wedding dress(es)



Mr Ang said that i dun have to stress or worry about the wedding....everything regarding the wedding, he will settle them for us... i will just need to settle my own dress(es) and make up for that day.... sounds good right??? hahaha.... but i m still stress and having a headache leh....

initially, it was a small scale wedding so i only wanted a very simple white dress and was really happy when lene very generously sponsored me one.... i have selected a white tube flowy dress from arthur yen's collection and had wore it for my photoshoot in June... =)....


now that the wedding has been "upgraded", and that we will be having gate crashing, tea ceremonies and 2 march-in during the dinner.... Mr Ang and I feel that i need to upgrade my dresses too.... so in total, i will be having 3 dresses.... wahahaha....

so lene's white dress will be used for the morning gate crashing and the tea ceremony at Mr Ang's place...


...looks kind of yellowish here due to the lightings....but nice right??? i likey...

then i will change into mummy's red qipao for the tea ceremony in woodlands...

i m in the midst of ordering an evening dress for the second march-in thru an online website (http://elasdress.blogspot.com/) that custom made wedding dresses... will inspect the quality when it arrive 2 months later before deciding whether to make the 1st march-in gown thru this website too... if they really deliver what they show on the website.... then i've gotten quite a good deal oh...hahaha.... any sponsors for the 2 additional gowns that i will be getting???? hahahaha....

actually, i wanted to share the picture of the wedding dress that i had selected de... but Mr Ang say must give all of u a surprise on that day.... !!!... let's see how long i can tahan.... wahahaha.... i m usually not a keeper of surprises.... especially my own...
give clue....hahaha....a blue one.... =P

Ballet Under the STARS



... us at our second ballet under the stars ...


...our orange tags...

some of the not so blur photos of the dancers.... they kept moving lo.... !!!

heard of "a hungry man is an angry man"
how about "a well fed dino is a happy dino"... =)

...me with my favourite banana prata... but here (dhoby ghaut) one not nice one...

ring bearer

... Ring bearer ...

was waiting for Mr Ang at Yishun... standing in front of Sk jewellery.... look look look and the piece of 'jewellery' that caught my eyes were these super cute crystal bears.... but need to purchase dun know how much worth of wedding bands ...1k??? 5k??? ... then can receive a pair as free gift...

that very night, mummy was showing me some of her jewellery which she plans to give me as dowry.... a gold set (abit obiang but one of the least obiang one already).... a white gold set which looks pretty....and the set that i always wear on CNY & weddings & functions.... so the set that i have been wearing for the last 10 or so years has been lawfully transfered to me.... hahaha...

she was grumbling that SK dun have any nice jewellery box for her to put the jewellery to present to me....then she complained that they gave her some useless crystal figurines instead.... when she showed me the useless box of crystal figures... i jumped and i screamed for Mr Ang.... so happy until i was dancing around lo... hahaha.... even happier than when i saw the jewellery she was giving me lo... hahahaha...mummy scolded me crazy for being so much happier over the useless crystal bears than the jewellery ....oopx.... and she had gotten the bears for free lo... =P

... mine mine mine..... saw it + like it + got it.... felt so lucky... =)

now looking for a glass dish in the shape of a heart so that i can attach these two cutie bears on to be my ring bearer... =)

2nd visit to peony jade


A 2nd visit to Peony Jade @ Keppel Club

not only did we change the date of the wedding, Mr Ang decided to up the number of tables from a small and cosy 8 to a 20.... great....now i dun have to tell my friends...i only invite u , cannot bring gf/bf/hubby/wifey ah... hahaha.... but also means more stress...cos now (in my opinion) is like a full scale wedding.... no more merely a celebration party kind liao... oopx...

anyway, due to the large number of tables, we cant use the Peony room liao...alittle sad...cos i quite like the idea of being exclusive ....like having a private room like that.... hahaha.....now have to upgrade to the main restaurant... but i also think we are having the whole restaurant to ourselves...so still exclusive.... hahaha.... just bigger room.....
we are using the gold theme, where all the sash on the chair and table cloth are in gold...


oh, and this time round, the wedding coordinator whom served us was James Tan... very nice and experience guy..... and we got quite a few perks.... hahahaha.....

1) 3 hours free flow of pump's room beer....
i was surprise to find out that pump room and peony jade are under the same boss..... =) ...gerald would be so happy....hahaha...he loves pump room.... i hope it's for the beer and not the singer though....oopx.....

