A minimalist pregnancy?

Kyith from Investment Moats had shared our November expenses report in a local facebook discussion group (thanks Kyith!) and it had generated a lot of feedback and discussion.

Basically, in the letter, she wanted to provide her daughter with some money tips, or financial literacy, as she takes […]

A simplified childhood

Over the last 2 weeks, I had come across a few quality articles on parenting, not just in Singapore, but generally, how we are overscheduling our childrens’ lives these days, packed with activities and what not, providing little free time, or freedom in return. In a nutshell, we are maximising their activities, and minimising their […]

The case of “volunteerism” for school enrolment

As parents with would-be primary school attending students would know, the primary school enrolment for Singaporean children born in 2011 starts towards end of the month.
