When you're not home on weekdays because of work, it helps to marry someone who has creativity to find her own interests and self dependent. Not in my case.

Europe is slower pace, so you get to appreciate the little things from nature. Like that breath of fresh air in the morning.

Parenting #53

It'd been two weeks since she on holiday in Vietnam. I missed her sound of voice.

I walk alone

I walk on this life journey alone. Life is like a sketch book, each page is blank, no lines, no rules. Use the lessons learnt of past pages to write the next chapter. Despite all the negative messages people say around you, don't listen to the voices in your head, but follow your intuition.

Food glorious food

The best thing about Singapore is definitely the food. Foreigners called them street food or food court. Locals called them hawker centre. They are cheap and delicious, but unhealthy.

In Asia cities people roam the street late into the night because there is lack of home comfort like privacy and air conditioning. So people leave work late and come home late.

Down to Earth

I can really relates to image. I'm a spaceman with no home, travel beyond and limitless. Who felt in love with a mermaid and the reality of evetyday life constraints, social intelligence, family and children.

Family

Balance between family and money is always on-going. In Asia there is more demand, more travels, more witty. Its takes up alot more energy and cutting into family time.
