Self: On Wedding Preparations 

A year ago, we were taking our time – looking at pre-wedding photography, choosing the dates and searching for a good restaurant to host the wedding dinner.

Photo: Sweet Valentines Day Gift

Back from my long CNY trip, tiring but always interesting… which also created an ever growing backlog of posts… oops :p Anyhow… Didn’t plan anything special for V-Day since i was away… plus the bf is sweet all the time (so didn’t see a need for over priced stuff) But he got me something, which he probably felt I would like it… Well… Love it!
