per normal user.

Also, i managed to screen capture one of the crucial topics both to elderly men and women on hormonal support shared by by Dr. Jim Bob Haggerton who is a Chiropractor by trade.

Now, here are the six keypoints i managed to capture.
EO for Mature and Older User (>50) by Dr. Jim Bob Haggerton, a Chiropractor

  1. For older folks, their skin is thinner- dilute the eo and be caution in using hot oils (i felt we can apply the same principles we used for children when we are applying oils for very elderly folks)
  2. Support the gut as less enzyme are produced in their gut ( eo like Digize, Peppermint, Thieves, AromaEase came into my mind) Dr. Bob shared about using Peppermint, Digize and YL supplement like Life 9 for probiotics 
  3. Blood sugar support- Slique tea, ecotea are great choices for this
  4. Circulation - as older folks are not moving that well compared to their younger self; thus if we can make them able to move better, thus improve their blood circulation)
    Movement is key; movement is Life. Stay active by using the products like:
    Frankincense - circulation, skin
    OrthoSport - before activity; use on joints and muscles
    Ningxia Red- anti-oxidant; blood flows easily and thus the cells no need to work too hard
    Surfurzyme - great for liver support
  5. Hormonal balancing for older folks
    Valor- very helpful for men to help them staying grounded and balanced (i.e.,less grumpy)
    DHEA is very important to help other hormones work and being distributed properly

    Other oils that support hormonal health for both men and women:

  6. Bones, Muscles and Joint
    Frankincense, Deep Relief (support muscle), Copaiba(structure) , wintergreen (joint support)
Go slow, be consistent, use the oil daily. Incorporate as a healthy lifestyle. May this brings much agility, hope, health and fun for elderly folks. And all of us(with blessings from above) would be walking on this "senior citizen" path someday too!

Contact me or leave me a message if you like to learn more about Young Living essential oils. I am more than happy to share with you. You can also easily purchase the oils at wholesale price from here.

Thank you for reading and sharing my journey in using essential oils for wellness. May you received abundance blessings and good health daily too!

Cheers!

My trusty aid to calm a child and continue to have fun



Hi folks! 

I would like to share this incident happened quite sometime back and it happened again recently which I thought it might benefit others so I like to share it here.

Once, I brought my kids, my in-laws as well as my niece and nephew to go cycling at Tmn. Tasik Titiwangsa. Out of a sudden, barely 10 minutes we arrived, my niece complained of tummy upset. Then my mil quickly asked me to apply my "oil" for her (as she often see how I used to apply essential oils for my children for all sorts of ailments). 

While Digize or Tummygize are the two best oil for tummy discomfort, I only carry Lavender eo with me (those who knows me would know I love and always carry around my eo first aid- lavender with me everywhere I go!). So I just make a prayer and apply on her tummy as well as her chest and let her inhale the remaining lavender eo on palm. Voila, the oil managed to calm her down and she no longer feels pain in her tummy and was able to continue having fun with the rest of her cousins ❤️

So tis incident further proves to me that eo with its high frequencies and lavender being eo with calming effects is my all-round first aid oil to have around! Yep, sometimes when we don't have the best "oil" for the situation, just say our prayer and make the best intention and trust the oil do its work.

And if you are wondering where I get my Young Living essential oil, you can actually get this from here.

Try to get the membership and buy it at wholesale price(it's more worth it!) rather than paying at retail price or buying elsewhere. You gained more than just wholesale price..you will also get some promo and free oils from their loyalty plan. So it's killing two birds with one stone! 

As a mom of 3, I often look for best bargain to gain the most benefits of the money spent. So feel free to contact me if you wish to find out which if the promo items that worth to invest!

Cheers and have an awesome day!

Best travelling aid ever

Hi folks!

I just returned from a short trip from a country that has all sorts of yummy "fried" food. You can see fries 🍟, fried food and potatoes pretty much everywhere.

