Our New Best Friends

No...No.. I haven't pop yet. 13 days to go! But I have finished all the projects on my hand. So can go deliver worry-free. And Big C is 99.9% recovered (that's what he said, maybe learn from advertisements?). And Jayden is 100% a-okay but I just received news from school that they are CLOSING the school AGAIN for a week, this time due to HFMD. Luckily I can work from home now, otherwise I'll be so damn stressed thinking how on earth am I going to take leave again to take care of him.

So who's our new best friends?
These guys!

After Jayden got HFMD and then Big C got it later, I went and bought Dettol Disinfectant and sprayed the room, the door knob, the bed, the pillow, the toys and whatever I can see in my room.

For Big C, he bath with Savlon/Dettol.

For J, I wipe his hands many times and also use liquid sanitizers when we go out.

Crazy? Paranoid? Anything to keep them healthy! I cannot afford to have virus/germs in my house to welcome no.2's arrival!

Apparently HFMD is spreading now, so you guys better take care and drink more coconut juice. We've been buying coconut juice so often, Jayden can say "Buy CoCoYat....C,O,N...C,O,N...CoCoYat..CoCoYat.."

  4. Sasha,
    I am more than glad when you mentioned that both Big C and Lil J are fine now. Now you can have one less problem to worry liao. :)

  5. Glad to hear u're all ready to go pop! Huh? Jayden's schl is closed again? That plc is really easily infested with virus/germs.
    Ei? Coconut water can promote weight loss? I rmbr one TVB show abt Fei Tin where she made her bf (Andy Hui) drink a lot of coconut water to make him fat.

  6. Hooooo! Sorry ya, long time didn't visit your blog. No mood to bloghop lately. Less than 2, excited for you! Eh, are you gonna have ur body urut after birth?

  7. No mother can be too paranoid when it comes to a child's health. Kekekek.. I'm one of them too :P

    Thanks for sharing on the coconut.. mmm.. where can I buy coconut here. :(

  8. geez! thanks for sharing this with us! must go buy cocoyat now! and i'm loading up on the hand sanitizers and disinfectants too. takut woh..

  9. Wow, I din know coconut is so good, even if I drink a lot of coconut juice here.

  10. Seriously, when Raelynne had gastroenteritis again few days ago, those items are my best friends as well. Dettol hand soap, dettol liquid, then dettol hand sanitizer is one of the best item we have... it sanitized hand immediately on the spot.. its a clear lotion.

    dettol disinfectant spray also bagus! we sprayed the whole room so that little boy doesnt get infected hehehe

  11. I didn't know that there was such a thing as dettol spray.... Anyway... It's good to be extra cautious... I bring dettol wipes out when we go out...

  12. same thing happen to me when i was about to deliver the scared and every day pray that the twins will delay coming out until their sister recovered/ nanny (who has to help us take care QQ during my hospital stay) to come back from Thailand.

  13. coconut really work? i just know that drink coconut whenever u have sore throat...sigh

  14. ahhh.... coconut. I love it even when I dont need it to cool down! So nice!

    Dettol is always my best friends after Naomi got infected HFMD last time.

  15. i love coconut water :) maybe i should start thinking abt using Dettol in our house. hmmm...

  16. School closing down due to HFMD? Aiyo, so scary! My girl just recovered from terrible cough and flu, should I stop sending her to school ah? :(

  17. mama bok1:21 PM

    Poor you ..!! gotta deal with this.. so late into your pregnancy :( you take care..!

  18. Good to hear that both your big and small darling are now healthy and strong to welcome the little one.
    Eh, got some theory say that expecting or rather, almost due mothers always like to clean clean the house, a sign that labor is just around the corner. True maybe, I guess.

    the malays (or at least some of us) believe that drinking coconut prior to giving birth (like u, waiting for EDD kan?) will actually help promote a smoother delivery.

    so stock up on the coconut juice, hot mama ;)

  20. ooO!! i like coconut juice!! good!!! =D

    make sure those 2 boys in ur house is really really clean!! hehehe

  21. Wow! That reminds me of my 2 lil ones 2 years ago... Sama-sama check in hospital with both of them...phew!
