The Surprising Thing About Surprises

Like most Singaporeans, I am apathetic towards surprises.  I kinda like to know what to expect. Besides, if you want to surprise someone over forty, you better check the health status of the person you are surprising. But a GOOD surprise never hurts anyone, except in a Bollywood or Chinese drama. For my birthday this year , my family […]

Olympic 2012 London

Getting The Olympic Spirit

I’m not a huge sports fan, but since the Summer Olympics 2012 (27 July to 12 August) is in session, why not get in on the action. On Wednesday, 1 August, we were lucky enough to catch the Singapore vs Japan Olympics Bronze Medal game for the Women’s Singles Table Tennis on TV channel 5.  And […]

School Holiday Doing Nothing

Do Nothing This School Holiday

I’ve been out of commission for the last 15 days!! To my readers, my deepest apologies.  12 of those days I was ill! Very ill in fact! A nasty virus that makes its rounds on the island decided it was time to pay me and my family a visit. Having a sick child is worrisome […]

Flexiwork for Mums

Flexiwork Options for Mums

I am SO envious of my neighbour. She works from home most days and goes into the office only when she has meetings. Sure, she has to “conference call” with her boss and colleagues in the evenings and work after her kids are in bed. But she is home most days for her children and […]

Art Jamming at My Art Space

Soul Revealing @ Art Jamming

I had an indulgent play-date with SIX other women on Friday night! In a cosy studio and amidst soulful jazz music, helped by intoxicating South African wine, tantalizing female company and witty conversations, our senses were seduced and creative juices aroused to the core of our being.   Now before your thoughts bring you to any X-rated places, let me […]

Happy Woman’s Day

Today is International Woman’s Day! I could pontificate about what makes a modern woman or the international women who most inspire me or how far women have come today.  But let’s not bore you with the obvious.  As I meditated on what it takes to be a woman these days, the image of my maternal grandmother pops […]
