Easy Recipes: Miel’s Hainanese Chicken Recipe Hack

We were on our way to the supermarket early one evening when a post on my Facebook news feed caught my eye! My friend, Miel, just posted about the success of her Hainanese Chicken dish! I quickly sat back and messaged her to let me in on her recipe so I can include the ingredients in my list of groceries. I seriously needed to satisfy a craving I’ve had since our visit to Wee Nam Kee a few days ago. Turns out it was so easy to make. This was our dinner that evening: You can try it yourself if […]

Homeschooling: Answers to common questions people ask about homeschooling

I’ve recently published the last installment for my blog series on Educating for life home school conference 2014 held last September 6.

Restaurant Review: Tasting a bit of Singapore at Wee Nam Kee

Jay went to Singapore last year for a worship conference. I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned before that my husband is the Music Team coordinator for the Kids Ministry in our church and I was really excited for him when he went. I guess, the only thing that made us a bit sad then was that he had to go by himself. We’ve always wanted to do these things as a family, but it’s just not the right time yet, with the kids still small and at risk of running off and getting lost when we’re out in public. But […]

Letting kids be kids at Kids Workshop

Update: A fellow mom blogger mentioned on Facebook that Kids Workshop has closed business in Greenhills. FYI. When I received a confirmation email for us to check out Kids Workshop,  I knew our kids were in for a treat, after all, what kid can resist a play venue, right? So last Monday, off we went to Greenhills to see what it was all about. We’ve been to many other kiddie play venues and I was curious to find out what this place has to offer that’s different from the others we’ve gone to. Kid’s Workshop is like a Daycare It didn’t take us long […]
