My family has always been cottage-goers. Growing up, a few relatives had cottages, but one in particular had very special memories, and always felt like home.
My Aunt and Uncle owned a small cottage on a quiet little bay. It wasn't anything extravagant, but I have some of the best memories of my childhood from up there. This cottage sat on a small cliff with about 50 stairs…Continue

Obviously, I love my kids with every little fiber of my being, but I swear to, well......you, actually, that they're involved in some sort of conspiracy theory to drive me straight to the loony bin. Seriously, if I didn't know any better, I'd think they'd bought stock in Crazy Town, which is clearly where I'll be residing soon enough. Any potential…Continue

Recently, I finally surrendered to pains which have been nagging me for way to long. Much like the plumber with the leaky faucet, we, Doc families seem to be walking case studies of a plethora of ailments, aches, and pains - especially the adults. If something's hurting, I just wait until Doc H comes home, mention it in passing and wait for a response. Usually, I get no response other than a nod (translation: I have no idea. You’ll probably feel better in a day…Continue

Aaron calls me each night through viber (that is one of the reasons he gave me an iPhone to save costs :) and last night we talked about our plans to go traveling again this year. He told me that there is a good promotion in this certain airline to Sydney and Hong Kong in March and April respectively. The flight rates…Continue

Though all of us are curious about our roots and sometimes even fascinated by our family history, genealogy used to be perceived as a dry artform practiced by the retired folks, i.e. the ones who really had the time to delve into the research and the connections and the research again.
Well, here’s a company that is making genealogy look fresh and…

Remember when you were growing up and you said you'd never ever do to your own children the things your parents did to you? Perhaps it was a vow you made to yourself in the midst of snot and tears as you slammed the door of your room so hard that it nearly shattered the windows? Well, my sixteen-year-old self would probably punch me in the face for doing so, but here's me admitting…Continue

What is a MUST during Chinese New Year? Besides the food, of course.... hahaha... Red packets are very "vital" during this festive season especially to those who are not married yet... they are the receivers whereas the married ones are the givers..
Just look at the receivers' faces... oh, I must also give with a cheerful heart.. hahaha.... the red packet.. it doesn't matter how much you put inside.. it is just a Blessing... not the money that counts, right? :)…

As the mother of an 11-year old boy, the news of Jerry Sandusky’s alleged child abuse and the questionable diligence Joe Paterno exercised in reporting the incident hit close to home.
Needing an outlet for my feelings, I posted the following on my Facebook page immediately after I heard the news:
I don't care about winning streaks, national titles, or hollow sound bites. That members of the Penn State administration barely raised their hands when faced with eye-witness…Continue

Do you ever wanna just walk away from your kids in public and act like you don't know who the hell they are? No? Surely that's not just me. Call me Mommy Dearest if you will, but when my kids have a brain fart and act like complete Neanderthals who've never heard of manners, I sometimes think it would be easier to point and stare and pretend like I'm disgusted by the horrible excuse…

Can someone please explain to me what 'quality time' is? I hear a lot about it, and hear that sometimes it's not the quantity of time that you spend with your kids but the quality of the time spent that is what matters most. It seriously makes me wonder what the hell 'quality time' is.
Take our recent evenings, for instance. My kids and I have found the TV show 'Sliders' on Netflix's instant watch, and we've spent the last 3…

I belong to a family that loves to eat. Whenever my mother would chide my father about keeping cholesterol at bay, the smarty-pants would point his spoon towards the sky and say, "We should feast while we're alive. I'm sure heaven is a great place, but I don't know if there's anybody up there who can cook like you…Continue
