Beauty & The Beast

4.37pm I get back to my desk from the board room where we just had our weekly management conference call. Its timing is horrible as it’s obvious none of the participants, including those who set it up, are ever up for…

The White Blouse

A friend asked me yesterday if I had shifted the focus of the blog from children’s lifestyle to motherhood to which I answered it’s my platform and I can post whatever I feel like. Kidding. See, I find it hard…

Athleisure & Movies

Last Friday at around 6pm, Xena and I dressed up and headed to the Junction to catch a movie, something I intend to make a ritual. Side note-dressing for us lately means throwing on some sweats and a T-shirt. Unless…

For the love of the sport

I recall one too many times in the past telling the mister how much I admired his enthusiasm for golf. To this I added that I wished I was half as passionate in something (anything actually) as he was in…
