invites

...Wedding Invites...




...customised wedding invites.....
designed by mr ang's cousin, yong xiang kor kor (bryan)

in a unique shade of glittery blue with
white clouds on the cover and white swirls all over....

mr ang and i look as if we are 谈情说爱-ing on the clouds hor???

the invites comes with a map...
so there's no reason anyone can be late for the wedding because anyone loses their way k???

i really want the wedding to start early so that we can finish the celebration early and can all go home to sleep early k???

i m really worried that my energy level cannot sustain the whole day of high energy level activities...

the colourful ink pad was Mab's which i 占为己有... hahaha... while the cute couple rubber stamp and black ink pad were from Xin Ying... she had used it for her wedding and now it's my turn... =)

.... tatatata....
the cutely decorated envelopes to be sent out to mr ang's friends....

as for my friends, please wait for a while more k???
mr ang is a little ka chiong so i have to do his first ah.... hahahaha...

and i really dun have the energy to do more than 15 a day....

i m a super low productive worker....

by the way, if you are those who will throw away the invite,
please tell me NOT to give you the invite k???
hahahaha....why leh???....
cos if mr ang finds out, he will be super 心痛 as each of the card had cost him $1.80 to be printed...

as i strongly believe that the wedding involves both of us in every aspect, i refused to be the only one doing all the work... so while i stamped and decorated the envelopes and filled in the names, i insisted that mr ang had to help out....


presenting the slotter & packer.... =)



Day 2 Challenge: The Meaning Behind my Blogger Name

Day 2 Challenge (A week later):

The Meaning Behind My Blogger Name


I'm called Candy Chua.... not by choice....

The name was given by my mum who named herself Honey.... (*.*!!!)

and is registered on my birth certificate...


used to hate the name as i was always being teased for it... still remembered on my first day as a transferred student to marymount convent, class 1B in sept 1988... the whole class burst out laughing when i wrote my name on the board upon the request of the teacher... ( T.T )




and i'm always the hot favourite to be asked upon to answer questions in the first few weeks of school every year... i guess teachers just love my name given that it's just so eye catching and easy to pronoun bah...




but i have grown to love my name as it's easy to remember and gives me an excuse when i want to act all sweet and cute ... hahaha... but i guess i will be using my chinese name when i reached 40??? imagine an auntie called candy.... can faint lo....




Anyway, having such a sweet name comes with even sweeter pet names:

"tang tang (糖糖), tang guo (糖果), sweet sweet" are just to name a few...


i chose tangtang-land as my blogger name cos "land" to me means this blog is my land, my territory to write anything about what i want....


not tangguo-land cos it's not a blog selling sweets and definitely has nothing to do with sweets...

not sweetsweet-land cos i m not that kind of sweet sweet girl and also dun want other ppl to laugh at me for having such a girly and eeeeeeeeeee blogger name... hahaha...

Day 1 Challenge - A Recent Pix of us and 15 facts about us

30 Days Blog Challenge - Day 1

Saw this challenge on xiaoxin's blog (http://xinzz.blogspot.com/) and thought that it was kind of interesting... so since i m in the mood to blog today cos absolutely no mood to do work and with mr ang back in hougang and lala at her prom.... i m home alone.....so bored....yawn!!!


anyway, Day 1 Challenge is actually "A Recent Picture of You and 15 Interesting Facts About Yourself" but since this blog was initially started as our wedding blog and me being extra and like to be different, decided to change it to


"A Recent Picture of Us and 15 Interesting Facts About Us"

taken at the esplanade when we bought my jazz dancers to watch


"Sleeping Beauty" on 2/10/2010, Saturday



here goes the interesting facts:


1) we met at double o...he was with his friends while i was with mine and he came over to "make friend"... =)


2) he googled for "primary school in yishun" (cos i told him i was a primary school teacher in yishun) and gotten my full name and found me on facebook... =D


3) our first date was 3 weeks after we first met... =]


4) and we go steady one week later... =P


5) he proposed on xmas eve 2009 - 5 months after we go steady...;o


6) and we started preparing for our wedding in may 2010...


7) our first wedding date was 18 dec 2010 but it turned out that he has exam on that morning and 3 more exams the following week... =s


8) so we rescheduled it to 2 jan 2011, which is like in 1.5 months time (jittery) ...


