Finally!!!

After a long wait I have finally become an “auntie” again. Wiiiiiiieeeeeeeee!!!!

One of my best friends back home gave this morning birth to a healthy baby – and I couldn’t be happier for her. Or thrilled. Or excited.

Congratulations Helle – I cannot wait to meet the little one when I am home at Xmas!!!

Lots of love to the both of you.

Sorry for not updating the entire weekend but have been living in a “wedding bubble” since Friday.

TomTamara got married on Saturday and it has been a hectic weekend starting off with me meeting some friends for drinks on Thursday evening. Not the cleverest of ideas as we had the hen party for Princess T on the Friday but thankfully it was not until the afternoon so managed to get myself atleast a couple of hours sleep.

Friday was a mix of laughter, champagne, willy-straws, more champagne, pampering, happy tears, even more champagne and some nibbles. And this was just in the afternoon. In the evening the hens (without Princess T as she had a family dinner) went out for dinner at Graze, joined by one poor guy…but he held himself pretty good in the company of very chatty women. Impressive. After dinner we continued down to CQ and China One for more partying. Some of us were still going at 5 am. Another not so clever decision.

Saturday was wedding day. Me and Di, one of the other bridesmaids, went to the location in early afternoon to check that all was in order. Being Singapore of course it wasn’t. And it the middle of the set-up someone decided to open up the heavens and it started pouring down. When you have an outdoor location that is not exactly what you want. Thankfully it stopped in time for when the guests and the bridal couple arrived so all was well and good in the end.

The bride looked absolutely gorgeous. The groom very handsome. And the ceremony, it was just heartwrenching. Not a dry eye in the house. As it should be at weddings. As I, apart from being one of the bridesmaids, also was the official photographer that was a tough moment…trying to focus and take good pictures with tears in your eyes is not the easiest thing. They did turn out good though.  The dinner, the dancing and the afterparty was great but after having been out two nights in a row I gave up at 1 am. At that point my brain had done a complete shut-down and I could no longer feel my feet so the only thing I wanted was my bed, and a good nights sleep. Which I did get. Bliss.

On Sunday I met up with Ellen for brunch at Pump Room. The weather was perfect for sitting outside and it was just what I needed to get my energy back. Brunch was followed by an 1.5hrs balinese massage. Talking about feeling like you’ve been to heaven and back afterwards.

It has truly been a weekend filled with love, happiness and meeting of new wonderful people and I feel so blessed to have friends like T&T in my life – and it was such an honor to be there, sharing their special day!

Not home but still quiet

As per usual my Friday didn’t go as planned – Fx called so met up with him for a quiet dinner and a glass of wine at Hyatt before going to Borders for some browsing and shopping. Was home early though so it could still count as being a relaxing one.

Now I’m gonna sneak out of the house as they will come service the AC units and I cannot be bothered to be here. Rather be out in the sun. Yes, believe it or not…we do have sunshine today.

Yay!

More bubbly

Well, well…the quiet night in front of the TV that I had planned didn’t exactly turn out that way. Nicky called wanting to meet up for a drink so here we are, with bubbly in our hands chatting the night away.

Oh my, some days you sure feel that you are not 20 anymore. Yesterday was one of those. Was at the opening party for Burberry at Ion Orchard on Tuesday night. And what a party it was. People lining the red carpet (which was actually beige….) to spot celebrities…and there we came walking, was a very surreal feeling. But fun.

Once inside it was packed with people and the bubbly was flowing freely. The Creative Director of Burberry, Christopher Bailey, was there and the poor thing had to have his pics taken with almost everyone. Yes, us incluced. Of course. But guess it’s part of his job when going to events like this.

Afterwards me and Fx was to have dinner at Hyatt with one of his former colleagues and friends but we ended up getting a big part of the gang coming with us so instead of a quiet dinner it became a much bigger one. Kudos to the staff at Hyatt for arranging so we could have one of the private diningrooms. Lots of food, lots of drinks, lots of laughter. Brilliant night. Late night. And oh, did I suffer for it yesterday. But worth it. And am feeling a lot fresher today. There’s not much that a good nights sleep cannot fix. Now we have to gear up for the weekend, even though it will be a rather mundane one.

Ok, you should always try to see the positive side of things and that is what I’m trying to do in regards to the post below – I have so wanted to get the new 3GS but couldn’t really justify getting one but guess now I don’t have to do that. Justify it that is. So you see, there can be some good in the bad.

Until the phone incident my Saturday was brilliant. The gang went to a sneak preview of “Victor/Victoria” that is being set up here in Singers. The event was held at St. Regis and the dresscode was andro-chic and us being us we went all in for this one. As soon as we arrived we were surrounded by photographers wanting to take our pics and that is something this group never say no to, yes we are a bunch of cam divas. Cannot say I was surprised by this, the interest of the photogs, as we were among the few who had taken the theme to heart and really gone for it, and it was appreciated…apparently we ended up being the headpic for the article that was in the papers on Sunday. Am trying to get a copy of it and if I do I will scan it for you guys to see….until then, here are a few chosen ones from my album.
