Game of Thrones Birthday Party

Every year I will think of a theme for Joe's birthday and the latest theme (which is last year, yes.. I forgot to post haha) was Game of Throne theme! 

It was the best!!!
Look at a whole table of Game of Throne food!
















It was a surprise birthday party for him but he sort of can guess days before because I was busy getting all the stuff ready! So since he knows a bit now.. I asked him which character he wanna be. He said he wants to be Robert Baratheon!
 
 

Guess what! I went to the Salvos, got a leather jacket that looks okay on him and did some alteration and look!!!  My paper cutting skills is not bad isn't it? hahaha Low cost costume, I love it!



I got all props secondhand and some handmade.


The Throne, the Poster and the candle stand is a must for the guests. hehe




What's exciting is I found the GOT House's logo online and I just download them, print them to the correct size, buy the alcohol and stick them! Took me days to do this but I love it!!!
Yep alcohol is a must for GOT and for Joe's party. Make sense yea.

Next is the most important part of the party... FOOD!!!
To be honest, because of this party, I watched all 4 season all in 2 weeks. It's madness. I was singing GOT theme song a few times a day and got so into it!! 

Haha back to the food topic. Internet is the best. I search and search and finally come up with my own GOT menu. I copied the name of the dish cuz I find it funny!

Happy birthday!!!

Dreams that warned me

I had a weird dream today.

I was dreaming about going to a competition ..probably swimming? I can't remember.. 
I was driving and I was on a curve bridge road, bottom is the river. for some reason It was either I drove  a bit too fast or the road is too slippery,my car skidded, crash the fencing, me and the car just went down the river! It was pretty scary. Before my car sink, I managed to get out of the car and I was holding my phone. Try my best to swim to the shore and try to call Joe but it just won't work. in my dream the phone just couldn't  call out. 

I looked at my car, lucky enough it didn't sink but very close to the shore, so I quickly pull my car up.

next thing I know is I dream about totally different story.

I was with my trainer and another girl. my trainer (apparently is my swimming teacher) congrats me because I won a second place medal! but actually I didn't win it at all! I told my trainer that it's impossible it's mine because I was in a accident during that time and didn't make it. but we looked at the medal and thought so who's medal isit?

ding ding ding ding ding..

I woke up by my alarm.

Told joe about the story and he thinks that I just stressed over work or money.

Didn't think much about it and brought him to work. 

On my way back home at riverside drive..

I saw a construction hat on the road and thought .. Yea.. Shud be alright to just drive over it.

Guess what.. It got stuck under my car and making such a loud noise when I drive! No choice but to stop and try to get it out.

Used a stick and umbrella. Can't.

Called  Joe and roadside assistant. He is a bit too far and apparently I don't have it roadside assistant ! wanna cryyyyyyyyy

Then a guy from the other side of the road drove passed and asked me to drive forward and turn into the side road for safety.

Dragged the stupid construction hat underneath my car making so much noise and managed to turn in.

Got down the car and try to poke the hat out again. Honestly at that time.. I have used about 10mins to try poke it out as I couldn't reach it. Can't lie down cuz I'm wearing a dress.. Fml.. that 10 mins feels like an hour because I am at the main road freaking out.

So lucky ... A man drove passed me and asked if I'm okay. I told him what happened and he helped me to get the hat out. 

thank god have him during that time.. Got himself abit wet because had rained. 

the hat is out finally. Thank you so much for your help this morning! 


this is the hat that got stuck underneath my car.

Ironically it is from QTM Quality Traffic Management.
Well...... !!

So .... Does it relates to my dream? river and accident and no calling for help.

What a morning!

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge


Yes, my fiance and I did the Ice bucket challenge!

The first ever Ice bucket challenge that I've seen is Bill Gates. I thought, hmm? What is ALS?
I googled it and read it.

It is often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease," is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body.

Famous victim is Stephen Hawking.














Then day by day, I've watched more and more people doing it and now, basically almost everyone knows about this disease!

Of course, you will see so many challenges that did it for the sake of doing it, some did it for fun but majority, I believe, did it so that this awareness can be continued for quite a while so that every part of the world knows about it.

Did you see the most recent video that the ALS victim himself did the challenge?
Here is the link : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d77TzcndRzU

He is brave, he is strong and I hope his move will change what people think about this Ice Bucket Challenge is all about.

I have heard negative thoughts about this challenge but I believe this challenge created for a reason!
If you support this awareness, but didn't want to do the ice bucket challenge, I think it is time to be creative! :)

Now, think of why, a bucket of water and ice? It is icy cold, it is easy to prepare and this makes your muscle feels "shrink"! Is this how you call it?

Although we won't feel exactly on how they feel, but I think it should be at least 5% of how they feel, which is not much really.

If you think Ice Bucket is not what you wanted to do, be creative! If you are at countries that have 4 seasons, why not try going for a swim at 6am in winter season to replace the ice bucket challenge?

Honestly I have tried that once, and I am struggling in the water. It was my first time and I can honestly say it will be my last time trying that I guess.. I just don't dare to swim in the icy cold pool.

What I wanted to say is.. please pass on this awareness, I know this challenge will died down one day, but at the moment, try your best, pass on, tag people and donate to ALS.
http://www.alsa.org/donate/

Thank you to the person who successfully make this ALS awareness known nearly the whole world ( I hope)

Here is our part and we are so happy that 4 people that we have nominated have done it and pass on the message. Thank you!
Have you done it? :)

PS: This post is for myself and I am not disagreeing anyone of you who are against the challenge. Just want to thank people who support this awareness.
