I had to go through this because Arif photographer friend can't make it to our solemnisation and wedding ceremony at my side (sigh!!!!).
Some photographers actually published wedding packages price....again...hugh sigh!!!The price is VERY VERY PRICEY!!! I don't think my fiance would ever appreciate it...after he ask me to cut back on almost everything (downward loopsided grin).
*I'm in a moody mood now...everything feels utterlessly WRONG.....
But still, this is something I can not do without....I suppose I have to find a way to get it.
Anybody has any recommendations???Would appreciate some help here!!!!
Still, I just can't help but love these photographers...
1. Nurul & Suhaimi...they are just great.Had the chance to see them work on Azlina's wedding...just dig them! <http://www.nurulsuhaimi.com>
2. KidChan...hmm, who are we kidding here, right? <http://kidchanstudio.com>
3. Batrisya - his latest wedding photo's on the web look superb!!! <http://www.batrisyia.com>
4. Ke Wyn - though his photos looks nice, there is no Malay Wedding photos available for wiewing. Still, its a good one. <http://kewyn.com>
5. MagicClickers <http://www.magicclickers.com>
These are top 5 photographers I viewed today....u guys can view them via the URL link.
Nasib baik akak tak kena panic attack!!!
**Raf, kata nak pas photographer ko kat aku, mana nye???
I had breakfast, and read the morning papers. Fatigue from yesterday 4 hour karoke session at RedBox was kicking in (the session, though fun, is tiring).I barely had adequate sleep...since I only manage to only doze of sometime at 2am.
Then my fiance called.
Since I got a message from Maxis today,screaming "U had reached the CREDIT LIMIT!Pay up or we'll BAR u!"....I then informed my dearly beloved that I my line will may soon be barred.
Then he goes "Maybe u should just cut back" and "i noticed u talk too much with your friends over the phone - maybe you should just cut it short and not do that anymore" so to speak.
That's like sentencing me to hell after the recently "Honey...U should cut down shopping!" (in which I did....depressingly!).
I'm already at the verge of tears...
Besides....I can trace majority of my calls to:
1.Him - yeah, especially to cater all the call me backs missed calls,and once (at least) in the morning to say good morning, once during lunch time and once before I go to bed....just maybe I should just not do all those anymore...sob sob!!
2.My mom (of course, I have to call my mom to check on her, and you expect me to only talk to my mom what, less than 10 minutes?),and;
3.The girls...and I don't even call them daily....
So after making me endure a painful time to contain myself from a hobby that makes me happiest....you expect me to turn to a hermit????
Aargh!!!I don't understand why I am in love with you!

The guy...found dead by electric shock was toast and suffered from 100% burn....sprawling on the floor, with gooey black thing (like oil) underneath his body.
*I shall not display the gory picture in my blog...to save everyone from it...
First and foremost...why the hell are these people clever enough to steal from a high voltage mini station? Not scared of electricution? You can even get electricuted if you steal a phone cabel....mind you, this is a TNB ministation!!!
That is just a pitiful way to die...now another ghost must be lingering somewhere...all shocked and confused...
OK, that's it for a tea-time story...cya all tomorrow!!!
Unfortunately my project (the one I'm suppose to be working on) is (again) put on halt....and I am (again) sitting aimlessly.Maybe I should pick up a hobby other than blogging...that somehow can occupy my time (while I am waiting), increase knowledge and skills (it obviously need to be benefecial for me right) and good enough to make me look good at work.
I have long since offered my services to a friend of mine to help on his accounting and consulting services jobs. Of late, I feel my experience had not been put to the test....and cobwebs and dusts are thickining over my under used brains. Not to say that I have nothing to do at all, its just that sometimes I wish there is something more that I could do, you know what I mean?
*oh..to date he still haven't called me...i suppose he didn't need any help...sigh...
And having a cuppa craving while I dwell over the feeling does not help.
Back when I was doing audit, I rant excessively on lack of time, enjoyment, space...call it whatever you want...after 4 years or so, the job was eating me up and there was just too much. Not that I hate audit...I love what I did, its just that the workload was at times a bit too much.
Now that all the loads are off...I'm ranting again. The spare time is good, with me having to prepare and think about my wedding, I still manage to get to go home, spend some me time, go out and have fun with my fiance and meet my friends. But it's making me feel bad because I feel that there is no leverage for me to further advance.
