Little Good Time

It was very nice for me to be able to meet a good friend and have a little talk about everything, this and that, just like the old times. It seemed like that it's already been a long time since I had a friend to whom I can talk to that physically in front of me. Face to face. I really felt good. Because honestly I don't really have many close friends living here right now. 

This is T.P, one of my best friends from Master's class. I really thanked her the time we spent on her short visit to Singapore and for the stories shared when we went sightseeing to GbtB. It made really kind of feel good, for still having good friends, though not so many. 

Biking to Bedok Reservoir

After went biking to Gardens by the Bay two weeks ago as my first trial to bike with  mobike, a bicycle sharing platform. Last Sunday my husband and I biked to Bedok Reservoir using two mobike bicycles for each of us, while our daughter was carried by my husband using baby carrier for the whole entire time. 





Now I think about it, there's a lot of perks of living in Singapore that I wouldn't be able to find in another place, and this is just one of them. We had a lot of things to do for the weekend, without going to the malls so much. 

Read Again


It's kinda of ironic that when I strongly encourage my child to engage with books as an important part of her daily activities at home, I don't even give myself a some time to read any books. I love reading so much when I was still single that my money was spent mostly in buying books, despite the fact that I had a very demanding work and school life. 

Well, I think it's time to start giving myself a chance to have a good time to read books. After doing some reflection to the past, I know that there's no such excuse for not being able to read because of the hustle and bustle of life. 

Toilet Training pt. 2

This is a second attempt of toilet training for my daughter S after our first trial back in July after we came back from our travel and short stay in Indonesia. At first, it was very stressful for me as she still couldn't control her bladder yet, but now everything is just getting better day by day, as we're only have one or two accidents a day as we are about to enter the third week. I am confident that she'll be toilet-trained sooner than I expected. We just need to give her a little bit of time. 

Thief of Joy



Maybe I need to keep this famous quote by Theodore Roosevelt in mind every time I think that life was a lot more fun carefree when I was younger. Dude, this is what they called adulthood, so just brace yourself and enjoy it. Whatever it takes to make you feel like you can endure it, don't lose it. And don't stop struggling yet.
