2015 passed by in a blur. Most days, I felt like I was putting out fires, running around like a headless chicken. Besides juggling the kids’ three different school hours and housework, I was teaching 5 days a week. In addition, I was writing in 3 different blogs. The year could only be summed up in one word – HURRY.
If your kids are like mine, who are fascinated with dinosaurs and deep sea creatures, they can find a perfect combination of both at the Science Centre’s Monsters of the Sea Exhibition.
December is the time of the year when you feel like seeing snow. However, the closest to snow that we’ve seen are those foam type being released from machines. Not that appealing to us.
So, the kids were thrilled when we brought them to experience snow in real winter temperature, at Snow City Singapore, where visitors get to experience real snow in a sub-freezing climate.
I used to run regularly and would go for a jog at least once a week. As life gets more hectic this year, with me juggling kids, family and career, I find it a real challenge to fit running into my busy schedule. To make things worse, there was the haze!
With less time for exercise, I felt my fitness level dropped drastically over the past few months. How can I keep fit in the midst of my crazy schedule?
I am no stranger to name labels for kids. Ever since our eldest started going to school (that’s more than 6 years ago!), I have bought name labels from different stores. With three kids in the family now, I have bought my fair share of name labels for each one of them over the years.
Tuition for children is so common in Singapore that if a child does not attend any tuition classes, many will raise their eyebrows. Personally, I have my misgivings about our local tuition industry. As an educator, I find it disturbing that any Tom, Dick and Harry can become a tutor. It is not uncommon to have tutors who are students themselves, or those who have no teaching experience whatsoever. The most bewildering thing for me is, there are actually parents who are willing to hire a student to tutor their children.
Haze is not something new in Singapore. In recent years, we have been affected by haze during the hot and dry months. One of the items that many wish to own when haze hits is a powerful air purifier.
Novita has added a new air purifier to their wide range of products: The Novita PuriClean™ Air Purifier NAP 620
Most people think of Science and Art as two very different and distinct subjects. If you think it is un-un-un-un-un-believable that you can combine Art and Science, you’ve got to check out INTERPLAY, the latest exhibition at Singapore Science Centre.
