Not long ago, I made a Stupid Mistake.
The Barn Owl and I took the kids to Sentosa for an afternoon of playing in the soft sands of Palawan Beach. A few hours later, we were all covered in a fine layer of sand and sea salt, and it was time to towel off and change into dry clothes for the journey home. Whilst walking to the public changing rooms (which were some distance away), our family got…
A few years back, we went on a family holiday to the South Island of New Zealand, spending a week in Wanaka and another week in Queenstown. Little E was 9 months old at the time and J was nearly 4 years old.
This was Little E’s 2nd trip out of Singapore, so we decided to break journey halfway and stop over at Sydney for a few days before taking the second leg of the flight from Sydney to…

I have terrible history with cosmetics. I learned how to put on warpaint in secondary school during my choir girl days, which really means that I learned how to plaster my face with thick layers of foundation and powder,…
