Posh Nosh

Well, we celebrated my hubby's birthday a couple of months ago at Nosh Restaurant & Bar a couple of months ago. It was our first time in this restaurant and we were charmed by it. To be frank, this was not the intended restaurant we wanted to go. It was the first time we explored this Rochester Park though I used to stay pretty near. We were having problems locating the intended restaurant.  He used GPS and that GPS led us here instead. Though that GPS is not working too well but we were glad we settled here. 

Nosh (meaning meal or light snack) , located at 9 Rochester Park, serves modern bistro fare in a beautiful historic black-and-white house that is set in lush green surroundings. We hesitated but stepped in nevertheless as hubby says mosquitoes were most active at evening. He feared Little One would be bitten by mozzie since she is very prone to getting mozzie bites. 

Upon entering, Little One saw a 2 seater swing near the black and white house and immediately sat on it. After some short fun, we climbed up the stairs to the reception area. We were greeted by a waiter almost immediately and was led to the air-con area. On the way, I was wowed by the romantic candle lights and lush greenery. Pretty relaxing and romantic if you ask me. Perfect as a wedding venue!

The country decor is extended indoors too. Though there is no candle lights here, the lighting is pretty soft. It is as if we are dining in someone's home at the countryside! 

Enjoying her drink
Our starters came together. After we finished these, our main dishes came together too!

Kurobuta Pork Belly - S$29.  Hubby said this is nice! Like char siew. 

Herb Roasted Chicken- S$28. Rather juicy and tender

With stuffing in it. 
Although the food is expensive (We spent about $$90+), we enjoyed ourselves very much that night with good food and laughter. The waitress who served us was very attentive. She provided kid tableware for Little One. When we were mid way through our dinner, she was kind enough to come over to enquire how the food was. She had certainly made our day too!

Conjunctivitis

We are forced to stay at home over the last weekend. 
doing her school homework.
Little One had contacted conjunctivitis a few days ago. I noted her right eye was slightly swollen and her eyelid turned pink. She woke up from with yellowish sticky discharge in her eye. I brought her to the doctor and it was diagnosed as conjunctivitis. She was given eyedrop and a medication to stop itchiness. The medication and consultation fee cost S$40 which is rather expensive.
Conjunctivitis
For 3 consecutive days, we do not see major improvement with her condition. Her eyelid remains pink and there is still yellowish discharge. Hence, she had to miss out her cousin's birthday party. She was pretty upset about this but we got her some pieces of "old school cakes" to cheer her up. I was pretty worried she would not be able to attend her school concert which is coming this week. She had been practising and is very excited about it.  Fortunately, her eye recovered today.

Little One had a bad habit of rubbing her eyes especially when she is tired. I have constantly warn her that germs would get into her eyes if she would not stop the habit. It was shown in this case that my advice had fallen into deaf ears.


Some "old school cakes" to cheer her up
Tips for Staying out of the way of conjunctivitis.
Probably, I should not say tips since I have not successfully prevented Little One from getting conjunctivitis but.conjunctivitis is contagious. These steps will prevent further spread of the germs.
  • Encourage the child to keep a good habit of not rubbing or touching the eyes with the hand. 
  • Wash hands often with soap and water
  • Wash discharge with clean towels. Wash the towels and your hands with warm water and soap after using.
  • Wash your bed linen and towels in hot water and detergent.
  • Don't wearing eye make-up.
  • Do not share eye make-up with anyone.
  • Wear glasses instead of contact lenses. Throw away disposable lenses and clean extended-wear lenses and all eyewear cases.
  • Avoid sharing personal items such as unwashed towels and glasses.
  • Wash your hands after applying the eye drops to your eye or your child's eye.
  • Do not use eye drops that were used for an infected eye in a non-infected eye.
