Ling fell sick and vomitted a few times at one night (even the pure drinking water) two weeks ago. She scares the most is coughing and vomitting. She could not sleep well. The next day, though it’s not so frequent already the vomitting, but she started to have diarrhea, slight fever. So I took her to see doctor.

According to the doctor, it’s caused by bacteria infection, something she eats in (hmm.. I recall seeing her biting her finger, may be that is the cause).


  • drink a lot of water / fluid, or give 100 plus (diluted one).
  • switch to PediaSure which does not have lactose
  • NO antibiotic.

Just  3 things to watch out:

  1. she is not dehydrated
  2. check the stool and make sure no blood
  3. the fever subside after 2 days

And the doctor also proposed to take Prolactor (probiotic with FOS, or what so call good bacteria) to help her recover sooner.

Ling is ok now.


This is an article I read in  from Parent Wonder, written by Stacy D. Phillips.

10 Ways to Save Your Marriage

1. Yours, Mine & Ours — As important as it is to build togetherness and intimacy based on mutual interests, it’s just as important to have an inner and outer life of your own. Respect your differences and it will make the relationship stronger.

2. Time to Be Together — Sure, you’re working, cleaning, car pooling, making the kids do their homework, etc. But how important are all those things if your marriage falls apart? Make time to spend together. Take regular vacations together. Spend leisure time doing things you both enjoy. Commit to a weekly date night and make it as unbreakable as the staff meeting at work.

3. Take Care of Yourself — Spend time every day on your appearance and your physical well being. Not only will your loved one like looking at you, but you’ll feel better about yourself.

4. Communication Goes Both Ways — Many relationships fail because of misunderstandings. Effective communication skills are necessary if your relationship is going to survive. Stay calm.

5. Criticize Gently — Don’t judge too harshly. If you criticize, do it as you would want others to criticize you. Be gentle.

6. The Children — Yes, a child changes the dynamics of a relationship, but he or she doesn’t need to destroy the sanctity of your marriage. Accept the fact that children will have problems and don’t be reluctant to get outside help if it’s needed.

7. Courting — Gifts, compliments, and a loving embrace go a long way, especially when they’re unexpected. Treat your spouse with the same courtesies you did when you were dating. Pretend you are trying to win your partner all over again.

8. Romance — Keep your romantic images alive even when facing the harsh realities of life. Resolve to do just one romantic gesture for your mate every single day.

9. The Terms of Endearment
— Spell out the basics of your relationship in a yearly contract, or at least clarify them. Most disputes that break up marriages are over sex and money. Don’t let surprises lead to trouble.

10. Renegotiating the Contract — Marriage is like any other contract — its terms and conditions must be reviewed and updated. Right before an anniversary is a perfect time.

Title: Young and pretty lady wishes to marry a rich guy. Fantastic reply from a financial person
A young and pretty lady posted this on a popular forum:
Title: What should I do to marry a rich guy?
I’m going to be honest of what I’m going to say here. I’m 25 this year. I’m very pretty, have style and good taste. I wish to marry a guy with $500k annual salary or above. You might say that I’m greedy, but an annual salary of $1M is considered only as middle class in New York . My requirement is not high. Is there anyone in this forum who has an income of $500k annual salary? Are you all married? I wanted to ask: what should I do to marry rich persons like you? Among those I’ve dated, the richest is $250k annual income, and it seems that this is my upper limit. If someone is going to move into high cost residential area on the west of New York City Garden ( ? ) , $250k annual income is not enough.
I’m here humbly to ask a few questions:
1)       Where do most rich bachelors hang out? (Please list down the n ame s and addresses of bars, restaurant, gym)
2)       Which age group should I target?
3)       Why most wives of the riches is only average-looking? I’ve met a few girls who doesn’t have looks and are not interesting, but they are able to marry rich guys
4)       How do you decide who can be your wife, and who can only be your girlfriend? (my target now is to get married)

Ms. Pretty

Here’s a reply from a Wall Street Financial guy:
Dear Ms. Pretty,
I have read your post with great interest. Guess there are lots of girls out there who have similar questions like yours. Please allow me to analyze your situation as a professional investor. My annual income is more than $500k, which meets your requirement, so I hope everyone believes that I’m not wasting time here.
>From the standpoint of a business person, it is a bad decision to marry you. The answer is very simple, so let me explain. Put the details aside, what you’re trying to do is an exchange of “beauty” and “money”: Person A provides beauty, and Person B pays for it, fair and square. However, there’s a deadly problem here, your beauty will fade, but my money will not be gone without any good reason. The fact is, my income might increase from year to year, but you can’t be prettier year after year. Hence from the viewpoint of economics, I am an appreciation asset, and you are a depreciation asset. It’s not just normal depreciation, but exponential depreciation. If that is your only asset, your value will be much worried 10 years later
By the terms we use in Wall Street, every trading has a position, dating with you is also a “trading position”. If the trade value dropped we will sell it and it is not a good idea to keep it for long term – same goes with the marriage that you wanted. It might be cruel to say this, but in order to make a wiser decision any assets with great depreciation value will be sold or “leased”. Anyone with over $500k annual income is not a fool; we would only date you, but will not marry you. I would advice that you forget looking for any clues to marry a rich guy. And by the way, you could make yourself to become a rich person with $500k annual income. This has better chance than finding a rich fool.
Hope this reply helps.

Watch a short documentary in TV showing the 垃圾焚化场 in Japan, where the building is like a muzeum, made use of a lot of glasses and allow the people there to pay a visit to see how the rubbish are processed/recycle. The place is so clean and well kept that they are able to rear fish in the lake beside the building. This is something we need to work on in Malaysia.

Sometime I’m fed up listening at those nonsense argument between the politician over silly topics. They should spend the time to address all these issues that are so dear to the living of the people here. 

Also, I bump into this website which is quite good:

孟子曰:”天將降大任於斯人也,必先苦其心志 勞其筋骨,餓其體肤,空乏其身,行拂乱其所為,所以動心忍性,增益其所不能”


The ‘energy ball’ exercise is the first thing to do when we start Shichida class. “For the ‘energy ball’ exercise, the child is asked to rub his/her hands together until they are warm (place on cheeks to test) and then form a large imaginary ball, harnessing the energy from the universe. This is followed by medium ball and then a tiny energy ball that the child swallows that will bring into his/her body good energy and chases bad energy out. This is reinforced by affirmations that the child is happy, relaxed and attentive. The above routine should take about 3 minutes. ” Extracted from Shichida Parent website, provided by Lai Yin
