hello ladies...
been buz preparing for the wedding. GDL and an chuang was today and spent the whole day distributing cakes and wedding cards to relatives. so many customs and lotz of things to prepare. and those little things actually can be quite ex also.
most have rsvp aldy so am cracking my brains on the seating which is very tedious. instially thot that we need at most 30 tables, now has increased to 45 tables.
will be treating my jie mei to dinner and will also distribute the tasks to them. not too sure if me very stressed or not, pimples are popping out...

my photos are not reay yet and wedding is next wed. photographer mentioned last time he will pass them to us abt 1week b4 wedding. afraid that there isnt enough time to develop photos for relatives. will bug him tmw....

hi dear, the whole thing sounds so fishy, but dont worry too much, the truth will be known.

hi taurus, the ang pows thing will depend on your parent, some do and some don't. if the wedding couple is paying for the banquet and sometimes the bride's parent will help the couple by returing the hong pows.

hi girlfriend,
wow, wonder how ur hubby can manage to carry the 52 boxes of cakes and pig trotters (assume itz aso 52 cans). my hubby was carrying the basket today and said that itz was very heavy with oranges, some pig trotter cans etc.
ur GDL stuff a bit different from mine even though we are hokkiens. so itz really impt for the parent and parent-in-law to communicate on the stuff that they require. mine had a misunderstaning on the custom today. we thot the guy side will bring the long feng candle and we will keep the feng candle. my hubby's side thot that we will buy long candle and exchange the feng candle with them. luckily there's a incense shop nearby my place and we went down to buy the feng candle. ai ya, traditions can be quite troublesome.


New Member
Hi c0co,

U r welcome. Good things must share mah. I also recommend my friend and my sister to karen. They all became her fans liao, haha. Glad to noe ur rash is much better.


c0co, u and me gotta eat roti and jam together. Shall we pool our resources together? Then like that can buy the roti and jam in bulk, cheaper. Sigh... overspent like siao too. See the bills I nearly *faint*


pray for me, I am very worried about my exam. Seem kinda distracted this year... can't seem to focus as well as last yr.

Also, my hubby flying away to rural Thailand on work for 3 weeks (no handphone reception).... sob sob.

Dear all who are interested...

This is the link for my first fit and trial makeup photos. My arms are so huge, got so much to do to tone them up before big day.



New Member
hello ladies
so long didnt come in liao.. busy ah.. sianz..

hi babysheep..
me look at ur pics already.. wah u look so slim now leh.. got any "mi fang" hehe
like ur gown especially the train.. hehe
ur arms is alrite..


New Member
Taurus, mine is according to the hokkien custom. All these are requested by my mom according to the traditions. We just followed whatever she wants, she is the BIGGEST mah... right?

For actual day, the usual ang baos for jiemeis, xiongdis & whoever is involved in the wedding. My mom asked for raw pig trotters with oranges & a ang bao(to thank my mom for bringing me up). This item is supposed to b brought to bride's house by mei puo. My mom also instructed us to give ang baos as a sign of respect to the zhang bei in the family i.e. our grandmas. I think for cantonese, they use suckling pig instead of pig trotters.

Mom also said need to buy 2 pairs of furry slippers (dunno for what).

U r staying in BP? I am currently staying there too, will b moving to SK aft my wedding. *sobs* *sobs* will miss my family

My family already said they would keep all the ang baos for their tables. According to tradition customs, the groom has to thank the family by giving the family tables i.e. pay for the tables & the bride's family keep the ang baos. You may wish to discuss this with your family.

My family knew that we paid for the banquet bt they wanted to keep all ang baos for the 12 tables. Mom promised to help us if we didnt break even. We haf to see how it goes aft the banquet.

Cawaii, err.. we explained to my parents that it's impossible for my hb to bring 52 boxes of cakes coz most probably most of them will melt in the car (we ordered french pastries). We requested the bakery to deliver most of the cakes & my hb will bring 5 boxes yi shi yi shi together with the pig trotters (luckily only 28 cans). I double check & confirm with my mom these r the items that my hb has to bring on GDL.


New Member
Girlfriend : Is the shop located at Jurong West St fifty something? 1 of my galfriend to me to bring my Mummy there to buy the barangs too. Not too sure of the exact location though.

Taurus : Mine is also a mix of traditionals and non-traditionals
We also have 5 items for the GDL
From what I know Bride's parents will return a bit of the ping jin to the grooms parents. Sounds like you are set for the day, just the nitty gritty that needs to be checked :

1) Finalising guest list and seating arrangement
2) Ang Bao box @ reception (if required)
3) Choose wedding music
4) Book lunch caterer
5) Finalising details with helpers (timing, no of cars)
6) Finalising details with photographer & MU artist
7) Pack barangs for AD (pens for signature book, photo album, etc)
8) Prepare ang baos for actual day
9) Financial arrangements
10) Look your best on 2 Jun

Cawaii : Hehe, sama-sama. We confirmed 30 tables and now gone up to 44 tables ;p Try to take things easy now that most prep for your wedding is done, enjoy your time with your jie-meis

Never mind lor, photos develop after wedding. Write a thank you on the photo and give it to relatives as a thank you to them for joining you in the celebration ?

Hi Babysheep,

Saw ur pics... U look sweet with makeup.. Ur arms not big lah..

My PS coming soon but now more pimples popping out ... dun know if the makup can conceal or not... Now a bit last min to think of miracles...


New Member
Hi Babysheep, Exciting, Coco,

At least you all get to get roti. I think I am going to fast for a month.. to save money and to salvage my figure. Too stress until I have been bingling on junk food. now I feel bad.. :p

Will keep us in prayers. For God's wisdom and peace. Trust God.

Dun worry about your hubby. He will be ok too.
Maybe take it as a good time to take a break and study. Me know sometimes hard to think about hubby but no choice. maybe can reward yourself and him after the exams and trip for a short hoilday.
then you won't feel so bad.

You really look very much different from your ROM photos. Karen keep telling me that you slim a lot. Keep up the good work. By the AD, you will look great, dun worry.
Where did you get the shoes? I never chance upon such cute shoes before. The flower is very unique.

You result so fast? Dun worry. should be ok. My result will only be out in August. Coz got to fly to UK... more fortunate than me. never go there before. 2 Sem very fast one. I got to wait once a year for the papers. more sian... but at least my wallet will only suffer once a year... but suffer a lot
