where-to-weekend: expo mom 2012, the best of modern motherhood

events, mummy events, Expo Mom, weekends, Where-to-Weekends

I am a hands-on mum who has 100% {maybe more, if were only possible!} involvement in my little man’s life, who wants to be there + share the minutest achievement or the most mundane of discoveries. How about you?

We mums can be called different names depending on how we’d like to go about our mothering.   A techie mum who gives her kids all the trendiest gadgets, an earth-loving mum who uses cloth diapers + teach her children ways on how to care for the environment, + the list goes on + on. Or you can be a Jill-of-all-trades giving your little ones the best of all worlds! 🙂

Whichever mothering paths you chose, trust Expo Mom to organize a 2-day event that not only showcases the latest mummy + baby products to help you about your mothering duties in style + keep up with the changing times, as well, but expect them to also invite experts to give inspirational talks on the more pressing issues + subjects at the moment.

plans for securing the future

money talks, money matters, motherhood

Each one of us aims to have a peaceful + comfortable life come retirement years, that is why it is not a problem to us now if we beat all the endless deadlines + work doubly hard. Anything we can do to make sure our families will have a bright future, right? Even work/stay-at-home-mums like me also has these ideas in mind that is why we also look for alternative ways to secure our future even without a conventional 9-5 job to speak of.

Here are a few things that came up when I think about my retirement + my possible life when I am in my 60’s:

  • Update my Social Security System {SSS} contributions ~ I have been a member for a long time now, until I decided to quit my former job. I am actually just about 18 contributions shy to qualify for a monthly pension come my retirement age. It has been my goal to update my contributions ever since I found out I can still earn while I stay home to look after my little toddler, I have actually been to their local office twice + asked for a contribution form, but did not get around to actually paying due to the long queues. I shall visit the place again before the month end + update my contributions. I must! 
  • Setting up my own bank account ~ as of now, I have only opened a bank account for the little man, which I have managed to update with a deposit regularly for more than a year now. Hopefully, I can find the time, not to mention the budget for it, so I can set up another bank account, under my name this time.
