More updates..

With time, we attend classes together, eat together..and got to know each other better with each day...

And one fine day after our exams a semester after we known each other. We went shopping together and then to watch a movie..

Its been close to 2 Months since we are married. I know this blog seeems a little redundent by now. Then again, I would like to update some of my Work in Progress for my Animation used on my Wedding..
And while I am at it, I decided to share our story...
It was our first day of school. after a hiatus. With 2.5 years of National Service. I was totally lost. I haven't attend any classes during that period. The thoughts of learning more about science and biology was exhilarating.. but I saw something or rather someone..
that changes my life forever....
I met her...

More Work in progress pic coming soon..

Time really flies, its months ago since I started this blog to update on my wedding preparation. And before I know it, I am going to fetch my bride in less than 10 hours time. In other words,
I am getting married tomorrow.
sincere apologies to those that have visited this blog several times and realise it has not been updated since ages ago.

Much of my free time was devoted to work on the animation for my wedding night.

Here's some of the work in progress pictures of what you would expect in the animation.

Dream alittle dream of me.
When in love.. there is only one thing in your mind... the one that you love.
The sky is a little brighter and everything in the world seems to smile on you.
Basically you are out of your mind cos He or she has taken all the place there is.

The hunt for my proposal ring.

Back in 2005, much inspired by my friend's wedding. I am convinced to craft and execute my proposal in the coming months.

But first, the Ring. The diamond ring. With so many brands, adverts and fanciful gimmicks (i.e Brilliant cut, Radiant cut and what have you) I am totally clueless.

On the survey trip
I walked into one of those Jewellery shops and check out their flagship diamonds collection. They were dazzling, but its the price tag that was blinding and forbidding. And I soon realise. that the International Certified diamond with similar carat cost much cheaper. That every moment I realise that Diamond is indeed more than meets the eye.

Understanding Diamonds
In today's world anyone can be an expert in almost any subject with the vast amount of knowledge available on the internet. And I found this site. http://www.jewelbasket.com/aboutdiamonds.html

Just a brief summary for those guys out there shopping for a diamond ring.
1. The 4 Cs that matters, 1. Carat, Clarity, Cut and Colour.

Many experts name color as the number one consideration in choosing a diamond. A diamond's color is graded on an alphabetical scale from D-Z, with D being absolutely colorless and Z being light yellow. Beyond "Z", a diamond is considered to be an exotic or "Fancy" color.

And they offered a very helpful chart. (check link above)

Since color differences can be so subtle, they are impossible to determine by the untrained eye. To grade a diamond, gemologists often place it on a white background next to another diamond that has been previously graded.
If all other factors are equal, the less color in a diamond or the higher color rating, the more valuable a diamond becomes. Likewise, as the amount of color increases, the price of a diamond decreases (though this does not necessarily reduce the beauty of a diamond.)

To view a diamond, experts use a 10x magnifying loupe which allows them to see the appearance of tiny crystals, feathers or clouds. These natural phenomena are called inclusions.There are five categories in class that anyone interested in purchasing a diamond should be aware of when grading clarity. ( Actually how often do you look at someone's diamond through a magifying glass? Its the size that matter! To me at least. And if they do, isnt it better? Hahaah)

Flawless-Internally Flawless
Very Very Slightly Imperfect
Very Slightly Imperfect
Slightly Imperfect

FL (Flawless) - IF (Internally Flawless)Flawless Diamonds reveal no flaws on the surface or internally are the rarest and most beautiful gems.
Internally Flawless Diamonds reveal no inclusions and only insignificant blemishes on the surface under 10x magnification.
VVS1 - VVS2 (Very, Very Slightly Included)Very difficult to see inclusions under 10x magnification. These are excellent quality diamonds.
VS1 - VS2 (Very Slightly Included)Only looking through a 10X loupe can pinpoint the inclusions in this category and are nearly impossible to see with the naked eye. These are less expensive than the VVS1 or VVS2 grades.
SI1 - SI3 (Slightly Included)Diamonds with inclusions easily identified under 10x magnification. Finding flaws in this category with the naked eye is difficult. The gems in this category maintain their integrity, depending on the location of the inclusions.
I1 - I3 (Included)Diamonds with inclusions which may or may not be easily seen by the naked eye. The flaws on the stones in this category will have some effect on the brilliance of your diamond.

More on diamond on my next post.

A little more than 6 years ago... We met. And in time we fell in love, and got together. It wasn't smooth and not arguement free, as a matter of fact we just had a fight right before this blog was created. But there are no relationship without argument or disagreement. With each fight we get to know each other better and becomes stronger. We will not know of the future but while we are in a relationship
we believe in staying committed, faithful and do everything we can to keep it strong.

Relationships in today's world is often short-lifed, a lot of us cares too much about themselves, ourselves and our goals in life than really sparing a thought for our partners. And temptations are too great as the world gets smaller and the social circle gets bigger.

In this blog, we will pace the path and preparation (in Singapore Context) to our holy matrimony.
