proud.gif

antares

opps.. left out some messages
happy.gif


usually we'll perform at Victoria Theatre or Kallang Theatre, depending on availability and we have to pre-book 1 yr in advance at least.. so dat means most likely this year will not have again lor
happy.gif


u dance before? wat kind of dance? actually flexibility can be trained, but u must have determination, but its hard for us who are not professional dancers who practice 10 hrs everyday
happy.gif


hi forest

actually bcos its something i like to do so i won't find it a chore.. besides im very vain one, i like to perform on stage cos its like a world dat not everybody can go..

sometimes i do feel lazy to go for practice espaecially for our Sunday classes that start at 5pm.. but once u start moving, u feel much more better sweating it out.. helps to increase ur metabolism, cleanse ur system, re-energise after a week of hard work, improve ur body co-ordination, correct ur posture..

hi Ivory,
hahah..make your FH wear. Tell him, only once in a lifetime. hahah. So good..you so flexible..that's why can dance
happy.gif
my FH said, i'm the most inflexible girl he ever had. don't know whether i'm a girl a not.. hahah.I can't even open up my 2 feet wide apart. it's such a struggle for me. hahhaha.

The headdress, probably can ask your dance instructor to give some advise. I don't think i know anything how to mix & match headdress.
happy.gif


hi binbin,
wah..you & ivory having blind date? 1st time meeting each other?

Hi girls....
this thread moving super fast ah...
Cyn,
yeah agree with u that the female brides is not as good as the style mag hor...so u still going for your thailand trip...??? i know how u feel ah, i also have quite a few copies of the bridal magz...it's like u won't get to buy those past issues any more rite....

Lin,
so how's your research coming along, u shortlisted those places which u intend to have your wedding already, maybe instead of taking seat covers, u can try having those big ribbons...maybe it will be cheaper...

Binbin,
it's very sweet of yr FH ah...so counting down already, remember to take lots of nice pics to share with us ah...so will u be going for any nice pampering session before your rom...still planning to go ahead for your pre-honeymoon...actually i think both u and your FH very romantic one....always going to those romantic places one hor...like for V day u guys also celebrated at Regent rite...after yr rom then i will be next already...ehehe..
happy.gif


hi antares,
me also will be going for some of the bridal shows, i like looking at those lovely gowns...plus like what binbin say lor, can steal some ideas..ahaha..

hi all,

anyone going to the style wedding show on 27 Apr?
quite tempted to go to get ideas...
just another tot, for those who wish to get ideas, y don't u go to the various boutiques and try their gowns. I went to soooo many like le galleria, divine, lezen, tan yoong, silhoutte, etc.
my personal opinion is that tan yoong and silhoutte is one of the best in terms of workmanship and design. ;-) (though they are also quite X)

<FONT COLOR="aa00aa">hi forest,</FONT>
ya, there are quite a few bridal shows going on in April. I will be going for some too but
haven't decide which to go?
I only went for the Ted Wu last year. Actually I quite enjoy going to bridal show..heheee
:p
Maybe we see if we can spot some of the girls in this thread in those bridal shows..
happy.gif

I believe most of us will be attending at least 1 of the bridal show..
happy.gif


<FONT COLOR="aa00aa">hi Lin,</FONT>
If your parents can give in by reducing the no. of guests then it is good lor..
happy.gif

Frankly speaking, without a wedding banquet, one can save a lot of time and money. heee..
So your banquet will be a lunch?

