A Unique Wedding Invites Idea

Having done the traditional invites for the relatives, here're the rest of the invites for the modern guests.

Yes it's our wedding invitation in form of a movie ticket. As we're doing a Cinematic night, so thought this idea will be perfect.

Initially it was just an idea while sharing with a colleague on our wedding theme. Who knows it became an idea came true!!
I'm very lucky to have met another bride who had the same theme as us! She shared her ideas and templates with me as well.

and so this is another DIY project of our wedding. Also she's introduced a very reasonably priced printer to myself and i've actually tried using this printer for my events for my work.

So when it comes to printing these movie tickets with perforation. The price is really reasonable! It costs as much as what our venue is charging us for printing 200 pieces of traditional invites loh.
I printed 150 pieces of movie tickets though.

Tadah. Look at the perforation. All at the same costs as printing a traditional invite.

It's just that there's alot of manual work to be done when you DIY your invites. First is the artwork, i resized and re-layout couple of times to get the measurements right. Then it's the sending for print and collection followed by the slotting in of these tickets in cards provided by our wedding venue.

So we've to measure the tickets and use a penknife to cut the slot to hold the tickets.
The other killer is tying the silver string as a decor, didn't know that kind of strings can be so difficult to tie.

Also we DIY our map and directions, print it out, cut it and inserted them into our invites too.

Very much like a production line, we managed to complete all these somehow..phewzzz....
Although it may not look very pro, but it's done with our utmost sincerity and made with tons of love and effort for our beloved guests. =)

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 …
