Wedding Preparation – Part 1

So bf and I decided that we should get started with finding a master to calculate our wedding date since the proposal in Oct. I know. We are very slow and had been slacking. So we finally emailed one of the more popular master, but he could only meet us in March! Gosh. Can i still find my desired hotel venue if i only confirm the date in March? I highly doubt so, given that most singaporeans are very kia-su (don’t wanna lose out) and will book their venue at least a year in advance. I don’t wish to settle for an open-date package with the hotel too, just in case the date i want turns out to be unavailable for us.

Now, we’ve got to try our luck and see if master will give us the dates first while we search for venue, and meet in Mar to discuss the details. Otherwise, we would have to find another master already. Sigh. Why didnt we approach him earlier? Such mess into the start of the preparation and is already turning me off. 😦

I’m also starting to browse and research the bridal studios and wedding banquet venue. So much to research!! Headache.

I hope i will be a happy bride! On a side note, i’m starting work soon next week, after a 3 months long break! Felt so fortunate that i was given this break, when i was offered the job in Oct-Nov. YAY!

Beauty bloggers

Just to share something that came up on my mind.

I was searching around for reviews on some of the skincare/cosmetics online. So while i was surfing, i noticed that it is significantly harder to find reviews that are genuine as compared to the past. Most of the reviews now are either for advertisement purposes, or bloggers just grab the content off the website and paste it on theirs. Now, i’m not saying that there are no genuine posts around, it’s just… hard to find. Don’t get me wrong. It gets frustrating when you see reviews from different blogs but they all sounds the same.

Funniest thing would be e.g. Blogger A claims that makeup remover X is her highly raved product and how it changes her makeup removal routine. But shortly after, there will be new post of hers exclaiming how she is in love with makeup removal Y. Both are ad purposes.

Like, hello?! What’s the point of reviewing when it is not sincere? Viewers can see all these, please. Soon, i gave up searching for bloggers’ review since 1) they don’t help much, 2) mostly are ads, 3) they are so much younger than me, i’ve probably tried so much more products then they had and well…we don’t have similar skin type. theirs could be much more elastic etc etc.

I will still be relying on the good o’ Makeupalley for reviews.

Proposal <3

Finally caught the show ‘Our Times’! It was so awesome! Didn’t expect myself to tear watching such movies. I don’t usually cry when I watch movies tho. Pls go watch it if u haven’t already!

I also want to document down how his proposal to me was. Although it wasn’t much, and he didn’t seem to put in much effort (pun intended), but still, I have a poor memory so I want to remember that moment.
It was a short and sweet one. So we got up Seoul tower, looked and walked around. We sat down at one corner where there weren’t much people. And I suggested to write on the lock. But he wanted to write first and then I wrote mine.

Then I wrote mine, he asked if I wanna know what he wrote. So yeah, of course right? If not, write for what? Then I said ‘duh,of course la!’. So he showed me the other side and got down on his knees infront of me. You see, he didn’t even put the question mark! Smiling and anxious, he popped the qn. Of course I didn’t agree right away, instead I push the ring away and asked, ‘why no flowers one! Not sincere at all! I can reject one right?!’.

Hahaha! All we did was laugh so hard tt time.

He said he couldn’t buy flowers cos I stick to him so much during the trip, he can’t plan surprises too. Hahaha I agreed, so I let him go. Then I asked ‘why no touching speech?? Or tell me why should I marry you’. I couldn’t remember what his answer was, kinda sad now tt I recall. See? My memory is really poor. I think it was smth along the line that he loves me and want to be with me forever kinda thing. Nothing touching. Haha so, ya I told him he owe me flowers then.

He looked so happy and promised on the flower part and quickly forcefully push the ring on my finger. -.- why my proposal like that one!!! 一点都不浪漫. Till today, I told him I shouldn’t have said yes first. Hahaha! And he made me waited for so long till the last day of the trip then propose to me. Kns, I was like waiting for it everyday leh, and he knows I was waiting. -.-

But it’s okay, although he can be a reaaaaal woodblock so many times, I guess that’s what I like about him. 😂 and he still owe me flowers! 😡

We just sent the ring for adjustment. It was too loose on me. He used his pinky finger as a gauge. In the end, we adjusted it to two size smaller. And it will be another 3-4 weeks wait~

Okay gotta remember this post so that I can reminisce back in future, haha!

Adopted a Mini Schnauzer

Recently, I adopted a mini schnauzer from an uncle. It’s such a coincidence that he lives nearby my area.

the uncle really took care of her very very well. I’m her third owner. she has a very sweet temperament. Or we can say she’s very quiet and lazy. hahaha! but all in all, I really love her! She seems to know I’m her owner cos she follows me almost everywhere. when I went out and came back later, she would stand up at my leg to greet me. She don’t do that to my other family members!

she doesn’t bark at all. hmm. trying to make her more active. she’s kinda too inactive. haha! lazy girl!
