Adrenaline Junkie In Us

    Surely the most welcoming sight after 4 long days of walking was the mini-bus that brought the 9 of us to Pokhara Eco Resort. Bidding farewell to our 3 porters was a difficult thing to do. I got emotional and I tried hard to hide it. I didn’t really chat with the guys … Continue reading

My Travel Inspiration – Philippines

Traveling to Manila, Philippines to participate a 5km running event isn’t for everyone. Moving around the world teaches me many things.

Coping with teens

It was our usual Sunday family exercise outing at the “cemetary” This place was previously a cemetary, located at Upper Aljunied behind Woodleigh MRT Station. What was unusual about today’s outing is because Robin was the one initiated it. We covered 5km in 1½ hour. The 2 boys wanted to test out their new pet … Continue reading

2010 has come to a close. Any achievement so far? Robin, Dominique and I were on 28 Aug 2010 Straits Times. My husband said the size of the photo worth SGD10K. (What’s he comparing with?)
