Midst of Miss becoming Mrs

Yes, I'm getting married! =) 

We had initially thought of a simple wedding but it is always never about 2 persons but 2 families so now I'm getting headache and stressed over the planning. :p But lucky our wedding is in 2018 so I still have plenty of time to do research. 

We have confirmed our wedding dinner at one of the hotel and deposit has been placed to secure our booking. That's one thing off the checklist. I have also just confirmed a photobooth, going to place deposit by end of this month. I'm now looking around bridal shops for actual day packages, the things included are almost the same but the price may differs.

The first bridal shop I went to was in JB, Malaysia when the mister and me had a 3D2N staycation at DoubleTree Hilton near Citysquare mall. I will update that in a separate post. I went to Digio Bridal Cafe but the price was not to my liking. :p I then headed next door to H Gallery and I tried on 3 white gowns and an evening gown, I liked the white gown most especially the bottom mermaid design but the back is not revealing enough. The mister liked the evening gown though. I like classic design with a little bit of sexiness. :) The price is quite good for the whole package (less than SGD 700), though it doesn't include Kua (tea dress) and makeup. 

Back to the shops in SG, I went to Malena Bridal Haute Couture during GSS sale and the package price they offered were pretty decent. I like the white gowns but evening gowns were limited so I had my hesitations. Since this was GSS sale, the SA was trying to ask me to take their package since I like their gowns. When it comes to slightly huge amount, I will think twice instead of impulse decision as I haven't seen around other bridal shops. The SA said I won't be able to get this price again if I left but I said it's ok, I will come back again if I really like the package. 

I have made appointment at La Belle Couture soon because I really like their gowns design. I have also contacted Digio Bridal and The Gown Warehouse, am hoping I can find something I like and confirming it soon.

I have also checked out our wedding bands from Love & Co. and I'm thinking to check it out at Michael Trio too. I'm not sure if we should have it custom-made instead, as Nelly has recommended me to check out Josi Gem. But let me settle my actual day package first. :) 

It can be an excited yet scary thing to plan for a wedding, nothing grand but full of blissful feeling. I'm so happy to have found the right man and he is putting in effort in running around finding the perfect gown I want.  =) 

I can't wait for the day to arrive to marry the love of my life!

Valentine's Day 2017 at The Cornerstone - Bishan Park

We do not have any plans for Vday this year so the mister and me had our date earlier on 12-Feb to Prive at Keppel Marina for brunch and to take the cable car to Sentosa since he is member of FaberPeaks. :) 

Nothing fanciful, it was a day well spent. He gave me all the love & care a girl ever wanted and I'm blessed with him even doing nothing at all. =) 

I took part in an instagram contest days before Vday and I was notified on Monday that I had a won a Vday 7-course dinner for Tuesday! I was over the moon when I received the news - to share the dinner with my boy, to go to a restaurant which I have been wanting to try!

We make the reservation at 7.30pm and arrived on time - the ambience was great for a start! 

His shirt was bought by me, this color made him looked more matured :x

Menu was provided to us - so this was what 7-course dinner was about!

We were served our wine when seated.

With the romantic music "Tonight I celebrate my Love for you" embedded deeply in my mind, I fall in love with him once again. 

These were some of the starters - I love the soup and scallops! =) I had 2 doses of the oyster shots since the boy was not a fan of oysters. 

 The main course took some time to be served, because the restaurant was full house so can you imagine? :)

The boy ordered the miso cod fish while I ordered the steak with half lobster because I love lobster. <3

After the main course, it took a longer time for the desserts to be served, but it's alright since I stayed nearby. :p We had 2 types of desserts - jelly made of wine and 2 cakes.

This sums up our Vday this year =)

Last of all, not forgetting the photo which is complimentary from the restaurant! 

Though we are slowly planning our wedding but his mum has called me and said we should start planning our wedding so.... we are planning for our wedding next year! =) 

I'm really blessed because close friends and family members know that I have encountered few bad relationships in the past - 3rd party (foreigner) who entered my previous 4.5years relationship, selfish haolian ex, guys who are not sure of what they want etc.

