I went to Kinokuniya Bugis juz now. Can't find French Without the Fuss by Living Language. There were 3 different kits tho. I bought French for Beginners or those who want a thorough view by Living Language. Happened dat someoned opened 1 of the boxes. I browsed thru the course book n find it pretty simple. Bsides it is the cheapest among the 3. Both Pausini n u v gd. Can pronounce French. Do u speak French in Singapore?
Many ppl told me French r v stuck up. U gotta speak a little bit of French (broken one ok) then they r willing to help. U v lucky to meet so many kind soul. Muz b bcoz u have a sweet n friendly look

Sorry! Haven't been checking this thread for a long time! Good to see so much updates here!
Sandgirl, both my hubby and I are fine now. Thanks for your concern!
I'm due for my 'final' fit with trial makeup at Dang this Friday at 6.30pm by Kelly Chavel. I hope everything will go well! Let you ladies know when I finish with that.
Sunshine and Renee, don't worry too much about your gowns and ps....it's still early actually. Plenty of time.
I'm the one who is early in doing all these stuff now. Hope that I didn't frightenyou all too much!
Jbride, must concentrate on you house now or else the reno don't turn out the way you want it lagi jia lat! Remember, whatever you do is more or less permanent and so this is definitely more important than your dresses for the moment.
Happybride, you are right in avoiding the same color of the waiters' uniform...don't think you want to look like their 'captain', right? Hehehehe....
What about a nice shimmering blue for your EG? It should bring out your fair complexion? I like the color blue a lot and so my EG is also blue. *hiaks...hiaks*
Txs. Saw picture. I dun like either. Too woody feeling.
Just to update you, I can't make it for gathering on 13th. 6th no problem. If majority opt for Saturady, Then I try to arrange to accomodate lor.
I went to International Plaza during lunch. Hoping to find a nice pair of silver shoes in Paradox London. Too bad, their silver look very dull. Like their ivory wedding shoes but dont know what to do with them after wedding.
Also went in to Leaping Lizard. According to them, for 4 inches shoes, need to have platform. If dont want platform, can only go for max 3.5 inches. What about yours?
happybride, since U got fair complexion, perhaps U can try lilac color which is quite close to light purple color.. i had this color for my ROM dress.. it does compliment with our complexion.
sunflower26, wat defects is there to yr new house? have U inform HDB about it? don't get so stressed up my dear friend.. relax, ok. U still have time.. don't worry..
mrs quake, long time no see U around.. U r welcome.. nowadays maintaining good health and strong body is very important. U must be excited about yr 'final' fit with trial make up.. do keep us inform.
me really "pei fu" u, can wear 4 inches. me very clumsy, walk on flat sole also can sprain my ankle. am still thinking how to cope with the 2.5 inches shoes which i intend to make from pedal works
i think u can still loan the accessories from the bridal shop for ur actual day if u really like them although it may be the norm that brides wear their own on the actual day. but must u pay for loaning the accessories from them?
anyway dun hv to worry so much abt not having sets of earrings etc. u will find something u like when u go shopping with ur mom...
happy gown fitting tommorrow. remember to ask ur hubby to bring camera n take pictures for us 2 see..ya
huh..........no $$ to go lah.....thnk save up next yr then thnk again loh......
havn inform yet...thnk hav to reply to them by next mon...cos 1 wk to sort out the defects loh...
got any good tailor or seamstress to recomd??
me got a low budget..bt would like to sew a dress for my sis n mum for the dinner.. n dad a suit n for my bro a pair of pants.... =P
Ya, got platform. I don’t like it also, look very Chor Lor but no choice lei without the platform, our leg is going to have a tough time. I think maybe by dinner time, you already have difficulty in walking. Ai yah, you’r tall, 3.5 inch is ok already lah.
So you mean they don’t want to loan you? How about actual day, morning becos u mention dinner only. That time my frd married, her set was from her bridal shop. But not sure FOC or need to pay renting fee. My bridal shop told me they will provide me so I assume actual day also include. Must check with them when I go for 1st fitting.
I very hiao, wear high heel can Niu my Pi Ku mah. So my normal working shoe normally 3 inch, addition 1 inch shouldn't have problem for me
managed to get your materials for cosages this afternoon? Maybe I see how you all do the cosages first, then decide if I want to do myself cos I haven't got time to go shop for materials ler. Dun know what to buy.
Went Robinson just now. They having sale. I got third revised quote from El-Fa ordei. Each time there is an increase in amount cos we keep changing the design we want. Although I like their workmanship, I still find the costs too high. Going to negotiate further with them. If they can give us a acceptable quote, we will sign with them. They are the one FH and me spent most time among all the ID we have got. Went to dicuss the design a few times, then Ivan brought us to three of the houses which they renovated to look at their workmanship.
Will keep you informed.
Robinsons having sale again. Now beside the 25% off, they got addition 15% off for purchanse above 1K plus 5$ for card members.
