Love Me Tender


When we were wedding planning last year, we realised that for a variety of reasons we had to get registered (aka legally wed) before our traditional temple ceremony in Kuala Lumpur in December. 

Since the registration was a formality, we decided to have a bit of fun. So a year ago today, having told only our immediate family, we made my elopement fantasies come true and "ran away" to Vegas...



Our officiant was really lovely. While I don't remember his precise words, I recall he spoke of everlasting love and hoped the sun will shine on us forever as it did that September morning, while singing sweet love songs throughout. I pretty much weeped when he belted Love Me Tender. Fun fact: he appeared as the King in the wedding scene in Katy Perry's Waking Up In Vegas video.


I was actually in Vegas a few days prior on a girls' trip but had said nothing of our plans - until the night before. Unlike the other ladies who had to fly back to New York, I knew one of my dearests, Sandy, had no plans that Monday morning. So mere hours prior, I requested her presence to be the official witness to the ceremony:

It was a great prelude involving just us two, to the huge party we eventually threw a few months later. 

We are off to Sin City this weekend to celebrate one of the best days of our lives. This time, Elvis is not invited.

Paintbox - Nails of New York


I might live in the city of cheap and easy manicures, however getting cool nailart with gel polish for an affordable price has always been challenging. Until I discovered Paintbox a few months ago. At each easily-bookable appointment, I pick out a gel manicure design from their lookbook and decide on the colour scheme, and then settle in with a complimentary glass (usually two) of prosecco. 

My first appointment was made just before a double beach trip - Montauk and Barbados. Bright yellow made for an obvious choice. I was obsessed at how great it looked and durability of the manicure. I was hooked henceforth. Here are just two out of the MANY pictures I took of that look:
