Hee, I'm your opposite, Ivy. Just had a chat with my friend and decided to stick to bird's nest. 1 more bottle of concentrated bird's nest should be just good to my AD. It'll be cheaper than tense up and at least with bird's nest, I know it'll work. Never tried Tense up so not sure how good it'll be. The last time I had meiji collagen, don't see any improvements.

green> huh??? "sexual compatibility is important for marriage life hehe." what does this mean???

Mummy paying for it first... hehe.. :p


New Member
rach>congrats! :D hope you like it!

I've got friends who feel you should have sex before marriage becos you never know how compatible you are sexually mah. Wait marry le, then realise cannot get along in bed, will be too late. Think that's what green means.


New Member
YL> errr.... i think that is just excuse.. when u love a person.... you'll enjoy everything in bed ba... that thinking is what i tot when i was younger...heard from people who said that..and i tot that's the way.... later on i realised and learnt that its not that way la....

those who think that way... are probably finding excuse to indulge in pre-marital sex.... hahaa...

at the end of the day.. when things dont work out...its always the woman at the losing end leh.... nah.....

I dun believe in not getting along in bed... at least.. i think so.... i dunno... after my AD i'll know.. hahahhaha...


New Member

New Member
2500 pics? nec.. that's a lot.. :D do share with me ur pretty photos okie.. :D

i still finished photo selection last week.. going to do some research on honeymoon trip.. :D
Sexual compatibility means that both partners have about the same amount of sex drives. From "Matters of the Heart" threads, you can see that some marriages go into divorce or affairs because one party wants sex often but the other party can't offer it lor. Other cases are the guy suffers from Erectile Dysfunction (penis can't get hard) or gal suffers from Vaginismus (vagina is too tight for penis to enter). I learned a lot from the forum and I clarified my doubts with my friend haha.

"Green < keep thinking abt brad pitt when pregnant? then come out ang mo bb how? whahahahaha... "
Luckily u warned me about it leh, else my bf would faint at the operation room. Okie, I shall think about Wang Li Hong during making love and pregnancy!

There's no best solution. Just choose the one that you feel most comfortable with.
6 months can fly very fast, dun worry. U cannot be so stressed when making baby next time leh.

Me opposite. I'm allergic to pill. Condom actually will reduce the pleasure of the man, as it reduces the penis's sensivity hehe.
Whether to have sex before marriage, this is up to individual's preference and freedom. I have a good friend who is very particular about the capability of the man on bed, so she will definitely test the man out before marriage.


New Member

Rach < no worries la, abt when to have sex... u will do it when both of u are comfortable with each other...

Gals < dun be too worried abt pregnancy and babies now la... focus... take a deep breathe... focus on AD 1st....


New Member
for the 2 of us, we took abt euros 1.6k for abt 2 weeks, just nice.
we didnt shop a lot, stayed in villages and didnt eat at up-market or too touristy places if we can help it.
we paid for some stuff with credit cards, like hotel rooms (when not in the villages) and some touristy restaurants (whole of santorini is touristy!!)
so maybe closer to 2k euros would be safer if you dont manage to find credit card accepting places.
that's greece.
in poland, 2k euros can last nearly a month! (with shopping!)
depends on the part of europe you're visiting.
i've not been to italy, france etc...so other btbs must help out there...

late spring-beginning summer is a good time to go europe.
not too cold, not too hot, wild flowers blooming every where, long daylight hours means more sightseeing and safer.
or late summer-early autumn.
same reasons, but the day gets shorter and dusk comes earlier later into autumn.


New Member
Yes yes yes, tense up works better for me than bird nest too!! But hor, if I take both tense up and bird nest simultaneously, the result is even better!!! But if eating both at the same time, super expensive lor. Haha. Anyway great that they are having discount now. How long is the promotion?

Haha rach, I also planning to buy maxcoil in the end. Now waiting for my fren’s fren to get back to me. Cos he’s the distributor, will get more discount from him than from outside. Is ur maxcoil Athena mattress soft or hard one? Latex or memory foam? Pocketed spring?

Haha….. must test test “merchandise†first mah. Wat if not compatible den how? Cannot refund right? And den must stick to something you not comfortable with. Haha. Ah hem. Hee. But den again, rach is right lor, at the end of the day, whatever happens, girls are always on the losing end. Sad hor. So unfair one. But hor, testing merchandise when planning for marriage might not be such a bad idea afterall.

Congrats, gina, on getting ur own house. Where is it? So shiok to have ur own house. Envy envy.

