At 2.5 years old


Hello there little man!

Papa often says how you have overtaken him as the love of Mummy's life, and I can understand why.

You have the qualities of mummy's dream guy. You are funny and say the darnest things that often gets me bending down in stitches.

While sometimes you get whiny just be because you don't get your way, I see that as you knowing what you want.


You are affectionate, and is not afraid to show it. I love how you lay your head on my flabby tummy and tell me you love me (almost every night), and that melts my heart through and through.

Your overflowing energy tires me out but it also reminds me how much more we can do to help you grow. To put that energy and enthusiasm into good use.

I often marvel at how much you have grown in just 2 years. Today, you are able to speak in full sentences, and articulate your rebuttals very clearly. You love to tell me about  your friends in school, about how they have been naughty and you haven't (which I know isn't always the case). 

You have recently started on your " thousand whys" which is sometimes irritating, yet it is so amazing how you take an interest in everything that happens around you. 

You are able to tell if anyone at home is feeling down, and readily offers your loving pat or smelly hugs as a form of comfort.

Without much effort from Papa and Mummy, you are already toilet trained in the day time. It will not be long before we can save on diapers. 

As you continue to find yourself, I will continue to be here to guide you so you will be the fine young man I envisage you to be....

At this point, there is one thing I ask of you.. and that is to "Quit that pacifier sucking habit!!!!" You know you don't need it. You even know it is embarressing to use it as you remove it when you see people watching you. So, isn't it time to just dump it?? That said, I know you will eventually tell me you don't want the "tutu" anymore. So I should really be patient, but please don't make me wait too long yah?

As always, Mummy loves you! So does Papa! Grow well, stay healthy and be the happy kid that you have always been!

Love, your Mar-Meee Boo (that's how you call me when you are feeling cheeky!)

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?".
