would u be ordering in large qty? anyway have u consider to get from malaysia?? prices are cheaper also.. initially i planned to get from malaysia since my colleague cum friend is living in JB so she can bring me ard... but eventually my parents' requirement for the GDL is quite linear.. and she does not request for alot boxes of GDL cakes for my side.. the most she would want will not be more den 40 boxes lor...
hi Twinkle Star,
the terms that are to be used for the invitation card are rather complicating.. haha..
for my hubby and me we both have an elder brother and we are the youngest in the family (both side 2 children)... and tat time when deciding on the template, we were discussing whether to use "younger" or "youngest".. so in the end we decided on "younger" cos we feel like tat "youngest" seem like there are more den 2 children.. hahaha...
and in chinese version it will be "å¹¼ç”·" and "å¹¼å¥³"...
sher... u already order ur xi bing? I haven got mine... in front u already done quite abit.. for mi really alot undone... I meeting the printer guy this sat for inserts.. den next week to view my photos.. other den dat not done.. ang bao box, corsages n etc...
jesdreamz.. pine garden only haf traditional pastry type???
mei, i also agree with kaye not to get preggy too late.. me also thinking of starting next yr.. hee.. u can talk to your hubby first coz like wat u say better not be too stress during ur pregnancy.. hee.. for your house, i guess let nature take its course.. u can go see see look look..and if the place is right and price is reasonable.. no rush to get it coz it is not as if u got no place to stay.. just got to bear with the Dowages.. also i feel that if u get preggy, maybe the Dowages will treat u better.. hee.. must be positive ya.. hee..
kaye, fast hor.. six weeks more can see ur princess le.. hee.. in the mean time with the new colleaugue coming in to help u, probably u can be abit relex with ur work.. then not too stress.. hee..
today got cake baking.. looking forward to the class... hee..
piglet, Dowagess will control every aspect of how I want to handle my child, that's why it's really putting me off.. but I'll discuss with my hubby regarding this issue.
I really think Dowagess is a terrible person... her actions don't mirror her words. Remember on Monday evening, she told my hubby she wants interaction with me... I would understand that it means she wants to have a good relationship with me. But just barely one day after she said those words, yesterday evening, she knocked on our room door & gave my hubby a glass of orange juice. Again, like the barley issue, I am not hard up for her juice, but her intentions.... I really doubt it.
I am in the midst of documenting a list of the terrible things she has done to me for record purposes.. in case anything crops up, I'm going to shove this list in her face & let her read it herself.
Hi HedgeHog (por)
I agree with u lor..it is rather complicating. Me Being the eldest with a younger brother, and my hubby only son with one elder & younger sis. We are so confused by the chinese term. Cannot put eldest daugter..and eldest son mah.So i went to the printer and ask for their advise..we dun even know how to put. Haha
So they advise us in correct chinese terms, cos we are only son and daugter, so in a poliet addressing is å°å„¿(their Son) & å°å¥³ (their daughter). So we think YA HOR..and very approriate. Haha..so ladies just go to printer & they will advise u accordingly so dun have to worry one lor. They are experience man. hehee
Ladies, i order my cakes from Pine garden. You may contact the following person for quotation.

Piglet, yalor... Very fast and i can get to see my little princess liao... My new colleague is coming in tomorrow and my boss is asking me to draft a list of items (training schedule) for the new colleague! I almost fainted!
Mei, the dowagess really one kind. She seems like those terrible MIL from those old old Cantonese movies. Nevermind, just endure and get on with your house hunting!
kaye, i agree.. some of my friends are those happy-go-lucky type and their child is really cheerful, friendly, not crying type etc. I love one of my HMT's friend's son. Always smiling and make my day. Really want to kidnap him home whenever i see him. haha
Wah, mei. ur MIL really show attitude so OBVIOUSLY! She did not even care about your feeling. Biangz.... She is the one who doesn't want to try bring you into the family. pray that you can have your house soon and leave the horrible place
Actually I thought about it.. why we can't get along is also because my character & hers are totally different. Sometimes, people will tell me, just give in but for me, I can't put on a fake front & give in to her, I just feel it's against my conscience to do so. I guess that's why we have all these conflicts now.
kaye & jhoo, actually I am used to her nonsense already, that's why never even got angry yesterday, just feel she is a terrible woman that's all. Anyway, my hubby is very sweet, yesterday I was in the shower when she gave him the juice, after he took it from her, he came & showed me the glass & said to me 'Guess what I got?', then he proceeded to pour the juice into the toilet bowl & flush it away. I feel very happy that he can see for himself what she is doing, that is more important than anything else.
jazol, don't fret too much, since you are trying, just let nature take its course. I have a friend who charts her fertile period & went on a mini vacation to bintan with her hubby & she succeeded. Maybe you can take a mini vacation with your hubby if both of you are stressed.
Yes, I agree that my hubby's actions are really nice... so I feel very contented & happy.. hee.
piglet, yeah.. tell us what cake you baked today ok.. then we can imagine & drool...
kaye/ mei, we hv been goin on trips bt on church conf and mission trip. prob will be planning for one on our 1 yr anniversary. in fact i m ok wif it jus tat my MIL kept stressing why no bb yet. thks for ur encouragement.

Sher, no worries lah, you should be able to finish up all the things fast. I must also speed up in clearing my room, if not I think the photographer will faint upon seeing my room.
And gotta waste money on buying 2 sets of bedframes & mattress. The fengshui master said since my house will not be ready on my AD, I gotta do another "an chuang" when I move into my house. *faint*
my parents only got my elder brother and me.. so is 1 guy 1 gal... as for my hubby, he got 1 elder brother and himself only... so we use "å¹¼ç”·" and "å¹¼å¥³" and in English version is their younger son & younger daughter..
