To me, the best compliment comes from my precious little girl, Crystal. One day after fetching her from school, both of us were waiting in the car for the daddy who was meeting a friend in his office. Out of a sudden, she hugged me by using her little hands around my neck and there came a sweet voice "Mummy, you are the best mummy ever in the whole wide world, I love you mummy".
"I love you too, girl" I replied. Then I asked her, "But mummy always scolds you ah?"
She looked at me and replied "because I naughty bah! and.. I don't want you to die!" She showed a sad face after saying this.
To reassure her and take these insecure feelings out from her, I said "Oh, don't worry, mummy is not going to die, mummy want to see you and your mei mei Pearl grow up and become useful persons."
She puzzled for a while and asked "what is a useful person, mummy?"
In order for her to understand what I meant in a little mind sense, I said "to be a useful person means, listen to your daddy and mummy, study hard, help others, do not cheat or lie to people....OK?"
"OK" she replied. "Can I kiss you, mummy?"
"Can..." I replied. Then she gave me a tender kiss on my cheek.
"I love daddy too and why daddy so slow...?"
"Little while more, your daddy is coming..."
It was so sweet and pure, it touches my heart so much that this will last forever. Undoubtedly, it's the best compliment in a my life....

A princess strawberry cheese cake for the party at night (it supposed to be a pink colour one and I got 5% discount for the mistake the cake house made).

We decided to bring Crystal to a Chinese doctor on the 3rd day of New Year (glad that they open) early in the morning and was confirmed that the rashes on the chest and back were actually false measles and Crystal should avoid angin and heatiness stuff in her diet. There were no oral medications given except some herbs for bathing for 3 days and thereafter some herbs for cooling. We were so pleased that her fever went off the next day after the 1st bathe. Thank God for that!!
Herbs for bathing (need to be boiled for half an hour, though..)
Herbs that have cooling effect (Dried Chrysanthemum & Kim Yun Fa) add some rock sugar for better taste
Just thought we could get live back to normal after all the stressful days, Pearl’s turn again. What a start of the Rat year for us, I wonder??? We bathe Pearl with the same herbs in case she got the same virus. So much so we tried to avoid them get close to each other but the virus is highly contagious that there is not much we could do especially when they are in the same house all the time. OMRON Gentle Temp Instant Ear Thermometer MC-510 comes in handy again. It makes life so much easier when body temperature can be obtained with a few clicks. pearl's fever still comes on and off despite having flu, really need to monitor closely.
