Is Medical Insurance Coverage Necessary?

For the past year and in recent months, I have been in and out of hospitals more times than I have in my whole life. This really sets me back thinking hard. With the ever-rising medical costs, will I be able to afford should anything happen to my family or me?

A report released by Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and the Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI) showed that the inflation rate increased by 4.2% year-on-year in May 2013 [Source: Singapore’s Inflation Up 1.6% On-Year In May 2013]. However, I believe many people’s salary do not rise at the same rate or even higher.

Baby Ashley’s 3 month-old photoshoot @ Venus D’Wedding

Earlier, Colin has shared with you our little darling’s swimming experience at BabySpa. In that post, he mentioned a complimentary table top photo which came together with the swimming package we got for Ashley. Being like any other excited first-time parents, we wasted no time in bringing Ashley for her first studio shoot when she turned 3 months. That’s when we realized that it is not easy to do a photo shoot for the little angel. Although she is a active and happy baby, it proved challenging to capture her smiles and action in just one shot. Nevertheless, we were glad that the photographer tried his best to capture her cutest moments in still shots. As usual, it was a tough decision to select just one photo for the photo frame and thrash the rest into the recycle bin. Therefore, we decided to top up for an additional of 5 photos for our little angel and our rationale, as any parent would have was, ” She’ll only be 3 months old once!” We were really glad we did the top up when we received the photos yesterday as we were satisfied with the quality of the photo shoot. Here’s a peek into the outcome of Baby Ashley’s 3 month old photo shoot  at Venus D’ Wedding.

Ashley @ BabySPA

A haircut visit turns into an unexpected swimming sessions for Ashley! We did see BabySPA previously before Annabelle gave birth to Ashley while window shopping at Changi City Point Mall. There were thoughts but no decision made as we were unsure if Ashley would enjoy.

After trimming Ashley’s hair, we brought Ashley for the swimming trial before deciding whether to sign up the package. After seeing how Ashley enjoyed herself in the water, we signed up the 20-sessions package. The package also came with a tabletop photo which you have to take at Venus D’Wedding. The staff there was friendly and helpful, at least for the branch which we frequent. Other services which BabySPA provides are haircut, baby massage, sales of Korean-made playmats, beans spout husk pillows and etc.
