It is with a heavy heart that I am letting you know that I will be shutting down my website, This is because I will be retiring at the end of June, and cannot afford to maintain the website. However, I know that many of you still look forward to reading the articles, so don't worry, I will be transferring the articles to my existing blog,

Thank you for your support all these years.

Warmest regards,

Rat Lungworm disease

If you have small children be careful when they are playing in the garden and please wash your veggies and fruits thoroughly before eating as accidental ingestion of slugs can lead to a serious infection called rat lungworm. It is best to soak green leafy vegetables in salt water for about 10 mins as salt will kill the slugs or snails. Please view the video for how the infection can happen.

Review of my book

I am on top of the world because of the excellent review of my book from the Star news paper’s website

The best book on feeding for Asian parents

17 October 2011


“This is not a dolled up book. At first glance, you might not even want to pick it up. The cover is not particularly attractive and the pages do not look impressive.

However, not picking it up would be the worst decision you make if you're a new mother.

Pick it up, for although there aren't beautiful studio photos inside and the layout of the pages looks a bit textbook-like, the content is irreplaceable and indeed a gem.”

Dangerous light bulbs

I just received this email from a friend in the USA so I thought I'll share it with anyone who uses this type of bulbs.

Below is a picture of a CFL light bulb from my bathroom. I turned it on the other day and then smelled smoke after a few minutes. Four inch flames were spewing out of the side of the ballast like a blow torch!

I immediately turned off the lights. But I’m sure it would have caused a fire if I was not right there. Imagine if the kids had left the lights on as usual when they were not in the room.

I took the bulb to the Fire Department today to report the incident. The Fireman wasn’t at all surprised and said that it was not an uncommon occurrence. Apparently, sometimes when the bulb burns out there is a chance that the ballast can start a fire. He told me that the Fire Marshall had issued reports about the dangers of these bulbs.

Upon doing some Internet research, it seems that bulbs made by “Globe” in China seem to have the lion’s share of problems. Lots of fires have been blamed on misuse of CFL bulbs, like using them in recessed lighting, pot lights, dimmers or in track lighting. Mine was not in any of those. It was a normal light socket. I bought these at Wal-Mart. I will be removing all the Globe bulbs from my house. I have not decided yet if we are going back to incandescent bulbs at this point.
Just thought you should know.
