Hi Purpleblur!

Me too doing PS in March & hopefully albums ready by June or so. My FH says that he want focus on the flat after June. Im also brainstorming for PS locations. Wrote to Scarlet Hotel to request to take PS there, but they said only room and the jacuzzi (somemore with a disclaimer that we cant disturb other guests.) Sigh.

Lipstar,
Dun thank me leh...
I felt so useless there...
I never fail in bargaining esp its 1 pic only...
I only start warming up...testing water of their attitude.

U dun feel the pain..I do leh..
The more I think...the more heartpain I m...
U dun ve to spend tat amt one...

I really want to "kick" the BS shop.
If not bcos I c yr FH & U so quiet...I really rather spent an hr there kick tat BS & ask them to wake up!
I dun expect yr BS to be like mine...serving us coffee & tea plus candies...also snacks when they know we haven eaten lunch.

But U r the customer there...N how can the pax serving U chatting with the other lady..
Then I haven finish shooting the lady boss, N she jux walk off like tat.
So rude.
Also, who said classic cant ve 2 or 3 pic in the same pg? Mine can...
N when I asked if yrs is digital, wouldnt it be so thing...N that lady still dare to ans me YES, NO CHOICE..only 11 pgs..its like tat...
*faint..how can she ans me this way...
tat means abt 5pcs only...SUPER thin..
somemore cant c the layout saying its STANDARD!
wat if U dun like their layout or didnt touch up properly? then their ans would be No Choice, its standard...
Also, 1 look, I c yrs. Got some part will ve diffulty in having digital. (got few pic with only 1 backgnd)
it doesnt flow well...
but I still know how to arrange it to make it flow.
of cos..adding a few more pic will flow better.
but its still ok...cos got a few can ve mirror image or crop it to make it seems like more pic.
there4, make it thicker...

aiyoo...still got other things..
sorry ah..I know its not my BS..but I really cant stand it.

N yes, pls chk yr receipt to chk if U can get the proof back.
If didnt written, call them up..
if U go there shopping, ask them to write B&W on the receipt..
They r the kind tat U must treat them harsh!
else would eat U up.
they everything see the receipt...if they never write..they can argue, they never promise U..

hi girls... sorry not to be back since so long... hmm.. everyone into additional pictures or not right now... actually i think when confirming package, better to "dig" as many as pics as possible, if not once confirm package liao, want more pics, sure kena "slaughter"... personally i think $65 or $85 is too ex...

how you girls doing? hows the preparation going so far? i feel that i have aged so much within the month with all the house reno n weddin preps going on together.. bad idea... but no choice liao...

hope everythin is going fine for all April 2006 brides ... !!

Happy Holidays!!

Hi ebell,
I just confirm the timing with the church so now waiting for the printer to give me the draft invites for our approval. My insert will hv church + dinner invitation printed together. I'll DIY church cards for some 20-40 guests that are only attending the church ceremony. Quite hard work lor cos I spent 3nights to do/arrange the chinese wordings but satisfying at the end of day. Now I'm doing the map thing...more difficult...if the effect no good, I'll get the printer to do it.

Hi bbsquid,
Wow $3k to open gate very siong leh...Is yr fren quite well off so the jiemei take more than wat they give?

Roidana, it's on Sunday afternoons and will last 5 weeks. U can call TOUCH up to find out what classes they have available. Think the course will be useful for us. Heh

Wah storm, u went so early on ah? Did u go for those courses suitable for couples considering marriage, rather than engaged couples? Cos they seem to have many courses. But u're not ks lah. We're going for the course by TOUCH and also the one by my church cos it's compulsory. So I'm doubly ks! Kekekekek

Wah ivy, the package seems quite comprehensive. But afraid i cannot give u gd advice cos i'm quite lost abt the specs for photo albums. Didn't shop ard much for photo albums and focused more on the PG's style instead. But i notice the package seems to lack some things - groom's shirt and pants, trial and PS make-up. U may also want to find out how much they charge for top-ups of gowns and how likely it is tt u'll have to top-up for ur gowns... Hope this helps =)

Hazel: Girl, don't worry about being talking too much.

