Rubbing Vicks On The Soles Of Feet (Part 2)

Well, i did it again last night. This time, I applied the Vicks just before Alycia went to bed, even before she started to cough and I rubbed small blobs on her back, chest, under her nostrils and of course big blobs of Vicks on the soles of her feet . It was miraculous!!! Alycia fell sound asleep within minutes and soundlessly too all through the night without a sound of cough. I had to wake her up at 9am this morning for her milk and after finishing off her milk, went back to sleep and only woke up at 10.

Well, I’m still still not 100% convinced that Vicks really did the trick. I think it was more of a combined effect of the extra strength Manuka Honey UMF20+ (twice a day) and also sleeping without the air-cond.


This picture was taken this morning with Alycia still in her Vicks covered socks.

Alycia Loves Her Kids’ Bible

Alycia loves this kids’ bible that sil#2 bought her weeks ago. She is so in love with the book that she begs me to read to her every night.

A couple of nights ago, as I was busy reading to Sherilyn her favourite book, Alycia ‘read’ the bible to herself. I quickly took out my camera and took a pot-shot of Alycia, so deeply engrossed in the book (more of the pictures actually) that she was frowning as she was reading away. I just hope Alycia will have a life-long love for books.

Homecooked Food


Our dinner yesterday (from top to bottom) :

Pan-fried tempeh, the gals and my favourite. Tempeh is a type of fermented soya bean cake. My maid slices the tempeh into thin squares and pan fries them. A cheap, healthy and crunchy dish packed with protein and calcium. One pack costs only RM1-00.

Stir-fried chinese cabbage with diced chicken breast in soya sauce.

Steamed egg (again) with minced chicken meat, sweet corn kernels, sesame seed oil and spring onions

Steamed pomfret fish. Sauce for the fish consists of soya sauce, ginger and rice wine, sprinkled with spring onions and chinese celery.

All simple to cook, healthy and tasty dishes.

Sugar-free and additives-free Popsicles

The weather here in KL has been sweltering during the day of late. So I fished out the gals’ old water-filled teething rings that have been lying in the freezer for almost 1 year+ and let them have fun with them.

They call their frozen teething rings ‘ice-cream’ and they’ve been licking and playing with them for 5 straight days without any signs of getting bored with it. Good. At least the old toys are not put to waste.
