老媽子之歌 The mom's overture

Auntie Audrey shares with mummy this funny video. Think it speaks so truthfully about the communication problems between mother and child. Mummy wonders if Ryan and Demi will one day tell me off, Mum you're Out oredi :-P

Signs of stroke

Got this information from mummy email today... Just to share share :)

STROKE: Remember The 1st Three Letters.... S.T.R.

My nurse friend sent this and encouraged me to
post it and spread the word. I agree.

If everyone can remember something this simple,
we could save some folks. Seriously..

Please read:


During a BBQ, a friend stumbled and took a little fall,
she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered
to call paramedics) .....she said she had just tripped
over a brick because of her new shoes.

They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of
food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Ingrid went
about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.

Ingrid's husband called later telling everyone that his
wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 pm Ingrid
passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ.
Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke,
perhaps Ingrid would be with us today. Some don't die,
they end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.

It only takes a minute to read this...

A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim
within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a
stroke... totally . He said the trick was getting a stroke
recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient
medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.

Thank God for the sense to remember the
'3' steps, STR . Read and Learn!

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify.
Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The
stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when
people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke .

Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke
by asking three simple questions:

S * Ask the individual to SMILE.
T * Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE
(Coherently) i.e. It is sunny out today)
R * Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks,
call 999/911 immediately and describe the
symptoms to the dispatcher.

New Sign of a Stroke ------- Stick out Your Tongue

NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person
to 'stick' out his tongue.. If the tongue is 'crooked',
if it goes to one side or the other , that is also an
indication of a stroke.

A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this
e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that
at least one life will be saved.

Demi Puke :X

Too quick to mark Demi's growth, she threw up her morning milk on the second day of her 11th month. Like a merlion, she threw up every drop of fluid together with some yellowish substance. Yuck! She was running a temperature...

But mummy had promised to visit Auntie Aggie at 10am today. She needs some kids to grace the opening of her daughter's new flat at Jurong. According to the fengshui master, this will bring prosperity and kids to the new couple :)
So no matter what, we had to get there on time. We wouldn't want to spoil people's fengshui in any case :-P

During the visit, Demi threw up a couple more time. At last, the visit ended at about 11.45am. We rushed home to settle Demi as by now, she was naked and had no dry clothes for change. Luckily she managed to sleep soundly in sling on the way home.

Demi hit the sarong cradle as soon as we reached home. Cranky at first thus mummy gave her about 2 ounces of milk, just to try... Think she might have missed her cradle, Demi slept soundly throughout and was clean for the rest of the day. No more puke. 2 more feedings and 3 poos, she was back to her normal self :D Phew!

Festive Fun

Our family visited the Singapore River Hongbao 2008 on the 3rd day of the lunar new year. This was such a big mistake for a family with young kids like us. It was flooded with people + lots of sweat & bad smell (smelly tofu). Only managed to let Ryan took the car ride that cost S$7.50 per ride (so ex!!!!)

The year of Rat

Mummy was on leave from 4 February as auntie Jenny needed time to prepare for the coming chinese new year. Just these couple of days are sufficient to confirm that mummy is NOT fitted to be a SAHM. The constant needs of a baby and a preschooler are
simply devastating! The initial plan of clean up the house whenever the two precious nap could never be carried out. Mummy hit the sack whenever possible. FAINTZ!

Never mind then... Usually no visitor is coming to our house during this festive period. The cleaning part can be simplified. Hahaha... lazy bones :-P

Sending wishes to all, A Prosperous Rat Year ahead!!! HUAT AH!!!