I also despise my BS. That is why I keep calling it Bullsh!t.

I disliked them
kao_frustrated.gif
ever since I witnessed for myself how INFLEXIBLE they are, when they refused to let me go for my fitting of my MTM gowns 4 days before the actual PS because "it would be too early". I can only go for my fitting 3 days before my PS. -_-

I was also quiet after a few tries (of trying to negotiate for more pics) because I can tell that the lady boss simply won't give in. To me, you already tried very hard, but her NO means NO
340926.gif
. So I gave up.

After that, I was feeling even more angry and indignant after you told me Jean's BS is in IMM, ie, a local BS and not a BS in Johor. It was only then I realised I was being cheated by more than half. (Jean's 4R @ $5 each as compared to my 3R @ $12/each.)

Moreover, the more i look at the pictures, the $12 each pictures, they are actually 3R, and after minusing the 1-cm thick white border, the pics only left 2.5R.

hehehe. we brainstorm ideas together lah.

chipdale, ur list very comprehensive. i actually forgot a few things in the list. think that is about all that we need to do bah. i dun hv more in my list leh.
anyway, for wedding shoes, i bought it from Isetan wisma. jus happen to go shopping n found it. but for me i dun really place alot of emphasis on shoes. cos i think with the gown cant really see. maybe for EG or CS or kwa will need to get a better pair of shoes.

btw, will u all be wearing kwa? match wat shoes nice huh?

Hello Adeline! I just finished my photo selection, though it didn't turn out as smooth.

The pictures were ok, but several ideas that we specifically wanted and showed the photog the printouts, he couldn't capture the feel or image.

, Other than that, overall the pictures were quite ok.

Lipstar,
I didnt try tat hard lah...
Frankly speaking, some of the unselcted pic r quite nice but I kept quiet...
cos no point asking U to top up when yr objective is to cut pic & save $$$.
Wat's more, the PG only mgt to capture the "motion" but not the "emotion"
N I hate tat lady boss..dun want to let her earn the $$...
heheeee...I know I m bad...
jux tat I cant stand her...
maybe cos I m a service-oriented pax...
BS is a service industry..N I expect service fr them. Not pushing me thousand kms away...
Its worst than my ex-BS.

N U also very funny...saying 3R becomes 2.5R

4get to add few more complaints..
Ooopssss...
Did they makeup on yr FH? I know yr FH is dark..but the dark circles r darker..
Also, remember to chk the album with yr proofs.
CHECK ONE BY ONE.
ensure its the same pic..
also any color chg
most importantly, make sure they ve touch up.

Lipstar,
I told my FH abt yr pic selection last night...
He "scolds" me for being too meddlesome..
saying yr FH keeps quiet..N y I talk so much.
I also understand tat..tats y I keep quiet after the 1st try.

I also knows that I cant compare yr BS with mine...cos mine is super ex BS. maybe tats y service is better...In the end, I also didnt cut much..like wat I said b4, I must be crazy (not that its well-taken, somehow we jux choose N even not tat nice one also choose..my FH said it looks not bad & natural while I said I looked awful. But we still choose. My PG knows how to hide my flaws..even though still can see lah..at least not obvious...U know lah..fat with wrinkles & bunny teeth + not so big eyes..my PG asked the MUA to touch up my eyes a few times during PS..plus face uneven...anyway I jux follow their instructions...)....N I also 4get to bargain during the top up as they auto gimme disc.
Comes to think of it...its not enough...I shld bargain more...but its too late...*sigh...
During my pic selection is quite enjoyable...very relax...cos the asst also cut the pic for us...she said...this 1 I know U definetly dun want...its like they will help U to choose the pic...of cos we also c at the same time...
Gt gd & bad too...
but now the pic selection is over for me..
now can only wait for my thk U cards.

