bridemaids card

Will you be my Bridesmaid???

25 september 2010

me: dear dear, go into our wedding blog...
him: why leh?
me: go look at the counter...
him: orh, okay....
me: OUR WEDDING DATE IS LESS THAN A HUNDRED DAY AWAY leh...
him: yup...so are you excited??
me: yup yup...very... other to be married couples like got alot of things to do, how come we like got nothing to do ah???
him: hahaha.... isnt that good???

hmmm.....maybe i m too free??? ... no leh... i m definitely not free... plenty of school stuff to do actually...but totally no mood to do them on weekend leh.... so started on my wedding net surfing once more... to look for diy stuff that other "very free brides" do.... hahaha.... see whether is there anything to keep me entertained....

so chance upon these....

so cute....i likey this 1....
but as the number of 姐妹s and who will be my 姐妹 are not confirmed yet...this project is out... and i think sketching and cutting the dolls out is not my cup of diy too...the coloured paper i have at home looks abit too cheapo to be able to carry this style off too ....

so sweet....i likey this 2....
but i think abit too troublesome to cut out the letterings then pose to take photographs then need to develop the photographs before combining them together...then what if after the wedding, my 姐妹s throw this card away...then my face will be in the trash leh...

i likey this 3....
hahaha...but i m sure i m not a bridezilla.... in fact, i think i m one of the slackest bride around....
then also this one looks like some halloween invites instead.... hahahaha




somehow the easier bridesmaid cards all have a picture of a dress in front....
wonder why.....


26 September 2010:
came back from breakfast with Mr Ang and saw a happy message.... morning tuition postponed.... yippy... and since the 3A (Alfred, Angela & Alvin) were all watching "Herbie" in the living room... i joined them as well.... sibling bonding mah.... heee..... and also time for some diy....
presenting Candy's version of "Will You Be My Bridesmaid" card.... made according to the theme of wedding - candy colour- so hurry 姐妹们! booked the colour that you would be wearing on that day oh.... =)

the silver number '2' is actually a stylist cloth hanger if u din realised it....
friends would know that i have very limited art cells if they have known me since secondary school days... heee







妹妹chua has already booked this card and had actually chose the colour herself
.... if not, i would have made a pink or purple one instead of a black one....
and if u look closely enough...maybe u can see a faint cutting across the dress that indicated her "dress" preference for the wedding...
hint** she's just not a dress person...


green card has been chopped by xinying liao... =) ... someone whom rejected my 姐妹invite just last week saying that nobody ask a mummy already lady to be 姐妹 one... as if i care about such tradition lo.... silly girl... hahaha...

the happy part is ...the cost price for this project is only $2 for the felt flowers which i got from diaso to decorate my "Love Story" scrapbooks.... the foam craft material was left over from chunyang's proposal scrapbook project last june ... and the metalic bronze art paper were left over from school musical invites this year....

cathay + passion card

cathay + passion card = good good deal...

went to watch Legend of the Fist ...got our tickets at $7 each instead of $10 and on top of that we have our free mini pack popcorn.... but as both of us have craving for more popcorn... we bought the medium combo as well.... hahaha...so presenting our sinful saturday night treats....


just love to take photo of the mini popcorn... hahaha...cos it looks so small and whenever we are holding it, we will attract curious stare from others.....they have the "how come their popcorn so small one" kind of look.... heee...

and as if not sinful enough....we had kfc buddy meal with cheese fries for dinner.... think we gonna be a pair of 'pui pui' couple soon le.... hahahaha....

funny wedding quotes

... Funny Wedding Stuff ...

was surfing the net for personalised wedding stickers which i m thinking of getting to seal the plastic bags for the 'Sweet Corner" and maybe also to stick it onto the wedding favours which we had ordered for our guests... (Yes, i had ordered the cards liao... Yippy...arriving on 2nd October).. just happen to chance upon some funny bumper stickers as such...







and one thing leads to another... i started surfing for other funny wedding sayings....


"I love being married.
It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.

Marriage requires a person to prepare 4 types of "Rings":
Engagement Ring Wedding Ring, Suffering, Enduring
Marriage is the only war in which you sleep with the enemy."

... and some wedding comic ...

