Thank You Mr Lee

This morning, the first thing the man did was to turn on the telly and tuned into Channel News Asia. Something quite unlike him. It was like there was something we needed to know, only to realise that the greatest leader Singapore ever had has left us. I never took an interest in the country's political state of affairs. But being the history student I was, I am fully aware of the struggles this nation has gone through. Perhaps this is the very reason, I sometimes take the comfort and safety of our country for granted because I was born during a time when we were beginning to enjoy Mr Lee Kwan Yew's fruit of labour.  Reading tributes to Mr Lee that flooded social media today, I thought back to the time I lived overseas as a university student.

#sleeptraining #toddlerhood #growingup #parenting Sleep training in our household takes a different form. We were  (still are) more concerned of weaning J of co-sleeping. Maybe it is the weaning of both mother and son in this case. oh my sleeping child

<Part 1 of our Hokkaido Trip can be found here> Continuing with Day 2 of our 2014 Autumn trip, we arrived at Furano just in time for lunch. Other than being known as a great place for hot springs, Furano is also home to many flower farms, that makes this place so colourful throughout the year. Depending on the season, these farms will have fields of seasonal flowers, that looks absolutely lovely.
