Wedding stuff from Chinatown

Went over to Chinatown with Mr. Keir and Mama to check out if there's any suitable Chinese Customary Wedding items for us..
and here are some of the loots...

There're tons of shops selling traditional chinese wedding items at Chinatown market or Chinatown complex as it's commonly known as.
It's the market nearest to CK departmental store.

They've plenty of wedding bedsheets to choose from with prices as low as $30++ for a simple bedsheet set to $60+ for a silk wedding bed sheet.

We didn't really want the traditional wedding bedsheet cos you'll probably only use it for a while. So we got a white based floral bedsheet as our wedding bedsheet. At least we can still use it after the wedding.

Hmm not sure if this is considered reasonably priced, didn't take a picture of our bedsheet cos Mr. Keir kept it in a rather inaccessible area as soon as we got back..Zzzz.

Anyway we'll need a plain based bedsheet cos our bedframe is read. Most wedding bedsheets are red and it's gona look awful on our bed frame.

Here's our storage bedframe!

Love the swaroski crystals on the it a classy feel...
The bed sheet we bought was 450 thread count, comes with quilt cover as well an it costs us $90.
Bought the comforter at $30 => gave us $10 discount so total = $120.

Still cheaper than robinsons i guess...

to give our bed that extra "wedding" kind of feel, we bought the pair of cushion above for $26.

THe wedding ang pows there average about $1.30 - $1.80 for the bigger pieces...and ooh i bought the wedding lamps online from another bride for only $10..ahaha...cos u probably only gona use it on your wedding day. not looking at spending too much for such stuffs.

As you can see, we try to simplify the traditional stuffs as much as possible.
So we only bought

- wedding cushion (shown above)
- few packs of wedding ang pow packets (shown above)
- Red umbrella with frills ($10)
- Wedding stickers ($1.80 each)
- "wedding" bedsheet

Save costs!!

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 …
