Thankful for Ahlao ๐Ÿ˜Œ + Nya Nyaโ€™s birthday! โค๏ธ

Sometimes I feel like I am doing so much work I canโ€™t breathe.

Just yesterday I texted the same ID twice thinking he was another ID ๐Ÿ˜ต

Sometimes I wish I wasnโ€™t juggling keks, home reno, wedding prep all at the same time.

Sometimes I read reno articles and fall asleep with my contacts still on.

Sometimes I wish Ahpei was beside me doing research together.

Sometimes Iโ€™m so tired.

But this..

Keeps me going ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Sometimes it doesnโ€™t matter
who is doing โ€˜all the workโ€™.

Every time I feel stressed and wallop in self pity, I remind myself that ahlao is probably having it much worse than me at work..

So it doesnโ€™t matter.

Doesnโ€™t matter if Iโ€™m the one fixing ID appointments, doesnโ€™t matter if I have to buy bridesmaid dresses, doesnโ€™t matter if I have to liaise wedding things.

What matters is we are all working hard in our own ways, for a better future together. #SungHouse will be the fruit of our labour, and I really canโ€™t wait :โ€™)

The gifs are all me ๐Ÿ˜ข

This is tiring but I will press on.

SO HEPPI cos look whoโ€™s back โ˜บ๏ธ

Ahlao made it to join us for nya nyaโ€™s birthday dinner with our family kiki ๐Ÿ’“

He dropped by our place before dinner so we took babaโ€™s car ๐Ÿ™‚

It was SO GUD seeing Ahpei cos I really missed him so muchhh. Felt so nice hugging him again!!

Before leaving the house for Vivo, I went to pet gugubie & told him as usual. I also gave him a kiss, to which Ahpei whined:

You havenโ€™t even kissed me
and then you kiss him!!!!!!

Lol zbj leh really. Jealous over one gougou.

So I went to wash my mouth before giving ahlao a kiss too ๐Ÿ˜…

Can donโ€™t sulk already? ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

My headache was so bad that it made me really dizzy cos it was throbbing so badly. Headaches suck!!!

Ahlao giving me a foot massage to relieve my headache ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Apparently you have to massage the area between your fourth and last toe. My head was hurting on the left side so he had to massage my right foot.

IT HURTS SO MUCH ZOMG.

Damn painful leh!! Like my soul left my body kind of painful. But it really did help with my headache, itโ€™s amazing!!

Xiexie ahlao ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Had dinner at Menya Musashi again!

Ahpei brought me here for my birthday last month hehe. Wanted to let nya nya try the food here too! ๐Ÿœ

She had the white broth while I had the black ๐Ÿคค

Ahlaoโ€™s ramen was legit cos the black pepper pork was so huge, tender and legit yummeh! Worth the higher price ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

It was a major ramen date with the family โค๏ธ

Of course there was a kek surprise hehehe. Nya nyaโ€™s shows fez here lolol ๐Ÿคฃ

She was busy with her social media already hahaha donโ€™t pray pray @3gmum

Thank you for getting the kek Mahoo! @jieyiwong ๐Ÿค—

Baba mama โค๏ธโค๏ธ

We were really full after dinner so we walked around Vivo for a bit. I was just feeling really heppi to hold ahlaoโ€™s hand the whole time hahaha ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Bought some more durian puffs to take home for our legendary red egg ceremony! ๐Ÿคฉ

Our little fam ๐Ÿ˜Œโค๏ธ

Gugubie was snoozing at his corner so we didnโ€™t gajiao him. But the moment we started peeling the eggs, he came over and started barking so we all sang a birthday song for him to bark along HAHAHA ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

AND HE REALLY DID!! ๐Ÿคฃ

Nya nya always says auspicious things while rolling red eggs on our faces so Mahoo took over her role last night!

But she damn zbj last part still go crack the egg on malaโ€™s head!! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

We be DED lololol damn funny la!!! Please watch the video lolol. ๐Ÿ˜…

I washed my hair and changed in to my PJs after all dat fud and lazed on the sofa with ahlao, watching random YouTube videos ๐Ÿ˜

By around 1030pm, ahlao was leaving so I walked him to the carpark as usual. We gave each other a few hugs & kisses but it was so hard to say bye ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜…

Long story short, I ended up in his car & back at his place ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

I had nothing with me, just my condo access card and phone lolol. Wearing my PJs, with no bag, no work clothes, not even a single cent. Really is win liao.

