Aromatherapy essential oil

Few months ago, I bought a rosemary essential oil, an oil warmer and some fragranced sticks from Living Cabin. Though the sticks smell nice, but I realised the smoke is kinda awful (mind you, I have sensitive nose). At that moment, I regretted on such impulse buying, and just put the essential oil aside.

Recently, I smell something nice from SIL's bedroom, it's her aromatherapy essential oil. So I decided to dig out the essential oil and warmer, and bought a box of soy candles from Watson and started to make full use of it...

Usually, I light the candles about 30 mins before bedtime, so that the nice scent filled the whole room and helps me sleep better, but actually my ultimate purpose of doing so is to fill the whole bedroom with nice aroma scent (I like anything which smell nice) I'm loving this practice and planning to invest on more essential oil ^^

I think most of you know that aromatherapy helps to boost your mood, relieve stress and energize your body. It’s also used to treat certain emotional and physical conditions.
Different fragrances have different functions too. For example, lavender and chamomile help in releasing stress and anxious. Peppermint helps you to maintain focus and stimulates our mind. Vanilla oils help in reducing cravings for sweets and thus resulting in weight loss (oh really?)

Try it and let me know the outcomes! :)

  4. Hi Hayley, I love these and have been lighting them, both incense and candles many years....but not often...
    mostly in Winter to cheer us up when it gets dark by 4pm.
    I love Rose or Jasmine.
    Have a nice day, Lee.

  6. I love the lavender smell and i used to have these oil/sticks around the house. However after I had Ashley I stopped using them cos I didn't have time after she was born. Perhaps I should start using them again now.

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…

The unwelcomed birthday presents

(Note: Quite a long post, I skipped my afternoon nap to write this so please read everything ya!! xDD)


Past 2 weeks were really exhausting for me.

It all started on 20th April when Aden developed a mild fever, he was tired and sleepy, I let him skipped school for 2 days.

He seldom takes afternoon nap, when he does, it means he is not feeling well :(

The next day, it was Toby's turn😢
Poor boy, his temperature reached 39° and it was on and off~
Then I notice he started to have these cute double eyelids for a few days~ Haha not sure why~
He was feeling really unwell, very lethargic, no appetite and super duper clingy to me!

Then both brothers started to cough badly 😢😢 
So on the 25th, I brought them to the pediatrician again.  He examined both boys and suspected it could be pneumonia and even dengue (because their fever were on and off). Suggested to get admitted right away.
I wasn't sure if that's necessary because I knew once admitted, have to stay for at least 5 days (h…
