This is about getting married legally and not the wedding reception.

Let's cut things short, if you are getting married in Malaysia and you are a Malaysian citizen, there are a few things you'll have to take note! 

1. What is your religious?
Your religious can actually opens up more options and choices on the location you want to get married. If you want to marry in a church, or in a temple, that's totally doable. 

2. Hiring solemnizer out to other location to hold a wedding ceremony?
Yes, it's doable too. You will need someone to You can actually hire an officiant to your wedding ceremony like beach/ hotel etc, to officiate your marriage. 
However, it cost about RM200 to RM700. (We are not sure how and why but we paid RM700 and did not get receipt on it, moral of the story always ask for receipt)

Steps by steps guide: 

1. Check your ID.

One of the rule is first check your registered address on your ID. Reason being, you have to register at the JPN under your registered address before you register at the place that you want to take an oath at. 
Eg. My address on ID is in KL, my fiance address ID is in Selangor, we want to get married somewhere in KL. He will have to go to the JPN in Selangor, get the approval letter from JPN Selangor and send the approval letter to JPN KL and make a registration there. This is because we want to get married in Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur, hence, no extra trip needed. 

So imagine if you are from Penang and your husband from Ipoh, both your ID address still remain the old address and you are getting married in Kuala Lumpur.... I suggest you change your ID address to save the trip. 

2. Check your nearest JPN (Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara).

Filling in the form they gave you and pay RM30! 
You will need one copy of:
a. Couple’s Identification Card
b. Nominated witness’s Identification Card (2 witnesses)
c. Malaysian Passport size (32mm x 38mm) colour photograph of couple

3. Make an appointment / arrange a date!

After all the documentary work done, you will have to wait for 14 days. It's to prove that you both are single and if there's no objection, you will now have to go back to get your "you can now marry" confirmation and make an arrangement on the date you want to tie the knot!
The arrangement of solemnization should be within 6 months.

Eg. you want to get married and have your dinner reception on the same date, then you will have to make sure to get the documentary work done no more than 6 months before. It's not good to be early sometimes! Haha.

"I am pretty sure the title should be the largest outdoor Zumba is back"

I am not sure how many of you are into Zumba, but I am definitely saying yes to new and fun idea! 
Last year, Watsons held their largest outdoor Zumba and garnered about 5.3k of people. Heard it was even a Malaysia record. 


I believe a lot of people love running marathon for a lot reasons.
Some for the sake of the medal collection, some for meeting new people, some for the sake of running itself. And Watsons held the largest outdoor Zumba last year and me and Pui Yee went for fun, and the free t-shirt too *coughssscoughs

Last year shenanigans, us eating banana. 
Fun fact: eating banana before work out can minimize chances to get muscle cramp. 

After eat banana you can split like banana.
Just kidding. Try at your own risk.

That was like so 2016 and we had lots of fun.
This year, Watsons wanted to make it even BIGGER. They forecast there'll be 10k of people participating, and let's create a new record!

This year, their line up are like Leng Yein from last year coming back bolder, together with Malaysia’s top DJ Chuckies & Whackboii and her sister Leng Sean!

Some of the instructors are like Deno and Alex from Malaysia, Henry from USA and Richard (ohsohandsome... ) from Canada and...

Dennis Yin will be the host for this year!

Kit Mah, the face and ambassador for Watsons.

The price for this year ticket is RM98 and it comes with a RM30 cash voucher.
Best thing is it comes with medal and micro dry tee too!!! (HUURAY for those tee and medal collector) lol. If you purchase with any participating brand then you are entitled a 20% off... which is like..

RM78.40! #mathschampion

Ok, last but not least, see you there on 21st of October ok! Lets Zumba together!

"Do not belittle these women." 

Dear mom, 

I was told by many that I was tough, or stubborn (sometimes they have different names), I have a lot of thanks to give you. And this picture moved me a little when I looked at it, it just made me feel so proud of us, even though at one time I was not. I am glad to look back on how far we've come along given our hardships in life. 

Dear mom, we were once so close, we talked about almost everything, I would be there sitting on the cement floor, helping you with sewing. You, rushing for your part time work sewing all these tags for clothes just to make a few ten cents, paying off my school bills and all the unnecessaries that I lied about. 

