Meeting with Am Yap Joco

Just got back from my meeting with Am. And she's such a dear. :)

I'm nearly decided on booking her. But since it's almost like customary for brides to go to trial first before booking, I would have to wait for September before we sign her up. Hay im soooo excited!

HMUA Hunting

Have touched based with a prospective supplier. The last important supplier that I need to book to make this wedding happen. I'm meeting her this Friday. She sounded very nice over the phone and I hope that impression remains the same until my wedding day ;-)

Am Yap was a recommendation from a fellow w@wie, Teacher Louise. Out of all the HMUAs that I considered and quoted, Am was one of the few who quoted cheap but looked to be a quality pick. Quoting Louise, Am is a budding HMUA. Well, following her thought...I also would like to believe that budding artist should always be given a venue to prove her worth. I hope my TMU goes well so I can make up my mind on whether to book her or not. But my gut-feel tells me...its gonna be her :)

Will update soon! I'm excited to meet her this Friday.

Pre-cana seminar and meeting KJ

This whole month of July is the busiest month we've had since we officially got engaged. But this sort of brings me a feeling of relief because it tells me how determined we are to make this wedding a beautiful one despite the budget constraints and other problems that we've been having since we decided to push through with our church wedding.

Here;s my documentation of what has taken place over the weekend.

Saturday - we again head off to Tagaytay for our pre cana seminar. We were unfashionably late and had to take some 'beating' from our first speaker. Whew. We did apologize though. And she accepted it wholeheartedly. Moving on, the seminar was sort of an eye opener for a sense, we realized that there is still a lot of things to work out. Between me and Tibs. Between us and our families. But mainly, in our relationship we do have a long way to go in terms of dealing with our day-to-day interactions in a mature way. And I'm glad Tibs willingly listened and shared his thoughts in some of the discussions. It was a 'breakthrough' for my very very shy hanibants. :)

Sunday - we finally met with KJ. Our prospect photographer who was recommended by my dear friend Mich. KJ took photos of her wedding and I know he is passionate about what he does. Our only concern here is if he will fit our budget. And voila - he did! Now we're just waiting to sign the contract with him. He's really very very very nice. Up to now, I still can't believe he gave us that price for the package that we got! :)

So was a tiring but very, very fruitful weekend.

The 100-Day Countdown

Technically, it's not the start of our 100th day countdown because that day's 3 days past already. Since I was not able to mark that day here I'll just make a post-100 day comment :) (blabbering again, here i go...)

Saturday I was really exhausted from our divi trip. Day was scorching hot and I was all sweaty when we arrived in Anna's shop. We went thru the variety of designs for Tibs' barong since we decided to change the material to pure pina cloth. We thought, yeah, it's going to cost us but well this is a rare occassion for Tibs' why not go for the best...he he he. So there, we picked a design and Anna quoted the price.'s a loooot more expensive than my gown. But I told Tibs' to go ahead as he was kinda looking a me with that worried expression on his face. I know he really wanted that design. I was happy with my gown already....I just want him to be happy with his as well.

Anyways, the gown fitting was a bit uncomfortable at first. At first glance, Tibs blurted - "ang lapad mo sweet"...I myself could not believe I was that big. But when I got into the dress, I heaved a sigh of relief when I found out they just made it like 2 sizes larger than it was supposed to. But the designed turned out better than I expected. Although it was far from the look that I really wanted to achieve. But still, I was thanking God it did not turn out to be a disaster.

So there, done with my first fitting. But did not have pictures to show yet. Was not able to download it from tibs' phone. But will post it soon....

When birthdays turn sentimental

Shed a few tears awhile ago when I read the card Daddy sent for my bday.

It read:



to us, today s perhaps one of ur most significant bday bcos at least we cud still claim u to be ours. but the preservation of d human specie must not be broken hence im looking forward to a more significant event in ur life come october. im right here behind u. i love u pangga.

It made me realize for a moment that my family recognizes how important this event is to me. Although I know that when my dad sends me stuff like this, the reality it's just him telling me this and not him representing the whole family. For a moment, it made me feel good. The tears were actually tears of joy.

But then reality comes biting again. And the thought that my mom, my youngest sister and me are still not in good terms come rushing back. It's a very sad feeling. Something that I really do not wish to dwell on any longer.

But despite all of these, my bday was a happy one. I received tons of greetings as compared to several bdays in the past. It felt good to be remembered by friends especially good old friends from UP.

Today, I vow to let go of the bitterness. I will let time fix whatever issues exist at present. If time cannot handle it...I know love will not let this go unrepaired. Tibs and Auntie Jingjing are there to help me do that. And I thank God everyday I have people like them to help me get through all this.

To Mommy and Maoche, this may be something you can never and will never relate to. This could be something you think is just a whim of mine. But someday, I will understand. And time will come you will remember there were happy days shared with me. That there came a time you were the number one priority in my list. I will wait for you to remember.