Jelly Making

Jelly Making

While revising the unit on 'matter' with Kartikraj for his CT2, we came across a recipe of jelly in his textbook. The question in the book was 'In what state is a jelly?' His question for me was, "Where can I buy the ingredients to make jelly?"

i didnt want to spend too much of our limited time on his question so i promised him that i would make some for him if he improves on his science results. Well, from a 60% for mid year, he scored 78.5% for his CT2 and even scored full marks for his MCQs (which also means he failed his paper 2) but anyway, a promise is a promise....

headed for cold storage one day and bought the ingredients... for the 'just in case i screw up the first time', i bought 2 packets of jelly mix instead....

Angela helped out in my first try with the apple favour jelly and it turns out well... kartikraj loves them... and so did Mr Ang.... this is like the very very rare times that i even stepped into the kitchen lo.... so they better be appreciative....which they did.... hahaha....

anyway, received a very sweet message from kartikraj's mum last night...

"Hi, thanks for the jelly u gave to karttik. din realised until today (3 days later). he was enjoying them quietly! only told me today! You are such a nice teacher! He is really motivated by you!"

That's the reason why i love being a tuition teacher... the one to one interaction... the catering to a child's learning habit... the one to one encouragement for that 2 hours per week can make a difference to a child's life...this is something unachievable in a school setting...

anyway, her message reminded me that i have another pack of jelly mix at home and since i m free today... might as well make it before the term starts... which i can forsee will be one that is super busy, super bitchy and super wayang.... yes, that's life for me in school now.... sianx...


step 1: inserting the nata de co co and fruit cocktail into the mould....

luv the flower ice cube mould....

Step 2: boiling the jelly mix - pineapple favour

stir stir stir....hot hot hot...

Step 3: pouring the boiled jelly mix into the mould...
step 4: creating a mess for kom (my super duper maid) to follow up... hahaha

wedding dance (not)

Wedding dance - NOT

i have wanted to watch STEP UP 3 since a few weeks back after so many ppl posted super positive review on facebook but Mr Ang has been really busy and stress with his school work so i also gave up the idea.... so was super happy when he suggested catching the movie at 1245 this afternoon at amk hub... =) ...

what's happier is that we used the passion card and got our tickets at only $7 each (usualy price $10) and a free pack of super teeny tiny popcorn (1/4 the original size)... =)



anyway, while watching this segment of the movie 


an idea struck me and hence the following conversation after the movie....

me : dear dear, do you think we can do the balloom dancing thingy at our wedding???

him: no


me : i think balloom dancing abit diffcult too... i dun think i can do all those turns and spins and head drops too... but u know, remember the facebook video about the wedding dance where the 姐妹 and 兄弟 dance in one 




him: no dance in.... so silly ...no....

me: but we know each other at double o leh, wouldn't a dance in be nice??? we can have retro music instead la and everyone just dance in la....


him: no


me: what song do u think is suitable for wedding and is retro??? dancing queen??? YMCA??? mambo no. 5???


him: "dying inside to hold you"...


me : oh...yayaya...that would be nice.... so we gonna dance in??? second march in???


him: no...


me : but u just suggested the song...u know u know


(i hum to the tune of "dying inside to hold you" and did his infamous shaky dance)


him: no....cannot la....so embarrassing ...i dun want....no...no....no...


woah...first time he rejected so strongly to my request leh.... hahaha.... but it was so fun teasing him and trying to make him agree to dance in....


actually i also dun dare lo...but i think it would be fun and entertaining and memorable for all....but provided the whole group of u ppl (especially the 姐妹 and 兄弟) dance in with me la....


continue surfing and found more videos.... really admire their courage.... =) they seems to be having so much fun....








diy checklist



DIY - is it necessary???

so to those who (especially xinying) are helping me with the many many diy stuff, do knock my head and ask me to wake up my idea if some of the diy are not neccessary or too 麻烦 to do k?

wedding heels

...Wedding Shoes...



criteria that i looked for when i selected this pair of shimmery white heels as my wedding shoes is that it must be a pair of heels that i will wear even after the wedding...so cannot be too bling bling or too 夸张 and of cos cannot be too expensive la....


but sometimes i do find it too plain and simple as i browse thru the many many wedding websites and saw how elaborate other brides' heels are.... then i saw the following.... and it sparks off some diy ideas oh.....

instead of the pink sparkles studs at the base of the heels, maybe i can have rainbow colours studs in yellow, orange, blue, green, pink either neatly arranged in rows or in random.... to be inline with my bright colour bejewel theme

(Xin Ying, i need your suggestion here.... msn me on ur idea k?)


then i also want this beneath mine and Mr Ang's wedding shoes.... heee.... so cute.... although not many people will get the chance to see it, but i think it's quite fun... wahaha....

