Singapore adventures 

As I had mentioned before, we went to Singapore for our Christmas – New Year break.

Initially, I really want to go to Phillipines but we end up going to Singapore at the last minute. Can you imagine the cost of the flight and accommodation when you book during such a busy period? I am just glad that we still managed to have a holiday.

Anyway, Chhori was excited about the holiday from the day we booked the flight and told her about it.

I am so glad to see that she will be a traveler like her parents and enjoy new stuff in life. When we were boarding our flight to Singapore, she was so excited that she was dancing and jumping and saying, “We are going to Singapore for holiday.” Making all the onlookers smile.

We had an evening flight from Sydney so it was perfect for Chhori and me as she slept most of the 9 hours flight while AS couldn’t sleep a wink. For some reason AS can’t sleep on the plane making it hard for him when we reach our destination.

When we reached Singapore, it was 3 am in the morning so we caught a cab 🚕 and went straight to our hotel. We checked in and were very happy with our room. We got upgraded to a better room and I am so thankful to Novotel for that. They definitely gave us a very good start to our holiday.

We decided to sleep for a few hours and woke up hungry. We had breakfast at the hotel itself and decided to go to the city for the day.

We used GRAB, a car hailing app like Uber, while in Singapore and it was so convenient as well as saving us heaps of money.

Our first stop was the Merlion Park and Marina bay. As tourists do, we went around and took heaps of photos with all the iconic monuments. 

Chhori was equally excited to see this new city. I have been to Singapore before but this time it is so much better as my baby and my better half were with me.

From there we walked the bridge to go to the other side to Mariana bay shopping centre. We had lunch there and found this amazing activities for kids.

Chhori was excited to ride on animals, play on the big sandpits with balls and toys. We spent more than one hour there before going to an art and crafts stall where we painted and made snow man out of paper before leaving.

By then Chhori was so tired that she decided to sleep on the stroller.

We decided we should have dinner before leaving and found this little restaurant serving local food. 

I ordered chicken laksa and AS had pork belly. The food was amazing and it came with local tea and koffee as they call it.

We had an amazing first day in Singapore and were very excited for the rest of the trip. 

Will write more about our holiday soon, till then take care.

Pole dancing , magic mike and whole new vocabulary 😊

Hello everyone and a very happy 2018. I can’t believe that time is passing so fast.

I am back from my holiday and looking forward to another holiday soon  🙂

As soon as we came back from holiday I went to the hen’s night for one of my cousins and it was quite a night.

That Saturday evening, 10 gals glammed up to celebrate our dear cousion’s journey from Miss to Mrs. They are going to Nepal to celebrate their wedding but we planned her hen’s night here as not all of us will go to Nepal for the wedding.

The night started with us gathering in the city and marching to a pole dancing studio where we were greeted with a glass of champagne.

This was my first experience with pole dancing so I didn’t know what to expect. We were all excited.

We were asked to change into sexy hot outfits. There were heaps of laughs and giggles as we tried to find the right outfit for us. I found this one piece black dress with beads and sequins.

Once everyone were ready, the instructor showed us a few easy steps and we followed her. It was really fun and not as hard as I had expected. We had so much fun but the highlight of the day was the instructor’s 5 minute performance for us. It felt like she didn’t have any bones on her body as she seemed to flow on the pole.

After the dancing, we caught a cab and went to the second venue where we were going to have dinner and watch a show. I didn’t know what to except for this event as well but we were all pleasantly surprised.

We were greeted by topless waiters (guys) with a glass of champagne and escorted to our tables. The venue was not very big with only 5 big tables including ours. Most of them seemed to be there for hen’s night and there were only 2 males in the whole room apart from the waiters.

As we all sat down, entree was served and the show started with a strip tease. It was definitely a very new experience for most of us.

After a few shows, they offered body shot options for whoever dared. That was the first new word for us for the night 😄.

Body shotShot of tequila served with a topless waiter laying on the floor with salt on his body, shot glass on his mouth and lemon 🍋 slice on his mouth. Now I let you imagine how you drink the shot 😊.

