Christmas 2016.

This year, we spent our Christmas recovering: from sickness, work, sleep deprivation and more. Baby Junna (& hubbs, later on myself) had gotten sick since we came back from our Penang trip, she never really recover from the fever, and it has since dragged on to severe cough and flu. It has been so painful juggling our full time work schedule while running back and forth to the clinic, staying awake tending to a sick baby (and attention-deprived 4 yr old). There were no Christmas music, no decoration, no fairy lights, no Christmas movie as we were dead tired most of the time.

But thank God, Christmas came and baby Junna show signs of recovery and all is right with the world again. We had a lovely home-cooked Christmas eve dinner (with desserts and everything), spend time with cousins, wrap a pressie for JH and got ourselves some chores done.

If there’s anything this Christmas has given me, it’s I’m super wildly lucky to be with my family, have a decent job and a lovely home.

{P.S.: Our much more exciting Christmas last year.}



Growing up and Making Change.

img_20161209_092912Its’ been a tough few days since we came back from Penang. Hubbs was down with flu, and it passed on to Junna, and now my mom-in-law. Work was more hectic than ever, as e have confirmed a few more jobs in the coming year. It was also during this period that I’ve decided to embark on something that’s very close to my heart. I have no idea how to start, clueless on how to squeeze in time to work on it, let alone how to materialist it. But then I saw a quote yesterday from Ghandhi :

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”

and that would keep me going. I don’t know how am I going to do it, I just do.

{I snapped this pic of my firstborn when we were at Ferringhi beach last weekend. I wonder what’s in my kid’s mind at that moment. He looked faraway at the sea, totally not distracted by the speedboat nearby, the cheering of little kids playing ball, or any of the water sports that were happening. He just seems like he’s fully immerse in the tranquility of the waves, the vastness of the sea, the sensation of the tingling sands within his toes. At that moment, he look so grown up, it’s like I’m seeing the future him in perhaps 20 years.}
