Made Me March 2011: The Second Week

We are into the last two weeks of Made Me March! Yes, I’m still excited doing this challenge! Here’re my daily outfits for the second week of MMM2011 finally:)

Hours worn: 7 hours

Number of times I have worn the dress: Around 5 times

Wear Again: Yes, it’s rather suitable for casual weekdays. Only thing is the fabric isn’t that comfortable so this dress might be replaced once I’ve made a better version.

Day 11 (Friday)

My mum told me that a major earthquake hit Japan today (we were booked to visit Tokyo and Hokkaido in July) but I didn’t realize how serious it was till I watched the news at night. We were deeply saddened by scenes of the tsunami and earthquake. Hubby and I had our honeymoon in Japan many years ago where we visited Sendai and as the Shinkansen we took went passed Fukushima, I remembered telling hubby how beautiful the mountains were and how I wished to visit the place in future. We prayed for the people affected and I started checking out Japanese sewing blogs and was relieved that our Japanese sewing/blogging comrades are fine. I have also learnt to cherish and love our family and friends more through the tragedy. As I wrote to the ryokans we have booked to make cancellations rather reluctantly, the owners told us they were still experiencing aftershocks and hope things would get back to normal soon. I hope so too.

Wish me luck:)
