Wedding: Guo Da Li 过大礼

Today is our Guo Da Li 过大礼, or the Chinese betrothal ceremony.
It is said to be a formal state of engagement to be married.

G and I went to a few shops to see the Guo Da Li items but in the end we got our stuff at Amanda Dreamweaver which located at Peoples Park Food Centre 2nd level.
The reason why we decided to buy from them is because they explained the traditions and customs to us and helped us to match the items.
We were to lazy to to match the items as we aren't sure what to buy and what's not.
I feel that their service is good just that their items are quite pricey.
Also, the custom to follow is more traditional, i.e: bedsheets has to be red, etc.
G had friends telling him that their custom are much more simpler.
But anyway, we re glad that this is over.
7 more days to the actual wedding.
Can't wait for this to end. Haha..

Our wedding cake from Swee Heng which I was not allowed to eat. :(

Painting Work

Over the weekend, I finally get my room cleared up a bit and repaint!
Been wanting to do it early but dreaded due to the cat and sis stuff around.
Since my sis is not moving out early, then I might as well just do it on my planned date.
Now I am sleeping on Queen Size Bed from G. :D
Due to marriage, we need new bed at his house, so his current one is moved to my side.
Now the room more neater and cleaner, though  there are still some stuff lying around. Haha..
I really have too much stuff and I tried to throw as much as I can but still many stuff. LOL.
My dad was surprised why I have so much stuff.
I told him that because I am his daughter because he also keeps many things. Wahaha..
Anything, this is the 2nd time that I am repainting my room. =D

In the end, I find the food there okay only.

Hen's Night & Staycation

The Hen's night held at York Hotel on 6 May 2017.
Stayed for a night but not all of my sisters stay over due to some other commitment.

That day, I touched down Singapore at about 6pm.
Then I rushed back home to prepare and was able to meet them at 8pm only.
I felt bad because it was my idea first but due to Biz Trip, I can only meet them late in the night.

The girls plan some surprises for me.
Really appreciate the plan and gift.

Getting Near

Wedding day is getting nearer.
Less than a month, counting down in days.
I wouldn't say that everything is done because it seems that many things not done.
I hope that everything will fall into place when time ripe.
*Pray hard* *Finger crossed*
Gonna be positive.

First Work Trip!

Hi, from London!
This was an impromptu work trip.
Gotten the approval on Thursday (27 April), then fly on Saturday (29 April).
Everything was a rush but luckily all went well.

It is my second day here today.
I wanted to blog yesterday but was too sleepy to do so.
Hence, I rested early yesterday.
Woke up early today to explore around the area myself.
I must say that this is really solo yolo.
I always longed for a solo trip and now I have no regret.
I will not pester my mum for any more solo trip.
Once is enough because I just wanted an experience. Haha~
Still, I can see that my mum is very worried.

Even though, I am miles away from home.
I still get do video calls with my family and G, just to make them not worried. Haha..
Surprisingly, Veron also called me earlier. :))
Gesture like this makes me feel that I am not lonely on this trip. :)

Not home sick yet but still long for home.
Counting down to 5 days! Cya~

Turning 30!

On this day, its another year of birthday and this time its the 30th.
Though I dread turning 30 but I got to say that this year is an awesome year for me!
New milestones in life~
Wedding, Graduation ceremony, hopefully to travel to a new country end of the year, etc..
Even though I am getting married this June, marriage life will start after we get our house key and live together which will be happening next year I guess.

As I am typing, I am reflecting back.
Looking back in my 20s, there were so many changes, up and down, mistakes that I've made, memories that I want to erase, etc.
It's the same for everyone just that each and everyone has their own different stories to write.
The 20s, an age that you dare to try to be different, do what you want and chase your dreams.
I always thought that I am always very conservative and introvert but I've dared to try to chase what I wanna be.
Even though I didn't succeed and I've failed, I can just say that I've tried.
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger right?
I know I became stronger.

The 30s, will be an age whereby people start settling down.
I don't dream big anymore but I still have goals.
I would say goals that are practical to meet.
For now, I will just be waiting for June to pass and I will not be so busy anymore.

Saw the this chinese quote online: "別被30歲嚇著,這個數字不過是另一段的成長,要你學會更擁抱自己,要你展開人生新的旅途,啟程吧,我的精彩30!"
It says "Don't be afraid of 30, this number is just another stage of life, it makes you embrace yourself more, it wants you to start a new journey in life, come on, my wonderful 30!"
I will face it positively.
Come on!

