Urusan Borang Nikah and such

Dear readers,

Kerana terlalu banyak kekeliruan untuk bakal pengantin untuk isi borang nikah, saya sediakan simple guide supaya senang nak tau kemana perlu dituju dulu. Yang ni untuk situasi yang begini ya..

Lelaki: alamat IC dan alamat sekarang = shah alam, nikah = masjid besar shah alam

Perempuan: alamat IC= Ipoh, alamat sekarang= shah alam, nikah=masjid besar shah alam (nikah bukan di masjid terdekat di rumah)

Pihak perempuan: Sebelum tu sila baca ini untuk prosedur lengkap DOKUMEN SOKONGAN PEMOHON PEREMPUAN

  1. Sebab alamat IC tak sama ngan alamat sekarang, perlu ada borang bermastautin. Boleh download di sini.ORIGINAL Form. Isi siap2 dan kemudian baru pergi ke masjid berdekatan rumah (di panggil masjid di mukim) untuk pengesahan pihak masjid.

  2. Pergi ke pentadbiran masjid dan tunjukkan borang bermastautin.Pihak masjid akan tandatangan untuk sahkan anda bermastautin di mukim itu. Kemudian mereka akan beri nombor ustaz yang jadi penolong pendaftar nikah (PPN) untuk masjid itu. Sila call ustaz itu untuk buat appoinment. Tujuan appoinment untuk dia menyemak borang nikah yang sudah siap dan approve.

  3. Sudah buat appoinment, baru isi borang2 nikah. Borang nikah boleh diambil di JAIS atau download di sini. BORANG 1C (PEMOHON PEREMPUAN) dan satu lagi borang kena isi PERWAKILAN WALI / WAKALAH WALI (PEMOHON PEREMPUAN).

  4. Kepada yang belum buat HIV test, sila buat di Klinik-klinik kerajaan berhampiran, klik link ini untuk senarai klinik. INGAT: Sila call dulu sebelum datang sebab lain klinik lain prosedur, kena buat appoinment ke, hari apa bukak for HIV test, pukul berapa dan sebagainya. Borang HIV untuk Selangor boleh didapati di JAIS, tak ada online. Kena amik original form. Di mana JAIS? Bangunan Sultan Idris, sebelah masjid besar shah alam.

  5. Bila dah siap semua, baru jumpa PPN yang dah buat appoinment tu. Sila datang dengan wali dan 2 orang saksi, bersama dengan borang nikah yang sudah siap diisi oleh pihak lelaki dan dokumen sokongan yang lain. PPN akan approve dan tandatangan.

  6. Kemudian baru lah pergi ke JAIS/PAID (Pejabat Agama Islam Daerah) untuk mereka pula yang approve. Tak payah bawa wali dan 2 saksi pun tak apa.

  7. Dalam pada itu, disebabkan saya nak bernikah di masjid besar shah alam, saya ambil contact nombor PPN untuk masjid itu, Ustaz Khoirudin. (Boleh ambil nombor contact di JAIS) Dia lah yang akan jadi tok kadi saya nanti. Kena booking dewan nikah, tarikh dan bayar deposit.

  8. Selesai semua, tahniah. Dah boleh nikah..!

P/S: Turutan ini sebab rumah saya, masjid shah alam, JAIS dan klinik kesihatan berada dalam satu kawasan.

E-Invitation

Dear readers,

I stumbled upon this idea when searching for the cheapest paper bag yesterday. Bagusnya idea ni.. instead of scan the kad kahwin, why not use a little bit of creativity and put up a video of your E-Invitation, for those yang tak dpt hantar card atas alasan tertentu. (money constraint, tetamu terlebih and such)

What you need is a guy/gal who is really good in editing, and throw in some pictures with audio.. dah siap.. :) Email it, facebook it, youtube it as you want.
This is too cute! Wish I can create one like this!



Nice one.. tapi agak panjang video nyer..



For the couple who has sense of humour.. pun panjang gak

Gerak Gempur hari Jumaat

Dear readers,


Acara gerak gempur sudah bermula. Hari ini sudah selesai beberapa perkara penting.

1) Urusan borang nikah
2) Booking tok kadi dan dewan nikah masjid besar shah alam
3) Kain untuk family
4) Booking ticket flight honeymoon
5) Survey katil dan wardrobe untuk rumah
6) Confirm design kad kahwin


Aku terasa macam superwoman, boleh buat semua benda ni dalam sehari saja. Thanks to my mom yang gigih berpeluh,temankan kami ke sana ke mari settle kan all these stuff.

