- Cambodia Photo Tour 4 months ago In a word, Cambodia was… Amazing! Striking! Eye-opening! Thought provoking… OK, so that was five words, but all are true. In Singapore, Cambodia is a very popular place for charities to focus on. Caring for Cambodia and Tabitha are two of the largest organizations and, if you are...
- Weird thoughts 5 months ago You know, sometimes my mind works in weird ways. For example, as I was standing at the stove this evening, browning some bacon for a Caesar salad, I started watching a particular piece as it was rendering down. Have you ever really watched bacon cook? As the pan heats up, the fat in the bacon...
- Countdown to Cambodia 5 months ago Those of you who know me well, know that I love photography. I received my first camera, a KODAK Disc, when I was in junior high, but it wasn’t until our boys were born that I really got into it. We used to joke that the boys were so used to having their pictures taken [...]The post Countdown...
- The Art of the Brick 6 months ago I don’t know many mothers of boys who haven’t lived through the LEGO building years. There’s something about a box full of plastic bricks that can become just about anything you can imagine that has been drawing in kids for decades. They’ve also been drawn to the bottom of...
- Craving a little heat? 6 months ago Ok, I haven’t done a food/restaurant post in ages and, frankly, I didn’t want to. It’s hard to compare anything to octopus balls.

Great blog with some really excellent photography to boot! Written by someone with great sense of humor about all of the trials and tribulations of raising teen boys and all of the gritty, smelly, rough and tumble things that entails. Great travel tips as well, as the writer obviously enjoys learning about her local surroundings, and nearby vacation spots, and shares her enthusiasm with the reader. Really not just for expats, but expats will find a kindred spirit in it.

Niki is a very talented writer. Although she lives halfway across the world, I feel like I am experiencing her travels alongside her through her writing and her photography. I am so happy for her and her family that they are enjoying their new life in Singapore and I look forward to their next visit home, in Montreal.

I miss the Goldwax's... We all do. Niki's blog has become something we look forward to reading, it's a conversation piece at the dinner table. We know Niki just well enough to hear her voice as we read the blog posts. Her humor shines thru in a great way. I'm not surprised her blog is considered "one of the best". I hope she wins a prize, bust mostly I hope she keeps on posting.

Brave or just crazy always has me daydreaming about where to visit. After reading her incredible post about Kangaroo Island, I ended up booking my family there for part of our January vacation. I love her photography and her positive, humorous outlook.
