I was snooping around Facebook one day and I came across a conversation between 2 friends who were discussing about new places to explore in Singapore. So kaypoh hor? One of them mentioned Glee Kitchen (not to be mistaken with a hit TV show of a smilar name. GL-uten frEE. Geddit? Geddit?) a gluten free place situated […]


What’s in your hospital bag?

February 20th, 2014 / / categories: family, pregnancy /

Less than 2 weeks to my EDD and my hospital bag is finally packed! Phew! I tried to do some research online on what folks normally pack for a 2 to 3 days stay at the hospital and the lists are almost all the same. Some more detailed than others but the essential items are […]


Child Label: Review and Giveaway

Review For parents of school going kids, one of the 1st few things you do before you pack your child’s school bag is to label everything. Back when I was a kid, my dad would use the permanent marker and write my name and class details on everything and everywhere. He left nothing unmarked, even […]

I originally had no intention to write a Valentine’s Day post because I’m really very unromantic and PDA aka Public Display of Affection is not my thing. So please note that this is not a romantic post. Think of it as a Public Service Announcement for the Clueless. Today is Valentine’s Day and Eastern Valentine’s […]

The cashcard In-Vehicle Unit seems like a mile away from your steering wheel. Your belly starts to steer the wheel for you.* You can no longer see the front of your car when you drive up a multi storey carpark. You pray for big open parking lots because you cannot weave through cars like Christy Cheung. […]

Let’s go… to Chinatown!

January 30th, 2014 / / categories: family, family activities, festivals /

What’s a Chinese New Year celebration without a trip (or two) to Chinatown? We don’t necessarily go to buy new year goodies but mostly to join the hustle and bustle of the activities and ok, maybe buy some unnecessary fattening snacks and knick knacks we don’t need. Please lah, it is impossible not to get […]

Review Most of us who have little boys will agree that it is very difficult to find decent, stylish clothes for them that are also affordable in Singapore. This is especially tough for ages between 5 to 7 years old who are no longer babies but not quite big boys either. What you normally see […]
