Re: ME TIME!

DD2 classmates were twins. Their 小名 is 左左 and 右右. Their mother said it was because one was on the left and the other was on the right in her tummy. So cute!

Re: ME TIME!

Hubby and the girls went for their weekly sports activity while I am their part time security guard by guarding their bags. Still cracking my brains on thinking Chinese names for my baby girls. Which characters do you start with for female names?Any suggestions? Why not follow your elder children?

Re: 97% of Singaporean students are enrolled in tuition in 2

Even if parents do flash cards and read story books with kids, it is also a form of enrichment. Agree with Zappy that different methods suit different kids. It is also a matter of prioritisation of time and money. I do not stick with one centre but make adjustments according to my child's progress a...

I think so. For working parents, they outsource to tutors. The disadvantaged group are those that parents cannot teach and also cannot afford tuition.

Re: HDB and Condo

Janet,

I think the fastest way to sell a property is to price it realistically. Can gauge from the latest transaction and listings in the various property platform.

When I tried to rent out my hdb flat, I price it $100 below the asking rental from most landlord. Manage to rent out within 2 weeks.
