Cement Screeding, done!

As per my last post, the cement screeding appointment was set for 4-6th Jan. Called the lady from the HDB Bedok Branch that I’ve been liaising with and she advised us to call Jason (HDB appointed contractor) to confirm our dates.
So, as suggested, we called Jason a day prior to confirm the screeding. He didn’t pick up so the next best thing was to just message him and hope for the best. Apparently, he doesn’t like to pick up calls. Sigh. ( This Jason is really a character. Headacheee and unneccessary stress ah with him!)

JOSH & CHERIE, what lovely names.

As a pre-school educator, I always, always try my best to engage children in activities that doesn’t involve any form of technology. (Yesss, yesss, I am sometimes guilty of offering my iPad to my nephew. But hey, it’s choked full of educational games, I made sure of it. But yes it’s not right and I am minimising it alreaddddyyyy.. 😛 And that one, I’m being a doting auntie. Hee.)

Anyway, I don’t know about you but I grew up loving books. Of course, it helped greatly that we don’t have iPads and iPhones and all those fancy gadgets whilst growing up. But we did have Nitendo and Gamboy (non 90’s kids, please google.) but I preferred reading anyways so yea.  I remembered going to the library and burying my nose in my own world of fantasy for hours and hours. It was utter magic. 🙂
