When You’ve Decided On A Beach Wedding


MillyBridal Wedding Dresses

Congratulations that he proposed to you! Now that wedding bells are starting to ring, there’s really quite a bit to do to plan a wedding of your dreams. Apart from the wedding date, one of the first planning decisions you’ll have to make is choosing a wedding venue . It’s not always the easiest decision, but a good way to start is to decide if you’d prefer a more formal or more casual wedding. If a laid-back, casual wedding is your goal (and you’d like to get married in a warmer month) a beach wedding venue can be an ideal setting. A beach wedding is best for couples who prefer a little adventure and prefer something a little different.

If you’ve already settled on a beach wedding, the next thing to do is to look for your dream beach wedding dresses.

A beach wedding would also probably mean that your dream dress is more understated and elegant than flouncy and embellished, and you really don’t mind ditching high heels for sandals or even go bare-footed!

When you plan a beach wedding, it is likely that fewer people will be there;  but for many couples, that’s a plus! It gives you an excuse to spend more time with a tighter group of people that you actually want to spend time with. At a ‘traditional’ wedding you only get a couple of hours.   No second cousins or random friends of your parents here! 😉

When it comes to choosing your wedding dress, you can opt to shop for it online or offline. MillyBridal is a must-shop stop when you are searching the web for the dress of your dreams. They have a great site with stylists who are available online to help you find the dress of your dreams.  You can ask them anything from styling and sizing advice and tips on the perfect accessories for your dress, or just a second opinion.  They carry some absolutely stunning elegant gowns that you’ll sure to love.

At MillyBridal, most of the dresses are made-to-order. You can choose a standard size or custom measurements and their tailors will craft each dress to order.  Tailoring time takes between 8 – 10 days and it takes 3-6 days for your dress to arrive.

With a reasonable return policy, good customer service, and exclusive dress styles, MillyBridal is one of the best options for buying a wedding dress online.

Whether you are looking for plus size wedding dresses, petite wedding dresses, sexy, ball, mermaid, vintage or even maternity wedding dresses, you’ll sure to find them at MillyBridal.

Couples often wonder if they should have the wedding inside or out, mountain side or in the jungle and so on; but stop for a minute and just think about how amazing it would be to celebrate your wedding at the beach. Imagine soft, white sands, gentle waves hitting the shore, the scent of salt on a Caribbean breeze, and the russet hues of a sunset adding beautiful splashes of colors to your wedding photography. A beach wedding is the perfect setting for the best day of your life where you’ll have no regrets.

The Best Shepherd’s Pie In Singapore

Shepherd’s pie is a meat pie with a crust or topping of mashed potato. The recipe has many variations, but the defining ingredients are minced red meat, cooked in a gravy or sauce with onions and sometimes other vegetables, such as peas, celery or carrots, and topped with a layer of mashed potato before it is baked. The pie is sometimes also topped with grated cheese to create a layer of melted cheese on top.

In my family, everyone loves pies. Shepherd’s pie is one of our favorites, as with any savory pies with filling of meat. My very own baking queen loves baking pies and she can make really yummo pies from scratch, from the pie crust to the ingredients. But the aftermath of her pie baking sessions stresses me out. Though I’d love to eat her homemade pies, the thought of cleaning the mess she makes in both the wet and dry kitchen turns me off.

Wouldn’t it be nice if delish and freshly baked pies can be ordered at just a few clicks of the mouse? That will be bliss for pie lovers! And yes you can certainly do that at shepherdspie.sg and have the tastiest and freshest pies delivered to your doorstep in a jiffy without breaking a sweat! All you have to do is go to www.shepherdspie.sg, the purveyor of the best shepherd’s pie in Singapore, who has been around since 2011.

The pies from shepherdspie.sg are baked fresh and their ingredients prepared fresh, so they have to be ordered one day in advance.  Check out their pies below:

Are you drooling already looking at the pie photos? Shepherd’s Pie Singapore have been receiving positive reviews from satisfied customers for their pies which are made up of a hearty filling of meat, a creamy and smooth layer of mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables.

My stomach is growling now!😋

Medical Alert Bracelets Save Lives

Medical alert bracelets and tags can be extremely important for people with diabetes and other life-threatening diseases or disorders. They can be life-saving.