9) we are poles apart in certain areas; i sleep more than 8 hours a day, he only sleeps between 3 - 5 hours a day... i hate exercising, he's an exercise freak, he runs marathons, he swims, he gyms, he plays badminton competitively while i nuazzz... i study to pass while in school, he chiongz for excellence... he's a coffee addict while i m a fan of soft drinks... i'm messy, he's a neat freak... i have straight teeth (thanks to braces) while his teeth are super crooked...hahaha...

11) and we both love bejewel blitz.... we will compete with each other every week to see who is higher up on the scoreboard and who gets more gold coins during the daily spin...

angela's prom

A Pretty Angela
today is angela's prom event... both of us were pretty excited over it since a few months back when she decided to attend the function... did some trial and error with the usual prom dresses and find that they are totally not suitable for her ... so decided to go against the norm and dress her in something which she finds it more comfortable and confident in ... the cute chic look we called it... =)

total damage:

hairband - rm$5.90, pants - rm$49.90, vest - rm$10 (sponsored by mummy)

blouse with chain - s$49.90, shoes - s$25.90 (sponsored by me)

how i wished i had bought everything in msia lo.... =(





anyway, with michelle phan on youtube





and the limited make up that mummy and i have

i created this.... =)...damn proud of myself la...

A trip to CitySquare - Msia

A trip to City Square - Msia

Went shopping in msia again with angela and along tag mr ang. he had always assumed and concluded on his own that msia is a very unsafe place and had always rejected my suggestion to hang out at citysquare at JB.

so when i told him i needed to go to city square to transfer RM$60 to the msian buyer for the bracelets i bought for my 姐妹s thru msian maybank atm, he almost freaked out... although he had a test and was super kan chiong about it the following week, he insisted on accompanying me in no matter how safe the journey into citysquare i assured him to be. ...luckily joyce was free to pei me in....

shopping in msia is so so so fun.... especially when the exchange rate is getting so much better.... rm$2.35 for every s$1 for the 1st trip in and rm$2.37 for every s$1 for this trip....anyway, the trip in again was to get angela's vest which we din get the previous round... lala and i had a great time shopping around while mr ang studied at coffeebean.... he's such a geek lo.... hahaha.... but he did join us towards the end and had lots of fun lo... he's totallly converted... on the way home, he said,"dear, can we come in more often after my exam?".... =P




smuggled in some gums for the 3As at home (Alfred, Angela and Alvin)



rm$19


rm$19 also ......i think i can give up my online shopping habit liao... =)
Mr Ang bought a mouse at rm$19....
he had smashed his mouse just the night before!!!
hot tempered man he is... humph!!!
rm$15.... the reason why he went shopping with us...from the game he plays, i conclude that he could be a very faithful man... cos he only plays one type of game since young... soccer games.... hahaha


rm$69 for 2 (s$14.50 each)...another way to conclude that he could be a faithful man... 95% of his tops are polo tees... just different in colour... dun believe, check out all the older post with his photos... confirm + chop that he's in polo tee in 95% of the photos.... hahaha....
Mr Ang's new shoes


Angela's new shoes....

cheap cheap cheap

completed ring bearer

Ring Bearer

has been looking for a heart shape glass plate as my ring bearer since july when i first received the crystal bears from mummy and oh boy.... i m just so lucky.... found the perfect plate at diaso yesterday too.... hahaha.... i am so so so in love with diaso lo....

added some red heart heart made with the punch kit that i gotten from school, attached my 2 lovely bride and groom crystal bears and tatatata.... my completed ring bearer.... luv it much much.... simple and unique...the one and only one in the whole wide world.... =)


so why a plate instead of a ring pillow as my ring bearer leh???
firstly, i find ring pillow too too too common le... secondly, they are expensive, costing more than $10 each... thirdly, i classified it as a one time usage wedding item which will end up as a display item with no practical use after the rom ceremony.... i really dun see myself tying my ring onto the ring pillow every night before i sleep lo....
actually, the use of mini birdcage as ring bearer is gaining popularity from the wedding blogs and forums i been reading.... but mini bird cage are equally expensive if not, more expensive than a ring pillow... and also, i have yet to come across a mini birdcage i see suitable and economy enough to be my ring bearer oh...
and also, i really really like the crystal wedding bears that mummy gave me... and being me, someone who likes being different from the norm...i like my things to be not the same too... and lastly, this personalised diy ring bearer of ours only cost mr ang $2.... hahaha... i m such a catty catty bride oh....
and i can see us using our ring bearer even after our wedding... it will be placed near our bed to house our rings every night.... so convenient for us to slip our rings off our fingers and just place them onto the glass plate... no tying required.... hahaha.... =)
