23rd Jun (Sat)

Start my day with exercise, but rushing for me, as after the exercise, I need to go back shower, make sure my mum takes her lunch, then rush to church for cell group.

While on the way back, saw flower along the way.

After the cell group at church, I didn't stay for service as I need to rush off for a Caregiver Support Group at New Horizon Centre (Jurong Point) which starts at 2.30pm.  Topic is Effective Communication in Dementia Care by Cai Suqi, Social Worker (Alzheimer's Disease Association).

After the sharing by the speaker, refreshments is provided.  I did manage to chit chat with some participants.

There's a participant who mention that she went for the assessment with her mum at the Day Care Centre and her mum throw tantrum during the assessment and she was wondering how will it be when her mum starts Day Care Centre on Monday.

That reminds me of my mum when she went for the assessment at the Day Care Centre, she was okay during the assessment.  Only the day before when I told her that she's going to the Day Care Centre then that she throw tantrum, guess she might be thinking that I am sending her to the Nursing Home. And the day itself, she throw tantrum too, that I got to tell her that she will be going there in the morning and coming back in the afternoon.  And tell her she will follow the transport, whereby I will go to the Day Care Centre after she boards the transport as the transport is meant for her only.

Needs to buy dinner for my mum and was at Malaysia Boleh, saw pig organ soup which I had not try before, so order a bowl at $4.50.

With a bowl of rice @ $0.50

I was bless with some tau sar peah from my neighbour auntie (The auntie who also goes to the Day Care Centre, but different centre as my mum) daughter, who went Ipoh, from what I was told, it's 现做现卖.

24th Jun (Sun)

Zone 2 RC Senior Friendship Circle (For age 60 and above) is on every 4th Sunday of the month.

Told my mum, we go RC there, got food to eat.  Surprise that she said ok, if not, I have to come out with all sort of excuses to make her go.

Breakfast for that day - tang hoon with ingredients, my mum can't finish, no prize for guessing who has to finish it up for her.

After the breakfast session, we went to the nearby coffeeshop to eat her favourite sliced fish mee sua.  Order a bowl of sliced fish mee sua @ $3.50 with 3 dumplings @ $1.80 to share.  Total : $5.30

Afternoon, there is a combined cell meeting at church.  Lunch is provided.  My mum doesn't wants to go, reason being she wants to rest.

After the meeting, need to buy dinner for my mum and I had a plate of wanton noodle, no char siew, only wanton @ $3.30.  After eating the wanton noodle, I realise that I have overeat for the day.  As usually, I do not take rice or noodle for dinner.  Unless I am taking rice or noodle for dinner, then my lunch will be no rice or noodle.

22nd Jun (Fri)

22nd Jun (Fri)

1st Friday of the month, no breakfast session at PPHCSC as the staff went on a 1 day outing with some residents to Kluang.

2nd Friday of the month, staff of PPHCSC went church camp, so no breakfast session.

3rd Friday of the month, also no breakfast session, as it's Hari Raya Puasa.

This Friday, breakfast session resume.

As usual, bee hoon with you tiao, and then birthday celebration for those born in the month of June.

Then it's bingo time

Heard from a staff of PPHCSC that Uncle Tang is in hospital, got his ward and bed no., decided to pay him a visit.

While in the hospital, bump into a neighbourhood auntie, auntie and her husband and helper every Friday will be in PPHCSC for the Friday breakfast session.  Auntie husband is in hospital.  Auntie thought that my mum is in hospital, reply her that my mum is in the Day Care Centre, I came to the hospital to visit a neighbourhood uncle. 

Went with her to visit her husband, was surprise to see that the bed next to uncle, is a neighbourhood Malay uncle.

While at the ward, the couple helper is going back, auntie ask the helper to come back at 5pm, so as to feed uncle dinner.  She mention uncle doesn't wants her to feed, but the helper feed, he's ok.  

Was telling her, same case with my mum.  The Day Care Centre has told me that my mum's fingernails is long and ask me to cut for her.  But my mum has been giving all sorts of excuses, but when the Day Care Centre staff cut for her, she's ok.

