it's never too early to plan

Everyone says, 'still soooo earlyyy'.. 'nevermind wann'.. or 'you have 1 year to plan'... 'take your time'..

it's never too early to plan.. if you have 1 year to plan, spread it out and do it share the planning and workload .. i think it's not so stressful that way, and besides, it'll avoid unneccesary arguments with your future husband. and most importantly, it teaches you how to work in a team!.. its not everyday you would work as a team with your husband/wife.

if you want to hold you wedding reception in one of those top 10 hotels in KL, you have to book em' fast, especially if your wedding date is on a HOT auspicious date.

BOOK everyone!! even your HOT high society friends. (in thai they call em 'hi so'/ lower society group 'low so')

I had to book Alvin, haha.. so he has blocked his calender for us. Thank you alvin. (hi-so) :P even my brothers & sister in law (hi-so), or friends from overseas, you need to tell them way in advance, and not 2 months before the wedding.

That reminds me, I haven't book a videographer & make-up artist! yikes!

Recently i saw a photo which will be wrong for me to put it up, the bride's face was like superduperwhite! Sometimes we see they look fine, until we see the photo. How strange, maybe when we buy our next foundation we should request for a 'non reflective' foundation. o_O (not sure if there's such thing, maybe i should invent that)




It's our photographer's calender for 2008 - 2010! (have you book yours yet?)

Look at the calender, i just realised there's no bookings for April. (April = 4) (4=Die) (something you don't learn in school)

So Moral of my story is..................








i dunno


I failed my moral

money isn't everything but everything is money

advertorial: Because Stephanie has been helpful to me, i told her i'll blog about her product. :)

Stephanie, someone i met from sells alluminium Just Married signs. The Just Married fonts are embossed, and the date and name is sticker i think.

She has 3 different designs to offer. RM108 for one.

i don't remember if this comes in blue.
Want to buy one? Call Stephanie @ 012-359 7752
There's other Just Married signs but its PVC. (from other ppl) Although they have many other designs, I personally prefer the alluminium.

getting married the lanna way

For my BLUR friends,

it's not gonna be in BANGKOK lah. It's gonna be on the 31st of October 2009. The next airasia promotion, rush to book our air tickets k?? Fly there on Friday 30th Oct 09, and wedding is held in my grandma's place, in Lamphun. (27km away from chiangmai) SO, Book your tickets to CHIANGMAI, Thailand! (Bangkok to Chiangmai is FAR - 696km)

The weather should be COOLING & NICE.

NO Blacks. the thais only take out their black dress out of their wardrobes if there is funeral to attend. In my hometown, if we see a group of ppl wearing black. its not like.. 'oh its the latest trend' but, who passed away? For guys Black pants okay lah.. Cause i don't think i can picture mervin in a white pants. o_O

Anyway, why 31st of October? Cause 2nd Nov is Loykrathong, a romantic thai festival. it will be nice to stay back for it and fly home 3rd of Nov.. its one of the festival not to be missed besides the FUN splashing Songkran in April (water festival)

I have 11 more months to blog about the thai ceremony.. :)

so ... END? ... oh no.. TO be Continue. ngek ngek ngek

a circle has no end so is our love

do we ever wonder which finger are we suppose to wear our engagement ring? wedding band?

the chinese saying is 'male is left, female is right' (yes, female always right wan) everything they do, palm reading .. actually i dunno what else except palm reading .. is male left and female right. so if you want to follow the chinese way, the male wear on the 4th finger of the wrong hand, i mean left. and female 4th finger on the RIGHT hand.

But if you want to be really romantic .. i suggest both male and female, wear it on the left hand. (we can't always be right you see..) it is said that the 4th finger of the left hand, contains the 'vein of the heart/love' so when we wear our rings is are close to our heart. (aaaaaaaaawwww, so romantic right?)

