Oh Look, Krill!

Oh don't worry. Whales don't eat clownfish, they eat krill.


To the people who made my wedding awesome, thank you.

A successful and smooth wedding always has a number of people who helped to make it that way. My wedding was no different.

1. More Than Diamonds
I was very picky with my the type of ring I wanted since it had to fit the type of work I do and not get in the way. Most of the rings we saw at the jewellers were either too ostentatious or way above or budget, so we decided on getting our rings custom-made.

The lovely couple who ran the business, listened to what we wanted and designed the rings on the spot and gave us good suggestions on the design we wanted. With a number of different materials, gemstones and designs to choose from, it wasn’t difficult to find one that we both loved and still stay within budget.

2. Vibrant Skin Sanctuary
I’ve been going to Vibrant Skin Sanctuary for years to do my monthly facial. I love the personalised service, reasonably priced packages and most of all, she helped my skin feel and look better. So when I found out that she provided the bridal spa service, I jumped at it.

It was so pampering and relaxing. My skin felt so soft and smooth for weeks after the treatment. It was totally worth smelling like ikan goreng (fried fish) during the treatment.

Adventures of living with cats: #1 The one where I got bit

I’ve always wanted cats but my mom had always said no. So, I got my wish when I got married since my husband has 2 cats, Sadie and Coco, at home. He keeps insisting that I only like the idea of having cays but I have no idea what I’m in for.

The past three weeks, had been good in my opinion. I’m learning to watch where I step in case of cats underfoot. Especially at night, when I go to the kitchen in the dark and they choose the darkest part of your path to lie down on.
Anyway I have a daily routine now, where I brush Sadie everyday when I come home from work.

See this cat there? She’s cute and innocent looking isn’t she? Well, she isn’t!

3 weeks in

It was hard moving out of my parents’ house. I’m leaving behind the home I’ve always known, my comfort zone and the company of my blood relatives, into a different house, with people I meet at most a couple of times a week, before the wedding. It was a change to sleep in a bigger bed and share it with some one. It was strange to have 2 cats under feet most of the time and most of all, getting used to the new bathroom schedules.

I realised how pampered I was; having breakfast already prepared by the time I’m showered and dressed, the laundry done for me, there were fresh bedsheets on the bed weekly. Now I’m the one doing the laundry, the breakfast and the sheets. It’s a learning experience that I’m hoping that I’ll be better at and be able to do it faster.
