Yep, I have to personally deliver the cakes with the invitations cards too.
Had the food tasting yesterday. So many comments about the food. Changed the chicken in the sharksfin to crabmeat, add $10 per table. Changed the cabbage roll to yam ring. Steam seabass was too dry, told them to make it more moist. Thought of changing to groupa, but that is additional $35. Mother kept quiet after knowing that. Suckling pig skin not crispy. The best dishes are the deep fried prawns with honeydew salad and the roast chicken. The honeydew can be cut smaller lor. And the cake-mousse dessert got the go-ahead from the mothers. No need to change to tang yuan in red bean soup.
Suntec re-numbered the tables so that there are no fours. We got the floorplan yesterday.

Hi to all coming 4/5 Oct brides,
Stressful hor .. did you use any aroma oil to help you releasing stress and sleeping nite... play some slow music also... you must de-stress yourself first in order to be mei mei on actual day hor.
oo so you didn't pay the remaining balance, so lucky we refused to pay the whole thing. hee... glad that you like your photos! but 50 is a lot hor, i'm thinking of only topping up enough to get the negatives back, then develop myself.
thank you for your compliment
you're right, i am not a local, i am from indonesia. i still don't know how many pictures i want to top up.
are you taking photos with utopia too??
hi chicory and sandy,
thanks for the compliments. hee.. i don't know yet which one i want to enlarge.
chicory, when is your ps??
I still cant receive it..haha...something wrong with my email.. * waiting anxiously*..
try again can? muackss
tks! me haven upload indoor coz the file is not usable in webshots. so find it difficult to upload. must show us ur pics hor! dont envy my "meatless" figure,my arms are skinny and hips bigger. inappropriate figure..hahaha
long time no see! must show us your pics hor..keke
I will be going down to pay the next 40%..sigh..time flies.
for the strings to tie inserts wif cards, can try Popular bookstores and Concourse!
think..popular selling at $4.50 per packet but dunno how many r inside...
me haven been there yet but these 2 places r given to me frm fbo...
Food tasting? Me Not yet, have U?
How about the deco theme? U decided?
Are u taking the free poster? me maybe not, i think guest book is better for keeping....So i'll be buying one myself..PP doesn't have any more contract with the guest book supplier anymore.
Have u collect your inserts? Mine should be ready by 13th Oct.
Thanks for the string info...
I will take a look at the mag...By the way have you collected your cards. I had finished tying them with the strings last week. Have you bought the string if not can pass over to you? Mine is silver string, see if it suits your card.
I have some problems, my photographer has some urgent matter cropped up so gotta postpone my PS and due to postponing of PS date by ourselves once, now photographer, my make-up artist wants to back out now... really stress...
Somemore i am sick and on mc the last 2 days, they still stress me like that... Dunno if i want to plead with the MU artist or take the other MU artist BS assign to me... What would you all do if you are in my shoes?
don't get too stressed too much first. take care of your health cos that's the most important thing. drink lots of water, take vitamin c, okay?
do you like the works of your make-up artist a lot? if not then, maybe you want to consider hiring someone else. you have not paid for his/her service, have you? i can recommend sam ong for ps, he charges $500 for ps make-up including a trial.
Me also have not go for my fd tasting but think will do it in mid oct...deco theme...me also hav not confirm wif her but tat time i signed wif her, she told me can hav a mix of garden n candlelight theme!
U mean the free poster replace our guestbook?
I think I will be taking the free poster for display so ur guests koe where to go?heee..anyway is free....just take it...
I also hav a guestbook - a rom gift frm fren...me gonna use it too
DK n wedsoon,
Me just collect my inserts today n also bought the gold strings frm T dragon cos lazy to go concourse + calculate the transport fee...almost the same price liao!!
u r so fast leh!finish tying liao...me gonna start soon..sian..
thanks for ur offer of the silver string but me cant use it as i nd to hav gold string n i bought it liao too...perhaps can offer to DK?
DK, ur cards r ivory n insert tracing paper or ivory color, silver can go well wif it!
Jus a reminder. I'll be conducting a wrist corsage session for the rest of the brides who have not finish theirs. I'll be held at Aloevera's house as she has something to attend after the session. Please "enroll" if you are interested.
Date: 13th Oct
. I am feeling much better now. I have decided to take the other MU artist cuz' the original MU artist is very adamant about backing out, no point pleading or even talk to the MU artist myself. Anyway, after i had time to think thru', i think i don't want to let the original MU artist earn my money...
teatree, i haven't paid the MU artist anything cuz' MU is part of my BS package lor and i haven't had my trial yet so i really don't know about the works. Actually, Sam Ong is one of the MU artists my BS works with and in fact he was my first choice, but too bad he's booked on my wedding dates. But i do like Sam's works alot, as i have seen alot of them in magazines and i am very impressed with him
Sunshine here.. I can use sunshine here anymore cos xomeone else has registered it. So i'm now bride0712. I've not visited the forum for so long. I realized I'm really lagging behind, far behind. I've not done my food-tasting, I've not thought abt my guest list, I've not visited any printers or anyone else and I've not had my studio pictures taken yet.... PHEW! I guess I've alot of catching up to do!!! All of you are scaring me with your progress.
Teatree and cutiechar,
Can I see your pictures??? I've nothing to share at the moment coz I'm only doing mine at the end of the month. Would love to see your pics. My email : [email protected]
Hey all, I'm really lost now. I've not done anything yet and I really dun know where to start.. can anyone give me a clue what are the things that I need to do now???!!!
Oh no.., is it my early posting that make you even more kan chiong... my fault.. Cool down cool down, try to cool down, kan chiong will make us stress.... Must take care ok... then can be a beautiful bride.
I think posting may get lesser and lesser, everyone start to busy with wedding preparation and no time come in.
Heehee, Sunshine, dun panic... still got time lah! U can start by calling your hotel coordinator to arrange for food tasting, and to choose invitation cards. Both side parents met up already? If not, let the food-tasting be an opportunity for them to meet and discuss "guo da li" stuff, etc... the elders shd know wat to do, so u need not worry on this.
Next u need to sit down and do up your guest list, and then u need to estimate no. of invitation cards, after that u can visit the printing co to do printing lor!
And the little misc stuff like choosing music, choosing floral deco, choosing emcee etc... those can wait lah... so u feel less stress now?
Sorry ladies! I've created some confusion in the PS of Wen...My Greatest aplogises!
I'm paying a little more about $50,using off-white paper for the insert cos the normal ivory paper doesn't really go with the hotel card. I've decided on "normal" silver or grey printing cos the wording on the front-cover is in silver. I'm using silver thread to blend with the colour theme.
So total damage made is not more than $160.00 for 300 cards with string.
Dont stress K? If the makeup artist can walk out lidat, then its not professional. Did your MU artist bother to tok to u abt the re-schedule again? you are right, dont let her earn the money! n don plead with her as well!
Btw, hows the preparation for you gals so far? I haven print cards or anything yet..guest list not confirm oso.
I need some help here! I don have a emcee! how ar? where to find?I don wanna pay for a emcee in fact...haha
. In fact, i should be thankful to this other MU artist who is available on my wedding dates after that MU artist just walk out like that without caring if i can get another at such short notice.
No lor, i have never talk to that MU artist b4, my BS is the one who liaise on our behalf on all the scheduling of dates. I feel that misunderstandings may sometimes arise when we communicate thru' 3rd parties. I guess everything happens for a reason, it maybe a blessing under disguise
Have you tried asking Daniel, the free emcee here? If not, how about asking your cousins/ close frens or colleagues who dun have stage fright?
