    Anyone allow yr hubby to pursue partime course while working?

    I myself will be taking a part time course sponsored by my company for the next 2 years. My hubs is very supportive of it. If it's my hubby, I will allow him to do it. Even if it's not of much use now, it will definitely be of use in the future. But of course, some certs have "shelf...

    I TRUST my partner!!!!

    I trust my husband completely too. I actually disagree with most of my friends who advise me to keep "spare money" for myself just in case and this bank account should never be told to the husband. I believe there's a string which ties our pockets to our hearts and action speaks louder than...

    When you do not fully give, you will not be able to fully receive.

    Re: 80 Euros per day That is considered an allowance and the thing is, you won't spend up to 80 Euros a day even if you add 3 meals together. 80 euros x 21 days = 1680 euros which is equivalent to SGD3360, assuming that he would be paid 80 Euros as well during weekends. Re: No promotion in a...

    Relationship with Parents, especially Mum

    Re: Relationship with Family Yeah I feel that way sometimes too. My mum's not exactly the easiest person to live with either. It doesn't mean that I love her less. It's just that we both have different personalities and it takes two to make it work. I think your feelings are valid and you...

    Which is better gas cylinder or Singapore power gas?

    For me I prefer convenience... So I would go for citygas. Whether it is more expensive or cheaper also depends on how you use it. We run our water heater and clothes dryer and stove by gas.

    advice for nasal allergies?

    I suggest you remove environmental factors such as dust, etc, before considering supplements. My son had sensitive nasal passages. One of the reason for triggers is also air conditioning, dust and dust mites. When we remove the air conditioning, frequently clean and wipe his room and vacuuming...

    Settling vs marrying for love

    A lot of people enter marriage asking themselves, "What do I want from this marriage?". Though this is not the wrong question to ask, it cannot be the only question to ask yourself. To make a marriage work, it takes two hands to clap. Apart from "What do I want from this marriage?" you also have...
