January Round Up

So, as I said this 2013 will be based on monthly achievements review instead of having long term goals. Here's January round up

1) I survived the first month of working - it's super hectic though!

Netball practice, preparation for the student exchange program, rombakan jadual waktu, buku catatan rasmi sekolah, meetings and what nots. Am still so grateful that I am not a form teacher. Just so looking forward playing host for the Korean students next week. Here's the banner I design for the program

2) I got engaged!

Well, technically I was engaged almost 10 months ago after I said YES to a wedding proposal but since its the local custom to have an engagement ceremony. So, 26th January was my engagement party. And finally people for once will stop asking when am getting married. Sabarrr... nanti baru saya kasitau itu wedding date. Lain pula perasaan ni kalau almost off the market sudah. Ohou! Like my manager said, "You'll be breaking lotsa hearts in the music scene, banyak la budak band kecewa ni" - LOL

Here's some photos of the engagement party. Thanks to all for making it happen and those who were there to attend. These awesome photos was taken by Pastels & Cream team. Highly recommended to all, find them on facebook.
iPhone5 belongs to Flora, hehe. The cake is from Secret Recipe decorated with fresh flowers by yours truly. 

Felt so blessed to have lots of family members around. I just can remember being so sleepy that time. Gosh!
I am lovin' Mr Andre's shirt color more than my dress. Bought my dress at

Saw the fingerprint hearts idea on pinterest and utilise them on the program book.

those DIY crepe flowers also done via discovery on pinterest. I just love pinterest.  But the process of making it requires a lot of patience.

Chocopops by Pastels&Cream. And they design the tags for you as well. Love love love!
Those lovely cupcakes and chocopops were also by Pastels & Cream. Seriously, do hire them!

Oh yeah, cos smiling to the camera is too mainstream. So, as wedding date's announcement - jadi don't ask

Till then, have a good new month ahead ya!

Hi i'm Moung Wei Ling. One of your ex student in PCGHS, Penang in 2006 where you taught science in S4H.

Anyway, just realize that you are a Sabahan after all. I'm currently studying in UMS, Forestry final year and I LOVE SABAH so so much!! How are you now?

Unknown said...

Biology i mean. Not Science. And i see you mentioned me once in your blog also ^^

Joan said...

Hello Wei Ling..yes I think I remember your class. I didn't know that you are studying in UMS. Final year already. Time flies huh! Maybe we should meet up someday.

Unknown said...

Ya we should. Time does fly really fast. I'm currently in Penang right now for CNY holiday. Will only be going back to Sabah on the 25th. Anything you want from Penang?

Congratulations on your engagement btw =)
