About Me

I am happily married and I am mother of five year old daughter and seven months son. I am from Menchari, a very isolated village in Bartsham. I now live in Thimphu with my family and 72 year old mother.

Dechen in K2

Dechen was in K2, Kuensel on August 2, where daycare centres and early childhood development was covered. I just thought putting about it here would help me keep record about it.

So bogged down to add anything more at the moment. I can only say that I am a proud mother.
