Trio’s Birthday

Before the month ends, I better blog about the celebration I had with Jonathan’s family. As mentioned, MIL, Xueli and my birthday all fall on the same month. For the 3 years, we have celebrated our birthdays together in April. :)

This year, Jamie treated us to Taste Paradise for dinner.


Food is good. Can never go wrong with Victor and Jamie’s recommendations. :)

Of course, we did not just have those shown above. We were so busy chatting, taking care of the kids and eating that we forgot to take pictures of the food that were served later. :)

The Trio

We never fail to receive flowers from MIL on our birthdays. :)

We started the kids off with fried rice. Somehow flavoured rice are Kaiden’s favourite. He can always finish at least 2 bowls of fried or chicken rice. *Yummy* :)

Tada… Now presenting the couples in order of the Fong ranking. :)

Was in awe when the cake arrived. It was the same birthday cake I had the day before with my family’s celebration. It was such a coincidence. The cake must be really that good that Jamie and Justin would get the same flavour. :)

As usual, the kids can’t wait to blow off the candles. Both of them , especially Kaitlyn, are eyeing at the chocolate deco on the cake.

Thank you for celebrating my birthday with me. Really enjoyed myself on both days of the celebrations and with everyone of my family members. You guys are truly the best. :)

Outfit of the Day

CatwalkClose – Irregular Pleated Chiffon Pixie Top in Wine (Size M). Nice colour but was a little loose on me. The top was a little short (haha or rather the problem lies with me, got a long torso) so by the end of the day, some parts of the top was already tucked out of my pants. Remedy, I just got a new pair of high waisted pants from CatwalkClose and is so loving it. :) 

Flowers compliments from FlowerPotties, an online florist which my MIL set up. Though I am not a flower lover but being able to receive flowers on such special day is still a joy. :)

A New Launch on the way…….

 

EverydayShopper is finally updating with a new collection.

It will be on Sat 23rd April at 10am.

A lot of yummy apparels and I actually kept a few myself.

I am totally in love with the lacey top. Love the lace and crochet. So victorian and demure-looking.

It’s so easy to match. Wore this out to meet my besties for dinner in a pair of shorts. For work, match it with pants or the ruched high waisted skirt which will be featuring in the new collection.

The crop top and high waisted skirt were love at first sight.

Wore this same combination as above on my birthday celebration. :)

The skirt, in suede material, is very so versatile that it matches almost any tops in my wardrobe. :) As for the crop top, it’s in chiffon and love the botton up at the back. :)

What else can we expect from the launch?

Besides those mentioned above. The bow top and colour block top are my next two favourites.

Can’t wait for the collection to be out.

See ya tomorrow at 10am. :)

Finally A Twosome Time…

Thanks to my mum who has helped to take care of the kids, I got to have a twosome time with Jonathan while we set up the box at Toys Outpost.

Initially wanted Sushi Teh but had an overdose of Japanese food lately and didn’t want to stuff myself with more. In the end, we settled for Carl’s Junior. Had my favourite mushroom burger but as usual, I can’t finished it and got Jon to zap it.

Thanks to the ‘hardworking’ stuff at Outpost, my box is not totally cleared. While waiting for them to clear the box, Jonathan and I headed to my favourite store, Daiso. I can pratically stay there the whole day browsing through every item. As usual, bought stuff to beautify the display box. When we went back to Outpost, the staffs were super busy to even clean up my box. :( After talking to the staff, she promised to clean up for me at night after the shop closes. Crossing my fingers that she keeps her word. Will drop by end of the week to take another look and probably to include new accessories. :)

——————————-

Outfit of the Day

LoveBonito Bohemian Blouse in pink. Love the blouse for its material. So soft and comfy. Though 3/4 sleeves, likes the way they puff when they are stuck at my elbows.

TheVelvetDolls‘s Chic Porter Shorts. (My favourite shorts right now). Snug fit and best of all, so versatile. Matches almost everything in my wardrobe. :)

oooo check out my new handmade acrylic moustache necklace. Moustache is specially imported from US. I am so in love with it and so is Kaitlyn. :)

Update on ES Creations: Toys Outpost@Vivio City

Dropped by Vivio City for a purpose. After serious thinking and discussion with Jonathan, I decide to move on. From heartland mall to shopping mall, anticipating for a few months before accessories from ES Creations launched its presence in Toys Outpost Vivio City.

Toys Outpost will be placed with exclusive items. Some or most of the items will not be launch in the livejournal. :)

Now we are talking about high traffic viewers, I got to present my accessories with prominent ES Creations branding. Sets of tags and earrings cards were recreated and designed. :)

What are some of the things that are appearing in the box.

Bracelets… Bracelets… and bracelets. Somehow, I am so hooked onto making bracelets lately. :)

How can we go without rings? Instead of just wire rings, I am including stone rings. Stone rings are not adjustable and mostly at ring size 7 or 8.

Lastly, at the moment, the box will only contain button studs while I sort out ways to display other types of earrings. :)

A last look at my box. Practically the space is filled up. What’s left would be the sides and back of the box. That would be excellent for displaying necklaces. :)

Happy Birthday!!!!

