Long due post

It's already more than 3 months since our wedding day! Can't believe I haven't update my blog for such a long time! So much things had happened in this 3 months and now we are going to welcome a new member in this family. Yes, it's that fast! I can't believe it too! We wanted it to be natural and on God's timing and the timing came a bit faster than what we expected. Nevertheless, I am feeling really blessed with this new member.

Date 6 - it's mamak this time......

It's been a while since I last posted on our "lunch/dinner dates". Our dates have become more normal because we are now a bit tight with our financial due to the house renovation and also wedding preparation. But Oppah knows that I love food and are still trying his best to squeeze out a bit from the budget for us to enjoy good food once in a while...... 

We went Clay-pot Nasi Briyani few days ago. It's really delicious...... Just love to have sometime with Oppah when neither of us is focusing on the phone. Hahaha.

Suffolk house

It's a day worth remembering. Thus explain why I keep repeating this place in my blog. I just love the English feel of the building. 

Lemon & Ampula enzyme

After my 1st batch of mango garbage enzyme, this is my 2nd batch of garbage enzyme. It consist of lemon & Ampula. The 1st batch is still in 2nd month fermentation process and now started to lose the alcohol smell gasses. 

This new batch will not be as sweet in smell compared to the mango enzyme but will have a more tangy lemon smell with a hint of green grass smell from the Ampula.  Hopefully all will go well.

Date 5 - English afternoon tea

Actually, this should be a celebration instead of dating. It's our anniversary celebration + celebration that we are finally husband and wife. The Oppah brought me to Suffolk house for afternoon tea - English style. This is definitely the best afternoon tea I had n Penang! I love all the jams that they served! 

Oppah, I love this dating the most!

Another on-going project

This is the last look of my ROM hand bouquet rose. A minute after this photo was taken, the rose petals were removed from its stem and goes into the microwave to remove its moisture before making it into dried rose petals. 

I will post more on the steps after the whole drying process completed!

Wedding flowers

I have to admit. This is not exactly what I wanted for my wedding flowers! 
I wanted something more unique and less rosy. 

But the florist don't have anything else except roses and African daisy. I not sure whether they have any other flowers or not, or maybe just that I am not aware. Anyway, the florist non stop showing me roses after roses. Thus, this Marie-pink roses is the nearest to what I wanted. 

Although it doesn't end up like what I imagined it to be, it still served its purpose to be my wedding flower. In order to keep a souvenir for my registration ceremony, I have dried the rose petals. I have something in mind on what I want to do. Hopefully it will success. Will share more next time.

Ring pillow revealed

It's revealed......
This is the ring pillow that I get little Ed hold during my registration ceremony. 

As I expected, a lot of people commented its more baby theme than a wedding theme.

Really thankful to all friends that attended my registration of marriage today! 
I felt so blessed!

Homemade enzyme - Day 1

Learning to make my own enzyme from fruits skin. My first trial is with mango skin. Got the recipe from a colleague and decided to try out. The enzyme after fermentation can be used as dish drop or floor cleanser. It can be tiles cleaner also. Really eager to try out. 

Need to wait 3 months for complete fermentation. Just in time before my wedding.

Ring pillow - part 3

I completed the ring pillow in 3 hours! Felt so proud of myself! 

Decided to keep the actual outcome secret till 29th June. It shall be revealed with Edward holding it to the registration office. So far I only show it to my Oppah and also my sister. 

I am so satisfied with the outcome! Love it!

Ring pillow - part 2

It's button! 

Aren't they look cute? I know a toy rocker horse is actually more on a baby theme compared to a wedding theme. I really debated for quite long on whether should I get the butterfly or this .....

But eventually, I picked this because I just love the cuteness and also the dreamy feeling it gave. After all, it's my wedding. Can't wait to fix it to my ring pillow......

Ring pillow - part 1

After so many months of thinking but not doing, finally I start to do it. 

Halfway sewing the brim, I told myself to add sewing machine into the wish list. Sewing by needle is just so time and effort consuming.

Date 4 - it's a celebration!

It's a celebration for us. In another 1 month time, I will be legally Mrs. Chan. Oh no, just the thought itself still tends to creep me. Don't get me wrong, I love my Oppah a lot! But the thought of changing my status to a wife, daughter in law and sister in law of someone really freaks me out! I wish the time don't come so soon so that I have more time to adapt to the change. Luckily I still have another 3 months before the official wedding. 

