Thomas the Train

As the kids grow older, the differences between boys and girls become more and more obvious!

Nicole is just more 'girly' and she likes to play with dress-up, makeup and Barbie.

Nathan just loves his Trains! Whenever he see ones, he just goes - "Choo...Choo...Chuga..Chuga...Choo...Choo!!!"

thomas the train

We spent some time alone with him this week, and we brought him to the toy store.

Nathan paced up and down the toy store, and stopped at the Thomas the Train section. He examined every item, that he could get his hands on!

Mummy just couldn't believe his love for trains ... When we left the toy store, she bought him his first "Thomas the Train" toy set.

Here's a video, that expresses Nathan's love for trains...

By the way, do remember to vote for me in the Blogger's Choice Award ... Thank you for your votes in 2008, now this new vote will be for 2009!

Christmas with the Leaders

We had our 1st party at our new place over the Christmas holidays, and it was a real blast!!!


We had great food, thanks to Edmund Tan - and what made it better was the chocolate cake. It's a real steal at $28, and much better than many of the cakes that are sold at the shops! If you want chocolate cake, his sister has got my recommendation!

We started the games at 9pm but, I did not know that so many of the leaders were fans of "The Little Nyonya" (A MediaCorp 8 Chinese Serial that runs on weekdays). In fact, I had to cast out the "Nyonya" addiction, by turning off the TV during the commercial break. :)

The games were fun, as our creativity was tested using Plasticine. However, I think the most challenging part of the game was not molding the Plasticine, but trying to decipher the instructions from our games master! (He is not very clear with his instructions)

We all had fun with the Christmas gift exchange, and I am sure many of us got the gifts that we wanted! The speeches that came with every gift was also very encouraging and funny as well (Zhifu's 6 pack present from Tian Yi was the funniest!)

xmas party 1

Many Thanks to the leaders for making this party possible, as it was mainly due to their hard labour, that made the house so clean and homely!

xmas party 2

Looking forward to our Year End Countdown together, where we will get to fellowship and close the year together!

Christmas Eve

It's Xmas Eve and I am looking forward to our services tomorrow.

The children are excited as well, as it means one day closer to opening their presents! (We are trying to teach them that, good things can wait! :))

Was looking at some of the old videos (about Christmas) and old articles, such as the one I posted on Santa Claus.

It's like a walk down memory lane...and the blog has certainly grown since the early days...

One of the Videos I featured last year was on the 12 days of Christmas...It's really funny...Click here to watch it! (It's the 2nd video on the post!)

The makers of the same video, made another parody called 'Single Bells' (Based on Jingle Bells, of course!). Merry Christmas!

Candlelight Services in City Harvest Church

We had a great time at the Candlelight Services over the weekend!

IMG_2154It was really a wonderful sight seeing the whole of Singapore Expo Hall 8, lighted up by the candles we were holding.

The Best part of the service was when my dad responded to the altar call and accepted Jesus as his personal Lord and Savior.


If you missed the Candlelight services over the weekend, you got to catch the Xmas drama on Christmas Eve and Day.

We will be having services in Jurong And in Expo.

Timings are:

24th Dec - 330pm, 530pm (Both in Jurong), 730pm (Expo)

25th Dec - 10am, 1230pm (Both in Expo), 330pm (Jurong)

It will definitely be fun and entertaining!

Hope to see u there!

Straight No Chaser – A Cappella

Christmas is just round the corner, and everyone is getting into the holiday mood.

We had one of our Christmas CG meetings last night, and we hunted high and low for our Xmas Carols.

At that moment, I remembered about this 10 men accapella (Singing without instruments) group, which I stumbled upon last year. The group is called Straight No Chaser, and they were a Youtube Sensation in 2007, with over 1 million hits!

Here's a video of 1 of their songs:

Cool Right! It all started when they were going to have a class reunion, and they posted some old videos of themselves singing in college. People liked it so much, that it became a hit on Youtube!

This just shows the power of the Internet and mass media!

Straight No Chaser just launched a Christmas Album, and it seems to be the perfect CD for this Christmas. I went to the shops at the Suntec Area and I was disappointed, as they did not carry the CD at all.

