Rachel got a bruise on her cheek last week.
She was standing on a dining table chair and fell off, hitting the table.
You can see a faint bruise under her right eye.
When I came home from work, the first thing she did was to manja me.
I gave her a hug and she pretended to cry for a while.
Then I suggested boiling an egg to rub on her bruise.
She waited while we prepared her favourite manja drink, Milo nen nen.
After 10 minutes the hard boiled egg was ready and we rubbed the egg on her bruise.
After a while, the bruise changed colour and wasn’t so brown any more.
See how manja she is.
The bruise was gone after a couple of days.
In the past few days, Rachel was sick. It started with some vomiting, then she got better for a day. Then she started to vomit.
Then Daryl started to vomit, and now he has diarrhea.
So much washing of bedsheets, clothes and everywhere they vomited.
The house is like a war zone.
I tried to keep some form of hygiene but somehow it wasn’t good enough. Daryl still got infected.
I just worry about Poey Chin getting sick too, because I don’t know what I’ll do if she’s unable to take care of the kids.
