DIY – Photo Album for engagement shoots

leave a comment »

We have just finished making our own engagment photo album (book 1) at Blurb.

In this wedding preparation process, i found the magic of internet and it is very powerful :

1.  bought my bridesmaid invitation card from etsy (many handmade stuff there and in fact, my first time to buy from internet!)

2.  found my engagement photographer Max Wanger on internet (thanks to a cup of jo , we flied all the way to USA after seeing her stunning shoots.)

3. found blurb – online booking making company ( heard it from the famous wedding blogger Mrs Cocoa Bean, i guess ALL bride-to-be must have read her blog. She’s doing real good in making DIY stuff and makes her wedding a very warm and sweet one. AND….must say, she’s a very good writer as well.)

AND my computer skills + knowledge improved a bit from this process too 😛

Honeymoon @ Maldives

with 4 comments

Honeymoon location is fixed (FINALLY) – MALDIVES + SINGAPORE,

We have been struggling amongst Australia (due to cheap air tickets and has relatives in Sydney) and Maldives, and finally Maldives won mainly because…

NO NEED TO PLAN THE ITINERY!! how lazy am i…

But afterall, we both want a more relaxing holiday and i guess it would be hard for me to find an excuse to stay in the luxurious water bungalow other than this special occasion!!

This is the IN OCEAN VILLA, newly opened in July 2009 @ Angsana, Velavaru

With its own swimming pool above the sea…cool, but the pavillion deck (at right hand corner, i want it..)  seems only available in the premium in ocean villa.

In Ocean Villa 1

The exterior  view of the villa – each 2 storey villa comes with an outdoor desk, own infinity pool, a bedroom with living area and plunge pool.

In Ocean villa

This hotel needs to take a 40 min seaplane from Male, since the flights from HK usually arrives late at night, usually need to stay in the town area (which the hotel quality is i guess not so nice..) Luckily there is another Angsana Ihuru which can be reached by speedboat in 20 min.

There are really lots of good choices when you come to Maldives, but just that the prices are real expensive too.  Let me know if you need some names..