Urusan borang nikah
Tak complete lagi, but dah ambil borang apa yang patut dan buat appoinment dengan penolong pendaftar nikah. Insya-Allah kalau tak de apa2 by Rabu next week boleh selesai dan submit borang nikah. Kalau rajin, saya akan buat entry khas untuk bakal pengantin, simple guide untuk settlekan borang nikah.
Yang buat saya ralat, hari ni patut buat HIV test tapi kenapalah aku tak call dulu klinik tu, rupa-rupanya dia tak buat HIV test hari Jumaat! Kalau tak, dah selesai satu perkara.


Booking tok kadi, dan dewan nikah di masjid besar shah alam
Alhamdulillah, yang ni dah settle. Dah confirm tarikh and masa dengan Ustaz Khoirudin tu, luckily he's available.. dan jugak dah booking dewan nikah lepas solat jumaat 3 july.

Kain untuk family.
Yang ni impromptu je, kebetulan ada kat SACC mall, terus je gi Euro Moda. Ada sale.. siap time kami datang tuh, ada happy hour lagi. Aik, kat sini pun ada happy hour ke? Bought pink chiffon for the ladies and chocolate brown satin for the guys. Esok ada family gathering kat Mak Chik's new house, so boleh la pass around the kain to the aunts.


Booking ticket flight honeymoon
So, its confirmed already. Will be flying to Krabi 2 days after bertandang, for 5 days. Tapi yang tension nya, bila check the resort, honeymoon package tak available pulak.. grrr... semalam check elok je ada. Booking resort tuh esok la, penat dah hari ni nak cari2 lagi.

Survey katil dan wardrobe
Ini kat area seksyen 9 je. Just a small shop, tapi tengah sale. Just looking around, ada mattress yang best. Dia berteknologi pocketed spring. Agak tebal dari tilam biasa, tapi so comfortable.. saya mencari yang not too stiff. Tahap keanjalan yang sedang2. Boleh baca lebih lanjut tentang teknologi pocketed spring di sini

Confirm design kad kahwin
OK, yang ni kitorg dah confirm, Farah and Asyraf, the kiddoes from Mahligai Creative dah siapkan the design and wordings dat we want. It was superb, walaupun takde la canggih mana kad kitorg, but still it looks nice in our eyes. Good job kiddoes! Tinggal nak revise the map je, by ahad ni boleh confirm terus lah. Senang cita..

Wedding date.. Dipercepatkan!

Dear readers,
Yea... I could not believe it myself.. Our wedding date fast
forward to July! Not middle, not end, but early July. Sebenarnya dah tau since
last week, itu pasal gerakan besar-besaran dah dimulakan..
But why? why? WHY... tetiba
nak kawen cepat. mesti ada udang di sebalik batu ni.. kata si Joyah
Don't be so creative my friends. antara reason
dipercepatkan
a) His parents are going for Haji end of this year, setelah
berbincang lebih elok settlekan hal kawen cepat.
b) His baby sister cuma cuti for summer holidays yang
jatuhnya june july
c) My parents lagi suka kawen cepat supaya dapat cucu
cepat
And the date itself was chosen ikut mana date yang kosong je kat dewan area Shah
Alam. We're so lucky there was someone cancelling a reservation the day his
parents survey kat dewan MBSA Shah Alam. Dengan pantas booking date 5th of July for majlis bertandang.
Hooray!
So our date will be 3rd July for nikah, 4th July for sanding,
5th July for bertandang.
Save the date guys!
Murni and Shu,
Aku rasa korang ada kat tanahair time ni. Diwajibkan bawa anak bujang kamu sekali!
Bibah,
Sorry lah babe, no choice.. tarikh tu je yang ada lain2 full, :( tapi takpe, we still can go lepak after you come back k..
I'm off tomorrow to settle borang nikah and HIV test. I know
i won't get to settle the borang nikah things within a day. Misi sukar.. at
least I have some idea what to expect.

Mari berangan epy 4: Design Baju Nikah

Dear readers,

Ya.. today aku memang gila sikit, sebab 3 post sekali, sebenarnya agak berdebar2 bila memikirkan tarikh semakin dekat.

Untuk my baju nikah, I can not imagine yet how the kain will turn out to be.. but looking at these photos, aku terus suka design ini.






Wedding Raja Nazrin with Zara Salim Davidson.. masa mula2 diorg nak kawen, aku kena tipu ngn Farah, dia kata, haa dia ni la yg owner butik Zaara. Aku percaya. Chet..