Years ago, a friend’s aged mother with dementia and diabetes wandered off from her house in the early hours of the morning and was only found a day later.  She was finally found a few kilometers away from home by a group of senior citizens who were doing their morning walk rounds.  Fortunately my friend’s mother was wearing a medical alert bracelet that probably saved her life.  The medical alert bracelet had an emergency contact number and her medical condition engraved on it.

If you’ve been diagnosed with a chronic or life-threatening condition, have food or drug allergies, or take medications, then you should wear a medical alert bracelet.  If you are a caregiver, you should also wear a medical alert bracelet to alert emergency personnel of your loved one who needs attention.

A medical alert bracelet or medical identification tag is a small emblem or tag worn on a bracelet, neck chain, or on the clothing bearing a message that the wearer has an important medical condition that might require immediate attention. The tag is often made out of stainless steel, sterling silver, 18k gold plated or black gun plated.

On arrival to a hospital’s emergency department, one of the routine procedures of the evaluation of the critically ill, unconscious, or disoriented patients is to remove their clothing to inspect the body for a cause of their sudden alterations. In these situations, medical alert bracelets can be invaluable as a time saver.

Information That Should Be Put on a Medical Alert Bracelet
The message on your medical alert bracelet should be concise and to the point. “Diabetes” or other medical disorders should be engraved boldly on one side. The other side of the bracelet can have other information such as “insulin dependent” or “medication controlled”.  Other important information can include:

1. An emergency contact number
2. The name of your physician
3. A referral to another place for more information, for example “see wallet card for a full medical history”

Where to Purchase a Medical Alert Bracelet or Tag
There are many online shops selling fashionable medical alert bracelets and chains and one good online shop is u7jewelry.com.

Ordering medical alert bracelets is a breeze at U7jewelry.com. After choosing your choice of tag or bracelet, simply key in your medical condition, contact number and other details that you want to be engraved, choose your metal type and add to cart.  You can make the tag look more fashionable like a fashion jewelry by wearing the tag with a stylish gold chain necklace.

Besides medical alert bracelets, there are over hundreds of thousands of other beautiful jewelry at U7jewelry.com, ranging from summer jewelry, men’s jewelry, religious jewelry, sports jewelry, music jewelry, heart jewelry, customized jewelry and many more.

Shipping is free for orders of $200 and above at u7jewelry.com. Don’t forget to use promo code U7C to get a 30% discount off your bill.

How To Look Taller And Slimmer

Not all celebrities stand as tall as we imagine they are when they appear on screen. Some of Hollywood’s most famous celebrities are average in height. Though it may not seem like it on screen, celebs are human too, and they can be short too.

You may not have known that Victoria Beckham, Shakira, Emilia Clarke, Christina Aguilera and Scarlett Johansson are just some of the famous celebrities that fall under 5’4″. That’s because they know how to add a few inches to their height with some very clever styling tricks.

Let me show you some ways to master the illusion with the right tops and beautiful elegant dresses for women!

1. Flaunt your legs with short skirts and dresses
This is one of my favorite tricks to look taller! I am 5’2″ and I wear short skirts and short pants all the time 😉  While some of you may not feel comfortable walking around in a mini skirt, don’t be afraid to embrace a hemline that is a little shorter than you might usually go for. Your legs will definitely look longer than if you pick a dress or skirt that falls below your knees, like his Embroidery O-Neck Short Sleeve A-Line Dress and  from SheinStore.com

2. Go crop
Just like with your hemlines when it comes to skirts and dresses, the same can be applied for pants and jeans. If you show off a bit of ankle, it will give the illusion that your legs are too long for the trousers and you will immediately add a few inches to your height.

3. Try a crop top
If you wear a crop top with your high-waisted trousers and skirts, it will help to accentuate this illusion even further. Show off just a slither of skin though.

4. Wear skater dresses
Short women should fill their closets with items of clothing that highlight their assets, and one great area to draw attention to is your naturally smaller waist. Skater dresses do a great job of cinching at the waist, then flaring out toward the bottom hem, making you look noticeably leaner. Opt for a short  skater dress for the best results!