Oops..think I talk too much..but I dun want to del..hheee

Hi Bride,
Remembered you from the Chris Ling thread when you asked about the Herworld PS package won. I have also met up with them and Eugene will be my photographer. Who's yours? Actually, I am still considering whether I should go for this PS cause' already have another PS by GHA and moreover have to provide own transport and MUA for the Chris Ling outdoor shoot.

Angeldust,
Aranus is one of my shortlist IDs which I saw in one of the home mags. Stressed about sourcing for a sutable ID now. Yours all renovated already? Lucky you. Is Aranus' workmanship and ID skills commendable? Excited but also very stressful to manage the house renos and prepare for wedding at the same time.

Hubby & i will only have helpers in e evening. Still thinking of hw much to give.

Most importantly, e amt should not strain ur budget & is enough to cover their transport & their time..

Its e thought that counts dear, not e amt...

<font color="0000ff">hi bliz, yup! I will be with Eugene too! We decided not to do PS initially so for us, this is a bonus. As for your PS with GHA, I heard they charge $80 per extra photo? Think of it this way. I'm assuming you'll want more than what GHA's package can give you right? So Eugene's will be a "top up" and all you have to do is to pay for your own MUA which will cost maybe... about $300? I'm estimating. Including transport, at most $400. So for 15 8R photos, you paid $400 which is only $27 per photo! The only problem you may have is taking your GHA gowns for Eugene's photoshoot. Can you do that? For me, I'm with Ted Wu so no problem in that area.</font>

Hi Greta,

yes $3K is really very xiong.... e groom actually gave all e $ that is to be given to bride's parents to cover for e "gatecrash" w e help of some cash from his xiong di(s). Both e bride &amp; e groom comes from an average income family but e some of e sisters are from well to do family (maybe thats e market rate to them)... nw my fren &amp; hubby have to save up to give back e $ tat e xiong di(s) though e xiong di(s) are not asking back from them but they feel pai seh bout it.

Hazel: It's really ok.

Anyway, I just called my BS. The person on the other line said they will return me the proofs of those 28 pics I selected for the 15R. It is also stated in my receipt that I will get back a CD Rom.

Yeah, my BS doesn't put emphasis on customer service at all. She didn't help us choose, give us comments, and was quite rude also. After she passed me the stack of pics, she told me to choose the big ones first, then choose the small ones (60 4R to distribute to family &amp; friends). I thought the big ones and small ones are all different pictures. Later she told me "No, the 60 4R pics are to be selected from the pics you have already selected from the big pics", ie, repeated designs. And somemore must add in "just now I already told you mah" with a sarcastic laughter. Sigh...

Then she talked on her cellphone lah, chat to other people lah.. etc.

Hazel: Yah, the make up artist got put make up on HB. I didn't notice his dark eye circles... most probably because I was too narcissistically admiring myself.

Lipstar,
Is the 60 4R all the same design?
Mine is called the Thank U cards....
which I intend to send out with invitation cards.
cos I saw my frenz give to the guests during banquet...most of them jux leave it on the table...very heartpain..
Now I sent it together...if they throw away, I also ok...at least I didnt c it..

My Thank U cards r selected fr the 100 pic that we selected fr 15R...

Anyway, now yr selection is over...
so, jux think of the album now...
when would U be getting it?

Okie Girls, here's my 2 cents worth.

Lipstar, I got your SMSes last night. Sorry was a bit haphazard but I was reeling from having to put my invites together.

I feel at this point the cost of per photo cannot be undone. Take it as if it were to be an investment of some sort. Something for youto look at and reminisce. But I would strongly suggest that you go back to the BS and put everything in writing. Since you've done your PS, there's really nothing much you can do except exercise your consumer power. You can always write a letter after the wedding and just demand for a refund of certain things that didn't go as stated in the invoice or you'll report. Most will cave in and refund you to a certain extent.

When will you get your CDRom? Can you bring it at our meet on the 10th?

Hazel: The 60 4R pictures got 10 designs, which are from the 28 pictures that I had chosen for the big album.

