E-day Progress Report 2...

While everybody celebrating their new year relaxing at home, I’m start to continue my e-day hunting again. But this time more progressive kut. No more kind of survey type of hunting. Yeah, I’ve got about 1 month to go but I just don’t like to do things at the very last minute. It’s better to do everything early so if there’s anything unlikely trouble to come I’ll manage to cope up well. Are you with me gurls?
This time my mode of searching was more to complete my hantaran decor. Actually susah jugak yer nak buat hantaran decor ni. Even though I give the honor to decor my hantaran to my kezen but I totally involve in searching all the things needed for the decor. From the main thing to even the small little one. Sangat penat ok.

We start our mission on 02.01.2010 with SSF Home Deco dekat Bandar Sri Damansara. There are 2 SSF store there and it is opposite each other. But we only manage found only one entrance. Lagi satu tu tak reti nak masuk ikut jalan maner. Tapi masuk SSF store yang ini pun dah take almost 2 hours mencari bunga yang sesuai untuk letak dekat hantaran. We all tengok jugak kalo ade candle holder yang match with the one yang kami dah deli dekat Romantika dulu. Tapi takde plak. End up we only buy roses for hantaran decor and also for decor tempat menyarung cincin nanti. Oopss…actually we are not only hunting untuk hantaran decor jer but sekali dgn decor untuk tempat sarung cincin nanti. Bunga-bunga dekat SSF memang sangat cantik. Gila dan rambang mata dibuatnya. But stick to the theme hot pink and apple green for vantage style. So big blooming English roses is just perfect.

After that we are heading to Ikea to proceed with our mission. Kat Ikea kami singgah solat and lunch dulu. Lepas tu baru start looking for things. Banyak jugak la barang yang kami beli sampai penuh boot kereta abah. Hehe. Kami beli bantal, stand lamp, vase, small chair and candle. But still candle holder color hot pink tak ade. Mase nak beli candle tu agak pening jugak nak buat keputusan sama ade nak beli ke tak kan. I just wanna have about four candle color hot pink and apple green but ikea jual dalam pack of 12 which terlalu banyak for me. Yang loose tak ada. Bila abah tengok I pusing-pusing lama sangat kat bhgn candle tu, abah suruh amek jer lilin tu. Abah cakap lebih tak apa. Lilin boleh guna bile black out. So I just take it la. One pack with hot pink and the other pack with apple green.

Next, we went to Shah Alam. Masuk lagi kedai Romantika sebab nak beli pinggan untuk letak manisan yang Kak Qia nak sponsor. Then we move to Sayang You but we only manage beli butterfly jer. Lepas tu we move to another kedai kraft dekat-dekat situ jugak. Baru la jumpa gabus, glue gun and wrapping paper. Mama plak sempat beli bunga-bunga kecik nak tambah dekat vase nanti. Kami sampai rumah pun dah lewat malam. So sesi membuat d├ęcor kami sambung esok.

The next morning we try to wrap gabus with gold wrapping yang kami beli semalam. Biler I tengok, raser macam ade yang tak kena jer. Nasib baik hari ni abah nak keluar lagi. Kali ni pergi tesco plak. Abah nak completekan barang-barang untuk tempat sarung cincin nanti. So we follow abah to search for suit wrapping paper. We went out again. Masuk jer tesco klang, I’ve seen stall jual barang-barang vantage. Sangat menarik. Ade pomander ball. Sangat English ok. Lepas tu jumpe pail kecil yang sangat comel. Sesuai untuk letak bunga rampai ni. Hehe.Wrapping paper tak jumpa. Tapi abah dah beli 4 bantal besar. Cuma mama tak dapat nak decide kain untuk di jadikan sarung bantal besar tu nanti. So I meet mama to rescue. Mama tunjuk satin color hot pink. Owh no..not satin. Shining sangat rasernyer untuk sarung bantal tu. So pusing-pusing satu kedai, I jumpa kain mmg ala vantage then that’s it. Sarung bantal done! Tunggu Mak Lang siap jahit je. Before melangkah keluar dari tesco Klang i beli jugak pail kecil tu sebab dah frust tak jumpa candle holder yang matching.Hehe.