5. Embrace the high-waist
This is especially important when it comes to wearing slightly longer hemlines, including midi and pencil skirts. It will help create the illusion that the middle part of your body is much longer than the reality.

6. Wear something fitted
I’m not implying that you have to wear bodycon dresses to look tall, but wearing oversized, billowing clothing will accentuate how small you are. So, even if you want to wear a loose-fitted dress like this Embroidery Sleeveless Party Print Maxi Dress with flair skirt, just makes sure it at least nips in at the waist.

7. Dress all in one colour
If you’re dressed from head to toe in one colour, you won’t be breaking up your body and will inevitably look taller than if you chop yourself in two by wearing more than one hue.  Check out this elegant Party Pure Color Embroidery Stitching O-Neck Half Sleeve Bodycon Dress from SheinStore.com . The half sleeves make your arms look slender and longer and the short hem flaunts more of your legs.

New Mattress And Beds, Finally

I can finally tick off the first item on my 2019 New Year Resolution – replace old mattress and divan with new one! 👏

I’ve been wanting to replace our divan and mattress since many, many moons ago. But I’ve always been struck by busyness and procrastination.  Buying a new mattress and divan seemed like a colossal chore for me – from going to the furniture shop to getting the mattress and divan delivered to my place, moving the old mattress and divan out, cleaning up the mess, etc. seemed like a daunting task to me. I’m pretty laid back and resistant to change in certain ways.  I’d wanted to change the mattress since 10 years ago but with so many events that had transpired in my everyday hectic life, another 10 years zoomed past.  And what do I know? Hubs and I have been sleeping on the mattress for 20 years already!! And the mattress had been tainted with countless incidences of pee, poop and puke from our three babies and even blood. That mattress had been one hotbed for bacteria and other germs. And we slept on it every night  EEWWWW 🤢 🤮 🤧

Early this week, the mil and I went to the furniture shop and went on a frenzy there!  😬 Besides getting a new king size divan and mattress for my room, I got two solid wood single beds for Alycia and Sherilyn, a new study table for Sherilyn and the mil got herself a solid wood chair for her prayer altar.

My new king size divan and mattress:

Good-bye and thank you very much divan. You’ve served us very well the past 20 years 😘

Alycia’s battered 10.5-year old bed. She’s been sleeping on it ever since we moved into our condo 10.5 years ago. The wood planks are still in very good condition though.

I am still not done with my furniture shopping yet but we’re pretty sucked dry now after this large investment! Let us recoup our earnings first and I’ll get a sold wood sideboard for our dining area.  Mason Home Decor has a very classy  collection of quality solid wood furniture. I love solid wood furniture and Mason Home Decor has a very neat collection of it.

I so love this chic Mason Oak Solidwood sideboard for our dining area:

I also need to get a study table for Cass as she’s now jealous that both her sisters have a study table except her!

A solid wood sideboard and a study table will be in our to-buy furniture list now! Maybe next year 😉

Ok, enough on furniture! Let’s talk mooncakes 😋

Although Mooncake Festival is 1.5 months away, retailers are already displaying lanterns and mooncakes for sale!  And I see people buying mooncakes now!

I don’t really fancy eating mooncakes but if I see low sugar mooncakes, I’ll get one to try. My favorite flavors are assorted nuts and pandan.

This premium pandan single yolk mooncake made from real pandan leaves from Bing Liang Bakery looks divine and is now on a sale.  I’m so tempted to get one to try!

Do you like mooncake and what’s your favorite mooncake flavor?

Happy FriYay folks and have an awesome weekend!

Cool Summer Tops For 2019

As the days get longer and warmer, our sleeves usually get shorter or better yet, sleeveless.  Reach for organza, chiffon, thin cotton and sheer tanks and crops and you’ll be able to rely on them as the perfect layering device this time of the year.

Here are some of my favorite summer top picks to beat the sizzling summer temperatures.

2019 V Neck Lace Loose Casual Solid Colored Going Out Summer Stylish Women's Tank Top
You’ve most likely seen this  V-Neck Lace Sleeveless Casual Summer Stylish Women’s Tank Top all over your Insta feed already. It’s available at Ladyfas.com and costs no more than $20.

