[Photo Journal] A Daughter Valentine Love


Myra here.

Every Tuesday, we share photographs from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.

Today is extra special as it is Valentine’s Day. While I am sure most of the blogosphere would be celebrating romantic love, I thought of being a little different by sharing parent-daughter love instead. When my daughter turned 14 in 2015, I crowd-sourced a Katorse Playlist of 14 songs that people/friends from all over the world think she should know about. And so when she celebrated her 15th birthday two months ago, I created these poster-memes for her as part of what I called the Quince Series. In keeping with the 14th of February, I would only be sharing 14 of them.

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).