Goodbye 20s.
(Age 21-29, Year 2008-2016)

Feeling really sleepy now at 10pm on a Friday night!
How can that be?!
I usually slept past 12 midnight on a Friday night but today I really cannot keep my eyes open anymore.

Totally drained.
Been working extra hours for this week and I believe the coming week as well.
Getting busy due to system change and I have to rush all the orders to close.
But still, new orders keep coming in.. WTH..

Work aside, its about 7 weeks more to the big day.
Preparation almost done, just bits and pieces there.
The most important thing that is stuck is to clear the house and my room!
Sick of this issue.
Anyway, it gonna be a last minute thing to clear and do the painting.
Will get over it!
Just another rush..

I guess I'll just go sleep early tonight.
Looking forward to my birthday weekend! :D
Good night. <3

Wedding: Pre-wedding Photoshoot Experience

Our pre-wedding photoshoot took place on 3 October 2016, just a day after my dissertation submission.
It's a great timing that I selected, whereby all my worry temporary throw behind me and focus on photoshoot.
It was a Monday, so both of us took a day off from work.
Advised by my French Wedding coordinator, Joanne, that selecting a weekdays is better because it will not be crowded and no one photobombing you.

So we went to the boutique as early as about 9am.
The makeup and hair done for me and G took about 2hrs and then we started our indoor studio shoots.
I had 3 gowns for indoor shoots, so the MUA gave me 3 different looks/ styles.
We finished our indoor shoots at around 2-3pm then we prepared to go outdoor.

Before these, G and I had a hard time thinking of which outdoor venue to shoot.
I didn't want places that look like Singapore, hence places like MBS, Garden By the Bay are out.
Finally, we concluded that to shoot at Victoria Concert Hall and Botanic Garden.
The area at Botanic Garden might be somewhere not many has known of.

So anyway, our outdoor shoot took about 3hrs at two places.
I felt lucky that I had toilet to change into the second gown.
I didn't find somewhere whereby I need to use tent to change.
If not, I will be so uncomfortable and insecure. Haha..

Overall, I feel that the photoshoot went well.
Even though, I feel quite awkward with G on some pose. Haha..
The photographer is also very patience with us.

It was a big headache when comes to selecting photos.
There were a total of 182 photos taken and we have only 38 photos to select.
In the end, we bought extra 4 photos.
So in total, we have selected 42 photos and we've also collected our photo albums.
Happy with the outcome. :)

I will share our Pre-Wedding Photos after 3 months.
Here's a picture of our album cover.

Wedding: Food Tastiing at Novotel Clarke Quay & Parents Meeting

Last Friday night, 10 March 2017, we had our food tasting at Novotel Clarke Quay.
It was also the day whereby two side of the parents first meet up.
Lucky, it wasn't too awkward and the night went well too.

As for the food, I hope the guest will enjoy it.
I am not someone who can tells whether the food is very good or not very good.
Different people has different liking too.

Counting down to less than 3 months.
I am getting nervous....

Wedding: Wedding Cards

It's already March! Left 3 months and 1 week to go..
Its scary when you feels that the days are getting nearer.

I am going to talk about the wedding cards.
T Dragon Cards is Novotel's wedding card supplier.
Last month, G and I headed down to T Dragon which located at AMK to select our wedding cards.

It is a small office space and lucky for us, it wasn't crowded then.
We looked for a table to settle down and one of the lady handed us a file containing many different wedding invitation card designs.
All the cards we saw wasn't very impressive so we really had a hard time choosing.
G then saw one customer collected his wedding card and it was like love at first sight for him.

Ended up, we got that design that he saw but we need to top up for the design.
Initially, I guess no one really care about the card because mostly people just take and throw.
But I still go along with it because the price difference isn't really that much.

2 weeks ago, we gotten the printed card and was very happy with the wedding card.
We decide to keep 1 for ourselves for memory because it is really pretty.

Today, because I met Tommy for dinner so I gaave out my first red bomb to him. :D
He was all ready to accept it. Haha..
Soon, I will slowly give out the invites.

So is it. ^^

Hello Future Home!

G and I have been wanting to cycle over to our future home to see the progression.
But many times when we planned, the weather was bad.
Finally, we went there today because the weather was good and not raining.
Was excited and happy to see that everything is all done up - Painting, window installed, etc.
Seeing this progression, most probably, we will be able to get our keys last quarter of this year or first quarter of next year.
Shall let u guess which unit I am taking.

Sidetrack a little, I haven been cycling or exercising for many months.
My stamina is getting worst.
Last time, cycling 15km was not a big problem but this time I felt like dying.
Maybe, just maybe I didn't eat much for lunch. Haha..

