Remedy For Dandruff

Dandruff is back! Yes peeps, despite my regular shampooing with En Ba Wang (read here, my rambling about En Ba Wang). It all started masa cuti raya balik kampung haritu. I forgot to bring En Ba Wang back home and ended up using whatever-there-was in the shower. As a result, dandruff came back inhibiting my poor scalp. Not as much as before but it stubbornly stays on, despite me resuming back En Ba Wang. So, it's been like 2 months already and I am getting impatient.

Next, am trying to do my homemade remedy. Thanks to En Gugel. Here's what I found on the net.

:: Causes of dandruff
The skin of the scalp (and also of the whole body) is constantly renews itself by shedding the outer layer of skin cells. Most of the time this shedding is unnoticeable. But when this shedding becomes noticeable on the scalp, it is called dandruff.

Mild dandruff occurs not due to dryness of the scalp but usually is a result of too much oiliness of the skin. If you have large size flakes together with symptoms around your nose, eyebrows, ears, around your navel or genitals, it may be due to seborrheic dermatitis or seborrhea. Severe dandruff may be the result of psoriasis of the scalp. Seborrheic dermatitis may be caused by an increased number of a yeast-like organism (pityrosporum ovale) found on healthy scalp in low numbers. Dandruff can occur to anybody at any age. It should not be left untreated.

:: Prevention
For good hair without dandruff, drink at least 2 liter water daily, eat lots of salads, green vegetables, and fresh fruits. Combs must be washed as frequently and hair should be brushed regularly. Dandruff is a scalp condition that can be controlled. Too little oil or too much oil can result in dandruff.
:: Remedy
1. Mix 2 teaspoons pure vinegar in 6 teaspoons water and apply it on the scalp before going to bed. Tie a towel around the head. Wash your head next morning. After shampooing, rinse again with vinegar water. Treat your hair like this once a week for at least three months.
2. Mix 1 teaspoons lemon juice with 2 teaspoons vinegar and massage on the scalp. Wash your hair with an egg shampoo.
3. Take 1 part almond oil, 1 part pure sulphur powder, 2 parts 'surgical spirit' and 4 parts distilled water or rose water and mix well. Rub on the scalp.
4. Take 2 cup water, add 4-5 tablespoons dried thyme and boil for 10 minutes. Cool, strain, and use the mixture to massage scalp. Keep for half an hour.
5. Dissolve 2 aspirins in any dandruff shampoo and wash your hair.
6. Massage the scalp with almond oil. Dip a towel in boiling water and wrap it around the hair. Repeat it thrice or four times when the towel gets cold.
7. Make a shampoo by mixing 100g each of amla (Indian goose berry), reetha, and shikakai, and boil in two liter of water until the liquid reduces to half. Use this shampoo for one month. Dandruff will vanish and your hair will become thick.
8. Fenugreek seeds are also useful in the removal of dandruff. Grind fenugreek
soaked in water overnight. Massage this paste on scalp and hair and leave it for 15-20 minutes. Wash it off with a mild shampoo.
9. Wash your hair with warm apple cider vinegar. Then cover your head with a towel or a shower cap and leave for about 30-40 minutes. Rinse with plain water. Repeat 2 times a week until your dandruff goes away.
10. Take a palm full of baking soda and rub it on your wet hair. Wash it off with water. The baking soda should relieve the itching and help in reducing the problem ofdandruff.
11. Mix 100g witch hazel and 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice in 200ml water. Shampoo your hair and apply with cotton to the scalp when the hair are still wet. Repeat several times until the dandruff is treated.
12. Try Zest soap once a week. It may work for oily hair. It leaves your hair dry, so use conditioner to your hair only but try not to get it on your scalp. It has worked to get rid of dandruff for some people.

I haven't really decided which one I'd try first. Yang ada kat rumah at the moment cuma vinegar and lemon aje. Haruslah Kak Mon ke Carrefour jap lagi nih.

