Lost And Found And What A Joke!

This is the new AIRism shirt that hubs bought from Uniqlo on Sunday. Being the OCD that I am, the moment we got home from the mall, I immediately washed all the new clothes that I’d bought, including his. And I remembered that after the shirt was dried the same night (AIRism dries within an hour or two after machine wash), I hung it in hubs’ closet.



Fast forward two days later.  Hubs asked me what happened to this shirt. He was looking for it high and low but couldn’t find it. He checked his closet, mine, his mom’s and the kids’ closets umpteen times but couldn’t find it. I checked everyone’s closets more than 101 times but couldn’t find it too.  After the both of us hunted for this shirt for 3 days, we got frustrated. And I was beginning to feel suspicious of our part-time helper.  Why are things disappearing mysteriously from our house? Cass’ mobile phone is still not found after 2 months, as well as other stuff. And now this shirt.

I felt really bad that I could even have suspicion of  our part-time helper. What if we’re wrong? That’s accusation on her.  She’s been working for us for more than 7 years and I trust her 100%, leaving her at home alone sometimes while we go out. I treat her like a family member. Then Sherilyn asked me what I’d do if I found out that it’s indeed our helper who’s the culprit.  I told her that I’ll forgive her and will still be hiring her.

Not 101% satisfied with our search and trusting that our helper is innocent, I went through hubs’ closet the 900th time just now and guess what, I found the new shirt! It was hanging nicely inside. But our eyes  have been playing tricks on us  😵When we went through the clothes, we were only looking at all the reds.  As the shirt is new, we could not remember clearly that only the bottom part of the shirt is red and the top part is maroon, thus we missed checking the maroon clothes!  Hubs has an OCD of hanging his clothes by grouping all the same colours together. Even the hangers must be the same kind.😂

My next mission now is to continue my search for Cass’ Huawei phone. I find it really mysterious that even after turning all the common hiding spots upside down, the phone still can’t be found — just like the mysterious disappearance of flight 370 in 2014  😆

On another matter, yesterday I found out that my car tire had another nail embedded – on the same tire, twice within a span of 3 months!   The observant guard at our condo once again discovered the leaking tire and informed me yesterday morning when I was jogging.  Hubs who was with me at the workshop also got his car tire checked and what do you know?  One of the tires had 2 nails on it!!  Some irresponsible people must have been dumping nails on the road at our neighborhood! Bugger!

See the nail?

Mr Nice Guy

Fai used to be the handyman engaged by our condo management. But when the condo committee changed management company, Fai was replaced by staff brought in by the new management company.  Nonetheless we still call Fai to do repair and renovation works. He’s one of the nicest and most non-calculative man we have known.  He doesn’t give you a bill or request for payment after works are completed. Instead, we have to chase him to collect money from us. Sometimes he does minor repair works for us free of charge when he drops by the condo to do renovation works for other units.

Fai and our family have become friends over the years.  When he was hospitalized for high blood pressure, the mil made him a specially brewed Chinese tea known for bringing down hypertension.  Sometimes we would give him cakes and kuih if he happens to be at our unit.

About two months ago, when the mil called Fai to do some minor repair works at our unit, he Whatsapped a gory photo to her – he was lying on the road with blood oozing out from his leg with firefighters surrounding him. He had fallen from the second floor of a double storey house while doing repair works! We were shocked to see the photo.  Thank God he survived the fall with only a fractured leg and needed several surgeries.

A few weeks after the tragic accident and two surgeries later, Fai is now recuperating. He has to move around on a bespoke wheelchair now.  Recently he came on his wheelchair to our unit to repair our kitchen drawer. I am truly amazed by Fai’s grit and positive attitude.  He only billed us RM30 for the job but I gave him RM50 instead, to cover the cost of Grab.  And the mil gave him a bag of Biscotti that she’d just baked.

Fai is currently unable to do restoration and repair works that require him to climb and move around vigorously but I hope that very soon he’ll be fit as a fiddle to resume working at full-swing once again.  He’s got a whole family to feed.

Glum Friday – 19 July 2019

This is a throwback post.

