Oh well, I hope I could get back to my normal eating habits after the wedding is over!
Here's a pic of me and my fiance (oooh I love calling him that! ;p) at Tony Roma last weekend. It was taken right after we had our lunch - Shrimp Scampi Pasta, something called Onion Loaf and Pina Colada. I was actually trying to hold my breath so that my tummy won't "stick out" ;p Sebaik tak nampak perut. Hee hee.
Anyway, Aldo is having a massive sale so as a normal lady who loves shoes, of course I was excited. I've been looking for a tan-colored patent shoes, and had actually found the perfect pair at Forever21 - 5-inch heels, platform, Louboutin-like, slingback, and it's less than RM100! - totally a steal and I was so close to buying it, but unfortunately it has p*g-skin lining.
So when I came across this shoes at Aldo, I bought it without thinking twice even though it's a pump (you know that I have an issue with pumps, right?).
Now I can sleep happily ever after... ;p

You see, my sister received more than 5 kettles for her wedding present dulu. And there were more "duplicate" items that are still "new in box" (it's been 2 years now)! Now that's a waste, isn't it? Of course there are some items yg kalau dpt banyak2 lagi bagus, like bedsheet and quilt cover sets (oh, I'll be having a queen-sized mattress with a king-sized quilt btw *hint hint*), cutlery, pinggan mangkuk, glasses, tea sets and so forth, but what would you do with 5 identical kettles right? It may sound a bit demanding to state whatever items that we want, but if you look it in a different way, it could prevent from "excess/unusable gifts", no? And it could actually benefit the giver as well bcoz at least the money spent is not wasted and he/she knows for sure that the item will be put on a good use. At least that's what I think.
So to my dearest beloved guests and friends, if you have no idea what to give for my wedding present, or you want to give something different bcoz you're afraid that somebody else would've given the same item(s), or whatever the reason is, lemme make it easy for ya. Just go to Molecule or XZQT stores at Pavilion (they're in front of Aussino btw) and pick any of the items there. OR, to make it even more easier, I've listed the items from both stores that I would really really reaaaally love to receive! Haha, do I sound demanding? ;p
1) Funky clock from XZQT
4) Pink "Love" mirror with hooks from Molecule
5) Stripey mop from Molecule (cute giler!)
6) Cleaning brush (which I think is for the toilet. Or it could be for the kitchen sink) that has a daisy at the back (I know! And it's apple green and purple in color!) from Molecule
7) Dazzling diamond ice cube tray from Molecule
...or anything from anywhere that's cute and quirky and modern-contemporary!
Unfortunately, there are no pictures for the items from Molecule.
Saya dahului dengan ucapan terima kasih ;p
p/s: I wonder if I would get a plasma TV, just like what my sister got...

It's been 3 days now and I can no longer tahan the pain. And I think I have a slight fever, and the left side of my head aches a little. I'm going to see the dentist today - yikes! *nail biting*
So I went to the dentist just now (dentists actually - the first one hampeh jer!) and it turns out there's an infection. The dentist gave me 2 types of antibiotic and if I still experience the pain in 3-4 days' time, those teeth should be extracted. I asked him whether it's possible to do the extraction right away bcoz if possible I wanna settle everything before my wedding (and I'm worried if the pain gets worse by then), but he said if that's the case I have to wait until my wedding events are over bcoz the surgery would take about 2-3 weeks to heal.
2 to 3 weeks?!
Has anyone experienced wisdom tooth removal/extraction surgery? Is it really that bad?

