[Review] Philips Mite Cleaner FC6232/02


So the kiddo has allergy rhinitis, which apparently is rather common in Singapore, affecting up to 50 per cent of children aged 4 to 17 years. And the most common trigger for allergic rhinitis is exposure to house dust mites, followed by cigarette smoke. There are a couple of ways to get rid of house dust mites. You could call in the professionals for cleaning or buy a vacuum cleaner that is suitable for mattress cleaning.

It was saturday night when I decided to get a dust mite cleaner and I wanted to get one to start cleaning by sunday. So my first stop was Qoo10, I remember seeing a number of models selling online but after some thoughts, I decided to get it from a store because I could not wait for delivery.

When The Boy Falls Sick…


All it takes is just one sick child to throw a wench into your plans. I didn’t intend to take leave today but I had to because the boy fell sick again. He has been having the dreaded flu and cough on and off. And after trying western medicine for the longest time, we decided to switch to TCM aka Traditional Chinese Medicine.


So he was getting better till things took a turn for the worst and here I am, back at the TCM doctors again. Just mere 3 days after our last visit for treatment. But the thing with cough is that it is such a common occurrence especially with little children. The same goes for adults, on the public transport, you can hear and see people coughing away. Even in my office, there are a few who are also afflicted with the dreaded cough. So one of the ways to deal with this is not to make it such a big deal, face it, kids fall sick all the time.

[Review] Nano Biogenie & Metabolites Children’s Supplement from Japan!



It has been 3 months since I started working after staying home for 2 years. I had made the decision to return work once I found that Asher was adapting well in childcare. I thought it was great that he got to embark on a learning journey with other children his age and gain independence. However, something that bothered me was how he was constantly catching the flu and cough bug once he started school. After chatting with my fellow mummy friends, I realized that this was a common problem among children once they went to school, regardless of whether it was full day childcare or a two-hour playgroup. Due to their immature immune systems, little ones were more susceptible to falling ill when exposed to dreadful viruses.

What I’ve Been Up To (Toddler Activities & Some Updates)

Firstly, I fell sick then Asher caught the flu bug from me. Since then, we were like sick little bobos for the past 2 weeks. Then just last weekend, we had the car to ourselves, so naturally we have been out almost everyday. So I have been busy busy busy and have not been blogging as often as I wanted to.


Here’s what I managed to do with Asher. I’m glad to finally announce that we have established a bedtime routine! I know, it is one of the fundamentals that should have been set up months ago but parenting is a journey of lifelong learning. So we are into our first week and hopefully, we will not break out of it.


We bring in a couple of books, some of them handpicked by the big boy himself. We indulge in some reading after he finishes his milk. It is a calming activity that helps him to relax and get ready for bed.


I’ve also DIYed a light box for him with materials from IKEA. However, I am still not totally satisfied with it. I think my box is too shallow and small but this would make do for the moment.

I was also at a launch event for Creme Simon, check out my blog post on it. And I just had a food tasting at Sakae Sushi this week. Yes, I tried all of the yummy stuff above… Now, this is just a teaser, so wait for my blog review, ok?

Guess that pretty much sums up what I’ve been up to of late. Oh and August, please be good to me.
