If I could, I Would...

My girl is back!  And she is getting slimmer and slimmer... Really kind of worrying.... As parents or should I say, as a mother, I like to see my kids fleshy and bubbly...

This time she came back complaining about no appetite... in other words, "cheong foong"... (wind in stomach)  Went to the pharmacy to get this mortilium for her and heard a remark from the pharmacist saying that many people were buying this mortilium these days....

(Mortilium is for treating nausea, full bloated stomach, to relieve bletchness....)

Well, I guess we ate a bit too much during the festive season...fried stuff, oily dishes..etc..etc....

Back to my girl's non appetite, I told her to take the mortilium after food... well, I was wrong!  It should be BEFORE food.... no wonder it was not working on her after taking twice!  Sorry, Girl... I should have asked the pharmacist...
No wonder you didn't have appetite...
All you want was the bun...
AND
Mom here had to end up eating all these....
If I could, I would like to take your place...
And you in mine.... 
at least then I know you would be eating well then...

  1. I think she gastric la due to stress like me. Motilium just to reduce wind only. Try dopedone better for wind and famortine for gastric acid. Best is to see doc.

  2. No worries! My girl came back from Sg Petani looking like a Somalian refugee no matter how hard we tried to fatten her while she was home. Yup! Stress, late nights/mornings, no proper food available, nobody to make sure they eat regularly etc...etc...etc... Never mind, she will survive - mine did!

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
