Combating flu/cold

I caught a flu lately and it's really irritating. Well actually it's not really a serious kinda flu, just that I sneeze alot and thus cause runny nose. I know taking Vitamin C is good but apart from that, there're lots of natural common food which can help combat flu too. Here's what I found from this website.

1. Black/Green Tea
I dint know green tea helps! Now more reason for me to drink green tea! ;)

2. Garlic

I love garlic and I can top it with plain rice, seriously. And I think you'll agree that garlic is the best thing to eat with bak kut teh ;) The only bad thing about it is, have to deal with a smelly mouth later :P

3. Oyster
Oyster? Seriously? Well, I don't think it's a common food anyway, and I only eat cheese baked oysters cause I'm afraid of the raw taste.

4. Yogurt

Yogurt has been my favourite snacks, Imma stock up my fridge with lots of them now!

5. Orange-fleshed vegetables
Pumpkins and sweet potatoes are 2 great sources! Not really a pumpkin lover but now have to try to love it.....

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…
