the three-zero, Kei’s #epicthiry

Kei and I attended Christian and Beya’s wedding last Oct 26, 2014. Despite all the rush, long distance and time constraints we thought they had a nice wedding.

That got me thinking/sort of worrying for when it is our turn. What would our wedding be like?

And the day after we attended the wedding, Kei celebrated a milestone in his life. He turned 30.

I was very much excited! Much more than Kei himself who doesn’t usually celebrate his birthdays. (His family is not big on birthdays.) So, I made some teasers for his #epicthirty based on BBC’s Sherlock Holmes series that he likes. In hopes that he will be anticipating his birthday, not dreading the day he turns three-zero!

And because I wanted the day to be special, I crafted a “Man Bouquet” (male counterpart of a flower bouquet) for him! It turned out pretty awesome! The mix included Chivas Regal, Jack Daniels, Johnnie Walker and ferrero rocher chocolates.

Kei's Man Bouquet - the mix includes chocolates and liquor. I must say I’m awesome at creating this!

I also planned a whole day of activities for him. (I always do.) This time around I came up with a English/Sherlock / Jack Daniel’s label as design inspiration. He had a manly barberdashery experience, a European lunch, afternoon tea and Steak and oysters for dinner. To make it personalized, I custom made a placemat for him with the activities listed on it.

He had a grand time. He is now thirty and happy. Mission accomplished for me. I am happy too.

October is done. With that I leave you with a Happy Halloween y’all!

last night I was frantically scouring the net for free halloween printables / cliparts to use for this year’s favor boxes. I ended up using yellow cellophane paper, tissue paper rolls, slim purple ribbons and the free printables that I modified. Filled with candies my sister got from the grocery. Not bad for a rush job.

lil pumpkin

I really believe we have a pumpkin in our laundry area. So, totally unexpected.

Especially since I live in a building.  To add to that, we don’t water the plant pots, we just leave them out in our laundry area.

My mum has been telling us to pull out the strange vine growing in the bamboo pot since it sort of crawled into the clothesline, but we always have been making excuses so as not to do it.

It turned out to be a good thing after all. Maybe by Halloween we could draw a face on the little fella.