April is one of my favourite months of the year. My cousins’ birthdays, my birthday, Daddy and MIL’s birthdays (so coincidence that both are born on the same day), the day when Jonathan and I declared our 1st day offically together, Xueli’s birthday. Basically, people around me are sending and receiving blessings.

On 2nd April, my family gathered everyone, which was pretty rare chance for we are all busy with our own stuff, for a dinner. Mainly to celebrate my little brother’s birthday which is at end of mar, my daddy and my birthday which is just one day after another. :)

LOL. I always told Jonathan that Daddy must have received me as the best birthday present from mommy cos I appeared just the day before his birthday. Hope I have not given him a lot of problems during my growing up period. :)

Okay, seems like the only place we visit and visit is nowhere but Wah Lok Cantonese Restaurant in Carlton Hotel. Mum likes the roast duck there and since this dinner is treated by her, we sort of like obliged to her request. :)

Seems like it has become a habit for Jonathan to take a family picture whenever we are glamourously dressed. :) So we did while waiting for my parents who is living just upstairs in the same block to get ready.

Finally our sumptous dinner at Wah Lok. These dishes are highly recommended by Jamie. Thanks Sis! My family totally enjoyed them.

While waiting…. for food to serve, for cake to be cut… so that we can eat. :)

Anne and Justin… They got attacked for questions with regards to marriage. LOL. They are only 21 years old.

My young me. Everyone who sees me and Kaitlyn will say she is the younger version of me. :)

The cake that Justine bought and such a coincidence that I ate the same cake the very next day at the celebration with Jonathan’s family. :) This shows how good the cake is.

More proof to show that the cake is good. Just take a look at the way Kaiden eats. Whatever food that goes through him, it looks good.

Birthday boy, girl and man???

Our family photo. Always taken only once a year.

Photos for remembrance before we leave the place. :)

Outfit of the Day

EverydayShopper Slouchy Chiffon Crop Top and Ruched High Waisted Skirt. Both from the upcoming collection.

Taiwan Trip 2010 Day 3

Day 3 was on 25 December 2010 thus was Christmas Day. It’s great to be able to celebrate with family members. Jamie and Victor had also planned Christmas party for the two kids over at Singapore.

The first stop we arrived was the 日月潭 (Sun Moon Lake). Remembered 5 years ago that I went with Jonathan, that was a beautiful lake. I think is due to the quake that has left the place in ruins and on the mist of rebuilding. Why is it known as Sun Moon Lake? Seems like in the northern part of the “Guang Hua Island” (in the middle of the lake) looks like the shape of a sun and the southern part like the shape of a moon. We visited the 文武庙 (WenWu Temple) which worships Confucius, Guan Gong and Yue Fei.

Picture description from L to R: The entrance of the temple, The temple staff explaining the procedures of the praying, The well-wishes that we could place in the temple, the entrance from the other view.

Since we were given quite some time to wander around, how could we miss taking pictures of the scenery. :)

Yea to family picture. Thanks to the tour guide who is “well-versed” in photography, we got this nice picture taken. :)The three little children from the same tour group. Seeing them, I missed my two children at home. :(

Can’t remember when was the last time I took picture with Daddy….

Sista with Daddy. :)

Leaving our footprints, we walked to the bus. Could not resist the Taiwan sausages stalls just beside the bus. :) It was quite a long journey to the next destination. Took a pit stop for coffee and snacks…. and I caught someone in the act.

Hahaha… That’s my tourguide. Check out his equipment for phototaking. He carried these camera stuff throughout the journey.

Finally, we reached the 美浓客家村 (Mei Non Hakka Village). Purpose? To know more about the Hakka culture. Definitely the easiest to know them is through their food. We had a sumptuous Hakka lunch following by strolling around the village.

Everyone was so curious about this old man who could create music with different household items. The most amazing one to me was the toothpaste. “Impressive” is the word Kaitlyn uses. :) Besides that, he appeared in different TV shows and one of the mediacorp show had him featured.

Dropped by the 85 Building for a city sight and mountains. The elevator easily took the group up to the 75th deck in just 43 secs which is 600 feet per minute. *Fast*

Oh before I moved on, we were at Kaoshiung. So we must visit the Love River. Took a 20minutes boat ride without taking any nice pictures. :( Too shaky and cold to hold my cam.

Daddy and mummy before we boarded the boat.

The sun set early due to the season which meant it was time for dinner. Fun days always passed by extremely fast. :) For the past two nights, we were at the night market. The third night, we visited a shopping area cum night market. :) We were only given an hour half to roam the place. Totally not enough for hardcore shoppers like us. After we reached the hotel, we took a cab down to 新崛江夜市 (New Chueh Chiang Night Market) for 2nd round of shopping. :)

Sister and mummy checking out the socks for they were really cheap. Probably due to the weather. :)

Day 4 was really short cos most of the time was spent travelling on the bus. We will be in Hualian on Day 4. Check back soon. :)
