<font color="0000ff">storm dear.. think you have your reasons for being upset too.. its like life is so precious and even though he is just a foetus.. also cannot deprived him the chance of coming into the world.. the child is indeed innoncent.. but i think if she is not ready for the child.. then it might be better for her not to have the baby.. dun want her to later regret and blame the child.. think its a moral dilemma.. think every person will handle the situation differently..being a single mum takes a lot of courage and some people are able to walk that path while others may not.. and after all we are asians.. and she will have to face the world as a single with a growing tummy.. not everyone can take that kind of pressure..think she is under a lot of pressure and feeling lost too.but she is afterall the mum to be.. so its really her decision and as her close fren, i am sure you will support her decision and stand by her.. she must have been a very close fren since she choose to confide in you.. and i am sure she is looking for some support and advice..

yah man.. so exciting right.. year 2006 is here in like 2 days.. where will you gers be going for count down?? duno why.. but singapore dun seems to have the celebratory mood.

Hi, count,

Hi, Jacqueline,
happie birthday ahh..

Hi, All,
here's wishing u all a Happie New Year.. good luck in wedding preparations in the year ahead...


New Member
Jacq happy birthday and blessings for the yr ahead!

Ffbear, hi 5! Which mattress did u get? We got the San Marino (the one used in Four Seasons Hotel) and a normal headboard w/o the box spring. Cost almost $3K after the Robinsons discount. My mum also said we're "silly" to spend so much on a mattress. But the mattress feels so nice...

Storm, the best u can do at this time is to be there for ur friend, and let her know tt u'll be ard if she needs help. Sigh...

Sure tt all of us are eager to get married too! Finally it is less than 12 months to go. But seems like a lot of things are undone. Still hunting for church florist, wedding bands, gown ideas etc


New Member
Hi Cindee

Can share with me your photos too? you can send to [email protected].

Hello Ginger &amp; Sinkor
Wow...I think you may be able to help me with my fat arms....Can you tell me more about this cream?


New Member
Hi Magical,

My PS was quite fun experience. Too bad, I did not get to goto all bthe places that I wanted to take photos at and the weather was very cloudy. At least it did not rain, just a slight drizzle at night. My make up and hair was very thick until the rain did not even affect it one bit. Hee Hee. I dunno when I will be able to view the pics. The photographer promised me that I can choose in 2 weeks.


Active Member
Hi gals!
yah, the year is almost over...this year went by quite quickly I feel. 2006 sure fly by before we know it manz...

Jacq, Happy Birthday in advance!

Chomecc, I've shortlisted Nick G*h, Hurricadia, Beetles@Work. But FH so busy lately, can't sit down to discuss with him also. So, everything is like hanging in the air lorh.

Eh, where do you gals go to shop for your wedding bands? Think I need to start looking ard also...


New Member
Lipstar, I like you more and more. My "influence" have rubbed off on you...You are now officially also quite kaypoh ask Shortcake so many questions....


New Member
Can consider using Ribena to replace red wine during tekan time since the colour is close.

they know i can drink so i mentally prepare for the tekan liao.


New Member
Hello beautiful gals of Nov 06! Compliments of the season &amp; a great new year!

Wow! Summer &amp; CSI Fan, soooo happy to hear about your FH's proposal! Hehe, my FH discussed with me &amp; decided on the wedding date in Sep05. But it's like chatting &amp; deciding, haiz thought must propose then plan mah. He said propoer proposal will come only early next year. Don't understand.

Hey Count &amp; Frais, thanks for concern, my venue still not sorted. My FH was sick week before so could not contact he venues, he called last week to book appts for this week, then he said not meeting already coz they're busy with Xmas NY so he's asking them to email proposal. Sigh, since this is his "job" then let him settle it lor. Guess this is a test of whether my "kan-cheong stick to project timeline" vs his "slow steady don't worry, timeline is only a guide, not a must" can manage the preparation smoothly together. I'm learning to let go &amp; relax although I feel like an ant on a hot pot.

Storm, it's a really tough situation your fren is in. As true friends, we can offer our frank opinion, but at the end of the day, it's her personal decision. We can only stand by &amp; support them. Pray for her to have the wisdom to decide what to do &amp; the strength to go through it.


