The night after the wedding my sister decided to hold her 21st so that all the relatives could attend. We chose to hold it in an Australian restaurant. She received tonnes of thoughtful presents too so overall I think she was extremely happy that night.
"Sabo-ing" the Groom as he attempts to collect the Bride
All 8 bridesmaids got up at 5am to do self makeup and hairdos. We're all good to go (and apparently so is the Bride's mother). This is us ready and waiting at the Bride's house.
Sabo-ing the Groom is a Singapore wedding custom where the bridesmaids are referred to as 'sisters' and the groomsmen are referred to as 'brothers'. For us, we asked for ang pows (red packets containing cash) before allowing the Groom to enter the house. It took us 3 ang pows before we let them in. This is us crowding around the door and our first ang pow.
After making the Groom go broke we played nice and let him in.
Only to tell his 'brothers' that they had to do push ups with the Groom on their backs.
Then we had a little questionaire and for every incorrect answer they had to consume some horrible concoction of ours. In the picture, they had to eat warheads and drink lemon juice.
We gave them some time to rest their stomachs before their little dance workout where they danced to 'Nobody' by Wonder Girls =)
Just when he thought he was at her room door we told he to sing out his love for her at the top of his lungs. He chose to sing 'and I will always love you'. Even so, we told him it wasn't loud enough so his backup singers, the brothers, had to join in.
Then he opened her room door and found it wasn't his bride waiting for him! My sister was acting as the replacement bride. We asked for one last ang pow and then we led him to her brother's room where the real Bride was waiting. This is the two of them together after all the torture and pain.

The couple under the symbolic red umbrella. I don't know what it symbolises but I'd assume something like wealth, health and prosperity - probably.
Hurrah! I'm done with exams (for this semester)!! I don't know how I went but I'm really happy now that they're over :) :) :)
I've been really excited about going overseas and all so I've been packing my bags non stop and trying to cut down on things so that I may travel as light as possible then come back with my bags filled to the brim!
Turns out I'll have to sew a few travel bags before I leave though - for things like hair accessories etc. I've stitched up my everyday-silver-bag so that I can still use it for a little longer but I still need to alter a few of my dresses then I can pack them too!
I've pretty much cleaned up my room and I've leaving in just 2 days! I really am very excited! - OMG the wedding is in 11 days... now I'm even more excited!! (haha)
Anyways, if I find my travel checklist, I'll upload it because it's really useful and I could really do with it right about now.
Hey guys, notice the lack of posts recently? That's because it was the end of semester so I had a lot of things due. Now I have exams coming up so I probably won't be updating for the next 2 to 3 weeks.
Hey everyone. I've drawn so Talisman Online fan art based on my character :) Sure, I haven't played it since like February but I will play again after exams! Anyways, I've tried uploading it to the Talisman Online Fan Art section but I can't seem to? I'll try again later. This is what it looks like:
First of all, a big THANK YOU to everyone who wished me Happy Birthday, gave me presents and made my day spectacular!
No, I didn't go clubbing and I didn't drink alcohol either =P
Today was a really good for golfing. I played in the Junior Girls Matchplay (used to be Pennants 3 years ago) and today it was held at the Vines! That's the place in WA that held the Johnny Walker event last year.
I played in the foursomes for the blue team and we ended up playing the full 18 holes! The game was rather evenly matched. After 9 holes we were on all square. My partner and I ended up with +2 ie we won against our opponents!
I wish we didn't have to drive to Swan Valley for that game though. It's so far, my whole day is gone because it takes an hour to drive there and another to drive back, around 4 or 5 hours for the game and an hour for the pre-game stuff. I left the house at 10:30 am and only got back at 6:30 pm.
Also, I'm severely out of practice so now I'm sore all over, I should have done more stretches! ~Ow!
I've just turned 18! I'm now 'legal' ... apparently!
It also means that I have to do the compulsory voting also but the main thing is that I can get into pubs and clubs now and no one can complain. I probably won't be exercising my legal rights much anyways but if I want to, now I can.
Cake and presents are always good too. I can't wait. If you're close to me - you'd know that I love presents!
For mother's day, mum and dad left the house for a game of golf. Us kids did tonnes of housework such as each of us tidying our own rooms, vacuuming the entire house, doing the laundry, ironing and folding the clothes. Mum was so pleased when she came home. Then we surprised her again by giving her a present - good quality pyjamas set and a scarf.
Last night I watched How to train your Dragon. It is such an awesomely cute movie! I recommend everyone to go watch it if you haven't done so already.
For those of you who want to know how to tame your dragon but can't be bothered watching the movie to find out, I've written some guidelines on how to do so in just 10 not-so-simple steps:
Step 1 - Create a shooting device that will entrap your chosen dragon. Shoot it.
Step 2 - Locate where your dragon has crash landed. Bring a knife with you.
Step 3 - Attempt to kill said dragon but fail miserably (it's just too cute =3).
Step 4 - Use the knife to free the dragon from your trap (the one you shot at it in Step 1).
Step 5 - The dragon flees away so spend a few days trying to find its hideout.
Step 6 - Stay on high ground and drop a pencil (or a rock) into the water below. This will alert your dragon of your presence. If your entrapment device is fluky then the dragon's tail may be damaged thus said dragon will be unable to fly. Think: aerodynamics.
Step 7 - Feed your dragon. Your dragon is now down and cannot get hold of its own food. Also, giving the dragon food means it will like you more. Hurrah, you're a food source for the dragon =P. Warning: dragons like chicken and fish but they do not like eel. Also, try smiling at the dragon. Maybe it will smile back.
Step 8 - Spend time doing nothing with the dragon in the dragon's hideout but keep your distance. You may try drawing in the sand with a stick. Who knows? You may get a lovely surprise.
Step 9 - Make a replacement tail for the dragon. Sneak attack him to attach the tail. You may want to distract your dragon by giving him extra food that day.
Step 10 - go on a test flight with your dragon. Continuously improve the makeshift tail until your dragon can fly perfectly. Note: dragons like their necks scratched but do not scratch the under side of their necks or they will freeze and fall over, possible due to shock or lack of air supply.
Voila! Your dragon is now trained. Congratulations!
