No lah, not honeymoon. Just celebrate our 1st aniversary, base on our ROM date. I don't know should I said aniversary or not, me also blur. I don't know should we count anivesary from the date we ROM or the date where we have our customary. Should be ROM right?
Ya lor, 3 more days to go before we meet up. Me abit kang chiong. Gor the feeling like want to meet up with my Bai Ma Wan Zhi. Hahaha.....
wow suddenly got so many new May brides. Welcome welcome. Just out of curiosity, is May 3 a good date tat why so many weddings? Jazz, good job in compiling the list...very helpful.
Sue: Substance is at Wheelock place. Near Saki Sushi, i cant remember is it 2nd floor. But i dont remember seeing any very high heels wedding shoes. 4" u can walk? I think u need to custom made, very difficult to find so high a heel. Why they only give u shoes on actual day, what about photoshot? Who is your photographer...it is a little scary that they got 1.5 months to turn over the album. Do stress to the photographer that u must have it before May 17. May 18 is my ROM date, now i wonder why i am not having my dinenr on May 18 but on May 15. Cant remember why too...
Jan: Cheer up. I also only got 13 mth. what to do ...be thankful that we still got job.
BTW, anyone know anything about the Robinson Sale tonite? I did not receive any mailers. Can let me know what discounts?
kinda excited 'cos 1st time meet such a huge gals group.
hee.. sound abit chim for me of the design.
Think u can draw for us on Friday.
I can get some idea from there too. hee ~
hahaa.. u treat us as your bai ma wan zhi ahh..?
fluttering heart now? hee..
kiddg lar ..
My agency is SA UIC Tour. Enjoy their tour package + their beijing tour guide very good.
Yup we need to give some tips to the driver & tour guide. Each of them 50RMB, thus total 100RMB. But heng my boss paid for all of us. Think can be lesser one lor, but bcos we went as a company, so cant be too 'sia shui'.
Geesh.. i'm very lethargic now..wish friday can come faster..
yi - so thotful & sweet of your husband!!! you must have enjoyed your celebrations
wenn - i bought the her world mag yesterday. there were heaps of them in this bookshop when i was there in the afternoon. and i still have the 'luxury' to decide which colour of the shawl....hee.... really saleable for this issue.. must say!!!
MC yesterday, one eye not feeling very well, very itchy. Talk to my family doctor and he told me that may be i have start developing a sensitive eye. *sigh* I have sensitive nose then now my eye.
Hi to all the newcomers (too many name liao. hee hee... )
Why so many wedding on 3 May? heard is a good date for pple who born in the year of "dragon". Like me lor. helps in careers etc etc... Anyway, i wasnt the one who chose the date. I also got my wedding on 18 May too... So 03 May and 18 May!
Both my FH and I spotted Phillip Pixel Plus TV. Wanted to get a 34" one. Anyone got it? Any comments?
May, i think will be a good buy at Robinsons today. I also didnt get any invitation or mail from robinsons. My FH got it! Heard from the sale aunties at robsinsons that the organisation may only send out the news to their 80% cust cos they got too many cust and may not have enough time to send out all. So dun worry, as long as u are robinson card holder, u still can get it. Heard from my FH most of the items are on discount. some are discount on top of discount. As for quilt, MY FH got bad experience with his feather pillow. So he doesnt want to get anything with Feather. *sigh*
Jan, how is ur renovation come abt? Started? I think many pple are trying to get their big items before 2003 but may be they will absord the 5% again or the price is even lower to boost the market. now govt is trying to sign Free trade with other countries. if there is no tax on imported product then we may not able to feel the 5%. things may get cheaper also. Aiyo, never know!
How come so of u can have ur PS so late. I know Shook have taken. Anyone else? mine is on 16 Jan 03 cos my wedding consultant scare i will put on weight after CNY. SO she want me to have it b4 CNY.
BTW, can i know who is sending out the list? I didnt get it. Can email to me? [email protected]. Thanks!

i tink a la carte is a great idea if u've time n willin 2 make the effort 2 shop ard 4 everythg. may or may not b cheaper dependin who u r engagin individually. But the gd thg is u get everythg the way u wan it n not havin 2 compromise cos it's in a pkg.
if were 2 start all over again, i wud do tat. actually, initially i tink of a la carte cos i'm kinda fussy. then worried tat i'll overspend if a la carte so took up a pkg fr Frederick. in the end, i still overspend cos i dun like the EG by FL so end up buyin an EG fr avana 4 PS n another EG mtm fr TY 4 actual day dinner.
btw, w/c r the tailors, bridal shops, florists, photographers u shortlisted?
