Btw, where is the location? Izit the same trade as urs now? Hmm.... wishing you good luck for the new job!

Hey, what kinda of dress is that? Can describe abit? Btw, you wearing white or other color for yr ROM?

Hi Jan,
Glad to hear that you are strong and fine now!!! Hee hee... can JOKE liao lor!!!

yan

New Member
errr... pressed the wrong button.. my whole list of reply went missing... now have to retype...

Jan, today is more for finalising details, clarifying doubts, but if he wanna collect deposit, we also no choice have to pay.. but see how much he want la... not possible to carry so much cash with us right, if he does not accepts credit cards or nets... hope he accepts cards, so at least can earn some points for the credit cards... me cheapo hor.. but no choice lei, these considered as substantial expenditure for me, and those points are be used to redeem some useful things...

Hi Hi!!

thanks gals!! yap, its that job which requires travelling, but maybe not once every mth... keeping my fingers crossed... hopefully, its once every two mths!! heehehehee.... no, jan... not at Shenton way... at AMK... seems difficult for me to get jobs in town or in the east... fated to travel half of Spore everyday!!
crazy.gif


wah!! yan, you got so many qns for david!! hahahaha... guess he'll hav a hard time from 9 to 11?? juz joking.... think he's used to it... most brides-to-be are very "gan-cheong" about their gowns mah, sure to ask lots of qns!! you wouldnt be his first customer to ask so much....
wink.gif


Hi yvonne, me took about 2 mths to find this job... hhmm... went to 4 companies for interviews and had 2nd interviews for 3 of them... but, usually they only hire one person for the position, so rather competitive... me sent out quite a lot of resumes though....

the co. is doing diff business, but me doing similar stuff... difficult to do career switch in such economy....

initially, me die die wanna wear white/off-white for my ROM.... now, thought of wearing gold colour gown!!
biggrin.gif
hahahahha..... fickle-minded hor... saw a pic of a gal wearing gold dress for her ROM and the hubby wearing a matching gold tie... very nice and stunning!! but not sure if it'll look very "kua-zhang"?!?!? the gown is sleeveless on one side and long sleeve on the other side... the long sleeve has slit, so it's like "dangling" downwards from the shoulders.... then, the top is a wrap-around type, with normal A-line or straight skirt loh... understand?? me cant explain properly....
blush.gif
the top looks a bit crumpled kind...

yan, its a great idea to hav a list of qns hor... think i need to write down too... me &amp; my bf got more and more qns to ask J&amp;M, esp. about the album and mag style price!!! think we'll forget by the time we go down in Sept!! hahahahaha......

And as for the photos, we have not decided which one to take.. presently, its between photospace and beetles.. we dropped Robin cos he is too expensive and it far exceeded our budget..

Today, the main intention to meet david at photospace studio is becos i wanna take another look at photospace photos... the last time i was there, i did not pay much attention on their photos and package... that time, my whole mind was to engage robin, so did not pay attention to photospace quality and style... i was more looking at david's gowns more than the photos per say...

Actually, photospace and beetles will also burst our budget... our initial budget is $4k for everything... photospace can match, but we want all the exposures back, so if i upgrade, it sure blow my budget one... and both photographers only offered 20 pages, sure not enuff for me one.. later add more photos = more $$ now, see what the two photographers can offer us for the rest of the budget left.. see how my bf bargain lor.. *sign* $$ not enuff...

Ever, i roughly get what u mean... nice....
by the way, the BS you going tom, do they have those enclosed changing room? i mean not those that use curtains.. if its those who solid doors, then see whether can u sneak in a digi camera, to take pix of the dress u are trying.. easiler to show J&amp; M ma, and to minimise miscommunications.. scarly they misunderstood what u meant, and MTM a totally different piece for you...

AMK... beri near my place lei... which industrial park will u be at?? can tell what company?? u travel to those countries, to help them do accounts?? dun they employ accounts staff over at the respective countries? me still dun understand how come finance need to travel one lei.. enlighted me??

ever, so it's that job! Good Luck on ur new Job! Hopefully u will still have time to log in during work! hehehe!
happy.gif


U're right Yan, think shld go down to discuss rather than on the phone to make sure everything... Ya, u shld tell urself what u need to focus on tonite, like the photos etc.. I didnt get to see any of his gowns, prob will ask abt it too... Hmm.. if both photographers costs the same after getting back all exposures, then i think Beetles will be a better choice.. Photospace is so-so lah... Beetles photos on website looks more fun..

ever, hmm.. think i can roughly imagine wat kind of dress u describing.. hehe.. it's nice! It's the soft flowy material rite? haha, seems like everytime u describe something i can imagine it!!
 

yan

New Member
jan, i din get to see the gowns as well. its all thru the albums at photospace studio... he say all those brides are his brides, and those gowns are all designed by him.. since at that time, no physical gowns to see, so have to see photos loh...

ever, its actually a toga top with "shui xiu" right?? u mentioned that the top is crumpled type, will people think that u never iron your top??

