Our Stay in Avillion, Port Dickson

We went to Avillion Port Dickson during mother's day. The stay was enjoyable.

Our premium water chalet was well situated with sea view. The toilet is special, I like it most. It has an open concept shower where the sky is above you. The resort has three nice pools. The children's pool with slide in the Village Court area was always in heavy use.

I had a surprise at the dinner function. I bumped into Melvin and Don. Melvin was the MC for the night, with Don assisting him. I can't recognise him from far initially. It was the way he talked and acted that made me checked him out : )

Melvin has two sons, Don too with two. Not much of chatting, as it was quite late when they finally get their rest.

Before our dinner, the organiser gave us two batik sarong to dress up 'creatively'. Yi Chian had it around his waist. I've made it a wrap outside my short., Ern Tong asked for the same. With no sarong left, I've used my scarft to wrap her into 'little sexy beach princess'.... and ... she won a price!!! That makes the dinner extra joy.

Children fall asleep at 11.45pm. In the middle of the silent night, we peacefully enjoying our peanut and beer at the balcony . The sea waves go soft and silent like the breeze...... I feel wonderful tonight!

Meantime, for the children, they enjoy almost every single moment of the stay. To name it, the beach, the swimming pool, the mini zoo, the dinner function, the snooker and even during our buffet breakfast. What a Sweet Sweet Memory : )

My dad is having painful rashes around his waist line. According to Chinese healer (shinsei), this is called "snake" and if it goes a full round on the waist, it can be fatal!

What is "snake" and is it serious?

July 11, 2008, Dr. Ng said...

"Snake" is a name given by chinese for a medical condition called "Herpes Zoster". This is because the pattern of the rashes distribution like a band or "snake".

Traditionally, chinese people believe that when the "snake" grow one complete circle around one's body, he will die. Of course, now this is proven not true.

Herpes zoster is a reacitvation of the so call chicken pox virus. Your dad had chicken pox ( Varicella ) infection sometime ago. At that time, the virus will spread all over his body and developed multiple small blisters ( chicken pox ). After sometime, his body developed antibodies to kill all these viruses and he recovered from chicken pox. Since then, he has this antibody is his blood and is immuned against chicken pox. Therefore, one usually will get infected by chicken pox once in his life time.

However, for some reason, some viruses escaped the attack from these antibodies and managed to hide somewhere in our body, usually is in the nerve cells. For many years, these viruses remained dormant in your dad body........ until now ..............they are back again.

For unknown reason, these viruses are active again. Unlike the first time, this round they cannot spread to the whole body because antibodies are everywhere. They just grow along the nerve cells where they hide.

The distribution of our nerve cells follows segment called dermatome. That means each segment of our skin supplied by a group of nerve cells. Each segment is name after the vertebra e.g. T3, L5 , S4. It also divided to left and right side. You can imagine this like a building with different level. If a terrorist hide in one level, he can only cause damage to one level. He cannot cross to other level or even the opposite side of the same level because of the security.

Therefore, the rashes on your dad body can only grow around one side of the body forming a "C" letter only. No question of becoming fatal if it forms one circle.

Chian, You Are My Super Hero

Who is your superhero? Ironman, The Incredible Hulk, The Dark Knight, Spiderman, Batman, Superman, Transformers, X-Men? Mine, like most women, is my very own husband, Yi Chian.
Writing and composing the blog is not at all easy for me : (
The most recent case was, the "loss of paragraphs" in majority of the published posts, making all sentences joining together. And hence, spending all day cracking my head trouble shooting. It was so weird that everything looks ok in the preview., but not ok in the published posts. Searching through the net for solution of similar cases and even posted my problem in a few forums. Feel so hopeless and upset...
Children go to bed at 9pm, giving them the opportunity to sleep at least 10 hours per night throughout early childhood. Chian came home at 9.50pm during weeknights., yet he is my superhero.
We went through the problem of the joint sentences, he has had a few click here and there, observing the differences of a few posts and started giving me a long lesson., most of the time coupled with a few examples.
Here you are, I have fixed them all in good order.
In the very beginning of writing and composing this blog, I have had bad experience of having to rewrite some of the published posts. Even simple instruction to embed photo albums and insert of links challenge me a lot.
Other than a good lecturer, my superhero can be a good technician, plumber, electrician, gardener and chef too. Above all, he is a 100% good doctor to patient, a responsible husband to wife, a caring father and friend to our children. He will do everything and anything to his best ability and knowledge.
To My Superhero, My Husband, A BIG THANK YOU !
