Capsicum Slices With Herbs & Spices Cheese Dip

Today Cass and I shared a portion of takeout bitter gourd vermicelli with minced meat. Alycia and Sherilyn had to stay back in school.

On most days, I will wait for Cass and Sherilyn to be back from school to have a late lunch with them at around 2:15pm. At around noon, I will have something light to stave off hunger. Most of the time,  I will snack on  salad, nuts, sugar-free yoghurt or some fruits.

Today, my salad of the day is sliced sweet capsicum with Arla herbs and spices fresh cheese.  I used green and purple capsicums.

Tomorrow I am going to the supermarket to stock up my supply of capsicums. I am currently hooked on capsicums! :)

Did you know that capsicums also come in purple, brown and white color?  I'll bet you didn't know that eh?  I saw the white variety at the supermarket for the first time in my life today.

Treating Jaw Joint Pain Naturally With Hydrogen Water And Carotenoids


Today I had a chat with my mum on Facebook Messenger.   She then casually mentioned to me about the pain that she experienced on her jaw joint a few days ago.  My mum will turn 70 years old in September this year.


I've something to share regarding the goodness of Izumio and Super Lutein. Two days ago I experienced extreme left jaw joint pain which kept me awake the whole night! Since I couldn't sleep I decided to get up (5am) and drank I packet of  Izumio.
I then Google searched to find out what kind of doctor to see as soon as clinic opens for the day. Either see dentist for possible tooth or gum infection or orthopaedic surgeon who may take X-ray of the jaw bone.
Chewing, swallowing, coughing and even smiling was a torture! Thought it could be mumps but no swelling.
When informed, worried Papa quickly made a big pot of rice porridge for all my meals on Monday!
I faithfully drank packets and packets of Izumio (lost count!) and took 2 or 3 Super Lutein (also lost count) because I was really desperate and refused to consult dentist or doctor.
Know what happened then? At the end of the day, the jaw pain just miraculously disappeared!

Thank God and thank Izumio and Super Lutein!

Sunday Night Lazy Dinner - 24 April 2016

We hardly cook during the weekend.  Saturday nights are eat out nights and Sunday nights are take-away nights.

On Sundays, after lunch outside, we normally take-away pizza (for the kids' sake. I don't fancy pizzas unless I make them myself and put ingredients that I like), sushi, fried rice or fried noodles.  Well, basically anything that is easy to heat up, eat and wash up.  I am lazy I know!

Here's our takeout dinner last Sunday:

Hawaiian pizza, Korean fried chicken drum sticks and Korean grilled chicken.  These are for the girls.  The mil made a simple fried rice with ginger, eggs and Chinese sausage for herself and me.  I also had a cup of sugar-free Hersheys cocoa with oats, ground almond, coconut oil and skim milk.

Vegetables of the day - cool sliced kyuri and red and green sweet capsicums.



Healthy Home-Cooked Dishes

If you cook everyday, I am sure you are always running out of idea on what to cook. When the MIL is around, this stress is off my shoulders :D

However, whenever she is overseas, I will always be sitting in front of my computer, googling for easy-to-cook recipes. If you follow my blogs, I am sure you know by now  that I am not someone who loves to cook or bake :D

Put it simply, I am  not one who loves food (but I married a man who is a foodie and comes from a family who hearts food) but I cook for the love of my precious angels.

If you are looking for new dishes to surprise your family, you can try the following easy and wholesome dishes:

Below:
Braised organic Japanese pumpkin with pork / chicken slices and dried shrimps.
Stir-fried assortment of vegetables.  We have celery, yellow capsicum, red capsicum, Shimeiji mushrooms and fish cakes, stir-fried with garlic and onions.

Happy cooking! ;)

Today is maid-less day :(

Absolutely hate it when our part-time helper does not come on a day that I am  busy. The girls' exams are still on-going and tonight will be another vomit-blood + hair-pulling session with them (Sherilyn and Cass).  Alycia's first term exam will be held next week and spread over a period of 2 weeks. She is pretty independent and can do revisions on her own but still needs nagging and pushing.

The mil has gone shopping and I have asked her to take-away fried rice and noodles from Din Tai Fung for dinner.

Once I am done with this post, I'll be off to some chores-xercise around the house! I hate mopping the floor, yet I do it everyday simply because I hate dirt! Darn the OCD in me *AARGH*!!!

Old Is Gold - Card Games

When we were back in Ipoh for Qing Ming two weekends ago, my mum unearthed some of the card games that my brothers and I used to play with, over 3 decades ago!

