About the blog

Mother of Xander had a makeover!

来啊! 来啊! 郑宇他妈整容咯! Ahem… not that kind of makeover. The website had a makeover lah.

This was how it used to look

My last blog makeover was 2 years ago. How time flies eh? Friends who have been following my blog will remember the previous look which was based on China’s cultural revolution. Ya, it had the classic red flags and Mao hat, that sort.

In order to retain the super cheena spirit that I love, the new look is based on the 1930s Vintage Shanghai pinup girl. Sort of.

Who designed the new site you might ask. Of course it’s The Husband. Again. From the buttons to the seksi pinup girl to the structure of the site. All him. So clever ah this fella? *giggle* If you are interested to engage him for your site makeover, I suggest you contact him directly. The pinup girl portrait of me only took him 8 YEARS to do. *rolleyes*

Why this theme? Well, we were having tea at Dong Po Colonial Cafe recently when he suddenly asked me what sort of look I would like for my blog. Since he was in the mood to redesign his own blog, he said he will refresh mine as well. Woots! So I looked around and spotted the posters of the 1930s Shanghai girls. I pointed to it and said “NAH! I like that I wan that gimme that!” To that he said “DONE!” The rest was history.

The trouble with the themes on WordPress is that not everything (my Chinese words for example) gets formatted properly. I am in the midst of doing some housekeeping and if you spot anything unusual, please let me know!

Contact me on Facebook or email me at motherof@xander.sg.

If you just want to chat with me, ALSO CAN!

Thank you for visiting Mother of Xander’s blog. I hope to see you back again soon!
