Welcome to our blog! Ling is a former biology teacher but now on adjunct-teaching, and myself – CY – currently working in a tertiary institution. The both of us have been together for a while, and were married in November 2006. Our daughter, Hannah, joined our family in June 2009 and she was joined by Peter in June 2013.

Our blog entries themes have evolved over the years, including phases where we ranted of living and working in Singapore, dining at foodcourts, recipes when cooking at home, and the current general focus now – as young parents, technology, photography, and of stuff about our home. This web site has been around since early 1996, and I’ve been writing my reflections and muses here since that time.

Our web site is privately own, paid for and maintained. We don’t get sponsored products or services to review – whether it’s our vacations/holidays we take, our dining experiences, or tech toys that we buy. So when we like something and say so, it’s really because. Similarly if we say that something didn’t work for us, it’s exactly just that. We are not influenced by any commercial agencies and are not obligated to say anything other than our genuine and earnest perspectives – though we do strive to say so politely and responsibly.

We’re glad to have you visit our site. Do enjoy your stay here, and God bless!
