The bridesmaids trip and the sambel ijo.


Sorry it’s been too long since I made a proper post. This one, too, is not a proper post. It’s another rambling made on the train home, using my oh-so-smart phone.

I went to Bandung and Jakarta on the Chinese new year holiday and yes I pigged out like craaaaazy and I went back to Singapore SICK! Yes, apparently eating too much gorengan and sambel ijo can make you sick. Was having fever alone by myself because nobody was home yet! T.T

The next morning after that indomie and gorengan fiesta everyone were having sore throat and fire on their asses. We stayed together in one hotel room and everyone were fighting for bathroom. LOL.

Anyway, now I’m so busy juggling my mind between work and wedding planning. I have finally finished doing all the stationary for the wedding and hopefully it will go printing soon. Yes, as a certified OCD freak, I have to design all the stationary myself, and the decorations, and the table setting, and the canvas design.

I don’t complain though. The reason why I decided to make a DIY wedding is because I looove doing DIY! :) On the other hand, the D-Day planning is quite rough. I was so stressing out I might shout at my bridesmaids once or twice. Oh well I must be the most irritating bride ever. But in my defense, I was shocked by how expensive renting tiffany chairs can be. Arrghhh!

Road trip to Bandung. It was supposed to be bridesmaids only but well, I have awesome friends who are so helpful. =)

All vendors are checked but both wedding bands: the musical wedding band and the put-on-the-finger-ring-wedding band.

Uh oh, why am I ramblings about wedding? I just can’t help it. I feel like I’m constantly thinking about it, just like the time when I was in college and I was the chief head of an event. I was also stressing out. I cried once in front of the rest of the committee. What a day.

To be honest, I have already had my wedding meltdown. One afternoon when Bandi and I were brainstorming our guestlist, I suddenly cried and I told him I was stressing out because I have this bad habit to micro-manage everything even though I know it’s wrong. And Bandi was just being his usual sweet kind adorable self, telling me everything will be fine. And yes, I bought it. =)

I’ve spent the last three days editing my wedding video. Yes. I even created and edited my own videos! Freak! But I love doing it. =) I’m so gonna show it off later! It’s soooo cute it made me cry a couple of times when I watched it. It wasn’t a video actually. It was a compilation of thousands of our photos since the very beginning of our relationship. It was a love story. A real one. Ahhh! I can’t wait to show it off!

Ok ok, now let’s not talk about wedding anymore. Lately I’ve been drinking juice in a daily basis and it really makes me feel so much better! I usually drink apple-beetroot-carrot-celery juice but sometimes I mixed with cucumber, mint leaves. I also make smoothies from banana and berries sometimes. It’s been two month since I started drinking juice daily and I don’t get tired easily anymore. I also feel like having more energy than I was before. Well, I guess this is a good habit that I must keep.

Anyway, what’s your plan for the Valentine’s weekend?

Bandi and I will go for a 3 days 2 nights retreat for a catholic marriage preparation course. And I was asking him “will we sleep together?” and he was laughing like crazy, “this is a catholic activity, dear. TELL ME ABOUT IT!” Hahahaha! Duh! I thought since it’s in Singapore they would let the bride and groom to be to sleep in one room. LOL.

But I will prefer this over any romantic Valentine’s getaway. :) I know it’s important for him so this is important for me too. :)

So that’s it for now. I’m hoping to read so many lovey-dovey posts on my wordpress timeline this coming weekend! Don’t forget to tag me if you’re writing a love story! =)

Cheers,

May, exciting for the weekend!

    whoaa…pas valentine yaa…daku ama suami malah g punya ngrencanain apa2…hemmm, bikin dinner romantic lucu juga…

  4. Wedding is top level sport obviously. I guess everybody should sympathize with the bride to be ;-). Though actually I think some photos indicate it’s sheer fun. And trying out the wine isn’t too bad. So, I wonder… either in my humble opinion :) .