I woke up last Friday to find both our Barb fish at the bottom of the aquarium, dead. I was crushed, so were the girls. Though the fishes had only been with us for a week, we have grown to have a liking towards them.  One of the Barb fishes was a real survivor. When we first brought it home, we found it  half dead the next day (New Tank Syndrome, I think). It was floating on top of the water and not moving. We thought it had died. For half the day, we tried to resuscitate it by knocking on the aquarium and it moved. Then it tried to swim but kept swimming deliriously and kept nose-diving down the tank.  After we transferred it into a separate container and let it recuperate, it grew stronger and stronger and became a healthy fish again. We then bought another Barb fish to keep it company.

And the culprit for killing the two Barb fish?


This little fella. Don’t know what species this fish is. We have now named this fella the Big Bully!

On Thursday we decided to put the two Barb fish back into the big aquarium to be with the rest of the fishes. But we noticed that Big Bully kept nipping the fins of the Barb fishes.  We were not sure if Big Bully was just kissing Barb (as in welcoming them) or nipping them. We are not experts in fishes and were totally clueless.

When both the Barb fish died the next morning, we were certain that Big Bully killed them.  More sad news unfolded throughout the day.

The rest of the fishes began to die, one by one. When one fish died, the partner of the similar species followed suit in death.  In just one day, 6 fishes died, including one that was pregnant. We were all devastated.

Could Big Bully be that vicious?  We removed it from the aquarium and isolated it from the remaining 3 living fishes.

Long story short, the last living Angel fish eventually died too, after we managed to resuscitate it when it was gasping and sank to the bottom of the tank.


Cass quickly removed the dead fishes from the aquarium the moment she stepped into the house from school and buried the fishes in our potted plants.


When Alycia came home and saw the last Angel fish dying, she kept tapping on the tank to try to resuscitate it. We isolated Angel in a separated container and saw it spring back to life again! We all cheered when Angel swam again. But it just wouldn’t eat and sadly, the next morning it died too 😭

Big Bully has been very inactive and looks very depressed ever since it was isolated. Cass says it’s now in fish prison for murder 😬  After several days, I decided to put Big Bully back into the tank and observe if it’s still bullying the other 2 fishes.  I was right. The moment it was released back into the aquarium, it became ‘alive’ again and started to nip the orange fish. I Googled and learned that Big Bully could be attempting to mate with the orange fish.

Did you know that Guppy mating takes less than a second, and it looks just like he is stinging her at her vent where her gravid spot is located?   But again, we were not sure if Big Bully was nipping on Orange or trying to impregnate it  😂   Now Big Bully is back in isolation/prison 😆

We’ve learned so much about fish in just a short period of two weeks. As the aquarium is just next to my work desk, I can observe the fishes all the time. And I’ve realized that fishes have feelings too. 🐠 🐟

Enough about fish, let’s talk fruits 🍒🍌


Sil #2 from Hong Kong bought lots of cherries, blueberries, jumbo avocados and jumbo grapes from the fruits wholesaler in Selayang. We’re now popping  super sweet cherries and blueberries into our mouths everyday 😋

Cass enjoying her fruits and Harry Potter book before tuition on Saturday.

5 Reasons to Consider Life Insurance

While it’s something you never want to face, the reality of needing life insurance is one that’s necessary to prepare for. Though it might seem like a gamble, life insurance has benefits worth considering in the long run. Here are some reasons to start thinking about life insurance in preparation for a secure future. Try googling life insurance companies near you to find a good match (e.g. life insurance elk grove ca).

Extra Expenses
The cost of burial can add up quickly, and it is the most immediate cost a family faces in the event of a loved one’s death. Having life insurance in place ensures the funeral cost is already paid for, easing the burden on those left behind.

Lost Income
In the case of a spouse’s death, life insurance replaces his or her income. This alleviates the financial burden on the remaining spouse, who may have been relying on that joint income, especially in the case of supporting children.

Children
Children are a great incentive to obtain life insurance. In the case of a parent’s death, the lessened financial impact on the remaining parent will allow him or her to continue to care for children as if nothing has changed and can include saving up for college tuition.

Estate Taxes
In the case of inheritance upon death, taxes on the passed-on estate will come swooping in. These can be pricey, so it helps any heirs to have assistance for their inheritance, especially if they haven’t planned for or aren’t aware of the costs associated with it.

Debt
No one wants to leave the unnecessary burden of added debt on someone else’s shoulders. If you have life insurance, it can cover those finances that would otherwise be passed down to the rest of the family to take care of. A spouse or children would become responsible for any debt left behind, such as the mortgage.

