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 🙏👍 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!

A ritual with all 3 kids

Hi folks!

Last Sat, I was away attending the Young Living Beauty School event with my gf...and a comb of bananas was left untouched at home.

So, on Sun, as a ritual with the two older ones, i decided to bake banana muffin infused Young Living lemon essential oil.

The verdict: it may not look very pro or good, but it taste really yummy..the muffin were snapped up fast before I could take a decent photo 😄

How has your weekend been? Hope it has been fun-filled and fruitful too 👍

Discovery and mini culinary adventures

Hi folks!

I am not sure which stall started it, after I seen one of the vegetables stalls started selling bundles of vegetables at 3 bundles for MYR5, there are a lot of other stalls have started having that offer too. And usually it's the usual varieties. One day I stumbled upon this unusual vegetables(to me at least!) called Bentong Seaweed. Sounds very yummy and healthy to me. So off I went buying a bundle along with two other vegetables that my family loved like French beans and lettuce.

I asked the seller how should I prepare this vegetables, and she said just stir-fry it. I am feeling adventurous and in need of some comfort hot soup so I though to try it out with some noodles soup. Amazingly yummy when added with slices of ginger and vegetarian anchovies/mushroom stalk slices. Awesomely yummy I must say!

Love to explore more of these many types of vegetables that I have yet to try ..and looks very nutritious too!

Rushy Day and Uncooperative toddler...what to do?




Hi folks!

Being a full-time working mom of 3 school-going children, it can gets rather challenging especially when you have a rather defiant toddler fighting with his equally defiant brother. My morning can be a warzone or a deaf-mode depending which mode I chose.

Often, i would get a melt-down toddler who refused to walk on his own when his wants are not met. What's more challenging is we are often running late...multiply the stress by many times...

Sometimes i get impatient and mad, at times i just try to mellow down and negotiate or speak to my beloved toddler nicely. Previously, when i find myself raging or getting mad, i can feel the pain in my heart. I don't get that of late. Not sure if using ylang ylang essential oil daily on my wrist and back of my neck daily has anything to do with it.

After getting a short haircut, my hair gets bit messy in the morning, so i checked and found out that cedarwood and ylang ylang essential oil helps to manage this dry and untidy mane. So i have been diligently applying these two oils every morning. It seems to calm my morning rush beside calming my "hair".

So, mommies out there, who often have power struggle with your children, i strongly recommend that you apply some ylang ylang essential oils as a layer of protection for your heart health. Also, it really acts well as our natural perfume too!

Am loving this new routine of mine while trying to have a more peaceful morning routine with my two bubbly boys.

Cheers to a calmer morning folks! Love to get any tips and tricks from y'all!

Note: If you like to know where to get the ylang ylang and cedarwood essential oils i am using, feel free to give me a message. Alternatively, you can also easily check out here how you could get those handy oils at wholesale price. It's just so simple to use!

Mommy's Doraemon Bag

Hi folks!

When you have active boys or curious girls around, Mommy's bag have to be what my kids named it as a "Doraemon's" 😉 bag.

When we went out for meal yesterday my son just dashed away, running and then tripped at the parking lot despite our warning not to run(as usual...kids just seems to be programmed to run the moment they see a large space at every opportunity 🤷‍♀️)..

He kept quiet in the car after listening to short lecture from us..then my hubby noticed the cuts on his knee.

Immediately, my daughter called out to me, mommy did you bring any oils(a.k.a essential oils)? Let's apply some for him.

So I dished out my "doraemon" bag and found a plaster, a lavender essential oil(which I always carry around) and a thieves spray. Just what we needed to clean the wound(with thieves spray), stop and soothe the pain(with lavender essential oil) and protect the wound (with plaster) temporary from brushing against other surface.

