A Wedding and Early Christmas =)

Hi everyone! It's been raining for the past week here in Manila. Sun sun sun! I miss you...=)

Last week, my sister visited the country to attend the wedding of her sister-in-law where I also got invited.

Me and my eldest sister. I look older noh?

The wedding ceremony was held at Christ the King church (Green Meadows). It was a lovely church with a tranquil ambiance...perfect for weddings. Too bad Pau and I had to leave early coz we had to buy something at the drugstore. We were sick that weekend. We can't really point out what food we ate that might have caused it...You know what I mean haha =)

Reception was held at The Glass Garden. I've heard of this when we were planning our wedding. It was my first time to see the place and it was amazing. I like the concept of the place.

They have this facility where the bride gets to retouch before the program begins and can be used for the grand entrance of the couple.

All praises for the place except for the limited parking space hehe =) We had to leave again after we ate coz of that urrrr....and we had a hard time because the cars were parked everywhere.

A very unique wedding cake. The couple were both engineers that's why it's obvious they chose this design hehe.

Arhay and Reena May 31, '09. Thanks for inviting us!


I felt like Christmas came so early for me this year =) I asked my sister to buy me makeup and she asked me to email her what I want. So I sent her the links of the things I want. Told her "I want this..or this...or this...if there's no stock just buy this"...I was just asking for one but wahhh she bought almost all that I sent her. Not that I don't want them but I was shocked and grateful. Thank you so much ate if you're reading this =)

sana i get invited to a wedding rin para i get to dress up :D inggit sa MUFE mo haha.

Kim said... thanks sis!

@Kaz...yup I love weddings. One excuse to dress up hehe. I've tried the black liner from the MUFE and it's nice =) but I'm sure you can find other dupes here. I just read from Look magazine's new issue that the ever bilena eyeliner is great for only P75. I'll try that also
