The Royal Wedding

The wedding of the year took place today when Prince William married Kate Middleton after dating for yonks!

The world finally found out what THE DRESS looked like and who made it, and millions of female teenage hearts broke knowing they would never be able to snag William and become a princess!

Was on leave so I didn’t miss any bit of the ‘live’ wedding telecast, me and Ma even snapped pictures of the TV! Nat and Gigi joined the festivities too, I think they were fascinated by all the royals.

No one does pomp and pageantry better than the Brits and that was evident for the world to see as the ceremony and celebrations went off without a hitch.

Guests were dressed to the nines and women tried to outdo each other with the tiny little headpieces called fascinators in place of hats. There were some fashion mishaps but most of the attention was on the bride, who looked impeccable, along with her sister Pippa who quite nearly stole the show!

Earlier in the day, I met Rena in town for a spot of shopping at Forever 21, followed by a private sale by the Valiram Group at the airport.

En route we saw this foreign family with a tantrum-throwing toddler at the MRT station. The 3 ladies looked on helplessly as the child stomped and rolled on the group and wailed her eyes off, for a few minutes, almost as if they were scared of her. I think they should have been more firm and just smack her, pick her up and leave the station!

The sale was a tad disappointing, thought they would have Fendi stuff but nope, there was mostly Coach and Jimmy Choos, some Bottega, Tods for men, Tumi, Shanghai Tang, Hugo Boss, Ralph Lauren. The Jimmy Choos were going for a bargain $129 per pair but for the large, odd sizes. We ended up with nothing for ourselves but some Ralph Lauren for our men. Was tempted by this Tods men's messenger that cost $488 only.

Lunch was at Crystal Jade, pigged out on La Mian and xiao long bao. Lovely day!