Hmm, I’ve never read the ‘matters of the heart’ thread. Mayb I should go in and read read. Haha green, u like wang li hon ar? Hee. I agree wif wat Green says: “Condom actually will reduce the pleasure of the man, as it reduces the penis's sensivityâ€. I’ve got a guy fren having this problem now…. He even says sometimes he cant even ‘stand’ properly. And yes, I also agree that actually bedroom activities plays a big part in a happy marriage. Bad sex can also lead to divorce if both parties cant take it.

My fh’s good fren been trying to conceive, still cannot. Tried all ways and methods still cannot.
Btw, from wat I’ve seen and heard, it seems tat guys with sweaty palms and sweaty feet tend to unable to make the wife pregnant. So far, I’ve already seen 3 cases le. And the husbands nw seeing Chinese physicians to cure the inner “heat†or “coldâ€.

For those who watched TXFB, today’s last episode quite nice hor… finally the ah qin realized she’s in the wrong. If not, dunno that horrible man will cheat her until when.

Yah lor, got NATAS, bedlinen and watsons. BEST!! Can stay there the whole day liao. Oh green, sorry ar, I tot expo also got furniture… so I guess only bedlinen. Never lor, go there and see see lor.


New Member
Rach>Actually, I was thinking about what Green said. But couldn't explain it as well as her.
Pre-marital sex is up to the couple.

Green>har? thinking of Wang Lihom when you're making love? Better don't let your FH know. :p Hee. But he is quite cute and v talented.

Sex before marriage is strictly up to the couple bah. I've friends who are particular like yours so they want to make sure both parties will enjoy. I also have friends who prefer to wait. All depends on them. Not for us to judge.


New Member
Nec>oh no. Hope you can lessen the tan lines. The tan lines I got the last time I went Greece took a v long time to go. Did you try moussaka? You must have liked the food. Congrats on getting your proposal. Must have been romantic!


New Member
I also got the Maxcoil Mattress, mine is the latex with pocketted spring wan... We paid abt $1500 for it... damn ex... but hubby like it... but dun ask me how is it hor... cos have not slept on it... delivery is sept b4 an chuan...


New Member
As for me, I cant even decided if I want F&amp;E or package tour.

Would want a more relaxing trip but without destinated shopping trips and so on.


New Member

hahaha... yes..that is after my AD!

Ah Net> check out www.beds.sg urself.. and look for the particular model u want... i shared the site with green..and she told me her fren saw the same model at 30% cheaper...
So... before u buy from ur fren's fren.. go check and see if the site is cheaper or not first..

I'm just getting the super basic one.. $199 only.. we likely gonna just sleep on it for 6 months thereabouts..and by the time we move over to our new home..
hopefully.. we'll get a better mattress.. but i quite like the brand maxcoil.. haha..
so we might just get a better maxcoil..

There're many kind and model ah.... mine is super firm. Considered hard.. not pocketed spring.. just normal spring...
I dunno how good la.. but dun care.. now got bed to lie on can liaoz.... we didnt even want to get it...wanted to sleep on 2 single bed (my current house is single and pull out)
but dad last min then voice out say cannot.. must buy queen bed to sleep...
sigh..soo.. ok lo...
its not latex and not memory form.. hahha... super basic one.. but there's super good maxcoil on the web also..
u go find urself which one u one okay?

huh...??? dunno leh... i believe sex is impt... but... issit really that impt and play such a major role that without it...
marriage cant work? Mmmm.. i really dunno.....
but i believe when 2 persons truly love one another... things can be worked out..
compromise ba... hhhmmm....

Happiness> wah... u bought maxcoil too?? hehehe..which model??? share share leh.. i go see the site got cheaper or not.. hehehe...

Serene - Can't find anything of their website. Do we have to go down personally? I will like to find out more about the no. of days that the course will be conducted, timing &amp; charges? Do you have any rough idea or should I just call them? Hee..

Hi all - I had just finished my PS. Been blessed with extremely good weather. Hope the photos will turn out well. The only thing that bugs me now is that the indoor zhao xing is a bit mature for me.. Other than that, I think I have a really good photographer. Very happy with him.
If anyone likes to view my photo, please let me know. I will need to add u..


