What I Hope to Try After Birth

I feel deprived. Mostly of food that I want to eat. Except, I have no appetite to eat. Thus, watching food and recipes online just makes me anxious for the upcoming birth. So that I can finally eat what I really want to try. Those deliciously healthy (I certainly hope […]

Not Enjoying The Pregnancy

For this time, I am not enjoying this pregnancy. The constant nausea is driving me crazy during my waking hours and the nights of tossing are torturous. If I were not working, I would sleep at home all day and feel less terrible. However, I am still nauseous and vomiting […]


Finally The 2nd Trimester

And so, I have finally reached the 2nd trimester. The first trimester had been very tiring and challenging. I had to work and vomit at the same time unless I was lying down. Lying down on the bed helped a lot than eating too many plums and my tooth ached. […]


I Wish I Can Work 6 Hours for a 5-Day Work Week

When I read somewhere that a Swedish company has completed a successful trial of letting the employees work only 6 hours on a 5-day work week, I was intrigued and jealous. Why can’t Singapore ever adopt that kind of mentality with an 8-hour pay? Because we work to mark attendance. […]


How a Toddler Got Everyone in a Frenzy

First Trip To Adventure Cove Waterpark

Went to Adventure Cove at Sentosa for the first time. Definitely crowded. Definitely tanned. Definitely going again when the toddler is older. Definitely the first time the toddler was in water taller than her. Definitely panicked when the toddler accidentally forgot and sat down on the step which will dunk […]


Never Too Early To Plan

Having changed my job recently, I realised that there are options that I can take provided I’m willing to take up the skills and the company is willing to let me learn. Knowing that Quan Yifeng has sent her daughter to an international school, I am now considering sending mine. […]

The Great Breastfeeding Debate

Since being a mother who would want to breastfeed as long as possible, milk formula is super expensive these days, I would prefer to breastfeed. SGD40 just for 900g of powder? The issue with breastfeeding is the mentality of sexualizing breastfeeding. For Singapore, I see mothers covering up or trying […]
