But last week, I had an experience that left me quite starstruck. I went to the launch of a new e-store, BuggyBabyBoogie.
And...?? (You're thinking..)
The pain of getting it shipped over and the cost involved got Sheahnee thinking she could do this. She could set up a store that carries hard-to-find items in Malaysia for moms and babes for like-minded parents.
Then as she brainstormed, Sheahnee thought why not take the idea further. Why not design clothes for pregnant and breastfeeding women. After all, those available here are not exactly flattering and very mumsified (that's my own word..howdya like it?). So, out came sketches of sexy mom dresses with strategic zippers that would cater to discrete feeding times.

Other than that, Sheahnee decided to revamp the diaperbag. She got friends - celeb moms in their own rights - Sazzy Falak, Daphne Iking and Aishah Sinclair to design their dream diaperbags which will be available on the e-store soon.

While I was sitting through the whole show-and-tell, I was thinking to myself how do these celebs do it? They all have carried and are carrying their bundles of joy but it doesn't seem they are carrying any battle scars..you know what I mean? I guess, that's why they are who they are and people like yours truly are who we are...*sigh*
Anyway, there are lots of other interesting stuff in the e-store, really. Take the milk bracelet, for instance. These can actually be used to tell from which breast was your baby fed and at what time last. (I know, guys..too much info here!)
Sheahnee already has customers logging on from all over Malaysia and she wants to take the store regional. With market pull she and hubs and support from her friends, I'm sure it'll happen..and quite soon too.
