Two years

Wednesday, December 29, 2010

It's been two years & we're still going strong. I'm proud to say this is the 2nd time WL & I celebrated our Christmas together. One might've assumed that we would've planned for a big bang celebration or dine in at a lavish restaurant. Nothing extravagant, peeps. We only went to Riblee's on Christmas Eve, the restaurant where we celebrated my birthday. Mainly cuz their smoked ham quesadillas is so irresistible~ Yum!

On Christmas Day itself, we stayed at home most of the day. This was the best time ever spent together cuz it's only the two of us. We had Koko Krunch for breakfast - I munched happily in front of the TV while WL busily tapped on his lappie with mouthful of cereals in his mouth.

We went out for lunch at a hawker stall before dropping by at Giant for some grocery shopping. Our initial plan was to cook pasta for dinner but it was scraped off in the end. We didn't buy any ingredients to cook but instead went out for dinner at this coffee shop. I'm not particular about dining in fancy restaurants when it comes to anniversary celebration. But it was a pity that the food we ordered at that coffee shop was below expectation. After dinner, we had a drama marathon until almost 2am. XD

The next morning was pretty much the usual peaceful & quiet environment. Just both of us lazing around, making Koko Krunch for each other & sitting in front of the TV & lappie to munch away. Since we didn't managed to complete the drama series the night before, we resumed the marathon again right up to lunch hour. Not wanting disrupt our drama session, we ordered Domino's delivery. Such sinful indulgence is hard to miss! =D Without doubt, we ordered our usual selection - Aloha Chicken & Classified Chicken - NY crust & thin-crusted respectively. Yum!!

WL fetched me later in the evening & I really didn't feel like going home. It was so much fun & so relaxing. It should've been forever...*sighs* Back to reality. I still have some chores to do back home in preparation for the early CNY. We should have more anniversaries like this. =)

Holy matrimony of the rich & famous

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

This year is probably the year of celebrities' weddings in the local scene. The first to walk down the aisle was Andrea Fonseka with her Australian beau of 2 years at one of the 5-star hotel in KL. Such is their whirlwind romance that she has to accept & be a rather young stepmum to a 17-year-old daughter belonging to his husband & his ex-girlfriend.

Next, we have Harith Iskandar, at 44, getting hitched to doctor & part-time model, Jezamine Lim who is only 27. There's nothing much sensational about this wedding except that it's a mixed marriage & the couple's age gap is pretty far. I guess love really does transcend age, race & geographical boundaries. =)

The next wedding that I'm about to mention is not really a celebrity couple. But no doubt, the reception was celebrity laden mainly cuz the guests were mainly the rich & famous. The interesting about this marriage is that the groom is actually my cousin sis' cousin who is - if I'm not mistaken - chief creative director at 8TV. And the his beloved wife is Stephanie Caunter, sister of Marion Caunter. Sure bet that you understand what I mean celebrity laden ;). Another juicy fact to note that the groom used to date Xandria Ooi. Ain't this exciting? Keep on reading & you'll get to read even more gossipy news. =P

Perhaps it's the trend nowadays or it's the coming of age, Xandria Ooi wedded his fiance, Yuri Wang not long after my cousin sis' cousin got married. I'm guessing that both the cousin & Xandria didn't attend either weddings. Hmm, fair enough.

Lastly, news have confirmed that the much rumoured relationship between SM Nasarudin & Marion Caunter are taking to the next level - marriage. Their union was dubbed the Wedding of the Year, celebrated with much pomp & grandeur. Not only their guests were of celebrity status but many of them are politicians. As if having such influential guest list is not enough, the couple held the reception at Mandarin Oriental KL occupying the largest ballroom they've rented. Sure bet the food is extremely expensive but it made me wonder if they actually tasted good.

Since CNY 2011 is coming soon, we're sure bound to encounter or read about more interesting weddings in 2011. Let's see who will be tying the knot this year. XD

Christmas Town

Friday, December 03, 2010

The Christmas deco was put up not long after I came back from Singapore. WL & I decided to drop by one of the malls for some window shopping & to enjoy the Christmas mood. After all, the Christmas month not only gives you that warm, fuzzy feeling but it's also an important month for both of us to spend more time together. =)

We went to 1U cuz apparently the deco seems really beautiful compared to last year. I caught a glimpse of some pics posted on FB by our friend when some workers were busy setting up the decorations according to this year's theme. It did looked like townhouses. So it was true. A very Christmas townhouse with an artificial skating pond.

The townhouses are actually shops operated by some retailers to display their Christmas goodies. The buildings are not fakes; visitors are able to enter the building & also climb up to the 2nd floor.

For some odd reason, visitors were able to stand on the artificial pond when it was supposed to be off limits. Since we wanted to take pic of ourselves on the bridge, WL & his colleague had no choice but to join the crowd as well.

We took the last shot at the Christmas town before we left to show proof that we were there. =P I mean, who wouldn't want to be part of such scenic Christmas deco. We don't get this often in Malaysia & I'm proud to say that we are way better than our neighbouring country this time which is supposedly famous for hosting extravagant Christmas deco. Sad to say, there was nothing to shout about this year when I was there. The escalating inflation & economic crisis must having its toll on the deco budget.

Last but not least, an aerial view of our very own Christmas town when the coast was clear at the artificial pond.

Let's keep our fingers crossed that we'll be in for more surprises on the deco next year!