Thankfully I had a standby dress in ahlaoโ€™s wardrobe that I could wear to work today ๐Ÿ˜†

It was such an impromptu decision to stay over and I was honestly struggling cos I wanted to nua till late this morning with gugubie (I even brought him into my room last night lol ๐Ÿ˜ฌ) since work starts in the afternoon. Plus stay over means I confirm grab to werk haha. But oh well lol.

Best decision ever ๐Ÿ˜…

Celebratory piggyback otw back to Ahlaoโ€™s place HAHAHAHA! ๐Ÿฝ

We were walking out from the carpark when I casually asked Ahlao if I would be heavy to carry (since he trains with sand bags) & he immediately told me to hop on and even ran to the lift lobby while I bounced up and down lol wtf ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Sometimes unplanned decisions makes us the most heppi ๐Ÿ˜Œ

We both looked like idiots giggling and running around (plus I was screaming cos my slipper were falling off hahaha), really is in our own worlds ๐Ÿ˜…

But being in love is being silly and I love being silly with ahlao ๐Ÿค—โค๏ธ

Yole + OWNDAYS Follower Discount + Avocado Cheesekek Recipe ๐Ÿฅ‘ + #Kekspam!

Woke up at 4am today to send ahlao off (while in bed ๐Ÿคฃ) cos itโ€™s going to be a hectic week for him and I wonโ€™t be seeing him till Friday! I will be so love sick lulll ๐ŸŒš

Safekeeping his ring for a week. So ahlao is always with me โค๏ธ

He just reached camp so my worried hart can go back to sleep haha ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Night for now! ๐Ÿฝ

โ€”

I really miss ahlao.. so Iโ€™m starting my major recap with a super cute (in my blinded eyes la ok ๐Ÿ˜†) video of him doing some maths calculation HAHAHA.

๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…

In case you canโ€™t hear clearly, he asked me not to video him lolol why so cute.

โ€”

The other day he had to work late till 3/4am so I decided to surprise him at his place hehe! Todali impromptu lol.

It was quite late at night & I was chilling at home with the sisters but I kept thinking about ahlao ๐Ÿ˜…

So by 11pm I was like aiyah heck la so I packed a simple luggage and ็ฆปๅฎถๅ‡บ่ตฐ ๐Ÿ˜‚

Texted Ahpeiโ€™s jiejie to standby & open door for me and when I reached an hour later, MY PHONE DIED. Lol fml. Had to knock on peopleโ€™s door at midnight oopsie I was so worried Iโ€™d wake Pa up!!

Thankfully jiejie heard me and opened the door for me hehe. I went in to find Ahpeiโ€™s room door closed – she even turned on the aircon in advance for me!! ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Xiao touched haha is it sked I ็ƒญๆญป ๐Ÿค—

So damn shiok to enter a cooled room la! So thankful :)) I put down my stuff, charged my phone, then texted Ahpei to tell me when he ends work.

We texted intermittently until 2am when I finally cmi and fell asleep without replying him. The next moment I woke up, he came into the room liao! ๐Ÿ˜†

It was 4am and we both gave each other a shock HAHAHA. He was shocked to see me in his bed and I was shocked by his sudden entrance lol.

Surprise fail.

Cos he thought I was asleep at home and didnโ€™t wanna wake me so he didnโ€™t text me zz zbj ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

Hi ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Someone was very shocked to find me in his bed at 4am HAHAHAHA. I was so heppi I did go over though. Cos Ahpei had half day off the next day & accompanied me to my Bosch meeting ๐Ÿ˜

Finally picked out the appliances for #SungHouse & Iโ€™ll be sharing some really cool stuff with you guys over the next few months! โœŒ๐Ÿผ

Iโ€™m so eggcited to be working with Bosch cos there are some events/workshops planned too! Canโ€™t reveal much for now but we might get to meet & cook/bake together!

Rare Friday lunching with Ahlao on a Friday ๐Ÿ’“

Decided to grab lunch nearby after the meeting so we ate at this food court called District 20 & from this stall called Sea Salt.

Ahlao had the fish and chips ($7) while I had the lunch promo of fish & mushroom herb rice ($6.5).

I was really quite eggcited to try to mushroom rice but WTFBBQ they loaded it with minced coriander!! ๐Ÿคข๐Ÿคข

It was such a total nightmare zomg ๐Ÿ˜ญ

I took a bite and I freaking knew it. But thankfully it wasn't too strong despite the scary amount of coriander I can see in the rice, so I just added lots of chilli & tartar sauce to mask the taste ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Towards the end I really bth so I donated my rice to ahlao. Legit keep gagging please zzz. I know it's a psychological thing but I just kent.

