You know how they say that in life, you must not only love what you do but do what you love too? Well, not everyone gets the chance to. Some people never get to do what they love and some end up not loving what they do. While at times it might be due to unforeseen or forced circumstances, more often than not, it is because we are afraid to make that first step, to pursue an underlying passion, to turn our lives upside down and have the courage to detour halfway along our life journey.
It felt the same way when I decided to quit my job and become a housewife and then a stay-at-home mum. I didn't know where life was going to take me, I didn't know if I would be happy, I didn't know if it was the right choice, I didn't know what future had in store for me.
Nearly six years later, I look back and can only be thankful that things happened the way they did. Somehow, I am one of the lucky ones who get to do what they love and love what they do. May was an exciting month for me, as a mum and as a blogger, I'll tell you why.
After recovering from those bouts of illnesses, we were eager to get our fun-filled weekends back and went exploring parts of Singapore that we had never seen before.
We lunched at Satay by the Bay and took a stroll along the boardwalk. I loved how cute the girls looked in their matching Hello Kitty polo dresses!
It was the first time we visited the Far East Organization Children's Playround which seeks to combine nature and adventure and is suitable for kids from 1-12 years old. Look, we discovered that Ariel can now hang from the bar with both feet off the ground, woohoo! Way to go, darling!
River Safari - Asia's first river-themed zoo and aquarium. Considering how much these two love animals, I guess it was a worthwhile bet to become Friends of the Safari.
Finally, after months of eagerly waiting, we also watched the final edit of our first ever TV commercial. Thanks to Canon and Reel Loco, there were some very precious moments captured on film that I will hold dear for life. It was also such an enriching and learning experience for us and I will share more behind the scene pictures and write-up with you soon!
Yesterday, one of my dreams came true when I met Nick Vijucic at his press conference. He has been one of the biggest inspirations in my life and I often use his story to motivate Angel to never give up and remind her that attitude is altitude.
Are you loving what you do and doing what you love too? I sure hope so!
