The girls’ art teacher recently bought a robotic vacuum cleaner. Being a full-time teacher and tutor without the help of a maid, she has invested on many household gadgets to help her in the household chores. The robotic vacuum cleaner is programmed to vacuum the floor twice a day and a technician from the company will go to her house to service the robot every month. I am tempted to get the robot too! When we check out the robot next week, I will also check out a sound choice karaoke system which I am also very tempted to buy so that my girls and I can karaoke every night during the school holidays! 🙂

My blissful world came crushing down during a routine well-baby check up when Alycia was about 6 months old. She was suspected of having Hip Dysplasia or clicky hips. If not treated, this could lead to serious problem with one’s gait and position of the legs on the hip socket. For months, I google searched for an answer and prayed fervently that Alycia’s hips would be healed without having to go through any invasive medical treatment. The only treatment was that she had to wear double diapers 24/7 to ‘push’ the legs nicely back into the socket. 3 months later, after an ultrasound scan, the consultant orthopaedic confirmed that Alycia’s hips were aligned and we need not have to see him anymore. God is indeed great!
My dad and mum still wear their wedding rings on their fingers. And it’s been 42 long years they are married to each other. My dad wears two rings on his fingers – a wedding ring on this left ring finger and a green ring that looks like a military ring on his other ring finger. My hubs and I do not wear our wedding rings. Though I love wearing rings, it is just not practical for me to wear them 24/7 as I wet my hands all the time. The same goes for hubs who works in the food catering industry.
