Sick boys and their remedies

A tiring weekend as I was busy taking care of my 2 boys. Jamie was having shingles and I brought him see a Chinese sinseh to kill the snake rash. The red rashes was on and off since then especially on his face. Hope he recovers soon. Actually I never knew babies as young as Jamie could develop shingles. Must be the weather or some viruses spreading around. And another concern I have is the dengue outbreak as I just heard from my SIL of the high numbers of cases of dengue in the area where I stay. Sigh!

My 4-year old boy was also not feeling well. Had vomitted twice on Friday morning and he slept most of the afternoon as well as Saturday morning. Must be the weather as he has been following around under the sun few days before that. 

Luckily after a good rest he was fine yesterday and back to his cheeky self again. I was a bit concerned as he has stomach infection last year when ever he has flu. But luckily this is not the case this round otherwise it would be worse.

I cooked him some chicken porridge on Friday evening. He ate a bit citing stomachache. He worried he will vomit if eat too much. Lol.

It is a simple porridge. Learnt this from my MIL. Just throw some chicken wings (cut at joints) together with washed rice in slow cooker. Add water and some tung chai. Let it cook for about 3-4 hours and when ready, add salt to taste. I also add few tbsp sesame oil too.

Hope the kids will be well very soon. When kids get sick, we the mummies will be the zombies, I can relate.. My porridge is more simpler than yours.. Throw in chicken breast and chopped carrots only, hehe..