What mommy's "gadget" do you keep in your bag? I still have some other handy ones that I bring in my doraemon's bag 😊...Thieves hand sanitiser, a small toy car 🚗 and my diffuser necklace with my fav pick-me-up essential oils(geranium, ylang ylang, Idaho black Spruce, Believe...rotated according to what I pick for the day) to cheer up my days ❤️

All these comes in handy when time calls for it 👍💪 when we are out and about 🚙

What do you bring along in your bag which you find useful? Do share with me ❤️

And if you are interested to find out more how about the Young Living Essential Oils I used to carry around with me, just give me a buzz and I am happy to share more with you.

Aid for chicken pox scar

Hi folks!

Tea tree oil also known as Melaleuca, this is one of the essential oil which I have bought and uses a lot!

When I had chicken pox during my 8th month pregnancy, imagine my entire big belly was so itchy and my face too. And some kind soul recommended that I use tea tree oil as it can reduce the itchiness as well as reduce scar.

So each time after shower, I would diligent use a cotton bud and apply the oil near on each of the dots on my face, belly, arms, etc. True enough, the itch was bearable and I am able to sleep. And today I am don't have any scar(since it's not itchy and I managed not to scratch) anywhere from the chicken pox that I had.

And today I have often use tea tree oil for my acne and also it is said to be able to reduce black heads 😊 i love the cooling sensation that comes from applying this oil. Plus it can also be used alternatively with diluted Thieves or lemon essential oils on the sole of school-going children to help in their immune system especially when the weather gets cold.

Raya activities and small kitchen mishaps





Hi folks! During the Raya weekend, we went back to visit my in-laws with my children. We love the cooking time together as my mother-in-law would prepare a lot of lovely food for us. I could only be her assistant and do some cutting and washing.

As I was cutting some chillies 🌶, I accidentally cut my thumb and the blood just kept oozing out. I am not sure how Deep is the cut but I could feel the pain and my in-law must have been shocked to see the drips of blood on the chopping board.

So immediately I rush upstairs and get my lavender and I dropped neat on the wound and tried to stop the bleeding by holding onto it and put on the plaster. Of course we know helichrysum essential oil would be the best oil in such circumstances as it is a natural painkiller and is known as the invisible seal for cuts like this. However, with only lavender with me, I just use it with faith and it does help to reduce the pain and subsequently stop the bleeding as well.

No stitches required and the wound is now healed. So folks, do get one and carry your handy lavender essential oil around whenever your u go...you never know when you might need it! ❤️

I used it for cuts, for insect bites, as insect repellant, for burns, for bath soak, for a good sleep and simply just to relax and have a lovely scent around...to up our frequencies ✌️

❤️ my lavender eo, my trusty first aid 🙏

Traffic condition after Raya break

Hi folks!

After the long (Hari Raya) break, everyone seems to be working hard to clear their piles of work in office that for the past few days, it was such an unusually bumper-to-bumper ride at the carpark itself(my colleagues and I were stuck in a massive jam in the carpark for as long as 30 minutes) and all the way home! Last night it took my friend 2 hours instead of 1 hour to reach home.

I felt aching all over my body due to the long drive. After I finished my dinner and getting ready for shower it was already 9pm. I got my husband to apply the raindrop oils with some basic feathering technique for me and I slept like a baby 👶 till it was hard to wake up early to prepare my daughter for school 😊 the next day!

Back pain and Raindrop relief


Hi Folks! 

Last long weekend hubby did some vacuuming at home and kinda sprained/hurt his back. So, I did raindrop massage for him and he felt much better now.

One of the benefit of raindrop is realignment of the spine which is why we also could see some increase in height(see the picture where I mark the before and after raindrop height...an increased of almost 1cm). 

Our body is like a car or machine too which needs realignment from time to time so that the circulation flows smoothly and we feel at our optimum condition to proceed with our daily task. 

My raindrop instructor has been doing raindrop for her children since they were as young as 7(we can change the oils used to suit the age of the person having the raindrop massage) and her 5 children all grown pretty tall(we wonder if this could be the reason 😊). Anyhow, likewise when we do frequent heavy lifting and have bad sitting and walking posture, our alignment runs off easily too! So it's good to have raindrop session once a month for maintenance and overall wellness.

