Fog, smog, or haze

Fog : noun
Condensed water vapor in cloudlike masses lying close to the ground and limiting visibility.

I always have romantic visions of fog.

This was especially so when I spend a winter in London with my wife during our courtship days. It was cool and refreshing at the same time. Sure it may detered vision and at times block the scenery, but nonetheless, taking a stroll on a foggy day or night with your love one clinging close will be a romantic gesture I can tick off my list. The memory of eating fish and chips with the London eye half covered by the FOG at the background still lingers in my memories.

Ahh.. If only we have the same FOG back home.

Johnson's Baby active fresh Shampoo Review

As parents, we love to hug our little ones. We enjoy the 'baby smells' that comes from our children. However after a day of activities in hot and humid Singapore, the 'baby smells' are likely to disappear. As much as we love our children, hugging a sweaty and a potentially smelly one may not be every parent's desire.

McDonald's Happy Meal : DK Books


The boys are no stranger to McDonald's Happy Meals. It is by their own admission, their comfort food of choice. Thankfully for us as parents , McDonald's Happy Meals has been offering a balanced great tasting meals to suit the kids since 1979. The kid's-size fare now comes in 500 calorie-and-under sets. In addition, you can choose healthier options such as milk along with choice of Apple Slices or Corn cup. We are glad to know they had also switched to using Canola Blend oil to fry Chicken McNuggets thereby reducing saturated fats by 30%.

Then of course there is the toy that comes in every Happy Meal to 'reward' the little ones.
