What can we learn about being mortal?

Few days before our father’s death, which we didn’t anticipate [1], I was browsing the New York Bestselling list. Similar to my father who writes a book about his passion, I aspire to be an author whose books are widely read and benefit many people. Then, I encountered a book entitled “Being Mortal: Medicine and […]

How to stop lactating naturally?

On 20180123, I asked Dr T (an obstetrician/gynecologist) how to stop the production of mother’s milk naturally, without medication. It was my first (and perhaps last) consultation with her and she sounded unhappy that I was still producing mother’s milk for her thinking that I breastfed, but when I later explained that I pumped, she […]

What are our cookware and cooking utensils?

What are our dream destinations?

On 20170614, I showed Little Prince the photographs of his father taken while the latter visited Australia, Europe, and North America. Little Prince shared that he wanted very much to visit those places his father had been before. Some worth-considering dream destinations are listed below. Amsterdam as a place of living. Is it a good […]

What must we know about plastic?

On 20170129, I was disappointed to notice that the newly purchased breastshields for the breast pump have discolored [1]. While pumping mother’s milk for Little Princess, the pump (and its essential accessories) and the milk are analogous to the goose and golden eggs. They are precious! I also realized that while living in the desert, […]
