My Weekend Lesson About Life

We have just concluded a very successful first pop-up store in Klang Valley for Petite Troopers! Technically, it was both Petite Troopers and Little Baby Grains but the focus was very much on Petite Troopers, since Petite Troopers has always been an online affair.

I’d set some targets for our event, and to my pleasant surprise, we exceeded them! All in all, it was definitely a very successful event and it also gave us a good indicator of the response to our handmade items.

Men vs Women

Have you read my latest blog post? It’s about the 3 (really simple) ways us women can do to just push ourselves that little bit more every day. Mentally, that is.

I dislike stereotypes. People are unique and when we shove them into categorised boxes, we’re disregarding the parts of them that don’t exactly make it into those categories.

 

Nevertheless, we do need some form of broad categorisation in life and that’s precisely what I did when I wrote my blog post!

The Mindset Problem

I don’t know this film but I know this quote.

Tonight, I really felt like writing down my personal struggle in my role as housewife. Just like any normal person, I have my bad days. I try my best to turn these bad days into something positive, but my journey as a stay-at-home mum has been anything but easy. I’m thankful that I have had a whole month of rest after Baby Junior’s birth because this one month has allowed me to reflect.

Hello dearest. 🙂

Been a while as always.

Just got back from an overseas work trip – whenever I get the chance to travel overseas for work, I feel really really blessed.

As much as it takes a toll on me ’cause it is in fact hard work (it’s work after all), I still feel really full from being able to do it.

This Is Why We Should Really Think Twice Before Saying “Don’t” To Our Kids

As Asians, we can’t help comparing our parenting methods with that of our Western counterparts. I believe that this is a much often talked topic when Asian parents come together and here’s a very typical conversation:

Asian Parent 1: Eh, last week we attended Aidan’s classmate’s birthday party. The classmate is American.

Asian Parent 2: Oh, that classmate ah. Sebastian right, his name?

Asian Parent 1: Yaya,

Blessing in disguise

You know how people say that when an accident happens it’s like everything goes into slow motion. I can attest to that, but I can also add that it goes very quiet. When that drunk driver suddenly veered into my lane, everything went silent. It all seemed to take forever. The impact, the glass breaking and flying all over, the front of the car crushing in on me…it was so unreal, as if I was not part of it.

I assume like most people I got caught. I graduated with a degree in computer programming and my sister got me this job in a regulation company maintaining their database up-to-date and retaining their device for the workplace.
