jun, june, juni.

So what’s up y’all?

Late last month, I was diagnosed with Hidradenitis Suppurativa. Yup, come on, say it with me: hi-drad-uh-NIE-tis sup-yoo-ruh-TIE-vuh.

So I was hospitalised. It all happened really fast. Initially I thought it was just a pimple at my underarm but when it grew as big as a marble, I immediately knew it wasn’t just a pimple. Headed to the polyclinic on a Saturday, was referred to Jurong Medical Centre and then further referred to Alexandra Hospital, where they admitted me and scheduled me for an operation on the very same day. By then, the lump at my underarm was already as big as a pingpong ball.

Now, three weeks later, I am still recuperating, still going for dressing change twice a week and am currently dying of not being able to have any seafood. But hey, better now than going through it later in the year when we’re busy with the wedding.

Moving on to happier news, we have already booked our wedding venue! We can finally breathe a huge sigh of relief because that meant that we can now proceed in ordering our wedding invitations. However, that also meant that….

WE ARE SIX MONTHS AWAY FROM OUR BIG DAY!

I really am glad that we had secured most of the major bookings such as bridal, decor, photography, videography and photobooth in June last year because that enabled us to focus only on the smaller and important details such as venue (this one no choice la since we can only book six months before wedding, heh) and wedding favours. And may I add that we have ordered our wedding favours too!

That, I will save for another entry 🙂

After reading Another Accidental Bride’s post on Gardenasia, I decided to go ahead in enquiring on their services and rates. Prior to my wedding planning, I had stumbled upon the venue in pictures and I loved it! The place was breathtakingly beautiful and it looked really exquisite.

Both are really apt for Malay weddings of 500pax and above. I must say that Gardenasia was really prompt in replying to my enquiries and they provided quite an extensive explanation.

So I immediately pitched the idea to my dear Mum because after all, her opinions matter the most. She saw the quotations, looked at me and said…..

“Abih nanti yang tua-tua datang macam mana? It’s at Kranji tau, Kakak! Please think properly.”

My heart broke a little after hearing that so I decided to approach Dad instead. What did he say?

“Go ask Mama.”

I lost the battle already la. But come to think of it, the other half doesn’t even know about my secret obsession for Bluesky. So by right, this wasn’t a battle worth fighting for from the start. Chet.

Never mind, this venue might be for you BTBs out there should you love beautiful garden weddings and Kranji isn’t out of the way for you. If you need more information, email me 🙂

My other half texted me while I was at work and was proud to announce how hardworking he was to make a trip down to Woodlands CC in an effort to enquire about the rental rates.

Make a trip down, as in literally down because he lives at the block next to the CC -.-

When we first started our wedding planning, both of us came to a consensus that it would be good to have a combined wedding as he has a small family and he feels that he is much closer to my close-knit family than his own.

Initially Woodlands CC sounded like a great idea but after a friend told me a few weeks back that rental for Woodlands CC was a whooping $3300, I became hesitant.

I digress! Back to the texting part.

Being the mind-reader that he was, my other half instantly knew I was half-hearted about having our wedding at the abovementioned CC. To make me feel better, he said,

“Okay, okay, cinta. Since you rasa it’s agak mahal, why not we have it at Hog Park? It’s cheaper kan?”

HOG PARK? Why are you so kelakar seram? A beautiful place called Hort Park suddenly became a park full of hogs?

Heh. Anyway, if you are interested to have your wedding at Hort Park, click here for their latest rates and list of appointed caterers. Below are some pictures of weddings that were held there.
