i got my rose petals from the florist in International Plaza (tanjong pagar). it is very cheap,and the service is good. they sell in big packets of $3, mixed rose petals. if you want to choose colours, then u pay for the roses and they tear the petals off for u.... i dun rem exactly how much are the roses. if i am not wrong, they do have 3 for $1 kind, but are those that are very ripe and bloomed. for the fresh ones...which is what i got...i forgot the price liao...u can call and check, or go and visit them if u work near there?? i did think of buying from poppy (where i got my bouquet), as they have beautiful petals, but IP for rose petals cheaper....
booked ur venue yet? hope u will enjoy usself here with the march brides to be!
jas......but my designer specifically told me not to rebond my hair before wedding leh. coz she said rebonded hair (esp newly rebonded one) not easy to style....why not check with ur bridal? and u have just highlighted huh? heheh i also tot of highlighting leh...hhehee...but no money leh. . anyway, since u highlighted oredi, think rebonding will be wasted right? read from this rebonding thread that if highlight first then rebond, the rebonding will lighten the colour or something like that...
sunflower and jas...hehhee...me also eager to lose the extra fats arnd the arms and such. just renewed my amore package.
today went to kickboxing class....beri fun..
yes, climbing stairs can burn kilos. u can also try to walk home more from the mrt or interchange instead of taking fiddle service. or get down one mrt station earlier when going to work....and walk there..... or try to walk around after lunch instead of sitting down immediately...
Orange: Hello. Welcome to the thread!!!! When's ur date?
Jas: I oso have the dilema whether to rebond my hair now. Had it last done last year's Jan, but now a bit unmanageable liao... Feel like doing but scare it'll all be spoilt after the PS... Sigh.. zhen fan ah..
Sunflower: If I'm not wrong, u can fixed ur PS date as well as ur photographer & make-up artist when u go for ur 1st fitting on 23/8. From what i know, some gals from other thread even book these issues right after they signed up the package... Maybe u can ask ur bridal shop.. Sorry ah... me blur blur liao, is ur bridal boutique Santiago???
Me can't sleep so log on to chk this forum, glad to see it becomes 'alive' again. Ya, it was quiet for a while... pai seh, seems like only me & CC2 discussing abt our bridal shop.
Regarding rebonding of hair, I oso heard tt newly rebonding hair is difficult to style. And oso afraid tt the rebonding effect won't be lasting after the hairstylist lay their hands to style our hair for the PS & actual day.... Actually, I oso rebonded my hair earlier this year & am considering whether to do it again end of this yr. Hmm, think better chk out with the bridal hairstylist for some advice.
Well, I guess all, if not most of us r trying very hard to lose some weight & to tone up those muscles. Running is actually a very good form of exercise to lose those extra kilos, provided you hv the discipline, stamina & determination to really run some kms....
Sunflower, me oso like u, wanna keep fit yet just too lazy to get out of the house to sweat it out, hee hee. & I oso dun hv $$ to sign up with fitness centre...
Fyi, I try to 'force' myself to do some 'cross-training' at home. E.g. Stretching, sit-ups, carry weights etc. Sometimes I'll do some skipping oso.
silver, guess my bf is quite ok about me travelling occassionally, but not once a mth!! anyway, will give it a serious thought if they ask me to go for second interview....
gals, me bought the wedding bands yesterday!! yipppeeee!!!! we still ended up buying the pair from Soo Kee.... think i described to you gals before.... its with 2 tiny diamonds, and have a small gap in between the ring.... wanted to customise it to platinum, but my bf decided otherwise.... so, we got them to customise one pair using white gold and will be collecting them in a mth!! Saw their diamond rings where you'll also get a pendant free, but guess its not that cheap compared to my bf's lobang!! and not necessary to have a diamond pendant also.... so, me still waiting for my diamond ring!!!
Jul, didnt expect u to log in on Sat!! hehe..
Maybe there's both risks in doing OTR and MTM, but with MTM perhaps higher chance of doing something u like.. whereas for OTR, well, what if u cant find any one u like in Jan...
ever, good for u , got ur wedding band settled!! hehe.. Good luck in ur long awaited diamond ring eh!
And how are preparation for all of you? Noticed there's quite a string about skincare and related topics. Will take time to browse later... Hehe, gotta oso embark on scrubbing the "dirts and marks" liao... hehe...
