A super delayed V-day post

V-day to me holds special meaning as it marks the 5th year since Hwa and me started out pak-toring. Cheesy and cliche as it sounds.... but years back.... it was probably the only time of the year that he plucked enuff courage to send me home from work.... haha! Those were the days.

Looking back over the 5 years, though this day meant something to us, i do not recall us celebrating V-day at all. So this year wasn't going to be any different. Moreover, Hwa has been really tied up at work, training the newbies.... and it seems like his life isn't very easy as a trainer. So.... if I even get to have dinner with him would be a huge plus.

Well.... anyway.... we did. He made sure he left early, to have din din with me. Appreciated that effort.

As for me.... i had no clue what to get for him.... and we are not big on buying gifts for each other, esp since i already got him a mont blanc wallet late last year.

So,.. decided to get something simple for the fun of it. Prior to V-day.... i left little gifts on his pillow.... to surprsie him... and make his day...

It started with a battery operated toothbrush since he hates brushing his teeth..... haha!

Then.... it was a cute happy house hippo... which we affectionately call Hee-Poo. Well.... Hwa was called hippo when he was in primary school because of his size then..... (u can guess how "huge" he was!) end off.... what else can touch someone's heart.... but a self written card....:)

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?".
