Just a couple of things I wanted to say about @lifebeyondgrades before it launches on Friday. We are not saying grades aren’t important. We are saying grades aren’t everything. Some kids are just not academic, they should all try their hardest, but should not be made to feel worthless or insecure if they don’t get that A. We aren’t saying don’t study or be excellent, we’re saying don’t let their grades define your kids. All kids are different. Yes, they should study hard, but we can also nurture their natural talents. There are so many ways in which our kids can thrive and succeed. There’s a long way yet to go - we are but one parent-led movement. We certainly encourage other parents to get involved and start their own causes and groups. Mindset shift won’t happen overnight, but we can drive this towards change, one parent at a time. Until one day we reach the tipping point #LifeBeyondGrades #dreambiglittleone #lovemom🌈 #futureready #motherhood #sgmoms #sgkids #🇸🇬 Pic @littlebigshots.sg

Empowering little girls to dream big ... #FUTUREGIRL What started as an idea with mommy Amber @leialauren to create a collection of Ts that break gender stereotypes and inspire little girls, became a collaboration with #PedderonScotts ! We hope you like these Mini and Me Ts that we’ve designed (all come in blush pink, but also in grey and white) - and most importantly, it’s not just for little girls. It’s for everyone, including the men and boys in our lives that support, respect and uplift the girls of today - to become the women of tomorrow. AND it’s not just for girls, we uplift all little dreamers... (that’s why the Ts are unisex)! Launching in @pedderonscotts on 13 September #girlpower #dreambig #wowensupportingwomen #leialauren #sgmoms #motherhood #momlife #strongwomen #rebelmoms #bossbabes

I can never get enough shots of the boys, and now this playful new studio concept by the folks at @thestudioloft has arrived! This gorgeous Circus set lets them be acrobats, strongmen, tricyclist and lion tamers! Single sessions start at $80 @littlebigshots.sg but with sets changing every month, you can consider a 3 month package with all digital prints back for $588. This isn’t an ad, btw, those of you who know us will know that Maryann and her team have shot both boys since they were newborns (swipe to see)! I really cherish all the images we’ve taken along the way, and look forward to creating more fun, fantasy images. May their childhood live forever, in these glorious moments that capture the dimples, their joy and innocence - now I can visit them here in these photos forever! #momlife #sgmoms #sgkids #studioloft #kidsphotography

How do we raise “original” children, those creative, unconventional thinkers who when they grow up, may just change the world? I shared an article in my profile, which made me feel a little sad. So much of my childhood, I grew up in a world that told me to “stop doodling, stay inside the lines, do it the way I told you to do it, and stop asking why”. I was a quiet, forgetful, dreamy child. Not disruptive or rebellious, but non-conforming. Instead of encouraging me in areas where I shone- Writing and Art, I was asked to pay attention to areas I was weak - Math, Mandarin, Science. I agree a certain basic rigour is needed in education, to give you the fundamentals to build your creativity and ideas upon - but perhaps what was lacking was the focus and encouragement on what I was actually GOOD at, as well. That would have helped in building confidence and nurturing my strengths. What I would ask, is for parents to pay attention - to your own child. Do you know what his/ her strengths are? What he/she is actually good at, or enjoys doing, or is passionate about. Or do they spend so much time in tuition, conforming to what you wish, that you have no idea what, or who, your child really is? People usually excel at what they’re passionate in, and success follows. This is a magazine cover and article from 2014, but I’ll always cherish it - because it proves to me that “Little Dreamers become Visionaries when they grow up”. I always felt inadequate or slightly stupid because of my grades, I never had confidence for decades. I harboured an “imposter syndrome” and much of that insecurity came from not doing well in school. Now imagine, that three little numbers (a PSLE score) has the power to affect a child for the next thirty years of her life, and tread gently... for you step upon young dreams. Your child is more than what’s in a report card, there are many paths, not only the one you think is best. I do this for my dreamy little boy Tyler, and for all little originals and dreamers out there @lifebeyondgrades #lovemom🌈 #lifebeyondgrades

On the Jade Carpet at last night’s @crazyrichasians premier! What an amazing film for our country, so proud to see how beautiful our home looks in the movie. Unbelievable that this movie is now No1 in the US Box Office! Anyway the movie is a must-see, well-made, with a great cast, and it captured the humour and nuances of the satirical novel by @kevinkwanbooks It’s true it doesn’t “represent” Singapore in all its cultural diversity or portray “real life”, but let’s remember this movie isn’t a documentary, it wasn’t designed to “showcase” Singapore. However, the little red dot benefits nonetheless from basking in the bright blaze of the spotlights. Go enjoy the movie for what it is, a delightful rom-com set in our beautiful city, with a super-talented Asian cast (my one regret... Tyler was offered the role of Ring Boy at the Wedding and I wasn’t able to do it as I was traveling)! Go catch the movie! 🍿 #crazyrichasians (Here, I’m supporting local in this @jokilda brocade jumpsuit - perfect for premier and the after-party!)

I could have been walking in soulful solitude, hair flying in the breeze, staring off into the sea (maybe another 20 takes to get it perfect!) but motherhood forever changes your life, there’s always someone else occupying the centre of your world. Some may see it as shackles, tying you down, but I see it as a bond. You get out of your children what you put in - not in money, but in Time and Love. I know I’ll never walk this world alone again, but I love having this little travel buddy for life!