Yet this guy here filled my days with so much love and smile - he does not make me cry, love & pamper me alot, we are like family members to each other, living which day simple. I really am more cheerful these 2 years plus and always smiling

Ladies, if you are going through a rough patch in rs, please love yourself more - you will eventually meet the right one in your life. :) I know saying is easy - but I have been through very rough patch, but I survived. I really regret my actions in the past, but well at least I learned to handle things well now (but through the hard way). If my parents know these, it will break their hearts.

Remember things will get better and "Lao Tian" will definitely have a plan for you because you deserve the best after going through shit. :) 

I'm looking forward to life with him because he knows he will love me only for the rest of his life and will give me the best. I'm waiting for the day of our wedding which I would say "Today, I marry my best friend, my love, my soulmate". =D

2nd Anniversary at Cocobolo Poolside Bar + Grill

Times flies ~~~ We have known each other for 3 years but together 2 years only - our daily lives are like old couple, no gifts on occasions and spending time with each other once or twice a week only. :(

I have been feeling so tired because my house have been going through a revamp - changed the sofa, shoes cabinet, whole set of air-conditioners and now bed-frames and mattresses! The mister insisted to meet for dinner on Tuesday (actual day of anniversary), so I am quite important to him. :p 

I'm so surprised that he got a Kate Spade bag for me because he will never want to buy stuff that are too expensive (maybe only stingy to himself). I have eyed on this bag since a month ago and he knows it. :) Thank you Baby <3

We had our dinner on a Friday (23rd Dec) because he has won a dinner voucher previously by taking part in a radio station contest. Dinner was at Park Hotel, Clarke Quay area. I'm sorry that my following post may sound angry/offensive because I had encountered bad services and people cutting my queue at Taxi Stand.

I'm glad that we don't have to pay for this dinner because I will not want to spend the price on such ambience/food. :) 

The poolside are was small, there were ants on the tables and the ambience made me felt itchy all over. We told the staff about the voucher and he said it's alright and showed us to our seat. It was all BBQ stuff, salad bar and some dessert counter. I only had a steak, some sotongs, 2 prawns and that's it! I told the mister I will not go again even if it was for free. 

Halfway through the meal, the staff came and told us we cannot use the voucher because it is festive season. The voucher can only used on Fri, Sat & Sun and is valid till 29-Dec-2016 so 23rd Dec is the last day we can use the voucher since 24th is eve and 25th is public holiday. I told the staff that we are not using on the eve and they never state that 23rd is festive season. The mister was getting angry (he is a quiet person and very nice always but when he know that fault is not with him, he will argue the reason)! He demanded to see the manager - the staff went to check with another colleague and they allow us to utilise the voucher (we not gian png type, we can pay if we want). After that, NOBODY came to clear our plates or refill our water when there were not many customers! I was so angry that I wanted to leave but it was raining heavily so we had to wait till the rain stopped! Argh~~~~  I don't think I will want to go back there again!

I had a black face while walking to Clarke Quay where we wanted to have drinks - encounter another super rude service at Wings bar. I walked to the table with 3 seats but the waitress said I can only take the seat for 2. Ok Fine! Then 2 groups of 2 people came and they took those tables with 3 seats -.-" what is this?!

It really spoilt my night and luckily we managed to get a table at Shuffle Bistro Bar where I can listen to some nice songs performed by liveband

After some time there, the mister suggested HaiDiLao for Supper and oh ya, it was my 2nd HDL within a day because I had HDL with colleagues for lunch. :p This made me cheer up a little yet feel sleepy already :D

We finished at around 2.15am and while queuing at the taxi stand, there were many people who were drunk and they were still in the queue. While it was my turn, I saw this lady dressed in sleeveless top and denim jeans who were pretending to text suddenly appeared in front of me and the next thing I knew is, she walked to the taxi and got in. I immediately shouted "Oei! Cut queue, you don't know how to queue up is it!". The taxi coordinator knew what was happening but he was stunned too. The guilty lady dare not look at me - I just wanted to make her malu of her own actions. I should have just got in the passenger seat and demand her to get off the cab (my mood was super bad that day!).

Thinking of it, I still feel 不甘心 to let someone cut my queue while waiting for taxis.
