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!!

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
