Growing up in the Philippines, my grandmother used to make dresses for us. I mean, to each and everyone in the family. My two grandmothers are both dressmakers, so we constantly have new skirts and blouses every now and then. I miss it a lot! It's just so different here in the US. I miss the measuring and styling and everything.

Then recently, hubby want a custom suit for him and our son. Something like "father and son" suit. So I'm really hoping to find a local tailoring shop here in our area, but the prices are overwhelming, lol! Well guess what? I'm just so happy I found My Suit, an online made to measure company with over 40 years of experience in custom made mens’ suit. For as low as $495, customers can have the pleasure and satisfaction of wearing a suit just for them and tailored to their exact measurements!

Purchasing a Made to measure suit from them is easy as 123. Just visit the site and click on the "my suit experience." A virtual kinda process will then be ready for you. From measuring, styling, and you can even choose your most desired fabric. When your done with choice, you can then make an appointment to be measured, and have your beautiful suit in no more than 2 weeks. Beautiful right! Yes it is!

Now I'm so excited to this one already, I'm so excited for father and son suit. How about you? Visit the links now and try it for yourself!

Doing some paper works and stuff like, then we went to a business trip at the same time vacation as well. So never had time to really focus to do blogging. Right now i am still car lag because we drove 1700 miles back and fort imagined that far huh! been patching up my chores that i left before we went out of state.

Don't have enough sleep last night i was monitoring and keeping eye of my baby, he is running a fever because of his molar cutting in right now which is normal for a toddler. but this was my first time encounter him like this with high fever and very fuzzy we don't know anymore what makes him calm good thing he is so good boy just hugging him and telling him mommy is here he just went to sleep! however me no matter how tired i am naturally can't sleep even my eyes are close but my mind we're wide awake. We almost went to the hospital glad the fever subside after i did a sponge bath him with warm water and vinegar ( i remember my mom used to do that for us when we we're a kids) so it was very useful. As of now feeling so tired of lacking of sleep!! (sigh) i just make sure i eat enough so have energy to keep day going...

"I love the blogs of these people and I'm glad to pass this award onto them! All they need to do is to leave the following message on their post when they pass the award on to their chosen eight bloggers.

They all are charmed with the blogs, where in the majority of its aims are to show the marvels and to do friendship; there are persons who are not interested when we give them a prize and then they help to cut these bows; do we want that they are cut or that they propagate? Then let's try to give more attention to them! So with this prize we must deliver it to 8 bloggers that in turn must make the same thing and put this text."
