Reward Yourself with a Unique Mother’s Day Gift This Year!

Parenting is the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Hands down. There is no instruction manual to turn to, no foolproof way to any task, and no one-size-fits-all solution to any challenge. Talk about the mundane daily tasks, parenting has a million tedious aspects to it that are seemingly never-ending. You can never really grasp the entirety of this fact, even at just the basic physical level, until you’ve been at…

Thank You, Mr. Lee Kuan Yew – Singapore’s Founding Father

23 March 2015 will always be a day to remember as Singaporeans lost their first leader. Singapore’s founding father, Mr. Lee Kuan Yew, passed away peacefully at Singapore General Hospital at the age of 91. At 7am that morning, I tuned-in to Class 95 and I could sense that something has happened. I was still in a state of denial, hoping that it wasn’t true. Fear crept up on me…

I’m Glad You’re Safe

Anything can happen to anyone at any time, even if he or she is perfectly healthy and fine. Don’t be scared when you read this, but it’s true. Something just happened to us lately, and it made me realized that an ordinary and uneventful day is, in fact, a very happy one. The older you get, the more aware you are that life can change in a split second. You…

A Memorable Birthday Party at Swensen’s

The sun was shining especially early this morning. I pulled up the blinds and I could feel the gentle heat of the sun greeting me in a special way on this special day. It was Edison’s 6th birthday. I had a familiar feeling – the same feeling I always had on my birthday. The anxiety of gathering our friends and loved ones, the laughter around the table, the excitement in…

Edison’s 6th Birthday Party

For the past three years, we celebrated Little Edison’s birthday with family members in a restaurant. I also bought cakes, party packs and goodie bags to his kindergarten to have a small-scale celebration with his teachers and classmates. This year, I thought of doing something different. And something extra special. When I broached the subject of a birthday party, V’s response was “Aren’t we going to celebrate it the same…
