Fever One After Another...

~ Posted on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 11:51 AM ~

My 13 months old girl was down with fever last Friday and as usual, we will let her wear the fish-net type of clothing and keep putting on wet hanky on her forehead to bring down her temperature.

She recovered on Saturday though she was still a bit weak. She normally likes to point at stuff when she wants something, but when she was sick, her pointing is also weak, the hand is outstretched but finger is still weak and pointing down. I'm so glad she was not fussy at all when we collected our Nissan LEAF car during the official ambassador launch event.

And on Sunday, it was my 3.5 years old boy's turn to get fever. I have been administering paracetamol to him every 4 hours when his temperature exceeds 37.4C

On Monday 8th Oct, his temperature at 3.30am was 38.4C and at 8.20am was 38.7C. I immediately bathed him in lukewarm water, change a new set of fish-net clothes for him, feed him his breakfast (oats with raisins) and then he pooped and continued watching his TV (guess it will be relax day for today).

Btw he was still active, alert and playful as usual though a bit more quiet when his temperature was at 38C-ish. And yeah, he kept taking off the wet hanky I put on his head so in the end I decided to do this:

Found an old hairband which I don't use anymore (my hair is short nowadays), wash and wet it and put it on his head. DIY at the spur of moment, as long as it works. His temperature at 11am is 37C, so I hoped it will go down and back to normal soon.

Product Review - YogaToes®

~ Posted on Wednesday, October 3, 2012 at 8:17 AM ~

The first time I saw the pitch for this product, I went 'Wh-at?! You mean there are products out there that let my toes do yoga?!'

Now did you know that 25% of bones in our body are located in the feet which are made up from 52 bones? And did you also know that women suffer from 4 times as many foot problems as men? It is important that women wear correctly fitting footwear as on average they walk 3 miles further every day than men. So with all these foot facts, all the more I got to review it! So here goes my review for the "YogaToes®":

About the product:
"The patented ergonomic design of YogaToes® works between, above and beneath toes to stretch them apart from each other, away from the ball of the foot and down from the top of the foot. Stretching and working the muscles increases circulation. You know how good you feel after a workout or a massage. Now your feet can enjoy the same results! All you have to do is slip into a pair of YogaToes®. YogaToes® help improve & prevent common foot problems like: hammertoes, bunions, Plantar Fasciitis, crossed toes and poor circulation."

I requested for XS size and purple color as it is one of my favorite color. My first impression when I saw the product is it looks like flubber, you know one of those jelly rubber toy. I took it out from the packaging and found out that it is quite heavy and yes, it is flubbery hahaha... The two ends of the YogaToes® allows you to easily split it open to slide in your big toe and small toe. The YogaToes® does not feel sticky at all.

I gently slide in my toes into each YogaToes® and just relax and continue doing my work while my kids took their afternoon nap. What a bliss! The first time, I did this for about 5 minutes and it felt weird. My toes were stretched out for 5 minutes and the sensation after taking off YogaToes® is weird of course. The next day, I repeated this again and this time, it does not feel weird at all.

According to the website, it says "As with any conditioning program, YogaToes® might be uncomfortable at first. This most often means your feet really need them! As soon as you put them on, you will feel your feet responding. Pay attention to your feet - we are so used to foot pain, we tend to ignore them." So I guess, this product is working for me!

I am very happy I get to review this and will continue to use it as regularly as I possibly can.
