Mother’s Day 2018

On Mother’s Day Sunday, I was rushing to complete the usual chores at home before church service at 9 a.m.  After 2 rounds of laundry, boiled 2 rounds of water and mopped the floor, I was sweating bullets.

Then my Alycia, the least expected one, the one with royal fingers who doesn’t like to dirty her hands, the one who hates all kitchen chores, presented me with my Mother’s Day breakfast (pic on the right).  It was meant to be a heart shape bread spread with garlic & herbs cream cheese but it looked nothing like a heart shape. I asked her what it was and she told me it was a heart shape. Then the both of us burst into peals of laughter.

Cass also prepped something for me. It’s a piece of bread art with cheese, painted with hazelnut chocolate spread. Very nicely done.

But with only 20 minutes left before service would start and I hadn’t showered yet, I didn’t have the mood nor the time to sit and relax and enjoy my breakfast. I only had time to hurriedly stuff Alycia’s bread into my mouth and while chewing, quickly rushed to the bathroom to have a quick shower.  I never have the time to sit down to enjoy my breakfast during the weekends. I had to abort my plan of washing my sweaty head and hair.  I even had to stop Drama Queen from prepping breakfast for me. We were running late and I didn’t have the time to eat.

This is one of the sacrifices of being a mum ~ even on Mother’s Day, where I am supposed to sit back, chillax and do nothing, work at home continues. My man doesn’t help with house work 😡.  Guess I can only have the time to be a lady of leisure in 10 years’ time.

After service ended, all the mothers were treated to Gelato ice-creams.  All the youths from the Fellowship (including Alycia & Drama Queen) worked hard to prep home-made waffles and serve ice-creams to the mothers.

After church, I went to 99 Speedmart to get some groceries. While I was at the checkout counter, I got a surprise.  Out of a sudden, I heard someone wishing me  enthusiastically “FOR YOU. HAPPY MOTHER DAYS” … and then someone from behind me handed out a stalk of carnation to me.  The girls and I burst into peals of laughter again. So sweet of the general worker  to give me a stalk of carnation. For someone who could hardly speak English, he tried his best to wish me, albeit in less than perfect English.

Lunch was at Les Deux Garcons (LDG) again, the man’s favorite cafe.  It was when we were waiting for our food that I remembered that we came here for Mother’s Day lunch too last year!  How time flies yo!

Salad and pumpkin soup with garlic toast.

Egg omelette and fries with photobomb from someone really hangry; spaghetti bolognese for Cass who never ever gets sick of it.

Mushroom chicken chop for moi; LDG beef balls for Drama Queen.

Ice-cream and cake, on the house from LDG for mothers. But I gave them to my 3 piranhas who can really chow down like a champ. They have a bottomless pit and can out-eat all their peers and even we adults!  I’ve had enough of ice-creams and wasn’t even hungry when we had lunch.

Cass made this moving card for me at Sunday School. At the pull of a stick behind, each card pasted on the stick flickers, with a message written on every card.

And behind the card, my baby girl clipped a one Ringgit note to it 💝

Health 101: How To Cultivate A Lifestyle Of Wellness

While cultivating great health is the key to taking every area of your life to the next level, it’s important to remember that most people don’t take the time to develop a wellness plan or strategies that will help them accomplish this objective. Yet you should. When done consistently and correctly, implementing health strategies can generate great life outcomes such as increased productivity at work, better social interactions, enhanced self-esteem, and an improved ability to fight the onset of debilitating diseases. Below you’ll find three of many health strategies you can implement to begin cultivating a lifestyle of wellness:

1. Get Your Diet Together
One great way to take your health to a new level is by getting your diet together. Do it right now instead of waiting until next week so you can begin attaining the absolutely amazing results that will take your quality of life from average to amazing. There are many ways that you can begin developing good eating habits that last a life time. Your first step to success is abandoning the world of dieting forever. Dieting is dangerous for multiple reasons, one of which is that it ruins your metabolism. Another issue with dieting is that they tend to involve severe caloric restriction, with this reality ensuring that people won’t remain on the plan their whole life. In addition to ending your relationship with dieting, consider the value of hiring a nutritionist or joining an online health community where you can join other individuals in lively, informed discussions about food.

2. Start Exercising
In addition to getting your diet together, start exercising regularly. Doing so is important and advantageous because getting in regular physical activity will help optimize your metabolism, thereby enhancing your body’s natural weight management potential. Additionally, regular exercise is important because it helps the body fight disease more effectively while also enabling you to think more critically and clearly. You can exercise in isolation from home or with other people in the group setting at the gym.

3. Focus On Optimizing Your Aesthetic Appeal
In addition to exercising regularly, make sure that you focus on optimizing your aesthetic appeal. This technique is important because feeling good about the way you look can heighten self-esteem and thereby contribute to your mental health. Note that lacking confidence about your physical appearance can cause a wide range of unwanted mental problems, some of which include depression and social anxiety.
