On learning that I haven’t been doing anything psychological vocationally, people often express a disappointing tone as if I had wasted the years towards obtaining a psychology degree. Truth to be told, since my return to Singapore, things at home start getting broken, one by one, wave after wave. I even posted a status update… Read More Daily Psychology and Proactive Positive Mindset
I am back in Singapore, temporarily. My sister came to get me at the airport past midnight, and we, the entire family, went downstairs to have some supper when we got home. The fantastic thing about Singapore is that there is always easy access to food at any time of the day. The less desirable… Read More Mom’s Creative Problem-Solving
I had wanted to close the chapter for Odense, Denmark, properly before I route back to reconnect the dots in Perth, Australia. I had been in a frantic mode since weeks before departing Demark to transit in Singapore for a week and then back to Perth. Clearly, I am not quite a light traveler (what… Read More Life is a Rush! I’m Back in Perth!

When I was a child, I… Read More Christmas, the Beginning of the End

They tricked me into the classroom and closed the door behind me while my mother stood at the other side of the door. I screamed, cried, kicked the door and possibly scratched the paint off too –… Read More Relationship Gone yet Cherished

We don’t keep the main door closed when we are… Read More Lesson of Anticipation and Procrastination
Mum bought packs of durian yesterday. She has been super generous with her ‘sharing’ since her small windfall. I am not stopping her, even though the way this goes, the windfall may sometimes escalate into a bad spending habit and deplete her savings. It’s her money, I never really interfered into how she manages her… Read More Durian for Lunch | Leading to Deeper Thoughts
