A Wedding to Start the Year

Yeah..I'm starting 2014 in February (*sigh*) Actually a lot of things to blog about; with the ending of 2013 and the beginning of the year but I was pretty busy with all that had happened that I kept postponing the task...honestly, let see...we had to move from Kuala Terengganu as the hubby was at the end of his contract, the first son and his family were back in the country for about 6 weeks, the hubby and I went to Melbourne for Christmas (Corelle sale...yeay), the daughter got married early in the year, took us a couple of weeks to settle down in a new place (and problems with internet connections and all) there you are.  For this first entry I will have to start with THE WEDDING as the daughter has been ceaselessly prodding me, "when are you going to blog it ma, when are you going to blog it ma..!" Good grief..
Well she was officially married on New Year's Day 2014 and the reception 11 days after that. The event for the solemnization was held in a rented establishment in Shah Alam while the 11th January event in Kelana Jaya. Anyway here are some pics arranged chronologically from 1st January to the 11th and beyond..enjoy!