 

2019 Halter Tie Pleated Round Neck Simple Strap Solid Colored Women's Tank Top
You could get away with this Halter Tie Pleated Round Neck Simple Strap Solid Colored Women’s Tank Top from Ladyfas for work too, worn with a blazer over.  It comes in 10 gorgeous colors.

2019 Leopard Halter Slim Casual Pleated Turtleneck Sexy Stylish Club Women's Tank Top
The leopard print trend never seems to go out of fashion.  If you’re like me, who can never resist the lure of the leopard trend, check out this Leopard Halter Slim Casual Pleated Turtleneck Sexy Stylish Club Women’s Tank Top from Ladyfas.

Women's Mid Length Zipper Slash V Neck Loose Plus Size T-Shirt
The V neck with zipper is trending across designer to high-street brands. Flattering on pretty much every chest size, I think you can see why this style is a surefire winner.  This Mid Length Zipper Slash V Neck Loose Plus Size T-Shirt is great for work and casual.

Now that you have some ideas on what tops to wear and where to get them, it’s time to think about swimwear for this summer 😉

The Best Summer Vacation Apparel

Summer is the best time to go a vacation. If you’re thinking about where to spend your summer vacation, how about a relaxing beach or a low-key island?

If you’re going on a vacation or getaway, you have to bring the right clothes along for a stress-free holiday. Consider packing some travel-friendly summer vacation dresses.  I’ve curated a list of options that are lightweight and easy to fold up. Whether you’re on a long plane ride or exploring a new city, these designs will be comfortable and stylish.

When I go on a summer vacation, I like to pack along clothes made from fabric that dries up super quickly so that I can wash them in the hotel bathroom at night and wear them again the next day. Chiffon, polyester, nylon and thin breathable cotton dry the fastest. They are thin and space-saving.  Denim and dense cotton dry the slowest and take up a lot of space in the luggage bag too.

This Sexy Sling Floral Printed Backless Asymmetric Vacation Polyester Dress from Maxinina is light and thin. It’s suitable for the beach, outdoor and indoor on hot summer days.

Michelle Obama recently wore this breezy cotton midi dress with boho flair during a family vacation in France. The dress was just perfect for sightseeing; it was Pinterest-worthy. This is the type of outfit you’d save ahead of your upcoming getaway in order to remember to pack certain essentials.  Check out Michelle’s white sneakers too.  Who says you can’t pair sneakers with dresses?

You can find similar midi flair dresses at Maxinina at a fraction of the price. Check them out below.

When going on a summer vacation, remember to pack along your swimsuit or bikini for the Insta-worthy beach or pool shots!

You’ll get some inspiration from what Selena Gomez and her friends wore at a bestie’s upcoming nuptials – white swimsuits for a beach bachelorette bash.  Selena opted for a high-rise textured bikini that puts the bootay on display.

Selena wore a sporty snap-up bikini top while hanging out poolside. You can shop similar at Maxinina.

Sanitary Napkins Enriched With Negative Ions (Anions), Nano Silver and Far-Infrared Ray

Approximately 15,000 or more sanitary pads are required by a woman in her lifetime. It’s terrifying just to think of the amount of toxins already absorbed by my body over the years from the harsh chemicals used in these sanitary pads! Some brands of sanitary pads that I use cause itchiness and skin chafing at the groin area. This prompted me to Google for alternative healthier brands of sanitary pads and that’s when I found Lavender. I ordered the complete range from day pads to night pads and panty liners to try and love it!

Lavender is a brand of feminine hygienic sanitary pads embedded with Negative Ions (Anion), Nano Silver and Far-Infrared Ray chip. These sanitary napkins are enhanced with natural substances which improve and provide additional benefits to women’s health and wellness.

I find Lavender sanitary pads thin yet absorbent and very comfy to wear. What I like most about Lavender pads is that they are made from non-caustic soft materials (Hydrogel and cotton). It gives me a peace of mind to know that the materials are not made from recycled paper pulp and contains no caustic soda, bleach, softening agent and deodorizer. These robust chemicals are harmful to the skin’s acid and alkaline balance, and can cause to the propagation of microorganisms and infusorian and other skin disorders.

