Wedding Bells...

Nope not mine. Though I remembered where we partied like it was 1999..Actually, my husband, Chek puked non-stop the whole night and had to spend our wedding night at the hospital! Well, another story for another day.

This is about my sister, Karen's wedding in January and March 2008. Why 2 months? Her husband-to-be works in Sydney and they planned to have the chinese dinner and ceremony in KL while the church wedding in Sydney after.

My assistance was enlisted to help find a "suitable" wedding dress since I was according to Karen "free nothing to do, sit at home, etc...". Alright, I will be the helpful big sister that I always am and surfed the net (where else?).

Karen wants a tailor-made dress and her specifications were vaguely : modern, unique, pink (her fav colour), long train (church wedding), not too revealing (church wedding) but must show off her figure (?) and her future mother-in-law's latest requirement that Karen must fatten up for the wedding as she is too skinny.

Where o' where in the world am I going to find this unique pink conservative yet figure hugging stretchable (in case she gains 10 kilos) piece???

My prayers were answered when I laid eyes on this lovely dress except that it's not in pink but it would look lovely in pink too, don'tcha think so?

A Day In The Life....

New Beginning

I wonder how long it would take for someone, anyone to read my blog?

Well, things have certainly changed for me. Not only am I a newbie when it comes to blogging but I am also newbie at being a full-time mommy to my precious little angel, Ashley who has just turned 4 months old.

One things' for sure, I've been surfing the net a lot more than I used to. I stumbled upon so many mommy blogs which were helpful indeed for me in raising my daughter. The book reviews, the steps in getting babies to sleep through the night, the best place to get baby stuff...you get the drift. I thought perhaps i could have my blog to chronicle some of the highlights of my life as a mommy and hopefully, help others in a way that these mommy bloggers have helped me.