This is my third time back to Yaly Couture, which was the tailor recommended by Nam Hai when I was there 5 years ago. I’ve had some hits and misses, so I’m going to share some tips. First, they have a wide array of fabric, you can choose from their selection or bring your own, and they’ll only charge you for tailoring. For the safest outcome, you can bring an actual sample (eg. A favourite top, dress or pants, and they can copy exactly). The next best thing is to show them photos of clothes you like. They also have a catalogue, but I find it helps if you have a clear idea of what you want. The third thing to do, is to look at the fabrics and when you fall in love with one, like this green fabric with red flowers, I immediately knew I wanted it to be some kind of cheongsam. It helps if you know what looks best on you, eg straight or A-Line, mini or midi length. I designed this cheongsam style dress with flutter sleeves, a high-waisted cut-out, a peplum (to hide my food baby) and a midi-length. Expect to do 2-3 fittings to get everything perfect. The first fitting will seem alarming, everything might be too loose, tight or the proportions wrong. But they fit the dress on your body, and by the second session, everything is almost perfect. A third fitting may or may not be needed, but it’s good to budget in time for it, just in case, especially if you’re getting quite a few things made. I paid US$85 for this dress, including fabric and lining. I also made lace pencil skirts, US$45 for knee length and US$65 for long, blouses about US$30-40, and got them to copy my favourite wide-legged pants US$55. I’ve also made evening gowns that cost about US$120-US$140. Lastly, you can also bring your clothes for alterations. I had a lot of online purchases that needed minor alterations, eg waist, length, they charged me only for tailoring cost US$3. For a complicated piece which included taking in the shoulder, making the waist higher, I paid $10. They’ll designate a customer service rep to work with you, do ask for one who speaks fluent English. Hope that helps! #hoian #vietnam #wanderlust

We went on a sunset cruise yesterday, and were charmed by the people, the toys (like this leaf windmill), headwear and “jewellery” one of the local crew made, all from a single palm leaf. We sailed out to see how the local fishermen fish with nets (Tyler caught a shrimp), and we got to try our hand rowing a small bamboo boat (See our IG stories!). We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves; he with his leaf toys and experiencing the different boats, and I in watching his delight in these simple pleasures #awholenewworld #wanderlust #travelwithkids #bubutravels #travelgram #travelphotography #instatravel #vietnam #hoian #JackTranTours

The locals love kids, you’ll find them welcome everywhere you go. There are beautiful beaches, boat cruises, cyclo rides, swimming pools. It’s pretty easy feeding kids here as the cuisine is similar enough to back home where you can find chicken rice dishes, pancakes, dumplings, most places have a kids menu. Old town itself is paved and can take strollers, although we didn’t need one this time- but beware of motorbikes even in the heritage areas which are closed off to traffic. The souvenir shopping is great - you can find trendy little straw and basket bags, hats, cute ao-dais for kids, all for about $10 or less. Taxis are cheap, most hotels have shuttles to Old Town (but I like to stay near there, as visiting the tailors usually requires return trips for fittings). There’s golf for daddy, spa and tailors for mommy, iced Vietnamese coffee (my favourite!) everywhere. I try not to bargain as it means less to me and more to them, just offer a flat fee for most things (100,000 dong is like US$5 and will get you everything from a cyclo ride from point A to B -taxis can’t enter the heritage areas so these traditional rickshaws are handy when it’s hot- to a pair of traditional straw hats for us both), $15-$20 will feed us both at most restaurants in the tourist belt (one third if you dine where locals do). One tip on the weather, come in the cooler months and you’ll find 20 degree weather, it gets hot here just like back home, but because so much of Hoi An town can be explored on foot, the sunny, cool weather eg December to February makes it really pleasant! #wanderlust #travelgram #hoian #vietnam #bubutravels #familytravel

Better to have quality time with one, than be stressed out managing two! Someone asked if 40 trips at his age is too many... Hell, no. What’s “too much” travel? Who’s to say what’s “too much”? I think most kids in Singapore have “too much” tuition and enrichment, but that’s the choice of their parents. My kids travel because I do. This is how I enrich them. It’s all about life choices - many choose to spend their time and money on lessons and classes. I’ve chosen to spend my time and money taking them traveling. There are different paths for different kids - Ours is off the beaten path, exploring the great, wide world. Travel in the region isn’t inaccessible to most - a flight on Scoot to Vietnam costs less than what most parents spend on tuition lessons a month, there are many good hotel stays here also less than $150 a night - you don’t have to travel expensively to show your kids the world, nor judge or resent those who do. We make our own choices for our kids, I choose his big smile and his laughter and hugs and words at night, “You’re the best mommy in the whole wide world” ❤️ #wanderlust #travelwithkids #travelgram #positivity #bubutravels #vietnam #hoian #danang #lovemom🌈

I love Astroboy, as he reminds me of my boys, and she created this design to show him overcoming adversity. Thank you Cherin for helping me cut the nearly one-year waiting list for one of your painted artworks- check out her works at @simcherin to see what all the buzz is about! Can’t wait to share more with you on Cherin and her collaboration with @byndartisan (they have leather painting workshops) and my leather four-way bag (slide to see another one of the 4 ways to wear it) is a Bynd creation. I’m always happy to #supportlocal and today’s filming with @channelnewsasia made me proud to share the best of collabs between homegrown creatives!