Idyll: I will get back the CDRom together with the album on 23rd March. When I meet you girls on 10th, I can bring along the 19 4R pics. (rejected ones, just buy for keepsake)

Hi belle baby squid
yeah 3k is defintely off our budget.
I probably be having abt 4-6 jiemeis and hubby's xiong dis around that number too.We haven't decide abt the exact amt but likely to prepare 3 different anqpow for the jiemeis to choose...$228,$288 and $348. I think I can rest assured jiemeis won't give hubby and xiong di tummy probs cos all are nurses

sad.gif

hi babysquid &amp; peggy,

tks for ur tips! i gather as much its ard that amt not having too many jiemei if not then the total amt will hv to be split among so many of them too. Wah peggy all nurses? hehe i m sure they wont tekan ur hubby n his bros till peng san lah. i m also goin to stress to my jiemeis..no matter how wild they can get, play to a certain limit cos no play no fun too. but i dun agree to feeding the guys 'poison' to make them suffer lah..very bad!

I m also tryin to get flowers to do my corsages n ang bao box.i m nuts abt colour coordination..so tryin really hard to visualise at the shop when i buy my ribbons n stuff. really headache dun wanna buy the wrong colour combination! besides these..i m doin nothing ley. invites printed but not done so will take my time to write nicely lah

Hi Ebell,
For 200pcs of cards, it's more worth it to go to the printer cos they charge flat fee for 200 or 300set. Then u and FH can save the time to do other stuff. Anyway, I'm using the NJstar chinese software for the words. I haven't chose verse yet...will think about it. How much is the flea market selling the wrist corsages? Yr angpow box quite reasonable.

Hi bbsquid,
I got $50 angpow for helping my future BIL for his wedding dinner reception table only. For those jiemei/xiongdi doing the full day thingy, i suppose they would get more.

Hi Peggy,
Try asking your family to help you out on the guest list. R u inviting more relatives or frens? AP box can buy off the shelf if no time. It's gd that yr hubby is helping out. I take part-time course b4 with 3-4 concurrent projects so i can understand. Can try to start doing/finish the projects soonest possible so as it get if off your mind rather than hanging in the air?

welcome meowysp!!

count, my course was for the couples getting married. it thought us about how we muz communicate with partner and to have romance after marriage and having children. they taught husbands to love their wives even if they have all the saying at home. they are "head of the house". haahaa... and they taught wives to submit to husbands even if the husbands are wrong, and so on. ^_^

summer, i think rom website has some info on the courses. if you are interested you can go and check it out.

happy holiday!!

Hi gals
have you gals decided on your GDL day yet?...Care to share what are the things you gals are preparing?

hi ebell
yeah 200pcs better go to printer...mine's only 100pcs at abt $130 at t'dragon....saves alot of trouble and time and they have all types of inserts color and wordings (english and chinese) for you to chose from.....yeah how much is the corasages....any flea market this weekend? $8.9 for angpow box is very reasonable considering it's already decorated.

Hi greta
thanx for the advice.....
my side's guest are more or less finalised...family gonna ask the relatives for their proper names to be wriiten on the invites...it's 60% family and 40% frens....
yeah I can plan my projects early but the prob are most are based on grp work and quite alien topics that we have to site through lectures and tutorials before knowing exactly what is expected to proceed with the project....but I'm glad my grp mates are very on the ball so we started meeting and planning already

Anyway, FIL is relatively reputable.

I got to pia... if not, sure die... now doing Performance Management for the whole plant in SIngapore, and also budgeting for Q1 and Q2. No time... Maybe because now I am on the verge of slimming, thats y resistance low... Hehe!!! Btw, total I lost about 11 kgs liao.

hi purple, u are welcome. feel free to call him up but dun feel obligated cos he knows i can reco but not confirmed sure my frens will get him one.

hi blitz, darren was previously from another ID firm. I was one of his last customers when he went over to Aranus. but nonetheless he did a great job in getting my place done up. I only had to visit once a week and also he did the coodination for my window contractor which i got from elsewhere. all i did was to give him my window contractor no. and he did everything.

panda!! congrats!!!