Also, raindrop is also good for the following:
* Balance and Re-align the Energy Centers of the Body –  The oils help support the body to come back into balance by opening energy flow throughout the body. The essential oil blend of Valor helps the body align and is often referred to as "chiropractor in a bottle"

* Reduce Stress and Minor Anxiety – The oils enhance positive emotions and release negative emotions that are subconsciously stored on a cellular level. 

* Aid the Body's Natural Response to Irritation and Injury – Thyme and Oregano support the immune, respiratory, nervous, and other body systems.

* Ease Occasional Muscle, Bone, and Joint Discomfort – Muscles that are sore, spastic or stressed will also benefit. Basil, Wintergreen, Marjoram, Cypress and Peppermint essential oils reduce tension in muscles. 

* Improve Immune System Functions – Thyme and Oregano essential oils support the immune system; and aid in the release of toxins in the body. 

* Emotional Well Being and Release – Essential oils cross the blood-brain barrier and effect the limbic system where emotions are stored in the "brain's emotional computer". 

* Help Detox the Body Systems – The oils being high in phenols cleanse cellular receptor sites and enhance cleansing of the body.

My hubby who mostly a late sleeper, knocked out on the fourth oils I used for foot vitaflex(there are altogether 9 oils used in this raindrop technique). It's a great way to let our mind and body relax and detox in a way. I would get him to abstain from coffee for a week to aid in the entire detox process. 

I am very glad that I have learnt this raindrop massage technique so that I could do it for my family and loved ones. Would you like learn to do it too? We could probably gather in a group and learn it together. Even if you don't get to master the entire technique at first go(it took us few rounds to get the technique right)....the raindrop oils itself applied in the sequence indicated has such properties that helps the body to do its job! And to what the founder of this raindrop technique, Gary Young said, everyone can learn raindrop!

Wish to find out more how about the oils used in raindrop technique? Just give me a buzz and I am happy to share more with you.

Alternatively, you can also easily sign up as member here and get the oils yourself at wholesale price. Just so simple!

Cheers to a healthy weekend folks!

Trip to Taman Tasik Titiwangsa

Hi folks!

What have you done during the Raya break? We have make a trip back to visit my in-laws and during the first day while the adults are busy catching up, the kids were glued to their gadgets.

So, on the second day, we decided to bring the kids out for a "gadget detox"and some fun outdoor time. We went to the Titiwangsa Lake Gardens or Taman Tasik Titiwangsa after my mil's friend strongly recommended this place which has been reopened after some renovation work was done.

As it was raining that morning, we waited awhile before setting out to Taman Tasik Titiwangsa. When we reached i was wow-ed by the varieties of bicycles you can find there! There are two-seaters, three-seaters and even four, and six-seaters! Yes...it makes family fun time even more wonderful. Imagine the whole family of 6 cycling together in this riding "machine" i called it..awesome time!


Each bicycles are up for rent at MYR10 per hour. And for the four or six-seaters, it cost around MYR40-50 per hour. They also has some battery-powered toy car ride for younger children at higher rate at MYR25 per half-an-hour.

The kids have awesome time cycling around and requested to make another trip the next day!

Now, we have found a lovely place and lovely way to spend our time together as a family the next time we make a trip back to our in-law's house. Hopefully this can create more togetherness and memories besides glueing on gadgets! 

How is your Raya break folks? Hope it has been awesome for you and family too.

Cheers!

AFT session with Claudia Hofmaier

Hi folks!

Ever since I started exploring, using and sharing about essential oils, i have made a lot of friends a.k.a the "oilers" who are very passionate about health, healing and taking care of our body naturally. Some of these friends are certified aromatherapist, certified massage therapist and some have taken some certification courses in the field of aromatherapy due to their strong interest and keen passion to help others to participate in the journey towards health and abundance. 

During my recent cruise trip, I got to know Claudia Hofmaier, who is a certified Aroma Freedom Practitioner and Instructor and managed to have a one-to-one AFT online session with her.




