Iron Hug

Since Vera turned 5 last month, she has been into hugging with a vengeance.

Her grip is tenacious. It's almost a strangle, and we have to pry her hands apart with some force.

To think Vera has lived to this day to give me the longest, tightest hugs I've ever gotten in my life. She won't ever learn to speak, but she sure has learnt to love.

And it is pure and simple every time.

All we can ask for is love!

Love shown through sincere actions like a hug from a child. That's what we all need the most today. Once again Vera, you inspire me.

Dear Mummy,

We thoroughly admire your strength and courage that you put out on a daily basis, and we wish the only best for Vera.

On behalf of the National Library Board (NLB), we would like to invite you to pledge your blog to the Singapore Memory Project as part of efforts to collect memories that are already manifested in existing online channels.

The Singapore Memory Project (SMP) is a national initiative to collect, preserve and provide access to Singapore’s knowledge materials. Spearheaded by NLB, the SMP aims to build a national collection of content in diverse formats (including print, audio and video), to preserve them in digital form, and make them available for discovery and research.

By pledging your blog to SMP, you are affirming that every memory matters. Whether your posts are an account of your daily life, or an expression of your thoughts, the SMP hopes to find a home for your memories so that it can help build towards an understanding of Singapore. You will also receive a badge that you can display on your blog in recognition of your contributions.

Contributors to this blog pledging initiative will be listed on Singapore Memory portal’s blog pledging webpage. All blogs pledged to SMP will archived using NLB’s web harvesting software, in addition to images of each blog’s landing page.
