gate crashing

...Gate Crashing...

Mr Ang and his gang of 兄弟 arrived punctually for the difficult challenge ahead ... to boost their confidence, they just had to do the traditional "Huat Ah!" ... =)
(luv their colourful shirts)





and what was their difficult challenge leh??? to get the pretty bride (me) within the timeframe allocated la... hahahaha....







Station 1 : Warm Up
kelvin, Mr Ang's gym kaki, 义不容辞, 脱了衣服, 就地七十下 push up .... 对他来说是轻而易举, small case ah....




Station 2 : Breakfast
酸酸的酸杆冰




甜甜的可乐




苦苦的凉茶




还有美美的姐妹, charlene,




送上辣辣的 wasabi 饼干






Station 3 : Smooth & Silky
my Mr Ang has very hairy legs.... so i thought why not help him wax it off??? and since his wifey to be (me) is named Candy.... let's use candy shaped wax paper then... wahahaha.... =P


QC by the 姐妹s to ensure that the wax paper is attached properly and securely....




Mr Ang's hairy legs with 2 candies....




dear, i can feel your pain..... sayang sayang sayang oh.... hahahahahaha....




Mr Ang having the joy to help his 兄弟 do some hairy legs trimming...




they are really a bunch of hairy 兄弟 lo....






Station 4 : Shake your bum bum
but first, put on your costume first.... =)
Mr Ang seems happy with his costume design.... =)


it's not considered gate crashing for a couple who met in double o if there's no dance component right??? presenting Mr Ang and his pole, Yong Guan.... =)




looking at their laughters, i think they seems to enjoy this station the most ... =)





Station 5 : Ice Treatment
vincent, labelled the most-gan-ho 兄弟 by the 姐妹s, volunteered for almost all the tasks, including this, finding my ring in a pail of ice... they could have escape this ice treatment if Mr Ang had insisted that I dun wear accessories one leh... hahahaha...




wayne trying his luck at the ice treatment station too...




look at Xin Ying's disgusted face when they saw the Thai Baht and Rupiah in the red packet... anyway i was officially sold by the 姐妹s for S$288...




Mr Ang making his declaration to hug and kiss me everynight before i sleep... i only remember this last sentence as the rest are not important to me... hahaha....





my cute cute prince charming in his heart heart underwear... =)






finally - the one knee kneel






a kiss to seal the end of the tekan session... heee.... 辛苦了哦... muack muackz...







with the help of the 兄弟s, Mr Ang 终于抱得美人归... =)





and thanks to the troupe of 姐妹s for not letting it be a easy task for them... hahahaha

make up artist of the day

Make Up Artist - Miss Lee Zhuan

we woke up at around 7am and immediately zhuan started her mission on making me pretty pretty for the day... =)... although not a professional make up artist, she is able to give me what i want - a look that is simple and not too much of colours.... i kept emphasizing that she needs to make me look sweet and young to match my ah boy... and to cover up my scary dark eye rings..... hahahaha... and i would say she is really really good... =)


nude colour range to be use on my eyes...








serious attitude

Wedding Photographer & Videographer

Wedding Photographer & Videographer

many many thumbs up for our gang of videographers and photographers...





3 - 2 - 1.... can go home sleep lo....a red faced Mr Ang, Li Xi and a very happy me...
We are indeed a lucky couple cos one of Mr Ang's good friend (Li Xi)'s brother-in-law is a free lance wedding day photographer... so we gotten the deal for a whole day actual day photography at only $400... and to further sweeten the deal... he brought along another photographer and a videographer... =)
Just collected the photos and videos from them so went to their company website to have a look and this is what they wrote about us and our special day... =)

"2nd January 2010, a day after the New Year’s Celebration. We were shooting a couple (kok ming & candy) who met each other in Double O (Singapore): looking forward to 2 party freaks with tinted hair but when we met the couple, it was quite the opposite.

