Hi, my name is Dominique and I am a Work-In- Progress. I don’t know if I’ll able to become a completed work of Art and I’m sure that only GOD knows the answer to that.
I’m constant looking at how to improve my existing skill sets and increasing my knowledge. Every day is a learning experience for me and I hope to be able to impart what I have learned to the kids so that too can benefit from the knowledge gained. I’m working hard at being a better mom and partner.
At 36 years old I can’t say that I have gathered extensive knowledge in the areas of parenting, education or household management. However whatever little I do know I have shared and documented here in this blog through the series that I have written so far.
If you are a more visual person it may be better to check out my Pinterest Boards where you can see first hand what I have been doing this while. You can also view snippets of my daily life which I share on my Instagram .
I’m still learning how to be more grateful about the blessings that I already have received and to be contented with my lot. How not to be envious of others who seem to be doing better then me and to reduce comparing myself against them. I know that it is easier said then done and it can be a recurrent battle that I will face. However with determination and GOD’s grace I’m sure that I’ll succeed.
I’m constantly tweaking what we serve for meals at home to ensure that it is both healthy and yummy for all to enjoy. It is an uphill tasks with the increasing number of foods that have become unfit for consumption due to human manipulation.
I’m also creating experiences for me and the kids so that they will have memories to look back on when they are all grown up.
Last week I brought Tiger girl with me to Taiwan on a short bonding trip. We took the High Speed Rail up to Hsinchu during the weekend to visit a friend. She brought us to this beautiful lake which was situated near the Science and Technology Park where she worked.
These Pagodas were the most distinguishing feature of the lake from the car park. They had glass roofs and looked really pretty with their geometrical shape.
The path way leading around the lake had trees providing canopy on both sides. It was really relaxing strolling around the lake looking at the serene landscape.
We spotted three sparrows perched on a branch on the tree next to the pond. I had to zoom in close to get a clear shot of them.
Tiger girl spotted this large white bird with black beak in the same tree. It was stalking the fishes which were swimming in the water below.
I saw another of the same species near the water. It’s really interesting that this bird has red eyes and different shades of grey for its feathers.
There was a traditional Chinese house at the other side of the lake . It had a lotus pond and also a small garden within its compound. Unfortunately it isn’t the flowering season for the lotus so I wasn’t able to capture any nice blooms with my camera.
