The Blue & Red Water Gun Story

Not too sure how the conversation came up, but we were talking about how our future kids will be like. It started off with how our future daughter would be like. Of course, Marc gave the only right answer: that she will be just like me.

Then I asked him, what if we had a son?

“Well, I hope that he will have the good traits of both of us.. and not the bad ones!” 
“Like what?”
“I don’t know what I would do if he inherits your indecisiveness!” 

To prove his point, he enacted a scene with a high pitched voice. Read More »

Happy Chinese New Year!

Hey guys! Wishing all you readers a wonderful Year of the Goat!

My mom cooked for reunion dinner this year! It was the FIRST home cooked meal after my late grandmother couldn’t cook anymore some 15 years ago. In fact, my youngest brother who is 14 years old is experiencing his very 1st home cooked reunion dinner.

It was such a significant moment for the family, for me at least.
Nothing fancy, just 3 dishes with soup and the yee sang.
With just my family.

All these years, I felt that Chinese New Year (“CNY”) has lost its tradition and significance. No more waking up early in the morning to collect my angpows from my parents, going to my grandparent’s place in the afternoon and have vegetarian dish for lunch, visiting my relatives from my dad’s side in the evening and watch cartoons till I fall asleep! Even on the 2nd day, we would visit relatives from my mom’s side and my parents would give me a bit of money to play some card games (read : CNY gamble, haha). Somehow, these lovely traditions have all gone when my grandparents passed away.

“Can’t live with them, can’t live without them”

It’s been a while since we got the time to gather and have family lunch together. With work taking 3/4 of our time, we hardly see each other during the weekdays. Being a public holiday today, we had buffet lunch with Marc and we ate till we can’t eat anymore. Totally the highlight of my day 😀