<FONT COLOR="aa00aa">hi cyn,</FONT>
ya lor. Think the guys will think that we are boliao..:p
U booked your bridal studio already? I think I even more boliao cos' I had booked my bridal
studio already...:pP

<FONT COLOR="aa00aa">hi Ivory,</FONT>
I just browsed thru the old messages and realised that u have actually mentioned before
that the girl in tibetan costumes is you. I must have missed it out that's why asked u again.
:p I think the picture that you post is no longer there..
sad.gif

The one in pink in moroon is the one on the right, only showing side view? That girl very thin
wor..
happy.gif
Actually all the 3 girls in the pic are very slim..so good..
happy.gif

flexibility can be trained but not at my age right?...:pP You are in a CC dance group?
Ya, I was in the dance club when I was in Secondary school. I am very very inflexible wan..
now even worse..:pP
When the instructor try to train me to do the split, she made my 2 legs places apart and push
me against the wall...the pain is argggghhhh... so unbearable...I guess my determination is
not strong..:p I participated in several types of dances in sec school..
got Chinese dance, classical modern dance and pong pong dance. But my cheorographer seems to
like modern dance more, so we always had modern dance..
sad.gif
You know lor..I prefer chinese dance
And the make up is so so thick..
sad.gif


<FONT COLOR="aa00aa">hi Pebbles,</FONT>
so u will also be going to the bridal show.
happy.gif
Guess most of us who already got a bridal package
will still attend. heee...:p I also love to see those lovely gowns and those models' good figure..:p
Which show do u intend to go? See if can see you there..
happy.gif

hey, your ROM soon ah? when is it leh? Congrats too..
happy.gif


<FONT COLOR="aa00aa">hi binbin,</FONT>
I agree with Pebbles... U and your FH are very romantic..

hehehe... why ur FH so funny? wat has flexibility got to do with whether u a gal or not?

the headress not a prob cos the costumes usually will come complete with it for both guy n gal.. if not my bf can keep his head bare and i'll do something simple for myself lor
happy.gif

hi doreamon

sorry.. missed one o fur postings
happy.gif


no, im not making my own wedding gowns, just dat thinking of getting 1 extra ethnic costume cos i like Chinese cultural
happy.gif


this instructress is currently teaching in SIN and she's from China, Yunnan. this time she actually out of goodwill helping me to place order for the costumes back at her hometown
happy.gif


antares

got lah.. pix is stil there, just dat this 2 days too many messages it being archives above liao lah..

heehee.. not slim lah.. bcos im stretching out datz why look a bit slim, n dat time due to daily training tummy not dat flappy.. to tell the truth, my waistline abt 29-30inches.. so pai seh..
embarrassed.gif


how old r u? i started learning at the age of 16 when i joined poly, so considered the least experienced among all my frens
happy.gif


initial training for flexibility is torture
happy.gif
but we dun push too over our limits cos may cause injury as different ppl have different body anatomy, some really not suitable to train bcos of the way their hip/pelvic area is structured.. datz y all the dancers from Beijing Dance Academy are so good cos they went thru very stringent audition n selection
happy.gif


as for the makeup... its abt the same as the make up u do for photoshoot lah, so dat u can see ur features under the bright lightings

HI Forest,
Mine banquet is on weekday. Only managed to get free seat covers...the rest are about the same. When is ur banquet? weekday or weekend?

What did Martin offer you? Any extra perks? Do update me again...

hi pebbles,
I didn't know such chairs so expensive. I thought holding outside would be cheaper than hotel, now, i don't know how cheap that will be.
happy.gif

Yes, probably, if i'm not getting those chairs, might just decorate them with flowers or ribbons.

hi antares,
Wanted to have lunch instead. But FH didn't agree.He said must have dinner. He prefers dinner. Moreover, his side quite traditional thinking..he said chinese thing..must have dinner.

hi Ivory,
You mention about body anatomy..wah cheem! hmm, yah, my FH always tease me about my inflexibility. He has this mentality that girls should be more flexible than guys. He said i stiff lah.
happy.gif


hi forest,
Does eating bird's nest good for your skin? I didn't know that. Oh, i will be back end of the year.

hi blusher,
i heard free seat covers.... where did you hold your banquet?

your wedding in may 04 rite? so when are you having your 1st fitting? have you finalise your venue yet?

