Sassy Mama Singapore

Although Expat Bostonians has been quietly languishing, I have done a lot of writing over at Sassy Mama Singapore this year. Here are the articles I’ve written in the second half of the year.

This was my fifth piece in the series of articles I’ve written about primary school in Singapore from the perspective of a Expat (PR) teacher and parent.

Expat View–Reflections After a Full Year in Local Primary School After P1 was over and done with, I had to ask myself, “Was it worth it?”


The girls and tech series became my passion project and reflects more than a month of work and countless emails sent across the globe

Girls and Technology Why are girls underrepresented in technology and what can we do about it? I spoke to nineteen women on three continents for this story between the ages of 17 and retirement to get their input on this piece.

Tech Classes in Singapore  Where can you little one learn to code or play with robots?

Best Tech Gifts for Girls (and Boys) Although I specifically looked at the toys marketed to/meant to appeal to girls, any child would enjoy these toys to get them interested in STEM

A review of Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea

Tokyo Disney Resort (Disneyland and DisneySea) My tips and tricks for taking the family to Tokyo Disney.

I’m working on a piece about Hawaii with kids for Sassy Mama. I’m heading into the hospital for the next week or two, so look for it in mid to late February.

    Dear Crystal, I’ve enjoyed following your blog and your commentary elsewhere. Thank you for your insight and best wishes.

  2. Hello there Crystal! First I wanted to say thanks for this blog- it has been a great resource for me as I planned my move to Singapore. While we are at really different places in life it has been great reading posts from someone who is similar to me in some reservations about Singapore ( censorship , anti gay etc) and still really enjoy living here 🙂

    Also- I am a lady engineer so I wanted to say awesome work on the girls and tech pieces! If you’re looking for a fun activity with your girls (maybe not the youngest- small parts O.o) I highly recommend getting a breadboard and some basic pieces ( resistors, battery , LED) and playing around. Its surprisingly easy and crazy satisfying to build something from scratch 🙂

    Anywho- thanks for the awesome blog and general posts 🙂 Cheers!
