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



花对我说还是蛮有用的。因为我是女人嘛~~

今天是宅女!

啊。。。好久没有宅在家里一整天追剧了!
就是今天追了一整天的剧。
前几天看完了韩剧,今天开始了一部中国剧 - 微微一笑很倾城。
一看就看了十集!
很吸引我一直追下去!
哈哈,我就是这么夸张。
这样就花了我大概十个小时的一天。呵呵~

其实我看过微微一笑很倾城的电影。
是Angelababy和井柏然演的。
蛮喜欢它的剧情。
描述了一对大学风云人物因为游戏中相认相知相恋的爱情故事。

之前看见有人在Facebook post了电视剧的一部分。
就吸引我去查了查这部戏。
而这部电视剧共有三十集。
演员是郑爽和杨洋,也是帅哥美女。
电视剧和电影的故事差不多一样。
只是电视剧的故事可能比较详细。

好了,不说了!
再去看多一集我就得去睡了。
明天又是新的一个星期。
工作又得加油了!
掰掰~

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? :)

2017大年初一初二初三

Hello to the Rooster year.
This year, we had a long weekend - Saturday to Monday off!
How's your CNY this year? Mine was fine.
Surprisingly this year, I didn't dye a new hair color and also didn't go for manicure.
Just wanna save some money. :p

大年初一
First day of CNY will be the usual house visiting.
This year, many people told us that it will be our last year receiving ang pows.
Haha.. I get it.

Anyway, the usual will be to visit his family side then at my side.
This year, he started his visiting late while mine was earlier than the previous year.
Usually, we go house visiting about 7pm but this year we started at 5pm.



#MOTD. Bad hair day because I had a hard time curling it. Sigh~

Our #OOTD

And I love the design at the back. #sexyback LOL!


This is my great grandma who is 93 years old this year.
A photo of the 1st generation and the 5th generation.
Worth the keep for memory. :)


Of cos, my nephew need to have a pic with me.
Can't resist his fat cheek. Haha..
Anyway, this is his first CNY.

So we went to great grandma house, then to grandma house and then to my Auntie house whereby my paternal side grandma stayed in.

初二
No visiting this year on the 2nd day.
Usually, we will go to his auntie's house but this year we didnt.
So we only went out for movie.
Watched The Fortune Handbook 财神爷.

Day 2 #OOTD

初三
Went visiting at his another auntie house.
Nothing much to do there so just play with G's niece.
This girl still feel shy when she sees me always.
Shy but still okay to play with me. Haha..



Hope you had a great rest and enjoyed the past three days too.
Happy Chinese New Year again! :)

迎接鸡年!

Its the CNY eve!
Sending off the Monkey and welcoming the Rooster in about half an hour time!

This year I feel that the 气氛 is not really there.
Anyway, still is very rare to eat together and reunion dinner is always a special today to gather.



Our steamboat reunion dinner every year.
This year is a little different because I helped out more in the kitchen.
I have never cut a big piece of pork and chicken in my entire life until yesterday night. LOL!
And the chicken are so oily than the pork. How can that be? LOL!
Anyway, my job took about 2 hours to complete.
Seem so tedious.
Well, I am learning and I know practice make perfect.
I will try harder next time since I am going to be someone's wife soon. Hahaha..

Shall update more on the CNY the next post.
Now, I wish you a Happy CNY!

I'm Graduated!

This gonna be the FIRST best news of my 2017!

Last Friday, my classmates and I got a late email from our Program Executive that we can collect our result.
Because it was a very late email like about 7pm, all of us wouldn't able to get our late.
So today, I decided to go retrieve my result during lunch time.
One reason is because I was eager to know my result, the other reason is because I have an appointment at night.
Coincidentally, Jean and Charmaine were also taking their result during lunch hours, so I met up with them.

To be honest, I wasn't very worried whether I passed or not.
I think I can pass and that my score would be a Second upper or lower.
Of course, I hope for Second Upper.

When I opened my SMRF letter, I was happy because I got what I hope for!
Finally, I graduated.
All the hard work, the sleepless nights paid off.

Sometimes, I still feel empty coming home doing nothing much just watching drama.
I feel that I am wasting my time away. Haha~
But I don't think I will go for Master.. yet..

