Want to share something funny that happened just now..
My fiance datang rumah after his round of lepak with his buddies.. Masa tuh me and my parents were in the kitchen, them watching kung fu movie and me main internet. We discussed bout our wedding theme colours and plan for Chore's and Gel's wedding this week.
I show them this blog for the first time, and boy, were they excited to read it.. haha.. untuk informasi, my parents ni bukan lah IT savvy sgt, lebih2 lagi my mom tu.. dia ada email my brother buatkan, tapi tak pernah bukak..sia2 je forward macam2 kat dia..hehe
So, I tunjuklah the pictures, the posts, the wedding tickers and all..semangat je diorg nak tau semua
Masa hantar my fiance sampai pintu time dia nak balik, i gi dapur, my parents dah chotchet2 dua org..
Dad: Macammana ni nak gi next entri ni? *click butang next blog*
Me: Eh, ayah tekan apa tu, bukan la..itu nak tgk blog org lain.. tekan back.. tekan sinilah.. older post or next post..
Mom:Yang Ini ke facebook2 yg korg dok sebok2 tu?
Me: Tak.. ini blog. Macam Raja Petra, Khir Toyo pun ada blog, semua org boleh buat blog. Facebook tuh lain.. *tak tau nak explain macammana*
Dad: Isy tak nampak la, ayah tak pakai spec *muka dah 2 inch from the screen, sambil click2 lagi butang navigasi yg lain* Eh, ada gambar ayah la..tgk ada org comment apa2 tak?

P/S: Congrats to my cousin Chore for his solemnization last weekend! Welcome to the family Kak Chore.. pictures on the way.. !
What are some classier options for girls who don’t want strippers and alcohol? *cough*that would be me*cough
Some of the most popular new top class activities include:-
A glamorous weekend away at a boutique hotel with lots of pampering. Try a hotel with its own day spa attached to the property for the ultimate luxury.
Cantek gak tu, spa beramai2 sambil gosip.. Any good recommendation of spa?
High Tea – think three tier cake stands and little sandwiches for a sophisticated Hens Night. There are lots of fab bars and restaurants that do this now.
Terbayang scene desperate housewives season lama, Bree invite the ladies to a high tea just to annouce she's engaged.
Cocktail classes are starting to crop up too. This is a great way to have some fun and learn a few tricks and have the bar to yourself for a bit. Then best of all you get to enjoy the results of your lesson!
Boleh disubstitute dengan pastry class..maybe, choc moist cake or lemon meringue
Make Up And Pamper Parties – This is great idea for some girly bonding. And it’s all in the one place so it’s perfect. Organize a therapist to come to your venue and spend the evening knee deep in manicures, facemasks and massages.Decorate your house with the colours of love: pink and silver, topped with heart balloons, table confetti and party banners.
Sounds heavenly.. :)
Pole Dancing Weekend
An Evening with A Tarot Card Reader – Find a reputable tarot card reader to join you and the girls for an evening of readings and predictions.
Who pays for the Hen’s Night? The general rule of thumb is that the girls attending the Hen’s Night pay for themselves and the bride to be. The bride to be has the huge expense of the upcoming wedding and everything that entails so a great opportunity to treat her.
What activities recommended? One fun activity is a quiz to see how well the bride knows her husband to be and vice versa. Email the groom before the Hen’s Night with a list of questions similar to the ones on the movie Green Card! i.e. Favourite Food, Perfume/Aftershave, Film, Most embarrassing experience etc or How they met?Then at the Hen’s Night ask the girl the questions in front of the gang and see how well she knows her hubby to be!
How far before the wedding should we have the hen’s night? Generally a couple of weeks before the wedding is a good idea. This gives the bride to be some time out before the big day to relax and have fun. Definitely would not recommend the night before the wedding … a hung over bride with bags under her eyes and dull, de-hydrated skin is not a good look
Top 5 things to take -An autograph book or similar to fill with marriage tips for the bride. -Disposable cameras, with flash, to catch the action. -Condoms, Courgettes, Coins (for games). -Some form of headgear for the bride.