My mum's a real good keeper of our books, toys and clothes.  Some of these cards games are not available for sale now and can only be purchased from a toy museum.





While Alycia and Sherilyn spent their afternoon at the Ipoh Swimming Club with their grand aunts and cousins, I stayed home with Cass and we played all the card and board games that I used to play with when I was her age -- Old Maid, Beggar My Neighbor, Happy Families, Snakes And Ladders, chess, Black Jack and Go Fish using a deck of Playing Cards.  The weather in Ipoh was hotter than KL and we stayed indoor with the air-conditioner turned on all day, enjoying our good old board and card games :)

Our Sunday - 10 April 2016

We spent out Sunday morning at Low Yat Plaza shopping for computer and mobile phone accessories.  It was my first time at Low Yat Plaza;  I was thrilled and floored  to see the legion of computers, mobile phones and multitudinous supply of accessories at the shops within the complex. With every shop selling almost the same goods, there is so much competition and bargain for shoppers to get the best priced electrical item.

The prices of goods at the shops that we went to were very reasonable.   The Hello Kitty Samsung mobile phone cover that hubs got for me was priced at RM19.90 with a RM12 discount off the item! Now, that's a real steal! No where could we get such a nice mobile phone cover at that price.






Hubs  got us a new speaker, web cam, pen drives, chargers, phone covers and iPad cover.




These two keyboards with neon colored keys caught my eyes. I wanted to get one of them but it wasn't too long ago that hubs got me a new wireless keyboard.  No way would he get me a new one. But you know what? The next day, my wireless keyboard had a faulty key, all of a sudden, as if it knew that I wanted to disown it to get a new one!  Perhaps hubs would get me the neon color keyboard should he make another trip to Low Yat Plaza :D











After shopping, we had a sumptuous lunch of dim sum at Lai Ching Yuen Chinese Restaurant @ Millennium Hotel with hubs' aunts, uncles and cousins.





















Below - our girls monkeying around with a Face Swap app with their young aunts (hubs' has cousins aged 8 through 20s) and had tons and tons of guffaw and cackle.

My 43rd Birthday

My 43rd birthday on 29 March 2016 was a pretty quiet, low-key affair.

The hubs wanted to bring us to Mid Valley Megamall for dinner but it was a school-going day.  So I suggested going to a nearby cafe. We went to our favorite cafe, Red Kettle and had a quick dinner.

My birthday pressie from the hubs was claimed about a week later, when I had the time to shop for it when the girls were at school.  I prefer getting gifts this way as I get to buy something that I like vs a surprise, which is more often than not something that I don't really use or like. I am practical like that.

There was no big and fanciful cake as we always end up giving away three quarter of the cake to friends, tutor, our part-time helper and guards at our condo.  No wastage this time. It was a slice of carrot walnut cake with cream cheese from my favorite cafe :)





The best gift this year is from Cass.  She gave me RM60, which was all her savings.  In the morning of  my birthday...

Cass - mummy, I present to you THIS!!






It was all the notes and coins that she had been saving all her life. And she gave them all to me, in her favorite coin box!

She then forced me to buy a handbag from Lazada.  I browsed the shopping website and chose a yellow MNG tote bag but I hadn't had the time to check out from the website and pay. I dilly dallied while Cass reminded me everyday to check out and pay. Finally when I had the time to to make online payment  several days later, the bag was OUT OF STOCK!  Bummer!  I was disappointed but Cass was even more disappointed than me.  She kept urging me to choose another color and I chose a pastel green MNG tote bag, which cost RM59 (after a massive discount), as per picture below:





The MNG tote bag arrived yesterday and I am so in love with it.  This is Cass' first gift to me and though it is not very expensive monetarily, it is nevertheless very expensive to Cass as she had used all her life savings to get it for me :)

Thank you God for this angel.


Choosing the Shipping Options Best for Your Product Line

The government requires manufacturers to ship out their products in the safest manner possible. When your business creates products that could be deemed as risky or even deadly, you may in particular be under close scrutiny from the federal government. Rather than package and ship out your products haphazardly, you can instead partner with business that is committed to research like medical package testing and other methods of sending out fragile and risky products without putting the public at risk. You can choose the packaging options that suit your business the best and also learn more about other options available to you online.

Medical Packaging Options  
Businesses that create medical products or send out biological components like vaccines or even toxins for research must take the utmost care to ensure their shipments' safety. If a medical toxin leaks and makes its way into the public arena, it could put people at risk of becoming ill. The company in turn could be held financially liable for the damages and even face criminal charges in court.

