Overpopulation

Anyone who has beem to Jurong Point lately will realise that the place is always packed with people.

So much so that moving around becomes a chore. I felt like the whole world was spinning when i walked through the mall. Sometimes, it is a wonder where all these people come from. And is there really so much things to see at Jurong Point.

If not for the fact that my mum stays at Jurong.... I would not have chosen to live here.

Sometimes, I even feel like my privacy has been invaded, and i refer to a particular incident this afternoon.

Hwa and I were queuing at the ezlink top-up machine @ Boon Lay MRT.

When it was our turn, a man, of a different nationality came up close behind. He started peering into our screen, earnestly looking at our transaction. I have no issues helping if he does not know how to use to the machine. We will be more than glad to explain. But for him to keep poking his head between us, and looking at us , even when Hwa was keying in his NETS pin number was plain rude! Everyone deserves some respect. And I think we locals should be given the due respect and privacy as much as we extend hospitality to the others.

Well... on another note, here's some of the work I did for my home... to usher in the year of the rat!

New picture frames to line my super long purple wall.


Pretty orchids to complement my Fortune Mao Mao




P/S: The battle agst the ANTs continues. I have tried all ways to get rid of them. But they still refuse to retreat.

MIL says is because the weather is turning cold. As much as i hate to believe that.... it does hold some truth. As I noticed after months of observation.. the ANTs do appear just before heavy downpour... or at times of the year (like now) where it becomes rather chilly. And... having followed their trail.... they all seem to come from out side the house, and not within.... (from the main door.... from the balcony etc.)

Sigh... guess... i have to stock up on ammunication (i.e baygon, ant baits ...) before the shops close for CNY.

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?".
