The Traditional Tea Dress

Went for a fitting to select my tea dress...hmm.. After trying on 3 different types of Kua, most of them look alike to me.

And so I asked, So what type of body shape is suitable for the Cheong Sam? Cos I always have this thinking that you must be really slim to wear it. which is only half correct.

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 bedfra
