Quatsch

Pardon my silence from blogging for the last 6 days.

I spent my last weekend with my parents. H had done his part of settling the legal documents so I can finally proceed with mine. Insya Allah my dad will send the form as soon as he can and I pray that everything is complete. If so, then Alhamdulillah, the legal procedure dah settle.

Seeing your parents getting all psyched up for your wedding is indeed cute. At times, I feel like my parents are much more excited than me. Hearing them talking about their plans and their vision on the big day is confusing but it's fun to see their "other side". Don't you agree?

Jangan Dad-Zilla dan Mom-zilla over dari Bride-zilla sudah.

I was touched the other day when mom commented how pretty I looked when I was getting all dolled up by Kak Ram, my MUA for the big day. Mom has been pestering me for so long to have at least 1 trial session with the MUA. An email from Eti kinda give me the boost to go.

The verdict? Like I said, I looked pretty in my mom's eyes. But she's my mom, she's biased to say so. Hehe. I like Kak Ram's touch for my solemnization look. Very natural, pure and sweet. But I was still contemplating about my look for the reception. You see during the trial, I requested him to do the smokey eyes. It turned out OK according to my mom but you know how mothers are, aren't you? I'm doubting myself. I don't know whether I can carry off the look. I seriously don't want ended up looking like a crazy bride whose eyes had been punched.

Pening oh pening.

When H and I decided to get married, I decided not to burden my parents and decided that the whole wedding is to be financed solely by yours truly. That's why you heard me talking about budget here and there so many times. Oh well, except maybe for the kenduri, where it'll be a fair share between my parents and I. So when mom mentioned that she wanna pay for the wedding gifts and the invitation card, I was so touched and thankful at the same time. I didn't expect it at all. I nearly cried but of course, control ayu la babe. Haha.

Apropos invitation card, I have yet to do it. We went to Jalan Brunei on Sunday two weeks ago and found that at Jalan Brunei itself is scattered with printing companies. After I panicked during the cousin bailed out incident, I emailed Dell from MarryMe2U. I don't know if she'll be able to do my card as she's waiting for her time to go on maternity leave. I have yet to draw the improvised map but I will email her again and see how. If not, I have to resort to one of the printing companies in Jalan Brunei/Pudu.

Tapi kad Marry Me 2 U is of high quality sebab Nawal punya nikah invitation card is from her. And I only need 300 pieces je pun. So if I were to print outside, it will more or less cost the same as Dell's. Kan?

Since invitation card is very limited, I'm sorry to say that priority will be given to close friends and those who had RSVP-ed and 100% sure that they're coming.

And oh, that reminds me of my so-called Save The Date. For those who still didn't know, here's the details.


Date: 25 December 2010
Venue: Bride's home - Perlis
Time: 12 noon - 4.30 pm


I will put up our STD soon or whenever I have time to do so. Banyak kerja oi. Penat. Tengoklah kalau aku rajin. Hehe.

Sejak dari kecil2an, mak dah cakap, kalau nak kahwin, kenduri makan je mak bayar, lain2 kene kumpul duit sendiri, kalau tak cukup duit, loan dengan parents tanpa bunga :D
Bunyi macam kejam, tapi cara itu sangat berkesan supaya kami berjimat duit gaji and all 4 of us paid everything for our wedding. Parents pun boleh bangga cakap, "we only paid for the food".
Tapi tulah, wedding kami semua tersangat2 simple. Jeles juga sikit2 bila tengok wedding yang grandeur.

Nasiblah hidup ini terlalu sibuk nak imbas balik ape yang berlaku semasa majlis kahwin (wedding album pun tah ke mana :). Maka kami rasa sangat berbaloi tidak spent puluhan ribu untuk wedding reception walhal, banyak lagi perbelanjaan yang diperlukan selepas kahwin. Anyways, good luck ye :)

sori, terpanjang pula celotehnya ;)

I fund my own wedding too; except for food :)

Am I proud of that or what? Hee. I should get at least a pat on my back right? Heeeeeeee :D

My fiance funded the wedding on his own. Including the food. And my dowry, and my wang hantaran, and my gifts, and my ring, and the house and lots of other things. Can you imagine how much burden he has to handle?

I know I am going to marry such a great man so I try not to lose focus and concentrate on what's more important - the marriage itself :)

belle:
tula. kad dell lagi cantik dari the other company tu. die tak charge pun untuk design sume. hopefully i can do my card with her la. tapi map tak siap2 lukis lagi ni. camno?? workload melampau sangat lately

papaya;
betul tu. i always remind myself yang marriage is more important than the wedding. sebab tu kalau boleh tanak berhabis-habisan dengan wedding ni. i tak kisah sapa2 nak buat wedding grand, it's their money and their priority, takde hak nak larang. i dont mind actually. rezeki masing2 kan. in fact i'm happy to see that they got what they wished for.

nawal:
