Can you believe it’s 2019?

2019 has been a challenging year so far.

We are now living in Singapore, we’ve both left our jobs and trying to figure out what to do/where to be next. I’ve finally taken a career break after many sleepless nights wondering what would be the best choice – I left my career when it was at it’s peak; I was working as a recruiter for a multinational company and drawing a salary that was much higher than most my peers. I never regretted this decision, although there are days I feel anxious thinking about the money I could earned if I had continued. 
My husband left the Korean company he was working for after a difficult 2 years. We learned that Koreans will always be Koreans even if the KR firm is based in another country. He’s taking a short break to prepare for his AICPA exams and I really hope he completes it this time.

The last lap

We’ve just filed our notice of marriage with the ROM! :0

Wedding Prep

I have passed the frustrated + emotional stage now!! 
Learning to take things as it comes. 
Here’s what I received from the US that made me happy: bridesmaids + maid of honor gifts for the girls!!! It’s a customizable soap and lip balm gift set. You get to choose the flavor/scent you want for the soap and lip balm, name labels and wordings, wrapping paper and bag stamp design!!! I chose lavender rosemary for the soap scent and vanilla for the lip balm. Ordered this from A little pricey for the size (smaller than the size of my balm) but they’re gorgeous 🙂

4 months to being legally married

I’m at the stage where it’s too late for regrets. 

There are days I wake up and wonder if this is the right choice, the right time or the right guy. There are days I have doubts about this whole marriage and it makes me very afraid. 
Why is my wedding planning filled with stress, unease and uncertainty?
