I love going to weddings!
My grand-uncle's daughter is getting married this saturday and I seriously can't wait to go.
Hehe. Like wth lah. It's not like I'm even her or her close family member right, why should I be so excited?
BUT I AM.
(Like that makes a perfect excuse)
So anyway. I love weddings for all their glitz and glamour, gorgeous details, and that wonderful romantic lovey-dovey atmosphere! Okay, so I confess I am a very hopeless romantic. Sigh. *gives sad whimpering look* I adore anything romantic and emotional.
I am emotional. Quite emotional, really. If you peel off my outer onion layers.
I also can't wait to wear my dress this weekend! It's a lovely white dress which I bought long ago at a sale at BYSI and I have not gotten the chance to wear it yet. You know, its like one of the occasions when you walk past a sale at this major clothing brand, and you think, "Wah... they're clothes always so expensive one leh. But now got sale leh! Should I buy should I buy?"
And then you wonder inside, just to take a look. Just for a little while.
And then, BHAM!!! You're hit with it.
I call it the Uncontrollable Sales Syndrome. Suddenly, it's as though Mr Hyde has taken over you, you make unjustified purchases, saying stuff like, "Oh, this dress, I wouldn't wear it usually, but you know... It's for one of those special occasions!"
And then the special occasion never comes and the dress sits at the bottom of your closet, among your other 'special buys', collecting mould and basically just rotting.
So anyway, I am really glad that I got the chance to wear this white dress before it actually rots!
Trust me, dresses really grow mouldy. Especially white ones. Like this white flower-girl dress which I wore about 6 years ago for my aunt's wedding and left it alone after that, the next thing I knew when I opened my wardrobe was that it was a ghastly sickly shade of yellow. There were also brown moss like stuff growing on it. (Yes, I know it sounds really sick but yeah)
I also have lots of baking to do this whole week!
I love baking. This week is wonderful and quite enjoyable really, cos I can just sit at home and browse through recipes online and wonder if I have to make a trip down to Phoon Huat again (which I actually love and always find excuses for) and then finally BAKE!
Omg I must be mad.
But then again my family and Henry and his family has something nice to eat yeah.
I think I shall just continue making a new pastry/cake every week. Quite interesting. Actually, I've made a lot but I just did not take pictures and bother to post them up because they were gone within a matter of... 2 or 3 days?
Anyway, this week it's apple strudel!
Will post the pictures up soon if I have the heart.
Until then, je'taime!
PS: All the best to my J2 friends doing A levels now. Just wanna let you all know that you have been on my mind and I have been praying for you all. Especially Jasmine and Kelly. I love you! You can do it, I promise! Just strive hard for the remaining few weeks!
