A Summer Engagement
On the fifth of August 2014, my boyfriend asked me to marry him. We had just finished a long day of exploring the fascinating city of Hong Kong and I was looking forward to calling it a night at the hotel. However, instead of merely watching television, my boyfriend started telling me about how his grandmother had asked if I was the one for him, to which he had replied in the affirmative. I still had no inkling of what was to follow but played along when he asked me to look around the room for a surprise he had hidden. When I finally found the ring box, I was stunned into silence and felt strangely shy when my now fiance knelt before me and said those four magical words.
I immediately accepted his proposal with no hesitation and since then I have not looked back. While the thought of planning and getting all of my ducks in row before the wedding is truly daunting, I am so excited to begin this new chapter of my life with the man who I love, respect, and trust more than anyone else. Also, I know I have God and many amazing friends and family to help me along the way. For instance, my extremely eager Maid of Honour had already finished the planning stage of my engagement party-- before I had even landed back in Vancouver from Singapore! Thanks to her fanatical ways, I've been spurred into action and have already begun researching possible venues, creating guest lists, and of course pinning a million inspirational ideas on a Pinterest board.
For those who recently were married, do you have any useful tips for a future bride who would like to avoid becoming a bridezilla?
Skirt // Bysi (Singapore)

Shoes // Zara
This lovely skirt was acquired on my very last day in Singapore when one of my favourite aunts took me out for some last minute shopping. Before long, we had bought several bags of items and I knew I had to leave the mall before it got any worse! Nevertheless, I adore this beautiful skirt for its unique print and ladylike length. And, of course, my powder blue heels could do no wrong.
