Ocular Visit- Hotels in Manila

I had an ocular visit for our hotel preps. Most of our preferred hotels are along Roxas Boulevard for easy travel to the ceremony which is in Malate Church. We have to anticipate the traffic and all esp. in Manila. We also prefer a big room to accommodate our family and suppliers on the prep day.

Here are some of the hotels i got to visit on:

Traders Hotel

As of now, our choice is Diamond Hotel.

So how to do an ocular? 

1. You must have a preference (such as hotel, location etc)
2. Visit your preferred hotel/place for an ocular.
3. Proceed to the main lobby/ customer service booth
4. Inquire for the rate, availability, room size
5. Check the room.

Remember: It's FREE. You won't be paying for anything when doing an ocular not unless, you've already decided to book the hotel. Then you'll have to pay a certain amount for the reservation.

That's it! Hope this helps if you plan on doing an ocular soon.

DIY: Wedding Cord

It's now 95 days left before our big day. I'm still recovering from being hospitalized a few days ago. While on rest, i got my hands working on our DIY project- our Wedding Cord. It's very light and so easy to do. No sweat, promise! hahaha I got it done in just a couple of minutes. I love the final outcome :)

Materials were bought from wellmanson at a very cheap price.

No tutorials for this one, sorry. But you can find good tutorials via web search engine.

I'll just share with you the final outcome of my "Bride's touch". Plain and simple.


A combination of our main motif, Pink and color accent, Aqua. I have included our initials too.

I have used my necklace's pendant for this cord. It looks cool, yes? It fits our fairytale theme. Love it.

Add a personal touch to your wedding. Unleash the creative side of you. It will not only save you money but you'll also realize how fun it is to do the things you love.You can do it. I know you can.

next diy mission: Fabric or Paper Flowers

Happy preps,

Let the countdown begin... 100 Days!

Heya there!

It's been a while. I don't have much to post so i don't drop by often. Plus no-internet-connection-at-home for a couple of months (and counting?) really does pisses me off. Oh well, i have already signed an application to one prospect internet provider here at our cluster and i just hope they'll install a lot quicker so i can chat with my hubby way better.

We've been to Cebu and Bohol last last weekend. When we got back here in Manila, after a day, sadly, i got sick! I had to rushed myself at PDH's ER for checkup due to high fever and debilitation. Was admitted due to platelet counts dropping. Which later on, have been diagnosed of Intestinal Flu (- is most commonly caused by viruses that march into our gastrointestinal tract, more specifically our intestines. These viruses disrupt the normal functions of our intestine to such a point that we experience nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, as well as general body weakness and sickness.- intestinalflu.net)  which symptoms according to my doctor are almost the same as when having dengue. But Thank God i felt better now and currently recovering. Thanks to my family and friend's prayers. For now, I have to gain my lost energy and weight since my second fitting will be this coming weekend (2 days from now). Hooray!

Let's skip to the main reason of this post. We're officially down to 100 days.. wooohooo! Oh-em-gee!

 So let the countdown begin. Ready?

Happy preps!