Lepas tu minta tolong abah drop kami kat Taman Perwira. Nak cuba tengok kalo ada riben and wrapping paper yang sesuai. But still tak ada. Yang ade cume doily paper. I just buy some in case boleh digunakan later. Then ajak abah ke jusco plak. Kat sini baru jumpe wrapping paper yang sesuai. Hehe. But still riben was too expensive kat Jusco.

Luckily, that day my kezen yang baru kahwin datang visit. So I sempat ask her maner nak cari riben yang cantik untuk hantaran. She said Semua House. Okay ..need to go there after work next week.So wanna know whether I manage to find the perfect riben or not gonna be next entry ok ...

Where Did I Go In December... ~ Part 2

My next destination was Langkawi. I sound like a traveller’s blog already rite? But it’s okay, since I’ve promise u all I’m gonna story where did I go in December, i’ll continue with that. Banyak sangat trip sampai tak terupdate rasernyer. Okay, let does continue.
This is not the 1st time I step my foot in Langkawi. If I’m not mistaken the last time I pergi Langkawi is when I was in my 2nd year in MMU. Long time huh...But there’s not much different with Langkawi as comparing to now.

We stay at Tok Jah homestay. We’ve got a good bargain since the home stay was under renovation when we were there…but still it is cozy to stay …3 bedrooms and 1 big bathroom with a big living room. Sesuai la untuk kami 12 orang ni berehat dan bermalam. We reached Langkawi about 5 o’clock in the evening. Masing2 pun dah kepenatan , so kami rehat sekejap kat home stay before we have our dinner. That night, Pantai Cenang was having Cenang Uptown 2009. There was a night bazaar, funfair and persembahan kebudayaan. After having our dinner and do some shopping we’re back to our home stay for a good night sleep.

The next day we had a Langkawi tour. We started with having our breakfast at Restoran Nasi Kandar Tomato (roti sardin yg sangat sedap), swimming at pantai cenang, lunch at Restoran Zulwari (makan ikan bakar fresh), visiting telaga tujuh but separuh jalan je sbb masing2 dh tak larat nak mendaki bukit yang sangat curam but we found air terjun yang sangat cantik and before ke kawasan beras terbakar we had a fresh coconut drink and last destination for the day was makam mahsuri.

2nd day in Langkawi was a shopping day. But before we start our shopping at Pekan Kuah, we’re heading to waterfall located near to telaga tujuh. The day before kan dapat tgk jer air terjun yang jernih dan cantik itu, so now its time to swim. Oops...Before mandi manda di air terjun we’re having our breakfast at Restoran Samila. Actually, we’ve been looking for nasi lemak that day but they don’t have it here. It’s a culture in Langkawi to have nasi campur during breakfast. So that day we had roti canai again but this time roti canai dier sangat la sedap. Instead of having one roti canai we’ve had two. I’m gonna remember this restaurant for its roti canai. Lepas penat bermandi manda di air terjun telaga tujuh and having some pictures at Marina Bay, we moved to Pekan Kuah. It’s shopping time!! Langkawi known for its duty free shop, so mmg sangat rugi kalo tak membeli belah kat sini kan. It’s my target to get my chocolate for hantaran here, so I bought some chocolate for my hantaran and gift for my friends. Instead of chocolate my parents bought 2 pieces of curtain, bed sheet and plates as preparation for my e-day. By the way we’ve got all those from a vantage shop..hehe..

The next day, it’s time to go back to KL but on the way we’ve had a stop at Padang Besar for another shopping spree. I know...I know...Shopping till u drop...hehe. We’ve reached KL about 1 o’clock in the morning. Then I need to wake up at 6 to go to work. Sangat penat.

Where Did I Go In December .. ~ Part 1

Last December was a very long breakaway for me. My weekend was fully booked with family agenda. Starting with my kezen’s wedding on 2nd week of December, followed by majlis bertandang to grooms hometown in Perlis and Langkawi trip the next week and last but not least trip to Makassar on December final weekend.