    Oh as for February 14th .. it will be as much a day of love as the other 364 days are.

    Lucu banget deh May… kayaknya sih kalo di Indo ga mungkin bisa, tapi kali aja di Singapore bisa ya? hihihi…
    Trus salut deh sama DIY wedding-nya. Pengen banget dulu bisa begitu tapi sayangnya yah… namanya keluarga banyak jadinya banyak yang campur tangan… Jadi ga sabar nih mau liat videonya…!
    Tetap semangat yaaaa…jangan freak out! hihihi…

  7. Gwe juga gak ngerti kenapa sich tiffany chair itu mahal banget, damn you tifanny chair…. Hehehehehe. I was having the same dillema with the tifanny chair on my wedding day. Don’t worry, mau ada atau gak ada tifanny chair, the thing that you will remember the most on that day will be the person who vow to be with you forever and the people closest to you celebrating your special day.

    Enjoy and have fun planning the wedding

  8. seru juga semuanya di kerjain sendiri, apalagi video.. Sambil bikin video sambil keinget kenangan” dulu, gmn gak ngucurr aer matanya hihihi…

    Semoga semuanya lancar” yah ci May sampai hari H ^^,

    ngomong” Valz day, belum ada ide mau ngapain, ngasih apa aaaa… >,<

  9. May dulu gue juga gini lho maunya semua2 dikerjain sendiri ujung2nya stress sendiri hahaha tapi DIY wedding kalo emang niat pasti hasilnya memuaskan banget deh.. Semoga semua2nya lancar yah sampai hari H :))))

    Salute deh sama calon manten satu ini, DIY nya total yah May.. Tapi jgn sampe stress2 lah.. Tar nambah keriput lhooo.. hihihi.. Tapi akuh yakin sekali hasilnya pasti bakal keren, kan semuanya pake hati yang penuh lopee lopee ya kann.. Ahh.. Pengen lihat videonya dehh awww..

    Iya bagus tuh minum jus tiap hari, jadi dirimu juga lebih seger, May ^^,

  13. Wahahhahaha…. kalo tipe wedding kayak gue DIY, bisa2 pingsan, bangun bentar… trus pingsan lagi…. Hihihihi… Enak juga ya having a wedding that is not too huge. Elu hebat banget deh bisa siap2in semuanya sendiri, padahal elu kan jauh dari Bandung. Senengnya punya best friends yang bisa diandelin.

    Ya udah, gak usah pake tiffany chair, pake kursi panjang kayu (bench) gitu juga keren kan? Rustic! Apalagi kalo venuenya banyak unsur outdoor2nya, pasti caem deh. Dan I can see yellow all over the place as the wedding color theme :)

    • Hahahaha!Actually wedding ini bukan wedding yang sebenarnya yang dimauin parents lah le. Lo taulah parents indo kan mawnya ngundang semua orang sekampung. Tapi gue emang request dari awal, kalo emang gue dan Bandi maw kawin, pas hari pemberkatan gereja nya kita mau minta 1 hari untuk bikin dinner utk close friends dan dia approve. Gituu. =)

  14. mayy.. jiayoo yahh!!! hehehe..
    gw doakan biar lu bisa membagi waktu dngn baik, agar wedding lu bs berjalan dngn lancarr.. ehhehe..
    anywayy.. talking about gereja punya pre-wedding classes..
    gw dnger2 ada bbrp greja bisa bikin bbrp couple ga jadi married gt. hauahuaa..
    they makes the couple think twice and more gt..
    agak horror..
    tapi ada bagusnya juga sii.. at least kalo couple yg buru2 mau married gt, jd mikir lagi if they meant for each other apa nggak. hoho..

  15. May, waktu ngurusin nikahan kemarin aku jg sempet stres sendiri karna apa2 maunya ngurus sendiri jg. Hahaha tapi seru banget ya, apalagi bayangin hasilnya ntar pas hari H. Good luck yaa May, jangan lupa posting videonyaa mau liatt :)
