“I like your face,” she said in wonder. I stopped in my tracks and blinked in surprise at her honest expression. “Your make-up is so well done.” “Oh thank you,” I breathed with a smile.

“Mummy, are you going to hang that up?” “Hang what up dear?” Distracted as usual. I’ve been in nesting mode lately. No, I’m not expecting. I just feel like my home needs a facelift.

A lady on facebook once posted about how she bought some cucumbers to take home but because the guy sat beside her was looking at her suspiciously, she quickly brought it out and began to munch away. It’s like ever since the news broke about a certain beauty queen’s unfortunate sex tape with a cucumber, … More This Cucumber Situation
Hello darlings? How have you been? It’s been crazy as usual at my end. Hectic work, study, mummy duties and then sick. In fact I am right now in the middle of crafting a 3000 word essay on employee burnout – how apt! So I came down with the flu over the past 2 weeks. … More Mummy Moments: Recession proof tea!
When I was younger, I remember many silly but inventive games we played. While I had older siblings from whom I learnt these games, I am often left amazed as to how D and J manage to come up with them. I mean, I don’t sing into the fan and neither does Hubs. And we … More Which is more annoying?
Happy new year! And all it brings. May our days be merry and bright. I know I am probably the laziest blogger you know but this mummy something is pretty hard.
