Until the end of 2013, I have organised at least 4 and attended 5 bachelorette parties for my girlfriends who were then getting married.
First we started with Nora. Which we kidnapped to some of the Timah's apartment in Shah Alam.
Theme is pink!
And then comes Ya's first hen party with schoolmates at Cupcake Chapter. We planned to wear pastel colours but....ok lah maybe it did happen. Ya was also one of the coordinator for the party.
A week later, I had a surprise gathering of Timah to celebrate Ya getting married. See how much I love this girl sampai ada 2 parties? Asked them to come in pyjama/baju tidur since it was suppose to be a slumber party. But most just came back from work and classes so everyone came with oily faces.
The final one we had was for Katie. She was already married when this happened. But her reception haven't took place yet at that time. So technically the hen party is still valid. All of us came dressed in black and put on red lipstick for a sexay feel.
Whoa. That was a lot. This year a few more is still due. 3 weddings in June - which means hen parties for Lily, E and Erin. Then for Kecik who's getting married in October and in shaa Allah Phia.
Can I retire from organising please?

I did Bali last year. I plan to do Japan this year. In shaa Allah.
I have 2 plans already this year which I hope I will be able to realise. All these years, I have always believed that if I say something about a plan, or reveal it before time is due...then it will never happen.
That should stop. We humans, plan. Execution is in God's will. Just hope for the best. If He thinks its best for you to go, the time is right, the it will happen. Kun faya kun.
I've been wanting to go to Korea. Planned it last year. Didn't happen. He may said, not yet.
Takpe, the time will come.
I need to be brave if I want to materialise that plan to go backpacking to a few countries. So I will be brave.
I will start by listing the countries/places I plan to visit in 2014 & 2015 in my blog. Even if Im paranoid about jinxing it.
Allah knows best. If it's right for me, I will be there. With His blessings.

For the first day, I planned for us to head to Lovina which is 2 to 3 hours away from Denpasar. The original reason for us to go there is to catch the sunrise in the middle of the sea while sighting dolphins. Isn't that like the most awesome birthday plan or what??? Our arrangement with the supir is to be picked up at the airport at 3am and start our journey from there. Lucky us, we are at Ngurai Rai Denpasar new airport so everything is clean and new and modern. Unlucky us, we are at the new airport. There's hardly any stores or eateries open. With nothing to do, we had a drink at...get this...Bangi Kopitiam, and then
At 3 on the dot, Nyoman picked us up and to Lovina we go!!!! OK, there's a but. Abah actually made me promise not to go into the sea since during that time there was a really bad typhoon in Philippines. I told the boys, if the weather is fine, you guys go ahead. I will not be going.
We arrived at Lovina Beach at 6-ish. Guess what happened that morning? It was raining super lebat as if Thor decided to show up in Lovina just because my father asked him too. Of course no boats will take anyone to the sea.We all ended up sleeping in the van until about 8 (it still didn't stop raining then) hoping there's a place open for us to have breakfast. There were none! I told the supir lets just start our journey back, since we will be stopping at a few places anyways. And make sure to stop by if you see any warung or restaurant open. We are all famished!
First stop - Banjar Holy Hot Spring! It was drizzling, and you have 6 zombies walking with umbrellas. We had the option to swim in the hot spring pool but we didn't. Everyone were groggy and still sleepy. But that didn't stop us from taking pictures!
Next stop is my favourite of the three places we went, Gitgit Waterfall! Still in the Banjar area, we parked our van and hiked down to the river. Actually there's a charge for people to go to Gitgit Waterfall - around RM1.50. We didn't have to pay because we were really early, no one was at the counter. I was super excited, I lead the troop during the hike. When we got there.......BEAUTIFUL!
That's when we all got really awake. There was a small stairs we took, as we get closer, the raindrops and splashes of waterfall kinda collide and that sound of bursting water, it was almost majestic.
We stayed for a bit and then the rain got stronger, we hiked UP back to our van. Of course I was the last one to reach the van. Hwaaaaaa in my head I told myself JUST. KEEP.GOING!
I didn't sign up for this! T______T
Come on, sikit je lagi! *horse breathing*
BILA NAK SAMPAI?!
In the van, we all took off our damp sweaters and what not since our bodies are heating up. That's when the supir said, okay next we go to Twin Lake! Is it on a hill?, we asked. Yes, a little bit. GROANNNNNN! So the journey continues uphill, thankfully by drive. We decided to switch off the aircon and roll down the window. Kabus pagi atas bukit, bliss!
The Twin Lake - Danau Bunyan and Danau Tamblingan should actually look like this.
But its soooo foggy when we were at the look out point, nothing we can do about it.
Except go makan at the restaurant across the road. We all are just happy to makan and then we see the last dish in the menu......babi masak kecap. OHKAY! Let's just have breakfast. Since its the fruit season, the banana pancakes and pisang bakar was super sedap. Tapi makan dihurung lalat. We are pretty sure coz we all haven't bathe since the day before. Haha. That was it. Everyone to the hotel now!
This is already a long post. Hang in just a little bit more. I want to show you our awesome villa. Ehem, hotel. The Grey Boutique Inn, Seminyak. Right behind Grand Kuta Bali. I arranged for our rooms to have the pool view, and since we got all 3 rooms in front of the pool - it really felt like we got the place to ourselves.
Mandi and rehat for about 2 hours and then makan time! Im ever so grateful that Sari Ratu is so near to our hotel.
Back in the hotel suddenly 5 half naked guys started singing the birthday song to me in front of my room. With a piece of cake. So comel. Hahahah. But the videographer (Ain) didn't press the record button. So there's just a memory of that.
Then they jump into the pool.

God, you have given me so much. So so much. And tonight you return my fading trust on friendship and warmth.
Im blessed by your blessings in the form of people you put in my life and the rezeki you shower me with.
Thank you so much for all you have given. As you have blessed me, I humbly request for you to give the same to my friend. She have been tested so much these couple of years. I strongly believe you, the most forgiving, the most merciful knows the best for her.
Please allow her to fine that happiness with her children through you. Please let them be happy with you, by you.
O Allah, she have showed she has the patience to endure your tests. Kindly allow her to receive the reward of the patience. In sha Allah.