WASTE MY CALORIES SIA ๐Ÿ˜’

After lunch, I wanted to take a bus back to shop since I had a straight bus but bez ahlao on earth refused to lemme leave him so he drove me to work instead ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿค—

Really thankful for ahpei being so sweet; with him around I always feel very taken care of! Very spoilt too ๐Ÿ˜ฌ Ahlao very ็–ผ่€ๅฉ† ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’•

Everything was zero difference in terms of taste though. I couldnโ€™t tell it apart from llao llao at all??? ๐Ÿ˜…

Thanksssss for satisfying my cravings wimme guys ๐Ÿค— @jieyiwong @missanpan @icetallmilk

Rave sent me a snapshot about the OWNDAYS promo a couple days ago & it seemed too gud to be truuu?

Basically you can convert your Instagram followers/likes into cash discounts! I was really curious if it was so easy (by just uploading a pic of yourself at the store) to get a pair of specs just like that so I went to trai lol.

BTW THIS IS NOT AN AD GUYS I AM EQUALLY AMAZED BY THE PROMO LOL.

I posted IG stories last night & received too many DMs so I shall just write abt the deets here! ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜…

Since I am on contacts, I asked the salesperson if I could use my discount to get a pair of prescribed specs for my dad. But nope, the discount only applies to the customer if he or she is the owner of that Instagram account. Theyโ€™ll verify.

And you can only redeem one piece of eyewear so my $3850 worth (77k followers x $0.05 per follower) of discounts will not be fully utilised ๐Ÿ˜‚

Lol duh right.

Ok la expected, but still a gud deal leh! To not pay a single cent HAHAHAHA. #auntylife

So anyways, I made a trip down to the nearest OWNDAYS outlet at Tiong Bahru Plaza with the sisters + BBIL just now to try getting a pair of sunglasses for free ๐Ÿ˜…

I was quite anxious about looking like a joke trying to score a pair of eyewear with IG followers (this campaign alr sounds damn joke) but it really is like that leh!! ๐Ÿ™€

We asked the salesperson if we legit just needed to post a pic & hashtag and she said YES lol so off we went with our mini photoshoot ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†

I grabbed a pair of shades off the rack & BBIL started slaving for us HAHAHAHAHA ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Not before disturbing his own wife trollollol #toughlove

Ling looking mighty cute in her pic! ๐Ÿค“

She had 2k followers (I feel so superficial for even writing this but ya ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚) so she got a pair that was $78 and paid nothing too! Siao bo.

Hello youโ€™re supposed to help me not photobomb me ๐Ÿ˜† obviously this didnโ€™t make the cut HAHA.

Anw donโ€™t ask me why I picked this red af pair lolol I really grabbed a random one off the shelves just to take a pic BAHAHA.

This did! ๐Ÿ˜Ž The bokeh on point lolol iPhone is amazing. Sanks BBIL!!

๐Ÿ“ท: @icetallmilk

So I uploaded this pic on IG and went on choosing my shades. I knew nothing about everything so BBIL helped us pick the frames lol.

And today I learnt a new word – Aviator ๐Ÿ˜‚

Our receipts lol ๐Ÿคฉ

Actually quite paiseh like really take for free only la sia. Even came with one year warranty lol. When the salesperson was done, we were like oh okay, thatโ€™s all? We go now?? ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

And we really walked out of the store just like that lol. Eh legit ah this one #notsponsored #notanad but is I ownself really mind blown lol.

Plus I think quite easy to get the discount considering most people are so active on social media now?!

Even if you donโ€™t pay zero dollars, you still get to enjoy a significant discount just by having a couple hundreds followers or likes leh.

Somemore they have no way to make sure you donโ€™t delete the post after walking away with free specs lol ๐Ÿ™ƒ

This campaign like got loophole sibo lol ๐Ÿ˜…

They are really making it easy for you to score a pair of eyewear so faster go get yours before 31 March! The promo period so long somemore lolol huat ah ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

#goodthingsmustshare
#toogudtobetru
#butittruuuuu

Wearing our loots, picked by BBIL lol ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž

I think mine are called aviators or something cos Ahlec say last time pilots wear this kind of shades lol aiyah whatever la. ้‡็‚นๆ˜ฏ, I can bring them to Bali! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Last segment of this longass post; itโ€™s recipe time!! ๐ŸŽ‰

Recently I had the opportunity to team up with Kenwood to host my first baking workshop! But then it was a very small scale one, involving some invited participants only!