Dear mom, me and Leon were talking about you, we are laughing at all the little adventures we had. I was so young but I am so smart, I helped you a lot when you got into trouble. Remember the time you got your car tire stuck in the drain?

Dear mom, we were once so close, and then we were not. Our family financial crisis killed the dynamic of our family. I remember you working so hard as a babysitter, and at the same time taking care of the family and doing part time sewing for extra income. You were often so busy, and tired. 
They probably call it puberty or rebelliousness, but you should know that I am just resenting, and hating that how hard was life back then for us, without knowing how it can hurt your heart.

Dear mom, people might not know about us, but we know. Dad is busy making the big bucks, he plays a big role in our family, he is like the anchor. 

But you are reason this ship sails (metaphor intended). 

When the times were most difficult, you stayed together with us. The world out there is big, but the courage of staying is so much more bigger than to leave, you never gave us up. 

Dear mom, you might be the cause for all the times that I cried but now I know it shapes me into a so much better person now. I am shocked at our resemblance, how stubborn I am at times, how I hustle to get things done, it's all from you.

I thank you.
For all the good and bad, ups and downs. Now, it reminds me to be gratitude and grateful of everything, of how great or successful I am, it is all because of you.   

Dear mom, happy birthday in advance, and Happy mother's day. 

Talking bout Mother's day, for all the people out there wanting to buy a special gift for your mom: My friend who owns a small company called Celovis just approached me for an e-code for my friends who wanted to buy gift for mom.

People got married once in a life for a reason, because of the tedious preparation work and the stress of meeting expectations.

In case you didn't follow, it was a month away to my big day and the piling of stress is definitely bottling up and it decided to let go in tear form today. 

It is no joke of crazy bride they call or the kind of psychology syndrome that people facing. I was in a whole despair today seeking of no help and feeling very very helpless of this of cycle of just to meet people expectations and the heavy burden of all these people telling me 
"it's a once in a lifetime, might as well" 

I swear for the next time that I heard this one coming from someone, I will just ask them to shut the fuck up. 

Like, who is the one started with this marriage thing? 
Man, that person really know how to make money. And, he must be one free man. 

Me, not so free, is dying coping with just trying to look my best. I've been waking up really early in the morning just to go to the gym. I've also been picking out of all the guilty and sinful dinner that I had, just because I had to and I am not proud of myself. 

I am in a constant mode of busy worrying and it wasn't enjoyable at all. 
Because this wedding "style" wasn't what I expecting at all. 

I just want it to be simple.
But looks like simple is the hardest. 
How many guests I will have to please. How many people I will have to greet. 

And I successfully did it. I am a crazy bride-to-be today. 
Lying on the bed crying. And I hate myself for this so much. 

Signing off,
Glad that people only have to marry once. 

My favourite skin care routine is always simple, as I believe simplicity is the best.
Other than sunblock and face wash, toner and hydration sheet mask are my essentials.

But I'm in a age that need more than just basics.
I was convinced that I need something like Biochem Essence.
Biochem Rose Rejuvenate Essence from Taiwan is extracted from rose hip extract. It's a concentration not just helps with slowing down the secretion of sebum and acne but also tackling my biggest problem: dull skin and dark spots.

Korea skin products are in trend now, but Taiwan brands are also one of my favorite. 

My latest bought on Biochem Rose Rejuvenate Essence from Taiwan can be bought online from Malaysia.

Biochem has a series of very interesting and effective products. But out of all, the Rose Rejuvenate Essence is my favourite and it is well known for the effectiveness for oil-control and speed up the collagen synthesis. 
Main Ingredients of this Rose Rejuvenate Essence are: 
  • Rose water, rosehip extract
  • Multiflora rose extract
  • Champagne rose extract 
  • Carnosine
  • Cyclopeptide-5
  • Gold Foil 
It has a premium price tag and main reason is the gold foil inside!!!

It's very hydrating, I use it after my bath every morning and night.
It also leave a non-sticky and non-oily finishing look.

It has a benefit that helps stimulate and activate the skin cells!
It's highly recommended for those who has dull and dry skin like me.
