A picky eater and a colorful sandwich

My 4 years old is a very picky eater. It is a challenge to get anything into his throat.
Now he can even pretend that he get chocked by the food I ask him to eat such as broccoli , chicken or meat but there seems to be no chocking problem with his ice cream or chocolates.
This is what I made him recently so he would eat his lunch, sigh !
MM sandwich with cheezto :)

Simple home cook lunch

Even though I don't have a lot of times to prepare lunch and dinner due to the fact that I am a full time student and a 4 years old to attend to plus with all the house chores. I still like to have home cook meal for my family.
However, sometimes I like to buy package food and add on a bit of home cook food :), for eg this chicken pies with home baked fries and garlic bread is one of the cool example :).

Visit Australia.

Monday, October 22, 2007

Australia has been my second home for a long time. I lived in Sydney, Australia for more than 15 years. A lot of my American friends always tell me I am a lucky girl because Australia is one of the places that they wanted to go.

Sydney has a special place in my heart. I always think it is the world most beautiful city. It is one of the those cities you don't have to travel too far to find things to do and places to see.

There are a few places in Sydney you do not want to miss out when you visit Sydney : The rocks region which has the biggest concentration of history buildings in Sydney. Sydney Darling Harbor areas, Circular Quay areas that house Sydney Opera House, King Cross which is the known red light district area and of course not forgetting the artist areas: Oxford street and Paddington Market.

And of course not forgetting King street Newtown which I lived for many years. South of Glebe is Newtown, which can be reached on bus numbers 422, 423, 426 and 428. King Street is the main street where you'll find bookshops, cafes and plenty of cool clothes stores. This joins with Enmore Road, where you will find more shops and a wide variety of cafes and restaurants. Newtown has a blend of class and grunge, and has good nightlife often hosting a number of live bands. King street has such a cosmopolitan feel, you can find the best Italian pizza, the best Lebanese sweets and coffee and the best Greek coffee.

And of course all the beautiful beaches around Sydney, Bondi, Bontee, La Parous, Rose Bay, Watson bay and many others.

This is the thee sunset view of Sydney skyline taken from my apartment at Kingstreet, Newtown on 1990.

I did my high school in Melbourne and there are lots of nice places to see in Melbourne. Don't leave Melbourne without visit the areas around Yara river and Philip Island where Phillip Island Nature Park offers a unique Australian wildlife experience and is home to the famous Penguin Parade at Summerland Beach.

I visited Brisbane during the World expo at 1988. If you love beaches, you will not miss Brisbane's Gold Coast.

When you decided to visit Australia, do not forget to save on your motel expenditure. You want to go to CheaperthanHotels.com.au where you can find affordable Sydney Hotels, Melbourne Hotels, and Brisbane Hotels.

FDA Bans Tattoo Removal Creams?

Wednesday, October 17, 2007

I am not sure if you have heard about the news that the FDA has proposed a ban on over the counter bleaching creams used for tattoo removal : tattoo removal. If you have tattoo or know someone who has tattoo, you might want to know this info or you might want to pass on this information because it has came to my attention that the FDA has proposed a ban on over the counter bleaching creams used for tattoo removal due to an ingredient that has been linked to cancer.

" Headline: FDA bans Tattoo Removal Creams?

San Diego - With the launch of it’s new website, Inkbusters.com warns the public about possible health risks associated with using tattoo removal creams purchased on the Internet. The new site states “many” tattoo removal creams sold online contain Hydroquinone, which is usually the active ingredient in skin bleaching creams.

In August 2006 the FDA proposed a ban on over the counter skin bleaching creams containing Hydroquinone due to concerns about Cancer and Exogenous Ochronosis. This proposed ban is similar to those already enacted in Japan, France, Great Britain and Australia for the same reasons.

InkBusters.com CEO Rick Barker notes, “Indirectly—and probably without knowing it—the FDA is saying they think the tattooed public may be at risk if they use tattoo removal creams containing Hydroquinone. This is particularly true when you consider most skin bleaching cream makers––prescription or OTC––never recommend Hydroquinone be used more than 4-6 months for maximum effect. Many tattoo removal cream makers online offer supplies well beyond this recommended period.”

InkBusters.com sells TCA at its website to help consumers remove tattoos in a natural non-laser fashion. TCA is a popular non-prescription skin-peeling agent commonly used by doctors, health spas and private individuals to remove fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars on the face. TCA has twice been medically tested and proven to fade and/or remove tattoos on the body. TCA looks and feels like water and is applied with a q-tip. There is no Hydroquinone in TCA."
