of being unwell, cranky and not in the mood, Ashley finally started to sing again this morning. She even talked non-stop on our way back from the paed. Yeah, took her to see the paed again because there is still a lot of phlegm in her throat and she was coughing a lot at night. Due to the high fever, huge ulcer on her lip, cough & cold, she had lost some weight 🙁 Oh well, I am really glad that she is well again. Can always fatten her up later 😉 I also kept Ashley away from school this whole week. She wanted to go to school this morning but since it’s Friday, I decided to let her rest one more day.
Ashley does not have a temperature today but guess what? She developed cough and runny nose instead. *sigh* Must be the weather these days. I have been giving her lots of Millenium juice these few days and my mom also boiled the “ling yeong sai kok” for her, 2 days in a row to bring down the body heat. Hubs has a slight fever and is coughing too. My throat is feeling scratchy too. Looks like everyone at home has been bitten by the sick bug 🙁 Sorry if I don’t visit your blog these few days. Got to take care of Ashley and also rest a bit.

This morning, we met up with this very nice mommy blogger and her family. I’m sure you all know her and her cute daughters 😉 She is none other than Vivien of Cheeks to Cheeks.

Vien and her family came back to Msia for a vacation. I have been wanting to meet Belle every since I started reading her mommy’s blog 2 years ago. Now, not only do I get to meet Belle, I also got to meet her little sis, cutie Cassie too. Both the girls are so adorable. We had brunch at the coffeeshop near my house which is also near Vien’s grandmother’s shop. Though Ashley still has a slight fever, I still brought her along to meet Vien because I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to meet up with them….hehehehehe. Ashley was very happy to meet the two “mei meis”. She kept touching Belle and followed her around. However, she showed her jealous streak later and didn’t want to let Belle take the gift bag which I gave her *rolls eyes*
Ashley and Belle sharing a chair after warming up to each other in the shop.
I only realised it after I downloaded all the photos that I did not take a photo together with Vien and the girls *slaps forehead* It was pretty stuffy and noisy at the coffeeshop, and we couldn’t wait to leave after finishing our food 🙂 It was great to finally meet Vien, Jon, Belle & Cassie. Hopefully, next time we’ll fly over to the US to meet them 😉
Ashley had high fever earlier this morning around 6am. Her temperature was 39.1 deg. Celscius. I put a suppository for her (after much struggling and crying). Poor baby. The fever went away shortly after. I brought her to the paed at 11.30am as that’s the time the clinic opens. She was fine and active all morning. Her paed said her throat is red. Gave me a bottle of fever meds, meds throat enzyme, cough and cold. She also gave me a bottle of antibiotic to stand by since it’s the long weekend. Ashley’s fever came back around 1pm and I fed her the oral meds. When I checked her temperature, it was 39.2. Just 30 mins ago at the doctor’s, her temp was 37.5. I got a shock and quickly sponged her. She didn’t nap for long either, kept tossing and turning in bed. *Sigh* Hope her fever will go away soon.
This is a backdated post. Just before the CNY, Ashley caught the cold bug. So she had to some medication for her runny nose. Once when I was feeding her the medication, she wouldn’t stand still. Hence, the meds spilled onto the floor. I was annoyed and told her sternly, “Ashley, stand still when I am feeding you the medication“. This was her reply – “If you say so” in a sassy manner O_O
During our recent trip back to Ipoh, I took the opportunity to meet up with some of my good friends. The meeting took place at one of my friend’s new house. She and her family just moved into her home a month ago. As soon as I reached her house, she gave me a tour. It was such a beautiful house and it comes with a swimming pool. There are 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 2 kitchens (a wet and a dry) as well as an entertainment room which come complete with a huge tv and home theater furniture. Simply awesome! The house was also tastefully decorated and adopt a minimalist look. Ashley was so mesmerised by the swimming pool that she wanted to jump into it. Well, I think the next time when we visit my friend, we will bring Ashley’s swimsuit along.
Since it is still CNY, we went “pai nin” earlier today. Do you recognise who this sweetie next to Ashley is? I always love to see her photos in her mommy’s blog. She is such an adorable baby. Can you tell who she is? Well, she is none other than Shireen‘s Baby Cassandra. The last time I saw Cassandra was when she was 3 months old. She has grown so much now. Ashley just adores her and kept touching her face *slaps forehead*. She can be rather rough sometimes so I have to keep reminding her to be gentle 🙂
Baby C and Ashley. It is so hard to get Ashley to look at the camera now.
Here is another shot of the both of them. See how tight Ashley is hugging her? *grins*
It was great to see Shireen and her girls at her new home. The 2 older girls didn’t want to take a pic together and I forgot to snap their photos later. Alycia kept serving me “play food” and “tea” when I was there. Guess she wants to fatten me up *chuckle*. Baby C will be going for a surgery later this month. Hop over to her mommy’s health blog to read up more about the poor baby.
We went to One Utama for some last minute shopping. What’s new eh? Hehehehehe. Guess who we bumped into 😀
Well, he is no other than cute Shan Leo. He was out shopping with his mommy, poh poh and his doting 2ma 😀 Oh, Shan Rae also came. I saw him first when his poh poh was carrying him and I walked over and introduced myself. Shan Rae is such a cutie pie! It was so nice to meet another fellow blogger and most of the time, I could recognize the children first 😀 Ashley got along well with Shan Leo and she kept asking about “baby” (Shan Rae) after we parted ways. Here are more photos taken by the boys’ mommy (I curi the photos from 2ma’s blog)
It was great to see all of you that day. Hope to meet up again soon 😀
Ashley is down with a cold since yesterday. Her nose is stuffy and she was sneezing. This morning I brought her to the paed and reached the clinic before it was opened. Very “kan cheong” because CNY is coming. Before she got the cold, Ashley had 2 huge ulcers on her upper lip and for the past few days, she was pretty cranky and refused to drink water. Had to bribe, coax, scold and etc 🙁 I applied the oralgel for her but didn’t seem to work. Ashley is pretty prone to getting ulcers despite drinking lots of water and eating one fruit a day. I checked with her paed and was told that it’s hard to determine why or how ulcers come about. She suggested that I start giving her some multi-vits. Ashley has not taken any multi-vits/ vitamin C before but takes 1 tablespoon of Millenium Juice (cactus juice) every day.
When we were at the clinic, Ashley kept asking where her doctor is. The clinic opened at 8.30am but the doc normally comes in around 8.40am. When she saw her doctor, she was so happy and eager to go into the room 🙂 Of course we couldn’t because there was another family before us. I was reading a pamphlet on cerebral palsy and she kept interrupting me every few seconds to ask me when is her turn to go in *slaps forehead* When her turn came, she was so happy and sat on the chair all by herself. I used to have to carry her and have her sit on my lap and hold her hands to keep her from fidgeting or crying 🙂 What a big change…..guess my baby is a big girl now. After going to the paed, she wanted to go to school and refused to go home. I wanted to keep her home so that she won’t spread the germs to her classmates but she cried. So have no choice but to let her go to school eventhough we were almost an hour late 🙂
