Hi, Regina
As i am already on leave, only be back on the 4th day of new year so not able to give you the recipes u requested. However, i have discuss with auntie irene and we will put salad prawn in our program lineup. But gotta wait for your turn lah. :)
As for the jelly fish, you may go to NTUC to buy the already seasoned-ready-to-eat jellyfish, 1 packet for about $5 or $6 only. So Chinese New Year, you can make this cold dish for your big family.

Chris, your mango pudding will be arranged after chinese new year hor!

Hi, God Bless,
actually all the recipes are in both Engliah and Chinese, maybe you need to scroll down further to see.
Thanks for your support!

Hi Violet,
I need your help!!!!!
My bb gal is now 3 months old...
I've been breastfeeding since day 1 until now. My mom's bb sitting her now. Hv told her since the day I left my gal in her hand tt breastmilk only need to warm up in hot water for 10mins but I caught her 炖奶 over the fire!!!! Gosh! All the nutrients would have gone! I told her not to do tt again but she insist she's not cooking it! She's a very BIG fan of yours and am sure she'll listen to you! Pls tell all bb caretakers abt this importance if the bb's still drinking breastmilk. I guess old follks are rather ignorance about breatfeeding...
Secondly, my nurse has been telling me during my antenatal class that bb powder is not recommended for newborns as the particles from the powder is harmful to the newborn. Have told my mom the same thing but she's complaining my bb smell of milk and is stink!!!! Oh my god... pls Violet, help me to enlighten her! Get the nurse to speak on air and enlighten them on the reversed effect of using bb's powder... Tks so much...
P.s Eh... dun hv to be so precise in every words I mention here. Jus mention the key points. Tks...

I think, April, u must have stopped using your iron for quite some time, that's y no steam coming out. My experience told me that, just add a little salt to the water for filling in the iron, the steam will start flowing again. But only add once hor, cannot everytime add, otherwise your clothes will become salty, hahaha......... just kidding.

Dearest Violet,
Sorry for late reply!
Yes, I've heard your reply & have asked my mom to tune in as well. She heard it & really hope she'll follow cos I can't be spying on her all the time...
Btw, u've missed out my second inquiry on the use of bb's powder.
And tks a zillion for all the advise... Just heard your comments on drinking water! How I wish I've heard this earlier. As u koe am b/feeding, all the old folks kept asking me to feed my bb with plain water when she hiccups during my confinment.. but I was told during my antenatal class that there is no need to as our breast milk is good enough.
Tks again for sharing all the knowledge you have. Best wishes to you & your family...

Cheers
Steph

DJ Violet 粉樱 said...

Hi all,
now got some time to reply to your comments.

April, my research also says the same as kaypoh listener regarding your steam iron issue. Thanks to kaypoh listener! Rgding the egg in the conditioner method to soften your hair. Kaypoh listener is right again. Addy said if you want better results, gotta use egg yolk.

Ben, you are very clever to advertise here leh. Maybe i should do a programme on job seeking again so that i can read your classified ads on-air too.... :)

Thanks to steph for listening and your compliments. Hope my programme is beneficial to you. Rgdg the milk powder issue, i have covered this topic already some time ago. Yes it is best to provide purely breastmilk, but i cant stress tis too much on-air coz some poor mothers out there who do not have enough milk will feel bad and self-blamed. Once, a mother-in-law is so worried coz the daughter-in-law insist to give breastmilk which she cant produce, then the baby has been starving for 10 days!!! So the mother-in-law is so helpless and called for help and ask me to persuade the in-law to start feeding milk powder to the baby. If really have breastmlik, of course good. But if really dont have, we also dont have a choice but to give powder milk liao. :(
So here, what i need to do is also to strike a balance.

Mrs Ang, i will get in touch with you on Wed ok?? Thank you.

Dear Violet

I have a 5 yr old girl. She is the only one child in this family. She like to talk to the toys when she is playing. At first we ignore, but later on found out that when she is sitting in the car or walking in the street, she will keep on talking of her own language. Is her behaviour normal? Pls help. TQ

Violet,

Do you think your "Ying er Ri Ji" could expand the discussion topic to teenagers instead of only restrict to babies only.

As I am facing some problem with my child and I hope to get some feedbacks and solutions from the listeners.

Yesterday, regarding the choked basin. There is this cheapest method. We can get this from the market grocery stall. In hokkien when call it "huan". It is white in colour and is in lump form like small rock. Break them pour it into drainage pipe then boil water and pour in slowly. It is very effective. To maintain the sink pipe from choking, boil hot water and pour in slowly this will wash away the grease trap in the pipe.