Candy is gentle and soft spoken. Kok Ming was sporty. They were very easy going and didn’t have any special requests for the shot. It was totally not what we expected from the clubbing couple.

The Wedding day itself was build on a very tight and precise timeline. But Kok Ming’s elder brother made everything run ultra smoothly, he should be commended for his dedication for making everything click. So was Li Xi (Kok Ming’s good friend) who drove us around and assist with everything possible and allow us to concentrate on the shot.


With the ultra tight timeline, we had only 3 hours to finish up the Videography & Photography SDE (Same day edit) and travel to the restaurant for the ROM at 5pm. It was a huge challenge and we are so excited to share their SDE
."

so funny lo...they expected us to be typical chiongster with tinted hair.... hahaha.... i bet they thought we have ear studs all over too...or worse, i was carrying a ball since my mr ang is so young.... oopx....
anyway, the video

wedding songs

...March-in Songs...
i have always wanted to use Jolin's and David's 今天你要嫁给我 as my wedding song the moment this song is released, way way way before i know Mr Ang and of cos way way way before i know i m gonna be married... hahaha... i just felt that it's such a sweet, cute and appropriate song for a wedding, especially my wedding... heee...
so i told Mr Ang that he can choose any song for the first march in while i will use Jolin's and David's 今天你要嫁给我 for the second march-in... =)
he din really stress over which song to use as he has many many songs which he can chose from... but a visit to peony jade with agnes made us change our plans... she say we can only use originals... =(.... or we can choose from the list she has.... double =(
i sort of mentioned about this problem during the 姐妹s gathering and this problem is solved... thanks to charlene and zhuan... charlene reminded me that i have gotten a cd on english love songs the xmas before and zhuan borrowed the chinese cd from her cousin...
and so i have these for my march-ins... =)... so blessed to have resourceful 姐妹s...

for the First march in ...






for our second march in ...

The good things about being Mrs Ang

The Good Things about being Mrs Ang
4 weeks have passed since i ditched my 'Chua' surname and adopted the 'Ang' surname... (and i have yet to collect my wedding photos) ... humph!!!....
i have officially moved to hougang...currently staying with Mr Ang and his family... dominic (younger brother) has kindly shifted to kok yong (older brother)'s room so that i can share the room with Mr Ang ...
but as we are both lazy to get a double bed cos we dun wanna have to move it to the new house which is 2 blocks away a few months later, we ended up squeezing on Mr Ang's single bed ...hahaha... and this will continue until our house is done up...say around end march or early april bah....
it's a new experience staying with the Angs as this family is totally different from the Chuas... first of all... they have no maid... so everything at home is done by 洪妈妈... but the cleaniess and neatness check officier is actually 洪爸爸... and both of them together is what i term the 二十四孝父母...
example of a typical day at home with the Angs,
  • 洪妈妈/洪爸爸 will take turns to wake kok yong up for work while i wake my Mr Ang...
  • 洪妈妈/洪爸爸 will take turns to prepare breakfast (coffee & bread) for the 2 sleepy heads
  • kok yong will drive my Mr Ang to school on the way to work while 洪妈妈/洪爸爸 and I go back to sleep
  • But before sleeping, 洪爸爸 will do his routine spot check of the house and make sure everything is tidy and neat.. else he will pack and arrange and put everything in place before he goes back to sleep... what do i mean by putting everything neatly leh... he will stack all the plates and pots that were washed at dinner time into the cupboards, roll up my lappy charger wire and placed them on the study table etc etc... he's a neat freak but he dosen nag when we are abit messy.... he wil ljust make sure he tidies our messiness for us... i likey him... hahaha.... but i wil also 自动 la... i try to observe what he tidies up and i try to put all my things neatly so that he dosen have to tidy up my things for me... abit paiseh to have my father-in-law tidying up after me lo...
  • i usually wakes up around 8-9+... by this time, 洪妈妈 will have waken up and getting ready to go to work, she is a part time staff at NTUC till end feb... sometimes she will make honey water for me, pass me newspaper and then we will chitchat a little as i stay stoned and prepare to go to work too...
  • i will usually reached home around 8+ at night then there will be hot hot dinner waiting... cos it's the Ang's policy that everyone has a hot hot dinner... how is that possible leh??? 洪妈妈's dishes are usually very simple such as boiled brocolli, fried eggs etc... so it's possible for her to cook in small portion for everyone whenever that someone comes home... and she makes it a point to heat up the soup for everyone too...
  • then i will help with the dishes, a chore which 洪妈妈 refused to let me do initially cos my mum had told her that i dun do housework one... and it's a culture to just leave your dishes on the table for 洪妈妈 to clean up after a meal... told u they are 二十四孝父母 lo....
  • after which 洪妈妈 will cut some fruits for everyone
  • then 洪妈妈 will check if everyone has bathed before she start washing her clothes... this is something very special to me... cos she washes clothes after 1030pm everynight... hahaha.... and initially, she hand wash all my clothes... and i only realised it after 10 days... =P... i went up to her to ask if it's because girls clothes cannot be washed together with the guys' clothes??? she say no, she say that she is afraid that my clothes are expensive clothing and that putting them into the washing machine will result in them expanding.... wahahaha... we had a good laugh when i told her all my clothing are less than $20 each and my t - shirts are usually less than $10 each.... by all means, wash it in the washing machine.... haiyo... the Ang family is just such a nice family that i cant help falling in love with the parents too lo... i just feel so fortunate to be part of them... =)
  • lights out is usually approx 11 - 12pm for me now... and i m the earliest one to head off to bed... =p

