[Blog Train] Mummy’s Me-Time

It’s 11.30pm on a weekday night, I’m finally done with my mummy duties and housekeeping duties so it’s time for me to start winding down and enjoy some me-time. I’m an INFP so while I love catching up with family and friends over coffee or tea, it is those little pockets of time spent in solitude which helps me to reflect, relax and recharge.  ...

Mama Turns One & My First Letter to Laurent

I’ll be blogging about Laurent’s birthday party when I receive the photos from Natsuki. But for now, I just want to commemorate the first year of my motherhood journey 🙂 With every passing month, I have been lamenting on how fast Laurent is growing up. While every day he seemed quite about the same as he was the day before, a look back at his  ...

Of Full Heart and Empty Stomach

These few days had been tough. Real tough. Everything was fine over the week and all of a sudden, BAM. I get 7 ulcers in my mouth, a scalded tongue and a sore throat. Ok, I know it’s not really a huge deal but it’s so irritating to be really hungry and unable to get food down because even drinking water hurts! 2 days  ...

My First Mother’s Day

My mum has always been telling me, Mother’s Day is nothing special, it’s just like any other day. But this year, being my first Mother’s Day as a mum, it definitely feels special. Yes, even though Laurent is too young to even understand the notion of Mother’s Day, not to mention celebrate for me. I guess it’s more  ...

[Blog Train] Day in a Life of…

If you have been following my blog, you would have known that Laurent has already started on Infant Care and no, I’m not leading a tai tai life (sadly). I started working the very first day we left Laurent at the Childcare, which means I’ve officially been a full-time working mum (FTWM) for more than a month! Days as a Stay at Home  ...

[Blog Train] Embracing Motherhood

Last weekend, Laurent stayed over with his grandparents as Wayne and I had something to attend to that night. When we returned home from the event, we quickly washed up and were ready to hit the sack within an hour. But both of us ended up tossing around in bed because we seldom sleep so early nowadays. Most nights, after we return home from a  ...

Thank You and Good Bye, Mr Lee

It’s the 7th day since the passing of Mr LKY, the day of his funeral. Since the day PM Lee broke the much dreaded news officially, the nation has been expressing our grieve for Mr Lee’s passing and gratitude for all that he has done for the nation in our own little ways. Overwhelmed by an unexpected degree of sorrow that very morning, I penned  ...

Baby L – Starting Infant Care

It has been less than 2 weeks since Laurent started going to infant care and I am already missing the  precious mornings we spent snuggling in bed (yes, even with his feet and hands all over my face), his excited squeals in the bathtub during his morning baths and hearing his cute little snores while I’m pumping during his naps. I’ve had the  ...

Baby L – Us at 6 months old

I know I’ve been repeating it for the umpteenth time but I can’t help lamenting on how fast time is passing and how quickly Laurent is growing up! He has now past the half-way mark of his status as a baby and looking at him everyday, I almost didn’t realise how much he has changed and grown! Where did all the baby-ness go?! He almost look like  ...