I have spoke about Aroma Freedom Technique (AFT) before in my previous post, but i must say i have not been very consistent in practicing it. However, each time i felt some emotional blockages, or feeling my body is not feeling quite right or have some blockages or discomfort, i would make time after shower to practice AFT alone in the room(my much treasured ME time).

Long story cut short, i always have a sense of release and also a clearer mind after the AFT session and i sleep better too.

During this one-to-one session with my friend, Claudia, i was led(or facilitated) by her during the entire AFT process to set my intention, understand how i feel about my intention and also to clear the blockages or the negative emotions i have attached with my intention.

My intention:
1. To MANIFEST the BEST of me (to achieve my goal set for Dec 2017)

Negative voices:
1. How would others look at me?
2. Are you sure you've got what it takes to do this?

Physical:
1. Feeling my shoulder and back very heavy (burden) - all sorts of negatives voices inside my mind
2. Feeling my heart shrinking - confidence level
3. Feeling a pressure in the middle of my back - how others look at me

Intention scale started at 3 and ended with 8.5 (after 3 rounds of going through the negative emotions i had, each time feeling how my body react to the negative voices within me).

I feel really good(no more backache, heavy chest and feeling caged and my heart felt expanded) after the session although i know i still have to put some plans into action to achieve what I intend to do. I have to remember all the positive messages that i received during the AFT session to remind myself to charge forward:

Messages:
1. Do not be concerned with how others look at you, whatever things we wish to do there're always pros and cons, there're always different views from people around us.
2. Just DO it, keep it going, U can do it!
3. Just DO it the RIGHT way!

Oils used during AFT:
Frankinsence, StressAway, Lavender

You can also add on essential oils blends like Transformation, Inner Child and Clarity.
Interested to get these essential oils for your own emotional release? Leave me a comment or sign up here to get these oils at wholesale price to start your journey to abundance of health and wellness!

This session just proves to me once more on how emotional blockage can hinder us to act accordingly to our Best and Truest self and also causes physical discomfort at the same time.

So, from now on, i have to take some time off in the morning and evening to do AFT daily for the next 21 days or daily till i reach the goal i have set for myself! Yes, I can do it! You can too! Just take some time off to think of what you intend to do/improve in your life today and take the action....JUST DO IT!

We are the only one who can make the change on what we intend to improve in our lives! 

Hope everyone can join me on this journey of releasing that emotional blockage and charge forward with much joy and energy!



Cheers and Selamat Hari Raya to all Muslims friends and also to those who are celebrating! Have a lovely reunion time with yourself and with your closed ones....

Housework and back pain

Hi folks!

How was your Father's Day celebration last weekend?

Last weekend, I had gone bit "too much" in doing housework for 2-hr non-stop before meeting my dad for breakfast, lifting heavy stuff, mopping,vacuuming, scrubbing (you know when the mood is ON and you just kept carrying on non-stop 😅) and also carrying my 4-year-old for hours when we went shopping in the mall with my dad to celebrate Father's Day. As my husband was away last weekend(usually he's the one who do the carrying when my son is tired of walking..yeah we should have used a stroller...) anyway long story cut short, I suffered from terrible back pain thereafter. 

So after shower, I got my daughter to apply Young Living essential oil blend called Deep Relief for me. And 2 hours later, I got my husband to reapply for me and I went to bed early. 



Next day when I woke up, my back pain was gone and I am able to resume my daily jogging without pain. Marvellous oils!

Now, that makes me curious to find out what's the exact content of Deep Relief, I know it contains my favourite peppermint and Helichrysum...:
Ingredients:
Peppermint, Coconut Oil, Idaho Balsam Fir, Clove, Vetiver, Wintergreen, Lemon, Helichrysum, Copaiba, Dorado Azul.

Ah..no wonder, Clove, the natural painkiller, wintergreen, something really good for muscle pain..Dorazul Azul, one of the ingredients for first aid spray,cooling and soothing.. Copaiba, awesome for anti-inflammatory properties, Vetiver that reduces tiredness and etc all nicely diluted with coconut oil.  

