crown> Mmm... u can ask for recommendation.. or u can just drink and taste for urself..
generally the price we are getting is about $16-$17 per bottle...that range is good enough for Banquet la...unless u have high budget..

Parkers has GST though... but he's giving us $16+GST..so its about $17.12.

B@rworks is $16.80 nett..

But B@rworks wine... abit not to our liking... and only need $50 deposit at B@rworks...

Parkers need 40%... MMm..thats like $400 for what we need... yah...


New Member
mei, I topped up 27 pics ... our PG was the one who did the photo selection with us and he kinda gave us an offer on the pics ... if he stick strictly to the price per photo, it should be $1750+


New Member
SotongLet>> Wah, 1200 can MTM so many things? Can PM me the details of how u go about MTM-ing a gown at low cost..? Not sure if I can afford it, but I was thinking to have another gown for AD to surprise my hubby.. lol.. Somehow feel that after PS, there will be no element of surprise when hubby come and jie1 me on AD le.. haha...


New Member

New Member
hi ladies, well, for me, we did not have alot of time for the outdoor shooting. Only managed to go 3 places. We did not have many places in mind to go too. Just went to the places that my PG suggested but we did counter-proposed to his ideas. He knows where is the best place for PS than we do. We spent more time in the studio than outdoor.

We went to Botanic Gdn (Big Waterfall), Hort Park and Sentosa (beach scenary).

Hi Chimes, wow you topped up another 27 photos? How many photos does your package originally consists of? Curious..


New Member

Hi chimes.. dat's wat i tot too.. but my photographer told me to negotiate with his boss.. haiz..

New Member
ray > winebos no good ah? santa helena chilean wine. wine tasting means what? mean we buy one bottle to try? or we pay by per glass?

nubra - that time they say got an outlet at suntec? is it still there? or only choice is to buy online? good to use? looks like many types, nubra and nubra feather lite?
I'm not studying part-time.

Haha I won't pull hair lah even if AD is in Sept. Got so much helpful info I can refer to at this forum about the tasks. When my MTM EG turned out to be a diasaster, I have to hide wedding from dad, I gain 5kg these months etc, I also never pull hair. If things dun work well, I'll find workarounds, lower my expectations, close 1 eye to them. Wedding is supposed to be a 1-day happy event, it's not worth killing ourselves over it!
Don't u realise that some of our stresses are actually caused by our expectations?

Guess I'll only pull hair if Bf loses another >20K in stocks again or he delays things for a few months again *touch wood* :p

Yes I'm working as a teacher. Students are basically behaving like customers nowadays. In front of my colleagues, I always called my school as "Childcare centre" LOL.
Ah Net,
U must learn to relax yourself. I notice that you are worrying a lot more nowadays. What things did u observe about your body that made u suspect that u had illness?

Stress will make u tired, lower your immune system n feel unwell one.
We don't have to stick to only 1 outing. U gals can go ahead with any of below outings as long as u gals are agreeable.

jia you to all upcoming ones... expect the unexpected. 2 things:

1. forgot wedding bands
2. forgot can-can, acc and veil.
Had to rush home to take! otherwise it is fun and i have upload some pics at my multiply taken by friends. The actual pic only arrive few weeks later in dvd...

Bride crashing was fun, as hubby got friend to pose as policeman knocking at our door, say we are too noisy. Almost the door for him to let him in, till we saw no nametag.

Have loads of fun ahead!


New Member
hehe.. yah loh.. how nice if you can join us!! hehee.. =)

no worries... =) i dont like to pay by instalments but nvm lah.. i also worried about financial but i think suan le.. we cannot dictate how much $ people will give us for the dinner.. now think so much also useless.. -_- just enjoy the process k!


New Member
green>must learn from you. You are always so cool.

Fanny>winebos is ok lah. Best for you to go down, speak to them, try out the wines and decide yourself what you want. Everyone has different expectations and different needs. The wine tasting depends. Winebos and B@rworks give free wine tasting but some places you need to pay for the bottle.

I understand nubra featherlite is lighter than the original nubra.


New Member
Woo... wedding checklist, I still haven't got the time to do it. Sigh... so tied up in the reno stuff that I got to put wedding prep on hold.


New Member
msbean, for me, i recomm fancl tense up ex. it's really good for me, i can see the radiance on my face... as for birds' nest, it's also good, jus dat eat long term den can see results. but i think i stil prefer fancl tense up now. i also recomm SK2 facial essence... haha. and it's eye mask. very good. SK2 facial mask i find ok only, but i thumbs up for the eye mask.


New Member
nelle>> you doing reno oso? Who's your ID? My reno gonna start soon too. May be selecting the tiles this sat. Hoping to start reno on 30th Jul.

LSnTYL>> I'm a jap food lover oso. Got quite a few jap restaurants that I love. Food is really nice there.

fiona>> Good luck to MTMing your gown. You are a lucky gal to have your hubby doing the wedding prep. For me, I do 95% of the work for wedding, hse hunting and hse reno. Really tiring considering I have to study and travel for biz.


