Hello there! I’m Bumble Bee Mum, your Auntie next door. Yup, that one you hear screaming at her kids everyday. If you don’t hear me, I’m probably not at home. I’m a stay home mum who does not stay home. Join me on my adventures with the kids on this Singapore Parenting + Travel Blog!
I have two super active boys, MF (born in Dec 2010) and MY (born in Jan 2013).
Although I call myself a ‘STAY-AT-HOME‘ mum, I seldom stay at home. Ever since my first-born was 1 month old, I have been going everywhere with him. My friends call me ‘pa pa zao mummy‘ (pa pa zao = always going everywhere in hokkien).
Due to my pa pa zao reputation, my friends kept asking me, “Where is a good place to bring baby to?” “Is there nursing room at where where where? Nice or not?” “That playground you went today, was it fun? What’s it called? Where is it?” ENOUGH!!! After answering the same question 10 times, I decided to set up a blog to archive the places I visited. So every time my friend asked me any question, I just tell them, “Go and read my blog.”
When my blog first started, it was mostly to entertain my friends (and myself). I used my iPhone to snap a few pictures here and there and post them to my blog. (And if you remember, the earlier generation of iPhones took crappy photos.) Strangely enough, as time went by, people (other than me and my friends) started reading my blog!
Before I knew it, I was getting stopped by strangers who came up to me and asked, “Are you Bumble Bee Mum?” At playgrounds, on the MRT, even in JAPAN. I was AMAZED!
So in 2015, I finally decided to shift my blog to a personal domain. I set up a Facebook Page, registered bumblebeemum.net and revamped my whole blog. I was freaking proud of my new-born blog! It was like my 3rd child was born – No need for epidural! (NO, I DO NOT WANT TO TRY FOR A GIRL. STOP ASKING.)

My Japan Travel Blog
I used to run another blog called ‘Buzzing to Japan’ where I archived my Japan travels, both with and without kids. After I got my own domain (Gotta fully utilize my web hosting!), I merged both blogs into one and you can now find my Japan Travelogue Index on the page “Japan Travel Blog” (along the top navigation bar of my blog).
