MNL Adjustments: have to wait, wedding preps 1st

Man, it's been so long since I updated this.
Thanks so much for the people who do visit the site and leave comments. I super duper love yah all - especially Malou, Cris, Steph, and Michelle!

I'm still struggling with coming back and meeting suppliers left and right.
This wedding is going out-of-control with the guest lists. I'm wondering how I'll be tackling the seat arrangement. Ed and I totally want to get over with this asap! :P There are a few more people we need to still set-up meetings with but so far we are done with the: priest (super duper nice and totally a character), misalette (finally - are much back&forth between our priest and SAC), invites (distributing), coordinator, entourage fitting (done and will have some alterations), cake (meeting again next week), bridal registry (registered and it was great making a "wish list"), got my RTW wedding cord (super nice ~ PM me if you want the info), mom's dress (coming along very very well), arrhae & other wedding items (ordered ~ PM me if you want the info), MOH (layout & number of guests - still working on this) and neckties for entourage (distributed).
I can't wait to wear my gown...oh, I need to pick it up in HK by next week. Yes, I'm flying back for a few days for my gown. :P This is really going down-the-wire! So far, 20 days to go ~ I'm so counting the days.
**For those W@Wies who will be going to this year's Xmas Party - I shall see you there! :D

I can finally post my SUAS layouts. It was totally tough to keep consistent mojo for these layouts. I know there were times when I just wanted to stop...but what the hey...oh well. All item are in the SUAS megakit unless stated. :) This is my very first digital contest. :P

Week One: Stamps
Journaling: I wish for hope to reign strong and true in the hearts of all. Even though hope could erase the pains of the world, it could make the pain easier.

Week Two: Pattern Papers
Journaling: The sweetest moments in my life are pieces of random thoughts and visions that stimulates the senses in my head like the delectible flavors of a drink, the oriental motif of mom’s robe, the addicting embrace of a boy, the festive colors of mosaic tiles, the fragrant scent of flowers, the melodic laughter of a child, and many more...all of these things are tattooed on my mind to be remembered and savoured for years to come.
Supplies: all are from the Stand Up And Scrap Kit.

Week Four: Color
Journaling: Whenever Christmas holiday season rolls around, I go all out “nuts” for a Starbucks’ gingerbread latte, which sadly comes only once a year. I go through the whole year..without it and somehow my body knows its about time. I start smelling nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla round me. I would look for it...think about’s a really bad case of “gingerbread withdrawal”! It doesn’t matter what the heck I’m doing - the all important objective is to have that RED cup of java in the palm of my hands. The drink is like a big warm hug wrapped in a nice RED Christmasy cup - making me remember wonderfulwinter memories in Vancouver - RED stockings, striped RED and white candycanes, RED Santa costumes, Rudolph’s RED nose, etc! And let's face it: ginger and spice are delicious. I could eat them year-round!But, alas, by January the gingerbread latte disappears yet again. Every season I await for its return. Its appearance on the specials board is a better harbinger of the season than the weather or the opening of Christmas display. And every season, I mourn its passing...

Week Six: Anything...what's next?
Journaling: I am looking forward to see two years of hard work, meticulous research and careful decision-making in one special day - the day my soulmate and I would finally tie the knot.Notes: This to me is my own change soon (new challenges, new beginnings) later have kids to share the wonderful world, I grew to love and enjoy all through my life - to teach them how to preserve it in all its beauty and glory.