Whatever Bailey say about my career line, I personally think that there is a part of me that is independant and ambitious. I want to be able to stand on my own two feet, contribute to my family and derive satisfaction from what I do. Not being able to progress does not satisfy me.
*So I'm brushing off Bailey's prediction that I am going to be a "tai tai"... it just doesn't make sense!
But then I can't blame them if there's nothing to assign me to...or the job can't go through...sigh!!!!huge sigh!!!
Coffee cravings don't make me feel good..
My cousin Bailey is in town (again). Felt bad that I can't meet him on Friday night....we (being Raf, Zeti and myself) cancelled our clubbing plans since Raf and Zeti had something going on. I then decided that I'd love to have a night at home and sleep in early...after all the hectic wedding weekends I'd been having since July 1st.August will be just as hectic....with my kursus kahwin and wedding registry forms still screaming to get over and done with, my close cousin wedding in Kuala Pilah on the 18th and Fadli's wedding at Kelantan on the 23rd...jeez...not to forget Tina's engagement on the 1st of Sept....there's just so little time left for myself....
So I brave the rain on the Friday night and settled comfortably at home, and for the first time in months I finally manage to get to enjoy my lavender foot soak and foot scrub.....and my BodyShop African Spa Mineral Body Scrub. Truly refreshing....
Nothing much happened on Saturday...went to meet up a friend during the day...just spent the whole day lazing at her home and watch TV.
Later, met Bailey, David and Fiona at the new restaurant...Apartment....at the Curve...and had a good dinner.
The food was ok....but though the price looks reasonable in the menu, the serving is quite small. We ordered prawns, baked fish and pasta to share....and had chocolate mousse and peanut butter & kaya crepe for desert...the desert, I LOVE!!!!!!!
But if you are ever planning to go there...be equipped with a lot of patience, because the serving is super slow (despite the manager trying to reassure us that the food will only take 2 minutes to prepare....seriously, I waited almost half an hour for my ice water, what the F????).
*Sorry peeps...no pics of food was taken....so excited meeting my cuz that it slipped my mind....
That's kudos for good (ok la) food....the company on Saturday night was superb.
Bailey, in the attempt to impress Fiona, showed off his palm reading skills....
Ade ke he said that I'm going to go through a tough marriage and since my career line is barely visible, maybe I'm meant to be a tai tai...(erm...mak datin la so to speak).Hmm....but then to come to think of it...who mind being a mak datin if you have tonnes of dosh to spare???Hehe... thinking for a moment that money can buy everything....what a dream...
We called it an early night...because I have a 9 am date with Tina tomorrow...hehehe
I'm so excited to meet Tina....finally, we get to catch up!
But she's a no show.
Her mom had an athma attack and she's at the hospital with her.
Nevertheless, I had a good morning at CB Bangsar Village 2....I only left when I had my Egg's Ben Breakfast, 2 cuppa's and done with the Star and Sunday Times.
*oh Tina....this is the Coach bag I am dying to show u....nice eh???*
Since there is no chance in meeting Tina....I head to Urban Retreat for an aromatheraphy thai massage....man it still feels good.
Later...I hung out for a while with a long lost friend I bumped into at the Curve on my way back....then met Arif for a while and had a rootbeer float at A&W PJ.
By 5.30pm...I'm driving chirpily home to get ready for Raf's sister reception dinner at Sheraton Subang....all in all....man, what a nice day......

After 10 years of marriage....once again another Malaysia's favourite star had followed the footsteps of NurAniza Idris, Nurul & Ajai, Aziz M.Osman and Sheilla Majid....its like divorce fever is running around the local celebs.
They always seems to look happy...in fact...she looks happy in all the SKII ads running on tv.
Sigh!!!I guess we outsiders can never judge how long a marriage can last..and she is one good actress to be able to mask all the public attention. Macam Nurul....
But why??? Nobody knows, and she won't tell...same case time dia bercerai with Budriz la, but then Budriz's philandering ways are public knowledge by the time it was all over...
Agaknya bila Siti Nurhaliza punya turn pulak???Dengar kata dah retak...though she denies all wrumours...especially of late when it was said that her hubby, Dato'K, hit her. Maybe the trip to Bali was great after all kan...and Siti is more or less macam my friend Gina kan....which explains the denial...perhaps...
