So recently we’ve been watching The Walking Dead which is basically a zombie apocalypse TV series, but unlike the zombies in Left 4 Dead 1 & 2 (which Jet bought for me for Halloween!! woot but i can’t play cause I don’t have a decent comp set up yet.. long story, don’t ask), the zombies in this series then to be rather slow-moving ones. Having watched several zombie flicks together.. including personal favourites like 28 days later and 28 weeks late and of course ZOMBIELAND!!! (hur hur hur), we’re also constantly yelling at the characters in this TV series who don’t seem to know the general rules of surviving a zombie apocalypse, such as wasting bullets, aiming for heads, letting the bitten ‘live’ etc. At moments like these, Jet and I always look at each other and say don’t worry, I promise to kill you if you get bitten by a zombie. Yes I think this is as close as it gets for the au-chews as far as romantic gestures go. The more we watched, the more silly mistakes these characters made, the longer our list of promises got till it started to sound almost like wedding vows. So here it is, ladies and gents wedding vows if you got married in a zombie apocalypse!
With this ring I thee wed,
To have and to hold
To never waste ammo
To always stick by your side and never split up,
To always cover each other, in all zombie attacks
I promise to aim for the heads, never other body parts
To always kill the infected, no matter who they are
And most of all, I promise to chop off your head swiftly if you get bitten by one of them.
We’ve also decided that melee weapons were the best choice of weapons compared to guns if you get swarmed by zombies, but we also know that Jet can’t seem to use them (we know this from L4D2), our defence positions would be me in front and him behind in the case of a zombie swarm attack. We also decided that one of the best weapons was still the cross-bow, keeps a good distance, and reusable arrows! Unfortunately Jet does not think we need to buy one for our future place. BOO. I kept telling him what if we get attacked by zombies! Then i started looking around our current surroundings, and realised we were really poorly equipped to survive a zombie attack. Unlike the youths at downtown east, we don’t have parangs and obviously we don’t have any guns. And Jet’s already put his foot down on a cross-bow, so the only thing we will have is make shift molotov cocktails from the many bottles of alcohol we have. What would you use to survive a zombie apocalypse?
and don’t say oranges..
so my cousin is suppose to bring Jet oranges before opening the car door for him (apparently it’s for good luck) and on the way home yesterday we were wondering what my cousin could bring to him that was similar to oranges but werent.. here’s the list so far
- pomelos (okay they are not orange in colour but they are the right shape)
- carrots (orange but not round.. )
- baby carrots
- pumpkins (esp with halloween around the corner.. hahah)
- mangoes (close to orange colour and shape)
leave a comment if you have more suggestions!! hahaha
so we had a wedding ops meeting on sat and all the jie meis and some of the heng tais to come over to my place to go through the actual day’s programme. To thank all the heng tais we got them all cufflinks that we thought reflected their personality, like the two camera enthusiasts, abel and henry, got vintage camera cufflinks, keeve got a phone he had never reviewed before, AA received airplane cufflinkes, kev got anchor cufflinks, chris got rainbow ones, damien got wine bottle opener ones etc etc.
after going through the schedule (I DID A PPT PRESENTATION OKAY !!!) we chased the jet and his only heng tai (one left early, the rest didnt come) out of the house so that the jie meis could plan what was required in the tribute ceremony. My jie meis actually consist of 6 girls (including two who can’t make it in the morning due to work overseas) and 5 male jie meis and one
ahmad chauffeur. Most of them have only done this jie mei thing once at my other gf’s wedding last mth or in the case of the guys, been on the other side as a heng tai (see next post for letter of recommendation written to MOH on behalf of the guys to be a jie mei). There were quite a lot of ideas tossed around and the tribute ceremony lasts for one hour. We know they will get here on time cause my friend is the chauffeur (yes it was all part of my cunning plan).
While the rest of the ideas are TOP SEKRET! jet has been informed that he needs to get his men (men in tights! tight tights!) to learn the dance moves in this video. Funnily enough, this idea came all the way from my gf in japan. HEEE. It was quite funny cause a few of us started learning the dance ourselves, with Henry being the best at it and amusing my mother to no end. I think henry said something about putting it as his ring tone.. AHAHAHHA
Jet was also told that he could skip the entire one hour of tribute ceremony if he brought the girls furla bags and me a miu miu (the boys led by aaron said nice wallets would be enough for them!), but jet decided that the one hour might be easier than the bags.
here goes the video… POINT POINT POINT POINT, MAGIC FINGERS MAGIG FINGERS, ROLLING BACK ROLLING BACK!!
here are the english lyrics.. AHAHAHAH
Open your eyes, look your feet, so many things are dubious.
Call your name, make you muddle, test how deep my love is.v
Elevator, neon bulbs, so restrained dancing in the crowd.
Hold on to me, dont go with the air, Ill keep the wind off behind your back.
Oh~ You are a flower for me, I want have you to, arrangement in my heart.
Oh~ You are a flower for me, I will protect you, clean obstructions for you.
Oh~ You are a flower for me, although so many gravels, on your side to block.
Oh~ You are a flower for me, without sleep and rest, I love you all day long..
No matter how much you confused, I would never, changed the color of my love?
