date: Monday, March 23, 2015
time : 5:45 PM
Couldn't help but well up with tear watching PM Lee's live speech.
Today is a somber day as Singaporeans grief the passing of our great founding father whom spend his whole life fought so hard building Singapore from a mudflat swamp to a metropolis skyscrapers and held it so dearly all his life.
Though I may disagree with some of the policies and sys that have implemented but what I cannot deny is Singapore will not be what we are today without him. What Singapore is today carries marks of his effort and contribution.
Thank you so much for everything. Your legacy will always be remembered, and may the ruling party continue rule Singapore in the same spirit as you did. As for our part… is to craft our children and children’s children to contribute to this city and better future.
That's how he wants us to remember him….

title: “A perfect marriage is just two imperfect people who refuse to give up on each other!”
date: Tuesday, March 10, 2015
time : 9:45 AM
always a reminder....
that's how we last......
Don’t be jealous of somebody else’s Marriage; invest in your own! If the Grass looks Greener on the other side, you need to stay home and water your own grass.
Sometime we are no big enough to hold the blessing,
but that doesn't mean we should throw away the blessing.
If you want to be married, you have to be committed to marriage,
you have to believe in marriage, be devoted to it.
Someone once said, “Being in love means never having to say you’re sorry.” Whoever said that is probably divorced! The Truth is that husbands and wives must be quick to forgive and to humbly seek forgiveness from each other. “I Love You,” “I’m Sorry” & “I forgive you.” should be said often.
Don’t complain about your Spouse’s flaws…they are the very reasons why he/she didn’t find a spouse better than you!
Husbands and Wives must love each other regardless of their imperfections. Loving your spouse does’t mean that you approve of everything that they do, but it does mean that your commitment to them is bigger than all of their flaws.
Husbands and Wives must love and accept each other at all times in all circumstances. You must be able to say to your spouse, “In good times, I will celebrate with you. In hard times, I’ll cry with you. In uncertain times, I will hold you. In all times, now and forever, I’ll be by your side, no matter what!”
When you make your marriage vows on your Wedding Day, you didn’t use words like “Maybe” or “Unless”. Marriage never works if we’re thinking of an Exit Strategy. “Til Death do us Part” is the best and only way.
If you’re willing to leave your spouse for another person, in terms of your Character, it’s not much different than taking your children to an orphanage and trading them in for other kids whom you find more attractive or polite than your own kids.
"Many people wonder, 'Did I marry the right person?' But that's the wrong question. The key to succeeding in marriage is not finding the right person; it's learning to love the person you found. Love is not a mystery. Just as there are physical laws of the universe -- like gravity, which governs flight -- there are also relationship laws that, depending on your behavior, dictate the outcome of your marriage. You don't have to be 'lucky in love.' It's not luck; it's choice."
Don't share your marital woes with friends who is divorced - those friends may suggest divorce because they are divorced themselves and want to validate their choice. They will talk you into divorce so women often make bad decision based on the advice of those friends. Also one problem with confiding in friends about your marital problem is that you often give them a very one-sided account of the situation -- and thus get a skewed response.
Don’t focus on improving your Marriage…Focus on improving Yourself, serving your Spouse and growing daily in your relationship with God and your marriage will start improving on its own!

title: The "Lil Wet Brush" review
date: Wednesday, January 28, 2015
time : 7:49 PM
as I really hate it ESP after shampoo my hairs, I will get those giant tangled knots after coming out of the shower.
This is most girls’ problems right!
I have hair almost down to my waist and it is thick n' wavy, so it is badly and easily tangled, I always shed ridiculous amounts of hairs whenever I comb my hairs with other brushes/ even big wide tooth combs.
Not only that, it hurts my scalp
Same for both my daughters, whose hair is long, thick and with many damaged strands from all the pulling they got from other combs - their hair get tangles and break easily. They have a very tender scalp and so brushing or combing her hair isn’t my favorite thing to do, they will be whining about getting their hair tugged on when they have a tangle and many times they cries when my helper/I comb their hair, even though we try to be really gentle.
