Kasalan on Feb 2

Naisip ko lang... Sa Saturday na pala ang church wedding ko. Meron lang akong 3 wishes regarding the wedding na yun...
1. Sana hindi umulan
2. Sana walang masamang mangyari like any kind of accident
3. Sana mag enjoy ang guests
Ay may pang apat pa pala... Sana walang makalimutan like baka maiwan yung wedding ring! hahaha! Simple lang naman wish ko... Wala naman kasi ako talagang dream wedding. Mga coordinators ko nga walang mapiga sakin pag tinatanong nila kung anu daw ba idea ko sa wedding ko, anu daw gs2 ko theme... panu daw ang sequence ng programs... etc. etc. Lagi na lang akong si "bahala na kayu".. hehehe! Imagine, pati yung wedding band ko tinatanong ako kung may request songs daw ba ko... sabi ko lang sa kanya... "anu ba masa-suggest mo?"... hahaha! pathetic no! My girlfriends find it weird... Uncommon daw sa isang babae ang walang dream wedding. Yung iba nga bata pa lang nakalatag na lahat ng details ng kasal nila.. Kulang na lang groom.. Hehehe! Napapaisip tuloy ako, abnormal ba ko?! Hehehe! Sa totoo lang, kung nde lang ako Catholic at nde lang expected ng families namin ang church wedding, okay na sakin yung garden wedding namin e.. Masaya na ko dun... Kasal din naman yun e... Kaya lang nde yun honored by Catholic church.

Ang hirap pala ikasal, lalo na sa mga OC na katulad ko... Not to mention the gastos! OC ako pag dating sa documents, dapat kumpleto chaka naka latag na lahat... Like guest list, games, reception layout, etc. etc. Nung una, wala ako idea sa ganyan... Tapos nung naka usap ko coordinator ko, nalaman ko lahat ng dapat ko prepare!!! Grabe ang dami! Yung requirements pa lang ng simbahan malulunod ka na. Hehehe! Bukas pa lang ako mag papa kumpil. Siguro kung wala akong church wedding, nde na tlaga ko makukumpilan all my life. Kaya lang wish ko na lang tlaga, mag enjoy yung mga guests namin at nde umulan. Naku! Ang lamig lamig pa man din daw ngaun sa tagaytay. Baka pulmunyahin ang guests ko... Hehe! Kung may nakakabasa man nito at a-attend ka, be ready na lang sa weather sa tagaytay... Hahaha!

Wala man akong dream wedding, meron naman akong dream groom at reality na yung dream na yun.. At syempre, meron din akong dream marriage... Naisip ko lang after writing all these, nde pala totoong wala akong dream wedding, meron pala... ang dream wedding ko is yung wedding na mag eenjoy at magiging masaya ang mga guests... Hmmm... tama! yun ang dream wedding ko! Pag masaya ang wedding at enjoy ang guests, siguro dun ko masasabi na "it's all worth it"...

* * *

Lord, sana po maging masaya at walang maging problema sa wedding namin ni Jay-ar. Please let it shine on that day!

To all the single ladies out there...

God has message for you...

No man will ever claim you unless he claims you from me. I have reserved a man for you, who has my heart and loves me even more than he will you. I won't give you unless he asks you from me.

He's asleep, don't wake him, he's busy for me and my kingdom. Soon you will know him, but I have the perfect time.

You are my princess, my daughter. Let no prince claim you unless he asks you from my hand. For I am your Father, the King of Kings.

You, my princess are worth waiting for.

"I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am." -John 14:3

Someday your Prince will come.

New Year Celebration

Ola 2008! Jay-ar and I celebrated New Year here in Malaysia with other pinoys and our condo unit was where the celebration was held. It was my first time spending New Year's eve here and away from my beloved family. As for Jay-ar, ever since he started working here.. err that would be almost 3 years already, he stopped experiencing welcoming New Year in the Philippines. I guess that's one of the boos when you are working as an IT consultant in banking industry. Year-end is sssooo important for them that everyone should be on standby for any errors that may be encountered during year-end batch process. Hehehe!

Although I admit that I still prefer welcoming 2008 in the Philippines with families and friends, our New Year celebration here was not bad. As you can see in the pictures below, our celebration was a feast. We had spaghetti, kare-kare, shrimps, tacos, fish, grilled porkchop, sopas and our contribution, hotdog on stick and ham. Hehehe! And yeah, we had red wine and lotsa lotsa vodka.

It was a good thing that our company let us leave the office @ 3pm [Jay-ar’s company let them leave by 1 pm] last Monday [Dec 31] because most of the roads were blocked already due to preparations for New Year’s countdown in different places here in KL. And as you can see in the video below, our condo was just about the right place to celebrate because we have a nice view of the fireworks. Just right after the two clock hands reached the number 12, we saw beautiful fireworks everywhere from our window then we started to cheer, eat, sing and drink. We ended the party around 4 in the morning.

More pictures here.

Notice the fireworks in Petronas, it can only reach half of the towers. Hehehe!

Coming up is my super duper overdue post regarding my Philippine vacation and Christmas celebration. Will update soooonnn...

I only have one New Year’s resolution for this year, hmm… I think it’s more like a wish or a prayer… I need and wish to be more patient this year… This was my New Year’s resolution for 2007 as well but sadly, I wasn’t able to keep it. I hope I will do better this year. Hehehe!

I don’t know why but I have this feeling that 2008 will be a great year for me. For one, I am starting the year right by having this mini Asian tour with my family. Hehe.

In what I believe
Or lose faith in my dreams
Cause there’s a light in me
That shines brightly
They can try
But they can’t take that away from me
From me
