i shall now go off and cry in a corner...

as you can see, there is no new update to this blog for some time.
actually, I accidentally lost a large amount of my photos in picasaweb, which were linked to this blog.
i didn't know that blogger used picasaweb as their picture hosting service.
this happened when they synchronized my picasaweb albums with my Google+ albums & with my so called smartphone!!

a few months back, my phone's SD card gone damaged.
anyway, this had happened twice already!
so all pictures in my handphone are gone.. gone!
new pics taken by the hp camera, well, that's one thing.
but all pictures in my blog? ssk, that's really something!

i lost years of memories down the drain...
i shall now go off and cry in a corner...

sobs sobs..

p/s: if anyone of you know how to retrieve the deleted pictures, please let me know.....

my lil brother's wedding

hello & happy merdeka day.

you know what.. today, i feel like blogging :)
i don't know why, it must be hormonal issue or something.
funny that i chose to blog about my lil bro's wedding that was held in march.

i helped him with his hantaran, pelamin, stairs deco, room deco, and a few other things which i don't really remember since the event took place months back.

the thing that i loved the most was the hantaran, i mean, among things that i did.
i chose to have arrangements of combination of bright colored fresh flowers and white.
normally for hantaran, ppl would go for pastel colored fresh flowers.
so i wanted to try something fresh & different.
and these are the results...

aren't they lovely?
they are, no?
haha nevermind if you don't think so, as long as i was & am still happy with my work.

by the way, the family theme color for the akad nikah was purple.
while bride & groom were wearing off whites.
i was wearing typical modern kurung.

with the groom @ my lil brother

the beautiful bride

the akad nikah & reception event were held on the same day.
for the reception, the newly married couple was dressed in brown colored suit cut baju melayu & gown.
honestly, i didn't really like the color, but the gown cutting was nice.

the following day was event at my parents' house for groom side.
the theme color was pink + gold, same theme color as my akad nikah.
i was wearing modern kurung with pleated chiffon skirt, while the groom & bride were dressed in white attire.
i love the bride's dress, well, i was the one who chose it anyway.
and i love the makeup too!

ohh did i mention that the pelamin was made by yours truly?
yeah, but it was just a simple one.
i wasn't really satisfy with the outcome, but still, it's better than my wedding pelamin.
the rule of thumb in making self-made pelamin - less is more.

not the pengantin!

here i present some of the best photos from the wedding from my sis camera.
see captions for description :)

Look! We have giant cupcake for the cake cutting.

rose petals to prettify the dressing table

we have gamelan on that day

mini banner that i made (with vector images taken from the net)

goodie bags

i don't have pictures of stairs & room deco made by me, well trust me it was just a simple one.
so i guess, that's it!
an eventful event it was :)

anniversary in krabi (part 1)

ouh it took me 2 months to blog about our krabi trip.
i should do this earlier, now that it's already months, i started to forgot things about this lovely trip.

we were there on april to celebrate our 1st year's anniversary, to enjoy some sand & sea together.
we love krabi so much that we felt like staying there forever.
it was nothing like here.
we love the fact that nobody rushed, even the tourist didn't.
it was a very relaxing 4 days in our lives.

we stayed at sunda resort.
it is just a 2- or 3-star resort, i think.
i got the room very cheap from groupon.
the resort is not located by the beach, but there was a free shuttle service from the resort to the beach area from morning till night.
the room was just so-so, but we loved the service.
the staff were really helpful, like really really.
there are plenty of nice hotels & resots in krabi.
competition is tough & that's why they were giving us the best that they have, well, that's just my assumption tho.

we did nothing on our first day because we arrived quite late.
we did go out to get something for dinner.
we had our dinner at chaba halal restaurant.
after that we tried to find something to do on our next day.
so we talked to a trip tour agent & have chose to go to phi phi island.

the second day, phi phi island boat trip it is.
we went to several places including pileh bay, monkey bay, maya bay, viking cave, phi phi don island & bamboo island (i think there are lots more, but i just can't remember).
the view at pileh bay is fantastic, so does at maya bay.
apart from sightseeing, we also did some snorkeling.
my husband does not like snorkeling like i do, so he didn't enjoy that activity like i did.
it's like having fun time all alone.
i wish "my snorkeling friends" were there, well, you know who you are.

the boat trip was a 1-day trip from 8am to 4pm.
we were back to our hotel, feeling so tired.
i called a masseur for a thai massage session in our hotel room.
the thai massage was really good, maybe because the masseur is a thai lady & i do it in thailand.
haha does it make sense to you?
later at night, we had our dinner at the same restaurant like a night before, chaba restaurant.
i don't know why we chose to have our 2nd dinner at the very same restaurant, maybe because we were too tired to think.

third day, our initial plan was to have an elephant trekking or kayaking or water rafting (there are so much things you can do in krabi), but we didn't have the energy to do so.
we were still tired haha, so we just walked around the aonang beach town the whole day.
we did some shopping for families, friends and of course for ourselves.

later at night, we had a candlelight dinner to celebrate our 1st anniversary at the hotel.
i told the lady at the reception that it is our anniversary so we want to have a proper dinner for 2 & it would be great to have a candlelight dinner.
we were really surprised that they did their best for the dinner.
we thought that we would be having that candlelight dinner at their restaurant, but they placed us in a special room & did a great preparation for us (with no extra cost).
there was romantic background music being played for us & they left us in that room after they served our foods, leaving just the two of us.
well, i guess the rest is history :)
it was a lovely effort from them & we do really appreciate it.

forth day which is our last day, we woke up late.
we did nothing until 12pm, when the taxi guy picked us up at the hotel.

so there was our sweet escape.
it was a sweet, memorable anniversary to the both us!

p/s: part 2 is coming up for pictures.
