His Dream City

My older boy has an American Dream. He wants to go there one day to work and to stay. He is just so obsessed with NY.

One fine day, when he brother is away.  Boredom sets in. He took a drawing paper and started drawing for hours.

Aiyo....so blur.
Then he told me he wanted to paint the picture. I said NOooooo...you'll spoil it with paint. Use oil pastel, colour pencil, crayon, magic ink......but not water colour. The figures are so tiny , how to paint????

He ignored his silly mom. And did what he wanted. Tara............

I have to say I admire his patience. I can't do this for sure.

Handmade Bookmark

It has been a long time since I was able to make any jewellery or bookmark. I miss my hobby but just do not have time to resume.....without a maid.

The last bookmark which I quickly churned for a friend because I've no idea what to give her when she invited me and some old schoolmates for dinner. Gifts has always been a headache for me. As for myself , if I invite anyone , I don't expect gifts else I have to worry what to give in return. The same as giving somebody something, I've totally no expectation of returns and I like it that way. Just be a graceful receiver and a graceful giver.

This friend of mine, she is far more affluent than me. There is nothing I can buy which she cannot afford. So besides bringing some rocher chocs for her kids , I added this little bookmark.

I remember making a quite a number for my kids' teachers and friends when I was more hardworking and they loved them ( the friends I mean)...not sure about the teachers though. Some even reminded my kid to ask me to make them a bookmark for their birthday....Well....Ask and It Shall Be Given.

Teeth Grinding

Teeth Grinding in kids, bruxism
image source : http://grandslamsmiles.com/blog/teeth-grinding-in-children/

If you have been following this blog, you would know that my older kid has lots of health problems....big and small.

One of the nagging issue that would occassionally stress me up is his tooth grinding also known as bruxism. Almost every night , the sound from his teeth gnashing at each other for a few minutes can be really alarming. For kids, this is a normal but for a teenager who is 15 by now, this can be quite worrying.

The dentist couldn't do anything besides suggesting mouth guard when he is older and also to keep stress at bay. Eh howlah to keep stress at bay? He grinds his teeth whether stressful or not.

Sometimes I forget about his problem because he no longers sleeps in the same room as us. But whenever we go back to our hometown, we put up in a big room in my parents' home. Then I would be reminded of his teeth grinding problem.

But recently I realised when I go to his room early in the morning to off his air-cond ( because I am a cheapscate) , I don't hear him grinding teeth anymore.  Just last week when we 'balik kampong' , for the 1st night, I realised he didn't grind his teeth at all. How do I know? I am a light sleeper.

The next night I heard him grind like 3 times....it goes 'krak, krak, krak'. Then it stopped. Previously it would have been something like this "krak krak krak krak.." repeated multiple times so much so that I have to wake him up to stop him from grinding. I was advised my by dentist friend to change his sleeping position but that didn't helped. I strongly believed he is beginning to outgrow this problem. PTL.

At the same time, I am also wondering  whether the Izumio and Super Lutein is responsible. It can't be so many "coindences" ever since he started this product.  Still I just want to thank the Lord....too many issues here and there and I am ever so grateful to be able to strike off one item of my worry list!

Nowadays, it is hard to catch him grinding his teeth. Those days it was hard to catch him NOT grinding his teeth.

The Bread Story

Last night was our ( me and hubby) duty to collect bread from a bakery in Taman Danau Desa to be delivered to the Myammar Kids in Cheras. Thank God for generous businessman who week after week provided us with free bread in abundance so that the kids can have bread the next morning.

We are asked to be there earlier than usual. The bread was passed to us earlier than usual which pleased me because sometimes we have to wait for half and hour for them to pack , sign and transport to our car ( this we do ourselves). However, when I look at the number of bags of bread we had last night....my heart dropped. Only 4 bags from the usual 7-8 bags. Maybe because it is due to the long Raya holidays so the bakery did not produce much.

Still , I am thankful there is bread for the children.....hopefully just enough for the 150 children hosted by a Church. Bless the pastors and workers there.

If we look around , there is so much we can do in a small way. There are so many needy people around us, even if we can just give them a moment of good memory to cherish, it may change their lives.

Ps 143 : 10
Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing.

Home Made French Fries

My picky son loves French Fries. He's always pestering me to get the fries from McDonald's.

So I decided to make my own. I googled for some videos and finally decided on one. Bless the internet.....Certainly not as good as McDonald's but probably healthier....actually not much healthier with all those oils yeuwks! McDonald's fries has some corn syrup coated on them.  Mine is just potato, salt and oil.

Looks dry right? But it is crunchy outside and soft inside. When my boy invited a dozen of his friends over the last time, they grabbed the fries as if they have not eaten for days. All kids like fries...but not my elder son. I think I need a air-fryer..to reduce the consumption of oil.

RM20 Coat?

