  • No Really, You Still Deserve Me Time

    frmheadtotoe.com 16 May '17, 1pm

    may already know this but I mentioned in a recent post about how it’s honestly difficult for me to set aside time for treating myself, especially now that I have a baby. There will always be a million excuses in my head for all the tasks that need to be completed which is only compoun...

  • She is Priceless

    crystalstine.me 16 May '17, 11am

    The first time I received a pearl necklace it was a gift for my college graduation. Apparently, that’s the traditional gift because I also received matching pearl earrings. The only other time pearls were added to my closet, I bought a strand of fake ones for myself as a souvenir duri...

    Sometimes I purposely distract him (Junya let’s sing a song!! Junya you want to eat hamburg or chicken later??) whenever I see something that may intrigue him that will end up stalling the walk home. But hey, he always manages to find something else to be amazed about. Roadworks, buse...

    May has always been my favourite month of the year what with so many birthday celebrations this month... including mine, of course (*^▽^*) We've been to Sentosa sooooo many times, but this weekend will be the first time we are going to have a family staycation there!! As always, Lil P...

  • Submission in Context: Christ and the Greco-Roman Household Codes

    rachelheldevans.com 12 May '17, 12am

    Furthermore, if you look close enough, you can detect the rumblings of subversion beneath the seemingly acquiescent text. It is no accident that Peter introduced his version of the household codes with a riddle—“Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; ...

    Eeek. People are so Self Centred

    hollyjean.sg 10 May '17, 5am

    You know, when I was on my own, I would hold doors open for others and let others enter the lift first etc, that sort of thing. I wouldn't even think of it, it's just a regular thing. It doesn't cost me anything (hardly a few seconds of my time) to be polite/considerate. But now when ...

    crystalstine.me 09 May '17, 4pm

    She walked confidently into the room and looked at the scene. Wading pools, water slides, 50-foot towers filled with water guns, hoses, buckets, and all manner of sprayers filled the space. To the left, a large shallow pool full of toddlers played on four slides. Further in front of u...

  • Patriarchal values and the death penalty

    rachelzeng.wordpress.com 06 May '17, 8am

    Our friend above is pro death penalty. Don’t agree with you Rachel. It is very easy to be on the other side of the fence and talk about love and goodwill and be all goody goody. Yes this should be the base for humanity but for humans not for demons. Punishment also has it’s place and ...

    Soooo there are times whereby I take so long to blog about some events or holidays that I go "ahhhh forget it... so long ago already" and just give up on writing about it hahaha. I'm sure many of my fellow bloggers can relate to this. This was probably going to be one of those unrecor...

    Thai Festival (4-7 May) at Royal Thai Embassy

    just once, on the day it opened, and found that it wasn’t very different from our usual pasar malams except that it was on a bigger scale. Today, I popped by the Thai Festival at the Royal Thai Embassy along Orchard Road, hoping to find Thai food and trinkets sold by actual Thai people

  • The Grandest Love of All

    proudduck.com 03 May '17, 5am

    GRANDPARENTS are God-sent. They are the ones with home-made kuih raya all year long, they are the ones with juicy stories about our parents, and they are the only ones who can tell our parents off for not getting us that nice handbag we’ve been eyeing. I was lucky enough to experience...

  • The Seismic Shift from Striving to Responding

    crystalstine.me 02 May '17, 4pm

    I had blogged for years, but one wintery day, I decided to get serious about writing instead of it just being a hobby. I designed a new website and started penning a book. Soon I was writing all hours of the night. I felt invigorated. My husband commented on my pleasant demeanor (as o...

    I often scroll through my Instagram feed and find myself muttering to myself, if only my skin was that flawless. I, just like everyone else have insecurities and for me, my skin is one of those. Over the years I’ve gone from combination skin to sensitive skin and due to my bad diet, l...

  • Everyday Play Experience

    hollyjean.sg 02 May '17, 3am

    A good part of my week is spent doing the laundry and ironing. So I've made it part of her play experience as well. Grappling with the laundry basket (sometimes heaped full of clothes), is great exercise for her. The large physical movements (when she reaches into the basket to sort a...

    “Wherever we have the races mixed up in large numbers, we have trouble….These religious liberals are the worst infidels in many ways in the country; and some of them are filling pulpits down South. They do not believe the Bible any longer; so it does not do any good to quote it to the...

    The Path from Striving to Serving

    crystalstine.me 25 Apr '17, 4pm

    I’ve discovered one secret to moving from striving to serving. The only problem is, I’m not naturally good at it. My family is well aware that I am not very observant. When my husband and I were first married, we lived in a duplex that had a short walkway with small patches of dirt on...

    Instagram vs Reality

  • Thou Shalt Not Let Thyself Go?

    rachelheldevans.com 23 Apr '17, 10am

    In my quest for biblical womanhood , I’ve found that sometimes there’s as much to learn from what the Bible doesn’t say as there is to learn from what it does say. Today’s post is about something the Bible doesn’t say . Back in 2006, Pastor Mark Driscoll made headlines when in respons...

    The Scandal of the Evangelical Heart

    rachelheldevans.com 22 Apr '17, 12pm

    Perhaps in reaction to the “scandal of the evangelical mind,” evangelicalism of late has developed a general distrust of emotion when it comes to theology. So long as an idea seems logical, so long as it fits consistently with the favored theological paradigm, it seems to matter not w...

    BT: The greatest failure of the church/Christian organizations when it comes to responding to abuse is institutional self-protection. Too often Christian institutions have been willing to sacrifice the individual human soul in exchange for the protection of their own reputation. What ...
