After a tiring (but exciting) wedding day, we both think we deserve a special treat so we headed to Kenko Reflexology Fish & Spa at Pavilion for a foot therapy, called the Fish Spa Therapy. It is not like any other foot therapies bcoz the masseurs are not human, but fishes - lots and lots of 'em!
The fishes are called Garra Ruffa (sounds like Piranha-ish ey?) or also known as Doctor Fish. What they do is, they will nibble away the scaly and dead skin on your feet, and also ease the symptoms of skin conditions like psoriasis and abscesses (whatever that is). The nibbling process feels like micro-massage, and it promotes healthy blood circulation of the skin.
Here's a short clip of the Doctor Fish that I managed to record:

Alhamdulillah, MZ and I sudah selamat di ijabkabul last Saturday night. Words can't describe the happiness and contentment that I'm feeling now - it's the bestest feeling I've ever felt (I'm sure you married people know that feeling too, huh!).
Anyway, I won't go into detail about the ceremony just yet as I don't have all the photos from start to the end, so lemme just show you the preparation pics a day before the wedding day.
Besides the bride (well, it's my wedding so of course, right? ;p), this li'l boy was also the center of everyone's attention on that night!

I can't describe what I'm feeling at the moment. This bride-to-be is excited and anxious and frantic and nervous and feverish all at the same time, and.. kinda drowsy too (must be the medicines).
Yeap, I have runny nose and my eyes are kinda red and watery as a result of bergelumang dgn habuk2 selama 2 hari. Not good, not good. I know brides are supposed to have "enough rest and sleep" before the Big Day but in my case, bride or not, I still have to do some of the housework since there's no one else yg bole diharapkan, except my mom and maid. But starting from today (hopefully), I can goyang kaki coz my grandma's maid is finally here to help with the cleanings. I just hope I could squeeze some time for last-minute pampering (massage, pedicure and manicure) a day before the Big Day!
Anyways, besides cleaning the whole house, here's the preparations for the final week:
- Dress-fitting at Kapas
- MZ and I had our last facials before the Big Day
- Montage preview at Manggis
- The landscape people came
- Mr. A from Kapas came to my house for final dress-fitting
- appointment with Istana Budaya band to confirm about the list of songs
- the canopy people arrive
- Mr. F (my dad's friend, who's the ID and also the sponsor for bilik pengantin) will start decorating the room
- Mr. A from Kapas will deliver my veil and selendangs
- Dress-fitting with Rizman Ruzaini for the reception dress at Dewan Perdana
- Mr. K and his team from Kapas will start doing the two pelamins, hantarans and other deco
- last-minute pampering (hopefully!)
- WEDDING DAY!
Btw, I have 2 baju for this Saturday's event - supposedly, one is for nikah (white), and the other one is for sanding (off-white). Which means, right after akad, MZ and I will change to a different outfits for sanding. But now I'm not sure nak tuka2 or just wear satu baju jer for the whole ceremony bcoz my mom takut jadi kelam-kabut (what with my tudung and all). Should I, or should I not tuka2 baju? Has anyone experienced this kind of situation before...?

Oh, I'm talking about our honeymoon spot.
My dad will be sponsoring our honeymoon trip, and now after a month of thinking and researching, I still haven't made up my mind (I thought we're going end of next month, that's why). It ain't easy I'm telling ya; there's a whole wide world to choose from and you know the trouble I have with making decisions! All I know is that I wanna go somewhere colder than Malaysia, a place where both of us have never been before (but Europe/US is an exception - I mean, I've never been to US and he has never been to Europe), and of course tempat yg shopping best dan murah! We have to go right after my reception, which is hmm... in about 2 weeks' time (sempat ker ni?) as MZ will be starting work early of March. It's actually a last-minute decision bcoz of some unavoidable reasons (well, work. What else?).
I do have a few places in mind...
Tomorrow we're going to find some travel agencies and make our decision right then and there (I hope!). Kalau susah sgt, honeymoon kat kampung jela... ;p

Anyway, I can't be spending too much time blogging now bcoz starting from today onwards I'll be busier than before, so let the pictures do the talking.
12.30 noon - Food testing at Dewan Perdana
Now this is the happiest trip ever to Kapas bcoz:
a) one of my bajus turns out to be nicer than I thought (seriously my mom and I were so worried about it before. Which is why I didn't really blog about my dresses that much!), and
b) I asked Mr. A whether I should wear a corset and he said "No dear! You have a perfect figure already!"
Hee... that really made my day! ;D
(few days ago I received some remarks from some people saying I'm so kurus, and not slim. The way they said it was as if I was skeletal! Saba jela aku.. dulu masa gemok ngata2 gak. Skang dah slim down pon sama. It's so aggravating coz it's like whatever I do is not right, you know what I mean? But hey, as long I'm happy with the way I am then that's what matters bcoz I'm the one who is living inside this body of mine. Why should I care about other people's "concerns", right? And most importantly, my husband-to-be loves the new me! I'm sorry if I sound a bit too emotional - blame the PMS - but I just can't contain it anymore. Lemas la dengar isu kurus/gemok ni seriously!). There.
Actually, I'll leave that to you to figure it out ;) It's not fully finished btw.

MZ and I decided to pamper ourselves at Serenity Spa today, at Grand BlueWave Hotel. We chose the King and Queen Bridal Treat, which is a 5-hour top-to-toe treatment that includes intensive brightening facial, 4-step full body spa, foot scrub, manicure and pedicure.
After the facial, I was led to another room for the next treatment, which is the 4-step full body spa. It's a 2-hour treatment and it started with a 20-minute Thai Herbal Steam (kind of like sauna) and I was given a cup of warm water to drink after that. Then came my favorite treatment of all - the full body aromatherapy massage! I've done a few massages before (at different places), but so far this is the best. The Indonesian masseuse was a nice and polite lady, and she made me feel comfortable and I wasn't shy at all, which makes the whole process relaxing. After massaging, the treatment continues with a full body scrub. It was a choice between ground coffee mixed with clay or Himalayan salt scrub, so I chose coffee bcoz a) I've done salt-scrubbing before, and b) bcoz it helps to reduce cellulite (now if you drink it, the effect will be the opposite!). There was not a single part of my body that was not being scrubbed by the masseuse - depan belakang atas bawah, semua kena scrub! ;p But I felt squeaky clean after that! The last step of the full body spa is soaking in a tub of milk mixed with lavender oil, with candles surrounding the tub. Heaaaaavenn!
Finally came the foot scrub. My feet were soaked in antiseptic + lavender oil + flower petals, and scrubbed using sea salt and something else, which I'm not sure what it was. And as usual, before ending a treatment, we we served hot tea... Overall, thumbs up, especially the body spa. I am definitely coming again (as for facial, I still prefer Kaj above all).
p/s: Remember my wisdom teeth? Well, there was no pain for about a week after taking the meds but now they're aching again - even worse than before! Why laaaa...? *sigh* I guess I'll have to see the dentist tomorrow for more antibiotics..
