just watched : the vow

I vow to help you love life, to always hold you with tenderness and to have the patience that love demands, to speak when words are needed and to share the silence when they are not and to live within the warmth of your heart and always call it home.

Assalamualaikum.

hello gorgeous people.

I went to watch The Vow last Wednesday. Cerita ni dah lama keluar kat US tapi baru nak masuk Malaysia. OK, kesian. Masa mula-mula tengok lead actor and actress saya ingatkan it was another adaptation dari novel Nicholas Sparks. Channing Tatum was the lead actor from Dear John dan Rachel McAdams was the lead actress from The Notebook. Both movies were adapted from Nicholas Sparks’ novels. Tapi yang sebenarnya *bak kata Yunalis* this movie was inspired by true events.

Sebelum i go any further on my reviews, here’s the synopsis :

1

A newlywed couple recovers from a car accident that puts the wife in a coma. Waking up with severe memory loss, her husband endeavors to win her heart again.

Bagi saya, movie ni terlalu ringan. biasa-biasa je. kalo tengok trailer memang rasa risau jugak, takut termenangis dalam panggung. Tapi fortunately, takde rasa sedih langsung. Kalo ikut realiti nye, memang sepatutnye sedih, sape yang tak sedih kalo pasangan yang baru kahwin, totally in love with each other, and then ypur partner woke up in the next morning didn’t even recognize who you are. Boleh menangis meraung-raung kot. Tapi sayang nye, rasa sedih tu tak sampai. In the other words, it was a failure to Tatum (Leo) and McAdams (Paige) to deliver the emotions.

Part yang paling saya tak suka sekali masa Leo ceraikan Paige. That was stupid. How can you just give up so easily? Kalau you betul-betul sayangkan seseorang, you should stand by her, no matter how hard the situation was. Maybe orang akan cakap, kalo dah jodoh, they will be together again. But hey, kesungguhan dan usaha juga perlu seiring. Takkan nak mengharap je bulan jatuh ke riba, kucing bertanduk? Based on the synopsis, Leo endeavors to win Paige’s heart again. Really? Really really? Oh Leo, as a lover, u failed. haha. saya emosi.

But in the end, Paige came back to Leo *without any efforts from him*. hmmmm…

p/s : Till this very moment, Paige still didn’t regain her memory. And they have two kids. 🙂

dessert anyone?

1

Assalamualaikum.

hello gorgeous people!

berani tak nak makan pokok bunga hiasan? i dare you guys to eat it! haha

2

bahan-bahan : pound cake, ice cream kesukaan korang, oreo cookies, flower pots, drinking straws and bunga-bungaan.

3

potong cake ikut saiz pasu bunga. nak pakai acuan pon boleh. nak hentam saja lah labu pon boleh.

4

susun cake tadi dalam pasu as the base of our desserts.

5

ukur straw ikut saiz pasu dan potong. jangan bagi panjang straw melebihi tinggi pasu pasal kita takmo straw tu nampak nanti. 🙂

6

cucuk straw kat tengah-tengah cake.

7

isi kan ice cream mengikut perasa kesukaan korang. korang leh sejukkan dulu pasu tu dalam peti sejuk so that ice cream takdelah cepat cair.

8

add some gummy worms for an element of surprise. hehe. ade bran?

9

timbus cecacing itu dengan moreeee ice cream.

10

kasi hancur oreo cookies. boleh pakai food processor. boleh pakai blender. boleh tumbuk pakai lesung batu. erk!

11

tabur oreo hancur atas ice cream. nampak macam tanah hitam kan? hohoho

12

parking bunga dalam straw yang korang cucuk kat tengah-tengah cake tadi tu. itulah kegunaan sebenar straw tersebut.

13

taa-daa. dah siap. cantek kan. dan confirm lah sedap. ice cream with orea. my favorite!

14

pot of roses. sweeeeeeeet!

15

so sekarang dah berani ke nak makan pokok hiasan? *hati-hati korek, kang jumpe cacing. hehe*

i always inspired by aleng tohara’s work. sangat cantek. all the beading were impeccable. aleng wat make up & hair styling jugak. kalo lah den kayo rayo den dah amik ekau jadi designer baju den dah aleng oi. tapi nan hado. T______T nanti saya buat review pasal aleng k. sekarang ni the focus is on ME! haha *berbaur sedikit bridezilla di situ* look at the design at the bottom part of the dress. i want you guys to compare it with this one.

this was by intan norazam. the famous b2b blogger. the queen of DIY. dress ni pon dia DIY. the beading and design. tapi jahit nye tukang jahit professional lah. hehe tapi still *wa tabik sama lu lah, intan*. cantek kan.

wedding and such : ain & pejai – solemnization

Assalamualaikum.

hi gorgeous.

harap-harap post ni tak basi lagi. harap-harap jugak pengantin still in the honeymoon mood. 🙂
*nak tunggu pengantin herself update the details on her blog. tapi…hampa!*

ain & pejai dah kahwen lah!

saya buat dua part ye pasal takmo panjang sangat post ni nanti. part one is the solemnization. it was held early this year. *lupa the actual date sebenarnye* hahahahahahaha

pepagi sesudah subah lagi saya dah merentas LEKAS menuju ke seremban. cuak jugak takut lambat pasal saya bawak bantal untuk alas duduk pengantin masa nikah. kematu pulak muntut pengantin duduk atas karpet je nanti *konon*. majlis nikah di masjid in seremban and upacara batal air sembahyang and bergambar di rumah ain. one thing i can say about the majlis is, it was so intimate and sweet. ahhhhhhhhhhhh. sekali lafaz ain menjadi hak milik kekal pejai. and i have to terima pejai seadanya. *WHY U HAVE TO TERIMA PEJAI??*

so mari tengok gambar sambil i’m telling you guys the story, k.

