About Me

I am married to a loving husband who is French and we have two wonderful children, a girl and a boy. From a young age, I love to write and am quite the chatterbox.  In 2002, I left Singapore to move to Canada.  I started writing a journal then and it slowly evolved.  I used to have my personal domain where I would upload photos and little snippets of how I was living my life away from home.  When I was trying to be pregnant, I would log my journey in an online fertility support group's journal.  Eventually, I converted the journal into a blog and that started my path as a blogger. 

As time passed, my blog purpose changed.  It became a medium for our families overseas to stay connected to the lives of my family, especially the children.  My first blog, mapetitechouchou was featured in a Canadian magazine.  I eventually combined the blog for my two children into one.  And recently, I re-branded the blog to "Parenting Across 2 Cultures".

As an avid writer, I contribute articles to Mother and Baby, a magazine published in Singapore by Mediacorp.

On a personal basis, I enjoy travelling and reading.  I also bake and find a lot of joy in making pretty cakes.  I am passionate about issues related to the family, in particular, parenting and marriage.  I am a trained facilitator for Parenting with Confidence programmes and my husband and I are currently marriage mentors as well.

Currently, I am pursuing a graduate diploma in counselling where I hope that upon completion of the course, i will be in a better position to work with families at risk.

Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you will enjoy reading my posts as much as I like writing them.
