Things I Learned from Courageous Catie and Her Courageous Parents

When I first read about Courageous Catie, I immediately wanted to give something to the family. So when my brother-in-law and sister visited them (at the request of my cousin, who knew the parents), I decided to tag along. When we got there, I saw Catie’s mom was rushing out to look for a place to stay. Catie’s dad couldn’t…

A Two-Year-Old Asks about God

Lately, Lia has a few questions about God that is beyond me. -oOo- Lia: Mommy where is Jesus? Me: He is here with us! Lia: But you said He is at church? Me: Yes… He’s there too. Lia: And He is in my heart? Me: Yes… (wondering where she’s going with this) Lia: How does…

A Mother Says Goodbye – Joey Feek & Courageous Catie

Lately, I’ve been tired, and stressed out, and working long hours, so I thought I’d take a day off last 29 February 2016 to relax and just hang out with my husband and daughter at home. No plans to go anywhere or do anything – just stay in. One of the first things I read…

Answers to Some Very Specific Prayer Requests

Eleven days before I gave birth, I wrote a post about some very specific prayer requests (read the original post here) I had with regards to the delivery. Here’s an update on God’s answer to my requests. 1. That my hubby will be at home (and not at work) when I have to be rushed to…

Good Gifts

Today, baby Lia and I were taking our afternoon nap together when I started to hear her whimper. It was feeding time, so I slowly (somewhat reluctantly) got up to heat up the expressed breast milk that I put in the fridge earlier. By the time it was done, she was already crying at the top…

Our Baby’s Name

We’ve finally decided on a name for our baby girl, and it’s Eliana Grace. Until the day of my delivery, the name was supposed to be Eliana Tabitha, but before my hubby could register her birth at the hospital, we decided to change the second name to Grace. I first suggested this name to him…

Another Refund from KK

Today, my hubby and I were surprised to get a cheque from KK Hospital for SGD55.43 as a refund for excessive charges on February 8 and March 8. They sent an updated receipt for February 8, but not for March 8, so I can’t really figure out what it’s for. But whatever it may be,…

Say My Name, Say My Name (Picking Baby Names)

  Who thought picking baby names would be so difficult? I’m on my sixth month and we still haven’t decided on a baby name yet. As I mentioned before, I seriously thought we were having a boy so I never really bothered on a name for a girl. We had several boy names lined up…

My Pregnancy Tracker (via Excel)

I can’t seem to live without MS Excel. I use it a lot at work, and I use it a lot when I get home, since I set up all my financial records (budget, loan payments, etc) in Excel as well. On a sudden whim, I thought it would be interesting to know how my…

Three Prayers for 2012

Every New Year’s Eve, we have a service at our church here in Singapore from ten in the evening until midnight. Members would share about what they have been through and what God has done in their lives in the past year, and what they’re looking forward to in the coming year.     Last year, during…

What a Way to Celebrate the Day

October 24 has always been a special day for my hubby and I, because it was on October 24, 2005 when he first told me about his feelings for me. I wanted to celebrate the day, as we usually do on the 24th of every month. Instead, I called my gynecologist at Gleneagles Hospital for another emergency…
