That's how it looked like after slicing it.
I got a Superman T-shirt while Clet got an Orange T-shirt. We would like to thank Edward for his thoughtfulness. He looked pretty exhausted after hours flight from the Philippines.
What Your Easter Egg Says About You?
You are truly optimistic, open, and hopeful.
And your optimism gives you the courage to live life adventurously.
You love new experiences, ideas, and challenges.
You see life as a fluid, growing process.
Clet was really worried that he couldn't walk the next day and out of curiosity he went to find some berries juices at Merdeka Supermarket just before it closes. Among other berries juices, he chose the "Sunfresh Apple Cranberry Juice Drink" for RM4.90 per 1 litre pack. It is made from reconstituted apple and cranberry juice, sugar, citric acid and flavouring. Believe it or not, the swell as well as the pain have obviously reduced and he felt much relieve the night itself.
Study has showed that cranberries had high antioxidants contain than any other fruit. Several of cranberry's polyphenol antioxidants are procyanidins, the same family of pigments that make cherries red. However, because cranberries are so tart, their juice has to be diluted and sweetened to be palatable. A diluted Cranberry-juice cocktail contains just 27 percent of berry juice is still the second-most potent source of antioxidants after grape juice. As such it is a good source of antioxidant for the prevention of urinary tract infections as well as to fight cancer, heart related diseases, diabetes, and also help to increase the high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol—the so-called good cholesterol too.
Gout sufferers should try this out to feel results.

Just yesterday morning from 10.00am to 11.00am, there were four properties auctioned by Mega Auction House at 1st Floor, Bangunan 1120, Sunny Garden, Mile 1.5, Jalan Tuaran, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. One of the properties had been successfully bid and sold at the drop of the hammer while the other three properties has no bidders therefore the sales were not successful. Here are the properties concerned:

I am sure as a typical Malaysian, you could find a packet or two or more instant noodles some way in your kitchen ready to fill up our hungry stomach anytime. Besides the well known MAGGI brand, there are other brands which are equally delicious, it also depends on how it is cooked. Mi-Sedap, Myojo and Mamee brands of instant noodles are also well-loved by both Malaysians and Singaporeans. A study conducted by the World Instant Noodles Association (WINA) shows that malaysians are among the top 11 on the demand of instant noodles while China, Hong Kong being top on the list.

With the rate of our children outgrown their shoes, guess most of us are tempting to buy shoes that are one size larger so they can wear them a little longer but shoes that are too big can cause a child to trip and develop foot problems while trying to walk in shoes that are too large. Obviously, it is also problematic with shoes that are too small.
Here are some tips from when choosing shoes for children:
1. Children's shoes should some fastening system, like laces, try to avoid backless or slip-on shoes for kids.
2. Shoes made from canvas or leather are more durable and they are of breathable materials, they will help to keep the child's foot cooler and dryer, helping to prevent blisters, discomfort, and smelly shoes.
3. While they may look cute and pretty, always avoid heels on children's shoes. Not only is it difficult for kids to walk in heels, they are particularly bad for proper foot development. When it comes to children's shoes, stick with flats and even soles.
4. Look for a pattern or textured sole, as this will provide traction and help prevent your child from easily slipping on slick surfaces, on top of that soles should be sturdy and thick enough to protect the feet from pain and injury, but the sole also needs to be flexible too so that it will bend with the foot.

After the show time, he briefed me a bit on what the movie was about, sound like he enjoyed the AMERICAN GANGSTER, starred by Denzel Washington, Russell Crowe, and many others.
Here's the story, "Nobody used to notice Frank Lucas (Oscar winner Washington), the quiet driver to one of the inner city's leading black crime bosses. But when his boss suddenly dies, Frank exploits the opening in the power structure to build his own empire and create his own version of the American Dream. Through ingenuity and a strict business ethic, he comes to rule the inner-city drug trade, flooding the streets with a purer product at a better price. Lucas outplays all of the leading crime syndicates and becomes not only one of the city's mainline corrupters, but part of its circle of legit civic superstars. Richie Roberts (Oscar winner Crowe) is an outcast cop close enough to the streets to feel a shift of control in the drug underworld. Roberts believes someone is climbing the rungs above the known Mafia families and starts to suspect that a black power player has come from nowhere to dominate the scene. Both Lucas and Roberts share a rigorous ethical code that sets them apart from their own colleagues, making them lone figures on opposite sides of the law. The destines of these two men will become interwined as they approach a confrontation where only one of them can come out on top". Visit here for more preview http://www.americangangster.net/.

