5 weeks and counting

i know there’s a lot of people and things i would miss. the UK will always be my second home. and we’ve planted roots here which just means we’ll never really be away for too long.

but i can’t say i’m not excited to be leaving. there’s just too many things to look forward to. and i can’t say i’m not worried either as i’ve never been out of work for the last 9 years.

at the moment, our house is turned upside down with most of our stuff waiting to go into boxes or sold off. we’ve instructed the letting agents. and are waiting for the tenants to be approved on both properties. hopefully, there’ll be no more viewings on our house lest they struggle to see past all the mess. work isn’t over until the 4th week.

we’re still working on the wedding details amidst all these. the invitations would need to be sent out to our non-manila based guests. and the legal and church requirements are being worked on by our families back home. i still haven’t heard updates from my coordinator and couturier. i’m still trying to accept that my maid of honour is not likely to travel to manila. the menu is still being ironed out. the florist still hasn’t sent in their contracts. still need to choose our principal sponsors. and i’m still trying to find accomodations for us to stay in for about a month in makati that doesn’t cost the earth.

something tells me it’s going to be a busy month.

  1. Wow, love the new digs! (wordpress)… It does seem like a busy month – but you’ll hurdle it well, girl. Good luck and God bless! πŸ™‚

  2. Final stretch! You can do it πŸ™‚ And if anything messes up it won’t matter because you’ll be too dazed and happy during your wedding you wont notice anything πŸ™‚

    Good luck!

  3. Hi Mai! thanks for the encouragement. you’re right, i know i’m going to be too dazed at the wedding. pero i want to remember every detail para ma-relive ko later. how are you? i hope you’re doing much better now.

  4. Hi, just worked my way back to this site from my stats page. If it helps at all, the Gilarmi apartments on Ayala Avenue near Rustan’s is a possible place to look into. It is tired and old but superb location and the prices are VERY resonable by makati standards, rouhgly PHP3000 a night for a two bedroom with kitchen. It may seem grungy, but its temporary. Also, there are several serviced apartments now in Salcedo that would run say $150 per night for a large apartment… good luck with your wedding!

  5. whoa! i had a comment from THE marketman. Thank you so much for the tips. I have checked out Gilarmi apartments and their monthly rates for a studio are ok. But the serviced apartments in salcedo are so pricey! but i am still holding out for short term condominium rentals. thanks again!
