Lovely Wedding with a Lovely Bride

Had been some time since I last attended a wedding.. (the last was Ann’s)

Somehow, Ms K’s wedding brought back many wonderful memories for me – just like how they say attending weddings always make you reminisce about your own – I feel it totally! All the way from the march-in – the song “From This Moment” – ok, we didn’t use this, but it was part of the wedding songs compilation we had – to the videos, cake-cutting, champagne pouring, yum seng, speech, etc etc.. all this seemed to have happened just only yesterday for us! It just brought back so many fond memories that I (literally) couldn’t stop grinning.. hahaha (Lily would know)

And the bride was gorgeous!!! We used to say she shouldn’t diet so much but on retrospective, maybe it was all worth it (haha, from vain gals’ point-of-view). Anyhow, now that the wedding’s over, Ms K you should ‘let go’ and let’s go pig out together OK! Hehehe..

I wish I had a photo of her to post but we were just so mesmerised by her beauty that I forgot to take a picture of her.. hahaha..

On a separate note..

Hubby msged me during the wedding to inform me of the gals’ ‘wrongdoing’ – check out the chaos below man! Just as the earthquake was wrecking havoc in Japan (which incidentally is a place I love =( ), the gals were wrecking havoc @ home in the balcony.. tsk tsk!!! Had instructed them numerous times before not to mess with Ding & Pu’s grave but they.. .. ^^&*())(&^%$##@

O.M.G. The only good thing was that they didn’t managed to dig Ding (closer to the top of the pot) up. *Gulp* The gals were given a stern talking-to by Hubby.. haa.

An update on the herb growing kits given to me by Lily & Debi after their HK & Japan trips – growing mighty well, esp. the Basil, hee.. *very pleased* Somehow, I’ve not used them in cooking but the gals have been given their dose of basil & mint salad once in a while.. kekeke. Ka likes both but Cotton only likes the Basil.. =)

Lack of Updates here (blame the teevee)

Yep, the teevee (& also drama serials) must be the most one kind invention of all time, with evil intentions to command our utmost attention & render all our intended work undone. You are bad!

As a consequence of being an extremely innocent victim to this purpose, my dear fren came to me today & asked if I am still watching Korean dramas, ‘coz the blog seems neglected.. oopsy! Yep I know.. the blog has nv been left on its own for no good reason, the last being the honeymoon =P

Well well, actually I could just go on & on about all the updates! Following the wedding & honeymoon, we need to develop photos for ppl/ treat some ppl/ blog on everything/ do up the honeymoon photobook (wedding-related tasks) & nurture my plants/ play wif the darlings/ finalise configuration of new home/ plan for housewarming/ prepare for CNY (house-related tasks).. the list seems endless! Then of ‘coz the time is scarce ‘coz I am not taitai mah.. sob sob. So everyday only can do 一点点.. keke.

And yep, we’ve collected the video (sans express highlights – hey wea is it?), as well as photo album from Wu. While it was with total regret that we choose that company for our video, luckily the pics from Wu turned up really nice! Candid as I like, & he’s a really nice person =D

I thought you may also like to know that I bought 2 new cushion covers at 50% discount from C.A.M @ Robinsons today again =P They’re in my evening gown colours – I heart! I am totally addicted to C.A.M.. can browse there for hours (err.. ‘tho the section is actually v small.. hahaha!)

They made cushion covers with my gown

Oh ya, & I am also growing chilli @ the balcony now! May they grow up healthily wif the help of the Home Fix organic fertilizer that I bought yester. Haha!

Kiasu me sowed way toooo many seeds.

AD – Gatecrashing

Oh dear, I found my progress wif the blogging on the AD impeded by some (Korean) distractions, & it’s really difficult to step out! Addictions, addictions and how potent they are =P

But today’s a surprisingly nice short working day & I must grab the opportunity to blog on one of my fav segments of the wedding – the Gatecrashing! Here goes =D

Arrival of the convoy, early as promised =)

Small Kenneth opens the door for big Kenneth =)

My “阵容强大”的姐妹团, led by Theng. Haha!

