Lets de-stress!

In conjunction with the de-stressing campaign launched by Miss Ayu, I've completed her wedding tag. Yay! Finally I have a reason to discuss about this topic. Haha. Kidding. Wedding can be a nightmare for some, but for me, it is the day when everything matters, and when I can prove to the world that true love exists. Yep, call me corny. But that is the truth. I don't think I can handle marrying someone whom I have no feelings to. :P Here is it then..

1.How old are you?

2. Are you single?
Taken, and lovin' every single moment of it.

3. In what age do you think you’ll get married?
Around 25 or 26, considering my income is not more than 200 per month, and the boyfriend is far and all. But who knows right, probably I'll ring the bell earlier and God forbid, later.

4. Do you think you’ll be marrying the person you are with now?
Since Johnny Depp already tied his knot and Lance Bass has turned gay, I think I just will stick to this one, Dengan izin Allah. :))

5. If not, who do you want to marry?

6. Do you want a garden/beach wedding, or the traditional wedding?
I always dream of a white garden wedding, with the pelamin decorated with fresh flowers and rose petals everywhere.

7. Your ideal motif?
Off white theme, decorated with pastel colored flowers.

8. Where do you plan to go on a honeymoon?
Anywhere with white sandy beaches, crystal clear water and breath-taking scenery, as well as beautiful sunset. At this moment, I'm thinking of an island in Greece. I fell in love with it after watching Mamma Mia!. Stunning!

9. How many guests do you think you’ll invite?
A small, family and friends only wedding would be nice. But it is impossible to do so, since I have a very big family, friends, as well as family friends.

10. Do you want an extravagant wedding or a simple wedding?
A wedding up to my standard. Not too simple, not too sophisticated.

11. Do you want the traditional vows or something you’d make up on your own??
No vows what-so-ever in Malay weddings. Only akad nikah, which is fixed.

12. How many layers of cake do you want to have?
Three layers. Covered with white fondant, decorated with edible pastel colored flowers.

13. Do you prefer having your reception at a hotel or at a simple place?
Hotels means protocols, RSVPs and pissed off customers. I don't think I can handle that.

14. When do you want to get married, evening or morning?
A night wedding is much more nicer compared with the evening and morning, since the possibility of raining is low and there's not sunlight to bring up the heat, but it is totally unconventional and tiresome. So, I'd rather stick with the afternoon up to evening wedding.

15. You’d rather have your reception outdoors or indoors?
Outdoors. Indoors will be too stuffy and crowded.

16. Do you like a grand entrance for your groom/bride?
Currently, I'm trying to think of a new kind of entrance, since the old kompang and the bride covering her face with kipas lipat is soo lame and typical.

17. Name the song/tune you’d like played at your wedding?
Over the weekends, I went to a friend to a friend's wedding and they have a 'caklempong 'group playing songs over the corner. I was fascinated on how songs played in wedding can effect the mood of the reception. So, I think I will get one and ditch the typical-noisy-weddings-with-karaoke. For song selection, I will go for Dealova by Once.

18. Are you a morning person or a night person?
Definitely a night person.

19. Do you want a solemn ceremony or a light one?

Light one. Solemn ceremony is too boring.

20. What age do you want to get married?
Refer to question number 3.

21. Describe your ideal husband/wife.

A man who comes home everyday with a smile in his face even after a hectic day, and treat me like his best buddy, talks to me like the world is ours, understands my feeling and try to comfort me when I'm down, can cheer me up and makes me laugh, loyal, forgiving, sensitive and can lead me to the right path.

22. Do you prefer fine dining or just the normal spoon & fork/knife?
Fine dining is too aristocrat-y. Pakai tangan sudaahhh.

23. Champagne or red wine?
Sirap lah. Murah, lagi halal.

24. Honeymoon right after the wedding or days after the wedding?
Erm. Right after would be nice. :P

25. Money or household item?

26. Who will pay for the bills?
Sharing is caring :)

27. Are you ready for married life?
Not for now. I'm still young. huu~

28. Do you think you will still be a virgin until u get married?
Yes. No doubt about that.

29. Will you always be true to your wife/husband?
I've been true to my boyfriend for 5 years and still counting. I have no reason not to do the same after marriage.

30. How many kids do you like?
A football team of kids. Haha. I love kids. If only I can have a lot of them with the burden of my work.

31. A new house for a newly wed or an old one?
Anything will do so that we can still save up our money for our beautiful bungalow in the future.

32. Will you celebrate silver wedding, gold wedding, or diamond wedding?
Diamond wedding would be nice. Diamond is a girl best friend right.:P If not, I'll go with white gold.

33. What kind of cuisine would you like for your wedding?
Nasi putih with traditional lauk-pauk with ulam and all. Nasi minyak is too unhealthy. Huuhu

34. Will you record your honeymoon in a cd or dvd?
I have to spare this question, I've answered 33 already!

p/s: Ayu, first tag tu tak buat. If not bocorlah segala rahsia.:P

Footnote: Just went to a friend engagement this afternoon. Congratulations Intan! Hope you 'll tie the knot soon ;) *Badi tunang tolonglah higgaplah kat badan sayaaa..Hahahaha..:P*

I want to fly.

