Lovely News… A Reminder of Why I Love What I Do :)

Had a call from a local magazine today. They are looking for ladies who have found love in their 30s. So, they wanted my help to check with our clients if they are willing to be interviewed.

It was a good opportunity for me to catch up with our married clients. Called up one of our lady clients who got married earlier this year… let’s call her M. It was really nice to touch base with her. So I told her about the story angle, and asked if she was willing to be interviewed and photographed for the magazine. She gamely agreed. I also told her that it is not necessary for her to tell the magazine how she and hubby met, as many of our clients would prefer not to let people know that they met through a dating agency.

Then M actually said, “I don’t mind!” Wow! Then she asked me if she can bring her own clothes. I told her I am not too sure, as sometimes the magazine might prepare clothes for the shoot, but I will check. And that was when she told me the extremely GOOD NEWS…

“Oh, it’s because I am pregnant!”

Wow! I was like so happy. Another Lunch Actually baby. :)

When people ask me, “Don’t you sometimes get tired of your profession? Why are you so passionate about what you do? Why this business of all business?”

This is the reason… I think there are not many jobs in the world where you can have a ‘direct’ hand in helping someone find happiness, and help bring a child to this world.

Can’t wait to see the photos of the baby! :) Happy happy happy!

My Day Off

Today, I decided to take a day off. I talked to my ‘Boss’, and he said, “Ya, go ahead… spend some time at home with Babe.” :)

Truth is, I did not know how much I needed the day off until I took it.

It’s been a long time since I sat down and watched Babe ate his lunch, helping him clean up whenever the lasagne sauce dripped down his chin. Usually, I am on my way out of the house. Or I will be hurrying ‘kakak’ to feed him so that we can bring him out ‘gai gai’. I have forgotten the many delightful expressions he actually has as he savours his food. Today, he had a treat, yummy lasagne instead of his usual porridge. After lunch, we watched an educational video together. I dozed off a little. But Babe was watching intently. And after the video, he walked to his bed, smothered his face into his favourite pillow, and fell asleep.

He’s still sleeping as I am writing this entry.

I have been so busy in the past weeks… the aftermath of the National Day Rally where there has been a huge focus on our industry. I am grateful for the attention our industry has been getting, as it serves as a reminder that many eligible singles use dating services, and it is just another method to widen their social circles.

However, I might have been so busy that I have forgotten to appreciate the many blessings in my life.

I thank God for giving me an opportunity today, to take a step back and reflect. Babe is only a toddler once. When he grows up, even if I want to spend time with him, he might not want to spend time with me.

Oops… he’s awake now… mummy duty calls! :)

My Favourite Boys :)

After some hectic weeks, finally had some quality time with the family. Brought babe to East Coast Park. It was his first Beach day-out! We built sandcastles, had ice-cream (at least hubby and I did), and cycled around the park on a family bike. It was my first time on a family bike… and at first, we had some problems coordinating. But after that, we were like pros, making u-turns etc. :) And the best thing is to see babe smiling and enjoying himself.

Looking forward to more of todays. :)
