Our Wedding Diary 30: A touch of Vintage and a Travel Theme Wedding

Heard that right, I super love vintage details, so we will have it on or wedding theme. The other one is the Travel theme concept because both of us loves to travel.

The vintage theme would reflect on the entourage clothes, my gown and the reception set-ups. The Travel theme will also be incorporated in the details of our weddings and favors.

Here's our wedding Board Inspirations

Our Wedding Diary 29: Weddings and Debut 2010

2 weeks ago, I went to Mega Trade mall in order to attend the Weddings and Debut 2010. I was really excited as I’ll meet a fellow w@wie, Sis Maggie. She kept me company throughout the day. We went to the W@W (Weddings at Works) booth to check if Mam Benz is there. Luckily, we had a short conversation with Mam Benz and were able to meet some w@wies too. Now, I can put a face to their signatures or names. We usually signed our w@w emails with our name and the groom’s name. On my end, I use this:

Roj and Khim

December 30, 2010


We headed at Gervy's Amazing Cakes booth to inform her that we change our wedding date. As always, she was so accommodating. I booked her one year ago, at the same bridal fair and same venue. You can check it here. We’re going to visit his shop for the final cake design and I’m so excited. Since we’re going to have a Vintage and Travel theme wedding, here’s a few design that will serve as an inspiration for our wedding cake.

These last two pixs are our favorite!!! Especialy when I saw the LV bag.hehehe. Our cake design will be a combination of the two designs below... I can't wait to see the final sketch of our wedding cake!!!

I also have saw some cake toppers and I fell in love with them. They are all perfect for our wedding theme.

These topper reflects our passion for biking, shopping and traveling.

...but when Roj saw this topper, He smile and said "This is the perfect description of the bride and the groom, especially the BRIDE. I checked it and I laughed after seeing it, indeed it is a perfect description of "US"!!! Especially the BRIDE!!! hahaha. Check the picture below and you'll know why.

I guess we're going to use the second one as our cake topper!!!I super love it!!!

Another accomplishment during the bridal fair,I was able to book my Hair and Make Up Artist. I panicked when I found that Tito Eddie Bruan was booked on my wedding day. Sis Maggie, said that I should look for a replacement right away. I finally did!!! I super love my make up, I super love the HMUA. I booked Val Villarin. Yup, di ako nag inquire jan before kasi pinag aagawan talaga yan eh saka mahal ung rate. But good thing, he offer a good package during the fair and he was available on my wedding date. After my trial and make up, I booked him right away without any hesitation. You can check some of my photos below or you can also check some of the photos here. Will be having another trial make up, maybe this June or October during our prenuptial shoot.

Wheeww..I also booked SJT String Ensemble as our Singers and Musicians. I feel in love with their performance. I booked them right away,after they sung the "Two Words" by Lea Salonga, dun pa lang medjo naiiyak na ako eh so panu pa pag wedding day ko na. Their voice were so great, so I booked the 2 lead singer that was present on that day. They were so terrific I know they will be a big hit on our Big day!!!

I'll be posting my wedding kwentos tomorrow. hehehe. I still have 3 post pa but don't worry guys, I'll keep you updated.

Khim's Thoughts 22:Random Thoughts on a Manic Monday

The last 4 or 5 entries that I posted were stories about my experiences last year. Now it’s time to start posting my 2010 journey. As promised in my previous post, I vow to update this blog as often as possible. So, here I am on a Manic Monday- sharing thoughts about some aspect of my life!!!

Random Thoughts on Beauty and pampering

1.)I want o have a new haircut. I’m browsing the net for inspirations.

2.)I’ll be having a body spa every first week of the month, facial during 1st and 3rd week of the month, foot spa every 2nd and 3rd week of the month and hair pampering once a month. In short gastos every week sa mga kaartehan. Hahaha

3.)I discovered that the Johnson and Johnson’s body wash are good. I can now get rid of those expensive body wash because the new Johnson and Johnson’s products can do the magic to my skin. I love it! Feed your skin!

4.)I have a new beauty and shower buddies; I’ll discuss it in a different entry maybe this weekend. They all works and you should try them too. The result is really amazing and it’s not that expensive!!!

Random Thoughts on Fitness and Health

1.)Finally, I find myself being conscious about my weight and figure. I guess it’s just normal for all brides to be. I try to check all the nearby gym in order for me to work out. Yes, those who know me will say “Gym is not a part of my vocabulary!!!” but I guess it’s time to begin my Fitness routine. I’ll try to jog whenever I have time and try to involve in sports again. That will be a perfect start and hopefully after 4-6 months I can see some changes especially in my waistline. Hehehe.

2.)I start avoiding sweets, fatty foods and carbo. I have to avoid my favorites this time and that includes lasagna, pizza, spaghetti, carbonara and etc. My dietitians said I can still have those foods but it just have to be in small servings. When I heard that I asked her “Define small serving?”, she answered back with a commanding tone “only 1-2 tablespoon, just enough for your taste buds to savor the flavor. You have to chew it very slowly and take water in between so that will make you feel full!!! Waaahhhhh… How can I give up my favorites? But if I can have a good shape by just giving up these foods then why not. I’m determined to do it!!! I will and I can!!!

3.)I’ll be going to an OBGYNE as early as now because I have an irregular menstrual cycle. This will be one way of preparing for motherhood. As you all know, I’ll be getting married this December and I don’t want naman na kung kelan kasal na ako saka ko pa lang malalaman if there’s something wrong with my reproductive system. As early as now, I want to know if there’s any problem or if this irregular menstrual cycle can affect conception. If there’s a problem it’s not too late to find a cure for it, right? So after our wedding I can really say that I’m healthy enough to have a baby. It’s our responsibility to ensure that we’re healthy sa lahat ng aspect. I’ll be having an executive check up as well.