New Member
Rach < sleeping on 2 single bed after marraige is a big NO NO... not even if 2 single bed put side by side... old grandmother's myth la, say like that hor, the couple's r/s will also have a "line" (crack)like the bed...thats y parents will always tell u cannot sleep 2 single bed... better listen lor... dun knw true or not but just follow better....
ED must seek specialist opinion...but most men cos of ego will not seek lor... just like my frd's husband...
Ya the mattress we bought paid 100% already... alamak i can't remember which model, the receipt with my hubby... tmr i go my MIL's house i go see see then tell u.... I only remember its latex wan , then got the individual pocket spring thingy... But maxcoil really good har? I hear u say good i abit more "fang xin".... when my hubby choose maxcoil i was a bit skeptical ley...until now also dun knw gd or not but must pay so much... now hear u say good at least fang xin abit...kekekeke

Hi thias, i still hav nt booked my HM pkg. Haiz....can't make up my mind whether to include paris in it or not
I guess u are right. Gp pkg usually more tiring...


New Member
Happiness> hahaa.. its a local brand.. like King Coil is foreign brand.. Max Coil is like another brand loh.. i would say its a normal brand.. just like NTUC.. hahha.. get it? :p

Mmm.. yah... so buy loh... it'll be delivered on Wed..or latest Thur.. which have to be in.. coz Fri is 7th Month liaoz.... Mmmm....

viv> hehehe.. he'll be moving over to my place..

Originally we not doing it.. but just heard... my mum asking my godma... since we buying bed.. looks like we have to 安床.. Hmmm.. i wonder when... keke.. :p
haha.. up to individual..


New Member
Hey keer, I want to seeeee.... add me!

My fitting/trial makeup pics are up too- pretty happy with the results, tonight is my htb's fitting, and then next wed is the PS. Woot, lots of activity! *excited*
I'm moving to bf's place in August, which is lunar 7th mth. I'm thinking of skipping it too LOL. I dun like red Dragon Phoenix bedsheet, so buying it is like wasting $$. My bf likes traditional red things but I dun want our bedroom to become China-looking leh.

My parent's house is at Sengkang Compassvale. My 2 friends stay at Fernvale.

Happiness is right that many men will not seek ED treatment due to their ego. Manhood = Ego
Why one wants sex often and the other can't offer it? Example one wants sex 3 times per week but the other only wants sex 1 time per month. There are real cases happening like that one. Sometimes can improve with sex toys &amp; seduction etc., sometimes cannot. There are many websites on these topics haha.

It's better to buy queen size bed lah. The divan model (queen) costs just $40 more than single bed models
U can also use it in new house. Ok I shall try to look for u at expo. I'll probably go there for Watsons fair next sunday nite hehe. I'll be buying my bedframe from beds.com, as I dun think other furniture shops will offer better deals. Beds.com doesn't have a showroom so they save a lot on showroom rental.
I'm pondering if I should buy the bedroom furniture set (bedframe, dressing table, wardrobe, side table) at $699 or buy an individual bedframe at $299?

I'm going to temporily stay at Bf's Jurong house for about 6 months before moving into our resales house (getting Jurong).

1. Buying bedroom furniture set is cheaper than buying the furnitures separately.

2. I don't know the price difference of hiring lorry to move
__i. the bedframe and bookshelf (Not buying bedroom furniture set)
__ii. bedframe, dressing table, wardrobe, side table
Does i. and ii. cost the same?

I need some advice from you gals. Thanks.

New Member
I've just sent you an invite

that's lucky! to have good weather...the weather is so very cranky these days. Glad that you enjoyed your PS experience!


New Member
Rach, ok will check out the website first before confirming order with fren’s fren.
Happiness, me and fh planning to buy the maxcoil orthopedic with pocketed spring and with latex one We saw at the mega mattress at taman jurong, selling only $1099 leh. and it comes with 2 free pillows and mattress protector.

Maxcoil is from Sweden or Switzerland. King koil is from USA I think (if I remb correctly) and magic coil is local brand. Initially I also very skeptical abt maxcoil, cos I saw in other threads, bad comments abt the mattress and after sales service. Den when I went to compare, I find it still ok leh. the maxcoil mattress which we wanted to buy, is similar to king koil one particular model, feels abt the same, materials used also latex and pocketed spring, but king koil price was $1699. $600+ more than max coil.

Wah viva, so good, you got the coral spring?? Me and fh applied, cldnt get. Sianz. Wat was ur queue no. at tat time?

As for the an chuan thingy, depends on ur MIL and ur mum lor. If they say can omit, den omit lor. An chuan must choose date one, den after an chuan, cannot sleep on the bed at all until wedding date le.

Rach, tmr ur GDL. Must share share abt the happening on dat day ok.

Green, I think buying the whole set is relatively cheaper than buying separately right? Plus the delivery cost will be one time charge only.

Ive already planned to spend the whole of 2nd aug at expo liao. haha