I was thinking of ordering a copy from the States. Only thing is that, it will only arrive after Xmas! (Who will be in the mood to listen to carols after Xmas)

I made a call to HMV and they happened to have a few copies. That's great news, as it means that I can save on my postage and shipping! Yaah!

Looks like for the next few days, I will be getting into the Xmas mood even more...as I listen to my new CD :)

A New Chapter


Check out the glorious mess, as we packed our life into boxes and prepared for the big move!

This was our first move after staying in our previous place for the last 7 years. It proved to be a very hectic week for the whole family.

Nathan felt lost with the whole mess... (btw, the entire lot of boxes behind him are ALL toys!!!)

Lost boy

We are so glad that the leaders and members made the whole move easy for all of us! Couldn't have done it without their help!

In fact, we managed to move all our belongings to the new place in two full days! Quite a miracle!

Today is Day 3 in our new home. The Good News is that the kids have been sleeping well, but we are still trying to find holes and corners to stuff all our boxes.

I just tried walking to the kitchen in the dark, as I wanted to make myself a hot drink. Not as easy as it used to be! :)

There is still a lot of things to get used to... just now, I took a stroll round the estate in the middle of the night while my wife strummed the guitar. I wanted to find out how loud the noise would be, when I played the guitar in the middle of the night! Sounds like I can't really play very loud!

But I am very thankful for a great environment, and looking forward to my new adventures in the East!

Ho Yeow Sun is Home!

This morning at 5.26 am, Sun Ho landed at terminal 3 in Changi Airport.

She has been America for 1.5 years, recording her English Album, and Sun is back for a short holiday.

Coming Home

All of us are really happy to see Sun and Dayan, as it has been some time since they came back to Singapore. It is going to be a time for us to catch up with her as well! :)

Many of the fans came early in the morning to receive her, and when she was spotted at the arrival hall, everyone was really excited!

Here are some pictures of the fans:

Happy Birthday Popo!


Last Sunday was Popo's (Grandma) Birthday!

We celebrated by bringing Popo out for dinner and we had the cake cutting ceremony in our home.

Coming from the restaurant, we reached home before Popo. In a bid to surprise her, we turned off the lights in preparation for her arrival (So as to give her the idea that she arrived before us)

Check out Nicole's expressions as they came into the house!

coming in

Blowing cake

As usual, Nicole and Nathan loved blowing out the cake the most!

The Durian Cake was of course a hot favorite, as we got it from our private baker!

Happy Birthday POPO!!!

We love you!!!

Our New Home

In a few days time, the whole family will be kicking off on a new Adventure! We will be moving from our current home to a rented apartment in the East.

Financially, we have many great things to testify about.

When we got married, we wanted to stay near my parents and make use of the government grants. So we bought a flat in the central/northern area of Singapore. As this was a resale unit in a matured estate, we did not expect to make much of a profit when we eventually moved.

After 7 years, we felt that it was time to move.

Coming home from work one day in June, I felt that it was a 'kairos' time to sell the house. I told my wife about it, and we immediately contacted our property agent.

She evaluated the house, we did a bit of spring cleaning and painting...and within 2 weeks the house was sold!

The Good News is that we managed to make a healthy profit from the sale of the house! PTL!

Within the same month, newspapers reported that resale prices were at it's highest (Which means we got the best possible price for the house) and in the month following, the American and European economies reported a new wave of financial troubles with the collapse of Lehman Brothers.

The sale of the house was truly conducted at the best possible time!

On Mon, we started cleaning the new apartment.

There was really so much to do, and we really want to thank our cleaning crew for coming down to help us.

With their help, we managed to clean the house in a day! If not, it would have probably taken us at least a week!

This is what one of our chief workers looked like!


Many Thanks to: Jared, Jerblinn, Jin Lian, Suting, Shiying, David, Joanne, Amber, Stephanie, Delphine, Sandy, Bernice, Joycelyn, Tianyi, Richard, Alfred and Yan Ming.

You guys made cleaning the house FUN! :)

shifting house

Really appreciate all your help, considering many of you hardly clean the house at home. Love you guys!