Hi binbin,

U renting accessories? How much u rent? I got lobang to rent accessories too from Lina, u interested?

ever

New Member
yan, agreed totally on the $$$ not enough part!! hahahahha.... guess we hav to sacrifice certain things loh.... think $4k sure not enough... for me, if i upgrade to mag style, it'll be $4.6k!! and not forgetting your package hav add'l gown and suits!! so, yr package really value-for-money... see what the two studios can offer you loh... since david ties up with Photospace, maybe they'll give a better discount?? if its only $100-$200 diff, then take the one with the nicer photos... afterall, we'll only see the photos at the end of the day...
happy.gif
cant imagine we need to spend approx. $5k for that one day!! and its only gowns, suits and photos!! Gosh!!

oh, i actually saw the gown from a mag, so will show J&amp;M the pic if i decided on that design... lazy to try gowns at J&amp;M, then discuss the designs with the designer.... sure make rush decisions.... and scared me too fickle-minded, will need to go down few times to confirm the design... my bf will kill me and the shop will die!! imagine seeing me so many times to MTM a free gown for me!! and its only for ROM!! hahahahhaa.....
biggrin.gif


yan, tell you more about the co. via email later... not convenient to post... (",)

guess we got lots of things to update one another next week!! flat, bridal, ROM, etc...

Hi jan, not sure if i'll hav time to log in next time during work, but i'll die die log in every nite to chat with you gals!!
happy.gif


yan, not toga lah... juz sleeveless... actually, toga also can... but, the pic i saw was sleeveless and not very very crumpled kind... juz crumpled at the shoulders area... hhhmm.... will tell you gals which mag and the BS name via email... maybe you gals can take a look at the mag and give me your opinion!! thanks!!

think its soft satin.... most shiny shiny kind... so, thought of gold colour!!!! heehehehhee....

yan/jan, a bit scary when there's no gowns to try?? then you gals really need to pretend to be customers and go to other shops to try diff designs... cos, gowns always look nice, but may not be flattering... personal experience!! me always choose nice gowns to try, but usually not nice... but, the designer will hav a better idea on what looks good!! (",)
 

jan

New Member
ever, i saw one dress in the mag from Dang, something like wat u described too, very soft flowy material, just below knee length... nice too!

Think it's only me who hasn't tried gowns yet.. I think Yan has gone down to many shops to try already rite.. hehe..

Hi yan, wah you tried gowns in so many shops!??!?! you always go with yr bf?? wah, yr bf very patient, think my bf will beg me to go without him if i visit so many shops!! hahahaha...

yan

Hi Yan,
Wow... u veri good hv so far visited 15 BS! So paiseh to say, I've not try any gown yet... ! So, any gowns you fancy besides the bare back n low neckline one?

Wat type of EG you hv in mind gals? I'm thinking of Gold EG... looks very glamours ya!!!

Hi Ever,
So when is yr last day of work? AMK is very near to my place too... hee hee! Hope you stl can come online to chat with us at yr new place!

How come you gals are able to visualise Ever's description whereas I CAN'T!!! Prob i dun noe much abt materials of clothings...etc. I think picture will be better than saying a thousand words rite...

Bet Jul must be bz checking any default at her new hse... kee kee! JUL, RELAX LA....!!!
 

jan

New Member
hello!!

Yan, ya lor, think all the BS knows him, coz he mentioned that he knows alot of ppl from the same industry! haha.. Ur bf really very nice, go bridal shopping and bargain for u... envy!! haha!!

Yvonne, me initially wanted Champagne gold EG too, but the mandarin ballroom decor is like those yellowish goldish colour too, so think better not loh..

Yan, yup ask David see what type of gowns suits u first.. see wat he says...
 

yvonne

New Member
Hi Jan,
Oh ya... must see the ballroom carpet n deco also hoh! Skali blend in with the theme than won't stands out liao... NOTED!!!

Hi Yan,
Thk not too advisable to go gown fitting with David since he himself is a designer n work in this trade (not good for his name rite if some1 recognise him tot he go copy design...etc) Probably you can cut out some pixs to show him...! Im sure with his experienced he can tell which gown is more suitable for yr built!

postpet2, you looking for photographers going overseas? Can try to ask Barnabas from Photospace... He's was organising a trip, but I cant remember the details... Very nice guy.

Ivory, I've a pink tube evening gown, long a-line one. You wanna try? If not I have got another one is red tube gown, straight cut one. I should have the photos if you want to have a look. Let me know

Hi Yvonne,

Nope, not much of an idea of what i wanna for EGs. Usually @ BS, they only let u try WGs and not EGs.. But for WG, initially wanted low or bare back design, for these two designs, gown cannot be bustier cos need some support for the front.. Subsequently, think think, on the actual day, I will be wearing a veil. the veil will cover all the back already.. so that defeats the purpose... think most likely settling for a bustier gown for WG...

maybe can toy with the bare back idea with the EG... but, if its too bare, i scared next time i dun dare to wear it out... *sign* see what david say la..

Gold is nice color.. but u may wanna double confirm the color theme of GCW.. scarly their wall, lighting effect is more towards yellowish, goldish, then the gold gown may just blend into the background..

Hi Jan,
I dun mind Silver (not our silver... haa haa), red, orange or gold. Design wise hvnt thk of it, thk i more QIN CAI kinda. As long as the dress looks GREAT on me, thk shdnt hv too much of a problem!

Hi Yan,
Yeah thk bare back idea can go into EG then! Usually EG will be more revealing... hee hee! I guess most lightly I will go for bustier or spagetti strip. Not sure whether bare shoulder with cat sleeves one suits me anot... hee hee?

Btw gals, veil norm till waist length rite? And norm plain white veil rite? I see some got design at the edge there! Hv u gals thk of wat kinda of hairstyle u like during PS and actual day???

hi,
serious, only talk to hotel 1-2 months before? But so many things to do by then right? Was hoping to do more things now over a longer period than rush around like crazy nearer the wedding day. I cannot get stressed... will get pimples!!

we haven't started on music although we have a few songs in mind. do we have to decide all the music for the whole night or will the hotel provide some too?
