Last Minute Gown Searching in Sg Wang

Phew.. This few days been busy busy busy. Saturday celebrated mil's birthday.

See that vege king 😁 Food quite good except pork ribs a bit salty. Fish is totally yums. Everything for RM101.

Then due to lotsa orders, my folded boxes also finished. So had to fold more boxes first. This I called it the twin towers of theminidiary πŸ˜‚

Almost everyday gotta call the courier guy to come pick up. Which is good! Hopefully it will stay consistently like this.

Love looking at them stack up neatly. 😍

Monday came, I decided to try my gown one more time. Guess what? It's not as tight as before d! Yay!! Tried with this kissbobo silicone bra but i find it not sticky enuf compared to my other one which dun have push up padding though. This one is when i bend down, it'll fall off.

Tried with my shoes too.

Side view.

Then decided to modify my mum's diamond earrings coz it's rather plain. So I added in pearl teardrops. Gotta make a pearl bracelet to go with it soon.

Then ding dong, parcel from china arrived! Open up see eh why the colour like that one?? It was an utter disappointment this time round πŸ˜“

It's only 55% similar in terms of design, colour and material. Photo still looks ok but actual colour is pink and teal πŸ˜₯

Cutting was slightly big but still ok coz got internal hook.

Somemore thought of wearing these jewelleries d. Top necklace with heart is given to me by mum, longer necklace is from mil (late fil gave her during their wedding) and bracelet was my grandma's who she wore it so very often. Something old something new something borrowed something Blue mahh.

See. Workmanship really cannot make it.

So I'm asking for a refund! 😑

More evidence to proof.

SY came back from work and saw and he also think cannot make it. So i faster google and many recommended to go Sg Wang to look for evening gowns. And today morning morning ady I go.

How much I've walked in search of the gown.

Trying red. But too big and material quality not good.

Simple, like the twisted front design. But i try not to go for chiffon la since rom dress ady chiffon. And no black, later ppl gossip.

This was alright but lace is those soft kind.

Erm nope i dun like flare bottom and this pink.

This was also short but i dun like the many pieces of chiffon dangling from all sides.

This one fitted nicely but bottom also flare. And it's black.

So i tried the red. Cost bout rm400+ which is reasonable for the quality i feel.

Like the design of this and soft pink but it's over RM1k.

Too casual and a bit big. Rm109. Oh my photos are all secretly taken in a small confine space so make do la ya. πŸ˜‚

This one i quite like but my gfs say not nice. It's made from 4 or 5 soft layers just like the one i tried in Designer Bridal Room in Pavilion.

This is the one I tried months back and this costs RM8k+ 😁

Ok next. Actually I like this too. But then pong pong and my white gown ady A line. So give it a go la. Plus the cleavage slit so deep wor.

This one also secretly take. But I'm not much of a pink person.

So then.. After gathering votes and opinions from my mum and gfs, i bought this one! Rm500+ and alteration took only 2.5hours 😊 wanted to remove the mesh on top but seller say too risky for bad workmanship and the cups must open up especially i not very big πŸ˜‚

Back like that with a big hole πŸ˜‚. Sorry bra strap made appearance.

Oklah. Something more body hugging and different from my A line.

Of course not as nice as this lor but so last minute liow and I ady walk whole of sg wang nobody has this. So no fish prawn also good la. (Hokkien translation)

Oh ya, i noticed something. There's many of those old school tailors specializing in custom made gowns and all those uncles all look really alike!! U know those a lil bit niang type πŸ˜‚ I'm shocked! Everytime i enter one shop i see his face I hesitated a moment whether o entered this shop ady or not πŸ˜‚

Ok so my gown is from this shop in Lower Ground Sg Wang. They have been here for 17 years d. Specialized in selling gowns only. Good quality and affordable. Highly recommended! Lady boss also very nice.

Went for scalp treatment today.. Use back Kerastase coz the one at Monsoon ID (hatsuga something) like not very effective. Still lotsa scalp problem after that. They said my scalp is very very very dry, that's why keep flaking. Haven't had this problem before until I started using the HABA shampoo. Tot it's good for my skin so hiau go try the shampoo. Mana tau cause me so much problem after that.

Then he recommended this shampoo for my condition. They selling at RM85. Maybe I get from 11street with discount coupon cheaper πŸ˜…

Kau tim, super clean scalp now. Damage: RM180 πŸ˜“ must make dunno how many bracelet to recoup this loss.

Then mani pedi. Can you believe it this is my very first time?? I think it's gonna be my last time too.. Heartache arrr pay so much for less than an hour's service. Somemore tried the soft gel french manicure and gel pedi.

And you know what?? I felt so cheated coz I saw this promo at FB for their gel service at RM45. Checked with my gfs they say is cheap. So i said ok then. Do that for my toes. Then newbie really suaku la.. Go in ady, terus ask me soak my feet then show me the price list. RM45 is just for the colour coating 😰😰😰 pedicure is RM65 or something. 😱😱😱 So today gel french mani and gel pedi costs me RM230!!!!! πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ’ΈπŸ’ΈπŸ’ΈπŸ’ΈπŸ’ΈπŸ’ΈπŸ’ΈπŸ’ΈπŸ’ΈπŸ’ΈπŸ’ΈπŸ’ΈπŸ’ΈπŸ’Έ

Oklah.. To comfort myself, this will be my first and last. For wedding only. So much for not wanting to spend so much πŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ˜’

Not so obvious in photos. Actual nicer and i like the shade of pink. Oh it's OPI at Colour Culture in One Utama.

My red toes.

Had my food court fav: sizzling noodles. Must not be yee mee, must be yellow mee.

While over looking this and a bunch of teenagers whom I find quite disturbing. It's a group of boys and girls prolly age ard 17 but they way one of the girls literally throwing herself at a boy totally irks me. I was once this age but was always told to carry myself appropriately. Can see that she likes him but he has no feel for her kind. Thinking far into the future, I'm scared.. What if my own daughter behaves like this? How should I approach her?

Cooking today took extra long coz have to protect my nails πŸ˜‚

Until my garlic turned brown 😁

Fried rice fry black black.

Damn!! There's still one baby lizard which i did not manage to kill in my previous 2 traps. So now put the trap heads on with it.

Oh yea, tried making paper peonies the other day.

First attempt: fail miserably πŸ˜’ looks more like carnation.

I wish there's this Relax gun that calms me down abit. I'm totally getting the jitters now πŸ˜– I think it's coz of all the prep work done and about to do. One last day of free day tomorrow and I bet Friday will be a whirlwind of deco and rehearsal going on.

I'm no longer that chill bride to be anymore. Why why why???? Oh jitters pls just go away and don't come back even on Saturday.

Day 196
