i don't do these very often. but with all the chaos that's been happening lately leading up to the melbourne trip and with the wedding dramas (not to mention getting raped with school assessments). i thought i'd do a DMT (deep meaningful talk) post.

one of the worst things in life. is knowing what's wrong with yourself, but not knowing how to fix it. i know what i am and what i'm not.. and impossibly difficult is one of my traits that i wish i could eliminate. (what do you mean by difficult?)
every now and then i randomly get into one of my puddles and i just get into a funk mood where i worry and remember all the bad things that has happened in my life. i remember all the hurt that i've felt and all the things that upset me. and let them pretty much run wild. and whenever i get into these puddles... i tend to bring up bad things that happened in the past before le boy and i got together. there's only 2 things that i hold most dear to me that has multiple times over almost torn us apart. sometimes i wonder if he might get fed up one day and feel.. regret for having picked me. but by some.. fate. each and every time as much as i try to push him away.. he's stood by me and not once let go of me. he almost never knows the right thing to say initially to avoid the mental breakdown.. (men.. ==") but has somehow never stopped loving me and wants to grow old with me.
once the distance between us is eliminated and we can finally start our lives together... i hope it can only get better from here.

because of the drama that happened before he and i got together.. some of my friends weren't exactly.. ecstatic when i first broke the news of marriage to them.. because of their past experiences.. it's caused them to feel jaded and cautious. but they're very excited for me and have been nothing but supportive and helpful in every way possible now that they know he's committed and that this is what i want. and for that i am forever grateful. people are people.. all you can do is to be who you are. however you are. and the people who matter won't mind. and those who mind. don't matter.

le stress

mental breakdown. all sorts of chaos.

been at war with the bridal party.. i don't know. it's difficult to get a couple girls to agree on something, i don't know how i thought i'd be able to get 6 of them together.

turkish delight

had lunch at Sahara today with the other half. it was absolutely delicious. he had the lamb cutlets, with buttered mash potatoes and a selection of roasted vegetables. i had the mediterranean salad with lamb.

AND they do functions too! ;)

on the way to the mall we walked past a bridal store called Luv Bridal and Formal wear. i asked him if he felt like dress shopping for fun (most people depending on their beliefs and superstitions think that it's bad luck for the groom to see the bride in the wedding dress before the day, i don't believe per se, but i don't want to risk it either), but we went up to the store anyways and a lovely lady by the name of Heidi came up to ask me if i needed any help etc. i told her i was looking for a wedding dress, and although i ordered one online, i wasn't sure of what it was like because i hadn't received it yet and was worried that if it was a fail, that i could get another one in case. she was absolutely amazing, extremely friendly and so helpful. she told me to roam around and get a feel of what dresses i liked and that i could go try them on, and she had picked out a couple too. (hahaha mister jonno was surprisingly very enthusiastic and willing to participate with the whole ridiculousness. loves him)

i tried on, an A-line dress, mermaid, column and princess dress just for kicks.

mermaid: too hard to walk in

column: no shape

princess: way too overbearing (think of Cinderella's step sisters going to the ball, and their butts bounced as they walked.. except in white)

strapless A-line chiffon dress *winner winner chicken dinner* it was almost exactly like the dress i had bought online except, chiffon which was perfect for the beach ceremony and it was reasonably priced too!!!

but of course.. knowing my luck.. they didn't have my size available and that i had to order it, which would take about 6 months to arrive. which if you think about it would come just on time, except for the fact that i'll be in perth come november and won't be able to pick it up etc. so.. i'm back to winging it with my dress i bought online.

surprise visit! :D

went to my first workshop since the semester started and just after class i get an update on my phone on facebook saying, "Jonathan Liew
Surprising the missus! — with Sylvie Theresa Lam at Sydney Domestic Airport Terminal 3."

of course i scrambled to find my contact list and call him asking him wtf was going on and low and behold.. he was waiting for me at QVB ♥

lunch at Jamie's Italian

fettuccine in a truffle butter sauce. crispy polenta chips with parmesan and rosemary. steak fillet with watercrest and grilled mushrooms

something borrowed

went cake tasting with my favorites today. sipping on tea tasting delicious cakes. starting to see why girls plan their special day years in advance.

also known as party favours. just a small something for the guests that come to your wedding. kind of thanking them for taking the time to attend your wedding.

question is.. where to start.. the list is endless and there are hundreds of possibilities of gifts.

i saw these browsing through one of the many wedding blogs i've been religiously reading when i probably should be doing my assessments due before leaving for melbourne. (he better ask me during this trip. or i'll probably lose my shit) and they seemed like an ingenious idea.

maybe have personalized messages on them?