It's so easy to be overeating or indulge too much of these yummy but not too healthy food while travelling. My throat felt itchy after eating too many salt and pepper tofu(last trip was too much of pizza πŸ•)

Luckily i always carry around my small sachet of Young Living Lemon essential oil while I travel. It never fails πŸ‘ to sooth my itchy throat while traveling and getting over-heaty from the food I ate.

Reliving the love for Marvel's Spider-Man


Hi folks!

Which are the Marvel character you are most fond of or remember most now which your kids would most probably recognize as well if not a big FAN too? Oh yes, for mine is definitely Peter Parker, the Marvel's Spiderman! 



Spiderman, Spiderman, does whatever a spider can...... (yes, now can you recall that catchy tune!)...

Now, good news for Spiderman's fan,he brand-new Marvel's Spider-Man animated series is set to premiere on Disney XD (Astro Channel 617) on October 14, Saturday, and available On Demand.

Peter Parker is a normal teenage boy who lives in Queens, New York with his Aunt May and Uncle Ben. He is a shy boy, but highly intelligent and excels in science at his school, Horizon High. 



With the principal and found of Horizon High, Max Modell

No doubt this series will be a hit with my children as they certainly can relate better to this new series whereby the famous wall crawling superhero is a 15-year old schoolboy called Peter Parker. 

In this series, Disney XD brings Spider-Man closer to audiences in a series of comedic videos featuring Malaysian kids who imagine a world with their friendly neighborhood superhero.





In the series, after the death of his Uncle Ben, Peter devotes his life to honor his wise adage - “with great power comes great responsibility”...i love this quote and it is apt and great lessons for kids. Using his newfound abilities, he becomes Spider-Man by night, and vows to protect his family and friends from danger.



The series is filled with action, drama, humor and heart going back to the basic elements that we older fans would enjoy as Peter Parker gets schooled in the art of becoming the hero that audiences know and love as Marvel's Spider-Man.



From 1 October, fans can tune in to Disney XD and Disney Channel to enjoy the fun videos. It will also be available on Disney Channel Asia’s social media platforms (YouTube: YouTube.com/Disney Channel Asia; Facebook: Facebook.com/Disney Channel Asia).

Now, here is my little Marvel's Spider-Man fan, getting all ready to use their superhero power to accomplish their great responsibility! Now, are you getting excited to check out this new series too? Don't forget to tune in Disney XD Astro Channel 617 on 14 October folks!



Hope you have a spidey and spectacular weekend!

Making the switch

Hi folks!

I just can’t help falling in love with Thieves collection..


The first one I have fallen in love with is the Thieves essential oil which gives our immune system the extra boost, added to manuka honey, it just soothe my sore throat and ulcers.


Next, thanks to my friend who recommended the Thieves Household Cleaner. The first time I used it to mop the floor on CNY eve before my “balik kampung” a.k.a. back-to-hometown trip, 4 days later when i returned home, I am being welcome with the nice lemon and thieves smell once I opened the door..what a pleasant surprise and love at first “scent” for me




Subsequently, I went on to try the following Thieves series each month as I redeem them with my points:
  • Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier- great for travels with kids especially!), Thieves spray(my frequent aid-on-the-go) 
  • Thieves Laundry Soap- yey no more chemical smell on the clothes and bedsheet! 
  • Thieves Dental floss- my daughter’s recent addition to her dental care regime) 
  • Thieves Cleansing soap- it helps with my skin rashes and more economical for savvy momma, 
  • Thieves Dish Soap - friendly on my hands, I can finally wash my dishes without wearing gloves and safe for kids to help out too! 
and last but not least...the latest addition to My Thieves Try-out collection .......is

Thieves Fruit and Veggie Spray- great for My On-the-go kitchen. Now I don’t have to worry when I am cooking and eating out without my Fruits and Vege cleaner

What’s more the best thing is, I got these for FREE!

How? ‘Cos YL rewards their members with generous PV points rebate(10%, 20% and 25%!) on top of their purchase of YL products at wholesale price. This is certainly another great incentives and great way to ditch the chemical laden products in my family and opt for a more friendly version




Does your local supermarket reward you with free gift of your choice for purchasing your household cleaning supplies? Are you thinking to ditch the chemical laden products at home and switch to a chemical free home for your family? Just give me a buzz if you are interested to find out how you can do so and be rewarded too! As a mom of 3, I often look for best bargain to gain the most benefits of the money spent. So feel free to contact me if you wish to find out which if the promo items that worth to invest!