Anyway, her dress is simple french lace kebaya by Radzuwan Radziwill (baju kamu buat kat dia kan Anil? How lucky of you!) but still gorgeous! Love the sheerness of her veil, mind you its 3m long.. love ze hair... :)



Yang ni pun cantik je. lebih kurang je ngn skin colour. Very elegant I must say. Thumbs up



Yatt dengan baju from Lynda Rahim. Love the details kat tangan and leher.
For my baju nikah, buat kat the same taylor kat Ipoh. Tunjuk gambar ni kat dia, tgk boleh buat tak.. hihihi.. rasanya tak boleh kot sbb material kain lain, takpelah aku berangan je.

Our Honeymoon

Dear readers,

Yesterday I spent almost the whole night surfing the web for the best deal for our honeymoon. Very useful tips, google trip advisor before booking. You can read reviews of the hotels and resort first hand, because what you see in the hotel website may not be what you get. Contohnya, customers complaining about mosquitoes, bugs, rude staffs,noises from construction next door, bla bla...(but some are just too whiny it gets annoying to read) these maybe things you don't want to experience on your honeymoon

So, I shortlisted a few resorts which are value in price ( I think), and got a great honeymoon package. We've decided to go Krabi! Since both of us haven't been there..plus, its low season right now, the prices are way cheaper.
Aonang Paradise Resort

5Days4nights (min) = RM1800
-10% discount massage
-2 romantic dinners
-2 choices of program tour per person (island hopping, snorkling, kayaking, elephant trekking etc)
-20% discount on F&B
-Daily Breakfast in bed
-Fruit Basket and Bed deco
-Honeymoon Cake
-Transfer to airport
-1 evening cocktail
The only thing about this hotel is its location, Ao Nang beach is consider a hot tourist spot, so beach maybe not as beautiful as you will expect, and the hustle and bustle of their nightlife can become a nuisance.
But they provide variety of tour programs.. Check it out here

Krabi Thai Village located at Phra Nang Bay ( got wireless internet!)



-4D3N= RM2200
-3 Nights Accommodation in Deluxe Honeymoon room
-Daily American breakfast at Greenary Restaurant
-Welcome drink and fresh cool towel upon arrival
-One Romantic Candle light Dinner
-Round- trip transfer from and to Krabi Airport
-Romantic flower bed decoration in room
-Honeymoon cake
-One Adventure island excursion with picnic lunch Enjoy the most popular Islands in Krabi, Koh Poda, Koh Tap, Koh Kai and Raily beach
-Relaxing with 2 hours 30 minutes Te rak Package at Vimala Spa( for couple)
A-Hah.. Macam best je deal yang ni. Love the room and the 4 post bed. Terigt lagu Sugar Ray..

Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort (posh resort as claimed by reviewers)

4D3N= RM1745 light and easy

Don't think they provide package for honeymooners since takde dalam website, but still can ask the front desk upon arrival, maybe can get cheaper maybe not..

Layana Resort and Spa (Recommended by tourists because of more secluded beach)


4D3N= RM1710 light and easy
Good location, gorgeous beach..too bad they don't have honeymoon package :(

Also, I checked the air tickets already and last night it was RM340 return for 2 person.
But better hurry, because the deal ends soon, ayuh... kita book ke Krabi sekarang
to dytia, thanks for the tips, u got a better deal i think ;)

Productive Weekend

Dear readers,
Last weekend we managed to settle a lot of stuff.
Saturday:

Bought my skincare set for hantaran: Mary Kohr. I've been using this for a year plus and it suit my skin, don't think I want to resort to any other product for the sake of hantaran.


Rawatan Catiovita Mary Cohr yang sangat berkesan

Went to Semua House to buy kain nikah for my fiance and also drop by the wedding card store downstairs for a quick quotation of our customized card. No kulit keras or anything fancy. Just a simple card with ribbon, and hopefully can get Rm2.50 max per card.

Went to Habib Jewels Ampang to survey cincin kahwin, now tengah sale up to 70%. Hearts on Fire collection is such a gem.. claimed as the finest cut diamond in the world. But unfortunately it was too expensive and wayyy out of our budget. Ada discount pun 10% jer. So, we just bought the 3 piece stone biasa je, 1.0 carat for very reasonable price.. :)


Sunday:

Brought my parents to see our new house at Bukit Jalil, and also go see the showhouse downstairs. Aduuh. cantik sungguh.. biasalah kan showhouse, mmg kasi buat cantik kaw2. Me and my mom dah start berangan dah nak hias camne rumah ni. My dad pulak excited pasal lain since sebelah je ngn golf course, dah plan nak gi golfing with bakal menantu dia. hehe

We went to HSL electrical USJ to survey brg2 rumah. OKlah,dah dapat roughly how much need to prepare to buy the necessities.

