Receiving gifts is definitely not my primary love language. In fact, I’m not big on gifts unless they really have a lot of meaning. I’m against the idea of push presents because I think child rearing (birthing included) is a joint effort and I don’t want my husband to think that he can shirk any… Continue reading Gifts that give back
“Look at who you are, and what are your powers, what you can do to make a difference” Some of my favorite places are the Amazon Flooded Forest (I love the music to!) at River Safari Singapore, and the Open Ocean Gallery at the RWS S.E.A. Aquarium. Without a doubt, the views are absolutely stunning,… Continue reading The Ocean
We had the pleasure of being invited to attend a Community Chest gala dinner, a first for me. The evening started off with a group of children with special abilities (I prefer that to “disabilities”), dubbed the Super Trouper Choir, singing their rendition of Kermit’s 1979 hit The Rainbow Connection. You can see a news… Continue reading Giving
What a memorable August. We’ve celebrated national day, three birthdays, planned a staycation and two holidays in November (!), and as you read this we’re on a long-ish holiday with only Mittens – a first for us. I’ve taken on some work, which has been interesting and challenging, and not as if I don’t already… Continue reading Adieu, August!
I have never had to go on a diet. Yes, you heard that right – never ever ever! In primary school I was teased (just a little) as underweight, and I had to take that horrible medicine for worms just in case I really did have worms. My mother was a little insulted by that… Continue reading The passage of life

Some posts are hilarious, others informative, many are inspiring, and… Continue reading Giveaway: Style Essence Makeover!
Baby Scout turned 2 months yesterday, and I know it’s only been 2 months, but I’ve been lamenting my post-baby body since…oh almost 5 years ago. Only it gets worse after each baby, and I’m now convinced that my feet, rib cage, and hips have no hope of returning to its pre-babies form. I often… Continue reading Before and not-so-great After.
It’s coming to two weeks of the confinement month – how time flies! In response to my last post about the birth story of Scout, I was most amused that some mummies found it unusual for me to drive myself to the hospital. I know all the books say, have someone drive YOU to the… Continue reading Driving Miss Daisy (and what to pack for going there)
Both my boys arrived exactly 9 days before EDD, so I was well working toward that timeline. But the days came and went, and there was no news of her. My gynae went on leave, and I developed a cough so I was more than happy to have her take her time. After all, it’s… Continue reading Waiting for the stork to arrive
