    February 15, 2017 by barbara

    So it was the 59th Annual Grammy Award ceremony two nights ago.  I have always loved watching the Grammys because I get to watch my favourite artists performing.  I also like to look at the Grammys Red Carpet.  Some of the fashions are really gaudy and weird and it gets weirder every year.  However, there are also some notable styles that are winning the red carpet.  I have here some of my favourites.  Oh not forgetting, one of the performances that I really enjoyed watching with the http://www.guitarcenter.com/Universal-Audio/ speakers blasting out loud is the tribute to Bee Gees by Demi Lovato, Tori Kelly, Little Big Town and Andra Day.

    December 30, 2016 by barbara

    Do you remember the times when your parties or functions were dampened or even have to end early because of rain? Or the great disappointment of poor turnout because of the rain and all the food has to go to waste? Well, you no longer have to go through those times again. With an inflatable party tent, it doesn’t matter whether it is rain or shine, your party can go on and everyone can have a great time up till the end of the party.

    What is an inflatable party tent? Inflatable party tent is made from thick and durable PVC and is filled with air or gas with a blower. When not in use, it can be deflated and easily stored away without taking much space. It provides good shelter and is portable and movable. It is suitable for swimming pool, waterpark, waterslide, open field or ground. Inflatable tent is very popular for parties, get-togethers, conferences, meetings and outdoor matches or activities.

    Speaking about outdoor matches or activities, there is one fun and crazy game called the Bubble Soccer or the Bubble Football. It is a game of soccer or football using Human Inflatable Bumper Bubble Balls. The players are encased in the inflatable bubbles and they are supposed to try to take possession of the soccer ball. As the players go after the soccer ball, they get bounced off their feet when they bumped into one another. It is hilarious to watch the players trying to get back on their feet. It is a safe game and the players get plenty of exercise.

    For other safe and fun games with inflatable bubble balls or bumper balls, the site to check out is www.inflatable-zone.com. Besides the inflatable balls, this site has many other inflatable products which are safe for children and adults.

  6. How To Find An Evening Dress?

    October 22, 2015 by barbara

    Parties are a plenty this coming holiday season.  Dressing up for the holidays is part and parcel of the joy of this season.  I know that to many people, figuring out what to wear on an average day is hard enough.  So when you received an invitation to the parties this year end, you go to figure out what exactly does it it say on the invite. Black-tie? Casual chic? Semi-Formal? Is it going to be held at a fancy restaurant or the hotel ballroom?  Most often guests are left wondering what styles fit well and fit within a certain dress code.  Formal dresses or evening wear must be chosen with care and with consideration given to the event’s dress code.

    When you receive an invitation to a Black Tie Affair, then you know it is time to pull out all the stops for your outfit on that evening.  Evening dresses are meant to be worn for formal events and it is best to go with a floor-length dress in gorgeous satin, taffeta or beaded.  Accessorize with a dramatic necklace or dangling earrings but remember, don’t wear both.  If you are not sure, it is best to wear diamond drop earrings or a pearl necklace.  Do not forget to get yourself a nice clutch too.  Cheap evening dresses from ihomecoming allows you to make an entrance that will definitely catch the eye of everyone in the room.

    If the invite states cocktail, this means an elegant party dress with killer heels.  You may want to turn to lace or chiffon fabric with two inches above the knee hemline.  As for Festive dress code, this means bold colours, jewelry and sparkly details. You can spot this dress code on invitations for holiday parties and hence, it is safe to go deck out in a vibrant dress, statement necklaces, red heels or glittery clutch.

    The size and fit are important and must be chosen carefully.  An ill-fitting dress may result in discomfort and dishevelled appearance.   Colour is also important as inappropriate choice may clash with the person’s complexion. Many have a tight budget but not everyone is able to choose the best apparel despite spending a substantial amount of time and money on it.  Therefore it is advisable to spend some time to learn more about evening party dresses.

    So if you are going to attend a party of family gathering this coming December, you may want to consider Ihomecoming affordable evening dresses for the special occasion.  You can get all the perks of shopping minus the hassle.   Don’t forget to get the right makeup and hairstyle and together with the stunning evening dresses, you would look absolutely ravishing and trendy.


  7. Grammy Awards 2014

    January 29, 2014 by barbara

    Did anyone watch the Grammy Awards a few days ago?  If yes, then which one was your favourite performance?  Did you favourite singer win the Grammy?  I love the performance by Pharrell, Stevie Wonder and Daft Punk in their rendition of Get Lucky.  This retro dance-flavored music is very catchy and I really enjoyed it.  The jamming session with the music legends, the retro recording booth complete with neon lights and possibly behringer amps as well as electronic sounds from the white robots really brought the house down.

    July 10, 2012 by barbara

    While the spouse is busy checking out the Shoei Qwest helmets for his new ride,  I am looking for a new mobile phone.  I am still contemplating if I should get the iPhone or an Android phone.  Anyway, what’s important is that I get to use Instagram and also play music on my mobile phone.  I want to listen to music when I’m running.  You can imagine my delight when I saw this cute Mini Boombox MP3 Speakers at Fred Flare.  It sure brings back memories of the 80’s.   This mini boombox is actually an iPhones and iPods dock.  When attached to your device, it allows you to share your music with everyone.  The Mini Boombox MP3 Speaker’s measurement is 2.5″x1. 25″x0. 5.   How cool eh?  Looks like I may have to get an iPhone if I want this Mini Boombox MP3 Speaker.


  10. Watch Be Home For Dinner TVB Online

    April 26, 2011 by barbara

    Be Home For Dinner looks like a very good show which I would enjoy watching.  This not-so-new TVB sitcom replaced Show Me The Happy.   This 80-episode drama stars some of my favourite actors and actresses such as Ngok Wah, Kristal Tin and Queenie Chu.   This drama is about a traditional Chinese household and the love for fine food.  Have you watched this drama?

    Here are the synopsis.

    In a Chinese household, the dining table is the place where the family’s relationship revolves upon on. The CHUNG family is the traditional model Chinese family. The father CHUNG KWOK CHYU (Ngok Wah) is the supplement chief editor for Ko Jim Daily. He enjoys a famous reputation as a food critic. Loving the taste in the food markets, CHYU ensures he’s home for dinner every night. He believes the best home cooked dishes are made with the world’s highest quality ingredient…..love.

    At the Chung household, CHYU has to face the dough kneading bickering younger brother CHUNG KWOK TUNG (Stephen Au) and his son CHUNG SI HON (Jason Chan), whose values differ from his. His wife BO KWAI SUM (Helena Ma) also fears that she’s not doing enough as the stepmother. And finally there is the half-siblings (same father, different mother) SI HON and SI NA (Katy Kung).. who do not understand fine foods. How can fine foods be drawn into each member of the Chung family and open the window?
