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!

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.

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 👍

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!

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.
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!

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.

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 🙏

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!

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.
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.
1. To MANIFEST the BEST of me (to achieve my goal set for Dec 2017)
1. How would others look at me?
2. Are you sure you've got what it takes to do this?
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:
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.

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.
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....

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*

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!
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!
