Ankylosing Spondylitis

Ankylosing Spondylitis - pronounced ank-kih-low-sing spon-dill-eye-tiss. Pronouncing it is already hard enough. Imagine a whole lifetime with Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS). There is only meds to slow down the effect and hopefully diagnosis in the early stages. And too often diagnosis is a little too late.

Sensodyne - Pledge No to Sensitivity

I took a pledge last week. Saying no to sensitive teeth with Sensodyne. Saying yes to the freedom of being able to eat cold or sour food without having to go through some painful shudders or sharp pain.

Banana Bread - Mad Scientist Style

Banana bread? Banana cake? To be honest I think there is probably a fine line between them two but I can't figure it out despite reading up a little too much for my own good. However, say what one likes or want, the aroma of banana bread / cake baking in the kitchen evokes a happy feel and tummy rumbles. And if you baked with the kitchen windows open and front door open like I did, then be prepared to offer them some if you happened to catch them looking at your direction. In my case, I didn't dare offer until I took a bite and was sure that my mad scientist version based on feel and whatever memory turned out good.

Heroes at Heart

Today I met a few of our local heroes. Our local boys who showed us that determination and hard work brings us places. Heroes At Heart by Pavilion KL celebrates the achievements of Malaysians Qobin Mokhtarrudim, Shahrom Abdullah and Muhammad Irwan Yusoff Abdullah for their recent accomplishments in completing the 111-kilometre skiing expedition to the North Pole with the Malaysian Seven Continents Exploration Club (KE7B).

It’s car shopping season again. We are looking for a new daily ride (not to replace our wedding car though) to ferry the little troopers to and fro school and run everyday errands. Although I’m not looking for anything fancy, I still get a headache when I think of having to peruse car reviews and brochures, visiting car dealerships, making a budget blah blah blah. The last time we purchased a car, it took us more than 2 months before shortlisting a few rides for viewing.
