Mum & Julia meets up every now and then for lunch to catch up… I’m now part of the group! he he  A new CHIN additional…  🙂

Julia was the one who came up with the idea of dining at the C resto.  It’s a revolving restaurant situated on the 33rd floor of St.Martin’s Terrace.  It was definitely a spectacular view!  Good view, good company, good food!!!  What more can you ask for?  😛

Dirt bike riding June 12, 2008

Filed under: Blogroll — stayfunny @ 4:14 am

Max used to go dirt bike riding with his friends quite a bit a few years back… that’s before he became obsessed with surfing.  Well, that might be exaggerating it a bit… anyway, now, he only goes dirt bike riding every once in a while.  Last weekend, I was able to try it for the first time.  Not on my own though… but I was quite an enthusiastic passenger.  ha ha

It was a good experience.  Riding in the woods… with nobody else except you and your friends.  The serene, quiet beauty that surrounds you is something else.

     

 

The Scene is Set June 5, 2008

Filed under: Blogroll — stayfunny @ 5:37 am

Both Max & I are really excited and looking forward to our wedding day.  His mum is also really excited… she even brought me out one day to look for dresses and when we found THE DRESS, she bought it for me.  🙂  And I really feel welcome-d to the family… I couldn’t have asked for a better mum-in-law.

As mentioned in my previous entry, the registry wedding is to be a small and simple event with only Max’s family present and maybe a few friends… but IT IS developing into a much bigger event.

At first, the idea is to have the registry wedding first, and then apply for our spousal visa, and then plan for a church wedding in Manila.  But, the truth is, having a church wedding is really not that important for me.  True, I get to be a princess for one day but the way I think is that the real reason people do a grand wedding is basically, to show off.

One evening, an idea hit me!  I thought, instead of spending heaps of money for a grand wedding, why not divert the funds to paying an all expense paid holiday trip for my whole family instead and get them here?  What a FANTASTIC idea!  I couldn’t sleep that night.  I was simply too excited!  🙂  Both my mom and Max were just concerned whether it’s really ok that I don’t get to wear a WHITE dress and walk down the aisle.

So… with that, it seems that the event on July 11 will be THE DAY already.  More considerations to make about getting a good photog, make-up, etc etc.

Any recommendations?  🙂

 

Weekend at York

Filed under: Blogroll — stayfunny @ 4:33 am

Spent the weekend at York with my bub & future mother-in-law.  🙂  York is apparently WA’s oldest inland town.  It’s a nice little town.

     

We lodged at the Settler’s house… quite something else… it’s an old old place with old paintings hanging inside the rooms which made you feel like you’ve been transported back in time.  🙂  There’s even a fireplace in the main dining area.  And there’s talk of ghosts there.  It’s a shame I didn’t get to see it though… 😛

     

We also had barbecue and fire in the bush… I enjoyed it immensely.  After all, it’s very seldom that I get to play with fire.  😛
