I am gonna club whoever says doing laundry is therapeutic. Oh yes, some bitch said it once many many years back when we were at the peak of our blogging frenzy. We are no longer friends with each other after some major disagreement, lol. And no, not over laundry. Issshhhh.... i digress. Let's get back to the laundry topic. Now, here i am, sitting and waiting for the second load to finish washing. There'll be another load by the time #2 comes back from school. Aitelyu, sometimes, when we look at those laundry detergent ads on tv. Those cilakak manufacturers really make it look like laundry can just walk into the washing machine on their own, get washed, and climb out onto the lines, back into the wardrobe folded and ironed. My gawd... so many different kinds of loads to wash almost everyday. Heavy soiled one la, colored ones la, whites la.... Any silai would go siao in no time la lidat. Lei wa hai mai.

I no longer enjoy CNY. The days leading to it are dreadful and piling on more pressure than necessary. As i'm the only other woman living in this household, naturally, i'm expected to cook for the family, starting with reunion dinner. No, I dont like being expected to cook. I dont enjoy cooking to begin with. Further more, I have to sit at the same table eating with people I dont like and pretending to be merry half the time. How depressing can that be. Ya, set aside the differences for at least a few days mah, right. Of cos, i'll survive. Dont I always....

I cant leave the house for a few short hours these days. I came home to a bloody 6yo with a deep wide gash on his head after #1 threw a stool at him. In a way, very thankful for it did not hit his face nor eye. Kids... *shakes head*
I disinfected the wound with a few drops of T36-c5 Melaleuca oil. I told my boy he can scream out loud if it stings. He didnt even wince at all. The only pain he felt was when i cleansed the surrounding areas of blood using filtered water (chlorine-free) and diluted sol-u-mel after a while. Even that, was from the pressure, and not from the solution.
After that, i applied Melagel (round disc) to seal up the gash. The high concentration of Melaleuca oil provides antiseptic and soothing power, preventing infection for a second time. This helps the wound to heal and repairs itself.
Melagel contains wheat germ oil, vitamin A, D3 and vitamin E, provides excellent antioxidant power to help wounds heal faster. Melagel prevents scarring too.
The natural cocoa butter helps soften the rough, damaged stratum corneum, while beeswax seals the wound to avoid contact with water and other sources of harm, preventing contact pain.
Melagel is chemical-free, doesnt sting, seals, protects and heals. It is safe and natural for:
2) Bug bites
3) Bee stings
4) Minor burns
5) Minor scratches
6) Irritated skin
7) Minor cuts
8) Minor scrapes
For November: You can get Melagel twin-pack for Rm39. Saving you Rm5.
Normal price of Melagel is Rm22/disc.
T36-c5 Melaleuca oil is Rm24/15ml bottle
Delivery charges of Rm10/order applies to all.
Drop a comment to learn how you can buy it.

I have never liked washing school shoes. Too much soaking will cause the rubber sides to come off. Soak too little, i'll have to scrub it a lot causing the fabric to fray very fast. I also hate to apply those liquid shoe whiteners as a lot ends up on my black car seat. More cleaning at the end of the day.
A good friend of mine used Ecosense Prespot to wash her 4 kids' school shoes recently. She was very pleased with the results and told me all about it. That got me running to do the same on my kid's school shoes even though it's the school holidays.
It's very easy to spray the pre-diluted Prespot onto the shoes. The foaming spray head ensured the solution stayed on the shoes surface to do its job. I left it for a few minutes, then rinsed the Prespot off and scrubbed the shoes lightly.
I am very pleased with the results myself as i end up with clean shoes (especially at the rubber sides) without much effort. I just placed my order for 4 bottles (max per account) as it's on the 40pts promo for this month. Ecosense users, do not miss out on this November offer, ya.

You know these people, they claim they are so busy each day that they cant even reply to your thread. But they keep asking you questions and expect you to provide them with an answer promptly. And they keep forgetting what you've told them cos they were too busy with other stuffs and keep on asking expecting you to keep sending them the same info multiple times. Go die la!

Have been doing a lot of amigurumis lately. Well, good news and bad news. Good news is that, am doing something that i'm truly passionate about. Bad news is, my backache is killing me, and my eye-sight is not getting any better.
Yesterday, I wanted to do something different for a change. And so, decided to crochet this lace cotton collar with obe of the many balls of yarn I keep stashed away in my cupboard. I like what I made very much. What about you?
To follow my projects, pop over to Samm's Amigurumi Cafe. And oh, dont forget to "like" my page, ya.

Minus the 2 weeks term holidays, my big kid has been at his new school for almost 2 months. Since then, he's made tremendous progress academically. He scored 3As for English, Math and Science, and 2Ds for both BM pemahaman and penulisan papers. I'm happy with that since he used to obtain single digit results for both his bm papers at his old school. He's now doing Yr5 studies together with his older classmates who are a few years older than him.

A lot has happened in this household of late. All due to the fact the old folks here allow one of their daughters and kids to come and go as they please every day. The elder boy causes a lot of problems and mischiefs when he's back from school at noon. Like peep at me from the top of the adjoining wall opening where both bathroom and toilet share a common fluorescent lamp, like pee into the water container that came with my iron, and then pour the contents into the iron. The daughter and two other kids come over around 7pm, when bathroom usage is at its peak, kicking a big fuss whenever i happen to be inside. The kitchen is just right next to my bedroom, and we have to bear with a lot of noise till they leave. There's no peace at all as she likes to yell at the kids rushing them through bath and dinner for tuition. I got fed up one day and gave everyone a dose of my laser tongue though not directly, but enough to keep them away till now. Today's the first day of the school's third semester, and the big boy is still over here. Pray hard the rest stay where they are and let us live here in peace. Just now, hubby came back into the room looking rather upset. He had a chat with his folks and apparently, the father still refused to believe the kid poured his pee into my iron. Well, he was also ignorant enough to say the kid didnt manage to see anything when he peeped at me. Instead of focusing on what the did, he chose to debate on whether he saw anything or not. So, if he didnt see anything, it's alright and he's off the hook. Sure, i dont really care cos that's not my kid. Let him get bolder and go rape someone next time then. Hubby's mother also chose to side them each time and denied everything. Oh well, let those fidiots continue to live in denial and i'll leave it to Karma to deal with them.
