I think for hoods and hobs, ariston is quite a good brand. My house hoods and hob was provided by my contractor. It's ariston. Technogas is good as well.
I think Technogas is more value for money. Ariston is quite pricey. But if u are buying an oven, Ariston is very good.
Welcome welcome. Which part of Raffles Plc u working. I am working there too!! We can meet up again.
Gongxi gongxi. Got buy 4D or not? Finally got the "rare" opportunity to rest on a Saturday. Phew.. so shiok right? Yesterday I went for a wedding dinner in Malaysia, now so shack I feel like collapsing.
My hubby coming back tonight. To celebrate his homecoming, I decorated the house till it looks like a spa. Complete with essential oils and rose petals formed into a heart shape on the cotton satin bedsheet. Wonder if he will be touched.... hehe.
Anyway, tomorrow is monday. Enjoy urself while the weekend lasts.
Thanx for your info ..
We've been to shops selling Ariston and Technogas ...
Ariston is definitely more pricey ..
But looks nicer lah ..
Technogas is value-for-money but still prefer Ariston one ..
I juz saw ur pics and all I can say is that you r really good at making these crafts ..
Where did u purchase the materials huh ??
I'm very interested ..
Just heard an old wives' tale. For those trying for a healthy and obedient bb, attempt at hitting BINGO on a stormy and thunderous night is a no-no. A peaceful sleep is recommended on nights like those.
Yep the Amore sessions do help me to lose weight, plus whenever after workout, I will just makan an appple & pear then zz liao ... coz by then will be too late to eat dinner
Make up is really very amazing. You may find the makeup not so nice at times but the pictures turn out perfect, so don't worry too much. I find my makeup very nice but the pictures from HB's camera doesn't look that good loh. But I am okie with it since it's only trial, will highlight to MUA on PS.
Thanks for your complement but seriously, I find myself okie looking only, thus hopefully the makeup & camera tricks can really make me ravishing ... hahaha
Talking about face *sigh*, I have a rather broad face too & HB has a sharp & narrow one, thus really have to depend on MUA & photograher to make me & HB look compatible & nice liao.
thanks! shall arrange with u later .. i esp like french mani & pedi .. haha
glad u got a date
let us know if u need help ya

i'm also interested to buy leh, can help me buy 6 bottles? maybe seabreeze & i can arrange to pick from from u?

hi hi gals.... so sorrie i cant post much earlier on... continue here... hehe
Unicorn... so did u buy ARISTON after all? hehe... yup... i find they look quite good... anyway, i dun have a hood, do u know? Coz i thought i didnt have the budget to get the glass one i like, furthermore, wont be doing alot of deepfrying etc... so thought no hood will have a different kind of look for a kitchen. hehe... save money...
For my hob, i got in on discount, only two burners... hehe... and its the glass type.The three burner glass hob called cristallo or something is a bit too close together, meaning u cant use all three at the same time, so in the end i chose the two burner kind. My mum kept saying i will regret when she heard what i bought. haha.. jialat
Oven definitely is an ARISTON... coz its a name that i trust... (duped by marketing people?) hehe... just very sure on Ariston when looking around for oven/washing machines
babysheep... u are really thoughtful... must have missed him lots... think he is going to cry when he saw the SPA... hehe... let us know his reaction ok?
bebe... no la... its okie... u already slim slim... anyway, we ate the dessert as well...yesterday, i attacked a scone at Cedele after my teochew porridge dinner... and after that, still feel unsatisfied. Under the encouragement of my FH, i ordered another orange carrot cake from Cedele.. i mean a slice la... a whole cake and i might just need to run ten hrs treadmill... hahaha... well... he said he is going to share, but as usual, he will eat one or two mouthfuls and the rest is all in my stomach. haha... who cares la. Just make sure i exercise then. hor? Lina? Yoga queen...
Anyway, bebe... thanks for the florist contact... i might not have time to go down, so if u have confirmed anything with them, let me know more..
babysheep: the Arcade. Level 3, Huang's Nail Room....
kekek seems like u gng to have a wonderful nite.. kekekeke... oh ya.. let us know his reaction.. kekeke.. i dun think i have the luxury till our house is here till last Q of the yr... haiz
another week, and another countdown to our AD, can't believe it's another 4 months away, for some of u, it's less than 3 months, getting excited?
so, u're quite inclined towards Ariston? i'm like c0co, i've got Ariston washer & dryer as well. Agree with babysheep, Technogas is more value for money but not as aesthically designed as Ariston. good luck with ur reno
how? r u an 'owl' now? any panda eyes staying up to watch Euro Cup?
