An Unlucky Day

After we were back from Singapore, CE developed some rashes around his neck. It was quite mild, his skin just a bit rough and it looked very dry. I thought it was because we were sleeping in an air-cond room the whole night (at home, we normally just switch it on for awhile at night). So I just apply his Balneum lotion as normal but it got worse. He started scratching on Saturday and yesterday, the rashes got really bad, especially the area under his chin.

So I brought him to see the paediatrician this morning. Doctor said it's mostly caused by allergy. Aiyo... now I cannot track back what caused the allergy coz he's taken quite a number of new food the past week. I wasn't so cautious this time in introducing new food to him (although he's quite prone to allergy. I'm just cautious about seafood - how careless of me). Let me see... he had chee cheong fun (with sweet sauce), biscuits (Tiger and Lexus) and wantan noodles. Hmmm... it could be chee cheong fun coz it has dried shrimps in it. I've separated them but maybe there were still traces of that seafood in it. I seriously hope it's not the biscuits coz he likes to eat biscuits now, as compared to bread. Doctor prescribed Hydrocort cream and oral medication for his allergy and itchiness.

Then when we left the clinic, a little accident happened. I was reversing my car from the parking lot and suddenly "Bang!" Sh*t!!! I swear I didn't see that car, don't know where he came from. I only saw a stationary car at a distance, waiting for parking. Upon seeing that it was a place with many people (mamak stall nearby) and nothing fishy, I got out of the car to inspect the damages (to both cars). Must be very careful these days with so many incidents of car hijack and robbery after a little accident. The other guy's car was scratched lightly (but it's obvious) at the front passenger door. He suggested that I pay him 100 bucks. Immediately I called hubby and let hubby speak to him. After a long chat (he kept asking hubby to ask me to pay him, don't want to waste time lah, scared we run away lah, bla bla bla). Then I checked my back bumper. It was scratched badly too. Only when I wanted to take some pictures at home that I saw the bumper has dislocated a little. Anyway, he agreed that he'll wait till hubby's back from work to settle with him. Now I'm very sad coz I've scratched my car again (yes, again) and we've to spend extra to pay for the other party's damages too. :( Thank god no one was hurt. That's my only consolation.

Mishaps aside...




Wishing all a Merry Christmas

We had a slight accident during Christmas eve too. But, nothing serious. Just get your car fix and forget about it, as there is nothing much can be done! hehe...

Regarding the allergy. It can be the "Har Kou -- black Shrimp source" in the Chee Cheong fun cause that's a very unhealthy food and unhygienic too. I get allergic to that once in a while too. Hope this help. :)

Enjoy Your New year! MAy your New year fill with joy, health and wealth! :)