My lovenest also will not be ready on my AD.. so i am wondering shall be need to do the "an chuang" anot leh.. very fan ar... somemore also dunno wat to buy in order to do the "ab chuang" in my IL's hse... plus my hubby's room is quite packed liao lor... and those cabinets are fixed to the wall type lor.. cannot remove.. so there is 1 and only 1 location to place the bed and the maximum queen size without bed frames..
got suggestion what to buy for "an chuang" and how shall i do for my situation??
haiz.. really and very fan... sobs..
also lor... now is less than 2 mths yet i still pending alot of things to do.. best is.. i haben even taken my PS... gals.. dun be shocked.. sobs sobs...
Me is in the same situation as you all too. Lovenest will not be ready at all, and had to stay put at my MIL's place for the time being. Hubby's room is also quite packed and we dun noe how to 'dispose' the single bed he has currently. The bed still look gd.
My FIL said can do without "an chuang". Shld only do it when our lovenest is ready. They're open-minded folks though. But my parents find it not very appropriate.. So me oso headache..
if ur AD is in the 1st week of Nov den think is better to send out latest by next week bah... the latest lastest must be by 1st week of Oct... cos u still need time for the RSVP, finalise the name list and seating arrangemnet... if ur AD is end of Nov, it is still better to send out the invitation not later den 2nd week of Oct bah... this is just my estimation.. heez..
me also haben send out the invitation altot my AD is on the 2nd week of Nov.. waiting to collect my inserts this week.. after tat den gotta tie the gold strings and write the names.. den send out the invitation... hope to get this done by end of next week..
we same same situation lor... the prob is my hubby's room nth can be cleared to free the spaces... cos the cabinets and cupbroads are MTM and mounted to the wall type lor... haiz..
den my ILs also din mention abt the "an chuang" lor.. and my mum was asking me whether i got "an chuang" not.. i also dunno how to ans.. and my colleagues said at least must "yi shi yi shi" do the "an chuang" lor... sibei fan and headache now ar...
SiriusPink, yah hopefully can finish everything asap. i din even bother to clear my room ah..hahaha rubbish everyware...gua gua gua. maybe nx mth then see hw lah hor? haha
hedgedog, when's your AD? maybe try to settle PS, printing of cards first...schedule aldy? the rest like angpow box, corsages can later then buy/diy. Jiayou k!! we try nt to be too stressed up...gt to try enjoy the whole process..hee=)
HedgeHog & Baby2Luv : Yeah, the current bedframe & mattress is still consider quite new cos only bought last year. I mean its a waste of money to throw both away right? The rest of the rooms in my bf's house already packed with beds & other stuffs. I was thinking can I just sui bian buy a bedframe & mattress for single size just for the sake of "an chuang" in my IL's place.
The fengshui master was telling me "oh........of course you definitely need to "an chuang" 2 times"
Sher: Mine's like rubbish dump liao, still dun clear I think no need to get married liao, haha! And I have no idea am I going to be in charge of the GDL stuffs too.
my AD is on 11/11.. the PS has been scheduled liao.. will be next week friday.. as for the inserts printing for my invitation cards is currently in progress and shall be able to collect them by end of this week lor.. den still gotta buy the gold strings for tieing the inserts with the cards.. as for the rest like angpow box, corsages, etc still haben yet...
last sunday just spent 1/2 day to deco my AD heels... hahaha... i have posted my AD heels collection in my multiply..
all of us gotta jia you.. try not to stress but ended up also stress... haha...
if i got "an chuang" for my ILs' hse den i also gotta do it twice... haiz.. as i said.. my hb's room cannot fit in the bedframe.. and 1 thing is tat when buy new bed and before "an chuang" dunno he can slp on the new bed not.. if cannot den dunno where he suppose to slp liao wor..
haha.. my room also like rubbish dump ar... and maybe got spider web liao lor... haha.. so when is ur GDL? mine is on 27/10 lor... gotta ask my mum for the list of GDL things she requested from my hb's side liao since both sides' parents already met and discussed...
Hope everyone is doing fine...not too stressed out i hope. My wedding is exactly 1 month away and every time i think of that my heart suddenly beats very fast.
Actually after marriage me and my hubby's lives won't really change much cos we r already living together. A sort of formality i guess...yet we r getting so 'kan-cheong' n spending so much money on it. Grrr...
Anyway, also wanted to share some pics of what i've done so far.
I'm gonna have a mini candy buffet at the dinner so my guests can have something other than nuts to munch on during the cocktail hour. I also love eating sweets myself la! Getting color co-ordinated sweets is not too easy in s'pore...they have so many nice ones on these overseas websites, but the shipping itself costs more than the candy!eee. Hopefully I can gather enough by then.
I also included a pic of my ang-pao box. This was provided by my venue but i added some extra decor to match my theme. On top of it is my cake topper that i made myself
Very bling...very me
i'm so glad my sis-in-law offered to bake my wedding cup-cake tiers..saved a bundle there n its more special to us too. i'll add a pic after the wedding. Must show off her hard work. 100 cup-cakes...n shes 6 mths pregnant too!
Last pic is my flower centerpiece mock-up that my florist did for me. Quite nice i think...though i couldn't really find the exact color of the flowers i wanted. My florist is JM florist, the lady in charge, Dolly is nice...shes gonna do more mock-ups for me nearer the date. Give me some peace of mind. I had a nightmare that on my wedding day the flowers were all wrong n totally gross...this wedding thing is really getting to me man...
what if i am the eldest daughter and only have a younger brother, so am i called the "zhang2å¥³" and my hubby being the youngest son (only got 1 more elder brother) called å¹¼ç”·? Quite confused. Going to the printer today ha
