Home Alone....

Finally, alone at home... haven't had the luxury of having the peace and quiet of my home since i got married. Very often, Hwa will be around.... otherwise, on some weekends when I want to lei-pak and do nothing at all.... B brings friends home for a round of tile-shuffling. Yes... this is my house.... but what can i say or do... compromise and tolerance is often practiced under this roof.... as there is no such thing as "ownership" here. I can be a meanie.... but I have to spare a thought for the one who will be caught in between. Anyway... now that I am alone at home... just going to relax.... and enjoy before it turns dark...:)

Guess this is also a good time for me to blog about my recent bout of "depression". Changes are taking place in the office quite rapidly... from brand new opportunities ... to new allies... and also evolving personalities. However, none of this has made me any happier or more satisfied at work.

I would not dare say I have lots of experience... coz what is 4.5 years in the work force. But this 4.5 years has seen me tru 3 jobs. I do not deny that I love the people where I am now... very much in fact. But people do not change how you feel towards the organisation rite?

Assurance and encouragement were freely given... at least at my dept, and at least to me. But when changes are about to take place... opportunites seem to be given to everyone else. Reason being... "You are most suited here.... be patient and you will rise above the rest". Maybe in short... this means..... we do not want you anywhere else in the organisation. Stay here... (and maybe rot)?. Oversensitive? Maybe. Can't blame though, because when we put one and one together... you realise people say things for the sake of saying it. How can one rise above the rest when the rest are given new oppotunities that makes them more visible... aka. fast track to advancement. So that poor one is left with the conventional way of climbing the ladder. Maybe one should really consider telling those who speak thinking they can comfort..."Cut the crap... and dun give me that bullshit!"

I really hope I am wrong.

Decisions were made to stay on.... other opportunites were given up. Let's just wait and see for the time being.

Once in the 4.5 years.... feelings of being appreciated is far from satisfactory.

Yilan for kids - Taiwan Travelogue

Our recent trip to Taiwan brought us to Yilan. Although we initially worried that it will be boring for the boy as it is more of a "back to nature" part of Taiwan, we enjoyed ourselves very much, and wished we spent more time there. Surprisingly, Yilan packs more fun for the kid than expected.



Here's some places you can check out if you are going down that way and I will let the pictures do the talking! 

My thoughts on the Glenn Doman Learning Method

When I was invited to attend a baby learning seminar about the Glenn Doman Learning Method , I wasn't prepared to feel what I did after that.

There were fleeting thoughts in that 3 hours for me to leave my job to be at home with J.

I also had my heart swell with pride despite not having been the most conscientious mum in helping my son to learn. Yet the time he spent in school has helped him reach all his developmental and learning milestones.  

Fun for kids in the West of Singapore- Part 1

My family moved to the western part of Singapore when I was 3 years old. For as long as I can remember , I have lived here, and will likely continue to for an even longer time.


At different points, people have asked me what's there to do here in the west as it seems so far away. The common comments I hear from friends while in school were "you live in tuas ah....the industrial area? " Or... "which kampong is that?".
