Wedding Cake Box

20/05/2010 at 6:23 pm (Paper Crafts, Wedding) (, , , , , )

It’s the custom in Sri Lanka to greet the guest at the wedding with nicely wrapped wedding cakes. For this there are decorative papers and also cake containers that can be customized with monograms or any other decorative feature.

Here’s a inexpensive solution with origami, where the only cost is for the papers used. Even some boxes sold at shops are made using origami.

Origami Boxes from Origami Resource Centre has a variety of boxes with clear instructions that are printable.

Robin’s Origami Page has good instructions for unusual shapes such as the heart and star shaped boxes.

Simple and easy to follow guide can be found at the Origami Club. The sections Valentine and Useful shows origami instructions for boxes, cases and baskets with diagrams or animations. Check other sections also because they also have instructions for boxes.

Disasters at the Hotel

19/05/2010 at 3:39 pm (Facebook) (, , , )

Played Hotel City recently? Did any of your rooms catch fire?

or suddenly become haunted?

rose to a high temperature?

or freezing?

Maybe a new way to get the players spend more time in Hotel City rather than coming to just start the new shift…. at level 31, taking care of these disasters give me 260 coins at first then 65 coins when repeated.

A Catholic Wedding

15/05/2010 at 9:05 pm (Wedding, Words) (, , , , , )

These modern days where we get to interact with others belonging to many beliefs and cultures, it won’t be a surprise to find most of the invitees to a Catholic wedding are non-Catholic.

That’s why now it’s important more than ever to have a good Wedding Program provided for the guests. It helps to avoid confusion, explains new or old traditions, says thank you in a nice way and most of the time becomes a souvenir.

So many things can be added to a Wedding Program. The Essential Parts of a Wedding Program outlines most of these points. This is not just for a Catholic wedding but a good article to guide you in composing any wedding program.

The wedding program itself can be of various designs. Made of just a single sheet folded twice, then the fan design, the booklet or even with an elaborate paper folding design. Depending on what you include in it and the budget, the appropriate style can be chosen.

For instance, if it just provides the hymns to be sung, a single sheet is more than enough. If you want your guests to take it home as a souvenir, it’s a good idea to make it a pretty booklet with detailed descriptions of your wedding Ceremony, and also small enough to carry in a purse or pocket.

For the souvenir kind programs, it’s nice to add little quotes – religious or otherwise, that express ideas close to the couple getting married. Good examples for a Catholic wedding ceremony can be found in following locations.

Catholic Wedding Program shows a sample program without the hymns.

Plan Your Wedding Ceremony offers a selection of Catholic Readings and Vows that can be added in the program.

Wedding Vows Q & A also has a well categorized collection of vows to suit any sort of ceremony.

And finally some links to the lyrics of popular Wedding Hymns. It’s always best to speak with the officiating priest and the choir about your selection of hymns. In some places it’s not allowed to include popular songs like “You by my side” among the hymns. Then some hymns are not allowed in Catholic churches if they’re not Catholic Hymns. Find several versions of them on You tube and decide on your selections.

Catholic Wedding Hymns doesn’t give lyrics but offers a guide on where hymns are necessary in the ceremony

All about Sarees

07/05/2010 at 6:52 pm (Fashion) (, )

Have you ever wished you can do something really girlish with your sarees other than going with the same traditional drape and blouse styles your mom or even your grandma wears?

Quite lately girls are doing just that. But still we’re limited for designs termed “in-style” rather that what is really “you”.

This blog Desi Fashion Police is a wonderful place with a vast collection of so many innovative things to do with sarees. It offers good guidance for ladies who’d like to try something new without looking like a total disaster.

Among the posts you find new blouse designs, various saree draping methods, guide to accessorising an outfit…. even posts on the mistakes we do!

Yes, the posts about our blunders made me write this post… I have so many people to guide me on how to do something but nobody ever warns me of possible pitfalls. So I’m most grateful to the Desi Fashion Police.

Waving Flag by K’NAAN (Celebration Remix) Lyrics

06/05/2010 at 12:45 pm (Sport) (, , , , , )

Oh oh oh oh oh…Give me Freedom, Give me fire
Give me reason, Take me higher
See the champions, Take the field now
Unify us, make us feel proud

In the streets our hands are lifting
As we lose our inhibition
Celebration, it’s around us
Every nation, all around us

Sing forever young
Singing songs underneath the sun
Let’s rejoice in the beautiful game
And together at the end of the day

We all say
When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a waving flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back, and then it goes …

When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a waving flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back, and then it goes …

Oh oh oh oh oh…

Give you Freedom, Give you fire
Give you reason, Take you higher
See the champions, Take the field now
Unify us, make us feel proud

In the streets our hands are lifting
As we lose our inhibition
Celebration, its around us
Every nation, all around us

Sing forever young,
Singing songs underneath the sun
Let’s rejoice in the beautiful game
And together at the end of the day

We all say
When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a waving flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back, and then it goes …

When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a waving flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back, and then it goes …

Oh oh oh oh oh…

We all say
When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a waving flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back, and then it goes …

When I get older, I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom, just like a waving flag
And then it goes back, and then it goes back
And then it goes back, and then it goes …

(Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhh)
And everybody will be singing it
(Ohhhh Ohhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhh)
And we all will be singing it
