Last Friday I got the text from Jejen, our Indonesian middle man, who has been helping us with our wedding invitation cards and souvenirs. The bad news was, price of stuff in Indonesia has gone up and so, we have to pay extra pennies to our bookings and orders :(( So yesterday DF and I went surveying for invitation cards. Blimey! They cost twice the price we got from Jejen!! So, we have finally decided to just carry on with the orders and bookings, though we have to pay more huhu....
I pity Sharul for having to spend more than me. First, he has to give me the 5k Belanja Hangus. Then the Langkah Dulang. Also the Tanda Kasih, which is an addition of another 5k... The hantarans for me have cost him another 3k... And more to come, the caterings of his 5 functions. Then the photography packages (which are on discounts - I am blessed having cousins who are into this kind of business :D), and wedding costumes and stuff (which we agreed to share). That will cost us another 1.5k each. Sometimes we felt like we have overspent our budget for our wedding. Yet it always leaves us feeling like something is still missing.... Hmmm......
So, things to be done after Eid (November the latest):
1. Register for Kursus Kahwin
2. Pay the wedding packages
3. Pay the photography packages
4. Decorate our hantarans
5. Wrapping gifts (which will be posted here from Indonesia by October)
6. Preparing lucky draws presents
7. Book honeymoon packages
8. Book hadrah and guling tangan (for wedding)
9. Book Fred's and Fay's dancers, deejay and memukun team (for night reception)
10. Wedding invitation cards to guests
Okay, I didn't realize I still have 10 things to do yikes! Is there more?? But it's decorating hantarans that will occupy most of my time. The rest, I think, I can do in a blink of an eye.. I think..... huhu.....
I hope things will go on well. I mean, I am not in the so called panic mode yet. I don't know why huhu.. I think I've been in the comfort zone for far too long that I don't feel worried much about all the wedding preparations. Should I worry?? Ayoyo!!! Suzi, wake up laaa!! Huhu....
Ok, list no1 to be done tomorrow afternoon. Set!!