Interesting Facts On Negative Ions or Anions, Nano Silver and Far-Infrared Red

Benefits of Negative Ions or Anions
Often nicknamed as ‘vitamins of the air’, anions have a myriad of benefits to the human body such as energizing the body, improving sleep quality, activating different enzymes in the body, strengthening the body’s immune system, among others.

Benefits of Nano Silver
Nano Silver will not expire and has been used for the treatment of medical ailments for over 100 years due to its natural antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. It can kill more than 650 types of bacteria within minutes and it has the most powerful anti-bacterial effect due to its strong penetration into the bacteria structure. Its bacteria killing effectiveness is hundreds of times more than normal silvers and are used to treat burns, trauma, infection, purulence, acne, skin diseases, gynecological diseases that are caused by bacteria and fungi.

Benefits of Far-Infrared Ray
Far-Infrared Ray is able to promote cell activation, blood circulation and pain relief.  The Far-Infrared Ray contained in Lavender’s sanitary pad’s functional 3-in-1 core chip will help to regulate the overall body cell and stabilize a woman’s menstrual cycle.

Why I Choose Lavender Sanitary Pads over other brands of sanitary pads?

COMFORT LEVEL –  In comparison to the traditional fibre or rough cotton surface, I like it that Lavender sanitary pad surface is made from softer, thinner and more comfortable sterilized cotton. Strontium Ferrite is added to the anion-chip to prevent various diseases and vaginal itching. It is bio-magnetic and activates the body’s bio-currents.

AIR PERMEABILITY – Unlike most traditional sanitary pads that do not take into account the danger of bacteria multiplication and gynecological diseases, the base of Anion sanitary napkins is permeable to air but not to water.

WATER ABSORBING ABILITY – The surface’s absorption of fluid is three times greater than that of a traditional sanitary napkin. This is possible because there is sufficient hydro gel (from Japan) to hold the fluid in instead of letting it back flow or leak from its sides. So this means the pads are great for heavy flow days.

HEALTH PROTECTION – It gives me a peace of mind knowing that the anion strip inside the cotton helps to prevent gynecological diseases. As it is chemical free, it does not raise the optimum pH of the vagina, i.e. at 4.0 and 5.5.

SAFETY PACKING – Aluminum foil is the material used in the packing of Anion sanitary napkins as it is safe and hygienic. I like it that the packaging can be reused as it comes with a resealable flap that’s easy to pull. This makes it safe and protects it from dampness, mildew and fungus.

SAFE GLUE – Industrial glue is used for most of the traditional sanitary napkin’s base. Although its glutinosity is reliable, it leaves behind residual benzene inside the underwear which sometimes cannot be removed. This residue can cause diseases and endanger the user’s health. But the glue used on Anion sanitary napkin is edible glue and it is non-toxic.

Where To Buy Lavender Sanitary Pads?
These sanitary pads can be ordered online at https://www.pro-care.com.my/

The Lavender sanitary pads collection includes the Day Use, Night Use and Panty Liners.

Recommend Retail Price:

While checking out at the pro-care.com.my website, I stumbled upon a contest where I’ll stand a chance to win a beautiful Swarovski charm worth RM149 when I purchase Lavender sanitary products.  Contest period is from 1st July through 30 September 2019.  It’s pretty simple to take part. Just purchase Lavender sanitary napkin products, fill out a simple form and upload the receipt of your purchase.  For more details on the contest, click here!

Creating Fashion Trends

Fashion trends evolve with the times and often move cyclically. Depending on your age, your parents may comment on new clothing and remember times when this clothing received praise from fashionably aware crowds. When browsing the internet or perusing stores for new clothes, the selections available often determine what you wear. Affordability factors in as well, but if you choose standard outlets, you will most likely be following fashion trends as opposed to creating them. Adolescents and young adults are often very impressionable, and this can be used to develop trends of your own.

Owning Your Style
Confident individuals often look good in pretty much anything they choose to wear. When you have an aura about yourself, even older pieces can be augmented somewhat. Streetwear brands, such as Otherlinks, have clothing lines that engage consumers due to unique approaches to fashion. Many people want to purchase this merchandise because of the celebrity attached and the way peers will view these stylish purchases. Individuals that possess unique styles are not rushing to buy the newest clothing each season.

