Can't wait for the spa treat fr Val and the hen party tmr!! I've heard there's gonna be a funky costume for me to parade down Clarke Quay in *oh dear!* Just glad I did my hair yesterday so at least there's one part of me I don't mind showing off haha ~ Which reminds me of the gorgeous puppies my hairdresser has!! Here's Diamond, she's a shitzu cross breed so her eyes are less protruding and she's such a doll!! I'm not a big fan of doggie outfits but she looks so adorable in her french maid outfit haha! While I was waiting for the hair dye to set in, she was all sprawled in my arms like a doggie plushie... awww....Here are more pictures, this time it's family!

Yesterday my mom and i went for my makeup trial , then Val and I met up with the seamstress doing the jie meis' dresses and finally the videographer, which lasted a staggering 3 hrs. We had so much fun discussing ideas and chatting nonsense till we realised it was 10!! Had barely enough energy to shower before hitting the sack. That said, I'm sorry customised orders are taking longer than expected and I'm looking to finish them by Sat. With only 2 more weeks to W-Day, I'm afraid I will not be able to accept any more special orders till after the wedding. Will finish those on hand then take a much-needed break cos I don't wanna have eyebags on the 24th!!
Looking forward to next Wed cos it's hen night whoo-hoo! A scrub and massage at Body Contours courtesy of Val, then some yummy dinner before hitting the clubs with the rest of the gals ~ not to mention a whole night of cranium, twister and taboo... with even more bottles!! Everyone has booked the next day off for this very reason haha. Matt's stag do is tomorrow, and though I trust him implicitly, his friends can be SCARY. I'm expecting minimal sobriety for the weekend.
Meanwhile have fun with these new pieces that've been lying on my table since last weekend:

Meanwhile here's another piece up for grabs:
Pale blue chalcedony carved roses, lemon quartz drops, gold czech beads & other tangy bobs on 14k chains & hooks. This piece turned out to be pricier than I thought cos it so happens the parts are all from my pricier hoard! (Rhyme not intended)

We sent off Kim (Matt's lil sister) and her friend Sarah off to Bangkok yesterday after a whirlwind weekend of Singapore sight-seeing. These 2 girls are little fireballs of energy! They touched down on Friday night, dumped their backpacks at home and promptly trotted down to the Longbar at Raffles for that must-try Singapore Sling. Which by the way I've never tried till I met Matt. Ask any random local here and chances are they've never had the Sling before so it really is quite amusing most guidebooks insist trying the sling while munching peanuts and throwing the shells all around you!
Whilst I was bling shopping on Sat, they were shopping the whole day at Orchard Rd where Sarah tailored an evening dress for a staggering 390 bucks at one of those small seamstress shops in Far East Plaza!! Maybe I should've gone with them instead. Oh well, damage's done, we learn. Then as you read earlier, we headed down to New Asia Bar for some drinks and actually took the trishaw fr Swissotel to Clarke Quay as a laugh. Mind you that little hazardous journey cost $10 each and nearly cost us our lives with the lorries swerving to avoid our rickety rides that were oblivious to traffic rules ~
Sunday was housey day spent doing up wardrobes and clearing the bags blah blah, I've taken some pics so I'll update this entry with photos soon!!!
Some wedding decor bits my folks bought for the new houseMy purple room! Matt & I both had rooms to do up as we liked, mine was purple his was meant to be grey but now it's a muddy brown hahaa
Daniel's our house elf who helps Matt with all the DIY stuff . This is the new wardrobe for Matt's muddy room ~
Must admit some retail therapy was in place at Maad where I dropped by to visit Xin & Enqi. Which I'm thankful I did cos I met Fiona, the creative stitcher behind Fifi, her budding enterprise named after her pet goldfish! She has the cutest stuff ever and it was her first time at Maad! I simply had to get a little quilt-like tote made out of vintage fabric fr NZ and a little potato boy pin! Her felt owl eyeglass cases were snapped up by Enqi so I could only pine. More, more, fiona!! She's based in Sumatra right now but we can expect to see her at Maad every few months when she's back here.
Check out our picture below, I loook soooo ah soh!! Terrible terrible... hate that little hip roll at the back of my jeans, knew I should have worn a longer top :( Ignore it and the photo of us 3 look quite nice haaaBy the time we got home Matt and I were totally exhausted and dozed off on the couch. While the girls were at the night safari AFTER a whole day's walking around Chinatown and Little India. And they were to fly early next morning! Now you understand when I say they are energizer bunnies.
Okie poks, will upload pictures later tonight and some new pieces too! After I get home fr Titoudao of cos ~ don't you just love waking to fun things to do everyday?

Ok so meeting Dorothy took only a short while, the longest part was going jewellery shopping with the aunts who were tasked with getting me lotsa lotsa diamond blings for the wedding. Many hours later, we went back with 2 diamond necklaces, a pair of earrings and a diamond-studded bracelet. Matt got a pressie too! Haha... a gold ring that my parents will give him during the tea ceremony. Tried my best to get him the least tacky ring possible and I must say I think he'll like it!!
Ok gotta dash now, we're heading out to New Asia for drinks with Matt's sister and her friend. Before I run here's a new piece that somehow made it :p
Topaz Treasure is a gold-toned in neutral autumn shades of browns & yellows ~ a lil flower peeks out from the leaves & citrus beads while twin heart charms dangle sweetly beneath the clusters. Drop is abt 7cm (14k hoop rings & hooks) ~

Creativity work-wise, things have been a bit slow so I'll probably just be listing the odd piece here and there so this blog doesn't collect cobwebs! A revamp is also in the works! :p Kaleidoscope is about colours! A beautiful kamoe pendant strung on matt black chains & metallic czech beads. I have one of my own too! :)
