Lovely thing that soothe a crying baby on board


Hi folks!

During my last flight back from London(> 13-hour flight), there was this cool mommy whose baby was crying non-stop for quite sometime while many of us are trying to catch our forty winks. 

Somehow it works like yawning, another baby started crying too and it's not helping that the plane which was delayed and we were kept in the plane for more than 2 hours due to some medical emergency(one of the passenger was fainted) without proper meals and feeling really tired.

Suddenly my friend nudge me and ask, "Do you have anything for the passenger?". I suddenly recalled how I usually calm my baby in the middle of the night when he has crying fits, Peace and Calming Young Living essential blend. And I recalled I had brought along two sachet for this trip as I was on a cruise and thought it would be helpful to have it on board.

Long story cut short, I turned to the passenger next to me to asked to be excused(I am sitting right in the middle in a row of 3-seats) so that I could walk over to the mommy to offer the Peace and Calming essential oil blend. I offered to her and telling her how to use it and went back to my seat. Now, not knowing if she would even try it, I just prayed inside my heart and if she did give it a try, hopefully it would help to calm her baby. Then minutes later, the baby did stopped crying. I didn't know until the passenger next to me asked me,"What have you offered to the mom? She gave a two-thumbs-up!"

Feeling all relieved and grateful, I then shared with the passenger sitting next to me from Denmark about the essential oil and how much it has helped my family. She in turned told me that she's using essential oil too to help her to sleep better. So I searched in my bag and found a sachet of lavender essential oil and gave it to her and at the end of the flight she thanked me for a good nap with the Young Living lavender essential oil.

Very glad to the oils, I made some new friends and also grateful we got a restful nap throughout the flight!

What to do during long haul flight?

Hi folks!

What do you do during your long haul flights besides sleeping/taking long naps? For me, I made full use of the on-board entertainment by watching movies as well as chat with the passenger that was sitting beside me!

I rarely have chance to sit down for hours watching movies or television 📺. However, during this trip (more than 9 hrs each flight), I managed to watched a couple of movies. One of them is this movie called Dolphin Tale.

It's really a very nice movie. Suitable for kids and parents alike! I learnt how as a parent we should listen, observe and learn to be out-of-the-norm parents who only cares about homework, exams, etc for our kids. We should also see what catches their interest and what makes them ticked!

In this story, the little boy was well into a life changing experience of his life only when his mom supported him rather than stopping him! And such supportive mom she is!

Travelling trip for newbies Part I- Luggage

Hi folks!

I have heard and read a great deal (only after my trip!) and I wished to put it down here as my own reminder as well as to share with all my readers/ friends.

After our flight from London-Kuala Lumpur was delayed by 3 hrs due to some medical emergencies (our first time being in such long haul flight- more than 24hours from US-London-Kuala Lumpur) on board due to a rather elderly passenger who said to have fainted on board. (Note: More tips about this later on what to do if stucked on a delayed or in-between connecting flight.), upset upon reaching home after about 2+9+16hours(instead of 13hr) flight, we spent another 1 1/2hour trying to wait and locate our luggage.

To our dismay, our luggage has decided to extend its holiday@London. So off we go to report for our delayed(praying that it's only delayed and not Lost!) luggage with Malaysian Airlines and was told that the luggage will be delivered to us the next day(without mentioning when).

After checking online about delayed and lost luggage (this topic seems to be tied together), we found out the following tips which is helpful for people travelling especially with few connecting flight!
1. Always keep the receipt of the luggage you have bought and brought along to the trip in your handbag or with your important documents
Otherwise if your luggage is damaged, they will only pay you half of less if the price you've paid for you luggage!

2. Always keep receipts of the items/contents (souvenirs, clothes,etc) in your luggage. They need these items when you need to claim for lost luggage(pray not!) along with your important documents like boarding pass and passport. I have placed mine in the souvenir bags in the luggage *facepalm*

3. Keep your boarding passes and stick the luggage sticker on your boarding passes as these are needed when you are making report for lost/delayed luggage to the airline and to your travel insurance

4. Know your travel insurance and also your rights as a passenger to the airline you've bought your flight ticket.
I found out that for delayed luggage that hasn't arrived more than 24 hours after we reached our destination, the airline needs to compensate a certain amount based on your ticket type (namely: economy, business or first class; refer example in the picture enclosed)

5. Snap a picture of the contents of your luggage before you begin your flight/locked your luggage. This serves as proof and reminders of what consist in your luggage.

Now, seasoned travellers..do you anything to add-on/share? Would love to hear from you!

Cheers!

What? Jetlag? No way!

Hi folks!

Remember I mentioned about my quest to try out natural way to combat jetlag - http://secondtimeparenthood.blogspot.my/2017/03/essentials-for-travelling.html?m=1

I just came back to my long haul flight(altogether 16hr+ 9hr+ 2hr= 27hrs excluding the waiting time in between the transit waiting for our connection flight!), and guess what..no feeling of jetlag at all(I've applied AromaEase essential oil on the back of my ears before my flight!)..after reaching home at around 12.30pm, it's back to my usual mommy duty of bringing my dad cum temporary babysitter during my trip away with my DH(this is our third couple trip together after more than 3 years!) and kids for lunch, sending my dad home to his home-sweet-home after minding my kids for the past few days at my house, running over to pickup my precious Eucalyptus Radiata and Valor II (it's been out of stock for the longest time and just got restocked on Mon and I managed to place an order online while I was in US using the occasionally working well wifi connection@the cruise 🚢) and reached home around 4.30pm; slept for an hour and a half before resuming to prepare dinner for the kids, hearing their updates for the past few days during our absence and clearing the laundry and dirty dishes, attending a meeting before finally getting my zzz at 11.55pm, back to work the next day, followed with preparing for KY ballet exam ..all is well and mom of 3 has no time for jetlag!
