The heat wave is on and I’m back to my days of showering 4 to 5 times a day! Every activity that I do that involves moving vigorously from moping the floor to hanging the laundry, changing the bedsheet to cooking sends me to the bathroom for a quick 5-minute shower. Even my Drama Queen who is in the afternoon session in school, who is usually very tolerable to heat was torqued off when I told her that I was bringing her to the open air kopitiam to have lunch. She didn’t want to go to school feeling like she’s got a wet plastic cling wrap on her body and asked if she could have lunch in an air-conditioned place.
So here we were yesterday, enjoying our expensive lunch in the supermarket, just so we could enjoy the air-cond:
She had grilled Shishamo smelt bento while I had half a packet of economy meehoon and a cup of milk tea. See, the mother eats like a maid and the daughter eats luxuriously. I never had such luxury growing up. My girls are lucky!
I have not wiped the ceiling fan in my bedroom myself for years. Well, easily for the past 10 years as I’ve always had a live-in maid and part-time maid to help me with it. But since our part-time helper is now pregnant, I have to do this chore myself, with some extra large antibacterial wet wipes. And I ended up with a crick in my neck yesterday after trying to elongate my neck like a giraffe to reach the top most part of the ceiling fan. I can’t even turn my head properly now when I drive. Dang it!

This was my keto brunch today (chicken, steamed egg and vegetables) after 15 hours of fasting for my yearly blood test for cholesterol and blood sugar:
Hope the readings for my cholesterol will be better this year. If you don’t already know yet, I have Familial Hypercholesterolemia, which is genetic high cholesterol. No matter the diet and exercise regimen that I’ve tailored into my life, my cholesterol level is still slightly elevated. Thus, I can’t be the hardcore carnivore that I was many years ago. Wish me luck in my blood works results!
