Once in a life time experience!

It's been a while.... since i even view this blog!

I have done 2 very exciting things recently.

I never thought I would be doing it.

But I have done it.

Firstly, never did I ever thought that I will be taking my pre-wedding photos in paris!! We actually wanted to go to Japan at first! But because of the tsunami and the nuclear situation, and then one thing lead to another and before we know it, we have booked ourself a pre-wedding package to Paris! Thanks to my dearest honeydrew, I get to experience this once in a life time experience!! =D

Here are some shots taken by honeydrew when the photographer ask him to "tan hoi" hahahahaha so poor thing... he didn't take any single shots! All the photos are either both of us or just me! Cause the photographer say groom got nothing to shoot but the bride got a pretty gown! haha.... All these taken with my normal digital camera!

This is the 4th time that I am in Paris but I have never seen Paris this beautiful! I guess I am always still sleeping at that hour!

Both of us really enjoyed the photoshoot and we had a really great time!

I can't wait to see the photos from the photographer!!

The other very very exiting thing I did was that after soooooo many many many years of contemplation, I have finally decided to get my first chanel bag! And this is the 1st bag that I have bought for myself and also the most-est most expensive bag that I have own! All my other bags are bought by my dearest honeydrew!!

I call this once in a life time experience is because I don't think I will ever buy such an expensive bag anymore.... of course unless if someone wanna buy for me la! muahahahahahaha

yes it is a beauty! i love it very very much!

Even though it is so expensive, I don't really have to take care of it much cause the leather won't scratch! Unlike the LV bags where the patina leather cannot touch water la, hand cream la or it will stain / get dark very fast.... so need to jaga jaga one....

Plus, this chanel bag can be worn for formal or casual!

My only complain is that it is too small cause I am used to big bags where I can put lotsa stuff in it! But i'm still very happy with it!

The house where I will soon call it my home...

I am really excited to change this empty house into a home, our home ;) But I am so indecisive and blur at the same time!! Have been browsing soooo much ID websites lately....

The first thing that we are looking at is the kitchen layout. That's because we want to extend our kitchen and before we can start on the wet works, we need to know what our layout is so that the wet works contractors know where to put our windows, pipe for sinks, opening for hoods, electrical points for all the appliances! Once that is confirmed then they can start with the wet works and I will have to know what hood, hob, built in oven and refrigerator that I am getting cause the kitchen cabinet guys will need to ensure that the cabinets and table top can fit all these items perfectly!

I have went to more than 10 different kitchen cabinets companies to give me a rough quote and the price ranges from RM18 - 30k!! such a huge difference!! Then out of those I have asked about 6 to design for me but I feel that none of the designs are what I wanted!! :( Hence I have decided to design it myself!!!!! But I'm not sure if I have thought through thorough enough to say that my design is functional, ergonomical, and stylish enough for me! Haha! Even I cannot please myself, how would other designers be able to? That is why I said I am so indecisive and blur at the same time!!

Luckily we know that we want black glossy kitchen cabinets with white table top.... but should all our cabinets be black or should we mix in a bit of white?

I just want a kitchen that I would love to be in to cook and bake where everything is convenient and user friendly :D Is that so difficult?? haha

Besides the layout, I have also no idea what brand of hood, hob and oven to get! There are soooo many various brands and models!! Does it really matter?? Does it really make any difference?? Will my kitchen be oily and stuffy cause I choose the wrong hood? Will my cooking be not nice cause I choose the wrong hob and my cakes will not turn out nicely cause I choose the wrong oven?? Haiiihhhhh.... dunno la.... fahn sei.... haha!! But money is also the constraints la.... I definitely won't be able to afford the best brand even if I know which brand is that!! ahahaha

how la......

Another thing to fahn is I want my bridesmaids to be in a hot pink dress but then why is it sooooo difficult to find?? I always see it last time when I'm not looking... but now... can't find any nice ones!!! My sis said its not the colour this season!! BOOOOO!!!

Every weekend

Every weekend is just about doing stuff for wedding / house....
So many decisions to make
So much money need to be spent

I am glad to say that I have at least confirmed my venue, actual day and pre wedding photographer, bridal house, wedding favour and will be soon confirming wedding deco and hopefully make up artist and wedding cake vendor as well...