Task #1: Wearing of Tiara. Difficulty rating = 1/5

Task #2: Which is your fav day from Mon to Sun = determines your choice of stylish moustache of the day.. haha. From the looks of it, difficulty rating shld be 3/5 ‘coz everyone kept fiddling with it all the time!

Adjusting the moustache..

I ain’t liking Yuan’s ‘hum sup lo’ image.. haha.

Nel’s ‘Sat’ moustache suited him ‘tho! Hehe!

Along the way, Jerome also had to put on ‘long-lasting’ lip gloss. Poor guy..

Bali checks out the first angpao of the day

Not too pleased (wif the angpao), the guys are given their next task (actually pleased also like that =P). Task #2: To write a poem starting wif the letters of my name. Difficulty level (i.e. judging from what I watched from the video) = 5/5. *Shake head*

After watching the video, I realised Yuan did not come up with a single word, let alone poem! *growl* All he did was turn to his bros for the answers!!! >_<

Task #3: Yuan to dance with his signature moves to 3 songs, bros to accompany. Difficulty level = 3.5/5. Photog didn’t take any pics of this, prolly ‘coz Yuan danced in quick bursts? Haha.

2nd angpao = bogus check which was promptly thrown out by the 姐妹s. They ain’t letting you in w/o cold, hard cash lor!

That’s better..

Ok ok, finally on the way in, after choosing the right key =P

Shagged out even before Task #4! Haha. It’s very simple actually – to manage to extract some hairs using the plasters (difficulty level = 1/5)! So benevolent hor =D

Haha.

Task #5.. finally! Not very difficult la, just eating some bittergourd & wasabi only =P Difficulty level = 3.5/5.

Wah! Found Cocky so soon! =D Yuan looks happy to see Cocky.

Are those tears that I see in your eyes?

Red-faced Nel

姐妹s laughing very happily.. hee.

And also are rather pleased wif the final angpao

Finally can come in liao!

Lovely end to the Gatecrashing segment =)

AD – Morning Preps

Shall blog ‘thru pics for this! Read on.. =D

– – – – – – – – –

I only managed to zzz at 12 plus the night before! Xian. & that was after I barely managed to scribble something coherent on a piece of paper for the speech, at 11 plus.. *stressed*

You see my make-up artist above (Mico; the one on the left). I woke up at 3.15am, becoz she said they will arrive at 4pm >_< In the end, they only arrived at 4.30pm.. bleah. And my bed wasn’t so messy before they came! =)

Make-up done. I like this shot alot becoz my features look symmetrical – normally my right eye looks slightly smaller I think! 😉

Err.. hairdo is taking shape. How do I tell her that I didn’t like the braids so much after all? I didn’t..

My bridal gown! Love the feathery shoulder.

My wedding shoes! Love the crystal ribbons.

Donning the bridal jewellery from Yuan..

All ready! But what’s with this coy shot? Haha..

The arrival of my lovely 姐妹s – Theng was the earliest, at 6am sharp! =D Lots of discussion & recap on how to ‘zheng’ Yuan & his bros =P

Prep time. Haha.. this is the stylish moustache collection from River Island. Stylish indeed! =D

“I LOVE YOU” plasters made by Theng & Ann in place of wax strips.. we’re soooo lenient leh!

Muisee, Bali & Angie made this poem board v pretty.. pity I didn’t get to keep it. =/

‘Yummy’ & pretty breakfast prepared by Tao & Elly. Thanks Elly for preparing all the ingredients, Huikoon for the coffee (Yuan said it’s v nice leh!) & the 姐妹s for eating Big Breakfast to get the boxes! Haha!

This is the 盖头纱 part, shortly before Yuan arrives. Thereafter I’m not supposed to lift the veil up until he does =D

Have come to the end of Part I. Stay tuned for Part II on the gatecrashing games!!! Hee.

Happy 2010!

First of all, here’s wishing all our dear frens a very HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2010 has come too soon eh (or rather, the holidays have ended too soon -_-“)

Yuan & I were speculating that 99% of the working population must be experiencing Monday blues today – except for the siao 1% who cannot wait to return to work.. kekeke. And it doesn’t help that the weather was so good/ cool this morning! Sob. Pupu & Dingding are such lucky fellas =)
