hey sexy girl from kuala-lala lumpur

I know this song is overplayed on the radio and my SS2 pasar malam but I still love it. Liked it the first time they aired it on Fly fm and lovin' it even more now. Told everyone to look this song up and was thoroughly amazed to learn that the sexy girl from Kuala-lala Lumpur is actually our very own buatan Malaysia: Mizz Nina!! I had it on rerun a month before the wedding during my morning drives to work when tensions ran high and my stress-eczema was at it's worst.

Mizz Nina, I do hope you make it big honeybunch :)

random random iv

I love getting gifts! Sophiekins brought back gifts from my very good friend Miss WongWong in London. The Cath Kidston drawer liners are for my very belated graduation and a diffuser gift set from The White Company for the wedding. My living room now smells of cassis, classic blackberry and cedar... nice!

Sophiekins also brought home Lola's cupcakes which are divine! They look smushed up 'cos she fell down during her flight transit *giggle* and the cupcakes toppled over. My favourite is the Red Velvet. It was crazy yum despite being 3-days old :)

Before leaving for Phuket for our mini-moon, we gathered plastic bottles (from wedding-eve makan-makan) and cartons (from wedding gifts) for recycling.

The entire car filled with rubbish only came to RM1.70! WTF... well I guess I should just be contented that we're helping the environment *shrugs*

Do your it for the environment by recycling at IKANO Recycling Centre

Does anybody know where to recycle glass in PJ?? Holler out at the comments yáll! Mama has a bucketful of wine glasses waiting to be reused..!

Spotted a rainbow and an Alexander's Band (secondary bow) 2 days before the wedding when we got stuck in jam post-shower after picking up the wedding dress from the atelier. This must be a good omen (I hope)!

Brought the Americans out for a feast of crabs. They were here for the wedding.

Oooh doesn't Tiffany blue boxes get us all tingly inside? :)

That being said, doesn't Chanel too?

Guy's family gave me a budget for tea-ceremony jewellery shopping to my utter merriment. I got myself a Tiffany silver necklace and Chanel enamel earrings. I seriously believe in this system rather than them buying me gold stuff that I dislike.

When Sophiekins, Mmmy and I went over to 1Utama to get some cotton PJs from La Senza we found lovely paper sculptures adorning the lobby...

Turns out they're installations by Micky Tan for the Antalis Paper Fantasy exhibition. Tongue in Chic did a review on the event here.

Sophiekins and I went to Senjyu Sushi to have lunch since it claims to be the 'first premium kaiten or conveyor belt sushi restaurant in Malaysia'. Well we're great roe fans so we basically ordered everything on the menu that has roe on it!

Personally I find their sushi to be OK only-lah. It isn't exactly smashing stuff. Erk.

This proved to be the best item on the menu: mango ikura sushi. Now this one's yumsters.

the jacques townhouse

Since we're drifting about the 'Alice in Wonderland' mood, here's a treasure!!

Oh how I wish I was a Londoner...

Thank goodness for Susie of Style Bubble or I would not have known of this magical heaven called The Jacques Townhouse which, according to Susie, is London's first pop-up hotel that doubles up as an evening girly retreat with the most insane decor! This supposedly called pop-up hotel-cum-beauty parlour "soirée" venue, is a brainchild of hotelier David Carter who teamed up with Jacques Cider and closely oversaw this with Sophie Ellis Bextor (everyone sing: It's Murder on a Dancefloor...)! Whoah, like, whoah.

Regrettably, for me at least, this will not be a permanent fantasy as it will close its dreamscape doors permanently after early August *tear*

Step into the happiest place on earth :)

There is a Benefit Powder Room and Lash Couture bar where the girls get made-up...

... with a vintage dress-up box. Oooh...!

That's Susie Bubble over there on the left!

This is my favourite pose shot.

The concierge hands out a tea-towel map and a key to the guests. How delightful!

The entrance:

A Jacques Cider bar of course. What's a soiree without some cocktails?

All sweets and treats by Vintage Patisserie.. glee!

According to Susie, the set design is done by Cordelia Weston who is the team's creative designer. She did up the cake props and tulle pom poms (my favourite!!) on the set. I heart Cordelia...