4.)I’ll be going to the dentist in order to have a dental extraction. Actually, it’s a difficult extraction daw parang ooperahan ako ganun pero safe naman sya. Since, dental checkups and dentures are cover by our HMO card, I’m going to use it. Sabi nga ng supervisor ko before “ABUSE YOUR HEALTH CARD”.

Take good care of our health and have a healthy lifestyle in order to have long life!!!

Random Thoughts on Work

1.)I got regularized last January 1, 2010 and it’s really a relief! I also have a good salary raise and I can say that I’m really happy with it.

2.)I have to focus on my stats especially my QA. Maybe I need to slow down a bit in answering queries in order to focus on my quality.

3.)I cannot say that I’m enjoying a lot but I cannot also say that I’m sad. Tama lang. Siguro kasi I just missed my friends; the Morning Girls and my Chat family. That’s life, my Suth days are over but I can still communicate with my friends anytime. Just want them to know that I really miss them!!!

4.)After 11 month’s I’m back to the grave yard shift. The last time that I had this shift was with my former company pa. That’s not a problem for me, actually mas gusto ko to kesa sa midshift. Our graveyard shift starts at 9:30pm – 6:30 am. Right after work I can still fix my things sa house. Then do a little net surfing, read books and magazine and surf the net. Pag kasi midshift ako parang ala akong life eh hehehe. Mid shift kasi sa new department ko is 1:30pm- 10:30pm. So basically ung araw ko ala akong nagagagwa. May nagagawa lang ako pag sa rest day. At least pag sa grave yrad shift naka set ako matulog ng 10:00pm then gising ako ng 6:00pm. Yung mga activities ko nakakagawa pa ako then before 10 am and after 6 pm. Then I still have the time to watch the news and some shows.

Pero syempre, nothing beats the Morning shift!!! It’s my favorite shift. It starts at 5:30 am -2:30 pm. I had a time to go malling after work and unwind ng konti sa mga quiet places. Then pag uuwi ako less traffic pa din. I can still watch tv by night time, read a good book and blog until 10pm. Hehehe.

5.)Just after signing my regularization papers, the thought of resignation comes after. Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy with my salary and with the company, it’s just that I want to focus on our business. Mas masarap kasi ang merong business, you’re the boss of your own company. Then young oras mo hawak mo and you can do the things that you want without thinking kung malate ka ba, kelangangn hit ang mga stats and etc.

6.)The thought of working abroad comes in. Roj and I are still thinking about it. We’re preparing for it but it’s not yet final. We’re still weighing things out if it will be better to leave everything here and go to a place that’s both new to us. Hopefully, by next quarter we already have a decision about it.

Random Thoughts on my activities and interest

1.)I want to buy cooking and baking books to enrich my cooking and baking skills.

2.)I also want to buy books about mga places na gusto ko pountahan. I’m eyeing a book entitled “Touring Europe”.

3.)I want to travel this year. I want to visit a place where I can relax. Maybe a nice beach or province na madaming mapupuntahan para naman my vacation leave won’t be put to waste.

4.)I also want to travel abroad. Maybe Macau or Asian cruise will do. Just hope we can go there this year.

5.)I need to buy books. I’m done reading the books na andito sa house.

6.)I’ll watch a movie every month with or without a companion. Hehehe.

7.)I update the title of my post to be organize. I also had a certain topic that will be discuss each day. I’ll post them in a different entry so that you can check them.

There go my random thoughts on a Manic Monday. Got to go now and rest for 1.5 hours. I still have a shift tonight. Have a good night everyone! Toddles!!!

Time To Celebrate 5: October 2009

Roj went here to celebrate his birthday and we had a great time. It was an official eat out and GALA date everyday!!! hehehe. I treasure every moment as in. 9feeling hi-skul. LOL) Pag pinagsama sama mo kasi ung araw na the two of us were together, I bet that will be 60 days or less lang. I’ll be posting some of our pictures in my multiply account, but for now here are some of our pictures.

SM Mall of Asia

Men are BORN to WORK...
WOMEN are born to be PAMPERED... hehehe...
One way of pampering women is through SHOPPING...
And I'm gald I'm being PAMPERED WELL!!!LOL

One of my addictions...hahaha....basta shoes and flipflops...

I lose few inches so we bought a pair of jeans. I find a cute sneakers at Bench too and I really love it!!!

While I'm busy looking for the perfect shoes that will fit, Roj is busy checking the items that are connected with his sports and hobbies. He find a nice bag at The North Face and a few items for his bike.

We find ourselves in our "batang isip" nature and Roj really likes my "kakulitan" that time. He even took a picture when I "make face" and when I chased Nemo. Take a look..

We finally had our dinner at Burgoo. Super kulit pa din ako as always!!!hehehe. These are the moment that I thank God that I'm alive...ala nang mas sasaya pa dito...kasama mo mahal mo...cheessssyy but so true....

The next day we headed towards Gerry's Grill and Giligan's the following day. I told you "EAT OUT" is an understatement. hehehe

The way to a man's heart is through his stomach and I must agree to that. Roj finished 3 servings of my chicken sopas. He's even craving for it when he went home to Isabela.

3 SERVINGS OF masarap na SOPAS + a good cook like me's the outcome

ANTOK sa kabusugan. hehehe
