About



Hi, my name is Shermeen. I am a Chinese-Filipino who's born and bred in Singapore. 

As a full time working mother (FTWM), I spend my days in the world of marketing, from vetting countless of articles to working on integrated marketing strategies for my employer.

When I shed my  corporate do, I am cleaner, laundress, teacher, cook, listener, nurse, counsellor and friend to my only son, J.

Together with the men of my life (hubby included), we explore activities to do as a family, both in Singapore and overseas, sharing our experiences on the blog.

Being in a highly demanding job, and without permanent help at home, I sometimes pride myself for being able to juggle my various roles as wife, mother, daughter and employee on a day to day basis and often share nuggets of advice to my readers (although I am really a wreak on most days). 

More recently, I opened up about infertility and our IVF journey. We hope to help those who finds infertility a stigma through my writing.

When it is dark and quiet at night, other than blogging, I keep myself busy with baking and jewellery making, My creations will sometimes show it’s head on my social media accounts. And if you are lucky, I will offer to make some of these pretty little things for 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?".
