0 The Annual Dinner Details are Announced ! And I Got Some Eye Candy

So, when i finished my first class yesterday, one of my fellow colleagues announced in the office that the teachers and staffs annual dinner will be on November 3, 2012 in Novotel Hotel at 1 Borneo Hypermall. She did mention that we are allowed to bring partners and family with us. Yeay, how nice!

Andd....of course the first thing that concerns me when such events comes up is the theme! 

Duhh, purple and pink. What's that supposed to mean? Means we can wear whatever we feel like comfortable in and bring it on that night long as it is in pink and purple. If one wears blue, it will still suits the theme as long as she might have pink hairband going on. Haha...i am not gonna bluff more on that theme. Because there are just so many things that one can rock on to a dinner party with these colors by the way. And , man... purple and pink has been my latest obsession...aww. They do the theme for me. Especially for me.. Well, i think i am the only person who think that way. How narcissistic that can be?

So,i have been thinking ... Should i asked my beloved talented mom to tailor the dress for me? Or should i just go any shops that sells amazing dress for this event? 

This is the dress that mom tailored for me on school annual dinner in 2010, back when i was still in FELDA Sahabat, Lahad Datu. Looks pretty amazing right? I am sorry the photo took in toggle whatever and you can't even see the whole picture of the dress.

Me, the one with peace out fingers. The one who gave that half smile, is my good friend, Alexia!
Will my mom have the time to make it for me? I owed a mountain lots (is this words even exist?) for she took very good care of my son back home. I know she is very tired taking care of my son who has been having diarrhea for a week and 3 days now. So sad by the way, that i can't be with them now. 

What i am gonna do is just waiting for the right time to ask mom. Finger crossed.. ;p

For some eye candy....enjoy the following photos!

Errr....I don't even know what to say. I'm gonna passed. Too decent.

Avant-garde, i must say. I don't think i can't finished the course meal right til the desserts served , or else i will feel as if i violated the dress its own. Too glittery on the front , you might caused your opposite table mates mistakenly took vinegar for some sugar for their tea.
This is sexaayy... something you would prefer wearing to get down and dirty dancing at nearest pub to where the dinner party held. Haha...then you wouldn't miss out on anything. Because you don't waste time to change from the dinner to go dancing in the club. Peace out!!

Okay, enough for tonight. I am so gonna head to the kitchen to check on my napa cabbage bathing on salt water. Shh...i am making kimchi for the first time. Wish me luck :)

Thank you for stopping by!

0 What to do when your child has diarrhea

These week has been the hardest for me as a new mom. I could say that because my family and i are dealing with my son's diarrhea since the first day after we celebrated his first birthday. 

I had been noted the harms that can cause to the children's health from my readings on the net and parenting magazine. It comes to my deepest concerns when it comes to my son's having diarrhea, i think any parents would do. Breaks my heart seeing my son looked helplessly weak and lied on his back for almost a day and becoming more clingy than usual. Especially when it comes to diarrhea that is not caused by teething. Of course this is not his first time having diarrhea , but it was never like this. Usually when it caused by teething , the disease lasted only a couple days , followed by the loss of appetites. 

But , this time the symptoms are, watery stool, low grade fever, stomach upset, vomiting, dehydrations and loss of appetites. Comes today, he has been fighting this diarrhea thing for a week and there's seem like it was not going to get better any soon. And on day 3 , he looked smaller and feel lighter, less urinating and was very weak for he had been dehydrated. We had brought him to two private clinics and once to the government hospitals but it seems like none of the medicines works for him. 

So, i search online and many got so many results back. Of course , there are many reasons that can caused bad diarrhea in children ...

..but, the truest and mostly matched with my son's symptoms above  told that my son might be having diarrhea caused by rotavirus. This kind of diarrhea has no cures but , to keep him hydrated with salts and sugar solution (the ORS packs). However, good news about this diseases is that , the infected child while fighting this diseases will also increase his own immunity against the virus so, it will be less likely for him to get infected again. 

Of course , keeping the child hydrated, and hygienic could be the hardest and tiring task when your child pooed for 4-10 times a day. And everytime you have to wipe and clean his butt off, he will likely be grumpy and giving tantrums since he will have bad rashes going on on the butt. This rashes are mainly caused by the bacterias from the stool besides the watery state that the stool possessed during these time. If the diapers are not changed regularly right after he poops, the diseases might get worse or make the healing process longer. 

To make your child drinking the salts solutions could be the hardest tasks since i am pretty sure that no babies, nor toddlers would drink it up like they were having a bottle of milk. The key is to gradually make your child get used to the taste. Start with one or tablespoon every 15 minutes, then gradually increase it to two ounces every hour once you see that the child becomes less rejecting when they are given the liquid. It is important for the parents to remember that the child might vomit liquid when they are drinking too much at a time. So, make the child drink from a spoon to avoid vomiting.

Adults who is attending children with this kind of diarrhea must always keep your hands and clothes hygiene after cleaning your child's poops. It was best with if you are equipped with the antibacterial hand gel , one that required no washings. 

Why adults should take this precautions? Rotavirus is common in children under five years old but adults too could get infected when he or she has children infected. This is because, the virus is resting in the poops and the virus can be distributed and infects through oral and respiratory. Though the symptoms might not be as severe as your child has but, it could send you resting on bed for at least couple of days too. Two days after i was back home for the weekend, i was infected which as i typing this now. And this of course not the best time i had in this very weekend. 

As i recalled, since i was back home, my shirts had been poops twice and wiping my son's butt off for more than dozens times with wet tissues and direct flows of water in the sinks so, it does not surprised me at all now that i had similar diarrhea  too. Vomiting, fever, stomach upsets and pooping watery stools. Not fun, but i gotta be strong for my son to weather this trouble. All i ever hoped for now is that i will strong tomorrow to look after my son and pray that he will be healed soon.
