The Three Billy Goats Gruff

April 13, 2015, 0 Comments

Would the goats that eat almost anything now risk their lives for the sake of survival? When a severe drought threatened the very survival of the three billy goats, they began to look afar where the grass seemed to be greener. Armed with a plan, they made a decision to face the dreadful danger that lies beneath the bridge. Would they survive or would they not? This brilliantly written broadway style musical captivates hearts of the young and the young-at-heart with catchy tune that my boys would still sing days after the show. “The grass is always greener on the…

Birth Story

April 1, 2015, 0 Comments

Isn’t it lovely to have a birth story to look back at? I told myself I have to put this down no matter what. I remember every one of my children’s birth. They were as distinct as their personalities, and they were memorable. Pregnant four times, with two miscarriages and having gone through 4 seasons of morning sickness, I often wondered why I keep on trying. I don’t have much tolerance for physical discomfort, but I love babies. At about 2 months of gestation, my husband and I discovered that I was carrying a baby girl.  We were pleasantly surprised,…

Sofzsleep Mattress – We choose natural latex

We have been using spring mattress since our wedding day and after 9 years, the sag in the middle of the bed, was obvious. And despite flipping the mattress, I think it has reached its maximum lifespan. With my belly growing quickly in the recent months, I was beginning to experience backaches. A hunt for simple mattress turned out to be quite an experience for us. Like most things, we take for granted that what has worked for a long time would still work. Not so when it comes to mattresses, we found out later.  We chanced upon various types…

Prenatal treatment at Nouri : Scrub and Wrap

January 16, 2015, 0 Comments

  I went back to Nouri’s to finish off my prenatal treatment. This time I was highly recommended to do a “Scrub & Wrap” combo.  I actually can’t wait because each time I finished at Nouri’s, I feel refreshed. But many women ask, “Is it really safe to do a body scrub during pregnancy since our skin is more sensitive during this period of time?”  Valerie of Nouri Face and Body Concepts tells me that it is important to select a highly trained therapist who could recommend products that are safe for use, as well as to ensure that expectant…
