Rage and Sleep

Is it an accumulation of physical and emotional exhaustion? I’m feeling this rage in me more frequently these two months. It’s an uncontrollable self destructive explosive kind of rage. Like my heart is going to explode outwards. Need to shout, need to punch. I give…

Jubilee is a month old!

Jubilee is a month old!

• 满月了• Baby Jubilee, happy one month old!! To celebrate, your mama decided to jailbreak on the last day of confinement month and bring you out with Papa and Jiejie.  The sun shone brightly and warmly to welcome your day out to botanic gardens.…

Confinement. Quarantine.

Same same, but different. For the whole of March 2020, I’m on a 28-day confinement for my post-partum. A Chinese practice common for mothers who just gave birth in this part of the world. Other Asians, like the Malays and Indians, have similar practices with…

Full Term?

Initially I wanted baby to come later at full full term of 40th week because of my fear of labour pain and the first year with a newborn. But soon, I rather get over and done with instead of living everyday on the tenterhooks. So…

His Wisdom, His Plan

Was asking God about a decision over baby EX’s kindergarten. It’s a good school, but expensive. Not sure if it’s necessary expense at such age. Good because it’s church based and encourages learning through play. Usually such schools of learning in Singapore come with hefty…

Is Life Beyond Grades?

I was initially nonchalant about this ‘Life Beyond Grades’ campaign (“Campaign”). The name of the Campaign is self-explanatory but many people did not take it at surface level. With the increasing flak it received, I started to look into it. The whole saga reminded me…

Blessed Mother’s Day

I wished I had time to write more, on this website and its sub-domains. I need wisdom on how to carve out time. Also, I need miracles for things people take for granted, like having a baby who can self soothe to sleep and sleep…
