Krabi, KL, Batam

Since I have some spare time at work, why not I complete my honeymoon/holiday mood after GC. Let’s just combine everything since I have lesser pictures for KL and Batam.

So our flight for Krabi was the next day after returned from GC. Did we feel tired? Nope not at all. Always not feeling tired when it comes to holiday kan! Haha! 

Our flight was about 2hrs. Plus minus. We reached and waited for our transport to the hotel. It was about 30-45mins drive. Reached hotel, received a welcome drink and waited to be checked in. Little did we know the manager of the hotel gave us a free upgrade to the honeymoon suite! Alhamdulillah! Hehe.

Washed up and off we go to grab our lunch. When we were planning for this trip, all we did want to do was just rest, relax and eat eat eat. Nothing much of shopping. So that’s what we did. We only spent 1 day of island hopping. That is a tour. It was the phi phi island hopping, so there were 5 islands included in that trip. 

The next few days there was just filled with food, food and more food. On the last night, we had our full body massage. I guess just let the pictures do the talking ya? Haha. 

Krabi is definitely one of the places that we can go back and forth just like KL. Its all about the cheap food! 

On Christmas, we head over to KL with our friends. Nothing much tho. Just spending the long weekends there. 

And lastly, during the long weekends of the NYE, we head over to Batam. Same like KL and Krabi, just spending the holiday for cheap food! Namer je countdown kt batam, tapi both sleep at 10pm. Haha! 

I guess thats all the places I go right after the wedding. Which takes forever to jote it down here. Till my next post! 

Gold Coast

Since I have some free time right now, I guess, it’s time to type out about my honeymoon in GC right? Haha, sorry, lambat 5 bulan. 

We scheduled our flight to be 2 days after the event. So it gave us some time to settle/return back all the rental items like baju baju pengantin and dulang hantaran. Our flight was on Tues night. So we had a heavy meal before boarding because we thought, 8hrs of flight=8hrs of sleep.

We reached GC the next morning. Waited for our car rental to pick us up to bring to their rental shop. Filled up some details and done we go head over to our apartment. Despite knowing that the check in time was 3pm, we just tried our luck in checking in early. 

Our room was hugeeeeee. And our view was niceeee.

First day, we went over to the nearest shopping centre aka the biggest and most time spent at, Pacific Fair, to get some groceries. And yes, we found Asian Supermarket and bought lots of maggies. First day was nothing much. Just walked around the Shopping Centre and drive around our apartment area. 

Second day, we made plans to go Harbour Town. It was a 30mins drive from our apartment. It’s a factory outlet, so yes expect lots of shopping! 

We went surfer’s paradise in the evening for their night beach market. 

Third day, we went Movie World. We started early in the morning since it opened at 10am. It was a 45mins drive. 

We didn’t spent so much time there as there were just few rides for adults. Nothing much but more of sight seeing and taking pictures. We proceeded to Sea World Dr to get Peter’s Fish n Chips. The hype people are talking about whenever they are at GC. And yessssssss, it was soooooooooooo fresh and good! Oh pls I’m already thinking of it now. The portion is so huge!

We even packed some back for dinner and breakfast the next day. 

Forth day, we drive up to Brisbane especially for their DFO outlet. It was a 2hrs drive. And yes the drive was sooooo worth it! Because the brands, things, clothes, everything was soooo much more choices and cheaper!! A place that I’ll definitely come back to! We spent the whole day there. Like literally from morning till evening. Before going off, I have to get my favourite coffee from Zarraffa’s. 

Fifth day, we went for jetboat extreme early in the morning. It’s located at surfer’s paradise. Since we are there, we thought of walking around there after, but little did we know the ride of the jetboat literally drenched us from head to toe! And! We just had our morning bathe! So yea, gotta go back to our apartment and bathed and then out we go again. We dropped by GC mosque. It’s located in a very quiet neighbourhood. We drive around GC and walked around Pacific Fair again to grab some food to bring back to SG. And then we call it a day. 

Sixth, and last day, we head over to Harbour Town again to do last min shopping. Just grabbing whatever we can there. Went back and start our packing. Sighhh, overweighed. What to do. Just tried our luck into checking in the luggage.

Our flight next day was scheduled in the morning. We had to wake up at 5+am and returned back the rental car. We didn’t include any food in the flight back to SG, cause we thought we could just sleep it off. But…… We got hungry. Luckily we saved some snacks in our bag to snack through the flight back. Reached SG at about 3.30pm. Head to teh tarik for some Malay food cause we have been craving for one! And off we go home to rest for our next flight the next day, hehe 🙂

KKH. 

Hey hey ladies! 

