Bartley Residences Work-in-Progress: July 2014

I’ve been so busy that I’ve forgotten to update the work-in-progress of Bartley Residences for the last two months. I pass by the construction site every morning when I send our boy to school. When I see it every day, I don’t notice any major progress. But when I looked back at my April update, I can see the vast differences. That’s the beauty of documenting it on this blog.…

The June School Holiday is coming!

I’ve never been so excited about school holiday since I left school many many years ago. But this year since our boy started Primary 1, I feel the excitement about school holiday all over again. For the next one month, I don’t need to wake up at 5:30am. I don’t need to rush home to practice spelling and ting xie. I don’t need to panic over tests and assessments. I…

One and Only One

It’s 10pm now as I’m writing this post. I don’t know why I think about this topic again. It could be because someone told me straight to my face that I’m a selfish mother because I stopped at one. He further commented that if the Hubby and I leave this world one day, Edison will be all alone. That’s why I’m always hoping that Edison will find a good wife…

Bartley Residences Work-in-Progress: April 2014

The last two weeks were so hectic and tiring. The moment I got back from the March term break, I was swamped with works. One of our staffs is going on maternity leave (yes, it is four months now!), and we were so busy with handovers and delegation of responsibilities. Today, I dropped by the construction site and took some pictures. How time flies! It feels like just yesterday when…

Bartley Residences Work-in-Progress: March 2014

Sorry for the lack of update. Life has been busy. Just a short post today and I’ll be back next week (hopefully). Knowing that the March term break is around the corner really delights me to no end. I’m inspired by my friend CY to start blogging about the development of our new apartment. CY started blogging about the development of his new apartment since three years ago, and recently,…

Galloping Into the Year of Horse

Generally, I don’t consider myself as a superstitious person. I don’t believe that washing hair on the first day of Lunar New Year will wash away good luck, nor do I think that wearing red will bring good fortune. However, I do believe in Chinese New Year zodiac predictions. That’s something that I look forward to read every year to find out what my zodiac sign has in store for…

Hard to Let Go

Perhaps, the most significant change to me this year is waking up at this ungodly hour every weekday morning. Yes, it’s 5 plus in the morning. *yawn* I set my alarm at 5:45am, but somehow, my system has adjusted to the new routine faster than I’ve expected. I usually wake up 5 to 10 mins before the alarm buzzes off. I don’t want to get back to sleep again, otherwise…

The year that went by…

By Guest Blogger N.C.E Entering the new year of 2014, one inadvertently looks back to the past year to reminisce the significant events that unfolded. Arguably one of the most noteworthy is the crowning of the title ‘Word of the Year’ for ‘selfie’. Even the title seems like an understatement of the underlying social phenomenon that took place. The debate is still on and the jury is still out whether…
