so s u all know last weekend was like d busiest weekend eva..n mind u dis is jus a close family fren's wedding n i was like runnin ard to help wat i cud until i cudnt run anymore..lolz..i dun wanna imagine wen my bro's wedding comes.. =/
it all started from friday itself..classmates all decided to not go n declared our holiday a day earli..woke up ard 10ish..s usual catch my grey's anatomy on star world..den was jus lazying ard askin d "family" wat to get for freddie n decided we were gonna get him a wallet since his was tearing apart..so was msging n watchin tv until i decided to ask godma whether they needed help in church wit d flower arrgments..godma said she was in pavilion n dat aunti alice was aledi n church..so called aunti alice n she said if free go over to help..since mum aledi knew i was gonna b helping..i hung up d clothes,got ready n off to church wit sherie n jeremy..went there..flowers were flooding d lower part of d sanctuary..n all purple-ish..hehe..without wasting time..got down to doing d benches..
it took us almost 2 hours i think to finish d whole row of it..daym now i wish i had d pics to show u..it was so nice dat godma said she wanted to get married again n walked down dat isle..one of d sister said it was like d garden of eden..it was jus magnificant..d shades of color jus blended in so well..
after dat we helped out wit d table bouquets..park our butts on d floor n started folding leaves for d base of d bouquet..n d next thing u know it was 3.30 n we had to leave cos needed to collect d booklets for mary n head to jusco to get fred's wallet n after dat fetch my mum..so we left n it was rainin heavily..apparently kjg market was aledi flooded n we got stuck in d massive jam..took us 30 mins to move dat 200 metres...daym it..i was goin crazy..haha..n wen we finally reach d printing shop it was still rainin heavily..so ran in n out of d store without gettin d books wet..wen we took a copy to c..it was jus so nice..
so love d back cover..d sunset pics r jus realli awesome..how d sunlight burst in between both of them..
after dat..went to jusco n got fred his wallet..n rushed off to pick mum from serdang..
came bak to shower up n rest a bit n off again to church to help mum wit d altar flower arrangment..i did usual-mother mary and oil lamp..without plannin watsoeva, d arrangement turn out to b a heart shape pattern..lolz..i was kinda happy after seeing dat..u can say dat i was aledi stressed n tired at dat point..
after headed to manda's for reception practice..there was cough n flu ard..n it wasnt a good sign..we needed our voice for d big day..but neways din worry too much..jus drank more water n gulp down honey..
once prac was over..we changed n rushed to Jusco for Mamma Mia..boy dat show is worth watchin..tho i was dead tired..i cud still sing n move to those Abba songs..hehe..but it was sad to c such a low no of crowd..i guess not everyone appreciates music like we do..
after dat we headed home n suppose to sleep but i had my nails to do..n after an hour on it oni i slept..dat aso i woke up ard 5+ tossing n turning till 7+..when you tell me dat u love me was jus repeatin in my head over n over again like a broken tape recorder..finally gave up n woke up to shower n eat bkfs..maybe i was too excited la ahh..
tho i tot it was still earli..there was barely time for me to sleep bak..haha..after bkfs..i changed my top n get my hair tied up n make up done..d next thing u know its 9.30..n fred was suppose to come at 9.45..so changed into my skirt..n d ribbon s always takes a few times to b tied oni will it b perfect..(fussy me) went out n waited for my driver to arrive..hehe..he was late..=p
so neways reach church ar 15 mins earlier oni..did sound check n last minute practice..n it was showtime..haha..keith n allison sang a nice song(i cant rmbr d title) s d bride was walkin in..her dress was realli pretty..lacy prints n fine details..all went well..n wen it came to d exchanging vows..tears were shed..both melvyn n mellissa had tears rolling down..n there u can c aunti pat n me having tears in our eyes..haha..amazing how emotions can b so influential..
