ED married his college sweetheart in 2001, and just when things were settling down, he embarked on his journey as a parent in June 2005. Growing up, ED was never good with children, and starting a blog about his kids, was the last thing on his mind. However, things changed through time Even Mummy has started blogging, and you can find her at Mum’s the Word! (http://www.mumseword.com)
Besides writing on parenting, ED is also a speaker who teaches on building strong marriages and works with Focus on the Family on modules such as “Parenting with Confidence”. He has also delivered lectures at Nanyang Polytechnic and Temasek Polytechnic on Social Media. In 2012, Edmund was invited by the Media Development Authority (MDA) to be a member of the Media Literacy Council. He was invited as a speaker for the Ministry of Education at the MOE Excel Fest 2013 to speak about Parenting in the 21st century and has also spoken on MDA’s “Safer Internet Day 2013”.
ED Unloaded has worked with organizations like Shell, Julia Gabriel, I love Children, UFamily. He has went on sponsored trips with Hong Kong DisneyLand, Club Med, Darwin Australia with SilkAir, and South Korea together with Chan Brothers and Korean Tourism. He has also worked with numerous PR companies like Ogilvy. Through Blogging, Nathan has even had a chance to become a male model!
As Ed grew as a father, he became an expert at playing hide-and-seek and other mindless peek-a-boo games! The first addition to the family was a baby girl.
Nicole was born on June 19, 2005. Besides having the same birthday as her father, Nicole has the inevitable task of being one of the leading actress on this blog! However, she seems to have a passion for the limelight, and she is always ever-ready for Daddy to ‘snap’ a picture of her.
Nathan was born on 6 Feb, 2007. We wanted No. 2 really quick, as we wanted them to be close. After having Nathan, we realized that boys are very different from girls, and we could tell the differences in their character almost immediately. Nathan is the strong silent type, with a charming personality, them seems to melt our heart every time.
Nadine was born on 15 April, 2008. Affectionately know as “Mei-Mei” (Little sister), she is a real “sweetie” of the family. She seems to be speaking the fastest, and has a real passion for music. She dances by herself when she hears her favorite melody, and she is also the most “Smiley” of all of our children. Hopefully, she will continue to bring joy where ever she goes!
And together…they are my family!
As Parenting is never easy, ED has also made many new friends along the way. Through the journey, Edmund has enjoyed networking with various organizations and meeting many interesting people along the way.
It has certainly been fun, and we hope that you will enjoy reading about our adventures!
