Parenting decisions

Do you find it hard to make decisions? Not only just life altering decisions, but also mundane ones like where to go, what to eat or what to do? These decisions then multiply in quantity and complexity when one becomes a parent. Questions such as what brand of diapers, brand of wipes, breastfeeding or milkContinue reading “Parenting decisions”

Daddy super ability to fall sleep anywhere.

I reckon that I’ve levelled up on my “Sleep” skill set. I’ve had the “opportunity” to go for not one but two MRIs at Sengkang General Hospital. Two 30 minutes sessions on my knee and ankle. I’ve been grossly misled by television (House M.D., The Good Doctor, etc) about the MRI machines. They’re noisy asContinue reading “Daddy super ability to fall sleep anywhere.”

School holidays: Love it or hate it.

As a school going child, I looked forward to all the school holidays, even if it was the 1 week long term breaks. School holidays back then, when I was in Primary school, meant that I could sleep in and bum around the house alone since my parents were at work.

Working from home

2020 came, zoom-ed (pun intended) by and now we are at the tail of it. I recall how in the beginning of 2020, news about some virus from Wuhan had spread like wildfire.

All of us had to bring to school a plastic mug, toothbrush and toothpaste daily. During this “lesson” all of us gathered water from the taps in theContinue reading “Teeth brushing fun”

Getting hands dirty

When living in a built up city, we are hardly exposed to nature. We hardly get our hands dirty. We are thankful that No.2’s kindergarten includes gardening in their curriculum. I feel that it is important to be surrounded by greenery. And what better way to do that is to grow small plants. Getting ourContinue reading “Getting hands dirty”

Composition time!

I looked forward to writing composition in school when I was a kid. I used to get so lost in them, grammar and sentence structure gets thrown out the window. It’s sad that my eldest daughter doesn’t enjoy writing composition as much as I did then and even now. Whenever she gets composition homework, IContinue reading “Composition time!”

Sugar addiction

Disclaimer: this is not a sponsored post. By the way, I will not turn away any sponsorship from F&N if they’re interested. Hi my name is Michael and I’m addicted to soft drinks. It’s an addiction that I constantly fight against. Most of the times I win and sometimes I lose. Especially after exercising, duringContinue reading “Sugar addiction”