Kak Mon's Tudung Galore!

Iman now attends tutorial classes in Ampang Hilir twice a week, from 3.00pm to 5.15pm. Duration of 2 and 1/2 hours is not long enough for me to go back to Cheras and later come back to Ampang right. So what would you do to kill time?

I went shopping. To kill time. And my wallet.

First day (of last week), tudung galore!

Cotton Syria with the label AMRA. I bought these at one of the kiosks. There's one proper outlet selling the very same things, at the very same price but sombong ya hamat. Tak koser ai. Anyway, I thought I looked *ahem* nice enough in these but my husband said 'macam botak' <--- referring to inner.

Me in crumpled shawl. I know, tak match dengan baju. Ni otw nak pi beli roti canai for breakfast.

Anyway, anyone knows how to turn double chin into single chin?

A Drawing For Me

This, was drawn by Iman. It's for me, he wrote that 'umi' all by himself. Cool huh. While on the other side, even he doesn't know what he wrote :P

I am one proud mom nonetheless.
And oh, I love you too.

Tudung Kak Mon

Today is a pretty mandom day for me. The rain holds me back from my gardening. The boys, can't have fun outside so they fight inside. But let's not use that as an excuse to just laze around, shall we. Plus, we need rain, should not complaint about it. No rain no water maa.

I decided to get into my 'organizing' mode today. Nothing big, just re-organising my tudung. I can't do much with the kids around since they'll 'help' me in so many ways.

Anyway, just some personal note - I first donned hijab when I was in pre-U. I was 18. I didn't know what prompted me, it just happended. Like, 'eh nak pakai tudung la' and so it began. When I was in secondary school, there was one ustazah who fiercely warned us (at that time, lots of us not wearing tudung) about not covering. Did I mention fierce? Yep she was. I know she meant well but not all things should be done in such way when she still have other ways to convince us all. Like, you'll be rewarded for something you do instead of you'll be punished for not doing. This is just my thinking k.

Here's are what were to be organized today. Some dated wayyyy back during the time I've just started working. That's more that 13 years oredi! The versatile bawal that is. (bawal as in voile yer, not bawal as in pomfret). The latest being some shawls and syria. And some inners to go with those.

So, folded, unfolded, tried on, pondered upon. Here's are those I am keeping. Some will be given away.

Left - Plain chiffon.
Middle - Plain bawal or voile. again, those are not pomfrets okay.
Right - Cottons for jogging, gardening. yes, I have dedicated tudungs for vigorous activities. soft yet strong cottons. the ones you wouldn't mind to lap peluh with.

Left - Combination of syria and their inners, and Tie-Racks scarves
Middle - Combination of satin 'jemputan' from Sumatera and Mortada.
Right - Donatella (they were famous once okay). 2 top most are given by my parents after coming back from Hajj.

Left - Plain instant hijab.
Middle - Patterned instant hijab.
Right - shawls. I have just started my collection. Expect them to grow.

The 'uncategorized' or rather under the label 'miscellaneous'. Note the blue and orange. FOC from the company I worked for. Opsie.. correction work not worked.

This is my very first satin inner. Now can the designer come forward and tell us all who the model was? Coz people with head such as mind find our ears all terkelepet and red at the end of the day. Not just that, we went 'whattt??? boleh cakap kuat sikit?? this inner really make our telinga pengappp!!'
If it rains again tomorrow, expect more boring post from me *yawn*

Hot Chocolate Anyone?

My eldest, she has just finished her final exam for sekolah agama last week and will be sitting for sekolah kebangsaan's next week. For sekolah kebangsaan, In this Hulu Langat area, exams are held simultaneously, with standard questions.

She's quite goon in English alhamdulillah. Science, insyaAllah. Bahasa so-so. Math? Ini subject yang paling getir.. chewah! For the last few days, I've been giving her Math exercise, monitoring her and all. As of today, I am tensed and so she is. I am tensed as to why she can't understand me and she, on the other hand, is stressed as I can't make her understand. She is so me actually. Math and me just don't rhyme beautifully.

