March 23rd, 2018

..was the day we had our wedding dinner celebration in Penang. Most of my family members came from Sibu. Feeling blessed and loved. It was not an easy journey for them as they had to fly from Sibu to Kuala Lumpur and then Kuala Lumpur to Penang. They arrived Penang the day before the BIG day and were in Penang for 3 days and 2 nights.

On the BIG day itself, the husband’s family invited my family to their place as they had provided a simple catering for friends and family. We went there after we had our breakfast in the hotel. We didn’t stay too long as we needed to head back to hotel to get prepared.

Our entry was accompanied by The Dhol Blasters. It was definitely different and I believe all our guests were entertained by their performance.

Our emcee, Jason, did a fantastic job. He controlled the crowd, the time and the activities really well. He had his ways to entertain our guests by engaging them and made our guests to  participate in some of the activities.

One touching moment that night was a speech given by my elder brother. I had never seen him on stage delivering a speech. I am so blessed and fortunate that he did it for me #feelingloved

In order to thank our guests for taking their time to come and celebrate with us on our BIG day, the husband and I gave a small performance. It was something that I really wanted to do in our wedding dinner. Well, I was more prepared than the husband was so, he was basically just moving around aimlessly. We did get a few close friends of ours to join us. Well, it did not go as planned since we never had a rehearsal but we had FUN!

The night ended with lots of music and dance. I had gone back to our room to rest whereas the husband and his family were still in the ballroom. They were there until the hotel staff had to beg them to leave.

March 23rd 2018 was definitely a night to remember and how relieved we felt after.

December 2018

The final month before the end of 2018.

I know I had been procrastinating to update my bog.

I started the month by attending a wedding dinner of another close friend of mine from secondary school. We were in the same class since Form 1 but, we only got really close to each other when we were in Form 4. We were sitting next to each other. We even went to college together and lived there as roommates for one and a half years. We did go through a lot of ups and downs together so, I am really happy that she found the love of her life.

That same month, we finally went to attend a workshop together. We had been talking about doing something together such as painting, baking, etc.

So, what did we do?

As Christmas is around the corner, we went to do Christmas wreath together. It was not as easy as we thought it would be. Still, it was fun!

We had a weekend getaway in Tanjung Jara Resort. It was a honeymoon package we received from Vistana Hotel Penang where we had our wedding dinner. It was a good road trip where we had each other only which means we were able to spend quality time together.

Finally, we had our Christmas celebration with my brother and his friends. It was an enjoyable night with food, gifts exchange and little humans!

November 2018

We were back in Penang longer than usual.


It was Deepavali!

But first, let’s have a triple date.

We met up with 2 lovely couples for dinner and then, ended it with frozen yoghurt. It was a great catch up session and am really happy for all of them because of two things.

One, a couple will upgrade soon to be parents.
Two, a friend is finally in a relationship and he is happy.

Second, I had my be-early birthday celebration with my favourite people in Penang. Well, one of them was sick so, was unable to join though. We had our dinner buffet at G Hotel and went to visit the sick friend after.

It was my second Deepavali open house as a host. As usual, we had two sessions for our invited guests – lunch and dinner. We had delicious food and great friends to hang out with in that one day.

In that same month, another good friend of mine got married. She had her wedding the day before my birthday. We have known each other for more than 10 years so, I am definitely happy for her that she found someone that she can live with.

What’s better than celebrating your birthday with your family? I was not able to celebrate it last year with them as I was still in Taiwan. It felt even better to have Deanne with us.

Last but not least, we had a furry guest that stayed with us for a week. It felt good to have someone waiting for your return though I did feel bad for leaving him alone at home during daytime. Well, we had to go to work though. However, he did make a good friend with the furry neighbour. Up until today, the furry neighbour will still drop by our door to check if the furry guest is still around.

Yeah, we miss him too, buddy.