We went for a date at secret recipe. I ordered yogurt cheese cake. Recently my mind is full of cakes with real fruits like fruit flan, strawberry marshmallow cakes, lychee cake, etc. I enjoyed the cake a lot, not because of the cake; but because of the company.

Date 3 - blackball

Oppah..... Thank you! Mucks! You know this is my favorite and always give in when I suggest to have my favorite black ball dessert.

Date 2 - big boy and little girl

Finally........ Date 2. Buffet breakfast at Genting hotel. 

Not that we do not have lunch or dinner together for the passed month; just that those normal lunches or dinners are not special enough to be recorded. 

I observed something really funny during our breakfast, Oppah taste is so mature while my taste bud is so little kid. See, he drinks cappuccino while I ate honey star! 

Looking forward to our 3rd date.

My recent favorite

This..... Is my recent favorite. Mango cake with real mango and yummy pandan crepe. 

I felt a bit guilty to had such sinfully delicious cake and thus complained that I need to start to reduce food intake and on diet. But Oppah disagree. He said, every time I decided to on diet, his weight will increased....... Because I just taste a bit of my food and pushed the rest to him.... Hahaha.

Pin cushion

Ya.... I finally have time for craft! This week I have a full week offsite training. Thus, I have more time in return as my personal time. 

I wanted to do something for my wedding registration next month. Something personal that can bring out my character. After much thought in this, I decided to work on a ring pillow and get my nephew, Edward to be my Paige boy that day! However, it's been a couple of months since I last work on my sewing skill, I decided to start with something smaller and insignificant first. 

I needed a pin cushion for a long time. Thus, decided to start with a pin cushion. It took me less than a minute to decide on the design. Cloud is my sis favorite and I been really good at doing designs related to cloud. Thus, it ended up as a cloud motif pin cushion. 

Next, is to work on the ring pillow for me and Oppah wedding. Maybe I shall start tomorrow....... If I still can get the passion fire burning...... :)

A friend

This afternoon, I met up with an old friend..... A very close buddy......
I can't imagine that 18 years have passed since the day I knew her......
A lot have changed. But I am glad that our friendship remained. 

Thank you Lord for blessing me with a friend like Joyce.

Thanks for the fresh air

It's been a while since my last outdoor activity. Those that know me well knew that I don't really like outdoor activities. My skin is too sensitive to go under the sun. Sometimes I even felt sick after a few hours under the sun. Despite my dislike towards the tropical weather in Penang, I still do treasure this opportunity for me to breath in some fresh air. I felt so much more refreshed after a morning of clean and natural air. 

Photo taken my working place team building at Penang tropical spice garden.

An afternoon tea with my best buddy

I am always very grateful to be blessed with having a few very good buddies. Suchie is definitely 1 of them. We knew each other during university times and we were even housemates. She had been a great sister to me. Teaching me; giving me advices; encouraging me ..... The list can go on and on. I still can remember how disappointed I was when she told me that she wants to move back to KL. 

Anyway, she came out last weekend for voting and we spend some quality time together. An afternoon tea session definitely sounds like an activity we both adores. Life without friends is really boring. I am glad that I am blessed with not one but a few.

Another 53 days to ......

Date - 1

Was inspired by a blogger friend, Jane to record down each special date between me and my fiancé, whom I always refer him as Oppah in my blog.

We just finished our pre-wedding photo shooting. It was really tiring but I guess we just enjoyed every bit of it. Thank God for the good and sunny weather! The weather forecast was showing raining but I just prayed to God to just show the sun. And the sun not only showed but shined too bright till sometimes it was pretty hard for me to open my eyes. And i was sweating too! Well, I guess I shouldn't complain. Sunny day is definitely better than a rainy day!

After everything finished, we allowed ourself to be more relax, and went for crepe cottage. Look at the photo below and you know how much we enjoyed ourself to a mango crispy crepe!

Love having 2 person date like this!

Again. We fight over the same religion problem again. I have already sacrifice and compromise so much! What I ask is just 1 agreement from you! And yet you told me it can't be achieved. You even told me you will not be happy for the rest of your life if you give in. I am just speechless now. Are you too self centered or am I asking too much?

