Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge

This week the theme is on Orange   and it is a bright  and sunny day today. The kids and I are in a bright and sunny mood as R’s returning home today from his business trip.

1. Where do you escape to when you’ve had enough?

I escape to the virtual world of internet. It’s difficult enough to get to step out of the house without a kid in tow.

2. What shows are you watching this fall?

I’m currently watching Vampire Diaries 2 (if I do get to switch on the TV when it airs) and re-runs of Kipper the Dog, Oswald the Octopus and other kid shows that the kids are watching.

3. What was the longest roadtrip you’ve ever taken and where did you go?

It would be when I was in University and we travelled all the way to Ayer’s Rock in the Australian desert during our term break.

4. Do you plan on taking your kids to Disney World?

No. Not this few years until the youngest is old enough to walk and patiently queue up for rides.

5. What is something people would surprised to know about you?

I’m a left handed but can do most things with both hands.  I use the left hand to play most sports like badminton and bowling however when it comes to snooker/pool I prefer to use the right hand. 

My Questions This Week

1) How do you deal with kids who love to slouch?

2) Would an ergonomic chair or balance ball chair solve the posture problem?


Aloha Five Questions Friday- End July Edition

Tiger Girl wearing her FOX cap
Today’s a very happy day for R as his little girl is now able to call him ‘Daddy” very clearly. No more “Dada ” or “Papa” but ” DADDY”.  She has progressed a lot in her speech since she  started verbalizing at  4 months old.

Here is my little Tiger Girl at 4 months old

Here she is again calling “Daddy at 10.5mths old.


1. Vow renewal ceremonies-yay or nay?

Certainly YAY. I actually wanted to have a vow renewal ceremony for our 10 year wedding anniversary this year but it didn’t materialize due to the last minute change in work plans for R.

2. What sound/s annoy you the most?
 Monkey Boy burping for no reason or making funny noises with his mouth.

3. If you had to pick, would you have only all boys, or only all girls for kids?
Actually I would rather not pick as it’s been fun taking care of both boys and girls. They bring different kinds of pleasures and satisfactions.

4. Do you believe in alternative medicine?
Yes. I’m for acupuncture and other forms of alternative medication if it is available.

5. Would you take a family members children and raise them if they needed it?

I would if it were their parents wishes and if I can financially afford to do so.
