On the day of the dress fitting, I went down with both Vitor and Hong, the latter whom I have great trust in taste. Most our friends will agree that Hong usually is pretty sharp in aesthetic stuff. One thing she didn't know was that ever since secondary school, I have a bad habit of getting pple to go choose things with me but the conclusion of the purchase is always by my own gut likings rather then my fren's suggestion. So usually my frens felt like killing me for wasting their brain to think and choose when my brain is like in its own world choosing what I want... eventually no matter whether it turns out great or not, I still nede up choosing on my own liddat. Yet there is one person whom I have always think twice about when she say something is nice... which is Hong. haha ok let's not digress from the dress fitting outing.

And it seems to be a surprise dat MOG was in the top 50s esp since Singapore is more popularly known as a well developed city rather den a place with many scenic landscapes and views. Well now we know that Singapore has another area which she can be proud in its ranking in lol. Kudos to Singapore!

So cute, simple but simply sweet!
Anyway, my wedding bands are also from goldheart... hey gpt member discount obviously I will go back to it. I will show the wedding bands on the next post tho since I have yet collected the rings. So usually when you purchase wedding bands, the jewellry shop will always give the couple a complimentary ring pillow =) thank goodness it is PINK and WHITE fits the theme of my wedding perfectly. The only problem the flowers are non removable and is stubbornly sticked on with super glue... haizz
So tried putting both together amazin still looks pretty ok with each other even tho i would prefer a plain base. But to get a new ring pillow will mean at least another 50 bucks and if i were to use the current pillow without the crystal crown it would be a waste of qi and my efforts for an entire noon =(

Here's some arrays of the designs which you can find there.
These are foam flowers which really resembles the actual flowers a lot and a real beauty.
Vitor making the hand corsage for me. Yup there is no typo here it indeed is a hand corsage and not wrist corsage if you check out the following pic.
Yep, my idea of not having the conventional wrist corsage. Lovely isn't it? but there is more meaning to it.....
The reception table and the reception area where our guests can mingle around at. I'm planning to place some cookies and perhaps chocs on the tables so our guests can snack a little.
Inside the Vanilla Pod Restaurant where you can see that Vitor is actually very please with the interior air-con lol. Like I mentioned if you looked closely the restaurant is almost all glass so our guests can dine with a good view.

what's wrong with his accent? we should not laugh at other's accent cos everyone has his own unique accent.
but what i feel is that he has guts and ain't romantic. he should propose in person. n what about the flowers and ring??!!
check this out!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pp3i-vDTe-c
this guy in the video had done a marvellous job!that would really melt a girl's heart
maybe we can learn something about been romantic. what Gavin did was only daring but not romantic at all and i don't understand why so many girls think that he's romantic. He is very sincere though!
so kudos to blockhead Vitor(salute)
This is a comment made in response to Kennysia's post to help a guy propose to his girlfriend online. I guess his gf must be a great fan of Kennysia's blog.
Well I think it is a pretty well thought of idea since his gf reads the blog every morning. Well despite there were several negative comments on the proposal, the only reason why I think the idea was sweet was that he had paid detailed attention to her daily routine which many guys still fails to accomplish that even for years.
Usually I will straight away comment that this is not romantic at all although the surprise element is pretty high. But after read Fiona's blog, I gather that Gavin eventually brought her to her nice romantic place for dinner and presented her a ring. So at least he did follow up and create a romantic atmostphere when he gave her the ring. So it wasn't totally anti climax after all. BUT I feel that it would have been an even better proposal if the follow up is almost immediate so she can been overwhelmed with so much wonderful emotions =) den again this is my opinion, as long the girls luvs it who cares what the whole world thinks man!
I'm glad she says yes after all the excitement! All the best to Gavin and Fiona!