New Member
Vonn, your complexion must be so nice now...the sunshine smile when you receive the present &amp; the nice bird's nest too!

Hi Ivy, I wish I can go with you BS shopping, but I'm very fickle, scared if I go with you, I have 2nd thoughts of my own. So hope you don't mind I can't go with you. But I can email you my opinions of Dang &amp; Sattine, if you wish.

Welcome Blur Gal *wave*

New Member
Hi gals

The G-cream sounds really effective...hm...But wonder if there are any side effects to it?
Me also looking for ways to slim down.....


New Member
Hi Irene
Can i take a look at ur pics too? [email protected] thanks!!

Hi belle, chris &amp; greta thanks!

I spent one nite sewing the pillow &amp; another nite stitchin on the wedding bears &amp; bows. you're very observant belle, the bows are indeed slanted. They are kinda short (my misjudgment lor) so gotta sew them to the pillow (but is nt done yet). Still got to improve on it. But the shape &amp; design is somewhat there.

Where did u go for your mini HM? How's ur trip?


New Member
My AD next Sunday. Will go Dashing Diva to do my Pedi. A bit pricy and I hope its good.

Linda, try to bring some lemon ginger tea. I bought some from Marks &amp; Spencer. Nice.
I hope this helps if the next day you both have hang over. I think that Ribena drink won't work. Your friends sure pour some wine or whatever liquor into a fresh new glass and get both of you to drink and then what are you going to do?!? Act drunk? No way.
What are the other things you ladies plan to take to your hotel when you check in? The gowns, shoes la, tolietries la.. wat else?


New Member
Hazel: Thanks dear. 9 is more than sufficient. Don't need to source for more oredi. Thanks a lot.

You too, Idyll. Thanks so much for your help.

Hazel: In that case, I call you around 1pm after I finish work. I'll meet you tomorrow around 1.45pm near your place.


New Member
Hi Lipstar,

Ohh .. we are having our AD on the same day!??
Heh, my folks and my relatives were complaining abt dates that fall in april cus of Qing Ming.
But i have actually went to a geomancer and base on both our "Ba Zi" and of course with the "when both of us are free months" and "weekends" as a choosing the date criteria - we end up as 22 april - the best date.

Heh, you got me wrong, the whole photoshoot starts from 10am - 4plus in the afternoon (both indoor &amp; outdoor) Outdoor we started at 2pm, chop chop .. very fast

wah ... yours includes night shots .. must be really Nice .. cant wait to see your pictures..



New Member
HI Jocester
went malacca
...was alrite...mainly makan and shop a little and slack alot in our mini suite
...hubby's buddy coincidentally was there too with his wife....had slight drizzle and hubby was really sweet to hold and carry my lavendar umbrella as I was and still having a gigantic flu bug... hehehe (he usually doesn't bother).

hi spring and irene

[email protected]


New Member
Hi ebell,

Yup, more like a wedding lunch at Ritz but throw in a ROM before that.. :p N wedding dinner for relative only at RSYC.. Will most prob be taking their function rooms as older pp are still not that used to open air. hehhe


New Member
Shortcake, Welcome to April 06 Brides Family!
I too have my outdoor Photoshot taken at Sentosa last Monday. Weather not very good too, but we manage to finish the shots.I have already took my In door shots abt 2 weeks ago.


NAh,I am quite relaxed now. Basically, my current situation is somehow like a "waiting game" as I have completed almost all critcal stuff. Below are some things which I am doing or waiting to do:

1) Waiting for my hotel coordinator to call me in Jan for selection of cards, themes, foodtasting etc.

2) Working now and then on my wedding webpage.

3) Keying in all the contacts of my "tentative" guests in my wedding template for ease od RSVP later on.

4) Waiting to apply for ROM date on AD.

5) My wine has been confirmed. Hey lipstar, how's ur wine confirmation?

6) Listing down and sourcing all the things my mum needs for " guo da li" which falls on the
17th april 06.

7) Waiting for my PS photos to be ready.

I guess that's abt all...


New Member

maybe have light bag if want to go shopping


New Member
