After my PSLE, my results were deemed good enough to:
1) attend a SAP school to do both EL1 & CL1 ... for O levels
2) offer Japanese at O levels
Then, after my A levels ... I was sent on a training scholarship to Germany & after 3 years there, I can read, write & speak German ... including their local dialects.
Then, when I was separated with my ex-wife (between 02 & 05), I used my spare time to study Italian ... a most melodiously expressive language I was always intrigued with.
Last year, on the brink of my retirement ... I did & completed my part-time Masters in Translation (English-Chinese). Initially, thought I could do freelance work while spending time with my 2 young sons ... end up I realise that unless I relocate to China, I wun earn my worth simply becoz the local industries dont really have the kind of budget to put aside for good translation works.
Nothing ... just reminding BhpHir3, just like I reminded you previously ... that DILs who have so much disagreements with their own MILs should really be the perfect MILs in the future .Originally Posted by autumn82

He knows alot , maybe can be wonderman too
sigh my dear son having alot of mucus too since born until now , bring him to specialist pediatrician aso same .. not running nose but dont know y ?
jac, still up? how's your dear son? brought him to see doc? my mum found THE recipe book . lai lai, i give you the recipe. can cook after confinement if you feel uncomfortable about it
jac, do you have ru yi oil with you now? place dear son on the bed / cot, spread some on your palms evenly, put your hands near his nose and let dear son sniff in the oil.
jac dear: if still not well, maybe bring him to pediatrician. But can ask supervroom for advices. He is very knowledgeable!
oblong: horror look! you have not't zzz?!
At first glance, I thought I needed to go get joss-sticks & copper coins ...Originally Posted by elaine82
But assuming that you meant "curing Josh's running nose", the I have this to offer ... go get a bottle of Cherry Vicks (it's actually still Vicks, but a scaled-down dosage meant for use on the little ones) ... apply a thin layer of it on Josh's soles of the feet, then cover those feet up with thick socks.
Since Jac is still under confinement, I dare say Josh is still way too young & delicate for any direct application of medication to the chest or the nose.
By following my remedy, Josh should get better by tomorrow ... if not, then do go to the docs to confirm whether it's a sinus problem.
Elaine ... I think your little one has a sinus problem.
Pig stomach with soy beans soup (to boost milk supply)
1 pig stomach
30g abalone mushrooms
30g soy beans
5g ginger (can put more if you intend to take during confinement - my parents added substantial, 5-6 large and thick pieces in the soup)
5g fresh spring onions
5g shao jiu (I had this with DOM)
Rinse the ingredients and slice them.
Heat a pot of water, and boil the pig stomach in the water for about 5 mins to get rid of the smells and rinse it. Slice the pig stomach.
Fill half the double boiler with boiled water and put all the ingredients in.
Double boil in slow cooker for about 6 hours.
Before drinking the soup, add in about 2 tablespoons of DOM (can vary, depending on your preference).
nite nite everyone

That's all there is to it when processing the pig stomach?Originally Posted by oblong
I'm not sure if the ladies here can take the smell ... with this simple procedure.
I know my mother in law is real thorough at processing pig stomachs ... she first wash them like washing laundry in the olden days, before fliping it inside out & fry in the heated wok, before finally boiling in pepper water.
Anyways, dont know if it'd alter the taste too much ... but usually, we cook the pig stomach soup with a good few handful of ungrounded white pepper. The effect here is to get rid of the wind in the mummies' tummy, soon after delivering.
Finally~ he is on the way back home with prata
Chat with you peeps tomorrow. Sleep early and rest well.
Jac: take very very good care ya? Hugs.
Elaine: Sleep early dear!
Yes ... that's pretty much the game rules that I know of.Originally Posted by kiswinkle
