David's Bridal Wedding Gown Preservation Kit Review

Posted by on Wednesday, April 8, 2015,
Finally after two years from my wedding day, I've decided it's time to finally wash and preserve my wedding gown! I know it's gross that I didn't get it dry-cleaned right after my wedding, but it wasn't that dirty and I didn't want to pay hundreds of dollars of getting it dry-cleaned when I can do that with David's Bridal for cheaper (plus get it preserved at the same time)! 

Usually, I would go online and check out David's Bridal website to see if there are any specials. They are usually $189...

View of downtown Charlotte from our Hyatt Place City Center hotel room

Posted by on Tuesday, January 13, 2015,
Last month, we stayed at the Hyatt Place City Center in downtown Charlotte, NC for a night and it was a really great hotel. I was really impressed with its location and the rooftop restaurant in the building. This seems to be a higher end Hyatt Place, very comparable to a Hyatt Regency. I recommend staying here if you're looking for a place to stay with luxury in downtown Charlotte. It is also less than a mile from the Bank of America Stadium where the Carolina Panthers play football. The vie...

Dua Vietnamese Noodle Soup Restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia - Review

Posted by on Monday, June 9, 2014, In : Atlanta 
We wanted to find a Vietnamese restaurant that was closest to the hotel that we were staying at in downtown and our map linked us to Dua Vietnamese Noodle Soup (53 Broad St NW, Atlanta, GA 30303). It had good reviews and it was only within walking distance from the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown Atlanta. When we got there around 7pm, we've discovered that it had already closed. I guess a lot of the businesses on that street closes at 6pm or something for some reason? 

Anyway, we tried the next day...

Bought a flight and then flights are cheaper the next month?

Posted by on Saturday, May 11, 2013,
Have you ever booked a flight 5 months ahead of time for your trip and then it goes down a month later? Is 5 months too early to buy a flight for a good deal? I am trying to find a flight to Washington DC for October but prices are kind of high right now. I wonder if it'll go down in a couple of weeks or months?

Westin Town Lake in Virginia Beach is a nice stay!

Posted by Till Master on Tuesday, January 29, 2013,
Westin Town Lake in Virginia Beach definitely made it to the top 5 stay list for hotels for me. They are efficient and workers are true professionals! It is also really close to many bars and restaurant and they also have their own bar inside. We were immediately impressed as we stepped in and saw the lobby. See lobby picture below.

Their bed is also comfortable and clean.

Wedding Welcome Bags - I did it myself

Posted by Till Master on Thursday, November 15, 2012,
Hi guys,

We did it! We got married and the grand ceremony and reception were exceptionally successful!

One week before our out of towners were coming in, I created welcome bags printing labels at home and sticking them on brown gift bags with tissue paper.

In the welcome bags, I had a bottle of iced tea, a bottle of Powerade, some snacks like oreos, trail mix, cheezit and granola bars to make their stay more comfortable.

I tried to decorate the bags that are my wedding colors. See pictures bel...
