With just one day to go before the New Year, I’m excited. The last 12 months have passed by far too quickly, but I think I’ve made the most of them. I don’t remember ever being bored, I love what I’m doing, and I am looking forward to what 2012 will bring. There have been [...]
Some time ago, I wrote about how I was (and still am) on this quest to figure out what my dreams are and what I want. It was liberating and exciting, and it’s something I’m glad I did. That said, I’m now learning that maybe not all my dreams are achievable, and that’s okay.
Last year, I did one of the scariest things I’d done so far with Kaylin – Y and I took her on an eight-hour flight to Melbourne. She cried a couple of times on the way there, and more than a few times on the way back, but we survived. And nobody shot us dirty [...]
This is Kaylin at her first kids’ pool party. It’s her second time in a swimming pool, not that she did any swimming at all. In fact, as you can tell, her hair is completely dry. She never went deeper than knee-high water, and she couldn’t be bothered trying.
This photo was taken on [...]
There’s something about my in-laws’ garden (or maybe it’s the people who live in the house) that gives off a very protective, safe vibe. This is the second time we’ve found a litter of kittens, much to Kakak and Kaylin’s delight.
The first time, we found two kittens that their mother eventually abandoned when [...]
One of my favourite tracks from The Kitchen Musical, which I’ve been trying to catch every week. Also, this was kind of our theme song for a while when my sister and I were living together in Melbourne.
Friends tell me that watching a show in non-HD (what’s the correct term for that?) doesn’t [...]
I found out Kaylin could feed herself quite by accident. I was at a wedding with her, the daddy had another wedding to attend so he wasn’t there, she was really hungry, and I was, um, busy talking to people who had come over to our table to say hello.
Her food was right [...]
Like so many people, I found out about Steve Jobs’ passing on my iPhone. I was in Changi Airport, about to have breakfast, on my second day trip to Singapore.
Like so many people, I read the tributes, tweeted my thoughts, and watched his Stanford commencement speech from 2005. Steve said many inspiring things, but [...]
The family took a trip to Pavilion a couple of weeks back (I say “trip” because we ran a few other errands and it became quite the excursion, plus I was exhausted by the end of it) and while the men did some shopping, I finally did two things I’ve always meant to do but [...]
My biggest peeve about KL is that there’s no beach. I love the beach and I haven’t been in the ocean for far, far too long. I miss the smell of the sea, the splashing of waves as I walk along the water’s edge, and I miss scuba diving although that’s quite a different [...]
