Collected my gown yesterday...
The taxi driver that drove me back was so funny.. kept talking to me throughout the journey and congratulated me on my marriage when he saw the gown i'm holding. Guess what he said?
Got such 老公, i oso dont want wahahahaha.
Waiting.. counting down...
It's been a long walk.. 5 years to be exact and from tomorrow onwards, we will continue to walk together with a common goal and aim in our lives.
No longer will it be me, myself, I and MY MONEY but we, ourselves, us and OUR MONEY. hahah Heard from friends that marriage life is rather different and it's good to be prepared for the little little habits of your partners that you may not experience before marriage. *yeah, i still cant stand the 24/7 playing computer games part"
I'm prepared for it. Through these 5 years, i have witness the changes to this guy. From a very bo chup guy, he turned into a very caring and very accomodating guy who really took the effort to understand my needs and feeling. I believed he witness my changes too. From a very quick tempered girl who wants 80% of his attention, i became more independent and more patient now. Even if we do quarrel, we dont get angry with each other for long.. we can be in a heated argument about something trivial but after an hour or so, we will just laugh at each other's silliness again. =D
Okay got to go for my pedi later and I will doing DIY mani using acrylic nails and glue.
Frankly speaking, there's still quite a number of things not done but I think i will just play by ear tomorrow. It may not be perfect but it will definitely be a memorable day for us.
Oh yah, yesterday was a good clubbing sessioN! thanks galz! for the Bride To Be badge. Going to wear it out today for my pedi hahah! see you girls tomorrow!
Photos will upload soon.. maybe monday keke.

But.. mine, of course is special to me.
That's my special wedding moment. =)
We really have no confidence in winning the big prize by having the most votes. It's all for fun.. But really appreciate the editor for choosing our photo and showcase it there! that's something to be happy about! maybe i should say some 得奖感言 now.. haha

Last day of our trip.
Our flight was 6pm in the evening so we had a whole day to ourselves.. so we went to beitou thinking of hot springs. But the weather was so hot, we gave up after walking to the hot spring museum. We were really perspiring!
Next we went to breeze center (wei feng)to shop for lingerie! Found this piece of haven when I went with my mum previously. On the topmost floor of the shopping center, the whole level sells lingerie! Even darren felt alittle paiseh to sit there and wait for me keke
Bought only 1 set (compared to 3 sets previously) this time..
Had lunch in their basement. realli yummiz too.
Packed our luggage and ready to go!
We had FREE!! transport from hotel to Airport as we stayed there for at least 5 nights. Yippee.. we were really tired and the gowns and luggages were really heavy. It saved us some monies.. =D
We saw a couple taking wedding pictures at the airport.. keke
her gown.. is really shocking PINK with feathers =__=
The rest of my loots...
Part of Dar's Loots
it seems like the colours he bought was all black too! haah i thought i saw him grab pink and purple...
So we have been spending our time doing our love love scrapbook cum guestbook. Dar was nice to contribute, but he wasnt really enthusiastic. Hhaha! Really cannot blame him, he says he hate doing art. Anyway.. we would discuss where to put this, or where to paste that. As it was my first try at scrapbooking, I must say, my first attempt was... not so creative. just anyhow paste...
I realized.. anyhow paste oso look quite nice to me. cos it was me who PASTED THEM! =p
I was asking him where should I paste the cutout wordings "Laugh", "Inspire" and "Dream" on the card and he showed me this.
he say unique WORrrr. Realli unique.
Our final design.
him working hard.. =p on his own page with his own peekture

Met up with the Jan Brides Cheryl, Jean, Joanne and Jojo at Cafe Cartel on Thursday.
It was really a fun chatting session. Everybody shared about their BS experiences and house-hunting and almost everything under the sun. Everybody is going through the same thing so there's so much to talk about.
Hopefully we will have more people to join us next time =)

