Few weeks ago, I had an asthma attack and it was pretty scary as I didn't have my medication with me. It sure been a long time I last had one.
Anyway, it is coming back again. This time triggered by the haze. My chest was tight just a day before the haze started to get really bad. I thought that it might be because I was tired but when the haze started to thicken, I knew it wasn't. Went to see the doctor to get my medication but he discovered that I was also running a temperature. I told him that I didn't even feel sick, just with a tight chest. A test proved that he was right.
Being a homemaker, the saddest part is that when you are ill, you still need to function. Sometime I wish I am back to a little girl. Being love, care and pampered by mommy dearest.
Now I am luckier than 5 years ago, as I don't have to do 100% household work unlike last time. My helper is also very compassionate (a true blessing). Yesterday I just had to go out to top up the fridge and also to grab some presents for friends who become parents.
Luckily everything was done indoor. Grabbed and run. By the time I reached home, I was totally exhausted. With both kids not in school, getting peaceful rest is near impossible (I am a light sleeper). Thus sometime I wish I have a bigger house or a garden that I can sent them out. hahhaa.
A gloomy had passed. Today I am feeling a little better and since I have a cupcake commitment, I got up at 6am to bake despite waking up at 2am and couldn't go back to sleep till 3ish.
My little one is suffering from Bruxism and I am really tempted to seek Chinese medical opinion as the dentist told me that there is no cure, only to put mouth guard and since she is so young, he told me to hold on till she is bigger. She enjoys sleeping in our room but her teeth grinding often wakes me up. arrghhhh.
Since I am already baking with all the ingredients out, I took the chance to experiment another Vanilla Cupcake recipe that A asked me to try to see whether I can get a nice dome shaped cupcake which I have been seeking out.
A, here is my result. It is great but I think I still need to adjust the batter to each cup. I will pair it with some frosting later as I am flat out again.
Note: Sorry, I won't be able to share this recipe.