Not obliged/paid to post the recipe here but I thought itโ€™d do it anyway since Iโ€™ve always been sharing recipes with all you dayre friends here! ๐Ÿค— #mealswithmissgoob

Sticking to a more wholesome and healthy theme, I made an Avocado Lime Cheesecake thatโ€™s packed with creamy avocado goodness; mmm healthy fats! ๐Ÿฅ‘๐Ÿฅ‘

Hereโ€™s the very simple recipe:

350g ground graham crackers

150g unsalted butter (melted)

350ml whipping cream

150g sugar

4 teaspoons gelatin

2 ripe avocados

300g cream cheese

3 limes (juice)

8 inch springform pan with removable base

Mixed ground graham crackers with melted butter and press into mold to form crust. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.

On low heat, mix sugar and whipping cream, stir constantly to dissolve sugar. Add gelatin powder and mix well. Set aside to cool at room temperature.

Using the creaming attachment, mix cream cheese and avocados. Beat until there are little or no lumps. Add cooled cream mixture and lime juice, beat until smooth and creamy.

Pour cheesecake mixture through a sift to remove lumps. Once the mixture is smooth enough for your preference, pour it into the mold with crust.

Chill cheesecake in the fridge for at least 4-5 hours or overnight. Served chilled.

Optional: Garnish with your favourite berries or chocolate sauce!

Since we made it fresh on the spot during the workshop, I only sliced my avo cheesekek at shop the next day and it was so pretty ๐Ÿ˜

That shade of green!!!

I think this recipe is quite flexible so yโ€™all can just tweak it if you find it too sweet or prefer more avo ok! Lemme know how it goes if you try it! ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿคค

Had my poly mates over for dinner last night and we had a blast!!

I grabbed home from ahlao’s place (thanks to 30% off hitch, it was only $9.8 lol) & did nothing but wait for my RedMart to arrive.

Online grocery shopping is so convenient la!! Unlocked free delivery cos I ordered fud for an army so obviously we hit $100 pretty easily hahaha.

I ordered once from honestbee and the quality was shit la. They sent me ROTTEN BERRIES can you believe it. Zzz. Just because it’s a delivery ๐Ÿ˜’

I was indeed lazy to head down to the store to do a swop la (if not I order online for what right) so I had to throw some of them out. But what a disappointment.

I didn’t have high expectations for RedMart but the quality of yesterday’s fud was damn bagus!! Somemore I ordered a lot of fresh stuff like spinach, tang oh, spring onion etc. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

My poly classmate is working for some beer company rn and he sent over 48 bottles of Peroni for us wewwww!! ๐Ÿป

It was such a great night with old friends, lots of gud fud & laughter ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Adler did his accent imitation and that left us in fits lol. Too bad I can’t share the full version oopsie but zomg. Legit laugh until pain.

Banluck-ed the night away & I won money whee! ๐Ÿคฉ

Ahlao doesnโ€™t know

Ok hi everyone!

First, here’s a super cute vid of my Gooby ๐Ÿถ

Since my ahlao doesn’t know I’m writing here yet, I shall use this chance to document my excitement rn ๐Ÿ˜

Anw ไบบๆ—ฅๅฟซไน everyone! ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

So after dinner just now, I was chilling with my sisters at home. We were talking about dayre lol, and I was writing my last post. Exported my stuff here, and I suddenly felt like heading to ahlao’s place to surprise him hehe ๐Ÿค—

His work ends late today, probably after 2am. And since we are heading out tmr morning for an errand tgt, might as well I go over now so we can leave home tgt right! Genius me ๐Ÿคฉ

So I took the last train at about 11pm+, texted jiejie to open door for me later when I reach. Love is when I haven’t even reached, jiejie alr turned on the aircon in the room for me ๐Ÿ’• Lol is it know I ๆ€•็ƒญ ๐Ÿ˜…

So anyways, I’m lying in our big bed all alone now, and Ahlao has no idea I’m here hehehe. Can’t wait to see his reaction later! Hope I don’t ๅๆ•ˆๆžœ and give him a scare at 3am though ๐Ÿ˜†

And.. I’m kind of getting the hang of writing here on WP! But I feel a bit handicapped without the stickers ๐Ÿ˜… but ya, HI EVERYONE! ๐Ÿ’“

Good morning guys!

My ahlao came back home at 4am (!!!) and I had already concussed for quite some time despite trying to stay awake to surprise him. Plan iz failz lol ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

But I think he had a bigger shock finding a motionless pig body in his bed HAHAHA ๐Ÿ˜‚

Hi๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—

We dropped by the Bosch Experience Centre just now to finalise some of the deets for our appliances selection. I am so absolutely eggcited for #SungHouse already la!! ๐Ÿ˜

Had a quick lunch nearby since we were starving from not taking breakfast lolol ๐Ÿ˜…

It was really nice having lunch with ahlao on a weekday! We ate at this food court called District 20 and from this stall called Sea Salt.

