yup yup... in fact now i prefer nubra to the usual ones :p But during the gown collection i will try wearing the seamless one and see how it fits, coz seamless nubra aint tat thick

tell your helpers dun peep while you change :p

Haha they cannot peep much cos my boobs too small.

I've still been growing in size, too much mooncakes and icecream these weeks. :p Photoshoot is next month. Think I'll just rely on the Photo editing software to edit off my fats LOL. How I wish it's my bank account that's growing instead!
I only have 2 jiemeis plus my sister. My bf only has 2 brothers. Do you have siblings to be your backup jiemeis?

I have 2 other friends who volunteer to be my jiemeis but I rejected them cos I feel paiseh to ask them to take leave on my weekday AD.

Hi ladies

Regarding the Max's Cafe catering... For my company event, I paid based on per pax but for my personal events such as BBQ and birthday party, I gave him the budget and he proposed accordingly...

So far never seen pork dishes but they got wine and beer hence I think not halal bah....

Mr Sim very friendly de.. U can call him for a quote.. very flexible too... =)

Dun think you'll get to see this msg today. But CONGRATS!!!!

My AD is this Sunday. Still quite a bit of stuff to do. Hvnt collected my gown and photographs. Hvn't settled the schedule for the day. Speech. Mani Pedi. Prepare Sabo items. etc etc etc...

I've decided not to use nubra liao. Went for fitting the other day and they used masking tape to tape for me. Better than nubra!!

Really stressed out the past few days. Now feeling the heat. So worried that I'll forget things or something will go wrong. Had a lot of disagreements w my bf regarding the details for AD. my FMIL are so excited abt it, they seem to take it into their own hands to decide things for us before informing us.



New Member
sotong my dear...
i drool over those bollywood hunks, then faster ask my FH what's their names, so i can get more of their movies....lol.
i also drool over some of the babes....love their bodies and the way they dance man...
so super sexy....!!!!


New Member
spoiltbabe>hee, ya. like the freedom it gives. You got the seamless nubra too? Is it supportive? I thought of getting it but Kim said the support not as good so encouraged me to get the superpadded as extra instead.

neko>hee, lucky u retook your PS photos. At least u r happy with them now.

strawclare>wah, how come u got free outdoor shot? so lucky.
I saw some of Linli's outdoor albums. V nice! I don't understand wad bimbo?


New Member
I know u r all busy now... but can help give me some suggestions..

I'll be having my ROM solemnisation before my cocktail and dinner starts this sunday evening. As my parents are divorced, I'll not have my father to walk me in. I can't find any pageboy as my nephew is very shy and refuses to do so.

So... how should I make my entrance? Should I walk in myself, walk in together w my bf when the emcee announces, or simply mingle w guests b4 the ceremony and simply stand in place w my bf without any marching in. Does the above sound wierd?

Also, do I wear my veil?

Really clueless abt it.

And where can I find the vows? Would like to read through a few times before the actual day in case I can't hear the solemniser clearly..

Thanks all!!!


New Member
Dor>I know what you mean! I'm not that excited about the wedding but have prepared a rough schedule already. But my BIL is like a military sergeant. Want to make me sit down, go through the whole itinerary, want me to listen to the mc speech, question me about the carpark coupons. can pengsan. anyway, agreed to go over n answer all his questions on Fri. Hope after that, he'll not nag me anymore.

Collecting my CS and gowns today.


New Member
Dor>I'm either going to march in with FH or mingle with guests then just stand in place for the ROM. Haven't really decided. Will see how that day. But definitely not going to hide cos i don't like to make grand entrances. Think my veil will b pulled back bah. Donno. See how my MUA do my hair.

Have you talked to your JP about the vows? Mine gave us 2 choices. Either use the standard vow or do our own. FH say we just use the standard vow. If you want that, I can search my email see if I still have it.


New Member
Nec>I used to sit through the long bollywood movies just to beo the guys too. But now TV doesn't seem to show le so v long never watch. :p


New Member

New Member
lsntyl> wah.. then i must be a military sergeant.. i wanted my HTB to sit down and go thru the iternary, agenda one by one... but he refuses say no need... when come to the bridge it will be straightened!! so now, i dun even know what will happen that day..

New Member
tt's wat's exactly happening to me. Everyday I'll ask him abt the details and he'll always tell me "relax, no need to plan until so detail one, on the day I'll know what to do"

But the fact yesterday when we met the coordinator, he doesn't even know wat's going on lor.


New Member

New Member
hi ladies
yan palace catering isn't expensive, about $8 per head. they have lesser dishes, about 6..but its quality..
my 2 cents..


New Member
rem someone asking for cake design.. maybe is too late but this web got quite alot of design

chXXXerylshuen.com/wedCakes017.html (Remove the XXX)
If I'm you, I'll just march in with my bf. My family is not on good terms with my dad, so it'll be weird to march in with him holding my hands, it'll look kinda fake :p


New Member

Fanny>maybe I'm just impatient bah. Felt like he was questioning me. :p

Blinktulip>what cup size you wear? If B, I can sell you my brand new nude superpadded nubra. Letting go at $50, then price I got it from. If you get yourself from the pushcart in Suntec, will cost 70+

New Member
fanny>hee, but for me, I planned the itinerary le mah. and stuff like parking coupons, etc all settled le. Got irritated when my FBIL started questioning me. Machiam I donno what to do like tat. :p

I know its likely cos he's concerned. But I'm the one doing all the planning. My FBIL just need to follow the itinerary I gave him. Nothing more mah.

my FH was watching with me and shaking his head all the time...heheheh....

ballet is gonna make your thighs and calves very big. last time i danced ballet, develop powerful thigh, calves and even shin muscles (can see when we meet), not sexy one!!!!
i danced so long ago, like 10 years ago, but until now, the muscles refuse to disappear!!
