I started my mom blog when I became a mom. My husband and I both live in Singapore, far away from all relatives. As a FTWM, juggling work and family is a daily challenge. We rely heavily on each other and on our helper. In today’s society, there is a lot of pressure for moms to be a perfect mom and do it all.
Here is sharing all my personal posts of my hopes and fears on being a mother. I hope that by reading this Singapore mom blog, my motherhood experience will uplift you and provide you with a sense of camaraderie.
My Motherhood Experience
- It’s not just you. Mom Brain is a thing and it’s frustrating
I used to be the one who could go to multiple back to back meetings without taking notes and still remember the details of everything better than the colleague who did.
- Don’t forget who you were before you became a mom
For those of us who forget who we were as individuals before we got promoted to mom
- I make a better employee as a mom
My take on why moms make better employees
- Here’s why I don’t hang out as much anymore :(
A mom’s life is too busy for friends.
- Why it’s so hard to work late as a working mom
It’s not that moms don’t want to. They can’t.
- Being a mom is hard sometimes
I get you. I feel it too.
- Don’t rush through the early days with your newborn
Dedicated to first time mummies, don’t make the mistake I did
- To every exhausted mom out there…

- Do you feel like a mom who is always one step behind?
Tired of having to play catch up all the time? Me too. :(
- Why moms are always tired but they choose to stay up late anyway
Solitude is golden. Enough said.
My Life in Melbourne
