It's now October 9. 14 days. Read that. 14 days before the big day. And I'm here in Davao. Away from home, my Myke, my cute doggies. Away from my suppliers. Away from strenous preps.
When I was first advised that I would be sent to Cebu and Davao for 8 days, I was excited for the trip but I can't help worrying. There are some things on our list that have to be attended and I wasn't sure if our preps would still be moving along even if I'm gone. So before leaving Manila, I made a to-do list for Myke and made sure that our coordinator has been given the guest list so the RSVP broadcast could commence. I've given instructions to Ricci to assist Myke anyway he can while I'm gone.
I was a bit frantic on our first two days in Cebu, but I finally learned to let go and accept the fact that we have to make do with the little time we'll have once I get home.
Based on our conversation earlier, seems that Myke has been busy making asikaso with some of the details. I'm happy and proud of my hubby-to-be. I can't wait to get home and give him a well-deserved kiss :)
As I'm on a business trip (going to and from briefings was pretty much my agenda), I wasn't really able to explore much of Cebu and Davao. It isn't my first time here but then I really wasn't here for vacation before either. Maybe Myke and I could make some travel plans :D
It's 22 days before the big day and I'm cramming! Yep, I didn't think I'd have to cram but I would be flying out of Manila and will be gone for more than a week (duty calls *sigh*). So that means I'd be unproductive for 8 days!
For someone who's gonna be married, 8 days is a lot of precious time and there's still a bit of work to do. The list of to-do's I've made don't seem to be that alarming but I guess I tend to make sure everything has been covered. No wonder my coordinator told me I'm OC.
There's not much I can do about it cos I'll be leaving on Monday already *sigh*
27 days! If I've felt pressure over the last few months, what more now that it's only 27 days before the big day!
I've had my third fitting last Saturday and I had one of my SS, my MOH and Myke with me. My SS's dress needed some more alterations while my MOH took hers home already. My gown needed only minor adjustments (hem line and straps) but Myke's suit was a bit snug. The color choice for his suit though is nice (thanks to moi) and he looked cute with his pink accessory. We still have to coordinate the fitting/ pick-up schedules of the other entourage members but I'm relying more on Myke for that. Thank God for a supportive hubby-to-be :D
Myke spent the Saturday evening with us during which he (we) had some heart to heart talk with my parents. But even before the conversation started, my mom started crying! Mama naman! I didn't want to start crying myself cos I know my mom and I could do some serious bawling duet so I began cracking up jokes. Myke said I was being makulit but I knew my parents well to know the best tactic to ease up on their 'water works'. I know that my parents would dearly miss me cos I am such a good daughter :P contrary to what my mom had said to Myke. She was telling ALL to Myke - my being lazy, hot-tempered etc. (nice one, Ma!).
This made my day :) Thanks Libz!
I wanted to move Sookie's leg a little lower.. Yum.
I've been meaning post an entry regarding this for a while now but somehow I kept putting it off because of work and wedding preps. Anyway, it might be bit overdue but I hope it might still help some couples who are looking for a venue for their prenuptial / engagement shoot.
So, you're looking for an outdoor venue for your shoot? There is one right in the heart of Quezon City - the Ninoy Aquino Parks and Widlife Center. I used to pass this by on my commute home but had never entered the premises up until Myke and I had to scout prospective venues ourselves.
The area is quite large with two entrances - one at Quezon Ave. and the other (with parking) at North Ave. As you could see in the map below, there is a lagoon (the bridge is a nice setting); also a rescue center, picnic groves, play grounds etc.
Side kwento: There is one funny bird at the Rescue Center (I can't recall the bird specie) on whose cage there's a sign saying "Bawal magsabi ng 'Pangit'". Of course being pasaway, there are some people who can't resist saying "Pangit!". So what does the bird answer? It says, "Oink! Oink!". Ha ha ha! It was just an amusing bird :D
By the way, you could take pictures of the animals at the center but remember not to use flash.
The season finale of True Blood was shown just last Monday and I still can't believe that 12 episodes went by so fast :( The new season won't be until next year so right now I'm sad and a bit frustrated to be left hanging. I want more, more, more!
I am now feeling A+ after yesterday. :D
So? Updates? Hmm..
After two days of cutting, sticking and printing, our invitations have finally been assembled and are now ready for distribution. Don't get us wrong, the Wink invitations are great but we wanted to add a few additional touches :)
I'll probably post the details on my post-wedding kwento though I'd let Che, a friend and co-W @Wie have a peek on our actual invites since we have the same invitation supplier (at usisera kasi siya. Ha ha! Peace, Che!).
Some of the invites have been distributed already especially those for our colleagues. Some, which are for mailing, have been addressed and are just waiting to be dropped at the post office :)
