About

With my gang outdoors (picture taken at East Coast Park in my country Singapore, 2021)

Greetings! Welcome to kelvinsmusings.com!

I’m Kelvin from sunny Singapore where I live with my lovely wife and two boys, born 2009 and 2011.

In this blog www.kelvinsmusings.com, I muse about…
1. …my unfinished journey as a husband & stay home father of two sons (the youngest with autism),
2. … values I hold dear, like those involving parenting & family
, and how to advocate for them to the wider community,
3. …the ups & downs of my writing life, and
4. …issues dealing with work, education (I teach part-time
), society & life.

(A fuller explanation about my blog’s genesis and purpose can be found here)