forest
no problem abt the 28 venues. wil try to scan a copy, if the txt is sharp enough, i can email to you. too many shows, so have to selective, if not pocket wil burn a big hole. hee.. dun worry, i'll make sure i enjoy myself &amp; have lots of bird nest. i'm looking forward.

you wif cali fitness? me too wif raffles pl. which branch do you usually go to? do you go alone? i'm always dragging my feet there =p

forest &amp; blusher
personally i feel tat it's not easy to neg wif MC &amp; they usually dun throw in many freebies. but i like their chocolate. so cute.

lin, you're most welcome. sorry for delaying. i'll see if i can scan it clearly so can email to you. i'm sure you're anxious to find more. actually not much write up on the places, jus the couples remarks &amp; pics.

Hi Pebbles and Forest

If all goes well and I can get everything settled smoothly, Amos and I should be back by the end of Aug this year. Really can't wait! The both of us have been whining and moaning about the remaining 5 months
happy.gif
You know lah, after 4 years, we've accumulated a looooooot of stuff. First 2 years we kept adding furniture/other home stuff cos we were pretty sure that we'd be staying even graudation. Now leh...!Headache over what to get rid, who to sell stuff too and how to ship the rest of our belongings back.

Forest,
No problem, I can try and find you information about Canada. But in the meantime, there's an article about Canada in this website. Well there was a couple who went there and they took pics of the places they've went. I'll e-mail you what I know first.

Pebbles,
Yeah think I should be able to make it for the Oct show. I'll definitely like to meet up with all of you
happy.gif

Well...haven't been doing any research for my wedding lately. There's nothing much I can do right now but wait till I get back.Intend to meet up with our hotel coordinator as soon as I can. Then the prep will begin after that. Right now all I can do is browse thru the bridal mags here and mark the pages of gowns that I like. HEhehe..

HI Lin,
My banquet is at Merchant Court.

HI Cyn,
I did get much perks too, but was happy with their service. Not forgetting their good comments in the MC thread. Hey, I love their chocolates too, so cute. I just pray hard that they don't change.
 

pebbles

New Member
Forest/Cyn,
hey me also with calf fittness, so how often do u girls go, alone or with your frens???

Forest,
how many tables do u have, maybe u can try JC, i spoke to her last weekend and she's a nice lady, manage to get a bit of things from her such as free seat covers...what u ask for will also depend on what u feel is most important to u ..
happy.gif

As for rom, yup, me next in line for this thread...
happy.gif
have done almost everything i guess, i will be holding my ceremony at my parents place, have gone to my bridal for my rom dress fitting so will be going down for my first fitting in mid apr, also gotten my shoes and done up 50% of my guest list, now im thinking if i should do up my own invitation card and wedding favours...hahaha...but not the artistic or creative kind lah...

Lin,
actually if u r having quite a big guestlist, maybe u should consider having it in the hotels, i guess it might be cheaper cos all the seat covers comes free or rather most hotels give the seat covers for free and the more tables u have the more bargining power u will have...can discuss it with yr FH..
happy.gif


Cyn,
i have not gone for my first fitting yet dun think will be that soon lah as for hotel venue ah, actually wanted to have it at pan pac but now decided to drop the idea, though i manage to bargain for lots of free peaks but after comparing the menu of pan pac to MC, pan pac price is seriously overpriced, they dun even serve prawns and they are serving cheap fish...so now i have shortlisted another two hotels...

Wendy,
Great so we will get to meet u two love birds in Oct then...i know what u mean, i was just like the two of u, during my first two years, i was so busy buying furniture to make myself comfortable come third year i had so much furniture and other home stuff, i have to ship lots of stuff back but i was quite lucky to sell away some of my big furniture to those fresh grads...so best of luck!!

