To-do List For The Coming Months

With the craziness behind us... the hfmd episode x2, the house move and the launch of a major campaign at work, i am attempting to relive new year by making some "resolutions". Or rather to make a list of what I want to achieve in the next few months.

 1) Focus on the blog 
This space has been my enclave for about 7 years now. Those who have been faithfully following me will realise that this space used to be a place for my meaningless mumblings about daily grouses more than anything else. This has slowly evolved to me talking more about mum things and other experiences I wanna share.

 So, I have planned something for this space to make it more meaningful for my readers as I believe changes can only be for the better yah? Well... so do stay tuned.

 2) Taking J out more often
As we got busy with renovation planning and house moving, we deprived J of many weekends of time outside of the house. There are many places I want to bring the little one such as the zoo, the beach and the many interesting parks and so I am going to make the conscious effort to ensure that happens.

3) Be Healthy, Stay Happy & Take It Easy
At a recent medical examination, my blood pressure indicated that I might have hypertension. While it is not entirely unexpected as I am at risk of hereditary hypertension, what I did not expect was to get it so soon. I have always been careful with what I eat , especially so when I was pregnant. Hence, I never came close to having high blood pressure during gestation. At this point,  I suspect it could be the mounting pressures at work , plus needing to deal with being a mother. This raises the alarm bells for me, and I am determined to make sure the condition improves. It could also be a reminder to me that I should perhaps not take on too much on my shoulders.

4) UrbanNook
Yes. Time to take UrbanNook out of cold storage and start taking orders again. I will go slow this time, picking up only what I can comfortably manage while juggling work, being a mum and all my other ECAs.

5) Plan for a family holiday
I am dying to get out for a wee bit. Even if it is just a getaway to Malaysia would be fantastic. Getting out for a break can do a lot of good for relationships and of course my health!

6) Be Positive
Very often we find ourselves getting frustrated with situations we face daily, whether it is with the boss, or with people in the family. Whatever the reasons are for bringing our moods down, it is always important to stay positive and believe that things will get better.

With that, how many of you have stopped to take stock on your resolution since we are approaching mid-year? Do share if you are checking back on your resolutions and making sure you are on track. Wold love to hear from you!

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?".
