Sorry I know it's old news, but thank you all again for the kind comments and for reading my LONG post! I don't know how @fourfeetnine and @fightertiah handle the many likes and comments, I was super shocked!
Die die still want to bask in the attention and glory hahaha once in my lifetime ma
Anyway here's my attempt to be healthy last night. Salad with dragon fruit, feta cheese, cranberries with olive oil and balsamic vinegar dressing. I wasn't quite sure how it'll taste but
It was super good!!!
Got hungry after 30 mins so went to eat normal dinner after. Failed diet 😒
I have one year to lose weight before my wedding!
Actually don't know if it's one year la, we haven't thought much about the wedding yet. Too much to deal with in such a short time span hahah. Do people think about it immediately??
Yesterday we attempted to discuss about the wedding and gave up cos there are too many considerations 😰
1. Ceremony in the temple
So I've never been to an Indian wedding before (he hasn't been to one in a really long time too so we don't actually have any clue about this).
All I know is there's fire and we have to walk around it 7 times to signify our love for each other and how it'll last for 7 eternities.
DAMN COOL AH!!
So this is a must just for the cool factor. I know there are other stuff like reading mantras, priest, tying strings etc
2. Tea ceremony
This is the Chinese "jip sam leong" (pick bride), the hengtai games and the tea ceremony.
Honestly I really don't want to do this. I dunno why but I think it takes too much time and I personally don't like the games in the morning. Too much work and looks stressful hahah
Apparently Karthik said my mom said must do this, so since he agreed to it just so he can propose to me, so I guess we have to do it 😩
3. Walking down the aisle
This is not a must since it's more western, but I like it! Can walk down aisle and see people weeping in joy, can read vows and weep somemore, can kiss under the beautiful arch wrapped with flowers, can have our fav songs playing etc
4. Wedding dinner
This is the only thing I actually care about actually. A dinner with our loved ones to celebrate the moment.
We both want it to be small (<150 people) but we did a preliminary headcount and it's way more than that already. This is if we limit the number of relatives somemore but he said with Indian weddings........you can't really do that......you invite one person they'll bring EVERYONE they know. stress!
And I said no to chinese dinners. So how?
So this is why we gave up and said we'll revisit this again at another time.
Oh and need to find a suitable date according to BOTH chinese and Indian calendars! And check with the venue see got availability or not!
Wahhh now writing it all out I also feel so panicky. Lucky I'm waiting for my passport so it's not like I'm doing anything haha
#weddingplanning #ornot #maybenever
How was your wedding planning like?
Cooked homecooked dinner at home!
Hahaha who am I kidding, siao ah so many dishes. It's at this nearby restaurant that serves "homecooked" dishes. Ah ma, I shall never take your food for granted again 😭 now I crave for ah ma's food every night.
After the proposal post, a lot of my friends and colleagues started reading my dayre and that scares me!
Firstly they probably thought my dayre posts are all super exciting but now they'll see how much it's all just about what I eat everyday lol *yawns
Secondly, now they'll know so much about my life that I never really share about! How much I talk about my failed diet on a daily basis, how lame I am sometimes, how self-indulgent I can be hahaha 😌
It's different when you're writing to an audience who doesn't know you in real life as opposed to people who see you daily. It's as embarrassing as your mom reading your diary wtf (which I have very vivid memories of...)
