Honeymoon ♥ - Part 2

Okay, remember how we were looking at beach destinations for our honeymoon?

Well, not anymore.

I got a bit paranoid after hearing about the recent earthquake in Chile and tsunami warning here in our country that I'm re-thinking our choices. Told this to Fiance, who calmly thinks that it's perfectly safe to go to Krabi or Phuket. But, he respects my paranoia (eceh, padahal I basically whined and complained till he had no choice but to agree :p) and agrees to change our destination.

So, now I'm looking at hilly places. I think that's quite relaxing and romantic for a honeymoon, kan? Right now, my first choice is Chiang Mai. I've been looking at hotels set atop of Chiang Mai's hills which are really just breathtaking. Again, my point of reference is AirAsiaGo, formerly known as GoHoliday.

I think Chiang Mai is quite a good choice for us since the city is rich with culture, history and hee, shopping! Both myself and Fiance loves history so this is certainly a bonus point. There are plenty of museums there, which I suspect Fiance would like. I still remember how he dragged me to so many museums while visiting Edinburgh, Scotland. And one particular museum that I can never forget is The Natural History Museum! OMG, it was soooooo boring!! It was a museum filled with dead animals. I cant remember whether they were real or replicas. But, either way, it was just so dry and blergh. I pretended to be interested when Fiance pointed out all these different kind of animals; some I've never even heard of, since we just started dating kan? But, seriously that wasnt fun. At all. I dont recommend it. Unless you're like my Fiance. Then, it's like Disneyland for you :p Now, I can admit this la, since dah nak kahwin dah kan *wink*

So, back to my point on Chiang Mai....that's why I think it would be a good honeymoon destination choice for us.

I'm also looking at other places like Vietnam, perhaps? But, I havent really researched properly. So, for now, Chiang Mai.

Oh, we'll be braving the war in next weekend's Matta Fair. Wish us luck!


One of the hotels we're looking at. What a view, kan?

Inspired by my friend's wedding saree, I went searching for this beautiful material.

And look at what I found!

This one just.takes.my.breath.away.! It's white and heavily beaded, perfect for a simple baju kurung. I would probably use this for my akad nikah. That is if I had another chance of doing my wedding all over again :p



This light brown+gold-ish sheer saree screams GLAMOROUS! Imagine that for your reception dress, with some gold detailing, you can be one glamorous bride! *love*



I love this grey beaded saree as well. Very very chic! And the best thing about grey? It matches a lot of other colours to bring out different moods.



Like if you pair it with this pink saree for your bridemaids/entourage/family members, you'd achieve a very chic but sweet look.



Just look at that detailing at the bottom! That's just grand!! I would probably use this for my tunang. Oh, or baju raya also nice! Hmmmm...*thinking*



The last two sarees would be nice either for an engagement do'…

Hello Rizman Ruzaini, Bye Bye Syaiful Baharim!

Shocking kan? After my last post on Syaiful Baharim.

So what happened?

Ok, yesterday evening me and mom went to Jakel to get the lace. Sampai je Jakel, pegi la kat tingat kain exclusive tu, focus hanya untuk mencari lace. I wanted a simple, CHEAP, non-beaded lace. Any kind, asalkan cantik. The SA who helped us, who happens to be the owner and Mom's friend, mestilah tunjuk yang beaded Solstiss je. Without a doubt, Solstiss lace IS exquisite. Memang tengok muka automatically berseri-seri, bibir tersenyum-senyum. But, boy, the price! MasyaAllah..!

I was actually quite good; I actually said NO because the laces that she showed me are all very expensive, jenis ribu2 PER METRE! And I was looking to buy 4 metres of lace! So I said to Kak S (the owner), I prefer the simpler one, no beads, tak payah la Solstiss2 ni. So, she showed me some, plain, simple and sweet, I didnt have a problem getting just that.

Then.....

Kak S: Who's your designer nanti?

Me: Syaiful Baharim..

Kak S: Oh, Syaiful. Di…

Be Prepared on Your Wedding Day!

So useful, this!

Print this and give a copy to your maid of honour/best friend/sister or whoever that will be close to you on your big day.

Often, brides forget the food and drink bit, but trust me, have some snack handy. Because you WILL be hungry. And don't forget straws! You don't want to ruin your lipstick :p

Okay, everything else is self explanatory.

You're welcome!
