Oppsss, too early?

Well, nothing is too early for me since I gotta scout for something more personalized for my loved ones. ^^

Seen some bloggers already posting about these advent calendars and my second sis is dying to get her hands on specific advent calendars.

I am more of a thrifty spender at times so let me share with you my Christmas plan & hauls (to-be) for 2016 and I hope to hear about yours too!! ^^

Christmas this year, I hope, would be more memorable as I will be celebrating it as Mrs. Ng.
^^ So weird and funny. *rofl*
Anyway, I would like to make it like how I had experienced as a kid in Taiwan.

Nobody's too old to be a child again ^^

First off, as a free thinker for me and a Buddhist for him, we are pretty okay with various celebration BUT, everyone's just too busy or lazy to set up something for occasions and just eat out or have steamboat with his family at his place.

As I grow older, celebrations are just less celebrated which makes me feel really grumpy and sad.

As the saying goes something like this, "We are just too busy growing up and we had forgotten that our parents are growing old." I fully agree with the statement. And I personally would like to use occasions (or not) and spend more time with my family when ever I can make time for them.

This round, I hope to have a mini potluck with family and friends for a duration of 1 week...
Potluck easy la, so I don't have to prepare everything myself & I am not a chef. All I can think of now is the yummy looking desserts. Will start thinking of healthier alternatives ^^

Not all day have to be productive tho' as long as I get to spend some quality time with my family and friends.

I don't aim to go out to eat much coz usually restaurants will be much pricier than the usual so it is not that worthy. How about window shop and also take pics with Christmas decos after our dinner at home. Sounds healthy ^^

Not to forget, I must get the fake snow spray at the store this year to decorate abit of my windows and also some mini Christmas tree and ornaments. I LOVE ornaments! But will start light on the deco and more on the food, movies and song for the celebration this year!  ^^ I think my Christmas spirit is a bit high right now. I am sorry for being so "syiok sendiri" right now.  ^^

What movies do you watch?
As kids and now, still, my siblings and I love "The Grinch".

Songs, well, "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" was one of the first song I learnt (I think) for Christmas. Followed by the many others eg "Silent Night", "Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer" , "The Twelve days of Christmas" , "Frosty the Snowman"  and etc.

As a kid, I used to remember seeing the red plant thing, called Poinsettia (just googled), were placed all over our school grounds when Christmas is around the corner.

Poinsettias' association with Christmas derives from a legend in Mexico. In the 16th-century, a poor girl, commonly named Pepita or Maris, wanted to present a gift in conjunction with the Jesus' birthday. Inspired by an angel, she gathers weed and placed it in front of the church altar. Beautiful poisettias blossomed then ^^

We would hang our pledges at the gigantic Christmas tree in the entrance of the school. Buy candy canes and all sorts and just give it to our friends. Mini gathering held at home for the bonding and fun. I remember bringing my savings and spend it at the school store for ornaments, sweet, and a cute bunny pepper container thing for my mom and siblings.

Before I jump in to what I would like to get from Printcious,
lemme talk a little about Printcious:

Basically, Printcious comes from two words, "Printing" and "Precious". Their catch phrase "Print your Precious Gifts," hope that their customers  are happy in receiving and giving "customized gifts".

What I like about Printcious is that they advocate the beautiful culture of gift-giving (thus boost harmonious relationship) and also discover, appreciate & reward artists, designers and photographers with royalty program. That being said, your designs always belong to you (for more information, read HERE)

They also have various items for you to shop and/or create:
  • t-shirt
  • mug
  • cushions
  • phone cases
  • ceramic tiles
  • puzzle
  • mouse pads
  • mini tees
  • etc


If this is too overwhelming for you, fret not, you can also shop and/or create by Recipient of "For...:

  • Him
  • Her
  • Husband
  • Wife
  • Boyfriend
  • Girlfriend


Too little a category now? They have it also sorted by Occasion:

  • Christmas
  • Birthdays
  • Wedding
  • Father's Day
  • Mother's Day
  • New Baby
  • Diwali/Deepavali
  • Halloween
  • Valentine's Day


For me I would like to shop for Him and Her for the last time ^^
Coz to be really honest, we did not buy much couple stuff coz it is just to cheesy and we are too old for that. Kidding. Lol. We just don't.

I would like to get him a "My Wife Has an Awesome Husband" mug and I am honestly spoilt for the color choices (You can click here and see!). A cup like this is chosen coz I know I do not praise him upfront much and he deserves a little more praise from time to time. With this cup, I no longer need to praise him! Lol. Kidding! See how first la ^^ Thanks for all the moments of support, care, tolerance and annoying times. May we grow together, in a good way. ^^
And myself a "Mrs ALWAYS Right" cushion (Here). I think White looks the most classic. Why? Coz I believe that I am always 90% of the time right! ^^ 10% was deducted coz I know I have my tantrums and a hoarder. I may not always use the stuff I buy but I know we will one day use it. So don't complain about my stuff! ^^

Also considering to do some customization for the cushion or cup with the pics below (images taken from tumblr and google):



As for my family and friends, I will most probably go with either a cushion or mug too. It is also a bonus point when you customize it coz you will definitely not get the wrong size (not like shirt) and they will use it or put it at their sofa, car or bed for deco purposes ^^ Whenever they see or use it, they'll (hopefully) think of you! ^^

So what do you do for the Christmas season? ^^ Share your joy with me and I would like to implement it in my Christmas celebration too ^^
