Muahahaha, I quit my job just before my wedding, I am a stay at home taitai now. I am still not in the mood of looking for another job. The thought of stepping into another cage and getting people to stab on me is not my cup of tea at the moment. I think I will stay at home until I am sick of being a taitai.

gals, i m currently looking for ang bao box and wedding favours too...any gd recommendations? for wrist corsages, i saw a shop selling it at compass pt in various colors, quite cheap i think..u might go and have a look if you don't want DIY them.
Gals, an update on my scouting yesterday hehehe, was very hot and my hubby is grumbling all the way.
we went to stefine, but hor, very sorry, we did not go in, cos we realised it is a flat, there are alot of children shoes and adult shoes, just a typiccal flat. we realised maybe the person is using the home to work and meet up. we are not very comfortable about this.
we went natural shots, but dont really like the video as there is no menu selection and we are only given one album to browse and the coordinator is rushing off, so not much impression.
we met up with berry happy, her works are good, but the pricing is a bit steep for the works she produced/
then finally big day studio. in my hubby definition, cheap, but though not very imprssive, but it is the value for $$. The person did not bring the album, thus we will be arranging with him to meet up again next week.
thus, after narrowing down, it is big day studio for this weekend.
next monday night, i am meeting wedtv and mabellee, thursday night meeting eulee, and sat night to vividshots, wedding academy and wedding pararazzi and i am going to conclude all this thing.
ops forgot to say i met up with ninetrogen on last fri night. the video is quite ok, but comparartively, quality about the same as big day studio but more ex. about $400 more. thus if we need to choose, we will go for the cheaper one.
as we met up ninetrogen in the wine cellar, we have some wine tasting too, we decided to settle for woodstock 6/1 six-to-one red wine from south australia (2001). my hubby likes it best and turn out it is only $15.50. suits our budget. and then we are going to get 36 bottles, they allowed up to 1/3 to be returned if unconsumed/ the downpayment is 30% and the rest payable upon delivery/ they will deliver 2 days in advance to the hotel for us.
hi sk2, thanks for the update, my flat is in sengkang, caterer will take neogarden, wg shoes considering from xodus. and wedding band was from lee hwa.
wow maraquan, really envy u for being a taitai now

The Hardest Thing I Had To Say
It all started when I was 6 years old. While I was playing outside on my farm in California, I met a boy. He was an average kind of boy who teased you and then you chased them and beat them up. After that first meeting in which I beat him up, we kept on meeting and beating each other up at the fence. That only lasted for a little while though. We would meet at the fence all the time and we were always together.
I would tell him all my secrets. He was very quiet and he would just listen to what I had to say. I found him easy to talk to and I could talk to him about everything. In school we had separate friends but when we got home we would always talk about what happened in school. One day I said to him that a guy I liked hurt me and broke my heart. He just comforted me and said everything would be okay. He gave me words of encouragement and helped me get over him. I was happy and thought of him as a real friend. But I knew that there was something else about him that I liked. I thought of it that night and figured it was just a friend kind of thing that I was feeling.
All through high school and even through graduation we're always together and of course I thought of it as being friends. But I knew deep inside that I really felt differently. On graduation night even though we had different dates to the prom I wanted to be with him. That night after everybody went home, I went to his house and wanted to tell him that I wanted to see him. Well, that night was my big chance and all I did was just sit there with him watching the stars and talking about what I was going to do and what he was going to do. I looked into his eyes and listened to him talk about what his dream was. How he wanted to get married and settle down. He said how he wanted to be rich and successful. All I could do was to tell him my dream and cuddle next to him.
I went home hurting because I didn't tell him how I was feeling. I wanted to tell him so bad that I loved him but I was too scared and frightened. I let my feelings go and told myself that someday I would tell him just how I felt. All through college I wanted to tell him but he always had someone with him. After graduation he got a job in New York, I was happy for him but at the same time I was sad to see him go. I was sad also because I didn't tell him how I felt. But I couldn't let him know now that he was leaving for his big job. So I just kept it to myself and watched him go on the plane. I cried as I hugged him for what I felt was going to be the last time. I went home that night and cried my eyes out. I felt hurt that I didn't tell him what I had inside my heart.
