Hi barley, how is ur fitting today?


New Member
Hi Pisduck
Hope you are feeling better. Couldn't reply on Thurs coz I was busy packing my belongings to shift to my new place and guess what? I still couldn't finished packing! Argh!

I know what you mean about "just come out with the money and throw the chores to somebody else". I expected myself to be busy juggling work and wedding preps so for certain stuff, we outsourced - eg wrist corsages.

Hi d woof
Thanks for sharing your pics! I like your album! Where did you go for your outdoor shots? I like the one where it looks like you're at some ruins.
Very sweet bride!

Hi Averyl
My deepest condolences to you. Hope you are holding up fine.

Hi ying
Saw your PS pics already. The bed shots concept is something really different. Your nite shots are also quite unique!

New Member
Hi Gin & Piggersorous,
Thanks for yr remark.

Hi Zoeanne,
Can share yr PS photos once ready? Thanks.
Also, do not think too much abt the retrenchment.. everything will turns out fine.

Hi TanWendy,
Which is yr BS? Actually, isnt yr dinner comes after yr tea customary? Better book a date of yr PS soon. Either in May or June as you will need at least 2 mth for the photos. Usually they will return you the photos at least 10 days before yr AD.

Finally got our new KEY to our love nest! But pondering over the layout and designs. So many details works to think of.
If anyone interested getting wooden furniture can visit 'ScanTeak' warehse. They are having 50- 70% sales and until this sun. We went today and bought some wooden shelving and mirror fm them. Quite a good buy.

hi mei
if buy fr carre four pls call earlier to check that ur wine delivery is in order. ideally all the bottles fr the same batch. my sister's fren met with slight prob. they delivered wine fr 2 different batches. the guests drank & found the taste not consistent. so just take note!

To answer your questions, hubby and I decided that we want a baby now because we really want to. Hubby made it abundantly clear to me after he proposed that he wants a family. I was hesitant initially and I asked all the questions you asked. And he convinced me this is the thing we want to do. (plus he's a good salesman)haha.

We want a baby now cos we are still young and healthy (minus the smoking etc etc lar)Hopefully I will get my figure back quickly as well, with my metabolism still high and all. heh! He wants one soon so that he wont be too old to play football with a son/daughter when they grow up.

The world is a funny place to live in but life is how you make it out to be right? Our parents did it with less money and more kids but look at how we all turned out. Not perfect but well enough to survive.

I think there'll be a LOT of worries to bring children to this world but everyone we spoke to who have children have said that although it is hard being parents and having all these responsibilities, the joy come from the children themselves and that's intangible.

Financially (which is my concern), hubby said something that rang true to me. There'll never be a day when you have ENOUGH money. Unless of course, we struck 4D. So we'll just have to prioritise.

But having said that, we must be ready with a mindset. We know that if we are blessed with one someday, our lives are not our individual own again. But as both hubby and I have done what we wanted to do as singles then, we've partied hard, we've travelled to half of the world and been on the "rock n roll" many times around the block, so we've decided maybe this is time for a different life.

All in all, we are still idealistic. But sometimes in this cynical world, it may not be so wrong to be idealistic. Perhaps having a baby is like an extension of our love. *eeww..mushy talk* but somehow it feels that way

So do we really want Project B? Yes, as hubby said to me, "it's us against the world, kiddo!"


New Member
hahahha.. i did a fast calculation, think i'm suppose to weight btw the cost and the risk of the art work of my pics... hehehe.. let me finish my exam on mon then i will start to think abt it. following mon is my first fitting, I will try to take a look at EB PG latest work. then maybe from there i will decide. if i confirm my ps at eb, guess i jus have to trust them and hope for the best lor..hehehehe... (think wun be tat bad lah.. haahahahaha)

I got back my invitation inserts and i going to start writing friends/relatives name on it and start calling them. Heeee!


New Member
- Wat make u wan to have Project B now?
Answer: Because if I have them later, there will be a lot of complication. Even if I want them now, I might not get it, so let nature take it course.

- Any worry abt bringing them to this stressful world?
Stressful world brings up kids that learn how to due with stress. Unstressful world bring up spoilt brat.

- Anyone tot of financial prob of Project B?
If you are poor, your kids will learn how to save for you. If you are rich, your kids will learn how to spend for you.

- Do u really wan Project B? Or only out of everyone is having it so I ought to have it too?
Frankly speaking, I dun really like children. But I believe having them around so that they can help me with my housework when they grow up. Muahahahahaha!

hey girls! did lots of things last 2 days. got tons of info... ;)

in case anyone scouting for fabric for cheongsam or even bridesmaid dress, Arab St has a shop called Alta Moda (#92) it has the nicest fabric. i brought my mum to choose fabric for MTM. it has a good range from like $30 per meter to $3k per meter!

think my mum decided to go with this lady called Sally her shop name is called Swagger at the plaza hotel arcade (not the furniture mall, next to it). think she charges like $400-500 per CS. but we're gonna go for blouse and pants, dunno how much she charges for those. but her quality is VERY GOOD. saw the stuff she had made there.

There's another one at far east plaza called shanghai silk house. it's like half a shop and they make their stuff in China. looks quite decent but expensive as well. $380 for half CS, and $400-500 for full length one.

went to this shop @ far east plaza (i spent half a day there today, facial & hair) it's called JS Paradigm #04-63. i saw this contact in another thread. this lady called jeannie. she uses Sothys products. she's very good i like her. she doesn't force sell things to you, doesn't talk too much. very nice and friendly. and CHEAP! $48 for basic facial, $58 incl shoulder massage. i'm one happy customer, will go back again. she said i dont need to go often so once a month will be good enough.

also saw some really nice shoes at Hue (3rd flr @ scotts) but they're not cheap. like around $270 for diamante heels. but looks very well made and comfortable. about 3-3.5".

am so glad my mum finally decided what to get. she goes this gorgeous lilac colour french lace for a blouse and nippon silk for simple straight cut pants. we decided that a blouse and pants will be more versatile and she's likely to wear it again in future.

Hi gals,

Long time din come this thread. Seems to have a lot of happening around here. Everyone seems to start preparing for PS ?


New Member
wow, haven't been in here for sometime, heehee so surprised tat celt got good news for us so soon :p

who else is working hard on project B? Besides honeygem?

for me, no no no... i have my project D and H also... 2 project Cs at my mum's place and also may have to adopt my sister's project R this june... hee, my hubby say i like animals more than humans

for me ah, the biggest worry abt having project B is the $$$ lah... although we will never have enough money to spend, but at least must be financially stable lor... me still comtemplating to quit without job, and hubby also wan to look for new job... plus all the reno and tuition fee loans still hanging over our heads.. we both agreed tat must be debt-free (except for the housing loan lah) before we can have bb... hahaha, tat's at least 3 years down the road, so i can aviod this topic with hubby for now (cos he really like bb, but i not so keen)


New Member
Speaking of heels and shoes, i cant help posting mine up here to show you girls. i bot them last yr. will be wearing with both WG & EG on AD.


New Member
heya lynn! long time no hear

I second maraquan's remarks. To be honest, I dont like children much too, they terrify me. But if Ihave my own, I can boss them around to help me with housework. And I have them to be remote controls in the house apart from hubby. hahahaha
