Monthly Reflections 0704

It's another month with one third of the year gone.

For April, my achievements are:

  • Submitted income tax claim before 15/4 deadline.
  • Settled web hosting selection. In the course of switching to wordpress.
  • Submitted final insurance claim for Lawrence on 'Total Permanent Disability' ground to Great Eastern.
  • Brought mum to Modern Beauty at Toa Payoh and both of us had our facial done there. It was the first time for mum.
  • Finally settled the application for the maid and she is now at my mum's place.
  • For Art Outreach, shared with the students of Pei Tong, Jurong and Methodist Girls primary schools on public sculpture and art fundamental 1.
  • On Good Friday evening, attended the 1st Friday Writers Corner of The Society of Singapore Writers. Shared with those present on Nurturing Kids on Literacy Appreciation.
  • Met the Chinese scholar from Cedar Girls' Sec Sch. Her name is Li Jing. Had an outing with her to Changi Village on 8/4, Yulin's birthday. On the following weekend, my 2 younger girls had table-tennis and badminton with her at The Civil Service Club. Last Friday, invited her to our house to have a home-cooked meal.
  • Had my regular monthly Reiki session on 14/4. This time round, all the 5 kakis turned up and we sure had a good time 'roasting' each other.
  • Brought Lawrence for his quarterly check-up at Toa Payoh clinic on 18/4. He lost another kg. Sure need to work harder to reduce further.

  • Accompanied my mother-in-law on 2 occasions to SCH for her regular check-up.
  • Managed to enrol 5 students for the self-improvement courses with Mindchamps this month.
  • Took the written exam on Education Success Coach last night. Although there were 40 multiple-choice questions, it sure was a tough paper.
