HIBIKI IV : A Drum Extravaganza

Hibiki IV
It's an open secret that the Wackies are fans of drums. In fact we were exposed to Drum performance since 2009.
Thus it was without hesitation we accepted the invitation to attend HIBIKI IV at NUS cultural center. HIKIBI IV is the fourth edition of this annual performance. This was a performance by Hibikiya, a local Japanese culture group, to showcase Japanese musical art form with Tenko drums as the main instrument.

Keep Calm and a Father On

Letter to Sons : Emotions of a First time Father

Dearest Sons

You may like to think I became a father when the elder of you was born . The truth is that I started wearing the Father 'hat' on the day your mom and I discovered your presence.

It was 8 years ago that the journey started. The discovery of a blue cross indicator across a clearblue pregnancy kit kicked off the beginning of a chapter that will continue for the rest of my life. To be sure of the news, your mom took the pregnancy test twice before sharing the news with me. We had been planning for the arrival of the first for almost a year and we were glad that that the result of the test was positive.

To ban or not to ban?

Recently I was asked to give my view on the banning and pulping of books by NLB. The books in question are Tango makes Three, The White Swan Express : A story about adoption and Who is in my family ? All about our families. Just yesterday, it was reported in the Straits Times more books by Robbie Harris ( author of Who's in my family) are going the way of the do-do, at least at the premises of Singapore libraries. The books in question are 'It's so amazing', 'It's not the Stork' and and an ironically name title ' It's perfectly normal'.

Doctor for a day
Now parents, be honest, who wants their children to be a doctor when he or she grow up?

If I were to pose the above questions in a room of 100 parents, I would probably see 90% of the hands raised ( mine included ) , so when the opportunity came to experience being a 'Doctor for a day', we were more than happy to participate.
