Kadazan Wedding... Yours truly #1

18th December 2010.

That was my 2nd wedding. So to speak, due to my marriage with someone part Kadazan.

BUT, there is one advantage this time: I get to see the Make Up session where previously, she was in a hotel, and I at my parents house.

All this was done in her family house in Putatan, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah and so is the simple ceremony.

So let's start shall we? The following photos was taken by a Photographer called Wendell.

Drawing your eyebrows...
Which eyelash do you want? Conservative? Extreme? Scary?
Putting the selected eyelash on.
Time to style the hair!
"You got a problem with me, bub?"
The final product. Pretty eh?
With Moi...
And Moi decided to be a Ah Pek for 1 minute...
Trying to teach me how to dance the Sumazau; a traditional Kadazan dance.
We're all dressed up!
Need I SAY anything else? :)
Yes, I've got a head gear!!!
Our 3 layer cake. The 1st layer is to be consumed on the day itself. 2nd layer is for the immediate family. 3rd layer? It goes into the fridge, and 1 year thereafter, to be consumed! Think of it my 1st year Anniversary Kadazan cake!
All of us in the immediate family, plus my auntie who decided to follow us to KK, sans her sister who was busy getting her make up done.
Our guest book.
All decked up.
And I've got an arch too!

More to follow...

Ode to Christchurch's Cathedral!

Having been to CHC, and visited it's famous cathedral, it's really sad to see what damage the earthquake has done on 22nd February 2011.

The below photo was taken from abc.co.au's news website. If you compared to the pictures below it that was taken by yours truly back in October 2010, you will see the difference.


It's like half of the tower has been loped off!


And so, this post is in memorial of the actual tower. I'm sure they will rebuild it... but it will never be the same... again.


Dear Christchurch, you have survived earthquakes. You will survive this one and rebuild... to become better and stronger.

And let us come back and visit you again! :)

Peekaboo!

This is a little upcoming preview of what the missus has been up to lately. Of course it's a cross stitch! :)

Right. 2 hearts. 2 doves... what else?

A ring...

The dove in more clarity.
Is that all??? Am afraid so. For now... :P

The End.

Avillion @ PD - 2nd Round visit!

Does this look familiar??? It does? Yup. We are back @ Avillion PD. We loved it so much, that we decided we would love a revisit. So, he...