Hi Cyn,

Read that u are going bangkok soon. Okie, found this in another thread, maybe u want to go and take a look.
happy.gif


At Phahurat Market(near Chinatown), it's something like our Arab St cum Concourse but at a larger scale..there are a lot of shops doing wedding favours and printing cards just like the one in Siam Sq..
Went to 2 shops there, prices are very much the same depending on which designs:
for 450 cards, abt 11B - 16B(without bargaining) includes printing of words(if I din hear wrongly), tying of gold strings
(if tie string ourselves, takes abt 2 days)
for 16B, it's the more complicated designs(very nice)
for siam sq, it's abt 15B per card but extra 500B for printing of words(takes abt 1 week)

wedding favours abt 13B-18B in Phahurat market and 25B in Siam Sq..order takes abt 1 week. They got very nice wedding favours and they do everything like wrapping individual items and tying them..quite cool..we wanted to get but as they take a week and we are coming back soon so no time..they also can post mail back but we prefer hand carry..
first 1kg - 500B
next 1kg - 100B

hi Ivory,
ya lor. that's why those beijing dancers are so good. Heard that to be able to get into the dance troupe is very very hard. Last time, my instructor told me that some even went to "pull" their spine(?) longer so as to be able to dance.. I dun know if it is true? or is it something like that? U start learning at 16! I think that's quite hard already right? Your determination must be real strong..
happy.gif
I am 26 now, which I think it is definitely too old to start dancing...
proud.gif
Then how old are u now leh? Intend to dance for how long?
Oh ya, when is your wedding har?

Hi WendyA&amp;W,
Your course so long ah? 4 yrs? Most of my friends who went oversea to further their studies came back within 2 years but they went Australia. Are you doing PhD cos' I understand that PhD course usually quite long? So u coming back soon..hope to see u then...
happy.gif
oh ya and can ask u to speak your hokkien to me ..heee

hi binbin,
2 more days before your big day... hehe..

happy.gif


hi blusher/cyn,

hi Lin,

yes.. eating birds nest is def good... supposedly 'zi run yang yan'.. though usually, u must eat for long term.. b4 u see the benefits lah... u know... stars like fann wong take it all the time... like everyday...

n becos bkk hve them at cheap prices (n good quality, if u can tell).. its the best time to eat them!
biggrin.gif


hi cyn,

wow.. if u can really scan it, then tt wld b sooo great!
biggrin.gif


u r rite abt the shows.. must select those tt i hve interests in.. otherwise.. i will jus b a poor girl in april! hee hee...

hi cyn/pebbles,

yes... im with cal fitness (it's a company scheme)... i usually go to the raffles plc one.. cos' its more convenient for me.. sometimes, i will go with my coll.. other times, i will jus go alone.. actually, i hve taken a 4mths break.. n today wil b the start of my gym regime again!!
proud.gif

hi pebbles,

abt the wedding invite n favors, as wat doreamon posted (i also saw it in tt other thread).. seems quite interesting to check it out leh... mayb u can think of something frm there?!?
happy.gif


hey binbin,

wah.. so nice... enjoy the pampering.. hvent had tt for a long time... *envy envy*

which sothys do u go to??? i've been reading at the recommendation for facials thread.. n seems sothys is quite good... wat's ur rating?? how abt prices??

Lin

huh? cheem ah... then how abt "bone structure"
happy.gif


antares

pull the "spine"? dun quite understand
happy.gif
i oni noe dat during their audition they will ask u to do a set of execises for them to see, look at your overall outlook (pretty or hansome or not in future), they will feel your bone structure to see if u are suitable to be a dancer cos not everyone can.. even if u are extremely flexible but ur bone structure is not right, u b rejected too
happy.gif


last time my dance troupe oso carry out such auditions but when its my turn to join, no more such rules cos its very hard to find ppl interested in Chinese Cultural Arts so when there still got ppl wan to join, they more than welcome.. even if the students got attitude oso close one eye, where got like China, can afford to be selective n strict training.. very sad..
sad.gif


oh yes.. u may b able to watch a performance this year.. last nite when i went for rehearsal, we received a request from the principal to put up a stage of Chinese Cultural dances in Aug/Sept, open to public.. but dun expect too much cos the students there learn dance less then a year.. so u know lah.. we are trying to ask our Yunnan instructress and Mongolian instructress to cheorograph 1-2 items for us too.. dunno they free or not..