OK, better not speculate.Tak pasal2 aku kena saman nanti. Pada sesapa yang kata ni solid fact....ni aku letak disclaimer awal2....ni personal opinion k...sebab tu ada word perhaps tadi...sebab it doesn't originate from any sources, just publicly known gossips - so I'm just stating the possibilities. Nanti mak masuk mahkamah macam Sharifah Aini nanti mana nak kaut duit bayar lawyer.
But this is not about Siti...this is about Gee.
Takpe la...maybe this is meant for the best. From all the fans out there, hope you are strong to go through whatever shit you're going through...plus whatever people say, they can talk as much as they like, you shouldn't bother coz they are not in your shoes. Nobody can judge you over the decisions that solely rest in both of you.
But I suppose you already knew that...
Hmmm....3 budak TS terlepas pergi Hush Puppies warehouse sale at Armada Hotel, PJ during lunch hour.
The sale started at 10 am...but who the hell can go that early?People have to earn a living here so that we can buy shoes....heheheh!
We arrived at the scene by 12.30 noon, the place packed, but still bearable (unlike FJ Benjamin's warehouse sale...that's craziness!!!)....but we are a bit unfortunate...though the time is still considered early by all means, most of the shoes are already out of size.
I manage to grab myself 2 pair of sandals...flatties la...tak larat la mak nak pakai high heels dah...dah berusia ni...at a very reasonable price. Komala can't find a thing (being among people at a famous shoe size category...thus, the size cepat habis) and Wei Liew found himself one leather shoe.
*line starting at the cashier counter*
*sape kata orang kebanyakan je pergi warehouse sale???*
Guess who i met at the sale?Cuba tengok betul2....Farah Fauzana la. Dia ingat in that pink baju kurung and oversized sunnies she can hide and nobody will notice...damn wrong ok...
Man it rocks!!
I got myself a pair of cotton pj's that is very comfy (at 70% off), a corset to match my see through kebaya (from the Sexy Lingerie Range....going at 50% off) and a pair of lace/crochet black night gown. All in all I only spent Rm200....so worth it ok....
Too bad they don't have the yoga pants no more...sigh!!!
Most of you won't know Gina (bukan nama sebenar...obviously la, what do u take me for?), because she came from another circle of friends I know from school ( that I rarely hung out with). For those of you who hadn't had the pleasure to know Gina, here's a snapshot of facts on why she's our highlight for the day:
1.She looks like a very nice girl - at times softspoken, looks sweet, all the package - yet be deceived not - she's very vicious and she eliminates everything that goes along the way (yeah! the ELIMINATOR!!!!!! ).
2. She's so ambitious, she ditched her then boyfriend (very loyal person, head to heels in love with her and would die for her very honor, seriously, no kidding) for another's fiance....though the guy is a Class A Cassanova and is engaged, she manage to somehow change his mind, get him to ditch his fiance and marry her. On the question as to why she find this guy her "Mr Right", she quote ..."he's loving, charming and in fact the most sophisticated guy" she ever met.
*hmm...I don't think it cross her mind that the guy was no longer available to her at that time...plus if I was her (hmm, don't want to be, but if la...), I wont want to be anywhere near a guy who profess himself a Class A Cassanova and flirts like hell in front of his own fiance. And yes, I know his rich and a son of somebody somebody, but money can't buy everything right and a man is only good and worthy if he can stand up his own name, not his forefathers.
*by the way, the ex-boyfriend, John (also bukan nama sebenar) is now happily married to another girl, who love him just as much and treats him better than Gina. He settled down quietly and nobody ever made a fuss about him...cool.
3. After she got married, everybody thought its one "happy ending".....but jeez, this is one juicy "ever after" coming up....
How Karma Catch Up With Gina....
Sometimes, to talk about what Gina is facing now is pretty scary, though fun to chat about. Yet, maybe all of us can learn something from her experience...though Gina , herself, never seem to realise any wrong in her life so far. Let's just be like a person looking into fish bowl....Gina being the blowfish in it...on how cruel life can be....