Alternatively, you can also easily sign up online as member and enjoy the oils at wholesale price here.

Try to get the membership and buy it at wholesale price(it's more worth it!) rather than paying at retail price or buying elsewhere. You gained more than just wholesale price..you will also get some promo and free oils from their loyalty plan. So it's killing two birds with one stone!

Folks, make the choice to live a chemical free home starting from the ones we used daily. Each chemical ditches is an awesome you can give to yourself and loved ones at home! Will you make the switch for the health of you and your family too?

Cheers and have a chemical free day!

Chemicals and Choices We make

Hi folks!

When I read about the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 in California requires that the Governor revise and republish at least once per year the list of chemicals known to the State to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity.  

Seriously, if we wonder how these days people are not as healthy as before despite the advancement in medical and healthcare. Does anyone realised how many types of chemicals we are exposing ourselves daily from the day we wake up, brush our teeth, clean our face, shower and drinking and eating from plastic made of BPA material, etc.

Check out our household products, skincare or even processed/junk food we have at home whether they appear in this Proposition 65 list of chemicals.

Time to take a close look and ditch the chemical that is adding the burden into our body detox system. Try to use glassware and not to reuse or even reheat the food in plastic containers. Reduce the dependent on canned and processed food and go for whole food as much as possible. Note: It's also a reminder to myself...how we can balance between health over convenience sake! Make the right choice!

Go now, take out the common toothpaste,  containers, or skincare and check on the list. How many can you identify: 

https://www.p65warnings.ca.gov/chemicals


Sadly, many medicines are also listed in the list.


Now can we do ourselves a favour by ditching the chemicals in our daily life and stay clean as much as we can to reduce the burden we are adding on to our body detox system?


I have since changed to use glassware more than plastic containers. It is cheaper in the long run πŸƒ 

Also, I have switched to chemical free toothpaste, skincare, laundry soap, washing detergents and trying to avoid the convenience products like canned and processed food.


Still got a lot to work on I must say as our family members are so used to all these food and products. But as a mom we must make the right choice for our family! Hopefully we are able to include more of the good and none of the bad starting from our home 🏠 


Cheers and have a chemical free life!

Burning midnight oil and Crunching Numbers

Hi folks!

Recently I have to take a financial test which comes with lotsa mind-boggling calculations...

Honestly, I am not one who's very good with numbers and figures; and facing numbers too long makes me giddy and headache at times πŸ˜… 

I spent a lot of wee hours trying to make senses of the figures and formulas. Thus, at the end of the test, I rewarded myself with a pack of coconut water(which easily cost MYR4 a pkt nowadays at the roadside stall!)

During my revision and before my test, I applied the following oils:
1. Cedarwood- as this oil is oxygenating for the brain; brings more clarity of thoughts
2. BrainPower- what's more to say, I needed the extra boost of BrainPower to crunch my numbers! I applied on the big thumb of my toe and inhale it by taking 6 deep breathe (I did the same for my kids during their exam period)
3. Clarity- some ppl call this a "Mathematical" oil as it contains peppermint and rosemary and thus promotes clarity and alertness, awesome oil to have when you need to go through some new learning task at hand πŸ‘

I have passed my test πŸ™Œ Another tick on my bucket list - lifelong learning! I am glad I took up the challenge and now I felt more empathetic towards the challenges that my children might be facing at their study. Hopefully by seeing mommy still working hard to improve her knowledge and skills despite out of school for so long motivates them to work hard at their school work too! 

As the Chinese sayings goes, ζ΄»εˆ°θ€ε­Έεˆ°θ€, Live and learn; Never too late/old to learn...Anyone on this path with me πŸ‘‹

My next adventure..mastering a musical instrument with my kids perhaps πŸ˜„✌️

Thanks πŸ™ to these oils that accompanied along the journey!

