Thieves Essential Oil from Young Living

I made a trip down to Young Living’s office at Bugis Junction Towers today during lunch to get Thieves Essential Oil, which is an oil blend that’s effective in supporting the immune system.

This 15ml bottle cost me $54. It better work.

When I reached the office, I was rather surprised. I was expecting a quiet office where I just walk in and quickly get a bottle. But when the lift door opened, I was greeted by many other customers at a showroom and there were people actually serving queue numbers =_=

And so I pressed a q number and was served almost immediately.  But alas, the guy who served me directed me to another lady coz i wasn’t a member of Young Living.

Turned out that if I buy without being a member, I pay $71 instead of $54 for the Thieves Oil. And to become a member I have to buy about $150 worth of products.

After understanding the situation I told the lady to buy for me instead. I JUST WANT THE THIEVES OIL.

Well if this Thieves oil really work miracles, it isn’t too late to become a member isn’t it 🙂

Will update u on this!!

June 2014 in Singapore

Just one word – UNBEARABLE.

Yes the weather is unbearable. In fact it has been unbearable since a few months ago!! My utility bills for the past few months have broken the record of reaching the $400 mark coz we have been turning on the air con so frequently. The kids just cannot tahan the humid stuffy weather 😦

And I’ve been slapping on my Odbo sunblock at home coz i can feel the harmful UV rays burning right through my walls and into my skin. Argh.

And the weather has brought quite a bit of inconvenience and trouble to my girls too. After having recovered from a bout of bacteria infections, now my elder girl is hit by a viral one that’s causing us lots of distress coz viral fevers tend to stay on for more days (doc says 5 to 7 days omt) and can’t be tackled by antibiotics.  And she’s someone who hates taking medicine so that adds on to the stress too.

I’ve just given her some manuka honey.. see if it works on her. Read that manuka honey helps in tackling viral infections. Will update u!

Here’s the one I got. Wedderspoon Manuka Honey 16+ 🙂

And so my hands are dry and rough from the incessant washing of hands with anti bacterial soap coz there are two kids in the house. Shrugs.

Somehow I feel that I’m changing a bit day by day, by these experiences. I will usually complain and blame everyone else for what I’m going through. Now I’m starting to accept them as they come, and make use of every moment (be it pleasant or unpleasant) to show love to the ones I love. The clock ticks by unrelentingly,  so I shouldn’t be spending the time being so inward!

Thank God for making me see. Thank God for leading and guiding 🙂 just being myself, just being where I am, just being who I am with, is the most precious thing I will ever own.

Chong Qing Grilled Fish + 糖水先 (Food Review)

It has been a tumultuous 2 weeks my friends. My girls took turns to fall sick and I’m right now resting at home due to stomach flu. The heartless scorching weather is making everything a few notches worse too!

and hence the delay in this dinner post. I met up with Yanxi and HM for dinner last  Thursday. We actually waited a quarter for this. Last time we went out was just before I quit the job and last Thursday was about 3 months later.

Both girls looked gorgeous as usual (yes I’m the oldest one among the three) and we just couldn’t wait to start tucking in. We ordered a medium fish in 一品香辣, 微辣 level, plus 3 small dishes and 2 bottles of their beer on promotion.

image

2 bottles for $10. Tasted quite mild (or should I say diluted) but we aren’t expert drinkers so we were okay with it. The staff also gave us a bucket of ice to make sure the beer was cold through out.

image

One of the small dishes, pigs ears and chicken claws. I was expecting the claws to be deboned lor…Zzz.. and don’t think they look very harmless, they are damn spicy can.

image

Deep fried 金针菇! Addictive crunchy dish!

image

Err this was some bean curd skin cucumber mix. Didn’t eat this coz i don’t eat bean curd skin on paleo diet 🙂

image

The fish came looking grand as usual. I was telling the girls that when I had this with hubby recently in the same spicy level,  the spiciness was very manageable and I could actually drink the soup.

But but but this time round, it was a lot more spicy leh! Sigh. Different chef? Or was it because last time I had a non alcoholic drink and it helped better in taking away the spiciness in the mouth?

image

Shrugs. Other than the spiciness level, the fish was tender and everything was okay. The restaurant was really quite full that evening despite it being a Thursday. If I hadn’t gotten there early at about 610pm to chope a table, we would have to wait.

After the dinner we decided to head to desserts – so many to choose from along the street!

Decided to settle in at 糖水先 coz it looked more crowded.

image

This had to be the best durian dessert I’ve ever tasted. I think the ice was durian shaved ice, there was durian paste at the top and durian ice cream at the side. Freaking durian all over. They added condensed milk to sweeten the whole deal too. It was one awesome dish.

image

And our Nutella Banana Waffle arrived! I don’t eat waffles like those cafe hoppers do so I’m no expert. But i liked these 🙂 love how they spread the Nutella so evenly and fairly ahaha. Think only a perfectionist like me will say that ahaha.

image

Totally didn’t regret indulging in this. Haha.

image

And we ordered these yolk custard buns.

image

As you can see, the yolk custard DID NOT FLOW OUT AT ALL.

image

But somehow these desserts ended off the evening damn well. Ahh the joy of desserts. I can never resist them.

image

The two lovely girls. The blue heart like majiam hair clip on HM hair. Haha.

Next venue for the quarterly meeting – Yoogane, the very famous Korean eatery that recently stormed into Singapore!
