It’s Monday and I’m reading Hot Milk


It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date



My mum flew back to Singapore on Saturday, after two months with us. It was so great to have her here, the boys definitely miss her a lot especially my younger boy, who at age 3 is both understanding missing her and not understanding why he can’t be with her in the same place. 

And really, as the kids grow older and as my parents get older, the whole living halfway around the world from them is getting more difficult. The long flight isn’t an easy one, for both young and old. So moving back has always been something we’ve been thinking about. Singapore is such an expensive place to live in. And it’s really stressful for kids. Even young kids in primary school have extra tuition in order to cope with the academic demands of Singapore schools. It’s hard to figure out what is the best for us…

Anyway, some photos I posted this week on Litsy

  1. I’m so glad you got to spend so much time with you mom, but I can see how the distance makes things really frustrating.

    I love your Litsy pictures. How are you liking it so far? I haven’t jumped on the bandwagon yet.
