strawclare> we bought the house without knowing the actual valuation. we bought it based on an assumption that the valuation is probably at a certain price. This valuation is the owner's first valuation and he only just received the report yesterday. it is a calculated low-risk (to us) bet that has turned out well.


New Member
My auntie is also doing mani/pedi services at her house at Khatib, her house is near the NTUC. She charges $30 for mani and pedi. If buy set of 5, she gives 10 nailarts for free.

you can click n view other wrist corsages in this website as well.

you can email or msn her at [email protected]


New Member
Hi qunqun,

New Member

New Member
hi jule,

the corsages very nice.. where in bangkok did u got them from?? maybe can get my friend to get them for me too.. how much??


New Member
wow really alot of wrist corsages..
so many until i dunno which to choose..
anyone wan to bulk purchase? mayb can check if got cheaper price?


New Member
hi jule, your corsages are very nice & special. good buy! my friend told me that there are many nice stuff for wedding in bangkok, like flower girl dress, wedding favour etc. Guess it must have been a fruitful trip for you =P wanted to go with my friend in early May but my fiance say going to get marry should save $$ so don't want me to go sigh...

hi r&j, i stay near IMM but the rest of my mother side relative all stay in cck. i used to stay with my granny in cck when i was younger so very familiar with cck.

hi berry_egg, me just went with my mom, aunt & granny to buy the "gold" during mother's day. they kept nagging at me to go and buy with them. think they are more excited than me too haha. and they insist on buying yellow gold but in the end we bought those with mixture of yellow & white gold. now i wonder what to do with these yellow gold jewellery in future. don't think i will ever wear them again after wedding haha.

for the corsages, i ordered one from the "Brides" series and others the normal not so elaborate ones. mine is kinda custom made. I chose the style I like from the website and told the person exactly what I want. e.g the mixture of ribbon colours etc. each one is about $6, the "Brides" series is about $7 if I didn't remember wrongly. If you order more there will be discount. to order, just email [email protected] / [email protected] and discuss with them the item and price. after the order is confirmed, transfer the money to them and a few weeks later the corsages will be delivered to ur place.

initially thot of making myself but too busy already so lazy haha. my friend's sis was not working before her wedding and she did everything herself from wrist corsages, ang pow box, ring pillow etc. how i wish i have the time too. it would be so fun! s'rene & berry_egg have fun making ur corsages. do let us see when they r ready ;) usually handicraft shop would have all the stuff u need to buy. but not sure exactly where got. maybe s'rene can advise.

Hi, I'm also a jan bride, I'm having my 1st child, 21 weeks pregnant, I got some questions.
Have u all feel the kick from the bb, i had some strange feeling. Feeling was like when u press hard on ur chest and feel the heart beat. is that the kicking from the bb, however everytime i had the feeling, i place my hand at the tummy, it will gone, is it the kicking of the bb or just some gas in my tummy?


r&j, I bought them from Sampeng Lane in Chinatown, one of the stalls.

qunqun, it was an impromptu trip with my cousin. Went only 3 days, did buy some things like shoes and flower girl dress.

Enuice> Hmm,,, its a kinda of tone for red,, but its not exactly those bright color... Will try to upload some pics for u to see when the gown is ready... Mine is a bustler... so no bareback.. moreover, too fat to wear one.. haha...


New Member

so carol's one is still cheaper.

u can ask carol through msn or email if got bulk discount or not... cos i order 6 pcs....she charge me $6.50 per pc.

if register mail have to pay $3.50 for postage..but i choose to self collect as her place is in ang mo kio...near to my neighourhood.

note in her email, she wrote lead time may take up to 4 weeks...

so order early.


New Member

in fact cos i saw the white small rose in this picture, that why i decide to put it to the 3 pink organza roses that i have initially...so keep emailing carol n she very nice...she keep amending the design that i want till i am satisifed.

