Dessert Table

It's not norm to have this kinda dessert table for Malay weddings. But it's fun. I hope I can set up one for my wedding too. It'll be a combination of cakes, cupcakes, popcakes, chocolates, candies and everything sweet.

If only the guests could appreciate this... Say if I were invited to this kinda wedding, I'll die in happiness. Seriously, I'm happy.

Wedding Passport Invitation

I've always wanted my wedding to be unique and different, well, every bride wants the same for their wedding too. Sometimes, a very little detail plays an important part.

The same with invitation cards too. That's the first impression the guests will get once they receive your wedding invitations. You don't have to order expensive hardcover cards to impress them, which will be thrown away after the event. It's best if the cards left an impact on your guests.

So, taking into account of the costs (IMPORTANT!), I decided to make my own invitation cards. In the shape of passport! I've never seen any card like that in Malaysia, so I might as well start introducing it.

I've designed my own card already. I need to change the fonts and a little bit of the stamps. The card will be made in 2 languages, in Bahasa Melayu and Jawi. We want it to have a little bit of modern and traditional elements, so guests will get the best of both world. I need to take a day off to start buying papers in bulk in Brickfields. We've surveyed already, it is very very very very very cheap to make your own card.

Good luck!

Takeout Boxes

Been thinking of giving favors in takeout boxes. I googled the ideas on the net, there are sooooooo many inspirations.

Great news is, I found a vendor that provides takeout boxes in our very own country. Yeay! It's just RM1 per box.

Just a quick update...I've sent my dress for fitting. Remember I bought it online? Everything is perfect, I just need to alter the length for another 2-inch shorter than the original length. Other than that, I can say I'm very much satisfied.

I'll be going to Bandung with my family for a holiday trip next month. I still have two siblings in school. So vacation during school holiday is an opportunity. Hehehe. I may not shop much, considering I have everything planned in my head already. I think I'll just buy a nice red kain for my bridesmaids. That's all.

I need to set an appointment with Nurul, the vendor for our pelamin. Need to ask for deco for the hall and table setting as well.

I need to start making invitation cards. But no green light (confirmation) from Johan yet. It's a bit troublesome.

I need to re-plan the bunga pahar ideas with Nani, once I'm done with the colors and design of the pelamin.

I need to start taking good care of my skin and hair. Hahaha.

Thank God I still got 1-year ahead to plan. I know it's tooooooooo early but I'm fussy like that I need to start scouting from now.

Puchong - Kulai - Melaka - Puchong

This is a loooooong overdue post. My friend is engaged last 2 weeks. But the highlight is our lil escapade in Melaka. It was fun. Pictures are attached, obviously. Hehehe.

Office Pose!

My department is in the midst of revamping/rearranging the office to make it presentable and comfortable for the staff and public. With 31 staffs in a small office, workdesks can be messy and cluttered with papers and everything unorganised. My boss came with plans and we just followed whatever she decides. At one time she wanted to make a bunting for our department. The bunting will feature the candids of all the staff and whatnots. It sounds fun so last Wednesday, Wawa came to office bringing the big cam to capture our antics to be part of the bunting.

The male staff are somewhere at the back, waiting for their turns. The females dominated the cam for the next one hour. We are camera-freaks!

Quick Update!

It's now the second week of Raya. The weekend's schedule are usually packed with invitations to open houses and weddings.

Oh my...

I might as well put in some updates regarding my wedding prep.

  1. My nikah dress from Al-Hijaab arrived sometime 3 weeks ago via airmail. I like it very much. I was afraid it couldn't fit me because the measurements I sent them was taken when I felt good about my body (in other words, KURUS! Hahaha!) But yeah, it fits me well and just what everything I imagine it would be, just like in the picture, if you could refer to my previous post here.
  2. I know it's too early but I already bought my wedding shoes. Cheapo at RM129 (considering they have leather soles) at Elo in Subang Parade. Mind you, the size is BIG, it caters for big-sized feet. Usually I wear size 8/9 but in Elo, I have to admit that my size is 6. It's a pointed heels in cream color satin, with glittering crystals scattered all over the pointed part. It's simple yet pretty, I like!
  3. Just last week on Saturday I went to Alamanda for a lil browsing with my mom and siblings. And we both saw this gold bangle at S.Wan Jewels. The design is just like the one in Habib. I came back on Tuesday and bought the bangle for my hantaran. Johan was a bit skeptical because he was in Kuantan and couldn't see the real thing so I just MMS-ed him the purchase. Mesti pening kepala sebab 4K die melayang macam tu je in one night. Hahaha!
  4. My wedding dress is currently on it's way to my house. Remember the lacey dress that I kept persuading/forcing Johan to approve? Well, he did approved the dress and last night I checked, the parcel was in the process of sorting out somewhere in Shanghai. I should receive the dress within 2 weeks. Owh can't wait!
  5. Last but not least, my mom has approved almost everything. I mean, our choice of reception (we decided to combine the wedding of both sides), the place, my online dresses, etc. But still persuading her to do akad nikah in masjid. She wanted the event to be held in our house. :( My dad? He's the banker so he doesn't really care. He agrees to everything as long as it doesn't interfere with his racing schedule.

I guess that's all. Will keep you updated with more news. I gotta get ready. Gonna visit Johan's family and beraya. Hihihi.