I'm a bit upset abt my photo shootingleh ! turn up not really what i want, especially for d outdoor...thinking of reshoot again but will spend more $$, so hv to take it lor ! my friend advise me that hopefully take a better one on a actual day, when i look at others couples photos turn up so nice i even more upset...
Don't be upset, what's with the photos that you don't like?? The photogrpaher style or the way he take outdoor?? Don't worry, you can still choose more for your indoor to compensate overall rite?
Yup, your fren's rite, you can take better one for your actual day....
hi gals, i'm back!!! sorrie, MIA for a day. was sick yesterday... ya, finally can't fight off the flu bug, so took a day off to rest rest @ hm. got headache so din log on also.
okean... guess you have a lot more info that i can give you already ya? so sorrie, i realised my notes are w hubby, but the few i can rem :
- think long jiang max 32-35. attended a wedding 2 yrs ago, food was very good. price in your range. plus hotel stay.
- dragon pearl @ taka. price in your range. plus hotel stay.
- dragon gate @ world trade. definitely can coz can hold up to 100 tables. food very good. price within your range.
- another ocean something @ paragon. quite like the layout. price within your range.
- grand city @ raffles city. think can hold abt 30+ tables also. like the food there.
- charming garden and dragon city @ novotel orchid. both too small.
- teochew garden @ raffles place. too small.
- some ocean something @ shaw plaza. too small, 16 tables oni.
- teochew garden @ centrept. sorrie, i booked liao.
but you have to make allowance for increase of your number of table, so you have to get somewhere which can prob hold abt 40 tables. hope these little info helps...
Tks for the advice. Yep, really hope it will not rain. Can rain on all other days except 13th.
Wah, 4", very high leh!! like walking on stilts *hehehe* but most importantly, nice can already.
Custom made quite ex. My friend made a pair for her wedding and it cost ard $80. I can buy 2 pairs with $80.
Ya, great minds think alike
i started my facial earlier this month just in case breakout still got time to heal. so far so good (touch wood!!). Going again today. It include shoulder/face massage. Will do body-scrub nearer the date.
Yr diet seems good but what I lack is discipline *aarrgghh* Must really discipline liao.
What do u all think about soap as wedding favors? FH and I wld like something unique and we r thinking of making soap as gifts. Will give friends only. Cannot include relatives, too many and don't think they will appreciate.
wat's wrong wif the photos? n who's ur photographer? can u request 4 some additional re-shoot? hav anyone else see your photos, may not b as bad as u tink. we tend 2 b more critical of ourselves sometimes.
will show u gals the photos but not so soon. i can only collect my proofs after the album is done. then will get a fren 2 scan 4 me, ok.
my wedding is in sep next year. i guess i still hv some time to shop around for everything.
WG and EG, not decided yet. will start my bridal shopping next month. definitely not going to those in IMM and taiwanese styled. i'm looking at $3500 and below for both MTM WG and EG.
florist - not sure too. for my ROM i've been to one at pasir panjang. was supposed to be cheaper than others. i got my 1 dozen special tulips for $75. i dont like big names like june/stepii/etc. i think theirs are kind of old fashioned.
photographers - memphis west or leonard photography. havent decided yet.
men's suit - i guess the average range is $700. we'll do just 1 suit. for the day and night, we'll just change the shirt and tie/bow.
Cheer up, like wat May said, b happy dat we r still employed n no pay cut.
Think u miss ur fiance v much, dat makes u even more demoralised. Think positive. Gime a big big grin
I recieved the list. Well done. Thx
Wat, u have ur ROM after ur customary??
1.5mths is very tight, v risky lei
Do take care of ur health.
I 4warded the list to u liao.
3rd May wz in the list of dates dat my hubby chose as ur wedding date. But I said I gotta close a/c n prepare mgt reports, so delay a wk lor. Sigh...Accounting line, wat a heck!! Otherwise another May 3rd bride.
BTW, I updated my ps date.
hi Vodka.... we 'met' again since our last 'chat' on FL thread...
ai.... me sort of discuss w him my WG. so sad, won't get to see till the 'final' stage.. then how, if not nice, die loh!!!! feel that i'm really at the mercy of him.. there's really nothing much i could do then to pray harder..
didn't know that you actually get another 2 more gowns from avana & TY. how much did you pay for TY EG? ai... don't know i will be like you in the end or not!!! everytime i think about it.. i really half-heartened.... SAD!!!
Your company is so good, give you free tour.