New Member
Hi qunqun, I go a shop on Arab street. They have fabulous stuff there. First time I see rolls of ribbons with sequins already sewn on. And prices start from $2/metre. The more elaborate, the more expensive


New Member
hey all,
what wine is good? i really don't know. don't know how to appreciate wine. leaving to my fh and ILs to decide. since my ILs paying for them, or so i think =)

when are u gg to bali? have fun! dinner by the beach sounds romantic. enjoy! can imagine gg there with a good book and tanning on the beach. think u can have massage on the beach. very relaxing... but i've never been. just heard of it from friends. =)

so is someone planning for the next gathering already? maybe can meet at some games cafe. can chit chat, eat n play games. =) maybe the FHs can come along too. the more the merrier. lol..

sorry. i have no contacts for flowers. mine's provided by hotel n flyer.

anyone has contact for car rental? maybe for lexus or BMW for actual day. and florist for car deco too.

2 more weeks before fh is officially on holz. can't wait! can finally do up our lovenest. and drive in to m'sia for food n shopping. hee...
though i would love to go HK or BKK. but guess not enough time..

have you thought of where to go for PS already? and the props? hairdos? have lotsa rest till your PS. =)


New Member
Rachel: Hehe, I quite like me heels too, though a little sad I can't wear with the EG...But don't worry, you'll find a pair you really like too! And when you do, rmb to upload the photos! And sure, upload the photos for the gown too!! :D

LingLing: What kind of shoes are you looking for and what is your budget? Someone told me Leaping Lizard is a favourite place to get wedding shoes? http://woyaojiehunle.blogspot.com/2007/09/bridal-footwear.html suggests some sources for wedding shoes. Don't know if it'll be useful for you!


New Member
Kai & Ling> good for u!

crown> focal ad not that cheap too...my Venue deals with focal ad.. hehe.. :p we didnt really check out their prices though. :p

fortunemew> its nearer to Yishun MRT.. Its at Blk 293.. Yup.. PM me can? I'll give u her number. Better to make appt..else she'll go home early.
Hahah.. she works alone.. so no customers then she'll go home one.. :p

neko>Mani with nail art.. no Pedi la.. Pedi is already $30 liaoz.. haha.. u mean u can get cheaper than these lobang??
I think usually its the nail art that costs more... for Esther.. her nail art are reasonably priced.

I love WROSE600. I'll need 12! can ask if got cheaper??? anyone else wants the same as well? :p

morning ladies..

i went for the ISETAN sale on thur and got a mattress guard at $40.. think that was quite a sale given that usu price is $79. anyway, ISETAN was really crowded. was quite a "warm-up" for GSS..;p

anyone of u bought bedsheets yet? was looking at some on display at ISETAN.. it was so ex! even with the sale, a set of nice comfy ones cost more than $200! so girls, rem to budget for bedsheets..

went for 1st fitting with mum yesterday (FH on MC). will post it on multiply in a while..

New Member
Eunice> Did you put the crystals yourself? Hush puppies doesn't come across as a brand that has bling bling shoes.. haha..

Anyway, do you all use Multiply? I just signed up.. I figure we're all ard the stage of choosing our gowns and having our PS, it'll be nice to share our photos to see what each others' gowns look like.. (and we probably don't want to post photos of our face on the forum ^_^).. If you have a multiply account, how about posting it here and we'll just add each other?

My multiply account is chrysalids18.

fiancee and I went down today to Clarity, shortlisted wb00189 and wb00190, wb 00283 and wb00284. Not too adventurous I guess. We tried a lot of funky designs, like those 2 pairs best. By the way, I said I was referred by lynn. haha. she asked if she's VIP. she then gave me the benefit of the doubt. =P yeah. but the price is good.


New Member
Hello all July BTBs! Im new to this thread!
Are you all feeling stressed or cool? Cause I am so stressed that I can almost feel my heart beat stop.
Anyone got good florist to recommend?
Anyone got contacts for caricature?

hey ladies,
went katong mall today. thought the vhive mega store will be huge. but such a disappointment. think ikea also better than that. can skip katong mall if you're ever planning to take a look. lex is right. lol..

went furniture mall too. saw a bedframe. quite modern and neat design. $1280. initially wanted to get a $250 one since only for temp use. now thinking if should get the $1280 one...
basically the bedframe is the only item that caught our eyes today. tmr gg to a family friend's shop to look see. hope can get something decent.

yrs ago i thought of blood donation. but afraid of pain. even blood test also i'm scared. i'm so afraid of pain i was telling fh i will die of labour pain. lol..

i think bedsheet can get from robinsons. last dec bought 2 sets when there was sale. 400+ tc. only $300+.

anyone organising the next gathering do keep me updated! thanks!
