No. I have not forgotten

Warning: This is yet another of my emo(tional) post. And, yes. It has something to do with "number 2".

No. I have not quite forgotten the ectopic pregnancy episode that happened exactly a year ago.

If you are about to tell me, please move on, then maybe you have not come close to having any fertility issues. Much less lost a child to miscarriage or other any other situations. Of course it is no fault of anyone's, so bear with me while I remember the one we lost.


While the pain has eased. The memory remains.  I have grieved, but I do not want to forget.
Today, as I recall the drama that happened a year back, I am reminded of how lucky I am to still be here.

My son (I always felt my life will be filled with a brood of boys), yes the little bean that was trying to hang onto his life gave me a second chance.

So, yes. I am truly thankful for what I have today. To still be given the opportunity to live, and love and do the things I want to.

While the 3 SO-IUI cycles after the ectopic episode ended with no success, I still believe God is waiting for the opportune time to bless our family with another little one.

I am also thankful for best friends. This cherubic bub, R is the son of a very dear friend  He and my little bean were supposed to be born a week apart. While little bean went to keep the Lord and his great-grandparents company, it seems like R has a really special place in J's heart. J loves R quite a bit I must say and rushes to cuddle, touch, admire R just very much like his own. It is like he knows that while his little bro did not come as expected, he still have friends like R. 

This picture warms my heart through and through. Certainly if God's willing, J will have a little brother (or sister) to hold the very same way he is holding R. 


Ok! After being all weepy writing this post, I am looking forward to a week away with the Man and the Boy in the autumn hues of Hokkaido. Two more sleeps! 

And... to my Little Bean. Hope you are having fun up there with Lolo Papang and Lola Mamang (my maternal, filipino grandparents). I am sure they are taking really good care of you. Once again, Mummy  and Papa loves you. More than you can ever imagine.

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?".