Planning for your family’s sake is always worth it. That’s why it’s important to consider life insurance earlier instead of later when your chances of needing it are greater.

Top 5 Cities With Most Bicycle Commuters 

Whether it’s to boost your health, fitness, bank balance, for fun or as an environmental choice, taking up bicycle riding could be one of the best decisions you ever make. If you’re considering getting one of those modern city bikes to commute to work or campus, you’ve made the right choice! Biking offers a healthy, extremely economical, space-efficient, and, above all, clean alternative to other forms of transportation. If the idea of cycling is embraced by enough people, it has great potential to alleviate pressure on existing infrastructure.

Cycling is a great way to stave off diseases and stress. Those who exercise regularly are at significantly lower risk of cardiovascular disease, type two diabetes, all types of cancer, high blood pressure and obesity. The body becomes much more efficient at defending itself and regenerating new cells.

Here are the top 5 cities that have the most bicycle commuters:

1. Copenhagen, Denmark
Copenhagen is the most bike-friendly city in the world. Tourists are often overwhelmed by the number of bicycles on the road, and children are taught to ride before they’re even old enough to go to school, thanks to bicycle-friendly measures taken by the city.

2.  Amsterdam, Netherlands
There are more bicycles than people in The Netherlands and in cities like Amsterdam and The Hague, up to 70% of all journeys are made by bike. The whole of Amsterdam is a single bike path and cyclists are allowed to ride almost everywhere.

3.  Portland, Oregon
It’s hard to beat Europe in terms of bicycle-friendliness, but Portland is trying its best.

4.  Boulder, Colorado
The city’s 300 miles of bikeways include on-street bike lanes, contra-flow bike lanes, designated bike routes, paved shoulders, multi-use paths, and soft-surface paths. There’s also a bike registration program to help protect bicycles from theft. You’ll see all types of bikes on the streets from city bikes to hybrid bikes to the best electric bikes.

5.  Montreal, Canada
The bustling Canadian city of Montreal has an impressive 600 kilometres (about 373 miles) of bike paths, which is almost twice as many as Copenhagen.

If you are ready to hit the pavement by pedal to reap all the benefits associated with cycling, head over to Six Three Zero today to check out their range of custom bicycles or hybrid bikes for sale!

Maintaining My Ideal Weight

Now that I’ve managed to shed off for good the 1.5 kg of stubborn fat gained after the birth of my third daughter 11 years ago, I am trying hard to maintain that weight.. which fluctuates between 44 kg – 44.8 kg.  Standing at 158cm, my weight had been stagnant at 46+ kg for over 10 years.  It’s not easy to maintain my weight at my ideal number and it involves a LOT of hard work and sacrifices.  As we age, our metabolic rate slows down. It gets sluggish when we don’t exercise or are sedentary.  It’s important to keep ourselves active all day long to keep the metabolic rate going.  I’ve recently increased my strength training duration and variety every morning five times a week.  I spend 15-20 minutes on strength training and lower abdomen exercises and 30 minutes on brisk walking / jogging.  As I keep doing it, I find that my stamina gets better and I burn energy  faster throughout the day. I can feel it as I get hungry faster.  I am also trying to cut out bread from my diet and this is not easy as bread has been my staple since the beginning of time!

I had a very low carb breakfast yesterday, consisting of pistachios, black skin groundnuts, a quarter of avocado, one hard-boiled egg with organic shoyu and a small handful of Simply Fit 7-cheese crackers from Melaleuca.

I believe anyone can loose weight and stick to their ideal weight.  All you need is a little time and dedication for exercise several times a week,  a will power to turn your head away from high carb foods, REDUCE your food portion and you’ll see magic on the scale! 💃🏽

Losing Weight The Natural Way, Without Exercise :D

The one advantage of falling sick and being crazy busy is that  you lose weight, naturally, without exercise. And that’s just what happened to me.

It all started several months ago when our part-time maid of 6 years went back to Indonesia for 6 weeks to get married. Without her coming to help us out 5 times a week, life was tough and crazy. At that time too, I had a lot of online assignments to write and submit with tight deadlines, right until now.  I was constantly rushing from one task to another, without having proper sit-down meals.  I lost some weight from the thick of things.

