TheWackyDuo.com was officially launched on 1st March 2012.
The Wacky Duo are a pair of brothers Big C and Little L, born and raise in Sunny Singapore. We may be the blog owners but with limited vocabulary, Daddy opts to volunteer to pen our thoughts. In essence, we speak through the blog as one family. It may be a tad confusing in the beginning but you will get the hang of it if you read it often.
A word of caution... Our old man updates this blog at his free time. In reality, this often means writing at wee hours at night after we sleep. Do not expect his brains to function 100% as he battles Z monster to complete a post. His over-reliance on Spellcheck and Grammarly may result in certain parts of the post sounding incoherent and at times gibberish. Unfortunately, this error-prone habit was wired in him since young, as grammar was never his forte in school. He struggles with the difference between adverb and adjective. For someone who consistently received a D for grammar and A for creatively, this is probably the best he can mustered . He does strive for improvement by proof-reading each post thrice. However, age is catching up with him. His once famed eagle gaze (he was a pilot trainee) is now the equivalent of how humans see in water - you can make out the shape but you can never be sure what it is.
If it is an English lesson that you seek when reading this blog, please do yourself a favour... Shut your computers and mobile phones off. If it is family lifestyle information you seek, this blog will provide plenty and may actually be worth a read. In case you are still blur, let us make this very clear. We are not social influencers and we do not live in the blog world. Posts are conjured straight from brain to fingers (keyboards) without much filter in between. Do bear with our cringe-worthy, grammatically incorrect and localised (aka Singaporean laced Singlish) posts that we love to share.
If that is acceptable to you ...
Welcome to our family journal!
This blog was initially set up to document our lives. It had evolved from the earlier diary entries on our growth to a journal showcasing the magic of family fun. Hopefully, when we become Daddies, we will be proud to share this journey with our kids and our spouses.
Our goal is to provide you with an insight into the family lifestyle in Singapore through personal experiences and quality reviews. Being a pro-family journal, you can find posts ranging from the latest family activities, travel experiences, products review, parenting tips, lifestyle recommendation and lots more in our blog. The blog is not set up as a business but rather as an outlet to share information with like-minded parents. The journal is recognised as one of Singapore Best Family Blog in 2012. As of 2016, TheWackyDuo.com is the number one independent (non-agency) Daddy Blog in Singapore in terms of readership. Till date, we have reached 4 million+ page views and counting!
For those with kids, we hope we can share our growing up experiences with you. For those thinking of starting a family, we hope that you can see that it is not as scary or difficult as one envision. On the contrary, it is one of the most rewarding experiences life can offer. To all those who had visited, we hope you will be inspired by our little 'adventures'. We hope our stories can give you ideas to create your own 'adventures'. In the meantime, enjoy your stay here and come back often to visit us.