After lunch, I wanted to take a bus back to shop since I had a straight bus but bez ahlao on earth refused to lemme leave him so he drove me to work instead ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿค—

Really thankful for ahpei being so sweet; with him around I always feel very taken care of! Very spoilt too ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

#HIMMH โค๏ธ + Our Solemnisation Party โœจ

Alright, here comes my
final post on Dayre.. ๐Ÿ˜Œ

I started this journey on Dayre from the very first day, not knowing how my life would actually change so much. But it did โœจ

In all sorts of ways.

My business grew, I learnt new things, I shared my passion, I expressed unpopular opinions, I forged real friendships, I found love.. ๐Ÿ’•

Dayre was a platform & community that I turned to, to share my anxieties of meeting someone new (actually my first time ever meeting ANY BOY lol), express my insecurities, to document the beautiful moments of a first love, to sharing my joy of marrying that first love ๐Ÿ˜‚

You guys were at every part of
my significant milestones!

Like a fairytale (if I may say so HAHA), I would like my journey here to end with a beautiful ็ป“ๅฑ€ ๐Ÿ’•

Iโ€™m finally sharing the official pics from our solemnisation party ๐Ÿ˜Œ

But lemme start with a little background story about how we met! I know many of you have been waiting for me to talk about this for the longest time.

Thank you for being so patient! ๐Ÿค—

#HIMMH

I met ahlao on Tinder!

Coincidentally, 23 Feb was also the day Ahpei gave me his phone number so we could whatsapp LOL.

We talked 24/7 (like legit from early morning to past midnight kind) for a whole week & he NEVER asked for my name and still refused to ask for my number this zbj lolol so I had to put aside my girl pride & HINT-ASK FOR HIS NUMBER INSTEAD ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Come to think of it, HE DIDNโ€™T EVEN SAY HELLO!!

So rude one ah this boy. Straight away want to find out if your future wife can cook is it ๐Ÿ˜‚

VERY MAFAN TO TALK TO ME SIA ๐Ÿ˜…

ADD ME BA LEH.

So anyways, we talked on WhatsApp for MORE THAN A MONTH and there was no advancement lolol. Our conversations advanced so much – we talked about our work, passions, dreams, even our families.. we even learnt each otherโ€™s birthdays and where we lived lol.

I was so troubled I kept asking my sisters if this dude is just using me to pass time or cure boredom since heโ€™s not keen to meet up at all! But this one I die also donโ€™t want to ask first la so paiseh right!!! ๐Ÿ˜†

AND THEN THE DAY FINALLY CAME:

He finally asked me out!! ๐Ÿ˜…

Wang Wang was some inside joke thing cos I lost a bet (he guessed my birthday correctly!) and had to buy him Wang Wang but he never came to โ€˜redeemโ€™ it from me.

Like hello I buy the ่ฝฆ็ฅจ for so long alr why you no ไธŠ่ฝฆ ahlao!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

My shop was still at Bukit Timah at that time and I loved walking home from shop so that was my usual Sunday activity lolol. People single girl maaaa.

So I asked if I could head home to wash up first ๐Ÿ˜‚ #vain lolol.

I was quite upfront with my feelings lolol go tell my date Iโ€™m nervous ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคฃ

And then Ahpei damn disturb, ask me not to consult my BESTFRIEND all!! From the very first day, he read me like a book already ๐Ÿค—

He knew exactly what I would be doing HAHAHAHA but I denied it la ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

But consult my BESTFRIEND was the first thing I did BAHAHAHAHAHA I KENT ๐Ÿคฃ

Also asked my sisters for opinion on where to go lololol Iโ€™m such a nervous wreck ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…

In the end Ahpei suggested meeting at my condo playground even though we couldโ€™ve just met at CWP; he was gonna come pick me up! +10 points lolol ๐Ÿ˜Š

Even BESTFRIEND approved hehe ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Happy sigh, writing all these really makes me feel the same excitement I felt while anticipating Ahpeiโ€™s arrival lolol ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Long story short, we sat at the playground and REALLY ATE WANG WANG while we talked about Ahpeiโ€™s childhood.

Then we walked to CWP, with Ahpei telling me all about his NS life cos I was just too nervous to say anything, so he did all the story telling ๐Ÿ˜‚

Amazing how he kept talking and talking just to engage me in a conversation HAHAHA!

