My first time at a bridal fair.

Just last weekend, I went to a bridal fair for the first time ever! The reason was two-fold:

1) to 'window-shop' for bridal-related stuff since I have not actually done that before! Most of my wedding research was actually done online. I guess part of me is worried that I might be missing out on some good deal or awesome vendor by relying solely on the internet. Also, we will be doing our wedding dinner next year (this year is wedding ceremony and lunch), so there is definitely no harm to see what is out there!

2) to drop by and support Audrey who would be catwalking as a bride! :D

Reliving my bridesmaid days for her, hahaha.

Throwback to the past when I was a REAL bridesmaid for her lol.

Initially the fiance was supposed to accompany me, but he had some work to catch up, so I just went head alone. Which turned out to be THE BEST DECISION EVER!!

'Cause the people at the bridal fair are so aggressive! :O Imagine that I was there without a partner, and I literally had people jumping in front of me, and asked me, "MISS! DO YOU WANT TO GET MARRIED?" (imagine it in Chinese, and it sounds even more ludicrous wtf). I think if I went with the fiance, the staff will literally tie us to their booths wtf.

And there were a lot of so-called promotions going on, and add on the pushy salespeople, I honestly think that an engaged couple will easily be coaxed into going for a package that may not be that suitable for them.

That's why I still think doing your wedding research online is still the best! Then you have all the time in the world to go through real reviews and vendor portfolios-- which I think is so important. One way to start is by going to a wedding blog or wedding site, for example, is really helpful as it can be searched via colors, categories, themes, and even local vendors! I think it's especially important to really go through all the local photographers, as photography ca really make or break a wedding in my opinion.

Do you girls have any other wedding websites or wedding blogs that you recommend? :) I love to idle away my time on wedding sites, haha.


By the way, if you follow my Dayre, you will know that I was in Bangok over the weekend with Audrey and Bobo!

Actually, the correct title of this blogpost should be Dayre-outfits LOL.

Was going through my phone, and realized that I have a lot of #OOTDs that I posted on my Dayre, but not on my blog! Mostly 'cause they are not the proper high-quality images that I usually try to maintain on the blog. Heck, most of these pictures don't even make it to Instagram!

But I thought it'd be nice to share some of them, and the back-story of the outfits (I always remember my days by my outfits WTF). So let's go!

This was on the boy's birthday just a few days ago! I booked a staycation for him at Sekeping Tenggiri, and this was my lazy outfit. Since it was a cheerful occasion (but a gloomy day due to the rain), I wore my trusty tropical print shirt! :D

Movie date outfit! It was a special date 'cause for the first time since forever, the boy accompanied me to watch a chick flick, hehe.

He woke up earlier than me in the morning and was super engrossed with his phone. Turns out he was actually booking tickets for a romance comedy (A Case of You)! So he not only watched a chick flick with me, he willingly surrendered himself to do so, haha.

Actually I have something to confess. When the boy told me he booked tickets for 'A Case of You", I was grumbling 'cause the real chick flick that I wanted to watch is "The Other Woman"!

On Wesak Day, the boy surprised me with tickets for "The Other Woman". :D

Pardon the messy hair in this photo, 'cause it was taken after the movie, heh.

Met up with Kim, who did my blog layout.The last time I chatted with her, she was in a LDR with her hubby and she was yearning to go to Singapore to be reunited with him. Now, she has found a job in SG and is happily settled down. I LOVE happy endings! :D And I can completely understand her initial woes, 'cause it really sucks to be in a LDR, especially when you are married!

Jibby & Co.

When Jing was back, I had trouble thinking of nice eateries to bring her to. Granted, there are a lot of hipster cafes sprouting up in KL, but I find that most of them don't have the full package. More often than not, the cafe will hit the right notes in terms of deco and interior, but miss the mark when it comes to food. And I am a foodie through and through, so it is of utmost importance!

One day I came across this cafe called Jibby & Co.... Actually someone was bashing this cafe on FB, hahaha. Apparently the service is very slow and staff is obnoxious. However, I have also read reviews saying that the ambiance is great (very reminiscent of Melbourne cafes), and food is good. So although the location is really far (it's in Empire Subang), I decided to bring Jing there-- during non-peak hours, of course.

When I reached the place, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Jibby & Co. is not a restaurant INSIDE the mall, but instead, they built a glass house outside! I love air-conditioning as much as the next person, but let's face it, cafes in a mall somehow loses its charm!

The entrance of the cafe. Jing made me promise that the restaurant is not opened by Najib wtf.

Bright-lipped selfie! Sometimes I find it hard to believe that a lot of people think we look alike, 'cause from this photo, we look as different as night and day! :O

 photo DSC02445_zpsaecea3ab.jpg
Love the airy and open concept.

The menu looks really promising too! Everything sounds innovative and delicious, and we had a hard time deciding what to order.

In the end, Jing went for a fancy-sounding American breakfast. Actually, I think the dish had her at "cheese sauce", haha.

Whereas I had the soft shell crab burger, which was utterly delicious!

Neon lights asking me to eat cake? Yes please.
