Many want to write a bestseller, I just want to have an app to call my own. It happened this very day with "xpressFIVE Chai Coaching edition" (intro video below).
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 is the story of Big Tree the past 500 days:
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.
