Hello blog! Oh boy it's been a while. Since last year I think I've only had to legit posts lol. Mainly because as with everyone else - life happens. :p
I was trying to revive our blog for the past few days when I realized that our custom domain subscription has already expired. Basically this is responsible for giving us our ".com" email address turning it into www.delighteduniverse.com instead of www.delighteduniverse.blogspot.com. People do it for web traffic. :) For the past years our domain provider would message us when it was time to renew, however for this year, I didn't receive any email notification from them, and I also forgot about it altogether. So to my dismay, upon trying to access this blog again I only got "DNS suspended". Apparently it's been like this for 3 months already since June :-( Sorry readers! (nuks parang meron LOL)
Shout out to HostingManila.net. I tried contacting them to no avail. Their Facebook page has been inactive since 2013. They were gone with the wind. :'( It's one of the risks of online transactions, when they choose to disappear there's no number, no physical store to run to. I mean I'd perfectly understand if they had some trouble along the way and had to close down, but a notification for their clients should have been sent out.
At first I panicked about how the hell we'd get the blog back up, I felt like our blog address has been hijacked. But it turns out that reverting back from custom domain to the old "blogspot.com" domain is pretty easy. On the blogger dashboard you go to "Settings", visit the "Publishing" section, and click "x" in the Blog address. You will be asked if you want to remove custom domain and you can just hit "OK" and you're done.
So for now we'll be here, until I find a new domain provider. Any recommendations? :)

Ever since we saw a sexy blue super car stride in front of us at our jogging place at Southwoods City, we have been trying to drop by Aurelio Concept Inc which is a stone's throw away from where we'd usually jog, but we normally went on weeknights and we didn't want to be seen as trespassers. But today is the People Power holiday and so we managed to jog early morning and finally grabbed the chance to visit them.
We approached with caution because we expected the shop to be highly guarded with all the highly valued things inside, but this one was wide open. So we took the liberty to step inside and check out the cars. We gaped amazement at the 2 prototype cars displayed and another 2 that were still on its very raw form.
A Filipino supercar. I'm no hardcore car enthusiast, i just recently got interested because of our Daisy, but who wouldn't be amazed at the thought of a Filipino building his own line of cars from scratch, and a super car (think Ferrari and Lamborghini) at that?

continued from RnMDelights: The Team (Part 1)
If there were suppliers that Ray lost sleep on, it would have to be the Photo and the Video. He knew that these will be all that is left with us when the whole hustle and bustle is gone so we really have to ensure we get the best that we could have given our budget. Now when your man talks to you with so much passion, you have to agree because you know he's dead serious! :)))
Photography - Imagine Nation / Madoka Tomas and Betty Uy
So we devoured sooo many websites and Facebook pages of photographers. We knew that we wanted our photos to be light and fresh and natural. It took us months and a lot of due diligence when we stumbled on a bridal fair promo of Imagine Nation for one of their senior photographers - Madoka Tomas. We had to strip down the package to it's bare bones so we could secure a slot, and it was DANG WORTH IT.
Madoka was very helpful during our meetings on prenup shoots and viber discussions and gave her inputs on how we could set up the whole thing, mainly because me and Ray aren't used to posing in front of the camera. I mean sure we do a lot of shoots here in the blog but not with us as the subject haha puro pangselfie lang ang alam namin! She also made the effort to connect not just with us but with everyone else in the prenup team.
In the previous blog we talked about the preps, we shared with you the main resources that we used to prepare for the wedding, and gave an idea of how we worked together. We also gave you a quick rundown of the suppliers and wonderful people who helped us in this journey. This time we give a more detailed review of each supplier, and hopefully give an idea to brides-to-be out there scouting for their own dream weddings.
P.S: To our beloved suppliers, please do send us a PM if you'd like to use the photos :)
Church - Sto Nino de Cebu Parish
We couldn't have asked for a better place. When the preps were starting me and Ray were debating whether to get married in Cebu or in Manila. When "Manila" won, we went for Sto. Nino de Cebu because at least it still had a connection to his hometown. It was very accessible because of you could easily see this red church from SLEX . The package included full flower decorations, chandeliers, and the fountain at the back. It was a sight to behold during the wedding. ;)
