With just a blink of an eye, 10years has flew pass us. It seemed like it was just yesterday that I was 16weeks pregnant with my first child, lying down on a hospital bedroom floor, waking up every 10mins in the wee hours to make sure my dad was ok. It seemed like it was… Continue reading Life goes on but the pain remains

Dada: The good, the bad
Many wrote their dedication to their husbands on behalf of their children on Father's Day. Some kids wrote/made a little token for their dads. My kids? Had to be reminded that it's Father's Day and the only thing that they made for him was from Sunday School (now stuck on our fridge). (Well, it was… Continue reading Dada: The good, the bad
The only way is forward
What's a New Year post without resolutions? A blur photo (low resolution, geddit geddit?) 😁 I've made mistakes throughout 2018 and I thought it'll be nice to pen some resolutions down. Kinda like making a commitment. "Ahh Ciku, you write one ah! Better stick to your words!" So here goes everything! My kiddos I'm blessed… Continue reading The only way is forward
When I tell people that my eldest son has Dyslexia, they would usually ask.. 1)How did you discover it? 2)When did you discover it? 3) Someone in your family is dyslexic?

It made me feel like I just gave birth for the first time yesterday. (Feel only ah, figure of speech.😑) My happy first born was such an easy infant to care… Continue reading Where’s that chubby baby?
When we only have us..
Living in a world without internet connection. The husband and I decided that we should bring the kids out for some family time. Giving my mummy (their nanny) a break too. We brought my mum along cos she likes just watching them be kids. We chose Sekeping Serendah and was told that there won't be… Continue reading When we only have us..
I Namba TWO!!
Lucas is talking a lot more now and God knows how my kids became competitive amongst each other, they all started to compete being Number 1. #naturallykiasu But it did help Lucas in understanding some things. Like: If he finishes his food first, he says.."I'm Namba one!" (He pronounces number as Namba.) Or when he… Continue reading I Namba TWO!!
When grieve never ends..
8th of July. My family along with a lot of friends mourned the death of my father, 9 years ago.

Seems like yesterday, that we would walk hand-in-hand in public, not bothered if passers by… Continue reading When grieve never ends..
That work-life balance
The Balance Is something a lot of people are gunning for. Myself included. But I'm beginning to question whether it's something for organizations to sell. "OH! we practise work-life balance." or it's a "new methodology", you know , kinda like the whole peer pressure going on. Perhaps it's just something that we are "influenced" to… Continue reading That work-life balance