1

cantek kan baju ain? it was songket with lace patching and some beading. all done by sanak saudara and sahabat handai. 🙂 the baju sewn baju her aunt who was a very good tailor. i also had my wedding dress tailored by her. will blog about it later k. ain’s aunt also did the lace patching as well while the beading did by her sis’s friend. and the final result was awesome! spotted her hand bouquet. it was calla lily with lotssssss of stories. *wink*

2

3

and next is the pelamin. self designed by ain herself and constructed by his uncle *husband makcik ain yang jahit baju tadi tu.* and the chair was made by her other uncle and also self designed by ain. wow. while writing this, i was impressed with your skillful family lah, ling. 🙂

correction : the custom made kerusi was for the reception. not this one. this was her aunt’s. sorry! 🙂

4
dipped apples from My Gorgeous Homemade Chocolate as favors. i misplaced mine so taktau camne rasa nye. tapi midge cakap sedap. 😦

ni je gambar yang ade. bunyi macam banyak je kan tadi. hehe. nanti saya cuba mintak ngn ain ye. takpon kita tunggu ain je update her blog with all the details. lagi afdal camtu kan.

that’s all for part one. nanti kita sambung part two, ok. 🙂

p/s : the bride had some kind of meltdown before and after the nikah. it was HORROR! haha

wedding and such : DIY ribbon wall

Assalamualaikum.

hi gorgeous people.

tengah pening ni memikirkan camne nak gantikan pelamin for my wedding nanti. wedding saya takde pelamin sebab shuk not into sanding thingy dan keluarga saya pon tak beratkan sangat adat bersanding/merenjis. tapi saya still kena fikirkan some kind of replacement for a pelamin. sebab nanti mesti nak kena amik gambar kawen dengan keluarga dan kawan-kawan kan. takkan nak bergambar berlatarbelakang kan dinding umah pulak. sedih. so i’m thinking of a mini pelamin or maybe some kind of photo backdrop.

after so may bloghopping and googling, saya jumpa satu backdrop design yang quite nice to my eyes. and the most important thing is it’s so easy to DIY.

RIBBON WALL.

simple and nice. but the trickiest part is to choose the right color combo. with the perfect color combination, the backdrop will look smashing.

1
saya suke color combination nye. suits my wedding theme so well. material yang digunakan pon macam cantek je. mixed of lace made it looked so vintage. plus, the fabrics just been ripped by hand and no gunting or sewing needed. sonang keje den! hehe

2
untuk yang nak style yang lebih skema/kemas, u guys can use the ribbons instead of fabrics. yang macam ni pon senang kan? just beli a few rolls of ribbons and ikat kat batang kayu and voila! siap!

3
kalo buat tingkat-tingkat macam ni pon cantek kan? hmmm…

saya dah dapat idea! so here’s more pictures to indulge and the how-to steps at the end of this post.

not so hot peri-peri

Assalamualaikum.

hi gorgeous people!

hari ni saya lunch di alamanda, putrajaya with my babe, ieyla. ingat nak makan kat food court tapi it closed due to some renovation works till may. *sigh* thinking of eating at kenny roger’s instead tapi takde pulak kat alamanda like seriously??? so we opted to nando’s.

5

pertama kali makan di nando’s. and my first impression = FAILED! i don’t mind waiting for tables actually as it was lunch hour but what pissed me off was the waitress was like ignoring us. she didn’t even smile at us. at least cakap la ” sekejap ye kak. meja penuh lah” customer service = zero. i hope the food will make it up to it. but unfortunately it wasn’t as good as i expected. *i’m a choosy eater, as said by my friends and my baby boo* i prefer kenny roger’s more.

1
i had hot peri-peri 1/4 chicken with 2 sidelines, potato salad & mediterranean rice

lepas lunch kitorang jalan-jalan pusing alamanda and they were having some kind of baking’s fair till 18th March. and i found my cupcake liners there!!! super yeay! ape yang susah sangat nak cari cupcakes liners kan? memang tak susah. tapi warna yang saya nak tu susah nak jumpa. the price was RM8 for 100pcs and i bought 700pcs. i’m gonna use this cupcake liners for my wedding’s favor. 🙂 there were so many other things that u can find too. all stuff related to baking. books, ovens, cookies cutters, baking pans, etc. and they also have cookies & cakes. and that had made the whole alamanda smelled so delicious! hehe

my 700 cupcake liners. yeay!

we had famous amos ice-cream for dessert. hugs & smooches. it’s in strawberry flavor with choc chips in it. i like it but ieyla said it tasted like antibiotics. huhu
