Anastar β™₯ Ramli : Wedding [19.12.2009]

anastar is a sweet and hardworking girl. that’s all i know. i dont know about ramli but i am confident that those are among the traits that has melted his young heart 9 years ago before they finally tied the knot. i was a little nervous and couldnt believe what i hear when anastar called me up asking for favor to photograph their wedding.

ramli was based in penang so i never met him prior the wedding. i felt a little awkward at first. but god bless his funny self he never fail to lightened up the atmosphere with his funny jokes. oopsss!! i laughed the loudest. i think. *shy* and i immediately like this guy. owh… no wonder anastar fell over heels on him.

i cant say enough ‘thank you’ for the both of you for believing in me to capture your wedding day. thanks for being such a sport for all my quirky requests.

here are some of my fav from the wedding. but they still a lot. tsk! i am so bad at choosing the better ones la….. but for get my rambling, this couple is game to work with!

since both of them are kenyah and kayan, it is natural to be greeted with their traditional dance by the young ones upon arrival to the church.

Noel β™₯ Scarlet : Wedding [03.10.09]

owhh… how do i ever start about my darling’s wedding? when i post my shoutout ‘away for my darling’s wedding’ on FB some ppl commented that ‘if it’s ur darling, who’s the bride?!’ LOL!! that’s how we roll, ppl! and i’m so glad and happy that my darling finally found her man πŸ˜€ *big wet eyes*

it was a surprise when i first found out noel is actually an ex-ukm-er too. and was in the same faculty as us. us are me and scarlet. no, there was never a noel guy ever mentioned among us back in the uni. well, that’s maybe between the two of them and that just goes to show that we didnt share too many secret between us which is normal πŸ™‚ let’s see if they are wiling to share their story here *winks*

until i finally met noel for the first time that i saw it. the giddiness in her each time he touches her. the loving sparkles of her ever mesmerizing eyes glint each time he talks to her. the random hugs and kissess from him while walking to the parking lot. it just goes to show that their love for each other was too much to handle that it overflowed to ppl around them in small tiny little invinsible heart shapes sparkles in the air. their love is the modern type of love that shames away old-fashion cynical glances.

i wasnt the official photog of the wedding. but they both asked me to bring along labo to capture some of the night before shots. i was actually assigned as the main bride’s maid. my goodness! did i spoiled the wedding or what?! I CAN NEVER BE A GOOD BRIDE’S MAID!!! i was supposed to help the bride with preparing a lot of things but i didn’t do half of it! if there is a bride’s maid practical exam, i think i’ve flunked my paper!! T__T u knew already that i never use the hand fan from the previous post, right?! that’s not only it. i didnt help to lift the my bride’s gown too!! o_O and and a bride’s maid suppose to let the bride sleep well and wake her up in the morning, right?! gosh!! it was scarlet who has to wake me up in the morning!!! on her wedding day. @_@ huhuhuhu….. sorry darling, told u that i’m bad at this lor.. T__T

k lah, let’s see photos πŸ˜€

i stayed overnight at fei’s place after the reception. i didnt want to be a k-po stayin at the newly wedded couple’s place eventhough they all (noel’s mummy included) insisted me to just stay with them.

fei & alvin (see u 2 in Jan! i bought my tix but only one way :p still waiting for cheap tix ^^) me & fei (i must take)

and the next day, fei ‘returned’ me back to noel and scarlet in good hand. lol! then we had to meet up with scarlet’s family TO GET MY MAKE-UP BAG because i was catching my flight back and her family were going to Genting!! KNS!! why do i always have to trouble ppl wan?! *cries of shameness* TT____TT aunty, uncle, so sorry horr… T_T and since they were all there i took the opportunity to take a casual family photo of them πŸ˜€

#29

DSC_0364 (2) copy

parents, siblings, sons-in-laws... πŸ™‚

ok let me tell u a funny story. actually it was only scarlet’s dad. yes. he is a man full of humour. when i asked them to arrange themselves in pairs with respective partners, apparently bernard (scarlet’s bro) has no one to partner with. out of a sudden scarlet’s dad said, ‘he partner with valerie lor…!!’ and everyone laughed their head out for 10978 seconds while i fainted (in my head). so this is how it went at the end. bernard as the centre of attraction. LOL!!

