Yes i dun have to postphone my date. yippee....

Hey Serene Phoon Chien Yin (serene_lau),

iz possible for u to feed me w more info before i update the table on this thread. thanks.

I m kinda tied w work after I came back fr my trip.

I m not to sure if my suit is slighty ex or not cos we got a beri gd deal for price of S$450/-.....
meh meh,

if not too troublesome, can i get the address and contact from u? though many suggested go to far east plaza to get my CS altered, but not sure whch 1 good......afraid do wrongly end up point of no return....saw from the post that ur seamstress's workmanship like not bad...thk can try.....kekeke....no wirry if no gd me wun blame u 1.....


din noe ms J that blur....like that i thk safer to start early, discount a bit and give time and room to reticfy any possible errors...


u take ur time, decide liao then tell me...no worries.....wkend usually if I can help it I try to stay at home 1....so just gimme a buzz if u want to come and see the shoes....


unfortunately, the flower is singlely sold....doesn't come in a pkt. I paid hk$15 for each flower, that's abt $3.50 per flower lor....seems kinda not dat cheap lah....but maybe in sin there are places that may sell similar stuff for less, or in bulk....even at the end of the purchase, I tried bargaining, she oso nvr give me disc leh.....they say this kinda things they dun earn much,and it's consider very cheap liao....so i just take the price as such....the flowers actually they sell meant for hair-do 1...it's for the brides to stick in their hair to match their hand-bouquet...


can.....me in SGP thur,fri and sat....we can arrange a time to meet lor.....let u noe my schedule, then u see which day comvenient for u....me thur morning touch-down,afternoon 4pm appt with hairdresser @yishun northpoint.(may have dinner appt bt no confirm yet) fri noon gg to marriots to see my SDJ designer,then 3pm meeting EG designer for measurement. after that likely to head home coz MUA coming to my house to do trial make-up and hair-do......sat i shld be at home whole day....me stay near buangkok...if u like, we can meet yum cha oso ard the area.....my shoes size 37, thk that's abt 6 1/2 or 7.

as for corsage,me still at experimenting stage....got the design liao, but haven't really figured out how to attach the ribbon for the wrist corsage and how to attach the safety pin for the butonnieres.


thx for the extra info.....next few days in SGP i off gg to try squeeze some time to chk those places out! u gals have been most helpful....


that's very nice of ur hotel....thk it's quite a good deal...afterall, invite from hotel no originality, not personal, and they dun cost much.....getting the cake is a very good deal....then at least u can get them to do it in a way that match ur colour scheme or theme for the nite....
happy for u....hope by the time i neg with my hotel for stuff,it would be smooth-sailing like urs too.....

as for chinese words, thk can kaypoh, go bras basah and chk out....ask for fun but copy out the format.....me thking of doing away with the chinese version of the invite, coz basically these days most pple do read and can understand english...whatsmore, end of the day, they wud likely refer to the english part for date, time and venue...keke.....I now trying to neg with my folks to delete the chinese part, since most of my gfs oso din have chinese words for their invites....i very bad lor....personally find it very ching chong,so die die if can get my way again wud definitely do away with it....


me no dog, but thk wud be fun....

SK2, u think u look good the bustier mermaid gown.. especially the side view pic. the high neck WG is nice too. I like that the bustier EG with long train, think its simple & classy. Is that green in color hah?

Hi Pierced.... me just came back from dinner @ Habour Front.! Theres another shop called VNC on the 2nd level, also has quite a wide range of nice heels, price ok also. U can go check it out. I have been to both shops, but too bad they have any 4" shoes .. :]


New Member
Hi Tan
Yeah,, ok. I shop and let u know..

Hi Janice
The size of pic is too big? U can reduce the resolution by using MS photo editor.. there is a tool which call RESIZE..... if not, other photo editing software also can

Wah.. ur PS must be very nice, with colourful pics.. envy.... Petain Rd.. hmmmm... shd go n see..


New Member
Hi Renee,

Huh.. u got him to quote even before you met him up? So has he taken a look at your house? If not.. how does he do the quote then? ;p

We are only starting reno in May.. so no pictures to share yet.. but I have seen the preliminary 3D drawings he has done up for us, and they are quite nice indeed... ;p

BTW, the 1st quote we got from Johnny are big lumpsum figures.. so we asked him to itemise and price each activity, which he did.. so you can probably ask him to do that too...


New Member

(cu2nite grab tan's face n...mmmuacks)..hehehe..

New Member
Janice - U can use any photo editor program to crop the pic to make it smaller. What programs do you have?

I think Changi got quite nice places right? My friend went to Changi too & she also took at a dirty abandon house, it is quite nice.

I haven't thot about where I want to take my photos.

Shall we compile a list of options here? I will start with the places I know ppl go:

1.) Sentosa - Siloso Beach
2.) Changi Beach
3.) Senton Way
4.) Fullerton
5.) Esplanade
6.) Fullerton I

WW - Ya, our dear Ms J is super blur. Someone at the RH thread also commented that she seems a bit blur blur. Haha.. so, I'm not the only one who thinks tt way. That's y I'm thinking of starting earlier than planned too. Think end May is gd.

5pkts what colour?
add on to this list ya!

Janice - 2pkt light pink furry, 1pkt white furry.
Kit - u want the shoes? after u see and try then
Zoeanne - u shop ard then let me noe?
Jelly - u count how many u need 1st ya?
cu2nite - 5pkt furry...(pls state colour)

btw,thx for the info on the shoes....looks like its gonna be 1 stop ard chinatown to find shoes (since OG there may have what I'm looking for) and oso additional material for the wirst corsage and butonnieres.
thk even for guys better to use fake coz if they gonna wear it whole day, freash flowers may look very withered....


really ah? chelat lor....anyway, my hubby the no nonsense type....if she really gonna blur, thk my hubby wud blow his top...then me have to end up diffusing the situation....looks like once I get back from my PS better hurry chop chop contact them.....honestly lor....if she can't handle, I rather let mr S handle....he like quite perfectionist sort....dun thk he wud allow any screw-up along the way....somehow I noe i wud feel safer with him.....

me hardly have that much time so these days haven't really drop into RH thread to chk things out.....looks like since I got 1 more day to rot here in Punjab, I may just do that either 2nite or 2mrw......


New Member
gd morning jovia,

i only emailed him my floor plan plus requirement and he quote accordingly without desiging yet.
Ya, he quoted by whole figure per catergory instead of breaking down... maybe need to ask him to do that.
The price he quoted is abt same as other ID but he said it can be discussed again.


New Member
hi WW,
wow... looks like u managed to find quite alot of gd buys from HK huh and so nice of u to help all buy stuff from HK...

ur shoes jin nice leh..

hi JTan
WOW! so nice of ur hotel to give u a real wedd cake in xchange for ur invites... tink u earn liaos.. hahaha

hey janice,
wich program r u using? if its microsoft photo editor, u can jus click on "Image" and select "Resize" and tat does the job.

me bot a pair of plain simple 3.5 inch heels from Vincci in JB... cheap cheap nia.. intend to use it for my AD.. show it to u gals..


New Member

Received the mould template from jasvy but there are mistakes. DO u call them to inform them to rectify or email them? Which is faster and more effective?
