Young and restless

There have been a spat of accidents involving young drivers recently. One, ran from a fatal accident scene, consulted a lawyer before turning himself in on his lawyer's advise!!!
I have no sympathies for these reckless drivers.Weaving through heavy traffic, cutting in and out of lane without prior signalling, tailgate when cars are driving within the road speed and most of all running red lights. I too had been victim of one of these impatient, road weaving youngsters. They should be taught a lesson. Not only do they endanger their lives, they are responsible to the lives of other road users. A life is taken, the driver get away with a fine and ban from driving for 2 to 3 years. Is this enough to wake them up. Be more responsible?

young minds

In the papers yesterday, where possible more graduate mums are choosing a career in child development. Armed with degrees in various fields they are tearing away from the harsh corporate image of fast talking, stern looking backstabbing enviroment to a sunday casual, a stroll in the park and entertaining young innocence minds.
Indeed life as in fashion is a merry go round. Take the latest spec craze. It's now back to thick bold coloured frames. That was in the 60s.
The realisation of the satisfaction and pride nurturing young ones especially when they are your own. Who better than the educated mum to explain to them the wonders of nature, the fabric of life and importance of culture custom and religion.
Childhood is indeed becoming more meaningful after all.

The holidays

After months of preparation for the 'O' level exam it's finally over for MDD. It's back to her ballet and more ballet practise. Then there is the prom night to look forward to this coming wednesday. A last get-together with all the friends before they embark in their next phase in life. To the girls, getting the right attire matters. From the hair do right up to the toes. Spent 5 hours on sunday shopping for that right dress.
As for MDS, he is scrubbing his fingers raw. He does nothing but scrubbing the baking tins, trays and all the washing no one wants to do at the bakery.

A truly sneezing monday it is. Eyes watered, nose dripping...... Sneezed so much that my nose hurts..... what a dreary day. On strong persuasion bought a packet of antihistamine pill to bring some relief .

Busy busy

It has been a week now since MDS started his part time work. Comes back from work, Plong!! on the couch exhausted but full of stories to tell of his 6 hours of serving, cleaning, mopping, serving, cleaning and packing. His lesson so far "must be seen busy Always. Look for something to keep one busy All the time otherwise you risk being reprimanded as lazy"

Part time

After spending a week at home lounging around, MDS has gotten himself a part time job. At a nearby bakery. He started work this morning. This is definately better than the previous year where he spend 10 days moving around singapore selling book mark for donation. Me, a mean mum to encourage him to work? No. I think not. The school system in singapore has kept many students very busy 1st thing in the morning and staying back till late afternoon. Suddenly to have so much time in hand is definately hard to kill. On computer games, lounging in front of the television set, going for more enrichment courses or loafing around the malls is definately not my kind of programmes during the much deserved break. I am proud that he actually made an effort to look for a part-time job. I do hope he'll have the will power to stay on.

MDD is going nuts with anything and everything Korean!!! The latest being the korean serial on the tube every night at 7 p.m.
What draws the masses into a new culture?
The suave looking guys, the saccharine sweet pixie faced gals or the heart rendering tunes

The old familiar fairytale like story?

From J pop to K pop. What's next I pop?
