Hi all,
How about Fish & Co at Suntec or Spaghetti's at Millenium Walk? Just a suggestion. But I am fine with the steamboat too. Just inform me about the venue once it had been decided. Can't wait to meet up with you all

There are certain markets where you can bargain in Paris. The hotel I'm staying was the one I stayed in the last time I was there. Saphir Grenelle. It's in the 15th arrondissement and it's two minutes walk from the metro station and a minute walk from supermarket.. very important for me to replenish my water supply .. heh.

The weather in Switzerland..not sure. But in Paris, it's around 25 deg c. I think they have rather chilling nights though. I think even hot, also won't be as hot as Singapore. They are not humid too. In Australia, the temperature can go up as high as 40 deg c.. and since it's dry, it's very very hot. I guess it will be the same in Europe, but since it's only about 25 deg c, it should be very nice, or why would everyone flock to Europe in summer? But I'm still a winter girl at heart.

If the cream is really good, I may have to go grab one or two myself. As I said, I could always help as I live really near a supermarket cum pharmacy - the Monoprix.

Hi Wendy,
I think all my close galfrens will want to be my jie mei, so it's not a matter of choosing, all of them will be in!
happy.gif
For me, frenship is definitely more impt that some auspicious number or wat crap, i wouldn't want to reject a galfren, or purposely invite someone i'm not close to, just to make up numbers... just my opinion, wendy, whether u have 1 jie mei or 100 jie mei, u must make sure these gals are genuinely willing to help u, and they are genuinely happy for u!
happy.gif
Otherwise, u will only create problems for yourself.... surely u have heard of stories where irresponsible jie mei disappear when they are most needed, or last minute say they are not coming, etc... The last thing u need is someone like that to spoil your wedding, agree?

Hi sue: I been to Pangkor island before, which part are u intend to visit? The last time i went we book a resort at the jetty at Lumut. Forgot how much but is really a resort lor, is a small hut. there are hotel there too but some said the beach other at the hotel side is not that beautiful anymore. I cant remember which month i visit the island, i encounter jelly fish so dun dare to swim. Infact, when i visit Bintan last yr also encounter jelly fish. the Jelly fish is like swim just beside me, i freak off. Ran very fast back to the beach. Told my hubby dun want to go down to water anymore. However, it can be very exciting seeing jelly fish swimming beside u but dun know got poison or not so i ran up.

Kare: I forgot to check the cream again. It is with my mum so i need to go back this friday to get the name. The cream can be found in most pharmacy. it is highly recommended by a colleague's wife. When we were there she got so many bottle back to SIN. I only get back two bottles never expect i need it so soon and the chance for me to go back France for work is not likely lor. I bought the cream at Arcachon the other part of France, i think paris is a bit more expansive. The cream is quite heavy so i dunknow whether u and shook will be able to bring it back for me. I see whether i can take a pix of the cream.

Shook: I bargain a bit at the small stall but i dun do that at the shopping center. When u vist the effiel tower there will be alot of pple asking u whether u want to buy the sovenior. That one can bargain...

Hi Priviledged and sweets

On my first march in there is something wrong with the music, therefore we waited at the entrance for a while. Fortunately it is not half way going to the stage, therefore I feel it is not so bad and my guests doesn't seem to think that that is a long interval. So lesson to learn is that please remember to check that all your CD are in order. Bring your CD to play at the ballroom first.

Other than that, keep a cool head and try not to talk to your husband during the wedding, my experience is that it will be captured on the video camera! Doesn't look nice at all.

Oooh...if your colleague's wife lugged back so many bottles, that means it's really effective? You've used some yourself, what do you think?

All
I am all for meeting. Byt I think by the time everyone settles down, it'll be in July? Shall we set a date for July? I've been wanting to meet everyone for the longest time ....!!!! I'll only be back on 27 June.

I realised I didn't answer your questions. heh.. yah I enjoyed my wedding (evening especially) very much. And the two nights stay at the suite was perfect. SO and I spent so much time together, it's very nice. I tell you hor, last night, I cried because I miss Fullerton. It was such a good time we spent there.

