The Girls Are Home!

My two big babies are finally back home after a 9-day adventure in Hong Kong without their parents bossing around them.  So glad to have them home.

Alycia and Drama Queen with their ground assistant and Drama Queen avoiding the paparazzi:

With travel assistance request (which is a FOC service), the girls’ passports were safe-kept by the air-stewardess during the flight. On ground, the passports together with the children will be handed over to the parents / kin. Names of parents / kin must be given to the Airlines. I only realized today that with a ground assistant, Alycia and Sherilyn’s passports were not even stamped in KLIA and Hong Kong Airport.

Home sweet home finally:

BSF (Best Sisters Forever):

The girls’ last dinner in Hong Kong ~ a sumptuous grilled lobster and shabu-shabu meal prepped by their loving koo ma.

We reached home at 10-ish p.m. last night. The girls unpacked their loot, comprising of 80% junk food, albeit some are good quality and ‘healthier’ snacks like organic pop corns, Royce chocolates and some Japanese jelly and chewing gum.  We had supper of Burger King, bought from KLIA.

When a tween and a teenager go on a vacation without their health freak mom and dad controlling them, you can be rest assured of luggage bags bursting with snacks, toys and electronic gadgets.

Health freak mom would like to try one stick of Pocky Squeeze, just. one. stick. only ok, coz this isn’t available in Malaysia yet (?).

Drama Queen’s favorite Japanese orange chewing gum, costing over HKG50 a bottle.  And my favorite almond cookies; the girls also received a packet of emoji chocolates from koo ma:

Too cute ~ Royce Decoration Ball, a X’mas tree decor that comes with Royce chocolates inside the ball; Japanese jelly (the girls favorite jelly):

Luggage bags scattered on our living room floor; guess the bags will be lying there as we will need to pack again today for our trip back to Ipoh tomorrow and then to Singapore next week.

I’d like to say a BIG thank you once again to my eldest SIL and BIL for all the gifts, love, care and time showered on the girls during their stay in Hong Kong.

Make Over This Christmas

The girls and I will be making a trip back to my hometown tomorrow.  Besides planning on a day-trip to explore the  Gua Tempurung caves, I am bringing them to our regular hair salon for a no-frills and cheap hair cut. I definitely need a trim of my  waist-length hair.

After going through months of severe hair loss due to anemia, my hair has finally stopped shedding like dog’s fur.   My locks has now become really thin and limp.  I recall the days earlier this year where my hair would stick to my fingers and come off my scalp each time I go through my wet hair after a hair wash. It was so bad that  I would count how many strands of hair I shed each day.  I thought I was going to go bald. I Googled ’causes for hair fall’ and discovered that one of the reasons for severe hair fall is anemia.  Things are looking up now that my total blood count has improved significantly.

If I am invited to a  wedding dinner now, I think I will need to get some hair bundles or loose wave weave to conceal my less than perfect hair.

These days, wigs are fast becoming as commonplace as hair-color, acrylic nails and body-shapewear for that instant boost in beauty, confidence, and overall fabulousness.  I have never tried wearing a wig but am game to try.  My two younger daughters will definitely think it’s a cool and fun thing to wear a wig to a party, especially a colored one.

With wigs, there are limitless styles.  We can change our hair in an instant from long to bob, wavy to straight.  Whether it is a lace frontal closure or a hair extension, we can choose a wig that enhances our natural hair or make a statement with a bold, new look.  Either way, you have total control over your style, head to toe.

Are you game to try on some funky or natural looking wigs this Christmas and New Year’s Day? 😉