The first time that comes to my mind is to inform the Chinese ministry Pastor of PPH Brethren Church as earlier on, during the breakfast session (Pastor is there), he mention that he will be visiting Uncle Tang.

After visiting Uncle Tang, went Hanis have dessert before going back.

Apple pie @ $2.50 with a coffee (I didn't take picture) @ $1.70.

Bought a squid otah @ $1.70 from Jem back home to eat.

20th Jun (Wed)

The weather is very hot when my mum was at the void deck waiting for the transport.  But 10 to 15 minutes after my mum board the transport, it started to rain cats and dogs.

I bought a bottle of cai po @ $3

Fried egg with cai po comes into my mind and I decided to cook it.


Earlier on, I received a SMS from one of the  Day Care Centre staff telling me that my mum fingernails is long and ask me to cut my mum fingernails.  Reply the staff to tell her himself also, see what my mum will said.  As usually, my mum will said, cut already, still have to cut.  So short, no need to cut, etc.  Then I received a SMS message from the staff again asking me to bring the nail cutter to the Day Care Centre and another staff will try to cut for her.

So I decided to go to the Day Care Centre in the afternoon.  When my mum saw me, the first thing she tell me, bring me to the toilet.  The worst part is, gong xi fa cai, she soil her undergarment.   Got to change for her and then I didn't stay in the Day Care Centre but quickly bring the dirty undergarment back to wash.

As the Doctor has prescribe 1 Bisacodyl Suppository and Fybogel Powder for my mum's constipation, I didn't insert the suppository but let her take the Fybogel Powder, didn't expect it to work so fast as the pharmacist mention it takes around 3 days.

19th Jun (Tue)

Usually, Polyclinic is always crowded and if no appointment, have to wait very long.  Their online appointment, only same day appointment.

Early in the morning, I have to go online and make an appointment for my mum.  Then, have to call the Day Care Centre and inform them that my mum will be going to the Doctor and then whatsapp the staff who ferry my mum to the Day Care Centre not to fetch my mum.

The Doctor was mentioning about inserting bisacodyl suppository into my mum rectum, it might takes 15 minutes to take effect, vary on different people.  In the end, the Doctor prescribe it to be taken back home.  As he mention, maybe if he were to do it on the spot, on the way home, my mum might have bowel movement.

After seeing the Doctor, ask my mum if she wants to go to the Day Care Centre, if not, thought of bringing her see where she wants to go makan to have our lunch.

She wants to go to the Day Care Centre, so bring her to the Day Care Centre.

My mum lunch, dry hor fun with fish and vegetables.

My lunch at a nearby coffeeshop, fishball mee pok @ $2.50.

After that, I did not go back to the Day Care Centre.  Was tired, so went back for a nap.

18th Jun (Mon)

Initially, my plan is to bring my mum to the doctor due to her constipation problem.  But she throw tantrum and insist on not going to the doctor.  Told her, if by next morning, there is still no bowel movement, she needs to go see doctor.

After my mum boards the transport, I was at PPHCSC, one of the staff ask me whether if I did got hold of Uncle Tang (I ever mention to her about Uncle Tang), she then told me they couldn't get hold of him and she didn't see him in church yesterday.  Uncle Tang attends PPH Brethren Church.  The staff then mention will try to contact his next-of-kin.  Something then comes into my mind, which is, could he be in hospital.  The staff then mention they ever have a case where they can't get hold of a person and they called up the hospital, at that time, hospital did release some information but not, not sure if hospital will release any information.

Before going to buy grocery, again, I went knocking at Uncle Tang door, but still couldn't get hold of him.

I was craving for fried chicken, and Popeyes came into my mind.  Ordered a 2 piece meal which comes with a biscuits and 2 pieces of chicken, 1 mild and 1 spicy.

The mashed potato should be regular size, as my mum loves mashed potato, I upsize from regular to large and bring back for my mum to eat.

Also a regular size soft drink, total : $9.10
