I love fonts. I used to like collect fonts and know them by name when I was actively designing back in college. When I was given the task to do a backdrop and photobooth for Wei Yenn’s wedding, I was so excited! hohohoh. Wedding fonts, will so determine the tone of the wedding. Guess choosing the right one is a lot of work
Here are some WIP sample fonts for Wei Yenn to choose from
It is also Easter weekend. Which means I can finally indulge in food. I think I’m getting used to this eating vege thing. Maybe I shall continue doing it. Until i loose some fats -_- I’ve been running every weekend to help with the process. Don’t think it is working that much because I am still fat. I should really start doing it daily.
Can’t believe it is already APRIL!
Let’s recap what happened since January 2012.
Owh I went to Singapore with Lea to watch Wicked! It was an awesome weekend. The show was great. We stayed at a hostel. But too bad no kwai Lo for Lea to cuci mata! We walked around SG. Ate, drank, shopped. A week later, Lea and I went to catch AJ Rafael in concert. It was awesome watching my fav Youtube singer perform IRL. 17th January also marked the day I spent RM700 on a flight ticket to see my Lainey Boo in Sydney. As usual, we also went to Taiping for CNY at the end of the month. Met up with my crazy noisy family Pictured below is Ah Boy making funny faces for my camera! Such a fun bunch.
Feb… what happened in feb? I’m not too sure (Digs old instagram photos)….
Met Lainey boo who came down for CNY. We had yaya breakfast and cake. OWH, I went to Singapore again to teman Sidney make some big life decisions. Met Nad for lunch. Saw the Lumia MRT station.Then I had an eye infection again FML laa srsly. I made a scarf out of an old T shirt. It was so funky and nice. Felt such a sense of achievement. I guess I’m very much of a creator. I love creating something out of nothing. like cake, or even a scarf! Maybe that’s why i love taking photos of things. So that I can keep. I’m such a hoarder. also baked FAILED rainbow cake. It was too weird tasting. I don’t know why. I guess cos its dry.
Went to Changkat with the girls. As usual it was an awesome night out. OWH, I made super awesome Red Velvet cupcakes the other day. The cheese was pricey as hell, but the cake turned out awesome. Maybe I shall switch the mascarpone cheese to cream cheese frosting. That sounds cheaper The batter looked like real blood. Quite gross looking. but i like it! So colourful! Can I make Yellow Velvet, Green Velvet, Blue Velvet and other colours too? It would be so awesome! OK SET I think the next round i make this cake, I’m making many many colours! Won tickets to Kina Grannis, another youtube star i like been Stir-frying a lot lately. Quite yums if i must say Ive also learnt that i LOVELOVELOVE BIG’s Walnut Brownie with ice cream. IT IS SO AWESOME! Made my photobook and it arrived. It took SO long to finish, but it was worth it. All my photos are finally getting printed, some way…I also washed my car in March! It is such an achievement ok. I never wash my car! Lavina came back for a while. Only to let us know she’s migrating to Australia That country stealing more of my friends. Well at least TK is still here. Only until he migrates too #iDieAloneInMalaysia
Anyway, I think that’s enough. That’s more writing than all the 3 months put together. LOL. See ya!
Not that i’m going to get married anytime soon….Just planning. I always watch Discovery Home and Health, David Tutera, read designer blogs, watch movies and always come across ideas and stuff liddat for parties and weddings. I always tell myself, I want to do that someday….and now, I will list them down. Just in case I need it…lols.
I mean you may think im crazy…but should I get married one day, this handbook will come in handy don’t ya think? All thought of and just a reminder lah…I mean people say this is a very important day of my life…then if we have like one year to plan, where got enuff time??? hahahaha.
Well, this is a working list:) should be changed when needed:)
I will play Johann Pachelbel – Canon in D Major for my wedding… Hopefully Louanne will play for me! hahahahhaa…well, unless you’d wanna be one of my bridesmaids. HAHAHA. Well I only know one classical musician, so you can play for me lah. Cheap price ok?
The walking back/out part, maybe like Hans Zimmer’s Cry…the part where it builds up…damn nice!
Speaking of music, maybe have a live band at the dinner Anyone wanna audition for my wedding dinner? Must play all my favourite songs. Which I shall list down one day. Songs for my wedding (there are loads of wedding songs on Youtube by independant artists! Ok, now too early to start biying those songs from iTunes….)!

Do send me recommendations!
From Friends’ Chandler and Monica’s wedding, I saw how they had disposable camera on each table for the people to take wacky pictures of themselves. I want a disposable camera on each table too:)
Contrary to how usual Malaysian weddings are, where they just sit, I will ensure that i have place cards for seating with names and seat people who RSVP, so that my guests won’t have to like sit in awkward moments with strangers that they don’t know.
