Chickenpox At Our Church

Two weeks ago, seven person from the church I attend were attacked by Varicella Zoster – chickenpox virus. It attacked all kind of age, from toddlers till the old one.

Chickenpox is contagious, meaning that someone who has it can easily spread it to someone else. Someone who has chickenpox is most contagious after 2-3weeks since he or she got it, when the scabs are about to fall off.

A person who has chickenpox can pass it to someone else by coughing or sneezing. When he or she coughs, sneezes, laughs, and even talks, tiny drops come out of the mouth and nose. These drops are full of the chickenpox virus.Before you know it, the chickenpox virus has infected someone new.
The good news is that chickenpox is a common illness for kids and most people get better by just resting like you do with a cold or the flu. And the really good news is that, thanks to the chickenpox vaccine, lots of kids don't get chickenpox at all.

Usually the vaccine is given at age 1. But you can get it when you're older too. Kids, who do get it, if they got the shot, often get less severe cases, which means they get better quicker.

Fidel just had the CP vaccine last Wednesday as he is one year-old now and going to face CP virus at anytime and anyplace.

Fidel's First Birthday

First of all, we want to give thanks our precious Lord Jesus for his guidance, protection and wisdom that we could have strength to raise Fidel. Time flies… From his first day arrived in this world, only know how to cry, drink milk and sleep until his first year, he learns a lot of things. Those are blessings to us. He brings laughter and joy to our family.

Last Saturday, we had a cell group gathering to celebrate Fidel and Marion birthday, as their date are the same, but they different nine years.
On Sunday, Joseph’s elder sister made a simple party for Fidel and invited families and relatives. I would like to say many many thanks to all of them for all their love, time, and presents. Thanks to other friends for their wishes and presents too.

Here are the photos which were taken by my camera. I’ll upload more photos at the next post. So, stay tune…

Fail and Fail Again

I don’t know what make me crazy of baking cakes recently. One of the aunties from my church, willing to lend her oven to me as she seldom use it, in fact she used it once only. I’m like having a new oven.

I start to buy and collect the cakes ingredients. First time I used it to roast chicken as my cake ingredients have not completed yet. After few days later, here I come to do some “experiments”.

All the cake recipes I search from internet. The first cake I tried to make was basic cup cakes. The result was failed. It looks nice when baked time, but slowly it become darker, I think the temperature was too high and it shrinks badly after took it out from the oven. The second cake was brownies, I tried to make is 4times lesser than the original recipe. When the cake was baked, suddenly I shocked that I forgot one of the ingredients still in its original weight. Instead of 1/4tsp of baking powder, I put 1tsp, sigh… How careless I am. What happened next was after the cake getting cold, the centre went down very deeply. Hahaha…
The hardest cup cakes in my life
My mother and sister are good in making pastries, but I never want to try before. For me it’s not easy and need to be very detail in measuring the ingredients. That’s why I failed two times.

Anyhow I’m not surrender yet. I am sure I will success one day.

Interesting Singaporean Movie-The Little Nyonya

It has been one month I didn’t update my blog. I was busy with a lot of things, the kindergarten concert preparation, doing some accounting and especially this one – watch series movie from youtube.

I was addicted with this movie. I just couldn’t stop watching it before I know the whole story. You must wonder what movie that I watched. The title is “The Little Nyonya”, Singaporean Movie. They took a Malaysian Chinese culture, which is called Peranakan and make it into an interesting movie.

After watch this movie, I understand and appreciate the history behind the culture. After two weeks watched the movie, finally I can have a good sleep and ready to update my blog again. If you are interested with this movie, just click the video below this post. But don’t blame me if you have no enough sleep. *grin*….