So now after browsing through so many webby for informations on wedding ideas, I have decided to start a blog to keep track of the so many wonderful things which I badly lUVVV but yet too many to work on!
But alas before this great moment, I shall start the first blog which is every woman's dream which is the proposal itself. I am glad my witty best galfren cum sister, qi did a great job by capturing the special moment on video cam (which my bf has surprising excluded out from his GREAT PLAN lol guess he must have been nervous lol!) Well don't be surprise, because his evil tyrant gf has always been a fan of the romance and crazy ideas and so she told him 'If you ever propose and it is not touching, forget about me saying yes' and prep him with the thought of 2nd and 3rd trial attempt due to previous failure attempts.
So my woodblock bf started his intensive search on internet and was even more stress when his gf show him this marvelous overseas proposal
This proposal is every woman's dream and every man's night mare hahaha. Spoil market hor!
But girls sometimes you must stress the guys a bit. Well at least they will come to senses that they need to put in some effort for ya. Hmm think about this, this is really once in a life time and you will really hope that when you break the news to ur frens... everyone will be like equally as excited as you are. I think guys who happen to chance my blog might strangle me for psychoing ur gfs for ya-ya over proposals BUT I can tell you if my wood block(aka not so romantic) bf can do it, dun be lazy and excuse yourself and say things like my gf prefers it simple and cost saving. BULLSHIT dun you noe girls are creatures who are 'Kou Shi Xin Fei' ma? if you still haven grasp that, I fear for your life as you might be threading on the edge of a CHAINSAW muaahahaha.
ok I'm drifting away from my proposal story:
Well qi asked me out on a dinner date with her at marina square. So after dinner she suddenly wants to visit the laserworks show at Suntec city which she exclaim that she has not seen it before (which i suspect she is telling the truth and you will know why later). So she started draggin me (who happened to be sick) towards the fountain of wealth but alas she was so excited that she walk so fast until i cant catch up with her. haha The best was she did bring me to the fountain of wealth but she went to the top level (see that's why I say she really never seen the show before) instead of the bottom level where you can see the laser show. It was only after some time den I realise she was babbling about the laser show so I told her it is the wrong floor and almost fainted because I was practically chasing after her up the stairs and realise it was the wrong place.(sometimes qi is really cute and more blur den me so I luv being around her)
So she started looking pretty flustered, panicking and ran down the stairs again. Finally we manage to catch the laser work show which qi again amazingly started taking out her video cam to film the laser works. I was like wow she looks like some tourist who TRULY NEVER SEEN laser work shows before (but then deep inside I have a hunch she is a weirdo today).
What happens next was a sweet and surprise dedication from Vitor and he came running out from hiding area (inside the DJ booth) and tada propose!
FOr the visual details ... well just watch the video :
Like I say I luv qi! The video capture allows me to have the the first chance at editing of video and I'm proud of my work!!! Funny to say many pple's first rxn, esp the guys was 'wah laser work proposal must been a big hole in the pocket' .... lol let me announce the price to everyone : IT"S FREE OF CHARGE!! Yesss! FREE you din hear me wrongly! Suntec city provides free service for dedication! http://www.oraclelaser.com/touchscreen.htm . Guys pls brush up on your knowledge and you can do this for ur gf's bdae or anniversary etc.... So this is a very smart idea which Vitor had came up with and 2 thumbs up for him!!!
Sad to say the resolution wasn't clear enuff to capture our tears etc etc. So far I did a survey, many galfrens tear when their bf propose as this is really a touching moment since you are so happy and lost for words. Even Vitor told me that he was so touched by himself that he almost tear (isn't that cute? but sorry guys he is my teddy bear you are not allow to touch him even tho he is cute). BUT the fabulous part was not it, when we went to his house, he has a second part of the surprise awaiting for me! he filled up his room's ceiling with so many balloons and there was a sweet certificate placed and tied up nicely on the table which we need to sign to signify the day of the proposal!(copy my idea tho, I once gave him a cert during our first month anniversary, but he is really good at copying ideas lol)
Thank you so much my dear for giving me such a wonderful memory!
