The Dress, The Shoes & The Rings...

It's four days till the BIG day!! Thanks to all my daydreaming, the prep isn't at all a stressful matter. My head truly acts as a hard disk for all the important details...THE dais, THE hantaran (wedding gifts), THE dress, THE shoes, THE bridal bouquet, and of course THE ring!! The most important thing to a bride is definitely her dress. In my case, I was being so fickle minded on choosing a designer for my outfit to be worn on the solemnisation night. Well, I and the fiancé have decided that there will only be one reception for our wedding. Which is, the solemnisation ceremony. We plan on having a very small, decent, yet memorable ceremony. Nothing will be OTT except for my dress! Hahaaa...joking! So here's the list...

THE Shoes & THE Dress (His & Hers)

THE Make-Up 

The Hair

THE Rings 

THE Bridal Bouquet

THE Dais

Sorry there ain't much pics this time, folks. Pretty tied up to compile on pics!! But I promise you, I shall upload great ones soon!!! ~XOXOX~

The Hospital Shall NOT Be Our 2nd Home...

My daughter has been in and out of hospitals ever since the tender age of two. Her first admission was only due to high fever. But doctor was more concerned on the pneumonia and tonsillitis that came with it, as well as her asthma. That was four years ago at Sime Darby Medical Centre (formerly known as Subang Jaya Medical Centre). 
Recently, she was admitted for dengue fever also known as breakbone fever! It was indeed a shocker knowing she couldn't have got it from home as my mom especially (as well as the rest of the family), is very particular on the cleanliness of her surroundings. It couldn't be the baby-sitter's too since my daughter stop going there few months back. So most probably, it was at my grandpa's that Putri got bitten by the killer mosquito. Yes, I'm sure it was. She was there for a few days with her cousins during the school holidays. The fact that there are no vaccine or drugs available for preventing the infection, scares us the most. So doctors will firstly see the current level of the patient's blood platelet. From there, doctors will determine the next step of treatment. In my daughter's case, she was given fluids intravenously and the fluids carefully monitored to ensure that she does not get excess fluids. Next, they'll just monitor the platelet count on daily basis.
During my daughter's stay at the hospital, I was also told by some relatives and friends to feed her crab soup!! Believe it or not, it's a MUST-READ and worth trying!! Oh btw, Alhamdulillah that Azalea Putri recovered from her dengue fever and left for home after 5 days!! ~XOXOX~

Life Begins At 40?...

Happy 40th Birthday to my fiancĂ©!! If it's true what people brag...that life starts at 40, I seriously hope that it's for real. That he'll get his new 'beginning'. A new beginning to be shared with me. A new marriage (soon), new adventures, and hopefully a new happily-ever-after fairytale.

The birthday dinner was at The Hill, Damansara Heights. We didn't really had a plan on where to dine, so yes, it was a last minute pick. And thank God it they had a table for us being  on a Saturday night. 

From blogs around (which you can Google), I've been hearing bout the to-die-for ribs and their various unique cocktails! We had a go on their Caesar Salad, THE Brontosaurus Beef Ribs, and Watermelon Slush (alcoholic)! Oh, if you're dining alone, don't even think about coming here. Coz the foods were made to share! And do call and make bookings just so you wont be disappointed on not getting a table! 

And yes, the above is my gift for the birthday boy this year...a shiny purple (being his favourite colour) Zippo lighter! Now please don't preach to me if you think it's an unhealthy gift. At the back of it, was...



Here's wishing my husband-to-be to more great birthdays ahead, a unlimited health & wealth with all the love and blessings from Allah SWT. I love you, sweetheart... ~XOXOX~
