Here in the UK, Mother’s Day has come and gone. I am however, from Malaysia and Mother’s Day is on the 13th of May 2012! Fortunately I didn’t forget and got a Mother’s Day card for my mum. I’d make my own but…I’m going to spare my mum my horrendous card-making ‘creativity’. I’m quite sure she’s chucked my old ones away and kept the beautiful ones I get for her from Paperchase
I do like sending something personalised to her, the last one being a Polaroid picture I took with a placard saying: “I LOVE YOU MUMMY!” This time however, I have been on a DIY frenzy (clothes, nails, jewellery) so I decided to make her a friendship bracelet! (With whatever little ingredients I had)
I don’t know if she’s had a friendship bracelet given to her and even though my relationship with her isn’t as tight as other relationships I still think she’s the best mother I could ever have and I love her loads! Besides, lately she’s been trying to copy my style (hmph!) so I hope this will make her happy!
- Maroon string to represent love and filial piety
- Silver balls to represent abundance spiritually and physically
- Star charm because my mum’s a shining star in my eyes
I gave the bracelet a lobster clasp because if my mum does decide to wear it, I know she’d get frustrated at having to tie up loose ends! I hope she likes it, but even if she doesn’t…it’s the thought that counts, right?
Edit: Mum let me know today she did receive the card and was very delighted as it was a nice surprise! She said the bracelet was “pretty and professional looking” so that’s a good sign. Mum never lies. Hahaha!
Happy Mother’s Day to all celebrating!
Okay so you thought I was going to end it there?? In my previous post on What To Wear A To A Festival, I also mentioned about barrister’s wigs! Why? Because I had to wear them for my advocacy exams (I’m in Bar School). I also mentioned that my dad was getting overly excited at this piece of news that he was persistent in asking me to take a picture donning the barrister outfit.
So I did my best on Thursday, and ‘ninja-ed’ it with the help of a good friend (who appeared before my exam and clicked away). I’ve covered my eyes because I’m shy, but I left my smile on to show that it IS a real picture, y’know – proof that it’s me, Peaches. Hahaha!
Peaches ‘ninja-ing’ it before her Examination-in-Chief advocacy exam!
I’m a petite 5’2″ so that gown was practically falling off me! If you notice carefully, the right shoulder of the gown is slipping off! The wig wasn’t too uncomfortable to wear, but I remembered to fasten a hairclip just in case it falls. It happened to one of my bar mates and her witness standing in the witness box laughed. Whoopsies!
My exam went alright hopefully, and my witness (who is an actor) wasn’t being too difficult. I’ll be donning this outfit again this coming Tuesday for my Cross-Examination exam, wish me luck!!
