Bali Wedding Trip

David and I just flew home last Thursday night via Garuda. We were in Bali for 2 nights, for my cousin Olivia's wedding.
When we arrived, we got picked up and whipped straight to the resort I had booked. Two thumbs up for the good service!
I booked 2 nights in the Deluxe bungalow at the Bali Tropic Resort in Nusa Dua. I have to say, it's very Balinese.. as in they've made it a point to have Balinese architecture, and maintain a rustic feel (but of course, they do have all the modern amenities you would need).
Space is a great thing in this resort. Eachbalinese style cottage has its own balcony/patio bit, and you're not living too close to the next unit. I recommend this place for families, and for those who want to experience Nusa Dua in a more natural setting. If you prefer sterile environments (which I sometimes do!) then go for other hotels in the Nusa Dua strip like the Courtyard Mariott or Aston Bali. All 3 are in about the same price bracket - approx $130 - $160/night.

If you really want to pamper yourself - go for the St Regis Bali (upwards of $600 a night) or Ayana (approx $350 a night) ! 
They have a huge pool, 4 restaurants, a spa and a water sport type centre. 
We spent most of our time at the beach though... since it's just there at the resort and takes no effort to get to   :)
I super Love my new Contrast Pink Bikini.It's $39. 
For my cousin Olivia's wedding later that evening, I wore this bronze coloured toga dress from ClubCouture. A steal at only $49! The clutch is also from CubCouture. Black pumps are from Xquisis.
It was held at Ayana Resort at Jimbaran. That's a pic of the chapel (taken with the "dusk" effect from my Casio Exilim ZR20)
Everyone waiting patiently for the bride's arrival...
Groom and groom's men looking calm... :)
Beautiful bridesmaids Sarah and Renee.
I got a lovely shot of the couple exchanging rings.
What a gloriously sunny day it was.

    holly,ur skin looks glowing in this post.are you still using ettusais products for your facial routine?

  2. I love ettusais! It's esp good if u have oily/problem skin.

    Though currently, I am using Hada Labo... which I find very basic and affordable, but very very good esp for me cos i have dehydrated skin by default (lol).

    It's here-

    It's also cos i am using my favourite foundation from Shiseido -

    hi holly
    love how you did your hair at the wedding. could you pls do a tutorial on it? thank you! :)

    wow, love reading your blog. u look ravishing in the dress!

    I am getting married too, and having trouble with finding a nice evening gown dress. Do you have recommendation

  8. anon 11.10 - Yup he is a handsome man. And I never photoshop his face or what.. in fact, I never photoshop my blog photos (only add a tinge/wash like vintage effect, or maybe some text or adjust lighting/colour)

    @anon11.01 am - not sure if i'll have time to shoot video. But in a nutshell, I sectioned off the front part of my hair, hairsprayed it, and then back combed. Then I pinned it back with 2 pins.

    The hair bun is done with chopsick ( tutorial here - )

    Then hairspray the whole head to make it neat/sleeker.

  9. @anon 11.21- YES I DO!! I just modelled for a gown site last week. They design and make to measure gowns at very good prices.

    But I cant release their site yet. I will feature the pics I modelled for as well as their url .. on my blog very soon. Hopefullly in a a week or so.

    hope i don't sound rude or pervy but did you do some "enhancements" to your boobs? seems a bit fuller in recent months (and no, doesn't seem like you put on weight at all)! do share your secret ;)

    Hi Holly, may I know what is your height and weight? You look great! (:

  12. Nope... Still same. Depends on camera angle n wat I wear. Like the pink bikini on this trip is super padded, under wired. (not by me... It's created like that by club couture)

    But if I wear normal unpadded triangle bikini... Looks normal and not enhanced :(.

    Also, if I look bad in the pic, I prob won't put it up.


    1. Thanks!!!

      I think it's posture, proportions ... Cos I am actually not tall . 165cm, 48kg now

    bronze is a classy colour tht ppl dont wear more often, u look gorgeous n i love the way u did ur hair. n lol thank gdness ur fiance is tall- can enjoy wearing all the heels u fancy without reserve! :)

    n the wedding setting outdoors is very pretty :)

    wow, 48kg- do u have any diet tips? i know u dont eat carbs....but other than that? I am ur height too (n a pear shape) lol. it's motivating to imagine what i might look like if i lost 10kg :)
