Godparenting #1 - Chinese New Year shopping

Last year, I made a resolution on my birthday. Instead of wishing something for myself, I wished that hub and I may fulfill a good cause: to be godparents to my nieces RK1 and RK2. 

This decision was made after a deep consideration on my sister EK's physical condition - A widow, sole breadwinner in the family, and recently doctor found out her glucose is way off from normal. In short, she's not too well.

I made the 1st move by inviting RK2 to stay with us during Christmas holidays when my SILs came back for family gathering and stayed with us with the rest of Manson grandkids. RK2 enjoyed herself so much she looks forward to stay overnight with us since then.

It's Chinese New Year, so I offered to buy them new clothing for the 1st time. RK1 and RK2 absolutely enjoyed their shopping experience, and they both get to choose their own clothing.

Hub commented why RK1's dress so short? Well, that's suppose to go with a black legging, dear.

 RK1 got another blouse to match with a black legging
(She desperately wanted to change her 12yo wardrobe so now she finally got some mature-looking clothing that suit her age)

Money just cannot buy the happiness of my little sweethearts.
I am pleased RK1 & RK2 spent wisely and it was within my budget set too.

There shall be more happy moments in my life with these kiddos, I'm sure, and this is just the beginning of it.

I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you a Happy Chinese New Year. May the year of dragon brings you energetic, exciting and great prosperity in life.

Kopivosian! Greetings! 
Harvest festival, the highlight of all Natives' celebration in Sabah is just around the corner. Exciting & heat competitions of Unduk Ngadau to see which young lady will be crown Miss Kaamatan.
I participated in the Kaamatan celebration of my husband's clan - Sinakagon Wong Loong on 10 May 2014 at Kg. Ramayah.
There were 2 main events for that day: Unduk Ngadau and Magagung competition. All 5 family branches produced various version of gong beating and rhythm. Every time when the gong beating start, I felt the echo of sound shook to the core of my soul. This is when I realised I have strong Kadazan gene in me too. I am so so proud to be a Sino-Kadazan!

Remember my niece Lil' Rosanna? Or we would call her Mei-Mei (The little girl) in the family.

Well, it's her birthday coming. She's celebrating her birthday on Monday, 19 July 2010 at school during school recess. She has asked her mom for a "homemade" birthday cake so she could bring to school. And my job? It's to design her birthday invitation cards for her little friends and teachers at school.

Mei-Mei is turning 6 this year. Since she loves Disney characters so much, especially Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, I've decided to design her invitation card with the theme she loves most. :)
I stumbled on a fantastic website that creates Mickey and Minnie invitation cards for sale from Lisa's handmade invitation cards. Since it's impossible for me to order from Lisa, I decided to do my own version of DIY birthday card for Mei-Mei. There was no tutorials in Lisa&#…

To my love, thanks for everything...
