Back from Malaysia!



Just back from my trip to Malaysia and let's just say it was not really a holidaying trip at all! I was on the plane most of the time. I hate aeroplane food now!

Firstly, I went to KL to pick up my dress from Designer Bridal Room. They have beautiful dresses and everytime I'm there I can't help but to take a look at the dresses hanging all around the shop- even though I already picked one. It's not a good idea to do that since I might regret my purchase! I higly recommend this place if you don't mind spending a lil bit more to get a beautiful designer dress. Once you see this place, every other bridal store will not compare! But yes, it is pricey but they give very good service- you will feel like a princess!

I am very happy with my dress and it is finally here with me!! (Hanging in the spare room!) I haven't tried it on with my veil yet- still thinking about what hairstyle to do but it will definitely be an updo:)

Then it was back onto the plane again to go to Sabah...the wedding destination.  It was a whole day just wedding planning with the wedding planner- Faith Foo. Very nice lady and I have every faith in her to make my wedding a dream come true! ahah so corny I know :P

Had our banquet food tasting (pics below)...very disappointed but I have been warned that if you want a hotel venue, don't expect too much from the food. Since I had no choice for such a big wedding I guess it will have to do:)



We stayed at Shangri La Tanjung Aru Resort.....we had a nice welcome drink and cool wet towels.....We needed it after a long day of flying. Not really loving the bed sheets! ewww!




Here is Kenny lugging all our bomboniere boxes. We had three of these boxes to carry to Sabah for our wedding. I have no idea what to put inside the boxes yet!



And we finally get to see our engagement photo abum! I was so excited (as you can see) and couldnt wait to open it with my Michael Jackson gloves! ahaha





Unfortunately there was a defect on the glass of the album and they had to send it back to Italy! So I couldn't bring it home with me just yet :( But Louis Pang and Co. did a very fine job. Can't wait to see what they come up with on the wedding day!

So it was back to KL again and we had Bakuteh- very famous in KL and it's a must visit! I love the tea too:)



Yummy!



After a whole day shopping at the Pavillion me and Kenny were "pooped" out! So we stopped by Godiva and tried their Dark Hot Chocolate. It was very energising! Tasty but a bit a thick to drink! See the effect it had on Kenny!






Ok onto my purchases! I didn't get much this time- I was hoping to get the whole day to myself without Kenny lugging behind me but he had nothing else better to do so yeah....too bad for me. I couldn't really splurge- his annoying question before every purchase is "Do you really need that?"...... Of course I don't!!!! I just want it! hehe

So I had to make do with some quick purchases when he goes on his toilet breaks!

I managed to sneak this purchase- an eyeshadow palette from Sasa which I have been dying to get! Some of you may know of this product- it's been around for while now but these things are hard to get in Australia. Yay! I finally got one!



I love the colours- you can use every single one of them and it's great for travelling too!



I also splurged a bit at Bobbi Brown- got myself three more gel liners in Cobalt Ink, Bronze Shimmer & Caviar. I can't wait to use them:) Also got their creamy concealer and the corrector. Not sure if I should have bought the corrector- it's an extra step in the routine for under the eyes.....anyone used this before??

If the dress is the one in the 1st pic, OMG! Soo pretty! I congratulate you on your wedding, I'm not sure if I actually knew about it =P
The trip looks like so much fun, even though, as you say, it was probably super tiring. Oh well, at least you got a lot of things done (and bought some hot-ass makeup in the process!)

Chenni said...

That's so exciting. Can't wait to see your wedding photos. I have used the BB corrector. I like it, but I don't always use it because like you said, it's an extra step. It does make a difference though.

DonDon said...

and lawl at you sneaking purchases during your fiance's toilet breaks! AHAH! Sneaky!

rene said...

heye. I am using Bobbi Brown's corrector. Yea. U put this before the concealer. Well...U do not really need this unless u have very bad circles like me! It's suppose to hide my severe dark circles but maybe I got the wrong shade? I quite like it nevertheless, compared to only using a concealer. But I am not using it with their concealer. $$$ pricey!

funkiimonkee said...

DonDon: Yeah, that was just a pic of the fitting room at Designer Bridal Room:) I wish I could afford such an extravagant dress like the one in the pic!

Rene: I am liking the corrector too and the concealer is fab- very creamy and doesn't cake around my nose area or under the eyes.
