thedelhibells Singapore aka honeymoon part 4

My husband & I left for Singapore the next morning after breakfast. We lost a couple of hours to the time difference, so by the time we landed it was already dark. The 2 hour flight delay didn’t help either. We reached our hotel at 11.30 pm, tired and hungry. So I quickly ordered for dinner in the room, and while we unpacked for the 3rd & last time on this trip, I made it amply clear to my husband that I wouldn’t be able to (read: flat our refused to) get ready at 8 am the next morning for the city tour. It may also have had something to do with the fact that I’d visited Singapore on a family vacation many years ago, so I decided I’d rather sleep in than end the honeymoon on an exhausted note.

The next morning, Continue reading

Read Part 1 & Part 2 to know how we began our honeymoon journey with Karva Chauth & a trip to Gold Coast.

We landed in Sydney at 8 AM and headed straight for the hotel. The check-in was uneventful, for which I was truly grateful. Yes, we’d requested an early check-in in advance! Lesson learnt! The hotel was nice Continue reading

I wanted to share pictures of my wedding shoes with you. Why? Because I love them, and they cost me a grand total of…

700 rupees!

And they were my dream wedding shoes. JUST what I was looking for.

But how can I talk about them, without telling you the story of how I found them?

Yes, there’s a story behind everything. And if it’s got a dash of drama, then you know I’ve got to tell you all about it!

A few weeks before my wedding Continue reading

I know, I know. You are expecting the Honeymoon post.

You’ve seen the pictures. And I’ve got only positive feedback about my makeup! Then again, do brides ever get negative comments on how they are looking?

I got my Sangeet, Wedding and Reception makeup from Mona at b:blunt, Greater Kailash 2, New Delhi. They charge INR 9,000* for smaller functions, and INR 14,500* for the big ones – if you come to GK2 to get your makeup done. If you want them to travel to your venue, you pay double. *figures and facts true as of October, 2012

What did I think of the makeup? Well, read on to find out! Continue reading