Aiya.. maybe after married, got kids then I won't feel so empty already.
Seeing how my sis and mum taking care of Zyden, I can see how my life would be next time. Lol

Now, I am worried for the date of my Congregation ceremony.
Really crossed my fingers that it WILL NOT clashed with my wedding day.
I really want to attend my once in a lifetime ceremony. *Pray hard*
If not, I will see my classmates at night for my wedding.
I'll ask them to wear Robe to my wedding. Hahahaha..
Hopefully the Program Executive will give me another good news soon!

Matcha-misu & Milo-misu

G have been pestering me to make Milomisu for him.
So last week on the 2nd day of 2017, I made Milomisu for him and the family.
Then mum said its nicer this time because the cream is firmer.
I guess previously I used milk rather than thickened cream.
Anyway, she said its not enough for her and the family because all of us just get to eat one small piece.

And today I made double servings!
Confirm chop sure very enough for the family. LOL!
So I made Milomisu again and also tried out Matchamisu recipe.

I actually wanted to bring one box to the office for my colleagues to try but gave up the idea because mum says confirm we all can finish it.
So, that's too bad for my colleagues.
Also, I don't want to bear the responsibility if any anyone had stomachache after eating the food I make. :p

Just tried the Matcha one.
A little too sweet but still yummy.

I actually thinking of making new flavors like Lavender, Rose and Orange.
Guess I'll just open one shop to sell tiramisu la. LOL!
Ok. I will sleep early tonight to dream...

Hi 2017!

Its the 3rd day of the year 2017 already.
How time flies.

Today is the first work day of 2017.
As usual, feeling reluctant to go to work after a long weekend.
And I took half day morning off to sleep more.
I couldn't wake up due to sleeping late the previous days and I could only fall asleep at 3am.
Really need to adjust my body clock.

This Jan will be a busy but fulfilling month.
Lots of event coming up and weekend are so packed.
Could be tiring because not much rest but I am excited for the events.

Alright, I'll be back.
Off to meet my friends for her early birthday celebration. :)

Reflecting on 2016

Looking back the past 12 months, I think it's quite an exciting year for me and my family, especially the second half of the year.
I am also relieved that everything is back on path for me.

Alright so here are what was accomplished:
- Family trip which we haven done in the last 10 plus years. We went to Cruise and Hong Kong Trip.
- Blood Donation that I always wanted to do since young.
- Attended to my second Jay Chou's concert and this time, together with G, Veron, and her bf.
- Wrote about 10K essay which I've never done before.
- Completed my Degree course and currently still waiting for my result to release next year.
- Wedding Preparations.
- My 2nd trip to Korea, this time with G!
- A new generation was born in my family which you can see some of his photos in my past post.
- Witness my BFF Sheau Wei's wedding in Penang.

Actually, many second overseas trips this year.
HK, Korea and Penang are my second overseas trips.
Only cruise is my first experience.

Now that I see..
Actually I accomplished a lot.
And to say that my last year resolution was just hoped to be more positive and confident in myself.
So I can say that I surpassed what I hoped for.
I guess I became more positive in some ways but still feeling negative in something else.
About being confident, maybe just a teeny weeny bit? I am not sure.. and that's more for work stuff.

In the coming year 2017, I foresee that its gonna be a very exciting year for me!
- I am stepping into 30th (Can't really tell what's so exciting about this but its a milestone.)
- I will be graduating with a Bachelor degree (That says if I passed my dissertation.)
- Marriage.
- Might be getting our house key by end of the year.

I can't think of any resolution next year.
But I hope that everything will goes well smoothly.
I also hope that there will be a good and new opportunity for me next year. :)

Ok, That's all.
Happy New Year!
Hope you have a great one too!

Christmas 2016

Merry Christmas and Happy Boxing Day!
Are you enjoying your festive season and long weekend?
Singapore is having long weekend so we doesn't need to work today.

For me, its an yearly affair to meet up with some friends to catch up and also to exchange presents.

First up, a photo of baby Zyden.
I actually wanted to buy a Santa baby clothing for him but he is still not big enough so I bought this cute romper for him with funny wordings. :p


16 Dec
Xmas gathering at Stephy house.
Its my first time visiting her house and also to see baby Avril in person.
Ordered Domino's Pizza for dinner at her house.
After which, we have our presents exchange.