Thankful for this Deep Relief..saved my day yet again!

No wonder my mom loves this oil and been using her third bottles!

Folks, I would strongly encourage you to get this oil for your loved ones who are suffering from pains, joint pains, etc..or even those going for travelling..a must-have in your bag!

Leave me a comment if you need me to get this for you. I would be more than happy to assist you to get one too ❤️ 

Or, if you wish to get the Young Living products yourself at wholesale price, you can also sign up as member by clicking on this link.

Cheers to a painless and carefree days folks! Now back to my jogging :)


Note: I am a member of Young Living and loved using the essential oils and sharing all the goodness it has brings to my family to everyone too! Thanks for reading and blessing our family!

Need some ideas for Father's Day?

Hi folks!

Yesterday I attended a talk on Me and My Hormones and learnt a great deal on how stress, nutrition and exercise affects our health and hormones. I also learnt what we can do to walk ourselves gracefully through PMS.

Now, do men suffer from PMS too? Do you noticed the mood swings when comes to certain age too? Do you see the denial, stubbornness or hiding into the caves more often than not or the sharp pain in their heart that "ignited" from the stress and burden on their shoulder of late?

Of course they do and they too needed to do some clearance of toxins in their life and some "pampering" too by eating well and living well cos they deserved it being the hero in our home, donning the superhero cloak for so long..why I said "pampering" cos I find most men would sacrifice themselves and only want the best for their family and often overlooked their own needs too.

I been making(and bought for my dad) oats daily for my men at home ever since the cholesterol reading is on the high side and he's been very cooperative for his love for our family..yes we want him to be there to witness our children growing, graduating and walk to the aisle..one step at a time..ladies let's do our part and gentlemen...just enjoy the love and "pampering" or take the action to take care of yourselves too!

Here's some nice stuff dedicated to the hero in our lives.

Enjoy and feel free to buzz me(as I am a member and able to get them at member price) if you like to get any of the items above for your superhero at home or you can also sign up as member yourselves clicking on this link.

Cheers and Happy Father's Day to all superhero daddies!

Sat mini adventures with kiddoes

Hi folks!

This month is a busy month both at work and at home with Products releases coming and KY ballet competition approaching..

Even though it's school holiday, we haven't have any chance to bring the kids anyway. Have wanted to bring the kids to take LRT to visit their grandparents('cos mommy lazy to drive)...but in-laws were equally busy with weddings and stuff.

So I end up bringing them nearby doing something we don't usually do together.

We went shopping/hunting KY's ballet competition stuff, have dinner@Simple Life, and making use of my Birthday GSC vouchers watching The Boss Baby with kids.

At first worried if we could get a parking at the busy peak hour. But once I entered the parking lot, for the very first time being ushered by the guard to the "Pink" Reserved for Ladies Parking slot*yey*

Yummy Nutri Noodle Soup

Hi folks!

When I used to stay with my in-laws, she would boil soup with red dates, black dates, tong kuai and tungshen to replenish our blood and Qi after our monthly "Aunty visit".

Now, I continued with the tradition by adding these herbs in my cooking. Always feel awesome and great after a nourishing soup like this.

What do you make or do after your menses to recuperate and replenish the much needed blood and Qi? Care to share?


Cheers to a healthy days ahead!

Days with DIY Laundry

Hi Folks!

How much I missed washing and hanging out laundry out under the sun ..and not having to search for coins to pay for my DIY Laundry.

Lately my wet kitchen where my washing machine is located is having drainage issue, thus each time I washed my plates or laundry, the entire floor get flooded.

Now I had to wait for people to fix it before I can start doing any proper cooking or even wash my laundry at home.

Even though I often lamented on the amount of laundry I need to wash being mom of 3, now I cherish the fact that I am able to do it at home without needing to pay MYR30 each trip of DIY Laundry. It cost me around RM20++ to wash + RM8 to dry my 3 days worth of laundry..phew..that could come up to quite a bit of money!

Wished my plumbing man come by and save me from this trip soon!

