i need to lose weight.

I do realize that I pretty much suck at blogging about my wedding preparations.
It’s not that I do not have the time at all, it’s just that most of the time I’m just not in the mood. And documenting the thousands of things that are undone will just get me all worked up. 🙁

Oh well, as mentioned in previous post, my wedding cards have been picked up. Thanks to Kanda Dinda.
It took me
quite awhile to get over the fact that there is a (stupid) flaw in every one of them. *nangis*
Thank you to the sister who kind heartedly helped me edit her phone number. 🙁

She also helped with the folding and is responsible for the writing the names in the card. What would I do without her ? 🙂
I have gathered quite a number of addresses and will be posting them all out within this week. I will be needing my guests to RSVP, so that I can do a head count or an estimation on how many people will be attending.
Then I can know whether I will need to add more food.
A few have not replied, and I have quite a number of cards that I have planned to pass by hand. Now I’m having second thoughts as I do not know when I will have the chance to do so !

Hantaran items for him have all been bought.
I have not gotten my perfume, cloth and hijab though.
I need to find time to go get them and pass them to Mr Sunshine !

Mr Sunshine will be going back this week for Aidiladha, and is planning to get his Baju Melayu for nikah tailored. Hope that goes well.

I am looking for shoes to go with my nikah Baju Kurung. A simple one would do, because I’d be wearing it on the way to the mosque and back only.
It should be something that I can still use after the wedding.

Something like this maybe ? From here.

I am depending the sister to get the house and rooms to look a bit decent.
Mr Sunshine and I have yet to go scouting for a bed set.
I have been contemplating, since we’re both in Terengganu, and will be staying here for quite some time after we get married, it would be a waste of money to get two bed sets.
It’s sort of confirmed that we’re a getting a complete bed set for the quarters here.
And I might get only a bed for Gombak as Mummy’s room already has a cupboard, dressing table and a bedside table.
The only problem is that it would be difficult to find a bed that would match the current furniture in Mummy’s room.

ONE AND A HALF MONTH to go. InshaAllah.
I have been gaining weight like nobody’s business. Some of my baju kurung are ill-fitting for me already.
It’s a bit depressing to see how I have let myself go. 🙁
But I have started exercising like I used to, and hopefully I’ll manage tone up in time before my dress fitting session. And my best friend, Diana’s wedding.
Which is about two weeks away. Fat hopes eh ?
At least tone up a bit lah, please. 🙁
I HAVE ABOUT 10 LBS TO LOSE ! But I’m thinking that’s impossible (and unhealthy) to achieve in such a short span of time.
Oh this is so depressing.

It has been raining for a few days straight here in Terengganu, and as some of you observant ones out there might already know, it has already flooded in a few areas here. Including where I am now.
I woke up yesterday to the phone ring of my colleague from telling me that she was unable come to work as the roads to the hospital were blocked. Soon, I learned that only two pharmacists including me who could be at the hospital, and the both of us stay at the quarters.
The hospital and my quarters area are not affected as we’re situated on high land, but both roads just after the hospital, leading to Kuala Terengganu and Kuala Berang town respectively, have been closed due to the water rise.
We’re literally stuck in the middle with limited access to food supply (and McDonald’s !). When I say limited, it’s because as at now, only huge lorries, or tractors can go through the water.
I have to admit, I am a bit of a jakun about this whole flood scenario.
I know floods happen in KL too, but from where I was growing up I have never actually been affected by anything like this.
I am a bit excited yet scared and sad at the same time. Gila kot ?
Excited by this new experience, and being able to learn how to deal with it.
Scared that it will get worse.
And sad that Mr Sunshine and I cannot meet each other. Worse still, I MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO GO HOME THIS AIDILADHA if this goes on or gets bad.
A few snapshots the jakun side of me took yesterday evening. Pleas pardon the bad quality photos from my phone.
Here are photos of my poor tyre which I damaged two weekends ago. 🙁
But I learned how to change a tyre so it’s all good. Thank you Mr Sunshine. 🙂
Oh yeah, I moved into my quarters last week, or was it last two weeks ?

I am alone every single night in this big (leaking) place I should learn to call home.

I have no life here in Kuala Berang.
I sleep, go to work, come back from work and exercise (cewah, baru dua hari sahaja actually !), go online, and watch OTH/DVDs. And, REPEAT.
Work is good, Alhamdulillah.
I have not been able to say that AT ALL for the past year, eh ?
I am living on instant noodles right now.
I have a tin of tuna and a tin of baked beans with cheese in my kitchen too.
Saving them for when I get tired of Maggi/Mamee/Cintan.

picked up my cards, but…

I have my wedding cards with me now.
I am not too happy about it because I stupidly just realized the mistake in the sister’s mobile phone number. 012 is written instead of 017.
How could I have missed that out ?!
I have no one else to blame but me.
