postcards

Sending out postcards is one of my favorite things to do when I am on vacation. It's an inexpensive way to let people know I was thinking about them on my travels! The sending and receiving process is always fun, heartfelt, personal and genuine. I also enjoy collecting postcards featuring inspirational images & poetry and especially love this passport range by Making Memories which I've gotten them at JLMSB.

4 already!

It's been sometime since I've posted here. Life has been crazily-busy at work and home, trying to get things wrapped up. I had the privilege of collaborating with really great people. So thankful for all the potential business opportunities. . Also busy catching up with the Olympics on cable tv. It's grand opening was just spectacular and the performances were amazing. Busy it is but every day is a great day for me.

Big Missy just turned 4 on the 7th August, 2 days after mine and 2 days before Singapore 43rd birthday! We cut off her long hair before school started. She is looking more refreshing and of course it is more manageable - no more tying of Big Missy's hair early in the morning for me. :p

She chose and picked two Strawberry Shortcake cakes this year - one for school and the other for home. No more DIY goodie bags this year. I wish I had more time. The kids loved the goodie bags and the yummy chocolate cake, they helped themselves with 2 servings!

Next up, will be making some gifts for the coming teacher's day!

I am a happy woman waiting eagerly for these clothes plus a toy camera given by the girls' dad. :D Two days later will be Big Missy's turn and we are all ready for a mini celebration in her kindy It is going to be her first time celebrating her birthday with her kindy friends and she is so excited about it!
