Cool as a Cucumber

Saturday, October 31, 2015

I had a mini heart attack experience yesterday, you guys.

So just like any other typical weekday, I woke up early in the morning and cleaned the house. I was in a good mood so I did the laundry as well. Perks of working in the p.m. session! Got ready for work after breakfast which usually takes no lesser than one hour. Hehe. Last thing I did after sashaying in front of my full length mirror & feeling satisfied with what I see, was to get my engagement ring out from the box.

But yesterday, it was not there. My heart froze for a sec.

Ran to the kitchen and then to the toilets, searched everywhere for my precious bling-bling. I was literally shouting for it okay. Thank God I was alone at home, or else my mom would have used her favorite line on me. You see, my brother and I, we're always losing/forgetting our stuff and each time mom finds out she'd go...

"Ah Korang memang! Nasib baik * korang lekat kat badan kalau tak hilang jugak!!"

She'd say that standard line ala Bonda Bedah with hands on the hips like that lol

Okay back to the story!

Seriously, the thought of losing my ring made my blood run cold. *cries* What should I do? Should I tell the kareshi? What if he gets mad at me? Omg the thought of that is 100x scarier than losing the ring *shivers*

Grabbed my phone and texted him anyway. Added a few crying emojis to gain sympathy haha

I was frantically looking at every corner of the living room when I heard a message notification from kareshi. (I have a special ringtone set for his messages. In fact I have different ringtones for messages from different groups of people. hehe) I had to calm myself  down for a few secs before gathering my guts to check his reply.

Honestly I was expecting red angry emojis but the only ones I saw was the smiley with tear on its forehead. T_T

To cut the long story short, after a good thirty minutes search which resulted in cold sweats and teary eyes, I found it!! Right at the back of its box. -_- Cracked my brain so hard trying to remember the last time I saw it, messed up my eyeliner and mascara all for nothing! Bet my ring would be laughing at me if it could. It must have enjoyed the morning drama huh.

Broke the news to the kareshi and still, cool as before. Even added a smiley emoji with sunglasses.

"Kalau betul2 hilang, how?" I asked.

"It's okay if you lose the ring, at least you don't lose me. I love you baby!" - what I expect him to answer me.

What he actually answered me - "Beli baru *smiley with teeth*"


So there you have it, story of Miss kancheong spider & Mr cool cucumber. Living proof that opposite attracts, no?


Cats' Safari

Thursday, October 29, 2015

 I heard about a newly opened cat therapy centre so obviously it is a major sin for a crazy cat lady like me not to give it a visit! Dragged my partner in crime Tina who is just as crazy about cats as me. 

Prince Charming

Wednesday, October 21, 2015

This date, at about the same time last year, kareshi asked me the question. & quite obviously, I said yes!

A picture that was taken on that day - the 4kg skinnier me and the shycat him hehe. Can't believe it has been a year! It's even harder to believe all the things that happened within the past 365 days, getting our house got to be at the top of the list! 

The Girlfriends

Matching colours with kareshi's girlfriend #2, or what he prefers to call it, his wife.

*roll eyes*


Children's Day

Friday, October 9, 2015

So we celebrated Children's Day yesterday. There's a concert followed by a sports carnival which turned the entire school into a playground. It was so noisy trust me I can't even hear myself think. Kids everywhere were yelling, squealing, running, laughing some, even crying. Gosh. My poor eardrums. I just can't stand loud, rowdy kids la! The whole day yesterday made me hate kids more than I already do. Sorry future mini-me(s) lol

Anyways, as always every level teachers were expected to come up with a performance for the concert. Dancing, acting, basically anything just to make a fool of ourselves in front of the kids. So what my level teachers did was we came up with a music video, edited by yours truly! I wish I can post it here but I guess due to privacy issue I shall not.

I am, however, gonna share something interesting that I recently found that made me cringed SO HARD my face turned inside out hahaha

Best weekend ever!

Saturday, October 3, 2015

Kareshi and I, we never had a chance to spend our weekends together no thanks to his photography assignments. However last week we managed to make use of Friday + the whole weekends, together :D It's our first time so of course such happy (and rare) things must be shared on this blog hahaha

Wedding Cake - Check!

Friday, October 2, 2015

Finally an update on the big day!

Wedding cake is not something I'm really particular about. Once I even told kareshi that perhaps we can use a dummy wedding cake instead of a real one. Faux and fabulous ya'll! (and cost-effective too!). Or we can get a macaron tower instead. Obviously my boo rolled his eyes at my former suggestion & agreed to the latter.

& since then we had only one vendor in mind. The same one who set up my cousin's wedding cake, or should I say, wedding macaron tower. So I dropped a PM to this cousin of mine and she kindly helped to check out with the vendor. One of the duo running the business happens to be her sister-in-law.

At the very same time, I received a random message from kareshi asking if we should get in touch with the vendor. Told him that I already did and am waiting for their email and that maybe he should just directly ask the other half of the duo, whom he knows anw. And so he did.

Funny thing is, later the person told kareshi that she can only revert by the next morning cos there's another customer on the same date but have yet to confirm time and location. It didn't occur to me that 'the other customer' is me. LOL.

Anywayssssss, everything got cleared up the next day so wedding cake -Booked!!

Okay now for some works done by this awesome duo. 

Guess whose wedding?!
