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!

Kari Callin auditioning for America’s got talent 2009 – what a fantastic voice!!

 

 

Someone else who also got judged by her looks, atleast in the beginning of her career, is one of my absolut fav singers of all time – Barbra Streisand – and the song Kari chose (from the musical “West Side Story”) has also been sung by Ms. Streisand and personally I think this is one of the best performances of the song.

Gone too soon

I could not believe the news when I heard it this morning, thought I heard wrong when they said it on the radio.

He might have been one strange character but there was nothing strange about the influence he had on changing pop music. He was an amazing artist, someone who really knew how to put on a show, always surprising and in the forefront – I know first hand, I’ve been standing right below the stage at one  of his concerts. A magic experience.

He will be missed by many, but his music will live on for generations to come…

RIP Michael Jackson

Like A Comet
Blazing ‘Cross The Evening Sky
Gone Too Soon

Like A Rainbow
Fading In The Twinkling Of An Eye
Gone Too Soon

Shiny And Sparkly
And Splendidly Bright
Here One Day
Gone One Night

Like The Loss Of Sunlight
On A Cloudy Afternoon
Gone Too Soon

Like A Castle
Built Upon A Sandy Beach
Gone Too Soon

Like A Perfect Flower
That Is Just Beyond Your Reach
Gone Too Soon

Born To Amuse, To Inspire, To Delight
Here One Day
Gone One Night

Like A Sunset
Dying With The Rising Of The Moon
Gone Too Soon