My boy is having a concert after the Raya holidays. He has 2 roles in this concert. One is being the 'narrator' for his class's sketch and another being one of the MCs.

So his teacher asked him to wear a coat. Coat? Wah...I don't want to make him a coat just for this. So he told his teacher...Coat is expensive. His teacher told him...not expensive, can get one for RM20.

RM20???? Where? Tell me? He is just 13..and I don't want to rent one for like hundred over bucks just for 2 nights.

I have working coat...loads of them but style perempuanlah!!! He is literally swimming in his dad's coat!

Anyone know where I can get a RM20 coat for a petite teenager, let me know ya! his teacher said, go look at MidValley and Times Square. You tell me, places like this can find RM20 coat meh??????

Maybe some second hand shop. OK...I go google now.

Update : I managed to get something for my kid after all. All thanks to my friend. Well, not RM20 but RM33.90 (coat + pants) ! Still way below my budget.

Izumio, Super Lutein really work?

My 2 boys have been taking the above products for general maintenance. Actually, I was hoping their eyesight would improve.

During the first few days, my elder son's palm became very sweaty. Now he always had sweaty palm , although not so bad as those that I read in news, but still not like normal people. Sometimes I am scared to hold his hand because the sweat is so 'geli'. It happens on and off. So I was so surprised when the day was not even hot, suddenly he was sweating so much on his palm ( unusual amount compared to his usual sweaty palm). My this son has lots of health issues from young that some of this issues are overshadowed by the big ones . Is this detox? I  sure hope so.  Well the sweaty palm still happens but less frequent but that 'huge amount of sweat' was an isolated case. Just 2 days ago, his palm was sweaty again, he said it was a hot day. Told him to take a pack of Izumio and after that I checked with him , he said he is not sweating anymore. Sure hope something is working in him.

Other than that...pimples!!! Uuuuurgh...you know the teenage pimples years? It was coming out , going away, coming out, going away a never ending cycle. Took him to sinseh, after 1 month I stopped cos not only is it not getting better , I just didn't like him drinking the awful liquids with so many tablets. Afterall he hated the liquid.

Now he pimples seems to be getting better. There is still pimple near his eyes to forehead and a few at cheeks. Previously almost the whole cheek is 'peppered with pimples'...almost have no more parking space. Really hope this is for good and not another round God Knows What. Good thing SL capsules has no ordour and easy to swallow. He doesn't mind at all.

He also went for a scan for his spine ( scoliosis) and that day after taking Izumio, he has 4 bowel movements after the X-Ray. So geng meh?  That was the only time it happened. Now if only this product help straighten his spine, I will let the whole world know. You will never understand the anguish of a mom who has a child with spine problem.  So much of $$$$ flowing out of our pockets and yet not having any definite answer to the problem.

Other than that, he doesn't go to the doctors for years now.  However he is very prone to cough.  If the cough/bug flu is around, he will be the first one to catch it. But we don't see doctor's for this cos his dad can take care of this issue.

So far...haven't caught the bug flu yet! (9 weeks of I IZ and 3 SL daily)

As for my younger kid, he is basically very healthy despite being very picky...like really picky. Can't eat pau, pizza, lor mai kai, corn, green peas, siu mai and everythinglah.
Just like his brother, he is also four-eyed. Really broke my heart .. this one, cos he is a sportsman.  Used to represent school for badminton and also active on sports day for treks i.e cross country, relay. Loves football ....now specky ..so inconvenient.

He had however one tiny issue. He used to get redness near the ends of his mouth corners. Almost like lack of nutrients. Happens almost every other week. So far, I haven't seen it  till now.
 ( 9 weeks of 1/2 IZ, and 3 SL).

And he really loves the IZ, but poor thing due to cost have to share with his mom -1/2 packet!!!

Really work meh, this product? Well, the observation seems encouraging but need more time to tell.But this product definetely worked for my dad. It works for me too.

Parents Teachers Conference

Last Saturday, I went to my younger boy's PTA. Reached about 8:15 am (they start at 8 am), took a number and my eyes almost popped out ....No 16!

Hubby decided to wait in the car as parking was scarce. Told him to go back first as it may take a while. Still ....he didn't listen.

Anyway, I went to the auditorium and saw about 4 parents waiting there. I was so pleased , thought this should be a breeze. Most likely the other parents have gone down to the cafeteria. 

There was a parent in session which the teacher. I saw the teacher blah blah blah, then the parent blah blah blah and they took turns blah...ing like forever. Finally it ended, then the next parent and the same thing happened again. So much to talk meh???

Suddenly another two parents came and join the queue. Okayyyyyy....they must have taken the number earlier, enjoyed their breakfast at cafeteria, calculate the perfect timing. So each time when one or two parents left another few would turn up. Aiyo...no harapan to cut short my trip lah!!

