A wise old owl sat in an oak,
The more he heard, the less he spoke;
The less he spoke, the more he heard;
Why aren't we all like that wise old bird?

We came across this classic nursery rhyme recently and I found it very apt. The rhyme teaches children the virtues of being quiet - i.e. to be seen and not heard. Just like an owl's behaviour of watching and patiently waiting when hunting its prey in the darkness of the night.

I have a t-shirt that says “Save a Tree for Tomorrow” and I wear it proudly because we did exactly that. It’s a tree (I call it “Big Tree”) right in front of our apartment, greeting us as we awake and shielding us while we sleep.

This sunny morning, was heading towards I12 Katong Mall, pushing my 13 month old daughter in her pram. She fell asleep just as it started drizzling, then raining and as the story goes, pouring. We were taking shelter in a bus stop, 30 mins of leisurely walk away.

It is Summer 1946 as the memories of war slowly fade along with the horrors
Ambitious, loyal and hopeful are the children we proudly name the Baby Boomers

Change arrives with Autumn 1965 as our Generation X face absent working parents
Well-educated and individualistic, they value relationships and build self reliance 

Winter 1980 ushers in the Millennials also known as Generation Y
Confident and optimistic, they embrace change with their eyes to the sky