Violet,

I had been trouble by this problem regarding my child for quite some time.
I saw some marks she had left behind by cutting herself using penknife and when I ask her about it, she says that her friends has more and she had been just gone run away from home and most of her friends are doing that. And the worst part is that I had saw love bite on her and I am afraid that she could had been taken advantage of. And the friend that she is mixing with has been caught stealing a couple of times and had smoking habit. But I really disapprove of her being together with her friends but she claimed that she is the only friend that she has in the school.

Could you / your listeners offer some solutions as how to control her.

Thanks
Mrs Koh

Hi Violet,

I read thru the post earlier and found out from Steph's post that you have mentioned anout drinking water during your baby's program, my wife was listening then but she only got the method of steaming the express breast milk, may i ask what is it about the drinking water? Are you refering to the baby or mum (OR DAD hee) ? Also at which month is it recommended to start trying to feed the baby plain water? sorry that i miss out your program... Thanks for the time.

Hi Violet,

One more question, is it true that the mum should not do rebonding during breastfeeding?

So if the mum has enough milk for the baby for a year, she will need to do the hair 1 year later?

Please advice, asking on behalf on my wife... kekeke...

Thank you

GaRFieLD said...

Dear Violet,
Tks for the reply & advise.
Agree totally if there's no milk, den there's no choice but to feed formulae.I've plenties of milk but my dear mom still give formulae to my gal in the nite which I found out only recently.Haiz, so upset..

Hi Daven,
We're refering to BB not mommy nor daddy.. hehe
If your wife is still b/freeding, in fact there's no need to give water to bb. If reali need to, 1 or 2 teaspoon will do. I've learnt fm my own experience cos my bb's 3 months old now, and I'm still breasfeeding. My bb stop her hiccups less den a min once I feed her wif only a few suck from her bottle. Hope this will help...

Cheers

Hi Violet,
Eh.. so sorry, tik u've mistaken my bb's powder as milk powder... I was actually refering to 爽身粉. Here was my message to you.
"Secondly, my nurse has been telling me during my antenatal class that bb powder is not recommended for newborns as the particles from the powder is harmful to the newborn. Have told my mom the same thing but she's complaining my bb smell of milk and is stink!!!! Oh my god... pls Violet, help me to enlighten her! "

Hi all,

Jessica, i have covered the topic on drinking water recently. Hope you never missed.

As for blossom, i will look for a baby psychologist to talk about this topic, so do look out for it. But according to some listeners who called after i mentioned this problem on air casually, they said it is alright, not to worry....

Yes, Mrs koh, my "YING ER RI JI" do open to discussions for teenagers too. Why i covered babies topics is because these are they questions brought up by the listeners... As fro your question, i will find a suitable speaker to talk about this, please look out ok?

As for guan lian, there will be a new segment coming uo soon helping you to look for your family or friends besides looking for houses.

Xueli, thanks for your input for my prog.

Daven, the answer to your question is you can start giving water when baby start to eat solid food. Becoz before this, they can get the liquids in the form of milk.

Joanne, i have brought this matter up to the relevant dept liao...

Liyan, i also dont know where to get it. Maybe some one can enlighten??

As for the wanting to be mother,
my friend's chinese doc is Ban Choon Chan. Add: Blk 81 #01-636 Marine Parade Central. I heard gotta wait very long and i have been trying to call them for interviews but the phone can never get through.... maybe you can go and see this doc and help me to pass a message to this doc that i am trying to contact him.

Steph, i will cover this topic on talcum powder in my prog. Do look out ok??

GaRFieLD said...

Dear Violet,
Tks for covering on the talcum powder topic.... Very useful... & Hope my mom will follow! hahaha...
Tks a lot!

Cheers

Dear Violet,
My son's is eight years, will it be fine if I give him drink Fresh milk/HL milk only morning and night.
Recently he came back home, and start complaining that the school teacher always us the word "Monkey" for reprimanding them. For example, what is the monkey standing there doing? And he felt that the teacher always like to find fault with him. But he has no problem with his school work. He can do his homeword indepentenly with less guidance.
Teacher like to use the remark that he is forgetful. Sometimes he forgot to bring books to school. For example , if within a month, this hapened two times that he forgot to bring books.(Not every month). Do you consider this is very forgetful? He always packed his own bag. I make him be responsble for his own things.
Whenever, he feedback to me about the treatment from his teacher, he will start to cry and feel very upset. What can I do to help him.
Thank you.