I called up Allson Hotel just now and they told me that w.e.f July 2003, the hotel will be taking over by another management and they might or might not be holding wedding banquets anymore so have to reconsider the venue for banquet again. Anyone have any suggestions? Budget SGD560.00-SGD570.00 NETT per table for 22 tables on Saturdays

hi binbin,
where is the sothys facial place? is it near raffles place? I used to use the facial wash from sothys. But i bought that from my aunt.

hi pebbles,
do hotels provide function room also?

hi forest,
i saw this bird's nest bottle selling here. such a small bottle cost $6. And it sells in 6 packs. So, total cost around $48. Dont' know whether want to try or not...

Hi Lin,

Hi,

I'm new here, just got to know this website thru a friend.
I've also booked MC for dinner &amp; gown @ B Zone.
So far B Zone no prob. But a friend went to
a wedding dinner @ MC &amp; commented that they employ
foreign workers as their waiters !!!

Any comments? Any news of that sort.
Cos I specifically asked Dom (our ex-coordinator, now resigned) if they're using perm staff &amp; not part-timers and was given positive reply.

cheers, very soon you'll be back in sin. looking forward meeting the golden couple. =)

Forest &amp; Pebbles
wow so coincidence man, we frequent the same club. perhaps we shd meet up one day. i'll try to go twice a week. have been gog alone for the past few mths cos i took up the personal training. so sad ending soon, not extra $$ to sign up more =(

pebbles, forest &amp; blusher
MC is value for $$. nice ambience, good food, only ballroom, accessible (when MRT is ready) and of cos reasonable price. MC is one of my shortlisted hotel but i dun like the coordinator. unfriendly &amp; stuck up, thinking tat MC is popular, so doesnt really care abt you signing up anot. as for the chocolate, think there's 2 pcs - dark &amp; milk, 1 girl &amp; 1 boy. really cute, you wont wan to eat.

forest, i'm with GCW. my wedding in jan 04.

binbin
you really know how to enjoy life huh... *envy* must be feeling very excited.. getting closer to the big day. so which resort did you book? how much?

doremon
thx for you info. dino tat they have such stuff in bangkok. really cheap huh.. btw, which thread huh? i'll be doing my own invites (with compliments lah) so it's a gd chance to steal ideas again. haha.. if i find something nice &amp; cheap, i dun mind getting there. but have to wait for a week?! i'm only there for 5 days leh.

pebbles
thx for your concern. it's a holiday trip.. so far the virus haven spread there... hopefully not.. if i really tat "sway" to kana, bo bian lor. even i stay in sin, there's chances to kana too =)

lin
bird's nest is really good for complexion. but too siong to have it daily. not sure if those in oz good, depend on where they come from?

hi pebbles,
it's getting cooler these few days. Now, really feels like autumn. It's better. Life as usuallah, busy, but i'm always in front of the computer, so always multi-tasking. hehe...
happy.gif
And gosh, lazy to do laundry. Always do laundry only until the last piece of clothes.

I don't know if the hotels will charge extra for the function room. See how it goes... but luckily, i went to check out the price of chairs...sigh..didn't know so ex.

hi cyn,
hmm..ok. probably i'll eat it once in a while especially when nearer to my wedding date. I think at the moment now, i just watch my diet. Now, already cutting down on fried food.

Hi all!!

Sweetgal,
There's this show at Amara hotel. The ad is always flashing at the top of this page. EHhehe..looks nice. Maybe you can go and have a look. The table setting looks soooooooo nice.

Antares,
Phd?! Wow...I wish I have the brain and motivation for that. Haahah..no I'm just finishing off my bachelor degree. Won't even think about doing masters unless I have loads of money. Yeah, some ppl only had to spend a year in Aust cos they went to Poly or something. I had to start from year 1.

