Today I will be sleeping all by myself in Birmingham ) : Had to come over here for a LMS show at the Birmingham Hippodrome.
Ok la .. Some people might call it drama, other people might say “over” but for those who are in the same situation will understand how I feel. Now mind you, I’m not saying I feel like dyin without my other half – I’m just saying I will be alone today & tomorrow. No one to annoy .. eerr talk to I mean .. hehe ..Boring Boring Boring .. So I took some time to walk around the city to do some exploring ( since I was alone and bored )
The Radisson Hotel I’m staying at is not all that. It looked much nicer online .. much much nicer!! I mean, for what I paid – it’s not all that. The air conditioning keeps blowing cold air despite me meddling it. Even the hotel guy’s couldn’t fix it! seesh! Next, there is no power plug near the bed. So I can’t lie on the bed and use my lappy. ANNOYING! Then, the TV – lousy only with a few channels. Next– the whole floor smells of cigi!! Lastly – I arrived at about 2.15 but was told my room won’t be ready till 3pm!!Uugghhh! Hhmm ,note to self : never book this hotel again!
Anyways, some pics ( :

So we have been looking for a nice ivory suit for DD for the church ceremony. At first we decided to buy it but then – will he ever wear a white suit again? NO! So he decided to rent it. Last Saturday, we went to 3 different places looking for suits hoping to find something – St.Albans, Watford and also BlueWater Mall. Although we had appointments set up to try suits but everywhere we went they didn’t have DD’s size!! UUGGHHHH !!! Everything was too short! ISH! Irritating.. yes.. You would assume at least 1 shop would have trousers for a 6 footer. But NO. Anyways, we still managed to see something we really like in a shop in St.Albans. Hopefully next Saturday, he can try the full suit and book it. Another thing can be crosses from the list! Its all about the list people!! Haha ..
Coming back to BlueWater Mall – I was really super excited that we were going there but to much disappointment, it SUCKED! It really wasn’t all that. It was 2 floors – with your normal high street shops. That’s it! I mean, it did look nice from outside with all the water fountains and all but for all the hype it got from everyone - it totally didn’t impress me at all ) : I would say MidValley is a million times BETTER!!! I have nothing else to say about it cept that that only thing I liked about that mall was the hotdog I had.
OhOh .. My sister called to say that the wedding dress just arrived. I need to go get my fitting done. YEY!! Cant wait! One by one, everything is falling into its place <3

I can’t believe Patrick Swayze passed away last night. He was only 57 years old but pancreatic cancer took him away. The world has lost another good actor. It feels abit weird for me because only 2 days ago me and DD was watching Ghost again on tele , and no matter how many times I have watched it before ; it was still funny! But I personally think that the thing that made him big was Dirty Dancing! I mean; how can anyone forget that movie? It was the “it” movie at that time – and some might even say now. Until now people try and do the flying jump. Hhmmm .. haha ..Maybe I shud try it on our wedding day ?!! ...eeerrrr NOT!
It just got me thinking about life and death again. Our purpose as humans in this world.
I guess no one ; no matter how rich , how gorgeous , how bad , how good ; NO ONE ESCAPES FROM DEATH! So we have got to make every memory the best memory till then. Every memory, everything we do have to be treated like it’s the last.

So as I was browsing; I found this:
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.(Corinthians 13:4-8)
David mentioned that this is the new happy clappy version. He posted The King James’s version on my facebook wall.
"Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away."
One day I shall write something myself ..

Although I have not blogged for the past 4 day, so many things have happened. Saturday went well at my sisters; DD dad, mum and Yaz (who was only there as the driver – hehe) came over to talk about last minute wedding prep. We explained to him more about the Hindu culture and also about the ceremony; He then explained to us about how it’s done originally in Nigeria and their customs. Did you know that in Nigeria, the groom’s side pays for everything including the dowry!! hahaha .. DD’s dad did mentioned that I saved him ALOT of money.. ((=DD and I are more independent that way; we saved for everything and we are fine with it. It was good fun as we sat there on the table; talking, eating and laughing ( : Malaysian style ..
I also managed to sneak a long email to my bestie. Haha .. That email contained all sorts of things from love to friendship to hate to trust. I miss my bestie!!
What else: oh oh we managed to buy a box huge enough to fit all the cards, the scrolls and all the extra stuff to be sent back home. One less headache to think about.
I also managed to finalise my dress and gonna buy it today .. *GRIN*
Work : hhmm ..nuthin to update cept that Jason from Australia left the company ) :

We have already done everything that needs to be done from our end, now it’s all left to YOU.
I realised that recently I have been talking in my own cryptic language with the “oh what am I going to do?”, “I need to move”, “there is more to life “and all the poems too but this is exactly how I feel (and I know I don’t give out the details). HHhhhhhhmmmm .. A little bit confused, unsure about a few things BUT I am happy. Very very very happy – and it’s all just getting better and better.
On another note ; I am dreaming of Penang Assam Laksa ): Bastid!!!** No No .. I didn't make this ; picture from tourmalaysia.com