New Member
green, i also dunno whether im too stressed or too depressed or wat leh....

my colleagues say mayb i too stressed up with the wedding prep (cos most of the stuff is i do one, i jus delegate work to my bf), dat's y im stressed or depressed without me even realising it.

or maybe it's the evening gown. maybe it's the whole prep thingy. i also dunno.

or mayb my work too stressed until i dun realise dat im feeling stressed.

i only knw dat i dun have ideas like jumping down or slashing wrist, so i guess im nt dat depressed?


New Member
Hi Hi ladies,
Great 2 see all of u all again...even though we never meet, guess e similar experiences in wedding planning has opened e doorway 4 more sharing n in a way make friends too.

Hi Berry, Colt, Crispy and M, glad to hear u all adjusting well in ur marriage.
Still waiting 4 my AD fotoz in great anticipation as my AD PG qite cool in his shots...i uploaded my wedding album in e multiply site.
Will update all once e rest r done...tempted to include e video highlights but only allow 100 MB for 10 mins. More than tat muz PAP^ (pay n pay)...

As 4 M's comments, i do tink of doing it laboriously in my blog, but i simply too tired to add all AD details inside e blog.

Love xlb did a polished job...i guess i getting old liao so fingers a bit crinky...qite easy to get in multiply site. Moreover, this site allows fotoz 2 b uploaded easily, taz why we prefer to load our fotoz up.

As 4 ur bf n his gal who r prospective customers in Sattine, i believe itz an adjustment phase. Once they sieve out all e teething issues, hopefully they can regain e customers' confidence.

Remind them NEVER assume things in BRIDAL svc. Always ask, clarify n expect terms in black n white. Some couples actually feel down cos they get ripped off in e preparation...

Hmmm...since we oredi married n waiting to get our hands on e fotoz...mayb we can share a little bit of ourselves...

E.g. Is married life beri different frm wat u envisage?

For me, I was severely home sick in e initial month...getting better now..

Share share k...

4 those eager to see my AD fotoz, e PG has made use of his blog n did a segment of us...

Just go to http://kenteophoto.com

E section where u see a married couple in church (pix w inverted u arch above; fotoz orangie red tone...taz us...follow e comments where u see

'A simple slideshow - my humble interpretation of the simple love' and there will b a slideshow of us.



New Member
sorry M,
I referring to ur bro n his gal...apologies.

E PG i engage in u may not hav heard of him but he does hav a wealth of experience in foto journalistic shooting. He promotes qite extensively in Googles...

If u like his style, feel free 2 recommend him 2 ur galfrienz...he's qite sincere n professional in his delivery. A plus pt, a rather tall guy too!

Oops... u all decide his skills lah. ;)


New Member
as our resident shopping queen, you must maintain reputation lah, that's why topping up photos also must top up lots, cos it's just like shopping!
;) but then i think you didnt have much choice, seeing your unselected ones were so nice liao, those selected ones sure super mei lor, so must top up lor.

bargain hard, sure you gonna top up lots too, cos ya gonna have beautiful pics!!! your BS is....?

your FH do everything? LUCKY gal! so impressed with your FH.
my FH normal response is anything also can.

kyoto is really enjoyable.
the temples, the palace, the gardens...
the zen temple was REALLY peaceful.
imagine just some stones in a formation, i was so cynical and skeptical, but when i sat down,
POOF! instant deep peace.
i also cant explain.

there's a cheap walking tour, i think it's called jonny's walking tour, kyoto. can check it out.

gion is shiok for the FOOD and you can catch sight of maikos passing thru.

from kyoto, can easily take day trips to nara and himeji. 2 diff places with diff attractions.
so 2 diff day trips lah.

and must must must try onsen.
north of kyoto have some outdoor ones, not very touristy.
i havent been to those, but i did some hiking in the area of the onsen, gorgeous man. and the FOOD.
we ate on top of a river on bamboo 'rafts' attached to the banks and it was just simple fish from the river. but super WOW.

i did go to one of the oldest onsen in japan (they claim), that's in shikoku, the island below honshu. it's in dogo. and i was so freaked out at being naked in front of strange pple, but man, the relaxation is totally worth and after a while, i dun care how many strangers around. lol.


New Member
you're cool.... sometimes i can think tat way, but most of the times i would think of the bad side. It's always the money issue, and my fh likes to drag stuffs. I give up liao, he wan to do he do, if dun do i at most dun move in.

how much is the fancl tense up ex? is to drink weekly?


New Member
Leely, need to see the design and materials such as lace cloth, silk, organza etc and additions such as normal beadings, crystal beadings, lace applique (or watever it is spelt.) This will add on to the cost of making a gown. You can pm me the amount u are willing to spend the materials u wan and the design u going for. I can advise u better like tat

Eunice, yeah making my own pillow. I wanted some thing of satin roses, with crystals and matted white surface. Cannot find the size i like or it is too ex loh.

flora actually we have alot of time, just wanna do some stuff first so that we will not feel so rush when the time gets nearer.