After giving some tips and some questions to ensure her understanding, alhamdulillah, she got them all right. Lega. She lega, I lega.

And this is my latest reward system - hot chocolate drink!

She's all smiles when I handed her a mugful of steaming hot chocolate drink. How comforting eh?

Tapi ada jugak yang tumpang sekaki... si Iman pun request satu mug untuk dia. No, Ummi cannot share, ini Iman punya aje. Okaylah Iman. I am sorry I can't give as much attention to you at the moment, nanti bila Kakak dah habis exam, I'll get back to you. You might not even like it he he.

Restoren Saba, Cyberjaya

Alhamdulillah. For the good meal Allah bestowed upon us tonight.

Tebby had a meeting in Cyberjaya few days back, and had lunch afterward in Restoren Saba in Cyberjaya itself. The food was good that he told his boss, he'd be of guilt until he brings me there. You'd better be!

So, he's officially guilt-free tonight. We've just came back from good, delicioux, fulfilling dinner that I told myself I need to do extra rounds of jogging next week. Obviously I over ate (wot's new nway?) Why not this weekend? Well, for one, tomorrow will be my pasar day and Bibik is taking a leave this weekend. I can't jog peacefully with three 'handbags' in tow right? Next week then. Remind me please, of that extra rounds.

Lamb Hanith. We ordered size L and shared this between me and Encik Amsterdam. The rice itself pun sedap that you can eat it on its own. The lamb, tho rich in bau kambing, sangat sedap jugak. So moist and tender that when you dip your fork in it, berlerai lerai daging from tulang. Ya, go on, drool. Memang sedap. This dish, Encik Amsterdam makan lagi banyak dari I.

Ini pulak Lamb Kebab. Sedap jugak. The meat is moist and flavourful. Actually it came with two strips of kebab tapi syok makan punya pasal, dah tinggal seketul baru teringat nak ambik gambar bagai. This, I ate almost all. Fair.

Encik Amsterdam minum air Barbarian ehh.. Barbican ni ha. He had 2 servings of this. I don't like it tho. Too gassy. I settled for something more 'regular' - fresh orange (ops! minum ais di malam hari, not good)

Last but not least, for dessert (ngada-ngada pulak malam ni, nak ber dessert-dessert bagai), I had Chocolate Pudding. The taste is just right, rich in chocolate taste but not overwhelmingly sweet. Served cold. (argghhh, sejuk lagi). I had meant *cough* *cough* to eat just a small portion and bring back some for Kakak but before I knew it *cough* *cough*, all is gone. This I had all for myself. Not fair huh?

That is me in my newly purchased blue-white checkered shirt and my not-so-newly acquired double chin. And zit mark. *sigh*

For those who don't know yet, I eksiden last week, Tuesday 12th October 2010. Here's the updates I made via Facebook (yep, I face-book these days lalalala <-- which explains why my blog is on on-off on hiatus)


Me and Iman eksiden petang tadi. I was driving back and sgt dekat dengan simpang rumah when suddenly kereta depan membelok masuk simpang. If you ask me, I'd blame the driver for suddenly taking a sharp turn. If you ask him, prolly he'd said I followed him tad bit too close. I donno. In split seconds it happened. Worse, we did not buckle. Had just stopped to buy some roti, afterwards we did not bother to buckle up (lame excuse, eventho my rumah is barely 50m dari situ).

I hit the brake and Iman hit the windscreen as the impact. Loud thud, I heard Iman wailing and screaming and I saw my windscreen retak kena kepala Iman. My heart stopped a beat. Terus pusing balik pegi klinik. Iman menangis menjerit2. Dia kata takut cermin pecah. Hanya Allah yang tahu perasaan saya waktu tu. Pecahlah cermin ke, kemek ke, Ya Allah selamatkan anakku.

