The Bride Memo Pad

Ordered this memo pad through my office friend. The owner said that it was the first time somebody ordered this design.

I wonder why... =)

Mint to be

I came across this while browsing iDiY. Cuties huh?! Simpler (and I bet cheaper than the tin cans).

I wanna have this on my wedding, with a few modifications on the labels.

Goodluck! Ha ha ha =p

- Jaki

D: What do we wanna promise each other?
M: That you'll love me, even when you hate me
D: To love each other even if we hate each other. No running ever... nobody walks out no matter what happens
M: No running
D: What else?
M: ...that we'll take of each other when we're old, smelly and senile...and if I get Alzheimers and forget you...
D: I will remind you who I am everyday, to take care when old, senile and smelly. this is forever

The Gown

I didn't know it'll be this hard to find a wedding gown design/style! Surfing the net can be a pain sometimes, I always end up finding new gowns, just when I thought I already found "the gown"!

For now, I wanna wear a gown like this. It's a Vera Wang tube gown. I've seen several designer gowns, but this one really caught my eye!

Next project... look for a couturier / designer...

The Kind of Love I Want in my Life

I was browsing through my old emails and I came across this story forwarded to me by one of my friends. It's such a nice read... Heart warming, wish we can all have this kind of love...
- Jaki

It was a busy morning, approximately 8:30 am, when an elderly gentleman,
in his 80's, arrived to have sutures (stitches) removed from his thumb.
He stated that he was in a hurry as he had an appointment at 9:00 am. I
took his vital signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be over
an hour before someone would to able to see him.
I saw him looking at his watch and decided, since I was not busy with
another patient, I would evaluate his wound. On exam it was well healed,
so I talked to one of the doctors, got the needed supplies to remove his
sutures and redress his wound.
While taking care of his wound, we began to engage in conversation. I
asked him if he had a doctor's appointment this morning, as he was in
such a hurry.
The gentleman told me no, that he needed to go to the nursing home to
Eat breakfast with his wife.
I then inquired as to her health. He told me that she had been there for
a while and that she was a victim of Alzheimer Disease.
As we talked, and I finished dressing his wound, I asked if she would be
worried if he was a bit late. He replied that she no longer knew who he
was, that she had not recognized him in five years now.
I was surprised, and asked him. "And you still going every morning, even
though she doesn't know who you are?
"He smiled as he patted my hand and said... "She doesn't know me, but I
still know who she is."
I had to hold back tears as he left, I had goose bumps on my arm, and
thought, "That is the kind of love I want in my life."
True love is neither physical, nor romantic.
True love is an acceptance of all that is, has been, will be, and will
not be.
