The Final Countdown

June 27, 2009

As of tonight, we are officially 7 days away from the wedding. Tears and fears aside, we would have to admit that it really is an exhilarating experience, one that this bride-to-be is beginning to savour amidst the stresses of logistics and planning.

It all came together tonight when we had our helpers’ meeting. It was humbling to know that our friends are so willing to give up time, weekends, birthday parties and after work drinks just to be with us tonight; who crawl over from the other end of the island after a 13-hour work day. Our fabulous wedding planners Kevin & Rachel ran the meeting seamlessly, our helpers were incredibly patient with us, and everyone was simply ace. We couldn’t ask for more!

So everything is falling into place, slowly but surely, and the bridal couple are waiting for these seven days to pass us by because we reckon that the Fourth of July is going to be an absolute blast – if not for anyone, at least for ourselves!

I don’t suppose there will be more posts coming up and if this space remains static till the day we become Mr&Mrs, well, thanks for dropping by and we’ll see you at our wedding!


with love from,

the bride & groom to be!


Swine Flu Humour

June 10, 2009

They say that when life throws you lemons, make lemonade, although I prefer to have my lemons with tequila and salt instead. So in light of the swine flu outbreak (in Melbourne, no less!), I thought we could do with a bit of humour to lighten things up a little (y’know – wedding, Melbourne, travel, Singapore, plane, quarantine – not very good prospects here now have we?). I couldn’t resist posting this up, courtesy of dearest friend D.

The Countdown Begins!

June 4, 2009

As of today, we’re officially a month away from our wedding! Just 30 more days to becoming Mr & Mrs, oh how time flies!

We start our leave in about a week and a half, and we leave Melbourne for Singapore in two weeks. We will be having our final bachelorette/bachelor parties respectively this weekend and after that, we will be heading towards the point of no return (gladly!)!

Meanwhile, we’ve collected the wedding bands, the suit will be finalised this week, we’re starting to pack up the house, and then before you know it, we’re all done!

This is getting exciting, and you know it is when you start getting nightmares, especially the really weird sort. There’s still a ton of things to get organised but nothing worth sweating over. All I can say is…BRING IT ON!
