Holy Berries

** This post is actually from 2 years ago, but it's such a holiday recipe hit, that I decided to post it again.  Enjoy!! **

 

You know it's gonna be a good day when you're strolling through the wine aisle at the grocery store on a random Saturday morning and someone's offering you a shot of vodka.  After a long week of racing…

A Crucifix In The Leg

http://www.reanaclaire.com/2011/11/crucifix-in-leg.html

 

After staying in the hospital for three nights, my sister was discharged this morning.  The bill came to RM7,395.00 without any insurance claim.  On the other hand, a patient in the same room with my sister, she broke her ankle too but her bill came to RM11,000 because she has personal accident insurance.  :)  But of course, the difference could be due…

Broken And Dislocated

Supposedly to be a happy occasion, my sister and her family went to the bride's house to congratulate her before the wedding dinner. According to my sister, the kitchen was very wet and all of a split second, she just fell and she felt something not right immediately after that... she couldn't get up at all, the pain on her ankle was too excruciating!



Immediately my brother-in-law carried her to the car... and despite the pain, she called me... and I advised her to go to a private…

A Little Less Lonely

I've always lived with in driving distance of my family.  Now that we've moved to a different state I was wondering how I would be able to handle being so far away from them.  I come from a very close nit family and I grew up with frequent "get togethers".  Isabel has also been very close with her cousin Nathan.  From the moment they were born they've seen each other almost every week for play time.  At this point they even have their own language.  …

After Thanksgiving Sale

I am totally hyped to say that my Thanksgiving was awesome. I spent it with the people I love, it was quiet and peaceful, and the food was amazing. Way to go, Mom, by the way! I skipped Black Friday because besides being broke beyond belief, I wanted to just lay around with my babies. And that is exactly what we did. My children enjoyed a 5 hour Power Rangers marathon, again, which I ain't gonna lie, I did…

Awesomeness = Grandma!

Are you a marathon shopper?  Maybe the one that get to the stores the night before a HUGE sale for the best deals?  I've seen some amazing pictures of the deals people have been getting from the Black Friday shopping trips and a part of me (a very SMALL part) wonders what it would be like.  continue

Dear 23-Year-Old Me: In All Things, Give Thanks

Congratulations, you’re married.

You’re about to enjoy a honeymoon but it won’t be long before the warm, fuzzy fairy-dust of lovey-dovey grossness will settle and you’ll clearly see the relationship you’ve entered.

You’ll bicker over someone’s driving, limited closet space, and hangers.

 

Please do continue:

Adding My Teen Driver to My Car Insurance

I was not prepared to hear the news I received the day I called my car insurance company to add my 18-year old to my policy. The customer service rep, politely told me that my policy would increase from $1200 to $2700 for six months! As you can imagine, I nearly passed out!
 
After speaking with a few people about my situation, they all suggested that it was probably because they added him as a driver of my car: a 2005 Nissan Maxima and not the car I recently got for…

Remarriage.... Me?

One of you asked whether I am considering remarriage... the answer is 100% a No, a NO.. and A NO..

One marriage is enough, two times will too much....... ooopsss...sorry, I am speaking for myself only... no offence to anyone...



On the serious note, once upon a time, I did think about it, when my kids were pretty and young, friends and relatives alike, they encouraged me to get into marriage again... but on the other hand, some jested about "now that…

Manuka Honey Versus Hospital Medication

I was told that Manuka honey is good for cough and I remember someone blogged about Manuka recently.... so this morning before going to hospital, I went to the pharmacy to get a bottle of this much-heard-about honey.



Gosh, it was not cheap though.. in fact very expensive... one small bottle of 250gm cost RM64 and the 500gm one cost RM94 ($31usd)...and after some mental calculation,  the Big Honey came home...

He's My Baby Brother!

My little brother was born today.  He woke Mom up at three o’clock in the morning because he wanted to come out of her tummy.  I was asleep so I didn’t know he was going to be born today.  When I woke up, Grandma said, “Good morning,” and told me I was a big brother today.  She made my favorite breakfast, yummy waffles with syrup and chocolate milk.  How did she know that was my…

Love, Patience and Alzheimer's

A week ago, I was watching the “Sex and the City” episode “An American Girl in Paris (Part Deux)”. The scene where Steve takes his mother to the ER and discovers she unknowingly suffered a stroke that caused her to have significant memory loss, made me think of my paternal grandmother and grandfather. 

My grandfather (known as Pa-Pa), was diagnosed with Alzheimer's before passing away in 2000 and now my Grandma suffers with the disease along with RA. At her request, she still lives…