After checking up, dr kata Iman ok. We were both perplexed as Iman only sustained a small tiny miny dot from the impact. Nothing else. Berkali2 dr tanya betul ke cermin kereta retak? MasyaAllah. My special child is indeed special. En suami kata, Allah tolong. Mungkin ada malaikat dikirimkan menghadang Iman.

Nevertheless, had I driven a little bit faster, worse thing could have happened. The screen could have been broken and threw Iman out. I can't even bring myself to imagine that. He's under 24hrs supervision and will be sleeping with me tonight.

Always, always buckle up peeps, eventho it's so near. Syukran Ya Allah. Nevertheless, pls doakan Iman is as ok as he seems to be.

Dr Amin, apparently still remembers us, the parents who sent their child a tad bit too late for hearing test to overrule hearing problems for their son's speech limitation (read here). He congratulated us for things we're doing for Iman and assured that my long leave is the most right thing to do. Duit boleh cari. If you wait too long, we can't do almost anything. By then, duit banyak mana pun dah tak berguna. <---- he told us

New Pots On The Block

This, is something I love doing. While I am at it, I could do......

---> a bit of shopping (being buying the pots and those colorful plants while exchanging info with the Amoi who mans the small nursery),

---> a bit of exercising (being carrying bags of soil, planting those beauties in pots and huffing and puffing carrying the pots here and there before finally settling into most preferred configurations) and later,

---> lots of admiring. Greens, pinks, purples, yellows, reds.


Not forgetting to mention, at a very low cost too.

I bought big ceramic pots at RM10 each. I needed 3 but had to settle for 2. Am driving a viva remember?
I bought small potted plants in full bloom at 3-for-RM10 (1 for RM4)
*chatted with Amoi* and I got those plants sold at RM8-RM10 each for 3-for-RM10 as well!

Amoi said 'Kakak, minggu lepan Isnin manyak pokok baru. Kakak datang ya'
Yelah tu Amoi, hasben ai balik keje petang-petang dok tegur you beli pasu lagi?
Yang, nasib baik you tak perlu tegur you beli handbag lagi?

Tapi, laman kita cantik kan, kan, kan.

Anyway, let's meet the new pots..

Lake Valley BTHO - Anak Suka, Ibu Setuju

Now that we're a single income family, of course we have to adjust our life in many aspects. Financial in particular. Not to the point that we have to really really make ends meet (this is to not to say we're freaking rich but more of thankful gestures), but hey, save anywhere that is possible without being unnecessarily and patheticly kedekut. Doesn't sound like me huh? Well, I grew up a lot for the past 3 months

*beam* (<---- Even my frens were terkejut I only bought a blouse in 3 months. Err.. actually there's 3. I conveniently left the other two out. But oklah, dulu more that 3 in a month okay)

Our weekly mall outing is reduced to every fortnightly. Sounds pretty insignificant. No? Going to malls with 2 kids in tow (one of them is very very demanding, I must say.. hemm), can be costly. Where can we go and what can we do to enjoy ourselves without having to rip off your wallet (hey, seekor transformers, on the average, is equivalent to 1/3 of my Pasar Kajang spree k).

One answer to that two questions.


There's this man-made lake nearby our house (that lake helps raise property price here, thanks to it), with small playground, ok-ok lah jogging track, lake full with overfed fishes (1/2 of those who come, actually just sits around feeding the fishes. 1/4 jogs and 1/4 dates).

Photo please.. (These were taken last Saturday. It took me a week to actually write something about it)

a home overlooking a lake. *drool*

told ya, the ikans are all overfed. gemuks.

Iman said let's play together. Which means, you push the swing while I have fun

Kakak, trying her hands on the monkey bars (is tat the name?)

Adam, went up and down the slide many many times

woots. sedang gigih mendaki untuk membeli eskrem.
