can.. provided my hubby got tell me wat he see on the papers lor... cos i dun read newspapers one


hee hee, i'm no expert in this but my mom just chose a date for us to "An Chuang" when our furniture was being shifted in, and that's it. she didn't say if it should be done 6 days before the AD, or else we'll be sleeping on the floor now
but hor... i think u'd better check with both sets of parents first, cos, better do something that they think is right

my place is at bt batok as well, we're the new development near bt gombak MRT, what about ur SIL's place? keeping my fingers crossed she's not staying at the same place as us.....


New Member
Hey girlfriend, isnt emicakes very expensive? How much does a box cost?? wat type of cake you ordering from them? Isnt it a must for our hubby to send the cakes over personally?

Bao bao, you very abit kiasu... dec 24 and you are getting pple to rsvp already.... but good also at least you have a rough estimate


New Member
i think deposit as in downpayment is deductible from u and ur hubby CPF,at least 20% or the maximum amt that they can deduct from ur CPF acc.As for the 2k deposit,it will be reimbursed back to u.
As for renovation,depends on the materials that u are using.Very difficult to gauge.At least stand-by 20k.Aircon can get ard 2k to 3k.
I just know need alot of cash untill bank dry up....So u do things one step at a time,not so siong.


New Member
me too, have to nag at my hubby to get the cards done. he didnt do anything over the weekend and he's playing lan games w frds now... so mad!

so sweet of you to sponsor the dress. me no budget, will only give my jiemeis a treat b4 the wedding. will ask hubby to settle on his bros.
staying with in laws so only renovating my room. everything done except getting a sofa. been looking ard but cant seem to find one to fit in the room.

supposed to met her tis sat but called her juz now, she said she didnt take down my appt and want me to mit next week instead. still got time so i dun mind.


New Member
hi Eunice,
Well some roles u can consider
Brides maids
1. one to follow the bride and help her handle her gown- also to carry all bridal dresses for the day and first aid kit (both day and night)
2. One to help carry the jewelleries - also help u to change. This person should also make sure the bride gets her drink with straw etc
3. Evening - receptionist (one to take charge of the gifts and ang pows) and the rest to register the guests

Best men
1. Follow and help hubby - usually help to also drive the ah yee's car
2. For dinner - appoint 1 of the guys to be the person to be the controller of wine/beer/liquour for the night.
3. MC for the night?

That is all i can think of at the moment .....

Baobao..some things can give n take, some things cannot.

I insist that he writes his own cards! heh heh!

Today I nag at him again abt the cards.. he says writing the cards is an easy task and it takes him a day to do it.. I shall wait &amp; c.

My HB is also bz at work and I source out BS, hotel, AD photographer, videographer etc etc.. it can b very tiring at times.

Baobao, it's good to plan early! Good luck to you! For the rest of us, we will be ending our race soon..

fantasy, we are planning to get the fortune rolls from Emicakes, a box consists of 8 pcs of mini swiss rolls and costs $8.80 per box. My budget is about $10 per box. Mom wants individual wrapped cakes initially but we manage to convince her to take the swiss rolls instead.

I have contacted emicakes and the sales person also recommended the fortune rolls. You may wish to check out emicakes website for more details.

Btw, starr cellars send a wine list to me. I haf contacted them for wine tasting. Most prob will drop by in the nxt free days to cfm our wine too.

My HB proposed to put a bttle of more exp wine each at his boss &amp; my boss table coz they have special palate... i wonder if it will be sensitive to o/r guest.


New Member
under certain cicrumstances if the buyer CPF account is insufficient to pay for the downpayment,the balance have to be topup by cash.Otherwise,the CPF will advise u to downgrade ur flat.
Try not to get any renovation loan from the bank,the interest rate is so high,after renovating the hse,still have to save money and pay to the bank.
Dun know if u understand what i mean?


New Member
i also dun mind having one BB soon.The best is if i can have one now.
What is ur job position?So free one!U company needs to employ ppl or not?I want to work there also!!!


New Member
Hi all,

we finally talked to the contractor. He has actually misunderstood what we want... so therefore the quotes that he recently gave us are wrong lor...

so will be going ahead with him... have selected the laminates today.. hee hee..

Gone for my first fitting but have not uploaded the pixs up yet... hee hee


New Member
hi grace,

i oso dun mind having a bb soon. bt due to budget..hai..my mum say these 2 years is the right age if nt too long den large age gap with the kids..haha


New Member
hi sashamama,

i asked my hubby. he said the things tt u stated r jz rite..no need 2 ask any others..

as for the house, i oso bought a flat in punggol, reno abt 2 finish..u need to plan carefully abt the $$ 1st cz i'm nw having prob..reno exceed $2-3k. as i'm low income, cn't help much in the bills den my hubby nag n nag @ me..hai..

jz like wat hayashi mentioned, u need to have sufficent $$ in ur cpf, or combine cpf. if nt den hv 2 top up..have u bought a flat yet? if yes, u shld consult a ID 1st 2 get their quotations n den decide wigh is the best for u..if no, u cn plan n save for the hse n reno 1st.

for a basic std apartment, ard $20k onwards cz jz like wat u said flooring n etc..n oso depends on wat materials u choose. when u go dwn to the ID, they'll show u wat range n products they have n price range..nw i tink the expo gt exhibtion, u cn take a look n get some brouches n ask questions frm any ID companies there which u like..or u go any of ur frds hse n c c n get the ID comapany frm them..

i'm sorry if i left any any thing nt answered. sleepy nw..jz ate cough mixture..
fill me in if i left out anything!! thanks!! n sorry!!
