Home Is Where the Heart Is

The Choos’ favourite ‘pak tor’ spot in CCK Town is right at home in their four-room flat in Teck Whye!

For date night, there is nothing more romantic and relaxing for Josiah and Denise than to kick back their heels, tuck into a good meal (delivered to their doorstep) and pick a good show on Netflix after putting their 11-month-old daughter, Jenica, to bed.

This way, they can unwind and have some couple time, and also be available to tend to Jenica if needed.

“It is the best place to have a date. We don’t even need to go out physically,” said Denise. Killing two birds with one stone!

Their winsome photo entry, which shows the couple carrying their baby in matching outfits in front of their home, garnered the most likes in CCK Town Council’s Valentine’s Day photo contest.

The Choos won a pair of Natureland spa vouchers which they hope to use for massages to unwind all the knots in their backs that they have earned as new parents.

They got into the habit of enjoying their “me-time” at home when they were jet setting cabin crew. Whenever they were back in Singapore, all they wanted to do was to stay home for some much-needed R&R.

Even though Josiah still works as a cabin crew, Denise has since become a personal assistant. Then with Jenica born shortly before the Circuit Breaker period last year, staying home became the norm.

And with the Covid-19 pandemic still ongoing, the couple prefers to spend time at home together, except for the occasional grocery or shopping jaunts to Lot One shopping mall nearby. Home is a four-room flat that the Choos share with Denise’s mum and brother.

Living with the family has been a boon, said Denise, especially since everyone has been working from home. It means that not only has she been able to bond more with little Jenica, but she also has more help from her husband, mum and brother.

Denise said: “Home is where we really spent a lot of our time since last year, and it’s a very comfortable place for us.”
