Although I had attended the ICC Tournaments before in previous years, I had mainly gone as an observer and a supportive husband and father. However, this year was different.
Rebecca borrowed this interesting book for her literary interpretation. It tells of a very heartwarming relationship between a lady and the singing mouse who lived in her house. After Rebecca read through the book, she picked out a part of the story that she would like to tell. As Rebecca began memorizing her part, Li-Ann became one of her audience. Continue reading →
One Saturday morning when John had to be on an online call, we all listened in on our way to the park as there was much to learn! However, as the girls were not really engaged on the call, they got bored and tired when we still had many minutes to go to the end of the call. I discovered that the car can be quite a good place for online calls provided the person is NOT the driver, the batteries of laptops/phones are charged and the signal is stable.
Persuaded that they (the girls), can’t go anywhere else (coz mom said stay in the car), they decided to make themselves as comfortable as possible. Continue reading →
One day in August 2016, I received a message from dear Colleen. Colleen said that after she read Li-Ann’s post Bro Fist, she missed LA and would love to Skype her to chat or do a craft together.
I am most grateful for Colleen’s kind gesture and we arranged for the online connection. LA was very excited coz she really enjoyed to talk to Colleen Jie Jie (sister)! Continue reading →
May the Lord bless you, my dear one, on your SPECIAL 12TH BIRTHDAY!!!
We were very thankful as we celebrated this important milestone during the last weekend. Li-Ann was unwell but she persevered and had lots of fun!
GO! GO! GO! LI-ANN!! Continue reading →
When I was asked if my kids would be interested to attend a 2-day workshop at Pulau Ubin, I immediately signed them up and offered myself to be one of the chaperones of the 20 children as well. What’s more – the workshop is FREE – no need to pay for bum boat rides, no need to pay for lunch and cold water is provided!!! What more can a Singaporean ask for?
Armed with insect repellents, snacks, water, hats, ponchos, camera and extra clothes, we were ready to GO!! Mr Alan Tan, our facilitator for the 2 days, met us at the Changi Point Ferry Terminal punctually at 8.45am. 2 vans picked us up and sent us where we needed to go. That gave our legs rest and brought us quickly around the island. There were no traffic jams at all!! What a respite from the busyness of city life.
OK here goes….Join in the FUN, follow the RED letters and see what it spells out 🙂 Continue reading →
Haha, sorry for the pun. Well, where have U been?
Recently, I went to Pulau Ubin (pronounced- oobeen), the second largest island in Singapore, and participated in a workshop called Young Hearts for Conservation. It was really nice to be away from the concrete jungle and not hear the sounds of cars. On Pulau Ubin, I was surrounded by trees and plants and I could hear the sounds of birds and insects.