# After she got married, she found out that her husband like thin and very skinny women. That's a trait he looks in every girl he fell interest upon. So she starve herself day in and day out...most of the time having only a bundle of fruits for lunch and nothing else for dinner. Yes, she got a 45kg body she dream of on her 5 feet height....but that's a little bit too overboard right? Mana ada org lepas kawin makan hati?
#Her husband still continues with his Casanova ways. He still refuse to give up flirting and he reason it out to his wife by saying that its this girls that has been into him, not the other way round. She blindly trusted him.
He remains in contact with a girl he admires (that had also later married to someone) and constantly bugging her in the middle of the night, while Gina's voice became the background music to his call. The girl's husband had to warn him to stay away from his wife!
He still find pleasure in dating thin and skimpy girls....and calls them and ask them out whenever possible. Another girl who caught his attention, who in fact irritated of his way, also claims that he frequently calls her after working hours with Gina's voice at the background, sometimes talking with the in-laws. Her boyfriend gave him a warning too...but he refuse to budge. I guess he thinks that there is no threat in warning of a boyfriend, as oppose to warning of a husband.
# Gina is in constant shadow of the woman in her husband's dreams, Luna (bukan nama sebenar), making her the benchmark of each and every action or decision she make. She have to have the same bag/shoe/outfit.....even better.....the same thing in all colors....with the cost of it driving her husband the Cassanova nuts of the way she is spending dosh.
I can never live in the shadow of another woman....if a man is in love with me, it's gonna be alone...not "together" with a ghost of his imagination. Even worse when the ghost is so much alive, working in the same department, sitting in front of you...and you get to watch she trots around happily every day, not bothering about you. Felt so invisble and useless....never will I put myself so low...never....
#Plus because of the above....trying to match Luna in every way attempt...she ends up spending so much money on stuff she doesn't need.
Imagine...Luna likes a pair of pumps at Kedai A....she starts getting the craze over the pump, and decided to get it herself. When she get to Kedai A, she realise that "oh!I think the pump look nice too in black, and Luna only has the one in red"...so to speak la.Since she can't make up her mind on which is better than the other, she ended up buying the crazed pumps in black, red(the one Luna got), not to mention in blue and all other available colors. If one pump is RM100, when Luna only cost herself so much to buy the pumps, Gina's cost multiplied by ...erm...you do the maths la.
So every Friday, she'll be sitting at her desk doing her maths....to balance out all her dues on shopping she had done so extravagantly.
Every Friday worried of credit card bills?That's pure torture babe, everybody knows that.
Some people find shopping a solace....a substitute to the depressed feelings we keep inside us, we gain pleasure by making a purchase, get a new make-up kit, where a new dress. Maybe Gina had no means of expressing her depression, constantly bugged by Luna's shadow, craving for her husband's attention....maybe despite the happy interior she's projecting to the public, deep inside she is just another lonely women.
Then she found out her's ex's wife was pregnant......
When she found out that John's wife, Alia (juga bukan nama sebenar, coz I can't recall his wife's name)....was pregnant, she got a shock of her life!
How could Alia....be pregnant, when she, married to another guy way earlier than John and Alia, is not???
*this is where I gave Vanida the "look" - I always thought that Gina never wanted to be pregnant. When Luna and Vanida was pregnant last year, she commented that she will never ever want to be pregnant, for she hate it if she'll look like a cow - all bloated, doubled....in case her hubby would not love her anymore because she's not skinny and thin (duh!!!as if he loves you now?)
The idea of her getting a shock surprised me....
But maybe God have other plans for John and Alia's baby....few weeks in the pregnancy, she had a miscarriage.
And the evil bitch clapped her hand and laugh. And she further said " I don't think they could ever make it...besides, Alia is not as beautiful as I am".
That is super CRUEL ok....now I hate Gina more than Bellatrix Letsrange.
And so to prove that she is better...she claims to everyone that she is trying to conceive, and month after month is another excitement of bearing a child. But so to pseak, a few months had passed but she's still not bearing one....there you go....
To make it even worse, the husband denied all rumors of them trying to conceive a baby.
What an arse!
Lesson to be learnt.....
1. Never marry a Cassanova - you'll be just inviting misery to your life
2. Never snatch another girl's man....you wouldn't know when your's will be snatched.
3. Find a guy who loves you for who you are, not who you can be...because if it's the latter, there's no content, there's always a never ending need to change because you are never really the person he sets his mind on.
