Top Ten Things I wish I could Do

I am in the mood for memes so I am starting one! Actually I hadn’t done a meme or a tag for a long time, not till Lian tagged me recently. Years ago, when I first started blogging I was very happy to be part of a meme. Sometimes I even tagged myself or shouted tag me, tag me. Then I became too busy and I didn’t want to be tagged anymore. Now I am back to tag me, tag me. I am fickle, aren’t I?

Anyway, this is a very easy one. You just have to give the same heading and list down the top ten things you wish you could do, then based on your list, analyse yourself. Now isn’t that fun?

Here is my list of top ten things I wish I could do….

  1. Bake a cake
  2. Knit
  3. Draw cartoons
  4. Play the piano like a pro
  5. Write a book
  6. Sew my own and my family’s clothing
  7. Paint nature landscapes and portraits
  8. Dance, any dance will do, I’m not choosy.
  9. Speak in Public (I do wish I have the gift of the gab)
  10. Sing professionally (instead of in the bathroom. I think that to have a good singing voice is truly a special gift and talent, which I don’t possess, so I guess I’ll have to stick to the bathroom
  11. Cut, create and style hairdos
  12. Be a make-up artist and create beautiful faces
  13. Be a fashion consultant
Eeks! I thought I said 10. When I first started, I could just think of not more than 5 but then suddenly my brain flooded with all sorts of things that I wish I could do. Ok, lets not limit ourselves to 10 then shall we. Anything goes. 🙂
From my list, I can see that I am a homebody and its a no brainer that I am a right brain person. What about you……

Behind in tags, but first the awards

I’m really behind in tags till I can’t remember who tagged me on what! Sorry lah folks. Theres only that many hours in a day. Hehe. However, I will remember the awards though. So vain hor. So a big thank you to Montesssorimum who gave me the following awards.

1. The smile award because she says I make her smile. 🙂

Well, you make me smile too! And so do you

  • Adrian who writes in such a candid, frank and unreserved manner and you….
  • Sasha whom I think is very farnee and a happy go lucky type and….
  • Fatty Poh who makes me smile whether she blogs or or not  

There are many more which make me smile too but I think they’ve got the smile award from others before me.

2. The Creative Blogger Award because she says I write inspiring posts. 🙂

Ahem! Thank you. Thank you. I only wish I could inspire myself when I need instant inspiration but blogging allows me to try to do that ie. inspire and motivate myself by talking to myself. Instead of talking to my head, I talk on my blog. Lol!

As for creativeness, I do enjoy writing poems so I’ll accept in that area. However, I often get comments about how creative I am in doing my children’s crafts. Well, I’ve said time and again that most of the ideas can easily be sourced from books and the internet and they are not all my own. I just improvise on them a little sometimes, that is all. 🙂

For real creativeness as a blogger, I think the award should go to


My very first blog post revisited

I got this fun meme from 5Xmom the fun mom. In this meme, you are supposed to go back to your very first blog post, then copy and paste it for your new readers who do not know you from the beggining, to read. Its very timely for me to reflect back especially after my Blogging Life Cycle post.

So here it is…… TADAAA! My very first blog post published on Friday, September 12, 2004 at exactly 11.47 am on my Parenting Blog.

New to this

Just started this blog so that I can put in my links for easier access by me or anyone with similar interests. I shall also publish and keep poems, sayings and other stuff that I’d like to keep but have no filing space for at home. So why not file it on the www. Great idea.      

This is my personal blog but hopefully like minded sahm can share their links of interesting websites on parenting, household organisation, babies and toddler links etc for my ds 5 months and dd 2 1/2 years.

Thats all for now. Will check in again later to post those links. 

Alamak! So boring one. Hahaha. So have I accomplished what I set out to do? Yes, I think so. I still write poems and publish quotes. I still file my favourite links there and in addition I’ve started sharing craft ideas and I’ve gotten to know many like minded parents and non-parents too in the process. Yeah! What a journey. I love it!

The interesting thing to note for me is that when I first started my boy was 5 months old and my girl 2 1/2 years. Now they’re 3 1/2 years and 5 1/2 years. Wow! How quickly the time has flown!

Now I would like to visit the first blog post of those bloggers whom I’ve known for some time but never got round to reading their first blog post. Now this will be very interesting. Will you do it? Anyone else not in this list who feels like sharing just let me know and I will link you. 🙂

  • Sesame
  • Bkworm
  • Dobbs
  • Clair
  • Jason
  • mott
  • Vien
  • Do you think you’ve changed since your first blog post? Do you think I’ve changed?

    If there was a genie, I’d wish ……

    Thank you Shopping Mum for sending the genie my way. The genies look rather cute. Now if only they were real, I’d wish to be happy and healthy. Looking at the wish list, I can see that my wish is just about the same as everyone else’s. We all just want to feel love, joy and happiness and most importantly we would like to be in good health too. Thats the key to happiness isn’t it?

    Now, I’m suppose to send the genie along to other bloggers too…

    ***End Copying Here***

    I’m feeling a little tired today, too tired to tag anyone. So anyone reading this who would like to have this genie visit your blog, just drop me a line in the comment box and I will grant your wish. Muahahahaha. Meaning I will link you lah!

    Alakazam! The genie is now flying over to….


    I am Loved and a Nice Surprise.

    I am loved by Sasha. Thats who. Hahaha.

    She says… “Still remember you thought me how to make chic broth! Thank you!”

    Hahaha. I had totally forgotten about that when we first “met” on the blog she had written to me asking me how to make chicken broth for her beloved Jayden and she remembered and gave me this for it. Thank you Sasha. Mmmm Muaks! (Geli anot? Haha.)


    I’m supposed to spread the luv around so here goes this tag to:

    Lian, Montessori Mum, Fatty Poh, Lilian, Jazzmint, Clair, Mamabok, Vien

    And then Montesorri Mum gave me a nice surprise.

    She said “You have inspired me a lot through your blog posts.”

    Ahem. Really? I have learned a lot from you too, Montessori Mum. Thank you for this very pretty award.



    Now what shall I do next. Should I hang the awards or badges on my blog? Its getting cluttered. Should I give pass this nice surprise to another blogger and make their day?

    According to the originator of the Nice Matters award it is intended for “those that are just nice people, good blog friends, and those that inspire good feelings and inspiration! Those that care about others, that are there to lend support, or those that are just a positive influence in our blogging world!” For those receiving the award, you may like to pass on the award to 7 whom you think deserves it.

    Here’s my 7:

    Jesslyn, Mommy to Chumsy, Dolphine, Allyfeel, Mommy of two angels, Sue, Channelwong
