Let's Learn Bahasa & Cantonese - Iced Coffee

~ Posted on Friday, February 5, 2016 at 5:18 AM ~

Ever since I started kindergarten at 6 years old, I have been attending public schools (main language is Bahasa Malaysia) and during my earlier years, I mixed around with a lot of Malay friends and even spoke Bahasa with my elder brother at home (he also attends public schools), even to this day. So Bahasa Malaysia used to be my main language other than Cantonese and later on English (brushed up more when I met my hubby then boyfriend through snail mails, I had to practise and brush up my English as he doesn't speak Cantonese) Anyway, I think it is fun to be able to practise back and sharing what I know with those of you who are interested.

And so, here goes our next lesson: Iced Coffee

Let's Learn Bahasa & Cantonese

For those of you who are more often on Facebook, you can also find the tutorials on my Facebook fan page. I have created a "Let's Learn Bahasa & Cantonese!" album to store the phrases. Enjoy learning!

Sharing - Every Parent Needs To See This Baby Photo

~ Posted on Thursday, February 4, 2016 at 7:38 AM ~

I came across this article which I must definitely share with you guys. For your convenience, I have copied the excerpts from the article here:

Scott Walker, a Kansas-based father of two, is sharing a photo of his baby’s foot for a very important reason: to make sure other parents are aware of a dangerous condition, and know what to do in case it happens to their child.

 Scott and his wife, Jessica, welcomed baby Molly into their family back in September. She was born a few weeks early and experienced complications immediately after her birth, but recovered in hospital and is now happy and healthy.But at a recent lunch, Scott and Jessica noticed that Molly had become agitated and ‘very upset’. They tried to calm her down using their usual techniques, but nothing was working. Molly’s parents could see she was overheating, so took off her socks. That’s when they noticed something strange.

A piece of hair had become wrapped around one of Molly’s toes so tightly that it had cut into her skin and caused it to swell.

This condition is called a hair tourniquet, and can cut off a baby’s circulation, causes significant pain, and can even lead to infection and the loss of fingers and toes. The condition can also occur on genitals.

Thankfully for Molly, Jessica caught the problem in time and was able to remove the hair with a magnifying glass and a pair of tweezers. ‘The hair managed to cut all the way through Molly’s skin,’ wrote Scott on Facebook, ‘completely around her toe, but it could have been worse had it gone much longer untreated, or if the hair wasn’t accessible.’

Molly’s parents want to spread the word about the condition and its risks. They encourage parents to always check fingers and toes if their baby is ever entirely inconsolable – and to take them along to the hospital if the hair isn’t easily removed.

Product Review - TheBigBox.Asia

~ Posted on Wednesday, February 3, 2016 at 8:08 AM ~

I have been cutting down on doing product reviews since 2014 and only accepted those that I feel will definitely fit into our family dynamics (especially books on parenting or homeschooling stuff, family products, something along those genre)

Few months ago, I received an offer to review some products carried by TheBigBox.Asia. After browsing through their website and seeing the yummylicious treats, I decided to go ahead with the review.

I requested for the following items for my review after some serious browsing and selecting and shortlisting a couple of times the items I wanted:

TheBigBox.Asia

One cool thing I must mentioned is how impressed I was when I received the parcel from TheBigBox.Asia. The treats are still chilled cool inside the parcel, nicely packed for maximum pristine condition.

TheBigBox.Asia

The first item to be whacked cleanly by my 3 krakens of course is the Um Bongo 8 fruit juice. It comes neatly in a pack of 3, each pack is 200ml. My krakens slurped everything without leaving me even a drop to try!!! Must be that good for them to slurp cleanly so fast!

TheBigBox.Asia

Next item we reviewed was the Elle & Vire Crème Dessert Chocolate. Just a little FYI, Elle & Vire’s dairy products can be found in more than 120 countries. Their products have become a reference for quality with consumers and professional chefs/caterers the world over.

I chose this as it comes in a tub of 4, just nice for myself and my 3 krakens (so sorry dear hubby! LOL!!!!) Now how does this crème dessert chocolate taste like? Liquid pudding chocolate but still jelly-like feel. Not bad. My 3 krakens licked clean each cup. I love that the content is almost filled to the brim and the nifty little foldable plastic spoon that comes with each tub.

TheBigBox.Asia

The next item has got to be my favorite, the Elledi Party Wafers Cocoa Cream! This pack of 250g bite sized cocoa wafers filled with velvety cream is just so so good! I had to try real hard to refrain myself from finishing everything in one seating! Also, as ashamed as I am to admit this, I actually hide this pack away from being seen by our 3 krakens, only to take it out to savor bit by bit at midnight after my krakens have gone to bed, deep asleep hahahahaa... Anyway, I can practically taste the chocolate cream layered in each bite sized cocoa wafers, so rich and filling! Yumssss!! Two thumbs up!

TheBigBox.Asia

The following item that I would like to share with you guys is the ERU Naturel low fat cheese spread. Forgive my lack of knowledge but when I first tried this cheese spread, I was totally mind blown as I gently spread out the cheese on a slice of bread, it is quite runny when I first put it onto the bread but then I discovered that the cheese sort of hardened/liquefied to be like those cheese slices texture. Like magic! The cheese is not too heavy or too salty, just nice for sandwich bread or to be eaten with crunchy crackers.

TheBigBox.Asia

I also get to review the Delacre teatime snack box and the Delacre Delichoc Chocolat Lait. It comes with an assortment of Delacre’s classic icons including marquisette, Biarritz, Russian Cigarettes and other creations like Délichoc, Mini Sprits and Nordica. Tasty selections of treats that get eaten fast by all of us.

TheBigBox.Asia

The last item is the BN 16 Framboise (Raspberry). The biscuits were made from whole-grain cereal with a delicious raspberry filling in the middle and comes in a handy reseal able package to maintain BN’s unique crispy texture. There are also vanilla and chocolate filling if you prefer to have other options.

To sum up my review, I am very grateful to be given the opportunity to try out the products from TheBigBox.Asia. Where else can you shop in the comfort of your home (or office hehehe) for treats from all over the world?

Highly recommended!
