That has to be some kind of personal record. -_- Not that it is anything to be proud of wtf.
I have been still micro-blogging all these while though-- am quite active on Dayre! So you guys can catch all my shenanigans in the past months there. *weak laugh* I think the thing I struggle with the most is separating content between my blog and Dayre. Often, I find myself blogging on-the-go on Dayre, and by the time I want to blog-- I feel like I have nothing else to say FML.
But a recent incident kind of opened my eyes. I wanted to search for something from a few years back-- and literally by typing a few keywords, I can retrieve what I want from my past blogposts easily. T_T Whether it is by going through my blog archives or via Google, all my memories and albums are neatly categorized, easily accessed by me whenever, wherever. On the other hand, whilst Dayre is incredibly convenient to blog on-the-go, it is still not a platform that purely belongs to me. Call this a wake-up call, but it reminded me that my blog is still my baby, and it will be meaningful to nurture it-- even if it is just for the sake of my own memories. :)
Soooo.. in the meantime, I have kind of came up with a "strategy", if you can call it that. I am going to keep searchable content (travel tips/ travelogue, milestones, reviews etc.) and detailed outfit posts on the blog, whereas my Dayre will be more for daily updates-- as I assume you guys won't feel inclined to search for what I had for lunch last Wednesday lol.
Okay? Let's gooooo.
To start with, let me start with a recap for the past 10 months WTF.
October 2015 (this was when I last blogged huhu)
Bobo's birthday dinner! This is an important event because:
1) It was the beginning of a blossoming friendship between Audrey, Bobo, Careen, Weizhi, and I.
2) It started a tradition of us throwing a not-so-surprise birthday party for each girl. :)
3) It was also from here that I started to dabble in styling/ decorating parties, and developed a love for it!
Very quickly, the five of us became very close, and it was sometime this month that we named ourselves #competitiveaunties.
Went to Chiangmai with my family!
Also celebrated my grandparents' 60th wedding anniversary, truly #relationshipgoals. :)
Threw a surprise birthday high-tea for my mom. As you can see, I was slowly getting addicted with styling parties haha.
This was also a month filled with weddings-- I LOVE WEDDINGS!
Took business class for the first time in my life! Well, actually I have taken it once before when I was a kid (sponsored by my dad's medical conference), but that doesn't count 'cause it was just a 45-minute interstate flight LOL.
Went to Guangzhou to do some wedding-shopping 'cause my parents insisted that there are loads of wedding stuff to buy there! Which reminds me, I want to do a post on the famous Wedding Street in Guangzhou. :)
Wedding-planning officially started! We did our ROM back in 2014 (click here to read a sneak peek post), but the wedding receptions (both a Western and Chinese one) were to take place in mid-May 2016.
Went to Guangzhou AGAIN haha. Just to wrap up some wedding shopping, and it was during this trip that I accidentally found my dream gown. :O Which I bought of course, haha.
Also went to Bangkok with the hubby (who was there for a business trip), just a short trip only!
My #competitiveaunties threw me the most awesome hen's getaway ever. T____T
We got married!! :D :D :D
Definitely will do a proper blogpost on all the wedding celebrations-- let me know specifically what you all want to read about!
We also went on a faux honeymoon the Barcelona and Madrid! Faux 'cause-- my family decided to tag along FOL hahahaha. But oh well, we will plan for another REAL honeymoon soon then nyehehe.
Definitely one for the books-- hubby and I went for a Coldplay concert in Barcelona itself! This was sooo awesome. Can I blog about this? Will anyone be interested? Haha.
June was definitely a winding-down month from all the excitement of our wedding and fantastic honeymoon. We still managed to squeeze in a post-wedding shoot with Rocky though! :D
And here we are, in the month of July!
Obviously the above is a super succinct summary of the past few months, but the general highlights are there LOL.
Ending this entry with an outfit post...
Sheer back scallop-lace romper: AZORIAS
Nude gladiators: Zara
Bag: Miu Miu
See you in my next blogpost! :D