Been busy these few days, scouting for furnitures for our living room. Sambil tu bukak jugak la website for interior design for space layout and ideas..
Paling best kat Midvalley, go to the second floor.. you'll have all of the home and living stores waiting to be raid.. Cellini, Lorenzo, Abitex .. wah ni sume ni designer brands. Memang berangan kuat aku ni. hehe
Cellini, I fell in love with their black sofa set. and also their love seat. black and red really is a great combo, doncha think? *cuma harga je out of our budget.. hehe*
Lorenzo.. Right now ada Sale, kalau Sale kat Lorenzo you can get until 80%! Very nice leather sofa designs and also dining table set..
Nih, boss tgh test keempukan sofa
I've got my eyes set on this sofa. Sangat comfy and will look great in our living room. after discount, we can afford this, right dear? hehe.. the problem is yang tinggal only sucky color..If opt for different fabric and material we won't get the same price anymore..
We're also considering IKEA and IKANO stuff, skrg tgh go thru their catalogue. They got nice design but maybe we'll buy wardrobe and bedset. *sangat suka yang open concept wardrobe, tapi takut nnt dusty pulak baju2 ku.. hmmm*
I read forums just to get respond and feedback from buyers. And thru my readings dapat la few tips... Tips yang penting:
1) Dont buy from Red Apple, La Cafa, Mode Studio, Winter ( all in the same management).. I read in horror the victims' experience. Delivery problem, Quality not the same as display unit, poor after sales.. to name a few.
2) Please check the quality and ask many questions,..Now this is where the local brand and imported brand comes into consideration. Very subjective, you'll get what you pay for.But somehow I know there must be a place i can buy good quality furnitures with affordable price.. *must*keep*looking*
I also read about desigva here.. more to interior design and modern concept. Perfect!.. must pay a visit to their showroom at Mont Kiara this weekend.
I'm on a perfume hunting for my hantaran. My fiance already bought me Anna Sui's Flight of Fancy. It's in whole set and to my delight, it comes with a lot of freebies. Mascara, 2 makeup bags, eu de toilette miniatures, basic skincares in travel set and a cute notebook. :)
My fiance is currently using Hugo Boss, he looove the perfume, tak habis satu botol lagi dah beli baru. Thought of buying new fragrance for him..just for a change.
Now, there are only 3 perfumes that's on my list (for now)..
Paco Rabane 1 Million.
Packaging yang sangat menarik, I love Paco Rabane perfume so much that i wear Ultraviolet for men satu masa dulu. Hihi... 1 Million smells sweet but some said, its too sweet until its unmasculinely. I really fancy the bottle tho.. mmg cantik atas dulangku.. :)
Sampai sekarang masih tercari2 tester for this perfume.. Newly launched and raved to appeal to the iconic English gentlemen. Think Daniel Craig, Clive Owen.. Hmmm... Menarik gak tuh..
Burberry Men by Burberry.
This scent is woody and musky. No need to reapply as it lasts all day long. Yeah, woody is very manly, bau kayu-kayuan.. I heard good reviews for Burberry, my father is a huge fan and I know his taste is impeccable! So, might also consider this one.
Others: Narciso Rodriguez.. Somebody suggested this, boleh la test kat Isetan time lunch hour esok lusa.. :)
I'm starting to get some ideas of how our kitchen will look like. My dream kitchen will be contemporary style: modern and minimalist. My fiance on the other hand, love wood stuff, ala balinese. Since we'll be living in a condo, space is definitely an issue. But, if given the right design arrangement and utilization, can turn out to be super hawt!
I found this on "Rahsia Selebriti Berkahwin Pada Budget RM25000". Bought this book at MPH a while back. I found that there are few tips and tricks that could be applied.. Byg gak la yg menarik.