Iโ€™ve NEVER been on a date, much less meet anyone from Tinder wtf. Apparently I was the first person Ahpei met from online too! At that point of time, who wouldโ€™ve though weโ€™d end up married to each other!!

Really is fate ๐Ÿ˜ญโค๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

I barely talked during our dinner at Subway. Ahpei told me to pick a restaurant but I picked Food Republic and he was like โ€œWhat?!!โ€ ๐Ÿ˜‚

So I picked Subway lor..

I remember being so nervous my skirt was wet with perspiration from sitting down LOLOL and I couldnโ€™t even finish my fud for the first time cos I felt like puking from nervousness (legit, I wanted to throw up) cos so ๅ่ƒƒ ๐Ÿคฎ

After the awkward dinner (mostly on my end), we didnโ€™t know where to go and kind of ended up outside the MRT.

Assuming I just dug my own grave, I blurted out an awkward โ€œOk byeโ€ cos I thought Ahpei was gonna take the train and leave liao ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

But then he was like xiao shocked lolol so he said โ€œOh nvm la lemme walk you home!โ€ But then I was like uh my house very far.. LOL ๐Ÿ™„ I said all kinds of crap (we walked here in the first place) that didnโ€™t make sense ugh lemme go shoot myself!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Thankfully, Ahpei insisted on walking me home and it was then I kinda loosened up and talked more.

At times Iโ€™d find myself walking ahead of him (lol my gancheong nervousness.. got so eager to go home or not!!) & Ahpei had to keep reminding me to chill and walk slower ๐Ÿคฃ

So that night, we walked reallyyyyy slowly but I still got home at like 8pm HAHAHA what kind of first date end so early one!!

We said an awkward goodbye at my gate and I saw Ahpei turn around and leave. No lingering at all.

SIAO LIAO LOR.

I was so scared Iโ€™d never score a second date cos Iโ€™m such a weirdo ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ™„ When I stepped into the house feeling all dejected, my family be like โ€œwalau why you so fast come back?!!โ€

๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ’”

I really thought I gg.com already, but then the next moment, Ahpei texted me! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

To tell me that he felt lonely walking out himself aww! Then he also said next time I should buy him steak!

It was THE second date sign!! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

Had to seek assurance from my BESTFRIEND again ๐Ÿ˜…

Anw Ahpei did ask me out a second time (to eat YTF and then we went to Woodlands Waterfront Park where he tied my hair with a strand of grass rmb?!) and the rest is history.

And so guys, that was how I met my ahlao! โ˜บ๏ธ

I hope my silly story is worth the wait hahaha.

I didnโ€™t dare write about this not because I am ashamed of online dating (I had no chance to meet people offline cos of work so really bobian), but more because the idea of marrying someone I met online sounded so damn far fetched even to myself and I didnโ€™t want to jinx anything until things got serious ๐Ÿ˜†

Before I even matched with Ahpei, I really did match with a bunch of freaks; one even asked me if Iโ€™m a virgin wtf I unmatched immediately. Why is that his daiji anw?!

Out of all the real weirdos and tikopeks who wanted nothing but โ€˜casual funโ€™, I really struck the jackpot with Ahpei.

From day one, he was this proper, polite gentleman, loves his family, loves my family, loves ่ง‚้Ÿณ่ฉ่จ, loves Singapore.. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

We share so many similarities and Iโ€™m thankful we got along so well, which really helped our relationship blossom :โ€™)

Till today, itโ€™s hard to believe I actually found someone like him on Tinder so donโ€™t give up hope guys! There are gud people online! ๐Ÿ˜Œ

So yep fast forward 10 months, Ahpei asked me to marry him and then fast forward another 10 months, we signed the papers to become man and wife ๐Ÿ’˜

On New Yearโ€™s Day this year, we held an intimate solemnisation party to share the joy with the people dearest to us ๐Ÿ™‚

Ok done with the declarations, moving on! ๐Ÿ˜‚โค๏ธ

Starting with this shot of Ahpei literally holding his heart while watching me walk down the โ€˜aisleโ€™ ๐Ÿ˜ญโค๏ธ

Iโ€™ve dreamed of looking at this face of his, looking at me. But that day, I couldnโ€™t look at him at all. I looked in front as I walked towards Ahpei but it was a blurry scene ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Btw guys, I painstakingly cropped all the pictures into a square so yโ€™all can appreciate the full beauty of the setup done by Grace & Amy!