And I wanted to say .. by the time we get to meet finally, if we do meet, you'll definitely be 'fatter', won't you??? LOL! Looking forward to putting more weight or not?

The steamboat I mention is the one at suntec. Ya, the food is quite nice. I never eat at suntec before but another outlet at Lucky plaza.

Hi brenda,

you can search on web engines for these dates. You have to exercise caution though cos some dates may be suitable for some couples but inauspicious for others. Some of the calendars refer to China/Taiwan locations and the same date may not be good here. It is always best to ask the experts.

HI girls,

Long time no see...how are your preparations?

Hi Lynnie,

HI Beibei,

Hi Renee,

I guess I'll leave everything to Michelle. I'll be going for my 2nd appt next week... will see Michelle's proposal then.

I signed up last year.. but I think BV arranges the apptointment dates based on the photography dates... working back from there. I had only confirmed my photographer and photography date with them in late april. I guess because your photography is much later in November, that's why your appointment is only in July. In fact, based on the photography date, you'll have a longer preparation time.

Hi Wen,
the TY I saw when I was scouting packages, the lady basically had a bustier A-line with triangular pieces of tulle attached to the dress- very sculptural and modern.

My boutique's version sounds closer to the Martha Steward's you described! Bodice is pearl-beaded heavily, feather/ leaf/ petal-shaped organza on an A-line skirt. A friend said it had the Midsummer Night's feel too, ethereal, floaty.

I'm adapting mine to have less beading on the bodice- in crystal instead of pearls. My skirt is flared slightly bigger too, cos I don't look good in straight-down skirts. Short mermaid train. Maybe I'd have my petals in varying sizes- smaller around the hips and bigger at the base. Must stop thinking "feathers" heehee so won't think of feather-duster
sad.gif
)

I think tulle is "lighter" than organza in feel (except tulle sometimes looks close to gauze netting).

How many different gowns are you ladies having? Now I'm wondering if I should forget the Kua and have a nice expensive cocktail gown (I can't put Arab St's fabrics out of my head!).

hi gals,

seems like everyone's going to europe! how i envy u gals! i would be leaving for bali this sat ... decided on bali cuz both hubby & i could redeem our krisflyer miles for free tixs there. so figured we should save some $$ for our new house (which would TOP by next month)!

now we r busy shopping for furniture and browsing thru ID magazines for ideas. boy! really not cheap to do up a house nowadays.

ok ... i'm for the idea of meeting up too. seems like july would be a more realistic date since most of us would be away this month. to all those who r leaving for their honeymoon, enjoy yourselves ... would probably be a long time before we would be able to take such a long break again
happy.gif


oh .. and i really want to thank everyone for their advice and tips for my wedding prep! was really helpful and good to share our problems with each other. thanks, gals

What grace said oso correct, we still have to be very careful on hygiene. Then we better give up steamboat. Any objection? How about japanese food? There is a fiesta there. If not how about Tony Rama?

Meow,

I not sure which restaurant you refering. Me lazy type, normally don't look at the restaurant name unless I dine there b4. Now i recalled, is that the shop that sell tonics soup?

hi girls,

since we are meeting at Suntec maybe we can consider Marche too. a variety of food to suit everyone, though can't remember if Marche does Japanese. one more option to confuse everyone

Hi MT,
sorry... not sure which one u r refering to... is it one of the designs in Female Brides? He uses lot of pleated tulle for his latest design. For tulle, only the spaghetti strap gown with sleeve attachment. The rest are mostly organza.

I have 3 different gowns for dinner. For cocktail, will be wearing my WG. Then change to EG for second march-in. And to my tea dress for farewell. No kua.

Hi Leo29
Dont think can make reservation. Went to the Marche in Heeren. They refused to let us in until the whole group has arrived. not sure about suntec but think should be the same....

Hi Shirlynn
Long time didnt c u coming in liao... how s everything? Have you selected your gown from bridal?? EG?? Last heard is you went to buy material - so what did u get?
 

yve

hey gers,
Do wear a tank top inside the kua. Helps to absorb perspiration and u never know who else has worn it before.

Hmm, maybe i will wear the kua during cocktail. WG during 1st march in and EG during second and farewell.
