  • The pursuit of happiness

    fourfeetnine.com 26 May '17, 2pm

    Hey Audrey. Thanks for this beautiful write up. I recently feel somewhat the same, like I don’t know who I am anymore. I think back at the time I was in college/uni, so happy, funny and sociable. Nowadays I don’t even know what to talk about when i see my friends as my brain feels so ...

    the sweetest presentation

    proudduck.com 24 May '17, 1pm

    Ok so you might want to steal my best friends after this post, but I’d like to declare that they are bounded to me by a friendship contract so carefully worded that basically means they’re stuck with me and that you can’t sit with us. Unless you bring cake, we like cake. Well, I like ...

    a little boost

    proudduck.com 23 May '17, 7am

    I haven’t blogged for weeks and let me tell you, I was one of the grumpiest versions of me. I just cannot… I need to blog, I need to write, I need to pour my creative juice into this Word document. Seeing a blank white space get filled up with this black font, it just excites me and I...

  • Esther and Vashti: The Real Story

    rachelheldevans.com 20 May '17, 5pm

    When I was a kid, I imagined Esther to be something of a beauty pageant contestant. I figured that, in addition to her twelve months of beautification, she must have performed a talent and answered questions from a glass bowl before winning the heart of a love-struck King Xerxes. I ne...

  • “God and the Gay Christian” Discussion, Week 1

    rachelheldevans.com 19 May '17, 2pm

    “That means I believe all of Scripture is inspired by God and authoritative for my life,” Matthew writes of the second. “While some parts of the Bible address cultural norms that do not directly apply to modern societies, all of Scripture is ‘useful for teaching, for reproof, for corr...

  • Why 7-Eleven's Marketing Campaigns Are So Tempting, And What Your Company Can Learn

    Why 7-Eleven’s Marketing Campaigns Are So Tempting, And What Your Company Can Learn |

    If you’d like to change consumer behavior, consider how you can create these near-miss situations. Not too long ago, Mr Bean launched their scratch-and-win campaign. Buy a pancake + drink, for instance, and get a scratchcard. I bought such a set specifically because I wanted to take p...

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

    rachelheldevans.com 19 May '17, 3am

    I cannot overstate the degree to which this remix—in which masters are reminded that they too have a heavenly master—would have been radical in the ancient world. And this is important: Peter and Paul’s use of metaphor (the husband is like Christ, the wife is like the Church, sufferin...

  • 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...

    I’m in the final throes of finishing the next book and will be largely offline for the next few weeks, but I wanted to share a book that came across my desk that I loved and think you will too. In Faithful Families: Creating Sacred Moments at Home , Rev. Traci Smith, a Presbyterian pa...

    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 ...

  • Contagious Courage

    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 ...

  • Nestlé Commercial Video Stars for the Day!

    sakuraharuka.com 05 May '17, 2am

    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...

    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...
