semenyih's reception...

mmg at first i was having the intention of hiring this designer for my reception dress
so tgah scrolling on his blog
asal aku kenal ek?
a pic of a wedding which i went last 2 years
'kak jaja!!'
and yes !
nazreen idris is the brother !
what the?
how can i forget ?
berapa ribu kali kak jaja bgtau dlu
'akak ada abg designer. and siti nurhaliza is our close relative'
infact masa siti kahwin kak jaja jadi pengapit kot!
how can i forget? apekah ?

immediately i called kak jaja
'akak! nak abg akak design my wedding dress'
terus !
appointment made. went over the house
after soo long ta jmpe kak jaja
jejak kasih kejap
and the fact that nazreen said
'hey i ingat lah u dkt weding jaja haritu'
oh my god really?
tak sia2 rambut kerenting kembang aku ni
senang org nak ingat

spent about hour plus at the house boutique
discuss sambil makan cake n kopi sedap!

kak jaja was my roomate's senior back in UM
mereka course lain but the same faculty with me
selalu gile kak jaja datang bilik study
lepak2. makan2. merepek2 meraban. tgk movie kat laptop gajah kak siti.
and after graduation, i went to her wedding in malacca
black n pink theme
sangat cantik okkay~
and all adalah hasil kerja tangan abangnye nazreen
ho yeah!

it was a pleasure meeting with kak jaja and nazreen the other day 
and cant wait to see my dress nanti !
and on top of that

The Wed Prep : The Reception Dais

feels like
can i just quit my job
and focus on my wedding prep?
oh how i wish..


the DIYs

i love DIY soo much
but i just dont have much time to do lots of it

unlike mase tunang haritu
most of it DIY
not a single vendor hired.
(except for the canopy lah)

the big DIY thingy for my big day is
my reception dais

and my daddy's on it !

yes pelamin reception ye
bukan nikah
for me pelamin reception is a big thing
unlike pelamin nikah
i visualize it as a small simple one

at first i was a bit reluctant to have a DIY dais fo my reception
papa n mama said
'boleh buat sendri la kakak'
but i insist not to.

just like masa tunang haritu
they said 
'kakak, we may forked out the same amount of money for it, but at the end of the day the stuff will be ours'
yes, said it again and again
so bunga banyak2 yang mama na beli for the dais deco nanti
it'll end up jadi decoration kat rumah mama and my house nanti lah ye?


but then, somehow
after i put my thoughts into it
i said
'yeah why not'

and papa n mama was so happy
when i decide that

at first i ta paham 
why papa mama sanggup nak use their own bare hands on a project like this
bukan ape. i malas nak burden my parents on something big like this
paku papan plywood tu sendri
drilling, sewing the cloths and drapes sendiri
pasang mounting the spotlights sendiri
arranging the flower sendiri
padahal tu sme bole suruh vendor buat
ta yah susah2kan mereka
but seeing my parents happily volunteered to do so
i'm just extremely grateful and thankful to them
thank u papa mama !

so papaku yang Mc Gyver

with his power tools and gadgets
and with the help of AUTOCAD, 
(dont ask me whats that, its engineering software whatever not, only papa, my sister yaya and my bro, afiq knows what it is. ini hal2 engineers i malas nak tanya..cube suruh i lukis jantung ke.. tu aku tau lah..heee!)

well, he designed and positioned
my hantaran platforms
my nikah platform
my reception dais
and the canopy arrangement around the house
yes when i say virtually 
he just used his mind and click it on the mouse

he just do it on his laptop
print it
and show it to me
i will give my thoughts 
and he will justify
amendment done if needed

so ya. it looks like this :

my reception dais position and arrangement

the hantaran platforms and nikah platform

the canopy arrangement 

pics taken via hp and edited to make it clear view

i'm giving full trust to my handyman daddy for making my pelamin simple nice yet awesome
as how i imagine it'l be

papa said he will be going off to japan in May
for some business trip

so he wanted to start working with the platforms and pillars very much soon

ok papa you can do it !

*finger cross*

alright, i gotta go

nanti i'll continue on this lagi kay.
