Floral Garage - Saying it with flowers

Image
Those who know me will agree that I enjoy gifting flowers to friends around me. In fact, I enjoy giving them much more than receiving them (although I will definitely not say no if you want to shower me with a lovely bouquet!). Some will say gifting flowers are a waste of money because flowers will eventually perish. But, I think during the moments they are in full bloom, they not only brighten up a room, but also have a lasting positive impact on one's mood. Nothing and no other gifts will have quite that same effect. Well, at least to me lah! So, in my usual fashion, I started looking for online shops to order flowers for J's teachers during his kindy graduation concert. I don't usually have a favourite florist and do find it a pleasure to search for new ones just to see what kinds of creations they can come up with.

3 reasons why making terrariums can teach your kid a thing or two

But...it is through this activity, I realised why terrariums cost so much, and rightly so and that's because making them is an art which requires a good deal of patience and precision! This boy, in his excitement to start poured the coloured pebbles in before the soil and mixed them all up. So we ended up with no pebbles after that! LOL! J and I had good fun working on the pack and here's 3 reasons why we will not hesitate to do this again although it's a huge big mess! 1) Makin

About the 4th birthday party

Image
Birthday parties for the past 3 years have always been quite a taboo in our little family. Other than J's full month party which he probably remembered nothing about, every other party we tried to organise never quite materialized. We finally managed to pull off a party this year! I hope he does not ask for one every year though .  His first birthday was cancelled 2 days before the party day because he got his first HFMD. For his second birthday, we wanted a small do with some friends. That got cancelled too because he had a drippy nose. So for his third, we decided to do without a party.

Christmas gift Ideas for the girlfriends.

I made a list last year on 5 gift ideas for your girl friends . Well, this year, my list is longer and better! I love the season of giving, and always take pride in picking out gifts for my close girl-friends. I take the time to curate what 's out there and match them to what the girlies will like ( of what i think they will like). Sometimes, the simplest of gifts are the ones that they appreciate the most. Here's what I have curated so far...
