BEEF & VEGE SOUP
Contributed by Jolin

1kg beef (Australian beef for soup)
1 chicken liver
2 carrots, halved
2 potatoes, halved
1 stalk celery, halved
1 small ginger, crushed slightly
1 bombay onion
2 bay leaves
Water approx 1.5L

1. Boil all the above in slow cooker for 5 hours.
2. Discard ginger and bay leaves. Blend the rest with the soup to make a smooth consistency. Don’t blend all the beef or else it will be too ‘heavy’ for the bb. Just use a quarter or less of the beef. The rest of the soup can be enjoyed by the family or your elder kids.

My office is going to set up a lactating room. Initially, it was just a plan to make it easier for one of the moms who is expressing milk to have a more conducive place to do her daily ritual.

However, things move and soon, it become a whole project to be undertaken by the company. We find an empty room, instal a sink, buy a fridge, get some nice sofa and place some beautiful paintings.

Then, we consulted the world breastfeeding advocate and they gave us the green light that it is now an official lactating room. We will be inviting a few doctors to give a talk and we are good to launch our first ever breastfeeding room.

Now all mothers can come to our office and express their milk. Now I am looking for some vinyl banners to promote the lactating room. I have looked around and hope to settle on a design soon.

It is quite funny that now mothers are coming to our office not to do business but to express milk. The moms actually can do their networking while they are expressing milk.
