One of the reality TV show that my kids love to watch is Biggest Loser. For those that have not heard of the show, it is a TV program on obese people and their challenge is “How much they can loose”. The winning is determined by how much weight the participant lost from dieting to exercising and of course diet supplement like phentermine is not allowed. From the show, my kids now know foods that contained lots of sugar is a no-no and not forgetting fatty or oily stuff.

Between 5 siblings, I have the worst case of stretch marks after my Mum. For my case, I blame it on weight gain during my first pregnancy. From 40kg, I put on another 20kgs by the 9th month. Mom blame it on carrying twins. No doubt, by carrying twins your tummy tends to get larger than usual. Woman nowadays are lucky as there are cream for reducing stretch marks sold in the market. During our time, we only have itchy skin to scratch!
I have a series of back pain ever since I gave birth to my 2nd child. The pain gradually disappear after a few weeks. It’s been coming and going ever since. I’ve seek treatment at the chiropractor but their fee is too expensive. It is about RM70.00 per session. One of the Doctor blamed it on Yoga and suggested that I switch to a orthopedic mattress.
This story was told to me by my Sister. A year after the passing of her late father-in-law, one day one of the siblings dreamt of their late father. In the dream, the late father told them of a treasure that he kept underground in the earth. Good thing the siblings is not stupid to start digging the ground. They bought the metal detectors sale to locate the treasure (I presume it must be some gold or anything that is made from metal?) But sad to say, they found nothing. If it were you, will you do what they are doing? I mean to believe a dream?
There is no certain age as when a girl hit puberty but it was somewhere around 12 years old. If I am not wrong, I hit puberty at that age. But it seem like my 10 years old daughter has started now. Isn’t that a bit early? When things go out of the norm, people will start pointing fingers. So lets just blame it on food. Good thing she did not start growing hairs at where it is not supposed to. That would definitely freak me out. One thing I hope she did not in heritage is her Daddy’s acne prone skin. That way, she will have one less chemical on her face from the acne products.
This past week has been quite a stressful week. The new house is under renovation and we are constantly in the ‘making-decision’ mode. Don’t know how my hubby feel but for me, I almost want to pengsan ade! That is because my brain drained more juices than he is! He even promoted me to ‘Site Supervisor’ *rolling eye*. On the other hand, I lost a bit of weight and Mom thought I was on diet. Hey MOM, I know there are safe diet pills out there but you know, all these crap is even draining fats outta my body!
First of all, you will be asking what is electronic pick pocketing. Electronic pick pocket is when the thief using radio wave to steal information that is stored in your credit cards, passports, and other ID cards. Thief will simply waved their device near to your bags and the device will captured all information that is stored in the RFID chips. So how do you prevent this? Get a rfid wallet that block the signer wave from being captured.
I am quite lucky as my company allowed us to park our kids medical insurance under the company’s scheme. Which means the company paid my portion and I top up the balance for my kids. The first few of years of doing that (about 7 years ago), the premium I paid is about RM300 and it gradually increased to about RM600. In that 7 years, we had few claims done by the kids mainly for common sickness like viral infection.
However, this year the premium has gone quite absorbing! I have to pay about RM1000 for the kids! Since they are older and less prone to sickness, I was thinking to stop buying medical insurance for them. But you know, they always say “just in case”. We don’t know when disaster will strike. Thinking back, during our time, we don’t live with a medical insurance at all. Not even a life insurance. If you sit down and give it a proper thought, is it necessary to have a medical insurance? I would think not.
I was having a random conversation with my Sister. She asked me to help her with her thesis. Being the ‘brainless’ one, I told her if I am able to help her with her homework, I might as well go back to school and study webmastering. My Mom upon hearing that jumped into the conversation, support me wholeheartedly and volunteer to look after my children. That makes me think twice of signing up with Accredited Online Schools. But then, soon I discovered my interest that is Photography.
