i also dunno wat happened la. the cold juz came one day n refused to go away. took western med liao but still no use. so gotta go see chinese doc lor. i also not sure wat can the chinese doc do... but most likely acupuncture. coz the last time i got a blocked nose, she used acupuncture on me... then got these 2 needles sticking out fr either sides of my nose... haha...

but dunno wat she'll do this time. coz this time round, my nose keeps running non-stop... machiam like a spoilt tap... flow n flow n flow...

i'm home! hehe. time off.

hey babes, got a question: can give suggestion on what veg to cook? cos i'm very sian of kailan and cabbage and lettuce with oyster sauce... btw what is heng cai called in english? and if cook with ikan bilis is it just fry?

sch, they CAN hor cos my colleague was there and he saw it with his own eyes. and not just internet, even what you're typing in your word doc, what programmes you have open, they can see everything in the server room. he came over to me to tell me what i was doing on my comp!

they don't do it la (check what you're doing) but can if the need calls for it. just the thought is scary enough

wah levynn you very brave, go for acu. i dun dare!

i just came back from an event.. so tiring, was at mt faber.. sian tat i gota come back to ofc. was initially planning to go home after tat but coz boss around, so bo bian. sighzz.. saw the winners of project super star whom i never knew b4 today.. ahaha.. young little kids, feel so old.

lev, think coz weather is recently v weird tat's y sick bah.. flu takes very long to heal one.

skylar, i never ask u to go n bash ppl up hor.. i only jio u to swim n if someone irritates u, u can bash her up, no issue with me! hahah..

everyone pls pray hard for me tat tmr early morning raining n lots of thunder.. wahahah..

lina, water retention usually means u got too much salt in your body. try winter melon.. suppose to be very good to remove water retention.

pink, how about tau gey with salted fish? sambal kangkong? sambal sweet potato leaves? heng cai is fry with ikan bilis, very nice. but damn ma fan to pluck so i dun like to cook tat.

yo babes... back fr the sinseh.

skylar... not far fr our place la. u know the paya lebar methodist church? juz opposite only... underneath those blocks of flats.

anyway, today no acupuncture... got pple Q-ing up. usually if juz see the doc, less than $20. if acupuncture, must depend on which part n which type of needles used. got those very short ones to very long ones. but for the 2 times i did it, abt $20 plus only. coz it's priced according to the needles.

pink... actually i also dun dare at 1st... but my mum physcho me lor... coz that time da yi ma very very very long never come. n then the sinseh showed me those places to poke is those fleshy parts, then ok la.

my mum then steady ah... that time her little toe got caught by the swinging door, then swollen... she went for acupuncture for that leh. even she said very pain until tears came to her eyes, coz the little toe there not much fats...

thanks ah. keep telling me you like heng cai *which i already know by the way*, but i asked what it's called in english hor, sky! keke

i still don't understand why heng cai must pluck btw...

how levynn pain or not? i scared leh. i also da yi ma long time no come. missed 2 liao leh. and pregnancy test is negative. if don't come soon, i think i go for this la. did it work?

wah your ah bu so brave....

lina, you must drink more water. it sounds ironic but it's true - your body retain the water cos it needs it to keep cool but if you don't drink enough, it will just keep retaining. liao gai bo?

now i got face mask on then cannot wear my bak gia so typing with my face very close to the screen haha

wah, levynn's post on the LONG & SHORT needles is so informative, nvr noe the charges r based on the length of the needles, si bo huh? so now levynn, dun tell me u hv 2 boil the med? tt is so not a fun thing 2 do 4 the weekend

kamsia skylar, ant & ah pink 4 ur advice on getting rid of water retention =)

eh, v shiok 2 c the thread so active leh

4 preg tests i think more than enuf kwah, even if one is spoilt, the rest shld b accurate mah. 2 dish 1 soup meal well-balanced mah, got meat, veg & soup. sch mentioned those one dish meals, v time consuming 2 prepare, unless use those pre-prepared pack, just add water boil boil can liao, hehe

gg off now, bye babes!

ok, start another new post abt the acupuncture.

if u wan to go for acupuncture, better to call n make appt 1st. she can multi-task... no problem. coz she got 3 examination rooms. but it's still better to call 1st, coz usually my acupuncture session takes abt 30 mins.

pink... for my da yi ma, that time she acupuncture for me liao, then i still waited like 1 wk b4 it finally came.

lina... for her med... dun need to boil one. at least for me so far. all in the bottle kind.

but hor, the med she gave me on fri really powerful leh. i was telling u all my nose was "leaking" like nobody's biz?? then i went to see her, took her med once, twice, then no more "leakage"... haha... that's y sometimes i prefer chinese sinseh than western med... but their MC not recognised leh...

Good morning babes!!

Sch..
heng cai is totally diff from kang kong ya!! heng cai is more job leh like to peel off the skin/veins of the vegg lor.. but after cooking, heng cai is definitely better than kang kong coz alot more softer ya.. kangkong is more of the crunchy kind but not heng cai ok? got it?

Levynn,
okok.. another post abt acupuncture ah, if say got flu then bodyache etc can go for acupuncture bor ah? wahh.. sounds like ur that shi fu really not bad ah.. okok.. can try ya.. must call to make appt first ah? if quote ur name got discount bor ah? whahaha...

Sch,
heng cai is hokkien lah.. u got market u tell them heng cai, all will know one lah.. think u tell them english name they also dunno ah.. whahah.. like no english name leh..
 

levynn

skylar... if like your case, i think better ask the sinseh can acupuncture or not. ok... i tell the sinseh, if got pple go quote my name, ask her to poke u wif 2 extra free needles... hahahaha....

Skylar, if I am not wrong, heng cai is call round spinach in english. If you go NTUC, you will find 2 kind of spinach...one is call phay leng and one is heng cai. So the one that says round spinach should be heng cai.
 

pinkbunny

New Member
yoohoo. heng cai i think it's pronounced like this: heng3 cai3. like di san shen in mandrain 'ying', but it's hokkien words. liao gai bo?

i asked the lady at shop and save if got heng cai and she gave me a packet, and it said spinach bayam. if that helps? or just ask for heng cai la! hehe.

sch, i dunno why the fu yong dan so much gravy leh. i think the recipe was from some ang moh website then they got diff idea of fu yong dan maybe? hehe. but anyway the gravy was nice. and the curry was shiok! premix??? oi don't see me no up leh. wa si ding ding da ming eh recipe mama hor!!!
angry.gif
it was from a simply her recipe long long time ago. next time then i post.

so far, i still very kuai hor, at work cannot access, at night still come and report hor?

no la... not UV light. it's actually also not really a light... it's like kind of sth that will heat up n then will warm up the part of your body which it is pointed at. if too hot n cannot take it, can tell the sinseh mah... if chao tar, how?? haha...

skylar, i juz called SQ to check. so dumb their booking system, u can only print out the boarding pass online immed after doing the internet check-in. once out of the page, cannot liao

the other way the lady advised me is to log in using the Kris Flyer no., cancel the 1st internet check-in, do a re-check in (but no guarantee u'll get back the seat wor), then print out the boarding pass. wah biang, cannot find a system more dumb liao lor, nabz

think it's my xin li zuo yong, like can still feel slight tremors liddat, aiyoh