4.Don't find pleasure in other people's misery...especially a miscarriage. Gina, what are you thinking?Why must you laugh and clap when John was sad over his loss. Hey, you dump the guy years back, and now you're vindicating his loss over you...as if he had done wrong???U calim him to be not so good enough for you...so scramp and move on with your Mr Right...leave him alone!
5. Payback for our deeds is paid by cash by God Almighty...he doesn't trust Visa and Mastercard....so no more credits to be taken to the after life I suppose.
*Dear God....I wish for forgiveness in advance and please...please, make me a better person out of this...I am but human....*
6. Count your clessings and be contented with what you have...sometimes what you wish for is not the best thing for you, let's not fail to realise that what each and everyone of us have at the moment is unique to our own and if we make the best out of it, we will be better off....at least better than Gina...
7. To all my friends....gosh I love u guys so much!If in any way you find yourself in Gina's shoes(straving yourself out, in denial of a cheating man, depressed and heavily reliant on retail therapy)...please do something....talk to us girls, be supportive, take charge of your life and change!You deserve better babes...because we are all educated and liberated women who can fend for ourselves and think of better things in life...we don't deserve to put ourself in this rut.
8. To Gina...if you ever suddenly find your way to reading this...get a life!

Then Gopi left for tea without me, Wei Liew and Komala pulak busy, so I am left alone, with no one to entertain me.
So to keep myself busy,I snap a pic of the Cole Haan brochure...sebab gatal nak tunjuk kat everybody the bag...then while updating my blog, found our latest pics in my phone, the one we took last 2 weeks while waiting for Nazira, the girl that willbe making my cuppies for my wedding to come at Secret Recipe...so saje nak kongsi.
*tengok...dia suka buat muka budak terkejut....saje je...do u know that in most of our pics together, he'll be wearing this exact same expression until i force him not to?? I hope my kids don't inherit this*
So we started at Tods, went around the 1st floor shops -TODS,Coach,Gucci, Prada, LV, Hermes, Chanel, Ferragamo, Dior - then went to the Melium group boutiques for Furla, Cole Haan and Aigner....we even paid Stuart Weizman for a visit, in case I can find "the" shoe.
The first few stores we went to does not interest either one of us...to come to think of it, we are a bit dissapointed with the choices they have. The Coach Bag I adore so much doesn't seem to feel right at the moment...it looks...hmm, how should I put it...normal.
Any bag above RM2k bag can't feel just "normal"....it has to feel great. Even the bags in TODS is a bit of a dissapointment. Of course, lets not go to the fact that it's overpriced but lets just say that there is not much of an attraction there....
After a while we decided to brave through shops that I never thought of setting foot in - Furla & Cole Haan. All this while I thought bags in these shops are only made for Mak Dat's - and the only person I know that carry their bags is my Aunt Aggie - damn she's nuts for Furla bags....
Then there it is, Cole Haan's Village Triple Satchel Bag, in white, at the second row corner at the left hand side of the shop...just beaming....both of us instantly fell in love....but ika is warned not to get anywhere near it....that bag is mine!!!! The leather felt perfect, everything seems just right.To illustrate the bag to everyone, I manage to get one of the net in black...hmm, not a personal choice but boleh la.... retail price is set at RM1750....no discount since Cole Haan is not on sale.
Takpe takpe.....mana tau kan...maybe one day it'll be on my shoulders...hehehe..

I am almost done now, but after 4 hours sitting on a chair reading and a platefull of curry ayam and rice for lunch, I found myself very sleepy. Now I remember why I prefer reading on my comfy bed at home....sigh.....it must be good to be on my bed, with my HP book, just tossing and turning around....
Nevertheless, I have a quest...a quest to finish the novel by the end of the day and be rid of all this questions that has been playing over my head non-stop since Half Blood Prince.
Yet, I can't help but think of my comfy bed and pillows at home....

After, I just laze at Starbucks for a few hours, blogging on the weekend weddings.....until Raf joined me. We later went shopping (she just need to splurge and by tonnes of new clothes to wear...she shrunk from size 10 to 6, makan hati...heheh!).Tried my best not to dent my wallet, pay ain't banking till Thursday (sigh!!!!). Then we had dinner at Idaman with Shaz, Babat and Bayak.
