Hi Jo_vin,

My AD is 30 Nov. My BS suggested taking in the seventh month which I rather not, so taking on the 1st day of the eighth month. BS mentioned that it is enuff time for the album to be ready. Keping my fingers crossed for that. Becos I lost weight since my 2nd measurement in July, my mtm gown got to altered again.My next appt is on 27th, got to finalise outdoor gown and other outfit for PS...praying hard...

i din know nite must also carry flowers. i dun think i will hold bouquet of flowers during march in, cos i scare i will trip and fall. haha. i'm also a clumsy person. plus nervous, sure sweaty palms. scarly hold flowers, den the stem dripping water cos my palms sweaty. hahahaha

went with my mum to city plaza to see her evening dress. in the end, we decided to buy the cheongsam cum evening dress kind. top part is something like cheongsam, but bottom is evening dress kind. very nice, and most impt, it's also not very expensive. plus a very nice shawl, total $240. oh and it's red colour.

Yes, the gowns are all so so so pretty! And imagine that I have to say goodbye to those kind of dresses after wedding. Sad.

jo_vin (jo_vin): Hmm... getting slim through illness is definitely very unhealthy. However, I guess you will look better in the photos. For me, I actually gained weight since the first fitting of my dress!

I have just selected my pictures for my album. A total of 90 pictures! I dun know how much I have to add for the pages.

Lyrics:

SONG: If You're Not The One
Artist: Daniel Bedingfield


If you’re not the one then why does my soul feel glad today?
If you’re not the one then why does my hand fit yours this way?
If you are not mine then why does your heart return my call
If you are not mine would I have the strength to stand at all

I never know what the future brings
But I know you are here with me now
We’ll make it through
And I hope you are the one I share my life with

I don’t want to run away but I can’t take it, I don’t understand
If I’m not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am?
Is there any way that I can stay in your arms?

<font color="0000ff">If I don’t need you then why am I crying on my bed?
If I don’t need you then why does your name resound in my head?
If you’re not for me then why does this distance maim my life?
If you’re not for me then why do I dream of you as my wife?</font>

<font color="aa00aa">I don’t know why you’re so far away
But I know that this much is true
We’ll make it through
And I hope you are the one I share my life with
And I wish that you could be the one I die with
And I pray in you’re the one I build my home with
I hope I love you all my life</font>

I don’t want to run away but I can’t take it, I don’t understand
If I’m not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am
Is there any way that I can stay in your arms?

‘Cause I miss you, body and soul so strong that it takes my breath away
And I breathe you into my heart and pray for the strength to stand today
‘Cause I love you, whether it’s wrong or right
And though I can’t be with you tonight
You know my heart is by your side

<font color="ff0000">I don’t want to run away but I can’t take it, I don’t understand
If I’m not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am
Is there any way that I can stay in your arms?</font>

hi hi. Thanks very much Shirlin.
I had spoken to her, find that she is very nice and friendly.

By the way, how to you get to know her?

Just out of curiosity, will you find it risky since it will be your AD and moreover you had not tried her before?

Hi Cfay,

Same thing, I got to know her thru' a web adv. I have tried her for my PS. She was good and gave personalised service, thus I decide to engage her again. : )

If you aren't sure, perhaps can engage her service before your AD to try out.

mei (pinkcupcake): Yah... it was a rather tedious selection... From 50pictures x 8 folders to 90 pictures and maybe streaming them further to 50... I can't imagine.

However, there is a saying that one should only wear her wedding gown once.. Sigh.. If only we have such balls for us to wear such beautiful dresses!

how's weekend? guess weekend is so precious now.. and reserved for wedding stuff hor hahaha...

Map: don't spend too much money on just map.. don't worth... for me my hubby serch online and got a copy of map, he also check where's the nearby carpark and charges, so we use words to DIY and trial print out. Will be sending the paper to normal printing shop (photocopy) the no. we need and ask them to cut to the size we want.... hope to get this done by today. The map is more for driver ... coz mine is at city area where jam and lack of carpark issue :p ... Rem if you are DIY must trial print.. coz the map you see on monitor and print out might be different... the charges should be less than $10 for 400pc

Wine: just count the cost lor.. is not trouble to get supplier outside at all. The shop in TYP will do all the arrangement for you. They coordinate the venue direct (just let your cord. know) you paid before hand but is 100% cosignment so you can get back the cash after wedding if there is too much left over... Order from hotel will of coz most easy the hotel will just supply the wine and charge with your wedding bill...(tends to be more ex) normal outside you are able to get wine that is $15-20. if your hotel charge 1 bottle $30 for 10 bottle is already 300 where get from outside you can get half the price.. so .. it depends if you wanna save? is the hotel wine worth that much (since you have the corkage fee waived)

Lynn: jia you la... is the final stage of your wedding preparation liao.. all the effort will worth
happy.gif


Just for you ladies info ya... for those who buying own wine in.... there is actually standard bottle 750ml, there is also bigger size like 1L, 1.5L bottle... and it will depends your venue how they charge you for corkage.... when they say 1 bottle/table corkage fee waived.. they should be referring to the standard 750ml one... But you can try ask them if 1.5L is possible or the 1L... or how they count it....

If your venue allow other size:
in order to save money.. you go by Liter... meaning 1 corkage= 0.75L ? or 1 corkage = 1.5L .....
Coz after all vol is impt..

So when you see it will be:
1 corkage = 0.75L = $18 -> $24/Liter of wine
1 corkage = 1.5L = $30 -> $20/Liter of wine

ok.. happy saving money.... I saved almost $200 by doing the calculation :p
