The face behind the blog – The 5xmom

I got this tag from Doris and it is something I think I will love doing. So, here is the fastest response to a meme.

Who am I?


Mom to five of the above kids. Of course, the pic is photoshopped because my #4 son died and I only had the #5 ten months later. The lowest right is #4, pic pasted onto the real photos.


Long ago, when I had only three kids, I used to work. As an Executive Secretary, an over-paid, under-work position. But nah, now I earn three times that last salary as a blogger. So, I can be proud of that fact. I traded the job for my kids, more photos can be viewed from my Flickr Family album.


Now, I am the full time mom who is a full time blogger, learning new things every day. This shot is taken by my kid with my Sony Ericsson K800i photo when I was looking. See the expression when I concentrate on blogging?


This is my only ‘working colleague’ on school days when the other kids have gone to school. He will be going to kindy next year so I am looking forward to having that five hours to myself, alone. I will be totally free in the morning. Maybe I will volunteer time in my church, doing some clerical stuffs. But I wonder if I am going to be spending time making money online instead? Hmmm…I shall leave it to God. He may arm-twist me or who knows…..


This is the man I have been married to for 19 years, lived in for 21 years. Phew…that’s a mighty long time. Half of my life, I had spent with him. Hmmm…we never get tired of each other yet. Not yet.

In case you are new to the 5xmom, my name is Lilian and I go by the name of 5xmom for obvious reason, as seen in pic #1. I blog about food, parenting, women lifestyles, photography, make money, Christianity, bereavement, critical ill children (needs), wacky stuffs and of course, my personal blog. I had blogged for almost four years and I own over 15 domains, with about 10 active blogs.

I am going to tag these guys who just got their own domains:

and please, please, please, who else wanna do a blog post like this so that we can all get to know you better?
