Based in Singapore, I am gifted in the art of nagging and a caffeine addict who enjoys messy play, outdoor fun and a good book. I blog regularly at www.beanienus.blogspot.sg where I pen down my parenting thoughts, share my love for food (and cooking) and my (sometimes) creative moments during my home-learning sessions with the kiddo.

Dear Dumpling...
Dear
Dumpling, As it
creeps closer to my birthday, I usually get into a more reflective mode and I would
look back at the year that has zipped by. One thing that has stood out over

- {GIVEAWAY!} One of E.B. White’s most popular creations, Charlotte’s Web is a beautiful tale of love and friendship. The story centres on Wilbur, a runt pig, and Charlotte, a barn spider. Having been adapted and produced both as a cartoon and a movie, I am pleased to share that The Little Company (part of Singapore Repertory Theatre) will be bringing this story to stage! I have a family package of 4 tickets to give away! http://beanienus.blogspot.com/2016/09/giveaway-charlottes-web-by-singapore.html

For parents who are keen to try Art out, I do not even know where to begin on the great things Art does for children. Besides improving on areas such as fine motor skills and focus, Art empowers children to exercise their imagination and creativity. It allows children to have a means to express themselves and allow the brain to make connections in ways we cannot imagine... http://beanienus.blogspot.com/2016/06/raising-bar-heart-studio-june-holiday.html
