Of Wedding Photos and Torture Chambers

Ahhhh... finally. After browsing and comparing loads and loads of bridal studios and event management studios (oh ok, maybe i'm exaggerating a lil..), we finally decided on StarEast. They used to be called Wedding Bells, till some big kahuna of a bridal management company in Penang calling themselves (surprise-surprise) StarEast bought them over this year.

Their package was quite good, in fact so good we signed up on the spot (after listening to them and viewing photographs for the better part of 4 hours). Talked to their sales personnel, their photographer, negotiated better deals, bla bla... and ta-da, thats another to-do item struck from my list of wedding preparations. Phew.

2 dates in July standout in our calendar at the moment... 2nd July, thats the "J to try on gown and hope I pick the nicest one and hopefully I don't look fat in it while Eugene sits around fidgeting day" and 12th July, thats the actual photography day. Haven't really decided what kinda wedding photographs to take.... so here are a couple of samples that'll give you an indication of the 'difficult' choices we have...

el-classico poses

sensual and sexy poses

traditional garb

or my favourite... poolside wet and sleazy....

Choices.. choices... choices... Well, when's all done and over with, be sure I'll post em pictures for you to see... Wouldn't want to stop you oooooogling at my wet abs rite??

Monday..... was pure hell... physiotherapy took on a whole new meaning once my stitches came off. More like physioterrible to me. One look at my sorry quadriceps (thats the thigh muscle to the uninitiated) and the therapist sent me packing off to the gym section. You're not gonna believe this, neither did I at first when he showed me my schedule (but I'm proud I got thru it) as it has only been 2 weeks since my knee op.

1. 15 mins stationary bike
2. 15 mins 4km/h walk on treadmill
3. Patella mobilization (This helps loosens the tightneess in the kneecap due to scarring)
4. Ultrasound treatment for pain around the knee
5. Leg presses @ 80 pounds for 100 reps
6. Calf presses @ 40 pounds for 50 reps
7. 1 leg press @ 50 pounds for 50 reps (both legs)
8. 15 mins Ellyptical machine
9. Half squats (no weights) for 50 reps
10. 1 leg quarter squats for 30 reps (injured leg)

Whoa. My whole lower body is aching today. Its a condition they call waehkhachui chinlanthia. No kidding. It'll take at least a couple of days to recover from that syndrome. And I'm gonna expect more of that on Thursday when I go there again.

Btw, on top of all that physical exertions, I have been religiously going to the gym with B (remember him don't you?) at least every other day. Glad to say he's making good progress and mindful of his diet as well.

His lunch menu today consists of 2 glasses of shake in fact, low fat and high protein shake. Recipe included below:

1/2 handful of almonds
2 tablespoons of raisins
small cup of cornflakes
5-6 slices of mangoes
1 small cup of yoghurt (low-fat)
2 glasses of low-fat milk

Blend it all in. Servings for 2. Enjoy.
