Random: what is your handy energy booster?

I always have some Ricola lozenges with me handy for that moment of energy boost, thirst, or an irritating throat. My favorite flavors include: mountain breeze and alpine fresh, both with more intense cooling. Elderberry is the non menthol flavor I like most and Original is always welcomed.

I was excited to see a new flavor being launched in the market recently. Have you tried Ricola's latest flavor - apple mint?

The apple was pretty good but I associated mint with cooling and was slightly disappointed when the mint was all but a hint.

The formulation also tasted different from the existing ones in that the candy dissolves at a faster rate.

I am not liking it as much as I would repeat purchase. But see, there was a promotion - buy 2 get another 1 free. So I ended up with 3 boxes of apple mint :S. Perhaps it would have been better to band the new flavor with some existing ones.

What sort of "energy booster" do you carry around?

How do you juggle it all :( ?

I just feel that I don't have enough time - for the husband and  much less for myself!

During the workday, I make sure I try to go home on time so I could spend a couple of hours with A, and put him to bed. Then it's time to have my last pump at about 9pm before I just want to  zone out and crash.  The boy wakes up at least 3 times ever since his last leap when he learnt how to stand. Additionally, he fell really ill for the first time (i.e. antibiotics).  Prior to that, he cries 1-2 times but easily soothed with pacifier or with some milk. Because of these frequent interrupted sleep, the man and I took turns to fall ill as well, and it is difficult to recover. I still have the head colds and occasionally coughing spells.

On weekends, our schedule revolves around family events, and then I try to plan so that A can try to get a nap or 2 as well as to plan our routes throughout the day so I would end up somewhere comfortable to pump when I needed to.  Often the nap part fails,…

OOOh, new flavour!

I have been eating Quest nutrition protein bars for years! I love the taste and they are less guilty than the real deal.  The flavours are pretty spot on and they are available at  I recently shared about this site as well.

I eat at least one of them a day to satisfy that sweet tooth. My favourites so far are the cinnamon roll and smores.  But I'm excited that a new flavour has been launched and can't wait for the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip flavour to arrive!
