My blog is carbon-neutral! (A 2010 Earth Day Initiative)
Earth Day is celebrated at the United Nations each year on the first day of Spring. This year it falls on April 22, 2010. Forty years after the first Earth Day, the world is in greater peril than ever. With rising carbon emissions, environmental pollutions, devastations of ecosystems, climate change, our Mother Earth is crying out for help.

Allie Alligator, Bubba Bear and Catina Cat!
After hearing rave review from an ex-colleague about how her pre-schooler son benefitted from the programme, we enrolled Dana for Zoo-phonics lessons officially last month in March.

A glimpse of Dana’s 2nd Birthday Celebration…
On Good Friday, we threw an advanced Birthday Party for Dana. Never did we imagine barely 2 days after, Dana would be warded in the hospital for Kawasaki.

It was exactly a week ago, when we were decorating the venue, storm clouds hovered over our heads and threatened to pour. Slight drizzle soon followed. Together with my hubby, we held hands at the … [Read more...]

Cutting her birthday cake in the ward.. On Easter Sunday, Daddy was supposed to serve in the Worship Ministry in church and we had planned to go to the House of God to celebrate Easter in our best dressed clothes but these plans never materialised.
