berry - will pray for you and daphne... my dog always sticks to me like super glue, follow me to the toilet also..
daphne - don't be so upset... next time gotta remember to lock your locker ok....
caitlyn - what's your budget like for the catering? I'll be using this caterer - Flavours & Aroma for my church wedding reception. My company has been using them for quite sometime.. received a lot of good comments from my doctors & colleagues... You can try calling them at 62227877 and speak to Herson... They should be able to propose a lunch menu at around S$10 - S$15 per pax...
how do you feel about this, is dowry important to you? At first I thought I;m alright to do without but when she told me about those chin chai things.....I felt real bad...my mil is worse she said ' just anyhow buy the thin thin chain and necklace for show' and you know what she gave really good dowry to my sis in law..I mean its not so much that I want the dowry but it is how much she values me in a sense...
so what is your stand? My dad is going to neg with the dowry with her.....
For morning events, that's called xpress highlights. Usually done by videographer. I will have that, as well as montage (showing childhood photos till now). I think quite nice wat.. always enjoyable part of dinner.. cos it's very personal.. ;p
nowadays.. some people also show proposal story, or story of how they met, using animation
I have negotiated with MM for free use of projector and screen too. I remembered that time Merchant Court is charging for the usage too... try to bargain lar..

WAH LAU! i also like you lor! thot my dad so nice already arrange everybody nicely into tables of ten. so i type into excel spreadsheet monday nite right, then he emailed me a NEW seating arrangement YESTERDAY!!! ARGH!!! i said to him "why not tell me what the changes are" and then he said quite major change. ALAMAK! it's especially tough when it's your own dad right? i mean, it's easy for us to grumble about in-laws, but when it's your own mum or dad. can't say anything right?
Berry, amy, wah you have very cute dogs leh, even follow you to toilet so cute hehhee.
Ladies, i finally sort out the pin jin and table thing this morning, hehe when my mum was brushing her teeth, i brought up the topic....
for GDL, she is going to ask for a nice sum of pin jin, may be a large sum, she says she going to check with grandma, but she says it is for show only, she will return us the main bulk. (but my hubby says should at least let her keep 2888).
then for dinner, we are not going to say "who gives who how many tables", we are going modern way of just sharing everything. then parents will return us all the angpow to pay for the dinner.... my dad a bit surprised hehehe, but my mum says you wont want your daughter to struggle with the 10k of loan (10 tables) right? so he is ok liao hhehehe.
Thanks for your help. Just found out from my cousin that she has a projector, so can lend me
I was just very surprised that the hotel actually does not provide the projector. Tot it's usually in the package.
I cleaned up my house last week, but seems like it's never ending. Felt like i did a 21km marathom after all the housework.. got muscle ache.. hee hee..
hi Mrs Wee,
I will be flashing our childhood photos and a video of my family and friends' well wishes and what they want to say to us for out wedding. Will be showing them while the guests are waiting for the banquet to start
germ... mmm... really very difficult to work wif boss like that... probably she also dunno what to do that's why she push to you... kekeke... do you have colleagues who are doing similar stuff as you? can ask them?
yrs at midpoint orchard which floor?? $12 for whole face or onli eyebrow?? my beautician charge mi $10 4 whole face but she din know how to do eyebrow leh..
which fl at Peninuslar huh for threading??
pierced & berry,
i done it last sun but tink is okie not dat painful...not sure izzit not dat traditionally cos aft threading my beautician still shave 4 mi which i find it quite weird but nv do b4 so dunno leh...
wah, winnie, so good that u finally settle that.... i think for the tables, i would be following your way of sharing.... just take watever APs i can to cover and mum will just top up from the APs she collected.
juz wonder can we wear white shoes for PS for WG, EG & Kua?? my BS asked mi to buy sliver shoes wif crystal to match leh cos she said white shoes only suitable for WG....actually thought my gown is v long & cover my shoes so make do diff leh...any comments??
is actually using thread to remove yr hair on yr face..heard alot of ppl said aft threading will look v good when put on make up...dunno how true...got to check wif watashi as she done once a month...
jam, i only have 1 shoe for all the gowns. actually regretted splurging on the shoe coz it will be hidden under the gown, can't see at all.
the threading salon is on 3rd flr, Reflexion beauty. must make appt before going down, its always very crowded. u mean they shave your eyebrow??..
daphne..threading is to remove all facial hair & also trim & shape your eyebrow. after threading..face will feel very fresh & not so oily. make-up can last longer. I go abt every 6wks coz i'm a 'hairy' gal!