Here is my first make up trial ;) I kinda like it but both my mimi and HD said that my eyes are too dark!! My sis said my eyelash looks weird! Haha! The hairstyle is done by myself as I have not decided what hairstyle to do since my fitting will only be in July!

I am still looking for videographer, wedding card printer, wine supplier, and of course the most headache of all the guest list!! Oh and also bridesmaids dresses! My own dress also not confirmed yet! But I have bought my wedding shoes already! haha

We have also gotten keys for our new house =D Am so excited bout that.....
For the house we have done nothing so far!! Only gotten 2 quotations for kitchen cabinets and 1 quotation for renovation works! So so so so much more to do!!

Am also afraid that with so many decisions need to be made, there are bound to be differences in opinions which will lead to arguments / fights! So far no major arguments YET but somehow, I can see it happening sooner or later =P BOO!! =(

We both also decided to go for a pre marriage course highly recommended by 2 of my friends! It's a 6 sessions course and I really hope that we will gain from it.... but at the same time am afraid of all the differences that we'll found out about each other from the course! However, I still believe that talking bout it is better than not talk about it! That is why I am really keen to go for this course even though its organized by church but am assured that the course is not about christianity but communication between a couple! This will take up my weekends time as well!

Busy busy busy!!!
so many things to do
so little time & $$$$$ haha

I actually wanted to come here to add some new links to some of the blogs I wanna follow but thought that I would update my abandon blog! haha cause if I do read back this blog in the future, these are 2 important thing that have happened to me recently in 2011

Firstly, I just turned three zero!! OMG so old!!

But this year, my birthday was celebrated with all my family and friends =D I have not had a party for a long time and hence I throw myself a bday party! muahahahaha and because I do not want to think that I am leaving twenty something behind, I have choosen a cartoon theme BBQ party! I actually have games planned as well but my friends didn't wanna layan me.... but all in all i had a great time!! Although it was quite kelam kabut in the beginning I wasn't even ready when the first guest arrive!! end up I didn't even shower and just change only!! haha

This is supposed to be a group photo of everyone but half of the people were blocked!!
Also, half of my friends are not sporting at all!! They did not follow the theme!!! but of course some of them were really great in minnie mouse(s), mickey mouse, superman & superwoman, batman family, strawberry shortcake, popeye & olive and power puff girl

The second very important thing in my life is that..... I'm engaged!!!
This year will be our 6th years of being together and of that 6 years almost 4 years we were in a LDR. Finally we will be getting married next year!! It's a really huge step. I didn't think I will feel as ready as I am now. Before this, I couldn't imagine myself being married or want to get married. But somehow now, I do. Even though I am scared in taking this step, scared because of all our differences but at the same time I am also very excited and looking forward to live our life together as husband and wife...

This is proposal no.2 cause I complained that the 1st one was not romantic! MUAHAHAHAHA
I just love my honeydrew =D Sometimes he will do stupid things because of me =D

And this is my engagement ring =D
I love it very very much!! Though I wouldn't mind an even bigger carat!! (actually who would mind leh!!!) MUAHAHAHAHAHA I am so greedy!!! But I am really very satisfied with it =D It's one of the very very few things that he bought himself that I like =D Yes, I am evil and fussy like that!! That's why I always like to choose my own presents =P Hence I am really glad he have chosen something I like for this very significant "present"

So yes, now most of my time are spent on wedding related stuff!! So much to do but I love every bit of the planning!! Just don't like how much everything costs!! Wedding business is a really good business to be in!! All the quotations I've gotten really gave me a shock!! Everything are marked up super high and still people are willing to pay for it because.... it's once in a lifetime ma....... the super overused phrase in anything related to wedding!! sigh.....

Oh, and besides all these wedding, I have a sudden urge to take up a part time baking class!! The only reason I am not doing it now is because I wanna lose weight and how to lose weight if you keep baking 3 times a week? (That is the frequency of the baking class) Maybe I will only do it when I have my own kitchen =D

Really really have the urge to bake something....... maybe I should.... hhhmmm....