Of course, I must have cupcakes for my wedding. White ones, swirly maybe with colourful (depending on the theme maybe) sprinkles. Well design wise, can be changed lahh. But, I need to have cupcakes along with my 5 tier wedding cake. It has to be like so nicely done. If its too expansive, I shall make my own 😀 (budget!)
Owh, I want my flower girls (if any) to carry cupcake crystal bags (From Sex and the City Movie!). so cute! My flower girls don’t need to throw flowers, maybe confettis! hahahaha!
My hair will not be in a bun, please remind self NOT to tie hair in bun! hahaha. Maybe just leave it as it is.
I want it to be outdoors like in a beach :), but then again, we live in Malaysia and I’m catholic…so have to marry inside the church lah. Maybe add fake plants and flowers everywhere to make it look outdoorsy! lols
I also want like a lot of photogs taking photos.
Wedding Dress….still haven’t decided. Maybe like a decent one fro church and a slutty one for the dinner. HAHAHAA. Hopefully I will be size 10/12 by then so that I don’t look too fat?
My friends all should wear tasteful formalish/summerish/dresses. Dress Code: Bright colours/flowery prints. 😀 flowy and really awesome dresses! hehe. Men, wear black tie suit! but then again, once again, we’re living in Malaysia…
Wedding theme colours? Pink or Green. or both. Pink and green does well no? Or maybe just colourful, as that would be so me. Like bright green, pink, blue, yellow, those kinda colours: ) if it matters here in Malaysia with no seasons, I would like a Summer Wedding! 😀
Wedding invitations has to be really fun! I remember seeing a couple of design shows with great ideas! But this has to be highly dependent on the theme 😀 But whoever has addresses anymore? HAHAHA Maybe an email wedding invitation to a flash website where they get to RSVP on the website straightaway? I guess all my friends will emails right? HAHAHA
Website: Wow, this website must like have a lot of things in it. Must be set up very early in the wedding process to document all the things, well for people who are overseas and can’t attend my wedding, can view the process…. Like RSVP system. Picture Gallery. Blog. Wedding Registry. Music recommendations from friends. What else?
Who shall I invite for my wedding? Preferably a small sized wedding. But then again, im sure must invite all my extended families all. Ok, if you want in on my wedding, please comment! hahahahaha.
My wedding favours won’t be like cake -_- or like sweets -_-…It has to be something that they can keep and will always remember the wedding 😀
I have a couple of ideas:
A small bucket (like steel kind)/basket/box with loads of knick knacks in it.
A thank you card must be included, preferably name card sized where it will include our contacts, website address where they can view pictures once they’re up.
A “I attended Karen & husband’s name’s wedding.” stickers. lols.
Place card holders that they can take back as a wedding favor…
Maybe a fortune cookie?
I know in this part of the world, wedding registry is like non existent. BUT, I will have a wishlist/Wedding Registry. on my website and people who want to buy me gifts (which is a must, thank you) can choose from. Of course, I will choose a wide range of price for those who can afford 😀 hahahaha. If not Ang Pow also can lah. Can Maybank2u to me to save Ang Pow packets. lols
A rehearsal dinner? Well, not really practiced here in Malaysia. But I do want to have close family and friends for a dinner a few days before the wedding to just sit and chat, because you know how during weddings, you don’t really get to do much:)
Disclaimer: Karen is NOT getting married anytime soon. Just planning ahead. Just in case I decide to get married:) hahahahaha
So last week was omg, fashion show after fashion show. I took loads of pictures with my lousy digital camera. But turned out better than what we did in previous fashion shows. Sitting at the photog place helps to take good photos, that’s one thing I learnt.
This monday I was sick. heachache until wanna die. plus period. no a good combi. Tuesday morning also got “attacked” by the brainache. Today also a bit brainachey. Why oh why must my brain ache?
OWH, GREAT NEWS! I CAN NOW GRADUATE!!!!
My certs have been confirmed. I graduate with Cum Laude. I graduate with Xue Zhen also!!! *jumps with joy* At first the HELP registrar said, omg, you’re not recieving honors!! I was like WAAAAATTEEEFAAAKK! So sad ok, imagine of I did not get honors. Life would be hard. All my hard work of studying has been dang dang thrown down the drain. So I emailed the guy in charge, CC to everyone above him. wtf, he didn’t reply, but his boss from US did.
To Elaine, thanks for that reply. I really appreciate it and you:)
So if you’d like to crash my graduation, its on the 19th of April 2009 at shangrila KL. 2pm 😀 I accept gifts in cash. muahahahahah.