Later, they served a yummy dinner. I had salmon with veggies as more shows were performed.

Then we decided that the bride 👰 needed to have a very expensive special desert.

Special desertIcecream 🍦 covered all over the topless waiter and it is up to you as to how you eat them 😊

Anyway, we had a great night and we stayed there until they closed at 11:30.

After the last shot and the last dance there, we moved to the nightclub upstairs and danced till dawn when everyone was tried and ready to crash on their bed.

Overall, it was a great way to start my new year. I hope all of your new year has begun with some excitement and fun like mine 😊.

Take care everyone and I will share my Singapore experience soon.

Our Story : Mehendi ceremony- Part 39

This is a continuation of my previous posts. Please read the previous posts here.

Finally after so many ups and down, the wedding rituals began. The first ritual was the Mehendi ceremony.

Mehendi ceremony is not a traditional part in Nepali wedding but I wanted to do something similar to hen’s night in Nepal. I did have a hen’s night in Australia but I still wanted to do something in Nepal with my cousins and friends as well to remember my wedding as a fun ceremony.

Mehendi means henna and, during this ceremony, a henna artist applies mehendi to the bride’s hands and feet, as well as to the hands of all female relatives and friends. This is purely done for decoration and to make the bride look even more beautiful on her wedding day. So I arranged a person to come to my place to put Mehendi on. I invited all my close female relatives and good friends. So it was going to be a girl’s night with Mehendi and music.

I went for bridal Mehendi while all my friends and family had simpler ones. The bridal designs are so intricate, that they require several hours to be drawn and then to dry. My mehendi took more than 3 hours. It was hard spending 3 hours sitting on a chair, with somebody painting your hands and feet, you just cannot move even to eat, drink, go to the loo or basically do anything at all except for talking.

I waited for another hour for the mehendi to get a little dry and then applied a mixture of lemon and sugar. It is supposed to make it darker. Whole day passed with us having fun while the mehendi guy was applying mehendi to everyone’s hand.

The mehendi was followed, in the evening, by dancing and music. It was great to see people dancing including my aunts and cousins and having fun. My mum was also having a great time and even though she was busy at the same time as she was making lunch for the guests. It was worth all the effort and money I paid the guy at the end of the day.

When I scrubbed off the dried out Mehendi, it had left a deep red coloured design. It is a common belief that the darker the colour of the mehndi on the hands on a bride, the more will she be loved by her husband. I was thinking, of course I know that and that is the reason I am getting married to him 🙂

Our Story : Hen’s night – Part 35

This is a continuation of my previous posts. Please read the previous posts here.

Before I left for Kathmandu, I went for an evening out with some of my friends to celebrate my last few days of being a Bachelorette. I didn’t want something that could go out of control so we decided just to go out for dinner and drinks.

Hen's Party (1)

I went and bought a nice designer dress for the occasion, a pleated blue dress. All my friends wore black. We also bought a sash with a “Bride to be” written on it and badges for everyone with “Warning, Hen Party Member”. We picked a Spanish restaurant where they have dance in the evening.

Hen's Party (2)

We started the night with a drink, Sangria. It was amazing and the drinks just kept coming. Sangria normally consists of wine, chopped fruit, a sweetener, and a small amount of added brandy. It was followed by awesome tapas dinner.

As soon as we finished the dinner, the fun started. There were songs and dancing and they were teaching us how to dance as well. Being the bride to be that day, they took me on to the stage and taught me some steps. It was great a experience with lots of laughter and miss steps. I am sure by that time I was slightly tipsy as well. I hardly drink which means even just a few drinks makes me easily drunk.

All of us had good fun in the restaurant but we decided to leave the place to go to pub. It was Saturday night so the pub was really full. Good music was on the speakers so we went straight to the dance floor and grooved. We had a few shots of tequila but rest of the evening we were on the dance floor.

Around close to midnight, all of us were tired so we decided to call it a night.

Overall we had a great night out with the gals and the celebration of the last few days of my freedom.

Next post will be about my wedding preparation.

Take care,