We calculated RM5k for 4 items

Toshiba Regza 32" LCD
Pioneer/Sony home theater set
Samsung waching machine 7.5kg
Toshiba fridge

Terus je hantar baju beli semalam to his taylor kat PKNS, dia nak baju melayu with sulam kat leher and tempat butang baju melayu tu. Trend nowadays buat macam tu for baju nikah.. I ikut kan je.. :)

Tonight, my fiance will be flying off to Kuwait, to settle his stuff over there. Tapi tak lama lah, 2 hari je, but still i hate the fact that he'll be flying on an 8 hour flight. I don't know why but I always feel fidgety, maybe because i worry too much. Biasalah perempuan ni berfikir mcm2.

Camne la ko sopi, acad makes a living out of flying. Aku tak suka long flight!

Wedding Cake Haute Couture

Dear readers,


I'm close to find my wedding cake design. Sangat suka okeh browse thru gambar2 cake.. it's like having imaginary orgasm in your head, because all of them looks so yummy and tantalizing. Plus the design is the bomb!


Look at this.. how could one resist from adoring this cake.. Not too much of a design, but it looks clean.

How cool is this ? Combining diferent shapes and patterns, it really stands out. And don't you love the colour? :)

One of my favourite. It screams couture.. Very sleek and sophisticated.


This one more to the fun side, for brides who dare to be different. Funky cake, and the fillings inside also different. Bet it's yummy as it looks!



Love this one..it looks stunning especially the pink blossom flower details. Gojas!!



My most favouritest cake. Love the shape combination, love the colour, love the theme.. nak carik baker yang boleh buat macam ni, or other cakes atas ni at least..hhihihii.. yg penting harus enak. Any recommendation dear friends?
P/S: Expecting the unexpected to happen tapi hanya boleh confirm by next week. It's driving me crazy!

Wedding Favors@Door Gift

Dear readers,
Untuk majlis resepsi di rumahku nanti, masih lagi belum fix apakah jenis wedding favors yang bakal diberi.

Namun ada beberapa idea yang membuatkan hati ini tertarik. I love something that is personalized, practical and unique at the same time. But I love something edible too. So that's a tough call..

Not that i fancy candles as door gift, but how good it looks in an organza pouch, nampak presentable, can also be one of the accessory setting for the table.


.
Love this one, kalau letak kat mug pun cantik.. especially love the 4 side 4 story :)



got it from here
It's just too cute.. thanks too
xeea for the idea. I adore personalized items :)
And also easy for my friends untuk beri hadiah anniversary ingat tarikh kahwin.


Because I heart bright colours..For the little ones.. bright candy or lollipop, surely can get this for cheap price.



kan aku dah cakap aku suka yang boleh makan, yang ni pun eden suka, dalam bentuk Coklat. Siap ada gambar, kalau tak nak letak gambar betul, letak gambar kartun pun OK.

Great, now let's start the hunting game!

Wedding Gift Registry

Dear readers,



Sekadar gambar hiasan



Yang paling selalu kita dengar cerita org baru kawen ialah issue wedding gift. Ada yang dapat sampai 5 blender, 8 rice cooker, 4 periuk nasi dsb. Even worse, you got something you don't even need. Ya, bukanlah kita tak berterima kasih, alangkah bersyukurnya ada jugak org bagi hadiah, tapi kalau dah dapat 8 rice cooker tu, agak2 lagi 7 tuh kat mana lah tempat nya? pasti lah di store, bukan? Tak pun dibuat recycle untuk wedding gift kawan next month.


There is a simple way to handle this. Wedding gift registry. This has been popular in the west but not in our country. It's a simple online registry that couples create to share with family and friends their wishlist. Kepada yang bermasalah tak tau nak beli apa, nah, selesai masalah itu. Ada juga website yang siap ada online shopping. Lagi bagus, friends don't have to go out of the way to buy gifts, just browse their choices of gifts according to budget range. And click away.


Tapi masalahnya, ia masih lagi baru in our culture, aunts and uncles will surely raise eyebrow upon hearing this. Very unconventional..

But still, I consider this idea as practical and brilliant.

Check out this website for your free wedding gift registry online.

