A proud parenting moment

As Dave has shared in the previous post, there was an estate party in our neighbourhood last month, and we attended the event. The event was pretty well organised, with lots of family friendly activities and games, many suitable for young kids. Ally might have been a bit too young to participate in some of […]

Surviving the 11.11 challenge

I have a confession to make. Even though I try to live minimally, and purchase only things I need, I do a lot of window shopping. Online. Ok, that is an oxymoron, some might say. If you are a minimalist, you won’t even bother looking at stuff like that. Because, you probably don’t need any […]

Compassion at the work place

An uncle of a colleague passed on earlier this week. It was an upsetting event and I passed her my condolences. The passing of a love and close one is always one of the hardest ordeal to overcome for anyone and words alone are insufficient to describe the feelings, and little can be said to […]

Pre-school in Singapore

This is one of the hottest topics right now at the moment, and especially since it is an area of focus that is highlighted by our Prime Minister at the recent national day rally.  With a preschooler in the house, we read with interest on the developments in the sector, and are definitely heartened by […]

What do we do with our old clothes?

This was a question posed by a reader previously. I thought we would share it here to provide our readers some ideas and options of where you might want to drop your old clothes. I had previously shared that textile waste is becoming a worldwide problem, especially with the proliferation of fast fashion – people […]

Debt or no debt?

In a commentary published earlier this month on The Straits Times, Lorna Tan, an investor writer and senior correspondent of the bureau wrote a “letter” to her daughter, who had just graduated from tertiary education. Basically, in the letter, she wanted to provide her daughter with some money tips, or financial literacy, as she takes […]
