Dallas is not a touristy place but they got nice restaurants, malls and even the proximity to places were well planned. I liked their houses made of bricks. It made a rustic view and feel as well as it's very homey.

And now this year as my son is in Primary 1 got a letter from him informing about the schedule of heath checks which includes height, weight, vision and audio tests as well as vaccination. Yes, vaccination. They have this for the kids and I know they monitor this as they requested us to hand them the baby book that contains the vaccination-history of my son. This is a big relief to me, as a mum we want things for our kids especially the health and wellness of our children.
Kudos to Ministry of Education and Health Promotion Board for this initiative! Way to go!!

"But that's the glory of foreign travel, as far as I am concerned. I don't want to know what people are talking about. I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything. Suddenly you are five years old again. You can't read anything, you have only the most rudimentary sense of how things work, you can't even reliably cross a street without endangering your life. Your whole existence becomes a series of interesting guesses.
...Is there anything, apart from a really good chocolate cream pie and receiving a large unexpected cheque in the post, to beat finding yourself at large in a foreign city on a fair spring evening, loafing along unfamiliar streets in the long shadows of a lazy sunset, pausing to gaze in shop windows or at some church or lovely square or tranquil stretch of quayside, hesitating at street corners to decide whether that cheerful and homy restaurant you will remember fondly for years is likely to lie down this street or that one? I just love it. I could spend my life arriving each evening in a new city"