Cuts and Aid to the rescue

Hi folks!

Sometimes without noticing, we get cuts and wound somewhere..but don't leave it unattended as it might get infected especially if it is an open wound.

When i saw DH's back with an open wound(which he told me he's not sure when and how he got it), I quickly apply Helichrysum(eo which we called it as "invisible seal", you can also apply lavender or Frankinsence eo) and seal it with tender tush.

Give the wound a tender loving care and it will soon be well.

How to have a peaceful moment at morning rush hour

Hi folks!


Lately, my youngest has been rather "challenging" and cranky. He is getting more vocal and independant and having his own mind over his daily routine, from waking up, choosing his own clothes and buttoning up himself to making his own sandwich for school(yes and he's only 4).

If you ever want to give him a hand(out of your rush hour or simply just to avoid the mess).... mind you please seek his permission before even begin your assistance. Otherwise you will most likely experience a longer period of tantrums, uncooperative mode and worst defiant "kids" strike 🀦‍♀️ which will definitely prolong your getting ready-to-go-out time.

So I learnt to pick my "fights" and close one eye over little matters. Also I have restarted my happy 😊 oiling routine for him. Last time when he used to have nightmare or unable to sleep due to teething or maybe some events going round his life during the day time...I would dilute and apply peace and calming on him(if I managed to during his tantrum otherwise I would apply on me as I was carrying him to sleep then).

So these days before waking my "baby boss" up, I will first dilute peace and calming on my palm and apply on his chest and back. Next, is his tummy oil(I would either use Tummygize or diluted Digize) and whichever oil that meant for his comfort for the day. It can be Joy if he is especially cranky, Idaho Balsam Fir if he is having some cough or sniffles, etc.


So far it has been working. I get my magic words without asking.."Thank you mommy for bringing my shoes for me", "Thank you mommy for .this.. and that"...and at good times I get hugs πŸ€— and kisses too 😘 phew..πŸ™❤️

I hope this peaceful departure to school will last as long as it can 😁

Boys vs Girls




Hi folks!


People often asked me what is the difference between having boys than girls (as I have two sons and one daughter)...I would say girl is a good company for all girlie trips and stuff and also love to share their stories with you (stick with you) whereas boys are more adventurous, playful and have something up on their sleeves (almost) ALL THE TIME. Sometimes it can create such a headache or heart attack for me.


Yesterday was a day off for my two kids due to a local Yr 6(UPSR) exam at school which needs to allocate the classrooms for the exam candidates. And it happened to be a day off for me as well..


So I took the chance to have some one-to-one date(very important!) with my two kids. After dropping off the eldest for some enrichment trial class, I brought my second one somewhere for a chat before heading home to do some household chores. He then told me that he wanted to use the staircase instead of the lift...the next minute when I reached our floor...I saw him limping... 🀦‍♀️


So quickly I got an ice pack ready and got my eo pocket reference book out again..and found out wow the Idaho Balsam Fir which I used for youngest son's cough and respiration issues is actually great for his sprain ankle. Also the Cool Azul is also great to reduce the pain. So I dilute the oil with OrthoEase massage oil(a type of massage oil used in the raindrop massage technique) and layered it one after another before putting the ice-pack for him.


One and a half hour later we had to go out to fetch my eldest daughter. At first I was worried that he might not able to walk. End up he was again running and hiding away at the staircase πŸ’† I dunno 🀷‍♀️if I should get angry 😑at him for the hide n seek during my rushy hour or be happy πŸ˜‡that his ankle pain gone so quickly ...


Haha this is the tale about having boy over girl and also how the oils have again helped me in need of time so that we could resume our remaining day activity. It's not always we get this one-to-one bonding moment ...which is very important for us to connect with each of our children and be aware of their challenges or train of thoughts at every stage of their life πŸ˜‰


And now I learnt a new function of my beloved Idaho Balsam Fir 🌲 eo which I have also passed some to my sis when my niece was admitted for lung infection recently. It's the oil to go when you have younger children with respiratory issue πŸ‘ Just dilute and apply on their spine and sole every 2-3hours to ease the condition and help the body to recover better.

