March 2020 was a time before the circuit breaker began.For us, it was a month filled with trips to the playground, outdoor activities, family outings, gatherings, visiting new places, taking walks in the park, dining out as a family and more. Yup, all that sounded very usual, actually. That was, until we were halfway through the month and started to understand that as much as we wanted to, it was tough and in fact, irresponsible on our part if we…

It feels weird to be writing about our February happenings while we are in the the circuit breaker period. But then again, I guess reminiscing the happy moments helps to keep us positive and hopeful that things will return to normal so we can resume our lifestyles very soon.While we do our part to stay home during this crucial period – please, please, please don’t go out if you don’t have to, okay? – we also like to look back…

It’s been hard finding time to pen down my thoughts since 2020 got off to a rather crazy start. It doesn’t necessarily mean in a bad way and I think we are still feeling positive and hopeful for the year, but it does mean we have been so busy spring cleaning, celebrating CNY, getting the kids settled in their new school year, getting accustomed to waking up before sunrise, finding our beat and fine-tuning our routines, gathering with family and…

The year end has always been a busy period for me because of the kids’ birthdays, school holidays, family vacations, hosting parties, BBQs and family gatherings, getting ready for the new school year and so on. Frankly speaking, I haven’t even turned on this laptop much in the past six weeks because I just didn’t have the time or energy and even when I did, I chose to spend them on the kids and cherish the time that we have…

October was the month of year end exams for us. The P4 girl had her SA2 exams which make up 80% of her final score and the P1 girl, though didn’t have exams per se, still had quite a number of tests and topical reviews during this period. I am not the mum who believes that academic achievements are not important. No matter how the educational system keeps on changing, my constant wish is for my kids to try their…

May was a month filled with surprises. Yup, I can’t say the surprise was for me since I was the one behind most, if not all, of them but it did feel good seeing my plans come to fruition and the joyful faces around me. Those smiles just make the effort feel so worth it, you know what I mean?Well, I also can’t say there were no hiccups along the way because sometimes the kids would take things for granted…

As much as I love April since it is the month I was born and wedded in, I have to say that this past month has been a trying one for me. It was one that saw me in tears, saw me frustrated, saw me lose my cool, saw me blow my top, saw me become someone I didn’t want to be and saw me at my worst. I can blame many things for all of this you know, let’s…

I love being with my kids a lot. I do mean a lot, to the point that some friends tell me I need to learn to let go and get away from them once in a while, that the hubby and I should go on a couple trip and leave the kids behind, that I might be too obsessed with this stay-at-home mum job that I end up forgetting about myself. Maybe, just maybe, there is some truth in it.…

I don’t like how fast time flies sometimes. Yup, frankly speaking, I have even wished that I had the power to rewind time or just make it stand still. So that I can enjoy the present a little longer and *lump in throat* my kids stay young a little longer. Obviously, I do know that it’s impossible but knowing it and accepting it can be two different things, right? Over the years, it’s taken me a while but I do…
