Hello Universe!

Welcome ... henceforth, will be mostly about Our Story and hopefully more decades of stories ahead of us,
in this now-life-long journey of marriage, and yeah, maybe that includes all the bling-blings in between. =)

About 10 yrs of long (and sometimes twisted) engagement...then just got civilly married in 2009...
and we just did it again in a church, exactly a year after --- last 28th of July 2010 @ 3pm
---a dream come true vintage themed wedding!!! Hooray!!!

Deadliest Deadines this May!!!!

Staring at my google calendar, apparently all weekends seems to be booked either with client shoots or piles of edits, huh? Uhmmm..anyway....still...the following list below MUST be DONE!!! Otherwise, I'm doomed! tsk tsk

1. Must start (i think i told myself a million times on this, ooops!) and FINISH design of DIY Guestbook *wink*

similar to this in mind...
2. Collaboration with buddy Dimps and my hubby for the logo/monograms for wedding invites/table cards/etc --- *ahem, now a bragging wife coz husband just made me a lovey logo for my photography site here! ♥*

Hunt my wedding shoes/flats/boots/oxford? *eyes rolling hehe*

You know i actually adore this....it gave me some thoughts hehe but i know most won't agree...hihi
4. Hunt hubby's handsome-ness suit! *at least we've found his vintage-y shoes already! Yiiiyyy!*

5. Deal with what wedding favors to give! Why can't I just think of 'something'! *big cry*

6. Find us a jazz/bossa band (as budget is tight though, if this plan fails, hope the jukebox comes as a rescue hihihi)

I imagine how awesome they'd be set up like this... * oh dreamin' away *
7. Oh, wait --- must book Church choir,too!

8. Church requirements pending to submit *big gulp*

9. Desperate to find 'wooden chairs for rent' yet for the reception! *big big cry*
10. Prenup Part 2 ---- OVERDUE! I'm supposed to have our self-portraits done but but but....my client shoots and my procrastination got in the way! *biggest cry* Hehehe

11. ENTOURAGE --- must fill in all the blanks for the assignments!!! *can I faint now?* =)

Oh dear ..oh dear.... 11 items to crash out?

La la la la....
All things are POSSIBLE!
*mantra today and tomorrow and the day after...la la la*

Early Wedding Gift, Yey!!!

Amidst so much to do yet for the wedding preparations, I have to at least blog this.
Well, why because we got our earliest wedding gift from my bff Yvon!

Free Concert Tickets to LISA ONO LIVE in Singapore!
Oh my I can scream HAPINESSSSSSSSS!!!!
I have missed Bebel Gilberto's Apr 19th concert and I just died knowing I couldn't make it. =(
Then came an uplifting news, found out thru friend Vanessa that someone else was coming to town.... weeeeeeeh!
For anyone who doesnt know her, Lisa Ono is a Japanese-Brazilian bossanova singer. Her official site: http://www.onolisa.com/

Don't wonder how much I love Lisa! least to say BOSSA & Jazz *as big as my grin shows perhaps?* =)
This is me and the hubby, while waiting at the lobby before the concert started. Teehee!
The husband is not originally a fan, but he's there to tag along with my craziness! =)

Throwing big hugs to Yvon now for the great treat!!!! Luv yahhhhhh!!!
♥ ♥ ♥

Who's back?

Me. Hah! =)
Sorry for the long absence since I left for Cebu homebound preps.
You don't need to hear my 'always busy' line of excuses *tongue out*

Let's get straight ahead down to business. Where do I start recheckin' my list huh?

1. I've visited again our wedding reception area at Vistamar --- last time I was there around 2006 and the moment I stepped there again --- I knew, it's meant to be it!

Here's beachfront I just took quickly of...
2. MIRACLE DRESSMAKER. Talk about miracle? My dearest wedding planner friend Tisha has helped me find one miracle dressmaker who can make my dream boho-vintage dress...and looks like the lace works are now work-in-progress!!! Woop! Let's hope everything turns out as they should be when I fit it! Haha *big big grin*

3. Videographer: booked and happy coz my super8mm style/themed will be realized soon! Yey!

4. HMUA. Met my make up artist and had my hair done and all that ---my hair was all curly at the tip and I soo luv it...but for the make up? uhmmm i need to tell you how naive I was --really --- I'm just not into make up since birth hahaha -- so it appears that it turned out not much of a success yet. Well, we're doing a trial make up again when I get back to Cebu to work on my ignorance. Hahah no panic-mode on that yet! =)

5. Hotel dress up. We're booking "BE Hotel" (formerly Microtel) in Cebu. I fell in love with the minimalism of this pretty pretty place.
Oh yeah, meet my wedding planner friend Tisha and her hubby Teody. I couldn't have done much of the preps in Cebu without them!

And happy to meet our lovely florist, Sheila. So much to look forward to our styling ideas for the shabby-chic-vintagey reception!!!
6. Parent's Gown/Suit. All will be taken cared of by a family friend. Our mom's would look fab with these, won't they? =)

7. The Jukebox. Found it thru Teody. Hah! all along Teody knew where to find one and it's at one of the best dining place in Cebu, Casa Verde! Haha. But we haven't asked the owner how much to rent it --- just all gleeful when I saw it! can't imagine not having one in the reception you see! =)
8. Cupcake Tower & Food Food Food. These wouldn't be a problem as I discussed with Kusina Habana,too. Food tasting will have to be scheduled next time I get home before the wedding event.

Well well well, look how much we've achieved on my visit huh? *winks at Tisha!*
But why am I feeling that tingling 'thing' in me now? *glimpsing at the countdown*

85 days to go???!!!! Eng eng eng

I should hunt for my wedding shoes now, right? And oh finalize the wedding invites...and oh buy the groom his suit,too! Oh dear. *grin*
