Praying for a baby

This is a typical sight whenever we make the occasional trip to temples to pray for the new year. He would always demand for his own set of joss sticks and mimic whatever we do because he felt that since everybody was doing it, so should he. My mother-in-law has a small modest altar at […]

You know you are about to pop when…

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… The Toa Payoh Dragon Playground!

Built in 1979, the Toa Payoh Dragon Playground was one of the most iconic fixtures in the established town other than than the observation tower in Toa Payoh Town Park. The building, Block 28, behind it has been barricaded and will be torn down for redevelopment but the playground will stay because it is one of […]

Although I am not a fan of sand (messy lah, sometimes got big red ants also you know?), I cannot deny the fact that the sand adds that extra fun touch to the playground. Sometimes if you […]

Wordless Wednesday: 2014 will be the year of change

I was inspired by one of Dinomama’s recent post on The 52 Weeks Money Challenge about saving a little bit every week for 52 weeks. At the end of the 52 weeks, you will be rewarded with quite a substantial sum. Not quite millions, but good enough for a family of 4 to go to Penang […]

Let’s play… Bubber Smart Shapes Set! (Review + Giveaway + Promo)

Product Review (Updated on 13 Jan 2014) Bubber looks similar to any regular play dough you might come across in the market because it’s colourful, it’s soft and mouldable. That’s where the similarity ends. Bubber is allergen free because it is wheat, gluten and casein free and 100% safe and non-toxic. It is also smell free! […]
