News and Changes

I'm so glad to be back from this long hiatus, which turned out to be longer than I expected. I came back last Sunday, but then I'm down with flu, and a terrible stomachache. I was forced to stay in bed for three whole days. Today, finally I'm feeling much better :)

How are you guys?? I miss you all so much. Sorry for not being able to check out your posts lately, but hopefully I can catch up with all of you today :)

Meanwhile, I have some updates about the wedding.


Well, not really found, I actually decided to have it made. The problem is, it's very hard to find a sweet and simple dress, the way I want it to be. Most dresses I saw in those boutiques and bridal studios are mostly ballgowns, with bling-blings ALL OVER it. That is such a big NO-NO for me. So, after a few trying, I finally decided to go to a fashion designer to design my own dress, and have it made from scratch. voila! I'm quite happy with the design. It's chic, simple, and sweet. Similar to one of the dresses I posted a few days ago ;)

One problem, I SERIOUSLY need to go on diet, if I want to look good in the dress.


Anyways, I had my hair permed.


I was planning to cut my hair short, but my Mom didn't allow me because I'm getting married, and I need my long hair for that. I tried to remind her that the wedding is still 9 months away and my hair will be long AGAIN by that time. But she still insisted that 9 months will not be enough. So I gave up. I finally decided to have it permed. I didn't know how I came up with that decision. I'm not loving the result, though it's not really THAT bad. Oh well.

My mom promised me that I can do whatever I want with my hair after I'm married. She said she's even okay if I'm bald. I can't understand, what's wrong with getting married with short hair?

I need to let out one more thing that got me so pissed this morning. One colleague arranged a meeting for tomorrow, Friday at 6 p.m. HELLOoo?? It's weekend! and 6 p.m. is off-work!! Seems like somebody here needs to get a life.

Okay, okay, sorry for the random rambling. I'm gonna have to leave you all for now. Geez, a lot to catch up at work. Will talk to you again tomorrow, promise :)

Have a nice day, dears!!

Another Absence

I'm going to have another-week absence from blogging. I'm such a lazy blogger, I know.


Going home always thrills me :) This time is for Chinese New Year. For all of you who celebrate it, Happy Chinese New Year!

Meanwhile, I want to share some food-porn for you to drool over.

These were our last dinner on our last day back home last holiday. We were dining at my favourite steak house, called Angus House. They have the best steak in town.

Our appetizer is pan-fried salmon with veggie in tomato sauce, squid ink pasta, and shrimp in cream sauce. Nice.

Japanese style salad, with bamboo shoots, carrots, lettuce, tomatoes, and mushrooms in some Japanese sauce (which I don't know hot to describe)

Corn cream soup with fresh baked bread. I assure you this is the best cream soup I've ever had. Really. Delightfully creamy.And the bread was just crusty on the outside, and warm soft on the inside. Great combination.

So here's the steak I was talking about. The picture doesn't do it justice though. Mine is Rib Eye, medium well. I like my steak medium rare or medium well. Both are okay. In Angus, I like their medium well. It's perfect for me. Chewy and juicy. What makes this special is their sauce. I believe it's one kind of Japanese sauce, which I'm not sure what, but I tell you, it's really good. It goes perfect with the meat.

Our dessert was not the best dessert I've ever tasted there. The fruit cake was okay, but I'm not a fruit cake person. And strawberry ice cream is definitely not me.

However, overall, we had a great dinner that day. Hopefully I'll get to enjoy another dinner in Angus when I go back this time :)

Oh, and Happy Valentine!! Have a great time with your loved ones, ok!! Love you all!

When Did I Last Post?

It was almost a week ago!

It should be my longest absence (last holiday absence doesn't count) . I felt so guilty and envious everytime I read all your posts. I have been super busy lately with work. So, forgive me my dears, I haven't got the chance to visit and drop some comments.

Blame my work, please.

I was absent from doing and TALKING about anything related to wedding also, which made Han so much relieved. Girls are always much more excited in this kind of things, aren't they? Guys just don't care about dresses, flowers, invitation cards, headpieces. (Sorry about the generalization, boys, but I think you should agree with me on this)

Last week, Han made a terrible mistake by saying (after I accused him of being less-excited), "It's not that I'm not excited. We just need to divide the duties. I'm doing the things I can do. I book the venue, book the pastor, while you can do the MINOR things, like DRESSES.."

NOBODY takes my dresses as MINOR things.

Luckily, he realized about his oh-so-wrong statement, and restated it at once. "I mean, you can do all the exciting things, like dresses. I know dresses are the most important thing in the wedding. I know that."

Hmm, good boy.

Anyways, I saw some dresses online, from Monique Lhuillier and Carolina Herrera (If I'm not mistaken)

I am thinking to get a simple tube dress, with a bit (or a lot) of lace. NO ball gown type.

Personally, I like the the first and the last ones. What do you think, guys?

Wednesday's Random

Fe from Secret Dream-World by a Fashion Muse passed me this lovely award. Thanks darling! Fe is my first blogger pal, and she's been one of the sweetest friend I've ever had. And not to forget, she's SUPER talented. You can check out her blog, and you'll know what I mean.

And since all of my loyal readers here are dazzling, I pass this award to all of you who's reading this :) Oh, and boys, you too :)

And, I need some suggestion here. I want to buy moisturizer (Sorry boys, you can skip this part), but I don't know which brand should I buy. Girls, what moisturizer you all have been using? My skin is not really oily, and not dry. So, normal skin (duh!) I'm looking for those that's oil-free and better if it's anti-bacterial, since I have acne-prone skin. Would love to hear from all of you pretties :)

Oh, and I've been thinking about wedding theme. Since we're going to have a small and simple wedding, I'm thinking to have a color as the theme, with lots of flowers. So far, I've been loving FUSCHIA as a main, and perhaps a dash of other cheerful colors to lighten up. What do you think?

Aren't they lovely?