After one year of engagement, finally my kezen Madina tie the knot with her university sweetheart. Lucky her. The theme is white and pink. So cute. Hantaran pihak lelaki was black and pink and from her side was white and pink. And all our relatives wearing pink. So I think u should get the idea what I mean. It’s all pink on a pink day. The solemnization and reception was all done on the same day at UIAM, the place where they first met. Like always, when it comes to family Pak Long sure camera will be all over. Anak photographer la katekan. I love the set up for reception. Even though there’s no pelamin but she did a walkway from the hall entrance up to makan beradab table beautifully decorated with fresh flowers. Her mekap and dress were gorgeously done. Sumernyer adalah hasil kerja tangan Tepak Sireh bridal boutique and it is highly recommended by my kezen to me. Hee. I bet u know why.

Sempat jugak I’ve got some tips from her makeup artiste. First, for those who wanna have a flat tummy try to do a sit up and cycling bfore u sleep everyday. Cycling tu bukannya kene beli basikal senaman tu but when u lie down nak tdo, bfore pejam mata , buat la gerakan cycling. For sit up, I’m sure u all know how kan. Those rituals were good for your paha and tummy. However, discipline is very important bfore u can see a very good result. Actually bende ni dah jadi amalan dier through her life and I can obviously see from her body. Second, for those who has a skin problem please avoid seafood at least 3 months bfore the big day. This is to avoid from major breakout. Sebab dier cakap kalo major breakout ni cam susah sikit la nak cover. Lastly, don’t you ever forget to have a trial mekap from your makeup artiste bfore u decide to have them on your big day. At least u can have an idea how you will look like and discuss on how u wants your mekap to be. And that makeup artiste takde la syok sendiri. Hehe. And always show your makeup artiste that you know a lil bit about mekap so they will take seriously on how you’ll look like on the day.

The following weekend, we were heading to Perlis for majlis bertandang. Long road trip anyway. Bertolak 10 pagi sampai Perlis 12 pagi. Can u imagine? Macam-macam hal happen on our way to Perlis. The most unforgettable is we were stuck in a jam kat Gurun. Sumer kereta berhenti tak bergerak langsung. Siap boleh kuar kereta lagi. Rupa-rupanyer ade lori accident kat depan. Langsung abah and abang Johan made decision to patah balik ke exit yang paling dekat. So it’s like we have to berpatah arus. Then after we make that turn banyak jugakla kereta yang follow. Ingatkan biler dah make u-turn masalah dah selesai.Rupernyer tdak. We all tak boleh keluar ikut exit yang paling dekat. So we make our way to use the opposite road menghala ke KL.Tapi dalam hati masing-masing risau boleh ke nak kuar from highway ni sebab dah berpatah arah kan. Exit paling dekat is Sungai Petani. Then we use jalan dalam instead of highway yang jam. Alhamdulillah, we don’t have any problem when sampai kat exit Sg. Petani. Pak Long yang dah pun sampai kat Perlis keep on calling asking where we are. Rupe-rupenyer berita accident kat hentian Gurun kuar tv. Sangat penat. The funny part, my niece Mia, giginya patah mase makan mentos. Bole plak gigi yang patah tu terlekat cantik dekat mentos. She showed me her gigi yang patah. I just couldn’t bear her blood yang banyak tu. That’s my weakness. Rase pitam bile tengok darah yang banyak.

Majlis belah lelaki is more traditional. They’ve been wearing purple songket. Very nice color. Sesuai dengan suasana sawah padi and rumah traditional Perlis. I remember Kak Su said, songket would never go wrong on your wedding day. It just perfect. Special food to note, we have cocktails as desserts which is very nice. Very good idea to do on my wedding day. Hehe. After having photo session berpanoramakan sawah padi, we’re rushing to the jetty for Langkawi trip. Wanna know how my Langkawi trip would be? ..wait till my next entry k.. =)
