SO YET AGAIN, PRincess Christine is officially "Haolian-ING" (PROUD) over her newfound talent

For a personalised wedding, the first touch is to have a personalised logo.
Not only can you use them in your invitations, that is if you are looking at something non-traditional, non-red, non-Xi, they can also double up as part of the decorations, letterheads, stickers etc. They can also be used to reflect your theme for the wedding.
You can just search online for wedding logos/monograms and there's a huge selection online. But we decided to try our hands on doing it ourselves. But no matter how I look at them, I still think those designed by professionals are so much nicer. Hopefully some arty farty kind souls out there can volunteer to do this for us FOC? hahah

I really cant helped be impressed about the concept from Systemind! It allows you to store 101 things inside it and most importantly 5 yrs down the road if I really really need to shift to a new place etc, this is something which is really portable friendly. Plus we know that Princess Christine is never the kind who likes to sit still so the movable furnishing means a new way to let me explore and move the furnishing from tme to time to come out with new layout!
WAIT! Why should it be a THE END????

A close up just on the wall panel. You might realise that the wall is actually behind the door when we open it. I really din wan to get into trouble with my mum in law in case she discovered that I have illegally use a pencil to draw on the wall one day before the painting project. Plus in any case where the painings did not work out, the damage work can be hidden temporarily by the open door lol.
Here's the second wal panel that wil need to be completed in June. As te flowers drawn will be diagonally upwards, I guess the no. of flowers drawn will be much lesser and hopefully less hectic then.
You're able to find it from the Ikea Singapore website as well!
Here's the link: http://www.ikea.com.sg/catalog/product_display.asp?art=00120007-280-11-26-762401066-10740297
1. Clean and dry the wall (ensure it's not a newly painted wall! or else it won't stick at all!)
2. Use bluetacks to layout the stickers on the wall before pasting. (that's what we did)
3. Paste paste PASTE.
4. Tadah! You're done!
Do ignore the stickers on top of the tv, I have yet time to take them down and replace it with more wall painting.
My sis-in-law, Ah Li joined in the fun too =)
But I din have time to finish up the first panel of the wall (notice how the right hand corner is empty) so I decide to leave it till tmr morning =) especially when I have a movie to catch later in some moments away.

So while passing by metro, woodblock and me saw this luxuriant purple silky bedsheets on sale! Yep can't help but bought it as our very first spare bed sheets =) Love the purple variant stripe details at the edge of the comforter. haah the cute bear bear pillow was given to me by by wonderful jie mei colleague . Very sweet of her and I found the pillow so cute that I place it on my bed.
The colour of the actual bedsheets is actualy of a darker colour too but same thing due to the camera limitations, everything appear of a brighter hue in the picture.
TADA now that I taken the pic of the wall drawing and it gives you a better idea of how it appears like. Think the emboidered flowers on the bedsheet really goes well with flower theme on the wall. The bed looks so luxurious and comfortable that even my sis-i-law sneak in during the noon time to sleep on the bed lol.
The cupboard and the bedframe was bought last year and cost me about 600 plus bucks. When I took the pic, I notice something colourful on top of the cupboard....
Then I remembered it was my bdae card to woodblock back in uni days! The card is an A3 size one!!! Represents how huge my love for woodblock is lol.... I remember that I wanted to surprise woodblock on his bdae and hid outside his flat and wanted to wait till late night and present the card to him. Too bad just after 15mins into waiting outside his house, I got scared especially during night time (well it is a known secret that I am afraid of dark) so the surprise was indeed a surprise for myself in not being able to wait till the precious hour =P

Somehow, weeks ago, while I was shopping for grocery in NTUC, I did notice about the circular doilies being sold in 10s. There instead of pondering over it's use as an invite, I was was more inspired to colour it into black and then use it as a base for my centerpieces.
Sometimes I marvel as how the craft geniuses can go beyond something I can think of.
The only catch with this particular craft invite will be finding a lace doily which is squarish and notice how it turn out just nice that the butterflies details are at the edge of the doily to make this piece of aethetic work a punch =) I think I will be obsessed with doilies for quite some time until the JUNE holidays whereby I have time to go round to do my purchase for art materials.
Martha Steward have also created a series of wedding DIYS revolving lace:
Sweet cotton lace wrist corsage for the little ladies
Another one of my favourite! Lace Luminarias! Too bad the stencils doesn't come in black lace if not I can print it on those traslucent red papers =)

A good thing was that her bdae coincides with the mother's day festival and there were many restaurants and cake shop offering nice yummy food just to pamper our mum. We took her out to dine at Dian Xiao Er and was pleased when we were given a free flower to present to mum=)
A beautiful memory of the nice flower being captured.
Of cos we also splurge on a double tier yam cake for MIL to tell her how much we love her too=)
Too bad Ah jie is in Taiwan on a tour now, if not the picture will be picture perfect. I could really feel that MIL was very happy to have woodblock treating her and Ah li and him to celeb with her with such a nice cake!
What's a birthday without a cake and a bdae song? I wonder what was the wish that MIL had on her mind.
After the cake, Woodblock and me slipped out to purchase a new comforter set from Metro before going off to Liang Court for some shopping.
This is the traditional coffee making device used by the Vietnamese. I love the design as I thought it is a very nice instrument for drinking coffee. First it makes us wait for the coffee to be ready patiently and at the same time it provides the visual appeal of going to produce some thick and aromatic coffee. Like I say I am just a sucker for aesthetic, who cares whether if the coffee does taste good. It is the PSYCHOLOGY that matters for ME.
The popular coffee brand in Vietnam - Trung Nguyen. You can easily buy the instrument in Vietnam at about 2 -4 bucks(SING dollars of cos), depending on the quality. I almost bought one back to singapore from my mini honeymoon but woodblock told me not to waste money as he won't be using it =(
With itchy hands, it is hard for me not to peek into the mini coffee machine to see what is happening and to check whether if it is ready (ie when all the water seeps through the thick layer of coffee powder).
A close up
As the water is seeping away, woodblock and me decided to develop ourself into a more cultivated person. We started to ACT like some proffessional trying to appreciate the coffee beans provided with the coffee to admire at the coffee aroma.
I seldom have so much time to play with coffee beans but I love posing with them.
On the other hand, woodblock tries super duper hard to smell the beans.
It was uner some training from me the cultured princess, was he able to appreciate the coffee beans in the right way. I'm just a great trainer =)
But after princess Christine went back to appreciate her own beans before checking back on woodblock, princess Christine couldn't helped by giving out a BIG SIGH as it was apparent that woodblock needs another hundred years of training before he can reached her
SNAP No. 3: Woodblock go and drink his cup of soft drink
In short: HE just couldn't keep still to pose for the camera. BY the end of the third snap, princess Christine almost feel like becoming a vegetarian again to BITE him. Why can't this woodblock keep stilll like a normal tree??? Is he a mutant or what?
Here's the right example of posing for the camera. Sweet dainty smile and holding the most important essence of the picnic: THE FOOD! I think my influence on woodblock can never be NEGATIVE esp when you are talking about a SMART, witty, pretty and JUST SIMPLY WONDERFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUL WIFE.
Here's some snaps of how CLOSE we are to the stage!!! I always love to be in the "FRONTEST" (newly invented vocab by me again) row!!! Hate the distractions whenever I sit at the back.
I name this picture "PIGGIN out".
Woodblock was complaining he was hot but don't worry cos the smart wife bought along an electric fan for him! TOLD ya, the title "VIRTUOUS WIFE" was never just an empty name I called myself, it is a title with DEEP meaning to it.
