As the start of 2017, I gave myself a ‘theme’ for the year and the word was Intentional. I was adamant to stay intentional in all that I do and to give it my best regardless of the outcome. To a large extent, it helped me stay guided and focused. I think I needed the reminder the most when I got distracted or when I get so tired I just wants to lie down rather than be present for the hubs and the little one.
This post has been a long time coming but I just didn’t have the time to write the post. I got reminded again by my 2 year’s old this morning during our morning commute when he told us that he wanted to go to Korea again. He wanted to eat a double cheeseburger and fries and go to Pororo Park in Korea. I’m constantly amused by the snippets of things he remembers about each trip.
Happy Monday! This will be the first of many post regarding Seoul as I’ll be putting up some posts regarding places to go and things to look out for especially when travelling with a toddler. I started the Around the World fabric series for a while now to document all these fabric places I’ve been to whenever I travel. Part of the fun is researching these places and eventually making it there and immersing myself in what the place has to offer and its culture.
With just 4 days away from Christmas, it has been fairly busy in our household. The Christmas tree with new fairy lights are up, presents bought and wrapped (yippie!) and Christmas menu all set! However, I’m still trying to get some Christmas sewing done, tasks at the office cleared before the year ends and tons of little things here and there.
It is now a norm and a habit of mine to scour and visit fabric shops in my travels. I’ve really grew to enjoy these trips to fabric places as every experience is different and there are just so much to see.
At 1.5yrs old, Junior makes his second trip out of the country and my much needed break. I’ve recently just concluded some projects at work and was dying for a break to recharge and rejuvenate. We chose Perth because i) we were travelling with my folks and they loved Perth and ii) I had so many great reviews and recommendations from friends and iii) Australia is such a family friendly country.
Right when Junior was a tiny baby, I’ve always wondered about the things he might like as he grew older. Will he be a “cars” person? Or a “ball” person? Or someone who likes animals like his papa? Will he like to craft? Or prefers to read or draw?
I never did plan to share my proposal story on my blog for I had wanted it to be totally private and special between the Mister and me. But what prompted me to participate in this blog train that was created by Michelle was that I enjoyed reading all these love stories (how I met your father/birth stories etc) and I couldn’t help it but wanted to also document my own love story.
Last month we celebrated Chinese New Year here in Singapore. It’s an occasion where we take time to visit relatives and gather with our love ones celebrating the cross over to a new year. It is also in tradition that married couples give out red packets to younger relatives or parents and grandparents as a form of blessing. I’m sure there is a lot of great articles out there on what Chinese New Year and its traditions really mean.
