Year of the reunion 
Year of the reunion 

When I first came back to Singapore in 2001, I was gutted in so many ways. I had left so many loved ones who had pretty much been my family whilst I was away. They’ve never left my heart and I have to say I’m pretty thankful that work has taken me back to the UK more »

There’s something about Melbourne
There's something about Melbourne

It just gets me every time. The outdoors, the lifestyle, the friends and family. I was so happy to get back home to Singapore and to sync my chope into a good bowl of Bak Chor Mee… But still, memories of many a barbie, the sun, laughter and beer o’clock had me daydreaming. But we’re more »

Goofing around 
Goofing around 

These two are so much closer these days, it makes my heart smile. Nothing Cheers me more than seeing them love each other, making jokes, goofing around and giving in to one another…  Most of the time anyway!

A piece of his past
A piece of his past

One very cool thing that was able to happen whilst we were in Vancouver was our meet up with Hubba’s ex-bowling coach, Ron. Ron had pretty much been a secondary father figure to Hubba during his competitive days and I had heard so much about this man and how he taught Andrew many life lessons. more »

Missing the mountains
Missing the mountains

It's really hard not to think about Vancouver and miss it a lot. Is it possible to be soul mates with a place? When I close my eyes and think of the mountains and the clouds, the people and their kindness, the trees and the soul of the forest, it just brings me to a more »

My Best Subject
My Best Subject

This is probably the best photo I have ever taken in my history with photography. It was taken at Stanley Park in Vancouver last month, when Hubba and I went for a long walk together. We did lots of that. Walking. And sitting on benches. I find that hilarious – that our pastime of choice more »

Peek & Place – You’ve Got This
Peek & Place - You've Got This

When you come back from a significant trip, it’s easy to talk about where you went, who you were with, what you ate, anything you might have bought. But the truth is, I came away with a whole lot more than just memories of good food and couple selfies. The real souvenir was a mindset. more »

The Great BC – Before Children? No – British Columbia.
The Great BC - Before Children? No - British Columbia.

It seems like a lifetime ago that Hubba and I were in Vancouver on our first adventure together in 4 years. In reality, we’ve only been back for about 2 weeks and I suppose this blog post is long overdue. A month ago, we took the brave step of going on a two week holiday more »

My Tiny Travellers
My Tiny Travellers

The countdown to going back to work has begun – So when Dad said the folks were going to Hong Kong to visit some of our relatives and asked if I might consider taking the girls along, I thought “Why not?”. I can’t imagine when I’d have the time again once I get back to more »

All Aboard!
All Aboard!

We’d been talking about doing a little trip on the Tiger Too for ages, so when Angela decided to make a date on Hari Raya, I was so excited about the trip – especially since all my favorite girls (and boys) said yes and locked in the date! Of course the one thing I struggled more »

Escape to Danang
Escape to Danang

A few months ago, Hubba and I made a decision to book a resort getaway to one of our newest hotels in the region, InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort. It seemed to make sense visiting a Bill Bensley, since I’d also seen and loved the design of Indigio Pearl in Phuket. It was supposed to more »

Mates

“Janice Lee Fang! Look at you, on my doorstep. You haven’t changed one bit,” Jodie says as she opens her front door. Apparently, I look the same as when I was in Uni. I suppose it’s a compliment. Jode’s one of my dear ex-housemates in London. It’s funny how work has brought me back for more »

Feed Me, Mummy
Feed Me, Mummy

I’ve been getting a lot of feeding questions from Mummies out there, so here’s a little attempt to answer some of them. Melbourne was really the start of our little girl’s adventure with food. Up till our trip, she was on all things puree and she’d only started dabbling in chinese porridges and alphabet pasta more »

From Infant to Toddler in 10 Days
From Infant to Toddler in 10 Days

It’s amazing what 10 days can do to a baby. I guess you could say she was already changing at the time of our departure but I think the quality time spent, the multitude of experiences we packed in during our stay, as well as and the daily exposure to older kids just made it more »

Traveling with Bubs
Traveling with Bubs

Melbourne was Naomi’s first ever trip anywhere apart from home. It was going to be a new experience altogether – cooler weather, different people, new car seat… everything was going to be unfamiliar. But what made me most nervous was getting on the airplane. Packing for a seven hour flight can sometimes be a bit more »

Hello from Down Under
Hello from Down Under

A great big hello from our little family down here in Melbourne! I know it’s been awhile but between wrapping things up at my part-time work gig, getting myself signed at a new full-time work gig, getting us packed up for a 10 day holiday – our first ever family holiday with the Bug – more »

Being Two for Three
Being Two for Three

When Naomi was about three months old, there came a point where Hubba realized how much we were losing ourselves as a couple. Being the Mother, it was easy to sort of keep my head down and soldier on without thinking about it – especially struggling with the lack of sleep. We’d been doing ‘shifts’ more »

Batam Drak Bike Park
Batam Drak Bike Park

It’s really been a long time since the hubs and I took off on a day ride off road together. Back when we were dating, all day rides across the border were not that uncommon – be it on or offroad. But not surprisingly ever since Naomi was born, our outdoor activity has been a more »

Babymoon in Beijing
Babymoon in Beijing

Babymoon (Definition): A vacation taken by a couple that is expecting a baby in order to allow the couple to enjoy a final trip together before the many sleepless nights that usually accompany a newborn baby. [Source: Wikipedia] The plan was to get away somewhere just the two of us, to take some time out more »

Roly Poly Hairdo

I walked about Sanlitun today and got bored. Stopped by the Apple store to check in with work and get some emails typed up. Geek. So how did I end up spending my day? I went for a haircut. Don’t feel as unkempt as I did before so I guess it did the trick. Whaddya more »

Life’s Good: On the Sunshine Coast
Life's Good: On the Sunshine Coast

It is so odd being in a beautiful place like Coolum for work – On the one hand, you know you really need the rest after the long day but all I feel like doing is going for runs along the beach and exploring the surf. Alas, I also have zero energy at the end more »

Sweet Reunion
Sweet Reunion

Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver, the other is gold. That’s a saying I’ve heard probably a million times since I was a kid. But it’s really only in your adult life that you slowly start to experience the truth in it. Cands and I became fast friends in boarding school. more »