We will be moving our furniture soon...will keep everyone updated!

New Milestone - Madagascar 2

Just the other day, one of my close buddies (Stanley Quek) who works in the financial industry did something really nice. He got into contact with a community organization called CityCare, and he invited about 100 orphans for a private screening of Madagascar 2 at Golden Village.


It was a really nice gesture on his part, and we were very happy to be invited as well.

The movie was extra significant for the kids, as it was Nicole's and Nathan's 1st visit to the pictures.

We got the kids ready for the new adventure, by making them take an afternoon nap.

Well, that kinda backfired a little: when they reached the theatre, they were still in their 'sleepy mode!'

We took out the camera, and got them to take some pictures outside the theatre. Check out their nice smiles! :(

I will not be sending this photo to KODAK!


The good news is, when the movie started, the kids began to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the movie.

Nicole likes the song - 'You got to move it, move it!' She kept on giggling to herself, as she saw the animals move to the Song.

Check out the Kids after the movie!

It was a whole new world!!!

After movie 1

They were laughing and hugging after the movie, and they even asked me to take pictures of them.

Proves that adults just can't live their lives based on emotions alone too: if we do, we become very irritable people!

(That was my revelation)

If these photos do not convince you that my little girl is happy. Check out the video of Nicole "Moving It".

Look out the back-up dancer (Nathan) trying to get into the act as well!!!

Before I go : I've got an announcement to make!!!

I will be removing my TAG BOARD / CBOX (The comment board you see on the right toolbar)

- Not because I don't value your feedback and comments. On the contrary, all Bloggers love feedback!

- It is because the tags don't stay with the posts, and they disappear after a while

- I would really appreciate it if you could leave me comments instead, by clicking the comments icon after every post!

- Leave your comments there and after I confirm they are not SPAM comments, they will appear at the bottom of the post.

- Will really appreciate your continual feedback, comments and VOTES!!! (Hee..Hee!)

Btw, do you know that the TAG BOARD is a very Asian thing? You don't find it on American Blogs!

Singapore ZOO - Kidzworld

The Zoo was really fun!!!

Natalie has been asking for details, so here goes...

Entry to the Singapore Zoo is really expensive, so we bought the Family Pass at $180 (which by the way is not cheap as well) But a normal ticket for an adult costs $18 and $9 for a child (>3 years). That would mean $63 dollars for the whole family.

In typical Singapore Kiasu style, we calculated that we must go to the zoo at least 3 times this year (that is if we want to recoup our losses!)

Making the investment was not that difficult, as we heard that the new kid's park was really FUN, and we were definitely NOT DISAPPOINTED!

Called the Zoo Kidzworld - The Water Play for the Kids was really really FUN!!! If you have kids, you got to bring them there!


I went in my T-shirt and Bermudas, and I thought that I would just let the kids play.

But in order to get them involved, I had to go in - And I was thoroughly soaked.

It was a water theme area and the kids were encouraged to run through obstacles with water spraying everywhere.

Nicole, the one who was more conservative, started off with the 'tame' water fountains.

This is Nic - Enjoying the water spraying at her 'butt'. She was so tickled by it, that she kept on laughing :)


Nathan was braver, and he was really gung-ho about running through the water arches.


He was running so fast, that he was practically dragging me!!! :)

I was thinking...."Oh No..Oh No...I did not bring any dry clothes...the things that we daddies must do..."

The best part of the park was that while you were playing, there is a BIG TUB that is filling up on top of the whole structure.

After about 5 mins, the TUB would be filled, and if you were near the structure, the TUB will tilt...and you will be totally drenched by an avalanche of water!!!

big 3

I brought Nathan in and it was really COOL!!!

The kids really loved the park and Daddy had fun as well. If you are looking for something interesting and FUN to do this weekend...HEAD DOWN TO THE ZOO!!!




Hope you enjoy the photos!!!

New Milestone - Family Outing with Nadine

Yesterday was a significant milestone for the whole family.

Usually when we go out, only Nicole and Nathan come along with us. But yesterday, our domestic helper was on leave, so all 3 kids went out with us.

