I just re-read the first few blog posts on this site. I can’t believe that was so many years ago. All good and bad things must come to end. I don’t have the time to keep posting on this website. This is likely my last blog post. Looking back, I’ve grown up a lot in the last 4.5 years. Our lives will never be perfect but at least we’re working on it.

Yes, school holiday again. The plan? Homework. Yes, this week is going to be homework week. I would like them to finish at least 70-80% of the homework before our vacation. I told them the sooner they finish the homework, the earlier we could start our trip. That itself is a good motivation

This past weekend was an eye opening for me. Celina and I went shopping on friday afternoon at the CTS. We were at the food court resting when the incident happened. I didn’t pay attention to the young woman sitting the table in front of us. She was by herself.
All in a sudden two older women appeared in front of her (also in front of us) yelling at the young lady. Soon I learn that this young lady must be a mistress of one of the two older women’s husband. They kept yelling at her. The young lady tried to leave and that was the time her hair was pull. I saw she got slapped and kicked.
Some where along the young lady and I exchanged an eye contact. All I saw was helplessness in her. I wanted to say something but Celina stopped me. A security guard came and during the confrontation, she got away.
The moral of the story though is to solve a problem by going to the root cause, not after the symptoms. If the husband is cheating, the wife should have confronted the husband instead of trying to beat the mistress up. If the problem isn’t resolved, there is always another mistress tomorrow.

The love story is too complicated for young children to understand but too boring for grown up to chew. Although it has the same title and the same animation characters as the original movie, it feels totally different. My advice — No!
