The Fishy Therapy

Our first activity as hubby and wifey is… going fishing! ;D

Well not exactly catching fishes. It’s actually quite the opposite – the fishes “caught” us! Or at least our feet.

After a tiring (but exciting) wedding day, we both think we deserve a special treat so we headed to Kenko Reflexology Fish & Spa at Pavilion for a foot therapy, called the Fish Spa Therapy. It is not like any other foot therapies bcoz the masseurs are not human, but fishes – lots and lots of ‘em!

Cleansing my feet before entering the Fish Spa

As we sat on the cushions and dipped our feet inside the tank, the fishes swarmed our legs and began nibbling and pecking our feet. They look like hungry piranhas that haven’t ate for 10 days! But the fishes are toothless so there’s nothing to be worried about. The pecking and nibbling were not painful at all, but they were extremely ticklish that I felt macam nak tendang2 jer ikan tu…

Yum yumm… this guy’s feet tastes better than worms!

The fishes are called Garra Ruffa (sounds like Piranha-ish ey?) or also known as Doctor Fish. What they do is, they will nibble away the scaly and dead skin on your feet, and also ease the symptoms of skin conditions like psoriasis and abscesses (whatever that is). The nibbling process feels like micro-massage, and it promotes healthy blood circulation of the skin.

Here’s a short clip of the Doctor Fish that I managed to record:



If you’re in for something different, this is the place to go. It is definitely a unique experience. RM38 for 30 minutes is totally worth a try!

A day before my Wedding Day

Hey everyone, I’m married!! :D

Alhamdulillah, MZ and I sudah selamat di ijabkabul last Saturday night. Words can’t describe the happiness and contentment that I’m feeling now – it’s the bestest feeling I’ve ever felt (I’m sure you married people know that feeling too, huh!).

Anyway, I won’t go into detail about the ceremony just yet as I don’t have all the photos from start to the end, so lemme just show you the preparation pics a day before the wedding day.

A little sneak preview of what me and my sisters wore on that day…
The rest of the wedding photos, kena tunggu lepas majlis Reception yer kawan2 (Wedding photographer by Ikram Ismail).

Besides the bride (well, it’s my wedding so of course, right? ;p), this li’l boy was also the center of everyone’s attention on that night!

Flower boy?

Hariz now has a Pak Long! ;)


The Final Week

The day is getting nearer and nearer… and now there’s only 3 more days to our wedding day!

I can’t describe what I’m feeling at the moment. This bride-to-be is excited and anxious and frantic and nervous and feverish all at the same time, and.. kinda drowsy too (must be the medicines).

Yeap, I have runny nose and my eyes are kinda red and watery as a result of bergelumang dgn habuk2 selama 2 hari. Not good, not good. I know brides are supposed to have “enough rest and sleep” before the Big Day but in my case, bride or not, I still have to do some of the housework since there’s no one else yg bole diharapkan, except my mom and maid. But starting from today (hopefully), I can goyang kaki coz my grandma’s maid is finally here to help with the cleanings. I just hope I could squeeze some time for last-minute pampering (massage, pedicure and manicure) a day before the Big Day!

Anyways, besides cleaning the whole house, here’s the preparations for the final week:

Monday
- Dress-fitting at Kapas
– MZ and I had our last facials before the Big Day
– Montage preview at Manggis

Tuesday
- The landscape people came

Wednesday (today)
- Mr. A from Kapas came to my house for final dress-fitting
– appointment with Istana Budaya band to confirm about the list of songs

Thursday
- the canopy people arrive
- Mr. F (my dad’s friend, who’s the ID and also the sponsor for bilik pengantin) will start decorating the room
- Mr. A from Kapas will deliver my veil and selendangs
- Dress-fitting with Rizman Ruzaini for the reception dress at Dewan Perdana

Friday
- Mr. K and his team from Kapas will start doing the two pelamins, hantarans and other deco
- last-minute pampering (hopefully!)
- berinai

Saturday
- WEDDING DAY!

Btw, I have 2 baju for this Saturday’s event – supposedly, one is for nikah (white), and the other one is for sanding (off-white). Which means, right after akad, MZ and I will change to a different outfits for sanding. But now I’m not sure nak tuka2 or just wear satu baju jer for the whole ceremony bcoz my mom takut jadi kelam-kabut (what with my tudung and all). Should I, or should I not tuka2 baju? Has anyone experienced this kind of situation before…?



Food Tasting & Dress Fitting

I can’t believe this weekend will be the last weekend for me as a bachelorette. And then a week after that, I’ll be a Mrs! Ooohh…

Anyway, I can’t be spending too much time blogging now bcoz starting from today onwards I’ll be busier than before, so let the pictures do the talking.

12.30 noon – Food testing at Dewan Perdana

“Mmm…sedap2. Can I have summore?”

2.30pm – Dress fitting at Kapas.

Now this is the happiest trip ever to Kapas bcoz:

a) one of my bajus turns out to be nicer than I thought (seriously my mom and I were so worried about it before. Which is why I didn’t really blog about my dresses that much!), and
b) I asked Mr. A whether I should wear a corset and he said “No dear! You have a perfect figure already!”

Hee… that really made my day! ;D

(few days ago I received some remarks from some people saying I’m so kurus, and not slim. The way they said it was as if I was skeletal! Saba jela aku.. dulu masa gemok ngata2 gak. Skang dah slim down pon sama. It’s so aggravating coz it’s like whatever I do is not right, you know what I mean? But hey, as long I’m happy with the way I am then that’s what matters bcoz I’m the one who is living inside this body of mine. Why should I care about other people’s “concerns”, right? And most importantly, my husband-to-be loves the new me! I’m sorry if I sound a bit too emotional – blame the PMS – but I just can’t contain it anymore. Lemas la dengar isu kurus/gemok ni seriously!). There.



Trying on a selendang mock-up.


Hmm… I think I’ll go with the veil.

This is the baju for…
Actually, I’ll leave that to you to figure it out ;) It’s not fully finished btw.

Mr. K from Kapas will be coming to my house tonight to discuss about the pelamin, so I gotta run now!
