hmm.. my mother is not getting any tables from MIL.. then my MIL asked my hubby.. if my mother want pin jin 5k how? I feel so upset abt it.. I believe my mum will not want 5k.. but the thought of she not willingly to give 5k upset me..

Lost>wah, can understand how you feel. Maybe get both moms to meet and discuss? Perhaps your FMIL just wants to know a rough amount so she can prepare the neccessary cash?

actually.. my thinking.. since my mum not getting the tables.. meaning that she is going to return us the ang pows.. then my MIL no need to pay for my mum's tables to us.. (say 6 tables - 5k)

taking the below items issit too much?
2 liquor
12 oranges
48 boxes of cakes (cos i got many relatives)
the long feng candles
pin jin (MIL put how much we yisi yisi take)
2 boxes of pig cans
SDJ (depends what my MIL get for me)
nanny ang pow
front pig trotters (for my mother only)

any comments?

Lost>you still need to return some of the stuff to her right? Actually, I donno what I'll be getting for my GDL. Leave it entirely to the moms. Don't want to get stressed or unhappy over it.

My parents are not asking for any tables too and the banquet will be paid fully by FH and I so FMIL don't have to pay for it.

Opps.. sorry.. typo error.. can't delete.. i mean your bf photography.. hee..

Hi Nec - For your Greece trip last time, is it a F&E or package tour? Wonder if it will be easy to do F&E, & to go to Turkey as well..

YL,

I think no need to try lah. I'll just get an A cup. So
1. do u want me to meet u to go together
2. can u buy for me first then I collect fr you
3. U order for me, make arrangement w kim to leave it w her then I go and collect it on my own?
$50 is a good deal leh.

hmm... But hor, nubra hv a few variation one issit? I heard wat featherlite etc... which one's better for someone who's not so well endowed?? keke...


I just went to a store in Jurong west that sells wedding stuff. The person there will ask u ur dialect group and advise on what u need, and gather all the materials required and teach u how to use them. Do go there if you stay in the west, hvn't prepared your GDL and AD traditional stuff and r clueless abt wat to do. I dunno whether the things there are considered cheap or expensive, but my mum spent abt $250 there.

it's at Jurong west st 52, blk 506. Tel 65660311.

mei,
everyone in sch?? that's a lot of ppl. but that's nice to have lotsa friends with you on your big day. after accomodating relatives and family friends, fh n i only left with 7 tables for our own friends and colleagues. lol.. too bad intercon's max is 40 tables.

btw mei,
since you have so many pics why dun wanna have more pages then your layout won't be so cluttered.

vivien,
did you pay a lot for st regis? sorry i abt blur. never hear of that hotel before. but very nice to have everything personalised. =)

angelina,
gd luck meeting your PIL. =)

i don't interact much with my PIL. so when i hang out with them i still feel a bit awkward. plus i'll be moving in with them. i'm naturally shy so need a very LONG time to warm up to ppl.

hmm ... the article abt the couple... it says the couple's combined income is $6000 a mth.
How can they afford a $600k flat?!?!?

Maybe this could b a blessing in disguise. So tt they dun hv to slog their whole life and scrimp and save just to pay off the loan. $8000 might just be a small amt compared to wat they'ld hv to pay in interest to service the loan...

YL, strawclare,

it's really ridiculous lor. $8k income buy $600k flat. They shld increase the income ceiling mah. Even if I hv combined 10k income, I'm also doubtful of whether I can afford a $600k flat leh.

Sians, I'm also stuck leh. dun think i can take hdb loan. it's crazy lor. Imagine ur combined income is $8100, u still hv to take a bank loan leh. Really frustrating lor.

keer,
we did F&E.
fr greece, many cruises to turkey.
so you can take a few days in turkey, then return to greece or fly back from turkey.

this is what i'm trying to say:
sin-athens-greek island #1-greek island #2-turkey-sin

greek islands are wonderful places to explore. ;)
lovely beaches, gorgeous mountains, some have very happening night life, some are quaint villages (but dinner is from 10pm onwards, so there is night life still)

st regis is a new 6star hotel just started end last year.their pakage is kinda high, higher then ritz, but as my dates most hotel taken up so no choice only left with them.
they go by per person charges not per table, so i also must get my guest list clear.
another thing i like abt them is their serving,it is per person serving,flower piece will stay on e table throughtout e night, unlike other hotels, they remove d flower piece once e dinner start inorder to put the dishes.
Any brides not having 3 yam seng? can share yr emcee scripts?how e emcee handle with 1 yamseng yet saying out e 3 yamseng meaning.
 
Dor,
Yalor govt wants more babies but we have no house to make babies leh! Life is getting so stressful & exp in Singapore. I will have same prob as u next yr, canot get hdb loan.

Combined income $6k, hw come afford a $600k flat??? Pay until die liao also cannot finish paying la. Aiyo

I hate living in sg! Expenses are getting higher and higher!! Here stupid govt wan ppl to take public transport, den on the other hand, they building more roads. Wat’s their problem now? Wan ppl to take public transport. Yet build more roads for vehicles. Everyday the trains and buses so crowded. Wan encourage ppl take public transport, den add more trains and make the trains longer la. Irritating. Petrol prices keep rising… den nw drop a few cents only. Nw one old chang kee curry puff costs $1.20. it was only $1 before. Sorry, me jus complaining. Jus sick of the life here

Yeah must take care lor. Sianz leh, eat the medicine until super sian. Dun even knw hw and when bacterial attack.

Wah only Citibank card can ar? My Citibank card cannot sign $4k liao leh. haha. Dbs card got any promotion mah? Samsonite is very good.

Dor>I don't mind any of your 3 options. You decide then tell me. Featherlite is the light-weight one but not much padding. Super-padded is the one I got. Like a normal bra only with adhesive inside. You can read about the diff at http://reviews.ebay.com/FAQs-on-the-NuBra-Silicone-Adhesive-Bras_W0QQugidZ10000000004003560QQ_trksidZp3286.c0.m17

Dor>I know what you mean. What to do. My friends who have combined of more than 8K feel v cheated. Sg citizens but cannot buy direct from HDB, not entitled to the HDB grant of 30/40K and oso cannot get HDB loan. But yet, they are not earning enough to be able to afford a private condo...

I can share my 'motto' regarding invites??
Invite people whom you love and who love you. I feel this is the most important part of your wedding. in this case, everyone who is at your wedding will be truly happy for you and you sure can feel it.

Meiling,
i'm receiving so many email alerts from multiply regarding your layout....you really do have many pics!! and the layouts are really nice...some of them i feel are very you. No lah, dun keep the albums in storeroom...place them in living room so you and your guests can cont to browse through them

Gals,
How long does the whole resale process take? From Option to Purchase to last Appointment. I need to plan when to start viewing units &amp; when to apply HLE letter? The HLE letter is only valid for 3mths, what if it expires at the last Appointment?

Thanks.

Hi everyone, I'm back :D Just did my PS on Wed, blessed with terrific weather. It was lots of fun, and we didn't tire ourselves out with too many locations, stuck to a temple down the road from the BS, Botanic Gardens and an abandoned colonial house. My best friend came along as my helper and was invaluable. She took so many photos my camera ran out of battery and we had to switch to hers! Ha ha, kudos also to our PG who was nice enough to let her snap away in the background (I mean, in the end, you can't beat the pro what). Also, because I didn't take the outdoor gown but wore my own gown, the BS let me take my AD EG out, which was great cos the colour looks so nice in daylight, yay!
