Planning our Wedding: Winter Theme

We had our wedding in December and we love Christmas so why not combine the two and have a sumptuous Christmas themed wedding?

I incorporated white and red colors into the theme. I like a little sparkle so I use glittered snow ornaments as place card holders.

How to Plan a Couple’s Shower

Instead of a traditional bridal shower, we thought it’s more fun to throw a couple’s wedding shower since Derek and I rarely do things apart.

Compared to weddings past, grooms today are more involved in the wedding process, which means wedding showers aren’t just for brides anymore.

Kuala Lumpur Malaysia

Kuala Lumpur

Selamat Datang! (Welcome!)

Kuala Lumpur is not only the capital of Malaysia or a nice city for a stopover. It’s so much more than that! A melting pot of many nations and a varied mixture of Malay, Chinese, Indian, Tamil, Thai and many more people living in this amazing city.

Greece Santorini

Santorini

Santorini Greece is truly a magical destination. It’s amazing to  walk among the white-washed buildings with the famous brilliant blue domes. Santorini has been on my bucket list since I watched the movie “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants”.

Athens Greece

Athens

Athens is the historical capital of Europe with a long history. The city’s values, civilization, and a long fascinating history acquired a universal significance.

To see the Acropolis at its best, sunrise is the perfect time to start your exploration. My favorite site is Odeon of Herodes Atticus-a stone theatre structure, a venue for many great concerts: Frank Sinatra, Luciano Pavarotti, Yanni,…

One of the most popular site is the Parthenon – a temple on the Acropolis dedicated to the goddess Athena, whom the people of Athens considered their patron.

After a whole day exploring ancient ruins, it was so refreshing to go to Anafiotika-a 19th century neighborhood on the northern slope of the Acropolis to enjoy some grilled octopus, Greek salad, Alpha Beer, and Greek Yogurt.

One of the interesting things that we did in Athens was walking along Ag Theklas Street to find the shop of Melissinos. Melissinos is a well-known poet-sandalmaker of Greece. His books of poetry, essays, and plays have been translated into English, French, and Italian and the best known work “The Rubaiyat” is on the curriculum of many American universities. The shop has attracted some of the biggest names in art and culture including the Beatles, Anthony Quinn, Sophia Loren, and Margo Fontaine who have worn sandals of the poet. The design of his sandals like his poetry influenced by Greek mythology and history is based on footwear of the ancient Greeks who once walked the streets of the ancient agora.

At night time whenwe got all hungry after all days walking around the ancient ruins, it was perfect to get some yummy food at the Athens’ night market-Monastikari!
