end sexual exploitation of children

Sticky

When I heard the horrifying story behind the “Destruction of Daisy” I got weak in the knees, chills down my spine and tears ran down my face.  I asked myself how could a human do such harm to innocent children?  What could have drove the perpetrator and even his cohorts do such things and not feel remorse or fear? As a mom, I am glad the evil man behind it was caught but I am heartbroken because that guy never showed remorse.  His cohorts who buy his sh*t has not been caught either.  They will all just find new source of freaky inhumane entertainment for theirRead More →

Having been born and raised in the city, I am so used to the concrete jungle.  Everyday of my life all I see are concrete walls, pavements, streets.  So whenever I go to the countryside I am so childlike.  Eyes wide open and I take in everything I see like different kinds of trees, birds and landscapes like mountains and hills. It was such a breather that the second state I visited in the USA during my visit was Oregon.   One of the most popular coastal U.S. state  known for its diverse landscape of forests, mountains, farms and beaches!   This is what IRead More →

My recent travel took me to Luang Prabang in Laos, a  place I have not included on my must-see places before.

what people prioritize over sleep

Recently I posted a sleep calculator on my Facebook to reassure myself that my daughter and my sleeping habits are fine. In the calculator it stressed that more than hours it is the time we sleep that matter most when it comes to knowing what time we should wake to feel refreshed more than anything else.