Clothing companies pay personalities to post pictures of themselves while wearing a particular item. While these posts usually garner much attention, try creating fashion trends and make those in tune with fashion step into your world.

Returning A Parcel To Lazada – Super Troublesome!

Two weeks ago, the mil asked me to order  a board game called Rummikub from Lazada. She had played this board game in Hong Kong and has fallen in love with it. I did a search and found out that Rummikub is available at Lazada but it’s shipped from China. I ordered it anyway as the mil was raving about how fun this board game can get and she looks forward to playing it with her 3 grand daughters.

Fast forward 10 days later. The parcel was delivered to us yesterday. When the mil unboxed it, she found out that the four display panels for the number cubes were mal-manufactured. The two stands for the panel cannot be secured tightly onto the holes and the ledge supposedly for the number cubes is so narrow that I can even blow the cubes off the ledge.  The printing of the word ‘Rummikub’ is upside down on the four panels.  The mil was so disappointed with the purchase.

So what’s next then?

I spent the entire afternoon yesterday chatting online with Lazada customer service to find out about the procedures for returning the product.  Each time I needed to ask a question, I had to wait on queue for at least 15-20 minutes, by which time, I would have gotten busy with work (and forgotten that I was on queue as there’s no notification to prompt me, other than stare at the computer) or not in front of my desktop computer anymore. Thus, I wasted my entire afternoon, just to find out how to send the parcel back to Lazada to get a refund.  I am not a noob shopper at Lazada; I’ve been shopping at this online  platform for several years now but it’s my first time returning an item to them.

In summary, all I can say is that if you are a first timer trying to send a defective item back to Lazada, it would take you hours to find out. Once you know the steps to follow, it takes some time to get about with it. If you are too busy or have no patience with the procedures, my advice is to discard the item and don’t feel sorry for yourself for being unlucky to have received a defective item.

First, you will need to print a Return Label at the Lazada website. This took me some time to figure out where the link was to have the label printed.  Printing the item was a tad tricky too. I tried printing several times in different methods before I figured that I had to download the form, save it on my desktop and print it out.  Paper, ink and more time wasted = money wasted.

Second, you will need to box up / wrap up your item and insert the Return Label on the parcel.

Third, from the Lazada website, you will have to choose how to send the item back to them with postage charged back to Lazada.  Choosing a ‘Near You’ location (aka Return Hub) was the most convenient for me but as I had no experience on how to get about doing it, I had to call the appointed Lazada courier agent at my neighborhood to ask for instructions.

Fourth, download a NearU app onto your mobile phone. Why the heck the need to download this useless app on my phone?!

Fifth, key in a bar code number that’s printed on the Return Label into the NearU app on your phone. I omitted this step as the Lazada customer service staff wasn’t sure what to do and the agent / Lazada courier agent at my neighborhood (which is a pharmacy) didn’t inform me as well.  This caused me two wasted trips to the pharmacy this morning.  More money and time wasted! The first time when I went, the pharmacy wasn’t opened yet.  The second time when I went, I was told that I had to print out another form, which contains a QR code, and attach it to the parcel!  WTF!!

GAWD! Lazada must have made the return procedures super troublesome to deter shoppers from returning defective items to them!  That’s not very smart. Coz some impatient shoppers will only switch online shopping platforms!

As of typing this post, I still haven’t gotten around with printing the QR code,  that’s sent from my phone to my email.

See the ‘mahfan-ness’??  I hate anything that’s time consuming and troublesome.

Tomorrow, I will have to make a third trip to the pharmacy / Lazada courier agent to drop off the parcel, after which, another email will be sent to me for parcel tracking purpose.

Hopefully the defective item reaches Lazada by next week. I can’t wait to get my refund! Mind you, refund is via crediting of the amount into my Lazada Wallet, which means that I will have to use the money to buy other stuff from Lazada.

Is this going to deter me from shopping online at Lazada? Probably not. I just have to be extra careful and make sure I choose a product from a seller with lots of positive reviews and 5 star ratings.