That is the whole complete family!

Nadine was so well-behaved that bringing the 3 of them out was no problem at all!

Here's a picture of the whole family after our day-long adventure.

A new milestone

It was a day of great victory for the Tay family, and we felt like very successful parents. (I am sorry, give us a few moment to bask in our glory :) Haha)

Just to keep everyone updated, Nadine was also recently dedicated in church.

babydedication bannerThere were really a lot of babies dedicated, and we are so glad to be part of it.

Here are some photos:

baby dedication 1

 baby dedication 2

Nadine is now 7.5 months old and she can sit up unsupported and has started crawling. She is a very easy baby to take care of, and she is a favourite in the church nursery!

Ok! Gotta go... we're going to the zoo today!

Food Blogs - Good places to eat in Singapore

We decided to go out and eat tonight and my wife asked me to look for a good place to eat.

That used to be a real problem, as we are usually quite adventurous and always looking for somewhere new to eat. The good news is that with the Internet, there is always good resource close by!

If you are looking for somewhere cheap to eat, where quality is guaranteed, these are some good food blogs to check out.

1. Hungry Go Where hungry go where

This is a good site, where it allows you to search for places to eat via location.

You can search via budget, via credit card promotions and via cuisine

A Plus - the interface allows you to search for a place to eat via recommendation. For example, You can search under Supper, Girl's nite out, Family dining or Romantic First Date (Quite a useful function)

A Minus - The food recommended from this site may not always be fantastic - this is because it is dependent on reviews from consumers. There may be a few overly enthusiastic store owners selling their food behind the scenes.

But if you are really looking for quality, check out this food blog:

2. I Eat, I Shoot, I post!


Started and maintained by a medical doctor, this blogger has a real fondness for good food and photography.

Expect great shots of local favorites like Char Keow Teow, Wan Ton Mee and great recommendations for where to find them as well.

You will find a large selection of western and eastern cuisines in this blog, and this is the food bible that my wife and I depend on most of the time.

A Plus - This guy is a real food connoisseur, and he has been to almost every coffee shop and restaurant in Singapore, so expect great food from this guy!

A Minus - The interface is not as friendly, and you don't get a map to tell you how to get to the place.

Overall View - If you use these 2 blogs, you can never go wrong in looking for a bargain and quality food in Singapore.

Malaysian Fellowship Video on Asia Conference!

Hey Guys! U got to watch this video!

I was searching Youtube for videos about the Asia Conference and guess what I found?!?

A video done by Malaysian Medical Students who are studying in Moscow.

It's really interesting as it gives us a foreign perspective about the conference, and it's really fascinating to find out about our church from someone else's point of view. 

If you have got any videos about the conference, let's share it online as well....It's quite fun to relive those moments!

City Harvest Church - Cultural Mandate

Asia Conference finished formally for us on Monday with a meet-the-pastors sessions at Jurong West. Currently, the whole family is recovering from the late nights and we have been trying to get our body clock back in sync.

I felt the conference was a real breakthrough for us, as it solidifies the cultural mandate message for us.


Ps. Kong Hee kicked off the series with the 3 "Spaces".

The 1st Space  - The Church

The 2nd Space - The World

The 3rd  Space -  A place for society's elite in the world e.g. Bill Gates, Barack Obama, Steven Spielberg, David Beckham


We were reminded once again about how as a church, we love to isolate ourselves and stay within our 1st space. Although we were in the world, we are afraid to engage the world.



Dr. AR Bernard added to the sermon by speaking about:

John 17:13-16

13But now I come to You, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have My joy fulfilled in themselves.

14I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.

15I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.

16They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.

Through his messages, he reminded us that God did not say that he will take us out of the world, but instead we should 'insulate' ourselves from the world.

"Insulation" comes from our Spiritual Disciplines (Prayer, Fasting, Studying the Bible, etc...) and we should not be afraid of culture. In fact, Culture or Society (the world) is one of the greatest competitors for Christianity, as it creates mind-sets and attitudes against Christianity.

The crux of the whole conference is that we should redeem culture and transform it for the glory of God.  

