Pneumococcal vaccine

Pneumococcal vaccine –

Emmett had his 1st shot of Pneumococcal vaccine last Sunday, it is a 10-in-1 vaccine, which cost about RM220.

He will have to come back for his second dose when he reach 2 years old.

His current weight is at 10.2kg.

Eugene had his one and only shot in July 2008, at that time he was already more than 2 years old, so he needs only 1 dose.

It cost RM280 and it was only an 8-in-1 vaccine.

The week before his jab, Eugene had a very bad fever with ulcers in his mouth. For 4 days, he couldn't take in any food or milk, he only takes chrysanthemum tea. I still remember how terrified we were.

That time his weight was at 9.9kg and 79cm tall.

FYI, there are 4 doses of Pneumococcal vaccine available in the market.

1st dose is to be given to child less than 7 months old.

2nd dose is for child age 7 months to 1 year old.

3rd dose is for child age 1 year to 2 years old.

and the 4th dose is for child 2 years and above.

Eugene's Progress Report (Nursery)

Eugene's Progress Report from his class teacher - Mdm Rita.

According to her, Eugene takes about 2-3 days to settle down in her class. He mixes and plays well with his peers. He follow classroom's rules with ease and he is able to express his needs. He needs to put more effort in recognising the alphabet, number and counting ability. He enjoys music lesson and playing with maracus is his favourite...

Mummy didn't know that Eugene likes music, at home he only enjoys tv and computer games.

PicaBot

I want a PicaBot!


PicaBot eVo2 price around RM1,388 - RM1,700.
PicaBot provides up to two-hours of cleaning and can automatically find its own way back to the self-charging Base to re-charged its battery.
It is short, only at 9cm tall, can go under beds, sofas to clean your floor.
It also has a small UV tube coated with photocatalytic Titanium Dioxide on the underside of the robot that helps to eliminate organic micro-organism like germs and dust mites on the floor.

Sound pretty good, right?
I'm seriously considering getting one.

Rumah Hijau Cafe (2010)

Rumah Hijau Cafe, Satok, Kuching


Teh Tarik Ais - RM2.20Ayam Penyet - RM7.00
Paling suka ayam penyet kat cafe ni,
sebab sambal nyer tak pedas,
dan rempah ayam pun banyak.
Tapi mesti ada special request,
sayur mesti ber-celur, kite tak suka ulam sayur mentah.
