RIP QZ 8501

Words can't really describe how awful and terrible I'm feeling after hearing and seeing the news regarding AirAsia QZ8501. Rest in peace to all the lives lost. I cannot imagine what the families and their loved ones are going through but i can only hope that they are receiving the support they need. 

Travel safe all and a very happy new year in advance.

Wedding Invites & Favors

I finally I am able to share with you my wedding card and wedding favors. My card was done from India with the help of my cousins. Honestly without them, I wouldn't have executed something like this. The cards here in Thailand are really overpriced. Specially with the complex Indian invitation that requires a 100 pages as there are a million things to be mentioned. It was impossible to get a card done less than 200 baht per card. So getting it done in India was like a half price. And the wedding favor that I distributed with the card was half a kg of prunes. This was for 160 Baht per box and with the cover must have costed 25 Baht. Just love how it all came out. I've started to distribute the cards now but still a lot more left to be sent out.

Solution to Wedding Stress

So the other day I grumbling of how stressed I was right. I wasn't feeling right about my outfit and blah blah. So I decided to do a dry run of the whole thing. I hired a photographer, my actual day make up artist as well as the hair dresser. Just to see who the whole look will come out, specially with the make up and what hair style to wear that day. The photo shoot was done on Saturday and now I'm feeling much better. Although not as I expected, but I'm feeling a little complete. I'm glad I did it.  

Today I received the draft pictures from the shoot, I'm feeling more comfortable and much more relaxed. It was just no use for me to be stressed out. There's always a way out in every difficult situation you face. Very important that you identify the problem and find out a solution for it.

Wedding S-T-R-E-S-S

I think I might be going through a post wedding depression. I think I'm too stressed out planning my wedding that it all turn blue. It probably wasn't evident from my blogging and it didn't effect my job, but in my downtime I was lonely, pessimistic and just plain sad.  They say, when we have many changes in out lives our chemical balance can get off, and whether that's true or not, that's what I'm feeling. I just don't want to do anything right now. It's just not working out. From the dress, decor and the rest, nothing is ready.. I'm not ready either..

Zalora Online Shopping

Technically I didn't buy anything on Black Friday. Not like there is any custom here. But I did on cyber Monday on It is a Thai online shopping site. I cam across it through a publicist of zalora. There was this huge sale on Monday, and top of you subscribe to their mail you get additional 250 Baht off. I was in love with this pair of Hidden Wedge high cut shoe. And it was for 1,199 Baht. The deal was great and they had payment on delivery. I bought it and it was delivered to be today. I made the payment to the delivery guy at 940 Baht and the whole process was complete.

Online shopping feels like a surprise present comes to you even thought you pay for it yourself. :)

The service is super quick, and the size of the shoe runs to its original size. So there was no problem with that. The fitting was perfect. Also a bonus for me, the shoe itself is super light.The only thing that I didn't like was the white sole of the shoe was slightly dirty. I wish they could have checked it before.

This website has a lot of items to choose from being it girl, boy or babies. It also has a ery good return policy which you rarely see it in Thailand. I have added some photo of the wedges.

December Wedding Updates - Less than 50 days left

Miss me much?

Work kept me working far too many hours, on far too many days. The whole November was crazy for me in terms of work. Any-how, let's keep the work talk aside and get back to business - wedding planning updates! this is how are things have progressed:
  • Invites
With the help from Swati & Richa (my sisters), my card is ready, shipped to Bangkok and now ready to be distributed.I love it. It came out beautiful.
  • Trousseau
Main functions outfit are done, it should be arriving in 1-2 weeks times. I just have the accessories left. For ring ceremony, I  have to finalize the earrings that I would be wearing. The problem with this is that, the set the boy side is giving doesn't really match as we bought the set before the outfit, it was because lack of time. So we are still figuring out what we do with it. For mehendi, I'm thinking of fresh flower accessories, this will be done few days before the wedding. For the wedding dress, the main set is done, pending is the head piece and haar.
  • Honeymoon
Our ticket has been done. I guess we are sorted on this. Having my brother in law taking care of this, is a peace of mind. Can blindly trust his choice and options. So this can be ticked off as well. I just need to get winter sorted immediately.
  • Pending items
Thats'all for now. Pending things include: start dance practices for the sangeet (which I'm most excited about, have to think of a song choice), buy jewellery for the outfits, decide on DJ, finalize the decor for the functions... a few from the never ending list. Am I missing anything?
