Yes, We Are Married!

안녕하세요

Have been missing for few months because of busy preparing for my big day. Wedding preparation is seriously crazy. Is so tiring but of course is a fun day too. Celebrating our big day with our beloved family and very close friend.

25th November 2017, there is where I begin my new journey, have my own new family. To be a good wife. 02nd October 2006, is where we started our love story. We have gone through a lot of things. Happiness and sadness. Of course, nothing is perfect, we both have our own weaknesses but the most important is we learn to compromise, learn to communicate with each other and we learn to be open to each other. There is still a lot of things to learn, so we both are constantly learning.

We did not have a very huge and grand wedding ceremony and dinner, but we have a very warm and full of love ceremony and dinner. 27 tables that consist of both side family and very very close friends. We really appreciate all of them taking their precious time off to celebrate our big day.

Of course, the day will not be smooth and success without our videographer, Gary & Alvin from Armadale Weddings. Our photographer Hanz from Omelette and our driver of the day Khoo from Rent a VW Kombi or Bettle in Malaysia. I can’t wait to see our video and also our photos capture on the day. As for our driver Khoo, we both seriously appreciate your patient and time. Never rush us while we took photo with the lovely car.

Hanz has posted some photos on his Facebook page. Hope to see more soon.

A Week Off From The Insincere World

안녕하세요

We have taken a week off from work to relax and to get away from the competitive world. The world where you face a lot of insincere people. While on leave, my dear fiancé faces some unhappy things but of course, life moves on and we let karma handle the rest. We tell ourself to enjoy every single moment we are together and appreciate every single day we have.

We went to PD Waterfront to have a walk and is a relaxing walk. Get to breathe the natural air and enjoy the clean wind blowing. Nature is always the best.

Then we went to Melaka to visit my uncle with my family. In the same time, one of the reasons we went to Melaka is to also purchase items for our wedding day. Chinese culture has a lot of rules and regulations. We take this opportunity to purchase some decorations items too.

Since we are there, we also drop by the famous Jonker Street Night Market. Of course, the crowd is crazy because is a long public holiday for Malaysian. So everybody is squeezing each other while walking. We manage to buy some local food and drinks there. A lot of store selling the same thing but each store has their own speciality. I think is because the place has become a tourist area, the food is expensive as well. We bought spend RM10.00 for one stick of sausage and one stick of scallop and RM18.00 for the large mango drinks. The sausage is good but the scallop my fiance say is not so delicious. Guess is because it has been left there for a while and the food is cold.

The mango drink is alright but of course, we requested not to put sugar water so end up is more natural mango taste and not to say very sweet. Just nice.

After the Melaka trip, we rush back to KL because we have to attend our college best friends wedding ceremony at the temple. We are very glad to be invited to attend their ceremony because is an eye opener for both of us. Different culture different style of praying ceremony.

At the morning we went to Sri Maha Mariamman Temple as both of them is having the praying ceremony there. The setting up is so cheerful and colourful. Thereafter, the night was buffet style dinner for their relatives. 11 years of friendship. Friendship never end.

I learning the Path To Peace. Today the path to peace says that Nothing Is More Virtuous Than Compassion, Sweeter Than Serenity, Purer Than Truth”. 

We just have to appreciate and love our family members and friends sincerely, the positive energy will always be with you. Tomorrow I will have to go back to the negative world, but I just have to maintain the positive mindset to eliminate the negative energy.

My Pre-Wedding Photo Shooting (#Throwback)

안녕하세요 (#throwbackblog)

I just completed my pre-wedding photography last Wednesday. Is a tiring but also a fun day. One day before the photo shooting, while waiting for my fiance to finish work, I drop by Centrepoint. We were supposed to drop by the Bridal house to collect the gown and suit for next day photo shooting. I passed by the florist shop and I thought I can just buy one bouquet for my photo shooting as one of the props.

I don’t know how to buy a bouquet actually. So from the brochure, I have chosen the daisy. I love daisy. However, because I have chosen a cheaper price bouquet is quite small. The bouquet cost RM55.00. Guess I need to study the market price before ordering. Is a bit small but still can use.

My Daisy

 

We have cute and funny experience during the photo shooting. As we have been together for about 10 years, so we are not used to being a sweet couple with some sweet actions and poses. 😂 When we were told to look at each other eyes, we feel awkward and we will continue laughing nonstop. Photographer and videographer have to guide us step by step in terms of posing and the feelings of each other.

So, we went to 3 places to do the photo shooting. The first place is at FRIM Kepong Botanic Garden. First time there of course and I am in love with the environment. I guess a lot of couples shoot there because they even have “Pas Pengantin” which is Bridal Pass.

Bridal Pass

 

To enter we have to pay RM112.35. I am not too sure the price we paid is for two cars to enter or only one car because our photographer did not pay for the entry. So I assume the price we have paid is for two cars. Please remember to get the receipt and if the counter

Here I will want to remind you all to always remember to get the receipt and if the counter person in charge has told you that is alright, they will send later please insists on waiting till you received the receipt because you will not be able to enter the garden without the receipt. Our photographer will have to drive back to the registration counter to collect the receipt. Is quite a distance actually. Is very bad for the counter person in charge to do that.

We were lucky that the small hiccups did not ruin our day. When we arrived, the sky and environment are nice even though is very hot and I have to face the sun directly. My fiance took the opportunity to captures some photo of me posing alone. I am not used to it because I don’t really like to take a photo of myself. So I have difficulty in posing and smiling in front of camera (=.=)”

Enjoying The Lake View

 

The second photo shooting place is Putrajaya, Taman Saujana Hijau. That park is a public park. So that is why you see a few couples taking the pre-wedding photo. We were rushing for time, that is why we did not take a picture when we were there with our own camera. Have to wait for the photographer final outcome to see how it looks like.

The last location for our pre-wedding shooting was at LIMA PULO. Is a well known Baba Nyonya cuisine restaurant. The restaurant is always crowded. We went there the first time and we did not manage to try out their food because the restaurant is full and the last order is at 2.45pm. This time round we thought we can have lunch there as we have booked the venue from 3.00pm – 5.00pm for photo shooting. As we are running late, we only manage to reached the restaurant at 3.00pm. So we did not manage to try out their food again. The owner is so kind and friendly. Hope we can see him again next round when we have lunch or dinner there cause did not manage to really have a chat with him.

I need to wait for a few months to see the outcome. Can’t wait to see those photo.
