I only prefer clementi area but not sure if it will be opened for balloting. Our plan is to stay with FILs first after married cos very siong to settle hse n wedding at the same time.
You ve to efile the date, call and book a JP/GL from the list given.
I just attended my friend ROM this evening. They had it at Safra chalent and David Loh was the JP. He is very friendly n helpful and I was told that he is very popular. Most likely will consider him for mine too.
i'm not a feb 04 bride but i'm thinking of having my wedding dinner in 2004 at raffles the plaza too! lovely place ain't it? and convenient too...
but read from the rather inactive westin thread that they're not very generous with giving additional perks... do you think you could share the details of your package so i can get an idea of what they're willing to offer?
could i have the geomancer reference as well??? Really want to look up for good dates next year...
Rest of the Gals,
btw, what is ROM ruling now for the no. of guests entering the solemisation room??
I got my toa payoh flat which is near central during last dec balloting. Only manage to get my selection of the remaining flat in March. Usually for first time buyer, the priority will be twice but of course if your parent is staying near to u, the priority will be thrice...
My selection is actually the third round which other successful applicants forfeit their selections from the earlier 2 rounds. The remaining flats are either of low floors or the feng shui is no good or the house number or blk number is unlucky etc. Luckily my Queue number is 16 but I am the third one to choose my flat as the 13 applicants in front of me rejected the selection due to high price or they do not really like the remaining flats.
For those who are still waiting for balloting, you must be prepared to choose the remaining flats which are not popular. Just let you know that for first time buyer, you do not have the $30,000 grant if you wish to purchase your flat under the balloting exercise . $30,000 grant is only applicable for resale & EC only.
No offense, but are you CRAZY??? Where got $100k??? We don't even have $50k!!!! And you claim not to be rich??? *arrggh*
My friend had David Loh too. He's supposed to be very popular, so book quickly before he's taken up. But to answer your question, my friend had her ROM at ROM itself, & she just happened to be assigned David Loh. Sorry can't help you there. But maybe u'd like to check the ROM threads for other gals' advice?
Silver - Oic. But I remember seeing the Clementi flats next to NTUC completed while I was still in NUS 2 yrs ago. U mean they're still unoccupied?
*yawns* I dread waking up so early every morning! hehe.. It's the waking up part that i hate! hehe..
silver, i dun think the clementi batch still available rite? Now the current balloting is now at Bt Batok/Choa Chu Kang... Think these 2 areas still have lots of flats, maybe u would like to consider these too, since they're in the west areas as well...
Wow, guessed I have to lie low like 'somebody' (kekekeke)
else liao as I have nothing to contribute for housing... cos at the meantime, me havnt go into ROM preprations dun even mention about house! HAHA... but will note all the referencing by you all! Thanks!!!
CC2: Hi! Your package doesnt come with photoshoot?
INO/SILVER: Me tot chinatown are those blocks of old flats? And not very convinence then how come all like FULL and so xpensive?
I don't think so, i had a pleasant negotiation with Dannis from Raffles the plaza. He is very nice and prompt in calling me for appointments. He send me the proposal with their schedule programs and wedding songs for the night and he is also flexible in the no. of tables that i book. And he also has contacts for cheaper wines, beers, musicians, projector rental whereby no commission is earned.
He is also very generous in the perks he gave to me, more that what other hotel is willing to give me. do you mind if i email to you the perks that I managed to negotiate with him because I do not want everyone to go and ask him for the same stuff. Not very nice and fair for him.

They have 2 different photography packages, RM1500 and RM1800 respectively. I can't remember the exact details. I think the RM1800 has 32 pcs of 8" x 10" photos, table top, 20" x 24" portrait, 24 pcs of 3R, etc.
I haven't booked with them yet. Still considering.
Hope to get a better deal from them before I decide.
CC2: Oh, so your gowns blablabla costing you RM2688 then on top of that you have to either pay $1500 or $1800 for the photography ah? *correct me IF Im wrong* So would be about $4K? Alright lah, after convert to Sin is also about $2K... good deal!
