Late teeths, but likewise here they are...

A lot of things for Jace are abit late, definitely not due to nutrition "Jace is a big eater!" but because he is just like that. Over the years Jace have improved in his food selection. Now some of his teeth started to fall down and change.

Settler, OSIM, Katrina Birthday, Renter, Outbreak: Five for Friday

Friday of September 24, 2021

Maybe it is not been good for Five for Friday write-ups recently due to the busy work schedule with shifting and adjustments. Likewise this are my thoughts this month. Ok September is the official month we have shifted to the new place, and returned the old keys to Bryan. We also bought a new massage chair. We celebrated my wife's birthday. My two-cents of renting in Singapore. Learn more of Crash Course Outbreak playlist.


Settling to the New Place

Decision are made based on the available information and resource known during that time it was made...

This month we have moved house. New place. A bit smaller size. Fits the family. Peaceful. New view. More freedom. Opposite us is La Fiesta and Luxury Condominuims.


OSIM Massage Chair

One of the expensive furniture we have aside from an iphone...

This new chair is comfortable and is effective in clearing body pains. The chair has been fully utilized, we get like every other day massage. Joyce also liked this new massage chair.


Katrina's Birthday

My wonderful wife's birthday! Another year of fun and challenges...

We celebrated my wife's birthday on the new place. It was fun it was different. THe place was smaller but our family is together so that what matters most.


Moving house thoughts as a Renter

Basically owning a house or renting out...

As long as the price of the house is fairly reasonable vs the rental rates. Definitely having a permanent house is much better. For us who are foreigners having a non-permanent address is quite normal. Shifting house is troublesome but it also give a new perspective in life or at least in daily life.


Gerry's Grille Goodies

Yummy food during Katrina's Birthday...


Crash Course: Outbreak Playlist

The current pandemic gave new insights, technology and sadness to alot of people during this generation...

Sengkang Square Location, Pack Shift, Lala Move, Mama Birthday, Myths: Five for Friday

Friday of August 27, 2021

Lets see Sengkang square is really just beside the mall Compass one, Bus interchange and Sengkang MRT. Our new place is the most accessible place we have stayed in Singapore, unfortunately we were able to get to rent only around a less than 700sqft-ish flat.


Sengkang Square: Compass Heights Pros Location

New place and new home...

I have written some items about compass heights when I was searching a new place. This month is where we actually shifted house. So the first thing we enjoyed is the location. The place is really convinient for alot of things. Below the block is the mall compass one, two bus terminals (Sengkang and Compass)


Packing and Shifting

It took us a month of slow packing and less than 4 days of slow transfer...

The current 5 room flat is indeed big, with all our stuff I wouldn't be surprised that we took that much. We sold alot of items in carousell but still the amount we need to pack and transfer is really 8 years worth of stay. Shifting it was a mix of taxi and van type lalamovers. It was challenging and fun to say the least. It was a workout and a stressful period for me.


Lalamove: The one-stop movers and delivery personel

Moving house with the help of Lalamove...

Ok the photo is not from lalamover but another van beside mine. I didn't get the chance to take a photo since we are always on the rush to transfer stuff. Over lalamove is a great service.


Mama Birthday

She would have been 65 this year...

This month is mama's birthday August 7. I can't believe that she is gone. I have been away from home for a long time. I only go back one days once a year ever since I started working in Singapore. Life with mama when I was an adult was indeed short.


Crash Course: Earth Mothers and Rebellious Sons

Legends of mother earth...

Talking about Earth Mothers and their children. We'll start with Gaia, and her son Kronos, who had a classic childhood rebellion, and castrated his father. We'll also get into Kronos’s son Zeus, who would go on to dethrone his father. We’ll talk about Norse mythology, too, and look at the family that created the world, and worked together to make people.
