last weekend

i took one day leave & spent my recent weekend in my hometown, visiting abah who just had a minor surgery. alhamdulillah, he's getting better :) i promised myself not to discuss any wed prep last visit, considering abah's condition. but abah was the one beria & initiated the discussion since my brother too getting engaged this coming dec. i still remember last raya when my bro asked my mum to look out for engagement ring. ibu & myself were clueless, until ibu finally said "pi lah beli dgn dia, biaq dia pilih. kan dia yang nak pakai.." i nodded to bro & smile, very much agreed to ibu's suggestion...

back to my prep, abah will hire Pakcik Brahim for catering. he used to be our caterer for few of our family events, but yang peliknya, so far i tak penah rasa his food pun hehe...for canopy & props etc, P.Brahim will outsource to other vendor since he only do catering. abah specified his canopies, chairs, layout etc. i like them all, except no. of canopies proposed which seems sedikit for the guest numbers :( nvm, raya haji nanti we'll meet up P.Brahim - will seek for his advise & let him talk to abah should he think the same too :) btw P.Brahim, if u cant find any white+clean+tegang canopy, im fine with whatever you have hehe...

gambar hiasan - suke white setting mcm ni :P

moving on to doorgift, abah agreed to paper pouch yeay! few aunties called up mum & now she proposing for sweets/chocs/agar2 kering as fillers. NOOOOO...i want my eggs..i want my eggs. i know eggs would require last minute job, but pleaseee, the hassle just once-off k....glad that abah's on my side :D

for bunga pahar, we'll buy 200pcs ready made at Jln TAR nanti, ibu nak sangat. my decorator will help to add some deco - she said cheaper than upah her to do a new one...ooo ok :) for bunga pahar hantaran, tradition from fiance-a-proud-johorian, i'll DIY..dah lama sangat perap idea ni & the steps pun sonang je :)

for my 1-tier cake, ibu will order fondant from her friend - subject to outcome of my bro's hantaran cake this dec hehehe :P in-laws pun dah kasi duit to place booking for bertandang cake..but i told fiance for whatever reason do not spend that 4-digits given solely for cake.. membazir, married friends pun remind no guest would stay just to eat the towering cake...we already contacted this vendor for quo, and hopefully in-laws would agree to go for design simplicity too..

btw, fiance & family had 2nd food testing from this caterer. in-laws dah approve, we'll meet up with Syawal this weekend to discuss further...in-laws will decide on menu later. we also praying can tukar the chair ribbon to organza instead of striking fuschia satin hehe..and we dont want any pink table top too...alas meja pun dah cukup...

tq alena! tulah, northern brides like us have to make do with apa yg ada kan :D

jam, bunga pahar ni version malas..not the one with lidi tu..sure korg gelak tgk outcomenya nanti :P

riena, bunga pahar budget yg i berkenan tu selling at Semua House..nak add tag/simple ribbon je if not nampak togel hehe. we tempah bunga pahar for bertandang je...utk perenjis :D i selalu confuse ape diff arabian & high-top canopy hehehe

betul phia, susah giler to locate :P khareyan one of vendor yg i know ada this type, yg lain mostly their arabian canopy got renda kan :D organza nicer but subject to they allow me to tukar with similar price hehehe

senang kan farhanna, the fiancee pun dapat what she wants and takde lah case MIL sentap cos bakal menantu tak pakai cincin yg dia belikan hehe...