Come December 2018 during the long school holidays, I thought that I would gain back the weight I lost as I did not exercise a single day but nope. I was down with a bad throat and cough for almost a month, lost my appetite, did not get a wink of sleep for days from the hacking and whooping and not being to eat what I wanted to eat.  I lost more weight from this sickness.

As a result, I lost close to 2kg within 3 months.  2kg for someone who has been at 46kg for the last 10 years is a lot of weight lost.

From 46 kg+ to 44.4 kg :

And then a few days later, when I saw 44.3 kg, I was thrilled to death! 😬

I was even more thrilled to find out that I could slip into an XXS spaghetti strap top from Cotton On and the top is even loose on me, woohoo!

Love this striking pink floral top which I got it at only RM30 from the Cotton On sale during the December school holidays. What a steal!

Because of a smaller waist (both from the current weight loss and a big fibroid removed 1.5 years ago), I had to bring a pile of skirts to my tailor to have them tightened at the waist as I could totally not wear these skirts anymore. The skirts were dropping down my waist and even my smallest belt could not hold them up.

Who wants to lose weight without having to exercise? Go indulge yourself in more house work, get yourself crazy busy with work but don’t fall sick la. It sucks to fall sick.  My two older girls kept commenting that I am grossly underweight now coz I am lighter than them now 🤫 🤭

First Compliment For The Year

My first compliment for the year 2019 came on the forth day of the new year. 😁

I went up to the gym to check on Alycia and Sherilyn who were in their kickboxing class when they did not pick up my call and were over half an hour late from the stated dismissal time.

When I was at the gym, the cute coach asked me “You want to fetch them back now? I am giving extra lesson today. Are you their sister?

I gave the cute coach a stunned look and he said “are you their mother??”

🤣

That was one of the sweetest compliments, coming from a young and cute dude.  This remark / compliment is not new to me though.  I’ve received comments from dirty old men that I have a physique of a teenager, which made me float fleetingly but the manner in which they complimented me made me want to puke and lose respect towards them instantly. 🙄

Alycia’s first kickboxing class on 4 January 2019.  Sherilyn’s third class. Cute coach is the one in red shirt.

Alycia loved it  but was enervated coz that girl worked out at our condo gym for over an hour before her  kickboxing class, not knowing that kickboxing would be that rigorous and physically draining.

Now the girls are asking me to get them new hand wrap and gloves as the ones at the gym stink and are damp and disgusting.

Unexpected Places Modern Technology Benefits Human Health

With today’s obvious examples like smartwatches and online pharmacies with integrated apps, you can appreciate high tech’s positive impact on human health. Still, tech plays roles that are not initially apparent to consumers considering the subject for the first time. The following modern-software implementations may surprise you.

Laboratories
Every person who has experienced a wait for lab results can appreciate tools that shorten that wait. Laboratory information software stands among those tools. Produced by businesses like ASPYRA Clinical Software Systems, LIS solutions help lab technicians manage their workflows and improve their efficiency. Such improvements let patients get important information faster, which can help them consult with their healthcare providers and move forward with important decisions sooner than before such software existed.

Wastewater Treatment Facilities
Imagine a poorly managed sewage system. It is an unpleasant idea, and it can lead to human health issues. Top municipal wastewater treatment facilities keep their systems flowing in the right direction with customized software that helps plant workers monitor tanks and know which buttons to push at specific times. When properly deployed in a well-maintained facility, this tailored technology makes the facility’s community healthier.

Dreamland
You probably know about clock apps and meditation apps, but you may be less aware of sleep-monitoring apps. These can enhance your health by tracking your sleep cycles and letting you analyze the data alone or with your physician. Features in this app category include white noise, sleep-apnea tracking and alarms that only ring when you are in a shallow sleep cycle.

Now that you know the above examples of today’s technology improving people’s health, you can take a new look at your surroundings. Surely, you will find other places where tech positively affects your life that previous generations would not have predicted. Future generations will benefit in ways that nobody has yet imagined.

Help Your Loved One Live With More Independence

Independent living is one thing that most people hate to lose as they age. Staying in the home can be made safer by hiring in qualified assistance to help ensure your loved one stays safe and well-cared for each day.

