Wesak Day Weekend

So Mid Year Exam’s finally OVER for the brat rat.  What a load off my Cass’ shoulders.  Next will be getting the exam papers back, report card day 😖, Jogathon day (I’ll be running with the brat rat again!) and sports day but before all these stress, it’s celebratory time!!  Celebration of end of exam, two public holidays in a week (how awesome can that be!) and upcoming school holidays 🤩

We had our first round of celebration yesterday at My Town as it’s a public holiday (Wesak Day). Hubs had lunch with us at the mall before rushing back to his kitchen and office, leaving us to shop till we drop for 5 hours before taking Grab home.  If not for our part-time helper who was coming at 5:30 p.m., we could have continued shopping for another 2-3 hours, have our dinner there and return home at 9 p.m.. Us girls just love shopping, don’t you too?😉

We first had lunch at myBurgerLab but my bon viveur hubs wasn’t too contented with his Beautiful Mess burger. While the girls enjoyed digging into their sinful burgers with loads of curly fries (OMG!),  I was disappointed with my bun-free low carb burger  as well, as the there was too much sauce on the lettuce. I find the sauce too heavy and it really defeats the purpose of having a low-carb meal when the sauce is too sweet and salty.

After our ‘appetizer’ at myBurgerLab, we had our main meal at a Japanese restaurant 😋

Sorry I can’t remember the name of the Japanese restaurant as I didn’t manage to snap a picture of the restaurant coz my Huawei phone died on me AGAIN after a few photos!  Lately my Huawei has been showing signs of exhaustion and symptoms of a premature death.  I actually intend to get myself a new Huawei phone but with the current  US trade ban on Huawei, I may not be getting a Huawei phone.  What brand of mobile phone do you think I should get?  I still like Huawei though but can’t live without Google. What’s a phone to me if it means no access to Google?  Hopefully Washington keeps its promise to row back on its ban on Huawei.

Cass shopped for more books while her two sisters enjoyed a movie at the cinema.

We tried another new boba tea – Daboba.  A very popular bubble tea brand from Taiwan, Daboba claims to have the most fragrant brown sugar pearl milk tea, so rich in flavour that it leaves you wanting for more. But I think it’s no biggie, Daboba tastes almost the same as its competitors and my review is based on what I tried, which was grass jelly milk tea with 25% sugar. Alycia and Sherilyn both tried the milk tea with cheese and commented that it tastes “OK only” 😐

Our trip to My Town will never be complete without covering at least 20 rounds at H&M with countless trips to the fitting room 💃  If only time was on my side, I’ll be gamed for a shopping marathon and walk over 10 hours at the mall without an aching muscle!  I used to do that with my friends before the girls came along.  Thanks to hubby for the shopping spree treat yesterday 😘

5 Reasons to Consider Life Insurance

While it’s something you never want to face, the reality of needing life insurance is one that’s necessary to prepare for. Though it might seem like a gamble, life insurance has benefits worth considering in the long run. Here are some reasons to start thinking about life insurance in preparation for a secure future. Try googling life insurance companies near you to find a good match (e.g. life insurance elk grove ca).

Extra Expenses
The cost of burial can add up quickly, and it is the most immediate cost a family faces in the event of a loved one’s death. Having life insurance in place ensures the funeral cost is already paid for, easing the burden on those left behind.

Lost Income
In the case of a spouse’s death, life insurance replaces his or her income. This alleviates the financial burden on the remaining spouse, who may have been relying on that joint income, especially in the case of supporting children.

Children
Children are a great incentive to obtain life insurance. In the case of a parent’s death, the lessened financial impact on the remaining parent will allow him or her to continue to care for children as if nothing has changed and can include saving up for college tuition.

Estate Taxes
In the case of inheritance upon death, taxes on the passed-on estate will come swooping in. These can be pricey, so it helps any heirs to have assistance for their inheritance, especially if they haven’t planned for or aren’t aware of the costs associated with it.

Debt
No one wants to leave the unnecessary burden of added debt on someone else’s shoulders. If you have life insurance, it can cover those finances that would otherwise be passed down to the rest of the family to take care of. A spouse or children would become responsible for any debt left behind, such as the mortgage.

Planning for your family’s sake is always worth it. That’s why it’s important to consider life insurance earlier instead of later when your chances of needing it are greater.
