Kate's Über Chic Bridal Shower

This year, 3 of our friends here in Canada are on their way to become somebody's better half. 

...and with these are numerous bridal showers to celebrate that upcoming event in their lives.

First off, is a Breakfast buffet with a Tiffany Inspired Theme for the ultra chic soon to be bride, Kate.

Prepared lovingly by her sister, Shar. The decor was well thought off and coordinated right to the last detail. Kate's mom did a wonderful job keeping all the friends full with her cooking. If this is the way she prepared breakfast, it is not hard to believe why her kids stayed so long in her nest. I'd love to wake up everyday with these kind of home cook meals...

100 Days Smarter...

Each year, the school does a 100 days project to mark the 100th day in school.

Each kid is required to make something of their collection. A hundred of it to be exact.

This year, we made beads and string them to make a necklace.

A Trip to Chinatown and Sun Yat Sen

It was exciting for me to be able to ride the bus with the kids for their field trip in Chinatown. Pretty apt as it was Chinese New Year and this garden is a perfect place to know more about the Eastern culture.

Unlike before, where we just go and look around on our own. The kids are going on a tour to get to know about some interesting facts about the garden and it's features. 

* Sun Yat Sen in stone

There is two Foo Dog guarding the entrance and it always comes in pair. I've always thought that these were lions or dragons but now I know better hehe! 

* Tour guide Wendy explaining that there is a male and female

* Female Foo Dog…

The female apparently differs from the male in one aspect. The female one is doing something quite maternal and you can see that one paw is holding a baby while the male foo dog's paw is holding a globe.

The tour started outside the garden and into the streets of Chinatown...

* Busy streets of Chinatown

* A pair of dragons perched on the street signs

Next on the tour was going to the store where different medicinal plants and herbs were sold as an alternative medicine for different ailments. A strong smell greets you as soon as you open the door. It brings back memories when I used to go to these stores with my dad while I was a kid.

* A tray of sweets in a tray near the entrance

We also passed by lanterns adorning the stores. Red and golds… these are colours you can see everywhere during Chinese New Year.

* Lanterns

* A large abacus. Calculator of the past

* Gateway to another world

A break between tour was the lunch time which took place at Tinseltown Food area of the mall...

* Photo opportunity for the whole 1st graders…

Inside the garden, it was like being transformed to Old China. The garden was in the middle of the house and other areas were placed around the garden.

A bit of story on how the zodiac animal got it's placement...

* Tour guide and Mrs Taylor act out the story with puppets
