I was the ang bao lady at the tea ceremony and I took my role very seriously - hey, I even dressed for the part. Just kidding.
Well, not really. Being in close proximity with the wedding couple and their elders did mean shoving the black beige Marni dress I had in mind way back into the closet - along with my imaginary Herve Leger dresses.
After trying on 4 dresses that made me look uncomfortably bloated, I finally found a dress that was playful and flirty - adjectives I normally wouldn't use on someone who feels like a baby killer whale these days. Can you tell how pleased I am with this dress? All thanks to my younger sister who very generously loaned it to me! Apart from the dress, I also borrowed her signature SAP (Skinny Arm Post). Don't mind if I do.

24 weeks down; 16 weeks to go
The food at Shangri La, as usual, was commendable... well, apart from the mooshy ee fu noodles that was kinda off-putting. The appetizers platters is something I have grown to look forward to, especially when more couples opting to have hot food instead of nasty seafood salads; the shark's fin was pretty tasty; the pik tong chicken with almonds was full of basil-y yumminess; and the mango sago dessert was a neat, sweet way to end our meal.
Hope the goodness spills over to the rest of the upcoming week!
