the pix of my engagement arent ready still but i have some pix of the hantaran. it was 60 percent made my urs truly though the final flower arrangement was made by mum’s friend. i personally think that it is cheaper to use fresh flowers. mine were simple but i like ’em nevertheless.. hehehe

somehow, after being veto-d previously, mum has agreed to let me “do” the flower setup of hantaran for my engagement , with one condition, her friend will be coming over to help n arrange it. 😛

i was a lil bored over the weekend and i had a few fresh flowers taken from a wedding the night before, so i ended up trying it out once again.

first pix -first attempt using pink african daisy aka gerbera, on an empty plate

second pix – second attempt using pink african daisy aka gerbera + pink roses, with white petal in the plate.

third pix – used up some mata kucing fruits( teehee..) and put it in to see how it looks like with something in the plate. (to be replaced with chocs on the “day” ).

Managed to scout around for the merisik ring and engagement ring. Almost hit the ceiling when I saw engagement ring that cost about 2k +++.

Personally, I’d rather have a simple engagement ring and a nicer(or bigger) wedding ring (esp the one from the diamond district). I guess malay tradition is different from the western tradition where they’d get the biggest rock for engagement and  just a wedding band for their wedding

i kinda have the rough idea on what i want for my engagement ring. and no, it aint gonna cost me a bomb, definitely 🙂

Sis and I just wanted to check Nilai 3 and what they have got to offer the other day. Didn’t expect that I would actually ended up buying the materials for my engagement. LOL but I did, and its in one of the pics above.

Its pretty cheap (mum says its super cheap) but I dun mind. Cos im not gonna spend much on the engagement anyway. Just as long as it’s simple and nice. It’s gonna be a plain top and the kain will have some sort of a songket design. At the moment, planning to make it into a fitted baju kurung.