Don't think tears is gonna help. But I just can't help it.

Tiffany bed sheet

It's amazing how sisters are connected emotionally. My sis got me a birthday gift that I just love till max. The color is exactly something I wanted for my new room. The amazing part, I never share with her that I plan to use this color as the main color scheme for my new room.

Love you sis!

Blessed with .......

Alphabet stamp

The alphabet stamps are actually not mine. It's my mother's. I am not too sure why she needed it but I realized that I have 3 sets of alphabet stamp and another 3 sets of figures stamp. All in different sizes. They are really very nice to play with. Although they are old(probably older than me), they are kept very well and still functioning well. It's 1 of my favorite recently. I made a bunch of Christmas cards to my friends last Christmas with their name stamped. Pairing the stamps with some colorful stamp pad I bought from Michael's store, it's just amazing.

Washi tape storage

Seems like my iPhone 5 empty box is a suitable box to store all my tapes!

Washi tape

Checkout my first purchase of washi tape! Aren't they look adorable? I bought this from a church friend who is doing online craft store business. The price is slightly higher than Amazon. Since the oppa is in US now, I have placed an order of another set of washi tape at a much lower price. Can't wait to receive those tape!

This makes me start to ponder. Since the oppa travels to US so frequent, should I start to venture into this business and startup my own online craft store. Hmmmm....... I guess this needs to wait till after the wedding. My time should be pretty occupied with wedding preparation and house moving.

Check out the washi tape. It's just so beautiful.

It's <3 everywhere!!

This is what I did for the oppa during valentine's day. It might look like a simple card but it took me whole night to complete it because I have to punch out the heart shaped using a craft punch then glue them together to form a bigger heart. Although its time consuming, the outcome is just so satisfying. The look that I got from the oppa after I gave him is even more satisfying.

I am so glad to have found someone who is ever so supportive towards my hobby. Thank you sweetheart!

It's a trip!

The oppa decided to bring me for a tour to Ipoh to celebrate my birthday plus meeting his dad who stays at his hometown. My birthday is still 2 weeks ahead but the oppa will be leaving to US (again?!) for a month and won't be able to celebrate with me.

Whole weekend was spend eating, eating, visiting some craft store, then eat, eat again and eat again! As a conclusion, there are nothing much we can do in Ipoh except eat!

Of course, what is a birthday celebration without a birthday present? Love it!

Thank you, dear.

Silk tape

Washi tape have been a hit item for quite a while. Been really wanted to get some for my craft project but the price of a washi tape is not cheap in Malaysia. It's selling at around RM10.90 per roll. Thus, when I saw this silk tape in Daiso today, I just can't resist to get 1 set. A set like this just cost RM5. Can't wait to start using them!

Heart shaped pancake for special day!

This is an overdue post. I made heart shaped pancake as breakfast for the oppa on the day he proposed to me! I kinda knew that he is going to propose that day. Thus, decided to make the life simpler ( or harder ) by making heart shaped pancake.

How I know he gonna propose that day? Sometimes, girls just know it! Hahaha.

Trick to capture your lover heart?

This is the latest trick I found. The "coin dozer" app in my mum's iPad. It works the wonder to capture the oppa's heart and let him sit still (to be accurate -- lie still) till I get my work done. Another amazing part of the game is that the oppa keep saying "I am going to win you this ring!" (Referring to the ring prize inside the app). If only the ring is real or perhaps redeemable from the game store!

Oppa, this is just a virtual game! No real ring involved!

Valentine's celebration

My last Valentine's day before the wedding. It was just a very simple dinner. Actually something happened during the dinner. He wasn't feeling well and didn't let me know because he do not want to spoilt my night. And me, thought that he do not like my choice of food selection. Eventually that leads to a meltdown. When he finally told me the reason through the phone after send me home, I cried. Felt so bad that I wasn't sensitive enough to realize that. But I guess we both learn something; me learning to be more sensitive while he should be more open in telling me his feelings.

Looking for peace

Recently been struggle with a lot of different questions and worries. So much that I started seeking for more peaceful lifestyle. Start to wonder will my life be more easy if I start seeking for a simpler lifestyle and follow his advice to be a normal person?
