Mama misbehaves

Today is the younger boy’s graduation day from kindergarten. He was sent to school as the family is going through transition. (Hint: He’s going to be a Kor Kor soon for the first time! I’ll be bias, he’ll always be my adorable cutie pie no matter what.) Traditional school does not suit him, there is way too much emphasis on academics, but we can’t afford anything else. Yesterday he returned home from a full dressed rehearsal and his cute little bow tie which his Aunt help us buy from Jakarta, was missing from the bag. I panicked because I had…

This is a short post about a long journey, and one which explains my disappearance from the blogosphere for the past couple of months. Well… it all started with sinus. I don’t usually have sinus and it is pretty annoying when the nose is constantly blocked for no apparent reason. The next thing I knew I am feeling queasy over certain food when suddenly I threw up one day during lunch. Yep… you guessed it, its a bun in the oven! 5 pregnancies and 3rd kid on the way. Does life offers trials? Yes, in most cases. But for me,…

Our boys don’t sleep in air-conditioned rooms. We use the air-conditioner to cool the room and then switch it off after two hours. We believe it is better when we keep the windows open, fresh air is best. We’ve had several fans throughout the years. The traditional ones we had were the standing fans with blades that requires a wipe down once every week or so to keep it dust-free.

What inspires our children?

I remembered as a child, the first person that left a deep impression on me professionally was a lady who emceed at a wedding. At 7 years old, my parents told me that lady was in public relations. I dreamt of becoming a public relations person one day & 16 years later, I did. After I got married and gave birth, I met one of Singapore’s well-loved lactation consultant. Her passion, expertise and professionalism left an indelible mark on me. She was a live wire. An inspiration to many many mums. As I go about educating my own children, I…