Love the rustic colour palette of cream, dark red & green. Itโ€™s perfect โœจ

Holding babaโ€™s arm, I could feel his nervous breathing. I know baba must have been overwhelmed with emotions too :โ€™)

Everyone was clapping and cheering, our song was playing at the background..

And that at that very special moment, my VIP came up to me :โ€™)))

What a precious moment with my big love ๐Ÿถโค๏ธ

Thank you so much for capturing this @joycesayshello!!

I was really happy and ๆ”พๅฟƒ having Joyce shoot for us cos as a fellow dog mami herself, I knew sheโ€™d look out for these special gougou moments for me!! ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’•

I was pleasantly surprised when Ahpei presented the bouquet to me because I completely forgot about flowers ๐Ÿ˜…

Couldnโ€™t take my eyes off ahlao cos somebody so well-dressed, so handsome โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคฉ

After Ahpei said his vows (he memorised every single word of it ๐Ÿ˜ข), I turned to baba and be like โ€œBaba! Your phone?โ€

Cos I typed mine in my dadโ€™s notes app that very morning while everyone was busy getting ready ๐Ÿ˜†

In the foreground is BBIL, helping us record that very moment on video.

I put him in charge of my Olympus that day and he really helped us capture many many shots while carrying the various lens & tripod around tirelessly. SANKS @icetallmilk! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

Ahpei fez here I kent ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Our wedding bands from Tiara.

We were walking around Centrepoint when we chanced upon this shop! I liked their classic & minimalist designs (although some a bit ่€่€ la ๐Ÿ˜…) plus the price was very reasonable ๐Ÿ™‚

Ahpei and I are not into brands so we didnโ€™t look around much and confirmed the purchase that very day! ๐Ÿ˜

Helping Ahpei out on his ring felt so surreal.

As a young girl, Iโ€™ve always seen weddings on TV shows and movies but then at that very moment, I was living that scene.

When Ahpei put my ring on for me, I was only thinking one thing:

Donโ€™t get stuck ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Our bride and groom chairs! ๐Ÿ˜

This came as a surprise cos I didnโ€™t expect Grace & Amy to decorate the chairs too!

Cos the thing is, we held our solemnisation ceremony at my place and the green lounge was actually a public area ๐Ÿ˜‚ #sobasic

We didnโ€™t rent tables nor chairs so it was really nice of them to prettify these chairs for us!!

My saga seed terrarium ring holder awww โค๏ธ

I love it so much!! The Mr & Mrs signs were secretly requested by my ahlao lol I didnโ€™t even know he had these in mind!

Thank you Grace for getting these for us! ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Bought our gold glitter pens from TYPO since I had a 20% discount hahaha.

Baba was so nervous signing our wedding cert! ๐Ÿ˜†

AND WE ARE OFFICIALLY MARRIED! ๐Ÿ‘ฐ๐Ÿป๐Ÿคต๐Ÿป

This floral arch was more that what I could ever dream of having. The fabric, the colours, the massive arrangement.. ๐Ÿ’•

Thank you so much for going all out and exceeding our expectations Grace & Amy :โ€™))

๐Ÿ’

Love this shot!!

It was Bryanโ€™s idea (for my dress) hehe and Joyce captured it at the right moment! Kudos to them ๐Ÿ˜

BTW BRYAN IS HER PHOTOG FRIEND.
HE IS NOT ZILONG.
I REPEAT, HE IS NOT ZILONG.

Cos someone stupiak go shake his hand and call him ZL lolol erhem yes I am talking about you @missanpan ๐Ÿคฃ

Oh and so many of you were asking me since the begging of time ๐Ÿ˜‚ YES I baked my own wedding kek! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

I actually didnโ€™t have any idea how I wanted it to look like lol. Until the day before!! I stared at the layers of kek, completely out of inspiration ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Then I remembered Grace telling me sheโ€™s gon incorporate dark red roses, plus Ahpei shirt is burgundy too.. so ya lor, I decided Iโ€™d just make a rustic kek in the same colour ๐Ÿ˜…

Threw on some matching macarons, gold leaves and bam! Dโ€™was my kek โœจ

Even gugubie couldnโ€™t focus lolol; he wanted to lunge for the kek! It did smell pretty gud la HAHAHAHA ๐Ÿค—

Huge thanks to Grace for making the little buntings for us! It says โ€˜BEST DAY EVERโ€™ ๐Ÿคฉ

This candid shot of gugubie & I ๐Ÿ˜

And zomg I cannot remember my hair was this long!! And this was 2 months ago only lolol.