Let's see what we've been up to last week...
Monday: ribbon-tying for Nikah cards
Tuesday: ditto + choose songs for the event and montage
Wednesday: 2nd fitting at Kapas
Thursday: ribbon-tying for Reception cards
Saturday: ribbon-tying for VIP gifts + lekat stamps on envelopes and RSVP cards
Sunday: Meet designer to discuss my other wedding dress + shoes (custom made) + fitting for bridesmaid and flower girls - which is today.
Now, for the shoes... It's actually for the Reception and initially, I wanted to buy it myself bcoz I don't want to wear wedding shoes that usually comes with the baju (you know, pointy, with lace/manik/etc detailing) - it's a bit too common, doncha think? I don't want my baju + shoes to look too matchy-matchy so I told my mom and MZ that I would look for the shoes myself for all 3 events (including MZ's).
I've found one for Nikah, but I haven't found one for the Reception. You see, I will be wearing white for Nikah, so that's not a problem to find white shoes. As for the Reception, I'll be wearing mainly off-white and it's really hard to find off-white/cream-ish colored shoesss. There's either white, silver or gold - nothing in between! Now let's not forget that I only want a peep-toe, sling back and 4-5 inch heels. So the quest to finding the perfect shoe gets even tougher, and I nearly gave up.
So when we met the designer the other day to discuss bajus for my pengapit/pengiring/etc, he said he can make shoes as well. Just pick any designs that we want - be it Christian Louboutin, Manolo Blahnik, Gucci, Prada, etc etc - he will make exactly like that for a fraction of price! Of course I (and my sisters) agreed. We've picked our own designs - me, Louboutin, of course (God knows how deeply my heart is aching for the red-sole shoes!), Hanis chose err.. (what did you choose again?) and Wani chose Stuart Weitzman. I hope the shoes will be fab!
Okay I've gotta go now. Appointment's at 12 and I'm not ready yet!

It's a movie that I wanna watch at the moment. And guess what? It's about wedding! (or at least it's about a bridesmaid, but still...)

Alright, enough talking. Let's move on with the piccies.
The wedding cards for both events are finally here, and currently my mom and I are busy with ribbon-tying. There are about 1000 cards need to be tied up with ribbons, and the only kakitangan to help us with that is just my cousin - which makes only the 3 of us. I sure hope we would be able to finish everything before end of this month!
I really want to have a hard-and-thick-cover card from Indonesia for the reception, just like my sister's last year, but my dad has been so busy these past few months (he has to travel abroad for like every 2 weeks now), so we decided to order locally. We were running out of time; I think it was end of November last year and we still haven't found the right card-maker but luckily, while my parents were in Dubai to look for bekas utk VIP gifts, they met my dad's cousin's daughter-in-law whose sister happened to run a card business. I like her card designs bcoz they're simple and contemporary. She does have the hard-and-thick-cover card as well, but it costs a bomb! Seploh hengget satu card.. aiyark!
I love my Nikah card the most, bcoz I "somehow" designed it (cilok2 from the webbie, that is ;p). The Nikah card costs more than the Reception card tho! As for the Reception card, I requested for calla lilies design bcoz it's my favorite flower.
Anyway, here's something made from Kapas.
Cuba teka? ;p

Here goes... *deep breath*
Yours truly will be tying the knot with the love of her life... next month!
Well, some of you have probably heard about it though (news spread fast!), so yes, what you heard is true. I was actually planning to announce it exactly one month before the Big Day due to personal reasons, but since the news has already been spread, might as well I announce it now, huh? After all, it’s only like 10 more days to the actual announcing date.
Okay, what else now...
Ahh yes, the proposal. Heee... *blushing*
It’s nothing really out-of-the-ordinary kind of proposal, but it was sweet (at least for me, it is). It was on the 22nd of August 2007. We went out for a date at KLCC, and around 1ish he wanted to go to Mandarin Oriental Hotel, which is just beside KLCC. I assumed he wanted to go for Zohor prayer at the hotel’s surau like we always did, so I followed him without suspecting anything.
Everything seemed normal until we entered the hotel lobby. I realized that we were heading straight instead of left, so I said, “The lift is on the left... Where are we going?” He said, “Saya rasa macam nak mkn sedap2 la hari ni..” and before I could think of any replies, we were already in front of
While waiting for the dessert, he suddenly said “We’ve been together for 3 years..” I seriously thought he wanted to chat, so I interrupted him by saying, “A’ah.. Macam baru jer lagi kannn.. Tiba2 dah 3 tahun” And then all of a sudden, he became serious and looked straight into my eyes, and I was like oh-ohh.. and then he said, “We’ve been together for 3 years now, and I really want to spend the rest of my life with you. Will you marry me?”. Only then I noticed the small silver box with a ring inside.
I wasn't sure whether to dance or jump up and down or shout yay (I wish I could) but instead I laughed! Haha. I know, I should be crying or something bcoz that was supposed to be a touching moment. And you must be thinking I am not a sentimental person, but I laughed bcoz I was so happy and I have been waiting for that moment for agesss! Well, maybe I am not that sentimental. I think I’m more erm, playful than romantic ;p But anyway, I said, “OF COURSE I WANT!!”
Ooooh... I'm getting married, people!!! ;D
