Pre-wedding photoshoot

I will remember this shoot for life i think, as it was too memorable for me. Not referring to the fanciful shoot , was referring to the disaster that happened to me.

I was waiting for my period to come on the 18th but it didn't and i kept praying that it would come at least 19th but no. It chose to come on the 20th. 

Woke up at 8am and prepared ourselves and went to fetch hubby's friends who is volunteered to video some behind the scene for us during our photoshoot(thankful). During the trip towards JB, i quickly pop pills and it worked for me, thank god but it just had to make me feel bad by having diarrhea.

I was like, ohmyf*god, JAM towards JB.
I kept myself calm and endured all the way through the customs .
Jam for 20mins?
My hubby then went wrong ways and we stopped by expressway while waiting for his msia friend to come lead us the way to the bridal shop.
Waited another 15mins.
Can you imagine my tummy turning upside down?
Then i told him to hit straight and we stopped by a restaurant and continued waited for his friend .
 I just had to rush to the toilet man!

Ok, relieved!Phew!
Ok you all wouldnt want to know the details haha!

His friend couldn't find us and i chose to call the bridal shop to send somebody to come lead us the way and we got to the bridal shop within 5mins. 

(my hubby felt handicap without his trusty gps)
 that was the car from bridal shop

Was late but fables warmly welcomed us :)
Met my mua, very young girl but i already read alot of good reviews about her so i was very relieved during the makeup & hairdo session.

I was so relieved that i didnt have bad cramps that day(i have bad cramps every month) and i thought i was okay but i was wrong again. I did not have breakfast because i did not have any appetite to eat and i thought i was alright but i was so wrong!

I blackout during the first outfit shoot, within merely 15mins shoot? There was a moment when the photographer wanted us to look at each other and when i turned my head towards my hubby, i told him ' i cannot see your face anymore' .

I quickly squatted down for awhile.
 I was praying for good weather that day for pretty photos , it was really good but SCORCHING HOT!

had blackout for the 2nd outfit shoot again
i blame my poor health.

for every shoot done, we headed back to the bridal studio for a change of makeover which i like it very much because i can have 5 different looks ( we chose to have only outdoor and no indoor shoot for our pre wed album)

when we got back, i quickly changed into sarong and rested on the sofa like its my home.
Totally unglam but was felt terrible and so i went to puke after i got the urge to. Only liquid. 
once again i dont think you will want to know the details haha!
but i felt much much better x 10 after puking and had a quick bite after that.

my hubby went to had his hair washed for a different look. he is as vain as a vainpot i know haha!
thats him

back to my normal self and more engertic even the staffs there noticed it haha!
they are all so sweet, went to get me chocolates, candies and offered me hot milo to make me feel better :)

i totally love my mua, she is very professional in what she does and each look only takes her about 10-15mins?
she planned beforehand for all the 5 different looks for me.
good for clueless brides like me:)
fyi i brought my own ampoules & eyelash over

i loved the eye makeup
haha i know i look weird here

the 4 different looks
 i think the makeup was right and i don't look sick right? haha!
anyway, i like all of the looks no matter whether if anybody else like it or not.

during the third shoot, we did a little bit of videography shoot with his friends.
i brought some props, not say props but some paper which i printed

 Our shoot ended at 8plus as we had a night shoot and most of the staffs left except for one or two to stay over to help me get changed and removed the hair accessories and gave me a normal hairdo in order not to look like a weirdo on the way back home.

 i was totally pleased with the bridal shop so far cause they provided us with good service , very friendly and of course,very professional in what they do. 
the camera man assistant has the most tiring job scope, cause they have to go under the sun anytime anwhere, hold our gowns, swing our gowns and run away from camera for everytime when photographer didn't had good shot.
Not sure about the photography skills yet but i'm sure they have at least captured some good photos.
fables bridal couture ftw!

we went to have the famous 'ah piao' wanton mee after the shoot and my hubby fell in love with it hahah i love the lok lok though

the road back home was smooth and the first thing was to shampoo and generously apply conditioner on my hair.
concussed into deep sleep for that day

for the day that i will remember for life

Hair savior

And of course, my hair savior got to be my hubby lol!
Just a day before our photoshoot, he arranged a slot for me to dye my ugly black roots and a comfy hair treatment before my hair get damage from the zig-zag perming and back combing the next day.

 my savior haha

I would love to have shiny and healthy hair everyday but i'm a lazy girl as i dislike to do hair treatments at home when he gotten me a few bottles to use.
I just love to sit in the salon and enjoy the steam! haha

Lemon water

I'm now practicing the habit on replacing water with lemon water


Helps with stomach issues like nausea, heartburn, even parasites. it also relieves bloating and constipation, and when the juice is drank on its own, it can even cure hiccups! Yay!

Weight loss. Oh yes, mix lemon juice with lukewarm water and honey, and your metabolism will be on its way to Kate Moss-ville.

let's live healthy!
but i didnt manage to coax my hubby to drink this with me cause he hates lemon water:(

Eat clean

when i was your man

I hope he buys you flowers
 I hope he holds your hand  
Gives you all his hours 
When he has the chance 
Take you to every party  
Cause I remember how much you loved to dance 
Do all the things I should 've done  
When I was your man 
Do all the things I should 've done  
When I was your man

well done

who am i saving for really?
go think about it before you say anything

Low carb

  Googled low carb diet plan and found this useful

i had a hard time trying to convince myself to not to love mee hoon kuay, soft drinks, ice cream,calibee chips, breads, cakes, ramen and etc because these are my favourites:(

Flour should be my best friend not enemy:(


Foods to Avoid

You should avoid these 7 foods, in order of importance:
  • Sugar: Soft drinks, fruit juices, agave, candy, ice cream and many others.
  • Gluten Grains: Wheat, spelt, barley and rye. Includes breads and pastas.
  • Trans Fats: “Hydrogenated” or “partially hydrogenated” oils.
  • High Omega-6 Seed- and Vegetable Oils: Cottonseed-, soybean-, sunflower-, grapeseed-, corn-, safflower and canola oils.
  • Artificial Sweeteners: Aspartame, Saccharin, Sucralose, Cyclamates and Acesulfame Potassium. Use Stevia instead.
  • “Diet” and “Low-Fat” Products: Many dairy products, cereals, crackers, etc.
  • Highly Processed Foods: If it looks like it was made in a factory, don’t eat it.

They have came up with sample low carb diet menu too :


  • Breakfast: Omelet with various vegetables, fried in butter or coconut oil.
  • Lunch: Grass-fed yogurt with blueberries and a handful of almonds.
  • Dinner: Cheeseburger (no bun), served with vegetables and salsa sauce.

i seriously think their menu caters to rabbits, not me:(