Do anybody know if kkh private is able to claim medisave? Are we able to choose the class wards too? Cause I heard if we choose a doctor privately from kkh, it wont be claimable via medisave. 

A long hiatus

It’s been soooooo long since I last updated. Probably about close to 3 months I guess? Haha. It’s true, when you become a wife, you get too busy with life. You’ve got work during the day, and you continue your work as a wife when you comes home. It just never stops. Not even during the weekends. I don’t know where the time go? Things have been going pretty well for us, alhamdulillah. I’m settling down to being a wife, and all I can say is, life’s definitely not what you imagined or expected. But it’s still bearable. And I’m glad to say that I’m coping it well. I’m still living with my parents, so things are still easier around. We are still waiting for our ‘forever belum siap bto.’ Expecting to siap probably by mid next year. Which means more time to save up! 

On a side note, we’ve just collected our wedding albums from Project Pixel. Definitely worth every penny! Love love all the shots from our photographer, Juffri.

Bali? 

Hi hi! Any recommendations for a first timer in Bali? Hotel area near kuta beach. Affordable yet clean and neat with good breakfast? Recommendations for halal food there? And if you have any reliable driver that will be able to drive us around which is affordable? 

Thank you in advance ladies! 

Reviews! (Part 2)

Henna:
My henna was done 2 days before the event. I chose AdornedbyAmeerah because I super love her intricate designs. Orang kate ape tau, nak buat, go all out saje la. Haha. I even ask the husband if I can do again my stains, he say tunggu 1 year anny nanti. Haha. Pong boleh la.
Oh oh, Hi Ameerah! She is also one of the BTB here!

Dulang trays:
My dulang hantaran trays was done beautifully by SID. It was already included in the wedding planner package. My bunga rampai and sireh junjung too. Chose my colours and tadaaaa. So simple yet elegant. Love love!


Hand Bouquet:
My hand bouquet was specially made by love from my dearest aunty. Super love the colour combinations and layouts of the leaves!

Invitation cards:
My cards were printed by Thumblinda. As mention on my previous previous previous posts. I got my card super early! Linda was so prompt and efficient! With it I did my instagram tag poster and directional poster with her too!Love how sweet the design looks like!

Photobooth:
Initially I didn’t want a photobooth. Because I don’t think it’ll be necessary. But after looking at their work and designs, I fell for it. Despite knowing it would broke the hole pretty big. I was about to let it go until my mom saw their work and loved how it looks like! My guests enjoy themselves! Love that it was like a bookmark!

Wedding cake:
My wedding cake was made deliciously by Aiida(my_candyplate). From the start of this planning, I knew I wanted something that won’t go to waste. I wouldn’t want to pay hundreds and get it thrown. I decided to do cake in a jar. Firstly, hygiene. It is an open space, I wouldn’t  want a cake to be left alone out with whatever it can attract gone to waste. I decided to get a small cake(for the sake of the cake cutting) and cake in a jar around it as a tiers. The cake is superbly delicious eh! Mane tak! You can never go wrong with Nutella! Hehe! I knew I wanted to give out the 40. Are in a jar sendiri. Tapi bile toleh, tinggal  10. Asked my dad to keep it aside. End of the day, kat rumah nampak 4 je  😦 Alangkah sedey. But my cousins who got them, reviewed on how nice it tasted. Hehe. At least I now know hundreds of dollars never gone to waste at all!

Marhaban:
My marhaban was on the night of the nikah day. It was chosen and recommended by my dearest grandma. It was impromptu, but I love how everything is being played. It somehow completes the nikah day event. 

Kompang:
Our kompang was booked by my husband. I’m not really cerewet. As long it plays nicely and smoothly I’m fine with it. He chose Kompang Warisan Utara. And alhamdulillah, everything was smoothly played. I just love how kompang lifes up the place even more. 

Guest table frames:
Since I was having quite some free time during the waiting game. I decided to edit and decorate a simple white frame, that can be found in Ikea, and input some details like my hashtag and the event itinerary. Ini setakat suka2 sahaja. But loved the end product of it. Good job Marissa!

And here ends the reviews I’ve been pending for quite some time. And here also ends rants of my wedding journey. It’s so sad knowing that this journey has end. All the stress, hate, love, sadness, happiness in 1 journey. I’m definitely gonna miss the whole planning process and events. If only I could do it all over again, but of course with the same man! Hehe!

To those who are still waiting and planning, enjoy these moments while it last. Don’t feel like it’s still a long way to go. It’s not. Everything will just happen in a click. And then you will be back to reality in no time. May your preparations and planning goes smoothly as planned.