2) free 1 bottle of red wine for every confirmed table
provided we use OCBC credit card to make the final payment...so now sourcing for a generous kind soul who is willing to let us max out his / her card on the wedding day.... hahaha....but it also means that each table will only have 1 bottle of wine.... so ppl, control control okie... heee....

3) free projector
yippy....no need thick skin to ask from mr choo liao....

4) food tasting from for 6 ppl to 8 ppl
only for 6 dishes though.... so should be papa & mama ang, grandma ang, korkor ang, mr ang and me, mama chua and grandma chua bah....

5) no need to pay extra for music copyright (sshhhh...)

6) free room for 1 night with breakfast at Conrad hotel
can use within 30 days b4 or aft the wedding.... abit bo hua to use on actual night right??? cos we only check in at 12+ or 1am.... then still need to count angbao...$$$$.... hahaha... then no time to enjoy the room and the facilities .... then when leh???

7) corkage waiver
we wun be providing any hard liqour but we wun stop u from bringing also....hahaha.... but must be duty paid de wor...means cannot bring those bought from the airport de oh...though the restaurant ppl say that they will close one eyes, but if any thing is to happen then u have to face the music yourself wor... fine up to $20k for a bottle.... that's like the price of the whole banquet liao lo....

8) $188 nett discount from the final bill

9) $100 dining vouchers
initially still thought that we can have the buddy package with Ting Yang so that we will get to share an additional $388 nett discount...but James said that they cant combine the ocbc promotion with the buddy package... so of cos we just go for the ocbc promo lo.... =)

the Proposal

... Proposal ...

Mr Ang works like a bullet train.... within the first week of being together... he already told me that he wants to marry me... and in our conversation, he will always cheekily ask, "Do you want to be Mrs Ang?" "Ok!" i always reply.... why not right??? ...anyway also not as in now mah...i always think....

And on 23rd night (24th dec 2009 wee morning) after double o....after only 5 months of being tog... we were talking, talking, talking, talking at the abandoned bus stop next to my flat when

Him (very seriously): Do you want to be Mrs Ang?
Me: ya
Him: I m not joking, u know?
Me: okay lo… then where’s my ring and the kneeling down ceremony???

And he kneeled down (the wrong way though… with both knees… diao!!!) without the ring…. But I still accepted it cos I wanna be Mrs Ang, I wanna be with him, the ah boy who loves me wholeheartedly and one who loves and accepts me for who I really am…. And accepting the proposal now dosen mean I have to go through the ceremony now mah…. Hee… everything will be in 3 – 4 years times... Or so I thought…

and oh boy, I was so very de wrong…. Remember i mention that Mr Ang works like a bullet train??? …. So the schedule now has been hastened to get married within 1.5 years of being tog and hopefully promote to be daddy and mummy ang within 3 years of being tog… hahahaha….

Oh…and I was always thinking why would girls cry when being proposed to… now I know why… it’s the hormone…. Cos although I cried like any other girls…I still dun undertsand what was I crying about…. Diao!!!...so must be the hormones’ fault loh…. =)

the date

... The Date ...
update on 25 July 2010..
restaurant not available on 1st jan 2011.... so we can only book the next best date on 2nd Jan 2011..... it's a sunday with monday as a holiday so no excuse for ppl not to turn up ah....hahaha

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

wonder how many to be wed couple would have their wedding date postponed due to the YOG leh??? think mine is one of the rare few bah.... hahahha..

the culprits (YOG mascots) that screw up my weddign date.... hahaha....


due to YOG, NTU has to start their 2010 school year a month late, which mean their exam date will be pushed back by a month as well.... so the initial date of 18 Dec 2010 was smacked during Mr Ang's exam period.... hahaha....

he has a paper on 15 dec, 18 dec itself and many many more in the week that follows....with these kinds of exam dates...how to continue with our wedding celebration on 18 dec??? ... i might as well change my wedding theme to exam days so that Mr Ang has an excuse to study and mug his books during the wedding dinner + the ROM ceremony itself loh.... not a bad idea hor??? especially when i just read that a couple went back to their primary school to hold their rom and custom make 70 -80 school uniforms for their guests....

anyway, we will be changing the wedding date to during his school hols instead.... tentatively looking at 1 jan 2011 and 15 jan 2011.... dates to be confirmed later after we finalised it once more with the Peony Jade @ Keppel ... i prefer 1/1/11.... looks nice ah??? heee ...

one year partor anniversary



to celebrate our happy one year together, i treated him high tea at my favourite high tea place - Scotts Lounge @ Hyatt... cos Mr Ang had been grumbling that i always go high tea with friends and never bring him go .... hahaha....

we were seated at table 3.... tucked at the far left corner.... i like.... mean no matter how nua i m... ppl can't see me.... hahaha...


