final weekend

final weekend of the 2nd longest holiday that I’ve ever taken since I’ve been employed, is just around the corner.

can’t believe it’s just all happened, and time flew by! from just 2 weeks before the wedding, to the wedding, then flying off 2 days later, and having our honeymoon in Japan for 2 weeks and the coming back for another week.

bloody intense trip if I might say so. =P

bits and pieces of events to come up shortly, once we go back to Perth and get our lives settled back to normal. Photos will be uploaded as well, one event at a time. Some from the wedding in Singapore from various cameras and then the lot from the wedding photographer. =D CAN’T WAIT! hehe

Better do my thank-yous first before they are left too late! Ick. Major thanks to:

The Aisle Wedding Boutique for being so accommodating and having to deal with us all the way from overseas, esp to Eddie. They kindly lent us clothes accessories for our wedding in Perth too! Really really appreciated them for that. Definitely saved us a couple of hundred bucks! And absolutely love the purple evening gown that was designed. To be absolutely not modest (haha), I thought I looked gorgeous in it. =D

Derrick Ong Photography. What can I say. This guy is a fantabulous and awesome! He was basically up for anything and everything that Donald & I suddenly thought of for photographs. All of us (incl. bridal party) were so comfortable with him. He was the wedding consultant for the day too..haha, helping out when we had no idea what to do for the tea ceremony. Really helpful and generous guy who allowed family with cameras to go ahead with taking photographs before himself. I have nothing but praises! =)

– Grand Hyatt Singapore. Brenda Wee & her team who managed the event on 17th October 2009. I know these people are used to such events, BUT I’m still amazed. The whole night went off without a hitch. Music, videos (okay, there was one, but it was a compatibility thing and it was fixed!), food and everything! Brenda also had to liase with me via email. I mean, a wedding’s such a huge thing, esp with 250 people, and I met Brenda a total of 4 times I think. She basically got what we wanted.

I can’t compare between the two weddings cos they are on differently levels.  Definitely awesome awesome wedding with awesome awesome friends. =D

quick word

waiting for Donald to sort out some train timings for our journey to Haneda airport, and then onwards to Sapporo! absolutely can’t wait. We’ve had some awesome memories in Hokkaido, so definitely looking forward to revisiting some familiar places.

It’s been a whirlwind weekend and trip for us. The wedding on Saturday was awesome, on a whole level different to the one we had in Perth. We had fun at the outdoor shoot even though it was scorching. Thanks to my lovely bridesmaids and groomsmen who made the whole day so memorable! =) We had a lovely photographer who indulged in various silliness of us as well. haha.

Will attempt to blog the day bit by bit, followed by our trip. Hopefully there’ll be a fair bit of decent photos! Can’t wait for the wedding photos to be done! hehe.

Till then, it’s off to Umeda, Osaka for shopping. 2.6km of shopping streets! *swoon*

just another weekend

weekends should just be like this.

half-days Friday.

food on the go.

some time in the garden.

a little nana-nap before dinner time.

=)

I wasn’t even sure if I was meant to go into work today. I was sooo groggy when I got woken up this morning by Donald, after he had came back from his graveyard shift at Ikea. I haven’t been sleeping well lately, so I took a flu tablet last night (the kind that make you uber drowsy), and crashed all the way till this morning. Dead to the world. haha.

Went to work for a couple of hours, just to pick the post, and wait for any parcels. Or rather, wait for Donald’s and MY parcel. Donald’s arrived, mine didn’t. =( I’m still waiting for my replacement E66 LCD screen that I ordered on ebay 2.5 weeks ago. BAH. The screen’s just going from bad to worse. Sigh.

Headed off to Freo market to Cake of Soap to get some handmade organic soap for the cousin (like a dozen!!), and grabbed a bright red delicious-looking, strawberry scented one as a gift for an upcoming birthday as well. Every time I walk into that shop, I walk out feeling hungry, and desperate for dessert. They look THAT good to eat. Have a look at their website and you’ll know what I mean. We weren’t allowed to take pictures, and I’m not about to take the slab that I bought out of the box which is already nicely wrapped =P

Lunch was a crepe suzette with pan-fried chicken, spinach, carrots & balsamic vinegar (mine), and another one with fish and salad (Donald’s). We walked down the streets of Freo, just chilling. Would have loved to have a coffee, but the fiance looked tired, so we didn’t spend too much time around.

Went to Subi markets and I love the markets here, cos of the bright colours of fresh produce! Was so tempted to buy a little of every type of fruit to bring back to Singapore. Apparently strawberries are in season, hrm. Very very tempting to buy a carton home to share. Got some loose nuts for the nutty people at home and some dried fruit. Which reminds me..should bake some cranberry muffins soon. They were yum the last time I made them.

The rest of the arvo was spent checking out airfares and booking flights for our honeymoon! Bloody cheap airfares to Japan. haha. We’ll be spending about two weeks there, before heading back to Perth again. very very exciting! Alot of things to look forward too =P but another thing to think about. ARGH.

4 more days to go!
