It slowly approaches...

for us to say 'I do'... 'till death do us apart'...
1 more week to go...

I'm feeling all jittery.. excited.. and nervous..

I wonder if I can be at my most beautiful.. despite the permanent-resident acne scars.. and stubborn fats that dont wanna go away.
I wonder if the makeup artist can do her magic on my pathetic skin..
I wonder if the dress can make me look 1kg slimmer..

I wonder... if... I will make a fool out of myself on that day (typically... I always do something silly or idiotic everyday.. )

It's a weekday.. I wonder if my friends are taking leave to see my marital status changed from single to married.. (like as if I'm gonna change from Ms to Mrs.. I shall still remain as Ms)
Whichever it is, I know a few of my close colleagues and my best buddy is taking leave to celebrate with me.. and my other colleagues already expressed their keeness to join in (despite having to work on that day, and our operations cant really allow everyone to go on half day.. er.. maybe when the time comes for my boss to get married, we will self-proclaim 1 day off just for her :P )

I have to go redo my hair colours, re-perm my hair by this week.. I think the best part is my hair liao.. so.. at least everyone can focus more on my hair than the face/ fats. LOL~
I have to at least attempt to go on a crash diet (perhaps) so that I can get to alter even more during my final fitting of my dress on 31st.


We went to The Central to get our wedding bands.. while others opt for gold, platinum, titanium etc with lotsa diamond, we ended up choosing with the same taste... a simple pair of bands made from silver, engraved with the words "Make My Dream Come True". The band has 2 rings, criss-crossed at the correct angle where at a certain angle, it looks like a heart shape. They are designed and made in Japan and made one of the Top 10 popular designs.

I actually like the actual gold series (made with black gold and rose gold) but .. er... the price is too steep. Dear dont really like to wear anything on his hands, so he made it clear that he probably wouldn't be wearing the band (thus no point buy until so expensive). So.. my dream that I want to make it come true.. is just a simple wish that he will wear the ring for me. But of course, I will respect him if he's not wearing it. It's the heart that links the 2 of us together.. we gradually have some sort of connection where there are times we probably can read each others' minds.. Now.. how creepy that can be at times. Ha ha ha ha..

The house.. we got the keys.. now.. we (or he) are cracking our brains to think of a good home style design.. we roughly know what we want.. but.. not sure if it's feasible..

I would be more likely having to crack my brains over the budget part.. need to get loan from banks.. then the furniture to go with the design of the house.. ahh..

My parents kept telling me to just buy the essentials.. then slowly buy the remaining furniture.. but.. the essentials already costing us quite a fair big amount of moolah..

Anyway.. I'm creating a list of electrical appliances which.. you guys can give me for my housewarming, probably set next year..
1) Smoothie maker (for the mini bar counter)
2) Wine glasses, champange glasses, water goblets..
3) Wine, Liquor such as Vodka, Whisky, Jack daniels, Tequilla etc
4) Iron
5) Rice Cooker (enough to cook for 4 persons)
6) Water Flask (to boil and store hot water)
7) DVD Player
8) Bose speakers
9) 21 inch television (for our bedroom)
10) 42 inch television (for the living room)

Hmm.. ok.. perhaps I'm asking a bit too much liao... :P

Whichever it is..

Anyone who wish to donate to my Furniture-Appliances-Fund, please feel free to tell me hor.. :P

Still feeling damned... NERVOUS for my big day... :(

My apologies for the lack of updates (to whoever that's reading my blog... if I have any >:P )

Been busy.. and lazy (no doubt).

Busy in the sense that upon reaching home after work, I prefer to watch TV, gossip with my mum, or chase my 2 cats around.. though there are a few times i was reading other people's blogs and couldn't lift my fingers to type out my own (that's where the laziness seeps in.. )

Even going to Amore.. has been... less frequent.. imagine from like 3x classes + 1x gym reducing to like.. probably 1x gym per week?

Likely cause, work.. and of course some other personal matters (which happened to my dear but indirectly affected me). Only just yesterday that I went back to my usual Monday Hi-Lo and Stretch-Fit classes. Ok.. aching tummy.. and the sides... My fats are aching... all thanks to stretch-fit.

Supposed to go gym today, but ended up meeting dear and his buddy for dinner at Lot-One. :P

Anyway, after dinner, we went to NTUC to buy rice and salt for our new flat tomorrow.. cos....
YES! Finally... our new home is here..

My parents told me about the rituals before entering the flat etc.. so.. rather to be safe than sorry, wanting better health and WEALTH when we start living there.... I (and I force dear to go along with me) decided to listen to the folks.

Gotta wake up early tmr.. and settle all the admin stuff.. We will be around $27k poorer..
My retirement plans... I think I better start to decide when I wanna start saving for it. Doubt my investment can earn me much to live a comfortable retirement life.

I'll also be getting my security deposit back... good to add on to my incoming bonus.. which i'll be pooling them in for my furniture expenses. Anyone who's thinking of convincing me to treat them to good food because of the announcement about civil servant's bonus, you can kiss my ass before I decide whether to treat. Outsiders can never understand the misery/ scoldings/ accusations etc that we have to endure from the public, no amount of money can relieve the stress that we go through. No wonder, more and more civil servants are seeking psychiatric treatment. Serious!! I, soon will fall into that category... :X

Well.. on a lighter, more serious note, I have to do some re-financing.. considering that now got flat to support.. haiz..
Need to save for future baby (surely I wouldn't wanna wait until I 30++ yrs old then give birth).. children's education.. retirement.. so..


p/s: Any friends of mine who wants to come and witness me and moon's ROM solemnisation on 02/01/2008 2.30pm, please let me know so that I can make arrangements for some little reception after that. :)
