Holiday Blues


Daily Dose: Holiday Blues

So, we are now at the midpoint of the March school holidays. Despite it being a week-long holiday, the usual hustle and bustle of planning for a day out are missing. Reason being that the family opt to stay in for this week to catch up on school work and revision.

Before you say I am a Tiger Dad, it is due to necessity rather than choice. It may be early in the year, but we had seen results deteriorating faster than a stock market crash. It is worrisome given that it is still early days. At the same time, it could be a blessing as we have time to address this. 

We will try to squeeze in a break in between the days of hitting the books, in the meantime- Happy Holidays!

3) Families flock to hotels for March Holiday Staycations amid Covid19

Are you taking a staycation this week?

We decided to stay home for revision instead. Results for the first quarter turns out to be dismay, so as a 'reward', it's a daily revision to play catch up.