And barely 72 hours from my reminder to Clet, I was introduced to yet another MLM company called ZHULIAN by my valued customer at her office today. Her sponsor did a health check on me as soon as I arrived there by using a weighing machine similar to the one used by HerbaLife besides this one has got a little digital reader that I have to hold up straight while the machine is “downloading” information from my body. Glad to know that my biological age (ie. an organism's physical state as it ages) is 5 years younger than my actual age.
I was told that ZHULIAN is a Malaysian owned direct selling company whose products include fashion jewellery, food & beverages, home care, nutritional health, personal care, beauty care, home tech and accessories. Most of the products are manufactured in house. The rewards to the achievers are similarly good if not better; however, what I am looking for now is a truly working from home business that I enjoy doing which eventually allows me to have more time for my family without having to worry about money. I never enjoy doing MLM business (it gave me so much stress mentally, physically and financially) and so for that matter this is not a business for me I must say.
And that’s the reason why I start blogging :Q

We then try to sterilize the bottles and teats by using the sterilising tablets from Boots. In fact at first I was not pleased with the smell of the solution and there is also doubt of any side effect for my baby by immersing the bottles in this "smelly" water. After reading the directions for use and the benefit of using this method, I am willing to give it a try for it says “Convenient, Safe and Proven Effective”. Guess what, I have been using the product since with that one try. Now I just clean the girls’ bottles and utensils with dish washing liquid and immerse them into the solution until the next feed. It is so much convenient for me. No worries about burning fingers and cracking bottles.
A box of Boots Feeding Bottle Steriliser tablets consist of 32 or 64 tablets, can be bought at any hypermarkets. The directions for use is very simple:

The party was attended by family members and friends of Lesley and Allison at The Grand Port View Restaurant. Datuk Yong Teck Lee and Melanie were there to greet everyone too…(campaigning on the eve of the election).
It is also with such occasion that I have got the opportunity to meet up with my ex-Innosabah’s colleagues, present there were Angie, Vivien, June, Jenny and Doris (we shared the same table). The kids also enjoyed the night playing with the balloons and chasing each other around.
Qing,Crystal and Pearl enjoyed each other company

Since we know there is no way that we could stop our kids from touching and grabbing toys from the shelves at the departmental stores, touching the floor, or the table or chair at the eatery, where dusts and germs are everywhere only our eyes can not see. It is quite impossible to wash our hands immediately all the time, that’s when a bottle of Quicklean Instant Antibacterial hand Gel comes in handy. It can be placed in our bag everywhere we go, it can be used instantly on hands without rinsing. This bottle of Quicklean is given by my sister in law as she knows we have got two very curious daughters, especially Crystal with thump sucking habit and Pearl eating with hands habit.
After experiencing few of such situations, hubby and I would try to avoid going near to the areas where playgrounds are situated or even avoid going to complexes with playgrounds altogether.
We also wonder whether any maintenance to those playgrounds. Hygiene is another factor to consider too. We always make sure to clean the kids’ hands after visiting the playground, can not afford to pay visit to clinic every now and then.

The StemLife leaflet appeared in front of me while I was tidying up my bag a couple of months later. After browsing through the leaflet, I find this was something amazing and that I was eager to know more. We sought both our gynae and child practitioner's opinions on this and their responses are that if you could afford it why not...After much thoughts, I told myself that this is the best thing I could do for my daughter. I quickly get hold of a sales person to brief me through and signed up almost immediately. I was in my 34 weeks pregnancy that time. I told myself that if I don’t do it this time then I never will.
There are proven records show that stem cells are used to treat many prevalent diseases in the world nowadays, especially leukemia, thalassaemia, hear disease and diabetic ulcers. Studies are being carried out in finding the use of stem cells for the treatment of other deadly diseases. Countries like Korea and Taiwan have poured out millions of dollars by their governments in support of the research. I personally feel that this is the best protection that I can give to my child.
I would encourage parents to seriously consider taking this once in a life time opportunity to store the umbilical cord blood stem cells for their little ones and the family. IT COULD SAVE LIFE…..
There are two Stem Cell Banking companies that I know of in Malaysia. They are StemLife and Cryocord. Please view their websites at http://www.stemlife.com/ and http://www.cryocord.com.my/ for further information.
The fees involved then was RM2,500.00 (can be paid by 3 instalments). Annual storage fees is RM250.00.

Artists are messy bunch. Colour pencils and papers all around the floor when her inspiration flows. She is very persistence in getting the results she wanted and tends to get frustrated when she could not get the desired results. Her hard works did not disappoint her during the colouring competitions both in school and outside especially the one organized by the OCBC Bank in 2007. She got 1st and she was stunt with the outcome. The mummy and the daddy too…
some of Crystal's drawings
Pearl, at the age of slightly over two is following her sister closely. She started to scribble at first and now she is able to draw as well, her favourite drawings are faces, sun and balloons.
We make sure that the type of crayons and colour pencils that the girls used are non- toxic. The most commonly used ones are from Staedtler and Faber Castell. The daddy once introduced them to water colour painting, it was so messy and requires a lot of supervisions as Pearl is too little to handle it. We have to put that on hold for now..
