My real deal

Happy to laze in bed till past 9am today, and be able to lounge on my couch typing this entry.

What seemed like a never ending week, reinforced what keeps me going at work, and I am glad to realise it did not change very much over the years.

Boss was away Siem Reaping, and all @ work thought we would have an easier work week. Unfortunately, tasks were flown over at lightning speed which strangely gave me an adrenalin rush. Covering another colleague's work which I have absolutely no clue how to go about it and the fact that the task had to be done in a quarter of the usual time required, further put my mind in a spiral. It's been a long time since i camped in the office till almost 10 every night, was exhuasted, yet felt very very satisfied.

A few years back when I played The Real Deal cards, my deal breaker was "Learning". This means if I find that I am not learning anything new, I will start getting dis-engaged. That was what happened over the past months. I was unhappy and started thinking if there's anything else I could do and i begin to wonder if my deal breaker remained the same. I recalled my relunctance to leave Aviva a year back as i knew new opportunities were constantly thrown at me to help better myself. Hence, with the challenges I faced in the past week, it reinforced that constant "learning" is still what keeps me going. That's going to help me figure my way around keeping myself satisfied with my current job.

Let's see how it all pens out from now....

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?".
