picture worth thousand words..or thousand ringgits?

how much to spend for capturing this once-in-a-lifetime event? definitely we can tolerate on other things during the BIG day, but perhaps not on the wedding piccies.cos in the end, the piccies gonna last anyway! i'm not really sayinn' that we need to spend lavishly on photographers, but at least to get a package with a reasonable price without compromising the quality of finishing is already in your priority list!

got some quotations for our wedding, both for kl & penang :) for me, i wont go beyond rm1.5k for an event and it must at least satisfies for 4-5hrs coverage, 10x12 storybook album & min 300piccies in DVD..and last but not least, editing quality hee! some photos just lose the 'original & live' touch due to over-editing, so the homework is to always check their fotopages before calling!! some fotopages 'unintentionally' reveal how they improved from their prev work, right? so girls (since we're the species who always get excited about weddings), smart-shopping and decide!!

Yes, good thing doesnt come cheap (esp in KL) but trust me --- with so-called endless efforts of browsing-and-quoting exercise with a mix of sweet bargaining, there definitely IS! (even for talk-of-the-town photographers hee..)

we're done with the theme.left the colors & we need to think of at least FOUR,people! here we go; starts of with engagement, solemnization & finally, both receptions! hopping from fotopages to next, flipping mags like thousand times & still the conclusion : I JUST LOVE WHITE!! haha.tapi macam melampau pulak if all majlis in white kan? pening jugak when comes to choosing color ni, esp for those blessed with melanins like me..the colors are VERY limited & poor my fair dotty for having to bear with this as well...mcm mangsa keadaan la kuang3

ok, enough complaining my imperfection.i finally made up my mind (and dotty like know nothing until now), i should play around with pastels (ok, now i mean we).
  • purple & generous of soft pink'll live up my simple fairytale-theme engagement
  • whitey cream for akad nikah
  • soft turqoise for (bride) reception to cool off those hot & sunny day in penang
  • whites for bertandang & no guest should outshine us with another whiteeee plis plis..~

dotty agreed.yeeeeeeha!! can now check out for nice favor, dress, dais & gubahan for matching :D

a wedding masterpiece

From This Moment On by Shania Twain (Love the song so much!)

I do swear that I'll always be there.
I'd give anything and everything and I will always care.
Through weakness and strength, happiness and sorrow,
for better or worse, I will love you with every beat of my heart

From this moment life has begun

From this moment you are the one
Right beside you is where I belong
From this moment on

From this moment I have been blessed
I live only for your happiness
And for your love I'd give my last breath
From this moment on

I give my hand to you with all my heart
Can't wait to live my life with you, can't wait to start
You and I will never be apart
My dreams came true because of you

From this moment as long as I live
I will love you, I promise you this
There is nothing I wouldn't give
From this moment on

You're the reason I believe in love
And you're the answer to my prayers from up above
All we need is just the two of us
My dreams came true because of you

From this moment as long as I live
I will love you, I promise you this
From this moment
I will love you as long as I live
From this moment on

roses are red

I never liked roses, not even on Valentine's or anniversary.Dotty kate i pelik haha.But somehow bile dah selalu search on weddings ni, i started to fall in love with ROSES, especially white & red roses. They really speak LOVE.
I always love English theme wedding.White dress.Candle & white roses like everywhere.....................

Next - discuss with Dotty.He pretty liked the idea of English theme and now we both berebut nak that theme for our side hahaha.In the end, we feel that "ape salahnye 2-2 side English theme kan?" His side will be a bit western while mine will be traditional but still engaged with English concept in term of hantaran, pelamin etc. Pelik tapi benar hihi. (Dotty, color xleh same yer...)

Engagement pun same la.Senang kan.If possible,nak modify skit kasi nmpk fairytale but yet, still SIMPLE.

Hunting for penggubah hantaran & pelamin for above begins, not forgotten those cash counting *wink & headache*

Wish me a fruitful hunting! Will share in the blog later :D

my best friend's wedding

"Akum babe.majlis nikah 7 june ni.sanding 15/11. boleh dtg tak? he he"

Shima's message and me? Of course I'll be there - it's your BIG day anyway!tears.
My shoulder to cry on back in SAMURA, besides Shafaf.

7 june hmm mcm ku kenal date ni.haha her birthday.ces kene bawak 2 hadiah lah ni yek?
Takpe, for you I will cewah. Akan ku kumpulkan semua hulubalang kita utk sesame topup adiah ko yer :D

steps of bliss

Just celebrated my 24th last january. And hmm, "bile nak kahwin?" now crowned as top-asked qs for birthday girl of this age (dan yang sewaktu-dengannya).As usual, they will get this "muke badak" feedback.

Last time my plan was to get married by 24, but then things didnt work out as I wish (sob..) Dotty just started working, and neither of us carried "Hilton" surname *sigh*- so these simply justify we need some time to stable financially (and emotionally) before we happily hook-up. Tapi sampai bile ye?

Few days after our 6th anniversary, tetibe je rase macam nak check this date in 2009 & 2010(berangan nak make it as our wedding date) and woohoo both years jatuh on weekend (saturday & sunday).Date tu rahsie la kan nanti mesti korg nak jugak haha..tapi confirm not-typical-10-10-10 but still favourite to those who appreciate it :)

Dotty agreed with the date, but only YES to 2010. And now the journey of a bride-to-be begins..


first daisy to poppin'

Finally, my very-own blog is out hee, but just dedicated for my journey of becoming "ratu sehari". ok, no to my childhood-dreaming-bride cos financially it seems like no way (haha, you can now guess how 'dreamy' was this kiddie).
