For some reason So Cal weather has been acting up…it has been HOT, HOT, HOT since Friday and it’s the end of September! I guess the heatwave hit us quite late this year.
So what’s with the title of the post?
Not much except I got to update my blog..again…haha..it has been pretty consistent recently. I guess after having my parents living with me for the past couple months, I’m slowly adjusting. It’s tough in the beginning but I learned to not to be too picky. Parents always have their own way of doing things, or sometimes they tend to be a bit a little “nosy” of what I’m doing. Or sometimes they might interrupt me while I’m in the middle of doing something.
But on the other hand, the good thing having parents here are having meals ready after hubby and I got home from work 😀
Anyway, just had a little talk with my dad about my brother’s condition and seems like he’s getting a little better with the fever. He’s been diagnosed with TB and although he’s been on the medication for about 2 months. One of my uncle who’s a pharmacist mentioned us to get a juice extractor. My brother is not veggie fan, can’t eat fruits too much at once and he doesn’t like raw veggies. So the solution? Juice up bunch of raw veggies mixed with fruits (kinda like green monster thing, but in this case he only drinks the juice extract, not eating the pulp). We got Hamilton Beach juicer last week at Target.
The juice taste GOOD! Very refreshing and not to mention you got lots of veggie and fruits servings at once! The only downside it took sometime to prepare. We have to soak the veggies and fruits in water bath with baking soda and salt (baking soda to remove the pesticides, salt to kill off the worms/larvae).
He started to drink this juice on Wednesday and based off from his temperature record, he’s getting a little better after drinking this. My uncle mentioned that this juice will help him build up his immune system so will help bring his fever down. Fever is caused by the body fighting off the infection and weak immune system. We’ll see how his progress for the next couple days. Fingers crossed.
Yesterday we had a trip to downtown LA to visit one of my colleague in the hospital. She just had a heart surgery and since she’ll be discharged on Monday, I decided to pay her a visit on Saturday.
Took us about 1 hour to get there cause of bad traffic by the rubberneckers watching the accident on the other side. I don’t usually slow down and look at the accidents as they all always look bad – nothing new. Dunno why some people just HAVE TO LOOK at the accident and slowing down the traffic…GRR.
One thing I like from this place is the Hongkong style waffle (“Chicken egg waffle” – literally translated from Cantonese). Unlike western style waffle, the Hongkong style one looks like bunch of chicken eggs.. LOL.
Ok gotta wrap up this post as posting these food pics makes me HUNGRY and it’s almost 11 pm!
