Disney Princess Wedding Collection

May 9, 2007

Every little girl harbours the dream of being a disney princess. Throw in the typical ingredients of your magical fairytale plot: the kindhearted beautiful protagonist, the handsome prince and the happily ever afters and you get a recipe for a warped perception of romance. There are only that many princes to go around anyway, and after awhile, happily ever after tends to happily never after.

For that BIG day of your life however, Disney promises to whisk you to the land of magical fairy godmothers, flying carpets and glass slippers, prince charming not included. It’s a brilliant idea really, which makes you wonder why they never thought of it earlier. Afterall, who better to endorse wedding gowns than the Disney Princess?

Here are a few of my favourites from the collection:
Belle
This gorgeous layered piece is probably most similar to Belle’s gown in beauty and the beast !

Belle 2
Belle inspired with rosettes, in champagne

Sleeping Beauty
Simple, sweet, elegant, just like Sleeping Beauty.

Well, my favourite princesses are actually Ariel and Jasmine, but find both collections a tad lacking in capturing the playful and colourful spirit of the 2 princesses.

check the rest out Disney Bridal

Dreamy

Sembawang Park
If i could paint a picture of a perfect day… It would be a nice airy morning, a cottage by the sea, and just me walking on the nice white sand along the beach, slowly feeling the warmth seeping into your toes from the sand.

mmm. I’m dreamy. and content. never been so for awhile actually, I have sorta come to understand its futile to fight against yourself, to yearn and wish that things are different. Just… go with the flow and live while you’re doing so.

And I’m glad the boy & I are good together again. The past 2 days have been a lovely traipse accross Singapore, foodie hunt to Blooie’s Roadhouse at Siglap, Beef Kway Teow at Geylang’s Lorong 9, frolicking at the peaceful Sembawang Park, borrowing books & comics from Queenstown’s library. And me going all giggly and out of character last night playing the dice game to my half a pint of Stella Artois, t’was fun, the bf has nice friends.

I finished Tuesdays with Morrie, a heartwarming book, that shares many pertinent life lessons. But I find Morrie’s philosophies on life a tad too good to be true, to me at least. Although I suppose, when you are staring at death in the face your priorities in life become totally different. I am but just your regular cynical urbane soul, filling up my life with material needs and wants, and always in pursuit of something better ahead. Lately however, life has slowed to a really comfortable pace ,owing to my lack of employment.

As usual, I’m getting restless and would love to be interning like the rest of my college mates. BUT for the fact that I have eased into this carefree lifestyle. The tension of opposites, as so aptly named in the book. But not to fret, yes, I’ll definitely keep to my promise of continuing to apply for positions and be enthusiastic about what I’m offered.

Expiry Date

May 3, 2007

Maybe all relationships have an expiry date, and mine has probably run its course.
am really quite tired of all the excuses, reasons, EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES or so he puts it.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah

That felt good.

“i’ve alot to tell you actually, you sure you want to sleep?”
Am 1 zonked out girl. Chatted till 4am w jh last night cos he had some interesting news to share. =)Well, am really happy for him. It’s interesting how there are so many similarities in his story to mine.Maybe he can look at us and see where he’ll be in 1 year’s time. hur hur.

And the jqsr relationship turned 1 on labour day !!
We cycled at the ECP in the rain. Which sounds a tad romantic but not really, it is annoying when you are sharing the path with a hundred other cyclists, and, with the raindrops splattering into your eyes. The fun bit was clambering up the sandbar to enjoy the seabreeze, which I had abit of problems trying to get up there really. They never seemed so high when I was younger !!

On our way to Blooie’s
Dinner was at Blooie’s Roadhouse, this breezy little australian pub tucked in a residential alcove in Siglap. Lovely little place this was, serves yummilicious huuuuge burgers and other western fare. We shared Clam Chowder, NZ mussels simmered in white wine and capsicums and a Cheese Bacon Mushroom Burger. Oh, plus a lychee margarita and a hoegarden each. *smacks lips* .
Marg and Hoegarden

Then we caught Spiderman 3. Too many bad guys in the story methinks, Spidey’s spreading himself too thin. All in all, pretty much an enjoyable day.
