Aina, hubby, me and even our maid was not spared.... :-s
Mine started on Saturday, after we got back from Seremban. But, even though I was already feeling sore and kind of woozy, still went ahead to catch the movie date with hubby.

I still tried to make it to work on Monday but left around 8.40am to go to the panel clinic @ TTDI since I had to drop by to pick up something from Mom's anyway. Turned out, temperature was 38.5'C and throat was already inflamed. Doc gave the required meds and I soon made my way home. Poor Aina. She was so happy to see me home but she was baffled as to why I was not really into playing with her. So, I took her hands and put them to my forehead so she could feel my fever, and I told her, "Mama pain.....". So she agreed to go play with Ana and let me sleep for a bit....
Tuesday I was still not well so I had to go to the panel clinic near our house to get another MC for Tuesday. If I had gone to SJMC on Monday, I would have gotten 2 days off immediately. Good thing too that I had the extra day because by lunch time, Aina had developed a fever. I gave her the meds we already had at home, but it didn't seem to work. At 5.20pm hubby and I were in SJMC waiting our turn to see the doc. Turned out, Aina had a fever of 38.3'C and so she was immediately given supp meds (i.e. inserted from her bottom). She asked for a burger on the way home, and impressed us by finishing it :-D
That night though, her temp was still high and around 1.00am I stripped her and gave her a sponge bath. She cried, protested, but I didn't really have a choice as she was HOT! I gave her another round of supp med, then put her back to bed. By Wednesday morning, she was still just slightly warm to the touch so I told Ana to call me at work if her temperature goes sky-high again. Alhamdulillah....... Aina has been fine the last 2 days, just slightly warm in the evening so I just stick to her paracetamol.
Anyway, we are all feeling better now and hope that the weekend will bring us something more fruitful than just laying in bed, pumped with meds!!! LOL
Happy weekend, and to those who are celebrating, "Merry Christmas!!"
As we entered the Centre, Aina was immediately awed by the 'fish tank' around her.
But as soon as we stepped into the dino area, Aina's awe turned to fear a bit. She was hesitant to take a step and had to be persuaded....
Aina was with TokMi as Aunty Cicik was throwing a birthday party and wanted Aina to be there.
BEEF & VEGETABLES NOODLE SOUP
3 - 4 'pieces' of mee suah, rinsed briefly
200g beef slices
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1-inch piece ginger, sliced
1 Tbs oyster sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
1 1/2 tsp vegetable oil
veggies of your choice - i used frozen corn and peas
heat both oils in a pot and fry the garlic and ginger. add in the beef
slices and brown well. add in the oyster sauce and water and bring up to boil.
if using carrots, then add in now. as i was using frozen corn and peas, i only
added them just before i added in the noodles.
once the broth has boiled, check seasoning and add in the veggies and
noodles, and simmer briefly until noodles are done. the noodles i used i.e. mee
suah tend to get mushy really fast so i only cooked them for about 2 minutes,
then quickly served.
Aina was making a fuss about going to TokMi's (something she's started to do every weekend now) and since Babah had to work so he said he'll send us and come pick us up after his stint at PWTC.
It was off to The Curve with Mama, TokMi and TokYah...... :-)
After the photo stop in front of e@Curve, we headed to Tao located inside e@Curve for our late breakfast of coffee (iced chocolate for Mama & Aina) and croissants. The patio was a nice place to have coffee (or even iced chocolate ;-P) but not very child friendly as the seats were high, set with high tables. Yes, the place was a club/lounge in the evening, but I think alternative seating arrangements should be made available for the 'day crowd' which will obviously mean families bringing in kids. At the moment, they are having special promo on the coffee & croissants which claim to be the 'cheapest in town' for only RM5 per set. You can choose from latte, cappucino, etc. I am not a coffee person, so I stuck to my iced chocolate which was a wonderful not-so-sweet concoction with a nice dollop of vanilla ice-cream on top :-D
Aina has fascination with all things Christmas I think, and she loves to touch the sparkly decoration and ornaments (which kid doesn't right??)
I have just one comment about Sakae Sushi - the servers should make it a point to check if the customer is familiar with their way of ordering i.e. vie the individual computers set up at the tables. Good thing I'd been to one of their outlets, or else we'd be so upset that no one came by to take our orders, LOL LOL LOL
And.... while Mama was Facebooking while watching TV and TokMi took a short nap,
Needless to say we had a huge shock, not to mention a very comical moment when Aina proudly told TokMi to wake up to see her 'surprise' for TokMi! LOL LOL LOL
