Wistful & Romantic

It’s the newest thing that you publish on Instastory – the Spotify “Your 2021 in review”! It’s always fun to look at an overview of the year, and guess what, this year I have been “wistful” and “romantic”. So… I didn’t know what “wistful” means and had to check the dictionary. Oh, it means toContinue reading “Wistful & Romantic”

Ways to save money this Christmas

Christmas is my favourite time of year – winding down that busy year, meeting up with friends, exchanging presents… it’s also the time of the year that I spend so much on gifts, decorations and Christmas food! Before you continue reading this article, I want to reiterate that you don’t actually have a “net profit”Continue reading “Ways to save money this Christmas”

Childhood

Recently while talking to my sister I found out that we had totally different perspectives of our childhood. Perhaps for her, it’s the “middle-child” syndrome (the neglected one?!), but my childhood was kind of totally different from my memory. To her, we were somewhat “deprived” (too strong a word to use in this case) ofContinue reading “Childhood”

VTL – Singapore to South Korea (Seoul)

Ever since I posted my first instastory that I have arrived in Seoul on 17 November, I have been bombarded with many messages on VTL (Vaccinated Travel Lanes) and PCR tests – even though some of my friends are not visiting Seoul but other countries?

Taking a breather at Lower Seletar Reservoir Park

Simply put, it’s the scenic route from Yio Chu Kang to Khatib not to be confused with Upper Seletar Reservoir that is nearer to Mandai. It’s not that near to Khatib MRT so if you’re goingContinue reading “Taking a breather at Lower Seletar Reservoir Park”

What playing competitive sports taught me

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.” Watching competitive sports always spurs something in me. Once upon a time I actually thought that it was a waste of time playing any sport recreationally. Why put in so much effort in something to doContinue reading “What playing competitive sports taught me”

What I thought life would be

Looking at the On This Day pictures brought back many memories. 13 years ago I was hanging out with the gang at Dempsey. 11 years ago I was spending summer in Hong Kong. 10 years ago I was lamenting on how I had no more friends in school since everyone had graduated the past semester.Continue reading “What I thought life would be”

A letter to my kiddos, probably the first of many

Dear M&M, Year 2020 is revealing itself to be a chaotic year. When you ‘google’ (hopefully still a term for ‘search’) this year, you will see lots of negative news like the worldwide pandemic called COVID-19, the sudden passing of many well-known people, and it has also been a personal struggle for your mommy meContinue reading “A letter to my kiddos, probably the first of many”
