Happy New year 2018!

I was asked if this blog is dead. Well, I think it is not. But I admit that I share my dailies and reflections with my fiance now. Hehe. Oh yes, I'm engaged :). And I am fully aware that I'm skipping several crucial stories here but lets just proceed and I'll fill in the blanks sometime down the line.

And thank you for checking in. At least it reminded me that I need to be back here, to my space where I keep my stories. Hehe. Basically, I'm an open book. And this blog is my self expression. So I am back! Hopefully with a better track record than ever before (finger crossed!).

So let's start with a recent one, my engagement :)






I got engaged to my perfect man on 23 December 2017. It was a simple event just like how I envisioned it to be. All things blue, white and pastel-y. Alhamdulillah everything went well. And the feeling is slowly sinking in. Now whenever I mention the word fiance or tunang, I get all excited just at the thought of saying it. Hehe.

So how I met him? Well, everyone's got a story, how they met their significant other. How I Met Your Mother, in essentials. Hehe. Some stories are much longer than the others, and for some, the first page starts on their wedding day.

OUR story? Hmmm, I met him through Baitul Muslim 6 months ago, so go figure! Hehe. But I'll promise I'll dive into some of the deets later.


MUA




Couldn't have been blessed more with the MUA that I got on my engagement day. Hana a.k.a @makeupbyhananoordin was simply tip top. I requested for a simple make up, nothing so bold and loud, hence that what I've got :) She was a blessing to work with.


THE DECOR 






I wanted a white theme for my engagement and I trusted my mother wholeheartedly and left it all out to her on the canopies. Didn't even intervene much, just simply told her the color I wanted. And she gave me Chiavari chairs, which I love. Hehe. Thanks mok, love you :).

And for the pelamin, I know it looks soooo nikah-y. Haha. Thanks @zylynngallery team. They try their very best to achieve the look that I desire by following a sample photo I provided. Overall, it fitted my theme. It would be nice if they can use fresh flowers but then again, I have no budget for that. Hehe.


THE ENGAGEMENT DRESS





My engagement dress was specially customised by Davis Paul Lister @dplkl. While doing my research, I had in mind @nahanaha & @sammrepublic! But what made me chose Davis over them was the location. Hehe. Because Davis is located at Bangsar, near my office while both NahaNaha and Samm at Ampang, KL. I couldn’t be bothered to travel for my engagement dress. Not to mention that all of them have equally beautiful designs too. And the fact that NahaNaha used to work with Mimpikita before, he was simply my first choice. But in the end, I opted for convenience, the nearer the better. Hehe. And I love my bajuuuu, the blue beads, yummm, thanks Davis, you are awesome!


THE DULANGS & HANDBOUQUET





Both my dulangs  and handbouquet were done by @zylynngallery as well. I wanted fresh flowers for my dulang but I think probably I shouldn't ask for hydrangeas, so really difficult to jaga. And you can see that we are foregoing all unnecessary stuff and giving each other practical items instead? Hehe.








From his side, it was DIY-ed by my future SIL. I know it wasn't easy having to assemble all items within 48 hours and thank you for making those dulangs soo beautiful :)


THE DOORGIFT



The gift was from Amy Cookies, Klang based. Hehe. Sooo cheap and good and delish. Loveee the chocolate and chip cookies. Thanks mommy for suggesting. And I just customised the jar tag to our names and the date of our engagement. Easy peasy.
