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.

Counting Down The Days

Half the year has gone and as the second half starts, I start counting down the days; to the end of my time working at my current work place, the start of my life as a wife and the start of my responsibilities at the new work place.

A friend of mine said that I, like her, seem to do things the bandaid way. Why string out the pain slowly, just rip the bandaid off quickly at one go?

I didn’t plan to have everything happen at the same time. It just so happened that it all seems to happen in the same month.

Are you sure this is supposed to be part of the process?

Because all this talk about wedding is annoying me. And it’s my wedding. All I want to do is to tell the whole world about the wedding plans and shit.

All. The. Bloody. Time.

Seriously, I’m so Minah Kahwin-Kahwin right now that I want to smack myself.

I want to show people all the pictures I took of myself after I did my make up trials. The hair that my make-up artist did for me. All the different presents. What we’re planning. What I’m wearing. What he’s wearing. Where we’re going. Heck, I want to show the whole world my wedding dress, like oh my glob, just stop it with the wedding shit already.

I wonder if other brides-to-be have this same reaction? This insatiable need to talk about the wedding.

I wonder if this is how Bridezillas come about, to have all that attention focused on just them.

The thing is, I just want to get the wedding over and done with so that we can actually start on the married life thing, to build something together, which I thing is more important than the wedding itself.

I think I need a distraction. Something to keep my mind off the wedding stuff.