Since got so many advices against rebonding, then I tink I might consider the perm suggested by my stylist. She showed me a Jap hairstyle magazine and there's 1 perm which she highly recommends for me. I told her my concerns abt no time to maintain the style in the morning. She said tat perm is low maintanence! It doesnt' look too "permed". Perhaps should consider it, after having years of straight hair.
Tink for rebonding, the solution would remain inside your hair. So no matter how you bun your hair, when you wash it, it'll be back to straight after washing. Tat's wat happens to my hair.
How is kickboxing? California fitness also has kickboxing classes. But I quite hesitant to join whenever im there!
Binbin: Wow, u r taking kickboxing ah? Very strenous rite? Used to have aerobics classes, the instructor incorporated a 15min session of kickboxing in between, found it very 'xiong', cannot tahan ah...
What I do to work out is to play badminton with my FH every week lor... Hoprfully it'll help...
I just rebonded my hair over the weekend. Both my PS and actual day makeup artist told me not to rebond but I still went ahead. Cannot stand all the curls here and there... but I suppose it shld be okie lar, come March next year all the hair will grow out again
My hairstylist told me that shld rebond 1st then after abt 1-2 mths then highlight.
Pai seh pai seh, me and Dolphin keep on talking abt our bridal shop.
hi hi jas....kickboxing is fun! esp with certain instructors....yes i understand ur hesitation about CF. I think it's coz there are many guys there....and the instructor may not know how to balance betw the guys's needs and the ladie's needs and stamina. and their classes dun need registration one...that means any number of ppl can go in, will be so packed. that's why i din sign up even though the CF guy called me up and offered me 1.5 yrs more.... hehehhee...i love AMORE!
well....just share with u something. I went to Toni & Guy last month to have a haircut. i thought of doing perming...either the jap or the ceramic perm, or even normal perm. my stylist asked me some questions and learn that i am a low maintenance person. she then invited the hair technican over to give me some consultation on whether i am suitable for perming. we were talking abt highlighting hair for a while. then ONCE the technician heard that i am low maintenance, he immediately advised against perming. coz he said any kinda perming requires me to maintain it or else it will not look as nice...... not sure....but perhaps u can consider again....i was thinking that toni & guy must be sincere and truthful in this advice. I mean, who don't want to earn more money?
for me, i have natural curl.....din want to rebond coz i hate to have perpertually straight hair...looks boring after a while. but recently felt it beri beri ley chey to maintain, so decided to do rebonding...but WILL wait until after customary....hehhehhee....
Hi yvonne!! ours was $754 for a pair after discount.... which design is yours?? and how much??
Congrats!! chosen yr ROM dress liao... what's the design like?? bustier or spaghetti straps??
is the instructor a young guy?? think he teaches the 11am class at Orchard Cine too!! so, you going for next sat KB again?? or you wanna go for sun's lesson with me?? me cant make it on sat....
I saw a gal carrying a booklet on Sengkang flats on sat!!!! thought they had WIS for Sengkang flats..... but i think she's travelling towards HDB Hub.... maybe you can go ask if there's any more flats in Sengkang area??
that's good for u too, looks like a fruitful weekend for u gals huh... got some stuff settled!!
Dun worry lah, when u get used to exercising, then it shld be fine soon!
Yup, Jul, gotta settle on the design first.. yesterday was cracking my brain on the designs too!! Aiya.. still undecided!! Was thinking of the colour for EG too.. Wat are the colours u gals have in mind?
hey Yan, how was ur lucky draw and ur visit to David?
Hi Jul!! oh, they didnt have our sizes at that branch and we wanted a new pair.... so, requested for them a customise a pair for us instead of checking for stocks at other outlets.... basically, the same design cos we decided not to change to platinum or partial yellow gold.....
think SK still got flats, but think it's mainly Exec and 5 rms in areas in Fernville, buangkok, and actually there are some anchorville and compassville side not taken up i think, coz i saw some the whole row of flats seems to be empty, dunno why the hdb doesnt want to open it for sale.. strange... But those are mainly exec apt..
Ur rings are quite cheap, w/ diamonds too! How much was the discount? Did they charge you more for customising a new pair? I think most prob we'll be getting the rose gold ones from Fairy's Inc, coz fiance liked them so much. But then will be something simple coz he can't stand elaborate patterns
U started thinking abt designs for gowns already? *envy* I hope to get the reno contractor sourcing thing over with by mid Aug, so that I can start the gown & ring things. Can't wait!
I think a lot of flats leftover for WIS are 5 rooms. U might have to 'mentally prepare' to get 5 room first. Then when u get a 4 room, u'll be super happy!