Isolation is not the key, but insulation through the Word of God, and Penetration comes as we engage the world!

I think this message really embodies the message for us as a church!

That's why we are not afraid of loud music, colorful lights, hip-hop fashion and technology.

Let's keep on walking with the grace of God, as we INSULATE ourselves and engage culture!

Asia Conference at City Harvest Church

My apologies for not blogging the whole week, as we have been busy with the biggest Conference in City Harvest Church - The Asia Conference.

It has been a really tiring week for us, as we have sessions in the mornings, electives in the afternoons, and sessions again in the night.

The first night was really eventful for us as a family, as the kids were involved in the Parade of ministries. It is basically an event that showcases some of the ministries where our members can utilize their gifts.

The kids were involved, and I was looking forward to see them walk with the floats and the rest of Children's Church.

I stood in front and I managed to catch the parade on my blackberry bold (This explains why the video is grainy as well - This is not one of the strengths of the phone)

Aiya! Should have brought my digital camera to cover the event!

Anyway, what really caught me by surprise was Nathan sleeping through the whole event. He was sleeping in the stroller as the parade marched past!

My friend who was pushing him along, was pointing Nathan out to me as they went past (Looks like my boy can sleep through anything, as there were 8500 people in the hall - cheering and clapping)

The video ends with Nicole - I was shouting out to her, but there were so many people - I don't think she knew where to look!

I think it was quite a milestone for them - as they have a chance to be involved in something of this scale at such a young age. :)

Nicole and Nathan also enjoyed watching the video as I was uploading it. Nic kept on pointing out her friends to me, as they marched past!

Will blog more about the conference in my next post...But meanwhile enjoy the video.

Chocolate Donuts and Biscuits

The kids just love chocolate!

In fact, they love anything chocolate - from chocolate biscuit, chocolate donuts to hot chocolate.

What makes things worse is that they are really messy eaters.

Just look at Nathan:

cheeky nic

It doesn't help when the kids love the really messy varieties of Donuts as well.

They love it whenever we go to Suntec City, as it means Donut Factory.

donut factory

Nicole really loves the double chocolate donuts and she makes a real mess of herself as bites thru the donut.

The kids are also really smart about their food as well.

When I buy them their donuts, Nicole will request for certain strategic locations to eat her food.


What do I mean?!?

Nicole refuses to eat her DONUTS in the office Nursery!

The reason: if she eats it there, she would need to share it with the other kids (This is what we call true survival instincts!)

What can I say?

My daughter can really keng!!! (colloquial term for looking after herself)

Check out this video below, where you will see the power of chocolate biscuits:

Family Time - An antidote for Divorce

On a recent trip to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), something really struck me.

It was early in the morning, and I was having breakfast with some friends in a cafe. Looking across me, I noticed a family having their breakfast there as well.


They were having their Sunday Family Ritual - Breakfast with their morning papers and a DVD playing their child's favorite cartoon (So that she will be distracted).

Throughout the whole meal, not a single word was uttered, but they seemed to be in a little world of their own.

It struck me that - Quality time is very different for every family.

I tend to believe, that just being together is not enough, but intelligent, engaging conversation is needed. Spending time with my kids, means playing hide-and-seek or just bringing them somewhere new.

Whenever, I have the privilege to drive my boss (Ps Kong Hee), I am always amazed by his work ethic. He is always on the move and planning something new. Yet, despite his busyness, he always  finds time to call his wife SUN on the phone.

After preaching in Singapore every weekend, he is on the next plane out and off to spend time with his wife and children.

If a successful minister does not forego family time, how much more so for someone like me.

Before I go, If u like Korean Dramas, u will like this commercial. A bit long, but very touching.

Barack Obama - Interesting Perspectives

Last week, with the election of Barack Obama as the 44th US President - The sales of Newspapers went up, such that there were NO MORE PAPERS!!!


Why the extra copies?

People are keeping the newspapers as momentos, as this was a historic moment: The First African American US President.

Many just want to cherish the moment, and they just kept the newspapers!

Newspapers anticipated some extra demand, but they underestimated. The New York Times had printed 35 percent more than the usual number of copies for individual sale on Wednesday, an increase of about 150,000. Later, it printed 75,000 more.