Me also SA(UIC). Ya, their tour guide is good. Their itinery was very tigh. Good is we can go many place bad is very tire. Your tip is cheaper, we paid RMB140/person(RMB20x7 days).
Still not yet. Actually my mind is set on Intercon but the addition things that I request she don't want to give me, so still considering. She give me until friday to reply her.
for bridal, i tink i saw fr somewhere u r interested in TY n FL rite? Y not keep ur options open n consider OTR as well, less risky, wat u see is wat u get n can cut cost a bit. u intend 2 keep both WG n EG? besides bridal shops, u can try tyan, bcbg, avana, francis cheong, allan chai boutiques.
florist - i was goin 2 recommend june cos my colleague highly recommend. she used them for her ROM at Ritz. effect not bad. my advice, dun spend too much on flowers cos not many pp notice.
photographers - how abt Everafter n Benny Ang
men's suit - my hubby's bro's suits r done at Dreamland, good workmanship n svc. Once hubby brought own material, they charge $350 for workmanship. This time for weddin, Hubby's use their material for both suit n shirt, cost $900. U can try Sze Sze at Hong Lim COmplex, veri experience tailors n cheaper. My dad's n IL's suits done there, $480 inclusive of material.
i like those "journalistic style" especially for d outdoor shooting, but turn out so so lor ! for my indoor i hardly find a nice close up photo, u know, some v small or nice one only hv B/W one, at the end i couldn't find a colour close up photo to develope into a 15" or 18"....,anyway, po-bianlah ! looking forward for my actual day photo on 12.01.2003...what to do !!!
ya lor, i'm really touched by hubby's thoughtfulness! hehehe
whereas all i do is arrange for yesterday dinner at merchant court althought it OUR birthday afterall! ;p
hubby gave me my 2nd surprise liao i.e. a bouquet of white calla lillies (my fav flower) just delivered to love nest! hehehe
i think he meant for me to collect from the delivery man coz initially he told me yesterday that he would go to garage to do his car while i wait for him at home but plan changed coz his dad changed car with him to go malaysia.
anyway, still touched by his plan!
but my poor hubby now down with headache so just taken a panadol and taking a nap now.
he says he dun wanna waste the day so he just sleep awhile and we go out.
me oso good gal lah coz just now i cook mee suah with a hardboiled egg for both of us! hehehe
as for the her world mag, i got one in red and one in green, the green one i use to place on my sofa at love nest at decorations! hehehe
u mean the thread on FL's voucher at Mktplace. i feel the same way, at his mercy but dun worry, his design cant go veri wrong.
me supper fussy, so end up gettin another 2 EGs. i went TY n wanted 2 rent a WG 4 PS cos FL cant get a OTR i like n in my size. somemore, at tat time, i din like the original design of my EG n he goin 2 modify for me. I kinda of unsure how's the modified end result so tot better standby naother EG. After i paid deposit @ TY n then 'scali' saw an EG at avana so bought tat one as well ($1000). Then i decided 2 convert my deposit 4 TY's WG rental 2 mtm cocktail dress. but after he did a sketch of the dress so much, i decide 2 change it 2 an full length EG ($1400).
hi all... sent you an email on this very yummy strawberry dessert that my colleague is selling. let me know if you are interested! its really good, esp if you are a strawberry person, with ice cream or waffles or juz on its own... salivating liao... hehehe...
Pausini: How much is the Philips TV? I heard it quite clear. what does sensitive eye means?aiyo, u better take care. Actually, i wanted my ps in jan too, but the photographer schedule fully booked so move to 14 March. My designer will get my gown ready before CNY so that i wont eat too much. Otherwise i cannot fit into the gowns for ps..ha ha...
Your schedule is alright for PS. So when will your gown be ready..soon right? What kind of designs u try?
There is a diff between down and down feathers for quilt. Your FH must have got the not so good pillows so the feathers sticks out. Remember to check feel carefully when u buy the quilt so as to make sure u get the good one with no feather sticks.
For big items, shld buy before gst increases, it will be diff for company to absorb huge amount.
Shook: no lah...i ROM last May. 2 years later than do customary.
aiyo, the robinsons sale is horrible. I called the customer service. There is a S$ 20 coupon that u can use for this sale. For those that are members but no coupon, u can collect it at 6.30 pm at the door at Raffles City Robinsons, they will give out at the door when u show your card. For Robinson CP, u got to collect it at the 5floor before 6 pm. Terrible mangement. Pausini: i hope you got the coupon from your FH to go for this sale.
