We're Tying The Knot!

Saturday, May 24, 2014

Hello, lovelies~ This isn't a beauty related post, but more like a life-related one. If you follow me on instagram, you must have known by now that I posted this here picture down below. This is the main reason why my blog has lack of updates last month, lol.

If you're wondering if that means, Mr. G and I are getting married! After spending 11 years of knowing each other's flaws and imperfections, we are moving forward to another level in our relationship. Never have a I found someone who understood my weaknesses and is always there to pick me up when I have fallen at hard times. We've been through the good and bad, my baby bear. Love you, G~ ^_^

The photo above is by Creatopics and we had lots of fun taking pictures that day. If I have time, I'll blog about the experience of the photo shoot. Would you like to read it? ^_^

Continuing on with the post, I'm not really into traditions and eerything along those lines. However, my cousin in Japan got me a few things as a wedding gift, she says. Since everything is so cute, I thought I would write this in my blog because it is my online diary. You're all welcome to read it, though, lol.

Since my aunt was there to visit her last month, she asked me what I want and I asked for chocolate (as per usual). When I got her packaged, I was blown away by the size of it since it was in a huge plastic bag that can fit a pair of shoes or two. Turns out, she got me gifts for the wedding. Awh, thank you, cousin~ 

Ever heard of the traditional rhyme used for weddings that has originated way back from the 17th century? It goes a little something like this,
"Something old
Something new
Something borrowed
Something blue
and a sixpence in her shoe"

Well, she followed that rhyme and got me those gifts, except for the borrowed part. 




Something old (natsukashii ano koro). She got an album and placed our childhood pictures inside it. Looking at it feel heartwarming and happy. I can even remember some of the moments in photos, despite my young age.


Something new (atarashii mono). Brand new chopsticks that has our name engraved on it, so cool~ Love it the colors because it contrasted one another. 



Something blue (aoi mono). I was surprised to see this blue box and even more suprised when I opened it because everything is wrapped in blue. It's tea! My second favorite drink after water. 


Sixpence in her shoe (kutsu ni rokupensu). This is the one item that blew me away when I opened it. I mean, look at it! It is, literally, a sixpence placed inside a metal-wire shoe that is supposed to give good luck to the bride and groom when worn inside the left shoe on their wedding day. Awh.. 


Within just weeks towards the wedding day, I am kinda prepping everything with my wedding organizer, which is my best friend for 19 years. Just asking for your wishes and prayers that everything will go smoothly until the wedding day. I'll share more things with you later on, until then, I'll see you later~