Rather than put yourself and your business at such risk, you can utilize one of the packaging choices available to you on the website. You can learn how the products your business produces can be safely wrapped and shipped out so that they do not break or leak. You can also choose options like the packaging itself so that you know your products are as guarded and intact as possible during shipment.

Environmental Toxins 
If your company ships environmental products like fertilizers or chemicals, you likewise may be expected to ensure that they are secured before, during, and after shipping. When you cannot oversee the shipping process, you must rely on partners like the company online to take care of this task for you.

You can explore the business' environmental shipping processes by doing some research online. If you have questions or concerns, the business makes available contact options that let you speak to someone from the company today.

You can also get a quote by using the Quote Request link at the top of the page. This link lets you price your shipping options and budget accordingly.

The government expects you to ship your fragile and risky products safely. You can explore your options and choose the one that is best for you by researching online today.

Qing Ming 2016 (3 April 2016)

After a hot morning performing Qing Ming rites, we left Ipoh for KL at about 1:45pm.

Traffic was not smooth unlike yesterday but tolerable.  There were many vehicles traveling back to the South, nonetheless they were not at snail's pace. We reached KL at around 4ish pm, which was slightly longer than usual.

Good thing there's a TV in the car - the girls and I enjoyed a nice movie - Daddy's Home. By the time the movie was over, we were almost reaching KL.





This trip has been really 'fruitful' for the foodie hubs as he  killed a few birds with one stone.  Besides paying respect to his departed loved ones, he managed to tuck into all his favorite famous Ipoh hawkers fare.


From Hakka noodles, pork balls, fish balls and stuffed 'liu' (pic below)...




To mouth-watering curry noodles.  The picture of this bowl of curry noodles is already making my tummy growl now!




He also sweated it out at the ever-crowded world-famous Kong Heng coffee shop in old town and dug into his favorite 'ngar choi kai see hor fun' (bean sprouts shredded chicken flat noodles), chee cheong fun, char koay teow and God knows what else. I was hibernating at home with the air-conditioner turned on and 2 fans blowing at me. The El-Nino heat has been really unbearable and I just did not feel like leaving the house.  I gave him an order of my yum list and he bought them all for me :D

The hubs surprised me with my favorite fresh cempedak swiss roll (not in my order list), which was yummy to the max!




We had an early dinner at 5pm of all the famous Ipoh hawkers food, which the hubs ta-pau back to KL.

Everyone, including the hubs conked out by 9pm but I am still enjoying my much missed quiet time at the computer now.  Thank God it's a school-declared holiday for the girls tomorrow, yippee!!

Izumio And Super Lutein - Testimonial On Stroke

Almost a year ago,  the Mom of my team member's friend  had a stroke. She collapsed and could not walk and could not talk. At that time, my friend was 3 hours away from her Mom but her sister had called her to say Mom had fallen. My friend had literally just collected 3 boxes of Izumio for her own daughter for her gut healing as she had a tendency to break out often. She then rushed to her Mom's side. The ambulance took Mom to the Hospital.

Prior to this, she had instructed her sister to give Mom a packet of Izumio knowing that Izumio could help save a life. You would just not believe this but after that one packet, the Mom became conscious and could talk again. She had no recollection of where she was, who she was, who her family members were and did not recognise anyone.

At the hospital, the Doctor's plan was to open up her brain and fix it. My friend had so much faith in Izumio that she gave a story to the Doctors to hold on with the operation. With stroke and an old lady, anything could go wrong. She told the Doctor to wait for her brothers from abroad to arrive back first before going ahead with the brain surgery.  She can even read her Bible.

Meanwhile, she made friends with the nurses and learnt how they fed her Mom through the feeding tube. And when nobody was watching, she poured Izumio into the feeding tube. 4 packets a day to be exact. The very next day, the droop on her Mom's face had reversed. The 4 packets a day continued in secret.

5 days later, her Mom vomited the blood clot out and she panicked shit. But her Mom was OK thereafter!!!!

She did not end up having any brain surgery.

Today, the Mom's white hair has turned back to black. Prior to her stroke, my friend had already plans to bring Mom for a glaucoma operation but now she no longer needs it as she can see and is no longer at risk.

Now this sounds like a miracle that is just too good to be true. You don't have to believe it. But if there is a life to be saved, go out and do it.  My team member totally trusts her friend and I know that if anyone around me whom I loved had a stroke (God forbid), I would have done a similar thing.
Because I believe in the powerful healing properties of Hydrogen.