Mr Ang with his cuppucino....


a very nua me.... as usual.... i was so full after the high tea that i couldn't function.... all my energy seems to be busy digesting.... i was basically moving around like a sleepy zombie....

and Mr Ang dun really fancy high tea type of snacks... he dun eat beef and mutton and there were too much pastries for his liking.... he's a typical 饭桶.... hahaha...

Then, we proceeded to our love nest for the night.... Hotel Re! @ Pearl's Hill

located on Pearl's hill means we have to climb up the long flight of stairs to reach the hotel... !!! ... did Mr Ang purposely book this hotel for this reason???? humph!!!... i even took him on the wrong route and had to walk one big round b4 we finally reach.... but good temper him din blame me at all.... =)

main auto door of the hotel....

see thru lift with marilyn monroe....

door to our room sweet room... =) ....

....a very yellow room (prefer the pink one with marilyn monroe though) to be shared with Mr 李小龙 .... hahaha... a very small room.... but damn comfy bed (i demand to have one such bed for my new house) and super powerful aircon (that make me sneeze non stop the whole morning).... and Mr Ang's favourite....

... the 37 inch TV.... makes me wonder...is this outing for the world cup finals or for our anniversary lo.... humph.... by the way, i won $26 for betting on a draw between spain and holland.... hahaha.... wanted to be special and unique in my betting decision really works.... =)


well provided toiletries; toothbrush, toothpaste, shower cap, cotton pad, cotton bud, comb etc and even....

L'occitance shampoo, hair conditional, shower gel and body lotion.... and auntie candy took all of them home.... oopx.... they wun reuse it anyway....

however, we couldnt use the bathtub as the metal thingy that prevents water from draining was forcefully removed by the maintenance guy after we called to say that the water in the tub dosen drain .... !!! ....

view from our room in the evening.....

we didnt know what we want for dinner so decided to just walk and see.... and it resulted in a walk from Chin Swee Road (where hotel re! is) to robertson quay to clarke quay and finally to Chinatown by foot.... that's 1.5 hours of walking before i finally get to eat 田鸡粥 @ 长城粥.... i was hot and sticky and sweaty and tired and grumpy....

Mr Ang suggested catching a movie after dinner as he thought it was too early to head back 'home' .... i reluctantly agreed and dragged myself to The Cathay to find out that there was no available show.... argh (for wasting my time and all the walking) + yeah (i can go back bathe then rest liao) .... hahahaha..... and it was another 1 hour walk home from clarke quay mrt.... another long story.... !!!... lazy to elaborate.... basically, just a lot of walking the whole night.... hahaha....

luckily got some chinese movie channels to kept us both entertained till the soccer match starts at a freaking 230am.... but it was such a boring game that i decided to just give up and sleep after 20 minutes at the game.... only to be awaken by Mr Ang....

Mr Ang: dear dear, dear dear... u won money leh.... it's a draw....
me: huh??? orh.....zzzzz.....
us monkeying around the next morning..... as usual.... hahaha.... how can we miss a shot with this legendary man....

a loving photo to end the celebration .... and to continue our journey together to our next....

Her thoughts....

zoom zoom zoom.... one year zoomed by .... just like that.... it's amazing that Mr Ang and I are still together despite the differences and even more amazing is that we are still as loving, if not, even more loving than when we first started.... =) ....

I m glad that we met, i m glad that he persisted, i m glad that i decided to give it a try... i just feel so pampered and loved everyday....

Mr Ang, thanks for all the hugs and kisses and assurances and jokes that make our relationship so happy everyday.... =)

His Thoughts......
one year jus flew past like a beam of light.... it is realli amazing on how we started from day 1 till now. no one gave us a chance to succeed, deemed us as sure to fail, but i know deep inside me, i will make this relationship works. instead of making our differences as a barrier to a successful relationship, we somehow have a stronger relationship due to our differences.
people said love is crucial in a relationship, but i believe, commitment, communication, hard work is equally impt to have a sweet, loving relationship. :)

really appreciate her presence in my life. thanks for making my life so sweet with ur name, ur actions, ur kisses and hugs. i love u dear. :)
