Last Sunday I invited the Ma Cherie girls over for tea. It has been a long time since our last gathering. Life is very busy after Annabelle’s birth, and I really long for some proper social life T.T
That afternoon we had so much fun talking about our lives and share about visions and dreams. It is the first time they visit my place and also the first time I am sharing my private space with all of you…
It is always great to have the girls around, we can talk non-stop on any kind of topics, from fashion to technology, children, work, food and to the infinity and beyond…
If you ask me, how is my dream house look like?
It would be exactly like this.
My place is not big. But it is enough for a small family like ours. I like it this way cos’ I don’t have to work long hours on the house chores. Kitchen, living area and dining area are all in the same space. It makes the whole area more spacious and it is easier for a mother like me to take care of my babies. I can cook while the babies sleep on the couch or play in their playpen. And I can eat my dinner while watching my favourite Korean drama (I know, I know, bad habits… hehe…)
This is also where I spend countless nights, drafting and working on my awesome blog posts.
Now, let me show you what’s up there!
This is where we Kelvin’s parents would stay if they happened to be in town. When Isabelle grows older (or when she doesn’t want to share a room with her sister anymore), we would make this into Isabelle’s room 🙂 But right now, whoever is visiting us from faraway land will still get to enjoy this 🙂
This is where Isabelle sleeps at night. She is two and a half now. We let her sleep on her own while Annabelle (5 month old) sleeps with me cos’ she still wake up occasionally for milk in the middle of the night. Every night I will read stories to my girls and tuck them in. I will play children songs for them and pray that God will comfort them and make them sleep through the night and rest well. Looking at them sleeping soundly gives me great sense of achievement and joy in my heart.
Then I will spend some alone time with him. It is weird that after we have children, I become even more clingy. I just wanna stay with him and listen to all his stories and adventures out there. He is probably one of the person that I know who travels too much. Just to give you an idea, he travels to 3-4 countries every month. At any point of time, his wallet would have 3-4 different currencies. Therefore when he is home, I feel like I want to be with him more and savour all the good times we can spend together.
Nope, we don’t have TV in the room, cos’ we believe in spending quality time together.
Can you see the little “cot” near the window? That is where we place Annabelle. It is a very clever “detachable” cot, it can be attached to the bed so that I can closely monitor her at night. Hehe…
And you might be wondering…
Do I feel insecured or alone when he is not around?
What do you mean?
We have a smart door lock \(0.o)/
No, I am not alone when he is not around. It is as wonderful, cos’ I can spend some alone time with myself. I normally make myself a cup of coffee or pour myself a glass of good wine and pick up a book to read. They always say, a woman who reads is a wiser and more sensible woman. And yes, I want to be that woman, whom her man will come home to her and talk through a tough decision with.
Of course, friends are very important part of my life. It is great to hang out with good people that share the same passion. It inspires and motivates me to be better on a whole new level!
(Oh my, I have so much potential to be The Stepford Wives)

Thank you very much for reading about my sharing on my dream home. Hope you find them inspiring too.
Note: No lah~ I don’t really own or stay in the house mentioned above (although I really wish I could). All of the stories above are what I have in mind when I dream about my new home. However, all characters appearing in this work are REAL. They are my real family and friends.
Dreams do make us feel more alive and motivated isn’t it?