U wanna try?
me too think is waste of $$$ to spend on shoes cos can't c rite..as 4 the threading she shave my eyebrow cos she din know how to do eyebrow n oso my entire face as she mentioned to make it more clean..according to my mom if they done a good job threading will be prefect and don need shaving lor...
Newbbi, sorry waht is ping li, you mean the gifts?? still not confirm that other than wine, pin jin, cake, oranges, waht other things my hubby will bring. i saw your GDL list in the other thread, i will ask my mum if she wants those... hehe sorry coup your idea. is those abalone mushroom required for your dialect??
me mum will return the pin jin, half oranges, extra cakes, then all basin, tum pui, towel, and then give us new bedsheet quilt cover etc.
jam, i only have 1 pair of shoes hehe cheap cheap white sandals from Charles and keith for my WG, I will wear the same thing for my EG cos it cannot be seen anyway cos my EG is the kind of gown type so sure cover one hehehe.
as for kua, i saw the pair of embroidered flat sole shoes in XOdus, i think 40+ i am still waiting for it to go on sale before i buy heheh, dont want to spend too much, cos i suspect i will only wear it once....
watashi, me oso go threading! for my brows tho.. i used to go reflexion in peninsular yrs back but find it very painful.. now i go to one in selegie house (near little india). $5 and much neater than plucking. strongly rec u gals to do threading.. but muz got high tolerance for pain lah!!
for tables topic.. my ma said she keeping the table monies.. so i dun wana argue wif her over it since i tink she brot me up, so hv all the rite to keep.. but she said will fork out money to help us in case we wana buy house in future (reno etc).. so cut both ways ya..
caitlyn, try neogarden for catering! www.neogarden.com.sg

November is fast approaching!!! How're all your preps coming along?? I've bought my ang bao box, but have yet to bring it to get it decorated. Will do that closer to my wedding. Have you ladies settled on all matters floral? Like your bouquet, bridesmaids' bouquets, corsages, etc?? I have not done that yet! YIKES!!!
Agree with u that it seems never ending to clean up the house. I find that walking from living room to the bedroom n kitchen seems so far. Walking here n there already so tiring, furthermore must sweep,mop n clean up the mirrors n windows n cook. BUT good exercise cause can slim down for the wedding. haha
So happy this weekend my furniture are coming in. Ye!
harlo gals.. i am bk. just finished readin all the posts since yesterday morning in the midst of clearin my emails n work. ;p
ytd went to buy toilet accessories n c lighting until my eyes blurry liao! so many diff kinds! we spent $800+ jus on toilet stuff ~omg~
caitlyn/ berry- i'm takin over my PIL's hse (5 rm hdb flat). jus nid minor renov. re-do both toilets n the MBR. the tenants moved in abt 1 mth ago lo.. anyway, the toilet wil be ready by today so they can move bk liaos.
this tables thingy also giving me a headache! at 1st, my mum wan 10 tables (the APs wil go to her), nw she says she wan 3 more n she wil pay for this 3 extra. but she hasnt even cm out w the list yet. she stil tinks its early. i buey tahan leh! told her its beta to get it done earlier. n nw after we added up everybody we gonna invite, realised we nid another 7 more tables! wah piang.. nw lookin at the list n c who can eliminate.. grrr
winnie- i also bot a pair of cheap cheap heels frm C&K. anyway hidden under our gown cant c also. hahas
again u hv to c whehter yr hotel can accomdate the increase no. of table...we oso headache our list keep on increase n already max liow...so now got to cut down our list instead of parents one...worse things if relatives many tink ang bao can't cover up the dinner..usually relatives will come wif 2 to 3 person but only 1 ang bao...
