M&S Bridal Staycation

Salam ladies! Wow, I haven’t been on WordPress for soooo long! So many things have happened but they are not related to the wedding at all. Wedding preparations have been pretty stagnant – undoubtedly so. At the moment, we are a couple of days shy from the two years mark and it’s pretty exciting! Z has also been more involved in his vendor search. It’s nice to see him being more involved with the wedding. Hehe.

Anyway, two of my girlfriends are getting married soon so the girls and I planned a surprise staycation for them.  We booked a room at Marina Mandarin and we were greeted with one of the best views in Singapore.

Here’s our view from the highest floor of Marina Mandarin, with some Fluff Bandung cupcakes to boot!


The bed was pretty comfy too!


I have started drinking coffee (and relying on it!!!) since I started going out with Z, so this was indeed nice to have!


We decorated the room just for M & S!


My favourite girls, missing a few others who came later / could not make it.

These girls are indeed very special to me. We met in NUS and most of us went for the orientation camp organized by NUS Muslim Society and PBMUKS when we were 19 (that was in 2019!!!). We grew close and we call each other the “Fillah Girls” because we aim to grow closer to each other and be better individuals for the sake of Allah. It’s really surreal to see us grow up and entering the next phase in life. I’m really happy for M & S, mashaAllah. They really deserve all the happiness in the world!

Really glad that the bridal party was a success! We definitely had fun stuffing ourselves with food and talking and eating and laughing and all that jazz. It’s hard to meet often now that we are working, so when you put 9 of us  girls (missing 1 of us who was working) in a room together, it can get really kecoh!!

Can’t wait for the wedding in December and January! Hehe. Also, Z and I attended a wedding of a dear friend whom I met in JC and did a few school attachment with together on Saturday. Congrats Nadya & Aman! Really happy for you! Also, I fell heads over heels with the decor!


Look at that pelamin! No prizes for guessing who’s the Decor Vendor!

When I told Z that I got the same vendor for decor, I think the simple guy in him was shocked beyond words. Hehe. Can’t wait to see how mine will materialize when it’s finally our time! InshaAllah all will go well!

Now, it’s time for me to relax a little bit more than usual because it’s the holidays, guys! Hehe.

Here’s to more wedding weekends before I fly off! Till then!

Love, A

Here’s a Quick One!

Hello, hello, hello! Hehe. I’ve been so caught up with packing my things at work (my school’s shifting) and attending weddings that I haven’t found the time to blog! I’ll make this a quick one with some updates.

  1. Decor booked! So who did I choose in the end? Make a guess! I’ll update on the decor in the next few entries, InshaAllah! (Clues: drapes and fresh flowers!)
  2. Photobooth booked! I know it’s a tad too early to be booking my photobooth vendor but I figured I wanted everything settled as early as possible to secure the good prices and my date. Anyways, my wedding, my way right? Hehe. (I was quite selective about this (what’s new?) because I wanted photostrips and a real booth-y feeling. Thank god I wasn’t crazy enough to be spending more than a thousand dollars on a photobooth even though the bookmark photostrips are gojesss.)
  3. Thinking of doing a DIY series on this blog since a really good friend of mine and I will be embarking on some sort of a DIY adventure for her upcoming wedding in 2016 InshaAllah. We talked about it briefly and we thought of DIY wedding shoes, money boxes, bridal rooms, gubahan trays, decor and whathaveyous. In fact, she was 1/3 of my Craftfairies for my engagement in September. She’s so crafty! Me, not so much. But I’ve got loads of fancy ideas! Hehe. Tell me what you girls think on this ya!
  4. I’ve finally designed the  invitation cards for my best friend from secondary school. She will be having a simple Solemnization ceremony soon and she (together with her fiancé) helped to take beautiful photos during The A to Z Engagement so I thought I wanted to do something nice for them. Will be posting photos of the designs InshaAllah and with that said, yes friends, you can start booking me to design your wedding cards! Hehe!
  5. I’m so unhappy with the service and treatment I got from Tampines Printing. Omg rude staff they have! To be honest, I don’t mind that they are a bit on the pricey end of the printing spectrum but for last minute printing jobs (and usually of quality from past experiences) I would always recommend my friends to print stuff here. And I’ve always had good experience with the staff until today. You DO NOT ask someone to change her design to fit your printing criteria. What sort of logic is that? Also, yes I know you guys print in 100s. But I’m sure you can print an extra 5 copies at an additional cost right??? Even if you can’t, there’s no reason to be acting so rude and sassy. Didn’t even bother saying thank you after paying because I was fuming mad. Astaghfirullah. I’m trying to tell myself it’s just a one off event that will not happen again. 

Okay that’s all for now! Gotta sleep in because it’s gonna be another day of packing like siao tomorrow!

Love, A.
