Saturday Shout-Out: Hoo Goes Where

I wanted to use my Saturday posts to highlight some great bloggers out there. This week’s feature blogger is wonderful and I hope you love her as much as I do. If you’d like me to highlight you, just send me an email:


Saturday Shout-Out

~Your name: I answer to several, but you can call me Janie.

~Your blog’s name w/ link: Hoo Goes Where  http://hoogoeswhere.blogspot.com

~Type of blog it is: Life in general  (If you don’t fit in anywhere else, you’ll probably fit in here.)

~Tell us a little something about yourself: Foremost, I’m a mum, wife, and domestic engineer. Professionally, I am a physical therapist who went on to become a medical doctor and later specialized in pediatrics. I went on hiatus several months after I gave birth. I’ve recently gone back to work, albeit part-time. Part-time work arrangements are heaven sent!

~If you had only 1 wish, what would it be and why?Difficult to choose just one. Hmmm. I’d wish for my daughter and future children to grow up to be responsible and God-fearing members of the society.

~What’s your favorite thing about where you live and why? We live in the tropical city state of Singapore. Everything here works. We have a very effective and efficient government. I also love the cultural diversity that Singapore has to offer.

~What’s #1 on your ‘Bucket List’? Surprise! I don’t do bucket lists. I have long term and short term goals though.  Does this make me sound like a very serious person? I tell you, I am not.

~3 words to describe yourself would be…? Impressionable. Straightforward. Emotional.

~1 little known fact about you is…? I spend so much time on my hair. Wash, blow dry, iron. Only to tie it in a pony at the
last minute. There goes the effort!  Oh and I cry at the movies too!

~1 vice of yours is…? Salted potato chips and all sorts of junk food. Except chocolates. Nom. Nom.

~Why did you start blogging? I started blogging in 2008. My blog was a personal journal of sorts. Most of my old posts are still unpublished. Then motherhood happened. I began to take up blogging again in March of this year after we’d gone traveling abroad. I was feeling trapped and lonesome as a newly minted SAHM. And, there was this overwhelming need to reach out to fellow mums and interact with them. Blogging has done that for me.

~What’s your favorite thing about blogging? The sense of belongingness that it gives me. And the opportunity to cultivate friendships. I have recently gone on play dates with fellow mummies here. We all “met “ via twitter!

~What do you think makes for a successful blog? I am no blog guru. But I believe that being honest and true to your beliefs and values is essential. Just keep it real.

~3 words to describe your blog would be…? I don’t really have 3 words to describe my blog. How about I let you describe it for me? =)

~What’s 1 blog (besides yours) that you think everyone should check out? There are a lot of wonderful blogs out there. Since I am only allowed one, I’d like you all to check out Germaine’s Blog: http://kiddothings.blogspot.com/. She’s one of the few online friends who’s very encouraging and supportive. I hope to meet her in real life someday.
