My Wedding Series: ROM

Disclaimer: Some will call Registratration of Marriage (ROM) as engagement but technically you are legally married because you already signed the papers. I will still be known as Miss Boey because married Asian women do not take after their husband's surname. As in my social security card or passport or license will not be "Alicia Lee". Same goes to Malays, Indians and other races in my country. 

We held our ROM on 10th April 2011 (Sunday) so this is old news but I just wanna share with you what we have gone through.When I asked my husband which 1 of all 3 events in our wedding series does he like the most, his answer was the same as mine which is our registration day. It's less stressful and hectic compared to our pre-wedding photoshoot and wedding day. My complexion was at its best on our ROM too. Oh by the way, ROM stands for registration of marriage or some say paper marriage.

I will break this topic into sub-sections to guide those who are planning for their ROM. Besides, feel free to drop some questions. Note that I will only answer questions that require hands on experience or my personal knowledge and not those you can find answers on Google. Same goes to all of my entries.

Note: Other rules may apply depending on you or your spouse's condition such as divorced, parents deceased, non-citizen etc. Please consult registrar beforehand.

My Wedding Series: Pre-wedding album

Hello my dear readers,

This is the first post of my wedding series where I will share with you what I have gone through in my marriage process. My first step was signing a pre-wedding photoshoot package. I have no idea whether they have this kind of "ritual" in western countries but we Asians love to take pre-wedding photos before our wedding.

But first of all I would like to share some of hubby's little brother's shots in 2010. We went to alot of places such as Esplanade, temple, mosque, church, random street around Georgetown, Batu Ferringhi beach and Tropical Spice Garden.

Pulau Redang: Day 3

A very good early morning yo!

I ain't got much to share for the last day as we spent the whole day traveling back home. I remembered we woke up around 5am in the morning and breakfast was specially prepared for those checking out early. We had ours at 6am.

Here's my simple breakfast.

Pulau Redang: Day 2

Good morning readers!

It's 7am as we strolled along the beach with a beautiful sunrise.Then we had our breakfast at 8am and enjoyed the rest of the day. You can read about Day 1 here.

We love the sunrise.

Pulau Redang: Day 1

Before I start, allow me to credit my hubby's colleagues for some of the pictures below. I'm sure they understand what happened to our DSLR and wouldn't mind me stealing some pictures tee hee... Anyway, it's all for info-sharing purposes only.

Around mid July this year, hubby unexpectedly took me on a vacation again. He kept complaining he was broke after Taiwan and Korea which was just a few months gap but surprisingly he said we are going on a getaway again. It was just a local trip to Pulau Redang which is located at East Malaysia, Terengganu to be exact but I was quite happy. This was my 2nd time to this island. First time was when I was about 14 years old with my parents and dad's diving group (besides a Taekwando master, dad is a diver too).

Korea: Day 8

Good morning! We woke really early today at 4:00am in the morning and were given an uncut roll of sushi (I believe the Korean version is called kimbap) with a gaseuos can drink for breakfast. Then we slept for 2.5hours. Why is it the international airport had to be so far from Seoul?

  My so obvious sleepy face!

Korea: Day 7

Rise and shine! It's the second last day of my honeymoon and also last day of sightseeing. Today is a cherry blossom day as we will stroll along Yeouido cherry blossom street. The road was closed for only a week and we were so lucky to made it in time. Sakura sighting was the highlight of my trip because that's what we paid so much for and what spring is all about.

We left our hotel around 7am in the morning and it was very misty with ultra tiny raindrops that made us feel like having natural facial. Never get to experience this feeling before.

Korea: Day 6 (Jeju Island)

Rise and shine! Good morning, Jeju!

We had a fun time yesterday. Today we will embark on a rapid tour around Jeju. We will start off with the sunrise peak then the filming spot of All In drama then cultural village, mysterious road and end with dragon head rock. But there was a surprise for us at night courtesy of the tour company!

We woke up around 6am in the morning. Here's the view of the town outside our window. The buildings were so low that we could see the ocean.

Korea: Day 5 (Jeju Island)

We woke up at 6:05am and had breakfast at 7am. The hall wasn't as big as in hotels in previous posts but it was the prettiest. We will be "shopping" the whole morning then lunch then fly to Jeju island, the Hawaii of the East just like Hokkaido. It's true Jeju share alot of similarities with Hawaii; strong winds, strong waves for surfing, has a volcano, Tikiman (Dol Hareubang) and very cultural. One thing missing is hula dancers.

  Omo...the deco counter just before entering the breakfast hall is so pastel. So Korean-ish!