17 Dec
Early Christmas dinner with G because he had appointment on the eve.
And on the Christmas day itself, it will too packed outside so we decided to do it early.
We had our seafood feast at Park Royal Hotel - Spice Brasserie.


My present for him and myself is a Sovil et Titus watch.
I really love the vintage style.

He got me a rose gold ring from Gold Heart.


This year I didn't really give out much presents to my colleagues.
Still, I received quite a lot.
Really thankful for their small gesture. :)


Specially want to mention the 2 music box presents from SheauWei and Jamie.
SheauWei got me the one wedding music box while Jamie got me the kitten one.
The ferris wheel one was my own.
I bought it when i was in Taiwan in 2014 if I am not wrong.
Can't wait to move to my new house then I can decorate them in the cabinet. :)


Bought a log cake on the day I met SheauWei for dinner on 23 Dec.
Its the first time I bought it.
Maybe next year, I will try the chocolate-praline log cake from Starbucks.


Few days more to a new year.
Are you ready for it already?
I am not too sure if I am ready..
But let's face it positively! :)

Penang Trip 2016

It's my second time to Penang this year.
The main purpose is to attend and witness Sheauwei's wedding.
I am feel so happy for her as she finally found her Mr. Right.

In this post, I will be writing my 3D2N Peneng Travelogue.
Yes, squeezing everything in one post.
Really didn't do much as this mostly just to attend her wedding.

3 Dec 2016
We took the 11.20pm flight and the flight took about 1hr20mins.
By the way, we rent the Wifi Router from Changi Recommends.
But i can tell you, it is not recommended at all for Malaysia trip.
The data is so slow and sometimes I cant even get connection which I don't know why.
I spent $34 (inclusive of insurance) for this for 3 days which is not worthy at all.

Anyway, we touched down Penang at 1.30pm due to slight flight delay.
Had our lunch at the airport before heading to our hotel to check in and get prepared for the night.
The hotel that we stayed in is Hotel Equatorial Penang.
It's the hotel where SW's wedding dinner held at.
By the way, this hotel do provide airport transfer BUT you need to email and tell them what time they need to go to the airport to fetch you.
They didn't tell me that we need to make reservation in the email, which I wasn't very happy about it, so in the end we took Grab car to the hotel.

Reached the hotel and took a while to check in.
By the time, we went into the room, we need to prepare for the dinner.




The wedding dinner held at Etolie function room.
The rest, I will just use photos to show you the night.










4 Dec 2016
Woke up really early on this day to prepare for the customary wedding.
I was one of the sisters.

This is the view outside my room balcony.


My tired face.. Haha..


#OOTD.
All sisters will be wearing the same long skirt.

Reached SW's brother house and saw that she was preparing.
The other sister were planning games for the groom and brothers.

After SW done her makeup, we went for some photoshoots.
Also did mannequin challenge but the video is with the videographer.



Then its gate crash time.
It was my first experience really 不知所措 but still goes well smoothly. Haha..





Gatecrash successful!
After that, we stayed for a while before heading back to hotel to have our time.


This is the view outside SW's brother house.
It was a beautiful day so I took a snapshot of the view while waiting for our grabcar.


And this is our view in the day.
Chio right?

Anyway, back to our room and changed to a much comfortable outfit before heading out for shopping at Queensbay Mall.
We took the shutter bus provided by the hotel.
It was really convenient.

At Queensbay Mall, the Christmas feel is already up.
As the mall is under CapitaLand, I can see that the mall is very much like Singapore's.




And again, we are at the supermarket looking for foods to buy back for SG.
G took a photo of me holding so many maggie mee.. Lol!
Its not mine alone okay..



Bought so much food back again..

We had our lunch at the mall before heading back to hotel for Spa.
Not a very good experience because the massage is repeat motion.
I guess the therapist should upgrade her skills.
Other than time, I think it is okay..


The Christmas decoration in the hotel.

It was the last night in Penang.
We flew back to Singapore the next morning.

Due to the short time, we are unable to explore much this time.
Hopefully to go back again as I think Penang is still quite a nice place to visit. :)
