love will keep us alive.

its been a whirlwind of a month for me.

not with just the wedding that passed, but also with a family crisis that has now left me stranded as a guardian of a ten-year-old kiddo. i've been stuck at home for quite some time now (not that i mind very much) but i find myself trying to be as responsible as i can for her. bringing her to the library, making sure she gets food, prepping her for school in two weeks' time and the likes. i feel like i've already eased into motherhood - albeit unwillingly - and i can't agree more when the hubs says we are getting more than enough practice to be parents. d'oh. which explains my lack of material to post on the blog as well as on other social platforms. 
what the hell can i talk about when im spending most of my time doing household chores, cooking lunches, dinners, running errands and easing into my new life?! 
you'd understand, don't you? 

i can't carry the weight of the world on my shoulders for too long so please, will you be strong and get well soon? 

crisis aside, people have been asking me.. "how's married life?"
to be honest, its been awesome.
i don't know why but it seems like the honeymoon period all over again. the hubs has been more loving/caring than ever - making sure im settling well in his home, doing my laundry, scheduling us-time when the kiddo is not around; the other night i fell asleep before taking the fruits out of the fridge and he woke me up at 2am to tell me he made us a fruit salad. how could i not drag my ass outta bed to eat it? :')

cheesy as it sounds - we may not have gotten married in the best of conditions, in the best of times, but i think as long as we have each other, we'll do just fine, aye?


i don't have my official wedding pics yet 'cos its peak season and they need about two months to process all pics so i'll probably only get it like after CNY -.-
anyhow, here are some taken by family and friends!

before "marching in" to the restaurant! 

my face to my sis that says "why the f are you taking photos of me when you are supposed to be handling the dessert table?!" hahaha. 

and yes, i did the embarrassing thing of choking on my vows.
the thing about writing your own vow is that.. some of the words hit way too close to home. i had rehearsed it the night before and found it hard to hold back the tears but i thought i was just being emo.. but i was wrong :( 
i think i cried a total of 3 times that day - once during my vows, once when my sister gave a speech, and once when my dad spoke. what a wuss. 

my favourite group hug shots with the T5 peeps :)

and then we had our own mini shoot back at the hotel, hehe.

the lovely bouquet that bernana tied for me with leftover flowers from the table settings!

and here's a screencap of me from kai's camera - 

can't wait for the official picturessssss! 


in other news.. i somehow can't feel the xmas spirit in the air this year. perhaps the year-end parties will take my mind off some troubles? can't wait for the slew of catch-ups to happen.

have a jolly good x'mas break y'all!

hey there, December

-inserts scream emoticon-
I can't believe it.
It is not even early early December.
It is nearing mid-December. The year is going to be over.
I am one year older. Another year of my life has passed.
I asked Sharms what significant thing happened to her this year
(okay, she got married, its hard to top that)
and when I thought about myself...hmmmm
I got a rabbit.
Yup, that's about it.
I feel so useless, haha.

First up is a picture of the gorgeous bride :)))
I was so happy for her that day, I couldn't stop tearing.
But it is her big day so I will leave it to her to blog about it,
hopefully soon
-stares at Sharms-

Hello best partner, welcome to married life. Heh.

I am not sure what I have been doing the past few weeks
but we went for Mexican food for Sharms's hens night
and oh...tacos are yummmm.

can't wait to go back again.
Plus, need to stop having Korean food
I am eating Korean at least twice a month.
I strongly suspect the staff at the restaurant can recognise us.
Cos she kinda said 'HELLO!!' a little too happily the last time we were there.

Went to Common Man Coffee Roasters for brunch that day
(I don't know why I always end up going to places known for coffee,
when I don't even drink coffee :( )
picked the Turkish breakfast cos fried feta sounds too good to pass.
It was overall decent, a little pricey though.

then went elsewhere to sweets.
I am a sad fellow. I don't even like sweets :(
Lynn says I am easy to feed. More like cheap.

And because there is just no way to link to this picture,
here is the most awkward blog transition of all times.
There you go, Buns.

I know he is a boy but its okay.
What he can't see (literally) won't hurt him.
I am still waiting for a mini Santa hat from Mella for Christmas!

And blogging made me realise I have been lazy in dressing up this past 3 weeks.
Really, Kelly? 3 weeks and you clobber THREE outfits??! ONLY??
I know. I am ashamed of myself. :(

wearing forest with navy cos I have been strangely attracted to forest colour these days.

combing 2 of my fav patterns, stripes & daisies.
This stripes obsession really has gotta stop.
I am getting dirty looks from Sharms everytime I try to sneak a striped item from MP home.

and my new fav crop top - MIORA in white.
I actually got it in black as well cos I love love love the cutting.
And the length. And the material.
I wanna wear it all the time. With maxi skirts, flouncy skirts, hightwaisted shorts etc.

like this - MOIRA black with an upcoming striped skirt (probably launching next week!) from MP.
which is totally what I would wear.
And yes, got this skirt as well. :)))

also, another sneak of this quilted box clutch upcoming this Sunday.
the quality is really good, the insides are lined with red satin
and it comes with a detachable sling.
Love :)

have a good December peeps!
I will try to update more, promise!