And so this brush has been a god-sent hair-saver for my daughters and me.
I only started to comb my hair daily after my BFF, Valerie, gifted this “Lil Wet Brush” to me a few months back to try. She got it from one of the beauty shop near her place.
I must said this squirt size “Lil Wet Brush” is so freaky amazing n' awesome that I quickly got my bff to help me buy again and also get few more so I can gift it to my BFFs to try
and almost all of their feedback were very good!!
Ever since then, it makes the combing of my girls' hair a breeze, no more of their screaming of pain.
This Wet Brush does not pull/tug at my hair, damage my strands and shed lot of hairs the way other brushes do, yet the bristles are able to detangle any knot on my entire hairs with EASE, from root to tip.
The bristles aren't stubborn and firm! It has the, thin, strong and very brilliance INTELLIFLEXibility of the bristles - flexible on one stroke and firm on the next, that doesn't pull/tug and yet it can run smoothly through the hair and detangles virtually pain free with its softips.
Ours hair won't shed and break as much!!!
I’m also now able to brush my daughters’ hair relatively quickly and painlessly. It was so gentle on the hair and scalp and makes the combing and detangling the hair knots really a breeze. No pulling and it just went thought the hair, getting rid of the knots very quickly.
- For all types of hairs: great for wet hair right out of the shower or dry, thick or thin, curly or straight; the tangles come out easily
- Boasting less damage and pain-free combing than other combs/brushes
- Very handy and portable, great for keeping one in the bag
- Suitable for wigs and extensions also.
- It has SofTips, which are twice dipped, ultra soft and hence to be extra gentle, ideal for sensitive scalps.
So this is even so much better than the “Hair Bean” brush that I tried before, really can’t fight with this. Valerie actually bought a Regular size one for me too. But that is not as good as this Squirt size which we love most.
We all LOVE the Lil Wet Brush!
I truly feel that this is a must-have product for all women and mother whose daughter with a hair length.
And no more troubling of my friend to help me get this Wet Brush.
Cause just last week, I saw that they were selling in Watsons now, and I were so happily bought another 4 right off the rack (one for myself in my daily bag, one for placing at my in-law house when we stay overnight and another 2 to keep).
It comes in different material and pretty colors like pink, purple, yellow, green is just a bonus.
cause... promo! promo…. selling 2 at the price of $16.35

title: Natural Skincare Regimen - Oil Cleansing Method
date: Sunday, January 25, 2015
time : 10:48 PM
I still receive coming email & msg for this.
Really really sorry for the long wait for those who had emailed me about your interest to join in my next order to share on the shipping cost for the order of this Natural Unrefined Cold-pressed Avocado Oil.
This bottle of Avocado Oil really last me a long way...so that's why - but wait no more, cause I'm gonna place order to try Castor oil from GOW, for use as Deep Cleansing with this - using Oil Cleansing Method to deep cleanse my pores to help clear my really stubborn closed comedones which have been there for years.
I have been using this Avocado Oil as a night anti-aging moisturizer to balance the production of skin's natural oil secretion, hence this also do very well to prevent acnes too.
A month ago, my skin goes a little hormone-crazy again, overproduction of sebum (I got to watch my diet and lifestyle again), but this time unlike the past, I got almost ZERO breakouts from it, but quite a number of new whiteheads appeared. Believed is the help of avocado oil, it doesn't turn that horribly into acnes.
For the fact: Oil dissolves oil.
So 2 weeks ago, I decided to try on OCM - basic cleansing using avocado oil. And the result amazed me again, those whiteheads got smaller and smaller then gone.
The Basic Cleansing OCM protocol I followed....
I still have those really old stubborn closed comedones though, that's why I'm tempted to try OCM - deep cleansing now.
So friends here who had emailed me to join my order, I will reply your email tomorrow, so do check your mail and reply me with your order. Let me know if you don't receive my reply by Wednesday yay ;)
Ps. What works for me, may not work for you. There are many reviews and info around. Do read up more about it before decide whether to give it a try.
title: Quick update: Coping with homework stress and busy schedule
date: Monday, January 19, 2015
time : 5:16 PM
I really really wanna update this space more often like the past
but even the spare time I have, is not enough!
So here, a quick one again...
Ever since Aisleyne was in Primary 1, I need to spend even more time than usual on their schoolwork. Most of the time at home; after work and on a weekend, before n' after our usual family's weekend activities, I need to be seated in with the kids for long hours coaching their schoolwork.
Getting burned out all days!
I know beginning is always the hardest and understand that schoolwork is often the most difficult part of the child’s busy schedule.
I hope as it goes, everything will turn out to be better.
For now, Aisleyne is really struggled with a writing disability, she requires a close guidance and monitoring which made the work and the amount of time required feel unending at times - both to her and to me.
I know children are all different in how they feel about and approach homework and I can’t possibly coped teaching 2 of my kids at a time especially during weekdays (with just that 1 or 2 hours for so many homework to guide) after back from work, so husband got to step in and took on the responsibility in helping with our elder girl, Amabel for her subjects.
It helped the routine become more consistent and effective for our girls.
.... that has always been me, strict and firm in whatever
And all the while, Hus has been taking the responsibility in teaching Amabel for her Maths since Primary 1 because she is very weak in Maths! I don’t know why and no matter how I explained to her, she just doesn’t get it.
I was frustrated; losing my cool and when I’m….Amabel got frightened and stressed out. This is likely not going to help her get the work done and learned, Hus is definitely much more patience than me and hence the better person to take on the responsibilities “teaching” her. But often, I still need to step in to monitor, teach and get her to be more discipline and learn for her Maths.
But one thing that is great about Amabel is that she is a self-motivated child, who came home, bathes, has her meal, sat down and dug into their homework. When we are back and for their homework time, we just need to check and teach her on those difficult one.
It is really a struggle for Aisleyne because she’s studying afternoon session, back home bathe, dinner and has to start doing her homework already. So if her sister finishes her homework more quickly, I have to get her to be respectful of her sister by doing non-disruptive activities quietly.
— but well even with this division of labor with Hus, we still had to make adjustments to our schedules, our lives and our expectations to make sure our kids turned it in on time.
We also have to manage and plan our time really well even on a weekend now.
@Jurong East Big Box
Now our Saturday meetup time with friends is always late afternoon but Amabel will be engaged in tuition.
just me and Aisleyne on the past Saturday, on the way to meet Meiqi, Sereen and their boys
So I need to make up for her on a Sunday where I will plan something for kids again and keep them away from books for hours to relax and reward them with fun activities with their friends and cousin.
@ East Coast Park with cousin and sis-in-law
psst...i hope I have the time to blog on this soon too
HOMEwork is really a chore for both the child and parent.
I thought both girls are now bigger, required less care but nope! In fact, I’m busier now when both are in primary school. Lol~
And to make the learning a breeze, I set a clear expectation around homework time and their responsibilities. I get them to know that I expected them to get the work done on time and to try their best, the best of their abilities.
They should take control and know that homework is another part of their daily responsibilities, and my responsibility is to guide them, make suggestion, support them through the challenging tasks, and teach them about personal responsibility only.
Same for checking their time-timetable daily and knowing what to pack for their own school bag for the next day. Aisleyne is still learning it now, since she’s just into her 3rd week in primary school. So far, she has adapted to primary school culture and her writing ability is slowly improving and able to write her words neatly and be responsible in her schoolwork and get thing done without throwing tantrum.
Have a little fun in between, adding in break time for kids and we took a vlog
lots of pics in my cameras and I hope I can be back soon again to blog about their first week of school.
