DIY - Felt Flowers

My hands are just itching to do some handicraft! and i chanced upon this website where it teaches you how to do Felt flowers and it looked so pretty! So i must have one done too for myself and if ever for my daughter!!!
 Here's a white version which reminds me of Marc Jacob's Daisy! Really love this one!
I'm going to sew a hair clip and brooch clasp onto them so that i can use them as a hair accessory and brooch too!

Jamu at Tradtional & Holistic Postnatal Center

I've signed up for my Jamu at the Traditional & Holistic Postnatal Center and my masseuse is Madam Haiza.
She's really friendly and made my massage quite enjoyable!
Not only did she use the hot stone to massage the back and tummy, it was also used for my blocked ducts in my breasts. After the massage, my breasts were much softer and not as hard as before.

So mummys out there, if you need a Jamu masseuse, you can go to them!

Each package includes:
-Specially designed binder (Bengkung)
-Massage oil
-Applications of herbs on the forehead
-Tapel (Jamu wrap for the tummy)
-Ginger wrap
-Herbal cream wrap and application of slimming cream
-Complementary Telon Oil for baby
-Teaching mother the baby massage sequence

Each session lasts approximately one hour and ten minutes. (That's 1 full hour of massage and 10 minutes to apply herbs and put on the stomach binder).

Velle Can Cook 34- Shanghai style Dumplings

mince pork, seasoned with light soy sauce, pepper and sugar
minced prawns
cloud's ear sliced
carrots chopped
water chestnuts chopped (important ingredient for that wonderful crunch feeling!)

Wrap the dumplings before cooking so that the skin won't stick to each other.
if you must wrap in advance, then i suggest you cover with wet towel and leave in fridge, although the sides will still stick!

In a pot, boil water, add chicken stock or chicken cube, blanch veggies and once it turns dark green, remove from water.
Add in your dumplings and let it boil for 2-3 mins. Once they start floating, means that they are done!
Serve hot!
