Now that I have started to think about getting married, last weekend I went to a wedding fair in outskirts of Jakarta to browse around and find inspirations.
The fair was huge! It took place in a big hall with over 100 of vendors. They came from different categories too, ranging from venues to hand bouquets (Yes, I found one vendor which specialises on hand bouquets only!)… basically everything that you need for a wedding.

Without us realising, it’s been 4 months since our engagement day. In other words, It’s been 4 months since I became someone’s fiancée! Whew, how time flies.
In Indonesia, especially within Indonesian culture, it is not that common to have a long engagement period. Usually couples got formally engaged just few months, or even weeks before the wedding day. Well my case is a bit different.

I know this post is a bit overdue, but since I just received all pictures from my super talented photographer/blogger friend – Dixie Thamrin, I think it’s just the perfect time to share the story of our engagement day in this blog. Bear with me it’ll be a long post, but I hope you’ll enjoy it! (P.S Dixie has also written about this on her photography blog.. do check it out!)

Today’s R’s birthday and it is another birthday we spend apart. At first I wanted to postpone all celebration until he’s in town in the next couple of months (newsflash: he’s coming to Jakarta!! yay!!), but I still felt that I wanted to do something on the birthday. After having done some research, I found several present options and was able to send him something, right on time. Come to think of it again, technology has helped a lot in our long-distance relationship and I’ll share some of my findings/reviews in this post.

That sunny Saturday, my mum took me on a fabric hunting trip. We went to a local market, straight to their textile section – where you could find alleys full of textile shops.
The market was busy, I was fasting and already tired from the traffic that we faced coming to the market. I did not have high hopes in finding anything, I was in no rush of finding anything, so I was not fully excited.