Yap, Grace got her flowers finally. Hope you enjoy her session with me yesterday. But we do have a fruitful achievement right Grace?
Me too spent most time with them. I hope to let them do too. We've drag for 3mths liao. If this still continues and draggy, i won't let them do. I dun have so much time for them too. What designs you want. Mine is a bit to resort so you see all the wood stuffs lah.
Besse, you leh?
When Grace and I was at spotlight yesterday, most of the items are cleared. Think you need to try other place for the flowers. Let me think where you can try hor. Maybe ava can help too.
Meow babe.. today fitting ar? hehe.. take meimei pictures and show us.. sneak your cam into the fitting area so they won't know.. hehe. cos last time went with Lynn they don let us help her take picts of her WG.. *grumble*
ID wise, we still ding-doining.. haiz. oso dunno how to settle?! a bit sian liaoz. we shortlised 3 - first designer v young in job, oni 3 mths, so no confidence to hand project to her altho she's v enthusiastic and full of ideas. 2nd designer v professional and gave good advice, but their workmanship was v disappointing. We asked for a 2nd house/site visit to have a 2nd opinion before throwing them out. 3rd ID is ELFA. price in the middle, but we are quite lukewarm to the designer.. hmm find him quite contractor like mentality. Their quote to us on the 1st cut doesn't look too way out, but guess can cut down if we negotiate hard enuf if we decide to take them.
bf suggest go two more to decide.. will update ya.. Then what you gonna do if you dowan to let El-Fa do it?? hmm.. you already looking for alternatives?
Leo.. today i going play mj at 5pm.. wahahha.. hehe.. anor, i quite lucky, can have v flexi hours.. but sometimes oso work like dog..
I have called Sharul (regarding the cards thingy) but yet to fix an appointment with him to discuss the itinery…
Now busy-lei ; P
Haven’t even tot of the full itinery yet… hee hee
How about you?
For the cards, you can just go to AWT and select the design that you like
Printing costs would be borne by us ; (
so u had a gd time shopping huh i'm still thinking *wink*
anyway, when we bougth mattress we had 25% + 100 + 5%
+ pillows + mp
so i'm quite happy
i think all these shopping centres quite smart
they play around with the % and $
but if you add up
it's abt the same unless you really spend a lot more
anyway, when shopping buy when you think it's a good buy and must not regret ok
i think the best place to get ribbons is at Arab street where they sell almost every type of ribbons. as for flowers, just look around the neighbourhood shops when you walk by sometimes there are some pretty flowers at a gd prc
what flowers are you looking for? maybe we can help keep a look out
i've selected my gowns for PS and 1 pc is a halter-neck, bare-back. I'm thinking that halters & necklaces don't go well & want to put some crystals tattoo on my back...the shoulder blade area...Do u all think that will look very cheapo/tacky or watever?
and do u know if i were to remove them after the shoot, will it be easily removed?
really appreciate some advice here..coz my husband dunno what it crystal tattoo.
I've you really do some calculation, think the diff is $100 leh. But i believe they will give all those items too lah. Well nevermind then.
Eh...you better think hor. Now i'm thinking what colour to spray on the letters. We bought a heart shape that fits nicely to the words. Very sweet leh. Hor Grace?
I also dunno leh. That's why did try to look for another that's what Vera comment workmanship same as el-fa. So ask them to quote. Will get result today. Will jus drop by el-fa show them something i want. Ask them to produce by monday. See how lor.
Me still the same. Dieting did not work at all so now just working hard to keep my current figure
n making myself look pretty
My GDL's on 7 June so still got 1 week. Anyway, most of things buy liao. O, your GDL's today. So maybe will 'see' u only on Monday then. Me will not be coming in for the next 2 weeks cos I will be at my HQ which made it impossible for me to log in at all
Was thinking that it is indeed a good idea to start early on my preparations 'cos now like nothing to do liao but wait for the date to come in order to do something.
They say stress will slim down. So maybe I am not stressed enuf
My hubby's suit we chose top of the line materials. It's 3 piece - vest, jacket & pants plus they chipped in a shirt for us. $750. For a simple 2 piece with regular materials probably about half the price. I also asked for extra fabric from the tailor and dressed up my hello kitty similarly
Mom's fabric we bought from Arab Street. I think about $110 for 2 persons, mom & MIL. MIL has own contact for seamstress who charged only $65 per person.
Both my gowns are halterneck bareback. I think if you wear halter shouldn't put any accessories around your neck. Crystal tattoos is a lovely idea.
I've got real tattoos on my back and arm so won't need the crytal ones lah
I oso haven't thot of my itinery. I oso very bz now that I have additional baby to take care at home. The baby is my hubby who is cramming for exams. So I have to make sure he eats. Sigh...
If I make a trip down to AWT, how will the shop know that we are a Raffles customer? Need to show anything? Actually I'm more concerned wif the exterior of the cards. The cards at AWT nice or not? Think I call Sharul this afternoon. Think I cannot meet the minimum number of tables!
