Little litter bugs

It's true, our beloved nation is slowly being invaded by bugs. Can be found everywhere!!! Biggest tell tale sign, trails of synthetic exoskeleton found literally eveywhere as they molt into enormous cute rotunds. Due to lack of active self clean up ability, they are apt to grow into even bigger size. How did it happen?

Excuse me,

Time is the culprit!!!!
You miss the bus, late for work be reprimanded , your promotion may be at stake. All because you took time to greet your neighbour whom you have not seen for ages.
Late and the driver will be chided for not keeping the scheduled time, keeping all the other commuters waiting. All because the kind bus captain waited patiently for a commuter on the other side of the road to catch the bus
Late and you'll never find a parking space, pacing from table to table looking for a seat at the hawker centre. Finally to stand in the long long queue just to get a quick bite for lunch. All because you were gracious enough not to squeeze into a sardine packed lift at lunch time.

Can we survive without having an extra help around the house? Can we do without a maid?

Choices choices.

With less then 5 days before the 'O' level exam commence, most secondary 4 students are taking a break and going shopping. JC shopping. MDD visited most of the top JC to, get a feel of the atmosphere, the enviroment and the Toilets & libraries!!
Most JCs are having their open house today and tomorrow.
Putting on the best performances, are the CCAs, the students leaders and also the teachers.
With this, the students get a better idea on where they would like to continue their next two years of education.
With this, too students will, hopefully, work even harder to attain the require points to enter the JC of their choice.
Amazing how times have change.

Apart but then again not quite. The latest parting arrangement here in singapore. Legally divorced couples are staying under the same roof.
The modern DINK financial savy couples, it's head over heart. To disposal of the matrimonial home when and only when the property fetches a substantial profit.
While in another case, he pays the mortgage of the property and the household expenses, while she still provides the household services.
The full time mum, with no personal income, no personal savings she can only untangle herself from the legal obligation of a marriage.
Are full time mums making the right choice in life?
To depend on the husband to provide for her every need while she, devote her time on the children.
When things of wrong, what has she to be once again independant?
Once again to be depended on the ex-husband for the maintenance ?

Signs of autumn.

Most exquisite colour and design on a leaf which was part of a decor on a fruit platter.

Hazy daisy?

At PSI reading of 119 this morning, the haze is definately choking the nasal passage and tearing the eyes. the result of the huge disparity between the wealthy and the poor?

Bundle of Joy

My youngest is 9 today. Have always considered her a surprise bundle. When son came two year after his sister, there was a sigh of relief, a task completed. The next 5 years was kept busy bringing up the children. Then one day, that old familiar queasy feeling surfaced. On the 4th of October, after dinner, a good bath then off to the hospital, as the contractions became stronger. Baby arrived just before midnight.
Being the youngest, she is a joy. My source of hugs and kisses. A great companion, keeping me informed with chatters. Most of all, always there to lend a hand when it comes to carting the groceries.

Silver with age

Greying but able
slow but steady

A life time of experience to share and yet......
