British summer down the south of England 🌞 mini road trip with @daniel_low . I highly recommend Durdle Door if you’re ever in London/UK during summer. Check the weather forecast and pick one of the hottest day to take a dip in the cool water. It’s about 3 hours drive from London and absolutely worth it! France is just on the opposite side of this coastline across the English Channel. You can also drive to Bournemouth (45 minutes from here) and take a ferry to France.

Back to our favourite beach in England. We came here for the first time two summers ago and have been looking forward to come back ☀️ #roadtrip #adidasmy #adidasoriginals

They said architects only wear black and grey.

@daniel_low proposed to me on the 9th of April 2018, the western “down-on-one-knee-will-you-marry-me” style. It was super simple and intimate, just a promise made between the two of us. We broke the news to our parents and they gave their blessings. As we live abroad, we decided to skip most of the Malay and Chinese pre-wedding traditions, such as merisik, majlis bertunang, Chinese’s betrothal ceremony “Guo Da Li” which is similar to the malay’s formal engagement ceremony or majlis bertunang. I’m super glad that both of our parents didn’t make any fuss about it (my parents were actually quite happy to skip all the ceremonies) and trusted us as two adults to make our own decisions and wedding arrangements.

I remember somebody was asking my mom during raya “Oh bila Atira buat majlis bertunang?” and my mom just replied “Diaorang bertunang sendiri-sendiri je. Masing-masing dah besar”. Last weekend Daniel’s mom and brother came to meet my family at our house in KL for the first time to get to know each other. I’m happy to hear that they had a lovely time and got along so well.

Of course there’s nothing wrong with following the traditions and it would actually be really nice if we were able to do it. I’m not disregarding the importance culture and traditions but sometimes it is okay to skip or simplify them and do what works best for you. In our case it’s just logistically difficult and we are more than happy to spare ourselves the trouble of organizing those ceremonies (not to mention the unnecessary spending). We would rather reserve our energy and spending on the actual wedding ceremony itself and will try our best to bring the two cultures together on the big day ♥️
