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! 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!

BTO Keys Collection and BTO Door Opening Ceremony

And so after a long 4 years wait, our BTO is finally ready for keys collection. To be honest we totally forgot about out BTO and was pleasantly surprised to receive an SMS from HDB to inform us of our BTO keys collection date. That was when we frantically tried to hunt for an ID. Ok to cut the story short, here's what happened on the BTO keys collection day as well as what we did for our "BTO Door Opening Ceremony". There really wasn't an official BTO door opening ritual or ceremony in fengshui. I guess this is just a Singapore custom. Though we do not have a religion, in particular, we just did it for an ease of mind. Love the  living room view from our 30th storey BTO view from our Service Yard BTO Key Collection Process at HDB Time took: less than an hour It was a very straightforward and easy process. Here's what you need to prepare, assuming that you are taking the loan from HDB. Identity cards Marriage certificate if you are buying

Our Muji Home Reno Journey | Electrical works and Aircon Trunking

Before embarking on our Muji Home renovation journey, I never knew that the bulk of the work comes from the electrical wiring and the importance of electrical works. In fact, we totally overlooked that part. How many sockets needed and where to place them. Before we selected our ID, we met one of them onsite and the ID just went on asking us how many sockets and lighting point we need in this room, where we need the socket to be located at ...bla bla bla all of these during our first on-site meeting. Trust us, we never had such a pressurising consultation before. Tips for you A lesson learnt from our experience, perhaps before you even meet your IDs or contractors, spend some time in your BTO and visualise how you want to use the space and place your furniture. For us, we thought we can come to that much later when the renovation is almost complete but boy we are so wrong about that. You should already know how many sockets you need and where you want it to be placed from the be

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
