** Driving past a lemonade stand without stopping makes me feel guilty.
** I may or may not be a sucker.
** Gravity can kiss my ass (especially since it's responsible for knocking it down in the first place).
** Parenting without a…Continue

I used to think that being a mom was easy, that is, until I became one.
Growing up, I witnessed how my own mother balanced her life as a wife, a careerwoman, her community service and her 7 children! I appreciated how she did her job as a mom so well that…Continue

All food and no work makes us unhealthy.... hahahaa....

Below is an excerpt from an email to my friends Sheila and Tricia (sisters and moms of two) last summer after my son and I experienced our first flight together or travel SNAFU without Daddy’s help. My son and I fly out for the same family vacation later today. My husband meets us later this week. I am optimistic the travel experience will be smoother for us today than it was last year……Continue

A little over a year ago, I had a momentary lapse in judgment. Yes, I allowed my daughter to get a pet guinea pig, which was clearly not the smartest decision I ever made, considering that we have a dog who likes to eat EVERYTHING under the sun. Miraculously, though, the pig and the pooch have somehow managed to co-exist relatively peacefully up until now. That…Continue

How much is it to have an artist draw a portrait of us? I have seen some artists in action frequently in Bukit Bintang sidewalks and in malls. I have mine drawn before when I was in London last time... too bad I lost the portrait, it was too many years ago, I must have misplaced it when my house got flooded last time...
I think it is not cheap to have our portrait drawn... Wonder how much to have our picture drawn like this below.. Nothing like the original but…

** Seeing his grandma in the buff apparently doesn't phase my son in the least.
** Hot flashes and sea sickness don't mix well with a pirate ship cruise.
** And just because it's a "pirate" cruise does not mean that Johnny Depp…Continue

Yesterday I shared with you my Child Care Woes. The day care we use will be closed until August 13th for a suspected mold they found in one of the rooms. On one hand I am happy they take any concerns like this seriously and promptly. On the other hand I have been worried that I wouldn't be able to find child care for the days I work. Right now we do not live close to family or friends. I…Continue

** Summer really needs a speeding ticket.
** Inspirational quotes do nothing but piss me off when I'm in a crabby mood.
** The Olympics have evidently convinced my kids that there's a vault in our second floor hallway. (And I assure you there is not.)
** My brain has a serious case of the farts lately.
** The top of…Continue

July is Sandwich Generation Month, a chance to pay tribute to adult children who are juggling the demands of raising kids while taking care of aging parents. The number of Americans 65 and older is projected to increase from 40 million in 2010 to over 88 million by 2050, doubling the ranks of those experiencing this stressful combination of responsibilities.
We expect to take care of our growing children.…Continue

When I put my husband in charge of getting the kids somewhere, I can generally expect for at least a handful of important things to be completely forgotten. Try as he might, he just doesn't run through any sort of mental checklist before he races out the door. In fact, he's done this ever since the twins were little tiny babies, often leaving the house without so much as a…Continue
