What to do during the haze

I think we’ve never experienced haze as terrible as we did the past few days.  With majority of schools closed due to the haze, we still send Ethan to kindy as usual the past two days as his school is a corner lot house with full air-conditioned and is operating as usual minus the outdoor activities. Today, Ethan was supposed to go for his BaoBei class too in the evening but he told us that […]

Pyssla beads cake

Our client refused to accept my ‘NO CAN DO’ answer and insists that we come out with something in two days time! @[email protected] I was so stressed! Today is the final day for submission […]