As a Singaporean observer, it has been interesting to realize that America is truly a place where dreams can come true!

Hey! Who would have thought that a black man can actually become the most powerful man in the world!

Watching Obama galvanize a nation to such levels, has also made us active followers of the whole Presidential Campaign. Maybe someday, Singapore will have such a Campaign as well.

Before I go, check out these Videos. This was done on the last week of elections (Inspiring: I also want to vote!)

This reaction from the South Park Series is quite funny:

Parenting Blogs

As a "new" parent (this term is relative), we always find solace and comfort with our friends.

Due to my interest in Blogging, there are certain parent blogs that I frequent. In fact, most of them belong to my colleagues at work.

I think it's actually kind of weird that we hardly talk about our kids in person, but we catch up with the kids on each other's blog - such is the contradiction of technology.


If you are wondering what blogs I read, here are my picks:


Klessis' Blog - This was the very 1st parenting blog I visited. I was so inspired by her, that I decided to do my own (Hee...Hee! Bet she didn't know that!). Anyway this busy mother does not just have 1 blog, but she maintains 3 Blogs. She also makes lunch for little Joey with really cool Bento Sets


Sandra's Blog - Our history in City Harvest Church goes way back - We used to be CG members, when she was still in NTU. She is now a mother with an adorable son, and also a heavy blogger like myself. 

and my last colleague is:


Dawn's Blog - Little Denise happens to be Nicole's good friend. As they are school mates in school, Denise is the older sister that Nicole never had. They both have similar eating habits as well. Both of them love DONUTS!!!

and not forgetting ...there is one foreign parenting blog that I always follow.

Karen Cheng - This mother is based in Perth, Australia. She is really quite BIG in the blogsphere, and even had a party for all her fans when she came down to Singapore this year. Fans of Karen take pictures of themselves in front of the mirror, and call it "Doing the Karen Cheng". A interesting read!

Praying and Giving in City Harvest Church

Last weekend, it was finally time for us to pledge to the Church Building Fund.


We pledged our best to the Lord and our kids gave their best as well.

We brought their little "Piggy Banks" to church, and they will be contributing for this Arise and Build!

This week, we also started on our early morning prayer. Held on a monthly basis for a whole week, the church gathers every morning at 645am to pray to 8am at various venues.

Today is Day 4. We are a little tired, but it has really been refreshing to wake up early to seek the Lord, and to get disciplined with our prayer lives.


I have been going to the Kreta Ayer Center, which is proving to be a real hit with our Shenton Way crowd, as it is near their offices.

The venue at Paya Lebar is usually fully packed, so this is a good alternative, if you are looking for more room to pray.

So proud of u guys for really persevering and making a commitment to pray every morning!

The Market & the 3 Amigos

Today, when I came home after running an errand, Nicole came up to me and said that she wants to watch some home videos of herself.

Nic exclaimed, "I want to watch the video when we go to the market, and I blocked Nathan!"

"Block Nathan!?! You are so naughty...Nic...I didn't know you did it on purpose!" I replied.

Oh no! And all this while, I thought she was oblivious to the fact, that she was obstructing her brother.

Take a look at the video, and u will know what I am talking about.


On a lighter note, I was just talking to some friends about the kids.

3 amigos with special font

Have you realized how fast the kids forget you when they are young?

What do I mean?

Well, when you spend time and play with your kids, they will really become attached to you, but if you go for a business trip for 1 week, or overseas for a longer period of time, you will find that babies and very young children forget you very quickly.

It's kind of like when you are a young Christian: You may be very touched when you first get saved, and very motivated to come to church.

But if you give church a miss for even 1 week, or if no one comes along and encourages you along the way, you will gradually just forget God and become cold towards Him.

I guess that's why - God is always like a good parent, always trying to lead us back our quiet time, and to a godly fellowship.

Singapore Online Classifieds


When I was younger, I used to find these big yellow books under my phone:


The yellow pages has been part of the Singapore home in many ways - from pages to wrap "Otah", to books that take up space in the bomb shelter.