Help Maintain Independent Living

Incorporating quality elder care assistance to your aging loved one is a better way to allow them to maintain more independence in life by allowing them to safely stay at home, rather than placing them in full-time nursing facilities. Allow them the ability to stay in an environment they are comfortable and familiar with.

Man Holding Woman's Hand

Safeguard Your Loved One’s Health

Bringing in quality home health care assistance will help safeguard the health of those you love by being able to monitor chronic conditions like heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and more. You can detect problems sooner and seek further medical assistance when needed. It improves their chances of staying healthy longer.

Provide the Consistent Care Your Loved One Needs

You can bring in qualified elder care assistance for times you are not able to be present with your loved one. It’s critical for conditions like Alzheimer’s that someone is able to supervise both day and night. You will eliminate the possibilities of wandering and the dangers of becoming lost.

Ensure Safer Mobility and Daily Care

Reducing the chances your loved one can take a tumble and get injured while trying to motivate around the home can be minimized with elder care assistance. You can get them the daily assistance needed for grooming and basic care. You will feel better about being called away for work or appointments.

Unfortunately, aging is one part of life that cannot be avoided or stopped. It can be dangerous to leave your aging loved one without supervision or assistance if they prefer to stay at home. Health care and basic daily care assistance can help ensure it is a safe environment.

Getting Your Kids Excited About Sleep

Don’t you ever just look at your kids and think, ‘why are you taking this sleep for granted?’.  Sometimes after a really hard day, when you haven’t exactly had the most sleep in the world for a week or more now, all you can think about is how you wish you could have as much sleep as your children do, and how annoyed you get at the fact that they don’t want to sleep as much. But, it’s not that they’re not excited about sleep, it’s more to do with the fact that they’re just more excited about what’s going on when they are asleep. They feel as though they’re going to miss out on some of the best times of their life if they go to sleep, but as their eyes clothes and they drift off to the land of nod, they forget about it all! So, we want to show you how you can actually get your kids excited about sleep, so you don’t have all the drama every time it comes close to nap time.

Be Close To Them
This really is the golden ticket as it were. If you stay close to them whilst they’re falling to sleep, they’ll feel so much more comforted. Closeness and warmth are two big keys. So, if you notice them getting a little grouchy, put a film on the TV, cuddle up with them for half an hour, and you will see how quick it is for them to fall to sleep. So many parents seem to lock their kids in their bedroom to try and force a nap on them, when this can only lead to distress. If there is no mention of a nap, and you just keep them comfy and warm, then will no doubt fall to sleep on their own, and very happy too! It takes away all of the tantrums that you might be having, and the same can be applied to their bedtime as well. If you sit in their room with them for a little while, they will fall to sleep much quicker!

Create A Funky Room
A funky room is one that is going to get your kids super excited about sleep. Well, it might make them a little too excited, but at least it takes the chore of having to try and get them into the bedroom away. Once they’re in there, you can guide them away from the TV or toys, and into one of the cabin beds from Cuckooland. They’re so cool for kids to sleep in, and it can really feel like they’ve got a little den of their own up off the ground. If you also put cool wallpaper that lights up in the dark in the room, you’re onto a winner. They’ll instantly want the lights off, and a dark room is going to make them fall to sleep so much quicker!

Get Them Excited About Waking Up!
The final tactic that we have is actually getting them excited about waking up. Tell them what they’re going to be doing if they go to sleep, and we guarantee they’ll be more than inclined to take themselves off up to bed!

Tips On Choosing Engagement Rings

There are certain guidelines one can follow. Many brides-to-be will have to decide what is in it that they want when buying citrine engagement rings. You will need to consider the cost, which is the foremost rule and a basic one to follow.

Avoid the notion that big and quantity is all you have to it but paying more than what you can afford is certainly something you need to consider and be on-guard. It could set you into a trap that later might lead to financial difficulties which is not going to do any good to the relationship. Keep it simple. It would be better off making ring purchases within your means rather than beyond your means.

Why pay above your means for a morganite engagement ring white gold that could only put you in debt?  It is wiser to work around your own budget and not somebody else’s budget. Try to work along this line and you won’t go wrong. Have an open and honest discussion with your fiance, then proceed to pay for what you both are comfortable with.

If you go with quality over quantity, then it is unlikely you will go wrong. The rule is pay only what you can comfortably afford. For example, you don’t need to spend three months’ salary for the ring if you cannot afford it. Do not be overtaken by overzealous talk from marketing or salespeople into paying more than what you can afford nor be cowed into feeling less of a person if you do not go for more.

