[Travel] Kyoto Couple Kimono Experience

3 May

One of the best things we experienced in Kyoto:

Couple Kimono Rental

It was just fun, especially when we got to play dressed up together!

Upon arrival, we were greeted by the friendly stylist and her assistant who speak a little bit of English. They so patiently showed me the delicate designs that they carry and opened the cover one by one for me to choose the one that I like. Contrary to my usual self (who likes loud and fanciful designs), this time I opted for a plain design with small prints of colourful flowers on it. It makes me look more like a “wife” figure I thought.

Then I got to choose the belt, cord and an inner scarf before the dressing up process began. It does involve professional skill to put on as it has so many layers and knots. I was so happy when I am all dressed up, and just when I was admiring myself in the Kimono in front of the mirror, I remembered the first question that popped up on my mind was: So… How do I go toilet in this?

It came with matching tote bags (for both of us) and a complete hair styling session with accessories. Japanese are so into details and they always make sure customers are genuinely happy with them.

Kelvin chose a dark purple kimono to match my outfit. And I recalled he was joking with me, doubting whether he can last whole day and function properly in that attire. In fact he did! We walked almost 10000 steps in our kimonos and geta (slippers)!!

We explored the Arashiyama area, walked around Togetsukyo Bridge and visited the infamous bamboo groves.

The Best Thing?

We’ve got a photographer with us!!

This was also the first time we worked with a Japanese photographer. He followed us so patiently and took pictures of us without giving cues. So we felt really carefree and natural. The pictures I showed here are just few from the 500 pictures he took for us (YES, IT’S THAT MANY!)

Special thanks to Ume Sakura kimono rental for dressing us up in these beautiful couple kimono set! Unlike most kimono rentals who offer fancy and colourful designs to tourists, Ume Sakura provides traditional real Kyoto style kimono rental service. So if you are interested to dress up in authentic Kyoto style kimono next time when you are in town, you know where to go 🙂

I hope you enjoy this post entry as much as I enjoy writing it. It was an amazing experience that I would definitely recommend for you and your partner next time when you are in Kyoto.

XOXO Eryn

EB4怀孕是女人人生中一个特殊的阶段,可以说五味杂陈:对分娩的恐惧,对宝宝的各种担心,有对孩子未来的憧憬,也有对身体变化的无奈和担忧… 当面对很多从未有过的感受时,会有各种失落,茫然和不知所措的情绪,这个时候我总是告诉自己,要积极,要正面… 用正能量击败所有的纠结、矛盾等负面情绪。走到这里,人生无所畏惧…

It’s all about excitement, joy, happiness, a bit of fear and unknowns! Hopefully, this will not be the last time you see us posing happily for a picture 🙂

Thank you for reading and your support throughout the journey, I couldn’t express how thankful I am to have all of you…

Those Nights Full of Sweet Macarons

15 May

It’s been 36 weeks now.

My belly is growing bigger and heavier. I started to have difficulty in walking and climbing up stairs. It’s especially hard to get quality sleeping time at night with all the movements in the belly, leg cramps and urge to pee…

After I gave birth, Kelvin wants to take me to Paris for a little getaway, just the two of us, he said. I smile and told him that I don’t even know what will happen tomorrow…

And in those sleepless night, I’ll imagine walking on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées, hand in hand with Kelvin, wearing my favourite stilettos with crystals. We will visit Mona Lisa at the Musée du Louvre, sipping Moët & Chandon beside Eiffel tower, watching sunset and amazed by the glows of city of romance.

I’ll let my hair down and throw on my sequin dress, scooping chocolate pistachio ice cream while laughing to Kelvin’s funny jokes. And yes, we will go to Ladurée, tasting the legendary macarons in various dreamy colours and lost in the wonderful sweet smell of Paris…

Those are the nights I lie on my bed, thinking about things that I love dreaming about. Sometimes I lost track of time, life becomes fragments of dreams. The cute smiles you give me every time I open my eyes, like a child dreaming and chasing after those dreams.P6

 I would turn my body a little and touch my belly, knowing that whenever I dream, the little one dreams together. Somehow I do believe, she would be a beautiful dreamer, too…

Thank you so much for reading and have a charming day!

Celebrate Motherhood with MICCIMO

7 May

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born.  She never existed before.  The woman existed, but the mother, never.  A mother is something absolutely new.  ~Rajneesh

This depicts how I feel now. After expecting a baby, I have come to know a new “me”. A “me” that has never existed before. I learn to deal with fear, embrace humility, endure hardship, sacrifice things that I love and pray at all time (not for myself but) for the well-being of my child. And I feel so blessed that this journey has been an enjoyable and truly blessed one.

Tonight when Kelvin took me out for a date night at The Fullerton Bay Hotel in Singapore, I decided to throw on my long sleeve jersey dress from MICCIMO.g6

To be honest with you, I’m very shy when it comes to tight fitting dresses during my pregnancy. I think the main reason is that most dresses I’ve seen look really tight, as if it’s trying to squeeze your baby so hard, and seem very uncomfortable. Maybe it’s a matter of finding the right design and good fabric, but for now, I have this dress made with 96% viscose to ease me into the world “belly-showing” designs. I greatly appreciate the ruched design at the sides and the silky appearance and feel. It’s demure~

To glam up the look, I paired it up with sparkling accessories and a black beret with netting for decorative purpose 🙂

I believe that (just like me) every new mother has this little “insecurity” about their changing appearance and blossoming baby bump. However, with minimal effort, pregnancy can certainly be comfortable and blissfully beautiful at the same time. And this is exactly what MICCIMO could provide!
