Again I have not updated my photos for a few days... it is kind of difficult to get any pictures taken on weekends as we are usually very loaded with activities. So I am again doing the mass updating of the macro challenge. However, these photos cannot be uploaded into my Flicker account as I have already max out the amount of uploads for this month.
Let's continue to walk ... down the scales we go!

Wow... finally, she is asking to do one of the crafts that I am doing.
But I don't knit... I crochet.
Coincidentally, I bought a set of plastic crochet hook the previous time at Spotlight with the intention of teaching her to crochet this coming school holiday.

June holidays will be coming up soon, even if you think that it is about two months away, you will be surprised by how it will snuck up at you and you being surprised by it.
So, I am thinking of conducting lessons for embroidery to kids.
Well, since I have the intention of teaching Ash a little of the skill, I thought why not have proper lessons along with other kids her age so that she will be more motivated.
So that is what I am thinking of ...
Should I or should I not?

This time round she was allocated to yet another specialist.
An old doctor ...
His words... (not exactly because I cannot remember word for word)
No dust! No heat! Dust and heat will make it all come back again,
The cream is working so just continue but it is not subsidised so it will be very expensive.
No playground... no har... you know... playgrounds very dusty and dirty.
No beach... no... beach is out. Got sand flies ... once bitten it will be worse for her.
Hmmm... cannot be too hot so the only exercise she can do is swimming.
Yeah... swimming can.
No eggs... eggs and milk is the common cause for allergy.
Even if she does not have now if you keep feeding her with it, she may react to them.
Her immune system is very hyper and so it is constantly on the high mode.
Another thing... no birdnest.
We did a research and found out that the commonest food allergy resulting in eczema is birdnest.
So no birdnest even if you think it will make her clever.
Hmmm.... how you come here?
Car... then everywhere she go, need to go by car. No bus... no heat har... heat will make it come out again.
Then eating out... all food centres must be air conditioned.
You house also ... air con most of the time.
Cannot save this kind of money.
No pets...rabbits, hamsters, dogs and cats.
Don't ever think of acquiring any pets in the future or her condition will be worse.
(Superpig and me looked at each other and the spark that went between us was... our chinchilla...haiz...)
We also did a lot of research on patients like her because their immune system, heart and brain are sensitive so they are actually more intelligent.
Many of our ministers also have this problem... so she may be our next minister.
How about the lady attorney general in the newspaper today... arh... she could be the next one.
Very intelligent... these kind of patients.
There... that was almost all that he said.
I find him very cute.
Well, at least he is not like the one at the other hospital.
He is nicer and friendlier.
The other one may be a little stuck up but he prescribed the right cream.
So, I can only say that God sent us to the right doctors.
And now keeping everything clean and almost dust free is the top priority.
Exhuasting...any volunteers to help me with the vaccuming and the dusting and the weekly washing of bedsheets?

Since I joined in the fun seven days after it started, I am posting a few photos to catch up.
I must say that I am enjoying this challange very much.
However, I get giddy looking into the viewfinder of the camera trying to get it to focus.
Another thing, why does the flash automatically comes on when I am in the macro mode?
And with the flash, the photos did not turned out as nice so I switched it to manual mode and go as close to the subject as I can. That explains the giddiness after taking the photos.
Anyone got any advise?

And when I walked into the house, I see the little mess left by Aver.
Then, there was the waiting in the car for a parking space while going to pay respect to my late father.

We travelled all the way there (from the North East to the West) and waited patiently for the appointment.
Once in the room with the doctor, we were quite disappointed with what he had to say.
Apparently, he did not know why we were there and we were suppose to be going to the paediatric department for the blood test. He did not seemed interested in what we had to say but insisted that Aver's condition is a typical atopic eczema. His comment of there is no cure for it except to accept the condition and also that by travelling round the island in the hope of finding a miracle doctor with a miracle cream is useless, did not do anything to reassure us at all.
Excuse me, doctor... we were here because we were told that by having a blood test done it may help eliminate the causes or at least we know that we do not have to avoid all kinds of food types.
Never mind his "all so mighty" attitude, I know that the Lord will heal Aver.
I claim in the name of Jesus Christ, by His Blood, Aver will be healed!
Well, before that happens (which will be soon), I "healed" her too.
I would like to move on and also to eventually forgive those who cause all these hurt. As for now, I just want to be as far away from them as possible until I have the ability to face them again.
So here are the completed bibs ... please let me know what you think of them.