Just beware of the marketing ploy by big companies and know your real needs. No need to put yourself into unnecessary stresses but instead keep it as simple as you can, following the above rather straightforward principles in going about your engagement ring buying. What you can afford at the moment, is what you should be focusing at.

Upgrade later where chance permits later on in life. Any extra you may have now could be utilized for some other useful household matters such as upgrading of home decor. This is to keep a balance, so you can also focus on other equally important matters which may also require financial resources, just in case, if you have to, in order to meet any shortfalls later. In this way, you can work out your ring engagement buying in a properly manageable position.

Endless choices of fine selection is very much available for those who have a fancy for varied specialty designs and a budget concern to look out for; and you can find all these among the ‘White Gold Engagement Ring’ category. For example, 14k white gold matching wedding rings are already a hit among wearers of different age group, especially in the western world. Perhaps, this can be one option you can look into. Hope this little guideline helps.

Preparing For Your First Visit To A New Dentist

Whether you have a deep fear of dentists and have been putting off your visit for far too long or you’re simply changing dentists, there are some ways to prepare. It’s important to be ready for your first visit to a new dentist, so the appointment will go smoothly and you’ll be able to have a more positive experience.

What Should You Have with You?
It’s never a good idea to go to your first appointment with a new dentist Skokie empty-handed. There are a number of things you can bring with you to help the visit more efficient and less tedious. For instance, if you are switching from another dentist, it’s helpful to have your X-rays with you. If they’re newer X-rays, your new dentist may not need to take new images of your teeth. Even if they’re older, it will help your dentist identify past problems and areas that need special attention.

Additionally, if you were referred, bring along your referral slip, as well as medical and dental insurance forms. Your new dentist will also want to know what medications you’re currently taking. This includes over the counter medications and herbal remedies. This is important, because they may negatively interact with treatments he plans to prescribe for you.

Arriving for Your First Dental Treatment
If your dentist determines that you need treatment, he will tell you in advance how to prepare for the day of your treatment. Be sure to strictly follow his instructions to ensure you’re treatment will go as well as possible. This likely means restricting what you eat and drink, as well as stopping any medication you may be taking. Facilities such as Northwestern Dental Group often employ the newest innovations and are equipped with state of the art equipment, but that doesn’t mean you can’t sabotage your treatment by failing to follow the dentist’s instructions.

Why visit the dentist regularly?

You should be sure to get to the dentist’s office early on the day of treatment. Arriving at least 15 minutes early will help the staff compile any last minute information they need and also ensure you’re fully prepared to undergo the procedure. If you’re feeling nervous or anxious about the procedure, be sure to let the staff know. They may be able to help you allay your fears and will be sure you’re treated with extra sensitivity, during the treatment.
When you begin seeing a new dentist, how you prepare can influence how positive the experience will be. This means being able to supply your dentist with as much information as possible about your current dental and medical conditions. Together, you and your dentist can make treatments more positive, which will reduce your anxiety about returning.

Cabinets For A Kid-Friendly Kitchen

When you have children in the home, you need cabinets that are rather difficult to get into but not at such a level that older children feel that they can’t make their own decisions about what to get to eat. There are a few modifications that you can make to the kitchen cabinets St Louis companies work with and install.

toddler in kitchen

One of the ideas for a family-friendly kitchen is to install the cabinets above the counters. Younger children usually can’t climb that far, and older children will usually still be able to reach the cabinets if they want a snack after school or if they are responsible for getting the dishes to set the table. Instead of a kitchen and dining area that is separate from the rest of the home, consider making it a multi-purpose room. You’ll need to keep the appliances separate in most instances, but you could easily blend a comfortable living room with a dining room so that children can be watched while they are near cabinets.

As you look at the cabinets, think about the age of the home and the overall style. You want the space to flow, so it’s best to work with the basic layout. If the cabinets are on the lower level of the room, then think about remodeling them so that they roll out for more space inside and to make it easier to store items and organize the things that you need. Add locks to the cabinets so that children can’t open them.

The hardware on the cabinets is another issue to consider. Handles and knobs that are appealing to children might make them want to open the cabinets more often, but this design can also have its benefits.