Mr Ang is a super chiongster.... he's already chionging for his tutorial in the first week of his uni life... going to school early (b4 lesson start) and staying late (after lesson finish) to revise on his own.... but being a sweet boy who will spend time with me despite his busy schedule, he has been bringing me out to chill every sunday night if possible... and our favourite chill place is the starbuck at civic centre.... =)

Mr Ang trying to explain to me about electric charges, conductivity, electric field, current density, surface area....

"u know, this electic charges (pencil) moves here and collide into other particles (his hand) and got reflected to another direction".....


was i paying attention??? hahaha.... all i can say is... i did entertain him abit here and there la.... but most of the time, i was in my own 'wedding dreaming state' (above)

I m a model today


... I m a model today ...
Last week thru msn,

zhuan: this coming wed teachers' day right?

me : yup yup

zhuan: u free?

me : yup yup

zhuan: then can help me with a photoshoot?

me : huh? me?

zhuan: yup. you. very difficult to find ppl to do photoshoot on weekday... me trying to find all my teacher friends.... so u okay???

me : sounds fun... okay lo..... =)
and that's how i was bestowed with the chance to be a model for the October issue of 女友 magazine which zhuan works as the fashion editor... =)... of cos not the paid kind of professional model la... is the passer-by kind of model... free one... hahaha....

i was informed to report at 35 hamilton road, #02-01 (photo studio) at 11am for the photoshoot... and oh boy, i was late.... 5 - 10 minutes late due to the 2 traffic accidents that jammed up the cte and the road outside bishan mrt... but luckily, i was still slightly earlier than the make up artist, the hair stylist, the fashion art director & his assistants (2) and the photographer & his assistant... din know that to take one photo shoot, i need to be "prepared" by 7 people lo.... and is that kind of good looking, stylish ppl oh .... 真的是让我大开眼界... abit 不知所错...i felt like a 村姑 in my bling bling flats and retro tube dress....

first, the make - up artist sat me down and helped to doll up my face...besides trying her very best to camouflage my horrible eyebags and dark circles, she also have to camou a super uncooperative big pimple which chooses to pop up next to my nose the night before the photoshoot... sianx....

anyway, she gave me a tip to reduce eyebags.... that is not to drink water after 8pm.... even if it's one night... she claims that effects can be seen oh ... i think can give it a try leh since she is currently the make up guru who is dishing out make up and facial care tips on FM100.3 oh.... and i likey the make up she gave me... very natural... not those super 夸张 type..is really 化妆 kind and not the 伪装 kind of make up... hahaha

second up was the hair stylist ... within 5 - 10 minutes, under his hairdryer, his comb and some hair spray, i was ready for the photoshoot... simple and nice...i likey also... i think i look quite good after the hair and face transformation... hahahaha...

third up was the fashion art director assistant... she had mixed and match my outfits and had ironed them while i was doing my make up and hair... she handed me a pair of super tight fitting jeans, a black tube and a dark vest to try on.... then added a chucky necklace (her own) and 2 heavy bangles as accessories... and not to mention the scary super high 4 inch strappy heels....
then all 6 (minus the make up artist) brought me to one of the small roads near the studio to take the outdoor shoot... really felt like a model lo... got photographer taking photos of me while instructing me on my poses, hair stylist with hair spray in hand, ever ready to adjust any naughty hair that is out of the way, fashion assistant with tissue in hand to wipe my sweat and to carry my shoes... hahaha.... then ppl in the area were all looking at us lo... so embarrassing yet so fun.... =)

then a second change of clothes.... a pair of high waist short, white long sleeved shirt to be matched with the same vest and heels....

second photoshoot at the same place but need to walk ...take bigger strides and swing your arms more, the photographer kept reminding me.... i shy la... hahaha... but i still think i did a good job for an untrained model... hahaha....

that's it.... all done within 2 hours.... had fun and that's my once in a life time experience to 'work' with professional make up artist, hair stylist, photographer and fashion art director..... now waiting for the fashion editor (zhuan) to call me up for an interview regarding the clothings and to wait till 3rd week of september to get a copy of the october issue of 女友 ....so exciting.... hahaha....
i was shy and scared of being labelled as a mountain tortoise, so i didnt dare to take any "in the process" photos on my own... but i was busy snapping away while waiting for the bus home.... heee...

i likey the look - sweet sweet one... just like my name... heee