I was at Fernville (Jul, yr place) yday nite... alot of empty units but when we look at the teletext/hdb website for Sengkang, only few units (low floor) yet is all taken up? I think HDB is holding on for stock take and probably will launch it again togther with Punggol on the next WIS???
no add'l charge, unless we want to change to partial yellow gold or platinum.... cos they dont hav our sizes mah.... so, they'll customise for us... saw some rose gold rings at Lee Hwa (you can try Aspial - bigger range) under the FJ range.... think you can go see and copy their designs.... but dont buy there!! cos its not very cheap.... maybe custom-make at Fairy inc cheaper than buying there!! they sell a pair for $2k+!!!
Jan, you think of designs and colours first, then proceed to look for bridal shops?!?!? heehehehee.... funny!!
Yeah, we also tell ourselves to prepare for the WORST and don put too HIGH HOPE on punggol/Sengkang areas cos all the leftover units limited choices, low floor, queueing of the flats, no 4 rooms or not so good location...etc. Hopefully, we dun make RUSH decision either and find a place which both of us feel comfortable enuf.
Dun be disheartened. HDB always likes to spring last minute surprises. But it's gd to try to get flat thru WIS. Coz last yr, future FIL was worried that HDB will not be building any more new flats bcoz of the huge surplus. So he kept urging us to get one quickly. Then really, till now, no new flats built! Just keep a look out k?
Did I mention that I'm getting my keys in 3 weeks?
hi doremon, dun mention. i forgot what is the name, so i called up citysearch and ask for all the florists....hehehe called all 4 up directly. coz i know i will recognise the boss's name. OKie, the florist is called Future Florist, on the ground floor. u enter through the door nearest to the MRT exit. it's the 1st florist u come to. Look for CHew, who is the boss. I bought from him, good service. the number is 65388894. better to go early, coz sometimes u may need to order the roses in advance. Good luck! keep me updated yar..
Hi Jul!! yap, $2k++ is really exp, but they using rose gold and platinum.... mine is white gold, so really make a diff to the price range... hahahaha... true!! me cant make myself spend $2k++ on a pair of wedding bands!!
Hi yvonne, oh... never mind then.... wait for the Punggol WIS loh.... think this area is the best for you two, rite?? near parents and future PILs.... actually, Sembawang's flats are quite nice... and exterior looks very classy loh.... but guess the location not really suitable for us... heehehehehehee..... hhhmmm... i thought got some hope about the Sengkang flats when i saw the gal carrying the booklet... maybe she didnt mind the low floors loh...
Jul!!! congrats!!!! very excited, rite?? then you better get yourself busy these days and source for the contractor!!! my fren took one-two mths to confirm one ID firm!!! hahahaha.... think you need to go Expo quite often liao.... visit all the reno fairs.... so fun!!!
Jul, u must be very happy and excited eh!! hehe.. i think u must really tell the ID wat u want and wat u dont, if not they'll usually design something very fanciful and with lots of other things to add on.. design wise, of coz will prob be nicer.. Guess u might need to forego some very nice designs if u want it cheaper...
Why dun u think of designing it urself? Instead of leaving the designs entirely to them, they'll sure ask u to do lots of stuff one usually...
Yup, Yvonne, dun have too high hopes first, otherwise greater disappointment!
ever, yup thinking of designs first so that can show it to designer next time mah.. hehe.. But currently shorlist (for the 100th times i'm saying this!) silverlining, dang and David Lim.. But waiting to hear from Yan abt David... For silverlining, quite scared that he's too busy to give a personalised service leh...

jan, since you prefer organza gowns, i think you shld go for silverlining... dont worry about him being too busy... we juz need to be more on the ball loh!!! heeehhehehehehee.... Dang's OTR gowns are usually duchess satin, so i think she's better with duchess satin...
yup, ever, ya, maybe i shldn't worry too much first... Probably i shld worry abt which to choose first!! haha..
Btw, showed my hubby to some of the photograhers website ie Robin, O studio, The Edge, Photospace..hehe.. currently think Robin and the edge seems to be quite good.. Would say O studio pics are nice, very artistic/journalistic kind, but we were thinking if make our PS so artistic then the little details and stuff can't be seen, no point, tho it'll be nice..haha..
Yvonne, actually can write letter to hdb, give them some reasons why u wanna delay, usually can work one! haha... me delayed for half a yr! Guess Jul has to delay for 1 year...
