Stylish Parenting

I grew up with three elder sisters. They went to a girls school and I went to boys school. During our early years, we all went to schools that were close to our home. The two schools were only about two kilometers away and it took a very short time to reach our destination on…

Just a 1992 Circle – Part 1

For those who read my earlier post, I talked about the fact that Moon and I have been married since the very last day of 1992. Getting married is not a small matter, right? Many of my friends spent years trying to find their soulmate. Some of them are still looking for that special one.…

Late or not?

We are officially in 2015. “Officially” because as of this time, schools have re-opened, people are back at work and life is pretty much back to normal after the year end celebrations. Quoting my little one at home, “The 12 days of Christmas are over.” She is right – now is back to life and…

80 and Counting

World Cup 2014

I went to a school with an excellent soccer history. We were the team to beat among all the schools in Hong Kong. As there are many high schools in Hong Kong, most sports are divided into different divisions. Division 1 is the highest level and the schools compete among themselves in their respective divisions.…

A 55 year old story

I was in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, over the weekend with my family. The Singapore school calendar includes a month long break in June and at the end of the year instead of a two-month long summer holiday. After all, it is endless summer in Singapore anyway, so it is hard to pin-point a ‘summer’ holiday…