I had never felt so relieved and free for months. Not even when I'm having my holiday last week.

Thanks to the closure of one chapter of disaster in my life as a medical student, the Community follow-up posting. I would like to congratulate myself after managing to do it out of scratch.

And oh,
after months of waiting, finally, I have something to look forward to.
HIS arrival.

But for now, I think what I want to do is go and get a new book, probably the one with happy endings and dive into it.

Yellow feet day.

Meet Sunrise, my new pair of flats.

I owned her last week, out of my mother generosity. Sayang Mama~

I seldom buy shoes. Usually, I will buy them only when I really have to or if I feel like my feet deserves a new treat after months of wearing the same old shoe. This time, I bought her because of the second reason. I'm all fired up the first time I saw her, and I knew I have to get her.

First stop with Sunrise : KLCC.
I had lunch with a senior Petronas officer, two Lawyers and a Hotlink promoter. Nothing official just had a business meeting with 'em. Haha drama lebihh. It was my auntie, my sister, her friend and my cousin, all working under one roof. My sister is currently doing her practical in the Law Department in Petronas for one month.

After filling up my empty belly, I went to Kinokuniya. It is a sin if I don't visit Kino when I'm in KLCC, or it will be like going to Sushi King without eating sushi. Yep, I know the books are a little bit pricey compared to MPH and Borders, but I love hanging out there.

The reason why I got addicted to places full with books, story books to be exact, was my mother. My mother is a librarian and my siblings and I always follow her to work since we were small. She will bring home storybooks for us. She also often brought us to bookstores, and when we were there, one hour was usually not enough for us to search for the perfect book. Other than going the usual bookstores in malls, there was this little bookstore where she usually brought us, located in Central Market, where we can either buy or rent the books. The books there are either first or second hands. The second hands are of course, cheaper and the books are all in good conditions.

Getting back with my day with Sunrise, I decided to take a train to Central Market, since I have to wait for my sister until 5pm, and it was only 2.30pm. I has been a while since I bought my last book there, probably since high school. But it was truly worth it, despite having to get through the heavy rain and to make it worst, I've forgotten to bring along my umbrella, which is a habit of mine (in the end I'll usually end up buying a new umbrella) . I finally got my hands on one of Mitch Albom's bestselling novel, The Five People You Meet in Heaven. I was searching for Tuesdays With Morrie at first, but as I said, the bookstore was small, and I'm afraid if I'll be buried in a stack of books and I'm not very fond of dying when the people that I love was not around, as Isabella Swan said,

"...dying in the place of someone I love seems a good way to go.."

[after watching it, I understand why Edward-Cullen-Craziness are currently infecting the minds of young girls, not to forget the young-at-heart too]

It has some defect here and there, but it was perfect.

After one hour searching for my book, and my sister's as well, I roamed around Central Market to wait for the rain to stop. For my surprise, there was a stall selling printed shoulder bags. I'm allergic to anything printed, from vintage, patchwork to floral prints. I totally HAVE to get them, considering the price was cheap compared to other places. Previously, I purchased two printed shoulder bags, one I got it from Malacca, the second one from Bandung. Now I can add up another one in my collection. Yay!

The shoulder bag was blue-white-chocolate colored paisley print, I was totally decisive when I decided to buy it because it totally worth the sweat.

After the rain has stopped, which I realized only after I have bought an umbrella which cost me 10 bucks (refer to the previous statement) *greatness* I took a train back to KLCC. The umbrella was cute though and hey, I can add it up to my umbrella collections.(optimistically thinking)

A lunch accompanied by great people, hanging out in Kino, a new book and paisley-shoulder bag, not to forget a new umbrella, today was definitely a great day out, wasn't it Sunrise?

Footnote : I should write a post with the title 'The Headturning Reality of Wearing Yellow Shoes'. Haha :P

Confessions of a Signboard Enthusiast

Confession: I have a thing with signboards.

Especially the peculiar ones.

Here are some of it which I think are totally odd
and it is a sin if I don't post it in my blog.


Location : Port Dickson's Mosque

My friends and I were on our way to grab our lunch when we saw this signboard. It was near to the main gate to the mosque. Obviously, they want to avoid people from blocking the main entrance. But we were laughing our hearts out when we read the "Harap Faham" part.

Memang orang Malaysia ni kebanyakannya
tak faham bahasa.


Location: Bandar Hilir, Melaka

When you are in Malacca, and you have a couple of days off left and you have no idea where will be your next holiday destination, don't hesitate to go to London. It is only 10632 kilometers away.


Location : Dago Plaza, Bandung, Indonesia

I was pretty amazed when I saw this signboard to the washroom. I get the bananas and all, but apples? I have to think real hard to get the 'picture'. Probably pears are hard to find there.


Location: Taman Safari, Puncak, Indonesia

Lesson of the day, ponies bites.
