Where to get a Tux for the Groom?

Reckon that's what every groom needs.
and since it's gona be worn only twice - unless your groom has tons of formal functions to attend, we do not want to pay so much for his tuxedo shirt.

As we're the Budget & Practical couple - recap: he spent $20 on his shoes (Moda Paolo) and me spent $30+ on my bridal heels from TANGS Studio (70% discount)
In a place like Singapore, it's GSS all year round la. So there're plenty of good buys out there if you have the time to search and shop for it. 
Cheap buys may not necessary equates to low quality products.

So for his Tuxedo shirt, I've browsed tons and tons of forums and realized that Tailor-make seemed a popular choice among the gentlemen.
Since the price is probably around the same or even Cheaper than the off the racks shirt you get from our G2000, Rhaoul etc.

We've decided to try this popular, highly raved tailor/ seamstress located at Genting Lane, since it's relatively near us.

Guan Hua Warehouse 
#02-02
85 Genting Lane
Tel: 6741 3012

Look for Auntie Jenny, they're very much like a factory with a team of seamstress and they are open on Saturdays too!

Just that it's really crowded on a Saturday we waited for like more than 45mins loh.





Here's his white tuxedo shirt. You can customize the type of collar, sleeves you want too and it costs us  $75 only. Cheaper than what you get outside right?


Here's another black shirt with cufflinks Mr. Keir tailor-made. The material is soft and super comfy that he's gona wear it for work too.
Best of all this one cost $35 only! and it's tailor made, we chose some fabric design for the collar and sleeves.

Didn't get to take a picture of Mr. Keir in the shirts alone though.

So Auntie Jenny is definitely value for money.
Highly recommend others to tailor-make not just your tux, even for your working clothes there too!

Our 7 Day 6 Nights Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary Preview

Here's a preview of our Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary for our trip to Taiwan earlier this month in May 2017. You can click on the respective days for a detailed post.

And so we finally embarked on our journey to Taiwan onboard Singapore Airlines! Thanks to Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promo, we decided to splurge a little on the air tickets. The air tickets cost about $1,440 for 2 adults and 1 3.5 yr old.


We spent a total of 7 days 6 nights in Taiwan altogether. But in order to make our Taiwan trip more child-friendly, relaxing,  and to cut down on travelling time, we merely visited the North part of Taiwan primarily - Hsinchu, Yilan and Taipei.

It's never easy travelling with a young one, hence we should not be too ambitious when it comes to planning your Taiwan Child Friendly itinerary. Good thing is, Mr Keir and I have always preferred a chillax itinerary. We're not the type of tourist who loves to jam pack the full day and visit 101 attractions in a trip.

We engag…

Taiwan Kids friendly Accommodation with slides - not your usual list!

And so from a mere idea of bringing Sticky Bean with us to Taiwan, this idea was put into action with Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promotion where you get to pay only $70 for a child's ticket! Though it's not exactly the cheapest option for flying to Taiwan, we thought to pay a little more for better service and not to mention safety since it will be Sticky Bean's first time traveling on a relatively longer flight. Her first plane ride was a really short one to KL, a mere 1 hour away.

If she's manageable on the flight, we can then consider budget airlines such as Scoot or even Jetstar for our subsequent travels.

So why Taiwan?
There are plenty of reasons for our choice other than both Mr. Keir and myself love Taiwan for the food and hospitality. I'm sure you may have come across Awesome kids friendly accommodation with slides and other themed rooms in Taiwan that are trending in facebook. That was one of the many reasons why we want to go Taiwan too!

The Miscarriage: : the Mini Confinement after Miscarriage

When it comes to confinement following a miscarriage, there are 101 versions of old wives tales to confuse you.
There're people who say (such as doctors and gynaes), since the pregnancy period is short, less than 3 months, it didn't affect our body much so we actually do not need to do confinement.
But my gynae did mention that of course i can try to avoid the cold, icy stuffs still.

And then there will be the extreme ones who'd think going through a miscarriage is more damaging to a woman's body than giving birth itself and hence one must observe the rules of confinement and the best is to do it for 2 weeks.
But think about this, where on earth to get 2 weeks mc? we are only entitled 14 days mc a year leh...

And then there's the reasonable ones and I'm blessed that both my mother and mother-in-law and even my brother's mother-in-law, who runs a chinese medical hall (TCM) belongs to this group.
So naturally, i fall into this group as well.
According to TCM …