Ivory,
How do they check bone structure? Amazing...didn't know they do that before selecting. I guess you must have it in you literally (the right bone structure) to be a top notch dancer.

Lin,
Hhehehe...I'm the same too. Hate doing laundry. Have to lug the clothes all the way to the laundry room, have to pay for the machines and still have to fight for them. Plus whenever its laundry time, I feel like I have to waste a few hours sitting at home to wait for it. Otherwise if it's a crowded day, ppl just take your laundry out.

Cyn,
I wonder if I should torture myself and cross out each day on the calender till Aug. HAhahah...did that once before for 10 months at work. Waiting for the day till I got to quit.

Hi Elf..! Welcome..!
Are getting a made to measure gown or what? Cos if you are, don't have to worry. You'll be able to have a gown made just for you. When you are petite, it's not difficult to find the right style.

Pebbles,
You are really funny. I get those stupid remarks about my size alllll the time too lah. Some ppl just have no consideration. They just think too highly of themselves. Whats more important is the overall body must be proportionate. Size doesn't matter.
happy.gif
I used to be very conscious about my frame and height, now I think it's really quite a blessing. So I can't wear sleeveless tops or too body-hugging outfits lor..nevermind. I'll find something else!

Hmmm...did I forget to answer anyone's question??

thanks for your compliments, im just dancing for interest, chinese cultural arts can't survive in SIN lah
happy.gif
fortunately im not living in China else i can't dance too
happy.gif
dun have the perfect bone structure
happy.gif


i oso dunno how they check the bone structure, but i guess its after years of experience, all the instructors there will be able to pinpoint whether the children are suitable to be dancers or not lor

Hi Cyn,
hey woman u got PT ah, who's yr trainer??? so when do u normally go for your PT ah, maybe i might have seen u before...maybe i always see u but dun know it's u hahah...
happy.gif
so how long have u gone for PT,heard that it's really very effective, did u manage to lose alot of weight??? but are u big size in the first place?
oh regarding yr bkk trip, yeah i know the weekend mkt sells lots of nice wedding favours but limited choices lor do check out the one Doremon recommend and let us know ah..
happy.gif
but be careful hor..
happy.gif
As for MC ah, so far the co-ordin that i dealt with is very nice but have not met up with GCW yet so can't make my decision...

Hi Wendy,
hahah...u also very funny what, i guess we are all the same, there's always a limit to how much shit a person can take for my case is, a bit too much off my limit already so cannot stand it anymore, main concern i have is my health, alot of fat pple tend to fall sick easily...but i guess for now the motivation to fit into a nice gown is the main purpose to lose weight lah..ahahah..
happy.gif


Hi elf,
never too early to prepare for yr wedding but it's a good idea to start looking out for the gown design which u like, u taking MTM or OTR..
happy.gif
hey do u want to mail me yr details then i will add on to our mailing list..
happy.gif
my email address is [email protected]

Hi sweetgal,
Amara hotel is quite ex for weekend cos they just renovated their ballroom so u might want to look at other hotels which Cyn had suggested to u..
happy.gif


Hi Ivory,
ahah...oh sorry remember wrong date..
happy.gif


Hi Lin,
it's good that the weather is getting cooler so soon will be winter, i love winter but tend to eat more during winter..ehehe..
happy.gif
dun worry so much i know the hotels charges around the same price for function rooms so shouldn't be that bad..
happy.gif
will be looking forward for your return too..
happy.gif


Hi watchgalore,
welcome to our 04 thread, looks like the number of BZ brides are increasing..
happy.gif
who's yr co-ordinater for BZ and when is your big day..? as for MC waiters, i guess it's ok for them to use foreign workers cos as long as they are qualify, there shouldn't be much of a problem cos they also have problem with hiring rite, with the number of weddings they hold plus with one to one serving, i guess it's really quite difficult for them to just hire part time staff...oh u want to send my your particulars in the above mentioned address so i can add u to the mailing list