You are my joyful source, you and i will be, in that paradise to live.
and check out this other one which has LIVE DANCING so it’s actually doable.. hee hee he

man, i think my sub consciousness is trying to remind me that the wedding is near.. had two dreams recently
the first dream was sometime last week where it was the our wedding day only we had to back to the registry of marriages. The reason for this is because we had registered for than a year before our actual wedding and they wanted to go thru what our marriage vows were again. They were afraid we’d forget. So we had to pack the whole kumpung of people to ROM, have them read it to us again, show us the cert and then send us off to the wedding dinner. Only we had to take a public bus to the wedding dinner. in our formal wear. So the whole kumpung piles onto the bus that is already crowded with random other people and suddenly, jet whispers to me that we need to get off at the next stop. I’m like, but we’re not at the hotel, and then he says we need to go meet his grandpa (this is actually true to a certain extent cause i’ve not met his grandpa who lives in m’sia).
so we sneak off the bus and go into this old hdb neighbourhood, it’s almost like the scene in the matrix where neo goes to see the “there is no spoon” woman type of place. so we take a lift and we’re at this floor which is an old folks’ home. and instead of meeting his grandpa, we meet the old man’s friends from the home and don’t actually meet him.
then (and this is the real kicker) jet whisks me off to go a take that concert with pam and lisa!! yes we skipped our own wedding to go watch take that! i was very excited and we had row two tickets (well pam and lisa were in the cheap seats section way back) and i realise he managed to get these tickets because
JET IS AN EX TAKE THAT MEMBER!! (i dunno why he could only get two tickets at row two but that’s how it was). and it turns out that it is also is a take that and spice girls concert and they kept coming up to talk to him during the concert. After the concert, we go backstage and i meet robbie and mark and jet intros me as his wife and i tell them they need to do an asian tour and come to singapore for a concert. (that’s also when i realised we had flown out of the country for the concert and my guess was that we were in the O2 arena in the UK).
then i woke up. BOO. this was a dream that i did not want to wake up from. SIGH….
Oh and the second dream was not a good one. actually it was more like a nightmare! this one occurred this week!
again, it’s our wedding day, this time it’s just before the dinner and i’m getting my make up done. Only jet keeps coming up to me to ask the most inane questions like, can the band play this song, my friend wants to hear it, my friends wants to have their kids as our flower girls etc etc. MY GOD, i think i lost it in my dream cause at the point my make up was still not done and i didnt have the right foundation or powder for the make up artiste to use so she had to redo it or something.
And! suddenly jet and i had to go out and get something, me with my make up half done, hair in rollers and in my evening dress and him in his suit walking out of the hotel to get something (dunno what the something is). Going back, we are walking up hill with like hordes of people walking in the opposite direction. I mumble to jet, must be a concert just ended, then we see a lot of young kids ( 9 to 13 yr olds) with their parents so we’re like..hmm what sort of concert was it, then we go into a building and it’s like some druggie area an we realise we’re in the wrong building. then we walk out of it.
By this time, i’m feeling very icky and hot and even though the hotel is just like round the corner, i insist on boarding a taxi to the hotel. then we realise hmm, its only 6pm! i can go take a shower and nap first! and why are our stupid wedding guests all so early!! we get off the taxi, while jet is paying, three girls want to board it, and i swear they were hookers going out to orchard towers or something. I start to have misgivings about the hotel we have booked and then in the lobby there was this interactive promotional booth thing which told us that the hotel was just newly purchased by a Nordic company so it’s going to have a facelift soon. we stare at it blankly and head up to the hotel room where i get my much deserved rest and shower but not before i shove jet out of the room and told him to go down to the ballroom lobby, stay there, entertain the guests and stop coming up to ask me stupid questions. the answer would be no!
then i woke up.
my god, i woke up in cold sweat and in a semi panic attack. and have since told jet not to do this on our wedding day but could he please be an ex member of take that or at least bring me and the girls to go watch it.
so the maid of honour and I were discussing what the groomsmen need to do in order to fetch the bride..
all i can say is be afraid.. be V afraid..
groomsmen better take the bridesmaids out and treat them nicely for the months leading to the wedding..
well, technically, we’re already married. We’ve had our civil ceremony more than a year back but now comes the time when we have to get off our bums and actually go through the entire traditional ceremony and have me in a big white gown.
There’s so many things to be done! I’m already having panic attacks and we’ve only started the planning process. I feel the time line is already very tight considering the wedding is to happen in Nov this year. It usually takes a good 12 mths to plan something and we’re entering it 4 months late. GROANS.
You see, we initially wanted to do a beach side wedding with good food and close friends and family joining us in our celebrations after the whole morning affair. Unfortunately, the mother in law came to me one day and asked if I/we could reconsider these plans. After much thought and realising how much this meant to her, I gave in and agreed to this big wedding.
Do I resent the decision? To be honest, yes a little. I mean the beach wedding was my dream wedding and well, this is hers. But I figured we could always do both and also seriously, I did not want this hanging over my head in years to come. At the end of the day, we were already married and having good relations with the in laws was more important in the bigger scheme of things. Besides, we could always have our beach wedding as an anniversary / renewal of vows much later in life.
So anyway, I decided, since we are doing this, we might as well do it in my/our style and at least enjoy the day. I’m glad for the various friends that have volunteered to help out and already are to make our big day a great one.
