I've Never Been To Me

Now that my single days are numbered, I think about the thing I want to do before I get hitched. One thing I regret is not being able to travel like what I promised myself after college. Maybe it's because I've wasted 3 years of my life mourning a lost love that I guess was never mine after all. I should have channelled that bitterness into something worthwhile. Hay... I can never bring back time, can't I?
After 3 wasted years, I've finally met THE ONE. But I was too afraid to be away from him, I wanted to spend my everydays with him. Perhaps I'm too afraid that I might lose something that I know is real this time. And so I turned down all the invitations and opportunities to travel inside or outside the country if I'm not going to be with him...
Anyway, enough of the sad story. These are my places I've always been fascinated with. The Acropolis in Greece, Christ Redeemer in Brazil, The Taj Mahal in India, Angkor in Cambodia, Kremlin/St. Basil in Russia, Eiffel Tower in France, Pyramids of Giza in Egypt, and St Peter's Basilica in Italy.

I may not be able to visit these places during my remaining single days, heck, I may even die and still not be able to travel to these countries, but one thing I realized is that I will never put my dreams on hold for anyone except me.

Happy Days are Here Again!

For those who cares and are wondering... No more cold feet here, it's getting warmer now. Nico and my friends made me wear thermal socks (LOL.) Why did I ever think of those things? What the hell was I thinking? Too much drama. Ugh! I can't handle that, at least not now.

Since we've decided to push through with the wedding, I've ask (read: lambing) my dad to shoulder the venue that I have in mind. Among the venues in the south, it's the only place I really really liked. At first he declined (hmp! pakipot) but how can he resist the charm of his only daughter? Of course eventually he agreed. He needs to, he doesn't have a choice because that's what I want. And whatever I want, I'll insist on getting (oops, that's the spoiled rotten brat he raised!) Nico doesn't really like the idea but when I told him the good news, he was more than willing to accept it (and added if he can also give us our own house and lot.)

The venue? Fernbrook Gardens, Victorian 1. We've just booked it along with one of its accredited caterer, Juan Carlo The Caterer, yesterday. We're given pretty damn good deals and freebies. I'm satisfied. Nico is excited. Happy couple. Happy days are here again. Cheers!
