"Like not a few alpha individuals, however, Ms Chen found a way of transforming her frustrations into something productive and profitable. She first started writing down her thoughts and feelings in a personal memoir meant to be read by her family some day to remind them of their time in Singapore."
-The Business Times: "Redefining Motherhood"

"Stephanie captures it all so perfectly – from mould and haze, and crazy grocery prices, to spending too much time surfing expat wife forums and feeling guilty but thankful for being able to employ helpers; the obstacles (ranging from trivial to major), behaviours and everyday observations are unabashedly relevant. Throw in some juicy drama and a tinge of mystery, and you’ve got yourself a book that you won’t want to put down!"