#30

DSC_0361 copy

love this!

then we stopped over at the house for a while because noel wanted to transfer all the photos that i’ve taken to his laptop. and while waiting for the process this was what i did.

#31

DSC_0407 (2) copy

i played around with their wedding bands. aihh... i know so not original!

#32

DSC_0395 copy copy

haaa!! this lady giraffe has ear rings!! enough original liao eh?! πŸ˜€ i've thought of this since the first time i saw the giraffes family long time ago and YAY!!

that’s it.

to darling scarlet, i’m so very happy for u finally found ur man. ur love. it was a joy to witness. really. πŸ˜€
to noel, she’s all yours now. handle with care, you! ohya, thanks for letting me sleep with her whenever i’m around while u have to camp on the couch T___T

to both of you, thanks for giving me the opportunity to play around with labo on the day even though i was supposed to take care of the bride. i just hope that my takes would add up to the unseen ‘nook and cranny’ that eugune might missed *cewah, so eksyen!* thanks for the ever special company whenever i’m there. here’s a toast *iced orange syrup in milo mug* to many many years of love and blessings as you sail together as husband and wife. gorgeous husband and wife.

xoxo,
valerie

Malam ABBA 2009 – and the award goes to…..

jeng… jeng… jeng…

hmm… nope i’m not gonna pop that 1st. nyeh.. nyeh.. nyeh….

so they got Grammy Awards in Hollywood, Star Screen Awards in Bollywood, Anugerah Planet Muzik in Msia / Indo / Sg, and recently The SHOUT Awards in Msia, we in Myy got something almost similar – The ABBA Awards 2009! Held in Eastwood Valley on 26/7/2009. Notice how they rhymes? Hollywood, Bollywood and Eastwood?! hence the dress code was ala Eastwood artists like that :p

so what exactly was ABBA Awards all about? No, it doesnt have anything to do with the ABBA group who sang Dancing Queen :p For the very first time our church came out with an idea of way to appreciate its people. It was a very special event to appreciate the dedication of those who serve in the Altar Ministry who have given their time and energy only for the glory of our beloved Father a.k.a ABBA. Lead by the ever brilliant, up-to-date yet serius and a Ps.’ wife, Sis. Dora this ministry has come a long way of being one of the fastest growing and the most happening ministry in the church.

the dinner started with all the early birds posed for a ‘red carpet’ moment. and to add glamour to that everyone has the opportunity to hold the ABBA Award trophy and strike a ‘If I Win The ABBA Award’ pose… haha!! i was there as the amateur photog cos i am ‘the girl with the big camera’ and now…. with a tripod! whee~~ so here goes some of the poses….

even though they didnt get the trophy but the three of them dint go back empty handed. they each received an award. From left: Lina - Anugerah Altar Paling Kuat Ketawa '09, Richard - Anugerah Altar Paling Blur '09, Sis. Helen U. - Anugerah Altar Paling Kuat Nangis '09. haha!!

JOSHUA PAUL!!!

Congrates Josh!! eventhough you werent there in flesh but we knew that you were praying hard to win the categories... haha!!

Congrates Josh!! eventhough you werent there in flesh but we knew that you were praying hard to win the categories... haha!!

He didnt walk away with only one, not two but THREE awards of the night. Another record breaker! Joshua also won Anugerah Worship Leader Paling Popular 2009 (The Most Popular Worship Leader 2009) and Anugerah Altar Paling Bergaya Lelaki 2009 (The Most Stylish Male Altar Award 2009). and he deserved them all the most. Too bad he too couldnt make it to the gala event due to unforseen reasons. He was somewhere else let’s just say on work commitment.

so that’s a wrap about the ABBA night πŸ™‚ again it was not being the most popular or the most talented person but as The Father will reward His children who diligently seeking for Him, we too are able to do so by appreciating the ppl around us. We only hope that this kind of event could inspire others and bring out the Impact Maker within you. It wasnt only for the present but it was a legacy for the next generation and many years to come.

ok, the end.

photo on the right was when she was demonstrating the ‘If I Win The ABBA Award’ pose and ended up only she alone got it. the rest were all ‘skema’ to the max. both photos were taken by Tim who pitied the girl who only stood behind the lense. kekekeke….
