Supporting hearing impaired drivers

As we end the last day of November and head into the last month of 2019, and a time where fake news and hypocrisy have fueled protests and riots around the world.

With so much negativity, I wanted to start December … positive.

Your next cab ride in Singapore could be driven by a hearing impaired driver. Another excellent example of inclusivity.

For those not familiar with Grab, it is a Singapore based transportation company. In fact I’ll be making a post soon on the Singapore taxi scene for would be travelers to Singapore. Stay tuned!

Timeless X’mas ornaments

Finally I can take out the Christmas decorations!

Most have been with me for a long time. And each ornament has at least a story to tell. When, where, how we got them. For example the 101 Dalmatian dog was a happy meal toy from McDonald’s SINGAPORE, when the movie was released in 1996. I’ve kept it well, albeit some yellowing. It used to light up if you pressed the button on top of the red bow. Something I did every day in the run up to Christmas each year until the battery went flat. The second photo of a pair of Christmas bells were handmade by my grandma more than 5 years ago.

I still go window shopping for new ornaments every year. Though mostly just browsing. It’s the best way to soak in the festive atmosphere and get decorating tips from shops filled with Christmas trees, advent calendars, bells, angels, snow globes, etc …and merry Christmas songs. It’s a truly magical feeling!

Thank you for coming to read my story.

Chocolaty gut helpers

I’m one of those people who have to consume more fiber foods to maintain regular bowel movement. For us with digestive problems, these “good” bacteria help to keep our guts healthy. And with a rich chocolate taste, what not to like😉.

10 billion lactic acid bacteria in a resealable bag

Probiotic lactic acid bacteria (乳酸菌)in foods and supplements are thought to be safe for most people, though some people with immune system problems or other serious health conditions and allergies shouldn’t take them. Check with your doctor if you’re unsure and always eat in moderation!
