I asked Hunny if he wanted to have these as our wedding rings, turns out he has designs already for ours! But, it's a secret!! :)
Description from Fabuluster: Searching for a truly unique wedding band? Tired of finding the same plain bands or designs that just come from a catalogue? This is just what you were looking for. It is many things: unique, sentimental, custom, heirloom quality crafted ,and you are completely involved in the making process. I send you my Impression Kit in the mail. Once you receive it, imprint the entire length of your finger and/or your fiancés finger separately. Then you mail that back to me. Once I receive it here in my studio in beautiful coastal Maine, I make a wax form from the impression material. Then utilizing the ancient lost wax casting process, I turn that impression into a metal ring utilizing gold or silver. Maybe some day this ring gets passed down to your children- a family heirloom for sure.
How romantic! Your lover touching you, holding your finger, always with you. I would love to talk with you about this exciting process! Only available from Brent Williams Designs with such fine craftsmanship.
Cause I only had a few days in Manila, planning for a surprise took months before February.. :)
Good thing my cousin was an avid customer of Laya. I got the idea so I could surprise hunny... Simple but awesome surprise :)
Location: It might be a bit far and tricky to get to but once you take a seat, it will be all worth the wait. Plus who doesn't want to have that story of the road trip that got you lost. Hahaha! Especially when your friend texts you "pagkatapos ng andoks turn right then andun na un" When he actually meant "Manok ni San Pedro" Hahahaha!
Food: Amazing. Course per course, the presentation was picture worthy. The only thing was Hunny forgot to take photos of his food before he ate it! He was that excited! Hunny and I kept laughing, reminiscing our trip to Phuket, it was definitely a good night. It wasn't too busy. It wasn't too crowded but you can feel that that dinner would lead to a perfect night out.
Ambiance: Romantic. Simple. Breathtaking.
Surprises: I made little things for hunny, a simple note, a simple photo, a writing on an envelope with how I feel, and our phuket keychains :)
Chef Ricci and Ms Irene: Ms Irene was in on the secrets. Big Thank you for saying yes to giving the little surprises :) Chef Ricci presented us with lovely food! Team Laya FTW! For me, Chef Ricci was like Amorsolo with the food presentation. Ms Irene was super friendly and was the most courteous host of the evening. Hunny said he was having nosebleed while I was talking to her. Funny :)
In conclusion: THE BEST! Hunny and I already set the date when we'll be back!! :)

So I've been blog hopping recently and found some interesting wedding sites. I think I might have wedding information overload.
Then it struck me.
Is it really worth it? Is it really worth spending $xxxx.xx amount of dollars for a wedding? Is it really worth for people to take leave, fly for hours just to witness two people celebrate their love for each other in front of God? Is it really?
After much thought and deliberation to myself, I concluded YES IT IS.
1. This celebration is for US. 2. The sacrifices and presence of our friends and relatives is very much appreciated. 3. All the suppliers we chose will definitely make a difference to the celebration. 4. Our family might get chaotic before, during and after the wedding, but it's all going to be worth it. 5. A wedding is not a wedding without who you want to be there to celebrate with you. 6. When you want something, you should not short-change yourself. 7. If you want it, go and get it. 8. Always remember,You deserve it! The last thing you want to remember after your wedding is the thought that "I wish I did this, I wish I had that, I wish we got them, I wish....."
So, with this in mind I am at ease.
Hunny and I have picked who we want to be at the wedding. We have agreed on every supplier. There might have been some debates, but we booked who we thought was right for us. Accepting that some might be lucrative in their rates but geez, their output is something you will remember forever.
So why wouldn't you want a remembrance of forever documented about your wedding?

What to expect: 1. Clean surroundings. 2. Easy to understand Public Transport. 3. Cheap but tasty local food. 4. No tissues/serviettes served in any food court /restaurant. Don’t forget to bring your own! 5. If locals can’t speak English properly, they won’t try to understand you to you no matter how you explain or how you use your hands. Always be prepared and know the vicinity by getting maps and reading signs. Major Suggestions for the best experience in Singapore: 6. Take the glass cable car to Sentosa 7. Airport shuttle to your hotel $9SGD per person. Cheaper than taking a cab! 8. The $3SGD noodle beside Value Hotel Thompson is the best for value for money! 9. Don’t be scared when they talk to you in Singaporean thinking you’re a local. Just smile and quietly walk away. Haha! 10. It does get very humid at times; bring summer clothes, sunscreen, shades and a camera!
Date of Travel: May 22 2009 Weather: Hot and Humid!
Here's the link for the Rates! :) Sunway Lagoon: Tips and Things to Remember 1. Find out how far it is from your hotel, especially if Sunway is a place you’d really like to visit during your stay in Malaysia. Make sure you have transportation booked for drop off and pick up; you don’t want to get duped by expensive/unmetered taxis around the area. 2. If you are only there for a day trip, don’t bring bulky items or if you have to bring bags, deposit them in lockers located near the pools. You can even have your locker for an hour; the only catch is it will automatically open after an hour! Isn’t that a scary thought if you’re having so much fun and forgot the time?! 3. Located around the area are long water rides that have hidden surprises and in all of them you’ll definitely get wet! It not like those rides that splash water only on your legs, these rides will surely drench you and your clothes! 4. When riding the flying fox, bulky bags are not allowed as you end up in the lower end of the pool. Shoes are not allowed as well. If you didn’t leave your things in the locker earlier, it is unfortunate that one of you will have to miss out in riding. You also have to be prepared for the hike to the top of the tower! Be safe, listen to the trainer facilitators, slide and enjoy the ride! 5. Bring sunscreen, the UV gets extreme at times in Malaysia; enjoy the water, the pools do look refreshing! 6. It’s better if you arrive early in the morning so you don’t have to queue for a long time with the flying fox, Grand Canyon, buffalo water slide, etc. 7. There are shower areas that are set up like a carwash; you walk in and water will just burst out of the Aztec designed walls. Our friends didn’t know it was automatic and when they posed for a photo; they got soaked with the sudden burst of water! (Haha!) 8. I do recommend you try out the ATV ride! It’s always been popular; get in early so you don’t have to queue long. We did wait around half an hour for our turn even if we were there early. The actual ATV ride was around 10mins because when we were there, half of the ATV Park was getting renovated. (Bummer!) 9. There are food stalls around the whole lagoon so you’re sure you won’t get hungry! If any case that you don’t like to eat at the Lagoon, the Sunway Pyramid is right beside it. One of the biggest mall’s I’ve ever been to. 10. Last but not the least, walk, run and jump across the longest suspended bridge!! Don’t forget to look down!
It was suppose to be a travel blog, where I would post every little detail of each travel, from the Seat number of the plane, to the food that was served.. But since we're getting married soon, it will now serve as a double purpose blog! Travel and Wedding blog! =) Happy Reading!
