Retail Therapy Hump Day

Wednesday is the only day in a school-going week that Sherilyn is free to go to the mall with me in the morning. There’s no tuition in the morning and no librarian duty in school that requires her to be in school in the morning. We normally have our one-on-one mother daughter shopping trip and nice lunch at the mall every alternate week on a Wednesday, before I drop her off in school.  She gets to share a regular cup of Tealife with me, sans the boba and sans any sugar. We normally order classic roasted milk tea with glass jelly with zero sugar.

Today I gave Sherilyn the liberty to choose what she wants to eat and she chose Fish Bowl, the Hawaiian-style poke bowl.  To me, poke bowl is like Japanese + Hawaiian style ‘chap fan’ (aka Malaysian economy rice/dishes).  But to the Gen Y and Z youths, it’s all the rage and style.  Basically, poke bowl is composed of a protein (optional), greens, seeds, condiments and sauce atop white rice/ brown rice / quinoa / greens.  It’s the Gen Y and Gen Z’s version of ‘chap fan’, served aesthetically in a nice bowl at an air-conditioned mall vs ‘chap fan’ served in plastic plates in a kopitiam 😁  Anyone can prep their own poke bowl at home, really – just assemble your fish or chicken along with vegetables aesthetically atop rice  😆

For dinner, I cooked a one-pot dish ~ chicken stew and blanched broccoli.

Chicken, organic purple sweet potatoes, organic orange sweet potatoes, potatoes, carrots, organic leek, organic tomatoes, loads of big onions and small onions, bay leaves, thyme, Italian herbs, black pepper, organic soy sauce and salt to taste.  How I love the kaleidoscope of colours in this dish and the broth imparted from all these ingredients is just so flavorful and sweet!

Happy hump day peeps! It’s time for me to resume my Ahmad duties and my duty only ends at 9:45 p.m. tonight  😴

Test To Determine Eye Disease

Many of us have suffered from some sort of eye ailment in our lives. However, some can be serious and need to have tests run to determine what is happening and how it can be treated. Here are a few tests that can be run to find out if you have an eye disease.

Artificial Intelligence
Recently doctors have been able to use artificial intelligence to run an algorithm to determine if you have eye disorders. Some of these optometrists such as Kang Zhang have designed this type of technology to diagnose a problem more accurately than a human can alone.

Angiography
When a doctor performs this test, they are applying eye drops into your eye. This medication allows the physician to observe the blood vessels in the eye better so that they can investigate issues. When they are doing a Fluorescein Angiography, they are using fluorescent drops to see the vessels in the back of the eye. If they want to do an indocyanine green angiography test they will use the dye to look at your retina and choroid.

CT Scan Or MRI
To get a look at your entire head, your optometrist might order a computed tomography or magnetic resonance image. When this happens, you will be put inside a large machine in the radiology department and asked to lie still. Scans will be taken of your head and a radiologist and your doctor will look at them so see if your disorder is caused by something in your head.

Pachymetry
When you have this sort of test, the physician applies numbing drops to your eye. When they start working, a probe is set on your eyeball and the doctor uses ultrasound waves to look for issues. This is a necessary test if you have refractive eye surgery.