a few more reasons for me to love the Ang's family:

1) after 2 months of year end holiday, my sport shoes for the last 2 years plus decided to call it quit.... so in the dump it went, dig dig dig and found my the other pair of sport shoes which i seldom wear... puma one oh... and within a week, it decided to open its big mouth (the sole came off)... and on the night where i was asking if there's any cobbler in the area, 洪爸爸 took out a can of shoe glue and a block of sandpaper and part time as my cobbler... =)... so nice of him.... and he even check my shoes every other day to ensure that the sole remained attached to the shoes and even did a re-mend 2 days later when he saw that the tip was coming off again... so touchy touchy touchy.... how can i not likey the Ang family lo... =)

2) it's happy family every day at the Angs family... there's alot of communication and update about each others work or school everyday.... everyone knows about almost everyone colleagues / friends / schoolmates by name and the things that they do... =)... i enjoy all these conversation every night and it's so fun laughing at the things that happens ...they always make it sound so funny and exciting... =)

Batam Spa Trip with the IVP team
reached home at 2+am the night before...slept around 315am and woke up at 630am to meet the rest of the team and their associates at 8am at habourfront.... the lack of sleep resulted in a pair of sleepy us....








look how scary my dark eye rings made me look... ='(




an energetic bunch of people despite the lack of sleep.... i m so amazed by them... i m like more than half dead on the first day.... i will just nap at every possible sitting position... total no energy to participate in any of their activities such as banana boating, kayaking and bowling.... =(


so while the girls were enjoying their banana boating and kayaking, we slacked at the jetty and be entertained by ian.... he's super entertaining lo.... hahaha

after which we went for a bowling session where Mr Ang scored a 70++.... it's his first experience at bowling.... can u believe that??? hahaha...and his teammates were all laughing at him cos they say he throw the bowling ball machiam like an ah beng like that.... hahaha....

more info about the resort can be found at http://www.batamspavilla.com/packages.html .... this is my 4th trip there and i would say i enjoy the massage very very much... =) .... but other than that.... batam is a very boring place with nothing much to do...they dun even have a beach for us to nua about... hahaha.... so my advice is.... go in the afternoon, enjoy the 90 minutes massage, have dinner then slack abit then sleep....wake up the next morning for the 60 minutes massage, have lunch then can go home liao.... =)
