Goodbye April 2015

April was one hectic month, and I cannot be more glad that it is now officially over.



There was quite a bit of adjustments needed both at work and at home.

We started on our first IVF as we really really want to give J a sibling because we know it is sooner, rather than later that he will be asking for one. While things may be beyond his control, we want to at least tell him we are truly trying.

Embarking on IVF, also meant that I was a walking hormonal mess. I wasn't the nicest person to be around with, neither was I in the best state of mind to work. Yet, there were projects to be kicked off, visitors to entertain, and a PR event to organise in just 2 weeks. Yeah, when it rains, it certainly pours.

Then, the man had to start working shifts. There will be one day during each weekend where I will have to do this solo parenting gig. It is quite a change since I have been used to having Papa share the load of entertaining the kid.

To be honest, I very much preferred if this happened a year or 2 ago, when the kid does not talk as much as he does now. J seems to have suddenly found his voice, and can go on and on and on and on....I sometimes find myself exhausted just after an afternoon of answering his endless "whys".  So, rather than keep him at home, I rather find something for us to do out of home. That in itself can be quite a feat ,so I am (for once) glad that I am getting media invites to blogger events.

Enjoying our mother-son outtings on weekends. 

We have also started J on a " home reward project" where we will give him a sticker each day he goes without the pacifier. And by the time he collects enough stickers, we will get him a gift of his choice. So far, it isn't working very well which makes me worry if he will ever quit "pacifier-ing".

Promising us he will quit his pacifier - like real! 


With April behind us, I am definitely looking forward to my favourite month of the year!

J and myself will be having a joint birthday celebration in Taiwan, just 3 of us so I can't wait! Woohoo!

How's you 2015 been? It is sure getting better for us, and I hope it is the same for you too!

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?".
