Gladz is literally my first friend when I first set foot here in the sandpit 5 years ago. She was my roommate and the only person who taught me how to cook adobo. I can still remember those days when we were just sharing a double deck bed in a 3 bedroom apartment where i think 20 people lives. It was during that time when I was welcomed to the reality of adulthood, what OFW life is like and how to live on your own. We were happy just having a 5 dirham shawarma every night for dinner. Well, those were the days. Look how far we’ve come now. She’s now getting married and I finally got my own apartment!
I was so happy when I heard the news so of course I was very happy to say yes when she asked me to do the honor of designing her wedding invites. Gladz wanted a simple and minimal design with dark blue motif and an invitation that she can DIY. She will print it herself and just add some finishing touches like ribbons etc. I personally think that one shouldn’t spend loads on a wedding invitation so if you can do it yourself, why not??? You can save loads which you can then just invest on the reception or catering fee. 😀 I was glad she liked it and I seriously can’t wait for the wedding itself!
We had a bit of a catch up as well since we haven’t seen each other for ages! We decided to meet at one of my favorite cafe in Dubai – Roseleaf. If you want fresh food and a place where it’s not crowded, go there! It’s inside the Dubai Garden Centre so you can also do some plants shopping. This is where I bought all of my cactus (cacti).
She bought me chopsticks and apron in honor of us becoming more domesticated as time goes by. lol.
