I’m Back & Let’s Talk About Happiness & Motivation (#0015)

Hi boys! (and for those who don’t know, each of my posts is meant to be part of the 1000 notes I intend to leave for my boys to read as they are growing up).

How Much Are You Affected By Praise & Blame? (#0012)

Ah… We have learnt to love the smell of praise since we were little. It started since we managed to give our first smile. It went on to when we rolled over for the first time.

When We Create Like Kids (#0008)

While I glanced at my sons’ artwork hanging at our art display area, inspired by Pinterest posts and brought to life by my husband and his magical tool called “the drill”, I noticed that their art did not appear to be in line with what is considered normal. For instance, Mr. O’s guitar looks nothing like a conventional guitar except for its unique pear shape … Continue reading When We Create Like Kids (#0008)