after the mass we received ang pau from aunti alice n uncle francis..how kind..den we headed to the tents at d parking lot for a lil luncheon..hardly ate cos it was jus too hot n din feel hungry..while we were at d foyer..suddenly we heard like ppl shouting n all..ran over n saw melvyn n his groomsmen doing d Haka dance..a Maori tribal dance to scare off their opponents..it was quite cool..melvyn turn red instantly..full of enthusiasm..after dat the bridal couple went off..
we hang ard till 1.30 n went to marks place to rehearse for one last time b4 we headed to d hotel..finished ard 3..got home..bathe, packed n load my stuff into d car n headed to d saloon to blow my hair..n mind u i did dis all wit d stupid heavy rain..after dat..going over to manda's place, the road was flooded wit water..it was up to d divider height ok..had to go pretty slow..den reach there, fred said manda's hse no electricity..oni her hse..it tripped or somethin.so everyone had to detour to my place..all haven bathe some more..so chaos la..had to blow d gals hair dry n den get myself ready cos i wasnt changed yet..oh n i almost forgot my shoes..pffftt..
left my hse at 5+ n reached marriot abt 6..quickly did sound check n all..den headed to d washroom n got our make up on n camwhored s always..big ass mirror..take advantage of it..thank god it din crack..=p ill post up d pics once i get them..manda cant upload cos her pc was blown off wen electricity tripped..so wait patiently k..
den while make up-ing..fred called us to go in bak to do soundcheck again..but we were less than half done..so jus finished up n find him..but d doors were aledi closed..n wen it opened abit, we did a quick one n guest walked in a few minutes after dat..
our que was after d speech n toasting..so once they toasted d first toast, we got ourselves prepared outside..said a lil prayer n warmed up our voices for the prayer..we were nervous to our stomach..n mind u it was freakin cold..i dunno y we decided not to take up our shawl during d first song..it wudve been a beta choice...=/ i was up there feelin kinda frozen..i dunno abt d rest..hehe..but thank god we sounded good enuf.. (video's can b found at fred's blog - freddieweeck.blogspot.com)
after dat there was the redo of d Haka dance..but dis time it was wit 20 uncles on stage wit Melvyn..lolz..it was kinda cool n funny at d same time..haha..after dat was our 2nd performance..
we were called up on stage abit too earli cos the bridal couple werent there n we wanted them to hear us..so we hang ard backstage n became backup singers for jude n edward..felt kinda outta place tho..cos we cudnt c d tiny wordings n we din realli know d songs..siighhzz..
so wen we decided to start singing, the couple walks in d side door.. =)
wen it was all over..he headed bak to our table n continued eating..despite d goin on n off stage, we manage to finish up most of our food..
after dat d dance floor was opened but i was jus too tired to move..i literally jus cudnt move anymore..so i jus stayed bak at d table n watch d gals bags..i din wanna b d spoil spot while they have fun on d dance floor..so shall not spoil d whole basket of apples..i even called mark jus to ask him to request to jude to play a bday song for freddie..lolz..dats how tired i was...
so after it was all over, i got up n walked up to fred n wished him..den we ended d nite wit a group pic wit d couple..
reached home almost 1+ n den died till i woke up for mass..was stoned..n for some reason d air con in church was extra cold..i was close to suffering from hipotermia..lolz..slept during fathers sermon..yes i know bad of me..but i cud barely open my eyes..my ears were still on..=p
after mass, many complimented on our singin at d reception..at least we know dat ppl act listened..haha..den headed for bkfs..n wen i reached home..crashed till 3..haha..woke up n got ready to go for vball..n gave fred a lil surprise after dat wit a cake..lolz..he had his face print on it..headed for choir practice..jus for some reason we cudnt stand "someone" tellin us wat to do n how to sing..annoyed d few of us..neways..after prac..we headed to hawker stall in sg long to jus spend d last few hours of freddie's bday..
d weekend was great but i think somehow it led me to feeling emo but d happy type..i dunno how dat can b..but ya..i jus wish things can continue being d way they are..astrologically it showed good signs..but we can neva predict wat d end results will b like..so shall jus hope for d best n jus live life..
