Qingwen is the best part of ChinesePod I think. :)

I was just thinking about 

1. 以 which has 3 uses (用,來,因為)if you could help explaining that

2. 而 which also has 3 uses (而且,所以,可是)

And chinese etymology is always very interesting!

Thank you,

I never did the yuezi thing, people always asked me if I wasn't doing it, but they kinda understood that I don't since "we foreigners don't have that custom". But I think next time, I am gonna order yuezi food delivery to my own house, I loooove the food, if someone can eat chicken soup for a month - it's me!

But one thing confuses me, if you just had your baby, for many your first and only baby. Why don't you, especially as a mother, want to spend time with your baby? getting to know him or her? Creating a BOND? My thoughts is get that ass out of bed, dress in something else than a pyjama, go outisde for a walk with your baby so both of you get some fresh air! (imagine just staying inside for a month? and some friends of ours didn't leave the house for 4 months!). No wonder you're tired! A helper could be good yes, but not to take care of the child, that is your child to love and protect, let the helper do the cooking, cleaning and washing instead. :)

oh, and I loved the 生化湯 as well. Good stuff. I also use it during the menstrual periods and it really works, that is something that should be introduced in western countries. That and the food.

Instead of 電飯煲 you can also say 電鍋.

Is the word 起司 only used in Taiwan? I haven't heard 奶酪 before.

(I was gonna make a healthy salmon pie with fresh salad for dinner - but now I got hungry for pizza!)
