My blog is lovely and excited to meet M+K

My blog is not only gorgeous but also lovely, yey! =P Thanks Sis Carla for the tag. I am passing this on to my lovely friends Claire and Ria.

Great news, Harley and I finally have our leaves sorted out and plane tickets booked. We are all set to go home in July for two weeks to attend the Discovery weekend, have an initial gown fitting (scary), food tasting (droll) and book the suppliers that we still lack. When we realized that our schedule would be tight, we thought that fitting the prenup pictorial into it would be a wishful thinking. We only have just one day to spare for the prenup and the chance that Mimi and Karl are free on that day is very slim as they are of course very in demand in their field. But God is very generous to us, it turned out that they are free and they readily offerred to block the date for the prenup. Yey! It is going to be a "sulit" vacation after all =)

We will be having the prenup just within the Metro. Harley and I are still brainstorming where to do it (suggestions, please). Yes we are excited for it, and a bit apprehensive as both of us are camera-shy (hehe that's true, promise), but we are more looking forward of finally meeting M+K. We are fans of their works. Would it be jologs to ask for autographs? Haha

Finally, Stonehenge!

When Barbs told me that she wanted to go to Stonehenge, I volunteered to tag along. I had long wanted to go there, really curious of those big stones after watching a BBC adaptation of Tess of the d'Urbervilles (it's the book that Sharon's character received from a British oldie in the movie Caregiver - erm gets? hehe).

We booked a coach tour that not only took us to Stonehenge but Salisbury and Bath as well. It's an exhausting ride from London to Stonehenge and such a shame to just go there and see a bunch of bato (oh okay they're huge, but still bato :-|), we reckoned it's better to do some side trips. Here's the link of Stonehenge++ tours coach tour offered by Evan Evans Tours. I guess the tour we got was worth it, in just 10 hours we were able to visit 3 UNESCO World Heritage sites (Bath, Salisbury and Stonehenge).

Honestly, I think Stonehenge amazing. They say it was erected as a ritual site of druids. The first set of stones were laid down around 2400-2200 BC, an era when there were no machines yet capable of transferring large structures from one place to another. There were no steel so they had to carve those stones by sheer brute force using other hard stones. How those stones got there is still a mystery. Some claim they were built by aliens and that site is really intended for extraterresterial landings. Or maybe the druids just outsourced the job to the Egyptians? Hmmm interesting.
