2023 Week 11 Update

We’re back in Singapore from India and this time, my parents came back with us. My father, who is a patient with Parkinson’s Syndrome is still tired and getting used to being in Singapore. He had a harder time travelling and other than the move from Mumbai to Bengaluru, he hasn’t travelled since 2019. But, the time now is to enjoy the months we have together in Singapore before they return home.

Today’s quote is attributed to the man known as the Father of the Nation in India, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. Gandhi asks us to spare a look at sparrows who live in the moment and asks us to do the same. By living in a single moment, we don’t worry about tomorrow and the future, instead, we focus on the now and live that moment to the fullest.

GG just received her results, and though they were not what she expected, she is relieved that she has now finished her polytechnic journey. She also graduated with a minor in Basic Japanese language and this is something she plans to do more of later. She has been applying to universities and has already done one round of interviews and has another one due this week. Please send her positive energies from wherever you read this, and whichever higher faith you believe in, so she can get admission into her course of choice and hopefully, to the university of her choice.

BB is awaiting his enlistment letter and once that comes in, we will have some clarity on when his national service stint will begin and we can start planning for his university applications.

We’re still not back to full speed with life as usual but hope that this week life will go back to some semblance of normal. And on that note, take care, stay safe and talk soon!