- Tentukan jumlah tetamu yang akan hadir dan kira kos. Fikirkan siapa yang boleh dikecualikan daripada jemputan untuk menjimatkan kos
Who? Sudah tentu ex gf dan ex bf. Perlu ke nak jemput? If you ask me.. BIG NO.
Tempah tempat berkahwin. Jika dirumah perlu tempah penyedia katering dan kanopi. Tentukan sekiranya memerlukan sistem bunyi dan karaoke. Teliti betul2 jika jumlah harga yang dikenakan adalah lebih murah jika mengambil perkhidmatan ini secara berasingan dengan katering atau sebagai pakej. Kadangkala harganya lebih mahal jika pihak katering mengupah orang lain dan mengambil sedikit komisyen. This one at my side dah settle, will hire the same caterer masa bertunang hari tu. Hiburan? Kalau ikut my dad dia nak kumpulan ghazal, org bersilat, lagu asli. Hehehe..Ayah, itu sume nnt kita bincang lagi k..My and my fiance tgh compile love songs to be played on our wedding. If you got any suggestions, feel free to leave comments..
The news came in yesterday. My fiance will be based here in Malaysia instead of Kuwait. Because of working permit and also the company needs him here to take care of new projects nearer to home. Thank God! Tak perlu lah lagi berjauhan.. hehe.. Now we need to sit down and discuss our plans. His new house at Bukit Jalil baru je siap, he'll stay there until we get married. At the meantime, tgh sibuk2 nak plan renovation to the house. Pasang kitchen cabinet, lampu, aircond bagai.
OK, add that to the list that will keep us busy from now..Whatever it is, I'm just ecstatic knowing that he'll be here with me. (^___^)V eventhough things might swerve the other way round from what we initially planned..
Yesterday, we stayed up late, buat layout for our wedding card.Pilih surah, Chose this picture as the cover.. credit to Encik Armi :)
Now that my fiance has extended his vacation, saya dah mula susun taktik. This week we'll go see kad kahwin. I have a few on my mind already, kandadinda in Puchong, 1 in Kajang and also 1 in Shah Alam, oh and 1 in Medan Mara as suggested by Qila. :)
What I'm looking for:
Initially, berangan nak tempah kad kawen grand, hard cover and embossed + our pictures some more.. from Bandung. Dah gi survey, the one that fit what i wanted was a bit over our budget. Dan setelah di consult ramai org, better amik kat sini je la, taking into account shipping charges and all, rasa agak tak worth it.. lagipun kad kawen ni nnt org buang2 jugak.
Masa kat Bandung ada 2 tempat dah pergi. Jasmine Invitation card on Jln Cibadak and Etnik Card in Pasar Baru. Miss Linda was really helpful and layan me n my parents dgn sgt baik. She even gave me a sample of this card, which i lovvveee, to take back home with me. :)
Etnik Card also not bad, many great choices..and bapak tuh pun siap buat layout lagi for my card. How sweet of u, bapak..
This weekend ada 1 wedding to attend in Melaka, next weekend is my cousin's wedding in Muar.
My lovely friends sejurus sebelum rombongan lelaki sampai, tatkala ini hujan telah mula turun renyai2- taken from Wynn's cam. Hati2 ya nany.. :p
Merah nye mereka. I like uncle's sampin, sgt comel. Itu tunang saya yg berbaju kelabu OK, time ni agak cuak la, kelihatan aunty mengalir air mata, syukurlah..semua dah selesai The Ring.. Love it, tapi masih lagi conscious takut tercalar, so kurangkan sikit pergerakan tangan
With cousins and sister, byk membantu dlm menjayakan majlis, thanks adik2 ku sayang
With cousins and brother yang meluangkan masa datang, albeit the busy schedule. muchas gracias
With total boys..thanks for the great shots. anda memang obses..additional terkini..yang tengah2 tu
My flower girls yang dah tak larat smile for the camera..hahaha..