Ok, I hope for good news on our house soon. :)

Valentine's Day 2017

Happy Valentine's Day!

I was unhappy with G yesterday morning because we didn't even make plan for today Valentine's dinner.
When I was messaging him, he sound like 不耐烦 even though he said its the way he talks but I dislike the way he reply - "yaya".
Anyway, I kept telling him that I don't want to meet anymore.
Moreover, the dining places will be fully booked as well.
Hence, we dropped the idea of celebrating today.

At 12 midnight, he messaged me.
He was at my house with a bouquet of flowers.
Haha.. so me being girl.. seeing the flower and the effort.. I didn't feel unhappy anymore..
算他有还有良心。 哈哈哈!
So he told me that it will be our last Valentine's as girlfriend and boyfriend.
And I tells him that my expectation will be higher when he becomes my husband. Wahaha~
I am so demanding. :p

Wedding: Gown Fitting for Pre-Wedding Photoshoot

I am going write on what was my experience for Pre-wedding photography.

First and foremost, G and I bought the package at BOWS November last year.
I was quite reluctant that time because he didn't even proposed yet.
Initially, we just wanted to look around but was then "kena psycho" by the cheap package that was offered by French Wedding.
For your info, French Wedding was the first merchant that we stepped into.
We didn't even get to see the other merchants, but we ended up signing up for their package.
I guessed we were easily convinced back then.

From the period of signing up in November last year till my appointment with them on the gown selection, I was actually worried, and also felt that we bought the package impulsively.
I feel that we should check out those shops in JB, because it is cheaper.
Moreover, their shooting location is not Singapore.
I kept telling G that I don't want to shoot at location whereby people knows its Singapore. LOL!

What worries me was that when I want to do research online on French Wedding, there isn't much info on their studio, gowns, etc.
Not only that, I even saw bad review on them that was dated years ago.
The only plus point is that the package SEEMS cheaper than the other merchants that offered in Singapore.

Anyway, since there isn't much review on French Wedding, so I gonna write my part here.
However, different people will have different encounter with them, so this is based on my experience with French Wedding.

I had my first gown selection and fitting on 24 September 2016 for Pre-wedding photoshoot.
Joanne was my main coordinator.
And there's another lady called Lily who helped me with the gown fitting.
She is a nice and helpful lady and we clicked really well.
They have a wide range of gown selection and I really enjoy the process though it was tiring (Mentally and Physically).
Many gowns that I wore was really beautiful but I can only limit to 5 gowns. :(
Here are some gowns that I tried and I am not telling you which one that I choose.
Will release all after I am married. LOL!

Actually, I really enjoy trying different gowns because I feel like a princess or barbie doll. Haha..
It is really unusual of me to use "princess" this word because I am not that girly girl who will appreciate princess stuff.
Anyway, I just love seeing myself wearing different gowns. Haha..

I think we took about 5hrs to select all the 5 gowns and suits for G.
Really a dilemma to choose the gowns.
Anyway, it was over.
Gown fitting went really well.

I will be back to tell you about my Pre-wedding photoshoot experience in another posts.
Till then..

Wedding: Wedding Bands

We gotten our wedding bands on 13 August 2016!
The process of looking for the right ring took us about 3 months.

At first, my thought was to get matching wedding bands (design) because I feel that its more symbolic and meaningful.
However, G and I have different liking hence we decided to get different designs.
Anyway, I guess the purpose of wearing a wedding band is to show that one is married so its okay to not having the same design.
I considered that I have to like the ring, feels comfortable in it as I need to wear it everyday.
Friends told me that it is okay not to have the same design too.

Before getting the right one, we searched and tried out many brands - Lee Hwa, SK Jewellery, Michael Trio, etc.
The below 2 are from Lee Hwa.

Finally, we settled on Michael Trio because it can custom made as well as they have a wide varieties of designs.

For G, he selected a design that look like Bvlagri wedding band.
The ring looks thick to me which I dislike.
I prefer ring that is thinner.
Here's the 3 designs that I shortisted.

Guess which is my final decision?

We paid our first deposit on April and was told that we can collect at the end of May.
On May, when we saw our ring, I diamond wasn't fill half the ring and I think it was also loose for my finger.
In the end, we ask them to redo which explain why I got the rings on August.

Overall, I was happy with the service that Michael Trio provided us.
The sales guy is very patience with us.
I feel that it is very important because as a couple, we want to look for the best and suitable wedding bands for ourselves.
We will request to see many many ring designs until we find the ring one.
The sales guy is not only patience with us, he also help to give advise when we need it.

So you ready to see our wedding bands? :)
