Walking many steps behind GerGer and BoiBoy, I smiled at the heartwarming sight of them so engrossed in their chit-chat. DeeDee and I have insisted on “no phone nor tablet games” rule for them since young, and I guess this is the fruit of your decision and persistence. They are not addicted to games when… Read More Siblings Chit Chat
Carbonara can be an easy meal for the whole family. I do not cook often. In fact, I have never prepared a proper meal for my family. In December 2017, I had the opportunity to cook a proper meal at the request of my children (GerGer and BoiBoy). It is Carbonara, at the request for… Read More Simple One Pan Bacon Carbonara for busy parents

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

“Ding Dong”. The children ran to the door. “I didn’t order anything recently” I whispered to myself. “MeeMee!” shouted GerGer as I walked from my room to the hall.
