Gifts Ideas for Men...

~ Posted on Saturday, June 11, 2011 at 10:01 AM ~

Hubby's birthday is one and a half month more to come, I have no idea what to get for him this year. When it comes to thinking of the birthday gifts for men, I'm always stuck with clothing, wallets and last year was the Star Craft 2 game.

I came across this website and saw this very cool gift idea! My hubby is crazy about war stuff, the history, the army tanks, the whatever sieges and battles and weaponry and wouldn't it be great if I can get this for my hubby's birthday this year?

A tank ride experience in this World War 2-era Centurion Tank! Whoaa! What a unique and memorable way to give your loved ones for his birthday huh?! I bet he'd go berserk with this gift! If only I have the money and the logistics to make this a reality!!

Or how about a gift in the form of an experience in race car driving? I've seen my hubby playing with car racing games on his computer and he has downloaded an app for a racing game onto my iPad as well. Wouldn't it be fun to see my hubby enjoying this?

Gotta start cracking my head soon to think of what to get him for his birthday this year... or should I just saw Spicy Baby is his birthday gift this year? Hehehe...

Now, what are the gift ideas you can recommend to give the special someone in your life?

Nursing Uniforms...

~ Posted on Saturday, June 11, 2011 at 8:22 AM ~

When I was young, I have never joined any extracurricular societies or clubs in schools that requires its members to wear special uniforms. Why? I came from an average income family, my mum is a SAHM and our family of 4 (dad, mum, my elder brother and myself) depended on dad's income (he was an electrician then) to survive. So, to fork out money to buy the uniforms and shoes and all are considered unneccessary. I have steered clear of clubs and societies like this even when I went to high school.

But that does not mean I have a negative perception towards uniforms or anyone wearing it in their profession. My dad, though he was an electrician, wears a special uniform provided by his company and everytime I see him in that uniform, I can't help but feel a sense of pride that he's special and different from other blue-collared working class people.

I can also recalled my first encounter with people in uniform (other than my dad) was the nurses in my primary school. Back then, those nurses wore white dresses with a small little cap on their head. Those uniforms don't look like cheap nursing uniform to me back then.

Of course nowadays, with all the technology to mass produce and the creativity of people to design more varieties of uniforms (be it material or color), we can easily find uniforms everywhere. Even small businesses are resorting to having their own company uniforms as a sense of company identity and to look more professional.

Look at this Printed top uniform for instance. Would you have thought it is a nursing uniform? It looks pretty cool and pretty to me!

What are your thoughts about uniforms (be it to wear at school or at work)?

Is it necessary and important?
