I'm a mom #02 - Banished heels

With a 8kg baby, there is a need for a greater sense of balance while I scurry around with him as an arm candy.

With the same 8kg baby placed at an infant care, that also means I will need to rush from work everyday just to ensure he is picked up on time.

So, being in my favourite peep-toe pumps slows me down considerably, which also means I have switched to wearing more flats just to go about my mommy duties.

Most of you would know heels are one of my loves . In fact, I used to feel if I am not in heels, I am really not working. Strangely, strudding around in them gives me more confidence to go about my work.

Oh well! Some things just gotta give. But but but... that's not to say I absolutely don't wear them anymore. They are just banished to take a shelter under my desk. I have a strong feeling the collection there will be growing in time to come.

And the positive of all these is... i get to shop for more flatties... adding more shoes to my already large collection of shoes.

Shoes oh shoes! There are still things motherhood does not change! I love shoes!

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?".
