As fate has it

Today, as I reflect upon the time I knew I was pregnant with J, through the period I have been a mother, there's one thing I am truly thankful for.

The presence of a special group of friends who made the journey so much easier just by being present, be it physically or virtually.  I appreciate that I can always just pop into our chat room on whatsapp to rant, to share, to complain or simply just to chat.

We were housemates and friends back in our uni days. We probably shared some really deep dark secrets, countless good times and many waking hours together.

After 3 years of living together, I drifted from the group while the other 2 ladies remained close friends. And when I thought the closeness we shared is probably going to be just a memory for me, God brought us back together with us having our kids all in the same year.

 Now, I will feel weird if I don't check in on them or don't hear that familar beep on my handphone for more than 3 days. They were the first friends I shared about my recent hospitalisation right after the BFF and the only people who I could be utterly honest with how I felt at that point.

I don't know how far this friendship will go, I certainly wish for it to last a long time. What I do know is fate brought us back together for a reason. That reason I believe is as simple as having the support group we all need, and I am thankful for that.

I do wish our children will get to grow to be good friends as well, and stay as a support group for one another as they go through the different stages in life. I think with the shrinking family size in the country, having friends are the immediate replacements for cousins. So here's wishing everlasting friendships to us and our kids


This post is dedicated to Jelly, Yammie and the BFF. All names have been changed to prevent any of the mentioned from running away because I spoke about them here.

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?".
