Goofing Around

Alycia and Sherilyn love doing silly things and goofing around. It’s nice to see them play and have so much fun with each other but worrying at the same time coz sometimes they don’t realize that they are playing a tad too rough with each other and minor accidents had occured before. When I hear them scream, laugh and squeal in excitement, I have to watch them closely, else they would loose control of themselves and hurt themselves.

A Day Of Puking

First, it was Miss Pukey Sherilyn when she choked on her banana this evening. Despite me telling her to take small bites, she put the last bite of the banana into her tiny mouth,  had difficulty chewing it, choked and puked.  Luckily I had plastic bags at every nook and corner of the house.  I quickly grabbed a plastic bag and caught her puke.

Then it was Alycia’s turn.  During dinner, Alycia was gobbling down the fried turnip, which was one of her favorite dishes.  She has a habit of stuffing herself with food that she loves without even realizing that she’s too full.  Despite me telling her to stop eating, it fell on deaf ears.  When her tummy could not  handle it anymore, she ran to the loo to puke but was late and puked everywhere on the kitchen floor!  I was busy in the kitchen.

Alycia ended up having strawberry jam sandwich and when Sherilyn saw cheh cheh eating, she too demanded for strawberry jam sandwich.  There is never a dull moment when you have 2 very interesting toddlers.

Tasty Fish Soup

This is a pot of steaming hot, tasty and sweet fish soup boiled with ‘kau yue’ (is it called Mackeral in English?) bones, head, tomatoes, garlic and slices of ginger. The soup goes very well with noodles.

I had made some fish paste last week and used the fish bones to make some soup. Do check out my other blog to see how I made fish paste and fish balls from scratch.

Relief For Dry and Peeling Skin

This is the picture of my belly with skin peeling taken a week ago.

Picture of my skin peeling from my arm taken a week ago. 

I have finally found a relief for my dry, peeling and itchy skin.  Here’s what I am doing now :

1) Apply either Jojo oil or Cocoa oil as first layer immediately after my bath, when my skin is still damp (twice a day)
2) Then, apply either Rosken Dry skin relief or Vaseline on the skin (twice a day).
3) Just before bedtime, I will apply another layer of Rosken Dry skin relief or Vaseline.
4) I’ve stopped using a bath loofah to scrub my skin.
5) Bathe with very little body shampoo  – almost half the amount of shampoo used.
6)  Use a very gentle body shampoo with moisturizer.  I’ve recently even switched to a soap-free and PH neutral body shampoo.
7) Apply very little amount of powder on my skin as powder can also dry up the skin.

Now, my skin does not itch ANYMORE and the peeling has stopped considerably. Downside is I smell of cocoa and petrol all the time and my body is perpetually sticky, yucky! What a big turnoff to hubby eh? LOL!

Even after my clothes are washed, they still smell of petrol from the Vaseline. But who cares as long as my body doesn’t itch anymore and I can have a good night’s sleep.

Our Simple Dinner

We normally have 3 dishes for dinner – a must-have stir-fried vegetables, a fish or a chicken and an egg or tofu dish or another vegetables dish.  Are these a lot? Hubby usually doesn’t join us for dinner as he works late and doesn’t like bland food (what an insult to my cooking eh?) catered for toddlers.  So these dishes are only for the 2 girls, my maid and I.  If hubby wants to eat, I will leave some dishes for him.

Yesterday we had a fried fish with blended tomato & bombay onions (sauce), a stir-fried chinese cabbage with homemade fish paste, a chicken dish (left over from previous night’s dinner), a fried egg for the girls and a radish & chicken soup .  Are these a lot? Most of my friends say that’s really a lot as they normally only have 2 dishes for dinner.
