It's been well over 6 months since I last updated on SG. To be honest, I wasn't planning on doing a written update, and just wanted to do the GA dump and be done.
I haven't been on SG much over this time, but I've "leached" some GAs, etc. and actually won some 20+ GAs. As such, I felt it necessary to provide at least a mini update.
I gave a fairly detailed update about a year ago, here. Continuing from there, there has been a further 2 postponements of my wedding. The first time the date was moved was due to a second wave of COVID-19 causing some planning around vendor bookings as well as getting everyone we wanted at the venue, them having cut down the max capacity.
This wasn't too much of an issue for us. The second postponement, however, hit far closer to home. Sadly, my fiance lost her dad in December, which was a major loss. At that stage, we were even considering not doing a full wedding and looking at alternatives. However, after some discussions with family and friends, we decided to proceed, using the occasion to honour his memory as well. We are now 2 months away from that date. We're about 50% through planning, so it'll be a bit of a rush during this time, which is extremely difficult for us to manage given our workloads and after-hours commitments. So, here's hoping everything runs smoothly between now and then.
On a slightly more positive side, both myself and fiance have been recognised at our respective workplaces. The rating systems, etc. means that we're due increases and a potential bonus on my end, which should at least take care of all the wedding stuff without dipping into our savings, which we'd like to use for a house later in the year (also postponed as a result of the above-mentioned).
Anyways, I've added a 50-cart train of leftovers since my last GA dump. Majority of these are bundle extras, so hoping no one minds, and that none of the keys/links are faulty or previously redeemed. Thanks for all the support over the year, and wishing everyone success and pursuit of happiness for the rest of 2021.
Your travel journey begins here!

Thank you, I hope you two have a wonderful wedding :)
I truly hope that you will be able to have your wedding as planned. It is nice that you are going on with it to honour the passing of her father.
Take care, and I hope that the rest of 2021 is good for you.
Thanks. Much appreciated. Crossing fingers!
Wish you a happy wedding
Thank you for the cool train! Condolences for your fiance's (and your) loss, sadly I know the feeling.
My best wishes for your wedding. And from my own experience: The less you worry about everything being perfect and focus on having the right people around you and enjoying the moment, the better the whole experience will be. There will always be the odd thing that doesn't go according to plan and throws you a little curve ball.
But it will be perfect, because by the end of that special day you are married.
Very much agreed.
All I wanted was good food, good company.
No one is going to remember draping, or what forks they ate out of. :D
Thanks a bunch!
Terrible crisis, but I guess you're a strong couple (perhaps even stronger for that) so let me just wish you both an easier and smoother beginning of a new chapter, and much happiness❣
Much appreciated! :)
Thank you for the ride. :)
Also good luck with all the preparations and hope you will have a great wedding! :)
BUMP wonderful train^^^THX
Bump & thanks for the ride! :D
i have em all but bump it up <3
Ah, next time you'll be able to join the train! Hopefully, before end of the year.
Wait, you still haven't gotten married? Sheesh! :P
Seriously though, despite the setbacks, I love how you stay positive, and the raises/bonus are a "silver lining" with regard to the timing and covering the wedding expenses. I'm truly sorry about your fiance's father passing, and I know there's still a lot of planning to do with little time to do it in, but I know you'll pull it off, and hope you have a wonderful wedding! :)
Nah, it's been 3 postponements. Finally just going ahead, even if they cut out numbers.
But yeah, the news on increases and bonus came at a really good time, especially since there hasn't been for the past 2 years.
Thanks for the message!
