100 days of marriage!

I just realised that the frequency of my posts has been reduced to one a month since the month I got married ya Allah what is this!

Anyway, so much has happened and I haven’t been able to take a breather yet. Since I’m squeezing in time to write this post, it shall be point-form until I have time to write a proper post, which is dunno when. Hahaha

  1. March: Treated our bridesminah and groomsmat to a seafood lunch at a kelong.
  2. March: Had our first staycay on my birthday weekend at Village Hotel Changi.
  3. April: Second honeymoon – Batam aje. Hahahaha.
  4. April: Applied for a rental house to HDB through the PPHS scheme and got ourselves a little 3-room flat within 3 weeks!
  5. May: Moved out of my in-laws and shifted to our new rental flat.
  6. May: Finally tried sugaring lol
  7. May: Applied for a health insurance for myself and topping up my parents’ insurance with riders.
  8. May: Attended a wedding (3 weddings in one day actually!) for the first time as a married couple.
  9. May: Going to attend our first meeting with an ID company this weekend insyaAllah.

So yesterday was our 100th courtship monthsary. Coincidentally, it also happened to be our 100th day of marriage! That’s quite a milestone. We had planned to go out on a date almost the whole day. But after eating 3 wedding food last Saturday, I woke up with mild diarrhoea on Sunday morning. All plans down the drain. We ended up spending the whole day at home in our PJs instead, watching movies and eating junk food. Nowadays, staying home can feel nicer than going out. Either age is catching up, or this is just the reality of married life. Don’t need to go out to go dating anymore. Can just dating on the bed. HAHAHAHA

Wife’s Bites: 5 Things I Learned After 2 Months of Marriage

I will find time to write vendor reviews soon, provided I still remember what happened on my wedding day hahaha. But for now, I feel the need to consistently pen down my thoughts and emotions before it fades or evolve and I forget how I was feeling at each point of time.

Alhamdulillah, now that I have been staying with my husband at my in-laws’ for 6 weeks, we are more ‘settled’ and have established stable daily and weekly routines or schedules. Like we know how often to do laundry, how often to visit my parents, how often to go out on date nights, how often to eat out or eat dinner at home, how to handle our finances etc.

Anyway, here are 5 things I have learned so far from marriage.

  1. Love is a choice, not a feeling.

Wife’s Bites: 4 weeks of marriage

First post as a wife! Alhamdulillah H and I have been married for almost a month now. I have been thinking about what to write in my first #WifesBites post. Should I talk about the wedding, the honeymoon, vendor reviews, married life? Well since I’m good at talking about my feelings, I shall write about my feelings from the nikah day till now.

The Nikah
As everyone knows, I’ve been really chillax all the way. So I kinda mentally prepared myself to get super emotional on the nikah day itself, or maybe even go into panic mode, just in case, you know, my emotions only decide to come out from the darkness at the last minute.

Bride’s Bites: Less than 24 hours

Hi ladies. I actually have one more #MarriageBites post to write, but no time already hahha. InsyaAllah in 12 hours time, I would be already awake waiting for my MUA to dress me up in my nikah outfit. I have enjoyed every single moment writing here about this journey as a BTB blogger. Thank you all for directly and indirectly influencing my decisions on how to prepare for this wedding and marriage through your comments and your own posts. Rest assured I will be back writing, but as Wife’s Bites hehehe.

Please make dua for me!

Bride’s Bites: 11 more days

Decided to write this while I’m in the mrt because these few days, I simply have no time to do anything other than planning for the wedding and honeymoon. It’s been batshit crazy busy. Can’t believe I’m getting married next weekend!

Anyway, today marks our first engagement anniversary yay! 10 days ago, we also celebrated our 8 years of courtship. H actually surprised me with the most perfectly romantic picnic set up ever. It was all by @picneeds, of course. I couldn’t get over how lovely it was. To be honest, I kinda predicted it. I actually wanted to book picneeds last year for his birthday, but they were fully booked. I had been looking through all their pretty works but the one that was done for me, is one of the best!

Last weekend, we had a final meeting with our GroomsMats and BridesMinahs. We recce-ed three different locations that we’ll be covering for the wedding. H and I also managed to run errands the whole day last Sunday. Super productive, but super tiring. #wheregottimeforpantang

I was just telling H that my feelings about this wedding have been evolving over the weeks/months. First I was dreading it, then I got a bit more excited and tried to put more effort, then I was back to feeling like I can’t wait for it to be over, and right now I’m just more or less on tawakkal mode.

Most of the other little little stuffs are settled. Only left with finalizing the itinerary and sending them out to the vendors, and playlists! There’s also a little bit of honeymoon booking to do and packing. Then we’re ready to kahwin!
