Sour lehhh

If your bebeh has lots of mucus, mix half a pack of orange-flavoured Mucolator (Abbott) in 3 oz water and feed him. That'll be the reaction. Ahhh, how innocent they are.... mua hahaha! It tastes quite pleasant actually, he's just new to it, and it worked. Also called acetylcysteine, it breaks down the mucus and helps secrets the sputum out through the air passage a.k.a cough. Safe for infants as far as I know. Some prefer the chinese medicine, but I'd prefer to know what exactly goes into his tummy...chinese medicine no product information wan. I've came across something like zygoflorecea intimilis....0.5%, chikumillecea milsofloris... 4%...whatthehellarethey. Anyway I just made those up, but it sound something like that.
But the facial excpression you get... is priceless. Just get your camera ready.

I left my heart... in Ubud Bali

Indomie Instant Noodle Chicken Flavour: $0.80
Private villa: $132/nite
Slurping hot bouncy indomie while paddling in the pool: Priceless...

It was worth every rupiah. This is the place of ultimate pampering and relaxation. So here is my story:
Me and me dear hubby needs a short getaway.I booked the flight online during a mad SIA promotion, S$98 per person! Then I searched for place to stay. Hotels, resorts yada yada, they looked like typical hotel rooms. But one special feature about Bali is that it boasts many many beauuuuutiful villas. So I thought, since all the way there, might as well experience the villa living. I booked two. First two nights were spent at Villa Wanakerta (see pic of semi-outdoor bathtub) and the consecutive 2 nights at Nefatari Villas which comes with a private pool ( see pic ). And shopping is terrific because I personally like wooden, and stone-carving crafts, which were plentiful there...streets and streets of them, from balinese art, indonesian batik to essential oils and spa sets. The Balinese are one of the kindest people I've met. From the moment you arrive at the villa, the staff is at your service day and night. They take you to makan, shopping or wherever you request in Ubud area, at ANY time.
We also managed to sneak in a must-do activity in Bali...we were whisked off to a nice cozy spa salon where we were massaged, rubbed, oiled, masked, scrubbed and finally soaked in a tub of warm water with flower petals all around.... together.

There is nowhere else I'd like to go... and I think it is a lifetime experience. Just once is enough to leave my heart in Bali.

Jingle time!

Am I eligible for Santa's naughty and nice list? Coz, I've been a really good girl this year! I had a baby and I changed his diapers.
If that's not enough, I changed my spending habits, and saved tonnes of money for those diapers that get soiled in a day. This is a major achievement for a woman if you ask me, it is like asking the men to quit peeing standing up.
It has been an eventful year for me. And if you're reading this, my buddies my pals, thank you for being there for me all the way, thru gatherings, phonecalls, sms-es, emails and online chats.
So, jingle time is thanks-giving time. And I'd like to make a tribute to my beloved Gioey which was kidnapped without demand for ransom aka stolen during my confinement month (bloody @#$%^ thief, hope he/she gets a rare humping disease). To Gioey, wherever you are, I hope you found a happier home, many goodies to chew on and lots of bitches to love you.

Almost Here

I've heard this duet song by Brian MacFadden and Delta Goodrem a few times but only recently I paid attention to the words, and I think it is quite realistic, and sad in a kind of way. Guys, go talk with your woman, and BE THERE completely.
So here's the lyrics, middle part excluded or else you say I cheong hei. Click on the post title above to listen to the song.
Did I hear you right?
Cause I thought you said
Let's think it over
You have been my life
And I never planned
Growing old without you
Shadows bleeding through the light
Where the love once shined so bright
Came without a reason
Don't let go on us tonight
Love's not always black and white
Haven't I always loved you?
But when I need you
You're almost here
And I know that's not enough
And when I'm with you
I'm close to tears
'cause your only almost here
Brian: Well I never knew how far behind I'd left you
Delta: And when I hold you, you're almost here
Brian: Well I'm sorry that I took our love for granted

Brian & Delta: And now I'm with you, I'm close to tears
Brian: Cause I know I'm almost here
Brian & Delta: Only almost here

Those travelling in and out of Singapore for work everyday, I salute you. Whether you driving in a 10000 horsepower VVCTi, or taking bus,train,bus again,walk,then cab, then walk, then bus again, coz that 10000 horsepower VVCTi and the bus ain't move an inch at the Singapore Woodlands Checkpoint. I salute you... because I'm also one of those tens of thousand flocking into this little island for my daily bread and butter. I'm sure KL and it's surrounding region of 100km radius is the same. And all these expressways have names and abbreviations... I think we should call the causeway, KNNCCB, because I'm sure many people have hollered it in the privacy of their 10000 horsepower VVCTi to themselves or at the hooligan motorcyclists. Gawd, they are another topic of discussion. Anyway, it is sad when you don't see the sun in your own country. What to do...
