My daughter will be celebrating her birthday next month. I can’t believe that she’s going to be 6 soon. Time sure flies. I am planning a simple birthday celebration for her at the park with her friends. I have been busy planning for her birthday like sending out the invitations, deciding on the type of food and making party packs. When it comes to gift for her birthday, I found a few really awesome things at Personal Creations. It is really hard to pick out a gift since everything is so lovely there. Perhaps I could get her aunts and grandparents to buy her gifts at Personal Creations too. I have narrowed down to a few things.
Ballerina Musical Globe
Flower Name Stepstool

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?

While my spouse is busy looking for the cheapest davidoff cigars, I have been scanning my favourite online stores to shop for a pair of black casual heels. I need one which would go well with shorts, denims or 3/4 pants. I just threw away my 3-year old wedge platform from Nine West because the leather has cracked and started to peel. I intend to get another wedge shoe because they are so comfortable and versatile. I was at Nine West just now and saw a few wedges that I really like.
Lynne Slingback Wedge
Cicely Leather Wedge
Zenovia Cork Leather Sandal
Now, which one should I get? Decisions, decisions.
