a tiffany engagement!
i loveeeeeeeeeee the side flowers by her pelamin. so gorgeous with dangling crystals...remind me of this! and the pics just gave me idea where to hang the DIY butterfly (which if u malas, u can get crystal butterfly from SSF)! pretty!
love the detailing at her veil too..i guess i'm bias, cos i love chiffon heeee.

Andai aku buta kan mata
Dapatkah kau mendengarkan jujurnya
Andai engkau tutup telinga
Dapatkah kau melihat keikhlasannya
Aku cinta bukan dibayang mata
Jauh dari bahasa
Aku cinta bukannya disengaja
Jauh dari wasangka
Memang cinta ada dalam jiwa kita
Andainya cinta itu buta
Dapatkah kau mengubah pesonanya
Andai mengalir air mata
Dapatkah kau membezakan jelingnya
Oh mengapa ada saksi yang tak memahami
Oh mengapa ada saksi yang disalah erti
Oh aku cinta
Oh jauh dari bahasa
Memang cinta ada dalam jiwa kita...
listen here :)

remember my post on white cake stand? SSF web still advertising rm58 price tag, but yesterday i only got them rm35. murah kan :) they can be nice dulang hantaran if u're looking for one too. tapi yang sesuai as dulang yang with plain design tu je kot hehe..
then we found cute blue container for table centerpiece/deco. quite besar and with stripes, selling for rm3 je, cheap lah compared to buying clear glass yang berat berpuluh2 ringgit tu. ade few colors to choose from, seriously the pink comel sangat! have to choose properly cos ade yang dah comot..
Sep 22, 2009
and this among my fave, i definitely choose this as main song if my nikah/reception taking place under canopy at night......unfortunately, mine will be during the day yang panas terik :P otherwise, the veteran guests must be the happiest, mengimbau nostalgia gitu..hehe...
Malam bulan dipagar bintang
Makin indah jika dipandang
Bagai gadis beri senyuman
Pada bujang idaman
Duhai kasih ingin dimanja
Dengan cumbuan mesra
Untuk pelipur lara
Penawar dik asmara
Malam bulan dipagar bintang
Tambah seri cuaca malam
Murni sungguh ciptaan Tuhan
Bulan bintang lampu alam
Andai kata bintang menyepi
Bulan tidak berseri
Malam menjadi sunyi
Tidak berseri lagi

i supposed to get all bridal mags that she borrowed months ago today. and today, none of my Ratu Sehari is returned!
i always had the feeling when things borrowed to someone else for too long, it's either u wont get them back or u're getting them not as what u wish..
my biggest dissapointment was, she didnt let me know earlier the mags tak cukup while on the way to my house :( pls understand, im really sensitive when comes to my wedding mags. i lend you my mags to help u out with your preparation (tho i didnt like the idea of letting your Indon designer to keep my mag for reference), so i hope u'll make way for my preparation too :(
i dont want your money, pls pls i just want my mags back :((((
i know it's bad to feel this way, especially when Aidilfitri is coming in next few days. suppose we bermaaf-maafan, but now im no longer in the mood of doing so :(

one thing that i'm sure of, i wanted something with button yang banyak2 tu (i called them cosry-wannabes dress hehe). and nothing overboard, since it's for reception taking place at my home sweet home. the theme should be homey as possible :)
and below seems my favourite, humble one by Syomir Izwa. design of 2007.
i already had the lace. all i need is plain white chiffon for kain part. and i need the A-line too, to balance my wide hips :) without veil pun ok.

we then head to few boutiques, hunting tailor for our reception dress. walking to different buildings agak mencabar during ramadan hehe!
first boutique, SA like clueless why we're looking for them to tailor reception dress?
second boutique, nice dress & affordable rate but SA busy layan ppl looking for bj raya. what la.
third boutique, workmanship cost already beyond our budget..
fourth boutique closed!
fifth boutique. a designer, and amazingly cheapest of them all! include veil lagi (my earlier plan not to wear any for my penang reception, in case i change my mind..)
Sep 11, 2009
not-that-shaggy carpet for home sweet home rm199. jakel also promo rm175, but we malas to have parking hassle in Jln TAR during ramadhan.
we bought 2 pieces of white pot for our wedding deco later. for hujung main table deco? hmm
264, Ampang Park - 1st Floor
(take escalator & turn left)

also requested her contact no. for makeup artist in penang, suggested by abg Man earlier. hmm, esok-esoklah contact. tak semangat sgt, cos his result biasa je. hopefully price biasa-biasa too.
for nikah accessories, i'd always prefer pearl. Maya Karin also having one during her reception. tunggu dress nikah siap dulu, only then can decide. veil not included, this shop in ampang park selling pretty veil, and the color varies too...last resort if i cant find nice & cheaper one.

more options for 916 gold and selalu ade diskaun 5 ringgit! for perfect cut diamond, HOF of similar spec is cheaper than Lazare. HOF mostly disc 10%, u can get up to 15% in Bangsar branch, talk to Syahrunizam. their SA? hmm, double standard :( Habib Semua House mahal and they put HOF in torn box! this one SA told me for below 0.5c, better go for HOF since price not much diff from certified diamond. my friend had bad experience with their workmanship, but this may not apply to all i believe :) no custom made for platinum band. 75% diamond value for upgrade.

those honeymooning until Oct ni mmg best lah since it's low season...imagine rm750 nett for 4 nights package for 2 pax! since Feb is the peak season (in fact it's the best month to visit this place for their nice weather) so we had to pay extra surcharge skit, but still cheap compared to guaranteed-lowest-rate found on net.
cheaper hotel pun ade, but they mostly came with modern interior while us, prefer room with some touch of their culture and heritage. and this is best we could afford :)
since they couldnt discount any further, they agreed to upgade us to Suite (98sqm) with seaview, double the size of superior room (50sqm) f.o.c. =) tried some free massage too, tak sedap langsung dan sakit ;P
we then went for furniture hunting. our house is scheduled to complete coming december, but we decided not to move in walaupun closer to my office. im pretty comfortable renting at current place for convenience of free reading at MPH midvalley, LOL ;P so we'll furnish my rental place and today we looked out for affordable living room set. below is my fave catch among all..murah je hehe..
bantal-bantal kecil tu pun percuma hehe!
kemudian bergegas ke TR sunway for berbuka session with my samurian besties, Lion & Wesz :) it was great to catch up with each other again and yeah, i won the rib marathon again haha..to Wesz, enjoy your daddy-to-be life!
p/s : Shafaf, we wish you were there ;)
