These are the 10 questions from Stacey and my answers.
1. What’s one thing you’d rather pay someone to do than do yourself? Why?
I used to think that getting help with managing my household is not very glamorous.
Afterall, it is my house and everything inside belongs to me. I feel like I need to do most of the things in order to be responsible.
However, my husband aided the change in my thinking. Now, I say, "Hey, getting help for the household could be a good idea afterall. Anyway, who doesn't want a "promotion" in the office? What I need to learn is good people management skills to manage a helper instead of actually doing the housework. This is quite nice!"
2. Do you have a favorite story from your childhood that you read to your kids?
As a child, I love the story of Cinderalla. The power of her fairy godmother captivated me.
However, I did not share this story with my boys, only my girl.
3. What is your fondest dream that you have yet to accomplish?
Hmm.. Should I tell or should I not? I would like to own a profitable business which could give me recurring income to feed me an entire life. Very practical but secretly, I dreamt of being a botanist or a "safari-keeper" working in wild life parks taking care of animals.
4. What are five things that you like to do for just you?
I love to visit spas for massages. I am a shopaholic if I have the resources. I have of late started my exercise regime again. Reading without interruption, painting and writing are all things which I like to do just for myself.
5. What is one guilty pleasure you enjoy too much to give up?
This is so cute! Confession time: I am guilty of eating too much chocolates. Even when I have a sore throat, I have to eat some as dessert. ;P
6. Tell me about your dream vacation?
My dream vacation would be to visit the castles in Loire Valley in France again. We visited it with our children a few years back and they were so beautiful.
I was swept away by the culture and the stories behind each castle. The childen enjoyed the beautiful setting with lots of nature and greenery.
7. What type of books are your favorite kind to read? What is your favorite book/author?
I love parenting books best now. My favourite book is The Five Love Languages By Gary Chapman. It resonates with how I parent my children and I like the way he emphasizes love as a basis for disciplining children.
8. I love music, from all genre's...What are the top 5 songs that are rockin out your playlist?
Katy Perry 'Roar', Elvis Costello 'She', Christina Perri 'A Thousand Years', Norah Jones 'Don't Know Why' and most of late Leslie Cheung's cantopop.
9. What are some of your favorite places to take your kids in and around Singapore?
Sentosa beaches, Botanic Gardens to play frisbee/football and West Coast Park to fly kites and inline skate!
10. What is your favorite dessert?
Chocolates~ Yo, yum..