As you can see, my ahlao really loved the MR & MRS glitter signs ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

More ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†

I feel like I donโ€™t deserve this pretty set up at all ๐Ÿ˜ญ Itโ€™s too perfect already ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Canโ€™t believe they transformed an empty public area into this rustic, dreamy, floral wonderland โค๏ธโœจ

I was so heppi to be a sneakers bride, like finally!! These were really comfy to be in! Definitely my kind of wedding shoes compared to heels!! ๐Ÿ˜

One more of us against the gorgeous backdrop ๐Ÿ™‚

Gugubie was wearing a bow tie too! His groomer gave it to him hehe. I specially kept it for this day! Mami get married, of course my behbi must be cute cute ๐Ÿถ

โ€œYou married my mami?โ€

โ€œOk sayang me first then you can be my dehdi!!โ€

๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

#ThisGooby obviously enjoying his massage very very muchie HAHAHAHA. Tongue come out all ๐Ÿคฃ

Zomgah still feeling very emotional when I see this photo.

Which is a zoomed in version of..

This photo ๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’“

Ling came forward to give me a hug and we just held each other and BAWLED ๐Ÿ˜ญ

So much love for this sister who was with me throughout this whole journey from our Tinder days. She met BBIL on Tinder too! And he also soldier. We really is ๅงๅฆน la sia ๐Ÿค—

They are getting married in two weeks zomggg I will confirm be damn emotional la!!!

I still rmb when Ling worked with me at Goobycakes. I was really worried that our crazy work schedule would rob her of her chance to ever get married.

Cos the both of us hardly had the time to go out and meet new people the โ€˜traditional wayโ€™ – take part in social activities, get to know friends of friends (we didnโ€™t even have many friends to begin with lolol)..

So the both of us figured enough is enough, we had to do something about our lives or we will work to our deaths and end up marrying each other ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Iโ€™m really glad to be on this journey with you meimei @missanpan ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Not forgetting my other meimei, @jieyiwong, who always lends me a listening ear when I need one. Even through the late nights ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Gugubie is so cute here btw!! ๐Ÿถ

One with ahlao too & no he is not blinking and certainly not sleeping. His eyes are open. I repeat. HIS EYES ARE OPEN ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

And zomg gugubie is looking like a ไน–ๅฎๅฎ here just perched on my lap!! And he is legit smiling for the camera aww. So cuteee I kent โค๏ธโค๏ธ

Iโ€™m just so so so thankful that Gooby was able to โ€˜attendโ€™ my wedding. Glad we decided to have our solemnisation at home! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

I forgot if it was Joyce or Bryan who gave us the idea, or was it BBIL, but we decided to throw some saga seeds around to get that โ€˜confettiโ€™ shot ๐Ÿ˜†

Tried so many times but we kept throwing them at different timings BAHAHA ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Poor Ahlec had to keep picking up saga seeds from the ground lololol ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

One last pic; also my favourite ๐Ÿ’‹

Ahpei hates kissing me when I have lipstick or lip balm on hahaha but on our wedding day he didnโ€™t mind at all sia! Hehehe ๐Ÿคฉ

Jokes aside, thank you, my dayre friends, for reading our story and sharing our joy. Thank you for your well wishes, virtual support & love :โ€™)

From here on, Ahlei and I will continue to appreciate each other, love each other, and grow together to become better people ๐Ÿ˜Œ

I feel a little sad that I canโ€™t continue to share more about our wedding & home renovation happenings here on Dayre anymore ๐Ÿ˜”

But fret not guys, this wonโ€™t be the end ok? If youโ€™d like to continue following snippets of our wedding planning & home renovation journey, I will update regularly on Instagram @missgoob ๐Ÿ™‚

As for writing, I already have a dot com so Iโ€™d probably continue writing there:

http://www.missgoob.com ๐Ÿ“

Many of you have DM-ed to ask if I have a WordPress account – yes I created one under the username @missgoob but I havenโ€™t decided if I want to be all over the place.. I downloaded WP mainly to do the dayre export.. after ending this post ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Sigh I feel like kraiing now!! ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Wtf why am I even so emotionally attached to an app. But we are talking about yearsss of memories here ya. And itโ€™s already part of a lifestyle. Dayre-less life will need some major getting used to ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

So I guess this is goodbye, my virtual friends! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ

Thank you for sticking around ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

If you ever see Ahpei and I on the streets, donโ€™t be shy and do say hi to us ok! I will give you a warm DAYRE FRIEND HUG! ๐Ÿค—

Dayre might be gone but our friendship shall not be! Love yโ€™all & take care โค๏ธ