The most painful affair for men

Hi folks!

Anyone can guess which is the most painful matter πŸ˜– for male and second most painful matter for female?
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
Ok....give yourself a pat if you got it right...yes!! It's toothache!

What happened when you have toothache at night when dental clinics are closed? Excruciating pain is killing you!!!

Last night when I reached home, my husband was not at his usual self and I asked him why? So he was having toothache... I remembered reading about Clove and Copaiba(the magnifying oil when we apply it after the initial oil, it just magnify its effect..also it's a very safe oil to be used for kids when they are down with fever πŸ€’ or throat infection).

Back to tooth pain..I verified the usage protocol by referring to my trusty eo pocket reference book and voila! Yep πŸ‘ it's Clove alright! It is advisable to dilute 50:50 especially for kids but for adults if you can manage it, it's ok to apply neat(DH just dab it neat on the painful area/gum).

Firstly, as what I learn and tried myself is to use thieves spray to numb the area of pain and also to disinfect the area. Next apply 1-2drops of Clove eo followed with 1 drop of Copaiba eo. Next, from the eo pocket Reference guide, it also mentioned about German Chamomile(which I have used it for my son's fever last round... it has a calming effect), so I diffuse it on my Aria Diffuser and DH just went into a deep sleep.

This morning when he woke up, I asked if he like to visit the dentist? He said seems like the pain is gone πŸ˜€

Thankful for the oils and also the trusty eo pocket reference guide to our rescue πŸ‘

Awesome advice in the nick of time! Also thanks to my oiler friends who shared how they have used Clove for gum pain and how copaiba(if you are using for babies...try use this instead of Clove as it's less "stinging") can help to magnify the effect and equally helpful for tooth pain too.

Sharing is caring ❤️. Do share your experience of any tried and tested natural remedies which has worked for you or your family πŸ‘‹! Would love to hear from all of you too!

I love researching, using and experiment with natural remedies like using the essential oils for all things in my life- balancing hormones, quick-mommy-pick-me-up, exam-BrainPower boosting, seasoning flu-immune boosting, small little accidents in life(will share more in following posts).

Are you keen to find out more how about the Young Living Essential Oils that I am using for my family? Just give me a buzz and I am happy to share more with you.

And do you know you can also easily sign up as member here and enjoy the oils at wholesale price. It's very simple:

Do get your membership instead of buying off-the-shelf from those online stores as you enjoyed much more benefits as a member than just purchasing off-the-shelf or as retail price.

Happy Holiday and Having a Cold

Hi folks!

Our Malaysia government has just announced a Public Holiday on Mon to celebrate our achievement at Sea Games! Yey..this brings along some travelling opportunities.

When we talk about travelling, what we afraid most is being down and sick 😷 and thus unable to fully enjoy the travels.

When my son was down with cough followed with my daughter with mild fever...subsequently as I didn't have enough rest and exercise for that duration of time, my immune went down too and I catch the cold.

And I am attending a retreat the very next day. Thus here are what I have packed for myself (I try to limit the amount of things I bring for this trip). I brought with me 4 packs of Ningxia Red plus 5 Ningxia nitro. I am glad I bought these items ahead and have the stocks with me. I have bought the Ningxia Nitro for my daughter when she has rigorous training for her ballet competition, for my 10km run and for my husband who often had to rely on coffee for his caffein dose. (Ningxia Nitro has natural caffeine which I used for my extra energy boost). And Ningxia Red sachet has been a staple in my family especially when we are out and about. It's very easy to carry around and kids love it.

Next I have the following oils with me:
*Lemon- which is helpful for my cold
*RC- great for respiratory (it contains Eucalyptus)
*Peppermint- My rescuer when I had nose block, mild fever and body pains due to cold
*Thieves- to boost my body natural immunity and recovers faster
* Digize- gut health, we often neglected this part. Gut health is the key for our immune health

Along with Vita-Flex massage on the sinus and lung as well as my intestines point on my sole.(see the image enclosed)
Note: Thanks to my friend who reminded me about applying the oils on my sole ❤️ It's great to have friends around you who are well-informed about all these wellness and self-help approach especially so when we can all forgot about what we have learnt and could do to help ourselves when we are down and sick.

