Hi there! A big, warm welcome to my blog
I am a 50-year old homemaker who has found the journey from being a banker/stockbroker to being a housewife a big challenge and great learning experience – with lots of sweat, joy, satisfaction, tears, and insanity !
I have a loving husband, 2 daughters and 2 sons,aged 17 to 26, 2 cats who get along happily with our Beagle dog! We live in a 3-storey terraced house in the suburbs of Kuala Lumpur.
Nope, I don’t have a maid to help me at all – I am always multi-tasking as a wife, a mother, a maid, a driver, a chef, financier, psychologist, dog groomer …
God knows how many times I had almost thrown in the towel and scream at the madness of coping with it all……but somehow, there is a thread of sanity in me making me hang on to be what I’m striving to be – a loving, successful homemaker. At the end of the day, there is contentment and peace in my heart, knowing that my husband and children are well nurtured and taken care of.
This blog also serves as a legacy to my children, for when I am not around, they can refer here for our family’s heritage recipes and some homemaking tips. I hope that by sharing with you my experiences here, it would benefit you in some way, especially if you are a new wife, stay-at-home mom, single mom, working wife, mom, or housewife.
There will be many tips and articles on being a successful homemaker, on health, on how to keep going, homecooked food recipes, nourishing recipes, health recipes, home and natural remedies, dieting and even some ghost stories.
Most importantly, I would like to think of this blog as my virtual home, where you are most welcome to visit anytime when you are free, when you are down, when you are happy….. please make yourself comfortable, have your favourite cup of coffee or tea …. and know that you are not alone trying to cope with your chores, being a wife and mother, but that there are many of us out there in the world leading a similar life like you.
May your days be filled with love, prosperity and joy always!
