Both of us wanted something simple – so we didn’t have a formal engagement ceremony.

What happened on 1st  January 2016- his parents came over, and we did a simple sarung cincin. The engagement ring was a simple gold band from a shop at Joo Chiat Complex. I had not requested for anything more fancy, as I wasn’t going to wear it daily. To me, its just a symbol of commitment, that’s all.

The ring was also kids’ size as I have super thin fingers! Once the ring was placed on my finger by his aunt, we all had some light bites prepared by my mom and some kueh I bought.

I loved the engagement cake, which was ordered from Hipster Bakes – a pretty 8 inch chocolate cake frosted in pink buttercream rosettes. It looks good and tastes good too – wasn’t overly sweet.

Am thinking of engaging this talented baker for my wedding cake! Check out his other creations!

Everything wrapped up within a few hours – fuss free just as I like it!
