Dresses For The Bride And Her Mother.

I just found out that we have been invited to a church wedding to be held next month. We are very happy for the young couple and also happy for both their parents. For women, usually the first thing that came to our minds is, "Oh, what am I going to wear for the church wedding and for the wedding dinner?" Either, we will go through our wardrobes and find the right dresses to wear or we will have to shop for new dresses. Everyone wants to dress well for grand occasions including weddings too.
For the bride, choosing the right wedding dress is also of utmost important. We have many websites offering extensive collection of both short and long wedding dresses for the brides. Some websites even have a wide selection of beach wedding dresses for those who prefer beach or garden weddings.
The focus has always been on the bride and great attention is placed on her dresses but what about the mother of the bride? The mother of the bride has an important role to play and she deserved to be well dressed for the occasion too. While shopping for her own wedding dress, the bride could at the same time help choose for mother dresses that are elegant and graceful for her mother. It is every mother's desire to look great on her daughter's wedding day.

Simple Lunches At Restoran A1 Phang Leng, Menglembu.

Last week, my foodie friend came to pick me up from my house after she has finished whatever she needed to do at the bank. It was already past 12 pm and she had been without breakfast. As we were travelling towards Menglembu, I mentioned to her that the shop with the sweet drink or tong sui has shifted to its new location. And that is how we ended being here at A1 Phang Leng for our lunch.
My friend ordered a bowl of peanut and dried mussel porridge, a bowl of red bean sweet drink (tong sui), 3 pieces of fried items to share and I ordered a bowl of oatmeal sweet porridge without coconut milk (mutt chok tong sui).  
 My friend also ordered a small plate of fried vegetarian noodle.
4 pieces of deep fried items to share.
This lunch with my foodie friend costs less than MYR 10 (less than 2.48 USD)

 These were what we ordered for our lunch.
 Hubby's small plate fried vegetarian noodle.
5 pieces of deep fried items to share. I love these glutinous balls coated with sesame seeds.
 A bowl of oatmeal sweet porridge to share.
This lunch with hubby also costs less than MYR 10 (less than 2.48 USD).

If you love someone, you will be loyal to him no matter what the cost.

You will always believe in him, always expect the best of him,

and always stand your ground in defending him.

An Invitation To A Special Celebration.

Few mornings ago I saw a missed call on my smart phone when I came in after I have finished watering the plants in my garden. I usually carry my smart phone with me when I am in my garden just in case I come across something interesting that I would want to capture with my camera. But that particular morning, I didn't have the phone with me. I left it charging in my room. The missed call number was not listed in my list of contacts, so I didn't return the call. Just before I could put down the phone on the table again, the phone started to ring and its the same number again.

I answered the call and immediately I recognized the voice of a good friend of mine. She explained that she is using her daughter's number because she dropped her smart phone and she has yet to get a new phone. It seemed they are now preparing her pair of granddaughters (who are twins) for their first Holy Communion, She wanted to share the good news with me and also to book me for the celebration day.
A child's first Holy Communion is something new to me and here are what I have learned from my friend. Her granddaughters will be celebrating their 7th birthday soon and for the first time they will participating in the sharing of the bread and wine together with their family. It will be a special day for the girls and family. On that special day, the girls will wear white communion dresses together with veils. These are symbols of their purity and religious commitment.
I can imagine the little girls' excitement as they are being prepared for that special day. They will be like little brides all dressed up in their "first communion dresses  and going through the orders of the special event.
I assured my friend that I will attend and witness her granddaughters' special occasion. I am looking forward to see the cute little "brides" dressed in their communion dresses. The above images are from http://mariacommunion.com/.