<FONT COLOR="aa00aa">hi Ivory,</FONT>
actually I also dun know if it is spine or not? I can't remember exactly. What I know is just that it is definitely not that simple to get into dance troupe lor. Ya, I think that's quite true, nowadays not many people interested in chinese cultural arts. I remember that time when some people know that I am in chinese orchestra, then they actually said "yeeee"..so sad..
sad.gif
Really?!There will be a performance in Aug/Sep! If the place and time is finalised,let me know ok?..
happy.gif
How abt the ticket? Maybe u can drop me an email to let me know just in case I miss out the message here cos' this thread is really moving very fast..
happy.gif
Will u be in the performance too?
happy.gif

heee..so we are of the same age..
happy.gif
So how's your prepartion for ROM? Settled your ROM dress? Going for outdoor solemnisation?

<FONT COLOR="aa00aa">hi sweetgal82,</FONT>
u might want to consider River View Hotel. I think it might fit your budget..
happy.gif
As for the ballroom, I do not have any idea cos' never been to any wedding there before.

<FONT COLOR="aa00aa">hi elf,</FONT>
welcome welcome..
happy.gif


<FONT COLOR="aa00aa">hi cyn,</FONT>
I also heard such thing abt MC also. Got people told me that nowadays MC's business is so good and it becomes that there is no room for negotiation...dun know if this is true. GCW is a nice place... tot of holding the banquet there but it is above my budget..:p

<FONT COLOR="aa00aa">hi Pebbles,</FONT>
some people always like that one, openly insulted people's size...
sad.gif
i know that kind of feeling... remember I used to get those remarks such as "ni3 pang4 le4..zhen1 de4"...(You become fatter, really..) , hey your face look like hamburger..hey, why your face so fat...ni3 fei2 le... I was so sad that time but later immune liao..hahaa..:pP But Why can't they spare a thoughts for other..
sad.gif
But u really get motivated by this ah?..good good.. for me I just one ear in and one ear out..:pP
bochao..:p

<FONT COLOR="aa00aa">hi WendyA&amp;W,</FONT>
so those from poly got exempted for 1 or 2 year like that lah?...true lah, doing PhD seems very cheem like that.. got friends tell me dun take PhD, otherwise will get Permanent Head Damage(PhD)..:p

<FONT COLOR="aa00aa">hi girls,</FONT>
ask u all har.. what are the perks that you are asked for? The banquet coordinator will ask u what perk u want or is it that u just suggested to them? I am very blur with this..:p

Hi Pebbles,

my coord - BZ is Linda - was told she's the designer.

for MC - can't remember the name, but it's a lady, heard new to the hotel.

mine is actually this sept, not 04 :p
but came here cos it's very happening &amp; most have
similar BZ &amp; MC. pls don't mind, ladies.


Hi antares,
guess, we must tell them wat we want, hotel won't "song4 shang4 men2" (offer you anything extra volunatarily) Tell them everything you want then they'll tell you wat they can't give.

Antares,
Yours friends are really funny. Never heard of Permanent Head Damage before...will tell my friends. HEehehe. Yah, for Phd, you have to do a lot of reasearch for your thesis. I can never make it man. I have a friend here who is finishin up his Phd and he is BALD! HAhahah...he's only 30 I think...starting balding years ago. Probably killed a lot of brain cells or something. HEhehe

I'm not sure if coordinators usually ask you what things you want to substitute. But my mom and sis-in-law told me that we must ask for things that we really want...So before our coordinator asked us, we've already sent her a list of requests like another night's stay in the suite, types of wedding favour etc. I actually don't really know what else I want. Maybe I'll know what to ask for after I see the place...then I'll probably ask if I can change the flower of whatever if I don't like something.

Pebbles,
Oh so Amara just renovated their ballroom huh? Interesting. Do they have a website? Maybe I can go and look see look see. I like to look at pictures of ballrooms.
