Top 10 Real Estate Tips for Buyers and Sellers

May 31, 2016

Property

If you are looking into either buying or selling real estate, you may be trying to figure out which advice to listen to. Consider checking out property listing sites like PropertyGuru Malaysia whether you are buying or selling property and read these top ten real estate tips for buyers and sellers.

Buyers Should Not Overreach on Price

A bidding war can cause you to overspend, but spending too much can make your house difficult to resell once the prices stabilize or sink. If you’re planning to live in your house long term, paying a premium on the house is not necessarily a bad idea. However, you should set a bid ceiling and look at similar homes in the neighborhood to determine how high to go. Don’t place all of your eggs in one basket. It’s important to have other options, so that you are less inclined to overbid on one house.

Sellers Should Not Set The Price Too High

Sellers often make the mistake of setting the price too high from the start, according to Realtor Mag. Unfortunately, this often causes potential buyers to overlook your listing and your house remains on the market for a long time and ends up underselling. You are actually much more likely to receive an offer close to your home’s real value if you set the price at about five to ten percent above the market. However, you should consider whether your home has better qualities than the other homes in your area. If so, it might be worth it to go much higher than the average market value. Also, do not feel like you need to offer to pay closing costs or offer additional incentives to the buyer.

What Your Child’s Poop is Telling You

May 27, 2016

 

It may be a messy business but it is a key indicator of your child’s health. This year, in conjunction with World Digestive Health Day on May 29, we draw attention to bowel movements in children and a common digestive issue amongst children – constipation[1]

Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

How are you today? Hope everything is great at your end. Due to World Digestive Health Day on May 29, I have an interesting piece of knowledge to share with you. To be blunt, I never even interested about the colour of my child poop leave alone the texture before I had a child haha… However, I remember even since she was a tiny little baby, every change of colour and texture get me super curious. I wish I have a indicator to help me translate the situation. Well, if you are in the same situation as me… you might want to bookmark this page. Hopefully it will come in handy. Do you know that your child’s poop is actually an indication of your child’s gut health?

Having a healthy gut helps your child to digest and absorb important nutrients from food which is essential for the healthy development of your growing child. Here are some tips which can help promote a healthy gut for your child.

What’s Normal, What’s Not?

Poop is also known as feces or stool, which is waste matter that is discharged from the bowels after food has been digested. The poop may vary everyday, depending on what your child has eaten. By keeping track of the changes in fecal features, such as shape, size, color, frequency and also consistency, you are able to understand your child’s gut health and ensure their overall health and well-being.

Bistrol Stool Chart

The Bristol Stool Chart[ii] is a useful guide commonly used by paediatricians that can assist you to distinguish types of stool.

· Type 1 and 2 suggest a potential risk of constipation

· Type 3 and Type 4 are normal stools which indicate a healthy gut

· Type 5, 6 and 7 suggest potential risks of infection or diarrhea, to which parents are advised to seek medical advice for the welfare of their children

Common symptoms of constipation generally involve infrequent, difficult, painful or incomplete release of hardened stools in children. When food residue remains in the large intestine for an extended period of time, too much water can be absorbed, and as a result, stools become harder and drier. When your child is trying to pass a large or hard stool, it will stretch the rectal walls and may lead to tearing and bleeding[iii]. This makes it even more painful for the child to pass motion and causes the child to continue “holding it”, out of fear or anxiety to avoid the unpleasant experience of passing hard stools, thereby creating a vicious cycle.

Parents are advised to keep an eye on the tell-tale signs of your child attempting to withhold bowel movements, such as squatting, rocking, stiff walking or crossing of the legsiii.

Constipation: Prevention is the Key

There are many factors that can contribute to constipation in children, such as variations in diet, developmental stage, environmental issue, emotional status or illness. To prevent constipation in your child and maintain a good gut health, here are a few recommendations:

1. Diet. Consistently offer foods rich in dietary fibre, such as whole grain foods, fruits and vegetables in you and your child’s diet. Children from 3-6 years old are recommended to consume 2 servings of fruits and 2 servings of vegetables daily[iv]. Parents have great influence on children’s eating habits, so if your children see you eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, they are more likely to follow your lead and be more receptive to all the food you consume. Hence, it is important for you to be a role model to your children.

2. Fluids. It is essential to keep children well hydrated, as inadequate intake of fluids will lead to constipation. Children between 2-3 years old are recommended to drink 1-2 glasses of plain water per day while children 4 years old and above are recommended to drink 6-8 glasses per dayiv.

3. Toilet Training. Studies show that there are two transitional periods in which a child is particularly prone to constipation; the first being at the time of toilet training, and during the start of school[v]. Parents are advised to encourage to your child to use the toilet regularly, such as first thing in the morning or 10 to 30 minutes after a full meal[vi]. Regular bowel movement whereby your child’s stool consistency is soft is one of the signs of a healthy gut.

4. Prebiotics. Research has shown that prebiotics such as fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) and galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) can help to promote softer stools for easier bowel movement[vii]. Prebiotics oligosaccharide mixture GOS/IcFOS (9:1) helps increase intestinal bifidobacteria and hence helps to maintain a good intestinal environmentviii. With good intestinal environment and good gut health, your child will experience fewer digestive discomforts, including constipation.

The digestive system, or gut, is a complex system that begins with the breaking down of food and ends with the elimination of waste products as stools. Proper functioning of the digestive system is important as it allows absorption of essential nutrients which children need for healthy growth and development[viii]. In essence, good digestion is key to good health, it is an important part of your child’s overall health and sense of well-being. To set the foundation for a healthy life, let’s ensure your child consumes enough fibre, water and foods containing prebiotics – it’s never too late to make good gut health a priority!

I hope you find this information helpful in understanding about digestive system and how you can aid your child to lead a healthy lifestyle. Happy World Digestive Health Day!!  Lots of love and hug goes out from my home to you and your family!

Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

Before I start this post, just like to check with you what do you worry most when it comes to your child well being? I have a long list if you ask me. Sometime I worried over if I am spending enough time with her? Does she have enough rest? Does she grow and catch up at a good rate? How do I instill a good manners? the list can go on and on and on…

One of my biggest worries would be does she have enough nutrient? I have been trying to experiment with her menu, making sure that we switch types of vegetables and type of fruits even protein to ensure she absorb as much. As she grow, she tend to develop personality and tend to express personal liking. There would be certain type of vegetable that she just wont consume anymore just because she dont like the taste. So, it can be quite tricky to ensure she get all the nutrients she need.

Watch the video below and I beleived many of parents out there could totaly relate to this.

My worries are wipe away when I was introduced to Seven Seas products! Phewwwww….

Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!

I have been capturing my journey on youtube and also couple of humble tips. So recently I was kidnaped by my husband for unplanned trip to Ipoh and we also end up snokelling in Pulau Pangkor. It is totally unplanned and I am forever grateful for having such a wonderful travelling partner like my hubby.

This time around we didnt bring our baby Sofea. It was just us. Like the old days. I remembered the early days when we were just married, we have been hopping on a road trip quite frequent. Most of the trip revolved around food. Ya, my husband and I appreciate good food and good scenery. Okay lah.. to be blunt he likes food and I like scenery. So, going for a road trip and travelling satisfy both of our cravings.

I will try to seat down and write about our trip in the near future. But incase you are curious, do check out the vlog we did. Since you are at it, dont forget to subsribe as we will bring you along with us towards more adventure. Hopefully, with Allah’s will, we get to go for more trip together till we are old granpa and gramma. Looking forward to that.

Alright, I hope you like the video and do stay tune for the post k?
