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 […]

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 […]

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. Primary school enrolment in Singapore is neither a simple nor complicated process. You just have a lot of phases to navigate through. Depending on what type of connections you […]

Similarly, when we first welcomed Ally into the family, there seemed to be so much stuff that we needed to prepare. Retailers telling us that we needed this and that and promoting to you the […]

Of birthdays and Valentine’s day

This is quite a belated post, I mean Valentine’s Day was more than a month ago right? Why do I even bother to right something about that now? Well to be honest, I had worked on a posting that I had intended to post on Valentine’s Day. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to finish writing it […]

The Christmas tree dilemma

With Christmas not too far away (well in 1.5 months time), I toyed with the idea of getting a Christmas tree. In fact, I had already selected the model and tree I want (the great thing about the internet, you can find whatever you want) and even sent the picture to Dave. The tree was […]

The suicide of a 11-year-old boy over exam results

Friends and readers living in Singapore would have seen this piece of news. Yes a very tragic accident. An eleven year-old boy committed suicide over his exam results. Apparently, he did not manage to hit the minimum grades that his parents set out for him, and that fear of being reprimanded or something else probably […]
