Adik Adam, suffers from Cradle Cap. A common baby skin problem, where the top of the head looks like dandruffy (new made-up word). At the edge of his hair line, there are some small bumps and redness.
Doctor gave him a Cradle Cap medicated shampoo and an instruction to put olive oil on his head. It should work as sort of a moisturizer for the skin.
Caution : We tried virgin olive oil, it works. Then gatal tangan, change to Minyak Kepala Dara. It causes redness and in the end, luka-luka di kepala. So, if the oil that you use causes the skin to be more reddish or bumpier, stop from using it! Change to other natural oil. Natural is the main keyword here. Asal jangan minyak cili, dah la. :P

The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.
- T.A. Conrad
To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
