Parenthood has a way of bringing the best and the worst out of you.
It is a journey much like a roller coaster ride… you can go up and down, sometimes without warning. And it is definitely not for the faint-hearted!
Having been in this ride for close to 11 years, I have had my fair share of triumph and failures, joy and tears.
In Singapore, many families with young children cannot do without a domestic helper. Even some families with Stay-At-Home-Mothers engage domestic helpers to help out with the kids and household chores.
Our eldest is turning eleven this year. In these past eleven years, we have had two domestic helpers – both lasted not more than six months each.
We live in a fast paced world where standing still and doing nothing seems like a sin.
Everything is moving fast. We push ourselves to the max, to do more, achieve more, work harder, stay up later, wake up earlier, walk faster, eat faster, socialise more, network more, make more money, buy more stuff.
But the more we do, the more we possess and consume, the less time we have to be ourselves and the more tired we become.

Not only do we need water for survival, the type and amount of water we drink daily affects us in more ways than we can imagine.
Although tap water in Singapore is potable, most of us still boil our water before drinking, to ensure that all bacteria are destroyed.
Valentine’s Day is a day of celebration with the person you love. Besides being a day for lovers, there are many who are simply celebrating it with their loved ones, friends and family.
Here are 10 Valentine’s Day crafts that you can make with your kids.
Kids are known to be active and full of boundless energy. What better place for them to expend their bountiful energy than a trampoline park?
There are about 4 trampoline parks in Singapore and we have visited two of them, the first one in December 2014 and the second in December 2015.
2015 passed by in a blur. Most days, I felt like I was putting out fires, running around like a headless chicken. Besides juggling the kids’ three different school hours and housework, I was teaching 5 days a week. In addition, I was writing in 3 different blogs. The year could only be summed up in one word – HURRY.
If your kids are like mine, who are fascinated with dinosaurs and deep sea creatures, they can find a perfect combination of both at the Science Centre’s Monsters of the Sea Exhibition.