P/S: Boleh juga create wishlist sendiri tanpa perlu register online. Medium: blog. Just use your own creativity. Hehe

A moment of silence

Dear Readers,

I want to take a moment of silence for us to recite Al-Fatihah to a little one, who sadly didn't make it to see the world. :( Sha, I hope you can be strong to go thru this hard time, all our prayers will go to the baby and to your family.
Love you babe.
Al-fatihah..
12/4/09-Baby Alexander in memory , semoga kau tenang di sana dan menjadi pengiring ibumu di syurga kelak.

Si Hidung mancung dan Si Hidung kemek

Dear readers,


Akis, Uya and Ijan


Meet Akis and Uya, my favourite lil cousins. They were my flower gals on my engagement day. Sangat rapat dua org ni, always been mistaken as twins. How arwah atok distinguished them is one hidung mancung and one hidung kemek.

They've so got used to that..among the normal everyday conversation:

Uya: "Opah..ni hidung mancung ni, nak cakap ngn hidung kemek ke?"

Cute

Whenever they came to my house, they always sleep in with me, and before going to bed selalu la main girlie games together, like Sally's Salon or Jojo's Fashion Show on my laptop. They love that a lot. (me too.. hihi) That day, i showed them pictures of our new house.. pastu cerita la pasal bedrooms, the swimming pool downstairs, the sofa set.

Then, the truly unexpected came out from Akis.

Akis: Kak Nyah, cantik rumah ni, bilik untuk anak-anak ada tak? Yang mana? Nak letak apa?

I was stunned, aku pun tak terpikir lagi sampai situ.. hehe.. When they say kids say the darnest things, I believe that.. that's why i love kids..so honest and innocent

:)

How To Decorate Our Living Room?

Dear readers,

Yay, we finally bought our sofa set.. ! Yang paling best, I got my own love seat yang diidam2kan.. hehe. Our sofa set is fabric based and L-shaped and comes with 5 pillows. Mmg suka bantal byk2 nie, boleh main pillow fight. We also bought coffee table and TV cabinet at the same store since it was on sale. It's a great deal I must say. :)

Now, other stuff like curtains, carpet, coffee table perhiasan lain will revolve around my Red sofa and love seat.. how do i balance the whole thing? Simple.. Color coordination





Look at this, such a simple yet classy ensemble. But to spice the look of it, I would use another colour for the curtain, something with patterns perhaps.



    Nampak santai sahaja kolobarasi ini. Sesuai untuk si jiwa muda. lihat saja padanan corak pada permaidani dan bantal. Tapi kalau tgk lama2 boleh pening kepala.


Mungkin ada yang berpendapat red leather sofa sangat cantik. Tapi, saya agak kureng sikit, seperti juga how I can't accept red leather jacket like this






....On second thought, not fair to make that comparison. I take that back..hehe

Tips to decorate the living room around red sofa seat
  • Let it be the focal point. Modern design uses a lot of bright colored furniture. Give the room a bright white coat of paint even if your room is already white. This will really freshen things up & make your furniture choice look intentional. *Yes! tak payah spend money on paint..dah memang putih..hehe*

  • Bring in artwork. This can be anything from black & white photography to bright pop art. Just make sure that it hangs on the sofa wall so the whole wall turns into a focal point. *Artwork..hmmm..boleh la bawak audrey hepburn painting dlm bilik ku itu*

  • Make big gestures. Leave the room uncluttered so things don't get too overwhelming. Add in functional pieces like a leather shag rug or a copper art piece.

  • Use dark colored woods. The stain will probably have a few reddish tones in it that with both correlate to & tone down your red sofa.

  • Change the style of the room. If your living room was modern, go for an old world feel. Your furniture will keep things from being too themey. Add in leathers, opulent silks, & comfy throw pillows. *Love the idea of comfy throw pillows, the bulkier the better*

  • Bring in more color. If the starkness of the red against white walls is a little too much for you, bring in other colors. When most people think of red they assume that it matches black, white & red. Take a visit to your local import store where you will see it next to gold & even purple. Just make sure that you leave enough white space in the room so your eyes don't get strained with an over saturation of color. *oh yes, my fiance for sure suka red and black. biasalah kan his fav football club colour :p
Can't wait to decorate the house. Furniture will arrive early May, sebelum tuh kena ada operasi besar-besaran membersihkan rumah. Masa untuk mengerah keringat askar2

Tamarind Spring @ Taman TAR Ampang

Dear readers,
Last night, we had our fine dining at Tamarind Springs, Ampang. Never knew that dalam hutan camtu there is a gem hiding waiting to be discovered. Maybe dah byk org tau pun this place, because it has won many awards. (Credits to my fiance, pandai awak pilih tempat)
It's like a dining in a rainforest experience for me, cool!
Well, this place got 3 restaurants to choose from..Japanese, Italian and Burmese/Vietnam cuisine. Plenty of choices my friends.. We go for the Burmese/Vietnam restaurant.
As for the food, we ordered Deep Fried Fish ( I think it is Kerapu) with special Burmese Sauce. Yummy.. That's their specialty.. we also ordered mix vege with mushroom and chicken with eggplant something (can't remember). The other dishes was so so lah.. But still makan smpai perut buncit.

