Before I had children, I didn’t enjoy noise that children made in restaurants, on the plane, and almost anywhere else. Now that I am a mother, and have (sort of) gotten used to the noise, I don’t get disturbed by noisy children. Instead, my attention will be to see if I can tell what the… Read More It is a good thing that the children are noisy.
BoiBoy used to sleep with me in our master bedroom, until we started our business and reached home late every night. He now sleeps in the children’s room with AhMa and GerGer. He misses me, he says often (such a lovely boy). Some days, he will call me while I’m at work to request that… Read More Cheeky Wake Up Call
The children are having their school holidays now. I conducted classes at home for the past weeks to keep the children occupied, so AhMa (and DeeDee, on his off-work days) could take a nap while the classes were in session. As Christmas draws near, I am be busier with business and on days I don’t… Read More Motherhood – Fun Race
[Sponsored Post] I am always dreaming up new ideas to coach GerGer and BoiBoy to be thinkers, and problem solvers. For the past few years, I have used my self-taught super duper time-consuming ways to teach them that crying over an issue might not be the best way out. I took opportunity of every incident… Read More Power Up! our children’s thinking with Eu Yan Sang
There is a header banner on my blog. It has our extended family in it. What?! You mean you have never noticed it? Oh well, it is my fault as I am equipped with self-trained cum quarter-schooled drawing and design skills. When I designed the banner, a few close friends helped gave comments on how… Read More A drawing of our extended family
At the start of 2013, I shared about how BoiBoy resisted school after the long “winter” (we have no winter being on the equator) school holidays. I also shared about how he refused to attend his Art Enrichment Class in his Kindergarten.

It was somewhere along my Parenting Learning Journey (in early 2013 – if my memory does not fail me), that I thought of a way to impart Anger Management to my children (GerGer & BoiBoy) and niece (BayBee). Young children get angry easily (well, many adults still do). In 2012 I blogged about teaching “Life… Read More Our Angry Monsters
Running a small business is time consuming. Well, “running” small family is much more time consuming. I missed blogging, and today I have squeezed time for a simple post on how my typical mornings pass by in a flash. I had a late night, so I stayed a little longer in bed this morning (this… Read More Business means work life integration
DeeDee and my hectic lifestyle has remained as hectic now that we are about 8 months from the opening of our shop. From 2nd Jan, I feel more stretched, having an additional task of coaching my children their homework from kindergarten. My boy’s lack of confidence in writing and thus reluctance makes me feel guilty… Read More I feel lost
I must say that having no expectations seems to give room for impromptu celebrations! DeeDee brought me to a small Chinese Restaurant for a meal to mark our 7th wedding anniversary. It was near where we stay so it didn’t take up much of the little time we had before we made way to our… Read More Impromptu Celebration !!!