it's ok, PS over, can afford to have a little eye bags but must make sure u recover in time for ur AD
er... not sure when is the next meet up, c0co's the main organiser for these meetings, thanks c0co
but do keep ur eyes glued to this thread and u'll be updated about the next meeting
forgot to reply u, no lah, ur arms are not fat. but i do have the same feeling as u as well, when i saw my PS pix, was very critical of myself, my double chin and my flabby arms got in the way of the pix as well
wow, u're so romantic, how? was ur hubby touched? i know i will be touched if i went back home and found it so nicely done up for a good nite's rest
agree with unicorn, u're very good with ur hands, good work with ur hand corsages, ring pillow & unity candle
busy gal, i may be going down to Expo this week, so, may see u there
house a little small ah? nevermind, easier to clean up as well
do u cook alot? if not, 2 burners should be sufficient for u
i guess for our mothers who cook alot, 2 burner hobs are definitely out for them but for us who do not cook as much, may be sufficient, so, don't worry gal
adidas: thanks... as for the date.. no hurry, just let me know..
Twinkletwinkle: cant PM u hor... email plsssss. keke while u are gng mad over ur reno, i am gng mad over my banquet.. errrr.. my hairs are dropping.. kekekek...
adidas: try Charles & keith, they have a pair silver colour, and with studs... strappy heels.. nice.. i am having it as my AD shoes... i am wearing Kua for 2nd Walk-in, and too using the same pair of heels.. LAZY to change... kekekke
shinchan, oh we overslept lor. We're suppose to reach the airport at 6am but we woke up at 8am. Stupid alarm clock! never ring lor!
Furthermore, we slept quite late at 2am after the thank you dinner for brothers & jie meis.
You cannot imagine when we woke up, how shocked we were in!!!
cOco: really?? kjekekekkeke.. where is BAnquet?? lol.. maybe the same oso. wgahhahahha.... anythings u hasnt settle.. or still shopping? if we have same things to shop, maybe we can go together. .kekke
I wasn't at home to welcome him when he returned home at about 3 am this morning cos I'm still living with my parents, not staying at our new place yet.
Will let u know his reaction later. Hehe. =)
I bought the materials at Spotlight and Arab Street. I find it cheaper and more personalised to do my own cos I was not prepared to fork out like more than $50 for a personalised ring pillow. Just finished the guestbook last night. It's all the same theme. Ivory ribbons and ivory roses.
We can meet up and I can show u how to do if u r interested. It's very simple. Guestbook took me just about an hour to complete. And Uhu glue is a lifesaver, makes everything so easy to work with.
So, which brand of cooker hood and hob did u get? Agree with Yvonne... Ariston's designs are very slick and look really nice. (looks like those designer kitchens) while Technogas is more functional. Of course, there's the price differential.
But if u bake, Kitchenaid equipment (from Mayer Marketing) is definitely the brand to go for. Their cake mixers really good and powerful, and the bowls can hold a lot of mixture.
Thanks for the compliment. I'll take care of myself... btw, I think EE must be done before ur wedding day leh. After marriage, I think u can go for ME (marriage encounter).
Where is ur new place? Agree with Yvonne. Smaller place is better. Much easier to clean. If not very siong. My parents live in a terrace, and we got no maid, so everytime do housework, it's really really siong for everyone.
Hope ur job gets better... I noe how tiring working weekends and long hours can get. Take care...
Coco / Yvonne:
Me and my FH, more or less, have set our eyes on ariston liao ..
But need to re-budget ..
We also like the glass surface hob but my FH said that I'm quite careless and he din wan me to destroy the hob ..
Futhermore, most of the ariston models came wif a safty valve, good for forgetful ppl like me when boiling something ..
Is your hubby touched by your romantic preparation ?? Both muz be over-dosed with love liao ..
babysheep: not easy to do housework. like u.. my PIL stays in Terrace, when it commes to cleaning.. siong! our place still not ready, so less one house to clean... if comes liao.. two house.. lagi siong.... i guess.. SB siong... whhhahaha...
today woke up with whole body ache. yes c0co, moi went to gym yesterday, for both body combat n yoga. then late evening went hse-shopping with my ILs. super aching...
2 is little if u are keen on cooking, but still alright lah. I guess for us, we use a no of other cooking stuff like microwave etc.. dun really need tt much as our mums. the most cook simple stuff, gd excuses hor!
there's advantage of having a small hse and 1 very gd one is easier hse-keeping. Let it be a cosy-loving hse for both of u.
I just spoke to Ben, ID guy, yesterday. He came over and look at my ILs' place. wa... my MIL is super detailed abt those defects.. keke... dun noe when the developer can hand over the hse n renovation can start...
U see how, just be extra careful abt those who quote very low, they might compromise on quality in order to make margins. Okie.. this wk u will be busy, must take care and hv gd rest as much as u can.
U are such a gd wife. i already "stop" this romantic stuff 1 yr ago. Keep telling myself will do so when we finally hv a place of our own.
