Pink Rose Bud Tea

As part of detox, has added pink rose bud tea into my diet.

Pink Rose Bud Tea is made from real rose buds, plucked when they are young and then dried. Lovely and highly enjoyable beverage. Pink Rose Bud Tea adds spark to women beauty, relieve menstrual pain (add a bit of red wine and brown sugar), ease stomach bloatedness.

Good for woman. The flowers, gathered in the bud and dried, are said to be more astringent than the Red Roses.

Nursery or no-nursery

Lately i have this question in mind: To send or not to send Elly to nursery when she reach 2 1/2 years old. Well, there are pro and con to it. Or shall i hire a full-time maid at home to look after the girls?

Or shall i 'let-go' of my career and stay-home to take care the girls? Always feel that the girls need the most attention especially during the toddler years. Research has proven that children with good family support during the toddler years are more stable emotionally.

Aside high IQ which is so in demand nowadays, high EQ and SQ(Social intelligence) are equal important. While the former is much easier to achieve, need to emphasize on how can achieve the latter while bringing up the girls.

4 Week Detox

Thanks to my sis-in-law for the Detox Book by Michelle Cook, i am now on a 4 week detox aiming at better health and to lose weight.

Now on my 3rd day of the detox, feeling great and less bloated. Bowel movement is better. Basic things to follow, all back to natural, and no starch and no meat and no dairy products during the 4 weeks.

One good thing is it allows for 'once in a while' treat of meat, and anything that i feel like eating. Need it though as will be attending a best friend wedding in early Nov. Other than that, will stick to this vege and fruits regimen.