Well, I got a job as a secretary and then worked my way to a computer analyst. I was proud of what I had accomplished. One day I got a letter with an invitation to a marriage. It was from him, I was happy and sad at the same time. Now I know that I could never be with him and that we could only be friends. I went to the wedding the next month. It was a big occasion. The big church wedding and the reception at the hotel. I met the bride and of course him. I fell in love one more time. But I held back so it wouldn't spoil what should be the happiest day in his life. I tried to have fun that night but it was killing me inside watching him being so happy and me trying to be happy covering up my sadness tears inside of me.
I left New York feeling that I did the right thing. Before I left on the flight, he came running out of nowhere and said his good-byes and how he was very happy to see me. I came home and just tried to forget about what went on in New York. I had to go on with my life. As the years went on, we wrote to each other on what was going on and how he had missed talking to me. On one occasion he never wrote back to me at all. I was getting worried as to why he hadn't written anything for a long time after I had already written 6 letters to him. Well, just when everything seemed hopeless and sad in my life, I got a note that said: "Meet me at the fence where we used to talk about things". I went and saw him there. I was happy to see him, but he was broken-hearted and sad inside. We hugged until we couldn't breathe anymore.
Then he told me about the divorce and why he hadn't written for a long time. He cried until he couldn't cry anymore. Finally, we went back to the house and talked and laughed about what I had been going and to catch up on old times. But in all of this, I couldn't tell him how I felt about him. In the days that followed, he had fun and forgot about all his problem and his divorce. I fell in love again with him. When it came time for him to leave back to New York, I went to see him off and cried. I hated to see him leave. He promised to see me every time he could get a vacation. I couldn't wait for him to come so I could be with him. We would always have fun when we were together.
One day he didn't show up like he said he would. I figured that he might have been busy. The days turned into months and I just forgot about it. Then I got a call one day from a lawyer in New York. The lawyer said that he had died in a car accident going to the airport and that it took this long till everything was settled. It broke my heart. I was shocked about what took place. Now I knew why he didn't come that day. Again, I was broken-hearted. I cried that night, cried tears of sadness and heartache. Asking questions why did this happen to a kind guy like him?
I gathered my things and went to New York for the reading of his will. Of course, things were given to his family and his ex-wife. I finally got to meet her since the last time we met at the wedding. She explained to me how he was and how he always provided. But he was always unhappy. She would always try everything but she couldn't get him happy, as he was that night at their wedding. When the will was read, the one thing that was given to me was a diary. It was a diary that of his life. I cried as it was given to me. I didn't know what to think. Why was this given to me? I took it and flew back to California. As I flew on the plane I remembered the good times that we had together. I started reading the diary and what was written.
The diary was started with the day we first met. I read on till I started to cry. The diary told of him saying that he had fallen in love with me that day I was broken-hearted. But he was too afraid to tell me what he had felt. That is why he was so quiet and liked to listen to me. It told of how he wanted to tell me so many times, but was too afraid to say anything. It told of when he went to New York and fell in love with another. How the happiest time he had was seeing me and dancing with me at the wedding. He said he imagined it was our wedding. How he was always unhappy till he had no choice but to divorce his wife. How the best time in his life was to read the letters written to him by me. Finally, the diary ended when it said, "Today I will tell her I love her". It was the day he was killed. The day I was going to finally find out what was really in his heart.
i bought the rose bud tea leaves in mini jar (now on promotion) cos mine is a garden theme & the guest can bring hm to make tea too. i ask the lady to attach a small flower wif lace on the glass jar to make it look sweeter.
Any of you hear of the MLM brand Hunza? My aunt-in-law's family took it & she slim down so much. Their health also got better. My cousin-in-law that has rashes often is also better now. Seems to be good products.
