It had indeed been a quiet night
I had totally enjoyed it…
away from everything, if the episodes before that day hadn’t happened
I am sure… my happiness would be more genuine than what I tried to be that day
Hi Santa, I have been good… If I put Peace and Healing in my Wishing Socks, would you grant my wish tonight?
For some mysterious reasons
Christmas would never be peaceful as long as I was in a relationship
I would shy away from relationships during that period, or enter a state of emotional turbulences as Christmas approaches
I thought last Christmas would be different
After all, what can actually go wrong if you are with a lifetime-buddy right?
I tried to catch a glimpse of positivity amongst the negativity
“X” was threading on his toes and hoping that things don’t go wrong
But… what was meant to go wrong, still went wrong
The good, the bad, and the bossy of dating an alpha-female.
Being an alpha-female is a lifestyle. Nothing is sexier than a woman who is not only strong, independent and a total badass, but also isn't afraid of going after what she wants.
We’re all so used to the grandiose tales of love in the movies — running through a crowded airport, sending love letters every single day for ten years, leaving one’s entire life behind — that anything less than trial by combat just seems lazy.
But Korean artist “Puuung” is intent on changing that narrative. “Love is something that everybody can relate to. And Love comes in ways that we can easily overlook in our daily lives. So, I try to find the meaning of love in our daily lives and make it into artwork,” she writes.
With her beautifully-drawn illustrations, Puuung reminds us that when it comes to love, it’s the little things that matter.
Puuung’s works can be found on her grafolio. Here are some of our favorites:
It’s been the longest time since I last met up with T.T
With all his hectic business flying schedules, it’s almost impossible to catch him in town at the right time
Still… I am glad he made the effort to keep in touch
and I… :P made the effort to free up my calendar whenever possible if he rings
I always thought I am weird, but after reading this, I realised I am just an ordinary girl in an extraordinary situation I had been criticise for being different, but after reading this, I learnt that I am just behaving to the best I can in a not so mainstream situation Thank you Finding Joy for helping me reconcile within myself To all fellow Single Mums, a good read to share
If you're a single mum and ever wonder if you're the only one who questions whether you're doing a great job as a mum, you need to read this.
Sometimes I wish I could just talk freely about what it is like to be a single parent.
I don’t like to. I like to hide, honestly, behind the cloak of busy. And I keep myself moving and moving and moving trying to numb those areas in life where I don’t really want to talk about.
And then sometimes I find myself looking at others and smiling and nodding and then thinking no one wants to hear about that, right? Where’s the joy? Isn’t it more interesting talking about the next project or holiday or what we’ll be making for dinner and smiling and nodding and doing the half interested wave at each other?
And then sometimes I stand in my room and I look around and I feel so utterly and completely alone.
I had always been very particular about dental habits
Visiting the dentist at least twice a year is mandatory for me
In fact, I had been bringing my Boy for dentistry visits since as young as 5years old (before the school start providing dentistry services)

There came a point in time, multiple points in fact, when I feel inadequate as a Mum
It hurts me when I realised I could not give you all that You want, all that You Need
No matter how I thought I could have done better, I failed You again and again
to the mother of the screaming child at the scholastic book fair,
i see you in the library of the elementary school i teach at. and... your 4-year-old child is screaming at you. he is blood-curdling screaming right in your face. that's why i'm looking at you. that's why everyone is looking at you. he's so mad that you won't buy him that brand new $39.99 lego star wars book with the included lego guys that he "need need neeeeeeds" to have. he's putting up a really big scene. i heard him all the way down the hall. he's yelling and punching your legs as he writhes in emotional pain on the floor. he's crying and crying, screaming how mean you are and how rude that you won't give him what he wants. his world is caving in. he just told you you're the worst mom ever. more people are looking at you now. the lady at the register is frozen, not sure how to react. everyone is watching. just waiting and wondering how you're going to handle him. he's making a scene, and that scene is getting louder and more uncomfortable to watch.
A woman is having an affair during the day while her husband is at work.
Her 9 year old son comes home unexpectedly, sees them and hides in the bedroom closet to watch.
The woman’s husband also comes home. She puts her lover in the closet, not realizing that the little boy is in there already.
The little boy says, “Its dark in here.”
The man says, “Yes, it is.”
Boy ~ “I have a baseball.”
Man ~ “That’s nice.”
Boy ~ “Want to buy it?”
Man ~ “No, thanks.”
Boy ~ “My dad’s outside.”
Man ~ “OK, how much?”
Boy ~ “$250?
In the next few weeks, it happens again that the boy and the lover are in the closet together.
Boy ~ “Its dark in here.”
Man ~ “Yes, it is.”
Boy ~ “I have a baseball glove.”
The lover remembering the last time, asks the boy, “How much?”
Boy ~ “$750?
Man ~ “Fine.”
A few days later, the father says to the boy, “Grab your glove, let’s go outside and have a game of catch.”
The boy says, “I can’t, I sold my baseball and my glove.”
The father asks, “How much did you sell them for?”
Boy ~ “$1,000?
The father says, “That’s terrible to overcharge your friends like that…that is way more than those two things cost. I’m going to take you to church and make you confess.”
They go to the church and the father makes the little boy sit in the confession booth and he closes the door.
The boy says, “Dark in here.”
The priest says, “Don’t start that crap again.”
