Not really so fantastic on my WG back. But just accept it lor.


Hahaha.... so co-incident hor. Singapore is too small lah.


Last sat went to Personality to make my hubby shirt. Wow... his business is so good. The customers keep on coming in. My hubby find his workmanship good so decided to let him make 2 more pants. Spent $300 plus there lei.


So qiao...., my hubby also intend to buy me a running shoe. He went to Queenway last week but can't find a nice shoe for me. Last sat at Penisula also can't find a nice shoe, sian.....


New Member

New Member
I'm feeling so sour abt the whole dinner thing! I'm sensitive to criticisms and all these is getting on my nerves. THis morning again got so frus with my SIL over seating arrgmt. I talked directly to her bec I didn't want my brother to be put in diffc position. Expcted her to be more understdg and sympathetic given that elders' wishes is something I cannot ignore. Shocked to find out that she is not in the least sympathetic and seems to imply that I'm not being sensitive to her and my brother's needs!!


Hi all

thot i just come into this thread to kay-poh kay-poh, cos i was an Oct bride before! Actually, just last year!

And this is freakish. My wedding was on Oct 4 as well!!!!!


New Member

May b I go to his office tis weekend to scan. Hopefully his colleagues not there.
Agee wif Pausini, u can afford to put on more wt.

Poor poor Pausini. Now dat u dun wanna loose wt. U loose wt. No worry as long as your gyne said ok
Hello knock knock, I din post my photos leh.

New Member
Hi itch

any advise on last minute things to attend to?
I have only 10 weeks left !!!

AH !!!!!!!!!!

Hey rhs: i'm sure you'll look great for your photoshoot with chris ling! Dun worry k?


New Member
basically your sil is like that cos it's not her wedding. explain to your fh and ask him to settle with your sil. no need to talk to her n make yourself so frus, ok?

will pray for you. don't agonize too much abt this cos the wedding's only hours away now. we are still here (i will be here).


New Member

Hi Serene,

It is the same shop at Chinatown that sells those guo da li stuff. They have very nice bedside lamps.. got those one pair of swans... and also got the grandfather-grandmother pair.. very cute!


hey 1027

when you do the countdown in weeks, it actually sounds much shorter than I thought it was! *heart palpitating*


New Member

Interested in their Sofa but haven't contfirm becos I find it quite ex-$1500 for the 3 seater wood sofa and somemore the workmanship is not so good-undestood becos their furniture is from Thailand. Now we are considering whether to buy this set or another set from Cellini(Cheaper).


No attitude lei, a nice guy. Maybe becos i told him someone recommend him to me.


New Member
matka!!!! now that you mention it I have a sudden panic attack!! Haven't done anything other than preparing for PS

Gals, if any of you are interested in yoga, I just received an e-mail from Yogaspirit. You can e-mail [email protected] or see http://www.yogaspirit.com.sg for address/contact number

Leo, yeah agree that their furniture can kill. I also like the sofa, but too ex liao. Rather go somewhere else to look for it.


Hi rhs

mi just went for PS last week. agree with 1027, you'll look great for your PS with Chris Ling. just tell him the setting you prefer and he will bring you to places he is familiar with. No. of locations really depends..

Can you tell me the shop at Chinatown that sells those guo da li stuff? thanks


New Member
hi everyone

finally our weddings r over. my wedding went very well too.

now learning to adjust to married life and going to in laws house for dinner..

happy adjusting all and do keep this thread alife okiee. now we tok abt marriage life oready.


New Member
hey nicky,

its always nice to hear "happy" weddings ....

You living with husband w/o inlaws ? so how often do u have to go back to in laws for dinner...I've a fren who allocates 3 days of a week to each set of parents leaving 1 day for themselves....so siong...


New Member
Welcome back! Wow.. now after wedding, can afford to put some weight ah. And like the other girls say, you can afford to put on. Not like me. Haaa.. so when are you leaving for NY again? How long?

Okay, back to topic. 25th is great. I'm still on. Can still try the dinner buffet. But the high tea was awful. The quality wasn't there and the food wasn't too great. Not recommended for sure. But the scenery was great. Can look at Fullerton and bring back memories of my wedding. Sigh, sigh.

I forgot the number already. Maybe can call 100 for it.


New Member
A...sorry, wat number did I request fm u?

So who's on on 25th Jul? So far May, Kare, Pausini, Shook, oso32 rite? Who else wanna join? Looking forward to more names


New Member
Hey HF! You're back
Thank's for the assurance. I'm so looking forward to it ...

Pardon my ignorance, but what's guo da li? Is it the one where you exchange gifts like foods, fruits, shoes, etc?


New Member
Pausini: 3 pairs ok lah..i cld have bought more but no see anything nice. it is nice to be pamper by yr own mother now that you are expecting. good, drink more tonic to nourish yrself.

so who will be looking after yr bb? yr mom or MIL?

Shook: tot that your photos were ready...ok...will wait patiently then. You will need time to scan the photos.

Oso: the tel number is 6431 6156. Specifically ask for the Plaza Market Cafe promotion. Actually Prego is also offering 1 for 1 dinner promo but it is not applicable for friday and Saturday.

Kare: My dates are not firm. I am leaving in the first weekend of Aug and i will be NY for abt a week. I hope to catch a broadway musical this time. Not really looking forward to the trip because of the long flying time. More than 20 hours...gosh.

I am going to call to make reservations at 6.15 pm for 6 pax on 25th July.

Oso, when can you confirm that you can join us? Shook, can you check if Jazz can make it?


New Member

yeah, once you can actually count the number of weeks (esp with your fingers!) you really start to panic!!

Was telling my colleague that i was having butterflies in my stomach for no apparent reason when i reaslied i only had 10 weeks left !!

Hi HF, haven't seen you around this thread for a long time! How was your photoshoot? Where did Chris bring you to for your outdoor? He is very fast in taking the indoor shots hor?
You should have collected your sample prints already right - you like it?


New Member
hi kk,

til now i still dunno where is the shop in chinatown that u mentioned. can give me the address or location of it? nid to buy the guo da li stuff this mth.

also , can i chk with u gals : can i use normal bedside lamp & on it the nite b4 wedding instead of those traditional marriage lamps?


New Member
hi sweets and nicky....
yeah... its kind of a transition for me too... nowadays i go back my mum's for dinner on weekdays cos i stay v near my mum.... then usu will devote either sun or sat to my inlaws' place for lunch or dinner.

now got to adjust to cleaning up ur own place, washing ur own laundry, ironing etc. kind of different for me cos my mum is a full-time housewife and so she takes care of everything in the house for us...

sweets.... dats v siong for ur fren leh...


New Member

Envy u got the chance to travel so much. Then again travelling 4 such a long hr alone is no joke. So u celebrating our National day in NY?

I got reply fm Vin n Jazz. Vin joining us. Jazz has tuition on Fri. She will join us after her tuition (ard 9pm) if we r still hanging ard.


New Member
Gals, Plaza Market Cafe is fully booked for the month of July. The only available dates they have in Aug is 22 August.

We either go somewhere on the 25 July or meet on the 22 August.

What is the preference?


New Member
Sounds like a huge crowd. Wow.. yippee!!

I agree with Shook. So envious that you're travelling. And still have time to catch a musical.

I don't know if hanging onto 22nd August is good since we've waited a long time :p But I did warn heh that Market Cafe is in huge demand. But still, I didn't expect the whole month of July to be booked! I thought the promotion will end by then? Prego is good. Too bad they don't hav
