Traditional Wedding Invite Template

I've spent sometime typing out the traditional wedding invites with Chinese wordings.
Gosh i thought it was relatively easy till i get down to doing it in photoshop format.

After which i deeply regretted. Could have done it in microsoft word too. Just that photoshop makes the layout easier i guess?

Anyway the chinese wordings are so cheem. To make it worse, it's supposed to be in a vertical format, making the layout all the more trickier.

But the good thing is, I've completed mine! Ahha..as we only need less than 20 pieces of traditional invites with chinese wordings for the relatives, we've no choice but to DIY.

Print, cut and insert it ourselves.
Luckily i found this old treasure of mine. = Patterned Scissors!
bought it while i was doing scrap booking sometime back and i remember at a steal too! Finally it came into good use. hehz.

2 major advantages of using the scissors. Firstly the inserts look so much nicer. Secondly, cos it's patterned even if you did not managed to cut a straight line, it's absolutely ok as it's not obvious at all. I've problems cutting things straight somehow..lolx



Although it may not look as professional as the usual hot stamped gold or silver traditional invites, we're still pretty satisfied with our DIY project.

Though we have to rush through this by CNY so that the invites can be distributed whilst visiting and that we probably had a few squabbles here and there, Mr. Keir still agrees that the sense of satisfaction upon completion of this project is simply great!

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!

Alright …

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 …
