Cheap Formal Dresses

I was enjoying our ladies meet-up for tea a week ago and when ladies got together topics for discussion will naturally be about our children, their careers and their love lives.  From the exchange of updates I know that there'll be some wedding invitations in the pipeline.

One of my friends lamented that she's got invited to two weddings in a 5 star hotel in Kuala Lumpur, one is for a lunch reception while the other is for dinner.  No dress code was stated on the invitation card for the lunch, so I suppose she can wear something not so formal.  The dress code for the wedding dinner was stated as formal - long gown.  She was having a headache and couldn't make up her mind as to what to wear to both functions and even though she may have quite a few formal dresses and gowns but then she couldn't be wearing the same dresses to those dinner receptions often.  It's alright to wear those dresses twice or thrice provided that the functions are different and with different groups of friends.





The question of what to wear to certain functions or events can be quite mind boggling.  Casual wear is different as we can always mix and match our attire but this is not so with formal wear.  Also formal wear can be quite expensive and as I've said before we cannot 'recycle' them too often.

But nowadays with the advent of the internet and shopping online, there are many websites that offer
cheap formal dresses  online which are  greatly affordable.  You will be spoilt for choice with what to wear to attend a wedding reception, anniversary dinner, formal with classic designs and not so formal as well. There are also special dresses to wear to a prom, cocktail, a night out, short mini ones, ankle length gowns and full length ball gowns.  Fret not if you’re on the plump side as some websites also cater for plus size formal dresses. For summer, there’s a wide range of floral dresses with light, pastel prints with straight or asymmetrical hemlines.  One can also carry a lightweight wrap to cover their shoulders due to variable weather like from the gardens to an air conditioned venue.






Free shipping and free returns are available for orders above a certain price while some websites offer attractive discounts to first time customers. In short, you can find all sorts of cheap formal dresses for all occasions and events with accompanying accessories, presale and discount to suit your budget.

Marble Castella Cake ~ 长崎蛋糕

What's for tea?  A soft, light and non-greasy Marble Castella ~  Kasutera cake.  I didn't line the pan with foil this time, only with parchment paper and was very pleased that the bottom of the cake didn't stick onto the paper and yielded a perfect brown base.  Indeed a delicious cake to be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Chinese Pumpkin Pancake ~ 金瓜饼

This pumpkin pancake is soft and delicate and not too sweet as the sweetness is only from the red bean paste filling.   For a crispy pancake you can deep-fry them but I chose to just shallow pan-fry them in a non-stick pan.   This is great to serve as a tea-time snack over a cup of brimming hot Chinese tea.
