Something so enthralling about sunsets and what-nots. Passing on my love for sunsets and sunrises to my kids, hoping that they know the significance of it, at least to mama bear here..that whenever they see a sunset, they would know that the day has ended, no matter how tough or happy the day was, it signifies the ending of a day; what about sunrise? No matter how tough the night or challenges we face along the way, it's a brand new day, of hope and faith. #keiraandkayla#copyandpaste#sunset#hopeandfaith#neverloseit#sgkids#loveyoualways
Dear mama, Facebook reminded me that it's your birthday today, of course, needless to say, I would always remember this day of yours. Since I was 7? Has it been 4 years since I can't celebrate your birthday with you? I honestly abhor this. That I can't celebrate your birthday like we used to for as long as I could remember. 4 years it has been, yet memories of you remain so fresh and vivid, especially special days. I read from somewhere that grief is the price we pay for love. How sadistically and morbidly true this is. These days, I find myself grappling with this question : why do we love someone so much with all we have only to have to painfully lose the person? Yea, we can call this what life is all about. But no, the bigger picture of this is, pain and memories. It is what it is. You remain so ever alive in my life Ma, in everything I do. People often say walking on courageously and strongly is the right thing to do, to honour your legacy. But while they are right, I miss you with every bit that I have mama. I miss having that one person whom I can call freely and at any time, either just to rant about my day, to hear your voice or simply just the innate need to top up my love tank from my Mother. It's that motherly touch and love that's hugely missing from my life Ma. I get it that I am very blessed with a little kampong of my own, but at the same time, how can one feel so adequate and yet inadequate all at once? That huge gaping void that you have left Ma, is so huge I think it would probably take the same amount of years that I lived with you to learn how to live without you before the void gets better. I miss receiving your calls, the way a Mom would call often to check in on her kids, I miss your motherly voice saying that "it will all be okay even when it's not" . Most of all, I miss you so much Ma. It pains me to know that the kids would never get to know a wonderful woman like you, just earlier, they asked me "if porpor would return from the moon on her birthday". I wish you can. So badly in fact. I hope you are having the time of your life wherever you are, missing me and thinking of me like I always do with you Ma. Happy birthday my lovely mama!
Just mama and older bubs date with my older girlies today, in truth, it's simply because I had to go for my monthly facial appointment and I had to bring two kids along. I can tell these two really look forward to our monthly date together, likewise for me. It's nice to be able to take some time off to appreciate each other, I like looking into the rear view mirror while driving sometimes and admire the sweetness of my 5 year old monkeys. All these is not quite possible if the younger two are in the car because tau huay rascal would be chatting non stop and patootie would be cooing as well. Yea, imagine the rowdiness in my car😅 just the other day, a lady who looks to be in her 50s was gushing over #keiraandkayla, saying how identical they look alike and that I'm very very blessed to not just have one but two beautiful girls who look alike. My answer to her? Indeed I'm very blessed and fortunate to have them both as well as my other monkeys😊 #keiraandkayla#motheranddaughter#date#memories#thankful#justusthree#beingmom#momlife#copyandpaste#twins
谢家的三位千金😍 佳蒽。欣蒽。瑞恩👭👧🏻 I often wonder what the future holds for them, in turn, the older girls asked me on numerous occasions if they would find their prince one day(I know right, these kids sure start early these days). To which, my reply to them is uniformly the same : find a prince who would love you just the way you are, who puts you as the centrestage of his life and of course, choose wisely☝🏻 anyhow, I am so thankful that I've got 3 daughters, whom I can fulfil my shopping craziness on them, whom I can dote upon like girlie girls, whom I can have girlie conversations with them of course, being out-witted by them more often than not😅 so thankful and blessed to have them all. Kids are really the greatest gifts from the big one up there indeed. #keiraandkayla#karaoliviachia#thechiakampong#mygirls#sgkids#我家的三位千金
当孩子们是妈妈的世界中心时，当妈妈的感觉是一种无语形容的快乐与伤悲，快乐是当我们知道孩子们安然无恙，伤悲与担心的时侯，那些夜晚的眼泪，为孩子而流的也很真很痛。但这也是当妈妈的一点一滴。I get people telling me to "teach" their kids how to be a Mom when their kids eventually become one, to which I often answer them, that there is no manual to being a mom. My own Mother did not give me a through breakdown and know-hows of being a Mom, let's just say that being Mom is a very intuitive thing. And, it's a forever learning journey. Wouldn't want to have it any other way no matter how busy or worrying being a Mother entails. #karaoliviachia#beingmom#momlife#iloveyou#sgmom#mommyanddaughter
Time is of such a fleeting nature, we know it yet we can never grab it nor grasp it fully. Everyday I spent with this little girl, day in and day out, for 15 months x 24 hours a day, it has become a habit of sort. To have her and be with her always. I think, at this current point, from the way she sticks to me like "salonpas", I believe our affection for each other is mutual. That is, until she gains her wings and flutter away to school-hood and slowly but surely, Mummy would just be a beacon and anchor for her(which I am not complaining and wouldn't want to have it any other way). Looking back at her countless old photos, I can't help but feel as if we are leaving something behind as we journey the path of toddlerhood together. Could it be those fuzzy newborn baby moments that I miss? Heck, I am already missing her kicks and what-nots in-utero. Could it be the pang of missing her helpless infant moments? As I watch her leaving her little footprints around these days, as she trundles around carefully, learning to pick herself up when she falls, my littlest baby is really not quite a little baby anymore. So, desperately, I find myself trying to seize every moment of hers even more carefully, trying to capture every memory with her in my heart even more than what it used to be. Could this be the last baby syndrome? Perhaps. Either way, while I am ready to take on the world with her alongside her 3 feisty and witty siblings, I wish, so badly, that time would slow down for a bit. Just so I could greedily savour these moments slowly. Because every moment with my little munchkin shines. #karaoliviachia#15monthsold#mylittlestjoy#everymomentwithyoushines#iloveyou#lastbabysyndrome#momthoughts#slowdownbaby#beingmom
Celebrating Mother's Day with my loves, in truth, I have been dreading Mother's Day since Mom left, in fact, I find Mother's Day a very painful day to behold - what's the point of Mother's Day when the one who gave it so much meaning is no longer around - it makes me yearn for Mom even more, it makes the pang of missing her even heavier, oh the pain of missing someone who's no longer around, it hurts beyond words. But, I'm thankful for my kids, and family, they keep me sane and in one piece. Happy mummy's day to all mummies out there🙆🏼 #thechiakampong#keiraandkayla#keyanthefluff#karaoliviachia#happymothersday2017#missingmom#wishyouwerehere