So folks, enjoy your wishy washy days!

Cheers!

No matter in what field and which role we are playing, whether as a Stay-At-Home-Mom(SAHM), CEO, IT support staff, taxi drivers or even tea lady, we all marvels and stay "alive", fresh", "inspired" and "motivated" when we put on our creative caps and create something new, implement the ideas from our mind. It just makes us feel excited, alive and enthusiast once more.

Therefore, in the midst of our daily routine work, never forget to inject some so-called experiment, research and development and exploration of our ideas. It is what fuel us to continue our journey in life, exploring our adventures being a human.

Hunting for affordable running shoes

Hi folks!

I have another bucket list to check off this year that is to regain my energy and one of it is to by getting back on my running regime. As the sayings go, "Use it or Lose it!". If we stop pushing our body and making it work, it will then start to work less and there goes our energy level plummeted drastically.

And as I wore my running shoes after lying there lonely at the shoe cabinet and only see sunshine once in awhile, the base of the shoes gave way and I have to start my shoe hunting expedition.

And wow, never do I learnt so much about running shoes hunting.

Below are some of the tips I've got.
1. Check the expiry date from the labels.




From the label, you can see the manufacturing date of the shoes, in this pic it is Feb 2016. So this can be a guide if you do wish to get those shoes during sales. So check the manufacturing date if you don't wish to end up with old shoes that is not wearable few weeks down the road!

2. Base of the shoes
There are so many different technology used in each brands of good running shoes, we have gel type, cushioning, etc. If you are going to run 10km versus 42km, versus treadmill runs, all these requires different type of designs. For me as I will be starting with a 10km run on the road, I need to get something with 3-layer base with good grip for support and steady grip.




3. Where to get great deals?
My brother who is a serious runner shared with me a place called Mitsui Outlet near KLIA where we can usually get a good deal for many brands. However it might not be the latest model and might not have the size you want but definitely the price will be lesser than other places.

I do surf online to compare prices but I am someone who needs to wear the physical shoes before I feel confident buying it. So I went to SportsDirect Outlet and tested all sorts of brands and finally shortlisted 3. From the three models, I checked the price online and finally made my purchase at SportsDirect during their store wide 20% sales! Their salesperson is very helpful, patience and knowledgeable where I got many tips and advice as a newbie. I would definitely be back there with my kids to choose their sports gear!




So that's it folks! I've got my shoes and all ready to hit on the road! Are you ready?

Cheers to a healthy and fruitful holiday ahead!

(Sorry folks, this is a repost test to fix the formatting of the previous blog post And no, this is my own personal experience and did not get any payment from SportsDirect :) )

KindMeal.my app and Veggie World Cafe

Hi folks!

When DH and I were in our dating days, he used to drive me everywhere to hunt for lovely vegetarian meals and eateries (both of us are vegetarian since in our early teens).

After we got married with young children, we are limited with fewer and nearer baby-friendly places. Now that the kids are older, we are back to supporting and also having fun trying out lovely vegetarian meals around us.

And with the KindMeal.my app, it make it more economical to try out the plant-based meals for our family of five.

Our recent try out is at Veggie World cafe located at Bandar Kinrara(near Giant Kinrara) and the food are not bad at all! And the best thing is they have plenty of parking and it's not as crowded as the one we used to patron near our house.

Safer alternatives for my ballerina

Hi folks!

What makes me switch into safer alternatives in terms of medical, household products and next to skincare..my children..they are my biggest love and drive.

When my ballerina daughter started trying out nail polish(oh yes..kids grow up fast!) and checking my stash of make-ups, skincare and things like make-up remover and lipsticks after their performance...I started getting jittery of the chemical-laden lipsticks and all...

Thus, I started checking out safer alternatives for them. Yesterday she had a photo shoot for her ballet studio and came home with lovely yet hard to clean eye-liner etc..and I used the following to clean for her..voila! It cleans off easily and no harsh chemical 👍💕

Good to start them young on safer alternatives so they make a better choice and are less exposed to those chemicals..
