Friends, LOVE MAG GETS MARRIED! 4 February 2013

I have very very very few childless girl friends, let alone single girl friends. Partly due to my age (*ahem*) where we’re all at the age where everyone is already married for years, and partly due to life stages – it’s difficult to be close friends when both of you are at very different life stages. This means I have maybe 2-3 single/childless friends that I hang out with and speak to… so they’re pretty special to me.

It also means I get a (very rare) chance to attend a wedding!!! Well, that is, until all our children grow up and get married, then I guess we’ll go through the next wave of weddings 😉

My very pretty and very sweet gf Magdalyn got married over the weekend 🙂 They met in the office, so I guess there’s something to be said about office shennanigans, bwahahahaha!! It was held at the Conrad, same place where my cousin Amanda got married a few years back. Memories 🙂

Outside the ballroom at Conrad. Dress by Jill Stuart, bag by Hermes, man candy from Australia.


Customised m&m’s. EEEEK!!!!!!


They had a silly photobooth, which I realise now is an AWESOME idea for a wedding. If you’re not married, consider getting one for yours! It helps guests loosen up, and the props are so cute. It means guests have a little personal momento to bring home, and you can chortle at how absurd your guests look 😉

Chris’ sign says “I put the ME in AWESO” 😉


Mine says “Single after 6PM”. His says “I’m M.B.A. Married But Available”. Point of pirate hat – unknown.


So we arrived royally late, at 8PM. Considering the wedding invite said 7:15 dinner, we were in a bit of a mad rush. But we had to put the kids to bed and I had to give Carter his bedtime breastfeed.. so the earliest we can get to a dinner is 8PM.

But, we were still the first people seated at our table! Chris was LOL’ing and wanted to take a photo of me being Nelly No Friends, with all the filled-up tables behind me 😉

Who farted?


Anyway, hop on over to Magdalyn’s blog to see lovely wedding photos.. whenever she gets round to uploading them after her fancypants honeymoon in the Maldives 😛

CONGRATULATIONS Magdalyn and Lips!! You guys are the sweetest and so nice to see true love exists. May God bless your marriage with happiness, love and laughter.

    Hehehehe!!!! Too funny “man candy from Australia”. The booth does sound like fun and the “da bomb” so cute! LOL!

    Love your dress!
    And I can’t understand why people don’t take the trouble to come to weddings by at least 8. I had my reception at 7 and I put on the invitation that dinner will start at 8pm (sharp and I’m not kidding). It worked… mostly.

      It’s pretty common in Singapore.. so I heard people generally will start the dinner 30-60 mins after what the invite says!
