Crazy yet rational. Determined yet a procrastinator. Yeap, that's me. Here at WonderMa Singapore, you'll find a recollection of my thoughts, opinions based on my journey as a woman feeling pressured to 'have it all' by my own emotional paralysis. Thank goodness I am blessed with a supportive husband, and a docile dog, Sundae. Hear me share the craziest, funniest and emotional stories and thoughts from my friends and I. As the saying goes ☛ It is hard to be a woman - "<i>You must think like a man, Act like a lady, Look like a young girl, And work like a horse.</i>" What say you? 😅
