Goodbye 2016! Hello 2017!

2016 was much of a ride for our family!

Faith and Family

We started last year with some setbacks but ended the year standing more faithful, thankful and stronger. Over the last year, I've truly experienced "God makes all things beautiful in his time!" even when things aren't beautiful or smooth-sailing or perfect in my eyes at the very moment. 

I give thanks to God for all the ups and downs, the good and bad in 2016 for I know all things were set to according to his plan. All I need to do is to trust HIM, seek HIM and leave things in HIS good hands. For in the middle of the mess, God is writing a message. 

With another baby and a new nest in months to come by God's grace, I believe my life will surely be more exciting (and in a bigger chaos) than ever. I seriously don't know how am I going to juggle the new roles and changes. 

So, all I long for 2017 is to pull through these 12 months and settle down by 2018. I know I'm not going to get by just by my own strength and will. And, I pray that I would continue to hold on to his promise and embrace the joyful chaos with growing faith, peace, patience, wisdom and strength.

Letter to my "big sister-to-be"

Dear Emma

You are going to be a big sister this coming June!

You just turned 3 years old when we found out that we are expecting another baby a few months back. And, it wasn't hard to break this good news to you as you have been pretty ready and excited to be a big sister.

Emma's going to be a big sister!

Praise the Lord!

Emma's going to be a big sister this coming June!

I'm 14 weeks along and things are moving on pretty well. I've my fair share of morning sickness and tiredness but I'm coping with taking things slower, sleeping earlier and Daddy's help. The start of 2nd trimester has brought me bad nausea but I'm feeling slightly better these few days. I pray for more strength and start to get better physically. 

While we are all thankful and excited about having another baby, it's a totally different feeling and experience from the time we had Emma. With many upcoming changes, I'm sure it's going to be a real thrilling roller-coastering year and journey ahead! And, we just have to trust God completely and leave all things in his hands.

Do keep our family in prayers! Thank you!

Outdoor fun at Dragon Playground @ Toa Payoh

It was a cloudy cool morning! After a visiting at Bishan, we decided to check out the nearby heritage Dragon Playground at Toa Payoh.

The past weekends were filled with rain and wet grounds so it certainly felt like a great indulgence for Emma to be finally playing outdoors! We still love shopping malls and indoor playgrounds but I find it recharging to be running, swinging, jumping and sliding under the sun once a while!

The Power of Hugs by Huggies


One of the best feeling in the world is when you hug someone you love, and they hug you back even tighter.

There are many reasons why our family hugs!

We hug as we love
We hug as we care
We hug as we comfort
We hug as we rejoice
We hug as we fear

But, it really didn't cross my mind that hugging actually brings lots of physical and psychological benefits to a baby