After waiting for freaking 1.5 hours, it was finally my turn, the teacher blah blah blah, I blah blah blah, the teacher blah blah blah...then ok ...signed....kau tim!!!! Wah how come the teacher has nothing to say to me wor....Anyway, she was pleased with my boy both in academic and character but I was not. My boy's mark was short change by 7 marks. Normally, I won't quite bother but the last time he was short changed by 3 marks, I just close one eye...next exam 10 marks meh?????. I was not happy not because so much about marks but how come these things also can't do right ? Not like they have lots of students. This is private school okay? I never had this problem with my elder son in not so famous SMK school. Anyway, life goes on and I told my boy to go speak to his teacher about this. I am not asking for marks but please be fairlah...give him what's due to him at least in the near future. Of course once they 'locked' the results , it can't be changed. Just want the teacher to be aware, don't do this too often.

After leaving the audi, found out that hubby who was still waiting in the car couldn't get out because 2 other cars blocked our way. Told him not to wait now  see what happens when he doesn't listen to his wife??

Went to see the guard, make annoucement, waited for 15 minutes no soul in sight. Really tak boleh tahan edi, told my hubby to take the train home first as my elder son has class in an hour's time and who knows how long we are going to be stuck there!

Waited for another 5 minutes, still no bayang, went to complain to a different guard now. He came saw the car and said , the car belong to the other building, not student's parents. He called the building manager ( who have seen the car earlier) and told him , it's his people lah! Finally, another 10 minutes then the driver came. Aiyo, why can't they put their contact there since they are blocking people's car? We always have a big paper printout in our car in case we inevitably need to block other people's car especially when parking space are scarce. So far never used it yet...but people pleaselah be responsible.

That leads me to another irritating habit that often drives me crazy. Haphazard parking! Parking at junction and block other driver's view.  Parking at double lot...oh gosh can afford to buy nice modern sophisticated luxury car but don't know how to park properly ?  Parking right in the middle of the road when other cars are queuing behing expecting us to wait not 1 or 2 minutes but 5???? No sense of responsibility...mother never teach meh!!!!

Okay....don't know why I am in so bad mood today.

Izumio Hidrogen Water

What is hydrogenized water?
Hydrogenized water refers to water which is rich in hydrogen.

IZUMIO contains not only a high concentration of dissolved hydrogen, but also minerals.
With IZUMIO Hydrogenized Drinking Water, taking hydrogen into our bodies has never been easier.
Hydrogen has a simple atomic structure consisting of one proton and one electron, and is the smallest element in the universe

Hydrogen is the world’s oldest and most efficient antioxidant - See the work of Dr. Patrick Flanagan and read the study showing hydrogen as an antioxidant.

Hydrogen stops the oxidative chain reaction sequence. It reduces oxidation which leads to aging and disease.  The hydrogen eliminates almost 75% active oxygen in our body which is the key factor towards aging, it is able to neutralize our body acidity and produces hydrogen that acts as a powerful antioxidant. Besides, it changes the water structure for optimum absorption and mineralized water for delivery of vital nutrients. 

IZUMIO - Antioxidant Hydrogen Water

Izumio contains the highest dissolved hydrogen concentration using water which is the major content of human body to transport large volume of Active Hydrogen to reach every cell to remove Free Radical. Hydrogen molecules, the smallest atom in the world, can penetrate into all narrow corners in the body. Its swiftness & effectiveness are unbeatable among the general anti-oxidant supplements or supplement water in the market. Active hydrogen is able to prevent proliferation of cancerous cell and cause the death of cancerous cells. Izumio is a health supplement water which can be taken by anyone, mixed with anything and be taken at anytime. 

How did Izumio come about?

  Source : http://www.eyecarelutein.com/izumio.html

Miracle water found in these 4 specific locations - Lourdes in France, Tlacote in Mexico, 
Nodenau in Germany and Hunzas In Northern Pakistan described as being able to cure hundreds of diseases and has attracted millions of drinkers. Tlacote, Mexico, is visited by more than 10,000 people daily. 

Wayne Peterson of Washington DC reported that his father had been diagnosed with intestinal cancer, which had eaten holes through his intestines. His father took some of the water from the Tlacote well for several days. A visit to a new group of doctors only days later showed there was no evidence of cancer and all body functions appeared to be normal.  The word has spread, and since May 1991, millions of people have been to Tlacote and millions more have drunk the water, seeking help for diabetes, heart disease, cancer, AIDS, obesity and high cholesterol. After the miraculous healing well was discovered in Mexico, two more sources of healing water have been found. One is in Germany, 100 km east of Dusseldorf, the other is in the village of Nadana, 150 km north of Delhi, in India.

In year 2002, a reporter from Japan TBS TV Network, for the Japanese Documentary program, USO, managed to bring some of the "miracle" water back to Japan, to be analyzed in Kyushu University, Prof. Shirahata's Research Laboratory. The final results concluded that the Lourdes "Miracle Water", contained high concentration of "Hydrogen Molecules"