If you do not have a printer at home, then forget about returning your item to Lazada. It would be too tedious and costly to get the two forms printed just to send an item back to Lazada, unless you can get someone to print for you.


Cheap and thin plastic stands that won’t lodge tightly onto the panel. When the stands are attached to the panel, the panel is almost 90 degrees upright, thus  the cubes will fall off with just a cough or sneeze that you make!


There’s no way the number cubes can stand on this panel! Note that the words are printed upside down as the panel has to propped up the other way.


This is how the actual panel should look like.

Air Track Gymnastics Mats

Sherilyn missed an opportunity to compete in the Get The Beat semi-finals dance competition in Singapore towards the end of last year as she injured her back during one of the routine dance practices a week before the first dance competition. After an X-ray, several physio sessions and lots of massages with essential oils and cold compress, the lump filled with fluid behind the back finally subsided.

Looking at how she flipped and rolled her back on the hard floor each time she danced sent my  heart skipping one or two beats. It would be good if her dance studio placed a few air track gymnastics mats on the floor during dance lessons for the safety of the students.

Air track mats are inflatable air tumbling mats that can be inflated by pumping air using an air pump.  They are used on the gym floor, martial arts training hall, fitness clubs, dance studios, gymnasium, yoga studio or as home entertainment.

If only the living room of our condo is spacious enough, I can consider getting an air track mat for our girls to do floor exercises, roll, tumble, flip and practise dancing and martial arts. It’s great to double up the air track mat as a mattress too whenever we have guests in the house!

These air track mats can be purchased online and offline. But we careful to only get good quality air track mats for safety purposes.  One air track company that produces good quality air track products is WholesaleAirTrack,  the world’s largest suppliers of inflatable air track and has several years of experience in producing air track.

The air track products produced by WholesaleAirTrack are made from top quality and sturdy materials, used for inflatable boat production. The air track mats are blown up to 16 hours at their factory for pressure test before shipment with finished pictures or video of the Air Track for every customer. Awesome QC they have! And they ship internationally too. Check out WholesaleAirTrack to find out more on their products.

Flower Girl Dresses

At a church wedding  of a very close pal last Saturday, I watched with envy cute little girls dressed up in kids high low dresses and flower girl dresses as they paraded into the church sanctuary holding flowers. It reminded me of the time  when Sherilyn was a flower girl at her Sunday School teachers’ church wedding. They are a couple who taught at the Sunday school who eventually got married. Sherilyn had just turned two when she was the flower girl, dressed up in a resplendent white sleeveless flower girl dress with a white halo headgear. She was such a cutie who attracted so much attention on that day. At 14 years old now, she no longer likes to be in gowns and elaborate dresses and would only wear dresses at special occasions like weddings.

When Cass was younger, she would wear anything that I got her. I would doll her up in cute little tutu dresses, ballerina tutu dresses and  flower girl dresses online that I bought.  She would obediently be the model for my online store and always gave me her most cheerful dimpled smile.  I was so proud of her. But when she turned 10 years old, everything changed.  She no longer wanted to be in dresses, much less flower girl dresses and gowns. At our close pal’s wedding last Saturday, she was all sulky and glum when I forced her to wear a dress.

Last year, Cass wore a white flowy dress that looks like some first communion occasion dresses to her baptism.  That was the last time she wore that beautiful white dress (which she wore less than 5 times) and I guess I now have to donate that white dress which I got from the UK to someone who would love to be in it.

If only my girls would still want to slip into these pretty flower girl dresses like they once loved to…
Princess Sleeveless Kids Prom Dress for Girls With Lace CH0131
Princess Bateau Sleeveless Ivory Organza Mini Children's Prom Dress(AHC049)
Multipatterned Lace Tulle Straps Ball Gown Floor-length Kids Prom Dresses(FGD344)

I do miss the time very much when my three girls were younger and twinkly-eyed. They were not persnickety over their choice of clothing or anything else. They were so much easier to manage and I had so much lesser stress over them then vs. now.  But I’m sure that one day, they’ll be looking at these dresses again for their prom night, as bridesmaid and finally as the bride! ☺️
