It’s that time of the year again when families will be on holiday break soon. Some will be on travel while some will just be home spending quality time with the whole family.

In my case, traveling or not, on holiday or ordinary days, these items are always kept ready in separate kits.


My youngest daughter who is now 5 y/o has been struggling from asthma attacks since she was 3 months old and Allerkid (Cetirizine) has been her companion in times like this. Included in the kit is Bioflu for kids  just in case. I still remember when I traveled abroad with my eldest before. That was back in 2007. We were at the airport when An Arab lady approached me if I had any paracetamol in my hand-carried bag because her daughter was nursing a high fever that time. Good thing that I always carry a kit like this in my bag, whether we are going for a long trip or not. I asked her though if any brand would do as I only had Unilab meds with me. Yup, we’ve been Unilab consumers since then.

Along with this kit, is a separate bag that contains her Nebulizer, Salbutamol Solution for nebulization and cool fever patches (these two are however kept in the fridge when not in use). Indeed, when you are a mother, you MUST be prepared at all times.


But of course, it doesn’t mean that I am a mother who extremely cares for my kids, that I will completely forget about what I also need. Of course not! I also keep a kit with me at all times, well-kept in my bag organizer. My most favorite Celeteque Dermoscience Hydration Gentle Exfoliating Facial Wash and Celeteque Dermoscience Advanced Anti-Aging Anti Wrinkle Facial Moisturizer SPF15. You can never be disappointed with these two. They just amazingly go together well!


How about you? Do we share the same bag contents?