Pictures taken from their blog.









Boleh la nak makan berdua lagi kat sini, suasana romantik, nyamuk pun takde..

Let the Colours do the talking

Dear readers,

One of the most important thing in a wedding- Colour theme..
Been busy choosing my own, and up to this point, honestly belum lagi set up my mind on which one to choose.
However, found this on the net, I love mixing colours and not stick to just 1 shade.. Here are some of the colours that are prominent and making statements.
Navy Blue
Agak jarang nampak wedding with this colour. Looks really extravagant!
Copper
Reminds me of Autumn, walaupun nampak agak dull, but if throw in a bit of gold colours barulah cleopatra style :) cantek!
Lime Green and White
Now, this colour looks fun.. apple greenish.. sesuai untuk anda yg mahukan concept eco friendly, juga untuk penyokong parti pembangkang .. hehe
Blue and Orange
It's an odd combination, but somehow it works.. i simply love the table decoration..
Pink and Chocolate
Okay, I'm close to choosing this colour as my theme. But maybe nak pakai fuchsia pink which is much more intense, and paired with chocolate. Love it. !
Now, my next move is to survey baju bersanding, susah gak nak cari baju if pilih warna2 pelik ni kan.. haa.. padan muka.

Congratulations Chore! and good job bro..

Dear readers,




Down to memory lane sekejap, taken 20 years back (at least), from left: pengantin, bakal pengantin, lop, along


Sekitar pernikahan & persandingan Chore di Muar last week..


It was the first time for a lot of things.
  • The first cucu Opah Zaharah to get married. Chore is the cucu sulong.
  • The first time I witness an akad nikah upclose. and I mean reaaally close, don't know macammane leh berani and seselamber camtu je dok sebelah tok kadi.. nasib baik tak kena sound.. hehhe adrenaline rush kot..
  • The first time I attend an akad nikah held in Johor. Baru tau in Johor ada byk taklin kena ucap, sampai ibu pengantin pun ada, and that was the most touching moment, dua2 ibu and anak menangis.
  • The first time my big brother jadi tukang kapit. Memang dia semangat lebih, boleh la lps ni hire dia jadi tukang kepit part time ye.. hehe


Time berenti rehat di RnR Seremban.



Akad time, caya la Chore skali lafaz jer. He was really calm and collected at that time.. I know you're so ready for it. Aku pulak yg intense, berdebar2 tak tentu pasal




Selesai sudah upacara akad, pengapit in action, mula menjalankan tugas.



Muka bangga, Macam Aziz Satar dalam Ali Baba bujang lapok pun ada..keke


Newlyweds, berarak masuk ke dewan..

Congrats Chore! Semoga berbahagia di samping isteri tercinta, k..

Rayavadee Krabi

Dear readers,

Calling all you beachbums, honeymooners, traveller's wife (kau la tu bibah)..

Get ready to drool..

I got this recommendation from a colleague in Thailand, Khun Prapas some time ago. He knows I'm getting married this year, and being such a sport and loves his country so much, he recommended this place for our honeymoon..

According to him lah kan, this is more like a 6 star hotel, but he can get half price if I'm going there with my hubby. Look out for their promotion and special offers..

I'd rather go to Krabi than Phuket since Phuket is overrated, and these days not as pretty as before. But then, we're still discussing, tak finalize lagi on our honeymoon..
Pictures are copyright from their website


Look at this, simpy breathtaking.. just like heaven on earth


Snorkelling in the crystal clear water..


Deluxe Pavillion


Master Suite, the Rayavadee Villa



Their swimming pool


This one's my fav, dining in The Grotto


Phranang Beach.. magnificent!
Tapi kena jugak consider political scene in Thailand these days, macam tak selamat nak gi sana. But no doubt, Thailand got so many islands and beaches that are simply amazing..
I think there are a few brideger (bride+blogger) considering Krabi.. good choice I must say!
