Bad Experience @ Modern Maternity, Harbourfront




It all started with the ‘auntie’ me who wanted to use this $10 voucher given to me during my previous purchase there. Bought a dress at $69.30 after 30% discount, UP $99.00


It was the first maternity shop I’ve stepped into and the first maternity dress I bought from a retail store. Though the shopping experience the first time was so-so, they were no doubt very pushy but being a first time mummy and excited about trying on so many maternity dresses, I ain’t too particular yet.
Perhaps also cos I’ve bought a dress there eventually hence the service was still “bearable”

Alrighty so I went back a 2nd time hoping to utilize my $10 voucher, even though I think the clothes there are just quite ok and a bit over priced for the material but if I can $10 off a piece then it should be reasonable.

But the 2nd experience there is totally disgusting!
Firstly, they were even more pushy and aggressive than ever!
I always think when dealing with preggie mummies you gotta be more considerate in your service and not overly pushy like how the retail staffs at Modern Maternity behaved.
Kept shoving pieces of clothes at my face even though I’ve mentioned like oh I don’t really want sleeveless but they went on and on to take different sleeveless dresses and tops and pester me to try.
Hey which part of the no sleeveless do they not understand?

I’ve to keep repeating myself and when I mentioned that I do not need pants, they did the same, continue to shove pants to me. =___=

To make matter worse, I asked about the voucher and was told that I can’t use it with any other promotions or discount, they are having a 10% - 30% discount on most items you see. This makes the voucher pretty useles.

And so I eventually tried on 2 pieces, despite the fact that the dress seems a bit too tight, the retail assistant insisted it looks ok and maternity dresses are stretchable when obviously the arms area are too tight for me.
I’m not an idiot, I am aware that most maternity dresses are stretchable but only at the tummy area loh hello!!!

So the faces turned so black when they sensed that I’m not purchasing anything at all.
The moment I say nothing is suitable, they turned into mutes immediately and I was treated invisible.

This will definitely be the last time I’m gona step into Modern Maternity ever again.

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…

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 …

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 …