Been quite busy this week. Met up with some julia brides, Joan, Shara and Joanne on tuesday. Had a fun time talking and exchanging information on wedding preparations, makeup etc hee hee.. Really good to have advices from them =D.
We are all big fans of Julia's gowns! We admitted that the package is expensive but they are worth every cent hahah *winks*
Anyway.. we are NOT on a diet okay.. haha
Met up with Xinderella just now to have a good japanese dinner and a sampling of cookies at the V tea room. Havnt been there for quite some time and they were nice enough to call me to go down and sample their new range and enjoy a free pot of tea! =)
On the way to meet Xin, saw something special at the MRT. It's call ART on the move..
2 cloaked man with TVs as their heads and they were mumbling something.. so special. ha!
Heard that the V tea room is going to close soon to undergo renovation to turn the place into a cookie museum. Xinderella bought 3 tins and i bought 2, one for Dar and one for mummy..I lurve their cookies!
It was a good catch up. We talked about alot of things and I felt really good after talking to a good ol' friend. She updated me on her life as well as she has stopped blogging temporary cos she's really busy. Hope we meet up soon again.. hee hee
The cookie for Darren, nicely packaged, very artistic
公馆 night market.
We were still dwelling of whether to go 师大夜市 or 公馆夜市. Only had one night left, the 夜市 must be good! Didnt want to go Shi Lin cause it's high time we venture elsewhere. We did some last minute research back in hotel and heard that 公馆夜市 had more things to buy and eat while 师大夜市 is mainly for eating..
It turned out to be not bad but the size is definitely smaller than Shi Lin. There wasnt alot of people, maybe because it was weekday night as well.
I heard that 公馆夜市 is famous for cheap sports shoes and indeed! Darren bought a pair of Nike at a Nike shop and it's 20% cheaper than singapore. He's so happy after buying the shoes..Lurve seeing him in a very high mood otherwise i will be the only one buying, and he will look so sian. Chit chatted with the sales manager and realized he's been to Singapore, but he has really bad comments on sentosa. haha! sorry dude.. i dont have good comments for sentosa either.
We ate at the roadside stall and it was really good!! Never mind the actual cooking condition.. the 蛋花汤 was slurpy, especially the soup, yummiz!
Miss it so much now..
Didn't take much pictures after that cause we were busy eating and shopping.. lalala

Read this in Lyana's blog... I realized I was a.....
mani mani hom hom hom.
Dar said shopping is enough.. we cannot continue shopping everyday.. pockets almost empty.. And he has no interest in watching the guards changing ceremony as well so we looked through the brochures and we decided to join a 1/2 day tour to Wu lai.
It was a very relaxing day.. this was the only day that rained. the other days were freaking hot!
Dar love Wu Lai alot.. he loves the nature..and was glad that our trip was not just about shopping and eating..Actually 乌来 is a place of great outdoor hot springs.. but since we were on a 1/2 day tour, there's no time for hot springs. Anyway the weather was too hot that you wont want to go into the hot springs too. We didnt go to Jiu Fen this time as time was quite tight and because I went there before ler. ha! Will go there again soon.. I hope.
The photo I took for him
The photo he took for me =___=
Place to wait for the mini too too train to go up up the mountains!
here comes the 台车~
Off we go to the 瀑布站
WELCOME ABOARD! the tai che!
Pardon the shaky video.. it's the taiche. =p
i thought it was pretty scary cos it was drizzling... and i must say the news of cars fell off the mountain roads didnt help much. =p
The famous wu lai waterfall..
We watched the "yuan zhu ming" dance (泰雅族).. There wasnt alot of people as it was a weekday. Only a few Japanese old folks and us. The dance was about how the aborigines in Wulai started. (i must say the girls are really pretty and the guys oso very shuai) At the end of the dance, me and dar was invited up on stage to perform the marriage rites!!! to different people.. their dancers of course.
he even carried me using a chair he piggyback.. and i scream..
REALLY an experience.
Being a tourist destination, I know they sure DOK us. And true enough, they sold us a plate with our pictures in their costumes with our fake "other half" at 25 sgd dollars!
damnz! we are big singaporean cai tous!
*we bought it anyway
There's very few customers.. and each of their dancers were kinda staring at us..hahah*
Going to find that plate, it's somewhere... then post it here.