It is said the engagement ring and wedding band to wear it on the same finger. But its not easy to find two that fits nicely together, unless if you custom made that is if you have extra money to spend on. But then again, if you wear it on the same finger, you'll scratch both the rings! I just surf the internet, in the US, they have matching bands and engagement ring. I think its just M'sia lah.. so lousy. not many options.

some said u don't need to spend alot on your wedding band, some said you should spend alot on your wedding band because you'll be wearing it for life.

wedding bands are meant to be smooth, simple, no gaps, no holes, no nothing.. Because it is a symbol of our love with one another. A symbol of how our marriage is .. i heard from the sales assistant, some don't even want hollow rings. they want a solid ring. (some superstitious cliche la)

maybe after our wedding ceremony, we'll tattoo our 'rings' onto our finger.. o_O definitely, there will not be any holes, gaps, hollow, sharp edges.. its skin deep..

maybe a lil' wrinkle in 30 yrs time. ^_^

I wonder who invented tags. 10 yrs ago there's no such thing as tagtagtag.. oh maybe some outdoor game that requires us to run and tag each other. not sit in front of pc and tag each other... sighs. times have changed. Is our kids not going to enjoy the outdoors anymore? and be glued to their pc, nintendo, or god knows what is it gonna be called in 10 yrs time!

ANYWAY, you've been TAG!!!

MUAHAHAHA........... (i don't wanna grow up, i just wanna be a toy's r us kids!) (the power of jingles in the 90s)

a day to remember (part II)

Since mervin took leave, we decided to visit JPN in putrajaya, (precint 2). We had to bring along our passport size photo, photocopy i/c. (lucky for us - mervin has our passport size photo in his wallet for situation like this)

what's negar? or missing an 'A'? -_-

Open everyday, but cannot register on Thursdays (dunno why)
We pressed Button A - Straight away *ting* it was our turn!!!

The form is free, and you can't use the downloaded form, itu rujukan saje. :P

I don't remember the officer's name but he's got sense of humour. :P
i gave him a 'amat memuaskan' for their 'rate me campaign'.

Mervin: Encik minta satu lagi form.

(can i have another form)

The officer: Tapi boleh register satu kali saje tau!
(but you can only register once yknow!)

while waiting for the officer to do his thing, we snap some of our excited faces.

=^_^= o_O

~~~ ta da~~~

We arrived at 4pm, before 4.30pm it was all settled. So simple, fill in form, take number, pass officer form, i/c, photos, wait, print form.

*drum roll*

we're getting registered on the 2nd of January 2009!

a day to remember! (part1)

5th of Nov 08, was a day to remember. Mervin took leave and we went to Equatorial Bangi.

We discussed our menu with the Chef (who happens to cook yummy food and is really young!), we picked and chose the dishes according to our liking. We also finalised with Evonne the 'black & white' stuffs, and the most important thing, we PAID deposit to book the ballroom! SO 24th OCT 2009, its OURS! MUAHAHAHAHAHA.. :P

Evonne was EXTREMELY kind, and gave us 4 complimentary DIMSUM LUNCH BUFFET. (double yums), We were so EXCITED! and acted SO JAKUN (typical) HEE HEE. Irene (the waitress) , helped us ordered, and we managed to take some photos.. the first few dim sums went into our tummy so quickly, so no photos of that!! Oh so hungry thats why. hehe..

mervin loves the glass noodle, we pass it all to him.. :)

As of today, we official have a venue!

and 4 happy stomachs... Such a SATISFYING meal!

thank you evonne!

keep sharks in the ocean and out of the soup!

Every year 100+ million sharks die because of finning. Why? Because there's a demand for SHARK FIN SOUP. Do you know what they served in the hotel, its not all pure shark fin anyway? Just imagine how many sharks they have to kill just to serve 1000 hungry people attending your wedding? 1000 bowls of shark fin?

you do the math.

the make belief shark fin taste exactly like what the hotel serves, that's because, shark fin is probably tasteless, PURE/ MAKE BELIEF can you tell the difference?

Currently shark fin cost heaps to buy, if there's no demand for shark fin, it'll eventually be worthless!

In support of ASIAN Geographic Online Pledge Against Shark Fin Soup. Mervin and I have pledge ourselves #146 #149 and you can too, if you want to :)

Want to make a difference? Say NO to shark fin

(and to turtles too, they ARE just SO ADORABLE)

how can you eat me and my eggs?

Your kids have to google to see how a turtle and shark looks like if you don't stop eating me :(

So we've chose to say NO to shark fin soup! and no they are not gonna reduce the price.

We're going to have a better yummy dessert!
