Thought I’d drop in to revive this blog a bit. Been really busy preparing for the wedding. Yeah, what’s new right?
I am so glad & grateful my bunch of bridesmaids have been clocking in so much time helping me with my wedding decorations. Me being Asian, a bit paiseh to ask for help at first but they all volunteered…I didn’t even have to bribe them with food!
Celine in particular has been feeding me with delicious hasma jelly she lovingly boiled at home for me every week! :)
They are so incredibly awesome, I couldn’t find better girls than this bunch! /sniffs
Speaking of wedding decorations, I have decided to eshew professional wedding decorators. Too expensive!! I just couldn't justify plonking down a sum of money enough for a sweet holiday in Maldives towards frilly stuff that will only be useful for one night. Call me cheapass, but that's how I feel!
So I've been to Klang for many times getting supplies. Klang is my new favourite town! I love it for its food, but I love it more now for it's cheap, higher quality DIY/craft supplies!
I bought a bunch of fabrics, fake flowers (yeah gasp in horror...but my flowers, which by the way look very realistic will never look wilted in pictures!) and ready-made corsages.
# - Lainey helping me pick out corsages.
And of course, the girls have been helping me over the weekend, shredding fabrics into streamers and more until their fingers blistered & ached. I feel the love, I really do. HUGS ALL <3
# - Lots and lots and lots of handmade streamers.
# – Whey Lu, Celine, Sin Loo and Lainey. Jayna too but she’s not in picture.
The colour of the streamers are picked out from out wedding invites. Our wedding theme? Retro Technicolour Frenzy!!! Ya, I so totally just made that up heh.
I love, love, love our invites. It is very us!
I love the fist bumps in front because that’s really our thing…we practically fist bump over every gawd damn thing haha.
# – WooHoo. Picture stolen from Chee Ling, our awesomesauce invite designer.
We don’t have a favourite colour so we decided on using most of them. We love sweets so we decided to share some. In fact, we tested several brands and the one on the invite is the tastiest one ok!
And there’s a bit of geekiness too but only the geeks would spot it.

I can’t believe it’s a little over 20 days to the wedding! I still have tonnes of stuffs I haven’t done! I haven’t bought dresses for my two flower girls and I haven’t…okay, that’s it!?