Vita-Flex is a safe, non-invasive, pressure-point reflexive massage technique. It uses rolling and releasing motions to activate reflex points on the feet, hands, and various areas throughout the entire body. It is particularity effective in delivering the benefits of essential oils throughout the body.

I felt much better after that. At least I could go through my course with full focus and not down with sleepiness, lethargic and blurriness that often accompanied cold. I don't expect an immediate recovery but I know I am giving my body the aid it needs and the time to heal and recuperate on its own.

This is one self-care and self-love practice we can all learn to give to ourselves πŸ’•

Note: This is just my personal sharing. It is important to always seek medical advice and assistance according to your own condition. Make the wise and responsible choices. Especially when we are not health experts who are able to diagnose our health condition. I did seek the medical team for advise before I knew what actions to take for myself to achieve my objective of staying alert and focus for achieving the purpose of my trip.

Are you interested to find out more how about wellness and how to incorporate Essential Oils into your daily health regime? Just give me a buzz and I am happy to share more with you.

Childhood memories

Hi folks!

What are your childhood memories? I remembered and love the breakfast trip after our jogging session every Sun.

I love the hot and yummy breakfast and special dishes my mom would prepare for us. The stew bittergourd that only my mom and I would lick till the last bits, the big plate of fried tofu with dipping sauce made of soysauce and tomato/chilli sauce....all these made up of my childhood memories...

When I was pregnant with KY, I craved for all these food I had when I was young...the smell of these food seems to be appearing in my thoughts.

Now what childhood memories I am creating for my children? What will they remember and bring it along with them to adulthood? How about fish-watching at Koi pond, playing badminton and having picnic at carpark when it's raining?

May we create a lovely memories for our children that they can recount in the future.(not just time spent on gadgets!)

Cheers!

No-Wastage Kitchen Exploratory: Making Mushroom Balls

Hi folks!

Another no-wastage mission and kitchen exploratory- Making my own mushroom balls ✌️with my "unfinished mushroom" stock lovingly gifted by my mil ❤️

Haha..there are different sizes and patterns as my 4-year-old son joined me in the kitchen experiment too ✌️edible anyhow..love the kitchen activity with my kids πŸ€—πŸ’•

These stocks will then be frozen and used for our pasta and other stir-fry.

A tale of No Wastage and Grateful towards Another Bandaraya at Home

Hi folks!

Growing up, we were brought up with just enough to get by but sufficient for all our basic needs. We learnt not to waste any food, etc. Thus, it formed a habit in me never to waste anything anywhere..be it at home or outside the house.

I can't stop myself from switching off any lights or power wherever I go(as much as I could)..I would try to use any items before it goes expired.

So this morning I felt truly grateful to find a finished loaf of bread πŸ₯– package at the dining table.

Why? More often than not mommy is the unofficial "bandaraya" a.k.a. municipal council@home that clears the unfinished food πŸ₯˜ to avoid wastage (yeah..which contributes to our ever-growing waistline πŸ˜… hands-up any mommies?)

One homemaking lesson I learnt is not to buy bread on the last day of the schooling day a.k.a. Friday as weekend has far too many choices than the usual sandwich for breakfast. So when I made a mistake by buying a loaf of bread πŸ₯– last Fri, I end up trying my best to finish it over lunch@work. Yet it still has - few slices to go..

I remembered sharing with DH that I will bring the bread to work to finish it before it expired (no wastage)...so seeing the finished bread this morning brings some warmth to me..as I felt I am not the only one supporting this no-wastage culture at home 🏑..and DH is listening(actively) and contributing too ❤️

Small gesture but truly significant πŸ€—πŸ‘to me.

What are the small gestures you feel grateful of from your family members or people around you? Hope you will catch these gestures and gives them a thumbs-up or keep it in your grateful list for the day πŸ€—πŸ’•

Have a non-wastage day!

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 πŸ™πŸ‘ 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!
